List of all of Yu Wo’s works

Hi, this is Ray. Because many people seem to be interested (well, it ranked pretty high when I did a poll, and it kind of is a pre-requisite for No. 6), so here is a complete list of Yu Wo’s works, in order of oldest to newest. Here, I will be posting the status of the novel (whether it is ongoing or complete), and where to read it if available. Also, I will posting short info about it, and the summary of volume 1 (Because I suck at summaries, ha. I can never get it to sound interesting without revealing too much of the plot >.< )

Anyways. Most of Yu Wo’s later works are better, so if you guys have the chance, go read them XP Also, I suck at name translations, so I’ll be leaving most of them in Chinese.

(As for the rest of the poll, I’ll be doing the list of recommended light novels next, and then the plurks, I believe. It’s just that it’s taking me a long time to gather the list… ) (Actually, news flash, the plurks are just as popular. But both are time-consuming. *eye twitches* I’ll do depending on mood then.)

Well, anyways, enjoy!

1/2 Prince
Status: Complete (8 volumes, 1 sequel volume)
Where to read this: You are here. (Sequel translations ongoing @PR!)
Info: Yu Wo’s first work. It brought her to fame. Not her best work, but definitely the one of the most famous.

Summary:
If you need a summary for this, then why are you here? XD If you really do want one, though, go to our 1/2 Prince main page.

—————-
Kill No More
Status: Complete (13 volumes/ 8 repacked volumes, 1 side story volume)
Where to read this: Currently there is no one translating it, I believe (EDIT: It’s now being translated at Japtem.)
Info: I haven’t read it, but apparently it involves machines, magic and dragons.

Summary:
“Killing, is for survival; Not killing, is to uphold a promise”

Liaula: An assassin who promises not to kill again. (The reason for not committing suicide, is because even suicide counts as killing someone, and I don’t kill)

Kaiser: In the beginning of an era of chaos, a lazy person who seeks only to survive. (Bastard! Liaula, will it kill you to create less trouble for me?)

A downhearted assassin + a lazy person who wouldn’t move a finger more than needed to earn money as long as he has enough to survive = The duo who is super good at stirring up trouble?

This two people who are only lacking of going to the Shao Lin Temple to become a monk, how did they stir up so much trouble? (Kaiser: Bastard! Who wants to go to the Shao Lin Temple to become a monk? One still has to wake up early to recite sutras there! How troublesome!)

And the assassin who insists on not killing, in this era of killing, can he still retain his principles?

(Credits: I took the name translations from Luka. More for info, visit Luka at this post. )

Romance RPG
Status: Complete (1 volume)
Where to read it: Currently there is no one translating it.
Info: A short rare romance comedy from Yu Wo. Yu Wo claims not to be able to write romance… But I think she did pretty okay for this book.

Summary:
Unable to control his own mouth, Lin Jian Yin’s barbed tongue has already scared off six ex-girlfriends and six ex-managers. Finally unable to take it, he came to a strange antique shop under the recommendation of his friend. Inside there, there was supposed to be something that could help him.

Though Nintendo Cartridges were a little old and probably no one plays it anymore right now, but does one have to exaggerate it so much as to display it in an antique shop to sell?

Carrying the Nintendo home, Lin Jian Yin plugged in the cartridge that the boss had sold at a large discount at, and then discovered that it was actually a raising(simulation) game. The female lead inside was neither a cute loli (little girl), or a mature onee-sama (strong mature woman). Instead, it was someone with the hair of an auntie, wearing blue and white slippers. To say that that terrifying woman is a Taiwanese babe would be severely disgracing Taiwanese babes.

God! His mission is actually to marry this woman to a perfect prince, how is this possible!!

Wait a moment, as the main male lead, Lin Jian Yin actually isn’t that prince. T-then, who exactly is he… No, ‘what’ exactly is he?

————–
GOD
Status: Complete (11 volumes)
Where to read it: Currently there is no one translating it
Info: The plot seems to go nowhere at first, but it turns into a struggle for the universe. I was kind of accidentally spoiled about the the ending, doesn’t seem like one I would like.

