Not a Chapter: A New Journey

Hey guys, Reigokai here! 

It has been a while already, but some people are probably already aware… We are almost catching up with the raws of Weakest Mage. 

What does that mean? Obviously, a new journey! 

There were some sly ones who picked up on this and gave a few recommendations of their own. 

Well, this time around, I read a whole lot of stories beforehand and have already decided on one.

The story I have decided to translate is…

*Drum Roll*

—The Darkness was Comfortable for me—! 

I am not the best at pitching out a story, and I would like to avoid giving too much information, so I would like to point out the strongest points of this story in my opinion.

The Main Character’s growth is really great to watch, his gradual opening up with the people around him, and most of all this is a story where the MC’s actions are broadcasted to all the people on Earth, so it gives a different type of flavor while providing what’s my favorite part of the story which is the forum discussions, or Bulletin Boards. 

It starts like a dark fantasy, but I wouldn’t really call it one. 

For the ones wondering if it is a harem or not, I can’t tell for certain. Most are, and I think this one will be as well. Don’t take my word for granted though as I don’t really mind whichever way it rolls. 

Btw, there’s already a translation with 5 chapters, so if you want to check the first few chapters, you can go ahead. Just a heads up; there are several parts that are mistranslated. This is not me insulting anyone here, this story is pretty difficult to translate. Especially the Bulletin Board that has a lot of netspeak. So if possible, I would like you all to read my translation of it as well, even if you do intend to read those 5 chapters ahead of time since you might miss some details.

I myself will be translating everything from the very beginning, even the synopsis. I do prefer doing it this way.

So, I will leave the synopsis here, but if you don’t want to be “spoiled” for the first 4 chapters, maybe hold off on reading the synopsis a bit till you get there?


“I will have the 1,000 people I have chosen go to a parallel world.”

Chaos spread once those words of God were displayed to the whole world.

Kurose Hikaru, whose childhood friend had been chosen, was killed together with her on the same day she was supposed to be transferred. However, for some reason, Hikaru didn’t die and, even though he wasn’t chosen at first, he ended up as one of the [Otherworlders that will have all their actions live broadcasted to Earth].

Transferred without any preparations at all to that accursed land, he faced threats innumerable times and somehow managed to survive with his Gift, the Dark Spirit Abilities. 

“I must not die. I am sure the people on Earth are all rooting for me after all…” 

This is the story of a young boy who is tossed about by the gazes of the viewers, yet eventually manages to raise his head and walk forward. 

And there it is! A new journey ahead of us! 

I really would like to thank all the great support, patreons, and comments! Seeing this community grow over the years really does put a smile on my face. 

I will be releasing one chapter every day for the first 4 chapters! 

Hope to see you in the next Isekai!

    1. I’m more than happy enough that you have chosen a new novel to translate, knowing you and your previous choices I’m pretty sure it’s going to be awesome.
      I was actually thinking that maybe you would translate the extra stories of tsuki ga michibiku but you will hear no complaints from me.

      1. Same here, I’m sure this will be another story to enjoy. Just that I’m a little disappointed that the Makoto protagonist name just got combo break lol.

  1. sounds like those korean modern fantasies like Omniscient Reader where the gods put people through some weird death games and give them powers for funsies

  2. Looking forward to it, but not so much losing my fix of zero believers goddess… Oh well, what can you do? I trust you can do a good job picking a story.

    Thanks for everything!

  3. Thanks! Nepu!

  7. Thanks uhm for the new chapter? Sad to say that we’re not gonna see our airhead gigolo and for a few months or maybe years. Looking forward to your new project and here’s hoping that this is a harem ahahah. Cheers!!

  8. mmm new dr@g … i say isekai

    It looks interesting, although I feel that nothing could surpass “The Weakest Magician” his development is magnificent.
    But we’ll see.

  9. The whole spectator idea sounds kinda haHAA but a translator should always translate whatever they want to, so good luck with it.

  10. Thanks for this new adventure!
    Wordpress didn’t notify me at all about this post (or the next one), so I came here a bit at random, but… What a nice surprise!!!

  11. Thanks for the New journey.
