Sadly Not a Chapter

Sorry to disappoint you guys but this is not a chapter, if you still feel like it, you can read on as this announcement would count as somewhat important I guess.

There is no value in beating around the bush, so I will say it in plain and simple terms. I no longer have the energy to do one chapter a day of Xian Ni anymore. Thinking back, I think this was more or less inevitable (as some of you may have feared). I have been more or less forcing myself these past few days.

So, I am changing my approach towards chapter and will be releasing them “as and when ready” for now. I know that I would be going back on my guarantee of one chapter a day, but to be frank, if I keep forcing myself to do a chapter a day, there would only be two possible outcomes: (1) Me losing my sanity, or (2) Me quitting translating altogether (Yes I exaggerate but you get the point). I know that waiting for a chapter a day is a pain already, but with the increased length, every Xian Ni chapter takes an immense amount of time, and an immense amount of mental fortitude to keep marching on forward. I think my post yesterday, was more or less an SOS I guess.

Dissatisfied? Unhappy? Apprehensive? Don’t be because the worst is yet to come, because I can only see my free time getting shorter and shorter in the near future. The only thing that I can do is hope for the sake of you all, that at that time there is someone to replace me (Like Flowerbridge did during my previous hiatus). I believe this hiatus is still 15-20 days away from now, but the hiatus itself could extend to 1.5 months or so. I would request Flowerbridge to do some Xian Ni chapters on the side, but I don’t want to pressure him too much, since I know first hand the frustrations of doing the chapter.

So, I thank you guys for being understanding (I Hope), remember that Xian Ni is still my sole project, just that sinking 95% of my free time every day into translating can get burdensome real fast. I don’t know what else I can say but, Sorry.

TLDR: I am no longer going to release a chapter a day, the time between the chapters is going to depend on variety of factors, but I am shifting to as and when ready approach. Also, I could possibly take a long hiatus but it is still 15-20 days away, till that time I would try to get out as many chapters as I can.

P.S. Don’t worry the recruitment is still on. I will be mulling over them during the weekend. But the above decision stays for now. Also, If you feel like bearing with my eccentricities is becoming a pain, then…..

    *sniff* *sniff* thanks for all your hard work!

  2. Kerambit May 22, 2015 / 7:33 pm

    It’s all good, I don’t think anyone will have a problem with that.

  3. fff May 22, 2015 / 7:34 pm

    I am just glad that you translate Xian Ni.

    Take your time.

  4. lin May 22, 2015 / 7:36 pm

    its fine, i guess…

  5. iamsleepless May 22, 2015 / 7:36 pm

    thank you for all your hard work
    hope you get some good tl and ed into the group

  6. nicolasprothero May 22, 2015 / 7:37 pm

    Take care of yourself

  7. Ariehon May 22, 2015 / 7:37 pm

    😦 I am very sad but in hindsight, I guess it was inevitable. Take care and thanks as always.

  8. TheFalconHuntsatMidnight May 22, 2015 / 7:38 pm

    If the newer chapters are longer than previous ones you could always split the new ones into parts which would reduce some of the burden on you, while still giving regular chapters.

    We all appreciate the hard work you do though so if you need a break take one – no need to burn yourself out.

  9. pristineallyn May 22, 2015 / 7:39 pm

    I am relieved because you didn’t say: “I can’t translate Xian Ni anymore”… whew! Thank you!

  10. Dash323 May 22, 2015 / 7:39 pm

    Your mental and physical health are priority #1! As sad as I am about this, i can only hope that you will be able to continue this and not drop it in its entirety. There’s so much i don’t understand fully about the series that i have been winging it lately so this might be a blessing in disguise as i can now go back and read it all over again in its entirety to really analyze this world you have so gladly introduced me to Thanks for everything and keep up the great work.

