Musings — Why Forsaken Hero (LN) is a Different Experience

Raw (Same between WN and LN):

浜風は最近、かなり攻めの姿勢できている。それが何故かは俺自身理解しているし、気持ちもわかる。
自分はいつでも捨てられる身にある。
この思念がきっと今の彼女を作り出しているのだ。俺も過去に通った道だ。
嫌われないように道化を演じる。何枚もの仮面を被る。
彼女のこういうスキンシップもそれの一部だ。だから、変な期待はしない。何より辛いのは浜風自身だ。

WN (OLD translation):

Recently Hamakaze has taken a rather aggressive attitude when it comes to that. Also why is it I need to know your feelings, understand mine.
I have a body that can be discarded at any time.
It’s this thought that is exacerbated by her right now. I’ve been down this road before.
Play a clown so that I’m not disliked. Suffer through wearing many masks.
This physical contact with her is part of it. So it shouldn’t be strange that above all, the painful one is Hamakaze.

LN (NEW translation):

Recently, Hamakaze’s started to take a more proactive attitude. I knew why. I knew what she felt, too.
She’s in a position where she could be abandoned whenever.
That thought was definitely pervading her mind. Even I’d been like that in the past.
Playing the jester so that you won’t be hated. Wearing however many masks you need.
Her skinship here is just another part of that. That’s why I’m not hoping for anything weird. Right now, the one who’s hurting the most is Hamakaze herself.

I WAS SHIT!! THAT’S WHY!!

The Forsaken Hero — V 1 Ch 12

(I’ll be asleep when this comes out, so if someone could add it to Novel Updates, that would be greeeeat…)

Decided to go fully localized with this series, similar to what I do with The Magus of Genesis. Thoughts so far? I think it’s turning out well, at least…

Enjoy the end of the series’ first act!

The Forsaken Hero — V 1 Ch 9

Heya.

Turned out that this chapter was super short, shortest of what’ll be coming out from here on, so uh… just pretend it was part of chapter 8 I guess. >.< Enjoy! (It was previously mentioned that Daichi had 2 Slots in chapter 8. I’ll be changing Slots to Open Slots for clarity!)

The Forsaken Hero — V 1 Ch 5

Heya. For those who don’t know, I’ve been out of town for longer than expected. Translating here before now didn’t exactly work out. Heading back home here in a few hours and finally have some free time to get this (and the next chapter soon) out.

Enjoy

The Forsaken Hero — Light Novel

What you see below can be found here.


Good evening, Yujima Ran here.

It’s finally just two weeks until the release of…
[The Forsaken Hero]!

The cover was released!
It was done super cool and cute!

 

 

The person featured on the cover is the hero. Katsuragi Daichi and the heroine, Hamakaze Shuri.
The background’s awesome, too.
I truly can’t thank the illustrator, Teffish-sama, enough…!

Next, the character design!

 

 

From left to right:
Hayase Fuuko, Hamakaze Shuri, Katsuragi Daichi, Tamaki Yuina (Shield), Akina Leadred
All of their features were captured amazingly, they’re all wonderful…

All of these splendidly drawn characters are illustrated within the book as well, so everyone, I definitely think it’s alright for you to feel hyped!

Every picture is amazing! My lord…

[The Forsaken Hero: Volume 1]’s release date is December 20th.

You can now reserve it at Amazon and others, so thank you!

Now then, excuse me.

 

Translator Comment:

First off, I made two edits to the original post to reduce confusion:

  1. The proper title of the novel is [The Forsaken Hero Who Returns From Death Becoming the Demon King]—everyone who reads my translations should know that I dislike long titles by now, so I will only ever refer to this series as [The Forsaken Hero].
  2. The novel was released on November 30th, but not online until December 20th, so I will be unable to do anything further until that date.

Now, everyone, while I do intend to translate this series—I’ve promised as much multiple times in the past—I can not say for sure what date I’ll be fully picking it up. I have other series to consider, obviously.

I will certainly be buying the eBook and setting up a ToC as soon as possible. I will also be translating whatever images I can, as well as clean and typeset them as I’ve recently done with The Magus of Genesis: Volume 2‘s illustrations. It may become a seldom updated series until I get caught up(…-ish) on everything else.

But, for now… the hype is real. ^^

Musings — Forsaken Hero Getting a LN!?

The following was taken from Yujima Ran’s blog post, which can be found here. What you will see at the end of this post are my own thoughts.


 

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.

So, everyone.

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?

Musings — On the Topic of Forsaken Hero

So the author of Forsaken Hero posted a new life report the other day. It’s pretty short, but it is just saying:

I’m alive.

Recently, my secondary work on Hamelin has been becoming my main, but I think that I’d like to continue working in a my pace way here as well.

Here’s my Hamelin page. If you would, please check it out:

https://syosetu.org/?mode=user&uid=78710

 

He has begun posting chapters for a new series (loosely translated as): “I was Chosen to be a Demon King but I’m Aiming to be a Hero“. Still no updates on Forsaken Hero, though. As he says, he’s taking a very my pace approach to this and appears to be putting Forsaken Hero on the back burner.

Well then.

I really don’t want to drop a series, but I honestly can’t tell if it’s me dropping it so much as the author at this point. What do you guys think? Should I stop caring about Forsaken Hero? Should I keep waiting, keeping all of you in anticipation as well?

Update by Forsaken Hero’s Author, Yuuto Ran

Here’s a loosely translated update post from the author on 6/3 that can be found here.

[Life Report] Slump

 

Good morning. Good evening. Yuuto Ran here.

 

It’s as the title says.
I’m in a slump.

 

I’ve fell into them before, but it’s awful this time.
I’m generally writing trash, it usually fixes itself by writing trash though.

 

As for the reason, it’s probably a lack of motivation?
Losing motivation is the same as losing time to write, you know?

 

Right now I’m not writing many words, and everyday I keep reading about everyone’s progress in writing.

 

I apologize to the people who usually comment and let me know their impression. I’m sorry for you all taking the trouble to send me messages of your concern.
Since I’ve been keeping at it in order to somehow struggle and reach the conclusion, when I take a peek at them, it makes me very happy.

 

Sometimes, since I decide to contribute to life reports to show that I’m still alive instead of short stories or short publications, it would make me very happy if you thought something like: [Oh, that guy’s still alive huh?].

 

Well then.
