The Legend of Sun Knight V2Prologue: This is our Weekend (April Fools version)

The Legend of Sun Knight Volume 2: The Daily Duties of a Knight

Original novel in Chinese by: 御我 (Yu Wo)


Prologue: This is our Captain – translated by Raylight

Now, let us introduce you to the duties that the noble Sun Knight has to carry out every day.

His first duty is to attend various kinds of dull public events, such as the ceremony to celebrate the new king’s ascension to the throne.

His second duty is to act as an automatic waving machine. At public events such as the one mentioned above, knowing how to wave one’s hand for long periods of time and not disabling one’s wrist in the process is a deeply profound art.

The third duty that needs to be followed is the careful management of the undead creatures.

The fourth duty… Within a day, there are actually more than three of such tasks on the agenda, so everyone should understand how tough it is to be a Sun Knight by now, right?

My name is Adair. Just yesterday, I was still an ordinary holy knight. However, from today onwards, that won’t be so anymore. From today onwards, I am a member of the Sun Knight Platoon that takes orders directly from the Sun Knight!

Well, my direct superior isn’t the official Sun Knight yet, since he is the same age as me. Right now, he’s only eighteen, and historically, only when the appointed future Sun Knights turn twenty will he officially take over the duties of a Sun Knight.

“Adair, Adair! He’s here!”

A holy knight who had similarly been chosen to be part of the Sun Knight Platoon rushed in from the outside. His face was filled with excitement and he seemed flustered. Although we had been taught from a young age that a holy knight should remain calm and cool-headed, but the person that we were about to meet was, after all, the future Sun Knight!

How were we supposed to stay calm when the person we were going to meet held the position of the leader of the Church of the God of Light, who commanded all Twelve Holy Knights and was also the captain from whom we would be receiving direct orders?

Although we couldn’t seem to calm down our inner hearts at all,  we didn’t dare act impolitely in front of the Sun Knight. Within a few seconds, twenty-five holy knights from the Sun Knight Platoon assembled into neat, uniform ranks. Everyone anxiously and excitedly awaited the arrival of the Sun Knight.

The one who walked in first was the current Sun Knight. I had seen him a few times at several of the church’ various ceremonies and worship sessions, and every time I saw this Sun Knight, I couldn’t help but to praise and admire his elegant demeanor once again. The reasons for my wanting to become a member of the Sun Knight Platoon had largely to do with my admiration of this person. It was just too bad that I was born too late, and was hence unable to join this Sun Knight’s Sun Knight Platoon.

This time, the Sun Knight didn’t speak much. He carried a casual smile as he walked in, and then immediately stepped to the side. At this moment, I finally saw that there was someone behind him.

Was it him?

I held my eyes wide open, not daring to even blink. There he was, standing in the sunlight. Although the position of the sun behind him made his appearance not clearly visible, the sunlight shining on his golden hair made that head of hair shine even more than pure gold.

This golden hair! It’s so beautiful, as if it belonged to the God of Light himself, as was told in the legends. In my heart, I couldn’t help but become very excited. Perhaps, the Sun Knight that I am to serve in the future will be even more perfect than the one that I currently admire?

At this moment, he walked a few steps forward, and revealed his face and figure. He had hair that shone like pure gold, eyes that are deep blue like the ocean, skin as white as snow, a smile as radiant as the sun itself, and a demeanor that was as elegant as a prince’s… My god! Why do I seem to be a common citizen describing the Sun Knight of the legends?

It might be a bit strange for me to say it like this, for this was the future Sun Knight after all. It’s just… it’s just that he seemed to be too similar to the ‘Sun Knight of Legend’. Even the current Sun Knight differed from the legends a little, but this person before my eyes was exactly the same as the knight in the original legend.

The future Sun Knight carried a smile and looked at each of us one by one with his deep, blue eyes. Finally, he let out a sigh of gratitude, and with a smile, said to us, “Ah, it must be the benevolence of the God of Light that brought my fellow brothers to Grisia. May our bonds of brotherhood be knit evermore tightly as we come to support each other more and more. Let us join hands and unite in bringing forth an even brighter future for the people of the God of Light.”

Hearing that, I was so excited that I couldn’t contain myself. I couldn’t help but look to the left and right; all of the Sun Knight Platoon members were just as excited as me. We couldn’t help but raise our chins up high and stick out our chests, as we proudly shouted in our hearts:

“It’s Friday, Friday! Gotta get down on Friday! Everybody’s lookin’ forward to the weekend. Yesterday was Thursday. Today is Friday. We so excited, we gonna have a ball today! Tomorrow is Saturday, and Sunday comes afterwards!”

