for anyone who actually read the raws and understand the story: does Weed's guild actually ever come to play/interact with Weed besides him reading guild chat?

Just browsing through.. I have to agree with definitely not paying other people to translate... (thought don't get me wrong I appreciate their hard work.. just ain't fair on the author)...

I believe you are going about it the wrong way... Why don't we have a dedicated place where people can sign up saying they will definitely buy the english ver is LMS if the translation occurs.. This would most likely smooth over the publication company and whoever if they know they'll get a minimum number of sales just from releasing a translated ver.

BTW... I have no idea where this can be done but if any1 does.. SIGN ME UP

You mean a petition?

I think they're incomplete translations so that's why it's under summaries.

I have read upto vol 22. If u apply common sense he finished not One Doll but made DOLLS to portray her life (Daughter) from birth to teen to marriage to becoming grandma to die alone peacefully. To show it to the couple if she had lived, that's how your daughter would have spend her life. So instead of Making One statue (Cuz that's impossible to construct a unborn child from imagination), weed gave in to his emotional side (probably cuz of little sister) and portrayed her whole life through Dolls.
The only reason probably say it's not done cuz of his endless greed.
And when he said he will make clothes for the Dolls (yes S), as i recall he made total of 47 from birth to death.
Why he wants to make cloths? Many reason, get more Gift from couple (they as well could become his allies in future), also to increase his Tailoring, also probably a bit of Guilt (just speculation). Some where in LMS novel it mentions how Weed Grandma Wanted to give up his little sister to Orphanage, cuz it was making Weed life a living hell. But weed said no, and probably thought how his little sister life would have turned if their parents were alive.

Weed just doesn't want others to know how greedy he is, so he's just downgrading himself. He doesn't want others to find out how arrogant he is, he want others to view him as a humble person.

Mandol commissioned a sculpture/statue of his unborn daughter, not a DOLL.  (http://lmstranslation.blogspot.com.au/p/1306_17.html)
And the Dolls he made by using imougi' leather in vol 17-6 are Toys for the child. Also it seem that Weed was not happy about  the legendary sculpture " flower of art", he called it an embarrassment and refused to name it. So i think he wanted to make another child statue that is more suitable for Mandol. Which is why in vol 22 he said  he still unable to sculpt their child. Therefore the request is still unfinished.

Chapter 3: Horn of Victory (Title Paraphrased)

Sorry, please read the forum rules to see why you can't view spoilers and why you can't post in this forum section. Thank you!

Mistranslated/typo in that summary there, Mandol commissioned a Sculpture/Statue of his daughter, not doll ( check the above link). So if you replaced the typo"doll" for "sculpture/statue" it seem weed want to make extra clothes for their child statue ( and again, not Doll)


 :sob: :ghostly: Ahhhh reread entire 17-7... he sculpted (well, sewed) the child as Doll... so i was wrong up there :yabai:. I gave up i dont know what to believe any more  :punch: :sic: :AAAAAAAAAA:

the request is complete...
because the doll of flower art already represent their daughter...

what i don't understand... why later at vol 21...
there is new doll appear...



Checked and you are right, he did finished the statue but he does not seem happy about it. in vol 17-6 he called it an embarrassment (he told pabo he was embarrassed bout the statue due to unrefined and slacking skill therefore he did not name it). So i think that statue was not the one he want to make for Mandol and his wife.And  he want to make another one that is more.... perfect/suitable to represent their child?

Then it would made more sense as in vol 22, he told them he have not finished the sculpture for their child yet.

As for the part bout the extra "clothes for the doll", someone might want to check and make sure that "doll" is translated right. For some reason i think he want to make extra clothes for the "statue" (just my 2 cents)

I think weed still have not finished the request for their child statue/sculpture yet, btw the original request was a statue of their daughter not a toy. (source: http://lmstranslation.blogspot.com.au/p/1306_17.html). the doll weed referred to was explained by Herox98x. In volume 17-6, Weed was only made the toy for the child, not a statue yet. For more information please read translated 17-6 in royalroadl.

sorry for misinformation... i was asking about the request... but put quest instead.

what i don't understand was this part...
Quote (selected)
Chapter 3: Horn of Victory (Title Paraphrased)

There's a festival going on in Morata. Pale and co. are also there. Petrov is mentioned; I think he's moping about Weed's sister not being around. Weed is keeping busy at the festival by cooking (his skills are intermediate lvl 8 and he's aiming for advanced). There's a lot of seafood, probably because he's been sailing so much recently. His cooking skill levels up to intermediate 9.

