      You know he DOES this for FREE right? you can’t expect him to translate 24/7. He has a real life and is taking a break from finishing up the last volume MAYBE.  What I mean by the last volume maybe is the sequel already released here http://highschooldxd.wikia.com/wiki/True_Light_Novel_Volume_1 but not picked up yet by any translator.  he’s on the fence about translating it if people don’t leave him alone about his translation speed and progress. when you leave comments like still waiting for the Last volume to be Translated or things like How much longer before Chapter ??? is posted it’s just plain disrespectful to ask by anyone’s standers. If the Progress Z is making at his own pace is too slow for anyone to deal with by all means please make a blog to post, Buy the Raws, Learn Japanese, and translate it yourselves then for faster results otherwise be patient and wait for it to be posted whenever it gets done. Have a nice day!

    i’m brazilian, sorry for the rough English

    zx there must be enough work, a lot of expectation

    as well as criticism

     

    is my first post, I’m a fan of dxd and I intend to read Seikoku no Ryuu Kishi

    I started vol 24 from dxd … my despair to vol 25 … I do not want to put pressure but … I read the post at home … I will read everything that translate with a smile on the face … please … as a fellow fan  I had already started learning hiragana and katakana but the road is long, I hope you change your mind

    Hello zxzxzx-san. Are you interested translating DX4? You know, your work for High School DxD, as if you are not its translator but more like you are its author. Good work.

    I’ve always wondered zx, when you’re on hiatus like this, do you ever get the urge to just read ahead without worrying about translations just because you’ve gotten hooked on the story?
    Also, thanks for the tips on learning how to read Japanese.

      Nope, strangely not. If I’m going to spend some amount of time reading, why not spend a little more time to translate while I’m at it?

    Hi there zxzxzx, I really love your translation work so much. Thank you for translating these novels for us all. I may have to wait for who knows how long until the next chapter posted, but I will wait patiently just for you.

    I think it should be said that it takes a unique skill to bring us these story’s and not everyone can do it. It is forever possible that we may never get to finish the story of ise. I for one am truly heartbroken. Your work is immortalized in not only the fans minds but in the internet itself. Now for you xzxzxz. I will not be so fast to begin a story you have started, for the fear of you not finishing the journey you have started leaves holes in ones imagination the size of planets.

    Hey z, so sorry to bring to bring this up but if you are going to stop translating dxd is there anyone you can recommend to continue on with your wonderful work over the years.

      I was going to not comment but I seen this dumb question. To answer you NO there is nobody else who does the translations of Dxd Fully in there FREE TIME like Z does now there used to be but that person quit for the very same reason Z is Quiting to time comsuming and a lot of bitching. Infinite amount of People asking for when the next update will be RELEASED when they can’t Read it saids ON HOLD or when to expect. Code-Zero the old translator only Helps out now and then when Z needs extra help and he has refused to pick up the series fully ever again. I pray Z will perhaps change his mind on continuing the series after v25 but people got to stop with all the BULL**** about when the next chapter will be and let him do the TL’ing @ his own speed. It will get done just don’t nag.

        okay, so the GRADE A SUCK UP is online; do you even know why i asked that question, its because he may know people who may want to continue translating the series which can make UNNEEDED A-Holes like you happy that it is being continued. Now i appreciate what he has done over the years also I never rush him to finish translating and i never EVER nag him to get it done, i just patiently wait for him to finish just like you and everybody else who uses this site. So your comment was just not needed so BITCH BE HUMBLE AND SIT DOWN, no one asked you anything, i asked Z.

          Well fyi you ungreatful SOB if you did any research you would find that there is nobody doing the series for FREE to US like Z does outside the Paid TL it’s commen knowlage when doing a Internet search so there is no one he could even recommend to pick it Up. If your patiently waiting like you claim don’t ask dumb-ass question if you don’t want the A-HOLES like me to reply. Don’t get your panties in a bunch while waiting for the next update whenever Z gets around to it. If he continues after 25 it’s wonderful. If not we are all FUCKED.

            First of all, all gratitude to The Z-Man.

            Second of all, @Maurice,

            HAHAHAHAHA

            Dude, you might think that you’re sticking up for justice. Don’t do that. You come across as tryhard and kiss-ass-ish.

            If you want to actually make a difference, learn Japanese (Or something else that makes his work easier. If you know the TL world so well, make yourself actually useful) and help Z with his workload. That would be a more prudent use of your time, rather than doing whatever it is that you think you’re doing.

            If you still wanna keep doing this, that’s fine as well. I always like coming here and see you get swatted on the nose. Funny as hell.

            Don’t assume you’re the smartest person in the room unless you’re really really sure you are. Especially with the grammar. Do a grammar check (or a spell check) before you post dude. Otherwise, you it just looks like a baby hijacked his dad’s work laptop to read a bunch of Ecchi novels.

            I’m sure Z has reasons for the break he’s taking. I love his work as do most if not all of his readers. We’re all loyal and the only reason we would ask him is if we loved his work, and if we wanted to read more. Anyone with half a brain would understand that it’s a complement to his skill and dedication. Don’t be the sanctimonious asshole who thinks he/she knows everything. There are enough of those out there.

            Cheers, She-Man.

            First of all, all gratitude to The Z-Man.

            ( You Say that but you don’t have any gratitude or respect for Z.)

            Dude, you might think that you’re sticking up for justice. Don’t do that. You come across as tryhard and kiss-ass-ish

            ( Maybe so and I’ll stick up for Justice as long as there are people who can’t READ prior comments before asking the same dumb shit questions over and over. )

            If you want to actually make a difference, learn Japanese (Or something else that makes his work easier. If you know the TL world so well, make yourself actually useful) and help Z with his workload. That would be a more prudent use of your time, rather than doing whatever it is that you think you’re doing.

            ( If you actually want to make a difference you could learn Japanese yourself if you wish and want to read more before Z can complete his translations. Nobody is Stopping you to do so. I never said I know or Knew the TL world but anybody with a quarter brain would understand it’s not easy to translate any Raws quickly. fyi Z don’t TL from the original Jap Raws but the Harder Chinese ones fool.)

            I’m sure Z has reasons for the break he’s taking. I love his work as do most if not all of his readers. We’re all loyal and the only reason we would ask him is if we loved his work, and if we wanted to read more. Anyone with half a brain would understand that it’s a complement to his skill and dedication. Don’t be the sanctimonious asshole who thinks he/she knows everything. There are enough of those out there.

            ( His reasons are as follows – Too many damn people asking for updates on Dxd like you that’s why he’s taking a break. You say We’re all loyal WRONG. Only 50% of his readers are loyal to him and they are the ones who don’t ask weekly for when the next update will be but let him do his work at his own pace. So asking is not a Complement but a stressful discouragement and a waste of his time to answer peoples concerns about the next update. If you want to show support then just leave him alone and he will update when possible.) The only sanctimonious asshole’s are the ones who think there entitled to something for nothing and always download his pdf’s for FREE but never donate and I’m guessing you fall in well with all those sanctimonious FREELOADERS that are the other 50% but not the loyal ones. If you half to ask your not loyal to anyone but yourself and wanting HANDOUTS.

            So Piss Off MATE. You bloody Wanker!

            Your right it is unnecessary but I did not start this topic only addressing you’ve answered the same question about Shin Infinite times already and it needs to stop until you make you’re finial decision on if you will continue after 25. But yes No more Flaming and goes for EVERYONE not just me right. I’ll be the bigger person and Stop while I’m ahead. Peace Z

      Z hasn’t actually said he was quiting DXD he said he was taking a break and doing Testament of Sister New Devil so he could do a volume or 2.

