    Hey, I was wondering if there are chinese translations of this LN? It's too good and I want to keep on reading it... unfortunately I am only fluent in Chinese :<

      I'm not aware of any Chinese translation... which is not that surprising since Alice Tale is a web novel, without an LN adaption at that, and it's not one of the super-famous ones, either. Which aren't actually that good if you ask me (they mostly are or turn into trash), but well, w/e. We have our fluff and that's that. Or we will have fluff once I can clear my head.... in 2-3 weeks? No promises, though.

    Thanks for the new novel 9

    I've read your summary, and just to be sure,

    Is this just a fantasy novel (no reincarnation or transported in other world)?

      yes its fantasy but to be exact a fantasy world with game mechanics. like a world with levels, stats, skills, classes and etc. Its not reincarnation and transportation but still the MC is OP and female

        Oki

        Just for curious. What mean "OP" (I'm not english speaker)?

        Pd: I said about reincarnation and transportation because almost all translated webnovels from "http://ncode.syosetu.com/..." have these tags

        The only others exceptions that I know is "Tsuyokute New Saga" and Mahouka

        Pd2: OPEN QUESTION TO EVERYONE

        What is most similar "Alice tales". Reincarnation or transported?

        Reply
        1. 9

          Op means Over-Powered most reincarnated and transported MCs are like that.

          for Alice tale, I think its transportation. because for reincarnation to happen the MC has to die first but it can still still be proven as a reincarnation since who knows he might've died after creating a character, like for what if the MC might have to die to transfer into the other world, like his soul was the one transferred and was given a new body on the other world. since it can also be said the reincarnation can just be said a transportation with the soul to a new body which is usually a new born life but who said it cant also be cute teenage girl you can transfer to.

          Though, for transportation it might be that MC was transferred and also transformed. The main point is that they are able to retain their memories from the other world and both transportation and reincarnation genre has that which makes this case more confusing if you think about it. however, there is a hole that can be filled in the story and its "how and why she was transferred to the other world?" which will probably be explained later in the story. if that can be answered, then of course everything will be explained but at the same time it wasn't explained yet so who knows what really happened. its like Schrödinger's cat , google it, you won't know what is happening in the box unless you open it and at the same time if the box is not opened it can be said that the cat inside is both dead and alive(from what i heard). the same goes for alice in this case, it can be said that she was transported and at the same time reincarnated unless we have reached the part where it will be explain, though for now enjoy the time while the answer is still in the box.

          For those too lazy too read, my answer for now is Both can happened unless its explained, all of it is just my hypothesis or opinion. it can be wrong or correct(and my reference might be totally wrong too TT_TT). and thats is from professor(wanabe) 9.

    well, i got permission from kadi. so while you wait for the new chapters, try and read my translation of Kansutoppu!
    http://9ethtranslations.wordpress.com/kansustoppu/
    Temporary synopsis by my editor (based on the prologue):
    This story follows Ryua, a girl whose village was razed and villagers slaughtered by demons. After escaping the village, Ryua wandered in the mountains until she stumbled upon a dungeon. A 100 floor dungeon, unknown to others. The 100th floor, deep underground, was occupied by the in the guise of a senile old man . After a difficult battle, she found herself boosted to an incredible strength and escaped the dungeon. This follows her adventures afterwards.

    something i was secretly translating. Found it when i was looking for an alternative of alice tale.i already got 3+ chapters out

    Reply
    1. Kadi

      'Tis good. 'Nuff said.

      Not enough said? Alright. I first read this Kansutoppu with rather low expectations. I wanted to see two cute girls flirting with each other and going on a trip. It delivers. There's the "Shujinko Saikyou (Protagonist is the strongest)" tag, and as such I didn't expect much tension from the battles, and well... Ryua delivers. Which usually isn't a good thing. The plot isn't very "tight", either, which is bad for action-based stories. Which sadly is a common problem around Syosetu, or rather with Japanese stories in general, but this is a comparatively light case.
      Anyhow, miraculously the "Shujinko Saikyou" doesn't get in the way of things, either. It's only a means, not the self-insertive, wish-fulfillmental masturbatory end, and Kansutoppu is still a nice, sometimes too nice adventure story. Ryua and Roelle go to all kinds of places, meet all kinds of people with all kinds of problems. And somewhere along the way you notice it's not about Ryua kicking ass and slicing cheese. It's about people. About the choices they make and the consequences it brings, about power and happiness, about humans and being human; and for a hobby author's story, it's pretty good at that. Excellent for Syosetu levels at any rate. And well... when things come together at the end of the first over-arc (translation-wise very, very far in the future)... you're going to shit bricks. I know I did. At least once, and damn me it was a big one. I don't even remember the last time a story, any story, managed to blindside me this nicely.

