    As of 11-August-2016, the EPUBs are not available – ecookie’s wordpress site has been marked private, so they’re no longer available. (please remove this comment if the link gets fixed : )

    how is this novel situation? i heard some info about the author doing a remake. you guys are translating the remake or the older on? can you guys put in the site some info about it?

    • Jigglypuff says:

      This is the older one. V5 is the last. After this comes the reset. The new one will also be translated.

        Ano~ jugglypuff dono, can you brief a bit about the remake, I’ve also heard about it
        Does it mean that the author start the story from the scratch… From the beginning or the author start somewhere in the middle of the volumes?

    Thanks for the translation and epubs!
    Anyway, the synopsis should include [Alt. Title: The Slime Lord] LOL.

    It seams someone put a bunch of redirect links on your page. May want to look into getting rid of them and finding who is trying to drive people away from your page.

      Hi, if you’re referring to the infolinks stuff, they’re just in-text ads.
      Thanks for letting me know though, I appreciate it.

    Hi I would like to know if the novel is stopping or if it will continue. If it continue do you have an idea of when will the author release his volume (and if you will translate theme ) thanks for all your translation !

    • Jigglypuff says:

      RAWS are continuing (Although it started from scratch again.) and so are translations. What do you mean by “his” volume? Do you mean “this?” volume as in the latest volume? I don’t know. Last, I checked he was at V2, so might be a while.

    A suggestion for Jigglypuff. i know this may end up as a huge expense of effort, but I hope that this can be corrected. 従魔術 , which you have translated as slave magic, is seriously offending. 従魔 is familiar, so this is similar to what vampires call familiarization, except that in the context of this story, it is done through a magic contract. Please spare me with the ugly term slave magic as it means a totally different thing. If you want to know what it means, read Himekishi ga Classmate.

    All posts are working. If anyone comes across a chapter that won’t load, please give it a minute, and then refresh. Also, please inform me if you do happen upon one. Either via the chat in the sidebar (in desktop mode)/ bottom bar (in mobile mode) or by email to [email protected]

    Hopefully someone will make a PDF for what there is of volume 5. It’s a shame that this got rebooted. (I’ll likely read the reboot, but starting over a story because of a reboot is never something I’m particularly fond of)

  9. vandfon says:

    I would like to know if you already have a forecast of when it will start volume 6. Since the story stopped in volume 5 with 38 chapters. I really like this story, I hope it continues to be posted here.

    • André Milani-Martin says:

      the author somewhat wrote himself into a hole. He failed to introduce new ways for the story to continue and grow since everything adventure related already has been done. Now what is left is writing the story around the girls and the kingdom (trouble with nobles and war).

      But since the author didn’t introduce other countries, cultures, nobles and factions previously he hit a wall now.

      So he will rewrite the story to make it work out properly this time….and get to the happy Ryouma+Elia ending.
