Extra Info

The Epic Tale of the Forsaken Hero

Regarding redoing the fourth arc: The author finally resumed releasing chapters, with the first new one since March on Dec. 7th! He hasn’t posted anything since then, not even a life report on his blog. Here’s to hoping? (~’.’)~

As of 2017/3/26, still no new updates.

Read this for more information.

Lazy Dungeon Master

Man, I can’t wait to see how Keima’s new dungeon messes with intruders. His traps, in particular… XD

I wonder how many people are interested in reading more retranslations of the first few chapters…? Thinking about going until around chapter 12 or so.

Dragon’s Bloodline

Serge is never going to shine, is he?

There’s been so many chances for him, too… Will Chris ever see the light~?

The Guild’s Cheat Receptionist

Just like last week. Great to read, hard to translate. Over seven hours for the one chapter, crazy stuff haha. Hope everyone enjoyed the ending to the super long first chapter of the book!

Inside the Cave of Obscenity

Slime… mind… break…~

  1. Woo, cannot wait to read it all. Well LDM that is for the moment.

    For other series, I tend to like to wait till there is at least 2 volumes to binge read all at once, so I’ll wait patiently for more before I partake.

    On Dragon’s Bloodline, I think that is a relatively short series that you are well close to finishing or at least 3/4ths of the way thru? On that I almost feel like I should wait till it is all out to just marathon thru the whole series.

    Yay for Lazy Dungeon Master, my guilty pleasure (Meat is adorable).

  2. Honestly,I have already read the first few chapters several times so I don’t think I will read them again if you retranslate them;)

    1. I shall reread them, but then again I like going thru books multiple times if I really enjoy them.

      Not only do I read the books as I am a fast reader, so this is the quickest way, but at work I can go thru books as well. I use the NaturalReader program to have text read out loud (actually paid for the program as the program itself is nice, the voices included not so much and placed it on my surface). The program works very well in that it can read PDF, EPUB, DOC (word documents), TXT (such as notepad) and even web pages. I prefer it on an epub, pdf or copied to word as then I don’t need to worry about an internet connection, which is not always available. As far as how well it reads thing, very well in most pronunciations and you can fix those that are wrong (such as regularly occurring words that are not from the english language, like the left in Japanese names and such).

      As far as the voices used with the program use the IVONA voices. Specifically the ones for British English, not the American English voices, as I personally think they are better. The IVONA voices however are super expensive (and I won’t tell you how to get something like that on an open forum of course), sitting at around $800 for the voice pack. See? Expensive, but you do (or don’t if you crack it) get your monies worth from the quality.

      The only thing it doesn’t do well is sound effects and laughing as the voice programs don’t know how to do inflections, so it often comes off funny or creepy, but ah well. It sill allows for easy to understand, read out loud novels without the need of hiring a reader to read the book and you can do it with anything that is in text.

      I’m a programmer and can multitask quite well, so I have books playing for all 8 hours (10 hours if doing overtime when I feel like it) of my shift. This means I can go thru novels of say the length of Overlord by about 1.5 novels a day (Overlord being one of my favorites and I honestly don’t get bored of things I like, having listened to all the books and read them personally over 8 times each straight thru, or close enough). I’ve gone thru sooooo many novels, all the popular ones in general, pretty much everything on sites like Wuxiaworld and Gravity Tales. Shalvation Translation’s Korean novel Dungeon Defense is absolutely amazing and worth multiple rereads. The other novel, My Asylum is also pretty good, though nowhere near as good as Dungeon Defense.

      Having the book read to you from something like a Surface/Laptop is super convenient as you can then listen to the book while you drive (haha guilty of that) to not waste your time driving thru traffic and it isn’t a visual distraction (just make sure you can multitask as I’m not responsible if you cannot do more than one thing and stop paying attention to the road….) It also allows you to do multiple other things at once, like games (that don’t involve story you need to pay close attention to as I like to do one story thing at a time), or work as I’ve mentioned before.

      I’m the type that cannot put down a book that I find interesting and need to know how it turns out once I start. I of course read English novels too. The Abhorsen series by Garth Nix (fist volume is called Sabriel, followed by Liriel and the third book is title Abhorsen, there is a fourth book as well, but the title is escaping my mind at the moment). The English web novel Worm is amazing and very much worth it for a different take on super heroes. I will admit though that Japanese light novels are generally my favorite, but Korean and Chinese ones are fun too. I could go on to name many if anyone likes and my thoughts on them if people wanted recommendations, though not that my opinion is from anyone special, I think?

      Anywho, yay rambling……..

  3. mind breaking dungeon and mind breaking slime, yeay, the receptionist are more like heart breaker than mind breaker for now, haven’t tried dragon bloodline though

  4. Thank you for all the great work. If looks like a very aggressive schedule. Make sure to take care of yourself as well!

    Personally, I think that while the early chapters were kinda rough, they were fine. I’d rather see more of the thus dungeon battle and hear that you’re having some fun as well and doing well. But I’m just thankful you’re translating LDM and glad for whatever you choose to do so… 🙂

  5. O_O Finally The Epic Tale of the Forsaken Hero has come back from hiatus to ongoing!!! HELL YEAH!!! (That series was the one that originally brought me to your site here.

    1. W-well, it’s still been almost 4 months since that single chapter was posted.

      I’ll let everyone know once another one is released.
