  1. thanks for the update.

  2. Seeing as the source is mentioned as the WN I assume it is so. Or is it by chance the LN?

    • From what I understand, the WN is the one being translated. If I’m wrong please correct me on this, not 100% sure on this myself.

  3. so what happened to this light novel? is it going to continue?

  4. So the author already finished it? How much chapters were there? 😮

    • Hundreds of chapters hehe, you can check the exact amount by clicking the link above to Syosetsu, and counting it one by one I suppose.

  5. Err i like this novel but…why do you part a chapter in 4,5 parts? This is hard to translate?

  6. Out of curiosity, how many chapters and volumes are out right now?

  7. Dude, I think you need to update the chapter links.

  8. Thanks for the new chapters but this is way too slow:( at this rate i Will have to wait for years before this translation catch up to the manga…

  9. How often will this update? This series has great potential and I would love to read it. Currently I only get the manga and its not as in depth.

  10. ReadingInTheDark

    is this a teaser or you guys picking up but cant fit into current scedule?(the quality difference in the chapter 8pt2 brought tears of joy to my eyes and id like to see more XD)

    • Thanks for the kind words, this is an active project, but you just have to wait as you can see I currently have 5 projects, and schedules have yet to be finalized, the goal is though at least one chapter a week for each project.

      • ReadingInTheDark

        sounds like a plan :< #mybodyisready *my mind , my mind dont misunderstand XD

      • If it’s not too much to ask, could you retranslate everything before Chapter 8 Part 2? Seriously, you’re level of quality is far superior to the previous translator… Some people don’t even give this LN a chance because of the horrible translations… Though, I understand if you’re not willing to do it. ^^ It’s already difficult to schedule things, since you have five projects!

  11. Thank for picking up the stuff i like without me asking it anywhere (get our of my brain!)
