  5. The Legend of Sun Knight V8C8: “The Call of Light; the Darkness that Cannot be Seen—Oracle”

Another month, another update! We have five chapters scheduled so far for you, one chapter each from our main series NH and LSK, a much needed update for Illusions, Lies, Truth (Yu Wo’s take on supernatural and horror!), and an update for Kill no More VS 1/2 Prince.

This month, we’ll also be releasing “We Are Not the Dark Human Squad Part One.” This was one of the promised side stories Yu Wo wrote for the End of the Year Event she held at the end of 2012. She hasn’t written a second part to the story yet. We don’t know when she’ll finish this side story, or if she still plans to finish it. But we’ve translated it anyway, and this brings us up-to-date on all current LSK side stories. There’s only one side story left that we haven’t released yet (we’ve already translated it). It is set post-canon, so we’ll release it after we’ve released all of V8.

Guess what? Proofreader applications are open! They will be open for around one week, until May 9th. We have a lot of chapters already translated, waiting for your expert eyes! You’ll be working on mostly NH and your pick of DE, ILT, Romance RPG, KNMvsHP, and/or some LSK. If you’d like to help make more regular releases of our side projects happen, as well as help us continue to be able to regularly release NH and LSK, come and apply! We seek proofreaders who are both skilled and dedicated. You will have a lot of work to do and be expected to meet deadlines. But of course, your workload depends on how much you can handle! Take a look at your schedule to see if you will have time for this! We will be putting you right to work!

To apply to be a proofreader, head over to our recruitment page and download the proofreader application. We have changed one question and added one more. Don’t rush — we want your best. As long as you send in your application before the deadline, we will take a look at it and consider it. We will be making our final decision at the end of the application period. We’ll keep you updated via Twitter and Facebook.

ETA: The proofreader application period has now ended. Thanks so much to everyone who applied! We’ll try our best to finish responding within a week.

Speaking of Facebook, raylight and EvlNabiki will be our new admins running the Facebook page. Raisha has taken good care of it for a long time. Thank you so much, Raisha! Let us know what you’d like to see on our Facebook page!

We’re so happy to be able to bring you this update post at the start of the month, just like last month! The stars must be aligning just right for this to happen a 2nd time in a row, but hopefully that’s not a sign of an impending red meteor shower. Not only do we have the update post ready for you, we even have a double release of LSK and NH today! It’s only one chapter each, but at least they’re super early! Enjoy, and have fun!

Check back later in the month for your usual chapter releases, and we’ll likely be back to edit this post with another chapter or two once we figure out what else we’re able to finish this month! We have also added all the chapter titles (subject to change) for V3 of No Hero. Yu Wo has a really cool naming system for these No Hero chapters~.

Last month, we restarted our monthly polls with the question “Whose cooking would you like to try?”

Here were the end results!

Whose cooking would you like to try?
Feng Lan’s
(8.9%, 60 Votes)
Ecilan Ice’s
(67.66%, 456 Votes)
Charles Endelis’s
(23.44%, 158 Votes)
Total Voters: 674

Seems like many of you like desserts! Ice is super happy!

The new poll this month is, “Who would you like to listen to sing?”

Last of all, we will be restarting the public forums in the near future. (Third time’s the charm?) If you have anything you would like to save from the forums, please do so as soon as you can. We will be nuking the forums soon! (Do you think sending in Grisia or Ah Ye would be more effective?)

ETA: You can now grab a PDF version of No Hero v2 over here thanks to ListeningDaisy!

Update: February 2015

February Chapters
  1. No Hero V2C8: Voice by Voice, the Hero Hears the Prayers
  2. The Legend of Sun Knight V8C4: “The Betrayer of the God of Light—The Black General”
  3. No Hero V2C9: Conflict Arises, the Selfish Hero
  4. Kill No More VS ½ Prince V1C1: Chapter 1
  5. The Legend of Sun Knight V8C5: “The Battle Declaration from the Light—The Alarm that the Demon King Set Forth”

Happy February, and happy Chinese New Year! :) Here’s our tentative schedule for the month. We’ve only listed our main series, Legend of Sun Knight and No Hero (2 chapters each~~~), but you never know when you might see a random chapter pop up for one of our other series, haha. Don’t hold your breath though, because February is quite a short month, so we’ll just be promising our main series. We’ll probably see more of our other series next month! We’ll edit this post if any new chapters suddenly decide to grace us with their presence.

Each chapter of LSK brings us closer to the end, ahhhh! (But never fear, there’s 39 LSK after that). Still, quite a lonely thought. :’) (PS. Any guesses about the Black General’s identity?)

No Hero reaches the climax of V2 in these chapters. Enjoy the ride!

ETA: We’ve added a character page for Kill No More to introduce readers who don’t know Kill No More to the series. You’ll be seeing some of these characters in the Kill No More x 1/2 Prince crossover we are translating. The crossover is set early during Kill No More and post-series for 1/2 Prince. If you read over the character page, it will be a suitable crash course for the short story. ;) This crash course is written by Lucathia, so if you see that there are similarities between what is written here and what is written in her livejournal, don’t be alarmed. :’D;;

ETA: A message from EvlNabiki looking for some help with Papermoon scans! Click the read more to find out more.

ETA: We’ll be releasing chapter 1 of the Kill No More VS 1/2 Prince crossover this month!


Update: January 2015

January Chapters
  1. The Legend of Sun Knight V8C3: “The Game of the Demon King—Role Play, Part One”
  2. Romance RPG V1C2: Part Two
  3. No Hero V2C7: In the City, the Hidden Hero
  4. Dominion's End V1C1: The Red Meteor Shower
  5. The Legend of Sun Knight V8C3: “The Game of the Demon King—Role Play, Part Two”

Welcome to January, to 2015! Here’s to another year of novel translations! Our main projects at the moment are Legend of Sun Knight and No Hero, which means regular releases for these two series every month. Our other projects are side projects. We’ll release chapters for these series a bit more sporadically, so you might see them one month but not the next month. For example, no ILT this month!

We’re splitting LSK V8C3 into two halves because the chapter was quite a monster. Here we thought NH chapters were long! Anyway, we’ll be releasing Part One in a few hours. Enjoy~.

We have a new epub for LSK v7 thanks to Aoinezumi! You can grab it over here.

Any New Year’s resolutions? Yu Wo hopes to publish seven books!
