    No it's just standard MTL, the articulationg of the language is not quite there, unless it gets better after the 350th chapter, and by better I mean a lot.

    Edit: changed my message from quite condescending, to less so.

    It does improve in quality. The first 10-20 chapters have some messy parts, but i still found it very readable compared to MTL ive seen in the past. I think you are just expecting too much.

    Maybe I am, but then again people did advertise it as "being as good as the volare translation" which honestly according to what I've seen, it's not even close to.

    Since nobody's been able to get in touch with Roxerer (the translator), there's no way to say for sure if he (as the individual in charge of the project) has dropped the novel. Nor can anyone really stand in to speak up in his place. (Thus, "hiatus" versus "dropped.")

    But volare as a whole (the website currently hosting Rox's translations) will not be publishing further translations of RtW on its site without settling its authorizations. In other words, if Roxerer does return and wants to continue with RtW, he'd probably host future releases on his own website.

    As NU has already decided to link the other TLer's site for RtW's continuation, this should solve most of the OP's current issues regarding release locations.

    That's one way to say it, I could also say that they don't form the sentences properly, or articulate properly.
    But that was what my brain first came up with when I wrote the other one, I can though see that it's quite pretentious when I look back at it, please do ignore that horrible condescending sentence....

    not quite. in current case, the translator's group has announced the hiatus, with undetermined length of time. therefore it does not fall under the usual practice of waiting (m.i.a case).

    please be noted that NU does not operate on the same set of rule as NUF. on NU, while we do have some basic guideline, we usually decide it case by case basis. and in RtW's (current) case, the mods's consensus is to accept later chapters by next translator group, once volare finished the backlog, and hiatus is announced.

    also, once we start accepting the other group release, we will continue do so, even if original translator resumes. (that means there will be two release group). it is not first time such thing happens, nor is it second.

    Finally, there are no such 3 months rule. it is just common courtesy, as a sign of respect towards translators, (in current case, rox/volare). and it is mostly being practiced only in pickup request section on NUF, not anywhere else, and most certainly not NU.

    +1

    thank you @Ruyi for clarifying.

    You are not wrong. The translation is not perfect. The point is that its still very easy to read, and if any of the wording irks you, you can just correct it. Overall its high enough quality that id like the translator to take over from Volare if Roxerer has no intention of continuing, or if QI intend to get involved.

    Fair enough, though first of all we'd have to see what rox is even up to :/

    It didn't make a wall of releases on the frontpage, so in my disappointment I just had to make a full-caps post. Sorry if you already knew :blobmelt:
