        I was thinking about it and I realized that this Maurice guy is most likely a very lonely and unfortunate person. Internet trolls and hate spewers tend to be people who are alone (usually due to a downward spiral of decisions they themselves made that resulted in people ostracizing them) in the real world so they reach out in ways over the internet, generally negative due to their personal anger/sadness, simply to gain attention. We’re probably the only people who interact with this guy and the fact that he’s here on the eve or start of the New Year (depending on where you are) proves this. It’s kind of like the school bullies who bully others because of severe inferiority and self-esteem complexes and broken homes or because of attention issues. So, he basically lacks attention from those around him personally.

        Still, that really doesn’t change the fact that it’s up to Maurice to improve his life and as such he needs to learn from his actions and reach out to others in a positive way in the real world. Hate comments on the internet will not help him and neither will our responses to his comments. He doesn’t respond anyway.

        I think the best course of action for everyone, Maurice included so that he can gain the help he needs from people in his own life by reaching out to the people physically near him, would be to simply ignore everything he posts from now on. Internet trolls and hate spewers give up once their supply of attention stops. If we don’t acknowledge him it will stop, probably not right away, but eventually.

          I do have to agree with you J9162. I mean, trolls and the like are common, and are occasionally just there to poke fun, but a consistent person like this is probably experiencing what you’ve described – and it will indeed be best to ignore them.

            Yeah exactly. It’s not unheard of and I’ve known people who have experienced such issues and even acted similarly to him with similar problems, so that’s probably the case. Just letting it go and ignoring it is the best option. Nothing we can do.

    I don’t understand all the fighting and insults going on. Can we just wait patiently for the updates? I am a huge fan of DxD and I understand the pain of not understanding japanese and waiting for chapter updates, but we have to understand that another Fan is translating this for us on his own free will. For that i’m grateful to zxzxzx because without him or Code zero we wouldn’t be able to read this great novel.

            I am both old, and old fashioned. I grew up in a time when a man’s word was his bond, and it wasn’t given lightly. When you told someone that a job, free or charged, would be done on a certain date, it was. No excuses. You just did what the hell you said you were going to do. Can’t do it? Don’t fucking say it.

            I don´t mind my own buisness, when a small child like you insult someone who is so nice and does the whole translating thing on his own free will.

            He doesn´t even ask you for money.

            If you really were such a adult as you told, you would wait with patience.

            Get it right. I never insulted Zxzxzx. I called him out for not doing what he said he would do. There’s a huge difference. But I doubt you’re intellectually evolved enough to know that. (That was an insult, btw).

             

            If he were to ask for money, I would gladly chip in. Would not be the first translation I’ve paid/helped pay for.

             

            Lastly, I was patient, past the point we were asked to be patient until. I checked things out daily in the hopes of “possibly earlier” and never complained a word when that didn’t happen. I understand the meaning of “possibly”. When the time ran out, I was disappointed and said so. If you can’t understand that, just keep sucking your thumb until you grow up enough and are able to. (Insult again, in case you missed it.)

            Have a nice day!

            Thanks, Zxzxzx for the coming update and for letting us know about it.

      If you bothered to read his comments on the life 4 page you’d see that he’s already been finished with it for some time, but he’s just editing it to make sure it’s as good as it can be, for our enjoyment (don’t complain if there’s typos if you don’t want any edits).

      If anyone is that impatient, feel free to exercise your free will as humans and go and translate it yourself. The self-imposed deadlines are for himself primarily to be a goal to work towards. Real life happens and sometimes more pressing issues interfere with the free hobby translation service he provides to those of us taking advantage of it. He has no reason to adhere to any of your requests or even his deadlines. He’s not contractually bound to you in any legal sense and he certainly owes you nothing in general. Be grateful he’s even doing it.

      The real world is far worse than a missed fan translation deadline. I envy those of you who have nothing more pressing and worrying to complain about.

          No problem zxzxzx. Unlike the few loser self-entitled cowardly trolls who have unfortunately decided to plague the comment section here, I know what it’s like to actually live in the real world and have a life so I understand completely when life gets busy.

          The vast majority of your readers understand that too and appreciate everything you do. You don’t need me to tell you this, but take as long as you need to take care of your life first. No matter how long any delay is (days,  months, years, doesn’t matter), I’ll be here when you get back (even the hypocritical trolls will unfortunately). Like I said, you owe us nothing and the majority of us are completely grateful for the free translations you provide.

      I was actually anticipating for this guy comment to come out rather than DxD Life 4 cause it’s fun to watch him get mad and rage. It fills my life watching someone else get mad and shit and it’s even more entertaining cause it’s real life and we got to watch him reply to other’s people comment while giving excuses. If you see this message please continue with that you’re doing, because of you I got to fill my free time watching you get mad and shit.          PS Keep Up The Good Work @ Maurice Bartlett.

          He’s a bitter person who’s famous for that. If you want to see his other antics, perhaps try Ariel saeba’s blog.

          He’s been banned from an*mesuki, exactly because of those antics. I only wish we can ban him and anifreik here too.

      If you’re not happy with the situation, you can always leave, mate. No one is holding a gun to your head to stay here.

      The same applies to the rest of you impatient people, including anifreik below this.

      ‘I am old’ ‘keep your word’ ‘no excuses’;  this is not a contracted job where you have to deliver as stated. Yes, I agree, he should try to keep his promise, but the dates he outlined are merely estimates. As mentioned by so many, this is merely a hobby, thus real life matters are far more important. Also, it is now holiday season, I wouldn’t blame him if he decided to do other things between his hobbies. So please, spare us the dramas and lectures.

      Again, if you’re not happy, you can simply leave (and maybe attempt to translate them yourself, let’s see how you go, wise and tough one)

      I guess zxzxzx won’t translate maiyaku no leviathan, he has already 3 projects that he wants to finish and if you look on bakatsuki you will see your light novel has already translator. And as much i see volume 8 was released at 13/12 so you can’t expect that zzhk has finished the translation in a week

    hey 3x love your work, but i have an idea, how about you share your translations with code zero so that both of you guys have less work to do for example your doing life 4 now how about you have code do life 5 and when he is finished you continue onto life six and on.

