Manuke FPS Chapter 13

Over here. May be a bit strange because I don’t remember what I did yesterday…

Also, I’m picking up a new side-project, so recommend any light novels that anyone has explicitly said they are dropping or has not been translated. Hopefully something without not too many already translated chapters so I can get up to speed quickly.

I chose VERMILION – ÉTRANGER À L’ARC ROUGE because the guy’s name is “Jap the Ripper.” If there are any others you like that have short chapters or easy wording, I might still take them on (vermilion may be a bit of a handful).

    How about Vermillion; Étranger À L’arc Rouge

    Synopsis: –

    Western VRMMO 【DEMONDAL】 was known for its extremely harsh game system. To begin with, there were no levels. There were no skills. There were no guilds. There was no inventory. There were no convenient system messages or maps of any kind either. It was so needlessly realistic that it was already basically a VR life simulator.

    As for anything game-like, it was basically limited to weapon masteries; a proficiency level that you got from using your weapon, as well as physical strength that increased as well. That was it.

    It was a fantasy game so there was magic, but forming a contract with a spirit was extremely difficult, and only 1% of the playerbase were magicians.

    In this VR game 【DEMONDAL】 that was ridiculously close to reality, the protagonist Kei who was a well known mounted archery expert, was one day sent to another world with his Russian 【DEMONDAL】 friend.

    The game that was severe to begin with had turned into a reality, and the harshness increased again――


    Why you should translate Vermillion:

    -The writing is a lot more interesting than the synopsis would suggest

    -It is one of few ‘VMMORPG→Isekai’ novels where the combat is not just listing a bunch of magical skills that nobody has ever heard of before. Reading a bunch of skills they probably made up on the spot is really not fun reading to me, personally.

    -The characters have motivations and preferences, and backgrounds that affect these, but the backgrounds are revealed slowly and subtly, which tones down the melodrama. It also tones down the feeling of ‘throwing in more attributes because the characters aren’t interesting/unique/chuunimaterial enough’.

    -At the same time, they aren’t thrown in your face, and the characters feel more real, and less a walking, 2-dimensional sack of problems.

    -The protagonist actually develops, and at a fairly well-timed pace. Slowly enough that you realise that he really does have a problem, but quickly enough that you don’t start to hate him for it.

    -The protagonist and main heroine have a close relationship that is enjoyable to read about, and the fact that they only slowly develop romantically is refreshing and cute.

    -The world-building is half-decent at least.

    -The author seems to have an interest in the world outside of Japan, and it definitely reflects in his writing.
