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.
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!
