Re:Library’s Financial Update and Strategic Plans


We’re reaching out to provide an important update on Re:Library’s current situation and our proactive strategies moving forward. We’re facing some financial challenges, and we believe it’s important to be open with our dedicated readers like you.

Let’s talk numbers for a moment. Our average annual views have been on a downward slide since 2021. Back then, we were proudly hitting around 1.2 million monthly views. Fast forward to 2022, and that number dropped to 850,000. Now, in 2023, we’re looking at an even lower average of 700,000.

If this trend keeps up, we’re looking at potentially hitting just 500,000 monthly views by 2024. And the grim reality is that if things don’t turn around, Re:Library might have to close its doors by 2026.

So, what’s causing this dip? Here are some possible reasons for this decline:

Rise of Machine Translations: The allure of machine-translated content is growing as the tech gets better. Some of our readers who are hungry for new chapters are turning to these translations while waiting for our releases, which is impacting our readership.

Aggregators in the Mix: Aggregator sites are a double-edged sword. Some readers, unknowingly, are sharing links to these sites. These sites copy content from original sources without permission, and readers are drawn to them for their convenience. Unfortunately, this is hurting our earnings, and it’s a battle we can’t easily win.

Niche Genre Constraints: Our specialty in Gender Bender is both our strength and our limitation. We’ve been focusing on what our current readers love, like male-to-female transformations and girl’s love stories. But we’re hitting a ceiling; there’s only so much interest in this specific genre.

So, what’s our game plan to fight back against these falling numbers? Here’s the scoop:

Exploring Machine Translated Teasers: In response to the growing interest in machine translations, Re:Library is taking a nuanced approach. We’re introducing machine translated teasers, carefully curated to acquaint readers with unexplored novels. These teasers have a dedicated section on our site, ensuring they won’t clutter the front page. While not immediately visible, we hope they’ll contribute to increased views. Furthermore, these teasers might even become candidates for human translation through a future popularity vote.

Opening Up to New Publishers: We’re toying with the idea of letting other writers and translators host their novels on Re:Library. We know our posting process isn’t the friendliest, and we’re aiming to fix that to make it easier for newcomers.

Merchandise: You might have noticed the “Merchandise” menu hanging around on our site. We’re planning to open up a shop with cool stuff like t-shirts, mousepads, and pillows featuring the original characters we’ve designed over the past few months. We’re just running one final shipping test before the grand opening. The idea behind this merchandise venture is to not only offer awesome goodies but also to spread the word about our platform.

Genre Expansion: To draw in new audiences, we need to broaden our horizons. That entails moving beyond our current repertoire. While we’ve catered to male-to-female transformation and girl’s love, it’s time to venture into traps, female-to-male transformation, and boy’s love. Our aim is to diversify our offerings and capture a wider audience. We value your feedback, especially since our main focus has been male-to-female Genderswap. If there’s strong interest, we might even form a new team for these genres.

Thank you for being part of our community and your continued support. We’re dedicated to overcoming these challenges and ensuring a vibrant future for Re:Library. If you have any suggestions or feedback on how to improve our views/readership, feel free to leave your comments below.

Introducing Machine Translated Teasers

Recently, an intriguing idea was brought to our attention, and we can’t help but consider it as an exciting experiment. What if Re:Library started hosting 100% machine-translated novels on our site as teasers and later allowed human translators to pick up the most popular choices through Patreon polls?

We’ve been inspired by the potential benefits of such an endeavor, aiming to introduce you all to a broader range of Gender Bender novels and potentially uncover hidden gems along the way. These MTL teasers will be housed in a brand-new section on the site, ensuring clear labeling to distinguish them from human-translated works.

The MTL teasers will be further divided into their own language group:
Chinese Novels:
Japanese Novels:

Now, for a quick FAQ to address your concerns:

Q: Will Machine Translations replace human translators?
A: No, machine translations won’t replace human translators. While tools like ChatGPT can help with quick and basic translations, they lack the nuanced understanding, cultural insight, and linguistic finesse of human translators.

Q: What is the purpose of these MTL Teasers?
A: These machine-translated teasers introduce readers to undiscovered novels, acting like extended synopses. They help patrons decide which novel to vote for human translation.

Q: Will these 100% MTLs be edited or proofread?
A: While we understand the importance of quality, these teasers won’t undergo extensive editing or proofreading. Our intention is to use AI assistance to generate the text, serving as a glimpse into the fascinating stories waiting to be discovered.