Summary:
What kind of manner should a book’s lead male character act in? Handsome and stylish?
Wrong! He looks cute, and likes to act innocent!

Kind-hearted?
Wrong again! He’s vicious in his attacks, and likes to rub salt into other people’s wounds for fun. He doesn’t use the XXX Holy Sword (XXX Insert any random god’s name), but likes to use a bloody serpent whip to SM others.

Someone who likes to train so much that they become an idiot?
I’m sorry, but someone who likes to ‘eat’ so much that they become an idiot, is that okay?

Have a special interest in rescuing princesses?
This point is completely correct. After rescuing them, he can conveniently collect them as a pet!

OH~ MY GOD!
This… What kind of lead male character is this?
To let someone like this become the main character~~ Chaos, the moment this story started, it’s already chaos!

——————————
Legend of the Sun Knight
Status: Complete (8 volumes)
Where to read: … Do you even need to ask? XD
Info: Probably the most famous and best-selling work of Yu Wo so far. It’s the most popular in Taiwan as well as Singapore. In Thailand it’s a different story altogether.  

Summary: I seriously don’t see the need for a summary, but if you want one… Go here: Sun Knight Main page
—————————-
Eclipse Hunter
Status: Complete (5 volumes)
Where to read: Currently, can be read at OSS (3 volumes translated here)
Info: The prelude to No Hero, though can be read separately. Where do I even begin… It’s a pretty good read, though a little stale in the middle cause it’s too normal. But it has a pretty dramatic start and end. It’s a tale of two brothers who would do anything for each other.

Summary:
“I was born for the sake of protecting my brother.”
“If that is the case, then, my dear brother, I was born for the sake of protecting your freedom. Go on and do whatever makes you happy. If you wish to destroy the Earth, I would prepare the grenades for you. If you wish to destroy me, then before you kill me, please call me ‘brother’ one last time.”

In the year 2105, the country declined… The Earth had been divided into several hundreds of economic organizations. Yet, these several hundreds of economic organizations had all formed into various economic unions for their benefit. Among them, the biggest union is the Sun Union, that has control over thirty percent of the world’s economy. The leader of the Sun Union is also believed to have the world’s greatest power.

Originally, the Sun Union had yet to rise to the top five unions. However, after Devon (Ri Xiang Yan) rose to the position of leader, under his leadership, their influence expanded ceaselessly. Devon (Ri Xiang Yan) appeared to crave for power intensely, continuously expanding, constantly expanding…

It wasn’t that no organizations had tried to keep this organization that was expanding too rapidly under control, but Devon (Ri Xiang Yan) seemed to be able to predict their moves, and would often destroy his opponents first before the crisis arrived. Otherwise, he would follow their movements, and those who schemed against him would often find themselves actually becoming the one being schemed against right at the critical moment. Everyone would furiously yell that a bit more and they would have defeated him… Unfortunately, they would precisely be defeated right before that crucial moment.

Once, twice. When every time became as such, the people finally understood. This was not an coincidence, or Heaven’s will. It was the Sun Emperor controlling all this!

Every opponent who had once tried to compete with him, each of them swore never to match this person again.

Every single person said that everything was under his control, and any kind of cunning planning nor sinister plots could not be hidden from him.

In this world, his existence is like that of a God’s.

He cannot be defeated.

People then named this legendary existence out of respect – The Sun Emperor.

‘However, a great achievement would usually have an reason that cannot be more simple.”

All is for your sake, my beloved little brother.
I care nothing but
Only you
Nothing is more important than you.

No Hero
Status: Ongoing (Currently at 8 volumes. Estimated to finish in 9 volumes)
Where to read: PR! is planning to take this up after Female Warrior. There’s also Asmodea’s translations (Up to Chapter 3 here)
Info: The sequel to Eclipse Hunter, though can be read separately. Personally, I have read it and liked it. It’s like LSK, except exposing the cruel realities of heroes rather than knights. Well, it’s not as funny without a snarky narrator though… XP

Summary: (I think Asmodea’s summary is also better than mine. *sobs*)

My name is Zhao Suo Endless. My occupation is a butler, and I am currently seeking employment.