    After reading It Begins Feast, it seems that the next arc officially begins then or at the start of Life 4. Also,  it seems that in the DX 3 side story volume there’s a beach trip story that happens in the middle of volume 22, as it’s a post graduation trip, but happens before the tournament. I wonder if the tournament will actually take up the rest of this arc or if something unexpected happens? (probably the latter)

        He might also try Masou Gakuen HxH, it’s translated to English through all 9 volumes published, with the next out I believe in January. It’s a bit racier than DxD, let’s just say that Issei would cry tears of blood… 🙂

    Sorry to put this on here as it has nothing to do with anything your working on but i was just wondering as someone that is going to learn there first other language so i can try and help out people that like you who have exams and RL things going on would it be better to learn Japanese or Chinese first? I don’t really know what language most translators use when they first start out, any ideas will help.

    • zxzxzx says:

      0

      0

      Most people tend to go one route or the other, rather than both because languages are tedious things which may take years to learn. Learning Japanese is probably a better idea if your primary purpose is to translate light novels or other Japanese media, as that is the original language and not everything gets translated to Chinese. If you have other things in mind when learning a language, such as whether it might be useful in your future career, then Chinese would probably be better. Given the large Chinese speaking population across the world, this can be more helpful in real life scenarios than Japanese.

      Hope this helps.

  22. Chris says:

    So you will begin translating from “It begins Feast” correct? since code-zero managed to get to life.3 and “it begins feast” comes before life.4 .

    • zxzxzx says:

      I will include “it begins feast”, but will start from life.4 because “it begins feast” is really just a single page “poster” which doesn’t require much work.

          As usual, daniel Yang, who translated DX and DX2 will be translating DX3 when the Korean release is available, provided that he is also not in the middle of exams or other things which may keep him otherwise occupied.

    Thanks for your translations zxzxzx 🙂

    I have one question, which is the correct translation for Risers and Ravels family name, Phenex or Phoenix?

    Sometimes people translate it as Phoenix, but i did some research on my own, the clans from the 72 pillars are based on the demons from the Lesser Key of Solomon Lemegeton and the demons name is phenex not phoenix. o.ó

      Well, I guess I’ve been doing it wrong then. It’s been translated as “Phoenix” for a while now though, and I continued that so I think it’s a little too late to change it now.

        Bakapervert use Phenex in Magika No Kenshi To Shoukan Maou too, and i goes both have the same origin o.ó

        Origin for people who want to know

        • DragonOsman2 says:

          0

          0

          He should change it because the actual name of the demon is Phenex.  And yes, of course the origin is the same.  The Divas that the people of Japan in Magika who don’t contract with the Japanese Divas themselves are the Solomon Mythology Divas.  All from the Lesser Key of Solomon, Lemegeton.  The main difference is that in Magika, Lemegeton is being depicted as the chief Diva of the mythology, when normally it’s shown as the grimoire on demonology that talks about the 72 Pillars of Solomon.  Or in other words, the Solomon’s 72 Pillars of Demon.  Recall that in this series as well, there are 72 Pillars.  It’s the same exact thing. Look at the names, too, for example.  We have Beelzebub, Gremory, Phenex, Vepar (the mermaid clan – in DxD, one of their kin showed up in a side-story).

    I want to say Thank you zxzxzx for translating DxD for us, it seems people can’t understand the effort you and other translators put in to a novel. I was looking around your blog and came across this section and my God this is awful. People demanding translations when they don’t even help or pay. I’m a big fan of DxD and i would hate to see translation being stop because of the immaturity of some people. I will be honest I do get desperate when i can’t read the next part of any novel i read, but i’m not the only one. DxD is a great series that deserves our full support.  Anyways Thank you again and i hope to read your work again. University is a pain in the ass Lol. I know because ima full student at college and I barely get any free time. So I understand that pain 🙂 

    Super Happy that Dxd will be getting a new season, i’m soo hyped that i jumped from my bed when i saw the announcement. Hahaha I went to college in full spirit that day. Hope we see Issei vs Sairaorg beautifully animated.

    From what part of DxD vol 22 are you going to translate since code-zero has done till life 2 are you going to continue from life 3 since there is no update since life 2 or do you have any other plans?

      Has it been two weeks yet since Code-Zero last updated?  You should keep in mind that he generally updates every two weeks.  If there’s no update even once the two weeks are up, then you can start worrying.

      Not set in stone at the moment, but I may start translating from the beginning of Life.4. However, I’m just starting to get busy as the end of the semester is approaching so I don’t know if I’ll be able to do much.

      Yep, and it’s pretty good.  The mini-chapter after it is done as well (the one telling us about Rias’ and Ise’s Tournament Teams).

        Yeah. That one has actually been there for a while actually, but I think he’s changed it a bit. I’m still waiting to find out who Bina Lessthan (if that’s even her real name)  and Mister Black are and also if Bina ends up up as his actual Queen piece and not just the team member. Now that he actually has his pieces, I feel like we’ll see him fill them throughout the rest of the series so it should be fun to see who they are.

            Go to shincodezero.wordpress.com. Volume 22 is in Story Arc 5, so look for that when you put mouse over “High School DxD”.  We’ve got Life.0, Life.1, Life.2 and Team Members.

            @J9162: There’s a chance that Mr. Black is Crom Cruach.  Most people on Animesuki Forums are thinking this.  And Bina is probably a new character.  She might also have Longinus.  I forget the name, but apparently, if you search the name “Binah” on the Internet, you might get a clue.

          • J9162 says:

            Ahhh I see. That’s very interesting. She must be one of those missing Longinus users then. That should prove to be a big help to Issei’s peerage, since I imagine she’ll join it. If this team is going to happen this volume though, then I imagine she should be introduced very soon.I know it’s still transitioning into the new arc. I wonder how things will play out from here.

            As it is there’s still a few characters that need some more development, especially some of the later harem additions. There hasn’t been very much interaction between Issei and Le Fay, Kuroka, or Elmenhilde, especially the first two, in many volumes. I’m not necessarily referring to romantic developments either per se, maybe for Kuroka though, but really just Issei having some kind of interaction with those characters in a meaningful way like he did with the others.

            So far, the last real development we saw with Kuroka was when she saved Koneko from dying and then from being in heat but that seems like it’s been many volumes ago haha (Has Koneko fully forgiven Kuroka? Will more light be shed on the details of their past? I’m sure there were other members of that peerage, what happened to them?). Other than that, there has been little to nothing from her.

