Hi everyone! Combo breaker update post (August was a whirlwind!), but here it is~

This month, we’ll be wrapping up No Hero v6 with Chapter 10 and the Afterword/Character Introductions. Volume 6 was quite a wild ride, and much as changed. Volume 7 through 9 is basically one long ending arc. Did you know that No Hero was originally planned to be 3-5 volumes, which was then extended to 7 volumes, with volume 7 being the final volume? When the final volume finally rolled about, Yu Wo announced that it would turn into two volumes. But then when she was writing volume 8, she then realized that it would result in a third volume. So here we are at 9 volumes total. Volume 7 through 9 is basically one long arc spanning three volumes.

Dominion’s End v4 is here this month! We are also bringing you some ILT and GOD, with more amusing antics from Shooting Star and Bai Saya, while Jiang Ziya goes about being a college student for once.

The Ultimate 1/2 Prince Test is ongoing! The contest ends this month on September 26. We’ve received lots of high scores (whoot!), but there is still room for an even higher score. Come test your knowledge~!

As usual, we are looking for translators! If you feel up to the task, why not send in an application? :3 We are particularly looking for people wishing to work on Dominion’s End and/or No Hero.

The French team is also looking for more members. Check them out over at PR! International, and why not consider joining?

Last month, “Prince and Gui left giving the children ‘the talk’ to Kenshin” won the poll of what Kenshin is being troubled by! Poor Kenshin…

This month, the poll is about dark creatures, thanks to ArmadaTW!

Do you have a poll idea? We are taking ideas over here.

Look forward to the releases!

GOD —The Beginning of the End— Volume 2: Elf, Nanny, Thunderous Anger

Original novel in Chinese by: 御 我 (Yu Wo)


Chapter 3: Alan the Elf, Part Two—translated by lucathia (proofread by Trespasserby)

“The clothes are too small.” Bai Saya was happy.

“That’s because you’re not wearing a corset underneath it. See, it’s that sleeveless garment right over there.”

“Um… the corset is too small.” He was even happier!

“Idiot! It’s not like a corset is a waistband. You have to push out all the air in your chest, and then you have to tighten it with all your strength. Just don’t kill yourself!”

Bai Saya used all his strength to tighten the corset. When he lowered his head to look at the corset, there were still several centimeters to go before he could fasten it! It was practically an impossible mission.

Ugh, I can’t watch any more of this! Shooting Star jumped out of the tub, and with one foot on Bai Saya’s back, used both hands to pull on the rope of the corset. He shouted, “Xiao Bai, bear with it!”

“Ah!”

Dominion’s End Volume 3: Ice-Bound Splendor and Majesty

Original novel in Chinese by: 御我 (Yu Wo)


Extra: Frozen Heart—translated by Michimochi (proofread by elisa & Arcedemius; C/E edited by lucathia)

“Boss, just a bit further and we’ll arrive.”

Lily turned her head, revealing an ugly, centipede-like scar across her face, a sigh-worthy sight.

Jiang Shutian indifferently said, “You guys station yourselves here. I’ll go in by myself.”

Upon hearing his words, Lily felt a bit uneasy. For these past years, Jiang Shutian had risked everything just to return to the Jiang family. It was not long ago that they had lost Xiao Sha. The mercenary troop didn’t have that many people left—those that were left weren’t even senior-ranked members.

It could be said that the whole mercenary troop had almost been annihilated just for the sake of coming back to this place. If they had chosen to remain stationed where they had started, they definitely wouldn’t have been like this today.

Under these circumstances, how could Jiang Shutian bear to greet failure? But in reality, they all knew that failure was just around the corner. It was just that he himself, from the very beginning, had been unwilling to face it.

“Let me come with you.”

Illusions, Lies, Truth V3C1: College Life Part 1—The Classmate with an Angel

Illusions, Lies, Truth Volume 3: In the Name of God, Part One

Original novel in Chinese by: 御 我 (Yu Wo)


Chapter 1: College Life Part 1—The Classmate with an Angel—translated by lucathia (proofread by Trespasserby)

“Jiu Ge,” as passed down, is a set of songs from the Xia Dynasty, of which different gods are worshipped. There are a total of eleven elegies, those being: The Great Unity, God of the Eastern Sky, Dong Huang Taiyi; The Lord within the Clouds, Yunzhong Jun; The God of the Xiang, Xiang Jun; The Lady of the Xiang, Xiang Furen; The Greater Master of Fate, Da Si Ming; The Lesser Master of Fate, Shao Si Ming; The Lord of the East, Dong Jun; The River Earl, He Bo; The Mountain Spirit, Shan Gui; Hymn to the Fallen, Guo Shang; and Honoring the Dead, Li Hun.

Jiang Ziya stared at this introduction, his eyes wide. Taiyi and Dong Jun?

Those that are too powerful have special names.

Like those that you have to pick up incense to pray to.

…My boss isn’t human!

But, when I asked, Fu Jun clearly said that they’re human and that I was thinking too much. S-So what in the world is going on now?

Jiang Ziya felt that this world was way too fantastical. He should just return to reality and go to school. Even if his boss really were a god, it wasn’t like he could bless Ziya and help him win the lottery, so attending school obediently was the proper thing to do.

Besides, attending class had another benefit. He had classmate Lu Yang there to ask, and he wasn’t like Yu Shu who liked to play around with answering. Since he was full of questions, of course he should rush to find classmate Lu Yang!

As usual, Jiang Ziya parked his motorcycle in the university’s parking lot. Just as he was thinking of going to the campus store first to buy some fried noodles and bread to eat with Lu Yang, to avoid having to brave the crowd during lunch time, he saw an angel drifting in front of the parking lot exit. The angel was rather familiar too; it seemed to be the very angel that had thrown punches at a ghost.

In the past, Jiang Ziya had at most only dared to sneakily glance at these things, but now that he knew he had Jiěfu backing him up at home, Lu Yang with his demon-hunting, evil-dissipating skills at school, the neighbor who was raising illusory familiars across from his place, and even his boss and Fu Jun at work… As he listed them out, he began wondering where he had gone wrong with his life. Why is there no one simple around me?

But with all that, my own truth-seeing eye doesn’t seem to be all that special anymore? Jiang Ziya suddenly found his balance. “Since everyone is the same” was indeed the best balm.
