78910 are the harder conditions. It should be a little challenging. XDDD

All conditions must be met before 12 midnight for them to count~~

Let’s work hard together~~~~~

PS: The works I’ll be posting will be all over the place. (Yu Wo lists the titles: 不殺外傳、朦塵月、女武、尋找羅蘭、人娃契、EX或者新開) or new pitfalls, etc~~

So what are you waiting for? Go spam Yu Wo (or just visit her blog)!

(Also, happy holidays everyone! \o/)

LSK Manhua Part 2 – Character Designs

posted in: Blog | 11

The manhua has finished covering volume 1 of the novel and is now starting on adapting volume 2 of the novels, which brings some new characters! Yu Wo sneakily posted the character designs in her blog and her Facebook page. It amuses me greatly how excited she is about the character designs.

Here’s her blog post where you can find character designs for Sun, Judgment, Moon, Cloud, and Stone:

Stone looks completely different from Ya Sha’s design for the novel art! Truly a very different interpretation of the same character.

The following is a quick translation of Yu Wo’s comments on the designs~. What are your thoughts about the new character designs? :)

Yu Wo’s 2009 Plurks

posted in: Blog | 19

Hello, this is Lucathia, one of the translators you haven’t read a chapter from yet, though I’ve been around. I’ll be helping with livening the staff blog a bit. If you have any topics you’d like to see, let us know!

First up, I thought it would be nice to translate some of Yu Wo’s plurks. She often plurks about random thoughts, sneak previews of her books, and such. I went to the beginning of her plurk and started from there, so it’ll take a while to reach her recent plurks (they also include more spoilers for later volumes of LSK, so I’ll save those for later and leave them out for now). I excluded most plurks that have nothing to do with 1/2 Prince, LSK, Yu Wo herself, and/or her thought processes. You might see some unfamiliar novel titles here and there when she mentions her other works. We haven’t really settled on English translations for the titles of those novels, so keep in mind that English titles are all tentative.

Below are her 2009 plurks with links to her original plurks if you’d like to leave her a comment. If I skipped any plurks you’d like to see translated, comment with a link to that plurk and I’ll include it next time! (Unless they’re very spoilerish~). After reading these, I’m sure you’ll come away thinking that Yu Wo’s quite quirky. ;)