      • 0

        Z stated he Prefer not to translate the next series of Dxd witch is Shin (aka) the Continuation after v25 is complete. Prefer is boarder-line for not Sure. Also since people can’t read prior comments before they asked the very same question that was already addressed many times He really considering not Continuing the series after the End of 25. With everyone hounding him for the eta on Life 0 that he has no obligation to give and we are not entitled too until he gets it done when he can If I where in his shoes I would consider quiting too because of ungrateful people like the ones who keep asking  weekly when it clearly said’s it’s on HOLD. As for Testament I’m not really stressing over if it gets TL’ed by Z or Not because I joined the Paid Translation site a few months back that are already finished up to volume 9 and 10, 11 are 90% done and volume 12 is 50% TL”ed.

    Hey zx, instead of pestering you for more translations, I want to thank you for everything that you’ve done for us until now. I truly appreciate the time and effort you put into each volume. It’s fine if you want to stop translating DxD. I’m just glad we had someone doing this out of the goodness in their heart for people everywhere. Thanks again, and I wish you good luck in life

    Hey zxzxzx,

    I’ve been somewhat inspired by your message about equal exchange in the translation community.
    I’m fluent in English and when i find some time i’ll try to improve the grammar of your translations if there’s anything i can improve.

    Thanks for putting in so much effort, this series has been amazing for me as well and i’m really glad someone like you picked it up and translated it for us who can’t.

    Keep up the good work mate!

      Then is no known info outside it’s a Darker Continuations from Vol 25 atm. It’s due to be released this Summer unless the street date has changed or already out in Japan. Z don’t know if he is even going to TL it or Not until Vol 25 is fully Translated and read by him. So don’t ask.

            Thanks a lot  People for ruining our only hope of getting the next Installment of the Dxd series Translated by Z. This is the very same reason I kept TELLING all you illiterate people to Stop and Read Prior comments before you ASK the same Damn questions that’s been asked Over and Over again and Z has given you the answer too with his reason.  His Answer and Reason was He would not give us a Yes or No until after V25 was fully TL’ed and he read it. But now thanks to all of YOU and YOU know WHO you are for asking that same question  he’s finally given a Defent NO reply this Time. We can all thank  Jjch102296 he or she is the straw that broke the camels back.

            I am sorry for bothering you. Maurice was right, i should have tried to look for the answer before bothering you by asking the same question that you have been getting over and over again. An i am sorry for basically pushing you over the edge like Maurice said. If so i am also sorry for everyone else as well for ruined the DxD series for zxzxzx and everyone else. I hope you guys can forgive me.

            There is nothing to forgive. You Lady or Mister have single handed doomed the Shin Highschool DXD series before it ever got 1 line of word Translated all because you could not stop and take time to read prior comments. So thanks for the Death of SHDxD. Just like the Ones asked for life 0 ETA. If you don’t stop Z will quit TL’ing that too and say screw us all I’m done TL’ing for Ungrateful wankers.

            okay fine i messed up now shin won’t get translated by anyone but that doesn’t mean i am ungrateful. I am extremely grateful. I suffer from bipolar depression  besides being autistic. whenever i am feeling sad or over the edge i read one of the dragonar academy and high school dxd translations he has done. I again i am super extremely sorry that i made zxzxzx not want to translate the Shin High School DxD series. i didn’t know he would feel that way if i asked the question and again i should have read the other questions before asking. I hope maybe after he reads High School DxD volume 25 he might change his mind about translating the shin high school dxd series or hopefully  someone else will translate the series. How knows only the future will tell but, we can only hope for our wishes to come true

            There you go again not reading the entire comment. I did not say you where Ungrateful I said All the People ASKING for life 0 of v25 eta are Ungrateful. Because they have no clue how much time and effored it takes to translate a single line of the Raw Z is working from. If EVERYONE don’t stop Complaining about when Life 0 will be ready Z might just Stop doing Public releases and just translate the remaining of v25 for Privet reading then gives Us the middle finger. As for about having Shin TL’ed by someone else Fat Chance. Z is the only Person doing the DXD series and Updating in his free time other then Code-Zero who did  DXD a couple of years back but Quit for this very reason of beginning pressured by people bugging him next Update on his blog. He went from having a Monthly Update to bimonthly to 1 volume a year then just Quit. This will Exeremely Blow if Z is set on not wanting to Translate the Dxd series into Shin witch is the Continuation from v25 ending.

            Z, I know people keep asking questions you’ve already answered. That sucks.

            @Maurice, If this account/poster is an alias for someone on the inside, then you just  made fun of someone with a mental illness. I’ll leave the interpretation of what you’ve done to you. Is this the benchmark for decency in this community from someone who’s in the inner circle?

            If not, and you just stay here and post stuff, dude, get a life. There’s an entire world out there.

            If you’re a TL, and if you’re running/working on a TL Blog that relies on readers, then yeah, all of this comes with the territory. If you can’t handle comments, then why do this? Certainly not for the money. People are people. Some people are more patient and attentive and some less so. That doesn’t give you the right to make less of them.

            Let’s not forget that Z does this because he shares the passion of his readers for the source material. I don’t think he does this because there’s a gun to his head or there’s a potential payoff of a million plus dollars waiting to be transferred into his account. If he feels that strongly about the so called ‘stupid comments’ then let him share his grievances.

            Be more than a mouthpiece, mouthpiece.

            Take care, Dildo-man/woman. 🙂

            Douchebag did Z not just say a couple of days ago that the flaming was unnecessary. Apparently, you don’t or Can’t understand the English Language enough to respect anyone. Lol, learning disability Wow you have me mistaken with you. You’re one of those people that I was talking about who don’t read prior comments before putting their FAT foot into there Big mouths. So I’ll say this 1 more time if came here to whine about when the next chapter will be done or ask for an Update DON’T. You as the Reader are not Entitled to know when the next release will be. Z will have it done in time. If you can’t wait then learn Japanese and read the raws yourself.

      Vol 25 is the end of the 1st series called dxd. Dxd is continuing in the new series this summer.  New light novel called Shin High chool Dxd. It will continue from where v25 leaves off but the new storyline in this series will have a darker telling/ fell to it from what the author has posted on tweeter.

    Hi

    Now that Hero is about to finish.

    I continue to read reviews and Ratings of DxD Hero and many western viewers dislike season 4 yet many Japanese viewers seem to like DxD Hero

    So, what is the actually truth, Did DxD Hero with Passionate studio sale well with viewer or not?

    Someone please explain to me this confusion

    I am a true DxD fan and hope to see season 5 announced.

    I am hope that the blur ray and merchandise of Hero sale well

    DxD forever

      I believe that many Crunchyroll members that are DxD fans do like season 4 because it follows the true LN story directly with less fillers than the previous seasons. Most negative comments posted at the CR pages are related to the animation and faces. I like the new faces because they are more like the original illustrations of the LN. I see little reason not to like the new season. I am also very excited to see if season 5 will cover the “death” and rebirth of the Red Dragon Emperor, and may includes Issei’s former proposal to wed Rias.

       
      Thank you for all your translation work, and I do hope to read volume 25 and the next volumes translated this year.

      Not soon enough if people don’t stop asking for a eta on vol25. Every ime someone ask it’s only going to make him not want to continue the translations after vol25. So please STOP ASKING People!!!!!!!!!!!!!

      this is what I’m hoping for, even with his personal life that he must first think, but he could try to arrange a time to translate the volume, I’m holding myself here, I can not wait to read the volume 25

    I have a question how have viewers seen season 4 Hero compared to the light novel now that the season is about to end?

    I have read for many thread online that Passionate has agreed to 2 seasons of DxD.

    but WHAT ABOUT BEYOND SEASON 5 which mostly likely cover the long desired volumes 11 and 12.

    Based on Hero is there any real hope of volumes like 20 or 25 getting adapted.

