[Announcement] Unscheduled Maintenance

This news is brought to you by our web hosting provider, Fana. It has almost been two years since Fana had offered to host our website on her dedicated server for free. What an amazing two years it was! But of course, this isn’t bad news by any means, Fana will continue to host Re:Library for us, but since she has recently applied for a new job, that means the server has to go.

Fana plans to take some time tomorrow to migrate our site to a new server that she owns, we don’t yet have a fixed time on when this will be happening but please expect the site to be down for at least 30 minutes some time soon for maintenance.

Thank you all for your patience and understanding.

New Year Update & Future Plan

Re:Library wishes you all a Happy New Year. Another year has come and gone, we wanted to thank everyone who has been reading on this site and has been supporting us for all these years, especially the Patrons. Without their support, we will not be able to come this far and continue providing everyone with free webnovel translations to read.

To start off the New Year, we will look back on 2021 and reflect on what we could have done better. Beginning on March 2021, ever since Not Sure, Another World Reincarnation has finished publishing, we noticed a sharp decline of patrons, which is only natural seeing as that was our most popular series. We tried to fill in the gap with a new series, The Guild’s Cheat Receptionist, but that didn’t work out too well as the translator had to drop due to personal reasons after working with us for two months. As the consequence, we had to continue hunting for a new translator while our monthly revenue continue to fall, which ultimately led us to drop a few of our least performing novels such as Blue Sky and Loli Elf.

In the meantime, two of our Chinese translators have also gone missing in action since around mid-2021. One of whom has just recently reached out to me and informed me that he caught COVID and had been hospitalized for months. While the other one is still missing, he’s probably too busy with a new job and family obligations. As a temporary solution, I’ve enlisted the help of a friend to translate Reborn as a Transcendent while I work on Demon Sword Maiden along with a co-translator.

Year 2021 had been a pretty shaky year for Re:Library with the lack of translators and constantly decrementing revenue steam. We have finally managed to recruit two new Chinese translators and one new Japanese translator around late September/October, and things are finally starting to settle down. There is a bit of a catch, however, with our revenue continuing to drop from March 2021 until November 2021, our profit has dropped into the red for the past two months and I had to pay the translators from our past savings.

I have shared our earnings, expenditures, and profits earned in 2021 with the patrons, if you wish to learn how we’ve spent the money donated to us, you will unfortunately have to subscribe to one of our Patreon pages due to the confidentiality of this information.

Future Plan

I am hoping that this all will change in 2022. Now, moving on to our plans for the New Year, a few translators have expressed their interest to increase their workload, which means more chapters for a selected few novels. The only problem is that, right now, we do not have enough resources to pay the translator, which is why I will soon be setting new goals in our Patreon pages.

As of now, Reborn as a Transcendent only releases 2 chapters per week, I will increase that to 3 chapters per week should we meet our goal in Silva’s Patreon.

The next novel in line is Hero’s Redo, currently at 2 chapters per week. Similarly, I will increase this to 3 chapters per week upon reaching the goal in Nomad’s Patreon.

Lastly, our new translator for the new series Strongest Swordsman’s Re:START has expressed strong interest in the novel and wishes to translate more, please help us pay the eager translator by subscribing to Musubii’s Patreon. We have two goals for this one, by reaching the first goal, we can increase weekly release from 2 to 3 chapters, and if we reach the second goal, we can make that into 4 chapters per week!

Of course, the aforementioned only outline our immediate plans. As for our long-term plan, we naturally wanted to pick up more Gender Bender novels to publish, but I will put that on the back burner for now until we accomplish our immediate goals.

[New Series] Strongest Swordman’s Re:START

It’s been a while since we’ve had any good news but today we’re happy to announce that we’ve finally found some new translators to join the Re:Library family and proudly present to you one of the newest projects which we’ll be publishing in the near future. Please give our new Japanese translator, Jiro, a warm welcome. He has done a superb job on this novel and I look forward to more of his translation!

As of yet, we haven’t decided on the schedule for this project, but once we do, you’ll be the first one to know it! Without further ado, please enjoy the first chapter for now!

[Closed] Re:Library is Recruiting

As I have outlined in the previous update, Re:Library will be dropping a few series due to various reasons, such as poor performances of the novel or the translators not being able to keep up with his work. As such, we will have a few vacancies open for Chinese/Japanese translators.

We are looking into the possibility of hiring a Japanese translator to pick up The Guild’s Cheat Receptionist or some other Gender Bender web novel, and Chinese translators for the Loli Elf and quite possibly even the Transcendent in the near future.

