    1. Ah..and I know part of the story afterwords is by reading the gibberish of google translation from the Japanese site. Though most of it really dun make sense.

    2. There are significant changes made when they released it as a light novel, with events being shuffled around.

      They probably moved the meeting with the King over to volume 2.

    5. Re-incarnated heroes
      Shiro no Koukoku Monogatari =reincarnated into techno magical world chosen to be a king
      Slime tensei = reincarnated as slime
      Re-monster = reincarnated as a goblin
      Douluo Dalu= reincarnated to recreate the former world tang sect
      Gun-Ota ga Mahou Sekai= gun maniac reincarnated in magical world but have little disposition to magic. Made guns to compensate his lack of magic. Pay attention to the warning of translator at the beginning.
      Yuusha Party no Kawaii ko ga ita no de, Kokuhaku Shite Mita = reincarnated to a mini boss fallen insanely in love with the cleric.

    6. The oldest re-incarnation that I know is "please save my earth" although it is opposite direction. Aliens where reborn as humans.

    8. Actually worse than Mushoku Tensei. Knight's and Magic has a jittery story flow and the characters aren't getting fleshed out so well. (Similar to the disappointment I felt when I began reading Ark after 20 volumes of LMS.)

    3. quick question. whats the difference between a light novel and a web novel?

      Delete
    4. Web Novel is literally that. A novel written on the internet.

      Light Novel is a commercially released novel.

      Sometimes a publisher becomes interested in a web novel, makes a deal with the writer, and releases it as a light novel, usually with changes/edits.

      Delete
    5. usually if there are both versions of a story, the light novel has been revised and will likely contain new story / characters and may differ dramatically from the web novel (an example is the Overlord series, Albedo is present in the light novel but not the web novel)

    1. does that mean it's dropped? or does it mean that he is willing to translate it but is also willing to give it up if someone else is going to translate it?

      Delete
    2. It's on the release schedule, expect a new chapter Wednesday at *Release time is always 11pm of clock below (GMT +8)
      Also, I don't think it was dropped so much as was given low priority. People DO have lives and all. And other people, being nagging leechers must have annoyed the translator to the point where saying "feel free to find someone to take over" just to them off their backs sounded like a good idea.

      Delete
    3. Its not low priority.

      Sky translates from Chinese -> English.

      The Chinese version of K&M is only at Vol 1. It took 8 months for vol 2 to get released.

      People kept asking him why isn't he translating more, because its up to Vol 5 in Japanese, or the web novels.

      Despite the fact that his site clearly states that he translates Chinese -> English, and the previous red text here stating he'll translate more when the Chinese version comes out.

      Now imagine literally months of people asking why he isn't translating more K&M.

      The people who cannot read or comprehend this boggles the mind.

      Delete
    4. I bet there's more to come, as in "When is the next translation coming out" or "why don't you translate the wn".... something will arise I'm sure.

      I'm surprised (and quite thankful) he hasn't gotten mad yet.

      Perhaps sky should use a size 72 bright red font reiterating the fact that he only does c->e translations and that there's only been two volumes in chinese published... but people probably still won't read.

      Now that that's been said, let's all wait PATIENTLY - by keeping the page on auto refresh and never looking away from the screen until the next chapter comes out :D

      Delete
    5. I wonder how much context is lost when translating from a translation. (In fairness, I'm sure it's still significantly better than machine translations.)

      Delete
  46. YEAHHHH. ITS ONNN NOW!!!

    ReplyDelete
  47. I don't read this but still thanks for Translating Kami-Sama! :D

    ReplyDelete
  48. did K&M released chinese version volume 2? i remember sky said he can only translate chinese to english.

    ReplyDelete
  49. Please remember if you get impaitent and read the non chinese version, you will get quite a different story, so if you do go to the other translation please read it from the start again to get full enjoyment whiles waiting for this version.

    2. I encountered a problem. When I try to view the file in iBooks, the iPad says "Failure to Load because Resource is missing" and then crashes. I have no idea what that means, but I imagine some tag or something is being screwy. Also the following three images don't load either.

      Also, did you do something to make a cover image appear? For some reason, iBooks doesn't always generate a cover thumbnail image even when I think there is one.

    1. He's translating it from the Chinese novels remember? Pretty sure that only the first two novels have been released in Chinese so far, hence he can't really translate the others yet.

      If you want to read more in English sooner someone will need to pick up translating it from Japanese. The web novel is somewhere in volume 6 currently.

    Been awhile since I post something here..
    So like, after comparing the Chinese version (basically the one being translated here) it seems there is no difference with the Web Novel.
    Few months ago, I was thinking something like "Hey, I'll just translate one chapter from web novel..", but sadly, RL got in the way, and somehow I got no drive to TL anymore....so.......I only TL part of the chapter after Chapter 18. When the Silver Phoenix spread its wings..
