Announcement! New Project, hot and steaming!

Hi there guys, Reigokai here!

So, what you have been waiting…hopefully. The announcement of the new project! —But first! I would like to get some points cleared out before that.

Let me be honest here, I read A LOT of stories before deciding. I read the suggestions and swam on my own at syosetsu.

Let me talk about the latter first. The amount of trash was beyond belief. I am sorry about saying this of others’ creations, but that’s how I felt while I was wasting away reading them all. I felt like this was a futile expedition, and at the same time, felt renewed respect towards the translators that find gems. And I once again understood just how lucky I was when I blind-picked Tsuki ga Michibiku.
Now, I might have missed some gems there, since if I were given only 10 chapters of Tsuki and had to decide if to translate it, let me be honest, I wouldn’t have. So some of them might have become a lot deeper than I expected.

Now, onto the first one, and most likely, the one you cared about the most. Your suggestions.

There were an incredible amount of suggestions, and of that, I am truly grateful. I checked them out and bookmarked some even. But these are the points that made most of them hard to pick:
1. Only source is light novel. I want to steer clear from that area, mainly because of legal issues.
2. The web novel raw had at least 1 year of hiatus. Ironic, I know.
3. Some were already being translated? Uhmm…thanks for adding to my bookmarks.
4. Alphapolis changing their policies. Apparently, alphapolis has now implemented the ‘pay to read’. First few chapters are free, but the next ones, you have to pay. Also, you can’t copy+paste there anymore (and I don’t know how to get around that).
5. And the most important, personal preference 🙂

Now, with all that out of the way, I will announce the new project! *drum roll*

 


World Reformation activities of the Dark God — Loving humans so much, I reincarnated in one —


Entropy.jpg

Synopsis:

At the genesis of the world, the ‘Dark God Entropy’ was defeated in the fight between the five other Gods, and was sealed.
And then, after 1,600 years, the seal of the God of Darkness was released and he is liberated. The God that was now free didn’t really have any special intent for revenge and didn’t have anything to do, so he decided to reincarnate as a human and enjoy the life of a human being.
The human that had obtained the soul of the Dark God and was born was ‘Kuromiya Haine’, a human that -while being human- possesses the powers and memories of the God of Darkness. The strongest existence.

While saving the heroes that fight monsters, and fighting against the other Gods that are trying to rule the humans, he acts in order to make the world a better place.


 

Yes, this is the new project! I have read 110 chapters of it, and I gotta say, the story has a lot of action, and the interactions between characters is one of my favorite parts of it.

Some may ask, ‘But Reigokai! He is not a Japanese person, and there’s no summoning or that kind of stuff! Aren’t you an Isekai translator? And what about Truck-sama?!’.
Yeah, there’s no Japanese person, and no summoning, but what I am looking for is not a transported MC to an Isekai, it is to transport you to an Isekai.
And whenever we read an Isekai story, Truck-sama runs over us and sends us to an Isekai. He is always by your side, waiting.

Also, special thanks to Raizu for recommending this and many other titles!

A close second was Sayonara Ryuusei Konnichiwa Jinsei.
But this fell in the points 4 and 5. Maybe in the future, when the point 4 is solved! (No, time machine is just a temporary one, and not one that actually solves it)

Estimated time of post will be starting next week.

I hope you guys stick along in this new journey to a new Isekai.

Isekai e Youkoso!

      1. Truck-kun remember to always look both ways when crossing a road in order to find a fresh protagonist.

          1. I miss the one and only, original “Truck”
            There’s a bunch of impostors these days, truck-kun, truck-sama, truck-dono, truck-san, truck-chan, truck-tan, truck-niichan, truck-neechan, so on and so on, sigh….
            ” O Truck, Truck, wherefore art thou Truck?”

          2. Ehehe… actually, I’m the one using all of these names, simultaneously in different site. One time, I use different Truck names in the same comment page.
            It’s came with a price. I had to put pieces of my soul in different horcrux.

          3. Oh! Philosophical question for the multi-Horcruxer!

            The horcrux is supposed to split your soul, correct? How do the proportions work in that scenario?
            And does repeated creation of them mean your soul’s proportion will eventually be highest in the first horcrux you make?
            Most importantly, if so, does having less of your soul than something else have any side effects at all?

          4. One key point that you must remember first (before I go through the horcrux thingamajig) is that the ‘soul’ isn’t something tangible with physical form that we can distinguish. You cannot see or count it or measure it in normal unit measurement (like 1, 2, 3 souls or 100g of soul or 1/3 of a soul). Which is why, you don’t get less amount of soul for each part that you divide.

            Now I’ll give you the truth about the universe, or not.
            *whisper*Our soul is made of ‘light’, or should I say it originates from it.*whisper*

            Light is a form of electromagnetic energy that travels through space as a wave. Like microwaves and x-rays, those waves have a wavelength and a frequency. The difference is that humans possess receptors able to sense energy with wavelengths between 400 and 700 nm and turn it into images. Our soul that originates from the ‘light’ is presumably at the wavelengths that we cannot perceive. Yes, we can measure light by lumens per square meter (lux) but that is only for wavelengths that we have discovered, humans have yet to discover the wavelength of the light that preceed soul.

            Now on to the next topic. Can you harness light? Yes. Because light is ultimately the varying wavelengths that come from different surface temperature. In other word, you harness heat and convert to energy. Can you divide it? Yes and No. You cannot divide it in physical form but you can split the wavelengths, like prism. The theory goes, you can split the light that originates soul, find the exact wavelength that gives birth to life and capture/absorb the energy in a suitable container. As long you have it in your posession and tune it with your unique wavelength, you can reproduce the same wavelength over and over again (a.k.a rebirth or immortality).

