    Hey, I would just like to express my sincere thanks for translating this series. I originally got to liking because of the anime, and when looking for the source material I found you. you hidden gem of a translator. of the three books you are translating (I think it’s 3) I have enjoyed them all and would not have been able to read them if you did not exist. thank you. I would donate you if i had a job (and the money that comes with t)

    Hi

    Well you read that dude from Germany hear me from Iran.

    I really suffered a lot onley to find this place.There were other sites to translate but it wasnt easy at all.Or it was under policies against Iran(which is irrelevent since its art not some computer program to forbid) or it had a price but since i dont have a foreign credit card couldnt buy it.Found one other like this site but exactly next day that i went to downlod it wasnt free any more.

    Thank you a lot for your fantastic job of transaltion and a few more thanks for your free servise

    Good day

    I’m from Germany and I’d like to say:
    Thank you
    Without your work, I wouldn’t be able to read the novel. So my first request is to you:  Please don’t stop translating.
    My second, please: Go ahead and don’t make me suffer.

    I know you’re still working on other novels, and it should be fun, but if I understand it correctly, you’re the only one who translates “Shinmai maou no keiyakusha” at the moment.

    Is there anything I can do to bribe you? With German Chocolate?

    I hope it goes on.
    Good luck with your studies

    I know you’ve heard this many times but please continue too update Shinmai maou no keiyakusha, I got to like it from the animation then started reading the translation of the light novel thanks to you and reading High School DxD. I know it takes time to translate so ill be okay waiting. I like others don’t want to see it dropped and hope to see it through to the end with your skills. And also thank you for the update of H.S DxD.

    Please, please, please, continue translating Shinmai Maou no Keiyakusha. It’s my favorite light novel that has been adapted to an anime, however, no one has been updating it for the past few months. To add, the updates from translators have not been frequent. So please, if you can, please, please, continue translating Shinmai Maou no Keiyakusha. Please.

     

    P.S Thanks for translating, High School DxD I’ve been reading High School DxD for uh…..Research. Yes, I’ve been reading High School DxD for research so thx for that. Keep up the good work.

    Hey Zxzxzx did you hear the news for about Vol 12 for Shinmai Maou will be the final novel released. Someone from a Facebook page I follow sometimes posteded the Update 3 days ago. Will you and [email protected] be doing further volumes after 7 until 12 in bewteen breaks on Active work. hope you do finish this and all current series without dropping it. Translaters for Light novels is getting harder to find since that damn DMCA issues 1 1/2 – 2 yrs ago happened. Many just quit and series where abanded. Baka-tsuki forums lately have been come sort of a Ghost Town for unanswered and requested information.

    Hey zxzxzx thanks for translating DxD (one of my most favourite series) , shinmai maou and dragonar knight. I know you have lost interest in shinmai maou . and I understand why, but shamelessly I am  going to make a request . can you prioritize  v8 ch3 ( dissecting my nights with you) of shinmai maou over other shinmai maou chapters. It is an extremely important chapter (for me at least ) starring hasegawa as main heroine. Why? you want ask why I requested such a thing? you will understand when you read / translate it or you can check the wikia of shinmai for spoilers. A partially translated version is available on B-T and the other site of shinmai translation have put a sample out , which is quite more than on the one on B-T.

    It is but of course up to you if you want to translate.

    Can you please please please translate this instead of that crap DxD that is? No offense to anyone, but i am honestly tired of the whole fan service that has gone as long as for about 23 volumes now with a degenerate MC who chants non stop oppai this and oppai that with no action, at least this novel has that and the harem is way better.

    • zxzxzx says:

      I honestly don’t read DxD for the fanservice, as odd as that may seem. I read it because it has a depth and story that I enjoy.

    • dragon-maou says:

      I understand your feelings zx about DxD . even I read it because of plot, it is funny and interesting, and not fan service. If anything fan service is just am extra topping. By the way , Ishaan shinmai has quite a lot of fanservice with a lot of groping and licking etc. I don’t understand how can you call DxD  crap and not shinmai (especially if you call it crap because of fan service).

        hmmmm……..

        nice lie. how i know?

        how you get to know about dxd novel? by anime. and admit it everyone who see and like the anime enjoy fanservices. those who not dont like anime wont jump to light novel. i admit that now it has deapth, funny but if you are hear and you enjoy fanservices in start. If you only want deapth then there are many more light novel which is bouht funny/non funny with the character development, and other things. but you chose this why???

      “The Harem is better” Holy Shit,  i cant believe those words coming out of your mouth. All of Issei’s girls have had character development way more than i ever expected to occur in a freakin ecchi series

      Heck,  even Issei is becoming more and more mature and alpha as the series goes on

      Need i to say the world building and the lore in dxd is a lot better than shinmai?

        Are there any differences between the japanese and chinese versions especially in case of the lewd scenes since chinese tend to censor stuff?

        • zxzxzx says:

          0

          Not really, the Chinese is actually more explicit I find. If the Chinese version was ‘official’, then it might be toned down a bit, but the current translation stays fairly close to the original aside from the honorifics.

            Oh so its the Chinese fan TL of Shinmai not the official one. No wonder. I thought it was kinda weird how a novel like Shinmai even managed to get an official chinese version.

            Is it the same with DxD as in the chinese version being the fan TL one and with the ecchi scenes being left as they are in the original JP version?

          • zxzxzx says:

            1

            0

            I’ve compared both the official (Taiwanese publisher) and fan TLs of DxD, and they are much the same. Nothing is really censored or removed from the official version.

    Yo Zxzxzx are you still in the Progress of Translating  Shinmai Maou no Keiyakusha. BT has deemed the Project as stalled since there has been no update on Baka-Tsukis page in 3 Months. Will you be updating your blog soon with finished Chapters from vol 7 and is there any word from J2270A on what Afterward pages he/she will be doing for witch volumes that are missing. Kind feel unfinished when the Afterwards Page is untranslated to concluded the volumes. Thanks and Have a Good Even.

      Still translating chapter 3 at the moment whenever I’m not translating DxD. I haven’t spoken to J2270A in a while so not sure how things are at the moment, but the afterwords are not really worth it at the moment given that the content of the volumes following them have already been completed.

  44. AMIT KUMAR DUTTA says:

    So will u translate the afterwords too, or are u gonna leave it like that??? I am just asking because u have translated most of the afterwords until now, and many volumes afterwords are not translated.
    And do u know if the rest afterword will be translated or not?

    • zxzxzx says:

      I think I’ll skip the afterwords for now…I’d rather focus on catching up on the main content for this series. Afterwords are something I might go back to do later…though last I heard, J2270A was also thinking of doing some of the afterwords.

    Have you dropped this series?

    On B-T the person who has been working on vol 7 (J2270A) seems to have stopped after v7c1 and not picked it up for any further translations.

    It would be great if someone still worked on TL’ing this, because the way that nomi has been only doing select parts of volume 8-9 pisses me off.

    • zxzxzx says:

      Well, it all depends on time. I suspect that I will be busy finishing off v21 of DxD and v22 will also be out so I will not have much time remaining for SMnK.

            I won’t have the time to translate soon,  so I’ll most likely be spending the next six months trying to finish V5. Even if I do manage to finish V5 while I am sure the free time I will get will be erratic, I’ll most likely go on to one of the side stories so that I don’t interrupt progress for the main volumes. So, good luck with the project, and all the best