      (Alice is still fluffier. And tighter. Plot-wise, I mean. Really! Perverts! ... Me!?! ... *sigh* ... *sob?* ... the hell am I writing here. Back to learning.)

        Tried reading it using Krytyk most hated enemy (GT), and from the basic gist of it, it seems the MC reincarnated but already in a grown body?

        Reply
        1. Irina_Akashira

          In this case, maybe isnt a reincarnation-theme novel (like mushoku tensei or Re monster)

          Its more similar ti Alice tale or Log Horizon (suddenly transported in other world, in other body). But usually in transported theme you are in the same body (like Tate yusha or Arifureta)

          In this case, what do you think that is most similar Alice tale and log Horizon? Reicarnation theme or transported them?

          there are keywords that you can use to find things. first you click this " 小説情報 " (upper part option 2nd beside the red words). then you wll see something like this http://ncode.syosetu.com/novelview/infotop/ncode/n6049cc/ ( r15
          ガールズラブ ->yuri(its says girls love but who cares its still yuri)
          残酷描写有 -> basically "dark stuff"(most translated WN has this)
          ファンタジー -> fantasy
          恋愛 -> romance
          性転換 -> gender bender (or sex change or something like that)
          and etc (too lazy to put them here cause they are too many keywords)

          after that go here http://yomou.syosetu.com/search.php?word= (just below you can see a search bar just click it "search" or "検索") after that click this " 詳細検索 " (its in blue text) , after that you can see more search options (basically something like "advance search"). then below the search bar you will see boxes with these text
          [ ] 作品名 -> title
          [ ] あらすじ -> summary/sypnosis (not sure how this works
          [ /] キーワード -> keywords(check this)
          [ ] 作者名 -> author
          then put the keywords on the search bar(be sure that there are space between the words like "R15 ガールズラブ 恋愛 ") then click search
          also if you have difficult navigating just translate the page to english this will make things easier. then after that you will be shown stuff.
          warning: not all of the stuff shown will be accurately the same as the keywords you used be sure to check the keywords of the series before checking them out to be sure that it is the one you are looking for.

            fufufufufu, if you want it then find it. its still a secret cause no one knows where to find it( though i shared it to someone for checking some stuff) but Its somewhere in the net.

          3. guildy

            Meh, found it. A simple Googling is all its needed, I understand why it wasn't released publicly....nevertheless still better than using GT. But man, translating and making people understand is a whole different level. I'll cheer for you, so keep working to translate (this sounds wrong)

          4. Aereus

            It's still rather awkward to search there. Is there a qualifier to have the search bring up results that include all given keywords? I don't see a checkbox, so like I try to search for TSF and keimai for example, but it's just a giant list of both tags instead of a list that has both of them.

        Holy shit, how impatient are you guys? It hasn't even been a month since the Kadi said he was working on it. Plus, I imagine that people are busy this time of year with Finals.

        My guess is that Kadi is working on a batch release for christmas or something...

        Reply
        1. Bubbles

          At this stage I can understnad they are impatient judging by the information we have been given by Kadi, I would say they are being selfish in putting unnecessary pressure on him as we know that in previous months he's been quite ill and he also has his own life to live. For example his trip he got back from on the 30th November but people may not read all the comments. The reason why I say I understand is because when Kadi posted chapter 19 he said that the next release would (kindly) be a double or triple release which (logically) would take double or triple the time to translate.

          So based on his release rate where the first chapter was released on 4th of October and the 19th chapter released on the 14th of November we have been graced with a chapter on an average of every 2.16 days. So assuming he kept his current pace 3 chapters would be done in approximately 6-9 days . Now each part seems to be 7-8 chapters so based on previous parts there could be 4 chapters left in this part and Kadi could have decided to do all four in bulk, extended the time needed to translate and edit but you'd still expect based on his past speed to have finished 4 chapters within 2 weeks.