            I’m not an expert in this either. A friend who had no nose figures it out himself and give me a sample. I still use the sample product till this day.

          5. That’s all well and good, but I’m still not quite convinced.

            Mainly, even if it’s not in the same tangible way as mass, energy is still finite. A fire on a torch can only emit a finite amount of joules before it burns out. You can spread this same fire to something else like a candle or a fireplace, but that means adding in wax or wood as fuel sources that weren’t part of the original body of energy.

            You can copy your signature and patterns over to other things as much as you want, but unless you fuel these data storages with a source of energy that this pattern can specifically use in a way that matches the soul portions, the “quantity” of your soul stays the same.

            …Oh shit. Doesn’t this actually bring up a Theseus’s Paradox phenomenon when you have a soul that’s using the precise signature and wavelength of a soul, but 100% of a new source of energy? At that point, is that even the original soul?
            Or, from another perspective, if you unraveled the patterns of an existing soul and rearranged it to match that of another soul, whose soul is it? If the former and latter scenarios existed simultaneously involving the same pattern, which one would be the genuine soul?

          6. The one weird thing about energy is that it is actually near infinite, if we look at it from a larger perspective. When you burn a torch, the flame fades out when it’s fuel source is depleted, correct? But that doesn’t mean that the energy is gone! It changes form to a different kind of energy/matter. This is how physics explain it. For example, the energy that was dormant in the firewood you used changed to flame that produces heat and lumination. The heat in turn gives energy for cells of living creatures near the flame to produce substances that the body need. It is later used as energy to live and move. It’s a huge cycle of transformation! Which is why you can say that every living thing on earth actually originates and benefit from the energy produced by the sun! WE originated from the sunlight ! (Of course, water played a vital role in giving birth to physical lifeform)

          7. … (continue from previous post)
            So, you understand now that energy is near immortal. It just changes shape (without the sunlight we are nothing in the first place).

            Next, remember also that light travels in all direction. But only the portion of the light that reaches our world/planet changes into living form (you, me, my cat, your lunch, everything on earth). When the light’s wavelength (that becomes the component of our soul) got distrupted/cut off from the source, the wavelength changes into another wave or form. In other word, our soul changed. Ascended (a.k.a we die). We never truly die, because our soul just changes form…

            Now, to be truly immortal one would need to keep the wavelength inside their physical vessel at all times uninterupted.. or just make sure it doen’t stop. Scientifically, that is impossible to do due to external factors. Unless…

            … you use the occult (ancient) knowledge and apply it like Voldemo.. I mean, my noseless friend did. The act of killing another people; you actually forcefully remove the person’s wavelength from the physical vessel. The force that occured when you forcefully remove another person’s wavelength from the light of life is like a bomb. The perpetrator will also be caught in the blowback with the same amount of force. This force is not enough to kill you but enough to temporarily connect/send your wavelength across space and dimension; to a different place, the direction where the light never reached Earth and gave form to life. But the light there is the same component as in our world too, where you will find the wavelength that is the same as yours (but one which never evolves to become the human you).
            Volder… I mean my friend, found one similar to his and brought it back, keep it in a container that is most related to his memories (the ones with most similar wavelength with himself). THAT is the horcrux.

            You know, the way the occult/magic explained it is that the act of killing will torn/shreds the killer’s soul. It’s not true. Our soul is already dispersed in all direction, never in one place. Never a singular form. We are many but we are also one with each other in the prism of light. Which is why we cannot count the soul. Only a part of the wavelength becomes our human body. The rest? They are in other direction. In space! Or in other dimension! Believe me. Science, my brother, is more similar to the occult, just the explanation are a bit different.

            While Volderm.. , I mean my noseless friend, found the explanation through magic, I find the explanation with science. He found the way to temporarily reach other locations of the rest of light wavelength (the ether where no life form emerge) through murder and use the dispersed wavelength to reach faux immortality.
            I , on the other hand, use a more scientific method to reach other dimensions (where the same light wavelength found suitable world and gave birth to other life forms. That. Is. The multiverse. My brother).

          8. I…what? Sorry, you’ve slightly lost me. Something about your explanation kept making my brain disconnect while reading, textbook style.

            From what I gather though, you’re saying that all souls are radiating their wavelengths constantly, and by “breaking” this wavelength’s presence in another person’s body you gain the energy needed to imprint your own signature in something else.

            Is that from detonating the other soul’s wavelengths in a general omnidirectional wave of force, or simply unraveling it to wring out the energy? This is pretty important since the former implies that multiple people could perform a horcrux of a single person if the conditions are right, and the latter implies that alternative sources of energy can theoretically be used as long as they’re released in the correct form.

            I was under the assumption that every soul has a unique, though only in minute details, signature that defines “who” that soul is. Is that not the case? Because my question is when you overwrite the wavelength of one soul with one of another, where the amount of energy stays the same but the arrangement is changed.

            And speaking of the amount of energy, while energy is eternal as far as we know, that doesn’t mean souls can be as a result. The whole problem with the transfer of energy is that there will always be some lost in the process of changing forms. When you burn fuel in a fire, the total energy doesn’t change, but it’s divided up into heat, light, and possibly radiation or electricity-and all of these are themselves scattered in hard-to-control ways.
            This is exactly the issue described by the Second Law of Thermodynamics(MY NEMESIS!!! ༼ಠ益ಠ༽୨) .