New Poster Now Live! and Upcoming Plans!

We are thrilled to announce that after an incredible journey of $500 USD, three and a half months, and seven updates, our banner is finally complete!

We owe this achievement to the unwavering support of wonderful people like you! Your contributions have been invaluable, and we extend our deepest gratitude to all our patrons who have been with us every step of the way and continue to support us for the future.

While our banner is almost ready, there are still a few considerations from our team regarding the character sizes. Additionally, the artist is eager to refine the drawing further, so we can expect a revised version in just a few days.

As our banner is completed, we’re excited to have more flexibility in our budget for future endeavors. Our current focus is commissioning character arts for merchandise.

Here’s a summary of the artists we are considering for this exciting project:

  1. Himitsu: Full body – $75, Commercial use – 2x, Background pricing TBD. They have shown interest in a long-term collaboration and might offer a discount for commercial use. We eagerly await their final quote as they handle their current workload.
  2. Shiro: Full body with background and commercial use – $70. We’ve already placed an order with them for one illustration to assess their work.
  3. Risovaka: Full body – $75, Background – $15, Commercial use – $20 (Total: $110). They may provide a returning customer discount, which we will confirm soon.
  4. Narululu: Full body – $55, Background – $20, Commercial use – $50 (Total: $125). They offer a $15 discount after 3-4 orders, adding to the appeal of this option.
  5. Yuukun: Full body – $35 (inclusive of commercial use), Detailed background – additional $5. While their reviews and pricing are excellent, communication has been challenging, and we are taking this into consideration.

Once again, we thank you for your tremendous support and for being a part of this incredible journey. Your contributions have been instrumental in making this dream come true. We will keep you updated on the progress and eagerly look forward to the exciting artwork that lies ahead!

New Affiliate Program

We are thrilled to announce some exciting developments as we work towards our vision of creating the ultimate hub for Gender Bender novels. To further expand our offerings, we have launched an affiliate program that aims to bring talented translators on board. We will be reaching out to translators, offering them the opportunity to host their translations on Re:Library as freelancers while sharing in the ad revenue generated.

We understand that some translators may prefer to maintain their independence, which is why we are also offering an alternative option. Under this arrangement, a dedicated publisher will be assigned to post chapters on our site, ensuring a one-week delay to support the exclusivity of the translator’s own website.

We are pleased to announce that three translators have already joined us on this exciting journey. Saloi Translations will be hosting “I Decided to Become a Perfect Girl” as a freelance translator, while V-rus Translations and Bell Rock Translations have chosen to join our affiliate program. They have granted us permission to host “I Was Heartbroken, So I Became A VTuber” and “North x Northwest” on Re:Library, respectively. While we are in the process of transferring the chapters, you can still visit the translators’ sites to enjoy their existing translations!

Additionally, we are delighted to introduce Ryukas as our dedicated publisher for the affiliates. Let’s extend a warm welcome to Ryukas for their valuable contribution to our growing community.

We believe that these new collaborations will enrich our platform and provide you with a wider selection of captivating Gender Bender novels. Stay tuned for more updates as we continue to expand and enhance your Re:Library experience.

Thank you for your ongoing support and enthusiasm.

New Poster (Coming Soon)!

Today, we come to you with an exciting project that will add a touch of artistic flair to our website.

We are thrilled to announce our plan to commission a captivating header image for our website, and we need your support to make it a reality. The banner will not only beautify our platform but also showcase all of our newly created mascots. It will feature stunning artwork, six captivating characters, an adorable pet, and a mesmerizing background, all crafted by a talented artist.

To achieve this, we are seeking your help to raise a total of $495.85. In the first month, we aim to allocate $179.35 to bring two characters, a pet, and a captivating background to life. The subsequent two months will see the addition of two more characters, with each month requiring $158.25.

Here is an insight into the revenue and expenditure of Re:Library over the specified months:

September 2022 had revenue of $146.78, with significant spending on Bookwalker and a logo concept.

New Logo, New Emotes & More

It has been a while since we last introduced Re:Library’s Mascot. At the time of introduction, some of the reference sheets were still in production, but today we are happy to announce the reference sheets of all 7 mascot characters and 1 pet are now done! We’ve put them together on a size chart for a side-by-side comparison of the character’s proportions, you can preview them below:

With the completion of the reference sheets, we can now proceed to the next phase. However, before doing so, I would like to address the matter of the logos and emoticons. Although I have not made any official statement in recent months, it is likely that regular visitors to Re:Library may have observed several modifications made to the site logo. Below are a few examples of the logos we have utilized over the past few months, with one of them receiving criticism for resembling a cryptocurrency logo.

