Information on [The Epic Tale of the Forsaken Hero]’s Publication
Good evening everyone, it’s been a while.
Yujima Ran here.
It’s as the title says.
It was decided that [The Epic Tale of the Forsaken Hero] will be published as a Light Novel.
My hands are still shaking in excitement.
It’s been more than two years since I began to write the series and I feel truly honored at being given a chance like this.
And because I do appreciate having this opportunity—
As well as because of all of the support I’ve received from my readers this whole time—
I want to give it my all.
Even if it is somewhat sluggish, I have resumed updating once again.
The updates will resume starting July 1st.
As ever, I may be inexperienced, but I will do my best.
Thank you, and I look forward to seeing you all from here on out.
The formal title, release date, etc. will be announced as soon as I find out.
I’ll leave it there for now, see you soon.
This is a thing that’s happening.
I assume that he’ll be rewriting the story a good amount, given the fact that he’s already shown some level of regret over certain events. I think I might give translating the LN a shot once it is released. Of course, not until I’m in a better situation with the other series I translate—namely, catching up to current on Magus of Genesis, finishing Dragon’s Bloodline, and making up for the releases of Inside the Cave of Obscenity and The Guild’s Cheat Receptionist that I’m behind on.
Yeah. I’m actually rather excited here. This series was the first one I ever translated, after all. What do you all think?
