[New Member] CatatoPatch joins Re:Library

Say hello to the newest member of Re:Library, CatatoPatch. If anyone of you still remember him, he was the translator who’s famous for translating The Devil’s Evolution Catalog. Through some weird twists of fate and a little bit of convincing, CatatoPatch has decided to join Re:Library and continue translating The Devil’s Evolution Catalog for a period of time! A new chapter is already available on Re:Library, so go give it a read!

Old fans should be rejoicing for the continuation of this series right now. And for the new readers, this series is borderline Gender Bender but not really Gender Bender since the protagonist is actually genderless (but he looks feminine otherwise and is mostly treated as a female by others). Think Tensei Shitara Slime, their human form looks feminine but they’re actually genderless, so it’s not Gender Bender.

Other than that, Catato will also be bringing us the Song of Adolescence, which will probably be his main project on this site. It is a wuxia story with never before seen grand adventures that will knock you off your feet. Well yea okay, I admit I’m not a big fan of wuxia novel and I’ve never actually read this novel yet. I’m just finding whatever flowery words I can to impress and lure in new readers, but hey, Catato said it’s a good read so you should definitely give it a try.

Demon Sword Maiden Giveaway

Anyone remembered the keychains I commissioned a while back? Due to certain circumstances and a lack of international flights, we had to delay the giveaway events and confirm how long it’d take for the first batch to be delivered. Now that we’ve confirmed that most of them have been received by the recipients, we’ll resume the giveaway event immediately.

To participate in the giveaway event, you simply need to like our Facebook page or follow us on Twitter, then share or re-tweet our Facebook/Twitter posts below. Please make sure you set your share setting to the public, if we can’t see the post, it’ll be invalid.

10 lucky winners will get the Lily keychain.
5 lucky runner-ups will get the Nanako keychain.

If you’re not feeling so lucky, we have four extra of each keychain remaining, you can buy those off Silva at what he feel is a reasonable price, do DM Silva#3719 on Discord (https://discord.gg/re-library) if you wish to reserve one of these limited keychains. First come first served.

∴ Please note: You will need to disclose your shipping address to receive these keychains. And please expect up to 3 or 4 months before it is delivered. If no international flight is available to your country, it could potentially take longer than that.

[Index] A Wild Last Boss Appeared

Before we start, allow me to clarify first that Re:Library is not picking up this project. We’ve had a talk with TpstT last November and received the permission from both of the current translators to “index” A Wild Last Boss on Re:Library with a two weeks delay policy.

Yes, I know this has been long overdue but since Fire was on an uploading spree and forced me to get to it, we’re finally going to start indexing these chapters on Re:Library. You can now read A Wild Last Boss on Re:Library at your own convenience, no more juggling between two different sites. But of course, if you wish to catch the latest update, you’d still have to visit the translators’ respective sites, unless you’re willing to wait two weeks before they’re uploaded on Re:Library.

[Teaser] My Loli Brother

Huh? Another new series? Nay, don’t get too excited yet, you notice the “teaser” in the title? That’s right! This be just a teaser, we’re not picking this up fer real! This might be one of those projects that will be updated once every week or never. For now, since I no longer have a project to call my own, I will be translating random teasers here and there. Eventually, I will put up a poll and let you guys vote among all the teasers that I do which you want us to pick up.

Anyway, moving on, let me talk a bit more about this novel. Do note that I am the type the only read as I translate so I honestly don’t know much more than you other than what I’ve translated and read. Firstly, this is a Chinese Gender Bender novel, well duh, and it takes place in an RPG world. The brother and sister fought over the PC and they unexpectedly got transported into an RPG world as a result, and to top it all off, the brother turned into a blue-haired loli. Now, the brother-sister pair is trapped in this strange world and in order to survive, they must get stronger. And thus, they set off to hunt a wild boar… but wait…?

[News] Giveaway Event Delayed

Remember the chibi art I commissioned for Demon Sword Maiden a while back? That’s right, I’ve made them into keychains and was thinking of holding a giveaway event soon after I delivered the first batch to the editors and patrons, but due to “unforeseen circumstances”, the keychains are still being held at the post station and not yet dispatched. It is unfortunate, but I believe we will have to delay the giveaway event until further notice.

