[Not a translation] 6 months later...

There are no translations here, so feel free to ignore this.


Hi there,



The first post on this blog was 17th September 2014, so it has been 6 months and a few days since I started posting here. During this time, I translated 2 volumes of Altina, 2 volumes of Knight's & Magic, 2 volumes of Gifting and V2 of Overlord.

I try to stick to the official Chinese version, but there is still a chance that I missed some stuff because I am not using the source material. Like some proz amateur translator said, translating from a translation is always wrong. Always.

Which brings me to this point.



Desperate people calls for desperate measures, so if you are willing to make do with me, I'm cool with it. If not, I guess you can pretend I don't exist and do something else. Please, don't come here if it upsets you. I don't want to make you sad, there are already plenty of sad things in this world .


Project updates:
Knight's & Magic V2 will be completely translated next Tuesday. I can't read Japanese, so please carry on the search for a Jap TL to take over the project. Good luck.

Personally speaking, I like Gifting. But going by the page views and donations, it is not popular with others. Maybe the manga version would do better. Majority wins, will put this on hiatus.

Good news for Altina, someone is picking it up. MythosIX has started working on the translation, and the editing team is helping him. Round of applause for the new translator.

As for Overlord, it is not my project, I am just helping. The current team is Ferro, Sene9ty, Ghoststaker, Namorax, Fate Trooper, Exct G. Remember to credit them, not me.


Shout outs to all the people editing my works. Darkdhaos, Chris S, Fate Trooper, Cristian, Khyree, RavenSlither, Maximilian, Yan and Storm Loki. Thanks for making my works readable, I am grateful for all your help.


I need some rest, will take a break and just do editing for now.


Beware of motor vehicles in Japan.

  1. Thank for the update. Sad to know that there won't be more translations from you, but you deserve a break.
    Do you need to stop gifting on a cliffhanger though? :)

    2. Yeah, It saddens me to know that gifting will be put on hiatus. During a cliffhanger like that even.

  6. GIFTING!!!! NOOOOOOO
    Guess people just don't like humor as much as we do

  7. Wait, drop gifting right at the dangerous cliffhanger? Now my addiction will drive me nuts wanting to know what happens next.

    ReplyDelete
  8. We implore you o mighty one! At least translate the next novel of gifting and free us of tormenting cliffhanger!

    ReplyDelete
  9. Damn, and I really like Gifting....

    ReplyDelete
  10. :sigh: oh well. Time to troll Gifting before other fishes.... if any.

    ReplyDelete
  11. Thanks for all the translation, you deserve to take a rest.

    I have a question and I hope it want be taken the wrong way but, since someone else is going to be translating Altina , is there a need to put Gifting on hiatus ? (I mean after you return from your break )

    ReplyDelete
  12. First time commenting on here, but gifting is definitely a favorite of mine (I love them all so if you have time for it pls translate if not i understand, that cliffhanger though)

    ReplyDelete
  13. Oki

    Thank you very much for your hard work

  14. Gifting on Hiatus? NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!

    (Does Blogger have character limits? I want to ad more Os)

    ReplyDelete
  15. No, not Gifting plz. That is the only reason i come here every day just to check if there is new update on gifting.

    ReplyDelete
  16. Will u still post altina chapters here? BTW, thanks for all the hardwork!

    ReplyDelete
  17. gifting is genius unlike the wish fulfillment op mc harem of perfect girl everyone seems to love. Every Wednesday I wait desperately for the new chapter of gifting. The main character is very likable, the harem is slightly satire, and the interactions between characters is interesting.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Same. I honestly got bored of the novels with OP MC that keeps magically getting power ups and everything he needs thrown at him with a nonsensical harem of girls that just happen to like the MC because the MC is the MC.

      Delete
    2. Well, to be honest, there's not too much of that on this site (Overlord maybe but even then it is an unusual take on the tale) : neither Altina nor Eru nor Kazuma are completely in this mold.
      Though I'm sad to see Gifting go especially with the current cliffhanger !

      Delete
  18. Good work, a good rest but it makes my heart sad to know you will drop gifting since it on volume 6 +2 side stories in Chinese... but your call but I still like it.

    ReplyDelete
  19. Poor sky. not being paid enough to translate.

    ReplyDelete
  20. Thank you very much for all your hardwork!
    You do deserve a break after all that.

    Thank you for all the translations!!

    ReplyDelete
  21. Thank for all the hard work. Enjoy you break but please don't forget about us and never come back!

