Schedule of the Week

Didn’t want to dis my friend and translate the entire time he was here, so I’m behind of schedule (as usual) lol. Looking to clear out the last bit of LDM and GCR’s queues and chip away more at DB’s.

I’m not looking to rip anyone off or misrepresent what I’m doing with donations, so if there’s any questions about what likely looks to be arbitrary decisions over what is a ‘Donation Chapter’ and what isn’t… feel free to ask! Trying to ‘fairly’ do some freebie chapters since I have so much extra time right now, but they’ve definitely be mostly for LDM since there’s so much interest in the series.

  1. Lazy Dungeon Master — Chapter 147
  2. Lazy Dungeon Master — Chapter 148
  3. Lazy Dungeon Master — Chapter 149 (Extra)
  4. Inside the Cave of Obscenity 2 — Chapter 2 (Part 5)
  5. The Guild’s Cheat Receptionist 2 — Chapter 1 (Part 13)
  6. The Guild’s Cheat Receptionist 2 — Chapter 1 (Part 14) (Extra)
  7. The Guild’s Cheat Receptionist 2 — Chapter 2 (Part 1) (Extra)
  8. Dragon’s Bloodline — Chapter 83
  9. Dragon’s Bloodline — Chapter 84 (Extra)

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 2017/1/9, still no new updates.

Lazy Dungeon Master

Just a few more chapters left in the ‘Extra Arc’ before we hop back into the thick of it! Note that 151 marks the return to the storyline proper!

Dragon’s Bloodline

83… is big. Eek. Definitely want to chip away at the donation queue a bit this week!

 The Guild’s Cheat Receptionist

Finally going to be finishing chapter one haha. It’s been a long time coming!

Inside the Cave of Obscenity

Sorry for not finishing chapter 2 last/this week! As I said, didn’t want to just dis my friend and ignore him… ^^; If I have the time after finishing the chapters on this, I’ll be doing the final part in Chapter 2!

Schedule of the Week

Lost a fair bit of time to holiday drama/craze. I can’t say I’ve ever been much of a person to invest much into the holidays, but my family on the other hand… Well. I pretty much wasn’t “allowed” to get on the PC yesterday…

Lazy Dungeon Master

Over the past few weeks I’ve seen no small amount of disgruntlement towards the Saintess arc(s). I can’t say I don’t understand where it’s coming from, but I honestly liked the character and hope we see more of her again in the future!

Dragon’s Bloodline

I might wind up doing Chapter 84 as well, but 83 is pretty large and I might not have the chance to finish it!

 The Guild’s Cheat Receptionist

Made an error in what I said in last week’s schedule — Part 14 is the final part, not 13. I had apparently mislabeled a few filenames. My bad! Going to be attempting to get part 13 out at some point this week as I had wanted to get it out Sat/Sun sometime…

Inside the Cave of Obscenity

Two parts this week and we’ll close out chapter 2, though I might be splitting the final push to the end of the chapter into an extra part, making 3 Lazy Dungeon Master-sized parts rather than, say, 2 Dragon’s Bloodline-sized ones.

Schedule of the Week

Everyone enjoy the release flood(s) last week? A full fifteen chapters!!! Hopefully all of the next few weeks should be similar! At first I was considering just going back to 3 ch/week like I had over Summer vacation, but I decided that I’ll now be looking to clear the queue on everything and release a huge amount of Lazy Dungeon Master chapters every week until the next semester starts. I was able to release 5 chapters of Dragon’s Bloodline, four being donated chapters and one the week’s “guaranteed” chapter. Along with that, well, you saw haha. Lots of Lazy Dungeon Master~! This week should be similar, but focusing on Guild’s Cheat Receptionist instead! Note that I might replace a single LDM chapter with one for DB, but I haven’t decided for certain yet.

Trying my hardest to make the past few months up to everyone, particularly donators. I feel so bad for not doing those chapters for so long. I haven’t quite figured out how me spamming LDM is helping DB/GCR donators, though… … … orz

On a random note, I’ve went to look at the raws for this again recently. It’s still so hard for me to understand compared to LDM ._.

Lazy Dungeon Master

Man… it’s amusing how Feni has only ever been the target of desire from adventurers that have actually made it there lmao.

If you like then you shoulda put a Rin on it~

Dragon’s Bloodline

It… finally… happened!

フタのユリキタあああぁぁぁ…!

The Guild’s Cheat Receptionist

Part 13 will be the final one for GCR v2 ch1! Woo!

Inside the Cave of Obscenity

A single part of this will be coming out this week~! Might have two or three in next week’s lineup!

Schedule of the Week

As what should be obvious from last month’s tiny release volume, a lot of real life things have been keeping me away from translating as much as I want to. This month should be a little better, but I can’t guarantee my ability to work on the donation queue much until December hits.

  1. Lazy Dungeon Master — Chapter 122
  2. Dragon’s Bloodline — Chapter 76 (Maybe?)
  3. The Guild’s Cheat Receptionist 2 — Chapter 1 (Part 9) (Catch-up)
  4. Inside the Cave of Obscenity 2 — Chapter 1 (Part 3)

I have no idea if Cent is male or female. The raw says priest clothing rather than miko clothing, though, so I am currently assuming he is male.

Dragon’s Bloodline

It’s been a while since the most recent release, but it’ll have to wait a little longer. Although I might get the chapter out over the weekend, I’m not sure yet.

The Guild’s Cheat Receptionist

Inside the Cave of Obscenity

I-I want to finish the last part of chapter 1 before GCR, so… yeah… *cough*

Schedule of the Week

Dealing with lice is troublesome when you’re still broke from ‘required class materials’. So many random do-it-yourself methods! Though well, I actually like how the coconut oil made my hair so… lustrous. Red, floofy, lustrous hair. :3

Alright so at this point I’m really wanting to know more about Rin and why it decided to take over the place. Rin doesn’t seem to know it’s in a dungeon right now!?