    Haha, I got completely fooled! What they really sing?

  23. Luijo Frost:

    For those who don’t get it look up Friday by rebbeca black to get it mind you you might regret it

  24. Gohankuten:

    @eilinel
    so even the staff got fooled. You guys have become evil getting everyone like this. Then again I got fooled since I didn’t even realize today was april 1st and didn’t put it together til after I had read the manhua update by odd squad which was after I had read these already. Then again the one you guys put at the end of 1/2 prince could actually happen and that’s the sad part.

  25. Karencita:

    lol, you and odd squad completly got me xD

  26. daystar:

    @Pietoss
    me too

  27. daystar:

    @eilinel
    is this chapter for real? or is the thing at the end fake?

    p.s. i got fooled to

  28. daystar:

    @Crimson Knight
    yeah

  29. daystar:

    will the hp chapter be like this too? well i’ll go take a look

  30. Vyrvat:

    I laughed at the mental image of the Sun Knight Platoon singing “Friday”. (It’s actually a pretty funny one, if you care to look into my overactive imagination.) Thanks for the chapter and happy April Fool’s!

  31. CatPaws:

    Thank you Luijo Frost for giving me the title and artist. I looked it up on youtube and watched it.
    Now I feel sick. I’m not sure exactly why… Is it because some people actually think that that is music? That some one actually bothered to write such song let alone sing it? Or was it simply listening to that song… I may never know, but now I do know of such a song and I feel sick.

  32. Aki:

    The 1/2 Prince effect was smoother… but I can’t say I didn’t expect the Friday song after reading the comments XD

    By the by, that song isn’t as bad if you don’t look at her face.

  33. guaypp_83:

    @Pietoss
    WTF??? XD

  34. guaypp_83:

    @Vyrvat
    [...]
    XD me too… ^^

  35. Purianee:

    I laughed too hard. Happy April Fool’s. xD

  36. AnemoneXDominic:

    Wow i was reading it out loud for my bro and was like wha? :)

  37. eilinel:

    The thing at the end is April joke too XD. Don’t worry we will post the real ending 1 or 2 weeks later (1 line for LSK, 15 pages of chapter for HP >_<), after everyone have a chance to see it and laugh =p. Though I think they will be quite confused if they see it any other day than 1st of April XD.

  38. chicaalterego:

    @eilinel

    i was surprised (totatally fooled) because in my country we dont celebrate april’s fools, so i forgot tht it existed (we have something alike on december though)… anyway i think people will come to realice it was a joke, after today when reading the comments. btw i love what you people did in the SK manga, big lol on that

  39. chicaalterego:

    @chicaalterego
    im so slow………and got fooled

  40. pat:

    LOL. I just got the ending. I thought the song in the end was PART of the whole thing. xD

  41. Paupu:

    I’ve already read the prologue a while ago so I knew it was a joke as soon as I saw it. But this is more amusing than the cheesy line it ends with in the original.

  42. eilinel:

    Ah we aren’t responsible for the LSK manga. OSS is a completely separate group from us. Anyway, I lol-ed when I read their manga too.

  43. Indira:

    hahaha! i love that one!.. :)

  44. Tairanda:

    LOL.
    I got AF-ed, almost. I read the ending and didn’t notice anything at all. But then I thought: “Wait… that didn’t sound right…” And the I looked at the date and understood that it was AF. The reason why I didn’t really fall was that the update was made on April the 1st and on that date no one and nothing can be really trusted or you’ll be AF-ed.

  45. ENDOFTHEWORLD:

    Wow. I went through the whole thing which seemed kind of ok, until I hit the ending.
    I thought “Why on earth would Yu Wo bring Friday into her novel?” and then I thought “Wait a sec, how would she know anything about that song when she wrote it?” Very nice trick guys.

  46. Demyxx:

    LOL…. That was an awesome April Fool’s joke, I actually like’d it better than the gay one on the comics… Lololol

  47. marie:

    So when is the real prologue coming out?

  48. Mortai:

    lol I did expect that at all

  49. MidnightAngelle:

    lol Its friday lol i just heard that song for the first time today and then i read it lol yall r awesome

  50. ime-ji shiro!:

    So that’s why The former Sun Knight chose Grisia..

