    Raws V1-V3: mediafire dot com/folder/ab43ib90i7q3o/Nishino

    Last translated: V1 Chapter 5 Part 2

    Translator:
    MaoTl
    The translator just said is ok with someone else continuing the translation because he is not sure if he is going to keep doing it himself

    Why It Should Get Picked Up: It has a realistic premise spiced up with superpowers, is very fresh compared with other novels on this site but still firmly among the style of teenagers and superpowers, a totally new flavor to the food we are used to

    Description:
    Nishino is a superpowered hitman highschooler who one day realizes he is wasting his youth by being a loner and decides to put the effort to come out of his shell, to socialize, to have friends, to get a cute girlfriend and enjoy the springtime of youth, but his reputation, his plain face and his habits will make it harder than expected

    The great point of this novel is the introspection, the motivations and mental processes of the characters are described, analyzed and then they have an effect on how the characters interact with each others, is like a story of mindgames but instead of plotting a murder or a theft they are plotting getting close to a classmate or how to make themselves look better in front of others

    About the loli in the cover:

    There is a loli whom everybody likes and fawns over except for the MC as he thinks she is getting closer to him in an effort to secure his power for the hitman jobs as she is also a hitman, and so far that seems to be the case, but she also seems to have a nice side as she gives the MC space on her social circle, which he later appreciates as it gives him more chances to make friends

    In a sense is an inversion of a traditional trope, instead of the MC meeting a pretty girl who introduces him to the world of superpowers here the MC is already part of the super powered world and the pretty girl introduces him to the world of highschool socialization

    As the MC is already OP the fights with criminals are spare change and his real problems are things like bullying, integrating with the other students, becoming attractive to girls and his overall growth as a person

    * * * * *​

    I just realized there was already another thread about picking up this story but this is a thread to re-picking it up so i will let it be (and i already finished making the thread so f**k it), if a mod feels like fusing them then just do it, but my description is more interesting which increases the chances of someone picking it up

    Why doesnt the translator want to continue?

    Is it not to their taste, or is their life getting busy?