          It's now been double that time so this reasoning is part of why I say it's getting to the stage where I can understand people's impatience, the other part would be the lack of posts on the main page, some people won't read all the comments they just refresh the main page or this page. Like you point he could be busy with finals which obviously take priority. However he could have written a short post saying that he had to take a break like Solitarytranslations and Unlimitednovelfailures two other translation websites I read.

          The lack of information on the main page is what has caused concern from my perspective, waiting is fine as all work is done by the grace of the translators but the lack of activity is what caused people to worry that it had been dropped compared to the small intervals between the other chapters.

          Obvious criticisms of saying he should have posted would be lack of or low priority of internet access through illness or away from easy internet access (like his trip).

          Sorry to all for this essay and any offence caused, I was simply just trying to write an overview of why I could understand why people were becoming concerned, even if posting their concerns causes unnecessary pressure.

          Lastly thanks must always go to Kadi for bringing us the translation of a great read

          1. Kadi

            Thanks for the support, it's appreciated. In fact, I need 3-4 hours of concentrated work for one chapter, currently, but there was that illness, there was work and there was not wanting to do anything productive in my free time after I was busy... duhhh. Anyway, I won't let Alice Tale die any time soon, I promise. It might take a while, but finishing the first three Arcs at least is my long term goal... so while I may not do much for some whiles, and not respond much to posts during those whiles, let me say this:

            THERE SHALL BE FLUFF!

    well, I've been trying to learn Japanese and how to translate. So i've been looking for a wn similar to alice tale. I needed some kind of goal to keep myself motivated. well, after drawing alice, she just became my favorite character. So i've been desperately looking for similar wn.

      1. Kadi

        I... don't actually remember how I found Alice Tale. There is a thread on Syosetsu over on the animesuki forums, but the people there generally like broken/cheat/overpowered protagonists and don't focus on writing/style/pace and, in short, good stories. I also remember checking out favorites of some authors I like...
        For the adult section of Syosetsu, I remember tag-searching for the weirdest shit I could find. Conclusion: Japanese are very weird. As usual. But I don't think I'll write about those experience in detail here... except for this: I found an excellent story with a VR-trap (RL boy, VR girl) there. But, again, adult material~~ But I might not mind translating it... but Alice Tale, and adult material... but... but... *breaks*

        1. 9

          well, honestly, what i wanted to search is a story that has this ガールズラブ since alice tale has one. I'll probably try this one かんすとっぷ!I kinda wana see OP girls getting harem. I haven't really read it yet but I'll read it as I try to translate it. but if i happen to dislike it I'll drop it. well, actually was curious about that VR-trap thingy, may I have some kind of hint what the title may be?

          Oh, btw i drew alice again, in a santa girl outfit *drools* it hasn't been digitally colored but its colored traditionally.

          oh lastly, I just noticed . . . . . . . . I saw my name and my work here http://ncode.syosetu.com/n6049cc/1/ OTL . It really surprised me. I was happy that shion got a fanart but after scrolling down i just saw my name and a link to my work(the first fanart) *DIGS A VERY DEEP HOLE*. . .uuuuu. how did he find it? TTATT

          2. Kadi

            Well, technically that first illustration one is fanart, too... maybe I phrased it too ambiguously back then. Oh, well.

          3. 9

            really!? I thought it was official. I've been using that image since chapter 1. OTL

            Oh, well, alice is still cute and fluffy, but i really hope i could see the official designs . . . .

            I was hoping to do more fanarts of it like, Yandere, tsundere , chibi, loli ver. , adult ver, santa wear, bunny suit, cat ears and tails, sailor uniform, blazer, bikini, Yukata, White one-piece dress, battle poses, and more cute poses. OTL

          4. Kadi

            Technically, there is no official design. It's no LN, the author has hired no illustrator... He just posted "that" illustration that he got as a gift from a fan. Which makes it "the most official". Still fanart.

          5. 9

            oh well, just gotta hope it turns to an LN soon and since There is no official ones yet might as well draw my image of the other characters as a fanart. then when i draw my image of shion i might draw the b-b-bath scene of alice with shion guhuhuhuhu

          6. Liedral

            There's a second picture of Alice up, this time she has a lightning rod and it seems her equipment is at a basic level? Somehow it feels as if the first picture was Alice with end game armor or something like that...

