Hello, stuff is happening around me for a while, some issues with insurance and such. No need to worry, just very exhausting. Yet proofreading volume 6 is going somewhere and while I may start releasing it in May instead of April (a releasing is a tedious work), it will be still in spring!
For now, look at the cover and read the preview!
“I have good news! Our renown is rising.” – Ara’ainn phrasing it like this can only mean…
This is the difference between Rine and me. The reason why I may never feel strong again. She’s someone who shatters common sense by just doing her best without even bragging. – Kenta feels an insurmountable wall.
That evening, finally Ara-san gives her lesson about magic. – It’s finally starting!
“If we do get separated,” Kyou-san starts, “what will we do, Ken?” “Die.” – The danger they’ll face may be as much as the danger they’ll avoid.
“Oh shit! It’s Ara’ainn!” – An old acquaintance? Friend or foe?
“Everyone, I have an idea,” Rine’s voice cheerily just interrupts this tense moment. “Let’s sing.” – Leave it to her to brutally change topics.
“A real witch?” Actually, she looks the part, her hat with a wide brim gives her certainly the flair. If she knows [Black Magic], she might know how to break the marriage curse of the ring! – A chance encounter!
What caused this? My eyes wander through the mist, there is a shape, enclosing. Walking on two legs, taller than a human, has a tail and claws, wait… isn’t that… what is a ss’rak doing here?– The past catches up.
Hey, volume 5.5 is finally finished. Here are the Extras and here the Afterword. There is also a new poll, who makes the best husband material? Might be for yourself, for a friend, a sibling or whoever you can think of.
We have a new proofreader, Antsago is so nice and finished the Extras quick and is now onto volume 6, a great relieve. With a it of luck, he might also be ready to look over the volume 5.5-parts I needed to release without PR… I can hope, right?
My current plan is to continue releasing volume 6 in April, looking at April 13th loosely. Might take longer depending on the PRing and how much progress I make with volume 7. Finally at a point where I can start with the climax. So many things I want to do… -_-‘
Of course I will release this and that before. Like the next cover and the head banner that I’ll make out of it! Until then, have fun!
Here it is, the epilogue. It also has a character-design in it. Kenta learns an important lesson about the real importanceof world-building, the king has sometime with his daughters, and the Lady is still being ominous.
We’re heading towards volume 6 and there is still no PR done there, because I lack someone who would do it. I’m sad about it, so please, seize the opportunity to read what’s ahead and apply as a PR… and help me with the linguistical hiccups!
Next time we’ll start the extras. Need to see whether it’s next week or the week after this. Maybe I’m splitting them, because of my busy schedule and how much work is to be done on them…
The teacher-story is finished, may be a bit open, yet it’s good to see what they’re up to. Not much, as they’re facing fundamental problems that they couldn’t see because of their preconceptions based on their experiences in the modern world. yet Saegusa-sensei may have at least found a clue.
Volume 6’s cover is finished and I’m still looking for a PR for it. Would be such a waste to not have it in proper English, I mean, it’s good, so it should also be well PRed! …anyone?
Haven’t written much on volume 7’s alpha-draft this week. I have opened a whole barrel of things to write with a scene and while I plan to get through it, the volume may be long… no, rather loooooooooong. Need to mentally prepare and use an upcoming day off to actually get into writing this to a point that I can fill the rest during my rides to work.
Next time, we’ll have the epilogue which will tie up some ends. Soon, the Extra Volume will be done.
Here is the second part of the final chapter of volume 5.5. Here Rine’s father may come across as a bit… he’s as ardent as his daughter just less naive and optimistic. May be because of the age or the responsibility of being a king.
It was a busy week, yet I added something to the Epilogue to make it feel rounder and I’m pass the half-point of volume 7 I suppose… well, I think? Somehow it became even longer than expected so far, but I do tend to err on the final part, it’s often shorter than I predict. Still need a proofreader for volume 6…
Next time, we’ll see how stuff will move in Funkenpflug, the research village. Things change as the story goes on and Saegusa Mamiko-sensei will need to find new ways to approach things: Her research, her students, her understanding of this world…
We’re starting the final extra story. This time, we look at the teachers and what happened to those students who don’t partake in the combat-group. Mostly the teachers though. Also continues last volume’s canonical Extra story.
Still no PR, hanging in… even MioChin started to feel sorry for me, giving me this one as a way to show his support.
I sure hope that you won’t think that every week I have no PR I show a new pic… Like I said before, I would be satisfied with someone PRing volume 6, as it’s way more important than volume 5.5 which was a necessary way to do something else, but can be cut with little issues (though it fills holes for volume 7).
Next time, we’re going to see how Taniguchi-sensei and Rine’s father will interact. I had this scene for years in my head.
Hey there, Kenta and his wives are briefly back in this intermission, with a piece of world-building I was dying to get out, but had never the opportunity to do so without tagging it lovelessly on something.
Still hanging in without someone to proofread, if you’re interested, please contact me!!! 😦
Pictures and such of volume 6 is almost finished, but it also needs a PR. Even if you hate the thought pf PRing volue 5.5, maybe you’ll find a heart for volume 6 only?
Next time, the final story of the extra volume will begin (3 parts again). Hope you’ll like it as it takes some time to look at what happens around the non-combatants.
Last part of second chapter, Lent is building his army! One of the many parts that I stretched after revisiting them as it seemed so… well, it should be anticlimatic, but not so short. It’s still short though…
Well, now again without proofreading. Really sad about it, but I’m done stretching this Extra-volume. Though I would really appreciate the help, if anyone like to PR a bit here and there, please tell me!
To the story: It was fun imagining this version of orcs, their history and their wants and needs, though delving into it at that point would have been entirely purposeless, as it’s a story about Lent and Star. Still, good things I can do with them, especially if I combine them with the alfr… hehehehe!
Next up is the 2nd intermission, so Kenta and his wives. I would love to do it soon though having no PR in there is always a bummer. Will see what I can do about it… or maybe you can do something about it? Please vote in TWF!
Sorry for the long, long delay. First, it was a lack of proofreading, then the business before Chrismas, then my health, then Christmas, then health again (because I forced myself over Christmas), New Years, and visiting my parents which are living where no internet can be. It was definitely bad timing, especially considering that this happened during the Extra Volume which is already pushing volume 6 a bit back. I need to figure something out for volume 6, anyone PR here? If everything is already PRed before the volume hits the web, I won’t have no reason to push back stuff again.
Finally, part 2 of the second story is here, the story about Lent and Star, the “true heroes” and how they fare within the necropolis. As true heroes, even the way they gain allies is like cheating!
The alpha-draft of volume 7 is on a good way. Volume 6 is fully beta-drafted and MioChin and I have decided to include some nice scenes.
Sorry for the wait, first I thought “Ah, maybe two or three days later then”, now it turned out to be an entire week. November and December are very busy months for a lot of people, including myself and my PR. The chapter itself is about the two “true heroes” who face a whole necropolis and learn about themselves in a way… or just use shenanigans as they’re overwhelmengly powerful. Or are they?
Still need to Betadraft the Extra, but at least I’m finished with Betadrafting volume 6 and the patreons with the Premium-package can now look at it. Now MioChin and I will work on the illustrations.
I can’t say if we get the next chapter ready next Saturday, but we’ll try our best. Next part, the heroes will try some new strategies and will meet up with a fantasy classic.
