That's all for Overlord this week



Overlord Volume 7 Chapter 3 will be released next week. Delay due to deadly Japanese flu, which is on par with death by truck. We don't want to take the risk.


To keep you entertained, here is a prologue of my original work that I have no plans on continuing. The plot won't make sense, so don't think too hard about it.





Title
I fell asleep at the wheel mysteriously, regain conscious just in time to avoid running someone over, and now i am stuck in an alternate world after running over that world's hero and angering the yandere princess who is in love with him?





Prologue


Calling…


A strong calling from another world… The will of that world is calling…


The souls who are responding to the calling are nearby. And I will be the one to send them over.


The meatbag inside me is tired. With my power, I send him into deep slumber. He will wake after a short while, but that will be all the time I need.


I am in control now. The path to the three souls is clear. Like the others before them, they will be sent to one of the many worlds to create a legend and defeat a great evil. They will arrive with their knowledge intact, and create vast miracles with the powers that would be bestowed onto them.


One of the soul, a female teenage girl seemed to be arguing with a male teenager. Another male teenager is trying to soothe them. It doesn’t matter what trivial things they are quabbling over. Their time in this world is over, and death is upon them.


Out of a sudden, a plump middle aged man rushed out and pushed the teenagers out of the way. Why is he here? He has no idea that he was meddling with the fate of a world with his reckless actions.


He knock the teenagers out of the way, but lose his life in the process, his head smashing into the windscreen and the broken wiper stab him in the eye. The world did not call for him, so only his soul will be send to the other world, leaving his body behind.


The man’s effort changed the fate of two of the teenagers, but the female did not survive. She fall onto the ground awkwardly and a wheel roll over her head. She has gone over to the other world without the other two, which will wreck havoc on the powers to be bestowed on her.


One of the teenager scream. The other stares blankly and mumbled ‘Nana-chan… Truck…’


The calling from the other world is fading. My control wanes and I will rest until I am called for duty once again. Until the next time a sending is required, I will be waiting.

I didn’t expect you to have the powers to affect the sending from your realm. However, you can’t escape your fate… Hitogami.

    1. Anybody know another translator who has vol 7 ch 3? Baka-tsuki already translated but went on hiatus and stopped at ch 2. My saturday is ruined along with probably some people around hundreds. But we don't really care, boohoo to the people who found out ch 3 was delayed...

      Delete
    2. To our other loyal readers, thank you for your patience and understanding. We are indeed working on the upcoming chapters at the moment, it's just that the previous multiple-chapter releases have temporarily caught up to our translating/editing/proofreading progress.

      We know you can't wait to see new chapters! The same goes for us, so hang in there!

  31. Woah woaaahhh. I can't. Whoa.

    If this is really the prologue of MT's sequel, then that was really evil of you to tease this translation and saying you have no plan on continuing. Thanks though, that really hyped me up for the actual work.

    Honestly, someone should make a parody novel about the daily lives of Truck-san, the transdimensional evictor.

  32. I'm not here to read Overlord. I'm here to read comment from butt hurt leecher.


    Not expect MT prologue tho, thank you for translation.

  37. What is this... Is this really the preview of a Mushoku Tensei related work? I haven't heard anything about something like that released, and the author should be busy rewriting the LN. Am I getting trolled hard?

    1. it is.

      And sky isn't translating here.
      It's sifa, rock gollem and co.

    1. Vol. 7 Prologue up until Chapter 2 was already released on Baka-tsuki which Sky is affiliated with so Chapter 3 is supposed to be the one released. There's no logical way it should be delayed. The delay is sketchy and vague so of course there's going to be complaints, it's unavoidable when things like these happen.

    2. You mean the edited versions aren't enough?Or the fact that the translator got ill?

  51. Wait a sec... Truck-san was supposed to have sent the NEET, the JK, and at least one of the ikemen. There were only two victims in that story... so, what, it means Truck-san made a u-turn and ran over the last target? xD how bold!

    ReplyDelete
  52. No problem. Getting a triple release is a hundred times better already.

    Keep safe, translators!

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Releases that were already on baka-tsuki which Sky is a part of so expecting a skip towards Chapter 3 was a logical release. Delay is a little questionable and something not to be shrugged off lightly.

      Delete
    2. Really?You have no right to demand anything....and here that's the reason:
      Quote:"Prologue to Chapter 2 are all unedited versions. The edited and proofread version will be released on Skythewood's blog next week along with chapter 3.

      EDIT: Chapter 3 will most likely be delayed til the week after. The translator in charge got sick. "

      Delete
    3. I'm not demanding, I'm stating and questioning about the situation.

    4. 8 people are supposed to proof-read Silfa's work yet his mistakes are still there. I don't know what they fixed. I can't blame them for slacking off every once in a while though.

    5. @Crash
      You're stating as if you have a right to get new chapters every week where in fact the translation team owes nothing to the readers. That, or you're questioning whether the group releasing multiple chapters over the past few weeks is not good enough. Please have a little patience or get out.

    2. I guess that'd be, "I mysteriously fell asleep at the wheel, regained consciousness just in time to avoid running someone over, and am now stuck in an alternate world for running over that world's hero and angering the Yandere princess in love with him?"