            This isn’t exactly a point to refute yours since it only makes sense you’d need to tap into a whole other soul’s potential energy-if anything, it only makes using just one soul a pretty impressive feat. I just wanted to add that point to yours about energy being virtually infinite.

          9. “Because my question is when you overwrite the wavelength of one soul with one of another, where the amount of energy stays the same but the arrangement is changed.”
            Yes. Overwriting doesn’t produce energy, it would change the property instead. It would become something else. Our identities or life memories are just minute details that can be added. Like a small patch update. The main thing will likely be unchanged.

            You have to unravel them to harnes the… Uh… (this is where I act like I’m innocent).
            I don’t know what you’re talking about. Well, if you’re referring to the possible use of this method to harness near infinite energy, then I must disagree with you. DON’T ever think if using the methodology or even anything related to soul to harness energy. Whether it is for a good or a bad cause, the end result will always be a tragedy.
            Remember Full Metal Alchemist ?
            We don’t want genocide in the name of ‘science’ for a fake philosopher stone.

          10. Now I can answer your last questions.
            The soul rewritten with new wavelength will become new soul? Is it the the same or completely different?

            No. You silly. If different wavelength, it’s already not soul. It could be x-ray.. lol
            One wavelength only. But you can tune it to fit your identity or memories. Like writing on a blank slate. Voldermo.. I mean my friend, tune it with his chosen items that contains pieces of his memories. The horcrux.
            Pieces of memories only. Not whole memory like our brain. That is why the reincarnated ones was… less humanlike. But make no mistake. It IS the same soul. All soul are the same, this it is no different than the original. It is the original.

            No more than one can exist in the same place at one time. If you try, it will cancel each other. Reincarnation will mot happen.

          11. I was reading your intellectual discussion, but alas it was to intellectual so i skimmed through the discussion, and I have come to a simple to understand conclusion, a truck has no soul(main reason it runs over people,)therefore the laws of the soul don’t apply to it, just keep running people over so we can have more light novels and web novels to read ,’:^)

          12. I know that I don’t have a heart.
            … but I still have a soul !
            It’s here in the horcrux.
            Wait, where did I put it just now…
            Eh? Where??

            Where is my horcrux !?
            Where is my soul !?

            NOOOOOOO…. !!!

          13. Hmm…since the Theseus Paradox is already out there, we might as well bring it up again.

            If Truck-kun has parts replaces over time, changing out piece by piece as it goes through the wear and tear of ramming into people at full speed time driving until every single part has been replaced, then is it still the same Truck-kun as before?
            Or is it just an excellent replacement that neither incarnation is any wiser of?
            Conversely, if someone took all the old parts and built up a whole Truck from them, which one is the genuine article?

          14. Well, if the engine is still intact, I’m still Truck-kun. Change the engine and you won’t see me anymore. It’s another guy already replacing me.

          15. Tune in next time as we discuss the existential philosophy of doors!

            Is a door’s fundamental purpose to open, or to stay closed?!

      2. Why not* both?

        … damn it, I typed too quickly and hit post comment without checking if I had made a typo… lel
        (I would really like to be able to edit my comments…)

  1. Ty, 1 question harem? And herbivore mc or normal/not dense as a brick wall. That’s what I’m most interested in

    1. Not dense at all. He is definitely pretty direct about things.
      Harem. 2 people as of now, so I don’t know if that enters in your harem category.

      1. Thanks for the fast reply, also thank goodness honestly I can’t wait until Makato finally makes his harem of Tomoe and Mio

  2. lol bypassing the copypasta block is annoyingly simple…

    most typical methods of blocking copy paste is either javascript or css3. if you use a script-blocker plugin on your browser that may be enough to stop the block working, not sure about the css3 method as far as details go but that’s also a solvable issue, just means a bunch of prep work ahead of time.

    that said, looking forward to your next project, sounds special 😉

    1. The easiest solution to any HTML blocking text is: right click > view page source > copy raw text from the source

      1. believe it or not, but viewing page source can also be disabled. and an easy solution to that is to have the text held within a protected sector that doesn’t just load text, apply a font and then position it on the screen.

        for example displaying it as an image in a java applet. then you have to use your own hands to re-type it all, or use an image parser to rip text from the image.

        heck, if the whole site is put up in a coded form, there would only be limited html at all and all the content would be within the software that’s used to display it.

  3. Really wanted Sayonara Ryuusei Konnichiwa Jinsei but this seems to be interesting. With 110 chapters that is gonna be a good long journey. (hopefully)

      1. Welp. Four days?
        Even the author is as consistent as Reigokai ?

        I have a feeling that I’m going to waste a big part of my life here.
        Please let it be good.

    1. It’s not there *yet* because novel updates is a fan made site that compiles novels that are being translated/have been translated, not those that have yet to be translated.

      1. I have a question. Does Novel Updates also compile original non-japanese stories written by random light/web novel fans? Obviously, I’m talking about stories that have this Japanese feeling.

  4. I look forward to reading the new project. It looks like fun!

    Thanks for wading through so many other novels to find a particularly promising one!

  5. Thank u always for ur great work…
    ^^…

    — And what about Truck-sama?!’. —
    Sorry Truck-san, ur turn didn’t come this time…
    XD…

    This one seems good, another twist start to enjoy the story…
    :3…

  6. Copy/paste restriction can be bypassed with blocking Javascript.
    But this option will be annoying for some websites (doesn’t always work), but seems to work on Alphapolis (For the time being…)

    1. Yeah, I heard about that one when I was researching how to block the Patreon scammers from copy+pasting my content. But I decided against doing any countermeasures cause it would only cause more harm than good.

