Volume 9 Afterword



Thanks to everybody who read Volume 9. For some reason, it became another big and heavy volume.


When I first started writing, I asked the editor “Since there’s not much to write for this volume, It should be around 200 pages, right?”. But when I received the printed volume, I wondered “Why is it so thick?”
It’s very strange.


It’s really strange. Where did the all  pages beyond page 200 come from?


But I do want to try finishing a volume that’s around 300 pages long and not 300 pages each for just Part 1 and Part 2.


Either way, I don’t know what happened, but the developments in the next volume will be completely different from the web novel, so please look forward to it. I’m going to say that Volume 10 will be 300 pages long.


Speaking of which, last week, the “Overlord” manga drawn by Fukayama Fugin-sensei went on sale. This week, Volume 9 of the light novel came out, and next week will be the start of the Overlord animation broadcast. These 3 weeks will be full of Overlord.


We produced a great work thanks to the help of everyone working on it. (Especially so-bin sama… He has so much work to do, it makes me tear up everytime I think about it. It’s like… well it’s not like I don’t feel like choking myself on several occasion either.) I hope you all can enjoy the manga, the novel and the anime.


And now for, the usual acknowledgements.


I thank so-bin sama for his amazing illustrations and working on the animation and manga with all his soul.


The designer, Chord Design Studio not only worked on the light novel, but on the Overlord animation’s logo as well. The anime logos are cool and amazing. Murata-sama, who worked hard for drawing out the map. Oosaku-sama and Itou-sama checked and edited, so thank you as well. I thank everybody who worked hard to help me make a thick volume, but to F-da-sama who doesn’t think Overlord is very thick compared to other books he’s in charge of, thank you as well. And to Jun Hani who, as a father, said “children are amazing” at the scene with Marquis Raeven, thank you very much, as always.


Although I can’t fit everyone in here, I thank everyone who took part in not just the novel, but in manga and Overlord animation as well!


And of course, my greatest thanks goes to those readers who have followed all of the volumes.


2015, June, Maruyama Kugane

    1. Ah sory for asking now i knw they meant they were gona broadcast s1 on channels.S2 wont comeout soon i guess.

      Delete
    2. Uhmm perhaps this volume 9 was released when S1 was still airing. And don't get your hopes up it's Madhouse we're talking about so there's probably no season 2.

    3. worry not, s2 won't comeout :D
      just like no game no life and deathnote, ;)

    5. Dude..wasnt deathnote completed? Like all it's content specifically? I think there are other contents about "L" i think its called Re-Birthday or something but the anime finished itself and light died in the end...so season 2 is physically impossible unless they write a new story about it

    1. If it's alright with you (and everyone else here), I'm in the middle of creating PDFs for Vol 2 - 9 (Vol 1 was already made into PDF form by Aquarilas [check the main page comments for their link]).

      That said, it's going to take some time to turn all of the volumes into PDFs. I'll respond back to this comment with a link (and probably post a link to the main page) once I'm done.

      Thank you again, Skythewood translation team! You guys are the best!

  16. Much love and thanks to Skythewood translations for all your hard work on this series, along with the others. A huge shame that Overlord is now dropped, but your hard work has brought lots of attention and love to the author and the series and you guys deserve every praise! Again, thanks so much and all the best!

  17. To the translation team, thankyou thankyou thankyou for all your hard work in translating Overlord until this point. You provided us a fantastic story we otherwise would not have had the privilege to read for many years to come (hate stare at Yen Press). Please take a good break to rest your souls, you guys really deserve it. And I wish you luck (as well as look forward to) for whatever projects you folks will do to replace this gem.

  18. And it's over thanks to Yen Press licensing :(

    Thank you for translating Overlord. Maybe the summaries will turn up in the wiki or some rogue translator will get on with the later volumes when they come out but your efforts made saturdays my favourite weekday.

    1. Yen press have licensed overlord so sky will stop translating it and remove it from their site before volume one hit the shelves.

      So as far as superbly translated overlord goes it's over.

      Yen press is nice and all but it will probably take 5 years for them to get to volume 10.

  34. Thanks for everything, you guys! Haven't been an Overlord fan for long, but ever since the Overlord anime, I've been craving for more of it's awesome story. What you guys did was to satisfy my cravings, and give me great entertainment every weekend. You cemented my fandom of not only the Overlord story, but in general, light novels as a whole. I shall continue to look for more great stories to enjoy as much as I did with Overlord. Now it is my wish is to learn how to read, and speak fluent Japanese, so I can continue reading up-to-date Overlord by ordering online...somehow... Best of luck to the team, with all that you will do! You guys are great! - J

Thanks Skythewood for the amazing hard work you did on it.

