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

    For those who are waiting for season 4 I read in one of the afterwards that the anime seasons 1 2 and 3 were more focused on rias they were a trial run don’t believe me look for yourself it is in there look thoroughly for it

        It is your just not paying attention I look and saw it myself you are not reading are you come back when you read the afterwards in 13 and 14

          Season 1 was released before volume 12 was released and season 2 was confirmed in the afterwords of volume 14, and season 3? It was way later than that. Who’s not paying attention? And where did it state that season 1, 2 and 3 were focused on Rias? Tell me. Only season 1 was focused on Rias because that was her volume being adapted. You read it back carefully.

            In volume 3 issei doesn’t fight and rias and issei don’t hold hands he wasn’t near her and what was season 3 about  all 3 seasons were focused on her the light novel isn’t if it was focused on her then why is aisa more compatible with him then her I read 13 and 14 volumes afterwards I looked more than once

            Oh my god, now you’re saying stuffs outside of afterwords. I thought that we’re only focusing on afterwords though. Ln volume 3, the change was so minor and you want to count that?! That small thing?! There are a lot of more important things that they change but you focus on that?! Come on man, you gotta know when to give up. And season 3 was a fucked up by TNK. It was not the author’s fault. He got nothing to do with Issei and Rias in season 3. There’s nothing else for you to say. Just give up. You can count season 3 as does not exist since it was a clusterfuck.

      You know that I can just end the conversation here. Even if you reply after this, stating your argument or whatsoever, I can just ignore it. Like seriously, why are we even having this conversation. Just because you don’t wanna give up making my life hell. Bla bla bla. Dude, this is the fucking internet. You don’t even know who I am. Even if I die tomorrow, you won’t even know. You wanna make my life hell, go on. See if I care. There are a lot more hellish problem in the real world and you wanna fight just because of this?! You think that you’re the only one who’s stubborn. Wow. That’s so great. As if there’s only a single fucking guy in the world who’s stubborn. Your parents must be proud. Wow. Guys give this guy a noble prize he deserves it. I don’t fucking care. If you don’t want to accept the truth and still want to argue, fine, go on but the truth is still out there and people know what’s right and what’s wrong.

    Just something I  realized  issei and le fay being together is going to be tough not because of her or her bother is because they’re family they have two of his weakness knight and bishop

      la fay doesn;t become need to become a devil but she does for sure become his..

      she is his contracted magic user… at the moment it’s a tempory 5 year pact but it can be renewed

      arther has also told issei to take care of la fay as well

      it’s possible that after the 5 year pact a lifetime pact can be made with her body being the price.

      a child between la fay and issei does appear in HS DxD EX  the only one who didn;t have a child appear is kuino (fox princess) however it may be because any child was too young also there is nothing to say he didn’t have more than 1 child with any of them either.

      also there is no reason la fay can’t be made a pawn (1-8 pieses) or even a queen as issei still has use of those pieces he also has 1 rook and 1 knight

    Just a question to see who could get it right with all of the girls who are with issei now how many of the girls are devil, angel, fallen angel or other answer comes after who is right

    • Leigh Russelle says:

      0

      7 devils   2 x pure blood

      2x human rebirth

      1x valkury rebirth

      1x nekomata rebirth

      1x fallen angel hybred

      1 angel   1x human reincarnation

      1 vampire 1x pure blood

       

      that’s them all too date

       

      I am not counting karoka or la fay as yet as there story to date has been unclear (though the future is known)

      karoka has been more playful messing with ise and koneko but has made no direct moves IMO

      as for la fay there is no development

       

      I have counted how thay live now as opposed to what thay were arkino for example is a devil (lives as rias Queen) not as a fallen angel.

      • J9162 says:

        I think Kuroka and Le Fay would technically be counted based on the question. Also, you forgot about Kunou. She’s a Youkai.

        • Anonymous says:

          0

          0

          The answer is 12 koneko and her sister are youkai so that is 8 devils 2 who were human 1 valkury 1 half fallen angel 2 pure blood devils and for angel 1 former human and 1 pure blood vampire and 1 human and 1 pure youkai since the sisters are devil and youkai

            Koneko and kuroka Were both youkai, but they’ve been reborn as devils, just as rossweisse Was a Valkyrie, and has been reborn as a devil.

            That’s my understanding, anyway

            Still holding out that Le Fay also has a 10,000+ year lifespan like every other harem member due to her being a magician or something along those lines. Her pendragon bloodline maybe could also have an impact. I think it would suck if she was just human and wouldn’t live as long. Guess at that point she joins the peerage for the longevity perks haha. She hasn’t gotten much development yet so I hope we see more of her in the future.

