      if you want the translations faster why not do them yourself? or pay him to do them full time? translators do this in their spare time for free and post for us keep being an ass and he can quit and then you get no translation would you like that?

    So i just found that campione ends in what another 2-3 novels (counting from vol 18 ie), will you translate it zxzxzx?

    Btw i never expected that vol 19 and 20 were already released(obviously of campione).

      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.

      Ummm @Vb I’ll give you a hint. Go to bakapervert website and go to Fanfic. You’ll find what you need. And don’t say anything about it. Read bakapervert rules about it. You can thank him there.

      Wow, the irony. “Fake me” “So lame” Are you insulting yourself dude? If so, I feel so sad for you. Nevertheless, I feel even worse for your family and frien- wait you don’t have one. Wow, that’s even worse. Now i feel even worse for your family. They raise you up so that you can become a usefull person but now here you are. I wonder what do they see inside of you that they would still take care of you. It’s better for them to disown you for the sake of themselves. What a stupid and ignorant parents you got. Now i feel less worse. Thanks.

      In all honesty, do they still really love you?

    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.

          @Crimson and Darkness(the real one) change your icon if you can so the fake Crimson and Darkness can’t copy you anymore. One more thing, if the fake Crimson and Darkness is really Maurice Bartlett, then I’ve got only one thing. How low have you fallen until you would do this kind of thing? It’s like the Trump’s stupidness level. Seriously, you would be like the 2nd Trump insulting and blaming people without any hard proof evidence.

          Oh yeah by the way, this kind of play pretending to be someone is really really an oldschool method mate. I’ve thought of this way to humiliate you even more but I realise that if I did that I would be like a 2nd you. And I don’t want that. So have fun playing pretending shit while it last. I will wait for the day the real Maurice Bartlett that would ‘only’ insult the translator with a long ass message returns. Because lately I see that your insulting skill is getting worse and worse by the minute. So I hope the Maurice Bartlett that I know will return.

          Thank you and goodbye.

            @Anadi I really want to see the fake Crimson and Darkness changes his icon and being keep updated with the real Crimson and Darkness icon if he can. This would prove that he’s a useless piece of shit to the society who knows how to do small minor changes on the internet to disturb people and when it comes to the real deal his a scaredy cat.

      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.

      And sure you are Crimson(Not sarcasm bro, I believe you! You are a credible man). Well, the other Crimson is better.

            @Dragonx He has been doing it for years, you don’t have to show your eagerness and post latest updates here and put any pressure on him. I know you weren’t trying to do so, but I don’t think he ever needed someone to tell him that the Chinese content is out.

            Calm your oppai. If you really want to give him updates, don’t do it publicly, there are many annoying people here who might act like dicks. Just send him an email privately!

    Just thought i would mail you as we have a guy on “a place for devils” (reddit) he has been taking Japanese for 5 years he said, he is going to have a go at the last 2 chapters that Ariel hasn’t finished yet, if you want to get in contact with him maybe leave a message on his post there:

    Trying my hand at translating from HighschoolDxD

    I gave him the link for BT’s names & terminology guide  as well to help him out.

      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

      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.

        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.

          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.

            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.

    Hey y’all,

    I wanted to know. What website do y’all go to to order the DxD light novels or pre-order the new ones in Japanese?

      I was able to buy volume 22 on ebay. Usually, there’s multiple sellers on there. I don’t know if you can preorder them there though.

      I personally use the Japanese Amazon site for the digital versions. For the hardcopy, I buy them at a bookstore.

          Indeed, I’m sure that might be the case for some translators…but that would be well over a full working week dedicated to translation, at least for me, and I’m afraid I can’t do that at the moment.

      None taken. This is my hobby whenever I have time for it. Although I’m still on my break from studies at the moment, work has been really flat-out for me the past few months so I’ve had less time to translate than I normally would. I’m committed to working on my projects, I just wish I had more time…

    Night mode seems to work fine only problem I see is the box that shows your posts the comments in the box can’t  be seen due to the color of the words is white instead of black. Hope this helps you out.

      Please.. Don´t give him reasons to hate DxD.. You want some spoilers of the Life 5? Is in chinese… The user leaf27sky put all about the things of this volume:

      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.

        Assuming the kind of attitude Maurice Bartlett gives, I would be much surprise if he didn’t knew the spoiler beforehand. Because it’s him. Like literally everyone knows him. Not just here but at Code-Zero website’s, daniel Yang website’s and even Ariel_Saeba website’s. Heck he he’s even famous at animesuki for his attitude.

    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.

      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)

      • Luis Diaz says:

        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?

    • zxzxzx says:

      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
