Legend Chapter 147

Here’s Chapter 147,

Sorry for the late chapter, finally got the page editor to work once and quickly filled everything in while it was still working.

Things are ramping up for me, gave my thesis proposal presentation last week and have an exam for another topic tomorrow.

It’s been an interesting week with web novels as well, RWX finished translating Desolate Era, which I have also finished reading.

I have been thinking about this for a while, but just wondered if you readers have any thoughts about it.
I want to pick up a second series. I know this sounds stupid considering how big Legend is already, but I’ll explain.
Basically, I don’t want to be a translator that never finishes a series, I would feel bad about that.
So I’m thinking of picking up a short completed series, 10-30 chapters maybe, and not long chapters either.
But then again, with all RL work atm, chances are that’s something that won’t be happening ahahah.

    • That is something I had actually considered ahaha, But I’m not sure if people would be interested in teasers like that or not.

  5. May I suggested, “Bijo to Kenja to Majin no Ken”? Total of 88 chapters plus 20 or so side chapters.

    Thanks for the treat.

  6. This has been on dragging for a while to just a mere noble pig sh*t.
    Complete unnecessary conduct. Yeah surely he’s destined to pass with this crappy underrated annoying nobles.
    But come on when this sh*tty arc gonna end for just one crappy noble. He was already given permission and he’s thinking naive. He should kill the noble straight away even without the help of that Galahat fella.

      Right. People like him and Goblin drool are normally done away with in a chapter or two for a reason.

    Thanks for the chap~
    Hm, taking into consideration, that catching up to the current chapter will take Silent-san ~26 years, I’d say that taking up another novel won’t make a difference. For the readers at least.
    About recommendations, the problem with <30 chap series is that translators usually finish them and english-only readers would have a hard time recommending anything else than unfinished titles, but if you want to take a shot at them you can try Akuyaku Reijo Ni Koi Wo Shite, it has a pretty high score on NU and 124 chapters with ~50 untranslated.

      This one is still being translated. Take a good look at their site. They just stopped updating it on NU.

    Well worst case option there is the synopsis route if you’re willing to go there. Also good luck with your exams.
    Thanks for the chapter

    If you want to go for novels that are extremely short, then you can try translating the works of Mishima Yomu sensei, the author of Sevens and Dragoon. He has written several short novels.

    • Thanks, I’ll take a look at his works.

      • Sevens & Dragoon are some of my favourites. Both had good comedy & action. The harem comedy was good bc the MCs weren’t (completely) dense but had actual political reasons that interposed between them & choosing.
        In Sevens the wives were all more terrifying than the house Heads. Sweet murderous yanderes. Lmao
        Any novels by Mishima Yomu-sama, I’d definetdefinitely want to read.

        Can understand the brain drain of Legend taking 5-6 chapters just to get a message out of a side character. This arc is reeaaaallly dragging on.
        May have to pause reading & wait to binge when it’s finally wrapping up. Pff.
        Thanks for your efforts

    Why not. I can only imagine your despair when it comes to Legend. Honestly, I won’t even mind you dropping it altogether and moving on something more meaningful. There’s just too much filler and talking about pointless crap. Chapter 147 can be summarized in a single sentence: “Rei found some free weapons, but Murt was not too happy about this”.

    It’s not a bad series to read on a daily basis, but all things considered, 1 chapter per week is too slow to give it any justice.

    Thanks for chapter.

    But this Arc is really is just dragging it should have ended with him killing the Noble when they first met. I don’t feel any purpose for what the MC is doing I don’t trust his two new companions or care for them, kinda wish they’d go away already the harpy’s are done with.

    If you’re looking to pick up another story for a change of pace, if you fear you’d otherwise get bored with Legend, then go ahead, that’s probably wise. Otherwise, I’d personally, as a reader, prefer if you sped up your pace with Legend, if you have the extra time in your hands. I mean, Legend is basically filler from around ch 100 to around ch 250, so I’m anxious to get it over with. Although I’ve already read 500+ chapters of the raws, a proper translation is always a greater pleasure.

    • I expected as much, but as you said, it’s quite tiring to continuously translate chapters of Legend as not much seems to be happening. I’m usually bombed out after one chapter to try for a second.

        I totally understand. Legend is very long-winded in its own way… I understand that it’d be pretty unrealistic if exciting stuff happened to the MC all the time, but the author just doesn’t seem to grasp the idea that sometimes it’s better to skip or explain very briefly some less important details. After a while the material stripping scenes get really repetitive. Not to mention the scene that ALWAYS repeats itself whenever the MC meets a new person and they are shocked to discover his strength/rank.

        I like this story, I really do, but it sure has some glaring flaws that you have to be really patient to overlook. -_-‘
