Strongest Player Cultivation Chapter 8

After reading this chapter, I’ve but lost all motivation to continue translating this. You’ll know why once you start reading this chapter. After you finish reading this chapter, I’d appreciate if you’d leave your opinion on whether you’ll continue reading this before you go on your merry way. I’ll at least translate until after the first instance or two is over before I move on to the next teaser, but I don’t have high hopes for this novel anymore.

Strongest Player Cultivation Chapter 7

I’ve been spending all my free time playing Final Fantasy 14 these days. It’s the first MMORPG I’ve been so absorbed after MapleStory, that’s been more than 10 years since I got really into an online game. Most of the online games out there these days are really awful, they are just out there to squeeze your wallet dry with the gacha and RNG elements. Take Genshin Impact for example, the latest MMO craze, like eww… dirty gacha game.

All gacha games have a few things in common, you have limited energy you can use each day, you can only get the best weapons and characters via gacha, you need to get multiple copies of each weapon or character to upgrade them, and they’re all very grindy, as in you have to farm materials to upgrade your weapons or characters.

Strongest Player Cultivation Chapter 4

I feel so fat, I can literally feel the bulge on my tummy getting bigger by days. I have an unhealthy lifestyle… My life cycle everyday: Wake up, eat, sit down and work, lunch, sit down and work, dinner, sit down and read novels or play games, eat more, sleep.

And I only exercise for like 3-5 minutes every 2 weeks. Holy moly! I need more motivation to exercise. Send halp!

[New Teaser] Strongest Player Cultivation

I promised to publish a new teaser after finishing volume 1 of My Loli Dude, and here it is! We put up a poll on our Discord server and 19 out of 48 of you chose After Genderswap Reincarnation, I Raised the Strongest Player, also known as Strongest Player Cultivation.

I know what some of you might be thinking, the title is different from when I first announced the novel, well, that’s because it is! The title and synopsis sometimes don’t make sense until you actually started to read or translate the chapters. That’s why we’ve been holding on publishing this for a while since we wanted to make sure we get the title right.

I’ve secretly published the first two chapters already over the last 2 weeks in case you haven’t noticed. Those who actually found it, kudos to you, but for those who haven’t, here are three new chapters for you to absorb! Enjoy!

The Saintess Chapter 22

Remember the other teasers I was talking about 2 weeks ago? Well, I already did the first two chapters but I haven’t published them because we’re still actually stumped by the novel title.

We’re going back and forth between The Rise of the Strongest Female Reincarnation Player or After Genderswap Reincarnation, I Raised the Strongest Player. These two titles have a completely different nuance so we can’t afford to mess it up. One implies that her reincarnation self will become the strongest while the latter means that her past-self will be stronger than her. That’s one of the main reasons why we’re holding off on releasing the chapters, we wanted to be absolutely certain which is going to be the case. Though right now we’re strongly inclined to the second option.

The Saintess Chapter 21

Do you ever have a day when your brain just shut down and you can’t think of any intelligible thoughts or words? Well, that happens a lot when you’re translating, there are days when your brain works super well and the chapters come out super nice, but there are also bad days when your brain just don’t want to cooperate and you spent hours longer than usual to complete a single chapter because you weren’t able to form the words that you wanted to convey. It really sucks when that happens, makes me just want to say screw it all and leave the job for another day.

Here it is folks! The last chapter of My Loli Dude volume 1! Hope you enjoyed the teaser thus far! If you wish to see the continuation of this novel, please make sure to keep your eyes peeled for any poll announcement and cast your vote for the cute loli.

On another note, according to popularity vote at our discord server (https://discord.gg/re-library), it seems like my favorite choice won, yay~ Starting next week, I’ll be translating The Rise of the Strongest Female Reincarnation Player. For now, enjoy the last chapter of My Loli Dude volume 1.

The Saintess Chapter 19

I have an interesting debate here for you all. What do you all think of the terms “trap”? To me, it’s simply a slang term used in the anime/manga community to refer to Otokonoko characters, along with other especially effeminate men. But in a different community, the trans community, so to say, it is a derogatory term to them. The moment I brought it up, I unintentionally triggered a war between the two factions.

One side argued that it is some bs that reddit mods came up with long, long, long after the term came into use and that they couldn’t find anything that connects between trap and trans. They explained that the (anime/manga) community that uses this term does not use it to refer to trans people in the first place, but rather to refer explicitly to men that look like women

While the other side argued that the trans people do not like that term as it is used against them as a slur and continued to escalate why it’s offensive is because it has the obvious implication that a trap is tricking you. They go on to say that they have seen people use it in a derogatory sense. That they have seen people hurt by it, and how they understand why people don’t like it. Then they concluded by telling us to avoid the term to make someone’s life a little better.

What’s your take on it? By right, we are the anime/manga community, and we use the terms casually enough without any of the derogatory implications attached to it, but should we be avoiding the terms just to assuage the trans community?

Let the war commence! (Grabs my popcorns)
