    I'm not sure if this will get locked, as the translator isn't translating it anymore (explicitly stated) but the group is asking for a new translator.
    Name: I Never Run Out of Mana

    NU Link (if avaliable): NU Link
    Why It Should Get Picked Up: I think there's a lack of modern invaded worlds (where dungeons spawn), only 4-5 off the top of my head including this one. It also already has a fairly large following being on 2,177 reading lists with a 4.1 score over 96 votes.
    As for whether it's a good story, I can't say. I like it and the above seems to indicate a fair few other people are interested, but the previous translator did drop it so it might drop in quality later.
    Description: Have you ever seen a hunter spamming infinite meteors?

    That’s me.

    It is now 40 years after monsters started appearing in the world and with it, Awakened. Min-Cheol feels that life is unfair, comparing his life to the ones which the Awakened lead. After a scuffle with one of the Awakened, he gains an ability which allows him to have infinite mana.

    Aahh...I thought there was a flag triggered that made you stopped. So it was project management problem?

    Hoping this would get picked up soon~

    No. I just lost interest in it, then I had exams. Nothing to do with project management.

    50-150 maybe. then more once im paid. after looking at a few raw chapters, it feels like each chp would be worth about 30 or so, baring the longer ones.

    Can someone @ me if this gets picked up? (or reply/like this post or message me or whatever) I was just about to read the first chapter when I realized it had been dropped.

    Raw Link: http://novel.munpia.com/68308
    NU Link (if avaliable): http://www.novelupdates.com/series/i-never-run-out-of-mana/
    Why It Should Get Picked Up:
    When a character in this story 'Awakens' to their skills they gain a 'unique Attribute' and while the MC has a broken unique skill others could have some unique skills just as broken. The dungeon hunting part is likely to be pretty bland however if the MC ends up having to fight other people in later chapters this story could get exciting...
    Description (if you can find one):
    Have you ever seen a hunter spamming infinite meteors?

    That's me.



    It has been 40 years since monsters started appearing in the world and with it, Awakened, the ones born to fight them. Min-Cheol feels that world is unfair, comparing his life to the lives that the Awakened lead. After an argument with one of the Awakened, he gains an ability which allows him to have infinite mana.

    My description:
    Bullied breadshuttle Min-Cheol and his mother are heavily in debt to the local gang, after being beaten one day in class he 'Awakens' to the world of monsters and dungeons with a very special unique Attribute: 'Unlimited mana'.

    Modern setting, Dungeons, Rankings, Money focused, levels, Skill books.

    Closest comparisons: Evolution theory of the hunter, Seoul station necromancer.

    Problems:
    Dungeon parts are probably going to be boring.
    Will probably only pick up later into the story.
    Possibility of MC being way too OP with no need for thought or skill.
    Possibility of author missing out the chance to use other unique attributes to challenge the MC.
    Possibly boring to translate? Previous translator got bored.

    Opinion: I don't really think asking just anyone to pick it up would be okay because it would as I said before be quite boring and I think it will likely have to be a labor of love for the most part where you have to get through the bad to get to the good bits... and the bad bits are probably going to be quite long...

    One thing I forgot to put is that the translator got bored of it, this could be because of a bad writing? I'm not sure but the translation was great I enjoyed it too :D.

    It is a good novel, but the opening to this type of novel will always be at least a bit interesting.
    I'm worried that it will get repetitive with the dungeons, the only solution I got is the unique attributes the author talked about literally only reveled shitty attributes others have.
