    I don't follow. I was under the impression that PacificNovels were the English TL right holders. @A_Passing_Wanderer can you confirm it? Because if so, then how did Fudge took it with himself?
    Or because it was a temporary contract, Fudge convinced the Koreans that hey should give it to him instead and he will make a bank with it elsewhere?

    I'm in the dark just as much as you are. I can ask Fudge, but I doubt he can tell me anything, either.

    Oh, you wrote on your twitter that you had been C&Dd by the Eng rights holders, that's why I thought you know who they are, at least at that time.

    why are people mad at the translator for wanting to keep the property himself/herself? This is a capitalist system. You have to make money. If he can get the contract and make more money than why shouldn't they? Anyone should under this system.

    Guys, I'm sure it'll work out with time. Patience is a virtue.

    Either way, we all know how this series will end. The MC will seduce the parasite queen, all the gods and they will all live in his harem happily ever after.

    The moment we found out the parasite queen is biologically female, her loss was already decided. If she were male, than she might have had 10% chance of not being seduced. Female? End game.

    This isn't a Toika novel so hopefully it won't come to that

    You shouldn't underestimate the power of Toika virus. But yes I hope it won't come to that.

    The same translator as before is doing it for wuxiaworld. So there shouldn't be any changes in terms used/style/quality.

    Turns out that pacific novels was lying this whole time and the C&D they threatened Wanderer with was also fake. @A_Passing_Wanderer so you didn't have to stop when they yelled at you before. WW's announcement gives the backstory at this link so check it out https://www.wuxiaworld.com/announcement/everlasting-gluttony-descends-on-wuxiaworld but considering the wave of C&D's the actual license holder sent out to various pirating sites you would have had a chance to actually work with the company if not for pacific yelling at you.

    doubt that they kept money from fudge, but them not explaining the situation clearly is a complete dick move.

    Just noticed WW new announcements.

    Never thought pacific novels were these kinds of people, but now they're on my shit list.

    For now they're putting the already translated chapters up (until 160), and new ones will be after they sign some licensing documents another 2-3 weeks.

    If you want to reread the novel, now might be a good time.

    It was fishy from the outset. Given how they had no way to recoup the costs.
    How does Wuxiaworld make money? It is very obvious, through subscriptions
    Same with webnovel.com
    It is a red flag when you dont see how they make money. Patreon wont cover licensing costs
    They seemed more interested in "Novel Updates Forum Street Cred" than doing business.
    The point is this, I made it clear to people that there is no way any company will just offer free to read with zero means of monetizing.
    This community mocks those who are realistic and believe that businesses have to be sustainable
    Some websites are sustained through kind words eg Yoraikun
    but hey, what do I know?
    Seriously, I feel bad for those who donated.