I was born into an traditional family who has been butlers for generations, and have received the strictest butler education. If I were to be modest and say that I am still a pretty good butler, probably no one in the world would dare to claim that they are a perfect butler.

Even so, I am always out of a job. However, this has nothing to do with my capabilities in this field, but rather, a problem regarding a case of racial discrimination.

I am a vampire.

After much difficulty, I found a young master who didn’t have an inkling of racial discrimination at all. Just when I was happily immersing myself into a role of a butler, bit by bit I discovered that this young master of mine was probably also not a normal human…

Dear Father:
Please bless your only child from the heavens, and let this young master who isn’t an ordinary person with his vampire butler live an ordinary life!

From your son,
Zhao Suo Endless

Magical Exchange
Status: Complete (1 volume)
Where to read: No one is translating it
Info: I haven’t seen a completed version of it online, nor have I seen the book being sold, so I reckon I wouldn’t know how good it is. But I think it’s slightly related to Romance RPG, in the sense that this is the mysterious shop he went to XD

Summary:
God can help you to become virtuous
Devil can help you to become evil
The price
If it’s small, it’s like dropping a strand of hair
If it’s big, then suffer a torture that is even more painful than death
You, do you dare to bet?
Between God and the Devil,
You, which one would you choose?

Two similar but different handsome pretty guys, with the same slender and fine physique, refined facial features, eyes that can cause others to become intoxicated, and a temperament that could attract others.

Golden-haired and blue-eyed, with a gentle and amiable gaze and a faint smile that could always let people feel at ease. From head to toe, he emitted an aura that would make people feel happy and content, and his voice seemed to be able to erase all sorrow. He was someone who was gentle and benevolent, a person who had gathered all that was good and beautiful into one body.

Black-haired and red-eyed, with a dangerous undertone in his gaze and a dangerous smile that could always let people feel fidgety. From head to toe, he emitted an aura of a deadly attractiveness, and his voice seemed to be able to take away your spirit. He was someone dangerous and deadly, a person who had gathered all that was ruthless and unfeeling into one body.

Then now, tell us your wish. If you wish to become good, then God Charity will serve you. If you wish to become evil, then Demon Chaos would be your best choice.

The price, will be decided by us.

Gong Hua (Black Flower)
Status: On hiatus at the moment due to the cover artist’s pregnancy. Will be ongoing afterwards(Currently at 3 volumes. Estimated to finish in 5 volumes)
Where to read: Giraffe Corps (Translated up to Volume 1 Chapter 4 – Giraffe Corps)
Info: A different twist than Yu Wo’s usual works. She tried going for a dark tragedy. So for those who want a lot of humor, this book may not be for you. The main character is someone who lives only for revenge, that’s how dark this book is. While I have not read this book, someone in the PR staff have commented that “It’s like a train wreck. You can’t look away”. So I presume it’s good.

Summary: (You might want to read the summary at Giraffecorps… it’s better OTL)

The tree let out a great sad cry before its death, the Leaf tribe gathering under all filled with deep grief. Before the tree withered, it gave birth to a flower who was responsible for protecting the Leaf tribe.

Faced with their strongest protector full of strength, the Leaf tribe lost their heads out of fear… A guardian flower that has lost its tree… is likely to go crazy. We could not keep him, definitely not. The protector that was abandoned by its tribe was instead picked up by humans. The humans gave him a name – Gong Hua. The gentle human taught him love; The passing away of all his loved ones taught him hate. Gong Hua who was just starting to understand things of the world discovered that the first thing that he ought to do was… Revenge. However, at the same time, he discovered that he himself was also a recipient of someone’s vengeance.

The desire for revenge and the instinct to protect constantly clashes. He abruptly found out, before taking his revenge, he still had to learn- To chose Yin Qie Zi, Gong Hua; Two names, two kinds of instincts. In the end, which should he choose?

—————-
Female Warrior
Status: Not started yet. (2 volumes of side stories published)
Where to read: To be on PR! soon
Info: It’s about the 1st generation of the Twelve Holy Knights. Unfortunately  lots of things haven’t been revealed due to Yu Wo not having started on the main story yet. However, all character designs are already out.

