I wonder if Maidence and Yudence being puns off of My Dance and You Dance are obvious enough…? Hmm.

 

The Guild’s Cheat Receptionist

Aaaaand it’ll be back next week (2 releases)

 

 Inside the Cave of Obscenity

Same as GCR.

 

 The Magus of Genesis

This week will be the last one for a while where there’ll be three releases of this series. Gotta pace it out so that we don’t catch up to current (in this case, v2ch31) and run out of things to translate for the series!

Schedule of the Week

 

It’s been over two months since I last made one of these. Oh. My. God.

Well, I’m back to making them now that I have a good bit of my time back, ‘cept for this week. I’m gonna be dead this week. BUT I’M HERE TODAY AND THAT MEANS SOMETHING! Going to figure that MG v1’s last part came out in last week’s “batch”, making it the first week in, again, over two months I hit my quota of 7 chapters. And, again, oh my god.

may or may not have spent the past 7 hours looking at photoshop to clean/typeset MG v2’s illustrations instead of translate… orz

Again, sorry to everyone about waiting so long to do the name changes. They’re never a fun thing, neither for you readers nor for me… but I was very off in what I had, so I needed to fix them. The puns must survive!

 

The Guild’s Cheat Receptionist

Aaaaand it’ll be back week after next.

Volume 7 is out. I’m slow. Very, very slow.

 

 Inside the Cave of Obscenity

Aaand same as with GCR. Week after next.

 

 The Magus of Genesis

The ending to Volume 1 made me cry so hard. In the middle of the library. At my college. Surrounded by people… yeah. I got a few awkward stares. (~’.’)~ The feels were just too strong.

Also, Sword Division -> Swordsaint  (Previously mentioned in V1 Ch15 opening quote)

Turns out it was a family name and that I was misreading 部 as bu (division/group/etc) instead of be (hereditary group). Not a literal translation, but fits context perfectly and follows my guidelines in how I localize this series in particular.

Also, the heroine to be introduced in v2 uses ‘Boku’ because it’s shorter and faster to say than ‘Watashi’. It won’t be mentioned in my translation, but… yeah. Felt I should mention it here before I inevitably forget to say it in next week’s schedule!

Schedule of the Week

Trying to get through MG a bit quicker as volume 2 is going to be released next week…!

And trying to make up for previous weeks’ lack of total releases. Might add another LDM release to this list.

Woo for typing this up at college! Mondays/Wednesdays are so filled for me… trying to use all the spare time I have to keep up here, haha

Do you guys think I need to continue adding things like (Patreon) (Catch-Up) etc? I keep track of them on my side, but I dunno if I should go back to adding them on to the schedule itself…

Dragon’s Bloodline

Heya everyone, finished off Dragon’s Bloodline earlier this week, so that’s awesome.

 

The Guild’s Cheat Receptionist

Everything seems to be pointing to The Guild’s Cheat Receptionist’s return next week.

 

 Inside the Cave of Obscenity

ICO v2 Ch7 Pt5 will be released some time on Thursday to catch up for what I didn’t finish last week. The following two releases will be on Friday and Saturday.

 

 The Magus of Genesis

Wow, so volume 2 will be released here on the 20th. Definitely didn’t expect the author to get it ready that fast. The hype is real~

Somehow managed to find the time to get most of chapter 19 ready today between my earlier classes (had a 2 hr break), so chapter 17 should be out early-ish on the 7th.

Schedule of the Week

 

First day of the semester, done…! So many classes. So much walking. So much HOT (106F/41C). Misunderstanding happened and I ended up walking … and walking… and walking… Needless to say, I got a sunburn and managed to dehydrate myself. Huge cheer for being burnable by a bright light bulb and yay for misunderstandings!

And now that summer vacation is over—well, it was basically over last month given all the stuff I’ve had to get through—I’ll be reverting my ‘base’ 3 chapters/week back to 2 chapters/week. I know it’ll leave a sour taste for you all (myself included) due to my massive, massive lack of releases lately… but yeah. I’m still figuring out if/how I’ll even be able to keep up with the 7 total releases per week. It’ll be easier if I use heavy coursework weeks on easier to translate series like LDM and MG, but I’ve already found myself doing that over the past few weeks. Hmm.

In other news, we’re about to hit the end of v2 of ICO and the actual end of DB. 2 releases for ICO, 6 for DB. I’m going to be putting GCR on an official 3 week hiatus. It’s already been quite a while since I’ve last put out a release for the series, but it will need to wait that much longer. If I can manage to finish DB before those three weeks are up, it’ll come out at that point.

… At least LDM’s release rate hasn’t suffered from my inadequacies, right? Right? ><

Did that scene between Keima and Leona remind anyone else of a certain scene between monkey-arm girl and Kararararararararagi?

Kyaah! Kyaaah!

 

Dragon’s Bloodline

I very much dislike the turn this ending’s taken. I only translate this to finish the series at this point.

Saddening. It’s the second series I ever picked up to translate and I feel it’s only gotten worse since the start of the ‘second act’, so to speak.

But also, please take a look at something the author has said:

ちなみに私自身も母方に中国系の親戚がおりますので、主人公たちとは違う意見を持っています。
By the way, I have Chinese relatives on my mother’s side, so I do have a different opinion than what the main characters have.

So if you are like me and are frustrated at the MCs’ beliefs, please don’t aim that frustration at the author. It was his choice to make his story’s characters act like that, true, but in the end, they are not his views on the subject. Yeah.