  11. Varler May 22, 2015 / 7:39 pm

    We totally get it. Although we’re sad to have less chapters, almost all of us are just leechers who enjoy your and other translators chapters for free. We have to right to complain, and those that do complain shouldn’t be allowed to read these, in my opinion.
    This isn’t your job, it’s a hobby that we get to enjoy sharing with you. But if it gets so tenuous and demanding that you’re not enjoying it, it’s perfectly normal and healthy to take a step back. Not to mention that life itself isn’t static, and even if we don’t want it too, life will move on and leave us behind. Stuff like jobs, school, family, military service, etc. are all unavoidable and sometimes take time to deal with.
    Thanks for being so open and giving us these updates, I hope that you will do well, and that someone else will be able to pick up Xian Ni once you do have to go on your hiatus. Best of luck to you!

  12. sagamaster May 22, 2015 / 7:40 pm

    That’s OK mate. There is no need to chase that deadline 1 chapter a day. It’s exhausting job. I just hope your team will solve the problem. Thanks for the hard work.

  13. Wytchlord May 22, 2015 / 7:41 pm

    That’s understandable. I more or less already saw that coming with the longer length of the chapters.

  14. Translate Projects May 22, 2015 / 7:41 pm

    Sadly I will miss the chapter a day; However I understand the troubles that it brings(i’ve been trying to learn Chinese myself to work on my own projects, but it is quite difficult) have a nice break I hope you can gain the assistance of other tl’ers editors to continue releasing more xian ni on a regular basis.
    Enjoy you break and have a nice day.

  15. Hendricksen-sama May 22, 2015 / 7:42 pm

    Whew. When I read the first stanza, I thought you’d drop it. It okay if we have to wait longer, because at least we still have something to look forward to. And of course it is not right for us, the leechers, to be dissatisfied because we are only getting something from you, and we don’t even give back something of importance ( except for money, lel ). As the saying goes ” The Lion does not concern himself of the opinions of the sheep “

  16. Ouail Bendidi May 22, 2015 / 7:42 pm

    take it easy man , you are the translator and the one making the effort , so your words are rulles, so take your time cause as long as xian ni will still be posted someday i’m happy , anyway i still have roughly 70 years in my life so i can wait ^^

  17. agila0212 May 22, 2015 / 7:43 pm

    Sorry to hear this 😦 but I can understand since the chapter is getting longer. I’m just dreading about the “haitus” part thought….. Have you recruited anyone yet in the Translation Group? or anyone contacted you?

  18. Dark invader May 22, 2015 / 7:43 pm

    PLS ASK GRAVITY TRANSLATION IF THEY CAN TRANSLATE FOR YOU! 🙂

  19. Hot May 22, 2015 / 7:45 pm

    Thank you for your hard work. Take some rest and its fine if no new releases everyday. All good

  20. Vehnriel May 22, 2015 / 7:46 pm

    Thanks for your work up to now

  21. Иса May 22, 2015 / 7:49 pm

    Спасибо!!! За главы!

  22. nizinika May 22, 2015 / 7:51 pm

    Its all good as long as there is someone translating. And why not do it like this: if a chapter is around 2000 words then it takes one day, if around 4000 2 days and so on?

    • zaxx7 May 22, 2015 / 8:03 pm

      Yes he can seperatt chapters into 2-3 part. some chapters are 6000 words

  23. RobotLove May 22, 2015 / 7:52 pm

    Man just when its getting good….

  24. Basty May 22, 2015 / 7:52 pm

    sadly its too sudden and still have yet making alliance for xian ni

  25. RobotLove May 22, 2015 / 7:53 pm

    I hope you get a team going to make things easier for you

  26. timeroc May 22, 2015 / 7:55 pm

    Have a nice break

  27. Ahrael May 22, 2015 / 7:59 pm

    Dont worry about it. Even thou we all would like to see at least a chpater a day i think all here understands that its hard to translate and that ur taking ur free time to do that. So just take it easy and translate when u feel like it. Hopefuly some new ppl will join you to translate so it wont be that much of a burden for you.

  28. Kristen May 22, 2015 / 8:01 pm

    Void, I don’t think there is any other 1-man translation team on the internet who releases 1 chapter of a light novel per day. In other words, there is no one like you, and what you have done for us so far is not only a rare gift, but also an INCREDIBLE amount of work.