    ReplyDelete
  22. Noooooooooooooooooooooooooooo...... not gifting T_T It is one of my favourite LN for both the fantasy adventure genre combine with well written comedy. All other novel idea of comedy is only innocent ecchi/sex jokes only >_< I also enjoyed Magic & Knights because of you. You pick up good novels, and your translation are so easy to read.

    I don't understand people complaining that you're not translating from the source. If they care so much about it, then they should translate the novels from the source themselves.

    We, your fans, appreciate your translations and know those complainers will not translate those LN from the source, so we're really sadden by your announcement.

    Have a good rest, I will still follow you and wait till the day you decided to pick up translating again T_T

    ReplyDelete
  23. Thank you very much for your hard work!
    Life without Gifting will be like life without daily explosion...

    ReplyDelete
  24. I know it's ultimately your choice, but please reconsider working on Gifting after your break! It's become one of my favorite novels and I'm sure tons of people are also looking forward to reading how it develops. Well in any case, hope you enjoy your break, it's well deserved and thank you for Volume 2 of Gifting. Have a nice day :D

    ReplyDelete
  25. Thanks for all your hard work.
    *Bows respectfully*

    I haven't read Gifting yet since I didn't enjoy the manga but I will read it. Eventually. Probably.
    Just like I will read Overlord.

    ReplyDelete
  26. Look at the bright side, we've got someone to continue Altina... Can anyone please give me the link for MythosIX's translations?

    ReplyDelete
  27. So... If more people visit and donate for Gifting, will it be taken off the hiatus status?

    ReplyDelete
  28. Thank you for all you hard work
    I came here to read Gifting
    I dont know about other but im a big fan
    I really do hope you return Gifting from hiatus some day(soon please)

    ReplyDelete
  29. RIP Gifting :(
    I wonder why no one likes gifting? Judging from the comments... It's pretty popular. Which brings me to my next point...

    So translate gifting pls. <3

    ReplyDelete
  30. Personally, like you, I prefer Gifting rather than K&M. But I'll give Altina a go!
    By the way I appreciate that you put Gifting on hiatus after finishing the volume. Cliffhanger is cliffhanger, but is always better than half finished job. :) Thank you very much. I, like others, I hope the hiatus will not be too long!

    ReplyDelete
  31. I've read many novel and Gifting is the best of them so please continue it

    ReplyDelete
  32. I came to skythewood after someone recomended gifting in comment post in WN Tate no Yuusha no Nariagari on Yoraikun blog. I read vol 1 and it was really interesting, after finished vol. 1 that was present by that time i try to read others novels here and only Altina catch my interest. I dont want to hear that gifting is going on hiatus :(. I think the problem with low popularity is that people dont know about this novel.Its not being recomended anywhere and its only at vol. 1 (now 2) so people only read those novel that are popular and have most chapters translated. Second vol. was more interesting than vol 1. If people recomend it on others blogs its will probably catch eyes of more people like novel Zhan Long, tate no youshi, mushi tense, etc.

    1. ach and the ilustrations are saying its love plot or girl only novel :D. But if people hear that its as good as shield bro they will start reading and see it interesting.

      Delete
    2. Unfortunately, the current trend is that people want MC that are OP. They don't want MC that aren't OP that is able to put up a fight with strategy like Mx0.

      Delete
    3. Since I'm one of these guys who don't like Gifting, I'll atleast leave my thoughts on these things here.

      First off, I don't particularly like overpowered MC's. On the contrary, I hate it when they get unreasonable power ups, it gives me an urge to just close my browser/book and never look back. But what I came to hate even more, are MC's that either get smacked about, or manipulated by their harem.
      Sadly enough, only the OP MC's don't get a "Fist of Love!" from some fuckin' tsun-tsun girl for every 5 sentences I read. And even here you have only a few who don't let themselves hit for no reason, or have a harem that doesn't have that "Love=PUNCH TO THE FACE!" formular in place.

      Honestly, I didn't read too much from it (I stumbled over the Manga by accident.) but that little gave me an awfully familiar feeling of it having an MC that either lets himself Manipulated, and/or smacked about by his own harem.

      If I should be mistaken about this, please correct me - preferably without getting personal. :)

      Delete
    4. Hmm Kazuma is not really manipulated by his harem...it is just that his harem is the definition of chaos and that even though he is the most reasonable of that bunch, he still is a normal guy with normal desires and ambitions :D

      This leads to truely awful (for the characters) situations, because they often act quite selfish. Kazuma himself e. .g often wants to look cool in front of others, while he always horribly fails when being like this when he stops thinking for himself, he is actually a good fighter and strategist :P

      In the end you can say that each of the chars have their quirks and that this series is the most down-on-earth approach I've seen for this genre - not the mighty hero fighting for justice with his (often) from evil to good converted companions but just normal people doing whatever they want to do and causing chaos left and right ^^

      Delete
    5. To add to what the anon above said, Kazuma doesn't really get knocked around by the girls, actually he's more prone to teasing or slapping them on the head. It seems that way at first but that's just Aqua being a b*tch before her terrible luck and stupidity shine through. The whole thing kind of tilts the usual harem setup on its head.