          7. Kadi

            Nope, no end game equipment. You're right, the other one has the Lightning Rod, but... oh, well. We'll get there. Christmas maybe? I'd like that. Fluffy Christmas...

      1. 9

        well, I want it to turn out good so I'll probably gona spend a few days re-drawing it ( the first fanart was rushed causing me to get exhausted making the work bad).

        I know how you feel, while I was drawing it, I was so into it , I was like "ALICE-TAN!!!! KAWAIII !!MOEEEE" well, the main theme was like to "to show the fluffiness of the fluffiness"

        oh, btw if you have any request I'll be glad to do it.

          Take your time: Fluffiness is never too early or too late, it always comes at the right time.

          Edit: your current draft has Alice with kinda droopy eyes (tareme). They're actually tsurime. Uhh... WOOOOORDS!... but she's cute with tareme, too... AAAARGH *broke*

Ctrl-F5 instead of just F5 to refresh your page, or so, at least in Firefox. I hope.

    I mentioned it before Kadi, but even if not a full TLC, I would recommend getting the chapters proofread before putting them up. You're doing a good job overall, but there are often simple grammatical errors with the English that a proofreader could fix in just a few minutes. Would do that much more of a service to the author that way IMHO.

    Reply
    1. Shiku

      rather than proofreading it before posting we'd love to see it with errors... this makes the translatikns more lively... well, some might have caused misunterstanding however there is kadi's popular grammar capitalist and co. to make it right. and compared to baka-tsuki, so many editors there are just lazy ass-tards waiting the rough translations to come so that they can adv read it. (no offence, i meant no harm) ... here even a normal guest can even make some corrections (well... kadi-san decides what to be fixed though)...

      i know it's offensive comments but they're the truth...

          this makes the guest more active ... I know this sounds ridiculous, but in some point the two party are mutually beneficial(i can't explain the correct wording of it)

          like for example
          a wrong grammar one can help the english comprehension of the guest if he corrected it right

          aaand, after the correction reliazed, the translator can improve his/her gramnar too(sry for bad english)

          annd technically, the guest can also be called proofreader and TLC anyway(in some point)

          can't really explain to you completely, but you get the idea right?

    Is Alice a trap, though?
    From my understanding, traps are:
    -Mentally a female(if willing)/male(if unwilling)
    -Actually of male gender
    -Appearance of a female

    But in this case, Alice is:
    -Mentally a male(at least, for now he insist to be masculine)
    -Actually of female gender(her body is)
    -Appearance of a female

    Reply

      Basically trap is a guy with appearance of a girl, mostly dressing in girl or gender neutral clothes.

      It's referred to as trap because when you get to doing... ehem, you discover a certain addition.

      As such, neither Alice nor Yun from OSO are traps? Well, Yun is a trap in real, in game he's a girl.

          If it's an online persona/roleplay, the term Nekama can be used. It can definitely apply to Yun, but as fore Alice, since it's more like some sort of reincarnation... i dunno

          Gender-bender generally refers to traps, gender-swapper refers to when a man is in girl('s) body and vice versa, and nekama could be considered a sub-category of this.

    Hmm..... after rereading this a few times I've become kinda curious about the attribute progression. Alice starts out with 10 available stats, 0,1,0,4,5, at lvl 14 and after a classup, Shion also only has 10 available stats, 3,1,1,5,0. Do they get additional attributes as they lvl up, something like 1 attribute for every 20 lvls? or is 10 max for the rest of their lives.

    Reply
    1. Shiku

      its already given from the first part, chapter 4 or 5 when Shion shows her stats 3,1,1,5,0 even at level 17 so... my guess its not gonna grow soon. and from what i understand, the attributes are just foundation of their skills and still experience takes it role in this WN

      Reply
      1. Liedral

        Shion's lvl 14 ehehe... she's 17 of age. But I was wondering maybe the attribute will increase at lvl 20/30? or maybe the next classup...