    Of course the impatient side of me wants new chapters everyday, but the realistic side knows that we have been incredibly lucky that you have been willing to do as much work as fast as you have. We should be thanking you, not the other way around.

    Take as much time as you need. As long as you don’t drop Xian Ni (the horror!) we will all love you just the same.
    Thanks.

  29. ReaderKei May 22, 2015 / 8:04 pm

    thanks for the hard, and i don’t mind not having 1 chapter a days as long as the translation is going on and not drop. so have a good rest

  30. Ilar May 22, 2015 / 8:17 pm

    I’ll miss the daily chapter posts, but its understandable. Take care.

  31. Fönsterkill May 22, 2015 / 8:18 pm

    Thank you for your hard work! Please don’t force yourself and take your time. Take a few days off or do whatever want, we’ll wait for you!

  32. Jack May 22, 2015 / 8:20 pm

    I only read free trade translations.
    Please enjoy your life and slow down. I may have to go on reading hiatus…

  33. bubuls May 22, 2015 / 8:24 pm

    Thanks for your hard work so far , I think Xian Ni must be the hardest “modern wuxia/xianxa to translate” even for manual translator , so the burden is really heavy for MTLs.
    I hope you could find people to help , fortunately a really good translator took up I Shall Seal the Heavens by Ergen ( Deathblade at wuxiaworld) , and given the similarity between the two novel I think it would be a good “substitute” for those in need for their daily Xian Ni chapter.
    Maybe you could even get some help from there as the two novels take place in the same world.
    I’m saying all this because as a huge Ergen’s fan I hope too see both of those novels translated , and ” I Shall Seal the Heavens” could need a bit of your help to be spread among Xian Ni’s fans by maybe relaying the release from deathblade , it would be just as good as a Xian Ni chapter I’m sure for everyone :D.

  34. Sour123 May 22, 2015 / 8:41 pm

    I’m hurt.
    But do what you must, we’ve stuck to you this far

  35. ravelord May 22, 2015 / 8:48 pm

    “Born to feel”, yeah, i imagine how tough it is …

  36. Ragnet May 22, 2015 / 8:58 pm

    When u go on hiatus give us a heads up so that I wont bother you in your period of rest.

  37. LordCorwin May 22, 2015 / 9:02 pm

    I won’t lie and say it doesn’t suck, honestly was hoping you were going to say you suddenly became a godly level translator and would now be releasing 3 Xian Ni chapters a day as well as 4 chapters a weekend of a side project, but I guess that’s not happening.

    Hope the extra time allows you to relax some regain your original enthusiasm and fervor for the project and also hope you manage to find someone to fill in during your absence.

    I will ask this one thing of you before you take the aforementioned hiatus however, please, for the love of all that is holy to the leechers, make list of words and what they should be translated to for whomever takes up the torch while you are gain in order to maintain a level of consistency. I don’t really want to be sitting there scratching my head trying to figure out the differences in TL interpretations.

    Thank you for all your hard work up to this point.

  38. kirindas May 22, 2015 / 9:14 pm

    Thanks for the hard work! Make sure to rest up properly so you don’t go crazy.

  39. Yurinnurai May 22, 2015 / 9:20 pm

    You definitely deserve a break, slow down, and even take some time off. There aren’t many translators as dedicated as you by far when attempting to release 1 chapter a day. Don’t spoil your readers too much cause it could degrade your health.

  40. Van Kusanagi May 22, 2015 / 9:21 pm

    As a person placing myself in your shoes i get it what you said before. But you mentioned a hiatus of 15 months, i don’t understand that. And if you are taking a break this big why not give up on Xian ni altogether after finding someone trustworthy who can take forward this legacy (or whatever you wanna call it). I am angry, very angry because now i have to go find another purpose in my life (Just kidding!! but yeah it was the most essential part of my daily routine. I read it before brushing my teeths. Hope you understand!). Anyway, best of luck. Thanks for all you’ve done and I’ll be even more thankful if you can get someone on translating Xian ni.

