It’s Aran here. I know I’ve not been the most stable of translators in a while. Life, issues and a general lack of motivation has made translating difficult at the best of times. I know I’ve not been giving IGE the attention it deserves and that’s unfair for the readers. So when I discovered another group translating IGE, at first I felt shock, and then outrage – IGE is the novel that I’ve spent thousands of hours translating, and it’s hard not to grow attached even though the novels belongs to no one but the authors. However when I thought about it some more, I had to admit to myself – it probably is in better hands, with someone that can dedicate the time to translate chapters weekly. Ever since I’ve graduated, I’ve really struggled with keeping up to the commitment of translating day in day out. Do I have really have the time to translate IGE properly? Can I really commit myself to a regular schedule? We all need to learn to let go, and the time is now.
With that, and careful reflection, I will bid farewell to Imperial God Emperor – It’s been a good year and a bit, but thank you for all the support and for all the readers along the way. Who knows what the future holds – but for now, I will say goodbye to IGE. I wish the new translators the best of luck and I offer a hand to lend them any help they may need.
On other, more happy, news, IDS will still be translated by Selda – and since I’m free now, expect the rate of chapters to be released to increase as I can help up more. Honestly, this story is just about to pick up pace and steam big time – it’s one of the stories I look forward to reading new chapters every day. If you guys can read up to chapter 600, I am sure you would agree with me that it’s a fantastic story.
With that being said – here’s 10 chapters of IDS. With that, we should have roughly caught up with our scehdule of 3 a week, since we’ve missed a couple of weeks. 😀
More to come,