            Definitely almost nothing about Le Fay except that she made a pact with Issei, which hasn’t been mentioned since (Also really hoping she joins Issei’s peerage mostly because otherwise I think she doesn’t have a 10k year lifespan right? Not sure if witches do or not).

            Elmenhilde didn’t even come off as a romantic interest when she was introduced in the vampire territory volume. Luckily we know from EX that she is, and then she blushed once when Issei was mentioned a volume or two ago. I heard that both Elmenhilde and Le Fay have side stories devoted to them, but they’re not translated in English if they do. I’ve only seen pictures, but have no idea what happens.

            Then of course I think Rosseweisse needs some more development too, but if she is going to be on his team then it’ll probably happen. The other girls, based on the plot, understandably have more interaction with Issei since they’re still in school and around him the most and such. I guess that’s really why it tends to focus more so on them.

            Of course there are other characters mentioned that are supposedly very important, but haven’t shown themselves much at all haha. Really just referring to Tiamat here. I really want to see her interact with Issei simply because she supposedly hates Ddraig haha. I’m hoping the reason why is revealed. It’d be great if she ended up in his peerage somehow. The flag was laid out in the near beginning of the story when she was referred to as basically the strongest familiar a devil could have. I definitely see that as a possibility for Issei.

            At any rate, it’s a wonder Ishibumi was able to do what he did with so many characters already. Truly a genius. Now I see why most harems don’t go past roughly 5-6 members haha. Well, the man sure has a knack for writing. Even though I mentioned we need more on the above characters, in all honesty they are still far better developed than certain core harem members I’ve seen in other series haha.

            @Dan: Yeah, like J9 said, you don’t have to be a god to have your own team.  And we also don’t really know yet if Crom Cruach is participating with his own team or if he’s in another person’s team.  We just think he might be in Rias’ team because it gives him a good chance to fight Ise.  Among other things.

            I don’t know if it matters if he’s a god class being. Anyone relatively strong enough can join the tournament. Whether he is Mister Black though, I don’t know. I’d imagine it’s a new character, kinda similar to Bina probably being a new character. Maybe not though, guess we’ll see.

      • DragonOsman2 says:

        0

        @Dan: Nope, sorry.  Grayfia being Bina wouldn’t be good.  Sirzechs is still alive inside that other dimension and will eventually come back, and there’s also no one to trade with right now so it’s impossible.  Bina might also become a permanent addition in Ise’s Peerage, granted he passes her evaluation (she’s testing him to see if he’s a good enough King, and will join his Peerage permanently if he can pass her test).  And she’d also be a part of his harem if she’s permanently in his Peerage because all of the girls in his Peerage will be added to his harem.  Grayfia can’t be in his harem because she Sirzechs’.  She loves only Sirzechs.  And I don’t like NTR.

        • CrimsonDarkness406 says:

          0

          0

          Another thing is that Bina’s Demonic power is on a level of a High-class devil, so it’s no way it could be Grayfia.

            Whoever said Grayfia’s isn’t, though?  That’s actually one of the things that could prove it’s her, if we actually knew how strong, Demonic power-wise, Grayfia actually is.  Which we actually don’t.

          • J9162 says:

            0

            0

            I believe Grayfia’s powers are considered Mao class, or ultimate class. She’s known as the strongest Queen for a reason. She’s on the level of the Mao’s. Sirzechs and Ajuka are above that of course, but generally speaking she’s the same as Asmodeus and Serafall at least.

            I guess I forgot about that part.  But yeah, if it’s true, then that does disprove Bina being Grayfia.  Thanks for this.

            0

            @Dan: You can’t just pick any current character just because you don’t think a new character would be a good idea.  That’s not how these things work.  And the fact of the matter is, Bina can only be a new character at this point because otherwise it wouldn’t make any sense.

            Also, it’s not “ture” or “processor”.  For the first one, the word you’re looking for is “true”.  For the second one: what are you, a computer?  Computers have processors in them (the chip, like the Intel Core i7 Processor).  The word you’re looking for is “possessor”.  “Longinus possessor”.

            0

            @Dan: I think there’s going to be a lot of new characters added in the coming volumes. Sure, this is the last arc, but that doesn’t mean it’s ending in the next volume haha, especially if you look at how long the Rizevim arc was.

            I’m guessing he will probably get pretty close to 30 volumes, especially if it’s true that he wants to try and flesh out Issei’s relationships with each of his current harem members more, giving them volumes specific to them (some will likely double up like Rias and Akeno are now), and probably add a few more new members too.

            Let’s also not forget more antagonists and other relvanet side characters will show up. We already saw a few. Tanin’s son Bova, that first year devil whose name I forgot, and clearly Bina will appear very soon, all of whom want to join Issei’s group in some way. Either in his peerage or as a regular attendant. Then there’s that god who showed up with Shiva as well. There’s going to be many more characters showing up for sure haha.

Thank you to the generous people who went out of their way to help out. As for the others, I do hope you’ll learn to be more polite in future as some things are better left unsaid.

If you truly can’t wait for the translation, translating it yourself is fairly easy. You just have to get pdf of the raw version, copy/paste in google traduction, copy/paste in docs and make a pdf… and then you’ll realize that nothing makes sense. The second option is to calmly wait for the next update :).

    Wow, recently there´s been an awful lot of ungrateful fuckers who think they have rights to demand a translation?? WTF??

    Seriously people if you just come here crying just because you don’t receive every little thing you asked then you’re worst than children you’re just pathetic beggars who deluded themselves to think they have any voice in this decisions.

    What? you think you have rights to say “But you promised!!” what are you? a Jilted girlfriend?? who the hell you think you are bunch of stupids Anons…… Do you think just because you don’t forget to say “thx for the chapter” on each post suddenly everything is ok in the world and the translator miraculously gets a sudden vacation in his work / school  free chicks a lot of booze and win the lottery?.

    Sure you probably never hope to have something called Social life you little fuckers and that’s why you’re so sad that you didn’t get your breasts and asses.