    • jacobpaige May 22, 2015 / 9:23 pm

      1.5 months, a.k.a.: a month and a half or 6 weeks give or take.

  41. jacobpaige May 22, 2015 / 9:22 pm

    Well, if you still want to release something every day, you might consider just releasing the chapters in parts. That way, you could go back to releasing the same amount of content you used to (in terms of word count), without sacrificing more of your free time than you’re willing to.

  42. Van Kusanagi May 22, 2015 / 9:24 pm

    And frankly, the way flower has been acting I don’t think he is going to do anything at all. He seems kinda obsessed over his MGA (Well that’s his main thing![Completely besides the point])

  43. bullshit May 22, 2015 / 9:29 pm

  44. osealey May 22, 2015 / 9:31 pm

    Saw this coming from a mile away. Not terribly surprised to be honest. Ahh well, there goes my daily dose of Xian Ni. Thanks for all the chapters so far, but you gotta do what you gotta do.

  45. Avarrencus May 22, 2015 / 9:44 pm

    Why do ancient people create such difficult language? lol
    I think it’s time to unify the world and make a “one true language”
    Thanks for all the chapter and all the hardwork that you’ve been pouring just quench our thirst
    and we will miss the daily dose of Xian Ni, huhuhu

  46. Felna May 22, 2015 / 9:47 pm

    ARGHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH
    IM BLEEDING YEA RIGHT
    SLOWLY BUT STEADY!

    Allright Void take ur time! go grap some people and tell them to translate!
    someday u sit in ur chair and all u gotta do is tell them when to release a chapter!
    >.<

  48. Feigned Haraguroness May 22, 2015 / 10:01 pm

    Take your time we all appreciate what you’ve done for us.
    Just one thing though could you update the status make it read on hiatus, working on it, leeching, or till date
    That way we’ll stay informed about when your here, people will still want to talk you even if you’re not translating after all we’ve gone through with you that should be a given
    On hiatus meaning absent
    Working on it meaning translating cause percentages tend to be best when it takes multiple days
    Leeching meaning your just reading like the rest of us
    Till date if you know when you’ll be translating and feel like telling us

  49. acouvis May 22, 2015 / 10:06 pm

    If anyone is seriously complaining about it, just send them to the “Offended” page of Encyclopedia Dramatica… (PS I know how to hotlink in wordpress but I’m not hotlinking here just to avoid making people who aren’t complaining go there =p ).

    Void i am very sad to hear the news that u wer stop translating xian ni,…..
    for me 129 chapter is enough, so i ask no more…….by the thank u& farewell

  52. Nahtaivel May 22, 2015 / 11:15 pm

    It’s fine.
    Honestly translating one chap a day when you’re not a native speaker seemed crazy to me.
    Other solo MTLer don’t do it.
    So taking longer is no problem.
    Enjoy your break !

  53. PhanKai May 22, 2015 / 11:33 pm

    Ah…….This is something I(We) already expected but hoped will never come! Thank you for your hard work and please don’t worry and just continue at your own preferred pace. I just hope that you don’t gain insights on the worst paths in the LAWS of Novel Translations which is…………….”The Profound Truth of HIATUS” or “The Profound Truth of Dropped Projects!”

  54. sosend May 22, 2015 / 11:41 pm

    I know why you take alot time for translate because to be truth the author make xian ni chapter more and more boring with only few word action and 90% useless explanation for me, usually i skipp that

  55. ibunnyrabbit May 22, 2015 / 11:50 pm

    Thanks for all your hard work and effort Void! Although I honestly don’t know whats more pitiy your exhaustion or the addicts that constantly press F5/refresh lmao.

  56. Bot-10 May 22, 2015 / 11:50 pm

    Man, this is really hard to take in, I got to hooked to the chapter a day, might go through some withdrawal, but all will be well, Thanks again for sharing your passion, I’m glad you were able to realized when your passion had turned into a dreadful chore. Do what you think is right for your personal well being. I believe everyone understand this and would like to thank you for all the hard work that you had put in to introduce some of us to Xian Ni.

