Yuusha Party 10-12

Happy Halloween! (I’m PST, it’s still Halloween here!)

Just in time for the Former Underlings arc, Chapters 10-12! Read it on Google Docs
(we’re also looking into setting up another reading platform for people who have issues viewing on Google Docs, if you have any suggestions, let me know! Google Docs will still be our primary viewing platform however)

The first volume of the Light Novel version has been released for Yuusha Party. If you enjoy the story, please support the author and buy the book, it comes with pretty pictures! =D
And speaking of pictures, if you haven’t seen the character concepts by illustration artist La-Na, check out this post on animesuki forums.

Also, while translating these chapters, the issue of the Harpy underling’s name came up. I used my favorite interpretation, but I’m still unsure of which translation I should use (fantasy names in Japanese are hard to decode). Based on the Katakana Ha-pi-ne-su, it could be any of the following (taking into account that since Japanese don’t have a ‘fee’ and ‘th’ sound they are often substituted with ‘pi’ and ‘su’ respectively:
Happyness
Hapines
Hapyneth (based on names like Gwyneth and Lyneth)
Haphineus (based on King Phineus, a major icon in Harpy mythos, a bit of a stretch but fitting)
Haphyneth (combo of the last two)

If you’d prefer a different interpretation of her name from the above list, please let me know in a comment below! (or even if you like the name I chose already) I am still willing to go back and change her name at this point based on public opinion (if there is any).

Next release will focus on releasing our own version of chapters 1-3 that way we can provide you with a complete set, then we will return to forward progression. Hope everyone had a happy Halloween!

The names I would have gone with are Happiness and Seek, though I could understand why one wouldn’t want to use them because they sound a bit awkward.

Personally I’m terrible with names so it doesn’t matter all that much to me, that said once I get used to a name having it change feels really weird.

Thanks for the chapters.

Personally I would prefer anything else other than pastebin because it doesn’t work in my computer. (Though yesterday, I had a sudden genius-level idea and read chap 1-3 with my phone in school e_e)

I’m very bad with names so I don’t know, and thanks for the chapters!

Looking forward to chapters 1-3 so I can save them. (I like saving these for later re-reading.) I honestly am fine with the translation you went with for the name. It grew on me very easily. Thanks for the updates by the way, I’m loving this series so far.
