    Well, he might not be a wimpy MC but since it somehow ended up being a high school story it sounds kind of terrible regardless.

    If you say Highschool of the Dead is a terrible story, then yes, this title is terrible.

    This sounds interesting, looking forward to read it if it gets translated.
    Indeed, I have too many Japanese novels because of their beta MC. Its not just that many MC are wimpy, its that most MC end up taking passive stand. They are OP yet they act like someone underpowered. Also, in many i get bored by excessive iternal monologue.

    Well, regardless I'm not saying a story that deals with high school can't be good. It's just that most I've read aren't. I avoid school life tags as much as I avoid any other tag.

    No, no game elements at all. This story deals in realistic portrayals of a zombie apocalypse from the eyes of high school boys and girls.

    Japanese have different sentence structure from English. So literal translation are most often incorrect in its nuance and syntax.

    EDIT: An alternate title could be, "Surviving the end of the world" but I didn't choose this because it removes and changes several words.

    Doesn't seem like anyone else is taking it. But have a read through for the first chapter first. If you think you can do it, then go ahead, but do tell us so that we don't get double translation or something.

    Well, considering that xCalibur disappeared, anyone else want to take over? I assure you, it's an easy story. and it's complete at 12 chapters, I think. Avoid machine translating it, please. Someone ran the story through GT and came out with something completely NOT what the story said.

    @Kitsunebi you still want it?

    I'd like to warn anyone who would TL this.
    Each chapter has about 600-800 sentences. Chapter 2 have exactly 784 sentences (counted using Translation Assistant Tool)

    but yeah the sentences were easy

    Yup, still interested if xCalibur dropped it.
