Brief Status Update

There are a few different things going on, so I’m posting it here rather than in my usual sticky post.

High School DxD Volume 24 is complete! I went through that way quicker than I had anticipated. We also broke my site record for most hits in a day: ~25k! It will be uploaded to Baka-Tsuki in a few more days, once I’ve moved past some personal deadlines. A PDF will be made very shortly afterwards. I used to give people a few days or even a week to make further edits on Baka-Tsuki, but no one ever seems to make changes there anyway, so I’ll speed the process up a bit.

There were many comments immediately after I posted the final update for V24 asking about V25. I apologise for not replying…it’s a bit overwhelming when every second comment is asking for the same thing. I’m looking forward to V25 as well, but it will have to wait. It’s that time of year again where I usually take a break to focus on my studies and end of semester exams. Please don’t discuss anything that happens after High School DxD V24…I don’t want spoilers of any kind because it kills my motivation to read.

Thanks to everyone who voted on which High School DxD short stories they wanted to read! I’ll be collaborating with Ariel Saeba, and possibly others to work on all of them.

In the meantime, I’ve been creeping along with progress on Shinmai Maou V8. I’m really just working on it as a side project at the moment whenever I get bored, and the first chapter might get done sometime in July.

In light of some recent developments, I’ve also drafted up a privacy policy. I don’t feel as though I really need one, but I’ve made it for the sake of transparency.

    thanks for the work you’ve done translating these, its been great.
    I hope you’re doing well in your studies.

    & I hope you look froward to the new DxD series that will continue from where DxD v25 will end (that is if you’re not aware of Ishibumi sensei’s twitter)

    once again thanks for all the work

    I just want to congratulate you for all the work you are putting in the translation of DxD, take all the time you need for volume 25, good luck and give your best with your tests and studies. I’ll be patiently waiting for this last volume, I hope that the story goes as I want 🙁

    Thanks for everything and more importantly thanks for the update

    Great work and good luck with your studies! Real life is more important, but i have a question, too: Is Slash Dog Vol. 2 out and not translated yet and is that story going on or is vol. 2 the end? Thank you for your hard work!

      JeruTz has been translating Slashdog. He translated the original web novel (volume 1), translated the expanded light novel release of volume one, and is currently working on volume two.

      His blog is : https://jerutz.wordpress.com/

      I have no idea if volume 2 is the last or if it will continue beyond. The author has a lot going on with being involved with the anime, the new iteration of DxD, Dx, Slashdog, and has also hinted at another spinoff in the works in the afterword of volume 23. My intuition thinks it will not end with Slashdog volume 2, as in the DxD series there are hints at more than enough ideas to continue the Slashdog series for several books.

    Thank you for your hard work, translating since D×D 18.

    Ishibumi先生 announced releasing D×D 0 this month (together with the BluRay/DVD package) and it will be the release before 真D×D 01 in July.

    Will you be picking up D×D 0 as well?  If not, is there someone among your fellows at Baka-Tsuki who will be picking up… or will it ever be picked up by anyone for translation?

      It has been discussed among the translators and I do believe that it will be translated, though probably not by me. That’s all I’ll say for now, given that it hasn’t even been released yet.

      Daniel Yang has been translating DX, his blog is: https://danielyang.ninja/

      He translates Korean to English, and does a fine job of it.

      His blog has a recent post about translating DX4, check it out.

    Don’t you worry about a thing and thanks for your work on dxd uptown volume 24. It was really entertaining and thrilling experience. We can wait for V25 of dxd and until that time you can take care of yourselves and your exams. Sorry, I was rude as I was also one of those who asked for V25 release dates on your blog.