    2. just a passing guy

      i think that the stats aren't gonna get new points maybe they show how them grow ex. level1 0,1,0,4,5 level2 0,2,0,8,10 etc (sorry for the poor english it is not my native language AND i'm a pretty bad writer)

    Krytyk, this project isn't listed under the menu when viewing the website with a mobile device. I would recommend you to add a "Project" link and a "Others" link under the menu for projects (you're working on) / others (projects that you are hosting for others). Beside for the front page announcements, there's no way to reach this page. Also, since you might not always update the menu list for mobile devices, having a link to all the active project list would be a lot of help ^^

    Just want to give a heads-up that a lot of people were having difficulties finding these translations (myself included) because Baka-updates manga lists it as Kadi Translation (though Kadi is translating it). It was only through luck that I found it from a forum post in animesuki through many google searches.

      Kadi translations? Never heard of it... UHM... dunno. Sounds mehhh.

      I don't plan on doing much "publicity work", actively spreading the word or making other people link me. The people who find it, find it, and I'm alright with that. If others want to spread the word (e.g. by making a Baka Updates profile you mentioned), they're free to do that unless it causes trouble for me. One exception: Even before krytyk, I've distanced myself from Baka-Tsuki, so no project page there.

            i think the difference is
            here the TRAP is either Female body + Man soul = liking girls = yuri overload (Alice + GODDESS Yun)
            or Female Body + Soul becoming feminine as story goes = vanilla stuff pure romance
            and usually the thing that make people trauma is MalexMale with male body and the other with Male body but visioned as girl
            so there is difference
            and yeah the Genben here is the high level stuff around other with same tag

      I'm not picking up any webnovels. Not sure if "dislike" would be a good way to put it, the webnovels do tend to be very raw and have a poor flow - though that depends on the author's experience... if I have a choice, I'd rather wait and translate the light novel version of it. It's not like I have nothing to do in meantime too (antimagic, omae wo).

      Kadi is the one who decided to pick up a webnovel, not me. He's a big boy and he doesn't need me to tell him what to do.

        I basically agree with krytyk. Web Novels are often raw, have sub-par flow, sometimes horrible pacing. Wish-fulfillmental train wrecks of story-telling. ...why am I translating a web novel again? Oh, right, my ridiculously overblown ego tells me I can either compensate for much of that in my translation or the qualities of Nekama outshine it in the first place. Or they're simply no issues here. And since I frankly doubt it will get an LN version (not due to lacking quality, though), I just went ahead and did it~~

            Hell no. I'm not going to touch that anime with a 5 feet stick. I'm generally against-anime lately anyway. Lately meaning "for the last 3 years", I think. But I've heard good stuff about the LN, my own early impression substantiates that and the artwork is to die for.

            Ahh, TTnarimasu eh.

            Wish I had caught up to my projects to pick it up ;(. It seems fun.

            But no, my project queue is full... that's why... pester the guy with Yun as his avatar.

            Omg, just watched the first ep. Who do I have to give my soul to have this novel translated?

          Web novels are usually pretty terrible for the reasons you listed, plus just general lack of detail and leaving far far too much to the imagination, but I'm pretty happy with Alice. I actually thought it was a LN while reading it and was planning on hunting down the WN translations.
          Thanks for the translation work!

    Ahh~ the joys of min-maxing...
    Though "realisitically" the first thing a rpg player would have done in his/her situation would be to find a scroll/book to learn the first (attack) spell.
    Like maybe when s/he was in the frieking shop ...

      There is already a pic of Alice if you're looking for one. Unfortunately I don't think the quality is really at profesional level. She's cute though.

    Chill out, guys. It's not like you're bothered by Our Goddess Yun-sama's gender, right?

            so true no one role play these day
            a game character are always a toy, a peon, a slave
            so betwen a male slave or female slave
            of course its female one, any normal guy would done this

            The joy of a waifu, yet its through games,doujins,eroge,anime,manga,light novel, web novel,mmos, cosplay, etc. that comes and goes with a price of who is who actually and denial.

            Sorry but I kind of really hate the way you see it.
            I see the character as myself and no one else.
            I play guy and girl because it don't care about my gender, it kind of fun playing the gender of your character in mmo. It not like anybody care about your gender on the internet.

      Probably not seeing how the mc already has 2 female romance prospects, and as we can see has feelings for girl and the bundles of "dreams" on their chest ;)
      XD