    Hope that DxD anime continues as long as possible

      In my opinion I think Highschool DxD is popular enough though it is difficult to say if it will continue as far as possible since based from my observation more of its fan base are watching it illegally though if it could get a good profit from the Blu ray releases then another season would be possible since it seems that this season is not for the the light novel promotions since older volumes is quite difficult to obtain in Japan however this is just my opinion so guys please be gentle with me 😀

        Hope you are right because DxD is the best light novel

        Not getting as many anime seasons as possible would be sad

         

        I hope that 2018 is not the end of the light novel adaptations and season 5 comes in 2019 or 2020

    hello translator, first I have to thank you for the translations of dxd so far, but I have a question, have you started translating volume 25? or will it start? but I’m not complaining, just asking and once again, thank you very much for translating.

    I just wanted to say thanks for taking the time to translate this LN for free, I know many appreciate it. And try to not get pressured if people start getting impatient, take all the time you need, just knowing that someone is doing this, is highly appreciated.

    I hope than on the continuation of volume 25 they focus more on Rias and Issei 🙁

    • 1

      0

      Well, Rias and Issei are basically settled until the wedding or her finally taking the role of the legal wife (less she be usurped by Ravel) and setting the sex schedule.  The author is trying to get all the other girls settled and official before this main DxD line is finished in a few volumes.

      • 0

        0

        Yeah, but at the same time he is proposing to everyone, I would like if he only marries Rias xD

        And I like that the author is giving some screen time to every heroine, but sadly this DxD finished in this volume. We’ll have to wait what’s the next DxD

      WTF? REALLY? I’m i reading your comment Correctly. You just did not ask for a ETA on V25 did you. He’s not going to tell anybody a ETA for when he will start v25. Be thankful someone is taking there Free time to Translate this series for Us and call yourself LUCKY. Fan Translations is a HOBBY and Very Very Time Consuming Process to pick up in the first place. So asking someone who gives this to us for Free is like slapping them in the face when you wine for a ETA on the next Installment.

        Dude I am just asking out of curiosity for reading next volume I don’t have intention to force know.indeed I am asking what’s the expected time but not in a demanding manor.if zxzxzx feels he can answer if not there its nothing.i will wait till it will resume no problem simple.i am grateful just as you for his translation.

        • 4

          0

          Just asking for the ETA for V25 is beyond rude to begin with. You’ll just need to wait like the rest of US until he starts it in Time. Like he has said many many times he Read’s each Volume as he Translates each chapter. My guess would be end of June b4 he starts the translation and will be done with v25 by Mid August or Early September. Then if he decides to Continue the Translations of the New Series True Highschool Dxd he will tell us when he’s finished with volume 25.

          • 0

            2

            First off – Friend I don’t need to Chill. Asking for when He will start v25 right after he finished v24 was beyond rude.

            Secondly –  It don’t take a lot of brains to scroll down the comments and find simple answers to peoples dumb ass annoying question they keep repeating when they have been already addressed many times by Z.

            Thirdly – All announcements about status updates can be found on the Home Page on the right hand side of the screen where Z is currently @ on each translations when he gives his monthly update.  But for some reason most of you repeated offenders don’t Comprehend that and it’s been pointed OUT BEFORE. look on the front home page before you ask you dimwitted questions.

            Lastly – People gotta understand he does this for FREE and it’s a Hobby. People like Z have personal Lives outside Fan Translations that take priority over anything else. Be grateful there is still someone like Z who is still actively translating this series without asking for any type of Donations or turning it into a Paid TL like many other groups do.

            When I said chill I meant that it wasn’t worth it to pick a fight with someone who doesn’t know better, friend. 

            People come from all walks of life and not all have the same sense of decorum you believe you have.

            I’m grateful. Please check my comment above before giving me that holier-than-thou shpiel. But since you’ve decided to get offended by every thing small and big in the world and crusade against said evil without any prior research, I’m going to heed my own advice and stop here.

            Good day to you, sir.

            Fyi – Apropo Zxzxzx translates mostly from the Chinese version of the novels and only refers to the Japanese one’s Occasionally with the help of Google or some other translate program when needing to I believe and I’m not sure what the style of writing is called in Chinese outside the Official JP kanji. You hit the nail on the head about begin lucky there is someone willing to take time and Resources to translate the series. My point was just DON’T ask it’s rude.

    Will you also Translate V25 ? And Is anyone Translating Dx4 currently?

    • 0

      As Zxzxzx has stated before He translates as he reads so v25 will be translated while he reads it. The Continuation after v25 called SHIN HIGHSCHOOL DXD that comes out this Summer is in the MAYBE stage if he will translate it or Not. As for DX4 Zxzxzx don’t translate it Daniel doe’s. You can find the Information on Daniel Yang’s blog @ the top of this page. But fyi he already said he will start DX4 as soon as he buys it next month.

    i was starting loss a hope that this part will be unfinished …….but i and many others finaly have it. This part was wery emotional including reconciliation between shirone a kuroka. I was even much surprised when Kuroka confessed that she loves Issei. But One thing is definitely clear. it will definitely be interesting in next part  to see how Issei
     will be manage master his newly enriched harem.

       ZX   thank you very much for another excellent translated part

    Alright so first time commenting on here but after reading that volume 25 isnt gonna be the end of the series, and that the author plans on another series (Shin Highschool DxD? Supposedly) i had to ask. Will you also be translating this new series’ volumes as well? To go a long with that question, i would also like to expeess my sincere gratitude for the hard work put into translating these volumes. I wouldnt have been able to enjoy this series as much as i have without that so i can say from the bottom of my heart that i appreciate all that you’ve done! After learning that the series doesnt end with that 25th volume, i had to ask if there were plans for its translations or not, because i truly look forward to the continuation of the story, but that aside, my appreciation and admiration for whats already been translated i felt needed to be spoken, so once again, regardless of what your response is toward the new series translations, i sincerely thank you one more time!

      @ Josha

      I’m not Zxzxzx but I can tell you he has already addressed that concern. His reply was He is undecided until he is finished reading vol 25 because he reads as he Translates. When volume 25 is Complete he will decide but we all hope that is decsion will be Favorable to us the readers of his Translations.

      • 0

        0

        Ah, i see! Thank you, I didn’t know he read as he translates but i suppose that would make sense to do. I have to wonder if it’s to see if he still feels as motivated to work on the translations as he has been, I could understand it being tiresome since it’s something he uses his own free time on. I’m very thankful that because of his translations that I’ve been able to follow along this story. I think someone before said people could use some site to get copies of the original and Google Translate them and they probably would get the gist of whats happening, but i will say from my experience with GT in the past, its not as reliable as Zxzxzx has been throughout this endeavor. I’ll stick to being thankful for his translations even if he decides not to continue, but of course it’d be a lie to say i wouldn’t be disappointed. I truthfully do not mean disappointed in him at all, just that I wouldn’t be able to enjoy the series anymore for probably a long time would be the disappointing part. I guess I’d try to teach myself to read the original printings is what i’d like to say.. although at this point, i feel like i’m rambling on ha ha. Again, appreciate the response!

          Yeah I would say away from google translate it’s shit compared to someone who can do the Physical Traslations. Well I mean what ever Language the TL’er chooses to do them from. Originally the Raws are Japanese and Zxzxzx translates them from Chinese. Learning Japanese is not a easy task if you choose to TL yourself. Sure there are many sites claiming they can teach you the language but having someone who Speaks the native language as your tutor would be a better way to learn it correctly. Time will only tell if Zxzxzx will continue after vol 25 or if he will choose to quite because it’s very time consuming.  We the Readers hope He will continue but it’s not our decision in the End.

