    Meh, I'm fine with waiting, but I wish krytyk would at least give us a sign. It's pretty unsettling with little to nothing for almost two months

    1. God Ginrai

      Krytyk has responded to comments. Granted, the last response was just over a month ago.

  2. dante

    You know, 75 days went pretty fast. Doesn`t matter as long as krytik-sama still helathy, we will always support you ;)

    1. God Ginrai

      I don't know if I'd call it "fast", but I'm fine waiting as long as we know Krytyk is still around. Things are looking pretty grim over at Setsuna's site... :<

    Hello, it been a while i'm here...
    Sorry for sudden request for first..
    Krytyk are not planning join with baka tsuki and make your translation readable at baka reader ex..
    its onvinient and easy to use....

    1. Something about Monkeys

      Wow, bro. You're not even trying to hide the fact you're trying to make him look bad, that's not a request at all that's just rude.

      btw can you not use that name, I'd rather not have the name of my favourite RPG character associated with you.

    Say, krytyk,
    Would the updates be continuing in the summer vacation, if you dont have summer work? curious

    1. AoriiAorii

      What is this Summer Vacation you speak of, youngling? =P
      (unless you work as a teacher).

      1. DeEmerald

        Oh yea. You have normal work. But isnt there a time of the year where everyone gets at least one week of vacation?

        1. Delphinus

          Depends where you work, like I work somewhat in line with the automotive industry so when our partners close down for some time, we do too (sometimes).

  6. Jyhnc

    Thank you Krytyk for the great translation!

    Have you considered accepting Donation? Maybe it could help in some way?

  7. Carlbit

    Take your time to settle your troubles and if you are free translate on your own time krytyc.

  8. DeEmerald

    Day 50 after last upload.
    Status. Half dead, deprived of Osoium

    I cant go on.... need... oso... news.... a kind word.... a sign that you are alive... anything........argh, it hurts....

    1. Venti

      To be fair, it's been about a month since krytyk said they'd be busy with work for at least month.

          1. AoriiAorii

            You have nothing else in your life to occupy you? Seriously?
            Krytyk doesn't get paid for TL. He's doing it as a free service. Meaning (1) it's fairly low in the priorities queue and (2) what you're doing here -- being a demanding freeloader -- is just plain rude.

          2. deemerald

            To Aorri:
            I know i know. Sorry about my outbursts, but sometimes you just hate the world so much that you just cant keep it in, and in my case, i go say mean stuff. I'll wait of course, and try to do other things. So thanks for translating for free and such. No really, thanks

          3. God Ginrai


            In his defense, he didn't demand chapters, but any sort of news so he could know what is going on.

            I completely agree with the idea that if someone hasn't released the latest translation, you should find something else to keep you busy. However, I don't particularly see anything wrong with asking for news about what is happening, as long as you aren't being demanding.

      I fight the withdrawal symptoms with a daily 4-koma called "Tomo-chan wa onna no ko". It has almost the full daily dose of fluff an adult needs.

  9. hyaha person

    after a loooooooon time,
    finaly ch 1 get tranlated...

    thankk you! realy thank you

    1. Gaboen

      you can check the "Others" page it have compilation of pdf / epubs of everything translated here

  10. Gaboen

    Hi, i know its not appropriate to ask here coz this was the LN version of the book, but can i ask someone to translate what the author wrote at the latest of OSO web novel update is? is it annoucement of discontinuation of web novel? or something else entirely? thank you if anyone read and reply to this. ^_^

    1. krytykkrytyk Post author

      Nah, to make it short - he doesn't have much time for webnovel so he'll decrease the amount he works on it. Basically, the releases will be different. Smaller chapters released in groups of 5 to 7 at once.

      1. Gaboen

        ah i see, i just can read the head part like he's been busy, and gonna do something in 1 or 2 weeks, i thought hes going to delete the WN so he could focus on LN one. thanks for clearing it up to me :D

      2. hyaha person

        he doesn't have much time for webnovel...
        it's mean the author is bussy.....

        a, adapation... adapatioon eh? ...
        it's not hurt to have some dream .orz

    1. Kirito

      If I'm not mistaken that volume isn't really part of the main story line and just a side Story. It could be that Krytyk figured it wasn't necessary or a problem arised with a bug, but either way you never really miss that much with side stories.

  11. Tufa50

    Give krytyk a break, after translation of Antimagic was done burn out on translationing may be happening. So a temporary slowdown should be expected. Plus life issues can cause school slow down's, work, school, etc. I would think that if got one chapter a 1 month to 1 1/12 months. So just be thankful that at we do have someone that is so very good doing the translation on something that we all can enjoy now and not wait for it to take 3 years to be published.
    However when it published in English please buy at least the PDF to support the author it is only right.

    1. Curiouskat

      I agree and I don't mind the wait, and yes if it becomes available in English I would buy it immediately

  12. DeEmerald

    Dear Krytyk,
    I havent seen you do anything in about two and a half weeks. Are you having a vacation or just resting atm.
    Taku ur time, ill get my amusement elsewhere if needed (slimetime)

        1. Kazumas99

          Anything we can do to help? You do something really amazing so can we be of assistance in some way?

          1. krytykkrytyk Post author

            Nope, not really. Well, unless you know how to manipulate time and give me more of it.

        2. krytykkrytyk Post author

          No clue, honestly. Right now I've got schedule packed with work for... well, at least entire month.

          1. DeEmerald

            About that time thing, i know a guy for it. But there is one little problem. He's currently enjoying your translations in the future, so i can't reach him😞

  13. animefan_austria

    i'm currently rereading oso and found the naming of the oso employee in Volume 2 amiss. is it yoshino kazuhito (according to the last part in chapter 1) or yoshino kazuto (according to the beginning of chapter 2)?

  14. WotrSnek

    Just curious what's the upload schedule for OSO. Just finished reading up the backlog to chapters and wondering how often this gets updated

  15. happinezz001

    the cover for vol 11 seems like yun will be having a new pet soon or is it just me

    1. Doom607

      take a look at some of the older comments because there is alot of people thinking some thing along those same lines also what type of pet do you think that it will be? I think it could be a dragon or a baby grand rock turtle from completeing the inside body dungeon.

      1. Curiouskat

        I am probably so wrong but reading the chapter tittles maybe manticore which would just be really really weird, and dangerous cause then yun has steady supply of poisons as well

        1. Caudyr

          It would actually be a nice change from the standard monsters Yun has, though. I mean, on top of being able to potentially supply poisons as you said, it would also almost certainly be an offensive type monster.

          Ryui and Zakuro are certainly capable of SOME offense...especially Ryui now that he's become an adult...but I'm sure they would still pale in comparison (outside of situations where their abilities are the weakness of their enemy, of course).

          I'm waiting with bated breath for the next chapter(s) myself. =D

          1. Doom607

            If it is a manticore yun will have a 3rd suport/ offensive type as well as a crafting assistant aka unlimited poision for alcamy.
