Happy last month of the decade. :) We started PR! a decade ago, and here we still are! We missed our own 10 year anniversary back in April without realizing it until after, but hey, just think of our April Fool’s prank back in April as a celebration of the big day. It was close enough to the actual day we got started, in any case. (In fact, we celebrate our group’s birthday every year with April Fool’s!)
So, a decade has gone by. What a journey it’s been. We’ve finished long projects such as 1/2 Prince and The Legend of Sun Knight, and shorter projects such as Female Warrior and Romance RPG. We’ve had staff and readers come and go, and some even returning years later! We’re proud to say that we see our projects to completion and have brought steady updates over the years, though they may not be fast. ;) For me personally, PR! and Yu Wo’s stories and characters have been a big part of my life this past decade. I wish to thank all of you, staff and readers alike, for being here and sharing this journey with me. It’s what makes it fun~
And what good news we have this month too, with a new release of Dominion’s End around the corner! Dominion’s End Volume 6 will be available for pre-order starting on December 13 and will be released on December 23. Yu Wo has mentioned that there will be a limited edition as well. It’s always great to see Yu Wo release another book!
And now, for our monthly poll. This time, we have a poll about a stand-in for Santa! This poll was submitted by anon around a year ago but a bit too late for the season. Hopefully you’re still around to see this. :) (I would also love to know why these three in particular~)
As always, we would love to hear your poll ideas over here!
Hey everyone! It was great seeing all the excitement for our new project, despite that many of you have already read it before. Or maybe that’s what makes it all the more exciting? In any case, the positive feedback provides great motivation! If you have already read EH before, please enjoy Ah Ye’s journey before No Hero once again, and if you haven’t read EH before, welcome aboard! It’s quite the journey. I’m also having a blast seeing the revision choices Yu Wo made in this 2nd edition. I challenge you to spot the differences. ;) (Please note that differences between our translation and Oddsquad’s can be due to both translation choices and to revisions made in the 2nd edition on Yu Wo’s part).
We begin No Hero Volume 8 this month! Two volumes to go, and tons more excitement to come. We have a side story for Illusions, Lies, Truth for you this month before we start the next volume. As stated last month, we’ll be taking a short break with GOD before starting the next volume. Look forward to GOD’s return! As for Dominion’s End… how was that cliffhanger last month?
This month’s poll is about the best way to kill time, submitted by ArmadaTW! Thanks once again!

Happy October everyone. We bring a ton of chapters this month, and even a new project! This month’s releases will see the completion of GODv2, ILTv3, and NHv7. Wow, three volumes concluding all at the same time, and we didn’t even plan it that way. (DE was so close to joining in on the fun, too). With each volume’s conclusion means an afterword from Yu Wo and some character introductions. Enjoy!
We will be taking a short break with GOD and ILT next month before we begin the next volumes of each, though in place of ILT’s regular release, we will have a release of an ILT side story. As for GOD, the new edition of V2 actually brings us near the end of V3 of the old edition. These new volumes sure are long! So, break time~
And now for our new project! This has been in the works for a very long time, which means we have a lot of chapters stockpiled, only awaiting proofreading and editing now. And which project might this be? It’s Eclipse Hunter!
Eclipse Hunter is the prequel to No Hero, and a favorite among many of the staff. It focuses on Ah Ye and his brother, while No Hero takes place several years later. Yu Wo first released Eclipse Hunter as a self published work before she officially published it. Many of you have probably read EH already, translated by a different group, but we hope our translation will still bring something new to the table. We do feel that “Eclipse Hunter” has become an iconic name for the series, so we will be keeping that, but the rest of our translation will be using terminology and names that match our No Hero translation. Our translation will also be based on the officially published version, while the previous translation was based on the self published version. There aren’t too many differences between the two versions, but Yu Wo does make some different word choices and revisions. She also expands on some scenes.
We hope you will enjoy this version of Eclipse Hunter, and that it will lead to further enjoyment of No Hero as well.
Last but not least, this month’s poll is about a hostile takeover of the earth, submitted by anon! As always, you can submit poll ideas here!
Look forward to all the releases!
September chapters are here~, and we are pretty much nearing the end of each current volume of these four series. Super exciting. ;)
Last month, the Ice Knight won the poll of best ice cube for hot weather (though, hm, since the generation of the Ice Knight isn’t specified, that could totally be referring to three different characters… or even more??). This month, the poll is about Sunset City’s Four Great Heroes landing in the world of the MCU, brought to you by anon. This would sure be a fun crossover~.
We would love to hear your poll ideas over here!
Yu Wo has continued to remain more of a presence this past month, and even held a lecture on writing on August 31, so we are quite hopeful that she is feeling much better.
Last but not least, we have something new (new to PR at least~) in store for you starting next month. Ah Ye fans will be in for a treat! Look forward to everything!
This month, GOD hits us with a title drop. Dun dun dun. Meanwhile, we’re about to see one of the most fight intensive chapters ever in DE.
Also, we have news! Yu Wo recently released ILT volume 5 and held an autograph session to go along with it. *throws confetti* She seems to have had a pretty bad writer’s block for quite some time and has been staying away from posting anything online. Her radio silence has been worrying, but she seems to be back. She has posted a little about what she was struggling with and thanks her readers for supporting her all these years. We hope her inspiration stays strong! (She also posted new teasers for DEv6 and 39LSKv2. Also in her teaser of ILTv5, the character Yu Shu released three books all at once. Might we see the same from Yu Wo soon?)
For those of you suffering from hot weather, wouldn’t some ice cubes be nice? I definitely would appreciate it. And if you’re not suffering from hot weather, lucky you… T__T Our poll this month from JustAPancake is about which ice cube you would prefer!
As always, you can submit poll ideas here, and we’ll be back with releases throughout the month.
ETA: We will be able to release No Hero after all. ;)