      Delete
    6. It's not a case of him getting manipulated or abused. It's more of a Boke/Tskkomi (straight man) situation. Think more Laurel and Hardy.

      Delete
  33. Nooooo Gifting.
    That my favorite, all characters interesting, every characters interactions are funny, most important MC is likeable not too OP and having personality.

    ReplyDelete
  34. I know I am being a leecher that I has always hated, but I would not feel right without getting this out there.

    Please reconsider your decision about putting Gifting on Hiatus. It is one of the most creative series so far with a far much more enjoyable cast than other generic LN. I am, and many others, are interest in what is going to happen next, especially after this volume spoiler. So according to your words
    "You must be truly desperate to come to me for help"

    YES, I am desperate for more of your awesome and consistent translation. So again, please reconsider your decision.

    ReplyDelete
  35. You should really just translate what you feel like translating.

    ReplyDelete
  36. Long time lurker, first time poster. I came here mainly for Gifting and eagerly anticipated every new chapter that you translated. It is a shame you will not be translating it anymore :(.

    Nonetheless take your long needed break.
    Thank you for everything you for all your handwork and good luck for whatever you decide to do in the future.

    ReplyDelete
  37. I really loved gifting but just havent had the time to catch up on it yet because of school work so ikinda feel a bit guilty :P I hope if/when you come back to translating you will pick it up again its an awesome series :)

    ReplyDelete
  38. Hey thanks for all your hard work. You deserve it. Little sad about gifting hiatus but its your call.

    ReplyDelete
  39. Ohno gifting is hiatus iminent

    I like this series alot more than the other project, also you left it on a cliffhanger, the manga is monthly and the translation for that is either late, or slow

    Id had to wait years to get over the cliffhanger
    Surely you wont change your mind?
    Its fun to translate something you like aint it?

    ReplyDelete
  40. Thanks a lot for all your hard work, Sky-san. As your editors, we were glad to help you and be a part of this blog. This is your blog. As your editors, we simply follow your decisions. Go and have a nice rest. We'll just go around editing the site. Also, if you like something, it doesn't matter if it's popular or not, just do it. Honestly, I doubt anyone would complain.

  41. damn i like gifting too well good news about altina btw thanks a lot

  42. Thanks for your translation as always, Sky.

      And thank you for liking my PDFs :)

  43. Should probably start off by saying thanx for all the translation that you've been doing, personally I've been anticipating you taking a break for a while now, since you're a regular translator I kinda hope you won't burn yourself out.

    Out of all the translations I really like Gifting, Knights and Magic coming in next(couldn't get into the others), it's sad to see Gifting on hiatus but so far it isn't permanently dropped I can deal with it.

    Hope you come back soon Sky

    ReplyDelete
  44. People are arseholes and should be ignored for the most part. I'm sad to see you dropping out as I've enjoyed all your translations thus far....the fact that people REALLY give much of a crap about a free translation being slightly off from the original because it's a translation of a translation is sad. If you care that much, translate it your damn self.

    Thanks for all your work Sky...and I'm sad that you're walking away after 6 wonderful months.

  45. QQ Gifting :(

    Thank you for the last 6 months of translations! You should definitely take a well deserved break. Hopefully you can come back soon with a new series!

  48. This is what sad about LN translators and editors, they don't get enough credit or recognition. I've read quite a few LN and the ones that have the most time and effort put in to them are the ones that have very few chapters and updates every month or so. No one wants to put time and effort into something that isn't always going to do well. Sky, you deserve a break and I have no complaints. I understand your view point in the matter and agree but during your break, please think on the matter a little bit more and get back to us as soon as you can. Thank you for the work you've done up til now. If you're reading this right now, thank you for listening to your fans. Take it easy.

    ReplyDelete
  49. First comment here but have read through gifting and I don't understand why people complain about it not being close to the original when at least to me the way you translated it was clear and easy to follow without getting bored. So shame on the leachers who complain when they are receiving a free meal a minimum of 3 times a weak. Also hope you will continue this series someday since it seems you also like this and it is horrible to finish off on such a painful cliff hanger like when a book finishes and it turns out you got to wait a year before the next one comes out to find out what happens. But Sky we all love you here!!!!

