Krytyk's Status Update

Hello World

It's been a while since there was a post from me, so I decided to take opportunity now - especially that a new OSO volume released today.

I'm still busy with work now, but better times are coming - judging by the work schedule I have. So don't despair, I'll probably drop an OSO release within a week or two. I should have more time in October, so I plan to move on with the story.

In any case, I'll try to get at least one chapter out within the near future, to start with.

PS: OH, I completely forgot! Today, OSO's author has released a first volume of his new novel, in English the title goes "Monster Factory - Demoted Knight Opens up a Monster Ranch" (ーモンスター・ファクトリー ‐左遷騎士が始める魔物牧場物語‐) and appears to be a slice of life story about a knight doing farming/cooking stuffs in a fantasy world. Honestly, I don't have time to even read it, but it might interest you.

PS2: Updated OSO main page with chapter titles, this is all I have time for, for the time being.

——Krytyk

    Is it bad that I keep checking the main page? I'm not talking every couple of days, either. I made this the first site that opens when I pull up Chrome on my phone.

      I recommend subscribing to the site with your email, you'll get one when there's a new blog post.

        I will do that... but I'll still keep checking as well. It's a compulsive thing I do with awesome manga, webcomics and stories that I follow. If nothing else, I hope that the increased traffic helps the creators/translators. :)

    If OSO's author is starting a new novel does that mean OSO is completed/on hiatus or he's just planning to write multiple novels at same time

      OSO is one of the best selling novels for the publisher, it won't end as easily.

      IKR? I think that's a cloak of some kind that Yun's wearing. BTW did you notice the handful of glowing red gems getting ready to be thrown, it just increases the level of awesome once I saw it.

    Man, that pose in the cover art reminds me of Rin. Go spend all your gems on spells, [s]Rin[/s] Yun!

    Hi there, great too see you still active in translating OSO.
    I see the author released new titles, does this means he already finished writing OSO? Or this was just way to take breather before continue writing OSO stories?
    Anyway, thank you for you translations.

      OSO is one of the bestsellers, don't think it'd go down that easily. That aside, there's nothing in the newest volume that would indicate the end coming anytime soon.

      Whether it be in Japan, or in the West, authors work on titles for multiple series concurrently all the time. IIRC, the creator of DenYuuDen worked on 3 different DenYuuDen series concurrently at one point.

        Ah, yes i realise now that some author like to have multiple ideas that cant be inserted in their current works. Its just the author seems to abandon the web version of OSO but frequently updating this new title thats why i ask if he likely plan to end OSO to completely focus on the new titles.

        Anyway i hope hes just having a different ideas that cant he put in OSO and try to realise it before comeback with more OSO stories.

        Don't sweat it. I'm just glad all the repetitive asking when you'll next post a chapter hasn't driven you demented. Dunno if you've seen it, but on Volarenovels there is a CN story called 'This MC is Kickass'. 48 chapters so far, and I'm finding it very funny, especially after the last few (very trying) days of work. Maybe you'll enjoy reading it.

    Is that Yun getting into sorcerer mode??

    Now, glad to hear from you. I was worried that something unspeakable had happened. Please remember to take good rests when you're busy, or it could affect your health.