      For the LAST time because PEOPLE keep asking ZXZXZX Does not do the DX side Story’s he only Translates the MAIN SERIES for now DX is done by another Translator named DANIEL go to his Blog. Fyi DX 4 is not out yet and DX 3 is only half done. SO please STOP ASKING when the NEXT DX story will be done because Zxzxzx don’t do them.

Oh well my mistake Dx 3 is done but DX 4 is not out yet [So please stop asking Zxzxzx about it he don’t work on them.] You know who you are?

    Dude enough with asking when next part will be Uploaded. You know that Translations is a hobby he does in his spare time apart from his Job and School right ? Like the Side bar to the right on the Home pages saids Next part will be Soon. If you can’t wait for Zxzxzx to finish he translation  download the Raws from Jcafe24 and use Google Translate to read it.

        Well if you can Translate them you could get them for Free off of the Jcafe24 site after making a free account then writing 2 post to unlock download links or you can buy the digitals from any Japanese online book store that sells manga/ Light novels. Amazon.co.jp or ebay if you want hard copys. there is also Comic or Book walker , Cdjapan.com but I don’t think they sell them in digital format. Don’t forget that there is a Pre-qual to the Highschool Dxd series out called Slash Dog Vol 1&2 + the New Series this summer Shin [True] Highschool Dxd.

      Unforuntly there are NO english version of the Light Novels currently Published by a US/UK Company. Only the Manga has been picked up for in the USA and it’s behind in it’s releases too. Only suggetion i can make is just wait on these Translations to be done and read them then.

Of course, you are still trying to finish this volume and you have another volume to go as well so yeah… never mind. Hahaha.

    Hi to all DxD fans and readers

    I like to hear readers’ opinion on how far DxD anime could go?

    Other similar anime like Freezing, In another world with my smartphone and Date Alive all seem to not reach the level of DxD anime.

    Even though the light novels of smartphone and Date Alive sell better than DxD.

    I personally think that DxD anime will reach up to vol 11 and 12.

    But wish DxD anime gets as many anime adaptation as possible

    What are DxD light novel readers/fans thoughts?

    DxD forever

    This my first attempt to post sorry if i made a mistake

    Season 4:  Hero will be awesome Crimson Red Armour

      Comparing LN and Anime actually foolish reason. Industry of anime saw how well their products sell not the how much LN copy is selling.

       

      It will depen on how well(in business) High School DxD can do in Hero season. If it success then we will see another couple or more season. Even if it is fail in market I am hoping that we will see at least one season more.

       

      No matter how good is LN, if anime adaptation fails then industry won’t be interested in revive those. But more than 75% anime lover watched High School DxD I bet, and it is also somewhat popular than other ecchi based harem series in Japan, so I don’t see it will stop at Hero season.

       

      But well anything happen in this world, I donno the future.

        DxD’s anime adaption is very popular in Japan. In the pre-screening of Hero, the event was sold out (many girls also attended), and Issei’s voice actor has said he loves voicing the character (and even said that at one point he became rather obcessed with the Oppai Dragon Song ~ LMAO!)

        Nnnn you are wrong.

        Light novel and anime are related to each other very much. Most LN anime are not made to make profit, but to advertise the light novel (a fact- manga/Ln industry make more then anime). you can see the LN/manga sale of series on myanimelist/animenewsnetwork that how much boost in sale a series get when they get anime adaption, if the boost is very much then there will be very good chances of having second season even if anime sale is not good. Also due to this reason anime does not caught up lightnovel. Most of time anime success is determined how much LN sale increase. some example where sale increase tooo much are SAO, NGNL, etc.

        Due to this reason only, you may have noticed that once the LN/Manga is completed or is in climax than chances of next season become very low.

        you may have also seen that many popular series in japan have an alternative ending although they were successful, anime which cover only good part of ln, made like any sequal is impossible. it happen because after this sale of LN increase too much (best example Youkoso Jitsuryoku shijou shugi no kyoushitsu e- one of the best seller ongoing LN). Just think that if DXD anime has not stop at that time and season come out every 1-2 year then most of us would not be hear.

         

        Dont get me wrong, I am not saying that all anime are made for LN sale boost. there are some whose target is profit or was to advertise LN but become a big hit that next season start coming (like SAO). but for most LN anime target is LN advertisement.

        In the case of passion studio dxd. profit is the target as LN is so ahead that only previous volume may get some new readers.

        edit: after reading my comment it seem i am repetitive (and also very boring). well cant help. writing comment after a long time

          Would you please take your dissussion somewhere else besides Zxzxzx blog. Your both right and wrong. We Yes LN and Anime are connected in most ways but are also apart in the same ways. If sales are High for the current Hero Seasons when it comes out on BD then we might get another season later on but that don’t mean it’s gaurneeted. The same logic is implyed to the LN if sales are high enough we might see another installment but it’s not 100%.

    I know it has nothing to do with the Light Novels updates, but I just you all to know these infos about the pre-screening of DxD Hero:

    >the design works really well in animation

    >some quite prefer it since it’s cuter including Ishibumi (DxD Author)

    >event was just about sold out

    >girls were once again present at the event

    >animation quality was drastically better than anything Passione did before AND the previous seasons

    >they got that creepy vibe from s1 back with the hero faction and that guy with the darkness sacred gear

    >Yuki Kaji (Ise’s VA) said he became a bit obsessed with the oppai dragon song at one point, he loves dubbing the series, one particular scene left him with a sore throat from yelling for days (LOL)

    >Ishibumi and Kaji never expected the oppai dragon song to be put on iTunes,

    >there was a bit of a cheer when the Issei vs Sairaorg spar hit its climax due to the animation

    >the ED song is good

    >there difference in tone between the fanservice/comedy and action/plot is very nice, it’s unsettling in a good way like the LN at times

    >Ishibumi said the first and foremost target of Hero during production was LN fans (Yey! Ishibumi going to spoil LN reader fans)

    >Ishibumi made the staff read all the way up to the newest novels so there wouldn’t be any inaccuracies (LMAO~)

      If you go by old rank list they were on 6 position but since after Issei and Vali powerup they could be ranked on either 8 or 9 position.

      It depends on your own perspective I’d say, there’s no explicit mention of how it works. Technically, neither Xenovia nor Asia are Rias’ servants anymore. Just because their master Issei is still a servant of Rias, it doesn’t necessarily mean that all of Issei’s servants have to obey Rias. Anyway, there isn’t really any information on this so it’s just speculation.

      I leave the date at the end of each chapter I do. I suppose there was a break between V23 Life.1 and Life.2. I finished V23 Life.1 at the end of August 2017, and resumed in January. I’ve basically been translating ever since then.

    Hey zxzxzx I just wanted to say thanks for translating hs dxd man and I wish that you can continue doing it with even shin is dxd as well and if I could even help out with translation I would. But sadly I just speak pure English language

    I found it some time ago on shinmai masou translation project but I forgot when. But anyway it posts news about shinmai and from what I read someone is translating it hopefully and my guess is when it’s done translating volume 8 it would move on to volume 9 and so on. And I think it will be on baka tsuki. So that way zx u can focus on translating dxd novels more.

      No disrespect but that’s not Proof enough that Someone else it doing it just because you read it somewhere. Baka-Tsuki already post who is translating Shinmai Series and there only 1 Active translator shown. Guess Who? it’s Zxzxzx. I read somewhere that Volume 12 was the Last volume of the Story but until I get a hold of a copy after Translations are complete to Confirm the Storys is Ended That’s just Here Say. As of right NOW Zxzxzx is the Only Reliable person Translating the Shinmai Novels Unless this other person wants to Step up and Register themself on BT as New TL for it there is Nobody who is @ the moment.

        There is another site that is translating it, but they have hired someone to do it so you have to contribute a donation to get access to the translations.