Summary:
For a short summary… Go here!
—————
Legend of the Sun Knight 39
Status: Ongoing (Currently at 1 volume, estimated to finish in 3 volumes)
Where to read: PR! will be translating it when LSK ends. Which is a long time, but trust me, it has spoilers inside so you would want to wait till you finish LSK
Info: Sequel/spin-off of Legend of the Sun Knight. The protagonist is not Grisia Sun.

Summary:

I am a holy knight. To be more precise, I am the Church of the God of Light’s Sun Knight… in training.
The Church of the God of Light worships and serves the God of Light, and theirs is one of the three largest religions on this continent.

As the whole continent knows, the Church of the God of Light has the Twelve Holy Knights, and each one has his own unique personality and features.

To be the Sun Knight is to have shining golden hair, sky blue eyes, a compassionate nature, and a brilliant smile. – Even if you’re a Sun Knight in training, there is not exception to the rule.

- Rest of summary omitted for fear of minor spoilers XD -

—————
Illusion, Lies and Truth – Human Doll Contract
Status: Ongoing (Volume 1 to be released, no info about the number of volumes yet)
Where to read: Yu Wo haven’t released yet, no way to read it XP
Info: This was actually a series that she posted sometimes on her blog and left alone for a long time, but it seems like she finally managed to get enough materials to publish it. It’s kind of supernatural, and involves Ball-Jointed Dolls XD It has a very pretty cover. XP (If you want to see the cover, go to here)

Summary: (on the book cover picture)
Calling their name once would wish them into illusion.
Calling their name twice would change them into lies.
Calling their name thrice would turn them into real.
Do you know, the things that are beside you, how many of them are real, and how many of them are lies?

——
Future works: (Not sure when)
- Female Warrior
- Searching for Roland
——–
And that would be all. Phew, what a pain it was to translate all of that! Technically, I could copy the translations of the other group for the summary… but that would be plagiarism, and that’s not nice. So instead, you can go over through those links to see the better translations *cough*

So, this concludes my poll no. 5. I hope you guys liked it! Comments would be nice. Very nice. This blog post is a non-repeatable quest, and there shall not be future posts. And I shall end this post. As per usual, Ray’s Q&A corner is open, so shoot any questions you have at me! (No actual bullets please, thank you very much)

If there is anything regarding Yu Wo (news, etc) that you guys want me to help translate, you can suggest it to me too, I’ll try my best to translate it for you guys. Of course, it would only be when I’m free. (Don’t ask me to translate the whole of GOD or Kill No More though.. I’ll cry)

So. Q&A. Any questions/requests?

    Legend of sun knight 39 sounds like it would be about grisia’s apprentice……may the god of light shine mercifully upon his soul

      @master_tonberry
      Seconded! I wonder which is scarier – being Neo’s apprentice or being Grisia’s apprentice?

      • 6:47 pm, January 27, 2013Little Writer  / Reply

        @黒
        No doubt it’s Grisia. Remember, Grisia was known as the one closest to the Sun Knight’s actual image. And even though Neo is awesome and all, Grisia defeated the Death Knight/Lord, defeated the Undying Lich, slew a dragon, etc. etc.
        I would never want to be a Sun Knight, especially when you have to put up with such scary teachers…Poor 39th Sun Knight, he’s merely got one hell of a teacher. A devil teacher. (if you got the reference, good for you ^.^)

