Demon Sword Maiden Chapter 67

I have weak tear glands, I always found myself tearing up whenever I watch Fairy Tail, even in scenes that not actually remotely tear-jerking. My eyes will get wet just from the sight of a character crying on the other side of the screen.

Although I do have to admit that Fairy Tail, despite being shunned by some fans for whatever reason, has great characters development. Because otherwise, there’s just no way you’d be able to invoke tears in the audience if the characters have a shallow background. I once wished I could reach that level of writing one day, where my fiction could move the readers with an emotional roller coaster.

Dragon Princess Chapter 5

There’s a lot more of you reading both of the series I am currently publishing than I thought. As the translator, I am very honored that you guys are sticking with me 🙂

Currently, the chapters of Dragon Princess seems to be averaging at 1.5k source words per chapter, which is pretty short in its own right. I’m not sure how long this will keep up and if the chapter length will increase in the future, but hey, as a translator, I actually like short chapters as they are less stressful to translate.

Demon Sword Maiden Chapter 66

I think I might need another editor for Demon Sword Maiden soon. I mean, I don’t have a problem with the current editor, he does great and high-quality work, but he also has other commitments so he works on the slow side. I’m thinking that maybe I should hire another editor to help ease up his work and also for preparation when we reached the next Patreon goal.

Okay, the next goal hasn’t actually been determined yet but obviously, I’d be increasing the amount of commissioned chapters per week when we do reach that goal. So I will need more than 1 editor to help keep up with the increasing workload. If you are interested to apply, please fill in the form in this post and submit your application.

Demon Sword Maiden Chapter 65

Well, damn… me and my big mouth… I saw a Japanese translator looking for a paid job, so I approached him with only the intention to ask around, but now it looks like the talk is proceeding towards actually hiring him for the job. What do you guys think I should do? Think of this as an investment and hire him to translate a Japanese Gender Bender series at the rate of 1 chapter per week?

I’m poor so I can only afford 4-5 chapters per month at the rate he’s asking (which is a very reasonable rate, mind you). And this investment comes directly from my own pocket with no support from Patreons (yet). I plan to slowly gather support from the Patreon so I can pay off the translations and turn this investment into a profit. But of course, just like with all my other novels, the more patrons I can gather, the more chapters I can commission from the translator.

To anyone that supports this plan, feel free to suggest a Japanese Gender Bender novel you’d like to be picked up, but of course, if you can support this project on Patreon (not available yet), it would be all the better.

P.S. To Kreyton, if I decide to go ahead with this plan, I can add Yotogi no Kuni no Gekkouhime to the lists of possible translations along with a few others. What I’m planning for now is to have the translator translates the synopsis of a few Gender Bender series and have the Patrons vote for which one to pick up.

Dragon Princess Chapter 2

There’s nothing much for me to say here. Most of everything I wanted to say has already been said yesterday. There is one thing though, all the chapters I’ve translated so far aside from Chapter 1 all have a length of 1,500 characters on average. Meaning, all of them are short chapters. I don’t know how long this status quo will last and if the chapter length will increase in the future, but short chapter works for me! 🙂

Demon Sword Maiden Fanart Commission

I’ve been thinking of commissioning a fanart for Demon Sword Maiden for some time now and here’s a few scenes I’ve been thinking of:

Option A: A half-naked Lily pressing the katana (with red runes) against her breasts with flirtatious expression. (The scene in the middle of the Mountain Imps raid)

Option B: Uesugi forced a kiss on a struggling Lily on horseback (The scenes on the rainy street of Takeshita)

Option C: ………

The Future of Re:Library

First of all, allow me to thank all the Patrons for your continuous support. Because of your support, a new dream has opened up for us and the future of Re:Library looked brighter than ever. It was because of your support that I was able to hire a translator to take over my project and focuses on my next project. So allow me to express my sincerest gratitude to all my current patrons, to-be patrons, and past patrons. Honestly, thank you all so much for your warm support!

