Maou No Hajimekata Volume 1 Chapter 9 Part 4

Warning: A little long… (but please read >.<) (Not a regular chapter just a motivated chapter)

Guys, it’s Nefarian here. This is one of the novels I started out translating from scratch from the prologue because the previous translator was using machine translations and while I fully appreciate all the efforts the previous translator has spent, many of you including me were concerned about the quality of the translations.

One really funny point I thought I’d share is that some of the sex scenes were translated incorrectly and when one of the “girls” were supposed to be talking, it was translated as “Aur speaking” (imagine what you guys may have been fapping to lelelel~) this and along with not erasing the majority of Japanese characters made the translations very erratic and hard to read.

If I hadn’t started from the beginning again, this novel would have easily exceeded the manga and entered volume 2 or perhaps close to volume 3 of the novel. This would have definitely helped to increase the viewership but I chose not to do this (haha not sure if it’s a mistake). Even now just checking jet pack statistics I know that this novel is not very popular, probably due to the manga being ahead (the good news is that it’s catching up)….  So I’ll be really excited to tell you guys when it exceeds the manga.

I was also reading through the comments of the previous chapter before going to bed the other day, and I must tell you guys that I really really appreciate the kind words of encouragement and support by all of you who commented in that chapter and it really motivated me to continue translating this novel and pump out this extra special chapter today~

I don’t normally say this, but I probably should make it a habit so: if you enjoyed Maou no Hajimekata thus far on this site. Please leave a 5 star like or even better write a good review at Novel Updates. I noticed that the series is gradually declining in rank as it was 4.1 before and it is now 4.0.

Every time I see the “outdated comment” of how the translation for this series sucks and how this series is shallow just ticks me off because I know that this is actually one of the top notch novels out there that have very descriptive and in-depth battle scenes, interesting and witty dialog, titillating erotic scenes, over the top and shocking moments of extreme violence, there is also the very dirty and underhanded methods of guerrilla warfare.

To top it all off the Main Character of the series is Aur, is a nefarious but very intelligent schemer who is able to use his evil plans to achieve his goals in a variety of thought-provoking ways. His final goal is to be able to create an unbeatable dungeon and to rule over it as the one and only Demon King. (for Nefarian it doesn’t get any better than this: It ticks every single box and it’s like Game of Thrones became a Japanese light novel, the ultimate erotic fantasy adventure to become the King of the Iron Throne~)

*A final word from me: If you guys can raise the ranking from the current 4 stars to 4.5 out of 5 stars on Novel Updates I am willing to break my back and go totally crazy for 1 week of Maou no Hajimekata – How to get Started as the Demon King. If it does go to 4.5 stars (I will momentarily halt all other translations for one (1) week and go ape-shit to catch up to the current Manga)! More so than actually giving me a donation for this series, it would mean much to me if you did the series justice and give it a good review.

Nuff said Please Enjoy !



  1. dont worry about whatever they say…a lot of people support you just like me…i really enjoy this novel…thank you for your good work like always….

  2. come on every one
    just another 69 votes on the 5 stars and we have mean of 4.5 again
    also very vote below 5stars will make the mean drop again
    especially the 1 stars 10 votes there and we are back to 4.1
    sorry for not being able to vote my self though… sorry

    so come on just a little more
    (there are just 4 reviews but they are all
    at least already halve a year old )
    good luck!

  3. new update 62 votes for 5 stars left
    we need a total of 187 votes of 5 stars to achieve 4.5
    horray for new (fallen) heroes

  4. correction I meant 187 votes out of 248 votes are for 5 stars

  5. update only 52 votes for 5 stars left
    just a little more everyone we are at 4.4
    reminder don’t vote below 5 stars the rating will drop

  6. also if any one was wondering we need 24799964 votes for 5 stars to get 5 out of 5

  7. new update
    there 4 new votes 3=5star, 1=4star
    meaning the rating rose by 3 and dropt by 1= rose by 2 in total
    meaning we lost one vote so I remind you don’t vote below 5 stars
    the rating drops
    the ratio is we need 188 votes of 5 stars out of 250 votes
    count down is at 50
    just a little more

  8. also I don’t know if you include rounding up in your evaluation of the rating as I only counted the exact amount needed for achieving 4.5 rating.
    if you do then you only need 166 out of 228 for 5 stars giving a rating of 4.45175
    and a count down of 28 votes for 5 stars
    this is a question

    • I’m not to sure about all the complicated stuff, but if I see it as the number 4.5 on Novel updates, that’s good enough for me~

      Also don’t post too much on other pages that is not Maou no Hajimekata related >.< I can see that you really love the novel but still don't spam other pages on this site. Thank you "I am"

  9. So uhm..
    do you mind if I keep updating how far we are on this page then?
    just say a count down as there are only 20 votes still needed, most likely; at most 42.
    if you don’t reply I will take that as a no.
    sorry for being a bother

    • You are not being a bother to me! you can most certainly update here or on the most recent Maou Chapter if you wish~

      Just don’t post the updates on other categories e.g. Himekishi, or Living Cheat.

  10. ok first update
    we will only need another 15 votes to reach 4.5
    all votes below 5 stars drop the rating
    good luck

  11. and congratulations
    you have reached 4.5/5.0 rating
    it took you 1 week to change the rating drastically
    also if you intend to get a rating of 5/5 you only need another 24-25 million votes (24000000-25000000)
    Ok I admit it is a little high fetched but you can always try