      Anyways, there’s also the part about paying.
      I would have to go through 50+ chapters minimum before deciding. That’s a gamble I don’t want to take when I already had a good candidate.

    2. No, you don’t need to bypass Javascript.

      I have test on my PC and it is simple. The principle is “copy directly from source code, not from rendered page”. In chrome, open the page you want to copy, then press ctrl+u to open the source code. You can easily find what you want there. It may contain some word/symbol that not relate to the text you need (mostly html code), but it easy to delete that.

      By the way, thank you for the new project, it seem promising.

  7. Waaaaaai~!

    It’s here! Looks fucking good! I’m psyched to see where a synopsis like this goes, and apparently character interactions are good, which is all I can ask of a novel meant to fill the gaping hole Tsukiga is gonna leave in my heart.
    Although the Isekai point needs a perspective shift, it seems like both novels still have a theme of “gods challenging gods” though.

    And holy cow, I totally forgot to comment on that part. Reigokai managed to land this great gem of a story from an admittedly large mine of mostly dirt(trash) and lapis lazuli ore(trash that’s only potentially useful).
    That’s some Makoto-grade luck right there. Or is it Iroha-grade? Hard to say…

    1. I’m also really “psyched” to read this one. (I see what did there, “psychcronia”).
      By the way, I like how the God of Darkness looks Lovecraftian in the picture.^^ Let’s say he’s an Elder God(since it doesn’t seem like he’s against humans).

  8. So… I no longer exist, Reigo-senpai?

    Meh, Raizu has more of a pull than I ever did. Still, I’m sad that it’s not Janitor-san, that is one damn good novel. And it’s a web novel too. Then again… I’ve been having the strangest luck lately.

    Now to everyone else, Spoiler-san won’t be around to give spoilers!!! This is a reminder, but Spoiler-san was born from my impatience with wanting to read ahead and the patience it did take to read Tsuki ga Michibiku through Google Translate. I’m not gonna read ahead on this one, especially since the site with the raws is going on a payment model soon. So sorry, the only time you all will be seeing Spoiler-san is when he’s being an anti-Nepu.

    1. That’s not true.
      I did check it and decided after. It is definitely not because of the individuals that suggested but because of my own personal preferences.

      1. For the record, I was kidding about Raizu’s pull. Still, I am looking forward to this next novel. And yeah… I actually liked Sayonara Ryuusei as well, though I mainly read the manga. All I can say is good luck.

    2. Eehh… since you guys mention Raizu and Nepu, I’ll tell you that I accidentally hit them on the way here.

      They’re fine. Don’t worry.

      Probably…

    1. The m.c is already a (dark) god.
      Soooo OP.
      Will there be a cult worshipping him?
      Some shady cult, trying to shadily recruit new cult members. Like certain Aqua cult. You know…

      1. Looks like it’s not your the one is by our hearts…
        It’s Truck-“sama”….
        COPYRIGHT COPYED FROM TRUCK-KUN!!
        Sad…SO SAD… T-T
        Better Luck next time, Truck~kun~

      2. Yeah, I just saw him the other day,
        Truck-sama came out of no way and just randomly hit people, either its Spoiler-san or not.
        But luckily, I let him seduce Reigokai-san so that he won’t go on rampage any longer~
        All is well and happy~
        And that’s how he came btw.

      3. Is that why Reigokai is now steering truck-sama’s wheels, ready to hit us all into this new translation’s world?

  9. “Truck-sama runs over us and sends us to an Isekai. He is always by your side, waiting.”

    I don’t know whether to be glad or be horrified on what Truck-sama will do to us.

    1. Don’t worry, Reigokai already said that I will have no role this time.
      … just the occasional passing by, that’s all.

      (Btw, I hate Kaibaman. Suddenly summoning Blue Eyes at no cost, ruining my strategies. I will get you one day.)

  10. Uguu… you mention me twice, but it seems that I will have no role in this Isekai. Well, my aim is only to find Spoiler-san, whom I believe will pop up again… or someone else taking up the devil’s mantle.

    Anyhow, thank you Reigokai !
    I will enjoy the new serie to the last and you have my full support (I don’t have monies but .. you know.. spiritual support).

    I wish you good luck in your new undertakings and take care.

    😁

  11. The cover art looks nice and the premise sounds nice too. This is the first time I ever heard about this web novel and I haven’t even read it yet but I’m already giving 10/10. Awesome work! Can’t wait to start reading it.

  12. Looking forward to the new story, it seems interesting. It kind of reminds me of the death mage doesn’t want a fourth time, which is pretty good btw. The same theme of a character choosing to live his life well instead of pursuing revenge.

  13. This really looks promising~
    I’m so gonna follow you, my bruther~
    I can’t WAIT to read this~ /slur

    …..This is gonna be DIAMOND!! BWAHAHAHAHAHA!!~*cough cough*…Erk…

  14. “Yeah, there’s no Japanese person, and no summoning, but what I am looking for is not a transported MC to an Isekai, it is to transport you to an Isekai.”

    me: Smooth Reigokai strikes again! x’D

    “And whenever we read an Isekai story, Truck-sama runs over us and sends us to an Isekai. He is always by your side, waiting.”

    me: Truck-sama~~~~!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :´D

  15. I gotta say, this look pretty promising from what I’ve read you say in the comments, but I still gotta ask you this: When are you gonna start releasing chapters for it? I’m fairly certain this doesn’t have a NovelUpdates page either, at least one I could find easily.

