So, I know this came out of nowhere, I know I’m gonna get a lot of backlash from this (I have experience from Shura’s Wrath), and I know a lot of you are fed up with me, but this idea has been in my head for some time. Above all else, I have to say sorry to fans of HN1F.
So my translation pace hasn’t been the most stellar, and even that is quite the understatement. Now, obviously the most common suggestion is to find people to help translate, but for the purpose of my translation blog, it’s just a place I can post translations when I feel like it. It really is just recreation for me, I do this just for fun. I’m not good with working with other people and I don’t really want to work with other people. You can call me selfish, but that’s just how it is. Anyways, with the rate that I’m translating HN1F, it’s very possible that I won’t finish translating it or it’ll be many, many years from now before I finish translating it, could be 10, could be 20. I know some of you don’t care, but I do not want to see this and I do not enjoy the current situation. This is how the idea in my mind came to be.
Now, I’m sure you guys have noticed that I do a lot of teasers. This is not a mistake, I love doing teasers. Someone mentioned this before and I won’t deny it, my mind sways around a lot, it’s hard for me to focus on one thing. It happened with Shura’s Wrath, it’s starting to happen to me for HN1F. For me, sticking to the novel too long makes me start to lose interest in translation, and then translating a new novel (a teaser) renews my interest in translation. And every time I read an interesting novel, I want to translate it for you guys. I guess this is just my character. So the idea in my mind is to change the nature of the blog. Instead of focusing on a main project of which you or I might never see the end of, I will become the ultimate teaser. So I will pick a novel, translate 50-100 chapters depending on my situation, and then move on. Yup, all of that was in preparation for this one sentence. Now, I know I won’t get any long term readers, and a lot of you will leave… again, but I’m (not really) ready to accept that. I really think that this is the best format for me.
So yeah, that’s what’s been on my mind. Thank you for staying with me up to here and not just going straight to the comments to yell at me.Now, I won’t ask for you guys to forgive me, but I do hope that you can understand me, or just understand that I change my mind like a girl changes clothes. Anyways, you may now head on to the comment section and utterly destroy me and make me feel super bad about myself. Feel free to swear if you feel like no other words can describe your rage. That’s right, I already changed my mind in the time it took to write this.
