Thanks and sorry for the people who’s still waiting my translation out there. I’ve decided to completely discontinue translating Sonomono series.
There were not many people reading it when I just started translating it. I could do it at my own pace and didn’t feel burdened with the other stuffs. All the comments from the readers also motivated me to keep translating more chapters.
However, when it gained popularity, some people started to boss me around, demanded more release without caring my situation. This hobby began to feel like a chore. The boiling point was when that guy poached my translation, I’ve completely lost my motivation to continue it.
I really wanted to finish translating this series on my own, but it was impossible. I’ve tried to keep my hands off this series for some months to cool down, and I’ve been translating new novel to change pace lately. But neither of them worked.
I wonder if it would be better if this series never gained popularity? Well, I’m happy when a lot people enjoying my translations though. I’m really going nowhere at this rate, so I will let it go while I can still remember it as a novel that made a lot people know me.
I’ll move on. I will start anew from zero with a new novel. Slowly, without any hard feelings…. Then again, I’m still in the middle of re-editing all chapter’s I’ve translated so far, to be more readable, and still nowhere near finish. Please wait for me patiently!