Mandol (the man who comminsioned the dolls of his daughter) shows up with his wife. Weed tells them that he is still unable to sculpt their daughter because of his lack of skill. Mandol then gives him a Fairy Elf (?) and a horn for sounding victories. Weed decides that he'll have to make clothes for the doll, as well.

er the top to create an art exhibition with garden and all

Like Hero say, it's a request, by a player, not a quest. (Also the one who requested the flowers name is Volk, not Mandol, they are two different people, though I get why you could confuse them cuz Volk wanted another sculpture :P)

Anyways, if you want to get more details, it's gonna be up soon in Japtem, Vol 17 ch 6 and 7, just gotta wait :P

But if you wanna be spoiled,

Was it not like this:
Mandol asks for a doll of their daughter and Weed said he'll do it for 1 copper.

Weed after ages decides to do it and soon finds it difficult and so practices for ages by making toy dolls for children. He finally decides to use the Black Imugi leather he got from part1 of his quest to make a series of dolls from birth to death. However he thinks it isn't perfect so doesn't name them making it a legendary sculpture by an unknown sculptor (but since it was made in Morata everyone knows it was by Weed).

Weed then asks Pavot (i think that's what he's called) the architect (1st met him during the expedition for the siberian beads where he fights a bone dragon) to create a suitable house for the dolls (birth to death not the toy ones). Since the dolls where not named when Pavot opens the door (with his friend painter) they get a load of fame and reputation for being the 1st discoverers and are inspired to do their utmost on making a suitable place to display this. Pavot asks why Weed didn't name it and Weed replies that he was embarrassed to put his name on an imperfect sculpture.

Pavot goes over the top to create an art exhibition with garden and all covering something ridiculous like 24 acres... and puts the dolls at the top floor. Mandol and his Wife come to Morata and Mandol is having doubts about the quality of the doll for 1 copper. They are escorted by Pavot to the dolls and are extremely moved and decide to stay in Morata.

The art exhibition soon opens to the public with a fee (something like 5 or 10g but gets raised to something like 15g in the future). At first everyone is angry with the fee but soon realise that it's worth it (even for beginners) as seeing the birth to death dolls give a permanent boost in stats.

^Basic outline of what happens if I remember correctly.

I don't think it is an official quest more like just a request. Basically getting paid to just make a sculptor like when he first did for Mandol by making a flower bouquet back when he was in Rosenheim.

^ That is not the english adaptation.  Someone went around a long time ago blatantly mislabelling that garbage as legendary moonlight sculptor on various manga hosting sites and we all complained and had them taken down, but a lot of the more unknown manga hosts are still hosting that with the label Legendary Moonlight Sculptor. 

The english translation only covered volume 1 and part of volume 2 I think.  The problems with it wasn't that bad really, the translation was accurate.  It's just that they over-localized the series.  Everyone who talked in game used Old-English saying "thou art speaketh that ...." which really killed the mood.  They also changed the names around Lee Hyun was Harn Lee.  It was all stuff that anyone of us here could go through and edit into something more readable.  Of course no one bought the books though with all the weird localization issues.

@Herox98x  the author is trying to find some publisher but it's kind of recent 1-2 months ago maybe?
(actually he already published in english LMS a couple volumes but due to the puke-worthy illustrations the volumes flopped instantly..search for it in google image if theres a cartoonishly retarded image its likely that... )

about announcement there's been the announcement about a webtoon starting for LMS

from which do i need to look for balkan quest arc?
at the end of volume 21 (last 10 pages?) he meets bar khan envoys and gets summoned so try look from there dunno if it's straight bar khan quest to the end

Hey, just joined recently and been trying to read this thread but there's far too many posts.
This talk about the author trying to publish an english version of the book: has there been any announcements and how long ago was this?

I've been trying to translate it for my own benefit recently but its taking an awfully long time (roughly 1.5 hours for half a page  :stabby: ) so would be much happier to just buy the book if it gets published :).

Any hints on translations would help :) I'm currently using GT, BT, babylon and systranet to get a sentence of mumble jumble english and trying to make sense out of it D':

The translations are no longer forthcoming for LMS. It appears the translators have been mostly pissed off by the amount of criticism they have received in regards to their speed in releasing chapters, not to mention the fact that the author has not given his permission for fans to translate volume 21 and above.

Based on LiF3tim3's previous quote on hiring a professional to translate the rest of the remaining volumes, it would cost at most $6,900 to translate the remaining volumes of up to 44. I suppose if people can actually scrounge up the money for at least 5-10 volume translations, then a good discount to the price would be an option. Although, I believe people would most likely rather opt in to test out paid translation first by paying only for 1 volume for $300, and if the end result is satisfactory, then pooling resources together for bulk volumes should be feasible.

