    @Tony has to manually approve it so If he's busy it might take sometime but it won't take way too long. So don't worry

    Idk if theres any specific rules concerning this, but try to directly contact a mod if it's taking too long, they might simply have missed it

    Oof~
    I didn't know that OP didn't upload the official cover. I did upload an official cover for the novel I translate last year but it was pretty nerve-racking to me since that was my first time creating a novel page :blobsmilehappyeyes::blobsmilehappyeyes:

    Is this the official cover?

    [​IMG]

    It was rejected because it looked like fan art which isn't accepted here. If it's real, can you give me a link to where you found the cover? Thanks.

    Hey Tony, thanks for responding to this thread.

    The series is currently only on Kakuyomu so there is no cover from a physical print book or anything like that.

    However, I have made the image I submitted (the same one you pasted) together with the original author, so it is as official as it gets :)

    If you can please allow me to use that cover, I'd appreciate it.

    Thanks!

    Kakuyomu doesn't allow covers?

    You said it yourself, you made it. So it's a fan art. Unless you can get the author to use it too or claim that it's the 'official' cover, then your source would be verified. At this point, the only proof that it's the novel's cover is your words.

    It wouldn't make any sense to put this cover on Kakuyomu since that is a Japanese site for Japanese readers. The cover which I made in cooperation with the author is the official cover for the English translation.

    If you guys need some sort of 'proof' I am not making this up you can check his Twitter feed (@bacoyama) and see that he re-tweeted my post of this chapter on 6/12.

    Anyway, the image isn't a huge deal so if my image is still somehow not 'official' then I'll just forget about it :)

    the only potential future issues that i can think of now, is that the cover includes translator name. unless the translator (i'm speaking in general), has exclusivity to the rights of translating the series, the cover would have to be taken down or change, should anyone else re-translates the series in the future, either from beginning, or continuing somewhere in the middle.
