Musings — Construction Zone Ahead

Haven’t posted the past 2 days. It’s not that I’m not translating, but that I don’t have anything translated that I can post yet.

To be more precise, I’ve begun work on the series that will take the ‘slot’ for Dragon’s Bloodline once it concludes here in 13 chapters. Do note that this is separate from the stretch goal’s reward and while I’m not ready to present the chapters themselves (releases should begin in two or three weeks)…

I decided to begin work on this due to all of the various sources of stress that have recently appeared in my life. I just needed to work on something that wasn’t translating for a while, so I started to look through various Light Novels and Web Novels to see what’s out there that I would want to work on. Obviously, I found one (two, technically, but the other is a candidate for the stretch goal and won’t be brought forth until the time comes).

I’m both behind here and am having troubles in real life, that’s plain to see. However, I can’t let either of those stop me from keeping Ziru’s Musings moving forward. I believe that it’s essential to me as a translator that I keep up a certain level of variety in my translations, both for my mental health and for refining my capabilities as a translator. I hope everyone understands and can agree with my decision.

I will, as ever, continue “catching up”. It may take some time, but I’ve proven in the past that I will always do so. Please keep believing in me!

With that out of the way, here is a sneak peak:

The Magus of Genesis

始まりの魔法使い

 

In an age long lost to legend and myth.
In an age where humans had still yet to establish a system of writing.
It’s said that there existed a mage in a country named Scarlet.
It’s said that he imparted knowledge concerning language and writing, taught how to cultivate the lands, instructed the ways of raising animals, and brought about the gift—nay, the magic of fire.
It’s said that he was a dauntless youth, a Dragon clad in scarlet red scales, a person worshiped far and wide.
It’s said that this man was the God of Civilization.
Yet strangely, his name had been virtually wiped from the records.
Therefore, he was simply referred to as—

—The Magus of Genesis.

  1. Okay. Yeah count me in. Time to pray to God Ziru for chapters… not that i just wanna see more of the girl on the cover… that’s not it at all, nope. (Looks away)

    1. Suspicious….
      *calls police*
      Yeah we have a possible lolicon here, can you send someone over, send SWAT as well since he’s armed and dangerous.

      1. Lolicon or no, that clothing is designed to be stimulating. Where the hey do you find people dressed like that in real? Cosplay brothels?

  2. Oh! That looks good~LDM. I’m looking forward to it~LDM. Hang in there, were cheering for you~~~~~~LDM!

                    1. Obviously lizardkin demi-humans ( PS demi-humans have more human traits, beastmen have more animal traits) are best girls.

                    2. In my imagination they can expel anything they don’t want instantly so it looks like it doesn’t enter but in truth the moment it enters it gets expelled.

                    3. Btw slimes are my favourite thing in any light novel or mmorpg or whatever xD

                    4. Lol what game are you talking about specifically? (Btw what do you mean there with rng?)

                    5. Ah that game, one of those I’d want to try but can’t because I’m a minor and my parents don’t have paypal n stuff

                    6. haha my parents don’t let me use any money, not even to buy me a book :/ (ai crai oll de taims)

                    7. Yeah but no, here it’s pretty tough even finding a part time job and plus I have too many lessons to attend (Yeah even in summer)

        1. The guy in the description reportedly had a dragon forme, which is present in the cover. I’ll assume the girl is ‘just’ harem member 1.

  3. Harem tag tho :/ but lolis

    also I think the translator of She Professed Herself The Pupil Of The Wiseman said he’s fine with others translating as he’s not been doing so for quite some time, at leas the LN, I heard some bad things about the WN so I am not too interested in the WN, so maybe you can consider this one sometime in the future

  4. Read the damn announcement, it says there it has approximately another volume done and is still ongoing

  5. I came here for Harem and Isekai tag ^^
    are there level or status thing in this novel??

    and i hope the MC is OP, if not then its OK XD
