Chapter 1: The Title of the Defeated King – translated by Evangeline

“Fairsky, have your feelings really changed?”

“Gee, I never realized that Sunshine was such a charmer. He had Fairsky in his grasp before we even noticed.”

As soon as we returned to Infinite City, everyone gathered around us and bombarded Fairsky and Sunshine with questions. The embarrassed and cornered couple had no choice but to answer the rush of questions. Everyone’s faces were grinning with their blessings for Sunshine and Fairsky. Only Lolidragon, who knew the whole story, wasn’t grinning. I spied her sighing secretly from the corner of my eye.

“In conclusion, we wish the two of you much happiness!” Everyone laughed joyously.

“Th-thanks everyone,” Fairsky stammered. Continued

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? Continued

Who reads manga?

Hey everyone, sorry for not updating this staff blog more often. I think the other staff members are feeling a bit shy, and things have been pretty hectic for me the past few weeks.

In any case, I suspect many of our readers also enjoy viewing manga. Like many of you, I first found out out PR! through an advert from Oddsquad Scan’s translation of the manhua adaptation of Prince. Speaking of which, you might have noticed some promotional material for OSS on our site. Eilinel has been in contact with them and is working to get more people aware of the novel translation from the manhua viewers and vice versa. There might be further cooperation with OSS in the future, so stay tuned!

Anywho, I really like reading all sorts of manga. I’d guess I must have finished or am actively following at least 100 different series (and that’s a conservative estimate!). What really draws me to them is the exciting storyline and having a crazy cliffhanger at the end of every chapter that makes you itching to come back for more. (Though you have to admit, our novel translations are somewhat superior in that regard, right? =P)

Being such an avid reader, I was pretty disappointed when OneManga shut down, as that’s where I had discovered many of my favorite series. There wasn’t any site with all the manga and features of OM that I liked, but eventually I settled on mangareader. Being such a lazy efficient reader who hates clicking through each page, I even made a userscript to allow me to view entire chapters and series just by scrolling down. (It’s available here if you’re interested. Firefox w/Greasemonkey/Chrome/Opera only). I suspect I’d never make it through all those series without it.

Why do you like manga? Which series do you like? Where do you get your weekly fix of manga? Feel free to share your thoughts here.

In which Sun commits suicide, Nabs blows up a chemistry lab, and the PR! staff had a ‘Guess what ice cream SR is having’ contest that resulted in the invention of new ice cream flavors.

Btw, for clarification, Requiem is a former translator (Also known as Kai, koo, etc) The rest are all still PR! members. Continued