        • 0

          0

          What Sites ? Do they Offer pdf and epub downloads after this so called Donation to get it. Why should we have to pay for something Zxzxzx provides us for FREE when he completes a volume. How far are these other site. Are they above or below where Zxzxzx is now. Zxzxzx is trustworthy and Reliable while those other sites are clearly Not if they don’t offer the novels to the Public. Donation don’t mean they will get the novels translated any faster if there not Translating them but paying someone else who could Stop for any Reason at anytime.

            I don’t know anything about their quality or the format they use. I didn’t pay it, I was simply providing the information that there is a another translator but you have to pay to access it.

            Okay so you can’t provide a site address , Price , Format or even know if it’s Reliable then another Translator don’t Exist outside What BT has listed as a Active Translator. The Only Proof someone is Working on the Shinmai Series is Zxzxzx. If you have to Paid to get Translation from someone other then Zxzxzx it’s not Trustworthy to use. Please don’t start Rumors that it’s begin translated somewhere else without proof to back up the claim. Zxzxzx is the Active TL and Only TL for this series.

            This is why I mostly ignore comments here. Just because you didn’t know about it before doesn’t mean that it isn’t true or doesn’t exist, and definitely doesn’t mean that you can then get sarcastic or bossy with other commenters. I’m fairly positive that I found out about it myself from a comment here on zx’s blog.  With that said, the site is https://shinmaimaoutranslation.wordpress.com and the minimum contribution is $10 to gain access to content. I didn’t pay to get access because, on this point, I agree with you, zxzxzx’s translations are superior to most fan translations I have found and with them being free to us, which I am highly appreciative of, can’t be beaten.

            I won’t be commenting back about this so if you want more info you can go to their site.

            I get bossy because your just spouting nonsense. If it’s a Paid Site it’s not going to be trustworthy enough to be called a Translater. Have you ever used that site. There is no way to tell if there on the level that Zxzxzx is and if they will even attempted to finish the novels to the End. If by chance there is someone doing them good it would re-leave some of the stress off Zxzxzx but bad for Us who depend on Zxzxzx for these Trans because he doe’s them for Free. Don’t Spread Rumors that this series is begin done else where there is a catch for getting and your not sure if there on the Up and Up. This is Zxzxzx blog not your personal Facebook page so don’t post about where to find novels in other places. I’m not 100% sure Zxzxzx would approve of his hard work going to waste for nothing.

      Well, I appreciate the thought, but the other translation team has been commissioned to do the work, and that prevents them from putting their translation on Baka-Tsuki, even if they wanted to do that. Baka-Tsuki does not allow paid translations.

Is this persons going to make the them Free to read Like Zxzxzx does with download links for pdf’s and epubs included. If not then it’s not worth waiting for this other Translator to do them when Zxzxzx is more Reliable.

        Ignore prior post OD. Meant to say I believe you would not give false Information about Vol25 is Last before it changes Names But Why is it changing. Will the change be a Contiuation where Vol 25 leaves off or is it more of Reboot / Spin Off.

          I never mind as you are my mate

          Shin Highschool  dxd is a sequel of original highschool dxd means in summer new volume will come with name SHIN HIGHSCHOOL DXD VOLUME 1 will be continuation from where hs dxd v25 left

           

          Saying about why name changed it is question better directed to author…       But we may only guess due to

          1. Publishing issue as ichei ichibumi wants more volume than 30 as publishers restricted to publish beyond 30.

          2.high school dxd name as basic and max powerup would be DxD but author want AxA and ExE.

            Thanks for the Info. Like Zxzxzx said No spoilers please. But do you know in what Month the change will happen. I also wounder if Zxzxzx will pick up Shin Highschool Dxd or just fouces on other Novels he’s still in the middle of TL’ing. He deserves a break after vol 25 in complete I’m only guessing here but it would be a shame if he don’t continue it. Acourse I would like to see Shinmai Maou cought up sence vol 12 is the last volume and I don’t recall how many are left of Seikoku no Ryuu kishi before starting a new Series/ Continuation of the next chapter of the Dxd line. But this is just me and wishful thinking on my part. I have no clue what Zxzxzx will do or when. The suspense of waiting for what happens next in Shinmai is KILLING me thou. I hate waiting for long periods of time to read another volume but I can’t read Japanese so there is nothing I can do.

      1st – someone said that i am indin. how the hell you get that in you small foolish mind, making things of its own. well i am from- ‘why should i tell it to some morons’

      2nd-To those who think that like them i am free things eater. well to make it clear i am having yen press first three manga of dxd(not having plan to buy more), rias mouse-pad(google it if you dont know what is it). I have all volume of deadman wonderland(manga), accel world(light novel) and much more manga.

      You idiots said “buy dxd light novel” well to let you know i am not a BAKA like you who will buy a book written in another language to throw it in trash. really i always thing that are you really moron, who would do that, at least tell that for supporting author buy English DVD(which i will not), bed cover(planning to buy of other series), manga which would be of any use to me.BUT NO ‘buy lightnovel to throw it in trash’ really a foolish thing. I want to know why you people show this level of foolishness.

      and a thing to zxzxzx. why are there font, size, picture option for comment section if they dont work.

            Well I try really hard to just Ignore dumb comments. Compared to last year where I said my 2 cents worth on every disrespectful post asking Zxzxzx about the next Chapter or Volume would be done. Some people are Ungreateful and rude about the way they ask for FREE public novels it’s sort of nerve recking to just sit and not say anything. What people don’t seem to understand is Zxzxzx does these Translations in his spare time bewteen Work and Collage and post them for Us Free of Charge. Where if you went and Paid for a single novel to be translated by a Paid TL person it would cost up to 400.00 per volume because they charge by the page trust me or not I’ve know made that misstake myself awhlie back. Translating is not Easy and very time consuming. Plus Zxzxzx don’t translate the JP raws very offten but uses Chinese Raws when they become availible.

      It’s a fan translation. I haven’t got a Japanese copy yet, I’m planning to buy it next month when I’ll need it. There might be somewhere that you can find it, but it’s usually quite difficult to locate one within the first five to six months of release so I wouldn’t bother at this stage.

          Yeah I agree they should stick to the light novel story as much as possible but that don’t always happen when the anime is producted. Most of the time the story is chopped to shorten the time frame to fit Tv time slots. I could name about 100 different Animes that had a Original ending that the Manga / LN did not or they just lefted a To be Continued ending of the Story.

I know because I follow all of them believe me or not i don’t care all that really matters is How this season will play out if they following the Light novel story or make up a New ending after 12 episodes. But as apart  time Otaku I hope they stick to the novels and less filler story.

      V23 is around twenty percent longer than V22, and roughly the same length as V21. It does have more chapters, though many of the upcoming ones are quite brief.

      I’m a person who TRY’S to not Comment on People STUPID Update questions all the time. But some People can’t understand simple English to Stop asking for Updates. When Zxzxzx post them it’s on the Home page and the one who are subscribers get a email notification too. So Translations is a Hobby not a Full time job that takes his FREE time to do for Us and he don’t get paid for doing it. Real life problems happen they come before anything else so sometimes that means Translations will be delayed and most Fans coming here don’t seem to understand that point of view. Zxzxzx knows I try not to be rude on his blog but it’s hard to do when people just don’t listen and keep repeating to same question. ” When will Vol ??? be Done” or ” how long does it take to finish a Volume I’m waiting to see it complete”. That’s the same as asking for a ETA witch he can’t give since it hard to judge on the time frame if he hit’s any snags along the way. This year I’m not gonna reply that often to comments but will still be watching. When he post a Update it’s on the Home page where announcements can be found concerning Translations and When you ask for any type of eta/update it’s consider disrespectful. They will be done when there done.