Depreciated Logos

In the end, we’ve decided to stick with these two logos for the website and discord respectively:

Moving on, we have already commissioned 2 sets of emoticons featuring our mascots, and we intend to ultimately replace all the emoticons on our Discord server with these personalized ones. Additionally, I have made these emoticons available as stickers on the website, allowing visitors to utilize them when posting comments on the site.

It may have come to the attention of some individuals that the emoticon functionality on our website was non-operational for a period of time. This was due to the expiration of our license, which caused the plugin to deactivate itself. Although we were previously informed that we could still utilize the latest version of the plugin at the time our license expired, it turned out to be untrue, necessitating us to renew our license. However, we are pleased to announce that the emoticon feature is now completely restored and available for use.

Our next development involves a collaboration with RedBubble to launch an online merchandise store. The way RedBubble operates is that they handle the printing and shipping of the products on our behalf, and we receive a royalty of approximately 20% of the purchase price. While we are not yet prepared to launch, as we are still assessing the quality of the merchandise, I have personally placed an order and am currently waiting for it to arrive before we can make an official announcement. Nevertheless, we have already uploaded some designs on RedBubble, and the store is already accessible online. If you are interested, you can preview our store by clicking on the following link:


And finally, regarding the banner, our plan is to commission a design that will replace the current header image of our website and also be utilized as the background for invites on our Discord server. Since including all 7 characters and 1 pet in the banner will no doubt cost us a hefty sum, I’m thinking to start with a more modest approach. Initially, we will feature only 2 characters and gradually add the remaining characters later on. I have already contacted an artist who expressed interest, but since they rarely create backgrounds, they are uncertain if they can fulfill our request and have agreed to attempt it before providing a quote. We are hoping to receive a response from them soon.

Rich Richie joins Re:Library

Today, a new freelance translator has joined the Re:Library family and decided to translate I became a Beautiful Girl, but I’m still an MMO Junkie from the ground up. The previous version translated by Secret Imouto is completely butchered up and I totally agree with Richie’s decision to re-translate the whole thing. I wouldn’t want to read a single chapter translated by Secret Imouto anyway, they are very infamous for ruining any good novels they picked up due to their horrendous translation.

Now we are aware that another group has picked up where the Secret Imouto left off, but that doesn’t change our course of action, our goal here is to fix all the mistakes made by the previous translator and we will continue to do so. If at some point we reached the chapters translated by the Galaxy translation team, then that is something Richie will have to sort out with the other team, hopefully we will be able to come to a proper resolution.

Without further ado, give Richie your best regards and enjoy the read:

Introducing Re:Library Mascots

We have been meaning to introduce these mascot characters to you much earlier but the artist we commissioned to do the reference sheets for these characters has gone missing in action. In fact, only 4 out of 7 were done by the time this post was live. I did get a bit impatient and went ahead to commission another artist to finish mine so that we can proceed to the next stage sooner.

There were still no news from the original artist so we went ahead and commissioned 2 other artists to finish the remaining character sheets for us and they were finally all completed at early May 2023.

For now, I’ll go ahead and introduce you all to the mascot characters we have created, each character here is based on the publishers and editors of Re:Library.

1. Sylphie d’Elysium

Sylphie was a new god born from the faith she received from her followers as an influencer in her past life. Since she had hundreds of thousands of followers, she could be considered a god with considerable power. However, as a new god, and an individual with zero contact with magic before, Sylphie did not know how to utilize her power. Therefore, the senior gods decided to seal Sylphie’s divine powers and sent her to a fantasy world with myriads of magical beings and had her study magic under the fairy queen. It was only after studying under the queen of fairies for a 100 years was Sylphie finally allowed to leave the sanctuary, Elysium, to explore the world and learn about their cultures. Everything in this world was new to Sylphie so she was always filled with curiosity and often got herself into minor troubles.
Shy and reserved around strangers, but has a carefree and loving personality around her friends. She’s a bit clumsy and gullible, so she always gets pulled into other people’s pace and gets teased easily. She is curious by nature so she tries to learn new things everyday. The way she keeps practicing the same skills and learning new ones day after day may seem like a crazy endeavor from an outsider’s perspective but she only does it because she thinks it’s fun.
Whilst Sylphie was still unable to properly utilize her divine power, she can change her genders and those around her with ease since she fully understood the biology of both sexes. The bracelet she’s always wearing is based on the infinity gauntlet and serves as a vessel to contain the divine powers that she wasn’t able to fully control. The six stones on the bracelet contain the ability of space, time, reality, power, mind, and soul respectively. She doesn’t necessarily need the bracelet to use her divine power but it helps her control it.