If you have the necessary skills and is interested to earn some side income, please sign up using the form in this LINK.

Blue Sky Survey Form

As per the previous announcement, we will be dropping Blue Sky in favor of a new series due to the poor performance of the novel. Please understand that we don’t make this decision lightly, but since we are urged to make a poll by our loyal supporters, I’ll take this chance to reaccess why Blue Sky is underperforming and try to get some public opinion.

[Breaking News] Status Update

Hi all, it’s been a while since I made any status update, but today I have a few very important news to share.

Firstly, regarding Demon Sword Maiden, our current translator had a lot of issues to deal with, and he still does, therefore, we’ve hired a new translator to take over the work from him. The latest chapter was from the new translator. What do you think? The quality is not bad right? I actually plan to have the new and old translator work in pairs so each translator will have a lower quota to submit each month and effectively lessen the stress for them, but I still have no idea how this will work out since the old is still dealing with a bazillion of real-life issues.

Next, about Transcendent and Loli Elf, the translator for both of these series has been kind of pushing his limits these days, quoting that “keeping a schedule with a family like mine has been very difficult”. He has been late on submission for the past few months already and as of the moment of this writing, I still haven’t received the full July batch of Loli Elf from the translator. The deadline for August is also fast approaching so I am not hopeful to receive the August batch of Transcendent and Loli Elf any time soon. I had been in talks with the translator and we agreed that if he’s late again this month, he will drop Loli Elf, but if he still keeps being late despite that, I might have to reconsider my future plans.

Lastly, Blue Sky doesn’t seem to be performing as well as we hoped, the views on the site are low (by 50% compared to our next least popular series and a staggering 80% compared to our most popular series) and the number of patrons also didn’t exceed 20. We have been making quite a huge loss every month to keep this project ongoing for as long as it has, not to mention the additional fee to hire an editor for this project. It is not an easy decision to make, but we will have to drop Blue Sky in favor of a new novel.

Bearing in mind all of the above, we will need be recruiting new Chinese/Japanese translators to take over existing (or new) projects. If you are confident in your language and writing skills, or if you know anyone interested to earn some side income, please join our Discord server and DM Silva#3719.

[New Series] The Villainess becomes a Commoner

Hello all, it’s been a while since we’ve had a new series on Re:Library. The Guild’s Cheat Receptionist didn’t work out last time due to some complication and now that Succubus’ Life in Another World is coming to an end, we finally have an open slot to add a new novel to our shelf. The Villainess becomes a Commoner is a Japanese Gender Bender web novel based on a man who is reincarnated as a rich family’s daughter who’s hated by the public and how he(?) managed to cope with his new life. It even has a manga too! Do enjoy the read.

P.S. Oh yes, I forgot to mention a few things since my mind was too occupied with setting this up but we will begin publishing the second chapter onward starting on Aug 29, a day after the last chapter of @Succubus’ Life is published. Additionally, each chapter will be split into two parts since they are all longer than 4k Japanese characters each.

[New Teaser] The Guild’s Cheat Receptionist

It has been a while indeed since we added a new novel to our library. There are many reasons, such as monetary issues, lack of manpower, communication trouble, and some such. We were supposed to have the translator of Another World Reincarnation pick up this project after she was done with the last batch of Another World Reincarnation, but due to life issues and many other obstacles, the last batch was delayed until this day. With that said, however, we finally received words from the translator and Another World Reincarnation should be resuming publishing next week. This will be the last work of Mii for Re:Library.

On another note, we have also found a new translator who will be working on our new project, The Guild’s Cheat Receptionist. As for why I labeled it “New Teaser” instead of “New Series”, the reason is very simple. As I’ve heard from others that this series has a lot of formal language, which makes it hard to translate, I dare not hope the translator will be able to keep this up for long, so for now, I will have Shurim translate the first batch and see how it goes. If the translator says he’ll be fine, then we will officially push The Guild’s Cheat Receptionist to full project.

Oh and might I remind you that we are doing the webnovel version, so please do not confuse this for the light novel version that Ziru’s Musings is (or was) translating.

Strongest Player Cultivation Chapter 11

This chapter should’ve been published two weeks earlier, why the delay you ask? Well, life’s been busy. The first week was due to Chinese New Year, since I had to visit my relatives and such. The second week, well, I actually finished translating on Sunday but only published this chapter like 5 days later today. Why? Because I was too addicted to Final Fantasy 14, the game is stealing my soul… Oh and I probably won’t be able to translate this next week too since it’s my friend’s wedding.

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.