            It’s confirmed that volume 25 will be Rossweisse. I expect volume 26 will be Le Fay.

            That’d be nice. Although I think Ravel may also get a volume too so that could be then also. Unless they all sort of count as hers given how important she’s become haha

        I deliberately didn;t count Kunou as there is too little development

        also no chile between them appeared in EX , that doesn;t mean thay don’t have one. concidering her age there is time for something to happen to take her away from issei however unlikely that may be

         

        that’s the reason I didn;t include her.

         

        also the question I took to mean presently. and those without development there is too mauh left for things to happen

    just some trivia to kill the time for the chinise TL to upload more stuff

     

    in V22 Ise became engaged twice in the one volume.

    now the question, to whom was Ise engaged to first?

     

    i’ll post the answer soon let see who gets it right :p

    • Overlord Michael says:

      Rias of course

      • Leigh Russelle says:

        0

        it was a trick question but the answer might supprise you.

         

        Koneko was actually the first to propose to ise in which ise acknowledged her feelings and axcetped when her height and bust gets bigger.

        you might think asia with her “let stay together forever” however ise at first thought of her more as someone to protect.

        so from volume 1 or present ise is now engaged to 3 people 🙂

          Issei has been Engaged to Rias since volume 2 though, not that he ever realized that fact.

            0

            yes but if the feelings are not known then it’s not real. same as asia.
            ise thinks rias treats him like a PET in the beginning.

            again ise was not aware of the goings on all this time

             

            the young master thing for example

             

            ise could never have axcepted there feeling for real until he deal with his past (first girlfriend blues)

             

            once that was done he declarsed his love to rias and thay started dateing buit not engaged as far as he was aware.

            koneko was the first.

        • Read DxD says:

          0

          0

          And your point is? Your question was who he got engaged to first and Rias happened first no ifs ands or buts about it. Whether or not he ever realized what his actions meant doesnt matter.

          Koneko is best girl anyway.

      If he could he would, hes a chinese TL.

      The better question is if we can contact Code Zero and ask him to translate backwards from the afterword and see if there are any major errors in the chinese TL, but he probably stopped for a reason.

      No, if I did, there would to too many errors. I’m only comfortable with Chinese to English at the moment. It’s already taken me years to be able to do this with Chinese, so it’ll probably be several (or many) more years before I feel like I can do the same for Japanese.

          Basically what ‘Read DxD’ said. I have to wait for the Japanese to Chinese translation so that I can translate to English. Previously, I would’ve had trouble keeping up with them, but lately they’ve slowed down. So I keep an eye out for their releases every few days and usually catch up within a week.

            do you know why they slow down? because they slowed dow n to almost a great extent, you know? in november vol.24 is about to release, meanwhile the vol.23 chinese TL is still in life 2.

          • zxzxzx says:

            0

            Nope, no reason given, and no reason for them to. After all, they’re just a fan-translator like me. Not being up to date with the latest Japanese volume doesn’t bother me, and it probably doesn’t bother them either.

    • zxzxzx says:

      Well, I can’t say I have a particular girl that I would rank as first to be honest. I’ve had phases where I like one more than the other, but if I really had to choose just one at the moment, I’d say Kuroka. Can’t say no to a cat girl who adds -nya to the end of almost every line, plus I love the way she teases.

        Koneko, Between Volume 11’s being the first to propose to Issei, generally being adorable and supporting Issei, and Volume 16’s body changing powers, she eventually pushed Akeno out of first despite her being there the entire series till that point.

        We all know that Sairaorg is the True Best Girl though.

      Actually, the DX series is usually translated by Daniel Yang. He is in the middle of DX3 at the moment, His site is:

      http://danielyang.ninja/

       

      He translates from Korean to English so usually you have to wait a while until he gets the Korean source material.

      zxzxzx is currently in Japan on a well deserved vacation.

       

      When he comes back and resumes translating, his priority scale is usually DxD till caught up with chinese source content, followed by alternating between chapters of Shinmai and Seikoku.

       

      Since Seikoku was the most recent chapter (released on June 15 vs May 5 for Shinmai), I would think that after he catches up with DxD it will be a Shinmai chapter.

       

      He has also said that he has no plans to drop any of his projects, so all you have to do is be patient and he will get to Seikoku eventually.

    Do anyone know a Novel that I can read?