    Code Zero is an awesome translator that gave us over 10 fucking volumes and almost each one just a few days apart and a little shit down here dares to call him “Gay zero” and when Zero retired  zxzxzx kindly enough he offers not one but three series. You guys are ungrateful assholes who don’t even deserve the chance to enjoy the work of other people. You guys are not the only ones who are waiting for a series, I for example been waiting for YEARS that someone continue the translation of Itsuka Tenma no kuro Usagi that Larethian was translating, and here I am…. yeah It’s sad but what? I’m not gonna die If I don’t read it nor I’m harrasing each and every translator I cross. You fuckers want to call me an ass kisser? good, at least is much better than being a pathetic beggar.

      If they really can’t wait, they might as well look for a raw version on the internet and put on google traduction… Or they can just wait for a quality translation. Yeah it’s true that zero isn’t the fastest, but the fact that he is kind enough to spare us the trouble of learning Japanese in order to understand wtf is going on by translating vol.22 should give those people nomright to complain.

        No, in the first place if you are receiving FREE translations WITHOUT moving a single finger to help, let´s say being an editor for the series then you don’t even deserve the chance to put a single complain….

        heck maybe you can point errors in the translation or even suggest ways to improve it but this retards think they DESERVED THEM. WTF???.

        And what if Zero it´s not fast? are they helping him? paying him? is he asking us for money to translate? do they even know if he has the minimum time to translate something?.

        You know the thing that piss me off the most is that some idiots even say “Plz drop the series so another translator pick this up”………

        suuuuuuuuuuureeeee pal why not? because there is a huuuuuuuge line of translators jap-eng out there DYING to translate all of our favorite series and surely one of them will give us all the volumes in a couple of months….I mean, it’s not like there’s a lot of bilingual or even trilingual people out there willing to sacrifice all of their time just to give people translations, right?…..*palmface*

            Well, be that as it may.  We don’t have that right.  If we’d been paying for the translations, it’d have been a different story, but in that case the translators would’ve been doing something really wrong (taking money for translating – the translations themselves are already illegal, so asking for money would be a crime as well).

            And I’ve heard that translators also tend to quit when you pester them too much or be rude to them.  They have a life and the translations aren’t all they have to do with their lives.  They have work, studies, and other things to do.  They take time out of that busy schedule to translate for us, so what do you think will go through their heads when they get that kind of attitude from us leeches for taking the trouble to translate despite the busy schedule and all?  That’s why I’m telling you – shut up.

No I´m not giving any respect to him/her, but I DO respect the work that zxzxzx, Code Zero and a whole lot of translators make, which is the main issue in this whole conversation in the first place, but personally I won’t stay quiet anymore watching this kind of comments because this affects me too, and speaking frakly, if these people don’t respect the work of other people then in my opinion they don’t deserve any respect themselves.

Nobody seems to realize that this is a free, I say again FREE!!!, service these good people like Code Zero and zxzxzx give us. Without them we wouldn’t have been able to experience such an amazing series after all.

          I personally can’t comment on Code Zero’s speed or anything since I started reading DxD as soon as he gave it to zxzxzx, but what I can say is that without him, I wouldn’t have been able to read the last ten volumes before that or so, and for that I thank him. Life happens and so sometimes people can’t keep up with things. These translators are people after all, and their first priority is their own lives, as it should be. Be grateful they exist and for what they do is what I say. Code Zero made the choice to come back and as such has provided some great translations in the last month. The very fact that he decided to come back shows he’s pretty determined. To all the impatient people I say go learn Japanese yourself if you can’t wait.

          To zxzxzx and Code Zero I say thank you very much for all the hard work and awesome translations you guys have given us. You’re awesome!

          Also, didn’t mean to hijack your comment DragonOsman, just ended up writing a rant on the back end of my reply to you haha. My bad.

            No problem, man. And I agree completely.

            One thing, though. I talked to Code-Zero on Skype and he said he isn’t going to translate the whole book. He’ll do some of it and then he’ll give it back to Zxzxzx to translate. He’s only doing this as rehab to get back to translating Sekai Owari no Encore, as that’s his main priority project.

          In reply to your other comment: I figured as much. It was weird to hear that he wanted to start DxD again completely when he really wants to get back to Encore. I figure he will probably do the rest of Life 1, maybe another one after, maybe not, and then just give it back to zxzxzx. Encore has been Code Zero’s main project and interest for a while after all.

          No Game No Life has been licensed so you can read them by purchasing either the physical books, or an ebook. If you’re looking for the fan-translation, I don’t know how far they got up to, but I believe it’s still being translated somewhere. I personally haven’t read them, so you’ll have to Google for it.

      Hopefully, he can do both Shinmai and Hagure Yuusha.  I’m just worried about:

      1. Him being too overburdened with work, and

      2. The fact that the author (who is the same one also doing Shinmai) seems to have a problem with commitment might not finish either series before starting on another one.

          If it’ll be too much for him to be working on four LNs at once (Hagure Yuusha, Shinmai Maou, DxD and SnRK), then hopefully someone else will take up Hagure or SnRK instead so he can do both Shinmai and Hagure.  I do want to read them both, after all.

          Has Hagure been translated at all so far? Or not?

            If you check Baka-Tsuki, Hagure has had a few volumes translated here and there. There are a few incomplete volumes in between and those that are more recent are incomplete as well.

            Yeah, I saw that.  It’s the same as Shinmai’s situation.  I want to read it, but I’ll wait until more of it’s been translated, while also not beings so intermittent.  I just wish both Hagure Yuusha and Shinmai Maou would continue being translated.  Get two translators and split the LNs up between them if one can’t two both for whatever reason.

            Yeah, you’re right about that I guess.  Either way, it’d be good if Hagure Yuusha gets another translator.  Someone told me on Skype that he might do it, but that too is not really confirmed.  Seriously. . . . (I’m not trying to badmouth him or anything, just saying).

          Chisato best cake is not a translator as far as I know. They are the organiser and contributor of the crowdfunded Shinmai project. I contacted them regarding whether or not they were willing to make the paid translations publicly available, and am waiting for a reply to see how their negotiation with the other contributors go.

            I honestly don’t know at the moment. There’s a list of ‘parts’ or ‘chapters’ on their blog, but it doesn’t exactly correspond to the parts or chapters of the novel.

            Hopefully another translator will pick up Hagure Yuusha so that you can continue translating Shinmai, since IMO that’s the best thing that can happen now.  If Nomi Nomi continues translating and decides to make her translations publicly available for free, that’s good too, but I don’t think we should hold our collective breath on that one.