The power to change gender comes from the reality stone. In order to use her divine power, she has to utilize faith energy, so it’s not as if she can use them without limits. In other words, she can’t snap half the existence in the universe to dust like Thanos did, at most she can only snap like 1,000 at most at the cost of her own existence. If she used all her faith energy at once, she’ll cease to exist.

Even if she can’t make full use of her divine power, she is still a god and thus is one of the most powerful beings in the mortal world. However, as a matter of fact, most of her powers actually have minimal effects on powerful beings with divine power, much less other gods.

In order to become a proper god, she has to gain more believers outside of her past life’s followers. Once her past life’s influence starts to dwindle, she’ll lose her only source of Faith Energy and thus slowly fade out of existence. Her believers will gain an infinitesimal amount of her divine power every time they pray to her.

(That is why it is impossible to kill a god, even if you kill them, they’ll eventually resurrect if they still have lots of believers. The only way to kill a god is to slay them so they cannot interfere in the mortal world and take this chance to wipe out all their believers so they lose their source of Faith Energy and cannot recover.)

Name: Sylphie d’Elysium
Race: Fairy (God)
Height: 12.5 cm (Human size – 146 cm)
Sex: Female
Hair: Pink
Eyes: Deep Blue

2. Robin Al-Logia

A noble scion from upper aristocracy that specialises in alchemy research and astronomy.

Sometimes he dreams of other worlds with advanced technology, and makes several efforts to replicate them using magic.

Uses an Astrolabe equipped staff for spatial magic, derived from the same concept as the antikythera mechanism.

Is able to cast magic remotely via the pair of catalyst orbs he keeps with him at all time, they are able to freely fly around and appear to have personalities of their own, though that is just conjecture.

Fond of all those cute, he has a reputation for sending elaborate gifts to noble daughters.

He is extremely fond of reading, and takes efforts to learn about all sorts of nonsensical trivia others consider irrelevant, often using them at boring social conventions he’d rather not attend.

His eccentricities extend to his other hobbies, as he spends most of his free time researching, designing and building all sorts of magical contraptions without regard for practicality.

His most distinct characteristic is probably just how much he places emphasis on treating Fana like his own younger sister, with almost religious fervour.

Name – Robin Al-Logia
Sex – Male
Height – 6’ / 182cm
Hair – Black
Eyes – Blue
Accessory Notes – Wears a monocle of some type
Catalyst – A pair of floating alchemical spheres that orbit his shoulders

3. Fana Al-Welsh

Royal Queen of the Welsh Kingdom, she has heard stories of her ancestor’s great exploit and how the kingdom came to be, she wishes to be like them one day so she abused her authority to train with the knights to polish her skills.

One day, Fana gets bored and decides to escape the castle and see the sights of her kingdom, which she could only imagine, stuck on her throne. After working out some details with Robin, she escapes with Sylphie in tow. To not be recognized by her citizens, she disguised herself as a man and went to register as an adventurer, as that seemed to be fun. Liomad, after noticing Fana’s disappearance, quickly catches up to her after receiving a few vague hints from Robin, only to find her in the adventurer’s guild. Liomad swiftly saw through her disguise and dragged her into a private room of the guild. After a brief discussion, Liomad gets roped into joining her since she gave up on convincing Fana to return.

Through their travels, they get to meet people from all walks of life, Serolithia the arachne, Fira the fire spirit, Ceres the fallen angel, and many others.

Fana acts prim and proper in front of her retainers and citizens but she actually idolised the lives of adventurers. She only reveals her true personality to those closest to her, and feels quite constricted in the stuffy royal castle. Her favorite pastime is spending a quiet afternoon in the library while listening to Robin talk about his latest inventions.
Name – Fana Al-Welsh
Sex – Female
Height – 5’5” / 165cm
Hair – Blonde
Eyes – Amber

4. Dex

Dex the chihuahua had been abandoned by their owner when he was still a young puppy. Now alone and homeless, the young puppy didn’t know where to go and tried to scrape up food any which way he could, begging by acting cute, scavenging the local dumpster, hunting small animals in back alleys, and sometimes even stealing from food stalls.