    ReplyDelete
  50. no...noo....nooo...noo.. Gifting noonononon

  51. Gifting is life!!!!! Don't do it Sky, don't put life on hiatus!!!! Please, I'm begging you!!! Especially since even you like it!!!
    Anyway, I hope you have a nice break and I hope to see you back whenever you are well rested. Like, will a five minute nap work? I'm already starting to get withdrawal symptoms...
    Lol, anyway, ummm... ... ... Sleep well?

  52. so how much i need to donate for continue gift?

    Have a nice break!

  54. I like gifting it's different from the other novels that get translated.

  55. Sir, thanks for translating gifting, it is one of my favorite ln to read now. also, thanks for the updates on knights and magic!

  56. whattt??? i love gifting !!! actually i visit this blog just so i can read gifting and overlord only !!! waaaaaa

    ReplyDelete
  57. Gifting? Hiatus? Noooooooooooooo!
    We should probably advertise gifting more on other sites.... It is very creatively written and I personally think it will be popular given more publication.
    I hope you will reconsider the hiatus after your break....

    ReplyDelete
  58. Thanks for all the hardwork! Can I ask where will the new Altina
    's chapters be posted?

    ReplyDelete
  59. well good luck and have fun with your break :)

    P.S. just wanted to know will you translate gifting again after your break or?

    ReplyDelete
  60. Thank you for all the translations you've been doing.

    We'll just be here waiting. Also, please reconsider putting Gifting on hiatus.

  64. It's sad to know there'll be no more Gifting (for a while at least). I hope the hiatus won't last long.

    ReplyDelete
  65. Anon again, even if it's sad there'll be no more Gifting I still like the other series as well, let's not think that because this one got the attention in the comment the others are bad or something.

    ReplyDelete
  66. Quote from Sky above:
    "As for Overlord, it is not my project, I am just helping. The current team is Ferro, Sene9ty, Ghoststaker, Namorax, Fate Trooper, Exct G. Remember to credit them, not me."

    I CALL BS
    Sky helps a lot, editing and verifying translations from the first draft to the final draft. In fact, everyone in the team makes huge contributions to the final product, whether it is confirming the meaning of words, cross-referencing with the Korean/Jap raws, rephrasing sentences to make sense in English... I probably have the easiest job as translator: all I do is make sure the Chinese meaning is converted into understandable English so that the rest of the team has a starting point to work on.

    ReplyDelete
  67. Uuugh. I was introduced to this blog for Altina, and stayed for Gifting.

    I sincerely hope you reconsider dropping it after a well deserved break, or at least look for somebody else that can translate it. :(

    Regardless, I really appreciate the work you've done thus far.

    ReplyDelete
  68. I came here reading altina then gifting appeared and make me fall in love with a it.
    so like many people here i will beg you to please continue with the translation of gifting

    2. Ikr.. tbh I came to Sky's blog (a.k.a. this site) just solely for reading Gifting - but still though, I have to admit you wouldn't really find out Gifting through recommendations (if you do, well.. congrats?) out there in the net, much.

      In my case, found Gifting while I was just scrolling over old sites and posts on the topic of recommended novels, and then after quite the long search (a month, not sure that is long), and found someone who suggested Gifting to be translated (and it was not written 'Gifting', it was written as the romaji of the Japanese title - "Kono Subarashii Sekai ni Shukufuku o!!"), no synopsis to it, nor photos of the book cover and any other info out about it other than mentioned as being a genre with comedy. Yeah, so I added the name Gifting to the list of 'potential novels to read' - at that time didn't know it was already translated here.

      After that, collecting all the idk what amount of list of stuff they (the post) recommended, kinda had to google up all of them, prolly read their first volume/chapter and whatnot, and found almost all of them either, well not really interesting (yeah happens a lot with me... kind of rude to the translators, but haters will hate, and sadly it kinda applies to me) or the raws for the series are out (heck, I know this is lame but idk a single damn *beep* about any other language other than English) but no translations or neither of the two above mentioned is the novel's status.

      Well, guess what - I "didn't" really enjoy Gifting much from reading its synopsis I found online, so I kinda put Gifting on a waiting list should I really, really, find no other new novel being interesting to read (I know there are many other nice novels out there worth reading, however tbh, they are nice, but they don't make me addicted reading them, so I kinda leave them untouched for a possible later time in the future). Time flew, got more bored - checked Gifting and found Sky's blog, and now am an addict to it... every Thursday after I'm done with my work, I snap and spam hit ctrl-f5, waiting for Gifting to somehow pop up translated.

