So, a few things before the chapter link.
Firstly, volume 7 of the Legend light novel will be released on 11th Nov and it’s cover has been added to the Gallery.
Just as a piece of information, it corresponds to chapter 347 or so.
Secondly, Hibat as been kind enough to link me the pictures from volume 1-3 of the light novels. They were hosted by Karoshi the Dimension Breaker on Facebook. I have added the relevant images to the corresponding chapters they appear in. Some images have not been added as they seem to show stuff that may have been rewritten slightly or added in. These pictures are currently in chapters only and will not appear in the Gallery until I figure out how to make that page less spoilerish. For those that want to go back and look, the chapters with pictures are 3, 5, 8, 12, 23, 26, 30, 37, 42, 46, 49, 54, 56, 63 and 65.
Thirdly, somewhere around this and the next few chapters actually marks the end of volume 2 of the light novels so that’s nice isn’t it? I know some of you feel that I will never finish translating this series but let me at least explain how much stuff there actually is. The entire Toaru Majutsu no Index series is currently at 38 volumes with 2.66 million words translated. The Legend web novel would be about 3 million words right now if it was all translated. Go figure.
Lastly, I still have two exams to go so I can’t guarantee chapters will come out the next two weeks but I’ll try my best. Chapter 70
Look how lucky you all are, I actually managed to finished the weekly chapter, Chapter 69.
Considering I have exams tomorrow, Monday in Australia, I’m amazed that I still managed to crank this out……
Anyhow, I hadn’t had much time to translate and edit the chapter, so if you find any mistakes, drop a comment.
I will get around to fixing it when I’m not dying from revision.
P.S. Anyone studying a Com Sci related course here? Semaphores and shared memory.
If you haven’t done them, I wish you the best of luck with the Linux command line.
Here’s Chapter 68
Here I was planning my day and I thought, 2 hours is enough to finish translating this chapter. But nooooo, 2 hours wasn’t enough, it just kept going and going and going and well enough ranting from me 😄
Just a few things I would like to talk about briefly.
Firstly is about why Rei isn’t spreading the Magic Beast Art as he is the inheritor of it.
Well there’s two simple reasons.
1. No one has enough magic power
2. He needs that magic circle that’s inside the house in the forest to use the Magic Beast Art
So technically speaking, he doesn’t know anyone else that could use it and even if they could he can’t teach it to them.
Second thing I want to talk about is that although Rei is calling Elena with honourifics, Elena isn’t calling Rei with honourifics.
Just thought that that was something interesting to mention.
Here’s Chapter 67
Pardon me if there are any errors in this chapter, I finished translating and editing it around midnight due to lack of time to translate recently.
Forgot about some pre practical work I was supposed to do during the week and ended up working into early morning to finish it the day before the practical.
Now my sleep pattern is messed up T.T
On a side note, when Duke Kerebel’s name first came up, I was almost persuaded by Ziru to call him Duke Kerbel.
Also, I want a pet Griffon…….
Here’s Chapter 66.
It’s been a rather busy week for me but I have to say, #ANXWIN 😄
That ANX vs ROX was one of the best games I’ve seen for a while and probably the best I’ll see this Worlds.
Unless ofc Likkrit gets his Brand in the quarterfinals.
Here’s Chapter 65
Feeling so tired right now DX……and daylight saving starts tomorrow so I lose an hour of sleep, halp!
*grumbles about having to sort through the inevitable comments saying Rei should kill them all*
P.S. Worlds anyone?
Here’s Chapter 64.
Just a two quick notes.
Firstly, if you feel that the past few chapters have been short, that’s because they’ve actually been shorter. The next few chapters, on the other hand, are longer than usual.
Secondly, while I will try to continue with one chapter a week, I might take a break for a week or two at the end of next month due to exams. Which funny enough, was the time I actually started translating last year because of *mumbles* procrastinating about exam revision *mumbles*. Just thought I’d give you all a heads up.
Here’s Chapter 63.
My mid semester break started yesterday but the release schedule probably won’t change.
I’ve spent the last few days crunching out consecutive assignments and it’s been tiring.
Third year university really starts to tighten the screws DX
