    If you have something to say about the current translators of Release that Witch, their quality, or the lackthereof, say it here.

    For anyone needing a TL;DR:

    Rox of Volare, the original translator of RtW, has been missing and unreachable since 07/13/2017.
    In his absence, three others have taken up the novel:

    • Seki, who began as an MTL poacher of the novel, but has since began to learn chinese as he translates, and gained a surprising amount of help and support from fans of the novel. He has promised to stick it out, despite the third in this list of three.
    • bcat, who.. honestly seems to have changed his mind after editing a chapter of Rox's original translation.
    • And Qidian International, which needs little introduction.
    -- Original post below --

    I feel so reluctant to read the mtl version...~

    You should try the last chapter (read some lines) to see if you like it or not...

    Seki is improving as the series goes....

    The sponsored chapters of RTW by volarenovels is ending soon...qidian hasnt given the community any indication to release RTW in English unless they got roxerer bounded.^_^

    We got our RTW itch being done by Seki of sekitranslation and Kurisu of volarenovels...

    Hopefully as Seki improves he can be recognized by NU and be counted...

    If you need some help...just pm..^_^

    Last Volare chapter is out. Can the other translator start putting his chapter up on NU now? Id really hate to see this series die because people are hesitant to read MTLd chapters. The quality is very good for MTL, in my opinion.

    Chapter 344. It's announced as the final chapter from Volare.
    ( until Rox return they say, but God knows when Rox will be back )

    So I wonder what's NU gonna do? Keep it that way at chapter 344?
    Make the update using Suki's translation instead?
    ---
    There's a lot of people there now.
    Just compare the comments on Volare's RtW vs Suki's RtW
    People like it there and looks like they are accustomed to it.
    ---

    So what's NU gonna do?

    The reason I bring this up is that stupid(on second thought, maybe not so) 3 months rule, you know what.
