Yuusha Party 13-14 | Moving iminent

Yuusha Party chapter 13 and 14 are live! Go read them!

We finally get to see Youki being totally OP, and his cheat is revealed! Chapter 13 is mildly rage inducing, but Youki comes back with a vengence in chapter 14 |D

And both chapters have illustrations!

Also, am I the only one here that imagined Mirror’s voice as Android 17 from DBZ Abridged? It just seems to fit so well.


Also I will be moving here in a few weeks (signing a new lease tomorrow). It may interrupt translations somewhat, but as always, you’ll be able to see my progress on the chart. If nothing has changed on the chart in a few days, I’m probably balls deep in packing and moving.

Also you may have noticed the “June Surprise” teasers mentioned on the progress chart. my birthday is in late June, so as a present to me, I am TLing some teasers 8D I hope you’ll all enjoy them when they’re revealed!

Yuusha Party 11-12

I lied…No Goblin no Oukoku chapter this time (sorry!). But I do have two fresh new chapters of Yuusha Party! Plus, 12 has a new illustration =D

Yay.

Thank you so much to everyone who joined my harem team! Look at this beautiful piece of literature!

OreDungeon re-write | Progress chart

So I woke up this morning to an update from Komanchi, author of OreDungeon. I was excited…until I saw today’s date under all chapters but the first chapter…there also now seemed to be less chapters. Upon further investigation, Komanchi stated that they decided to rewrite their novel starting at chapter 2 (with revisions to chapter 1).

ლ(ಥ益ಥლ y u do dis to me????

This is probably one of the few downfalls of translating a novel so early in its development. So please be patient as I look through the revisions to chapter 1 and translate the new versions of the chapters /D;;;;

I’m just glad I was so caught up in TLing Yuusha Party that I hadn’t touched chapter 7 of OreDungeon yet….


Also if you’d like to see where I am in translating stuff, take a look at the side bar and click the link to the HaruPARTY Translation Progress Chart

I had no idea I had so many F5 fans, as I’ve seen plenty of anons looking at it without me actually posting an announcement for it (until now). Thank you devout F5ers, you made my day.

Yuusha Party 10 | OreDungeon 5-6 |Recruitment

Another Double update, though only half as many chapters this time.

Yuusha Party 10

OreDungeon 5-6

Also, are you a native English Speaker, or ESL who feels comfortably proficient at English? Do you really like Yuusha Party and want to help it be released faster?? Do you want to keep Solistia from shamelessly throwing herself at the feet of other, busier editors???

Please join HaruPARTY as an editor! I am in dire need of some editors (the last few chapters have been edited with me begging and pleading free ReT staffers to help 8A8), so I need to add more people to the team! Just shoot me an email at theluminaria [at] gmail [dot] com if you’re interested in being an active editor! Someone with really good syntax skills would also be a nice bonus! Thank you ♥


Also a big thanks to those of you that donated to the tip jar! The chocolate is delicious |D

om nom nom

I may also have bought a couple new LNs with that money, so hopefully more stories in the future ;D

Next update should include another chapter of Goblin no Oukoku (for those dying for another release)

Yuusha Party WN20-22/LN 8-9 | OreDungeon 1-4

Here it is! Finally more Yuusha Party! Also, as of this post, we will officially be switching over to the LN version (now that I have masted the art of text hooking the digital novels to be able to copy+paste =D). LN chapter 8 starts at WN chapter 20. I’ll go back and refigure the older chapters (labeling them as Chapter 1 (part 1/2/etc) as they tie to the LN.

Does this mean I’ll be going back and retranslating the earlier LN chapters? No. Why? They are not significantly different enough to call for it.
Let me explain. Just to double check the difference between the WN and LN, I took them through a text comparison tool. The two are virtually identical as in, a word here and there was changed to fit better, maybe a couple words added, every now and then a new sentence was added or an old one reworked. While there were a couple scene reconfigurations, they were, for the most part, the same. Why bother with translating the LN rather than the WN then?

The reason words and sentences in the LN were reworked was so they made more sense. It’s easier for me to translate when the author doesn’t use weird sentence configurations or odd words. Also the couple scene configurations flow better, and are A) funnier, and B) more adorable.  So yes. We shall be sticking with the LN. As a bonus, that means we’ll also be able to translate the bonus stories in the LNs. Yay, celebration.

So WN chapter 20-22, LN chapter 8-9 is ready for reading on Google Docs or On the Blog
(How many of you just got a new waifu? ;D)


More reason to celebrate! HaruPARTY is adding on a new project. (But wait, you say, don’t you have enough projects already? I retort with, you mean projects I care about and actually want to do? silence fills the room. Do go on, you say).

So, this project was meant to be a teaser…but then I fell in love with it, so yeah, new official project. A relatively new Narou web novel (only 8 chapters as of today), whose title translates to:

Ore ga Isekai Danjonda! ~Tensei shitara karada ga danjonto kashiteita~
I’m another world’s dungeon! ~After reincarnating, my body became that of a dungeon~

I lovingly refer to it as OreDungeon. I just about died laughing from the title and told myself, this needs a TL, like now.  So yes, the guy is, in fact, a DUNGEON. Elf girl slave? Check. Harem tag? Check. Shenanigans?! Double check.
Go forth and read chapters 1-4!

Also, watch out for trucks in Japan. They kill so many people. So. Many.

Teasers, PDFs & coming Blog-hosted chapters, and Tip Jar!

In between translating Yuusha Party chapters, I often come across intriguing titles on reddit or batoto or somewhere else that talks about untranslated Web and Light Novels. If I find it intriguing, I may TL a chapter or two, with no intention to finish, just to generate interest. In effect, a Teaser.  These will be hosted on the blog and not GDocs (yay?). Just click that fancy new menu section, Teaser, to the left.

The first teaser I have is Goblin no Oukoku (The Goblin Kingdom). Although there’s a real summary on the page, it’s basically what if in Re:Monster, Rou wasn’t super OP, stayed a little ugly goblin, and actually used strategic knowledge to take over the world. Fun. Found by a reddit user and I found it interesting. If you’d like to take over the project, just let me know! If you have the next chapter posted, I’ll link you on the Teaser page!


Also for those that have visited the Yuusha Party project page recently, I have a PDF version of chapter 1-19 available for download! It will next be updated when volume 1 is finished (we’re basically half way through right now). I will also be (slowly) adding Yuusha Party to blog pages for those that vehemently dislike GDocs. (Rejoice!). 20 is pretty much complete, just working on TLing 21.


Also you may have noticed on the side a little tip jar. If you like what I do, and would like to say thanks in a monetary kind of way, you can now do so! Unfortunately I cannot promise more or faster chapter releases as my full time job prevents me from doing such. But I CAN promise it will be used to buy chocolate. Lots and lots of chocolate. It will make me say ‘Yum’.

You can also continue to give verbal thanks the normal way by replying to the blog posts! 8D

Thanks as always everyone!
