Hi all, ed.L here.
First and foremost really appreciate all the support in me continuing the translation of GDK. The main reason i decided to continue translating the novel was because I saw the large number of readers who were disappointed from the very moment etvolare announced she was dropping GDK all the way till even the last few chapters that were posted on volare.
I’m aware that there has been much disappointment and unhappiness regarding my release rates, especially in comparison to previously when etvo put out chapters daily. I’m working on it, which I know doesn’t mean anything at all if there aren’t chapters appearing.
First and foremost, please feel free to tell the translators who are willing to take over GDK and pump out chapters daily (unlike me) to contact me, I’ll gladly hand the novel over to the new person. In the end, I’m a reader as well and having daily releases for GDK would sure make me happy too. Feel free to quote me on this if people tell you on NUF that the novel is still being translated.
For those that have pledged on patreon, or have stated that are willing to donate/pledge for more chapters. Really thank you for your support. The main reason I haven’t started donations is also due to the release rate, as I don’t want to end up disappointing those who have donated and owe chapters as well. That would just make you guys think that I’m just cheating away your money.
So, as it stands. Do let me know what option you guys want this to go. This includes those that normally read silently without commenting and are (hopefully) fine as long as they are chapters.
- I’ll continue working on increasing my release rate. (I’m definitely not planning on stopping the novel unless anything major happens.
- Let me know who will take over and do 1 chapter a day, I’ll hand over the novel.
- I’ll temporarily stop posting, till I have a stockpile so that there can be multiple chapters a week, so that there isn’t a large gap in between each chapter.
- I’ll drop the novel and leave it to the next translator to pick it up.
Please let me know what your thoughts are in the comments and I’ll gauge the response after a week, or shorter if you guys want a shorter time frame. I’ll check it once when the weekend ends to see how many responses there are.
the release rates is something that is controlled by me and has nothing to do with Radiant as a whole. Ruze has been really kind to allow me to host my translations here on an established site rather than me having to create my own.
All in all, I still thank you guys for reading my translations and hopefully the journey with GDK will still continue.
