Here’s Chapter 76
Was going to translate more this week but I got asked to help co-write a technical paper so the past few days have been busy.
Also, the next chapter is due……Christmas day……hmmm……well we’ll see 😄
Whew, here’s Chapter 75
I should be back home by the time this is released.
However at point I am writing this, I am in Singapore airport where I managed to translated the remaining 40% or so of the chapter while waiting for my connecting flight.
It’s been a busy three weeks for me but stuff should be back to normal, after I recover from my messed up sleep schedule of course XD.
I woke up at 4:30 this morning so I’m pretty tired right now, drop a comment if you see any mistakes.
Here’s the last chapter I translated before leaving for my trip, Chapter 74.
On a side note, this post and the last 2 were all scheduled to be released before I even left for my trip XD.
EDIT: MBC seems to be having some server issues right now so if you can’t access the MBC chapter page, you can access the chapter from the ToC here, https://silenttl.wordpress.com/legend/
Considering all I said last week, things aren’t quite that bad for you all.
Luckily, I actually managed to translate a few more chapters before I left.
I spent the last week in Thailand, so plenty of spicy food and beer.
Speaking of beer, I’ve drank more beer in the last week than I have in the rest of my life before last week XD.
Here’s Chapter 73
EDIT: Side note, I’m now in Malaysia for a few days visiting friends. Next post should be from HK.
Hi everyone, so I’d thought I’d mention this first but by the time this chapter is released, I will actually be on a plane to Singapore XD.
Basically, I will be heading around Singapore, Bangkok, Kualar Lumpur and Hong Kong for the next 20 days.
This means that I have absolutely no idea if I will have any time to translate or have the internet to post chapters, so bear with me for the next 4 weeks.
Aside from that, I should have corrected the timezone releases so my site and MBC should now release at the same time.
However, if there are any issues, it may take me a day or two before I can fix them, same approving new comments.
So here’s Chapter 72
Here’s Chapter 71.
I’ve had 3 large internet outages in the past week and I’m having to post this chapter from mobile net.
*grumbles about useless ISP, how can you have 3 major failures on the same hardware in one week*
Anyhow, still have one more exam to go on Wednesday so things should slow down for me after that.
P.S. Fun fact, the day after my exams will be one year since I released the first translated chapter of Legend 😄
EDIT: It looks like the MBC page didn’t post, my site and MBC run on two different time zones for scheduling so I suspect there may have been a DST change that desynced the releases. My site runs on GMT which is why there no change for that, MBC runs on either -4 or -5 which may have caused an issue, sorry for the confusion.
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…….
