Some of you translators are nice.
Don't go to Yen Press tomorrow if you work in Yen Press as a translator for Overlord.
Happening massacre shootout will be broadcast tomorrow.
So long my fellow heteromorphic race!~
If only Skythewood translation group were official translators, maybe they could've licensed Overlord volumes for themselves. Their translation quality is far better than some of Yen Press's works like No Game No Life.
Yeah, some of them wanted to do that. But some of the members of the team firmly said that they are doing it for free and just for their interest and hobby whioe not being paid to do so. Like me. XD
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.
