[Not a Chapter] Regarding Tsuki ga Michibiku

Hey guys, Reigokai here!

Many may have already noticed the drought of updates to Tsuki, that’s because the author itself hasn’t updated at all.

But I understand the desperation to get more Tsuki, and I myself want more as well.

That’s why, I am thinking of taking the batton for the extra chapters!!

Now, let me be honest here. I haven’t read the extra chapters yet, so I will get on the way to read them and get on track on how the format in those chapters work. So it will probably take a few before I actually get to releasing those extra chapters.

Give me one week more and you will be seeing the first extra chapter :D.

I am still not sure in what schedule I will be releasing them yet though, so that’s TBA.

Anyways, on a different note, there’s a new discord server for Tsuki ga Michibiku! I am a part of it too (though I am rarely on discord). But if you guys want to join a tsuki ga michi community or just talk about LN and WN in general, feel free to join!

https://discord.gg/a2Ngmht

That’s it from me.

Hope you guys tag along in this small detour journey :D!

      1. Come to think of it, are there any stories where characters from a fantasy world die and reincarnate in our modern world for a shojou high school setting or something?

        Surely it goes both ways?

      2. I assure you that the author is still on earth. I didn’t send her anywhere else. In fact, she just send me a postcard from Japan. It’s such a nice place, eh.

  1. I got excited for a triple release for a second there. I’m still excited, but for a different reason this time. Woo, sidechapter!

    To be honest, I don’t mind the drought that much thanks to the World Reform releases. If anything, people who ask before they read the messages about the author not releasing anything is more annoying.

    Thanks for the chapter, Reigok…Oh, wait.

      1. Who are they again? It’s been way too long. I need to read them again to figure that out. It might also be useful to read the prologue and first few chapters of the main series too, I guess, for the identities of the people on Earth.

  3. Well Reigo-senpai… I think you should do the extras. The drought has many fans agitated and even I had to explain to more than my fair share that you’re caught up to the RAWS. So yeah… many people would appreciate you doing the extras. Not to mention… linking the ones on Light Novel Bastion and the other guy to the main page if you’re not gonna do them from scratch. Still, thanks. I’ll join the discord soon.

  4. Silent reader here.

    I’ve been following your translations of Tsuki since long ago. Your work is awesome, it’s a shame that the author doesn’t keep your pace (I think your pace is too good for many to follow). I’m happy to have more material to read about that world spiced with the flavor of your translation.

    Thank you for your work, you’re the best.

  5. REIGOKAI! (or whatever is your name). Because a number of the chapters have already been translated, you don’t need to do it all. But it would help greatly if you were to provide the links to chapters translated by others, or better yet, to copy-paste those chapters to your own site in here (with their permissions of course).

  7. I put a theory long time ago about the goddess real identity. She is not Selene, Artemis or Aphrodite.
    She is Magic goddess; “Hecate”. I put the argument here:

    *Hecate is the goddess of magic, crossroads, wasteland, the moon, necromancy, and witchcraft.*
    Hecate was associated with borders, city walls, doorways, crossroads and, by extension, with realms outside or beyond the world of the living.
    *Hecate was generally represented as three-formed. Triple Hecate was the goddess of the moon with three forms: Selene the Moon in heaven, Artemis the Huntress on earth, and Persephone the Destroyer in the underworld. She ruled over three kingdoms: the earth, the sea, and the sky..*
    She is very important and related to the Moon. That’s why she interact with Tsukuyomi.

    1. Hmm…I feel like her association with “roads” is kind of out there compared to the traits we’ve seen so far.

      Not to mention she’s supposingly a “wise” goddess and as someone who was once mortal/ugly, she should’ve been more sympathetic to Makoto.

      Still, you do make a couple of good points and the contradictions could easily be the author changing her version of Hecate to suit the story. I’ll keep her in mind as a candidate.

    2. I honestly don’t want her to be Hecate. Just so you know, Hecate, in Greek mythology, is MUCH more powerful than Athena. She is a rival in power to Zeus. Even Zeus acts with absolute respect toward her(which is even more peculiar when you consider that she’s a beautiful woman, and that he apparently never even tried to go for her).
      Here’s a quote from Hesiode’s Theogony(the oldest genesis-like work for Greek mythology):
      “And she conceived and bore Hecate whom Zeus the son of Cronos honored above all. He gave her splendid gifts, to have a share of the earth and the unfruitful sea. She received honor also in starry heaven, and is honored exceedingly by the deathless gods. For to this day, whenever any one of men on earth offers rich sacrifices and prays for favor according to custom, he calls upon Hecate. Great honor comes full easily to him whose prayers the goddess receives favorably, and she bestows wealth upon him; for the power surely is with her. For as many as were born of Earth and Ocean amongst all these she has her due portion. The son of Cronos did her no wrong nor took anything away of all that was her portion among the former Titan gods: but she holds, as the division was at the first from the beginning, privilege both in earth, and in heaven, and in sea.”(Hesiod, Theogony 411–425)

      Actually, you know what? Here’s another quote:
      “Whom she will she greatly aids and advances: she sits by worshipful kings in judgement, and in the assembly whom she will is distinguished among the people. And when men arm themselves for the battle that destroys men, then the goddess is at hand to give victory and grant glory readily to whom she will. Good is she also when men contend at the games, for there too the goddess is with them and profits them: and he who by might and strength gets the victory wins the rich prize easily with joy, and brings glory to his parents. And she is good to stand by horsemen, whom she will: and to those whose business is in the grey discomfortable sea, and who pray to Hecate and the loud-crashing Earth-Shaker, easily the glorious goddess gives great catch, and easily she takes it away as soon as seen, if so she will. She is good in the byre with Hermes to increase the stock. The droves of kine and wide herds of goats and flocks of fleecy sheep, if she will, she increases from a few, or makes many to be less. So, then, albeit her mother’s only child, she is honored amongst all the deathless gods. And the son of Cronos made her a nurse of the young who after that day saw with their eyes the light of all-seeing Dawn. So from the beginning she is a nurse of the young, and these are her honours.”(Hesiod, Theogony 429–452)

      And yes, these came from wikipedia. I own the book, but I really want to type it all down, so I’m happy to have found some of the parts of the Theogony about Hecate through wikipedia.

    3. And so, if the bug goddess ends up being Hecate, then it would make no sense.
      The depicted personality and her aspects are very different from those of that bug.
      And like Psychronia mentioned, the aspect of wisdom of Hecate is completely out of place when it comes to that bug. The bug’s discrimination based on appearance also doesn’t connect with Hecate.

      What we do know about the Bug is that while she has creation magic, she is also not among the strong gods. She’s not among the weakest ones, but she very much seem to be either in the low end of the middle tier, or at most in the middle tier.

      Plus, if she was Hecate, she would then have tons of responsibilities as a goddess on Earth, as she have oversees even more things than Tsukuyomi. She must have a ton of work to do most of time. Why would she be “taking care”(and badly at that) of another world instead of doing her job on Earth? Why would the other gods accept that Hecate drop off the job and go play with another world? It would increase the work they have to do by an enormous amount.

  8. AMAAAAAZING. Was thinking what’s the best way to politely ask if your interested in translating the extra chapters for our Tsuki fix. Thanks in advance. (Warning of extra chapter 4 though (translated by lightnovelbastion). Made me realise how stupid Hyumans can be)

  11. ‘Author Itself’ 😂
    As for the author, I hear he goes MIA pretty frequently.
    Hopefully he is just looking for inspiration or playing games, instead of dropping dead somewhere like some troll comments joked above. 😀