    A non-dense harem MC? The Strongest God screwing the other Gods over? Oh man! THIS IS GONNA BE GLORIOUS!

      1. Vacation ! Where to Reigokai ?
        Not that I’m going to where you are, just want to know.
        So, which country? What state? City? Travel route?

        *check map*

    1. 28th00, it’s normal that it isn’t on Novel Updates *yet* since that’s a fan made site that compiles novels that are being/have been translated, not those that have yet to be translated.

  16. Oh! glad you picked one that seemed so interesting!
    guess I also have to thanks Raizu for finding such a gem!
    looking forward to your translations!!

  17. Seems interesting.
    BTW, the post title made me think you had mass produced meat buns.

    Hmm…
    Where is our local talking meat bun?

    1. He was eaten by our one and only ohmariowv.
      He was hunting nepus, but coincidentally encounter meatbun-san, by the road side, and ate him only to resume search nepus again.
      Poor meatbun-san, may he be by our side to deliver more meatbun on our way~
      I was wondering, was it delicious?

    2. meat buns? you’re lucky to think about that from the title.
      when I make something “hot and steaming”, I flush it away…

  18. “And what about Truck-sama?!”

    The important question right there …they’re always lurking in the comment waiting to strike!

    (Theory: Reikogai is the real boss of Truck-sama.)

    1. Shhh! Don’t bring too much attention to yourself! And don’t say that theory aloud!


      *whisper*
      (They might hear you)

  19. This looks rad, and I’m excited for it but my first thought was –
    ” Oh god, why would you hold your sword like that? “

      1. She’s holding it too close to the guard and the overly decorated guard would interfere when she swings. On a normal sword, it won’t matter much, but with that sword, the wing like guard will obstruct her hand.

      2. She also has her arm rotated so far outward that the blade’s pommel is resting on her opposite hip joint. A hit to the side of the blade facing you would wrench the blade out of her hand. It also means her ONE piece of wacky fantasy armor is restricting her already limited potential range of movement. The ergonomics of the sword itself are pretty bad too, as reaper pointed out. The way the hilt’s shaped more or less forces you to choke up on the overly elaborate guard.

        1. Hmm. I have to wonder. Is there any fantasy fiction sword design that isn’t overshadowed by historical designs?

          In fact, what sort of magic effects would have to be applied to a sword for incredibly impractical designs like these to work?

          1. Well, for fantasy swords, if the problem is weight/size it can be accounted for to some extent(though it still wouldn’t moved as efficient as a smaller blade since the area is covers in the air makes it slower due to physics).
            On the other hand, if the problem is the one seen in the sword from this picture, then no, magic won’t make it viable either.

          2. I mean, I guess it could be usable if the sword shot flames or other magic, but at that point, you might as well make it a wand.

            What about a healing effect? Doesn’t seem like it’ll do much good if the sword is so unwieldy you’re realistically killed quickly or get the sword knocked out of your hands.

            Physical spec reinforcement, perhaps? But to what degree?

          3. Well, even physical reinforcement effects fro the user wouldn’t matter much since the issue partly lies with the structure of a humanoid arm/hand. In such a manner, it is almost guaranteed for the weapon to be knocked out of the user’s hand, and it is also almost guaranteed for the wrist to be broken. For the wrist being broken thing, that’s what would happen IRL, but even in fantasy setting it would still happen since it’s not just endurance, but rather strength(of both the user and the enemy) that matters more. Even if the endurance is high enough, it would still be dislocated at the very least, and that would be fatal in mid-combat. The cause for that, in short, is due to both your own strength and momentum added to those of the enemy that all focus on the wrist, breaking it and throwing the weapon out of hand.

    1. I would say because she isn’t fighting?
      she isn’t taking a stance, she is just standing with her sword.
      I agree that the 2 wings hinder her movements
      the right hand is supposed to grap under the hilt, like she does. maybe the thumb is off, would be better to have it on the grip or blade.
      the pommel doesn’t look like it’s “resting on her opposite joint”, but more in face of her body, and look like it would be easy to grap with the left hand to take a battle stance
      I don’t think the hilt is that much wrong, it feel like a waisted grip (or a tapered grip? don’t know)

  20. way to copy raw japanese text from alphapolis on google chrome press f12 select sources select novel/(some number) scroll down to around like 110-120 look for this “div class=”text ” id=”novelBoby”” copy all text until “user/login?url=(some number)” copy to something like wordpress new post html format and it will just show the text needed

  21. dont really care what u pick tbh regio sama, i just want to read ur translation tbh hahahahaha.. please take care of us in the future too 🙂

  22. Eh, Sayonara Ryussei was good? I remember going like 2-3 chapters in and I just couldn’t take the horrible writing anymore…

    1. Eh, are you sure you are talking the same novel?
      Hmm…
      Might be personal preference difference I guess….

  23. A reincarnated dark god saving some heroes’ asses? Sounds good! I’m hyped~
    I hope this god is not like Makoto… I read all of your translated chapters because of Tomoe, Mio, and the other characters like Shiki and their interaction amongst themselves. Makoto is… not my favorite kind of character, honestly.
    But the MC being a dark god gets my hopes up. More so if you say the interactions amongst characters’ good! Hopefully, I’ll be on a hell of a long ride again. Thanks Reigokai (〜 ̄▽ ̄)〜

  24. Typical cliche story TBH, for isekai genre there’s no twist at all… and now it depend on the character, i just hope MC isn’t trying to hiding his power or dense motherfucker..I mean, if you make your MC OP, why would you bother hide it? Take example of Makoto, Rudeus Greyrat or Ainz..