            It seems from the blog that bakers are really mostly interested in the ecchi scenes and haven’t funded the “story” chapters. So even if they make the translation free (let’s hope so) there’ll probably be the need of another translator to fill the gaps.

            Learn to have more patience, people, you’re lucking he’s translating it at all.

      Volume 22 came out just a month and a half ago, so don’t expect any news on 23 too soon. Slash Dog was said to be resumed, but there has been no solid news since, DX3 is said to contain the coveted “Wordly Desires of Steel”, but no release date has been set and I doubt there will ever be a EX2 because it was a one-off special series solely for the BorN anime.

        I’m glad to hear about “Wordly Desire of Steel,” however.  I really hope someone will translate that when it comes out.  There’s still one chapter plus Afterword in DX2 that needs to be translated, though.  Who’s going to do that one?

    I don’t know if it is right to say this but I have to know why in the world would you hand back the translation of highschool dxd to code-zero especially after what happened that led to you translating the series in the first place. I mean do you remember how we the fans had to wait for months just for him to translate maybe 5-15% of a chapter. And after everytime that he would break a promise that he made to us fans that he would start to translate seriously he would tell us some lame excuse like he was simply too lazy to do it or that he started getting into this online gundam game that he spent thousands of dollars on. We had to wait for over 2 1/2 years before he finally decided to hand over the translation to someone else and that was only after he managed to translate only 1/3 of volume 18 in that entire span of time. Furthermore if you were to look on his website, it might become apparent that he is falling back into his old lazy habits since it has been nearly two weeks since he made any updates and all he did at that time was to adjust how he presented the rate of translation of the novel in the updates bar in order to somewhat disguise the fact that he hasn’t made any real progress in translation. I have to ask whether it is possible to find any other translators to work on highschool dxd since I and many other fans don’t want to wait several years for Code Zero to either finish  translating the Volume 22 or to convince him again to hand over the translation to someone else.

      You have no rights to demand a faster translation from Code-Zero.

      I am eternally grateful to Code Zero for his work. Believe me, it is not easy to translate a light novel, especially when you may be busy with school, work, or other RL circumstances. Sometimes I stare at the page count and wonder how I even came so far. He has translated more than ten volumes of High School DxD for us, all at the cost of his own time. If he wants to translate, he should do so at a pace that suits him, and not be pressured to allocate more time to translation in order to meet the wants of the community. Everyone wants to have translations done as fast as they can be done, but this simply isn’t realistic. While there may be a few translators out there who translate at lightning speed, it’s not something that can be sustained with everyone else. While some people may be native-speakers, many translators expend a lot of time and effort into learning a language so that they can translate, and I don’t think anyone has the right to demand a faster or better translation.

      Patience is always rewarded. Code Zero has just recently decided to return to translating, and is still getting into the rhythm of it again. If you are truly so desperate to read volume 22, you should either learn to read Japanese or hire a translator to do the book for you.

        Exactly. Very well said, Zxzxzx.

        We all have to remember that while Code-Zero does also play games and stuff, he actually is also busy with other more serious RL stuff like university and work.  He’s also been translating Owari no Encore, and he’d taken a break from translations for a while due to work or other reasons until a bit ago.  Because of that break, he wants to get back into the “swing” of translating again and decided to translate Volume 22 of DxD for that.  Appreciate his work and just be patient.  Like it’s been mentioned, his least number of time between updates is a week or two.  It hadn’t been that long yet when you first made that comment.

        I personally have not read any further than what Code Zero has translated. Precisely because fan-translations such as these are free and offered out of someone’s goodwill, they won’t be a focus or major priority of someone’s life. Other things will come first. I simply appreciate the fact that there are people dedicating their time to allow others to enjoy such works.

          It’s true, that we should be more then just grateful for all the TL work that has been done by Code-Zero, but  the part about making a promise and then leaving all fans hanging is also not a nice thing. He deserves praise for all he did, but it’s really irritating and more then a bit mean if he takes back the Translation and only postpones working on it for months, if that should really happen. So, because Code-Zero blocked comments on his side to avoid such critics, I’ll have to say it here and now:

          Thanks for all your work, but don’t take a Translation back if your to lazy to work on it.

            Isn’t it rude to say he’s being lazy when we don’t know what he’s doing when he isn’t translating?  There’s uni stuff, work, and etc.. He could admittedly be playing games like before, but we don’t know that for sure.  Even if he is, though, between work and uni, can you blame him?

            Also, as Zxzxzx said, he does have a life outside of translating and to him, that’s more important than what people reading his translations for free have to say.

            Also, unless it’s already been more than 2 or 3 weeks since the last update, don’t whine.  He mostly takes that long between updates so it’s normal.  Patience is a virtue.

            Sorry got my point about this phrased wrong. When all TLs are free, then the reasons of “I’m too lazy.” or “Have too much to do” are in my humble opinion valid. I mean, it’s being done for free and the Translator is not our slave. I just don’t like the continued promises of “I’ll go at it for real” and then nothing for months except more and more apologies for the delay, as valid as they might be. Just being fed up of continuously translating is the right of someone who does it for free, but they shouldn’t hog a project, if they can’t get in the mood, if there are other translators who would take it up.

            Code Zero generously decided to start translating again, I personally don’t mind how long it takes, so I’m happy to wait for him. Sure, the faster the better, but I know that some things are realistic, and that some aren’t. I understand, he may have said that he’d work on the translation, but it didn’t happen for a while…but still, just give the guy a break. He’s done a lot for the community, and he has more than earned the right to do as he likes imo.

    Hi! First of all, sorry for my bad english (I’m Italian and I have faaar more practice reading than writing in other languages). As an Highschool dxD and Shinmai fan, I have to say that I’m grateful for yours and the other translators’ work, especially since here official releases of LN are very rare.

    Now, regarding Shinmai,I read on J2270A’s blog that he plans to drop the serie because vlumes 8 and 9 are being translated by Nomi. Fact is, Nomi’s translation is backed by a crowdfunding group and it seems it won’t be publicy available. What are your thoughs on the matter? I completely understand that with so many LN worthy of being translated it seems a waste to duplicate work already done. Still, it’s kinda disappointing to think that this serie (and perhaps others in the future) will may be hidden behind a paywall.

