    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 : )

        Hi, since you said you’re putting it here for visibility, Jiggly went ahead and put the link in the proper page. Thanks for the epub!

        • eCookie says:

          I closed my site but the epubs are still up on Armaells site if you want to adjust the links. Made one for Volume 4 but Darkalter has that covered

          • Jigglypuff says:

            Darkatler’s is actually broken in some parts, so if you could also provide yours that’d be great. Also, thanks for letting me know about Armaells site. I’ll update the links.

    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?

      • HadLi says:

        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.

    • Jigglypuff says:

      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.