Meanwhile, you may want to like and follow our Facebook or Twitter page! The rule of the giveaway event is pretty simple, you just gotta like our posts on the social media page and share (or retweet) them to the “Public”. Then, from there, we will randomly select a few winners to receive the prize. While the event has been delayed, it never hurts to start interacting with our social media page early, if you get that “top fan” badge on Facebook, you are more likely to get noticed and be selected to receive the prize.

I will keep you guys updated when the giveaway event officially begins.

[News] How the Epidemic has affected the Publishers as a Whole

I believe many of you are under the assumption now that everyone is locked at home due to the current “situation”, that the publishers are earning crazy bucks and is having the time of their life right? Well, normally, that would be the case, but what we all didn’t know is that the ad rates is easily influenced by the economic situation.

Since Digital ad budgets are the fastest and easiest to pull when the market drops and revenue forecasts for public companies (the ones that advertise the most) change; digital ad campaigns rarely involve any sort of contract, and it’s pretty simple to cut a campaign or add one back in quickly. Businesses who advertise, particularly public companies, want to keep their company in or near the black as much as possible, especially as they have to report their earnings at the end of Q1 (March 31st). If they can easily cut an expenditure, they will.

The long and short of it is that since everyone is now locked at home, there are much lower demands for stuffs like petrol and non-essentials, so the public companies spend less money to advertise their stuff, which in turn drag down the ad rates. Here’s an easy diagram to compare the fall in ad rates compared to last year:

Screen Shot 2020 07 16 at 11.45.16 AM

Another factor which I believe is causing the ad rates to fall is that the ads on mobile devices tend to have a higher rates, but now that everyone is locked at the comfort of their home and is more likely to use their PC than their phone, that has in turn deflated the ad rates we are earning. Not to mention that it is far more easier to install Adblocker on a PC than a phone.

If it is not too much to ask, we’d appreciate it if you can add our site to your Adblocker’s whitelist. And I know some of you out there may be eager to help, but I don’t recommend to spam click the ads. Clicking the ads and immediately closing it would instead increases the bounce rate and be treated as an “ad fraud”, it would actually do us more harm than good. We’ll be eternally grateful if you can just whitelist our site and only click on an ad which you are genuinely interested in.

I know this is a hard time for everyone, but we all should do our part to stay at home and prevent the spread of the epidemic as much as possible. Please stay safe and keep yourself healthy, we can get through this together. Bless you.

[New Series] Hero King

And here, Re:Library brought to you… yet another new series!! Two new series in one month, wow!! Huh? What? Did I say something about restraining myself and slowing down my pace? You must’ve misheard. When there are so many capable translators out there looking for a job, when there are still so many Gender Bender novels out there that I wanted to read, how can I restrain myself!

This translator is introduced to me by Yuki, he is known as Mab, and honestly, this is probably one of the best translator I’ve seen yet. His work attitude is admirable, he works really fast, and his vocabulary is also pretty good. I can’t ask for better! Please put your hands together and give Mab a warm welcome.

The plan for Hero King is 2 chapters per week, this for now is a teaser chapter. We will only officially start publishing this series at a fixed time in May.

[Original Novel] Worlds Unknown

Hello everyone, this is Alruna here. I am an avid reader and a lazy writer, I write when I have nothing good to read. So, lez hope that I have nothing good to read for a long time so that I’ll be able to finish this story as soon as possible.

Anyhow, this story ‘Worlds Unknown’ has been in the works for me for years, that I kept dropping and picking up and editing along the way. Throughout all these edits, I could even see the way I have been maturing over the years. So now, finally, once and for all, I am ready to finally show my work to the world. Although most of what I have written is still in need of some editing, you’ll know that at least I have most of the storylines planned out.

So, won’t you guys join me in this adventure with my fictional lead human character, Evelyn as she stumbles headfirst into an unknown world of supernatural where her life-or-death hangs over her head every second of the day? Sounds fun to me ;P I will try to update this as soon as I can possibly make it.