    • DragonOsman says:

      Zxzxzx is already planning on translating Shinmai Volume 7 Chapter 2 and onward (the “onward” part might be my own hope to an extent, but he’s still going to be finishing Volume 7 at least).  The Volume 7 Prologue and Chapter 1 (as well as all of the stuff in Shinmai before that) are already there on B-T, so you could read them there if you want.

      Well, I’m somewhat conflicted about it. Half of me wants to translate it anyway so that everyone can read it, without being forced to pay for it whilst the other half of me doesn’t want to translate because it has already been done by someone, and will end up as a duplicate. I won’t say anything definite at this point, but I’ll consider it in the future when I get up to that point.

        Please translate them.  No one wants to pay for translations that would normally be free fan-translations.

        If you don’t translate them, we can’t read them because only people authorized to enter the site that has them right now can read them, and for a fee at that.  We’ll have to wait for Shinmai to get Licensed so we can read the rest of it, and there’s no telling if it’ll ever be Licensed or, if it does get Licensed, whether it’ll be available in digital format or not (I want digital).

      He probably updates every week or two or something like that.  And notice the progress information on the side bar.  Life.1 is 33% complete.  He’s still working on Life.1 right now, so just be patient.

          You are not the only one who loves DXD, and you’re not the only one who gets frustrated. But because you are an otaku, that means you should have plenty of things to occupy your time with. I used to be like you, checking code-zero’s site multiple times a day before zxzxzx showed up. But one thing you have to realize is that Code-Zero and many other translators like him do it for free and have life to deal with. Everyone has different translation speeds, too. Even when Code-Zero was actively translating DXD he wasn’t putting out daily releases. You just have to do what the rest of us do and be patient. It’s fine to ask for an update if he hasn’t given one in a while (and by “a while” I mean A WHILE), but bugging zxzxzx about code-zero is not gonna help. It may end up annoying him or pissing off code-zero if done too much. Like you said, you’re an otaku. So just stop thinking about DxD for a while and do something else. Plenty of mangas and web novels and light novels and animes out there to read and watch that are just as enjoyable if not exact clones of DxD. Or hell, pick up a new game. Replay an old one. Movies are good, too. Watch all 7 episodes of Star Wars in a row or binge watch some tv shows. Comic books are coming out in spades with DC Rebirth and Marvel’s civil war 2 going on. Point is, there’s a lot  you can do. So find something to take your mind off DxD and be patient. Check back in a while. Follow/subscribe to Code-Zero’s and zxzxzx blog so that they can let you know when there is an update.

            Both sides deserve a break. CZ does the TL for free, so can have his time with it. We impatient leeches are simply scared of having a repeat of the last time, when he simply stopped working on it and only occasionally posted a promise he’ll go at it again. It’s not fair, considering all the work CZ did, but that’s the bitterness of reality, the bad deeds stay in peoples memories far longer.

            It doesn’t matter why you come here, it’s why you’re still here bugging everyone for an update. Who cares that you can’t read Japanese. There are plenty of translation projects for you to follow. Browse Baka-Tsuki. Or go to a manga website where everything is translated. If you’re an otaku like you say you are, you should know this.

      It’s hard to name a favourite chapter, especially when going off the top of my head. If I had to name a volume, it would probably be volume 10. If I had to name a chapter though, it’d be that small interlude in volume 20 where we found out that Issei’s parents had difficulty in having a child.

      As far as I know, detailed summaries do not exist for each volume. The closest thing I know of is the wiki page on Issei which has sections on each of the different arcs, but that would not have anything about other characters or events.

    appreciate very much that you are translating this novel :).

    btw do you know anything about the High School DxD Ex?

    i know chapter 1-3(translated by JerutZ) is completed and uploaded in B-T

    but is chapter 4-6(translated by Ariel Saeba) completely translated? because i can see that someone uploaded those chapter in B-T and in Ariel Saeba site the latest update were 19/7 so im not sure if its completed or not. have asked around and some says that it is completely translated and other say no, so im wondering if you knew something because you are translating the DxD novel and may have contact with them or something.

    It’s difficult to find illustrations for vol.22 since they have disabled freebie reading for it, so the only ones that getto see them are those who’ve gotten their hands on the goods.

     

    Also, at least for me the theme enables and disables at random.

      Can’t give a time frame on it as it’s way too early. I’ve only read the first chapter that Code Zero translated and don’t have a copy of the book yet myself.

      If you check the project on Baka-tsuki you’ll be able to see how long it was between volume translations historically.

      Life.0 of Life 22 has been translated by Code-Zero on his blog.  He’ll probably work on it for a month, after which Zxzxzx will take it up again.  Please read.

        because there hasn’t been any word of confirmation that there will be a release date for season 4 and all I am finding are people saying that they will announce season 4 in late 2016 or early 2017 if the producers follow the same timeline as the others.

          Well, people say things all the time. I don’t really pay much attention to it. I hope to see a fourth season of DxD, and if I hear of its official announcement, I’ll be jumping for joy. I honestly don’t know when it will be announced, and nor can I guess. It could be several years before Studio TNK comes back around for it if they do other projects so I’m not too fussed at the moment.

          He mentioned in an Afterword, though I don’t remember which Volume’s it was.  Should be 20 or 21, though.  Or maybe 22 since there are already people who’ve read the whole book already.  But yeah, most likely in one of those three books.

          What he said was that the series might have 30 or less Volumes in total and that it definitely won’t go for more than 30 Volumes.  And we also know that Volume 22 is both the end of the current arc (the one Rizevim, Apophis and Azi Dahaka were villains in and Trihexa also appeared) and also the start of the next and final arc.  So now we’re at the end of the 4th Arc and the beginning of the 5th (and final) Arc.

            Oh, don’t worry, there will be a sequel.  If we aren’t mistaking the signs, that is.  If you’ve read EX, you should know what I mean (the future it spoke of is 30 years later from the current point of time in the story, and it was said that the information Rizevim sent the people of the world would be deciphered in 30 years, and they’ll also come to their world in 30 years’ time as well).

          TripleZerox just managed to finish on the 16th.  It also said it on the status bar that he’d be updating it on the 16th, which you would’ve known if you’d kept checking back periodically.  Though if it was too much trouble for whatever reason, I won’t blame for it.

          As for EX, you should read it after Volume 7 IIRC.