When the Next Chapter or Volume is Finished it will be DONE and No ETA will be given. Don’t you think asking repeatedly over and over and over is Disrespectful to him. He always updates to the Home Page when he can and Personal Life comes before Translations so Sometimes This (HOBBY will be Delayed and he don’t need to be Reminded there things he has left Unfinished until he gets to it.) I Don’t care if you don’t like me your just 1 person in this Big Big World.

          1) I don’t need to Chill it’s the People like you who keep asking for Updates that need to Chill. (eagerly waiting for the complete translated volume 23) is the same as asking for an Update. It don’t help him get through the Translations any faster.

          2) Not angry only annoyed when People can’t understand simple English. He has a LIFE outside these Novels and When he gets Free time He’ll Update the Blog.

    Thanks for hardwork you have done till now

    Just wanted to ask weather SLASHDOG is related to dxd in any case . Is it beneficial to read it.

     

    • 0

      SLASHDOG is something akin to a prequel of DxD. It’s set a few years before where the MC is Ikuse Tobio and from my understanding, it should be more about the Five Principal Clans, the Grigori and Sacred Gears. There are quite a few characters that cross over so I think it would be an enjoyable read.

    Hi,

    I really admire the work done by zxzxzx in this novel, translating novels for free requires courage and grit and the way novels are translated is outstanding. I have become fan of your work. Till this time, I refrained from commenting here but I think it becomes my responsibility to say thanks to those who have made this novel great.
    I have one request to make? It is kind of selfish but please bear with me.

    After reading the completed volumes, I came across High school DX, Please clarify what it is about? Is it somehow related to main story, should I read it?

    P.S. :- Thanks for work you have done till now zxzxzx and thanks in advance for your future work.

Where getting them now because When it ends finally there will be no further Volumes published. I believe there are 2 finished Dx story’s currently and the 3rd is not Translated yet and the 4th is TBA or not Released yet. Someone else asked if Zxzxzx was gonna translate the 4th Dx story but Zxzxzx don’t translate them another Translator by Daniel does and his blog is @ https://sonohana1209.wordpress.com/

      The DX series are short story compilations. References are sometimes made to events that occur in these short stories from the main volumes, so it’s a good idea to read them as well.

    Happy 2018 dear author!

    Wishing you the best this year!

    Will you do a translation for DX.4 (Volume 23.5) ?

    Just curious… maybe after finishing Volume 23 itself though Volume 25 is already coming up.

    Do take your time though my friend.

      I’m really Trying not to sound Rude since it’s the Holiday’s but Can’t you Read the Headlines on the Homepage where Zxzxzx has already explained that there is No further Updates to Dxd vol 23 until sometime after the 1st of the New Year. That Means he will pick Up where he left off to Finish Vol 23 soon. Translations take time and if Everyone WHO Keeps as for Updates AND YOU KNOW WHO YOU ARE is that much in A Hurry to Read Vol 23 Complete. Download the Raw from Jcafe24 and Use Google Translate to do it yourself otherwise Just sit back Drink some Hot Chocolate or Spiced Eggnog and Read something else Until Zxzxzx gets the Time to Finish Vol 23 in his Spare time. You all do know that Vol 24 has been out since Nov 17 2017 and Vol 25 is soon to release Probably Feb-April 2018. My Point is Everytime someone ask when will it be updated it only Slows him down in Translating the novels to answer your Consent Complaints about (Update ETA). People like Zxzxzx have Real everyday Life’s that Take Priority over a Hobby like Fan Service and I for 1 believe Zxzxzx has earned the Right to take a Break every now and then too Chill from this Hobby. Updates will Resume After the 1st of the New Year Sometime.

        wtf are you taking it negatively? I just asked when will zxzxzx will finish volume 23!! so that I will do some other stuffs and wait for it!! in other ways I’m anticipating the date of release fool!!

        • 0

          1

          Because it’s people like YOU who think Zxzxzx owes you something I can’t Stand.  He’s not gonna tell you when Vol 23 will be Done if he has not already Stated it on the Homepage where you can Find simple Information. If you took the time to read through Other Comments you would have Seen your not the only Person who I’ve Told to STOP asking for UPDATES. When it’s DONE it will be DONE. He can’t give you a Eta cause Translations are not easy and if they where anyone could do it. If you have time to complain and ask for eta’s learn to Translate and download the raws from Jcafe24. If your anticipating it’s release then do it in Silences. If you think I’m rude to you it’s only because Zxzxzx is too kind of a Person to tell you himself. So just Be Quite and Wait  until he post More Updates Sometime AFTER the New Year. I’m not gonna continue the Comment because I too am not begin Disrespectful to Zxzxzx when i keep addressing and Asking people like you who don’t understand to Stop with the Question for eta on next Update. Topic Dropped.

            And Who the Hell are You to DEMAND Updates from Zxzxzx just because you can’t Sit and Wait until after the 1st of the New Year. He does this for Us for FREE in his Spare Time have some Respect and Common cents since it’s the Holidays Jack***. I can’t tell you it’s been Delayed cause it’s been this ways for awhile now. When it’s Done it’s DONE so S.T.F.U.A.W. (shut the fu** up and wait).

      Just Read Other Novels in the Meantime there are Hundreds besides Dxd to Choose from on the Internet or WAIT Silently like the Rest of US until after the New Year like Zx Said he would Re-start Translations and No further Translations until then.

      Again to everyone PLEASE STOP ASKING FOR UPDATES OKAY

      Your waiting that’s nice to know so Keep on Waiting! Next Update will come when Zxzxzx has Free time from Everyday Life not when people demand it. Fan Translation is a Hobby you know? Zxzxzx has the right to take breaks in Between School , Work , Family , Friends, and Everyday life. I’m sure he is working as quickly as Possible to finish what he can get done in spare time so he can post it but Real Life Comes First. Please Have Some Respect for Him and Stop asking for Updates to EVERYONE.

        • 0

          2

          When you ASK for Updates Knowing Full well Zxzxzx Does this in Spare Time as Quickly as he Can outside Real Life Problems THAT’S DEMANDING and DISRESPECTFUL since he does this for FREE to US. I also included STOP asking for Updates to EVERYONE not just Him. The next Chapter will BE DONE when it’s DONE so Stop ASKING. Zxzxzx already replied to a Prior comment there will be No MORE Updates to Dxd This Year Meaning He will pick it back Up after the first of the New Year. Please get a CLUE he Has his own Life outside this Translation HOBBY that is Priority.

        I agree with you some people just ask but some know zxzxzx is trying his best on his spare time cause zxzxzx will do it however when people ask him again again he will not do it but he awesome and nice and people take it for granted maurice at least us who respect zxzxzx and look up to him and we truly grateful towards him to translate these novels cause i seen some people translate the novels and they stop cause they are done with it however zxzxzx keeps on to make the fans of the novels happy i think he should do what ever he wants he can wait 5 months or 6 months or a year to take a break from translating to behonest i can wait that long to have novels be translated it might take 2 years but i will still wait what about you maurice.

          Thanks. People just don’t understand How hard Translating these novels are and it takes time. My Point is If people don’t stop asking for updates it’s gonna take longer for him to finished because He will feel Pressured and Might lead to Him Quitting altogether when Ungrateful Fans Demand updates. I don’t know if others are Translating this Series it’s News to me since the ONLY active Translator is Zxzxzx outside Code-Zero who Helps Sometimes but not Active because he quit fully Translating this series more then a year ago so Zxzxzx picked it Up.

          To EVERYONE PLEASE STOP ASKING FOR UPDATES Zxzxzx already address there will be NO further Progress on any chapters until AFTER the NEW YEAR on the HOME PAGE.

        In that case will you have the next part done before the 14th? That when it will be decided if net neutrality will remain or not.

          No, I don’t anticipate any further progress on DxD this year. I doubt that net neutrality will have that much of a significant impact in the near future. Even if we lose net neutrality, ISPs don’t yet have the manpower or technical ability yet to implement it.

