Woah the LN indeed different with the anime. I forgot, but I think on the anime never mentioned about the stadium accident and when read the LN is really a mind shock. Glad JNC took this one, I think I will put this one on my read list
It was a nice part. Possible Existentional Evolution in the future, and this entire situation with airship was hilarious. God knows, I myself sometimes act like this if I can get my hands on something that really interested me :).
Plus, YEP they are vampires. Even more clues now. I mean, Laura seemingly is a young lady who is 10-14 years old, but at the same time she has eyes that have seen countless battles and is supposedly afflicted with a disease that, as mentioned before, needs decades upon decades to develop and kill its host? Moreover, this is a final, terminal stage? Additionally, it was just mentioned that mature vampires are pretty much indistinguishable from humans and many of them achieve high-ranking, affluential, and influential positions in society... While Rent is visiting exactly that type of family. Then add this vial of vampire blood to boot. Come on! I really love this novel, but, from the last few parts, I do feel like the author just picked freakishly big maul and started hammering my head with it :D.
volume 6 part 4 prepub
was frantically trying [...] in a rather frantic (The double use of "frantic" stood out to me, so just highlighting as a possible style revision)
47%: As expected, a rather advanced world like this didn't have the imagination to keep up with her.
The meaning of this sentence felt off on a couple of fronts, so suggesting review, though it's possible this is just me disagreeing with the author (I can't read jp and have no idea what the original phrasing is): 1 is that this "world" is refering to the current setting, which I would have called "undeveloped," opposite to "rather advanced," in relation to Mizuki's original world.
This second disconnect might be resolved if the first part was changed, but I would have expected a "rather advanced world" to be able keep up with Mizuki's imagination (a more advanced world allowing for a further reaching imagination), whereas a more primitive world would be less likely to.
I only had time to read the prologue this morning but noticed a minor mistake:
"The coldness of the voice had nothing to with the speaker's temperament,"
Should be nothing to "do"~
While I don't have time to read the rest of the volume right this second, I must say, Volume 2 has always had one of my favorite intros out of the first few books. There's such a strong feeling of sadness to it. It's a rare personal look into some of the mythos, and I love how much conflicting story goes into this volume.
Thanks for all the hard work!
@terabyte Thanks, Tera! Quick note:
-- ____ stone/____ magic stone are used interchangeably or "for short" in some cases. Non-issue.
@Mank Looks like we'll need to look out for colloquial mentions of "hour"/"minute" in future. As for styles of quotes and ellipses, we're going to need to make sure our editing programs are consistent so we don't get a mix between us. Also, can you do a check on the "percent" mention in Part 4? Also can you double check me on the stone/magic stone thing to make sure I'm not talking out my buttcelterge?
@thegeneral1234 Nah Vlad the Impaler has a different Background story. First of all he was called a monster (or to be precise this is a different viewpoint of his nickname Draculea, which can mean Son of the Dragon or in rumanian Son of the Devil) as his enemies said he collects the blood of his victims (or grills the children of his enemies). And as his favorite tutore method was cruel it got exagerated.
But this made him the best role model for our dear Bram Stoker.
Here is the bonus library background that comes with buying on Bookwalker. It’s on sale for $5.96 for a limited time. (Note that it still doesn’t come with premium bonuses).
Supposedly it is an illustration from V3, but it doesn’t really spoil anything.
@unsynchedcheese That seems to be the plan of the current head, yes. Probably not something that will happen any time soon, though. I'm thinking of starting to read the web novel (which is really just a publicly available draft for the light novel, as the author said at one point) once this volume is over, but I don't even see it happening in all the available chapters.
@guspaz Regarding the nickname "Klem," I realize this was decided internally but never shared publicly. @soldierblue and I wanted a "cutesy" name and suggestions like "Krum" didn't fit that, among other names we tossed around.
And to clarify for everyone else, Demons are "a race of humans who had somehow received the blood of the Fallen" (vol. 1). It's also never explained what exactly a Fallen is, other than the fact that they "belong to the family of the Demon Lord," "possessed some kind of beast-like trait," and "appear similar to the other races, but are completely different beings altogether" (vol. 1). Therefore, with the Demon Lord being the "King of all Fallen" (vol. 3), Fallen are a sub-species of Demon Lord.
In this case, Klem and Edelgard would be considered as separate races, with Diablo only missing Demon and Dwarf waifus.
Gotta love the L and R issues when translating Japanese. Seriously Valefor becoming Foll makes no sense. if you have enough freedom maybe giving her the nickname Vale would work better, that both sounds good and makes sense. Then again for all we know changing this could cause problems later.