One day, Dex somehow wandered into the barracks and encountered the young Liomad training with her spear. Dex noticed the lunchbox Liomad left on the bench and tried to snatch it, but Liomad soon noticed him and stopped his attempt with ease.

Being the stubborn type that he was, Dex wasn’t going to back down like this, he kept going back to the barrack everyday to steal Liomad’s lunchbox. Sometimes he succeeded, sometimes he failed, and somehow they developed a weird relationship of being the chaser or the chased. Dex could instinctively tell Fana was Liomad’s boss, so he usually acted coy and harmless in front of Fana.

Has the mentality to never give up no matter how hopeless the situation, is very loyal and protective to those he opens his heart to. Dex has a very shrewd mind and always comes up with new tricks to one up Liomad.
Because of the constant back and forth with Liomad, Dex has somehow learned how to utilize aura for body strengthening unconsciously.
Name: Dex
Sex: Male
Race: Dog (Chihuahua breed)
Hair: Beige furred with white underbelly and sunbeam

5. Liomad Redscale

Liomad is a knight serving under Fana as her bodyguard. At first, she approached her duty with a professional attitude, and treated Fana with the respect she was due, but as the years went by, she eventually warmed up to her. She was a war orphan, abandoned in the barracks as her father died in battle and her mother was always absent, leading her to be raised by the collective that is the soldiers of the kingdom, who chose to adopt her. In this environment filled with men(and the occasional women), Liomad lacked what others would consider a feminine attitude. The small number of female soldiers tried their best, but they were battle-hardened veterans, which didn’t help in Liomad’s upbringing. As a result, she has no interest in embroidery and the like, but in weapons and combat. Growing older, Liomad has shown a remarkable aptitude for handling weapons in combat. At the age of 14, she managed to beat the veteran soldiers in a duel without any magic, and at 19, defeated the guard captain. At 20, she received the honor to become the royal guard of Fana, which she accepted.
Liomad acts seriously, but is kind to others. Despite the presence of multiple men in the barracks where she was raised, she is extremely prude, as the female soldiers went to great lengths to avoid ‘tainting’ her. Her prudeness has become a teasing point for many people close to her. During her free time, she can be seen practicing with her spear or patrolling around the streets of the city.
Liomad’s abilities revolve mainly around using her aura in combat. Her aura is light pink in color but has been seen to occasionally become red. She is capable of using her spear in many different stances, which allows her to deliver a flurry of attacks that is variable and interchangeable.
Name: Liomad Redscale
Height: 178 cm
Age: 26
Sex: Female
Hair: Pink
Eyes: Emerald Green

6. Lithianne Sero

Lithianne Sero, better known as Serolithia in human society, is one of the rare arachne race born between the fusion of man and spider. She was the only arachne in the group after the previous generation queen had died shortly after giving birth to her, so she was treated as the next queen of spiders.

The spiders would bring all kinds of food and loot to Serolithia but she couldn’t quite savor the taste of raw meat, so she ended up eating fruits most of the time. One day, the spiders brought back a picture book, Serolithia couldn’t understand the human language, but she was enamored by the colorful illustrations. She was also quite interested in the figures drawn in the picture book, humans, who share the same upper half as her’s.

Thus, she set out of the dwelling in hope of meeting some, but she was treated as a monster and got subjugated instead. But since Sero was a rare arachne race and had a beautiful appearance (at least her upper half is according to the human’s aesthetic), they didn’t kill her but captured her to be sold as slave instead.

Ever since then, Serolithia has become distrustful of people. While they were enroute to the capital, fireballs start firing out of nowhere and forced the adventurers to leave Serolithia behind. Soon after, a beautiful girl with red hair and a little fairy fluttering beside her appeared as if from thin air.

Very quiet and generally indifferent or distrustful of people, doesn’t like to talk too much and is often nearly expressionless. Loves to read stories and especially romance and even more specially yuri.

Around people that she finds comfortable to be with, she’s much more expressive and affectionate although still maintaining her tendency to talk as little as possible. Kuudere type.