 

The Guild’s Cheat Receptionist

It’s been a long time. *sigh*

 

 Inside the Cave of Obscenity

We’ll be hitting the end of volume 2 here this week, so that’ll be fun. I wonder what’ll happen~

 

 The Magus of Genesis

I think this is the first schedule post I’ve made since picking up this series. Already halfway through volume one, the only book released for it so far. (~’.’)~

Yeah, loving it so hard right now. It’s the first time I’ve enjoyed a series with this many time skips, honestly. The MC has the general Japanese MC timid personality, but he truly does make attempts to rationalize them and decide if his views are right or wrong before acting on them. Mmm, so good.

Schedule of the Week

ICO -> 3 Behind
GCR -> 2 Behind

I do feel bad for my ICO/GCR readers for what’s happened recently—what with my extreme lack of releases for them—but I simply can’t make up for the missed chapters while also keeping my other projects moving forward at a decent pace. I do have a number of Magus of Genesis chapters ready to go, however. At least for now, please accept those chapters and the surplus DB chapters as me catching up. Read Extra Info for more info.

This is another 2-week schedule to give a better idea of my short-term plan.

Extra Info

The Magus of Genesis

I interrupt your regularly scheduled [Extra Info] with this important brand new series announcement!

This Saturday at noon PDT, I will be releasing the first three chapters of The Magus of Genesis, followed by five more chapters at a rate of one per day beginning on Sunday. Along with this, next week, I will only be releasing a single chapter of Lazy Dungeon Master, with everything else being Dragon’s Bloodline and the release hype chapters of The Magus of Genesis. I will be attempting to dash to the epilogue and finish the series to help usher in the new one!

Additionally, from now on, $5 Patrons will gain [MG Prerelease Access +1] , with $10 Patrons gaining [MG Prerelease Access +2].

Schedule of the Week x2

 

I’m having a bit of trouble IRL right now, so I don’t think I can make good on the ICO Patreon Goal releases until at least late, late next week or the week after. Patreon releases should continue as normal, however. Now that I’ve finished with all of the Goal Chapter releases, LDM’s release rate will go back down to 3/week. I’ll try and space them out to every other day from here on so that there aren’t any 2 or 3 day gaps inbetween releases. Also, the last 2 Guild’s Cheat Receptionist releases were much shorter than expected. The remaining ones for this volume should be back to the expected length.

(Bit late in posting this schedule, so I’m tacking on next week’s as well)

Realized that I included the wrong chapter number for DB in the last schedule post, haha. Started freaking out thinking that I’d missed another chapter… thankfully not.

Just to be clear, note that Rokuko truly is speaking very differently from how she used to. I’ve tried my best in showing that through her dialogue, but I’m obviously not as skilled as an author in this area. To be exact, Rokuko is using much more complex sentence structures than she’d ever used in the first 100 or so chapters, as well as no longer ending the majority of her sentences in ‘wayo’ (a very childish sentence end) and heavily gives the feeling of ‘you know?’—even more so than the usual ‘yo’ people translate as ‘you know?’. Yeah.

Also, just how much has Rokuko fallen for Keima for her ideal sexy image to be a likeness of him? Haha.

Dragon’s Bloodline

I feel rather let down by the author’s attempt at making a ‘climax chapter’ with his recent reveal of what the Great Collapse is. It was surmised as such multiple chapters ago… =(

 The Guild’s Cheat Receptionist

(~’.’)~ Nothing to say

 Inside the Cave of Obscenity

The end to V2 Ch6 Pt5 is probably my favorite piece from this entire volume, to be honest. I love how it worked in English so well and so easily—statements like those are generally hard to make work in English and keep the same feeling.

Heya everyone!

First off, excuses time! (Feel free to skip all of this if you want…) This week, I: took my grandma to her second eye surgery (left eye’s cataract removal, last time was her right eye), got a migraine that didn’t go away all of Sunday/part of Monday, and finally got super addicted to reading a mostly bad series (Warlock of the Magus World–holy crap the fact that the TL uses ‘degrees’ instead of ‘points’ and the fact that the formatting of every line that ends in a bracket is messed up triggers me) simply because it has an AI in it.

Secondly, I’ll be pushing back the fifth goal’s completion bonus chapters and last week’s missed chapters to next week so that I can somehow manage to complete this week’s normal chapter counts. No sense in falling further behind to prioritize extra stuff first, right?

Heya everyone!

Managed to almost finish the catch up despite releasing the two Patreon GOAL chapters. Well… we hit another goal this week, too. And this was a special one. The 4th goal. One with 2x the bonus. You know that that means?

!Extra Awesomeness! (We’re even really close to the 5th and final goal…)

And for anyone looking closely at the amount of Patron chapters and wondering if there’s something weird going on, it’s something that was voted on by my Patrons. For a tl;dr: I have 4 series, but 3 non-Patreon releases per week. To manage that, I cycle which weeks GCR and DB have non-Patreon releases. Along with that, GCR releases now count as two Patreon releases on the weeks GCR is cycled out for its non-Patreon release due to the amount of time I spend on translating it relative to my other series. It’s a little confusing, I know, but if you have any questions or concerns, feel free to ask in the comments and I’ll be sure to answer.
For a tl;dr on the tl;dr: GCR takes ridiculous time to TL, so it takes a second Patreon release slot. Patrons voted in the change.
