Unexpected Announcement

So my original announcement took an unexpected turn and will be delayed until a later date.

The reason is because I was contacted by qidian recruitment. I’m not sure about the details (I’m trying to find that out) but they said they are going to start translating HM soon and wanted to know if I was interested in joining. They’re trying to get themselves organized (with Volare and what not) but they have a translator who’s interested in doing the series.

As of right now, this shouldn’t affect anything (I hope) but I plan on releasing up to chapter 236-237(should take about 18 days, 6 days if I crank out 3 chapters a day) as there’s kind of a natural pause there.

I don’t really know what to do yet, as qidian doesn’t really have good press in regards to their deal with other people.

I personally plan on translating until they start their translations at the very least. Once that happens, I’ll go from there.

I’ll do my best to keep you guys posted and try to get as many HM chapters out as possible. Enjoy your daily releases.

  1. well theres a lot of bad rep about their contracts, so u should read it carefully before deciding anything lol. anyway im looking forward to ur next chapters, thanks for the fast paced translations ~

      1. Yep, just look at the contract that they give you first but please be really careful about it if you do want to join them. Whatever happens, you have my support πŸ˜€

  2. Oh my…is this good news or bad news..i dont know..but if they start translating,hope the speed still as your translation…but i will always support you…thank you..

  3. The main issue with Qidian is the contracts. You’re basically signing away all your rights to them! The terms are bad as well. It’s not a good idea, but it’s up to you. You’re actually really good as a translator, hope you continue translating, whether on HM or something else πŸ’š

      1. try to discuss the contract (once you have em) with the HM team on Volare. and i believe many readers would be willing to help you analyze it πŸ™‚

  4. As long as you don’t stop translating this story..
    We don’t even know if we should pay to read in qidian in the future or not..

      1. Not at the moment but there’s a probability for the future.. I restraint myself from reading any novel from qidian these days..

    1. There is a great possibility of paywall on QI. Isn’t it the only end waiting for us if the hosting monopoly of QI continues? Anyways, I decided to stop reading on QI,not because I want to boycott them but mainly because I do not want to get attached to a novel only to be forced to pay-to-read.

    1. Edits have likely been made since the leaked contract was from an early release and has probably been changed.

  5. Thank you so much, I already feared that this would happen from day one. I hope you’re not going to be in any law issues from this. You’re one of my favourite translator, being actively involved with readers, being super amazing for continuing on this translation. Thank you so much for putting time and effects for us readers. <3

    Would you be translating another story after this? Or just waiting and see for now? πŸ™‚

      1. Oooohhh…
        Could you pls try to look at Divorce: This is a Trivial Matter by chestnut?
        It’s just teaser for the first 3 chapters so far..

      2. I second Nanamony.. I want to read Chestnust’s Divorce: This is a Trivial Matter too. The first three chapters was so amazing, too bad it lost in the poll and the translators picked up the other stories. So far no one had come forth to translate it.

  6. Hi.I really appreciate your efforts of translating this for us.
    About QI, be very, very careful about signing the contract. A friend of mine had been offered the same and upon reading it over and over, he decided to just stop translating his project. My advise is to research about QI’s reputation with their authors. πŸ™

    But it is your decision to make. I can only support you here. GL πŸ™‚

  7. you should read the contract really carefully because there might be a bunch of traps in there…

    If the contract says that you are doing work for hire (with this uou have no rights to your translation), you should really think about it…

    the reputation of qidan is, by what is known to me, very bad.

    I really like your translation. it has a nice flow, which makes fun to read. i know how difficult it is to translate an language as cn since i know jp and they are similiar. but you are doing a very good job here and the translator before you was also very good, so i assume you had a lot of pressure because of quality.

    but, for myself i can say, i am very satisfied with yours.

    my advice to would be to choose another projekt (non qidan). there you wouldnt have these issues (most likely).

    Nevertheless the choice is yours.. and we will not abandon you over this.
    although i personly hate qi.

      1. if u not very sure how the clauses work u can get some people familiar with law for advice. QI n WW issues started merely bcoz of QI representative has bad english. i’m not good myself but its looks like that.

        n if u decided to join that ok too but for sure to check every terms given n do not easily agreed by verbal agreement.

        as for ur announcement..their ‘offer’ r clearly showed they r threaten u..if u dont want to join..theres translator would like to take this novel..as far as i know..u r not the 1st person they r doing this..

        p/s: i heard rumors saying they r hunting down all translator site which picked their novels with FL as MC..so i guess lots of them turn down as there r not many FL novels there..

  8. I hope this contract will not stop this project we are very satisfied with you blazaria
    I don’t know why I have a bad feeling take care angel πŸ˜‰

  9. Noooooooo!! Thats it! I’m soooo gonna make a password protected site (like the ones for otakumole)just for hidden marriage. I love your translations😭😭😭 it’s gonna suck if you stop and uwaaaah😭

    1. So we’ll be making an announcement on those posts at the end of week. Also don’t want to spoil it for those who haven’t read up to that point yet. Sorry, I wish NU wouldn’t grab things automatically from the site TT_TT

  10. Hope the best for you! If you really accept their offer, after sometimes QI will issue paywall to read this novel.
    Thanks for the translation