With that in mind, my next plan in line is to execute the same strategy for all my following projects! I will start by gathering support on Patreon, and once there are enough subscribers for my next project (Dragon Princess), I will begin the hiring process and pass Dragon Princess to the hired translator, then I will look for another Gender Bender project to publish on Re:Library.

Patreon Goal Surprise!

I planned to announce this after we reach the 3rd patreon goal, but I managed to hire a translator much earlier than scheduled so I have no choice but to push forward my schedule.

First of all, give the patrons a hand of applause, this option has only become possible thanks to all the awesome patrons who have supported me thus far. When I first opened my Patreon account, I was honestly not expecting much, maybe 1 to 3 Patrons at most. However, over the past few months, the number of patrons continued to grow until we reached this turning point today.

I’m sure all of you have been wondering what I’ve been going on about for a while now so without further ado, let’s move on to the main topic! Continue reading Patreon Goal Surprise!

Demon Sword Maiden Chapter 64

Lots of great news will be revealed this week, please keep an eye out on the featured posts on homepage or check out the news section.

The first news is that from today onward, Demon Sword Maiden will return to the schedule of two chapters per week for the foreseeable future. Next, we will have a voting session for a Demon Sword Maiden fanart commission. Then Dragon Princess will finally get a weekly release schedule. And lastly, whether Re:Library becomes a Gender Bender haven in the future falls solely on the hands of the readers.

[New Series] Dragon Princess

After so many months since I last translated the teaser for Dragon Princess, chapter 1 of the series has finally been completely translated and from now on, we will be getting a steady supply of Dragon Princess at the rate of 1 to 2 chapters per week.

When I first picked this up, there was still no VIP chapters and the chapters are not sorted by volume, but now there are 263 VIP chapters and 5 volumes? Even the cover art has been updated! So many things about this novel have changed.

Just a fair warning, this novel has a lot of Chinese slangs, informal tones, archaic dialect, and first-person context. It’s my first time translating a novel like this so I’m not sure how well I do. There might be inconsistencies with the tenses due to my lack of experience, so if anyone wishes to apply for editorship for Dragon Princess, I’m more than happy to welcome you with open arms.

Oh yes, and give thanks to TribeOfOne for editing the first part of this novel, I really had a hard time with those archaic accent, it was thanks to him that the first part of the novel reads that much more smoothly.

Demon Sword Maiden Chapter 63

I’m not sure how many can relate to this but I believe most readers can relate since it is a stereotype that those who like reading and gaming is what the society would call a NEET or an OTAKU, even if we don’t think so ourselves.

As a so-called NEET, we are mostly an anti-social creature (or at least I am) so it is near impossible for us to build a long-lasting relationship. Now you might be wondering, why am I saying all this. Well, there is only one reason, remember the “girl” I told you the last two weeks ago? Yeah, that didn’t quite work out.

Anyway enough about that, I just got word from my collaborator, I think we can expect good news next week. Let’s hope so…

Demon Sword Maiden Chapter 62

With all due respect, since this week’s chapter has been pushed ahead of schedule, there will only be one chapter for this week and the next week. Believe me, I’d love to provide you guys with two chapters (or more) per week if I can help it, but due to some circumstances which I cannot reveal just yet, I currently do not have enough chapters in stock to do just that.

However, if my plan shifts toward a favorable outcome, then we will be hearing some good news in a week or two. If the plan falls apart, there will be no good news, but no bad news either. We will just keep up the chapter release at the same pace as always.

Demon Sword Maiden Chapter 61

Well, due to my guilty conscience, I pushed this chapter 1 week ahead of schedule so the editor hadn’t had the chance to edit it yet. Sorry, Max!

Please enjoy this chapter, unedited it may be, the quality’s still not too shabby. Oh yes and Arifureta anime adaptation is finally out last night! What’d everyone think about it? This is just my personal opinion but I believe they totally ruined it, they try to stack too much into one episode and everything feels so rushed. It was a total letdown.
