[New Series] Tilea’s Worries

Tilea’s Worries is sponsored by Edmund.

Re:Library will be picking up Tilea’s Worries starting from Volume 3 Chapter 34, immediately after Estellion’s translations. We are also in the middle of bringing all the past chapters to this site. It will take a bit of time to proofread and edit all the chapters, but we are slowly getting there. We just finished volume 2 today and will continue to work on the rest of volume 3.

This project is only possible thanks to the generous donations of Edmund.

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

Some of the keen-eyed readers may have already noticed but we have new Patreon banners spread out all over our site for the last few hours now. In case you didn’t realize, here’s a preview of the banner in question:

Patreon 730x90 1

Patreon button 1700x700 1

Patreon banner

We were meaning to introduce these mascot characters to you much earlier but the artist we commissioned to do the reference sheets for these characters is still not done. In fact, so far only 4 out of 7 are done. Not gonna lie though, 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.

For the time being, I’ll go ahead and introduce to you all the mascot characters we have created, each character is based on one of Re:Library staffs.

1. Sylphie d’Elysium

Arkalagna Ref Sylphie scaled

BackgroundPersonalityPowersBiography
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

Ref Sheet Prog 3 scaled

BackgroundPersonalityBiography
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

Hachi ref Fana scaled

BackgroundPersonalityBiography
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

4. Dex

Hachi Ref Dex scaled

BackgroundPersonalityPowersBiography
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

sample liomad

BackgroundPersonalityPowersBiography
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

Colored Sero scaled

BackgroundPersonalityPowersBiography
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 savour 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 enamoured by the colourful 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
Age: Private (young)
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

Sample Fira 2

BackgroundPersonalityPowersBiography
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] 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 (https://www.patreon.com/ProjectGB).
– 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; [email protected])
  • Tier 2 – $5 – Early access to 2 novels.
  • Tier 3 – $8 – Early access to 3 novels. (Voting rights on new novel pickup and art commission)
  • Tier 4 – $10 – Early access to 4 novels. (1 entry for monthly discord headshot giveaway; [email protected] Patrons
  • 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; [email protected] 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.
  • ….
  • VIP – $50 – Early access to all novels. / Access to Patreon-only channels in Discord. / Voting rights for new novel pickup and art commission. / 10 entries for monthly discord headshot giveaway. / Voting rights for NSFW commission. / Access to NSFW artwork. / Suggest up to 2 characters with some poses for NSFW poll. / Name listed in website’s Hall of Fame page.

FAQs:

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.


Pros:
– 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.

Cons:
– 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?

[New Series] Ragweed Princess

Before we start, I just want to stress that I have a feeling the author knows we’re translating the Hero King webnovel, whenever we’re about to catch up and decide to pick up a new project, the author suddenly released dozens of new chapters. And this happened twice in a row. Hero King was supposed to end with 269 chapters but now it has 309 chapters. That’s more than enough chapters to keep us going strong for another few months!

However, I have decided to push Hero King to the side in favor of picking up a new novel we’ve been eyeing on for some time. The reason being we will eventually catch up again at this rate, so we will be translating Hero King at a slower pace as we put our main focus on the new novel, The Ragweed Princess of the Livitium Imperial Kingdom.

For now, the plan is to release 1 chapter of Ragweed Princess per month until we run out of Hero King chapters to publish. If you’re currently subscribed to Hero King on Patreon, you will continue to receive update for that in addition to the Ragweed Princess. That’s the price of one for two, it’s a steal! If you haven’t subscribed to Patreon already, you can find our Patreon page in the support us section below.

[New Series] Greetings, Automata Maid

Today, we are happy to announce that a new project will soon be published on Re:Library. Greetings, Automata Maid is written by Shizuku on the popular Japanese web novel platform, Syosetu, and will be translated by Nomad. The summary goes like this:

The main protagonist is an automaton maid, the greatest masterpiece yet of the greatest witch, and she decided to hide her memories out of fear of being hard reset and has decided to be an obedient automata. She is then taught by the witch magic and general chores, registered as an adventurer to learn more about society and make her a better creation. After a while, the witch’s daughter comes home and gradually fell in love with her. She sees the daughter as a child (which she is) and see her admiration as a normal admiration of a child towards an elderly figure. So, she actually actively sees the daughters attempts to get close to her as the actions of a single child suddenly having an older model.

Status Update & General Purpose Patreon now Available

We realized Re:Library’s growth has stagnated for a while now and not much new projects have been published recently. Since Re:Library has grown bigger, we also started playing it safe and try to keep our monthly profits in the green, but that has clearly not worked out too well seeing as we haven’t seen much growth since. As such, we’ve decided to take a small risk and cover some of the funding for the new project from our coffer. The latest project on Re:Library is 80% funded by a number of generous patrons and 20% by Re:Library.

Some of our publisher(s) even opted to not receive their share of ad revenues and keep it in tab to help pay for our ever-hardworking translators. And of course, we must also give thanks to Fana, who continues to host Re:Library on her server for free, which has really cut down a lot of expenses for hosting a site on a dedicated server.

We obviously won’t be able to keep funding for new projects from our coffer for an extended period of time so if you are financially-able, please consider subscribing to one of our Patreon pages here: https://re-library.com/project-gender-bender/

There have also been voices asking for a general purpose Patreon for a while now so we have started this page: https://www.patreon.com/relibrary

You will not get early access chapters by subscribing to the general purpose Patreon page, the main intention of this page is to accumulate extra funds to commission fan arts or new emotes for our Discord server (https://discord.gg/re-library), to cover the payment of the translators, or any site upkeep such as renewal of domain and Cloudflare.

[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.
