Legend Chapters 41+42
Hey everyone, double chapters today! There’s also some other stuff I want to say first though so the links are at the bottom.
Chapter 42 concludes the first story arc of Legend, I never actually thought I would get this far with translating when I first started so I’m actually quite happy with myself.
I may seem to be translating slowly but I’ve actually translated the equivalent word count of 2.5 light novels in under a year.
For the people who find that slow, I guess we’re just too used to people like Ren, who on that note, translated the equivalent of 37.7 light novels in a year during his time on Coiling Dragon😄.
So keep this in mind when you feel that translations are slow, we translators are all crazy, some of us are just a bit more crazy than others.
Next up is the story. I would like to explain a few things about the setting that some people may find strange at the moment. Rei himself effectively has the strength of a B rank adventurer. Together with Set, they have the power of a weaker A rank party. However, at this stage, Rei can’t actually get a B rank in the guild as he doesn’t have the social etiquette skills required to get that rank. Ranking up at his current rate is probably best for Rei, and storywise, he seems to understand that.
Secondly, in case none of you have guessed it, the next arc is called Rank Up Test. It’s a shorter, 17 chapter arc.
Thirdly, the Gallery has been updated for those interested, the light novel covers for Legend volumes 4 to 6 have been added.
Lastly, I looked up the summaries for the light novels on Japan Amazon to see which volumes correspond to which web novel arcs. By the looks of it, the Orc Village Raid and Rank Up Test arcs were combined into volume 1 while the third web novel arc, which is a similar length to the Orc Village Raid arc, was split into volumes 2 and 3.
P.S. I almost forgot, I enabled mobile mode for the site, I didn’t realise it wasn’t turned on, sorry to all those who read this on a mobile device previously.
