I was almost done with 4-16 too… Well, I didn’t proofread(lol) what was finished.
I am going to post what I have of 4-16 now, if anyone wants to finish it/the rest, go for it. It is no longer canon material. The entire arc(volume) will be re-done by the author in the future.
I am both happy and angry at these turn of events.
On one hand, his colleagues told him to not ____ Shield. I don’t like what happened to Shield. They also mentioned pacing issues. Well, I don’t think I need to TL/relay the post since google-sensei does a decent job at it.
On the other hand, I’ve said before that I won’t drop series, and I stand by that. I’m not dropping Forsaken Hero. At the same time, I’m not going to spend another 20+ hours working on content that the author himself regrets writing. This isn’t how he intended it to be, and I will respect that. When he begins revising the chapters, I will work on them. When this happens, I will post more information on how this will affect my translations as that will effectively bring my concurrent series up to four.
I do not want to thin myself out so much that everyone feels the series are updated too slowly.
Thanks to anon for informing me that he updated his page saying all of this.
Here’s the link to the unfinished (Story 4-16).
Sorry for those hoping to see how Forsaken Hero ends… but I believe waiting for the ‘true’ ending will be better when all is said and done.
In the end, I am slightly off-put by this turn of events. Not sure if I am going to work on Dragon’s Bloodline right now. Maybe tomorrow. Thanks for your understanding.
