Dragon Princess – Chapter 38

Gondor calls for aid!
Wait, not Gondor? What are these “readers?”
They’re calling for what, a chapter? Like a chapter of knights? A book, seriously?

Well, ehem, Readers call for a chapter of Dragon Princess!

Silva's Ranting Corner
Heya, this is Silva~ It has been a while since I last made any announcement of the sort, and a lot of ⓢⓗⓘⓣ has been catching up to me soon after I came back from my 1-week vacation. That’s why I will take this opportunity to rant in this corner for a little bit, so please bear with me and read to the end, if you care.

I’ll put them in easy to understand numbered list:
1. The Ancestor was sniped from us.

2. Sigma was caught using machine translation and fired as Demon Sword Maiden’s main translator.

3. Relocated Nexus to Demon Sword Maiden but he failed miserably (still have to pay him for the three chapters he did)

4. Relocated Nexus to Dragon Princess (good thing he managed to do better in Dragon Princess, but a little more discipline and punctuality would be nice, had me sweating cold-buckets when he only started translating the last 6 chapters just before the deadline)

5. Recruited Immortal Dreamer as the main translator for Demon Sword Maiden and he said he’d be able to provide all the chapters by the next week, so I paid him in advance since I would be on a trip the said week (still didn’t get the chapters after I get back from vacation)

5. Zzonkedd was down with gastro and real-life events kept him busy so he was unable to provide for Knight & Elf.

6. Recruited Aurum as a temporary translator for Knight & Elf, asked him to provide me with at least 1 ~3 chapters by last weekend but I barely managed to get him to provide me with a single chapter just a few hours before the scheduled release, it was honestly nervewracking.

7. Immortal Dreamer overworked himself to pay his bills but some of his employers aren’t able to pay him yet until the 1st week of December since their money is being managed by a different company. I agreed to pay him upfront again for the 2nd batch of Demon Sword Maiden chapters. (I have effectively paid him two months worth of chapters in advance now, both of which I still haven’t received a single chapter of)

8. Then since two weeks ago, I haven’t been getting any sign of a response from Immortal Dreamer. Now I’m just getting anxious since Demon Sword Maiden stockpile has run out. And I’m also really worried about the well being of Immortal Dreamer’s sudden disappearance.

I’ve been overthinking these past few days, thinking, what if Immortal Dreamer has overworked himself and collapsed? He had a history of being hospitalized for months due to poor health conditions, so that’s not really out of the question.

As you can see, it has been a rather stressful week for me since I came back from my vacation. I no longer have a stockpile for Knight & Elf series, and the chapters from Aurum are still pending. I also don’t have any stockpile left for Demon Sword Maiden, and still no news from Immortal Dreamer. I’m not worried that he will just run off with the money, he’s a nice guy and I’ve known him for a while, I trust him, even now. I’m just really concerned about his health.

After a nice long talk with the therapist, I’ve been advised to change my mindset to a more positive one, so while there is nothing I can do about Knight & Elf chapters but wait, I can at least look at Demon Sword Maiden in a more positive light, despite already paying the translator, so it’s still quite a bummer that I have to translate it myself, but it just means I’ll be back to square one, just like the time with only me and Sigma. But this time, it is me and Nexus. I will be translating Demon Sword Maiden, while Nexus will translate Dragon Princess, then I will do the translation check for Dragon Princess, and publish these chapters as usual. So yeah, nothing has changed, it’s just the same old pattern until either Immortal Dreamer gets back to us or I find a new translator for Demon Sword Maiden in the worst-case scenario.

Female Knight & Dark Elf – Chapter 33

Once again I am here to fill a box with I don’t know what…
hmm…
Have you heard the spherical cow joke?

Milk production at a dairy farm was low, so the farmer wrote to the local university, asking for help from academia. A multidisciplinary team of professors was assembled, headed by a theoretical physicist, and two weeks of intensive on-site investigation took place. The scholars then returned to the university, notebooks crammed with data, where the task of writing the report was left to the team leader. Shortly thereafter the physicist returned to the farm, saying to the farmer, “I have the solution, but it works only in the case of spherical cows in a vacuum.”

It is very funny.

On another note, it’s about time for me to clean more Rhapsody of Mulan chapters. If there’s interest in watching (kinda boring unless there’s a hard sfx or something), I guess I could stream it in the Discord…

Female Knight & Dark Elf Chapter 30

Well, Silva’s letting me do an advert here, so…

Hi, I’m Dex and I run TL;DR a scanlation group. We are a volunteer group focused on bringing series we love to English. Currently, we do School Shock and Rhapsody of Mulan. In the past, we also did Miao Shou Xian Dan until it got sniped.

We (mostly me as we are of few people) are looking to recruit some more people, mostly translators (TLs), though other positions are open (especially if we do get a TL) for getting at least 1 chapter out per month. Now, as we are volunteers we don’t have money, though a patreon may be opened in the future, it’s primary purpose will be paying for raws so I can’t promise anything outside of that.

-A Japanese TL for Hori-san to Miyamura-kun, the webcomic with bad handwriting that the Hormiya manga is based on, has a different story in some places.
-A Chinese TL for School Shock to help the current TL who has gotten busy IRL.
-A Chinese TL for The Balls of The Elves, a gender bender series.

For joining TLs, we’re willing to PR/TS/CL a series of your choice as well if you translate it 😛

Dragon Princess Chapter 32

Hello, is this thing on?
It is, great! Hi, I’m Dex and I guess I’m publishing this series now.

Silva:
Right, so I just got back from my vacation. If you follow us on Discord, then you probably already know this, but due to my friend’s fickle mind, we had last-minute changes to our plan and extended our vacation for a few days. It was then I realized that it would be too rush of a job to edit this chapter and publish it on the same day that I got back, so I just pushed the publishing to Deximus.

With that said, Deximus will now be the official publisher for Dragon Princess and Female Knight & Dark Elf. Well damn, now that left me with nothing to publish… guess I’ll just work on increasing our already low volume of stockpile due to taking a week-long vacation…
