    You think we're hiding them from you? :blobrofl:

    The last translator got DMCA'd and no one else has taken up the project yet. Just gotta wait.

    Obviously, otherwise there would be more. Because the translators are machines that automatically fulfill our desires of complete and immediate translations of all novels:blobcatcop::blobbunny:

    The rumor is that it was being held hostage by a previous translator
    Whenever anyone else picks it up, they receive threats and DMCA.
    The novel seems to be also very unlucky, most translators who have picked this up seem to be tools that refuse to pass the torch when they are obviously incapable of continuing.
    Then again, you need to have delusions of grandeur to be a translator sometimes.
    Well, you didn't hear it from me. :blobwhistle:

    I loved this novel. I really wished it could've had its regular releases during the baka-tsuki Era. But this story while it is great, was plagued with external factors that caused it to be dropped many times.

    Oh is woe, I recall a spoiler chapter loliquent did
    where Hiiro and Eveam shared a special moment, before he went off to fight the big bad. And the Evila generals sent him off claiming him to be their races True Hero.

    This was also one of those collab novels of that Era, which had a fast release rate. Just choppy quality, since it was shared between 3+ Translator at that time.

    Reader backlash and drama storm swept this project, and more, well can't forget the DMCA purges....*sigh* recalling the translating History for this project makes me a little sad.

    But I'm hoping for the day it has a full English release. And that's when I'll return to reading.

    C : which novel has the highest count of translator's claw mark ~goki?
    S : no easy way to check it, but probably Konjiki (WN) ~nugi

    The novel, the translators, the readers everyone related to the novel are unlucky=_=

    There are hardly anyone who would hate this novel...
    Are you talking about the fight with beastmen? Well this was one of the best moment especially when mc defeats the three best beast warriors in less than a minute

    No... My memory is slightly hazy, but it was a special translation, far from the current translations back in 2015. I believe the chapter was around 650+. Loliquent had it as either a new year special spoiler or valentines one.
    Basically it was when Eveam had been mind-controlled and harmed Hiiro. Eveam couldn't really forgive herself for harming someone she loved. Hiiro tried to appease her but was recanted to stay away. Only being able to speak to her from a distance.

    Hiiro cared for Eveam, even though she had been used against him. He just considered the situation as something he overlooked and slightly regretted not taking actions to prevent such a thing.

    But he then pushed the boundaries of that distance until he was within arms reach. Until she wished for Hiiro to hug her.

    Hiiro then said his piece that he was going up against the one manipulating everyone (God?). And Eveam was slightly worried for him, saying her deepest wish was for him to stay alive and return to her safely.

    Drifting back after embracing Eveam, and I think floating away he sees the Evila Generals, and they send him off with their well wishes. And one makes the claim that Hiiro is really the Evila's one true Hero.

    It was a really well translated piece, the romance and dialogue was spot on. It was also one of the reasons I was wishing for translations to reach 600+.

    During 2015 there were almost daily if not weekly updates because of translator collabs, so I presumed that in the near future like maybe in 2016 I could read those 600+ chapters. But my dreams were far from that reality.

    Damn after reading the spoiler even I feel like reading more of these chapters... Why TF do this series have to get DCMA'd :'(

    Even if you say romance, I don't think hiiro thinks like that since he thinks all the lolis around him thinks him like a big bro :O
