Last Embryo Reader’s Poll

As you can see we have an unusual post here today, and that is because we at LNT would like to humbly request your help regarding one of the possible new titles we could pick up for translation, that title being Last Embryo, a sequel to another light novel some of you might be familiar with, Mondaiji-tachi ga Isekai kara Kuru Sou Desu yo by Tatsunoko Taro

Why are we making such a post in the first place? Because the current situation of the translation of this novel is a bit… unusual. The fist 3 volumes of this novel have been translated by other translator, Frozensama, but he dropped it entirely in December 2019 , you can find more information on it here:

With that being the case, we’ve been discussing the possibility of taking the translation of this novel over, but ended up being split almost 50-50 as to whether we should start over form volume 1 or continue from volume 4, and that’s why we decided it would be best to hand this matter to you, our dear readers. Below you’ll find a link to a poll with a single question: should we start over from volume 1, or perhaps volume 4? If you’d be so kind as to take a few minutes out of your busy schedules to help us set this matter straight, the whole crew at LNT would greatly appreciate that.

**!!!UPDATE!!!**

Dear Readers, thank you so much for participating in our poll so actively. The poll itself is now closed, and the result are as follows:

For those of you who might have trouble displaying the image properly, here: a brief summary:

A total of 153 people participated in the poll across the span of last week, with 79 people (52,3%) voting in favor of starting over from volume 1, and 73 people (48,3%) voting in favor of continuing from volume 4 onward. That means that when LNT will take on Last Embryo, we shall start from the beginning… no, from zero! (Forgive the Re:Zero pun, it was too good of an occasion not to use it). Once again, thank you all for your participation, and let’s meet again when our take on this novel goes into full swing!

Until we meet again, stay safe and don’t let Corona-chan get to you. Embrace the way of the weeb and stay inside!

About DarkHeartedAlchemist

A Polish freelance translator/English Philology student/Light Novel author wannabe who ended up here while just casually strolling through the dark alleys of the internet. My romance with anime and manga began a decade ago with animes like Spice and Wolf, Code Geass, Toradora, Highschool of the Dead and Eureka Seven. When it comes to manga, my gateway was Fullmetal Alchemist, and my all-time favorite is Mochizuki Jun's Pandora Hearts, but I'm no stranger to some good old shounens o romantic comedies. Oh, and don't even get me started on all things hentai; if I had a dollar for every one that I watched/read, I would have made a fortune years ago *cheerful laughter slowly descending into worried one* ... please send help, there might still be some hope for me. Tasteless jokes aside, I hope you will find my translations to your liking, and if they manage to brighten up your day, even if just a little, then it means that I did my job right.

  1. Whats happening with their translations will the be erased???

  2. i havent read it myself (yet), but how good (or bad) is frozensamas translation? would it justify a complete retranslation or is it up to your standards?

      I am by no means an expert when it comes to rating the work of others, but at the very least is is a decent one, in my opinion. Definitely not something that would make you go [OMG how could someone publisg something like that], so it’s mostly about keeping the continuity and possible changes in the terminology, and to avoid the contant barrage of questions, like with Slave Harem.

  3. I read from frozensama before i liked his translation it was easy to understand, in last embryo i only have read the first volume but it was good enough for me and i’ve seem others that also think frozensama have a good translation, honestly i think it would be okay to start from volume 4

    I’ve read it so far….and i think it’s pretty good one…..I’m really looking forward for this novel…thank you for picking up this…regardless whether this will be translated from volume 1 or volume 4….

  5. I read mondaiji-tachi before and it is so good. I never tried reading the sequel since the released is pretty slow. So it will be very nice if u were to translate it.

  6. Yes, please translate this novel from volume 4!!! Please!!! I really wanted to keep reading last embryo, I feel like the fandom of this novel is too small and lost my hopes thinking anyone was going to pick it, but I really enjoy this novel.

  7. Try isekai ntr shin Yu no ona
