A Very Late Update

Greetings,

For anyone who follows or visits, it’s time I gave an explanation for my inactivity.

First, I apologize for readers who have been patiently waiting for my translation. I mentioned in past posts about my health, in truth 2 years ago I was diagnosed with ALS or Lou Gherig’s disease, for those who are familiar with it, the disease is debillitating and most often terminal because there is no known cure currently. My progress with translation has been slowed considerably due to this.

Secondly, I am still translating albeit slowly, I don’t mind if another tler wants to tl this LN due to my speed and ongoing health issues but I will continue to tl.

Lastly, I am trying to get enough money to purchase a new laptop, my current one is old with no webcam to make use of assistive technologies like eye gaze for me type faster and not get so tired typing.

Tentative Plans

Greetings,
I’m not sure how many visitors I still get due to my apparent deadness. I am thinking about resuming translation where the anime stopped. Here’s the issue though, Vol. 6 is where the anime stopped (this also explains why the anime was such a mess, 2 eps per volume? Who does that?) which means Vol. 7 is about the past. What do you people who still visit think?

Info

Hi everyone,
I have begun translating again, currently doing around one-two pages a day, eventually I hope to get back to about 5 pages a day. There’s roughly 56 pages left for me to translate in chapter 3.

Updates and Miscellaneous

Hi all,
First of all I would like to thank everyone for being extremely patient with me for my slow translation speed. My health has not been the best for the past 10 months.

Secondly, before I try to pick up my pace on translating again I have to buy another laptop, the original HDD in this very old laptop died, thankfully I had another one and replaced it but the replacement one makes a very loud click every so often which means that one is going to die soon as well, I’ve been looking around on ebay for a replacement so hopefully I can get one soon.

Why am looking for a laptop instead of just buying a new HDD you wonder? Because the one I’m using is very old. To give you an idea it’s got a Core 2 Duo processor, 3 GB of DDR2 RAM, original HDD was only 500 GB, the ethernet card is only a 10/100 and runs Windows 7.

If any of you have a suggestion on what I should look for as a replacement, feel free to comment.

Thinking about picking another LN up…

Greetings,
Now before you all ask why and say I shouldn’t because I’m slow with translating Mahou Sensou I think this LN I’m thinking about deserves a translation and nobody seems to be willing to tl it.

What is this LN you ask? The name of the LN is Grancrest Senki. From what I’ve read and seen of its anime adaptation, it has piqued my interest and is interesting. Here’s the summary:

On a continent ruled by chaos, the Lords have the power of a Crest (holy seal) that can calm the chaos and protect the people. However, before anyone realizes it, the rulers cast aside their creed of purifying the chaos, and instead start to fight each other for each other’s Crests to gain dominion over one another. Siluca, an isolated mage who scorns the Lords for abandoning their creed, and a wandering knight named Theo, who is on a journey to train to one day liberate his hometown, make an everlasting oath to work together to reform this continent dominated by wars and chaos.

Btw, the author is the one who wrote Record of Lodoss Wars and Rune Soldier Louie, Ryo Mizuno if you’re familiar with those, there’s currently 9 volumes, while I have raws for 1-4 I would still need 5-9.

Also, I am still translating Mahou Sensou albeit slowly, when I get a surge of motivation a large chunk will be translated.
