    Name: Rune Troopers
    Raw Link: No idea. I don't even know if it has a webnovel. But I do have the scanned LN.
    Why It Should Get Picked Up: Because it's awesome. And Gate lovers will love it too.
    Description (if you can find one):
    Basically it's the story of Japan's first peacekeeping fleet setting sail to distant waters in war capacity for the first time since WW2. They are equipped with the best technology Japan has at the time of the LN alongside a few resupply ships. During their voyage, they encountered an anomaly where they're transported into another world with all kinds of fantastic creatures, such as dragons. There, they're asked to help the kingdom beat back some enemies of some sort with their technologies that look like magic to these backward people.

    If you love Gate: Thus the JSDF Fought There, you will love Rune Trooper. Although it has similar premise with Zipang, Zipang featured only one ship. This is a whole fleet! With resupply ships! And they're not going back to the past, they're going to another world, spanking dragons with cruise missiles and AA guns! No nukes though, sorry.

    Will somebody please pick up Rune Troopers? If you don't know where to get the raw, I have the scanned LN somewhere in my hard drive. I can't translate it myself, too many things to do. Will anyone please oh please translate this?

    p/s: My Japanese is also not good. Even if I have the time, I'm not sure I'll be able to translate it.
    p/s2: I don't think you can machine translate this. It's possible to use OCR to get the stuff into digitally editable form, but there are technical and military terms that MTL can't handle.

    Buy the book, put it on a scanner. Scan it. That was what I meant.

    I suppose if you have an OCR software, you can copy paste it if you want.

    do you have permission from the author or editor to have this series translated? otherwise you are just asking for the group, that picks up the series, to be sued

    I doubt it. There are a lot of groups that translates the LN version, as opposed to the WN, and I haven't heard of any of them being sued. Of course, there's a certain rule of conduct they all go by; one of which is to stop the translation once the series itself get an official English novel. This was the case with Mahouka.

    AFAIK, Skythewood translates from the Chinese version (I remember this being mentioned whe they were doing Overlord), though I don't know about Gate, since that might be Japanese.

    Well, might be good to give it a try. Someone still have to provide them with raws though.
