Even if you guys were licensed, they would still do their own editing and would force skythewood to do the standard 3 volumes a year release.
Let me just take this opportunity to show my gratitude to you and skythewood translations that make possible, fellows like me, who the only way to follow the story is in english.
I really do appreciate what translators have done, without them, i could not enjoy such awesome Overlord series. Its a shame that i cannot support translators and the author because im still studying, hence i dont make money on my own. The only way to show my gratefulness, unfortunately, is with words.
there's still a possibillity if the light novel version is not allowed why not the WN version....... just saying cause if you look at that part WN is different from LN
Dunno if WN is also a part where yen press have the rights.....-_-
i'll be contented with the WN than waiting for years for yen press to catch up with the current novel we're read..
we can only wait, pray, and hope.
as of 26/oct a fan asked the Author when vol10 is gonna be released, the author can only reply "I, I'll do the best i can" so dont be surprised if there is a delay.
Wow, I just found out about this....... Seriously, a great light novel will not be treated with the respect it deserves if it does not get translated as fast as SKY does. I guess this is what happens when there's too much commitment and promises until they don't meet them.
But, according to the commentors, it seems I will be super old when finally Yen Press will catch up to half of the full story. One said, studying a new language is possible. And I have to second that option. Because it is such a great story and still more to come. Besides, the anime has a low chance of continuing..... Waiting for a month is alright or a year is alright. But for a few years, just to reach volume 9.....
Some of us might not even be alive by then... (╥︣﹏᷅╥)
