Hi there guys, Reigokai here!
So, what you have been waiting…hopefully. The announcement of the new project! —But first! I would like to get some points cleared out before that.
Let me be honest here, I read A LOT of stories before deciding. I read the suggestions and swam on my own at syosetsu.
Let me talk about the latter first. The amount of trash was beyond belief. I am sorry about saying this of others’ creations, but that’s how I felt while I was wasting away reading them all. I felt like this was a futile expedition, and at the same time, felt renewed respect towards the translators that find gems. And I once again understood just how lucky I was when I blind-picked Tsuki ga Michibiku.
Now, I might have missed some gems there, since if I were given only 10 chapters of Tsuki and had to decide if to translate it, let me be honest, I wouldn’t have. So some of them might have become a lot deeper than I expected.
Now, onto the first one, and most likely, the one you cared about the most. Your suggestions.
There were an incredible amount of suggestions, and of that, I am truly grateful. I checked them out and bookmarked some even. But these are the points that made most of them hard to pick:
1. Only source is light novel. I want to steer clear from that area, mainly because of legal issues.
2. The web novel raw had at least 1 year of hiatus. Ironic, I know.
3. Some were already being translated? Uhmm…thanks for adding to my bookmarks.
4. Alphapolis changing their policies. Apparently, alphapolis has now implemented the ‘pay to read’. First few chapters are free, but the next ones, you have to pay. Also, you can’t copy+paste there anymore (and I don’t know how to get around that).
5. And the most important, personal preference 🙂
Now, with all that out of the way, I will announce the new project! *drum roll*
World Reformation activities of the Dark God — Loving humans so much, I reincarnated in one —
At the genesis of the world, the ‘Dark God Entropy’ was defeated in the fight between the five other Gods, and was sealed.
And then, after 1,600 years, the seal of the God of Darkness was released and he is liberated. The God that was now free didn’t really have any special intent for revenge and didn’t have anything to do, so he decided to reincarnate as a human and enjoy the life of a human being.
The human that had obtained the soul of the Dark God and was born was ‘Kuromiya Haine’, a human that -while being human- possesses the powers and memories of the God of Darkness. The strongest existence.
While saving the heroes that fight monsters, and fighting against the other Gods that are trying to rule the humans, he acts in order to make the world a better place.
Yes, this is the new project! I have read 110 chapters of it, and I gotta say, the story has a lot of action, and the interactions between characters is one of my favorite parts of it.
Some may ask, ‘But Reigokai! He is not a Japanese person, and there’s no summoning or that kind of stuff! Aren’t you an Isekai translator? And what about Truck-sama?!’.
Yeah, there’s no Japanese person, and no summoning, but what I am looking for is not a transported MC to an Isekai, it is to transport you to an Isekai.
And whenever we read an Isekai story, Truck-sama runs over us and sends us to an Isekai. He is always by your side, waiting.
Also, special thanks to Raizu for recommending this and many other titles!
A close second was Sayonara Ryuusei Konnichiwa Jinsei.
But this fell in the points 4 and 5. Maybe in the future, when the point 4 is solved! (No, time machine is just a temporary one, and not one that actually solves it)
Estimated time of post will be starting next week.
I hope you guys stick along in this new journey to a new Isekai.
Isekai e Youkoso!