    Zxzxzx, i want to thank you for your work thus far and your future work. I am not a very active reader so i originally started the anime after my little brother had mentioned it was a good show. After i had finished the seasons avalible i was caught up in “what happens next”. I then turned to the internet and found your translation of the volumes, i desided to start at volume 1 and now after 2 weeks i am at volume 23 life 2 part 4. I understand that the translations take time and that you only have so much time in your day to spare. Please do not see this as “Hurry up”, i just wanted to thank you for what you have done for those of us who are wanting to read the series. I greatly await the rest of volume 23! Again, Thank You!

    Anonymous Clearly Said Chinese Translators So he Insulted Zxzxzx on his Progress Speed. You don’t Insult people who are doing this for FREE to the public if you except it to be released. His Comment was Very Disrespectful and Inappropriate. Nobody cares if he is Off to Military Boot camp Soon or Not. Translation Speeds are done by How much Free time a Person has to spare from there Daily Lives not on someone Demanding it be done. It will be done when zxzxzx Finishes it and Hopefully People like Anonymous don’t discourage Zxzxzx from any further Release because of his Comment.

    Whoever the Chinese translator is fucking sucks. This volume was released in Japan in March 2017, it’s not even two whole months until the end of the year, and not even one whole month til I ship out to boot camp, and we still don’t even have half of it. Not mad at zxzxzx, just frustrated with the Chinese translator and wanted to vent.

      Sorry if this sounds Rude but have you tired looking on the Home Page and the Right hand side Colume it always Tells US where Zxzxzx is @ on the Translation. For an Example ( Last Update – Dxd v23 Life 2 Part 2 of 4 3/10) Then a little further Down Reads (Aim) Don’t have one at the moment…. That means Right now He Probably Busy with School and Don’t have any spare time to Finish the Translation but will be done @ some point. And to answer your Next Question there is No other Translator working on This Novel the Other person who did only Does Co-op Work when asked because he Dropped the Project a while back and Zxzxzx picked it Up after that. Please always check the Home Page for any Updates.

    Hi I’m considering becoming a translator and I have a few questions.

    1) What are the requirements to become a translator?

    2) Do other translators give the untranslated version of chapters to be translated to other translators? I only ask because I don’t want to have to spend any money translating

    • 0

      2

      I’m not Zxzxzx but can Part answer your question. Zxzxzx would need to answer your question Fully since he knows best.

      1.) A lot of Time. also it depends on what Language you choose to Translate from. Stick to what you know. (Example is Zxzxzx Translates from Chinese Raws because he knows some Chinese.) There are Some Tools out on the Internet that can Help Like Goolge Translate but there not always 100%. So Having Knowledge of the Language you what to Translate from or Having Someone Help you Translate would be best before Starting.

      2.) No Other Translators don’t give Raws (Untranslated)  to Other Translators unless you plan on working with another Translator that Translates Half and you do the Other. There’s only a couple of ways to get them. Wait for Months and Months after there Released before Someone Uploads the Raws for Free either on jcafe24 or Nyaa.si or Buy the Digital Copy’s yourself from sites like Bookwalker, Amazon.jp.co, and other online stores that sell Non-English Light Novel Books. Nothing is FREE in this World and Translators doing Translations are no Expectation.

      1. Okay, your question is really broad…so I’ll give a more general answer. If you’ve got a more specific question, feel free to ask.

      • Language: I’m going to assume that your question refers to fan-translation of light novels and manga. Most of these are released in Japanese, Chinese, or Korean as their original or licensed translation language. If you are interested in becoming a translator, you should be aiming for fluency in one or more of these languages. Learning a language takes time and devotion. Each language is different, and it also depends on how much time you can spare each day or week to learning. As far as these Asian (and Arabic) languages go, it usually takes 2 to 3 years (assuming time set aside for daily study) to reach an intermediate level (can read manga and novels) because they are so different from English.

      • Patience and perseverance: You will need patience when learning a language, and also when translating. You will get frustrated that you cannot read things, or aren’t able to understand a sentence. You might spend hours mulling over a particular phrase. So be prepared for that, and have the mindset to see things through to the end.

      2. I’m afraid things will be tougher for you if you don’t want to spend any money on translating. Translation comes at the cost of your time to begin with, but in order to obtain the material that you want, you either have to buy it yourself (unless it is publicly available, e.g. a web novel), or get a copy from someone who has bought it and is willing to share. There are plenty of raw novels and manga available on jcafe24.net, and they are uploaded by generous contributors. You may also find them on other sites, though they it may take some more digging. Do note though that not everything will be available for free – the series that you really want to translate may not have raws that you can access for free, and you will either be forced to buy it, or translate something else.

      I can’t speak for all translators, but I’m personally okay with sharing my raws with other translators and helping them out. I’m happy to see something that I like being translated, so I’d gladly share if asked. But each translator obviously buys the novels or manga that they want to read or work on, and it is less likely for a translator to have raws of a series that they are not working on. So if you were working together with other translators on the same project, they might be generous enough to share their raws, but they might not. And if you wanted to work on a project on your own, it’s more likely that you’ll have to buy the raws.

        Thanks and I would like to help you out if you can send me the raws or parts of the raws of some your projects for Highschool DxD then I can translate it. I know a decent amount of Chinese and Japanese. Also quick question when translating to english why are words like sama and chan in the English translation?

        • 1

          0

          I’ll send you an email later today regarding those. Japanese honorifics and some words are kept in the English translation because there is no sufficient way to represent them in English without losing some of the original meaning.

      When he feels like it. Translators do this for FREE in there spare time they don’t get paid and can stop @ anytime for any reason. When people don’t think before they ask for eta’s on this kind of stuff it only puts the Translators off on wanting to do them even more if they already don’t like the series.

        Maurice,

        You really need to stop. Some people donate to zxzxzx and your rude behavior is not helping. All you need to do is reply with “look at the homepage” or “Zxzxzx already posted a plan or reason why Life 2 has not been released”. Over the past several months I’ve seen your post with similar replies and some of them have been so rude that zxzxzx called you out. You need to stop.

        • 0

          1

          I don’t need to do anything nor do I need to listen to you. Just because someone Donates to this blog to help Zxzxzx buy his Raws don’t mean your entitled to harass the Translator. When people keep asking WHEN WILL IT GET RELEASED it falls under Harassment. News flash buddy there are thousands of Maurice out in the World with my name and 45 in California where I live dude. Zxzxzx never called me out because i was not the person leaving rude comments. The Funny person using my name was get your information right. I only comment when necessary on others reply’s when they can’t read down this section to find simple Information. Also if you look it clearly read for the past Month while Zxzxzx was on Vacation there where NO PLANS for when he will start or finish Vol 23. I meaning Myself told everyone who could understand plain English that a Assessment of when Zxzxzx would start vol23 is Late August Early September and would most likely been finished in October since Zxzxzx paces has slowed some from back in May-July on releasing the novels. If you don’t like my reply I don’t care but I’m tired of the same Jokers always asking the same darn thing week after week after week. Get it through your Heads it will BE DONE WHEN IT”S DONE. For example I asked Zxzxzx over a year ago to pick up a Special project if he could and it’s been nearly a year since his last update but you don’t see Me Demanding for Status on it do you. NO because I know Zxzxzx is very Busy and does all this in his spare time and when he updates me he updates me.