Various forms of magic, specialised in illusions and dark magic. Trained in hidden weapons with her spider threads and poison, hand-to-hand combat, high physical strength and self-regeneration, stronger and faster if she molts.
Name: Serolithia / Lithianne Sero
Height: 160 cm (Arachne form: 220 cm)
Sex: Female
Hair: Predominantly black but can appear very dark purple under some lighting
Eyes: Dark red eyes with slightly slit pupils

7. Fira von Ifrit

Fira is a high-ranking fire spirit and is the daughter of Ifrit, one of the four Spirit Kings in the world. She was born and raised in the sanctuary of spirits, and had never set foot to the outside world even once. She was disinterested in everything around her and would prefer to immerse herself in reading, until one day she was introduced to a “newborn” fairy who was said to be the next Fairy Queen. That queer fairy named Sylphie would approach her with no qualms of status when others are usually wary around her due to her being the daughter of the Spirit King. She would often tell stories of her adventures, how oh-so-fun it is in the outside world, and constantly nagged Fira to go with her.
Taciturn and uncaring. Since Fira doesn’t receive much parental affection from her parents due to how busy they are, she grew up without much attachment to anything other than the books she often reads to kill time. Due to her status, she doesn’t have many people who she can call friends either so she turned out to be very uncommunicative. But deep down inside, she yearns for familial love and everlasting friendship.
As a fire spirit and the daughter of Ifrit, Fira naturally has very high proficiency for fire elements. She could easily burn down an entire city if she fights at full power.
Name: Fira von Ifrit
Height: 163 cm
Race: Fire Spirit
Sex: Female
Hair: Red with black highlight
Eyes: Ruby Red

Phew, now that the introductions are over. What do you think of the character backgrounds? Interesting right? There was a time I was so hyped when we wrote this that I even considered hiring a ghostwriter to turn this into a full blown story. But the hype has kind of died down now several months after waiting for the artist to finish up. Maybe one day in the future we’ll host a writing competition and have participants write up a prologue with up to 10k words. Who knows?

[New Series] Sword, Tiara and High Heels

Another new series, Sword, Tiara and High Heels, will be gracing Re:Library soon. As of 1st September 2022, we have finished translating all 126 available chapters of Strongest Swordsman’s Re:START and will be publishing that well until 19th December 2022. Sword, Tiara and High Heels is the series that will be replacing Swordsman’s Re:START at the time.

For the time being, we plan to publish 1 chapter of Sword, Tiara and High Heels per month until we run out of Swordsman’s Re:START to publish. Patrons who are currently subscribed to Swordsman’s Re:START will also get early access to Sword, Tiara and High Heels.

[New Series] Vampire Princess’ Rose-colored Dream

Re:Library has decided to pick up Vampire Princess’ Rose-colored Dream. Big thanks to our new investor, Amaryllis, for sponsoring this project. And also to our new translator, Tanaka, who will be translating this series. We also want to thank all the editors who worked tirelessly to fix some of the old chapters and build up the terms sheet for our translator to work with.

After taking a look at all the currently available chapters online, we have decided to pick this up starting from Volume 3 Chapter 14 due to readability reason. At Re:Library, we care about quality, we don’t just randomly pick up any abandoned project and dump it on a translator and have them work on it without any sort of quality check. Which is why we normally don’t pick up abandoned projects, because it will take a long time to go through all the previous chapters to make sure all the terms are matching and edit the parts that seem out of place.

As for why we decided to pick up Vampire Princess’ Rose-colored Dream, it is because this series is connected to Ragweed Princess of Livithium Kingdom that we picked up recently. This story takes place approximately 100 years after Vampire Princess and they are some deep connections between the two, so it would be a sin not to finish this series.

Fan Arts, Emotes… and Mascots?

After receiving our first payment from the Re:Library’s General Purpose Patreon, we commissioned a piece of work for Natalia. However, we received generous donations from some members of the Re:Library Discord in the form of fan art as you can see below. In addition to this, Amaryllis has decided to invest in us and talks about changes came up and began. We have decided to start sprucing things up per se and are getting: A new discord icon, Discord Banner, New Emotes, New Website Banner commissioned as future projects in our discussions.

Another of said talks was the chance of us being able to sell merch at some point in the hopefully not far off future. Due to very obvious reasons we won’t be able to sell merch of said character’s in novels, which is very unfortunate. In order to overcome this obstacle, we have decided to create our own original characters and sell merchandise of them along with some with the Re:Library Logo. This will honestly be a huge undertaking and we hope you will continue to support us and help us with these endeavors to see them become a reality at some point in the future, so please do help by donating to the General Purpose Patreon Page, any bit helps. We hope you guys will continue to enjoy the novels we provide you and stick around for the hopefully new changes to come.