(Using ‘it’ because not sure if he or she yet)

Dragon’s Bloodline

Thank you to the person who donated $70 to DB. I listed donations as NA because I was planning on emptying the queue before reopening it, but somewhere along the line I forgot to also remove the link… Well, I added 2 more chapters to the queue to match the donated amount. ^^

The Guild’s Cheat Receptionist

I’ll definitely make up for last week’s missing part release, just ran out of spare time dealing with mountains of homework & lice treatment!

Inside the Cave of Obscenity

I might, MIGHT be able to release a part for this this week. Absolutely no guarantees, though! So far it looks like I won’t have much homework this week, but I’m not 100% certain.

I’m so hoping that it’s going to somehow become Keima’s new Boss Monster… A sleepy ‘thing’ at the end of the Lazy Dungeon Master’s dungeon of trolling and trickery.

Dragon’s Bloodline

*whistles*

The Guild’s Cheat Receptionist

I think a few people should have some thoughts as to who the “person who lost his friends” is by now. Fufufu.

Inside the Cave of Obscenity

Holy crap people are loving this series. Top 100 on NU with only two chapters out! I don’t know yet when I’ll be able to work on it again, but I’m hoping to get at least something out in this next month. All that I can ask is that everyone be patient, I have a lot of other series I’m trying my best to keep active right now. This series in particular is a great way for me to change it up without burning myself out, but not something that I can handle continuously.

All of my releases for this series from here on will take the style of GCR’s, where I split the chapters into parts. Otherwise, I’m afraid I would very, very seldom complete a release.

Schedule of the Week

Second day of the new semester went weirdly. Have a group discussion class, three of the people in there like anime. All women, one’s >40 from the looks of it. Nothing against them at all; but wow, I really wasn’t expecting that. In this college down here in Sacramento I’ve only seen pretty creepy looking young guys that openly say they’re into anime. Honestly, it’s kind of cool to see Eastern anime(otaku-lite!) culture spreading into the west. Remember the days when you’d have to log onto something like a back-alley IRC to get Yu Yu Hakusho episodes?

Haha… —wait, I’m only 23! I shouldn’t be feeling nostalgic yet!?

(Reminder: back to two guaranteed/wk, starting with GCR)

Meat’s pretty… uh, pretty out there with her request, huh.

Dragon’s Bloodline

Yeah, definitely going to continue with the series as I have been. Going to leave its donation queue disabled until the time comes that I can actually work through it all.

The Guild’s Cheat Receptionist

That bout of ‘stuff’ last week threw me off pretty hard. Missed out on releasing anything on this again. This’ll be the first series to get a release this week!

Inside the Cave of Obscenity

From the looks of it, a lot of people are liking this series quite a lot! That makes me quite happy to be honest. In my view, the sentiments (and attention in general) given to ero in this community is heavily skewed towards the negative because the vast majority of it is translated by MTLers or people just looking to blast through chapters really fast, not paying attention to proper English flow.

Well, that said, because of various reasons, this series will not be updated as frequently as my other translations. It is for when I just need to work on something a bit different from the usual. I hope you all understand.

Extra, Extra!

First week of college is, despite its easier workload than the rest of the semester, hectic from getting everything organized… be it books and class’ syllabi or messing with the financial aid department. Not sure yet what I’m going to do for books. Two of my teachers are wanting physical copies only… orz

On to the topic of my Musings post: MoonBunnyCafe. I’m not sure what all I should say, so I’ll try and hold a pseudo-Q&A.

Q: What is MoonBunnyCafe(MBC)?
A: A website that allows translators to host (or dual host) their translations on their own terms, as well as allowing readers to read multiple series on the same website (easier tracking, consistent layouts between series) and find other novels to read.

Q: Why would you host/dual host/etc on it, Ziru?
A: My reasons are two-fold, and I’ll be really open here:

  • First, I’m always interested in getting more people to read these stories. I genuinely find them all interesting and love to talk to people about them. That’s why I started translating and very possibly why I haven’t pulled my hair out or ground my teeth to dust from irl drama.
  • Second, the ad revenue there actually exists, despite being just as unassuming as what I have here. To give some quick numbers (I really need to get around to making a post talking about this in general I think, I have some thoughts about it…), I have averaged around 1,300,000 views per month in the past 4 months. In those same months, I’ve been earning a mode value of ~$74. Note that I give the mode value due to some weird inconsistency that, again, I want to talk about later on. Quick math and that puts me at a little under $0.06/1k views. Basically… nothing. That number should be closer to $0.25/1k to be considered even ‘small’. MBC’s setup is much, much better for this. Honestly, I don’t know about what I can/can’t say, so I’ll wait till that said later post to give more info.

Q: Will you still be updating here?
A: Yes, definitely! I have absolutely no intention of making anything harder on you guys! The only thing that is going to change is that Novel Updates will be showing my posts on MBC rather than here. Nothing else will change!

Q: … Are you sure you aren’t just telling us to bow down and obey?
A: … … *whistles* … … No, but really. If you want to keep reading on this site, you can use any RSS feed reader or WordPress’ built-in follow system for real-time updates here rather than MBC if you want. I’ll even continue posting rants and stuff here, as well as polls related to series-related questions from time to time (those specifically would probably also be included in release posts there…).

 

All that I can say for now is that if this works out how it looks like it will, my life will suddenly become a whole lot easier starting around two months from now. What that means for me is less things to worry about, also with what that means for all of you readers: more chapters per week!

Well, I hope that helps clear things up. If you have any more questions, ask away below! I’ll be happy to answer.


Oh, and for those that read everything, thank you for sticking through it and putting up with my ramblings.