    It should have at least 10 vl’s and should be similar to High School DxD or Shinmai Maou no Keiyakusha

          No, you don’t need to see the anime first.

          Although I will say that you will enjoy the anime more if you watch it BEFORE you read the LNs as there are significant differences between them.

          Another series you may enjoy: Magika No Kenshi To Shoukan Maou. The 14th book is due out on Aug. 25th I believe.

      Well, on June 3 he said his exams start in about 2 weeks, which would be around June 17.

      Then he leaves for a three week trip to Japan 2 days after his exams are over.

      I am guessing that exams will be scheduled across a whole week for a full time student, so that would take us to roughly June 24,

      So My best guess is that he is either on his way or about to be on his way to Japan.

      Either way, don’t expect any updates for the next month.

      High School DxD remains my top priority, and I’d say Shinmai and Seikoku are an equal second. I might pool more time into Seikoku once volume seven of Shinmai is done.

    Since you type so much, I want your suggestion as I am buying a keyboard. Do you think mechanical ones are good for typing? I prefer the Chiclet types, silent enough to not disturb your room mate and nice feel.

    What do you use? Should I just buy a cheap one?

    Sorry for posting here!

    • zxzxzx says:

      No prob, I don’t mind. I use chiclet keyboards at uni, and membranes at home and work. I’ve had a mechanical, but sold it. Mechanicals are good for typists, as it generally reduces strain on the fingers due to less effort required, and people can usually type faster on them as well. However, most of the popular switches e.g. Cherry ### tend to be rather loud and ‘clicky’, which doesn’t seem to suit your needs. There are quiet/silent mechanical keyboards around, though they are a little harder to find. I like chiclet keyboards mainly because they usually don’t require a deep depression on keys, and allow for fairly quick typing. Membranes are a personally preference on mine when it comes to desktops/workstations, simply because I prefer the feel of them – the trade-off in speed is worthwhile. I also like to have RGB lighting on keyboards as it allows me to adjust the colour and brightness to suit room lighting and eye condition. I think if I were you, I’d look into a silent mechanical keyboard (though could be pricey), otherwise go for a chiclet.

        I guess I’ll buy a chiclet one and buy a mechanical one after I’ve had some hands-on experience on all of them.

      If you had read his latest blog post, he says he is not going to translate anything until after his 3 week long trip to Japan near the end of June.

       

      At that point his focus will most likely be on DxD rather than Shinmai,

      So looks like it is going to be several months till you see any more Shinmai.

          If you are that impatient, either pay a japanese to english translator to translate it for you or go annoy the japanese to chinese translator to be faster like you do zxzxzx, instead of bothering zxzxzx when he doesn’t have a source to translate yet.

      You can expect it within one year? That’s how long it almost took vol 22 to be completed. Volume 22 was released July 20 of 2016. So i believe like 10 months it took Zxzxz to finish translation of 22 while waiting for chinese material. It was a hard and long road to Zx to wait and translate. So you should come back within 10 months to a year or in between every month  🙂 Not trying to be rude here, it’s at least less painful than to comeback here and check everyday. Well buddy have a good day and to everyone here and thanks Zxzxzx for the work you’ve done for the readers and fans of the series.

        You’re forgetting that Code Zero actually translated the first half of volume 22 and that when 22 came out, volume 21 wasn’t finished by the Chinese source yet. Lots of other factors involved as well.

          Ohh Yes !! My bad I forgot about Code Zero, soo mmm its actually less ? i guess, but still it took almost a year adding both of them. Since Zxzxzx couldn’t finish it faster since he was waiting on source material for him to work on.

            0

            Yeah of course. At the end of the day it all just depends on the amount of available translatable source material is available and how much time the translators have and can devote to the work. Just gotta wait really. There’s no rush anyway.

    hi! Just asking but… if there already are the chinese translation it would not be faster to first catch up with shinmai since it have very few total volume?

    because seikoku no ryuu kishi had a total of over 16 volume if i’m not wrong when shinmai is a lot shorter!

    it would not be better? Or are you not doing it beacause there aren’t the chinese translation?

          I think he is referring to the poll you did back in Oct. 2016 with the choices of Shinmai, Hagure, or drop both, where Shinmai won.

           

          Evidently he apparently thinks that means Shinmai should be the primary focus after DxD.

           

          I think most people are just happy to see some progress on their favorites. I know that I would love to see progress on several projects on BT that are currently stalled.

