So I was reminded that two translations of the same stuff going on at once may be confusing to navigate through on Novel Updates. I’ll be dropping Demon King (continued by original translator) and picking up a different cnovel (see Ongoing Polls) or post below for more info.
Of course if you really want spoilers for Demon King I’ll be happy enough to write up a summary for anyone interested. Just drop me a comment. ^^
On to the potential translation projects~
Half-Tried Little Deity: Features a couple with gray morality and hijinx. There is some time travel but it’s justified. The female lead is mischievous and the story’s mostly about her getting picked up by her master and having adventures, meeting the male lead (a powerful demon) along the way. There’s also a kind of side plot BL going on between the two leads’ pets: a snake and a fox.
Ostentatious Zhao Yao: Female lead (reborn in current time) was a dramatic demon queen of sorts in her past life, dying unexpectedly (hence quietly) because of some mishap with a sword. She thinks her trusted subordinate did it when he’s really brutally in love with her and guilty over the accident. He’s now the head demon lord. Lots of misunderstandings and hilarity abound.
With One Smile, the Sword Tramples the Mushroom: I won’t reveal the convoluted background plot I found out via spoilers, but it involves a plain girl (mushroom spirit) and her fated encounter with the male lead, the reincarnation of an almighty dragon god. Spoilers I’ve read warn that the build up is very slow (like 20 chapters in) but the couple is among the loveliest. Rather more serious than the two other series.
Keeping this open for about a week. I might post a teaser chapter from each depending on my mood. ^^
