Yes, a release. Prologue and chapters 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 are out.

OSO_v02_CoverSo yeah, I've edited and released stuff. Now onto what should I write in this post... yup, I'm tired, the pace on this volume might be significantly slower.

Links: Prologue, Chapter 1, Chapter 2, Chapter 3, Chapter 4, Chapter 5

Now, as to comment on some comments and questions.

I will not pick up any other series in foreseeable future. Also, I will not translate OSO's web novel. I do not interest in webnovels as that's a raw project without professional editing, it's so raw it feels still alive... speaking of which, do you know webnovel version of Yun had short hair? ...back to the topic. I interest only in released novels, no matter what form they originally started with. They have the polish onto them that's worth paying for, as opposed to webnovel which can be written and published by anyone, yes, you reader A, you can write anything and publish on syousetsu website, and that'll be called a webnovel, for better or worse.

So yeah, I treat light novels and webnovels as completely different mediums, completely different books. Seeing people add light novel illustrations to webnovel translations seems silly to me, no, IT IS SILLY. The illustrations are a product a professional artist commissioned by a publisher draws for the LIGHT NOVEL. Not for some raw draft, which is so raw it smells of fish. I do not intend to insult webnovel fans, but I think people have to start realizing that webnovels =/= light novels.

My motto is: To read books the way it's supposed to be read. And that includes me too, the humble myself hasn't read the book beyond what I translated up until now.

That's why, do not put spoilers, summaries or google translations in comments. I'll delete them on sight.

Only Sense Online's light novel vol 3 is supposed to come out around 20th October, according to what I've been told, if anyone's curious about it.

PS: If you want to support the author, consider buying the book. Even if you don't want to pay for shipping costs, even purchasing the ebook version of it will support author. In fact, it's cheaper than physical version and the same amount of money goes to the author/publisher as if you purchased a physical version, you can purchase one easily if you have a credit card or paypal.

      The wait is also part of the fun. Wait, and hype yourself for it :p. By the way, I don't wait for the public raws to come out and buy my books, so translation will come right after the release.

    if your after games, violence and suspense (with possibly a little romance)

    go find a copy of 'Ready Player One'. it should satisfy you. i need this OSO to relax and calm down after it kept me up 2 days straight reading it in 1 sitting lol

    I've got a question. I don't if it can be counted as spoiler but is the "camping" event end in volume 2 or does it continue to volume 3 you can just answer yes or no if it is ok with you

      It ends at volume 2, not much of a spoiler since it's kinda obvious considering the time that has already elapsed.

      omg OSO the Anime would probably kill everyone here from noise bleeds and loss of breath. aslong as they use the right artists and plan it properly, it might manage to overshadow the LN

    Prologue and 5 chapters, can't ask for more.

    Last time I said that you might do a whole volume at once, kinda near what I predicted. Patience as Yoda said we must learn patience :D I can't wait for the remaining chapters at all since there are 5 chapter released . Don't work yourself too much please, we might not get any releases' at all if you're not healthy. Thank you!

    Everyone has their own taste, for you it might be boring, for others it is not. Simple as that.

    Antimagic is scheduled to be done, but I still need to gather strength before undertaking the abundant violence and darkness of vol 5. (and 20% more pages...).

    Reading the prologue, I just thought "Thank god there's no players going 'Yun-tan's my waif!" - "No, mine!"- "No, MINE!!!"... there aren't, right? It's such an annoying classic, I almost didn't notice its pleasing absence... OSO really heals the soul. YUN. IS. JUSTICE!

            If you have been reading the raws directly for a long time, without using google translator or any of those stuff and force to use the dictionary for any kanji or characters you don't recognize, ....you would stop caring for minor translation mistake. As long as it make sense, it does not matter lol.

          2. KadiKadi

            And here I thought using google translator made you stop caring about any kind of accuracy, but you say not using it does? Oh, well, w/e.

            For one, if you start translating with that mindset, you've already lost.
            For two, I'm an editor by heart, caring for such mistakes is one of the things I do.
            For three... the mistakes I mentioned did lead to mistaken perception of the game system at least. Thus, the translation as a whole stopped making one consistent sense. Thus, you should agree they should be fixed...?