      He’s on Vacation in Japan right now and Translations on all Series have stopped until he Returns sometime in August but that don’t mean we’ll see any progress in Vol 23 maybe for a bit more. A guesstimate would probably be September if not later for life 2+. hopefully by November or December all of V23 will be done and pdf made but that’s just me Hoping.

          well I’m sorry if you think your entitled to Zxzxzx Translation to be done on your time-frame. If you can’t wait until he Returns to pick them back up you and anyone else Who are impatience Can go buy the Japanese or Chinese Raws to Translate them yourself Otherwise Shut Up and WAIT like the Rest of us. Complaining is not going to make Him come back any soon. People have the right to go on Vacation and don’t need anyone’s Permission to do so. Just be glad there is someone out there taking there Spare time to still translate these light novels after they have been licensed. Sorry if i sound like a asshole but i hate when people feel like there entitled to something for Nothing.

            I agree with you he does these things out of good will and I think it be best if people don’t bug him while he on vacation cause he got license to make copy light novels and he got permission to translate these novels as well we owe a lot of things to zxzxzx cause he give us these novels to read.

            Yes he is on Vacation and will return sometime in August but no he don’t have a Licensed to copy Novels no Publisher will give you a License to do that. These are Legit bought Physical or Digital copy’s of the Light Novel online in either Japanese where these things come from or as in Zxzxzx Case Chinese Raw witch he Translates from. As for Translating them it’s self only if the Novel is not Published it’s safe to Translate without the worry of a DMCA notice begin sent to you. With these Novels on the other ARE LICENSED by a Publisher witch makes it illegal to translate them without the Authors Consent. So Long Story Short if the DMCA found out these novels are begin translated and where the Person is Zxzxzx he could get in a lot of trouble and forced to Remove all Content of this series from the Internet Permanently and his Blog shut down and his Internet Access under government watch all the time for illegal content. So the People here just need to quit bothering him and Thank GOD or whatever Religion you come from when using this blog that he has the balls to continue the Series without worrying about the What if possibility.

      There are currently 23 released volumes. I am currently translating the latest volume. Please see my FAQ for the answers to your other questions, though to sum up, I am not fluent in Japanese or Chinese, therefore you shouldn’t expect translations to get pumped out like a machine.

      I’ll answer your question

      1. There are 22 finshed volumes but only 21 PDF’s Made so far.

      2. Most likey there will be a total of 30 volumes before the series Ends

      3. Zxzxzx is not Japanese.

      4. Chinese is the 2nd Language he learned to translate from so that what Raws he gets to work with.

      5. Doing translations is not easy and very time Consuming. I do agree volume 22 took way longer then Zxzxzx normal speed but I’m sure he had a reasons for it’s delay. Plus Real Life like Work , School , Family and things of that nature come before any Hobby so that Contributes to some delays.

    Just want to say thank you translating this series into English. This is my favorite series right now and I don’t think another 1 will top for awhile. Once I found out the story was much farther ahead then the anime and manga, I had to find it, but people send it was only in Japanese, until I found your blog and translating them. It must be hard and time consuming to do this. Can’t wait to see how the series will go, so thank you again man!

      Neither have been made yet. There might be fan-made ones around somewhere, I think I’ve seen one in a comment somewhere.

      If I couldn’t find any of these​ two, I might just copy the text to a txt file and read it. Via phone.

      Which volumes are you referring to? For PDFs, there are plenty of apps on the Play Store, such as Adobe Reader. You can also load each page on your mobile browser while on wifi, and then save them as HTML onto your phone so that you can load them without a network connection.

      The Short answer is NO. Z and Code-Zero are the only one’s doing the Translations for Dxd and Like Vol 22 they each took half to translate. It will be done in due time just wait.

      He already answered that awhile ago. Vol 23 will be started in a Few Months because he either wants to take a Break or Finish other Translations first that’s been on hold since he Started Vol 22 back in September of Last year. Vol 22 was delayed for School work and Holidays witch is Understandable but Unusual for him to delay it so long. He’s always been on top of getting the material out asap.

      I’m not sure about any links that Zxzxzx might have given out in the Past but for Now there is NO epub or Pdf made for volume 22. the site will be updated if and When someone makes a High Quality Pdf and Zxzxzx approves it to be added. If people can’t wait for the pdf then by all means stop asking and make one yourself otherwise WAIT.

        well I’ve been reading Manga and watching Anime for more then 10 years So it’s a good way to pass time when waiting for a LN to be translated. Where only on volume 23 when it gets translated so there still more to come. Zxzxzx was asked 1year ago about how many LN of Dxd would we Except to see before it Finally End’s and his reply was up to Volume 30. So there’s going to be along time before it’s over and plenty to Read.

    Just wondering when Vol 22 will go to PDF?  I know this is one of those dreaded when questions… but i only ask this because it seems that all the hard work (being all the chapters) are done.

     

    And this also must be said.  THANK YOU.   It’s a big thank you for all the hard work done on the English readers behalf.  Without folks like you we would be so worse off.  so thank you.

          Zxzxzx already stated that the people over @ Baka Tsuki has to edit and do changes as needed before Someone will makes a pdf for it first but if you can’t wait like the rest of us make one your DAMN self nobody is stopping you and if you don’t like my reply I don’t care since you obviously are Ungrateful for Zxzxzx hard work Translating this series so that makes you Untitled for making Demands regarding pdfs. Demanding for People to make you a Document file because your lazy will get you nowhere. Before you start calling people names since I did not insult you might want to watch your mouth or you could wined up getting yourself Banned and don’t think it can’t happen it’s not hard to trace the IP your using back from Z’s end it’s called Ip Ban Mr Me. I was going to retaliate with Some foul language of my own but I have more Respect then you do for other peoples blogs.

    Thanks for Finally Finishing V22 it seems you have been very busy and this volume took longer then Usually to get done. But Real Shit happens and Real Life that is out of ones control and need to be dealt with before hobbies can be completed. Hoping when you get around to starting the next volume it will not take so long to finish. Thanks for always updating and thanks for the resent update about internet Security. Makes me think how Secure my PC is with current Configuration. Should I Keep using my Nortons Security that I pay to renew every year to keep me safe on the old Interweb or Try a New Program I’ve heard about but not sure if it’s better then what I have already. ( Bitdefender).

      Bitdefender has a better reputation and performs better in testing environments consistently. Norton probably isn’t too bad either, and many people would rather stick with what they have than go to the trouble of switching.

        true but I’ve recently been told that having any Norton’s AV or Security Program is more Harmful to one’s PC then the Other and Better AV programs like Bitdefender and that Norton’s don’t protect as well as i though it did. Like it add’s unwanted files , lets some Viruses in undetected and Installs Rootkit files without permission that Slows down the Performances of the PC everytime it Live Updates. That’s why I’m thinking on switching asap but wanted your Opinion.

          I don’t follow the news of Norton or Symantec much nowadays, but that all sounds like a hoax to me.

     Hey does anyone know when Ise met Elmenhilde again? Azazel mentions Ise meeting her a second time and Ise mentions meeting her during the New Year when going to Sobo-chan’s place in volume 21

      I really hope that it’s not the Last Volume Zxzxzx will translate that would be devastating since it would leave the Remaining 7 untranslated. Volume 30 is the Finally to the Series and something I’m looking forward too begin able to Read in English as a Translation.

          It sounds like you’re trying to access my site on a Nintendo console, but my site uses a newer encryption certificate that is not compatible with the browser on the console because it’s somewhat outdated. I’d suggest trying on your phone, tablet or PC.

          Where all Hugefans of Highschool Dxd. He still in the Progress of completing volume 22 and has addressed Volume 23 would be worked on after a few months of completing v22. Dxd is not the only project/ novel he has on his plate and the one’s on Hold with be finished before his starts 23. please wait until then. when people keep asking the same question that been asked and answered 100x it slow down his translation time to answer comments.

    I havent read any spoilers on volume 23 actually havent found them yet but i just soo wish to see ise to propose asia this time.. and how he is going to do it.

    In the same way he proposed akeno and rias.. and if not asia then which he will propose in this volume as ichibumi said each volume for each heroine.