    • yourstruly96 says:

      From what I can tell, zxzxzx will focus on DxD as long as there is chinese content for it, otherwise he swaps between his other projects every chapter. Not sure why, but I can come up with several reasons. Like preventing burnout on a single series, keeping fans of particular series happy that they won’t have to wait forever before they get some content, and variety is the spice of life.

      • Edward says:

        Yeah i know that the novel number one in DxD but at the moment is on hold for missing chinese translation since vol 23 is new but the volume of shinmai, except for vol 10, are pretty old so i think they are already translated! For this reason i was asking

    • zxzxzx says:

      That may be ‘better’ to you or some other people because it’s your preference, but that may not be the case for everyone. I have plenty of source material for both those series. I just like to alternate and work on whatever I want at whatever pace I can. Shinmai chapters are generally quite long and can be arduous to translate simply because the pace is so slow.

      • Edward says:

        0

        0

        oh okay! By the way i was asking because i prefer shinmai since a read both of them, i was simply thinking that maybe if you first finish the shorter (in this case shinmai) now that you don’t have to translate DxD, after you would be more “mentally free” since you don’t need to choose one of them!

        But it was only my thinking because this is how i always do: one thing at a time so to also have less stress! Ahah

        thank you nonetheless for your translations 🙂

        It really hasn’t. We’ve been spoiled by how fast zxzxzx is able to get his translations out. However, that is also based on if the Chinese translations are going well. When they stop, he is forced to. Many translators sometimes take months to release updates when they have the material available, but luckily zxzxzx is not one of them as he’s rather fast when he has the material.

        In terms of the current wait though, it’s really not that long. Many light novels get dropped completely or translations stop and then suddenly start again after a few years go by. The month we’ve waited is nothing compared to that. Just need to be patient. The Chinese translator no doubt has their own life issues to deal with now so we just need to wait until they come back. There’s a plethora of anime, manga, and light novels out there for everyone to experience while they wait.

          Thats kind of irrelevant to whats going on here.

          The issue is that there is a known faction of translators that don’t think afterwords are important and don’t translate it. And they might be right for a few authors, but not Ishibumi, hell the afterword is sometimes one of the best parts of the series like when Kiba was referred to as the heroine inspiring eternal Kiba Best Girl jokes.

          Tbh, I’ve been going crazy because I cant read this till it’s done, I’ve probably checked this site several hundred times in the past month. And saying to read something else doesn’t really work when DxD is the single greatest thing on the planet.

      zxzxzx primarily translates DxD. Then he also works on Shinmai and Seikoku on the side when he can. I’m pretty sure he wouldn’t want to add another series on the list considering how much work translating is and that he has to balance it with his already very busy actual life responsibilities. Besides that series was taken down from Baka Tsuki over a year ago because of DMCA threats and translations ceased. So nobody has officially taken over the project for fear of being threatened by the publisher. That being said, unofficially, well, you’ll just have to search harder on the internet.

    You know it’s bad when Maurice resorts to using other people’s names. How low he’s fallen. So sad. Poor guy must really have nothing else worthwhile in his life if all he values is attempting to bother people over the internet.

    I recommend trying to go outside and experiencing real life Maurice. It’ll certainly help with getting rid of that spoiled brat attitude you have of thinking you should always get what you want when you want it. The real world is a lot different and you’ll be able to grow as a person once you find out that the rest of the world doesn’t live to cater to you and your childish behavior. Maybe you’ll even learn to respect and appreciate other people too.

      You could try banging your head on the desk. That could help the Chinese Translations come faster. But sure, zxzxzx can definitely wait faster. I don’t know why he is waiting sooo slooow. Other translators wait so fast, right?

      I wonder how your mom waited nine months to give birth to you… She must have been really disappointed. Maybe that’s why she didn’t teach you how to wait.

      In Japanese, there are 3 scripts. Hiragana, katakana, and kanji. Hiragana and katakana you could call ‘alphabets’ of all the sounds that are used in the Japanese language. There are about 50 of them. Remembering these will let you pronounce kana, but you’d still need to learn vocabulary. There are also about 2000 commonly used kanji characters, but you shouldn’t worry about those just yet. The first step will be to memorise the kana so that you can read and pronounce the basic sounds and eventually string sentences together. After that, you’ll want to pick up the vocabulary and grammar.

      Tae Kim’s guide is an excellent resource. There are also a few others, but I can’t recall them at the moment.

    CN is an abbreviation for China or Chinese. zxzxzx translates from the Chinese translations of DxD so until that translator continues, he needs to wait. He’s caught up to the Chinese translator.

