Chapter 21 & 22 are here

For those of you who wonder where I disappeared off to, I should remind you that I am basically in the midst of university admission exams. I translate when I am free, and because the chapters are so small finishing one gives a sense of accomplishment. It helps when you guys appreciate me translating them. I have no actual release schedule, and the early speed was due to me having free time as well as doing something new. For the next month or so, I will work on the same principle as before and put up chapters when I get the time. I'll try not to keep a cliffy hanging, but no promises.

Its not like I was completely away, as I wanted to do a bit of cleaning up on the website. I think I prettied up the Table of Contents, but that might be just me. I planning on slowly going through the previous chapters to make some changes, because I believe there are several sentences at times that would be better as a paragraph, and there may also be a lack of flow. But that would be a hell a lot slow, because I don't trust my editing skills too much. I have a habit of skipping over mistakes because I read them correctly in my brain.

Tl;dr I have exams, chapters will be sporadic with no release schedule, and I might end up editing previous chapters.

Here are the new chapters.

Chapter 20

Well, here's chapter 20. There is a sliver of plot in this chapter, along with a heap of reasons to kill Yuuto. And Spica is adorable.

Chapter 19 is here

A really late chapter today. Probably the only chapter since I was too busy with my mock exam. Meh, its not like I could have kept up that insane speed from the beginning anyway. At least the chapter is bigger than average for the story.

Ch 19

Here is Chapter 18

I seem to be recognizing Japanese words as I MTL them. Small stuff like 'yes', 'no', 'master' and the like, but still, its an improvement from a week ago. I wonder if I could actually learn to read Japanese while MTLing?

Also, here's the next chapter. It gets tiring explaining all the shit the Yuuto practiced in his life. It almost seems like he had a nonexistent social life.

Chapter 17 is here

The next few chapter's are a bit bigger than the average, and I'm getting busier as my admission exams get closer, so I don't think I could churn out three chapters a day. So I'll aim towards two a day and if I get too much free time there might be a third.

Anyway, here is the chapter.

Chapter 16

This chapter was so small that I finished it in 30 minutes. I figured, meh, let's post it before going to class.

Ch 16

Chapter 15

So here's chapter 15. I translated half of it yesterday, then fell asleep while listening to Miku, then woke up and finished this today. Since I have Mock Exams from today, you can expect a lower frequency of release. Cheerios.

Chapter 14 is here

Barring the first chapter, this is probably the longest chapter yet for the story. In fact, it was double the size of chapter 13 (which was the shortest chapter yet). Anyway, enjoy.

Ch 14

Today's first chapter

After a proper rest I'm feeling refreshed. So here's chapter 13 for you guys. Enjoy.

Today's chapters are here

So like I predicted, I managed only two chapters today. Chapter 11 seemed slightly bigger than the rest of them, but that might just be my fever talking. And Chapter 12 has some nice development in it, so you guys will be pleased hopefully.

If you didn't notice it, I'm running a bit of a temperature and a headache due to season change cold. It only served to make me lethargic so that shouldn't be a problem, I hope.

So anyway, carry on.

Ch 11
Ch 12

P.S. I wonder how novelupdates would treat the chapters if I post two at once?

Chapter 10 is here

Alright, so I have finished Chapter 10. At this point I thought I should let you know that I won;t have power for five hours tomorrow because they would be moving power lines to make it easier to work on the elevated expressway.... It's a pure mess I can tell you that. Because of that, since I'll have a computer for less amount of time, expect a decrease in release frequency. Since it is an interesting read, I don't think I'd want to go lower than my current speed (mainly because I can understand the story much better when I try to MTL instead of leaving it to google), so there probably would still be two chapters. Anyway, I thought you guys should know that, since my three day rate is 3 chapter a day. Cheerios.

Ch 10

Here's Chapter 9

So chapter 9 is done. I'm really liking this story so far. Such small chapters are easy to translate. :)
There's also the sense of accomplishment when you complete a chapter, so it's great all in all.

Chapter 8

And here we have chapter 8. Hope you guys like it.

Ch 8

Damn it!

So I was working on chapter 7, and having completed it, I pressed on the save button.... And the software crashed. When I opened it, the entire chapter was gone. FUUUUUUUUU.............

An entire hour's effort was wasted with that. Course, it was my fault since I didn't save even once while translating.

So now, having spent another hour TLing, here's the chapter.

Ch 7

Here's some more

And here is chapter 5 and 6 done. The chapters are really really short, so it's easy to translate.

By the way, if anyone notices any mistakes, please do make sure to let me know.

Ch 5
Ch 6

Chapter 4

And here's chapter 4. The chapters are relatively small, so it's easier to work with. It means that I can finish a chapter in one go in my free time. Considering this is a machine translation, and the fact that my Japanese vocabulary is severely lacking, I'd probably have to look for an editor that can check if I didn't end up completely misunderstanding the meaning.

Also, for anyone that thinks that the blog could use a better design, I agree with them. I just don't have the time to pretty it up right now. May be I'll do that at some point.

By the way, while it's probably inconsequential now, but could anyone come up with a good westernization of the name of the Orc Boss that Yuuto killed in the first chapter? Girudia Mesaieti sounds off to me.

Ch 4

Ch 3

And here we have chapter 3. Just to let you guys now early, I'm basically doing this to decompress between university admission exams. So don't expect too much in terms of release schedule. I'll translate when I feel like it.

Ch 3

And we begin

I thought I'd try my hands at Machine Translation. So here are the first two chapters of Skill Taker's World Domination as a test/teaser. Hope you like it.