    yay! a list of Yu Wo stories~ Thank you~
    hmm…I declare, this ’1/2 Prince’ sounds quite interesting, I simply must go read it since some awesome translation group took the trouble to translate the whole thing!
    -
    Kill No More also sounds like alot of fun (and it was pretty much what i expected given the title) Dragons, robots and a shao lin temple…sounds like the ingredients for insane fun XD I hope PR tries to tackle this one after No Hero ^^ (probably be years from now, but im thinking ahead ^^;
    question though, what is a repacked volume?
    -
    PFFFFFT~ WHAAAAAT?! XD RPG is about a guy with a very surreal copy of princess maker?! (its a real game) Golly…Golly golly gosh…That might be the most insane story ever…and its a romance novel?! Gosh…I really want to read this one XD
    -
    Umm…From the description, GOD sounds like a less insane version of sun knight so it might be alot of fun though…It doesnt sound as insane as Sun Knight ^^;
    Well its interesting to see that Yu Wo did such a long series (between this and kill no more, it seems like she had a problem with length initially)
    -
    *Claps* Gosh, this Legend of Sun Knight is an awesome story~ thank you for providing a synopsis on it! XD
    -
    Yeah….I kinda forgot about it but Eclipse Hunter started out pretty bloody dark initially ^^; Comparing it to the status quo before 3′s finale and its kinda surreal in a way
    -
    Hah? mister morning chasers surname is endless? @_@ huh, the names some ‘people’ have XD annnnd the summery specifically mentions his whole vampire thing and the hero thing so i can safly make lots of batman jokes to my hearts content~ yipee~ yay for the batman(butler) vampire~
    Im really looking forward to it XD
    -
    magical exchange…sounds very trippy/tragic/dark…A shame a completed version cannot be found online though (or for sale for that matter) hmm…So Yu Wo sorta has a series about a magic shoppe where you can buy mysterious things at and does one volume shorts on this store without connecting the stories beyond the shoppe…Darn, id have totally asked for a short story about this store if I knew about it XD
    back to magical exchange, it sounds like it could be very good (and possibly very sad) and if i knew the language id probably try trawling around for a copy ^^;
    Odd though that its only partially posted up online…One would expect it to come as a whole
    -
    Umm, to clarify on Gong Hua, its only at three chapters so far. The giraffe corps translated the fourth chapter but havnt done that proof reading stuff thus havnt actually released it for people to see.
    The one problem with tragic emotional train wrecks is you become much more frustrated by slow translations ^^; Not that GC are necesarily slow, their doing a swell job and its an amazing read. ^^ But…Its like reading a story where every chapter ended on the current sun knight stories ‘prologue’ in terms of tone and cliffhangeryness
    A very good story and it is super duper tragical
    -
    Ooooh, so these Female Warrior volumes are short stories? Here I thought it was similar to the first two novels of Sun Knight where Yu Wo stressed it was more of an introduction to the characters and setting. Hmm…Should be interesting…Any news whether Yu Wo will be doing more short story volumes or instead be moving on to the story proper next?
    -
    @_@ *reading the summery of Sun Knight 39* wow…
    The way that is worded alone sounds a bit spoilery but…Hmm…I think I probably shouldnt speculate when were still more or less halfway through the original…Umm one non spoilery question though, what is the name of the young sun knight to be?
    -
    *reads human doll contract* wow…as a mega big super fan of Rozen Maiden, this series is going to make me squee in delight!!!!! X3 Seems pretty interesting! Squee~ and the cover has a fishie!
    -
    ah, and searching for roland is separate from sun knight 39?
    -
    squeee~ thank you very much for providing this information~ Much appreciated as it gives us language impaired fans a chance to truly know the many diverse and wonderful directions Yu Wo has taken~ thank you!

          Roland can only become the Sun Knight if Grisia doesn’t keep his promise with Neo. Remember that Neo said Grisia must destroy Roland at some point? And plus, Roland’s obsession is to become the Sun Knight. The moment Grisia picks him *poof* Roland disappears!
          It’s too bad, Roland would actually make a super-good Judgement Knight.

      @Jasae Bushae
      A repacked volume means that they re-published the whole thing, (I think with different covers). It happens so that the new Kill No More volumes are thicker = less volumes.

      As for Magical Exchange, it’s not being reprinted anymore, so I can’t get the book OTL (I would have wanted to read it too) The reason why it’s half-published is cause Yu Wo posted some of it up on her blog. (She posted the whole of Romance RPG on her blog too XD)

      For Female Warrior, when I asked her at the book event in Singapore, she commented that she would start on Female Warrior after she is done with one of her series, but she keeps coming up with new plots that she wants to write, so I have no idea when she would publish it. Pretty sure that if she did though, it would be moving onto the story properly though.