  85. A long rant....

    The first time I read it, it was when volume 2 was being translated. I remember that I had read from the google docs back then. Later, I change and began to read in this wonderful blog that had hosted Log horizon (I love it too much!).
    So for this long time that you spent translating, editing, proofreading and supporting leeches, I'll thank you for all of it.

    As it was difficult for me to buy LN in physical and non-physical format (I spent an equivalent of 140 breads just to buy a physical copy of Pandora Hearts), I'm grateful to you for sharing it and letting me read this wonderful story.

    Thank you.

  103. Yen Press waved his arms. In response, a magic circle that was shaped like a dome and roughly ten meters in radius, sprang into existence. He was in the center. The people on his left and right were encompassed by it, but they seemed fine. He probably would not harm his own allies.


    This surreal sight drew everyone’s attention, even if they knew this was an emergency.


    The magic circle glowed a pale white, and translucent symbols appeared across its length and breadth. The sigils changed with kaleidoscopic speed, shifting between runes and letters that nobody had ever seen before.

    Yen Press poured his strength into his hands. With that — the super-tier spell activated.

    “「License!」”

    A black wind blew toward the Anon’s army, which had just finished changing its formation.

    Or rather, there was no wind. Nothing moved, from the weeds growing on the plains, or the hairs on the heads of the Anon’s army.


    There were 70'000 Anons in the left wing of the Skythewood’s army.


    Every single one of them was killed on the spot.

    All living Anons suddenly keeled over and collapsed on the ground.

    Like a puppet with its string cut.


    Like a puppet.


    With its string.

    Cut.

  105. I'm feeling so bitter sweet about this. We've caught up to the novels in Japan, which is awesome, but now there won't be any more translations of it until Yen Press finally decides to translate and publish it all in English. Which they might even never do. Sometimes series get dropped before being fully translated into English. :(
    Anyway, it was a fun ride. Thanks a ton to the whole team who worked on Overlord. It was the main series that I read on this site and one of the series I most looked forward to getting updates for. I'll have to find something new now. Haha

  108. Been here since April waiting for the weekly Saturday releases of Overlord. Now it's over and I feel like my weekends will feel a bit lacking for a while.

    Thank you all so much for this wonderful gift of free translations of one of the best LNs that I know of.

  116. The people behind Skythewood, I thank you from the bottom of my heart for the countless hours of entertainment throughout the months. You always made saturday a day I looked forward to in an otherwise bleak life.

    I hope you all enjoyed it aswell, and I hope to see more of you in the future!

  118. Wow yeah soooo many posts for this last post.... Hope you translators understand how awesome you people and machines are. You've made my day for many days, and I want you to know that I am grateful for all the trouble you went through to share this series with everyone. Sadly this will be the last post, but I will not leave the site, and catch up with Altina chapters. Thank you.

  119. P.S. hope the volumes 1-9 sell well enough that they translate volume 10+, cause they might just translate a few see people aren't buying then drop it but also not allow people to translate it. Like how mangagamer says they'll trans something then leaves it for years then forever. :(.

  126. Thank you all so much to who went through great lengths to translate this LN for us readers. Now that the project's over, I hope for the best for you and Overlord in the coming future.

  127. Thank you guys. I know that you are all skirting around the DMCA, and for that, you have my utmost gratitude. Also, because this is the internet, someone, somewhere, will pick up the slack and continue your efforts. It's either that or we'll be relegated to reading plot summaries in wikis, if those ever get updated.

    It's been a wild ride! When will Vol. 10 release in Japan?

  132. Parting is such sweet sorrow, especially from a place as amazing as this one. These translations were not only readable, but beyond professional....and in a timely manner. Unfortunate as it is, Yen Press will not be nearly as good, just from the fact their Vol. 1 will be released in May 2016...if my predictions are correct, i do not expect to see Vol 10 from them for another 10 years......it has been good, and i will see you all in another 10 years for the latest volume!

  133. i wanted to thank all the people who worked on this project, i was waiting each week for the new chapter and from the comments iv`e read i`m not alone.
    hope if volume 10 will be realesed before the offical liscened you would be able to translate it :)

  137. Yen press takes to freaking long. Even if they started at volume 9 it would be 6 months before volume 10 is released.