    1. Well from a writing perspective, having a single OP character do nothing but be strong would be boring.

      From a personal perspective, being strong means you get roped into all sorts of trouble, so you’d want to avoid showing off unless you intend to take responsibility(or rather, have it thrust upon you) for some large world-affecting faction/event/etc.

    2. I agree with Psychronia.
      Also, about Ainz. He doesn’t actually “hide” his power. When he does so, it’s for a specific objective that makes sense(either infiltration or to give a false sense of security to a strong opponent(aka Shalltear). As for other situations, he’s either challenging himself by giving himself restrictions in what he can use(ex: to get better with swords and close combat), or he does so in order to regulate himself. For example, while he wants to show his overwhelming power, he still wants to unite the world/nations around him. This is why he hid the fact that he could use “Ia Shub-Niggurath” repeatedly without consequence(though with intervals between uses) and quite easily. He doesn’t want to rule only fear, and he doesn’t want the nations to make a desperate stand to the death against him, so he just showed overwhelming power, with (fake) limitations that don’t make him any weaker, but instead make it so that they don’t think he can genocide entire countries in mere moments.

      My last point would be how when he fights, he doesn’t use his strongest spells because he instead use the minimum power needed to still absolutely win.
      In short, it’s not that he holds back or hide his power, but more so that he doesn’t go “too” overkill. He only uses the right amount needed for his objectives. (and it lets him keep his numbers of “spell uses per day” for his best spells in case he ends up needing them)

      1. …Huh. I never realized what an apt analogy Paper Mario:Sticker Star was for an OP character limiting themselves to only exerting the appropriate amount of force.

        You’re always using overly abundant items that are way too strong for ordinary encounters, causing you to perpetually feel like you’re wasting power overkilling things and it’s boring and awful.

    3. wait, I just realized that I’m not sure about what you meant in your comment anymore. Do you mean that an OP mc should be like Ainz in the choice of power usage, or do you mean that Ainz is an example of an MC that hides his power?

      Same question for Makoto(since he technically still hold back when fighting and still hide his magic power to the point where people who look at him think he he weak, I’m not sure about which you mean).

      As for Rudeus, I just looked the name up, and I haven’t read Mushoku Tensei yet, so I don’t know.

    4. in mahouka koukou no rettousei, there was a serious and definitely legit reason for Tatsuya (the aforementioned ln’s mc) to hide his power. more than one in fact. 1: he was a literal military secret himself. 2: he held power that could NOT be replicated to begin with. 3: he was still a student even though he was so op of a person, to name a few of those reasons.

      1. oh and people still attempted to replicate his ability, even though it couldn’t be done via magic, like his power was doing. he literally made a nuclear bomb blast with no fallout. The USA equivalent of mahouka koukou no rettousei’s world tried, thinking it was a black hole type phenomena, and technically blew a hole in reality creating bodyless souls, it seems, which those took control of some of their magicians who were apparently high ranking. This is why you don’t fuck with things you don’t understand to put it simply lol.

  25. Ok might worth try reading since I’m not much into already God mc .
    Also look forward for new chapter of Double Edge Hero since Tsuki ga is on the cliff might as well have something to look forward to.

    Also at last finally could comment with wordpress account that using my fb user all the time commenting in some chapter
    And finally get some update quick……
    Despite being otherworlder I keeping jumping or get lost from one to another despite not getting hit by a truck and seeing some wild nepu as well (Kamusta fellow Filipino) …..

  26. Hey Reigokai long time lurker here, just wanted to say thanks for all the chapters. Also I am really looking forward to this new web novel!

  27. I proppose that now that you are starting this new project, whenever a new character appears, that someone makes something like a wikia, with characters names, first appearences, and pictures (fanmade or not). It happens so often that i forget who is who.
    Btw is there a Reigokai discord?

  28. Wow, the picture and synopsis looks interesting. I am looking forward for your translation Reigokai-san.

  29. “Aren’t you an Isekai translator? And what about Truck-sama?!’.
    Yeah, there’s no Japanese person, and no summoning, but what I am looking for is not a transported MC to an Isekai, it is to transport you to an Isekai.”

    Rei-sama CONFIRMED AS TRUCK-KUN’S DRIVER!!

    Warmly waiting for next week then, cheers.

  30. Actually the Introduction of this is a lot promising than Tsuki ga.. though the part I hope the author of this considers multi povs and indepth character development and visualization like Tsuki..

    Now the waiting game begins again..

  31. Sounds promising. Well, we’ll leave it up to you. Hope to see some chapters soon. My NU reading list isnt getting as many updates as it used to.

    Also; sure truck-san isn’t strictly necessary, but lets show our utmost respect. Just in case. Just in case.

  32. “And whenever we read an Isekai story, Truck-sama runs over us and sends us to an Isekai. He is always by your side, waiting.”

    Thats deep.

  33. This seems interesting. Since you’ve read it and put a synopsis below, I can say that you have a good taste in Isekai novels. The synopsis is able to take my interest and I can’t wait for you to begin.

    Let me ask first, so the MC is the God of Darkness but he lost against the other gods and then reincarnated as a human. Does the background have the adventurer kind of thing where he would join an adventure guild, raise his rank or he got involved in the political turmoil between countries ?