      Back to the matter, Gifting is really not known to many of the others out there, and heck - they might not even be much interested in Gifting. Well if I was to say this... me, as a leecher and a long time post and internet lurker at times, I'd say that most of the people here (including me) could've donated for Gifting right away upon the 'news' of the hiatus, but, we don't. Now the reasons to not donating, are like stuff and whatnot and so on. Not kinda forcing people here reading this to donate, but just letting you and others know, is that the amount of people here reading Gifting either gotta be 'very, very' low or the majority of the people here reading Gifting don't donate, or if they do, it's not enough to support everyone (on the basis of getting Gifting translated) whoever reads Gifting here.

      *Then read what I replied with "From Continuation", had some errors while posting this*

      Delete
    3. *From continuation*

      Straight to the point, while I add maybe "1" view to the site, just this one view don't do *beep* unless some weird situation pops out and helps the scene out here. I can't donate cuz, I don't have money up on me, I'm a minor, and on top of that my family hates such sites. Like I have said, people do have their reasons for not donating, reasons being understandable or not, still doesn't make people like me entirely not guilty on the matter. I do understand Sky's situation due to low donations and random anons complaining on something that I would say is stupid, but I can't help be in agony of still visiting this page every Thursday and spam ctrl-f5 or at times when I'm eff'd up bored.

      Bottomline, is that Gifting is not known much out there - and would be really hard for its name to get out there in the net like a deadly contagious virus in a good way, well, if there are reasons.. blame the internet and its society. I really would love Gifting to be up again translated, but guess it ain't happening anytime soon - well, unless someone makes a crazy entrance with crazy ass donations which isn't gonna happen either. I neither can really say Sky's at fault nor can say I'm entirely at fault (I refuse to accept I'm contributing a portion of stuff that have lead to this, though I'm not entirely sure what it is, and I really don't wanna know it either) nor can say that everyone else reading this is entirely at fault or is contributing a problem to the matter.

      Well, R.I.P Gifting, it wasn't long meeting you but when you'll come back to live, I hopefully would be there reading you (well, hope Sky changes the decision on leaving Gifting on a hiatus, CUZ BOY I, or I should say, WE SURE ARE DESPERATE FOR THIS - well, still not at the depths of desperation and despair yet, though).

      PS: This whole damned written thing here is heavily subjective on the topic, please do understand that at least and avoid misunderstanding stuff at a whole new level too (/>_<)/

  72. Enjoy your break. You deserve a rest. I'll be sad to see Gifting be dropped, but it's ultimately your choice.

  73. Take care Sky, sad to hear about the hiatus much, but most importantly enjoy your rest. Hope to see you back again later :) And don't let the whiners get you down.

    ReplyDelete
  74. Been a reader for awhile now. Really thank you for the work you do. I originally came for Overlord and stayed for it and gifting. While Overlord is kind of one of the "MC is op and owns everyone" stories I really like the plot so far. It's pretty much been papa Ainz's problem children heh. Gifting seems more unique with the cast setup. It's not the bland wimpy MC who gets walked all over by the girls, nor is he remotely op. Also the comedy is usually quite consistently hilarious. That seems to be a rarity in LN. I'm kind of amazed that, just by judging from the comments gifting is unpopular on this site. (Not that I'm disagreeing with you by any means) I also would love to see it continue, especially after that cliffhanger. I'm grateful to the whole team for the releases. Really, thank you everyone for the effort you put in. I you enjoy your break Sky, and I hope the hiatus for Gifting isn't a very long one. I'll be doing what I can to spread the word about it in the meantime.

    ReplyDelete
  75. Thank you for great job.
    I came here looking for Overlord, but found smth even more enjoyable (Gifting). If you need rest, so be it. Still I am grateful for your past efforts.

  81. Thank you for your translations so far! Keep up the good work. I don't think anyone not doing it themselves or having tried to do it themselves, can really understand how much work you are doing. So take a well deserved break.

    I started coming here for Altina, and then added Gifted to my reading list as well. It's not the best I've read, but it's good enough that I _really_ want to know what happens next... So if you find a way, either getting someone else to do it, or picking it up again yourself, please consider continuing Gifting. :-)

  84. Thanks for all you have done so far. Gifting is indeed interesting, and not as dark as Overlord, and a good change of pace as well. It saddens me that you have stopped it because it doesn't seem as popular as some of the other titles, but it will definitely have its presence missed.