    Well, first of all I want to thank you for translating shinmai. The other would ask if traduciras all vol 7. Another thing, you translate from Chinese to English not? As far covers Chinese translation? To volume 9? Or until 8 full volume?

     

    Well, I think that would be all, sorry if this comment is rare, as I said comes from Google translator.

     

    A greeting!

      The Chinese translation is up to volume 9 if I remember correctly. Unfortunately, I’m quite pressed for time with everything at the moment and was going to translate a few chapter of volume 7, but now I probably won’t. It’ll have to be until I have a lighter workload before I start translating Shinmai Maou again.

    Hi, thanks for your hard work. Will you make PDF versions to Shinmai ? None of volumes completed has a pdf.

      There are PDFs of the first two volumes floating around. As for the rest, I don’t really feel like making the PDFs as I’d rather spend that time translating. Anyone is free to make one though, since it’s on Baka-Tsuki.

    Is the Chinese release of SMnK still only on vol.7 Or 8. With vol.10 coming out soon is there any word of when the next vol. in Chinese will come out? Do you know the usual length of time it takes for the Chinese volumes to be relaesed

    • zxzxzx says:

      0

      0

      It’s only up to volume 8. I don’t actually know how long it is between releases but I don’t think it should be an issue given that there are currently 3 incomplete volumes to do.

      • Eddielog says:

        Actually there’s 4 incomplete volumes on baka tsuki. Five if you count the fact that vol.4 isn’t complete, but I won’t since the translator said it will be up soon. I’m guessing you said three because none of the translators, at least not to my knowledge, use the Japanese version, that’s at vol.9

        • zxzxzx says:

          0

          0

          Volumes 6, 7 and 8 are incomplete. I didn’t bother counting v4 as it is very close to completion. While the Chinese version is only up to v8, Arsl31 translates from Japanese so he could go further. So, it is probably 4 volumes.

        Yeah It covers, V4, 5 and 7. The OVA for fIrst season was from V4 (and some from v6 – the banana and MarIa part). Ep 1-3-mId were also from V4.

        And It seems acc. to the IllustratIons, MId ep 3-about 6 or 7 was from V5. The rest from v7.

        Not sure about the 2nd season OVA. It could be an ORIGINAL plot, or from manga but I don’t THINK Its from the LN.

With the other two guys coming back in March and you being able to focus more more it until the next add volume comes out maybe we’ll get more completed volumes.

          Hey guys, found a website where some people were kind enough to post date a live vol 1-12 with the chase and Kurumi star festival short stories, and most of the campione volumes. This way you can at least re read most of the old content that we lost on Baka-Tsuki. Though I’m kinda afraid to type the website name cause I don’t want the DMCA to somehow follow it there, I’m kinda paranoid about it cause if they go, that’s it. It seems like a public website though, people post everything there. You might find some previously deleted stories from Baka-Tsuki there. Let me know if this is a safe place >_>

            You can also still find the most recent completely translated volumes of Date a Live and anything else that was taken down by looking at the google drives that host many of the pdfs. A lot of those guys still have those works available on there. I found Campione up to its most recent complete translated volume there almost a month after BT took it off their site. The real issue is with future translations as they will be harder to find without BT hosting them. It all depends on what those translators do.

    May I ask if you use an online translator or if you are fluent in japanese when you translate the text? Also would you say that SMnK is one of the longer light novels you’ve come across?

    • zxzxzx says:

      0

      0

      I translate from Chinese to English. I wouldn’t call myself fluent in Chinese, but I know the terms that would be used on a day to day basis and in conversation. I don’t know much Japanese (yet), but I always check my translations against the Japanese by trying to compare it with Google translate.

      SMnK isn’t particularly long. The whole novel itself is similar in length to others, but each volume only has 3-4 chapters aside from the prologue and epilogue which means that it’s chapters are longer.
      Also, in terms of style, it’s very focused on ‘explaining’ the narration, as opposed to actually narrating.

      Chapter 3 is ~80 pages long. I didn’t want to start it and have to stop it for a month with no progress so someone who can work on it continuously would be better. Of course, if it’s still incomplete when I return and no one has registered for it, I’d do it.

      No, it was last updated fairly recently (a few days ago) by Arls31 though so I suspect it isn’t far from completion. Also, his B-T profile page says that he is currently on break so I’m sure a little more patience will pay off.

    TripleZerox, is Volume 3?  I’ve just gotten to it, and I noticed that it’s not fully translated.  The 3rd Chapter is incomplete and the Epilogue also hasn’t been done yet.  If a Chinese source for Volume 3 is out, could you please translate it?  And if not, please ask a Japanese-to-English translator do it.  Please and thank you.

      Chapter 3 of V3 should be done soon. It’s at 85% completion and the last update was just yesterday. I started on V4 as there were other translators registered for V3. I plan to finish off V4 chapter 2 at the least before going back to V3 if necessary. I’ll be busy until later this month anyway, so hopefully someone will be able to do it before me.

    I want to ask a question concerning highschool dxd…..What is the actual power of the gremory household???…cause the power of rias,sirzechs and millicas (the power of destruction) is actually from their mother which is from the house of bail…so what is the actual power of the gremory household..

    • DragonOsman2 says:

      They have a trait rather than a power, it seems.  You do know that they tend to have a lot of affection, right?  Especially for their servants.  That’s the main, tell-tale trait of the House of Gremory.  Notice how much affection Rias gives to her own servants, for example.  Plus, she fell in love with Ise (although that’s more because of how he himself is).

      • Dragon says:

        Their trait is high demonic power then other houses. Sirzech is only one that have traits of Gremory and Bael (huge demonic power and PoD) read OP as fuck.

        • DragonOsman2 says:

          Where was this mentioned?  If it’s really true, it’d be pretty good IMO.  But I’ve also read in the novel that the members of House Gremory are known for the affection they show to their servants, too.  If what you said is correct, then that means they have both of these traits.

          And yeah, Sirzechs really is OP.  His position as a Super Devil is well-deserved.

          Their trait is assumed to be high demonic power control. Affection is just a secondary trait.

    Wait, I thought you said we had to wait 2 or 3 months for v20

    Does it mean the Chinese trans group is starting already?

