Well, I can’t say I didn’t expect this.
But it still hurts man.
4 years of this, and I deliberately slowed down because I knew it would be licensed back in 2015.
…It’s hard man…
Well, as the one who drafted the projection abandonment policy on Baka-Tsuki, I shall follow the policy as drafted. I know j-novel’s policy has been relatively more lax compared to mine, but I just feel that this is something I should live and die by.

Having talked to Sam of J-novel over this, I did voice out a lot of my issues. It’s very draining, having stuff taken over the years even though I know they’re not mine. SAO, Accel World, Index, Black Bullet, NGNL (small portion), I would have broken down a long time ago. However, I gave my word that I’ll delete them, which I did.
All the volumes I have set to upload shall remain as such, except for Clockwork volume 4, which while I promised is set for release at the end of the month, I will henceforth delete it. This is not only because of legal issues, but also, I feel, is to provide a clean slate so that there’s no need to compare against the official translations (let’s face it, we know there are pirates out there anyway)
As for future plans, I have lined up one last project. As I have repeated over and over since 2013, I wanted this to be my last project. And now, I shall take it.
It’s been a fun time translating for you people, so please provide your support to the author.
At the same time, I shall announce my last project:
