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.
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.
