Hello people, it’s KobatoChanDaiSuki, founder of this group and a fellow translator.
I write this to say that I’ll be taking a break for an undetermined period of time for “Kenkyo, Kenjitsu o motto ni ikite orimasu!”.
I’m not going to abandon it, just that I need a break to restore my mental and motivation.
To explain, let’s first start with a boring story. When the scanlating group “Trinity BAKumA” was going to disband, I talked with them to take the “Gokukoku no Brynhildr”. I translated one chapter but meh, there was others who came in and translated like they’d feel like to. That time, I said nothing and just dropped it after only one.
“Kakegurui”, a gambling manga was done up to chapter 2 by us. Since our members were busy or lazy, it took times. But some hours before we were done with the chapter 3, BAM , Kawa Scan released it before us. I tried to talk with Dinara, leader of Kawa Scan to ask why he did that(stealing our project) and maybe find a consensus. The result was : he/she told me that we were slow(I agree on this), that our translation and editing was no good. I felt terribly enraged. But what could I do? nothing. So I told my group members that we were dropping it.
After that, I started to translate novels as I had time to spend and I still liked translating. I wanted to produce something, to do something. So I translated “Kenkyo, Kenjitsu”. It was a success. People came to read!! People enjoyed reading Kenkyo!
I also loved Kenkyo Kenjitsu and shared it with everyone, I loved it.
But then I became anxious as the chapter 73 to 77 were TLed by Oniichanyamete.I don’t blame him, let’s don’t blame him.
But honestly, I felt somewhat NTRed once again. I totally understand that he came to love Kenkyo as well, how Reika-sama is awesome. I appreciate that he came to love Kenkyo. However, my fragile mental (yes, I have a really low SAN for many various and personal reasons like depression, etc) couldn’t support it, nor my heart. So yes, I may be complaining a bit too much but it can’t be helped.
I’m sorry again, I’ll be and I hope to be back on work for Kenkyo very very soon, I’ll just be on break on kenkyo(but probably going to continue other stuffs…maybe), just for the time my mental strengh and motivation comes back…
P.S : I clearly say, I will be back on it, won’t delete nor drop it.
P.S 2 : I’ll respect the codes of TL’ers even if I get trampled all over. Vive l’Ordre.