  34. This looks interesting.
    Ironic about how there is a good dark god.
    Hmmmm…………………….

      1. i think so, the PoV n sidestories in yoshi and zenithnovel project (but i think its kinda low on patreon for sponsored chapter and Yoshi kinda focus on patreon for Kuro No Maou)

  35. Well it is indeed interesting, I am eagerly waiting for your work on it. Now thank God you went blinde with Tsuki it would be a great loss for us, Truck-kun never worry you are always with us in spirit, just please don’t run us over physically.

    1. In our SOUL, not HEART.
      It’s not deep enough, Truck-sama is in our heart but Truck-kyun on our soul.
      Heart we can remember but soul…we just have to wait for it to come…
      Bring It On Truck-kun~

  36. Thank you for choosing such an interesting sounding novel, but above that, thank you for taking the time to filter through tons of excrements (to avoid just calling it sh%&) to find thode hidden pieces of gold. Though I rarely comment, I want you to know that I very much appreciate your efforts.

    Thanks and I hope to be a guest of yours even for the following years.

  37. You are one of the very phew i follow because i love your work,
    Well, your late work.
    …let’s say i’m happy you worked hard and grow from that with a better english and way of translating.

    Your new prokect seem interesting, and you seem to find gem by blind picking so i am a little hyped, even if the synopsis is different from my usual taste.

    Anyway, i’m glad you don’t go on a big ass hiatus, traveling into isekai with you is a pleasure.

    Thank you for your work and thank you to continue !

  38. Wow, gratz for your new project.
    I hope everyone will enjoy this novel as we do. 😀

    Don’t worry, I’ll tell spoiler-san to not spoil too much on it later~ 😉

  39. Thanks reigokai-sama!!
    “Yeah, there’s no Japanese person, and no summoning, but what I am looking for is not a transported MC to an Isekai, it is to transport you to an Isekai.i” Smooth.

  40. Oh man. u choosed a project already. wanted to recommend yuusha ni horobosareru dake no kantana oshigotodesu. Alphapolis.co.jp/novel/375139834/6100667740 was searching for it. Did a small translation myself to read it but boy translating into readable text is hard lol. But wth arent the webby suppose to be free reading? author is getting paid right

    Btw read on novelupdate some guy posted tsuki author is skipping WN and going full time in LN so we are doomed?

  41. First time ever commenting, just wanted to say thanks for Tsuki, and I’m excited for the new project. Heck, at this point I’m kinda even just looking forward to more of your comments on the story

  42. Did you praise Truck-sama today?
    I am sure you know what happends if you don’t.

    Well I will definitely give your new project a try before I decide it is shit.
    Because I already got very much used to visiting this site on a regular basis to check for updates..

  43. … I just now remembered about the Tsuki ga Michibiku side stories from someone mentioning them in the comments here.
    So, Reigokai, are you going to translate them at some point?

    1. It will be added at a later date, by people who can add series on that site. The translators aren’t the ones who make those pages. As for when, it will be when one of the people who add series on that site notice either this post or the beginning of the translation of this series starting next week. One or the other.

  44. so what about your own story, double edged hero. any news on that? this would be a great time to focus a bit more on that.

  45. Yay! New project!
    ;-; bye Makoto, I will make sure I buy the light novel when I have money + when I go Japan next time(not available in my country unless I booked and buy from Kino which will make everything much more expensive)
    I wonder when will I have the courage and skills to be a online fan translator…
    Seems like a difficult job overall 😥
    I guess I should just try to brush up my poor Japanese skills first…

    1. Eh… Eh… Did I accidentally pressed twice?!
      Please delete the extra comment Reigokai-sama.
      And I’m sorry for doing this😥😥😥😥

    2. If my opinion matters, you can translate stuff if you have decent knowledge on grammar and sentence structure and jisho.org. As well as a good dosis of anime.
      Be prepared to spend quite a few hours per chapter though.

      You could prolly try translating an already translated chapter of a novel, so you can compare.

    3. Passerby, at least you’re near Kino. Expensive, yes, but you can just loiter there and read for ‘free’, if you know how.
      My place now is far from Kino, or any international book store. So sad.

        1. What? Gosh, no ! I don’t do bad things like that and I always separate work and hobby. H̶i̶t̶t̶i̶n̶g̶ Sending people to Isekai is work. Reading is hobby. Right now I’m sacrificing my hobby for work and real life.

          Real life … sigh…

          My soul (I don’t have a heart) screamed for freedom but my mind is ultimately caged in this cold body. I can do nothing but labor myself until my fragile body falls, just to get enough to feed this lifeless body… for a living in this world. How the wheel of life rotates… but nothing is ephemeral. One day, one day death will come and she will set me free.
          After that I’ll go ‘up there’, to the place where souls commune. The place of eternal bliss. I’ll find a tree and sit under it’s shade. There, I’ll open my favourite books and read them silently. Kind souls will see me and say, “This place is full of bliss and enjoyment and you’re just sitting here, reading. Come.” I’ll smile back at them. Show them my favourite book. “Still, after all those hard times?”, they’ll ask.

          … and I will answer,
          “Always.”

      1. I have lurked in the internet for ages and I guess I know where the slogan “Yes lolita, no touch” came from.

        You, my friend, is in need of help.
        I can help.
        I can send you to isekai like Mushoku Tensei.
        Hopefuly you can change then.

        Good luck.

    1. I know how you feel about Translation, I have been waiting for years YEARS!!!!!!!! For some translation group to finally work on Shura no Mon Manga, since 2007 till today they have just updated one chapter!!!!!! When will a group choose to wor in a good old Martial Arts bashing manga.

  46. Thank you for quickly picking up a new one. Still really sad there won’t be anymore Tomoe/Mio~ or finding out who the other contractor is with Makoto??

