Here’s Chapter 199,
Sorry for the late post, I was almost done with everything when I got called away to help with some garden work which ended up delaying this post.
Thanks to everyone who voted or commented on last weeks post.
A large majority of you want me to continue working on the webnovel so I’ll be continuing down this long road.
You’ve all given me a bit more motivation to continue working on the WN, so enjoy the trip ahaha.
One of the reasons I had suggested the LN was because it is comparatively easier to catch up to it compared to the WN but that comes with its own difficulties as well.
Unfortunately Set and Rei technically don’t get any new skills this chapter.
But they are well on their way to Gilm and chapter 200 plus the end of the arc is near.
Here’s Chapter 198,
Rei finally leaves Baar and begins the journey back to Gilm.
Apologies that this chapter came out slightly late, there were a few things I was setting up which I will talk about.
So a lot of you have probably realised by now, but practically speaking, I stand effectively 0% chance of ever catching up with the current chapter of the Legend webnovel that the author has written up to.
I’m enjoying translation still, but the fact that I will never catch up has sapped a bit away of my motivation.
I’m not at the point where I can’t stand the story, because I would just drop if that were the case, but it does feels like I’m trying to do the impossible.
I’ve talked about it with a few other translators and they’ve given me some suggestions which I’m going to put up on a poll with a link below.
If most of you don’t mind that I will probably never finish the series, I don’t mind continuing to translate the webnovel either.
Another option is that I can start to translate the light novel version instead.
If this is the case, I would likely translate from volume 1 again, but I think it would be worth starting from the beginning as the light novels are more polished and have some slight story differences.
A third option is that I drop Legend and work on some other series that is slightly more manageable.
Any decision I make will likely be at the end of an WN arc, and as this arc ends at chapter 201, I thought it would be an appropriate time to say this.
I will continue to link the poll until the release of the last chapter of the arc.
Here’s Chapter 197,
So, what’s Ara doing here and why was Soleil not in the city during all this anyway?
Just a heads up in case anyone missed it, but this arc ends at Chapter 201.
Here’s Chapter 196,
This makes up for the chapter I missed last week.
Now I won’t have sleepless nights about how I don’t average a chapter a week. (jk)
So it turns out Soleil isn’t a bad guy, he’s just……single minded and maybe slightly difficult to deal with.
Further info for people who might be confused at how people see Rei.
People who can’t sense magic power see Rei as just an ordinary person.
People who can sense magic can feel that Rei has a lot of magic power.
People like Runo, who have special eyes, can see a visual manifestation of how much magic power Rei has.
That aside, I go back to uni this week.
It’s my last semester so going for the final stretch.
After that, who knows, maybe I’ll start working full time, maybe I’ll study further into a PhD or maybe I’ll take a break to consider what I really want to do.
That said, thinking of being called Doctor does put a smile on my face.
Here’s Chapter 195,
Back from my trip to HK.
It was a busy week, but I’m back and with a haul of good stuff.
A lot of snacks and food aside, I got myself a new headset with a functional microphone, the lack of which has been bugging me for a while.
One chapter for now, I’m working on a second one which should be out in a few hours.
We get our first introduction to the lord of Baar.
Is he a good guy? Is he a bad guy? Or is he something else?
Find out in the next chapter! (196 that is)
Here’s Chapter 194,
Feeling pretty good at the moment, I passed my driving test last Thursday which really puts a load off my mind.
Never did like exams and tests ahaha.
Just a quick update, I’ll be heading over to HK to visit relatives for a week starting next Thursday so I don’t know at this point whether I’ll have the time to translate the next chapter then.
Regardless, I’ll still try to get it out though.
Here’s Chapter 193,
How’s everyone doing?
Been feeling super lethargic over the past week, can’t seem to work up the motivation to do anything, which really sucks.
Maybe it’s because I have my driving test coming up in a few days, and like most exams, I’m not looking forward to it ahaha.
Here’s Chapter 192,
Apologies for the late chapter.
Chapter are usually posted Sunday 10:30am my time with the actual translation done the night before.
Unfortunately for me, I had only translated half the chapter when I started to watch the LCK Griffin vs Sandbox match last night.
That ended up going to three games and finished around midnight.
At that point my brain decided it was a good idea to binge read the entirety Really, Really Miss You, which was a good read but meant that I didn’t sleep until 2:30 in the morning.
The result was waking up at 9:50 with half a chapter left to translate and feeling super sleepy XD.
