    If one of the other people whom you mentioned in your post does pick up OSO, will you be communicating that in a community post, or even just in the comments here?

    1. krytyk Post author

      I don't know them and I'm not in contact with them, so I probably won't.

      In fact, I'm kinda questioning their ability and willingness to even translate it, and consider their inquiries as attempts to influence me to translate it.

      1. theroadblockedwriter

        I would like you to know, looking back, it does seem the Volume 1 extras are not loading.

  2. Morgoth

    Thank you for your hard work. Im a huge fan of oso and im sad to see it go but it doesnt seem worth it if it doesnt spark anything for you. Stay safe and healthy

  3. no novel no life

    Krytyk-san,have you ever considering opening a patreon for your translation.with your level of translation i imagine anyone would donate for it.

    1. krytyk Post author

      I considered that, but I don't plan to open one at this point. Will consider again half a year later when I run out of translated content.

      1. Paulthored

        Could you please repost the unfinished volumes...
        So that we (re:I am) are aware of just how much there is out there to look for. Please??

        1. krytyk Post author

          There's no point in cluttering the page. OSO LN has 18 volumes of main novel out, and 3 volumes of Silver Muse.

  4. Grim

    Is this dropped or is Krytyk injured or somthing and how com I can’t find any other translations for OSO

  5. verde

    Anyone know where to buy the raw and krytk sama mind if i pick this project if you already drop it ?

    1. GamingprincessLuna

      Bookwalker jp does it, but good luck using it, to translate. Amazon jp does it as well as paperback or kindle.

    2. frosty

      can you link where you are doing the new translation please? (cannot find it by searching or by novelupdates) loving this series and want to continue reading.

    3. frostydeathknight105

      can you link to the new translation? I want to continue to reading this.

  6. Raghalin

    Since it's almost a year from the last post (Aug 2018), is this stalled / stopped / dropped?

    1. Igneer

      Sure seems like it, shame since i love the series and translation, will never know how it goes on since no one picked it up

  7. Fredom

    Every time this got released it's like a new birthday present, hope we can get some more sometime. I miss yun-chan.

  8. Nahuel

    Just read your post krytyc. Dispice i love this serie and your work if it dosent satisfy you anymore, Just end the volume and pass it to another group. It will be the best for you an the novel readers. Nobody is forcing you and everybody can understan your situation (sorry for my english,its not my first legueage)

  9. Riri

    Did something happen with the translator? Saw a post that he doesn't have motivation for OSO but its been a whike since his last post

      1. Reader001

        Yeah, thats right, Merry Christmas and Happy New Year. Hope your having a good time with friends and family

  10. Jessica Woodson

    Why no update????????????

  11. Kazuto25

    Story is nice and the translation is well done too.
    Volume 11 complete version please!
    (Do your best IRL not to pass out Kryk-san)

  12. Mr1422

    Kryt-san, after re-marathon 1 more time, i've noticed a strange phrase.
    Vol 5 - Chap 1 - 1st sentense: "School after classes were over".
    I'm not a native English speaker but i think its weird.

      1. Mr1422

        adding a "," should improve it ? or change a little, like "at school, after classes were over" ?

    1. Mr1422

      Kryk-san is known for delaying almost 1 year, you should know that.
      Its a shame that no translation groups other than him doing OSO, but on the other hand, the translation quality is guaranteed...So just deal with it and pray for his RL works go smooth so he can have some free time to translate

  13. Alexander

    Aaaaaaaaaaaaahh!!! I wanna know what happens next😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭

  14. Dave

    Just wondering... is this still being translated? Because I really like the story! And so far its been a fun read!

  15. Magnus Chase

    Thanks for the translation work, are you still translating this series or have you dropped it?
    If your still translating this series i'll wait patiently and if you've dropped it then thanks for
    all the hard work you've put in

  16. Herm1t_l1fe

    Thank you for the updates :), I really enjoyed them and I'm looking forward to what happens next

  17. Nahuel

    krytyk great work (as always) on vol 10. Have You think in pass silver Muse to another group?

    1. Tolin

      No disrespect intended, just my opinion here... but I find that far too many groups seem to rely on machine translation. I'd rather see Krytyk get to chapters as he's able with his usual high standards than someone else who may not treat it with the same care and respect. Believe me, I'm eager to see the side stories translated... but I'm personally gonna be patient for it to be done right rather than done quickly.

      That said, I wouldn't complain if Krytyk dropped a volume's worth of translated chapters on us soon. ;)

  18. Herm1t_l1fe

    Thank you for the translations to date, I enjoyed myself reading them, .
    Would it be possible to get an estimate on volume 11?, it doesn't have to be something concrete just a time to look forward to that's all.

    1. krytyk Post author

      Can't really tell, since my work is quite irregular. Sorry. I'll try to find some time to drop a prologue, but don't count on it appearing right away.

  19. KurouDaijuji

    Just wanted to say thank you, not only for finishing Volume 10, but all the earlier work you've done on this series. :D
