  1. TSKD got licensed. Guess I will just have to wait another 12 years for the official release to catch up. Not like life is short or anything.
    In any case, thanks to you guys for translating this far. Much appreciated.

    1. 12 years? At this rate, it’s faster to learn Japanese ourselves, and read the WN that is available online.
      Might re-read necromancer arc while we’re at it.

  2. Who licensed it ? Anyways it’s going to take for ever to reach where you were at , don’t know what you plan to do with it as some continue to translate licensed work and remove the chapters that are published by the licencors , I do know that J-novel club works that way don’t know about others for sure though.

    1. I mean, what’s up with everyone assuming it is already “gone”. Supreme tentacle only said TSKD got licensed, meaning the LN version got licensed. This is the wn version. Unless ST says he’ll stop translating it, there’s no need to panic.

      1. Depends on how seven seas sees it….some companies want WN translations stopped when they pick up LN, though there are some who ignore it so long as LN stuff isn’t included. Ziru still translates LDM (wn) even though the ln version is licensed. It’s entirely up to how Seven Seas looks at this and whether ST wants to continue it. Some groups, like RTD, will drop a web novel when the light novel is licensed like they’re planning to drop Smartphone (wn) after a couple more chapters.

      2. The reason why they are dropping smartphone though is that the light novel is litterally 4 months away from catching up and 6 months away from over-taking them. No point in continuing the wn when the official ln is going at the pace of 1 vol every 2 months.

        Yeah i knew that, it’s part of the “unless ST says he’ll stop TLing it” too. I mean if seven seas is against TLing wn, ST will still say he’ll stop it because of them XD

  4. Ouch … While I’m glad the series got the attention it deserves, and will absolutely buy it if there is an ebook version, it will be hard to wait to catch up to current progress.

    Guess I will buy a black cat in the meantime.
    Come here Fran …

  5. Really hope that TSKD is still going to remain as project here, since LN license doesn’t automatically mean that WN is out. I’ll probably end up buying LN version, but waiting couple of years till they catch up with current WN translation.
    But ultimately it depends on ST and how he feels about continue this series, so looking forward to the next post for details.

  6. And why is that become problem if it got licensed? If i may to ask.

    Mainstream novels for example like Konosuba & Overlord, even WN ver Tensei Shitara Slime got licensed too but translation group still working on it.

    1. It depends on the people with the LN license. Some of them don’t like the WN translation continuing and will want it shut down, usually because they see it impacting their profits. They do have the legal muscle to do it, whether they have the right to or not, but you can see their licensing as having the power to represent the author/company who they bought the license from…at least that’s something j-novel implied.

  7. If ever it is dropped from translating could you mind checking out this novel called ‘Stupid FPS player fall into another world’? Still knowing TSK got licensed and in the verge of not be able to read it makes me sad. This is the second time I felt so damn cheated, the first one was the novel of “The different world’s magic is way too behind!’ and now my beloved Fran and master combo too!! Hope still alive when the licensed ones comes out. orz

  8. This is sad indeed, but I do hope that it’ll be like Death March where the author still continues with the WN and it’s nothing to do with the licensed LN

  9. I hope this can be settled. I think Guro Trans got the same problem with Tensura, they email the author, and then got permission to continue..
