Rejoice! For, after 8 long months of waiting, PR! is finally holding a new contest. My humble self will be hosting it, since the staff has been really busy lately (and also because I have already gotten my hands on Ice keychain which was what I was participating for in contests previously, so now I no longer really have any reason to participate lalalala).
As stated previously, the Valentine Contest will have a duration of one month from February 1st to February 28th, and its theme will be a “love letter.” Yes, the deadline is February 28th, when it ends for everyone.
Head over to the forums for more information.
Contest description: It’s simple, really… We kill the Batman. No, wait… wrong fandom, my bad. For real, all you need to do is write a love letter. The love letter must be from a character from any series created by Yu Wo, and in which they are declaring their undying love to either another character or an object *cough*. You can also choose to write a letter from a secret admirer to another character or object. Preferably, it’s fine to make us guess either the sender or the recipient, but it would be better if we could know at least one of them. Your letter can be funny, sad, or even cute, as long it’s not boring. Please keep the content of your letter in the rating of PG13, we don’t want to scar fans by killing their brain with way too mature content, right? If you’re going to be very vulgar in your letter, please try to censor yourself like the author did with Prince in ½ Prince. Your letter can be handwritten (put a good picture of it in the post) or written directly in your submission post. The limit of words you can write goes from 250 to 600.
There will be two winners chosen by the staff.
Grand Prize (first place) can choose 1 from below:
1. Snail mail from PR! including a handwritten letter, one LSK keychain and Lucathia’s autograph (limited edition).
2. Request PR! staff to sing a song of your choice. Only some staff will be available. They’ll try their best~. Good luck trying to guess whoever sang it.
(The X means there aren’t any left. Sorry.)
Runner Up Prize (second place) can choose 1 from below:
1. Request PR! Staff to sing a song of your choice. Only some staff will be available. They’ll try their best~.
2. Decide the theme and the details of the next contest held by PR!.
Regardless of what you pick as the winner of either prize, you’ll also get a shiny forum badge featuring a Gui totally enamored with Prince!
We look forward to your participation! Remember, you need to have an account on the public forums to participate.
I just wanted to let you know that I, AkaiiRia, will be in charge of the next contest held by PR! coming up in February!
The Valentine Contest will have a duration of one month from February 1st to February 28th, and its theme will be a “Love letter.”
The official announcement for the contest will be published on February 1st on both PR!’s website and on the public forum. So make sure to come take a look at it.
Happy new year everyone, by the way!
Happy New Year! Wishing everyone a great year ahead. You bet we’ll be bringing you plenty more translations in 2017. Can you believe that PR! is going to turn eight this year? Eight is quite a lucky number~.
We have one chapter each from NH, GOD, ILT, and DE this month, with lots exciting things happening in them. We’ll let you wonder at the chapter titles. If you’d like to see more of each of our projects, let’s hope that the “more staff to join PR!” wish from December’s poll actually comes true! Our translator applications are always open. Head to the Recruitment page to check that out. I thank you for thinking of us, even more than wishing for ten Dàgēs! Of course, the price for ten Dàgēs must be outrageous, so I suppose self preservation has saved us all. Joining PR! is a much less risky endeavor than wishing for ten Dàgēs.
Thanks to Listening Daisy, we have a pdf for the Illusions, Lies, Truth side story, Book Writer. Head over here to grab it.
This month’s poll is about resolutions! If you have other resolutions in mind, comment with them below~.
We are also taking monthly poll ideas. If you have a monthly poll you’d like to see happen, we’d love to hear your idea. Submit them here, and you might see your idea used in one of the monthly polls.
- No Hero V5Prologue: Prologue
- GOD V1C1: The Cunning Boy VS the Righteous Swordsman

Darn, I’ve been doing so well with getting the update post up by the 1st each month. Now the streak is broken! (It’s still the 1st… is some places!) There’s just a lot to announce this month, with some reminders to give. Hopefully next month, I’ll make it in time for the first again. Anyway, happy December. Hard to believe it’s already the end of this year.
This month, there will be no 39 releases, as we are actually now completely caught up with Legend of Sun Knight! We eagerly await the publication of 39 LSK V2. We hope it will be soon.
As of November, we have completed our translations of Magical Exchange. That concludes our translations of Romance RPG and its related side stories. \o/
Many of you have been waiting for this, and we are pleased to bring to you chapter 1 of GOD this month. We hope you enjoy this new project. Like we’ve said before, this is one of Yu Wo’s earlier works, but you can see a lot of her ideas and themes that she revisits in later works. She has been releasing a revised version of GOD in recent years, and that is the version we are working from.
We now have 4 volumes of No Hero done, and we embark on V5 this month with the prologue. You’ll also be seeing a translation of a draft of V4 that Yu Wo has shared on her blog. She had written a good chunk of the draft with fairly different events playing out before she decided it wasn’t working, and then she rewrote it completely. It’s fairly interesting to see what she had planned before the change~
Thanks to EliSan, we have an updated version of the epub for the Legend of Sun Knight side stories, which now includes side stories 1-19. You can find that here.
Next, it saddens us that there have been other sites copying and pasting our translations. Please know that we have not given ANYONE permission to distribute or modify any content from our site, and it disappoints us to see our rules disregarded. Our content is to stay only on our site, as we have a strict agreement with Yu Wo especially in the regards of ads/donations/revenue making. We DO NOT ask for donations, and we do not use any ads on our site. Please know that sites that are stealing our translations are both stealing our hard work and going against our agreement with Yu Wo, which could affect the permission granted to us to continue translating. As a reader, you can help by NOT using such sites. If you see our translations posted anywhere else, please know that they do not have our permission, and if they have a comment system, let readers who are using the site to read Yu Wo’s works know that if they wish to see the translations continue, they should avoid reading the translations there. Thank you!
According to November’s poll, it seems that many of you would like to borrow Aldrizzt’s mage clothes if you were to forget your own. How nice of Aldrizzt! I hope he has many spares. Carol’s red cloak was a close second. Surprisingly, Roland’s Hell Knight oufit was third. Are you all sure you want to wear a leotard? You can see the rest of the results here.
This month’s poll is about wishes! Happy December!

In November, we’re wrapping up both 39 Legend of Sun Knight v1 and No Hero v4. Enjoy the extras and Yu Wo’s author notes! As for the Book Writer extra, it includes cool tidbits about things such as Jiang Ziya’s class schedule, his route to school, what clothes he wears, etc. Our Magical Exchange Short Story this month, “Tomato Beef Soup Saves the World,” will be the last part of Magical Exchange, as it is the last completed story of the series that we have come across. This completes our translation of Romance RPG and Magical Exchange. We hope you have enjoyed the journey.
It seems that Grisia won October’s poll by quite a bit. He is quite useful to have around if there’s a zombie-like creature in your yard, huh? I wonder how he’d fare in the Dominion’s End world! Grisia came in first in the poll, followed by Lesus, Jiang Shuyu, our very own raylight who even triumphed against the mighty Dàgē, Jiang Shutian, Lu Yang, and Jiang Ziya. Lucky Jiang Ziya. I’m sure he doesn’t want to be around when there’s a zombie-like creature.
The poll question this month is about clothes!
