Monthly Progress Report & Stuff - March 2019

Hi everyone! How have you all been this month! I'm tired, but fine nonetheless.

Our little patreon community has gone from 44 to 46 since last month, with a few joining and few leaving like always. Thank you patrons who have been staying with me even now, patrons who decided to join me  as well as the patrons who have decided to leave, for supporting me in my translations. It always makes me happy people care about my translation and are willing to support my efforts.

Just like the previous monthly post,  I will report what chapters I'm currently translating of each project I'm doing as well as things I'd want to discuss with you all and any other things that could influence my translations in one way or another.  


Translation progress 

  • Second Summon: Chapter 90 at 0% -> 94 at 50%
  • Hiki-NEET:  Vol 8 Idle talk 6 at 0% -> Vol 9 Chapter 5 at 0%
  • Retired Hero: Chapter 21 at ~70% -> Chapter 28 at 0%
  • Monthly bonus: 0% -> ~62%

I didn't go as far as I wanted to go, but I think I've done a good job so far.

This month I've done four out of six chapters of second summon, seven out of ten chapters of hiki-NEET and seven out of twelve chapters of Retired Hero. Actually I probably miscounted, but I noticed I didn't have to translate that many. So long as I can keep do one extra chapter of second summon, two extra hiki-neet chapters and two extra retired hero chapters, I should be set for all the tiers at least. I guess I'll be focusing on that last run. I've still done around twenty chapters this month so I feel like I've done pretty well this month. My greatest mistake is getting curious about Azur lane I guess. I'm the collector kind of person, so yeah.


$1.5 tiers and change in tier rewards  

Once I translated twelve chapters ahead on all three novels, I'm planning on adding three $1.5(or $1) tiers (bronze plus rank) which will be more specific to the novels. Those will receive two advance chapters of a single specific title. Why $1.5? I actually still want people to choose bronze rank for the variety instead of sending them all to the bronze plus rank. Though in all honesty I don't mind either way. I know most people don't read every single title I translate.
When I do add those I may consider increasing the number of advance chapters of silver rank and above by one chapter.  If you have any sort of opinion about this, please let me know in the comments.


That is all I want to throw out to you guys. If you want to respond in any of the above points or have any other questions, please let me know through comments, mail or discord(link here just in case). I'll be more than happy to respond to you.

 Thank you for reading and see you in my next translations and/or monthly report!
