The Ancestor of our Sect Chapter 8

I tried reaching out to xaiomoge to resolve this conflict in chapter releases as peacefully as possible, but he does not seem intent to hand over the translation of this project to us nor is he willing to collaborate.

I do not have the intention to get into a petty fight over translation rights on a novel which we do not officially own, not only was that childish, it’s also very rude to the original author in question. I do not want to ruin this novel for the other readers due to a petty squabble between translators. So if the other translator really intended to bring the fight to us and steal this project from right under our wing, then we will just give it to him and find something else to pick up.

And I have to apologize for publishing chapter 7 before having the chapter edited. I was kind of wishing to take my time editing all the previous chapters and eventually edit chapter 7 before releasing it, but when I see xaiomoge releasing 5 chapters that day, I kind of panicked and released it prematurely. Anyway, all the previous chapters on Re:Library have now been proofread, though not mandatory, I do recommend giving them a read over, the story should now flow much better.

We also changed a few terms, which will all be listed below.

Dragon Princess Chapter 17

Is there any Pokemon fan here who still follow the animated series? In the latest episode of Pokemon Sun and Moon, Ash has finally won the championship competition of the Alola League. Many fans had been exclaiming how Ash has finally become a league champion after 20 years of adventure, but I digress otherwise.

I don’t see the Alola League as a proper league since basically everyone is free to participate without testing their skills first, like getting 8 badges before allowing to participate in the league. I see this more like the Orange League competition and Battle Frontier, where Ash wins in both of course.

Dragon Princess Chapter 16

I’m seriously gonna kill myself with bankruptcy if I keep agreeing to sponsor any more Gender Bender webnovel translation. First, it was Female Knight & Dark Elf, then followed by Not Sure, Another World Reincarnation, which will begin publication next month. And finally, The Ancestor of our Sect, which has an unknown status quo for now due to conflict with another translation group. I am allocating 100 bucks to each project per month, so that’s effectively 300 bucks monthly.

If you have the ability to, please support these projects on our Patreon page or add Re:Library to your Adblocker’s whitelist (if any). Every little bit helps ease up the torn in my pockets, thank you for your understanding and support~

Demon Sword Maiden Chapter 79

If you follow our recent news, and the webnovel “The Ancestor of our Sect Isn’t Acting like an Elder,” then you probably already know that Re:Library had planned to take up that as our 3rd Chinese Gender Bender project. But what WE ALL didn’t know was that, another translator was already working on this project. When I made an announcement on Re:Library about picking up this project, that other translator just released 5 chapters like hot cakes in a panic.

Which in turn, caused me to panic and released chapter 7 ahead of time. I tried getting in touch with the translator and suggest a collaboration, but he refused me, now I’m just scratching my head over what to do. He won’t give us a monopoly over the project, nor did he want to collaborate, what are we supposed to do?

[Pickup Series] The Ancestor of our Sect

Due to a certain request on this post, I’ve decided to try my luck at reaching out to the translator of The Ancestor of our Sect Isn’t Acting like an Elder. Honestly speaking, I wasn’t expecting anyone to reply as I left a comment on the translator’s site, but to my surprise, I did receive a reply about half a month later.

Since then, we’ve been in discussion about how we should push forward with the continuation of this series. In the end, it has been decided that Re:Library will be sponsoring this project. This is the third Gender Bender series sponsored by Re:Library, along with Female Knight & Dark Elf and Not Sure, Another World Reincarnation.

Those who visited Re:Library frequently should already know about our Project Gender Bender initiatives by now. I’ve been going out of my way to invite other Gender Bender translators to host their projects on this site in hope of one day making Re:Library into a Gender Bender Haven. As the first phase of our project, we are gathering supporters on Patreon and using the money earned to employ translators for hire.

The plan is going well, too well in fact, as we just gained three more new projects before reaching our goals on Patreon. So to be completely honest with you, I am paying for these three new projects from my own allowance. And also a special thanks to our sponsor, MechaCoin, who has donated an astounding 175 bucks to help fund these projects.

If you wish to support The Ancestor of our Sect and ensure the continuation of this novel, please head on to our Patreon page and make your pledge. For now, refrain from pledging to this project until we’re sure which direction this conflict with another translation group is taking us.

∴ P.S. I am aware another group just re-released the first four chapter, I need to have a talk with him.

Demon Sword Maiden Chapter 78

Once upon a time, there was many warning on social media telling us not to post our trip details and photos online to prevent housebreaking when you are away from home. However, that has never bothered me once since there will always be someone looking after the house even if I’m away.

Besides, I can’t just stay quiet about it when I go on a vacation and leave my readers hanging right? I’ll schedule the chapters well ahead of time so you don’t have to worry about the chapter release. I will be away for a short vacation during early November until mid-November.

Dragon Princess Chapter 15

Old News, I’m sure many anime fans are already aware of this, but Shield Hero is getting 2nd and 3rd season anime adaptation! YES!!! All we can hope is that there are 24 episodes per season for a total of 48 episodes. It’d be awful if there are actually only 12 episodes per season. I’d honestly be disappointed if that’s actually the case 😛

Dragon Princess Chapter 14

Looks like it’s still too soon to jump into the 2nd phase of Project Gender Bender, tried inviting a few translators, but we either received no reply or they still prefer to make their own blog the home base. Re:Library still do not have enough presence and popularity as some of the more popular sites out there so there is no appeal to the other translators out there.