  57. EtherealToxin May 22, 2015 / 11:55 pm

    Loving the series and ‘your’ translations, but as a fellow person to a fellow person: your opinion and situation is completely understandable, especially when it is just a hobby to you.

    As heartless as it may sound, I hope you get depressed over your hiatus and step out of the hiatus with strong vigor to do a bunch more once able again, especially if the total number of chapters for Xian Ni really is in the thousands. Dropping a project when it is nearing its end because it is getting sucky, or YOU read ahead to the end and were like ‘meh’ to the shared translation variety, is, unfortunately, understandable, but when there are still thousands of chapters to go then it is just sloth in effect, which is also, unfortunately, understandable, but… BUT… so sad for us *-_-* *cries*
    …. oh look a butterfly! … /o/… \o\… /o/ …
    $hit happens.
    Please continue when able.
    Please cheer up and be non-lazy[ in regards to translations], for ‘our’ enjoyment.

  58. Xian Ni May 22, 2015 / 11:56 pm

    for the good service you for the community out of your own time, for that you deserve our gratitude

    do one chapter a week, a month, or even a year if you want, regardless thanks for all those releases you have given us, better then no chapters 😀

    and yes the releases were getting very long, specially 129 I was like “wuuuhaaat? but then yay!” lol couldn’t help but think how long it must’ve taken you to do almost 25k words or is it more?

    • bubuls May 23, 2015 / 12:14 am

      Chapter 129 is 6k500 signs in chn , so as long as 127th and 128th chaps together ^^, but xian ni is really hard to translate , other popular novel like MGA , ATG , DD , SYWZ etc… it’s like childbooks compare to it.

      • Xian Ni May 23, 2015 / 1:41 am

        yes, this seems to be very well written and has a good foundation, not sure why people aren’t fighting over this …

  59. Saturn Buyer May 22, 2015 / 11:57 pm

    i am guessing the End of Translating Xian Ni is nearing and with this Announcement he will probably stop translating Xian Ni after a month .

  60. Yohei Ito May 23, 2015 / 12:00 am

    i am guessing the End of Translating Xian Ni is nearing and with this Announcement he will probably stop translating Xian Ni after a month .

  61. John Adams May 23, 2015 / 12:29 am

    You know you probably lost a lot of interest due to your reading so far ahead. I mean translating stuff you already read and knowing you still have 100+ chapters to translate all of which you have already read well i cant see how that wouldn’t affect my interest/motivation. So just a pro tip if you ever end up translating a different series consider not reading ahead by much in order to keep your desire to know what comes next as strong as some of the readers.

    • burnnnn May 23, 2015 / 12:35 am

      That may have had an effect, yes.

      Though it all depends on the person. I can reread a series 10x without being bored, Re-experiencing the journey is what matters to me.

      I think the fatigue of the size of these chapters lately is more the issue! You may not have felt it but these are LONG since around 122 I think.

  62. burnnnn May 23, 2015 / 12:33 am

    These are fucking long chapters!

    Honestly – I think you deserve a fucking well done badge for your efforts.

    Thanks for at least warning your readers though – it makes everyone happier in the end.

    Might I suggest a hiatus anyway after a nice point in the next few chapters? Take a few days off before you have to do real life work so that it doesn’t affect reality.
    Translators are like pets, got to make sure they are fed and healthy XD
    Your work is appreciated greatly and I think most of your loyal readers wouldn’t mind you doing this.

    I do suggest making some shit posts and laughing with us if you want to! The f5 army can keep you company and we can make you love us! Indoctrination ftw

  63. mrel May 23, 2015 / 12:34 am

    It’s okay… You don’t have to force yourself Void ’cause we understand. So don’t overtax yourself and be inlove with your ‘life’ first before anything else. What I’m trying to say is… Do what you think is good for you. Abusing yourself could make you sick so take a good care of yourself.

    We’re just here and will wait patiently 🙂

  65. Boss May 23, 2015 / 12:37 am

    I read to fast and thought you said 15 months lol. I didn’t know what i was going to do if that was true lol.

