    Really good story, looking forward to more chapters.

    Maybe this can replace Overlord?

    10. Replace Overlord? What blasphemy is this.

      You have no respect towards Supreme Overlord of Death.

    13. LOL but it is obvious that Tanya is god much more worthy of our prayer than ainz. Because almost everything ainz accomplishes is by
      a miscalculation or accident. And everything tanya plans is accomplished by her extrime gamble with her life and own strength. She is a Nietzschean Übermensch ALL HAIL LOLI SALARIMAN.

    19. Tanya is this novel's MC , you know

      Delete
    20. overlord at this point is too much about self-insert and about a op mc so the story has gone to crap since theres no real threat and anything interesting happening. youjo senki has more potential to be a good story. for overlord to redeem itself several of the side characters would have to actually die or be maimed or something. but when everyone can just be revived back from death easily there isnt really any actual threat so i find it hard to take the story seriously. at this point overlord can still be a good story since it already has more world building and stuff going on then the other generic harem isekais. another thing that kinda pisses me off is all the maids lusting after ainz d not that its inherently bad just that harems in general are shit. luckily the author removed ainz big d so the story doesn't degenerate.overlord is better then most of the other isekais but its not perfect.

      Delete
    21. "another thing that kinda pisses me off is all the maids lusting after ainz d not that its inherently bad just that harems in general are shit"

      That's an exaggeration.

      Delete
    22. Overlord is a story of conquest, idk wtf you're complaining about. There's A LOT of threat when you critically think about the many things left unanswered. I get it though, not your cup of tea, so don't bother reading it anymore. You still will despite what I said though, know why? Because it has you hooked too now stfu.

  2. Just checked in on this site and noticed this new project you have up.
    Interesting topic(despite some fanfics having used an almost similar setup "anger the god person and whatnot")
    After I get done reading a couple new fanfic involving Worm, will read this then :3

  17. for some reason the cover of the odd number book makes her look patriotic, while the even number books makes her look like a lunatic

    Replies
    1. That's probably intentionally done as a way to show the two most common ways people see her.

      Delete
    2. She's probably doing it on purpose, because she had no other choice but to show to others that she's doing her job seriously to gain merits. Like in chapter 1, she 'act' like she's going to stall the enemies untill the reinforcements arrives, 'act' like an ideal soldier because she had no other choice.. Haha if she retreat she's going to be branded as a deserter and get executed on the spot..

  18. I really hoped some one would pick this up! Please make it the successor of Overlord!

  22. Soo basically Overlord's Ainz Ooal Gown mixed with Hitler in a loli body that has OP powers that commands an army? I'm joining in~

  23. I hope the translation of the novel will be going on continuously, it's fucking amazing! Exactly the stuff you want to read about, pure entertainment of highest quality.

    ReplyDelete
  24. Love it so far and hope the translator can continue

    ReplyDelete
  25. Bloody hell, I'll give you serious kudos and praise for the intense effort of translating this beast of a novel.
    I tried translating this once and didn't end well for me as it clashed with my work and school time.

    For doing this for free and even translating it as we speak, I bow down to Ghostaker and wondering if you're single (I'm assuming you're a guy?). You have my respect along with various readers here.

    ReplyDelete
  26. SHE'S BASICALLY HITLER! THAT'S AWESOME.

    ReplyDelete
  27. This novel is one of the best Senki novels I've read. It's a great novel though the author does get a bit too wordy. Its fun to read about the war from the point of view of a nazi loli. Thank you for picking this up.

    ReplyDelete
  28. Loli Hitler? YEAH!!!

    ReplyDelete
  29. What Hitler? He was faschist (radical nacionalist) and tyrant, who believe in Master Race.


    MC is focused on her own efficency and carreer, while going into dangerous situations without better choices.
    Much like C. Cain, who was dragged into "heroic" title by his own bad luck.

    ReplyDelete
  30. I must say... I don't like that look in her eyes... It's like she's deranged or something. Hopefully this would be a good read. Hopefully she wouldn't go Nazi holocaust or whatever, she's (kinda?) too cute for that.

    ReplyDelete
  31. ¿Hitogami alter is Pedo and Nazi? Nice. Good project, i expect more, is really, really good.

  32. Really awesome so far (especially the art).
    Please keep this project up!

  33. Love this, but I heard it's horrible to translate so thanks for you HARD work!

    ReplyDelete
  34. Thank you very much for translating this novel. If I need to choose (as a petty leeeeeecher) between the translation of Gate and Youjo I would choose Youjo.
    Why? Well there is a Anime and a Manga for Gate but not for Youjo.
    So please keep this as a project after Overlord.

    ReplyDelete
  35. You really have no FUCKING idea how long i have been waiting for this!! first overlord and then loli wartales, fuck everything i am marrying you man!!

  36. Damn.... Japanese salary men are quiet OP! 1st was Ainz of Overlord, then Rimuru of Tensei Shitara Sli e Datta Ken and now this one.

  37. This needs to become a full project instead of a teaser.

  39. Thanks for the translations. Man, this story just hits all my standards. It's been a while since I decided to read something now. I am glad I wasn't mistaken. I sincerely hope that this translation will be continued.

  44. After finding out that Overlord was being dropped, i felt as if something was going to be missing from my life. However, once i read the prologue and first chapter of Youjo, i realized that this project can replace the joy that Overlord gave me. I know that many others feel the same way, and because of this I beg you to make Youjo a permanent project

    ReplyDelete
  45. Please don't prioritize Genocide Reality over Youjo (if we can even talk about youjo being a main project). I'm no expert but i have a feeling that
    Youjo is going to be MUCH more interesting...
    Youjo for the win !

  54. Anyone else feels the similarities between this and Daybreak on Hyperion from krytyk's?
    Although the main character has a nearly flipped personality seeing as our loli here is cynical to the point of seeming sociopathic.

    1. I think it will be more "modern" warfare but yup it is very similar. Loli in magic army and she was boy before. TS magic army tags and plot focused on mc mind.

  76. Has anyone asked about picking this translation up? I really enjoyed the bit that I read and am hoping for more, but I understand it's low-priority on this site, so just wondering. Although if someone did pick it up I would personally prefer it to be someone with similar quality standards, definitely not just another casual foreign uni student MTL'ing with little/no editing because he/she likes the culture and uses it to practice English. I believe that it's fine to do that, but I wouldn't consider those sites to be proper translation service sites tbh, more of just a straight-up blog.

  77. Really like the teaser! Hopefully can go perma. Thx for the read!

  78. It's kind of sad that the most promising project is given the least priority. On the other hand though, this looks really hard to translate because of all the military jargons being thrown around.

  103. seriously these updates take entirely too long waiting 1-3 months for a single chapter is retarded. I understand it might be difficult for you to translate but if thats the case don't you think you should let someone else who can handle it do it? I'd honestly rather you drop this and hopefully someone else can pick it up who won't have as many problems trying to translate it.No offense just my opinion.

  104. I honestly hope for the first time that the translator of a series doesn't read the comments as seen from the one above me, people just don't know how to appreciate someone's hard free work. casual impatient people who think they have the right to tell the translator which series to drop or not. tsk no shame at all. i have been here from around the prologue and it has almost become a semi-monthly or monthly ritual for me to check this website, i like this story and enjoy it immensely, and i know for a fact that the quality of the translation is top notch since even a series which would other wise be just a technical jargon is able to be read so smoothly. thank you.