      @Maurice Bartlett So you think if Highschool DxD gets a different translator they would do a better job than 3zx? Are you so confident that they would regularly update without any delay? This a hobby not a job. You must be one hell of a child sucking your parents money off doing nothing good but staring at the computer 24 hours jerking off to shit. Nevertheless, if you are a student currently studying or even working , then damn you have one hell of a ego. Saying all shit like hacking or stuff like you know shit. If you are still kid then act like a fucking kid. If this keep on going, you’re definitely gonna have trouble with your relationship.

    The first part of Life 5 part 1 that you’ve translated so far sure is interesting zxzxzx. (I don’t think people realize it’s there as its not visible unless you go search for it). Either way, thanks for the translations so far. I know the Chinese source translator is busy so it’ll be a while for the rest. Even though it’s clear that things will really be picking up in Volume 23 hahaha.

    Anyway, as far as the big question for life 5 goes, I don’t think Bina’s identity will be revealed yet, but there’s certainly a lot of speculation as to who she is. Given certain impossible candidates that people bring up, (its not possible for Grayfia to be her as she’d need to be traded by Sirzechs and wouldn’t abandon his peerage anyway and nor would anyone ask her too, it would seem like a betrayal to Sirzechs from both her and Issei honestly), I’m still hoping it’s Tiamat haha.

    My money is on Tiamat already being a devil thanks to Ajuka who would clearly be someone that could turn her and she seems to be a servant of his in some form given that she seems to owe him a debt (Tanin, a former great dragon king, is also a devil Queen piece, so it’s very possible) and her considering to permanently join Issei is another hint going all the way back to her earliest reference as the strongest familiar. Plus, the history she has with Ddraig. It’s honestly about time her character became more important given the foreshadowing.

    Then again, it could be someone entirely new as well which could also work well too. I guess we’ll just have to wait and see.

        0

        Ahh yes that’s another possibility as well. Honestly, I completely forgot about the remaining few longinus users haha. Granted, that would be another new character, but it would also make sense because she’s observing Issei to see if he’s worthy of being her King and thereby worthy of her power. So yeah, I’d say that’s another very likely outcome. One I’d also accept. Still, I’d like Tiamat’s character to become more important regardless haha.

    • anifreik says:

      0

      Since in the spoilers I’ve read it said that Bina is “auditioning” Issei to be her King, that would seem to rule out Grayfia. But in the part of Part 1 that is translated, Issei says that she isn’t in his peerage, and is only a team member for the tournament, so that means it could still be Grayfia. This situation could change with more info gained once more of Life 5 is translated, so don’t rule anybody out just yet.

      • J9162 says:

        0

        0

        Exactly she’s auditioning to be in his peerage, but that still means it’s not Grayfia simply because she cannot be traded (not that she’d join anyway given obvious reasons). As her King, Sirzechs would have to perform the trade with Issei, like Rias and Issei did for Rosseweisse. Since he is going to be fighting Trihexa indefinitely in another dimension for years to come, he certainly won’t be available to trade Grayfia to Issei lol.

        • anifreik says:

          0

          0

          Actually, according to [email protected]’s spoilers, she’s not auditioning for him, he’s auditioning for her. But according to the draft of Life 5 Part 1 that’s already translated, her joining Issei’s peerage isn’t even on the table, she’s just a team member for the tournament. That doesn’t mean things can’t change farther into Life 5, though.

          • J9162 says:

            0

            0

            Yes that’s what I meant (I mentioned that in an earlier comment). She basically wants to see if Issei is worthy of her power essentially and I have no doubt that she will join his peerage eventually. I’m aware she’s not his Queen piece yet, only the Queen position in the tournament (like Irina is a knight,  but she’s not a devil). I was just saying that because she’s considering joining Issei’s peerage, she cannot be Grayfia so you can rule Grayfia out as the identity of Bina.

      http://tieba.baidu.com/p/4788674025?pn=30

      With a bad translate I understand that:

      -The team talk about his Queen. Ravel thinks that Bina is a good member for the team and about a secret under his mask.

      -Another teams are mentioned in the rating game(nothing important of these teams)

      -The Rias team has a high rating

      -The new members of Rias team are mentioned for Issei team.. Valerie healing power. The Rias Knight(Lint Sellzen) use the same battle costume of Irina and Xenovia(Irina is mentioned here, nothing wrong) and one sword and Gun(like freed) as weapons.. Mr. Black is mentioned..