  66. Memememememe May 23, 2015 / 12:48 am

    erm…honestly, if there are maybe 3 chapters a week that’s already plenty.

    Seriously, there are other good translations you can read if you’re bored people, like on wuxiaworld. Coming here during weekends to read what’s new for an hour is nice, too.

    • osealey May 23, 2015 / 1:00 am

      When you blow through novels the rate at which most people do and you’re up to date, the wait is a killer man.

  67. osealey May 23, 2015 / 12:59 am

    You considered maybe asking for assistance to lower the work load on the Spec forums? Or maybe talk to Ren to give a shout out on Wuxia World. More traffic there maybe someone might be willing to aid you whilst you take a break or something.

  68. DalCo May 23, 2015 / 1:01 am

    Haha from your previous posts/notes I knew this would happen, sooner than my prediction which was that you would be releasing 1 more chapter before or at the same time you do this kind of thing. But well, as people said above it doesn’t matter. I would be happy if you do at least 1 chapter a week. After all, people have been waiting 1 week for reading manga/manhwa, they’ll be fine and you get to enjoy yourself, do your hobby, go out, make friends, etc. Don’t spend all of your free time in front of a monitor, you’ll regret it someday (Yes, I’ve been there).

  69. Zuggy May 23, 2015 / 1:06 am

    i find this to a be trend with new translators. they usually rush so hard into a project and end up burning yourself. well i hope you get rest and if you going to drop it just drop it so someone who actually wants to do and is going to be dedicated to the project and not fickle. good luck thou

    • voidtranslations May 23, 2015 / 9:38 am

      More or less, probably due to our inexperience with handling such long projects.

      • Zuggy May 24, 2015 / 12:37 am

        Very true too. if you paced yourself in the beginning you probably wouldnt have ran into this but i mean hopefully people join you and can help take the work load or just restart the project up.

  76. Elsie May 23, 2015 / 9:20 am

    Thanks for translating so hard and spending so much of your free time in translating

  77. madhu89 May 23, 2015 / 10:44 am

    sad to see this post today, but i can understand, thanks for the chapters so far m8, i hope u do well with whatever u do xd.

  78. Taka May 23, 2015 / 1:29 pm

    don’t worry. i already have way too many series to read, if i run out of translations, i’ll just have to learn chinese…
    and one chapter a week is still better than waiting for years to finally get to read the last book of a series that’s published only in whole books.

      And now his watch has ended.

  80. Vyl May 23, 2015 / 7:28 pm

    Void put out his best effort but Xian Ni was just too fierce.

    • voidtranslations May 23, 2015 / 7:33 pm

      True Story….

  81. Yobidasareta Satsuriku-sha (Recommended novel) May 23, 2015 / 8:26 pm

    That’s what happen when you read the novel too far.. Even for Ren it’s boring to translates CD’s chapters (he said himself when he decided to take a side project i-forget-the-name) but because of the “bribes” he can somehow to manage it.

    • osealey May 24, 2015 / 12:36 am

      The only problem with that is that it’s started a trend whereby a majority is looking to be “bribed” for their efforts; they deserve to be paid for the work they do if they so ask for it. But with doing that you run into the problem or a scenario like Flower where he’s seeking permission from the author to translate; depending on a yes or no, if it gets out everyone is gonna want a slice of the pie. The more hands in the worse off, then comes licensing and the ship sinks.

      Just my two cents

      • Yohei Ito May 24, 2015 / 6:34 am

        I think the reason why Void stop translating Xian Ni because he lost Interest translating since nobody gives donation for his translation

      • osealey May 24, 2015 / 8:54 am

        MGA is power up after random power ups. Xian Ni at least gave us ample story to work with, It is not uncommon for the slow witted to find it boring as you say.

      • voidtranslations May 24, 2015 / 10:14 am

        Nope, it was never about the donations, on the contrary I would have lost motivation faster because I would have been pressured by the money to force myself, but now I can do it at my leisure.

