Hello. I translate stuff.

You can bring up projects you want me to pick up, but honestly, and let me be real here, I’ve probably read whatever you’re trying to suggest already. There’s also the fact that most series recommended already have active translators, and they’re brought to be because someone’s unsatisfied with the progress. That is not one of the situations where I will take up a project or anything.

There’s also that, you know. That. They desire to take up a project and complete it on your own. It gives quite a feeling of satisfaction. There are plenty of great novels out there that no one knows about overseas, so sending them across is quite a good feel.

If you want to make an image for the header, or front page of this website, then I will likely put it up if it is passable by my biased aesthetic sense.

        As for the first one “その無限の先へ” this web novel interest me the most is that authors’ synopsis make it look like tragedy type of web novel, but it is more of a comedy web novel. Main character go to the dungeon because he want to become a adventure to have a better life. The part I like the most is the weird people that he meet and join him. There lot of weird people in this novel like gender bender, three panda, a masochist, crazy scientist, etc. As the story go along the more weird people main character meet.

        “棺の魔王” is more of a dark fantasy type web novel. I think lately there have too much those overpower harem type web novel. This novel setting is more of medieval European fantasy. In this world the hero use the power he had in the wrong way. The development of the story is interesting and the characters design is pretty good too.

        I think the way I share my opinion are done poorly. It is better you go read it by yourself to decide.

    Had a question about the second on the might pick up list,
    “When I tried Being a ‘Hypocrite’ for real, Alot of People thanked me, I ended up Dissolving a Giant Criminal Organization, and Before I Knew it, I had Saved Seven Billion Lives.” Tried looking up a synopsis online and couldn’t find anything. Could you write a synopsis or a link to one?

      Yes, feel free. I don’t mind if anyone uses my work to translate to another language, but do mind that I don’t actually have permission from the original translator, so my permission doesn’t do much in itself.

    Hey Yoracchi! You probably don’t remember me, but I used to work on KnW. Since NetBlazer’s paid domain site went down, two of the chapters you TLed, 168 and 174, also disappeared. I’ve been getting a decent number of comments from people wanting to reread the series, so I decided to just repost the two chapters on my blog if it’s alright with you. Just wanted to give you a heads up.

    Mr Yoraikun I was wondering if you would be willing to pickup Tsuyokute New Saga as far as I know it is dropped which in my opinion would be a shame if it stayed that way. Thank You for listening.

    Hi~ I know your FAQ told us to knock ourselves out if we want to translate to another language. Still I like asking redundant questions (and pass it off as being polite). I would like to translate “A Game To Make Him Fall” and “The Probability I Can Kill My Wife Without Being Found Out” into French if you don’t mind. I plan on posting them on https://littleangelesworld.wordpress.com 🙂
    (By the way, thanks for your translations. The stories are really lovely!)

    Hi, I’ve read some of your translation story (the short one) and I really love it. Now I am wondering if I could use your work and translate it into Bahasa? (I am Indonesian). I wish to share it with the people in my country which can’t read English. I’ll put all the credit, including yours. Anyway, thank you for all the hard works. You are awesome! 😆

    Hello, I was wondering how you learned to read Japanese novels. Did it take you a long time to get the hang of reading Kanji?

    I’m good at reading manga, mainly since there’s furigana, but in novels, most kanji are without, so it makes it a lot harder for me to read. I started a Novel recently and I haven’t made it past the first page, haha. I constantly have to look up Kanji and piece them together to understand the meaning, since with Kanji there’s always more than one meaning. I guess the hardest part would be phrases only Japanese people would understand.
    Haha, I kinda rambled on.

    Have a good day
    Sincerely,
    Lorrycha

      I originally just learned how to speak Japanese from immersion (though I had basic reading skills), and just kept reading novels. I already knew most expressions and such, and as I read novels with a dictionary in hand, as I went on, I started needing the dictionary less and less. I still need to reference one on occasion. You can search by radical. Again, my ability to read Japanese mostly stemmed from my ability to speak it, which was forged in Japanese classes, and three years of a kid spent learning left from right in a foreign landscape.