Now that the difficult talk is done with, let me share some of the fan arts we’ve got so far:

[1] First is the Natalia headshot from Greetings, Automata Maid that we commissioned from angrycomputer.
[2] Next, we have another Natalia in full body glory donated to us by Amaryllis. This is what we’re currently using as our front cover.
[3] Lastly, donated to us by Perry is a full body artwork of Princess from Reborn as a Transcendent.

Big Changes Coming to Patreon

Hello everyone, I’ve been in discussion with my team and getting some feedback from the current subscribers the past few days and we have decided to merge all the patreon pages (Silva, Musubii, Nomad) for easier management and growth potential. We will be carrying out the plan in 3 different phases for smoother transition between the old and the new. We are currently in phase 1 of the plan.

Phase 1 (current phase):
– We will rename Silva’s Patreon page to Project Gender Bender and change the link to match (
– We will unpublish all the current tiers on every Patreon page.
– Create new tiers (see below) on Silva’s Patreon page (now known as Project Gender Bender).
– New subscribers will receive their rewards on Google Drive only.
– Old subscribers will continue to receive their rewards on Patreon until they change to the new tiers.

Phase 2:
– After Plan A is stabilizing, we will start sending DM to those that still haven’t switched from the old tiers and give them Google Drive invites.
– Old subscribers will continue to receive weekly rewards on Patreon while constantly reminded the rewards can now be accessed on Google Drive by dropping links in the weekly posts and reminding them to switch their pledge to the appropriate page/tier.

Phase 3:
– If we managed to convince most people to switch or after we reached the minimum goal on the Project Gender Bender Patreon page, we will immediately cease all activities on the other two Patreon pages and stop posting weekly update for old tiers.

By merging all the Patreon pages, the old tiers will be unpublished and new subscribers are entitled to:

  • Tier 1 – $3 – Early access to 1 novel. (Access to Patreon-only channels in discord; Role@Patreon)
  • Tier 2 – $5 – Early access to 2 novels.

  • Tier 5 – $13 – Early access to 5 novels. (Voting rights on NSFW commissions)
  • Tier 6 – $15 – Early access to 6 novels. (Access to NSFW artwork; Role@Patreon Reward)
  • Tier 7 – $18 – Early access to 7 novels. (2 entries for headshot)
  • Tier 8 – $20 – Early access to 8 novels. (Suggest a character for NSFW poll)
  • Tier 9 – $23 – Early access to 9 novels.
  • Tier 10 – $25 – Early access to 10 novels. (5 entries for headshot commission)
  • Tier 11 – $28 – Early access to 11 novels.
  • Tier 12 – $30 – Early access to 12 novels.

Q: I like the weekly update, losing the weekly updates will mean that I end up forgetting what I read last month.
A: As it seems like this is the biggest gripe everyone is concerned about, I’ll first start by explaining the process. Once we implement this plan, everyone will get access to the Google Drive folder(s) of their choice, within the folder contains a terms sheet, unedited chapters, and two folders for published chapters and edited chapters respectively. Each week I will proofread a certain number of chapters and move them to the edited folder before publishing them on Patreon. What will happen from now on is that, whenever the translator uploaded the unedited chapters, I will post a monthly notice that new chapters are available, but since people seems to prefer the weekly update, I will also be posting a notification on Patreon each week whenever I moved the proofread chapters into the edited folder.

Q: The current system is much better in my opinion. It lets people pick and choose which stories they want and can mix and match as they please.
A: That is not exactly true, if you have keen eyes, you should have noticed, take this page for example, in Tier 1 you can only get Demon Sword Maiden and Dragon Princess, but not Demon Sword Maiden and Transcendent or Dragon Princess and Transcendent, why is that? It’s because of how limited the Patreon tiering system is. That is why we can’t have more than 4 novels in a single Patreon page, and why we have 3 different patreon pages to begin with.

Q: Honestly, this seems like a hot mess and doesn’t make any sense to me. The notion that I’d have to actively contact you to specify which rewards every month only to receive a link to go get it elsewhere seems like way too much trouble.
A: You do not have to message me every month to get your rewards, this is a one-time thing, once you get a link to your reward, you’ll be able to keep assessing the folder for the following months until you cancelled the pledge or want to change your rewards.