      I’m trying very hard not to release details about LSK 39 cause it’s spoilery. In minor/major ways. It’s best to be read after the entire series of LSK. However, I’m just letting you guys know that there is a sequel after LSK, so no need for LSK withdrawal symptoms. (Cause this would mean 8 volumes of LSK + 3 sequel volumes)

      I’m pretty interested in Human Doll Contract. However, it’s not so much Rozen Maiden, I’m afraid. It’s a bit more… creepy than that. It reminds me a little more of xxxHolic because the main character has an eye that allows him to see ‘things’. (Yu Wo has some of her old writing on her blog, so yeah, I can give a very vague plot if you want me to)

      Searching for Roland is separate from LSK 39. ^^ However, Yu Wo has yet to give a date/time as to when it would be published.

      Andddd all of you guys’ appreciation is all I need. XD

        woo~ thank you for the answers~ ^^
        hmm…i wonder if i should try organizing a petition to ask Yu Wo to post up the rest of contract…*considers it* but then i wouldnt be able to send it since i dont speak chinese so…XD

        spoiler sun is filled with spoilers apparently ^^; it will be fun to find out the details when it comes up XD
        and yay~ a roland story~ i wonder how long it shall be ^^
        -
        more creepy than rozen maiden? a story that included a human collecting doll with a flower growing out of her head and entering peoples minds to change them all willy nilly? o.O wells i enjoyed xxxholic (though i found it more thought provoking than scary) so it still sounds delightfully entertaining ^^
        umm…if its not to much spoiler can you tell me the name of the protaganist? I don’t want to have to much spoiled in the event that PR decides to cover it but the innocent little tidbits should be safe :3

      The fourth chapter of Gong Hua is available to read; it hasn’t been proofread, though, so they pretty much put the password on to deter grammar nazi’s, hehe. If you read their FAQ, they state the password is “pie” without quotation marks, and also put a brief warning for said grammar freaks.

      When I first discovered Giraffe Corps, I didn’t know this, and so spent a long period in agony waiting for the next Key of the Sunken Moon chapter to come out… rather sad finding out later that I could have read the chapters earlier and spared myself the pain, though it would have been a rougher copy, so to speak.

      I really have to agree, it’s a very good read. A lot like the feel at the beginning of Eclipse Hunter, being continued throughout the rest of the book… I got hooked immediately. I wish there was more of it translated, the end of the fourth chapter is worse than the end of the third… I am in complete agreement with “Its like reading a story where every chapter ended on the current sun knight stories ‘prologue’ in terms of tone and cliffhangeryness” ;D

      If you’re obsessed enough with Yu Wo’s work, you can always find her work on-line and read it with google translator. it’s terrible, but after you get used to it it’s sort of understandable.

    I love Yu Wo’s novels, after reading the manga LSK, I liked it so much went and found the translated novel, and when that wasn’t enough, i found it online in chinese and struggled with my poor chinese reading skill and read the entire series (then i had relatives buy the book and bring it to the US), and when even that wasnt enough i started to read other works of Yu Wo, by now i have read almost all of them, and some of them twice or thrice…LSK is still one of my favorites, but i strongly suggest reading Kill No More (i also have this entire series) and No Hero (reading eclipse hunter first will enhance the experience in my opinion) , i love these three of her works the most ^^

        From Roland’s pov? Searching for Roland makes it sound like someone else is doing the searching.

        But anyways, I’m really excited to see what this will be about. Especially after volume 6 of LSK, the title alone has a bunch of connotations…

          Uh, I mean it is supposed to be a story about Roland (the Death Lord), and my speculation is that it takes place in the time in between volume 6 and 7 (where you know what happened to Sun)

          (somewhat spoilery)
          Roland actually becomes the leader of an undead army, and I believe that the story may be from one of his follower’s point of view.

            I was kind of hoping for a post-LSK story, but anything LSK related is always good XD. One of the drawbacks of a first person story is that we mostly only get to see Grisia’s side. It’ll be interesting to see what’s going on around Roland.

