    I'm just worried if this new tl stops translating the original TL will vanish again. Just read his note in his translation and he says he isn't working with them. Well hopefully this competition will get this novel out of the 10's of chapters translated.

    shrugs. According to End, lightnovelsbastion asked him, he said no and that he'd be back in janurary, and they released anyways and asked him to join them and to host his chapters on their site. >_> pretty annoying practices imo.

    My opinion may be significantly different if he left a note that he was going on hiatus. I looked around his site some but wasn't finding it. If he left such a note and I just happened to not see it my apologies.

    Also when the chapters are still in the 1-20 range, it doesn't really feel like there's much ownership to me, especially if a TL leaves without notice for months. I mean if someone was trying to poach a translation while the translator was actively putting out new stuff in the very beginning I would be upset, but if its stalling a lot I feel a little differently. I was reading another novel that I was really enjoying and the TL stopped translating very early on. Waiting 3 months for a novel that was on chapter 9 to be picked up by someone else was very frustrating when it seemed like the TL just wasn't interested, but hadn't said they were dropping it. Then again no one has picked it up since then so I guess it didn't really matter...

    I'm more than happy to wait if I know the tl has put a lot of work into something already, like with Demon's Diary or a few others when the tl had to take care of real life issues, or if a notice is left so the readers know whats going on.

    If the original translator for Memorize wants to translate the series fully I'll be happy to support him.

    Chapter 13 contained that note. Which led me to believe it would be three weeks and not 8 weeks. The translator did explain a bit more in the recent chapter 17 that it was until the degree finished, which it seems to have done now?

    I don't really care about translator/group drama myself. I follow whoever does the best quality/time ratio releases. Some releases are very bad (not for this novel though) which means the other one wins automatically since I could just read Google or Bing translations otherwise. A site like NU does promote following the fastest group as I use it.

    As for the actual series. Interesting to see if the kills all the deadmen after his group is out sight and hearing. He has exuded the calm of somebody that can do that this entire time.

    Well if he left a note then I think he deserves the 3 months. However how much longer will he have to be 24/7ing for that degree?

    To clarify, I asked if he was still going to work on it. His reply was "yes rl is hammering me right now. Need to finish my degree , looking for job. Time is getting limited as I grow older." Nothing about coming back in January and such.

    I replied telling him we already have 3 chapters translated, what do you wanna do and then we received no reply for almost up to four days, so we released anyway and sent an email asking for permission to host his chapters and that were determined and eager to fully translate the novel. One of the reasons why we released chapters 14-16 was because we linked our releases to the author, to show him our fan-translations of his work and also to prove that there is an English following for it.


    After that End fairly replied saying he's upset etc.

    I kindly ask him why not work together if you have less time now. i stated to him that we're not trying to kick him out of tling memorize but to work together.

    if his goal was to really translate the novel to completion, I don't see why he would reject our proposal (though I understand he was upset at the time ). We could of done something like that gensou novel where yukkuri? And larvyde splits chapters. We just wanted permission to get his first 13 chapters instead of wasting time redoing them.

    it's not realistic for him to finish translating 1000 chapters all by himself with less time now. We received a reply again about memorize being his baby or something.
    .

    After this I stated ok I get you're upset, we're sorry but I will post the remaining edited and translated chapters and will respectfully hold our translations for now( we actually have translated up to chapter 22 but have stopped since) as we want to get the author's blessing regardless whether we continue or drop it.

    He then continues cheeky and insults us by claiming our chapter 14 was MTL/GT when his was identical to it.

    So I told him, we are waiting on the authors reply, we haven't said anything about officially dropping the project.

    I don't know where he pulled this fact about him telling us he'll be back in January bs camefrom.

    From my point of view, sure i admit, what we did was a slight dick move for not waiting on the 3 month etiquette but with the facts that the novel has 1000 chapters and that he has less time now I'd say isn't he being selfish? It's not his own work and he himself knows that he wont be able to commit as much time as before. It's not like he picked it up as it was recently published. If he really continued in Jan, we would of hit the 3 month thingy anyway. His track record on any doesn't seem very promising either.

    He's done 13 chapters( thank you) but i don't see why it is wrong for us wanting to continue translating a story for the community that we too enjoy. If we have to then we will redo the initial chapters. Memorize is one of the most top read novels on joara, it is not a hidden gem or anything like that. We waited two months+ and I think that's fair.

    I just wanted to share my side instead of the public only getting his version. This will probably the only reply on the matter from us. Anyhow, I don't want things to remain unhealthy, since MEM is getting love, we are officially putting this project on hold/hiatus/break.

    Edit: On another note, we have wakened the TLor! TIme for the readers who follow the series to enjoy! :)

    I hope that the translators can clear up the misunderstandings between. Both of you are doing this community a great favor in translating and as a selfish leecher, please don't quit this work.

    c1: He only asked to rewind time, not to keep his memories.

    c4: Spell Sniper would definitely have been the better choice. After all, you can only block the attacks you see with Sword Specialist. Of course, it would also have been much more boring to read.

    c5: If all he needed to improve his odds were somewhat higher stats, then he should have let her hang onto it until he had some decent gear. With his knowledge, getting such gear shouldn't be a problem and there's no point in gambling his life on such low odds, even with his massively increased luck. Since he's the MC, it wouldn't really matter if there was a less than 1% chance, but I truly hate it when authors embrace that fact and have MC's act like reckless morons for no real reason.

    c8: So the MC is an unrepentant rapist? Right I'm out.

    Just out of curiosity, have you read the raws or...? Because it feels like we're reading different novels.

    Think it was referral to the following from c8. It hints that he does rape people but does not state it one way or another. The first time I read it I didn't even care about what things where listed since the previous sentence stated when necessary.

    So why did you start to care about it now then? You must have received some additional information at some point.

    Still don't care about it. Just couldn't recall it at all previously and looked it up based on what jacobpaige said and you saying it sounded like a different novel which made me check.

    The way it was worded in the chapter made it seem like MC did those things but to me it seems more like him stating what was the norm in that place he was thinking not what he did himself

    Yeah it didn't hint that he did ALL of those things but that they are all happening and everyone has to constantly live with that danger. So no it doesn't state he rapes people but he for sure murdered many and killed even more (difference being forced to or just in the wars they talked about). He should have at least stolen too based on his personality.

    Seeing strange comments about people wondering why he doesn't provide them with everything when he is looking for a group of people who can survive in Hall Plain and be trustworthy. The only person who has such a high talent that begs him to make sure she survives is An-Sol and no one else.

    One thing I don't get is why did she die in the original timeline if she had a luck of 100?

    Maybe luck steered her away from an encounter that would kill her but she ignored it and forcibly went anyway. She seemed to be more of a support character so she could likely die if she ends up at the wrong place.

    Do we know she has a luck of 100? As I recall it that was speculation.

    No it was written in chapter 8: An-Sol: [Strength 8] [Resistance 17] [Agility 15] [Vitality 21] [Magic Power 75] [Luck 100]

    Seems weird if that's how luck works. It should be called intuition in that case.

    Is 100 the max value?

    I consider luck to be something like deciding to go to a place she would die. Encountering a person that she wants to go with to some other place with or tripping into a river and arriving too late. Things that can be forced past.

    In combat it would be things like tripping, the opponent sneezing or the wind direction changing. Things that help a lot but won't make her immortal, just give her more chances. Imagine an Armageddon like spell that covers a 1x1km area. If she is in it she could maybe live by stumbling onto a small cave to hide in but if there is nothing to do and she actually arrived in the area she would die. Assuming the opponent has high enough luck, magic etc to actually cast the spell against the luck.