    • zxzxzx says:

      0

      0

      Well, things at this point are uncertain. The Chinese translators actually couldn’t form a group so they decided not to translate, instead waiting for the Taiwanese translation. I would be waiting for that as well but it so happened that one particular translator started v20 and has been posting that up so I’m using that as my source for now.

      It amazes me that people complain at the speed of the translations when these people are doing it for free. You want it faster? Pay them to do nothing but translate then or do it yourself.  People like that should be banned from the translation sites

    • Anonymous says:

      There’s a difference. Code-Zero grew to be a bit apathetic towards translating after some personal issues. Zxzxzx is just having to deal with a loss of free time due to being a college student.

      As said by Donkdat, don’t forget that fan translators are VOLUNTEERING THEIR FREE TIME to translate FOR US. They can generally read the raws for themselves. So please try to keep your complaints about the speed to yourselves.

      If you’re getting frustrated with waiting, and the fact that this is all a free service isn’t enough to persuade you to have patience, try re-reading some of the older material. I went back through some of the older volumes at a more leisurely pace and I was amazed by lots of little details I had missed/forgotten when I was speeding through it all the first time!

      Yes, I’m alive. J2270A is also currently translating, I believe he said he would begin working on V5. I’m not sure about the other translators but I know I’ve been going fairly slow with Shinmai and that’s mainly because its harder to understand than DxD for me. I plan to continue, and hopefully speed up later on.

        Well, the other translator Arsl31 who is working on V3 said that he has his College Thesis coming up and will be slowing down. (a lot)

        My current break ends mid-october, so I might be disappearing for multiple weeks sporadically in the future, but will always be back. I’m busy checking through my previous chapters due to the many mis-translations I’ve found, but will also start with V5 and continue with the side story.

If u can do u think u could look into it and see if it peeks a intrest to u, that would be great. Thank you

    So Cristaldi said something like that to Dulio just to provoke him?  Man, the nerve of this guy. . . .

    Anyway, I’m happy to have gotten the update and read it.

    By the way a few things; here:

    “Yeah, because I heard about Kiba-kun’s past. I’m a little concerned about whether Kiba will have be bloodthirsty today. Even if you hold a grudge, this is an internal conflict between your own comrades. Only the kids who can endure right now are the best.”

    The second time Dulio says Kiba’s name here, the -kun honorific is missing, and also, I think there should be a “to” after “have” so that it reads: “I’m a little concerned about whether Kiba-kun will have to be bloodthirsty today”.

    Then here:

    “Thanks to the success of the Grigori’s analysis and technical work, for the children with Sacred Gears, the dispelling procedure has already been able to the phase of a trial run. Although in theory, they’ve already reached perfection, still, that child chose to undergo the dispelling procedure.”

    In this part: ” . . . the dispelling procedure has already been able to the phase of a trial run”.  This doesn’t make much sense to me.  Well, I mean, yeah, I can get the gist of the meaning, but the wording itself is a bit weird, no?  Would it work better as something like ” . . . the dispelling procedure has already been able to reach the phase of a trial run”?

    Here:

    …Although he was originally more hostile, Azazel-sensei requested the alliance in good faith, although some people would be sceptical, there was a little bit of trust.

    There should be probably be a “so” before the second “although”.  Or maybe you could just put a semicolon after “faith” (but I’m not sure if it’ll work here).

    “I, think that simply being able to protect the dreams of those children is already enough.”

    In there, I don’t there should be comma after “I”.

    I think there should be a comma here before “right”:

    “…This place that you often visited will soon hold a ceremony to dispel a Sacred Gear right?”

    Let me just apologize in advance if this seems too presumptuous of me or something.  I just can’t help but point out mistakes like these if I can be sure enough that they’re mistakes.

      Thanks a lot DragonOsman, I noticed a few of them as I was reading over it again. Thanks for pointing out the others, I’ve fixed them up. I only skimmed through this one before putting it up so that’s probably why I had so many little mistakes here and there.

      I don’t have the scans currently and I don’t think I could translate it decently only from Japanese. I might ask Code Zero though if he’s not too busy.

        Sweet! I hope it gets translated, though being a 6 part short story series might be tough?

        Hopefully Code Zero can do it ><

        Honestly from all that I’ve heard HS DXD EX basically Retcons S3 to be Cannon with all the divergence from the LN being part of some grand scheme caused by an Enemy revealed in the SS. Then Time Travel mechanics come into play etc… It sounds interesting enough to get me hyped for it >< Oh and Ichiei Ishibumi apparently planned this all out o.O?? Is the consensus that’s being spewed out.

        Anywho, Thanks for all the translation work, and taking time to answer my question.

          Are you really sure about what you said regarding HS DXD EX? When I first read your comment, I was quite surprised. Though S3 was nice on its own, in my opinion, the LN’s are WAAAAAYY better and many seem to agree with this statement. I googled HS DXD EX and what they said its about Issei’s kids from the future going back in time to do what seems to be another save Asia arc. It was never mentioned that HS DXD EX retcons S3 to be official cannon. Someone also posted what’s like an “excerpt from revelation” of HS DXD EX and it mostly supports what I mentioned above. I’m asking you this cause you might have better sources than I do and I may be mistaken. But from what I’ve googled, most sites I’ve found tend to say the same.

          • DragonOsman2 says:

            I got my information from AnimeSuki Forums and the people who mentioned it there got it from Ishibumi’s own Twitter (and maybe also some of the Volume Forwards, IIRC).  So it actually is accurate information.  EX is part of a ploy planned by Ishibumi to correct the timeline that was changed in the anime by Loki.  In EX, Loki is killed by Ise’s and Rias’ son before he can do anything.  But that’s only around the beginning, and the main plot of EX is larger than that.  Read the summary about EX on AnimeSuki Forums.

            And Asia hasn’t really been kidnapped as she’s still at home.  She’s just severely injured because in the future there was a war against enemies that were immune to senjutsu and magic. Ise defeated them and ended the war, but at a price.  Some of those things also came back with Loki and the kids to the past.

            So yeah, the information you found is a bit inaccurate.  On AnimeSuki Forums, there are also people who can read Japanese, and one of them (Jopjopjop, who is also on this site) posted a summary of the first part of the EX Volume that has been released.

          And Code-Zero and Triple-Zerox will be translating Volume 20 together.  So he needs to know when Code-Zero will be starting and how he plans to actually do it.
