    Jingai Musume is worth a reread, since the retranslated version is really entertaining (in a way that other guy's definitely wasn't).

    Yeah that's why I've been waiting for the starting chapters to be retranslated before reading JM. I really like the quality of cardboard's translation of sword while heard that the original translation of JM had some issues so am looking forward to binging 70+ chapters of it in the not too distant future.

    Thanks for the response.
    Well, I have to admit, this arc being boring is quite the solid argument. Although poker-face Fran is never boring. Time to attend the 3D world while I wait.:)

    The LN just got licensed, so the next chapter will be the last R.I.P.

    CardboardTL is translating the webnovel, not the light novel.

    I know, the LN getting licensed was enough for him to drop the WN.

    Web novel will not be affected by LN licensing. Unless the author removed and stop posting in his/her web novel site. Depends also on the translator it's up to them to stop translating.

    Nobody can stop them from stopping translating. Also using google translate you can read the webnovel in advanced.
    As most of the chapters are just fillers and predictable it matters not if there is a better translation. As I'm reading the mtl'd translation i skipped most of the part as it's filled with too much details of characters expressing thier admiration into something. There are only bits and pieces of details that need to remember like how the plot progress. Example one chapter can be explained in one paragraphs. There is also repeatable expression like how you express how one food is delicious.

    I'm reading both exchangely as i get bored sometimes of reading one novel.

    Well g0ddamnit.
    At least google Translate has stepped up their game as the translated text is readable (it could use some serious editing as most of the time I am guessing who is talking or what they are talking about). Guess it's still better than seeking incomplete spoilers in other forums though.

    Yeah there are google translation that most of the time are 80-90% readable. Especially if you already known how the story flow.
    Yeah there is still no official note from the translator. But it will be great if they didn't drop it immediately after the LN is out. As most of LN have differences than web novel.

    It's dropped.

    I can understand why the TL doesn't wish to risk a fight.

    As example, they released 4 volumes of Grimgar of Ashes and Fantasy in 2017 and 2018, they also did the same for Arifureta in the 2018. So I guess we could expect a similar number of volumes per year.
