HighSchool DxD Volume 18 complete!

So volume 18 of DxD is finally done. Looking back, it actually wasn’t too long ago that I had just started translating it but it feels like it’s been much longer. Anyway, it’s also up on Baka-Tsuki now so you can edit to your liking. I’ve also checked the RAWs for V18 and can confirm that there are no other illustrations besides those of Irina which have already been covered which is slightly disappointing but V19 looks to have quite a few more illustrations.

I’ll be probably be starting volume 19 in the next few days but will probably only do “Rudra” and “Life.0”. Then I’ll be taking a break until late June / early July as I’ll be having exams then. But I’m at least hoping to get close to finishing volume 19 by the time that volume 20 is released. No guarantees though as V19 appears to have roughly 10 more pages than V18. Then again it does have more illustrations too.

About zxzxzx

I’m a uni student who likes computers, anime, games, tennis and photography among other things. I often read LNs, manga or watch anime in my spare time if I’m not translating something. I’m also an IT technician, so I deal with a lot of corporate IT issues and general troubleshooting of PCs, networks, software, etc. I often also have delusions of grandeur as I dream of marvelous ways to assassinate every member of the Chinese and North Korean governments, and all other tyrants against freedom.

    I’ve just finished reading vol 19 :D, but I hope Ravel is okay
    “minna-san, Ravel no buji wo oinori shiyou”

    But I’m still waiting for English translation, hahaha, because from vol 1 to 18 I read the English translation.

    Btw, how long do you translate for each chapter averagely? If it’s kinda fast, maybe I’m waiting your translation?

      For an average length “life”, I’d say 2-3 weeks at most, so around 30 hours. A chapter like “Rudra” took me a little less than 3 hours. I haven’t finished v19 myself as I read while I translate but I’ve already read spoilers so I hope Ravel is alright too.

        Wow, if you count with time to translate (of course, with some proofread and edit), that’s quite fast.

        I think I will read first, for next volumes too, but I’ll reread it when you’re finish translating it.
        Keep up the good works ๐Ÿ™‚

        Oh, and thank your for vol 18 too ๐Ÿ™‚

    if you have the baka ex reader app or the baka reader, you don’t need to download the PDF. You can download the LN straight onto your android or iPhone.

    Hey, I love how fast you translate! Keep up the good job! Was thinking, how about when you finish DxD you can help translate Shinmai Maou no Keiyakusha? It also have a big fan base but translatiosn are taking forever.

    – Keep up the good job and goodluck in the future!

    A quick note in the Afterword, on the part about SLASH/DOG, I think the word should be “connections” or something like that, rather than “errors”. And template should probably be setting, but I can go ahead and fix that on BT for you if you want.

    Hyped for Rudra and Life.0, those chapters are great. Well, v19 in its entirety is excellent. And we might get v20 info in a day or two, so yay~