      • Yobidasareta Satsuriku-sha (Recommended Novel) May 27, 2015 / 10:01 pm

        @Void > In short, Ren is a God 😛

  82. hafu May 24, 2015 / 12:08 am

    Thanks for your work! This should be a hobby not a job. People get spoiled, to those who want more this is an awesome opportunity to learn mandarin. I am slowly doing it, it really is fun. Use dualingo.

  83. osealey May 24, 2015 / 12:32 am

    How about removing the 70% to chapter completion sir? It is simultaneously building my hopes and dashing them quite splendidly sir.

    • Xian Ni May 24, 2015 / 7:12 am

      have you read xian ni?

      • Yohei Ito May 24, 2015 / 7:16 am

        yes and Xian Ni is Boring , the reason why Void stop translating xian ni because it is boring.

    • Seh1at May 24, 2015 / 10:22 am

      MGA is too light, common and obviously Boring… F.. off from Xian Ni kid!

  84. Dark_Messiah May 24, 2015 / 7:24 am

    Maybe if lately the chapters didn’t consist of ~70% explanations of the same thing over and over and over again(just with different wording) in the same chapter while the interesting bits were only about ~30%(it happened a lot lately) i can see how one might lose interest in translating it. Wish the author stopped these lengthy explanations(i don’t have a problem with explanations, just with the ones that could be summarised in 10 sentences, yet span 70%+ of a chapter) and actually focused on the plot.

  85. Sayter May 24, 2015 / 8:00 am

    Like i said to flower, I dont care about those guys, just take a break and keep up the good work (idk how many times i already told you that). Thanks for all of those releases and enjoy your break, Hopefully you wont stop, i dont mind you slowing down or getting more translators just please dont drop Xian Ni, its a pretty good novel and i dont want to be dropped *sniff* *sniff* *sniff*

  86. Yohei Ito May 24, 2015 / 8:35 am

    Rest in peace Void i hope you die in peace.. AMEN

    • sagamaster May 24, 2015 / 8:37 am

      What? you need attention? Go to your mama.

  87. need more chaps May 24, 2015 / 8:52 am

    seems like everyone jst jumping to conclusion here……

    • voidtranslations May 24, 2015 / 10:14 am

      Yea still translating, just taking a bit longer.

      • need more chaps May 24, 2015 / 10:47 am

        Thanks for the hard void!!

  88. Icarus May 24, 2015 / 10:10 am

    xian ni is not boring!!! xian ni is not boring!!!! and this is my opinion. I read a lot of LN and this one is one of my favorites, but sadly, its going to end for a while, thank you for all your hard work and have a good break translator! 🙂
    I will really miss his cruelness and gruesomeness and awesomeness. I like the mc here more than in the MGA, the mc there is too arrogant compared here.

    • Yohei Ito May 24, 2015 / 10:45 am

      Xian Ni is so Boring because the Translator is also Boring … What kind of translator finishes 1 chapter in a week hahah and he said that he is working hard ? hahah what a joke .. Ren and Flower is better than him . Thunder you weak minded that’s why you can’t translate faster because you have a slow mind and weak brain .

      • what May 24, 2015 / 10:49 am

        you are just a scum of earth
        just do us all a favor and fuck off.

      • sagamaster May 24, 2015 / 11:37 am

        Hey scum. Have you gone to your mama? You just ramble your mouth here and don’t have a single translation in your name. btw, what kind of shitty name is Yohei Ito? can’t you pick better name? LMAO.

      • Artegryu May 24, 2015 / 12:20 pm

        Yea xian Ni was being released 1+ chapter a day for the past couple weeks, so you can do the world a favor and get your ignorant ass out of here, then go burn in hell with your family since clearly they sinned for raising a retard like you.

      • Icarus May 25, 2015 / 6:10 am

        attention whore

  89. buzzbannana May 24, 2015 / 10:43 am

    Thank you for your hard work, you have no obligation to do it in the first place, nobody can blame you. Over a hundred chapters of free content it awesome. Perhaps if you get some ads and such and make money off of this blog would be the best, unless you have a job you love more. But whichever choice you make I still thank you for your free, selfless work.
