    I found an old backup of the site when it first started so I decided to upload it to a temporary website: http://tbtnu.club/. If you're curious about how NU looked two years ago, you should check it out.

    The layout is similar but it's missing a lot of features. It was pretty much an empty website back then. Users weren't even able to help with adding releases or help with editing the novel information either. There's also no reading list + a ton of other features.

    You can make an account with the site but there's really nothing you can do with an account back then. There is no confirmation so you are free to use a fake email if you wish. The site (http://tbtnu.club/) will be deleted in a few days so enjoy it while you can.

    Thank you to everyone that has helped NU in one way or another!

    Hard work really pays off, right?! :blobtriumph:

    I feel there will be a sudden influx of views on the chapters released on June of 2015

    I remember pika cranking out those ccm chapters back then. I enjoyed that series quite a bit at the start. Magical liposuction was a new one. Unfortunately I kinda lost interest as the story went on v.v

    Was also back when I didn't even have to bother with a reading list so I didn't sign up xD. How the times have changed.

    Only 3 pages of releases? Wow. 1818 now.

    Surprisingly the looks haven't changed too much, but I like how functional it's always been.

    Sigh ISSTH is only at chapter 36, who knows how long will I have to wait until the translation is over... How much I wish I could teleport in the future to find the translation already finished!

    Damn, when Coiling Dragon was still translating and Martial God Asura and Against the Gods were considered good. Those were the days...