            There is a post LSK story called LSK 39, which features the 39th generation! Though it focuses on the 39th gen, some members of the 38th gen make an appearance. (actually they’re pretty important to the story) To say anything more other than that is a spoiler. XP

            And yes, that is the drawbacks of a first person point of view story. Even Yu Wo herself admits that www

            @[PR]raylight
            I saw that! From the brief summary above it appears to be more lighthearted, like how LSK started off as. If the current tone in LSK continues through to the end, I think we’ll all need something a little lighter by then ;>_>. Not that I don’t love all the drama too of course ;).

            Has Yu Wo ever hinted at a sequel with Grisia as the narrator again? That’s probably hoping for too much, but I think it’s finally hitting me that there’s less than two volumes left to go in the main storyline :_(.

          • 8:16 pm, May 2, 2014[PR]raylight 

            @[PR]raylight
            Don’t worry, it would be a bit more light-hearted after this current chapter! From V7C2 onwards, the series will have humor again :) (But the last few volumes have a lot of drama and serious plot, so it definitely wouldn’t be as light-hearted as the first few volumes)

            Unfortunately, no! There isn’t a sequel with Grisia as the narrator. However, she does write side stories for LSK from time to time on her blog, and Grisia makes a cameo appearance in one of her other series (Though it’s not exactly the Grisia we know. I think I will be spoiling if I tell you which one though, but *hint* I’ll just say that there’s a lot of LSK fans in PR and hence we are translating that series as well!)

            I haven’t started on No Hero yet, but in Eclipse Hunter, the main character’s older brother reminds me a lot of Sun. That’s probably not what you meant though.

      Basically, you have this crazy protagonist who likes to collect beautiful humans, going on quests just so that he can obtain them into his party. (Gotta catch them all~)

      I have heard that later on there’s supposed to be a fight for the universe or something though.

    Hi! Under Kill No More, you mentioned that there was a side story, would that be about the crossover between the worlds of HP and KNM? Is PR going to be translating that crossover after the extra volume of HP is completed? Or would it be too spoilerish for others who haven’t read KNM?

      It is indeed very spoilerish for Kill No More! It takes place after 1/2 Prince and around the beginning volumes of KNM but spoils for those beginning volumes. We would only translate it after we translated up to that point for KNM, so we will not be translating it at this time.

          Book Writer is best read after the main story, Volume 1 of Human Doll Contract – Illusions. Lies. Truth cause it explains a lot about the setting of the story.

          As for Grisia and Charles, they are a different version of the one in their respective series, so it’s not exactly a side story…

          I would love to translate it, but I’ll have to get translations done to a certain extent before I can put anything up, haha.

    I was browsing through yuwo’s blog, and while opening up the tree of links by the side, I discovered this “極短篇” (Short Stories) which branched out to “微小說” (Super Short Stories) and “革命前夕” (Eve Before the Revolution). Does PR! know exactly what they are? Like r they side stories of some other novels that she’s written, or r they short stories set in another world?

    And to the Singaporean PR! staff, do you know where I can buy Book Writer from? Is it too late? >< I haven't checked Kino yet though… Is it possible to buy from there or do I have to order from online? Please help!!

    • 3:43 pm, October 19, 2014[PR]lucathia  / Reply

      微小說 seems to be super short snippets of stories Yu Wo has posted. 革命前夕, based off of what it says at the end of the prologue she posted for that, is a short story Yu Wo wrote as a prequel to advertise an animated movie called 海盜密令, Kotora on the Run.

      Movie site: http://blog.xuite.net/porticomedia/kotora2008/17209588

      I’m not in Singapore, but it might be too late to buy Book Writer. I don’t believe it was ever offered in Singapore (but Singaporeans would know better than me!). Book Writer had a very limited printing and is now out of print. You might be able to find it second hand?

          Wow thks for the replies Lucathia and Raylight! I was mainly thinking of buying to support the author, but since it’s all sold out already, then nvm. The other part of the reason was just to read it; I didn’t think that the parts posted were already the full story – seemed a little shorter than an actual book. Will go read it now! Much thks again!
