    Only 4 chapters so far, so only early impressions now. Unlike most "whole class got sent to another world" set ups, the MC isn't a lone wolf which is a nice change of pace. He's not smartest or has any hidden skills, just a normal school kid. Yet, he and his friends don't appear to be idiots either. The trio seem to be handling their situations pragmatically. It gives me hope for the story.,

    I would like if I could change the theme to black letters on white background. Well, you can't have everything...

    This series was finally off to a good start once Hinjaku Honyaku picked it up but now it's ruined. Some other translator apparently has a huge backlog they are going to release as awful-looking jpeg images instead of text and ever since they started posting chapters Hinjaku Honyaku stopped.

    I wasn't aware this got picked up again. But, you're right. The text on those images is tiny.

    I though so too. Are the images really necessary?

    Though, I'm thankful that the novel got translated at all. Thank you very much tranalator-san

    We had a good translation and they quit because a shitty translation started spamming updates. What is there to be thankful about?

    Hey! The translation itself aren't bad. The releases are fast too. Do you even read them?

    No, I don't read them because they look like shit on my screen and don't work in reader view.

    There's no difference between a translation that is unreadable because it's unedited MTL and a translation that is unreadable because it's a rendered image instead of text. Both are equally defective and it's a tragedy when defective translators discourage the effective translators and make them drop out.

    Images do no display he same for everyone, between all reading mediums.
    Looking at the images on my phone by default they are to small to read, and if I zoom in (which I should not have to do) to the point the ends of the line touch the borders of my screen the text is still to small to read comfortably, especially is you have worse eyesight then me.

    The silver lining to this fiasco is that those images actually OCR reasonably well.

    I wrote a python script that downloads the images and runs them through Tesseract so now I have a collection of plain text files that I can read comfortably on my PC.

    Not sure that the series is worth going to that much trouble to read though. I'll probably just donate my python script to one of the aggregator sites so that at least other people won't have to go through all this hassle.

    Since the reason for the images is likely to try and "stop" the aggregator sites, I find this prospect amusing.

    I mean if you a minor trick and apathy is all you can really count on to stop them, a not so minor annoyance like this will only drive people to those sites if they spend the small portion of time it takes to work around your trick. I know I would be surely tempted to and I do not read on any of those sites.
