Here’s Chapter 181,
Mfw I almost forgot to post it.
I’ve made up for one of the chapters I missed out during my exams but I’m still one behind so I’ll try to get that out soon.
This chapter marks the start of the Magic Fever arc.
Here’s Chapter 180,
This wraps up the Gamelion arc.
Next up is the Magic Fever arc, where Rei takes a trip to the frontier city of Baar.
I wonder if any dodgy is going on there……
Here’s Chapter 179,
Sorry for the long wait, the good news is that I’m done with my exams and university work is finished for the year.
There’s been a couple of things which have made me push back this chapter release by a few days, so I’ll quickly go through them.
This is a double chapter release, so a second chapter will come out 30 minutes from this one.
I thought that I might as well wrap up the arc at once, which is why this chapter wasn’t released earlier.
A bunch of terms have changed, so I’ve been going through and changing all old chapters for consistency.
-All instances where Hasta’s family eatery is referred to as a restaurant has been changed to eatery.
-Excel from Scorching Wind has been renamed to Ecryll. Ecryll is actually the better translation of her name and I’m not sure why I didn’t pick it up when I first translated her name. I’ve decided to update it now before she reappears in future, which she will.
-All instances of Orc village have been changed to Orc settlement. I initially thought that the arc name ‘Orc Village Raid’ meant that the Orcs were doing the raiding. Of course that wasn’t the case, so Orc settlement is probably a more appropriate name than Orc village.
-All instances where Gilm is called a town have been updated to city. Just for consistency.
-All instances of recovery effects or magic have been changed to healing. Recovery magic is actually healing magic, so that has been changed for consistency.
-All LN images have now been placed into the appropriate chapters and the gallery has been updated with matching chapter numbers. Images are also larger in chapter and are of higher image quality. Any new images will now be added into the chapters as I go. For people reading on MBC, the gallery is only on my own site at silenttl.
Thank you all for your patience.
Here’s Chapter 178,
It’s a few minutes later because I woke up late this morning and didn’t manage to finish translating the chapter in time ahaha.
Minor change, which I will go back to correct, Hasta’s parents actually run an eatery rather than a restaurant.
They are both similar but an eatery is a more informal dining place.
Most of my uni assignments are done so I just have one more review paper to write and my exam and it will be summer break for me.
Here’s Chapter 177,
Still working my way through uni assignments at the moment.
I will eventually build my new desktop that I bought the parts for 3 weeks ago.
Random rambling, IG won the 2018 League Worlds Championship but I do kinda wish it wasn’t a 3-0.
The better team on the day won though so props to them.
For those worried that this would turn into a foodie story, don’t worry, Rei doesn’t actually know how to cook much.
If you haven’t noticed, he’s only ever roasted meat, everything else has been bought in the city before he heads out anywhere.
Lastly, the Gamelion arc ends at chapter 180.
The next arc starting at 181 is the Magic Fever arc, for those interested.
I have internet back so here’s Chapter 176
Still just one chapter this week because I’m still working though several assignments.
Ha, I thought it would be over with thesis, but who am I kidding.
Several things I actually want to go over in this chapter post as I’ve made a few website changes.
Firstly, I have come to the conclusion that maybe the Legend tab leading to the TOC wasn’t as intuitive as I thought it was.
Because of that, hovering over the Legend tab now shows both a TOC and Gallery link.
Secondly, Frozen has been kind enough to pass me the illustrations to all 12 currently published Legend LN volumes.
As a result, the Gallery page has now been updated with links to individual LN volume illustrations.
To avoid spoilers, the story arcs that each LN covers is listed under each LN illustrations link.
I am still in the process of adding illustrations to the matching chapter, so that may still take a week or two.
Also note that some illustrations refer to LN only events.
There isn’t a significant difference for the most part between the LN and WN, just a few minor changes such as Lenora guiding Rei to the library instead of Rei heading there himself and an extra scene where Milein meets Rei and Set en route to the Orc Village, which likely did happen according to WN events but was never mentioned.
On the note of the LN’s, the Gamelion arc and the arc that follows it is covered by volume 5 of the LN.
For anyone wondering, the Dark Elf in the volume 5 illustrations is the guildmaster for Gilm’s Adventurers Guild branch.
Lastly, although it won’t affect most of you readers, I plan to run through all previous chapters to edit them for consistency over the next few months.
Just thought I’d let you all know.
Here’s Chapter 175,
Had been hoping to push out an extra chapter this week but didn’t manage to.
Had relatives over for the past 4 days, which has been great but has also reduced the time I’ve had to work on things.
Also stayed up to watch the League Worlds Quarterfinals last night. IG 3-2 KT was surprising, but man G2 3-2 RNG, that was something to watch.
Here’s Chapter 174,
Thanks for all the well wishes these past two weeks.
My thesis is finally done and is ready for submission on Monday, mixed feelings of tiredness and relief ahaha.
Actually only started translating this chapter past midnight since I had to finalise a few things on my thesis document after proofreading, but I said that you would get a chapter this week so here it is.
After not translating for two weeks, it actually feels I take longer to translate a chapter, which is one of the reasons I’ve kept a steady release rate for so long.
I have heard though that there are some people who say that I will never finish this series at the rate I’m translating so I would like to reply to a few of their points.
Yes, I probably will never finish translating this series.
Unless I dedicate 5 years or so of doing nothing but translating, I will never finish this series.
That said, if you want to read the whole series, why not learn Japanese?
You will probably learn the language faster than I can translate and would have gained a valuable life skill at the end of it all.
For the people who want to read more but don’t want to learn the language and just leech off someone else’s translations, just remember your own position before you complain.
That said, most of you all a great people, so thanks again for all your support.
Pardon my rambling as it is nearly 2am as I’m writing this.
With my heavy workload recently, I actually almost forgot my own birthday last week, which was a bit awkward XD