Q: Don’t much care for Headshot perk, I’d much prefer an extra novel, if I want a headshot of my OC I’ll do it myself.
A: Please think of the headshot perk as a side benefit, it’s not as if you paying extra for this, you basically get this for free on top of the original rewards you’d be getting. Access to each novel cost $2.50 but it’s not as if we can charge 50 cents on Patreon, that’s why we rounded them up and added extra benefits in every odd tier. If you don’t want it, that’s on you, but you’ll still be getting the same number of novels unlocked based on the respect tier.

– You get a freedom of choice of novel of your choosing.
– We will be able to get a more accurate data of how many users are subscribed to each novel.
– We’ll get charged 3% less fees by Patreon because Silva’s Patreon page charges 5% fees while Musubii and Nomad charges 8%.
– You are free to read at your own pace (read the edited chapters weekly or you can read all the unedited chapters in one go).
– You can download the chapter via Google Drive to read offline.

– You’ll need to reach out to the creator to get access to your reward as it’ll be handed out manually.
– You can only access your reward on Google Drive.
– We’ll need to keep track of all the patreon’s rewards manually.

[Poll] Ideas for Fan Art #1

Today we just received our first payment from Re:Library’s General Purpose Patreon page. We’ve received $35 in total so we can’t really commission a half to full body art with extra details but we should have enough for a simple headshot or emote.

I have two ideas for the first commission:
1) Commission a headshot with simple background from angrycomputer for $20.
2) Commission a Discord emote from Xeph for $35.

The question now is, after we’ve decided on who to commission from, what character to draw? I’m thinking of a headshot for Natalia from Automata Maid so we can maybe use that as a cover pics, what do you think?

Please cast your vote below and leave a comment what you’d like us to commission:

Objectives of the General Purpose Patreon

While I’ve made cursory mention of the General Purpose Patreon before, I’ve never went in-depth as to why this page was created. That is why I will be clarifying a few things about the General Purpose Patreon in this post.

First of all, this page was created at the request of a friend who keeps nagging to me about this at every other opportunity and there were also a few readers who expressed that they do not care about the reward and just wanted to support the site, and that is how this page came to be. I am not expecting to get much out of this Patreon page but it will be a nice little bonus if we do get anything at all.

Next, while we said you won’t be getting any benefits from subscribing to this page, the money we earned will be used for the few purposes listed below, from highest priority to the lowest:

  • Future Upgrades:
    • We have many things planned for the future, starting from the creation, promotion and merchandising of Re:Library mascot characters, to website and discord revamp such as new banner, logo, emotes, etc.
  • Supporting Authors:
    • We will use what little extra money we earned from this page to purchase e-Books from official sources such as Bookwalker or SFACG to support the authors.
  • Fan Art Commissions:
    • When we saved enough money to make a commission, we will find an artist to draw a fan art of the most popular characters from any of the series Re:Library is translating.
  • Translation fees:
    • It’s not easy to keep all the translators paid when you have to deal with more than ten people at once. We have a Patreon page dedicated to gather funding to pay the translators but sometimes it’s still not enough as the earnings constantly fluctuate. In extreme cases, we’ve had to drop a few series because we simply do not have enough funding to justify keeping them ongoing, so any extra money we can earn is a godsend.
  • Site Upkeep:
    • While we have Fana to thank for hosting Re:Library for us and keeping our upkeep fees to the minimum, we do still have to pay for a few things such as the domain license, Cloudflare Pro and other miscellaneous fees.

I hope I am able to shed some light into the objectives of the General Purpose Patreon and if you are financially able and is feeling generous, you can find the links to our Patreon pages down below in the “Support Us” section.

Regarding Toxic Comments on the Site

It has recently come to our attention that some readers on Re:Library have been displaying quite a toxic behavior towards the translator here for their sporadic schedules and we want to remind you that such behavior is highly prohibited.

Firstly, let us stress that it was not the translator who deleted the user’s comment, it was deleted by the admin, so stop harassing the translator. Secondly, there are two different types of project on Re:Library; sponsored and freelance. Sponsored projects have fixed schedules and we understand if people are wondering what’s happening and asking why we didn’t publish it on time, but freelance project is something the translator did out of their own free time, they do not get any money from this and we will not tolerate people harassing the translator for faster updates. Translating is not an easy job and it can often be stressful at times, you condemning them does not help the cause, AT ALL. In fact, the only likely scenario is that it will demotivate the translator and make them stop translating once and for all.

IF you absolutely want to read, why not take up the time to study the language yourself and binge the raw all at once instead of waiting for that one per week chapter or two?
