Don't ask for release dates

Moonlight Sculptor c16

Chapter 16 out. It seems the author took notice of these translations. He says free translations up to volume 5 is fine. He is strongly against the "pay a pro to translate" idea, and it breaches copyright too. So no more stupid forum posts about that please. Seriously what a wasteful way to spend money. Besides you have no guarantee that the story is any good in the future chapters.

Going through this chapter was torture.It wasn't fun at all. We need proofreaders.

  3. We will continue translating until we find the story intolerable.

    1. Can I ask you which aspects are intolerable?
      Btw thx for the chapter, this is one of the best novels i've ever read, and the translation quality is very good too.

    2. The Legendary Moonlight Sculptor is fine to read as a reader, but it's tiring to read as a proofreader. The narration practically repeats itself and drags on and on. The same message of two LMS paragraphs could be given in one sentence.

      Again, it's not that noticeable when you're a reader, but when you have to proofread it and reread and search through everything, it's pretty irritating to know your work could easily be ten times easier if the author would just state the point quick and direct and move on to the next.

  6. Well, it won't let me reply to Blique, so;
    @Blique: I just put my application in to become a proofer for you guys, and i don't mind mindless editing, so no worries, i'll help out on that front, 'cause this is an awesome series - last time i checked you didn't need any proofers, or i'd already be on it! (leaves the rest of you guys to do other non-tedious things XD like translations!)

  7. Thank you for picking up this project. So far I've read Yureka, 1/2Prince and Sword Art Online and i must confess that The Legendary Moonlight Sculptor is slowly becoming my favourite one.
    I read all first 16 chapters in one sitting and i got addicted lol. I tried to read google translations. It was horrible experience:)I gave up and decided to wait patiently for great translations provided by oddsquad. Thank you once again great job!

  8. If I wasn't already dedicating most of my free time to studying Japanese, I would study Korean just to read this light novel.

    It's too bad the author doesn't seem to have any intention on trying for an English release again :(