The great Gender Bender Nation I envisioned is only my dream and it doesn’t necessarily have anything to do with the other translators. But that doesn’t mean I’m giving up. I will continue to build the foundation together with the patrons and one day, hopefully, the translators will come flocking to Re:Library on their own accord.

Demon Sword Maiden Chapter 76

Wew, 7th of September was probably one of the worst days of my life. Went to a neighbor country to pick up materials for work, after I picked up the materials and went to a different shop to buy tiles. It was then everything started to go wrong. The car malfunctioned and my phone battery dried up, I didn’t have a charger or power bank with me, and I also didn’t have much cash on hand after paying for all the work materials.

Had to run to the closest IT store to buy a USB-C charger with what I have left, find a place to recharge my phone, only to find the USB cable was not working (even though we did test it in the shop once), then I have to run back to the IT store to exchange the item. After my phone is charged for a few minutes, I had to call the mechanics, towing services, and transport back home. One whole day was wasted with no work done since I also had to call the workshop to take the materials back with them until my vehicle is fixed. Sob… The worst thing of all is that the 3 boxes of pizzas I ordered online and never got to buy.

Dragon Princess Chapter 13

Aww… this chapter is so heartwarming. My rating for this novel definitely raised with this chapter. I would have been disappointed otherwise if the author took the opposite route.

Just a kind reminder, if you wish to support Project Gender Bender but do not have the capital to donate towards our cause, you can also show your support by disabling your Adblocker while reading on Re:Library. Every little bit adds up and builds a mountain 😉

Dragon Princess Chapter 12

As Phase 2 of Project Gender Bender, I’m actually thinking of inviting other like-minded translators who do Gender Bender series like me to host on Re:Library. Thus expanding our selection of Gender Bender webnovel and bringing us one step closer to the Gender Bender Haven we all desired.

One of the translators I’m thinking of inviting is Estelion who does Wiseman, Game Addict, and Afternoon Nap, but I seem to recall Estelion being a machine translator with bad English skills, that’s half of the reason why I stopped reading Afternoon Nap and refrained myself from reading Game Addict.

If I am to invite Estelion, I believe there is a need to hire dedicated translation checker and editor to manage his work before we can publish them on Re:Library. That seems like a lot of work and investment in itself, considering how many unedited chapters had Estelion already published. 😬

What do you think, should I make the call to invite Estelion or nay?

Demon Sword Maiden Chapter 75

I think I’m gonna switch the schedule around for a bit. From now on, I will be publishing Demon Sword Maiden on Tuesday and Wednesday, Dragon Princess on Thursday and Friday, then finally, Female Knight & Dark Elf will take up the slot of Saturday and Sunday.

Just a little bit more and we will be able to fill up our schedules for the entire week~ 😋
While that’s some great news, just imagine the workload for a single person to manage… it’s… terrifying… maybe I should consider hiring someone to do the editing and publishing parts for me in the near future…

P.S. Oh and I received some advice from a Wikia pro and modified the Demon Sword Maiden Wiki homepage based on his advice, I am very proud of how it turned out, please visit the Wiki page and take a looksie 😉

Demon Sword Maiden Chapter 74

Female Knight & Dark Elf had been released last Sunday in a batch of 5, have you guys read it yet? What are your thoughts regarding our newest Gender Bender webnovel? It’s the first Japanese Gender Bender on Re:Library and I’m hopeful that we will be able to expand into more Japanese series eventually 🙂

Now we just need to find a Korean translator and look for some Korean Gender Bender webnovel 🤭
I don’t think I’ve seen much or any Gender Bender novel from the Korean side, have you?

[New Series] Female Knight & Dark Elf

Remember the talk last month about hiring a Japanese translator to pick up a Japanese Gender Bender series? No? Well, don’t worry about it if you are new to Re:Library. I will fill you in on the details.

At Re:Library, we have initiated “Project Gender Bender” around late July. Our ultimate goal is to gather supporters on Patreon and use that money to hire translators that will pick up the ongoing Gender Bender series and keep the project alive while the original translator, namely me, will go hunt for new Gender Bender webnovel to translate.

However, since I am a Chinese translator, I cannot do anything about Japanese Gender Bender series, so when I happened to see a Japanese translator for hire, I chatted him up and somehow or another, the talk progressed to the point where I have now hired him to translate this series for me. Of course, since this is an unforeseen circumstance, I haven’t had the chance to gather any patrons to back up this project yet. In other words, I am paying for this series out of my own allowance.

I do plan to slowly gather patrons to support this series and will make the Patreon account available in the coming week. With my current allowance, I can only commission up to 2 chapters per week. Mainly due to the short chapters, the commission fees are also lower (but in reality, the fees for two chapters added together are actually higher than a single chapter with three thousand source word). However, only for the first two weeks, I will be releasing them in a batch of 5. That is an entire month worth of batch! So enjoy the read, and if you have the ability to, please support us on Patreon!