  51. theresay:

    @ime-ji shiro!
    Not really… Grisia’s demeanor was beaten into him by years of…err…training…

  52. 鳥:

    Pfffft. Great April Fool’s joke. XD

  53. luzalone:

    O.o WTF!!!!!!! Waaaaa i didn’t get the joke, so i went to look for the song and …….
    i TOTALLY REGRET IT!!! waaaaaaaaaaaaa i have the lyrics u¡in my mind now!!!! WAAAAAAAAAAAAAA WAAAHHHHHH

  54. amgine:

    @luzalone
    haha, you should have checked the staff forum more often, then you’d at least know about it before you read it =p

  55. luzalone:

    @amgine
    I did check it!! And I knew you guys were scheming something, so i came to read it today prepared for anything except THIS!!! (sob sob T_T) ( I seriously shouldn’t have looked for that song…. I was so happy before I did….)

  56. Zhu Han Lin:

    I seriously did not expect that. D: I thought I put that song behind me!

  57. Cyeadux:

    Hi, I was wondering is the real chap. gonna come out this month or the joke is a snack to wait for the next month? So, should I hold on to something for the wait?

  58. amgine:

    @Cyeadux
    The real chapters for both series should be out in about a week, hopefully. Only the last sentence was changed for LSK, so that one will be out for a week for sure. The Half Prince chapter needs a bit more work, and they forced the polishing onto me. If it’s not yet out by the weekend, then you can blame it all on me. ^^

  59. Luijo Frost:

    @Aki
    more like put it on mute

  60. Tairanda:

    @amgine
    Amgine, don’t you know that it’s a dangerous thing to reveal? It gets scary when fans are displeased. And if they know who is responsible for their displeasure, they may go and bury the person. *small, innocent, yet sadistic smile spreads on Tairanda’s lips*

  61. amgine:

    @Tairanda
    Hahaha…go ahead. I’ll be laughing in the grave when you guys realize that there’s nobody left willing and able to do any translating anymore. /passiveaggressive

  62. ime-ji shiro!:

    @theresay

    Oh really~? I think I understand the importance of outer appearance in choosing the next knights, now.

  63. Vi:

    I have only heard one acoustic rendition of this song sung by some talented guys on the radio, for the purpose of pissing off everyone hatin’ on ‘friday’. I am so glad I don’t listen to commercial radio. sincerely hope this doesn’t replace rick rolling, tho i can imaging it becoming the more malicious version of bait and switch.

  64. Li:

    A delicious chapter as usual, even with this april’s fools joke.
    I have just one tiny thing to point out:
    … appointed future Sun Knights turn …
    My suggestion may hold no ground, but when I came to read that part, it felt like it should be saying “future Sun Knight” instead. There can be only one new Sun Knight.

  65. theresay:

    @ime-ji shiro!
    Yes, appearance is an important part, but it wasn’t the main reason he chose Grisia, at least not the ONLY reason ^^ It will be explained in the side stories.

  66. Tamult:

    @Li
    I think the problem is the the, not the plural s. It is referring to new Sun Knights in general, not a specific Sun Knight like Grisia. I really wonder what the last lines are though. I love The Legend of the Sun Knight. Grisia is deliciously evil at times.

  67. eilinel:

    XD theresay, it will be a long time before we translate the side stories. I plan to collect all the side stories and sort of make a “side story volume” at the end of the 8 volumes series. Speaking of which, I sure hope Yu Wo post the side stories from the manhwa soon -_- I don’t want to buy the whole set of manga just for the side story!

  68. theresay:

    I, on the other hand, bought all the sets XD I prefer physical medias, and I like the cards that come with them ^^ The “side story volume” is a great idea, though. Too bad YuWo is not considering it.

  69. eilinel:

    XD the postage is way too high, I don’t think it’s worth it considering I don’t like the sparkly manga style. Though, I have to say Cat improved in the newer volumes, it’s much nicer.

  70. theresay:

    Well, since I was buying all those doujins, adding one more set really wasn’t going to upset the postage that much >///< I actually didn't mind her art style (even though Sun looked like a girl in the beginning), but I really wish she can re-design the clothes…especially Sun's! It gives me goosebumps (not in a good way)!

  71. eilinel:

    Agreed. The wings is a pain XD. Are you going to buy the Gong Hua that is coming out in May? I so wanna one…and I wonder what kind of merchandise Yu Wo will make this time.

  72. theresay:

    Maybe. This is supposed to be the last one, right? I didn’t get the first two yet, so maybe I’ll get the whole set all at once.

  73. 15B:

    I heard the lat line was changed…
    But I was thinking the joke would more be along the lines of “And the Sun Knight fell ungracefully flat onto his face.” or something. >.> The only song that could be more random is “Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star”…

  74. immasweetslovinggirl:

    @15B
    Don’t give them ideas

  75. immasweetslovinggirl:

    ARGH FLIPPIN’ FRIDAY SONG!!!!!! Lolvso funny i didn’t even know u guys released a april fools version until now…so slow