Kind of sad we don't have the option of doing a Kickstarter for things like accurate and speedy translations.

i think this cost... 6900 is too high...
i don't think any1 would pay that sums... unless the author also receive part of the fee
-=-=-=-=-=

need guidance...
from which do i need to look for balkan quest arc?
also which vol for elf quest? refer to prina friend arc (i dunno if this is completed quest or ongoing)
for prina arc i considering i just read up to v 20

I am writing in response to the discussion over translation without the author's consent.

Let me be clear that in any Western jurisdiction (and most of the rest of the world) for any third party to publish any work without the prior express consent of the copy right holder is illegal. It matters not if you change parts of the work or translates it into another language first, it also matters not that you publish it in a different country in a different language. To clarify posting such works (translated or not) on the internet is considered published.

The legal remedies available to the original content creator are to take the people/group who published without consent to court in the country he originally published his work in (in our case Korea) for damages for breach of copyright. Legally Jcafe would also be liable as they host the illegal material, and would be a natural co-defendant.

The realities of modern law is that unless the injured party (the author and his original publishing company) feel that they have the time and money to invest into such a legal venture and that they are reasonably likely to win and be awarded in damages more than what it costs to take the action to court they will not pursue it. The cost/benefit is weighted heavily in favor of any rogue publishers in this regard, as even if one is shutdown they will not be able to recover from them any sum of note, and more than likely no where near enough to have funded the court case.

Hmm. Although people can argue the morality of translating it looks like none of us know of the legality of doing so... Does anyone major in law or can anyone google info on this because I still hadn't find any problems on this unless the author ACTUALLY paid for copyright infringement for all of his work. If that is the case then A) there is no problem in translation as long as it is not posted on multiple sites and can be viewed privately as agreement or passworded. Or B) we can translate and show on site, but all posts will be immediately deleted once the copyright has been paid by the author.

One such example is the sword art online translated work that was in baka-tsuki. Translation had been made on volume 13 on light novel and there are still work being done. However all work on the site was immediately removed once copyright payment for the future work was made.

I'm not saying to distribute the translation all over the internet. Just more like a group of people hiring a person to translate a book for them so they can enjoy it. More like if I knew someone who spoke korean and I paid that person to read a book for me.

im no expert but i dont think its illegal because we're paying someone to translate and we're not making a profit off an author's work... if the kickstarter person were to pocket the money, then itd be illegal

yes it is not illegal to pay someone to translate as long as it is for private use...
but for sharing with a lot of people, there is a legal procedure...

just think...
what is the majority income for writer... it is royalties...
unless you're paying the royalties to the writer... and the publisher all translation effort you do is consider illegal and grouped as pirating...

well i just hope there is an english version where i can buy... because korean ver... it will take a very long time just to read 1 vol... with dictionary on hand... lol...

or perhaps i will just collect the manga version... although i dunno if it is going to release yet or not

the point is the author wants to make deals with english booksellers into porting his novel to english speaking countries,
you on the other hand want to make a translation of his work and distribute it around crushing any hope the author has for a deal, it's not about you making money it's about the author not having the possibility to make money were he reasonably should have a chance of.

No offense but no, just no. That's retarded. We are enjoying a work of a person that writes to life, he gets money from selling his work and ASKED to not translate past vol 20. Mark my word he ALLOWED translation till vol.20 he wasn't forced, he could very well send a Cease and Desist and have RoyalRoad and Japtem drop all their works.

He even said just to wait to see if his novel can be ported in english in an official way yet you want to rob him of his chance to make money just to read it sooner.

If you want to do that then by all means get the machine translation and go at it.
Trying to rob an hard working person of his hardships is despicable.

I would support it!
Seriously I wish I knew Korean then I would just buy the whole set of books and read them and of course help translate them.
It is so sad that such a good series doesn't get the attention it deserves from translators.

By the way a good light novel similar to LMS is ARK(Japtem translated it to vol.3 chap.7). It is very similar to the point you would think the authors copied from one another.

Mahouka and Log Horizon are more a about politics  than they are about battles.

If you're looking for a traditional battle light novel they definitely aren't for you. The battles in Mahouka and Log Horizon are mainly fought with words more than anything else.

If you want a good light novel similar to LMS try Only Sense Online, its really great.

It currently has 1 volume out.

I loved Mahouka Koukou no Rettouse and Log horizon but I watched the anime first and then read the volume that wasn't covered in the anime and they were worth it; but I understand the novel wasn't as quick and powerful as the anime.

I also hated SAO anime but loved the novel...