    1. wait, what do you mean by “finding out who the other contractor is with Makoto??” You already mentioned Tomoe and Mio in your comments, so the other two contractors are Shiki and Tamaki. If that’s really what you were asking about, then you must have not read much of the series(considering how early shiki is introduced). However, your comment also seem to imply that you’ve already caught up, which is why I’m confused.

  47. well glad you picked a new one. best of luck.

  48. I recommend, slowly take breakfast, leave the house and go to the nearest highway, stop in half and close your eyes, your trip isekai is there along with the truck sama

    PS. Be Happy

  49. The new project looks good.

    But can I have an answer for my previous question?
    Are you not going to translate the Extras for Tsuki ga Michibiku?
    Since you caught up with the author for the main story, you may as well translate the Extra since they are important and will give us more Tsuki ga Michibiku’s chapters.
    I hope you’re reading this.

  50. alright! this sounds good, i am already expecting this!, but a quick question, if tsuki get’s updated you will put priority to translate it?

  51. well if the TN says the story is good then i think it may be good but….the synopsis about the god losing…..not that attractive,you know.

    And off-topic…When is the War gonna end?(from moon-led journey)

  52. “4. Alphapolis changing their policies. Apparently, alphapolis has now implemented the ‘pay to read’. First few chapters are free, but the next ones, you have to pay. Also, you can’t copy+paste there anymore (and I don’t know how to get around that).”

    The pay to read is for the the books (I think) and for the text you can look the source code I think the shotcut keys are [Ctrl+U]
    If you are using Google Chrome type [view-source:] before the address (without [ ])

  53. Hohoho,I thought I would get news of this after a month or so. Thus this is unexpected yet at the same time expected of you, Reigokai-san. I need to remind myself of the speed you possesses. And I can expect the first chapter by next week? More news to be celebrated for! And my condolences for your harsh and downtrodden expedition over Syosetsu. Now,let us see the window to another world that you have opened for us!

  54. How to go around 4? Easy, pay.
    Let other people pay you via patreon ..and you buy the chapter.
    Shouldn’t be that pricey no?
    Can be payed via webmoney or visa

  55. Hey there Reigokai-san!
    Its been so long since the last time i commented here…
    First, thank you so MUCH much for all the hard work this whole time! ^^
    Then, thank you very MUCH that you have got yet another FANTASY novel after the Tsugi ga~

    I HOPE WE ALL CAN GET YET ANOTHER AMAZING TIME IN THIS ISEKAI STORY!!
    KEEP UP THE GOOD WORK!
    DONT OVERDO IT!
    YOU DESERVE REST AFTER ALL!
    …….

    ..
    .
    well,……. i still hope we can get the first chapter sooner, the better right?? ^^

  56. Awww I was hoping for the “I came back but the world is still a fantasy”
    But I am looking forward to this fantasy story 😀

  57. Sayonara Ryuusei Konnichiwa Jinsei has a manga but some are saying that it is rushed but the story is interesting

  58. Happened to stumble across your site just wanted to say thanks for your quality translation and personal story. With this new project on the horizon, do you have any plans for continuing to release DEH chapters in the near future? I can’t help but wait with baited breath 🙂

  59. Ehmm reigokai-sensei jst want to ask why not picking tsuyokute new saga?
    Its been to long not getting update yet well i just corius couse in manga that one of the most to my liking isekai, so it not just i mean for sensei its for all that know why ist not getting update yet…

    Good Luck, Have Fun

  60. Yay!!!

    Another project!!!

    BTW, Truck-sama doesn’t show-up because it’s at the workshop… Blood, bone and gore don’t clean themselves by magic, and a new bumper is always welcomed…

        1. Sorry, I don’t understand this joke.
          I’m an innocent minded, pure hearted truck.

          *regressing to a child-like state*
          *happily roll around the yard while singing*

          “Who’s your friend who likes to play?
          Bing Bong, Bing Bong
          His rocket makes you yell “Hooray!”
          Bing Bong, Bing Bong
          Who’s the best in every way, and wants to sing this song to say
          Bing Bong, Bing Bong!”

    1. I don’t know how he translates things, but if he uses something to help him translate it, copy&paste would be easier. Either that or he’ll have to spend time finding the right characters to understand it.

  61. OOOHHHH IM GETTING HYPED! I LIKE OP STORIES AND THINGS LIKE THIS!! ORA ORA ORA ORA!!!! You always do love saving my soul, Reigokai-sama!!! oh and truck-sama waiting to transport us to Isekai, can we just call on the God of each world and let them transport us? isn’t truck-sama kind of dangerous like a 99% chance you’ll just die?

  62. para copiar , guarda la pagina , despues lo habres con ONeNote 2013 o 2017 , asi lo hago con esas paginas que no puedo copiar..
    En English ( de google traslator)

    To copy, save the page, then you will have ONeNote 2013 or 2017, so I do with those pages that I can not copy

  63. really wanted someone to pick up “Sayonara Ryuusei”, “Spirit Migration” and “Tsuyokute New Saga”

  64. I was sort of hoping you’ll pick up because janitor-san is not a hero but…
    The new project looks interesting

  65. i just want to recomend a fantasy novel with MC in isekai but it’s from china. the title is WARLOCK OF THE MAGUS WORLD. if you have not read this novel i recomend you to read this. it’s a fantastic novel that i have read until now and the story will not make you bored. and i just want to recomend you not to translate ok. AND THANKS FOR YOUR HARD WORK UNTIL NOW TO TRANSLATE TSUKI GA.