      -Ophis and Lilith appear(the last thing for now)

      We should wait a little longer, maybe he translates the volume in that place.

    zxzxzx I’ve been meaning to ask this for a long time. You said that you translate DxD from a Chinese translation to japanese right? Is it a website? And if it is, may I know what’s the website? I’ve always wanted to take a visit at the website that your translating from.

    I hate to complain but the impression that I got from zxzxzx was that they were going to finish dxd vol 22 before changing novels   So what happened

      Thought I already made it clear why I’m translating something else at the moment, did I not?

      Somebody, somewhere translates the Japanese to Chinese, zxzxzx then translates the Chinese to English. The Chinese translator is stalled on Life 5, so zxzxzx has no source material to translate from. Therefore he is working on something else while he has the time to do so waiting on the J>C translator. Understand now?

      And here’s our first hater. I know your are dumb, probably a result of you landing on your heard while you were still a baby, so, I’ll try to explain it once again so that your empty head can finally understand. Unless, you pay them to translate translaters like zxzxzx don’t owe us anything. They are translating for free and they do have a life. Sometimes, it gets in the way and other times situations like not getting the raws will come up. Be glad you were at least able to read rest of the chapters till now. If you still don’t like his speed then I have a simple suggestion for you; never visit this site again. Do you have any idea about how hard it is to translate?!

      On a side note, thank you zxzxzx for your hard work. Looking forward to the next chapter of SMNK.

    Thanks for the hard work, i used to read DXD in spanish but the translations were so awful that i decided to switch to english, and its because of you that i can keep up to date with the history, one more time thank you very much, and sorry for the english(in case of any mistake)

      No worries mate. Any reason in particular why the Spanish translations are bad?

        its because they use google translate i guess, their sentences don’t make sense at all, well some of them make sense but, that’s not what is bad, they are bad because, when i read them in spanish and then in english i noticed that the situation described doesn’t matched, of course i couldn’t expected it to be a literal translation but the things were like yellow an golden, your translation being the golden one of course.

        Can i use your work to translate to Spanish?

    Found this on animesuki. Spoiler/teaser for next Hagure Yuusha?

    While it doesn’t confirm anything, I think it at least shows that it isn’t completely scrapped. On hiatus yes. Though at the same time I also think when (/if?) it continues there will be only 2 or 3 more volumes.

    Been a while zxzxzx. A little late but I hope you had a Happy New Year.

    It can’t be help if the source doesn’t exist

    If this case, can you priorize to translate Shinmai Maou no Keiyakusha?

    I insist because the anime version essentially adapts till volume 7, and I want to know what exactly happen after this?

    Pd: Just a side question, so if you can’t respond, it doesn’t matter

    I remember that you said that DxD side stories are low priority because sooner or later will be formally published. Have you read them?
    Do you know if in some story the main characters find a formal human unwilly transformed in devil or vampire and the characters try to help him or her?

      Yep, plan to do so in the next few weeks.
      The Seikoku no Ryuu Kishi update I’ve listed has been done for a while actually…just haven’t had time to upload.

      As for your side question, I haven’t read all of them. Maybe just one or two more than what has been translated so far. I haven’t come across any short story with a plot like what you’ve described.

        Oki

        I ask because I consider weird

        For the seen setting till now, Rias Gremory has her sense of honor and certainly she wouln’t transform someone against his/her will if know that hey wouldn’t cooperate, and the dead/almost dead people, they at last would feel indebed with her

        But it is implied, specially for Azazel’s speech in volume 10 and 12, that some times the devils [and vampires too, no details] convert some people just because they want their powers or just for fun, all against their will

        With the seen settings till now I can see 4 possibilities

        a. Just put the evil piece before the person and this is instantly transformed [improvable, but not impossible with the seen material]

        b. Devils lying to the people, and then turned in slaves [the most provable with the seen material]

        c. They want a person, and this refuse, just kill him/her and use the piece with the corpse

        d. They want a person, and this refuse and s/he is too strong to force and/or kill, just threat to kill the family if not cooperate

        The b. I think that is people’s fault to accept before to know all the details. but c. and d. would be completely inmoral and dishonest, so I can’t believe that they are acceptable specially if all factions try to cooperate

    Any chance Hagure Yuusha going to get picked up? Raws can be found on Jcafe, I found this is site when i was looking for tl’s so I was wondering whether you dropped it or was only a passing comment. Don’t mean to be a bother.

      It’s been on my plans for a while, but I’ve been busy with other projects so haven’t actually had time to make a start on it.