[New Series] Hero’s Redo

And Re:Library brings to you… a new Gender Bender novel!!! Hero’s Redo ~ A Hero That Once Saved the World Reborn as a Girl ~ is a slice of life action story about a hero who was traumatized by politics and people afraid of him for being too powerful, so the mage in his party decided to turn him into a girl. But he was so traumatized to interact with humans that he just hid inside the mountains until two girls who came to the mountain were caught in danger. After saving them, they decided to bring her to their town to pay her back for helping them. Thus begins the new life of our traumatized hero.

The original plan was to start this project next month when we finish Female Knight & Dark Elf, but the project was pushed forward thanks to one of our sponsors. Therefore, we commissioned a temporary translator (who I’m not going to name) to do the first batch, but even after one whole month, we still get nothing from said translator, and this is the only chapter we end up with. Even so, the quality of the translation is so bad it’s giving me headache just to proofread it. Fortunately or unfortunately, we even have had to make two of our Patrons edit for us, I’m gonna build a shrine to worship Exisero-sama and Yanga-sama.

To ensure that the vote is carried out fair and square, please give both novels a try first and see which one you like more. This voting session will have a huge impact on these two series moving forward. The one who comes out on top will receive the favor of the translator and receive a steady update, while the loser will probably be dropped or receives a slow update depending on the translator’s circumstances.

Re:Library takes over Wiseman

With the consent of the latest translator for Pupil of the Wiseman (WN), Re:Library will now be taking over the translation of this great web novel series.

And a great series like this naturally deserves to be respected in all its glories! It started going downhill ever since Saiaku Translations picked this up. Yes, Saiaku, I still remember you and I still hold a grudge over what you did to this great novel! Not only was it a poorly rendered machine translation of this great series, he even opted to use the stupid Shakespearean tone in Mira’s dialog. And the worst offender of all? He rejected my invitation to host Wiseman on Re:Library and went ahead to block out all readers with an ad link for the reason that he wanted to buy a domain of his own, the worst move any translator could ever make! Now just take a look at where did that take him? Even his site is no longer working! Hmph, serves you right!

Oops, wait a minute, this isn’t supposed to be a ranting corner. Anyway, like I said, this series has been ruined by being passed around to so many incompetent translators and to show our greatest respect for this series, we decided to rewrite this series from the ground up (with help from various editors and translators) while compiling a terms sheet for personal use.

New chapters when? Well? We don’t know about that yet, we already found a translator to continue Wiseman from where it left off, but in order to provide y’all with the best translations he can, he’s currently reading through the chapters to get to know what’s going on, while doing translation check at the side. So it might be a while before we see a new chapter.

On that topic though, we figured we might be splitting the chapters into several parts when we start publishing new chapters. While I was looking into the raw, I noticed that each chapter is averaging around 7k ~ 9k characters, that’s a helluva lots of characters to translate into English! So we thought we might as well split them into an average of 3k ~ 4k characters (the average length of most web novels) and publish them like that in order.

With all that said and done, look forward to reading the revamped Wiseman on Re:Library soon-ish!

[Teaser] How can the Saintess be a Boy!?

Tada~! Now that we finally have a new translator for Demon Sword Maiden, it is finally time for me to pick up a new series!



…NOT!

Well, let’s calm down and not click the close button yet, for now, this is a teaser chapter, but once I’m sure the new translator is ready to take on Demon Sword Maiden by himself, I’ll have more free time since that means less work for me. At that time, I will try to tackle this new project seriously. This is a novel Immortal Dreamer said he wanted to pick up at some point in time. Oh, who was Immortal Dreamer you ask? He was the previous translator I hired for Demon Sword Maiden but never got to stick around due to his sudden disappearance, probably due to some unforeseen accident.

Since he went missing and all, I can’t really talk to him about this project, so I thought I might as well pick it up and pass the project to him once he returns from the unknown. For now, enjoy reading this teaser and let me know your thoughts.
