Just tear down the released part.
If the first volume licensed up, just tear down the first volume in Baka-Tsuki.
Why must all of it been abondoned?
Isn't it was your blood, and sweat, and tear, and most of your effort for years?


Okay, I can be wrong, but I will put some points here:

  • First: If we maintain the series on the site, we will be only doing a crime. :)
  • Second: The first purpose of B-T was to incentive the licensing of the novels, once SAO and AW got licensed, B-T fulfil it's purpose, keeping the series on the site would be bad, it'll be betraying the first purpose.
  • Shakugan no Shana had a special condition which lead to restart translating, but it was first dropped though.

I can be wrong at my points, but this is how I see. :wink:

P.S. the ones who start translating here, are aware of the risks... :wink: Or at least I think everyone readed the common agreement... :roll:

OMGGGG :((((((((((((
How could this happen :(
Man , This Sucks For me :|
i am happy that it getting Licensed and Release , and hope it Sell good and it continue and keep Releasing the new Vols

but For me ! who live in iran , with no way of buying these Books or anything getting Shipped here , I not only lost my chance to Read SAO new Vols , but i can't even buy the Physical Copy of new Vols and Wait for new Vol To get Released ! ( IF it even get released all the way ...... )
i Am Dying Right now to Read Vol 13 and Was hoping it get Translated soon :(
Can't u Guys At Least Keep the Last Few Vols ? :| Similar to how Mangastream is Doing it for Mangas .... only the Few last Chapters are there , then they got Deleted .
i Really Can't wait years to read Vol 13 :( and Ofc i already took a while Learning English , i can't Learn the hard Japanese Language with 3 Alphabet :|
Damn , i would even Pay Triple or more for a Volume if i could get the new Vols Translated and not wait years for it :|
( Considering the Converting Ratio of My Country Money and $ is at 3.2 atm ( was 1.2 Just last year ! we in ban now :| ) , Paying Triple mean Paying 9-10 Time For me lol )

First of all, it's "kept" not "keeped"...

Pedram wrote:i Wonder if any Translator still keep translating it in other sites ....

Seeing that the SAO fanbase is quite huge, there may be a pretty good chance for it to happen (like what happened with S&W and Haruhi). Just keep wishing~

Or like what Nura said, wait for the scans to float around the net (probably a year or two from now).

Well i hope some of those fans do it :D
finding scans or pdf of published books not so hard on net , but i am sad at the part that it wil just start Vol 1 in 2014 ! even if they release 4 Vol Each Years ! it need 4 years till it get to Vol 13 ! :|
that is Just Sad ! :|
4 years for something already out and something that i am dying to read atm :P
Who knows what happen ! i might even die in these 4 years ! lol :lol:

It's fortunate and unfortunate that the light novels are being licenses. I just wish the arc was completed and fully translated before it was taken off :(

Oh well, nothing we can do about it. I will still like to thanks all the translator and editor who work on the two light novels. Without them, I would never come to appreciate both the light novel, and reading as a hobby since I literally grew up hating to read.

two of the three alphabets are inter-convertable and the third one isn't really an alphabet and also possible to down-convert to kana...
Or would it be possible for you to leave iran or alter the country's international trade situation? XD

I just registered here, to show my gratitude for the fantranslation of Accel World and Sword Art Online. As I heard the news yesterday on the website of Yen Press, I immediately knew where my money will be heading to in 2014. :D

I immediately wondered what would happen here, but since the Haruhi translation was taken off at official release, I expected the same would happen for Accel World and SAO. Though I can see why some aren't happy with that, I only think it's fair towards the author and publisher to take the fantranslations off.

I had lots of fun reading the fantranslation, will gladly start over again with the official release and support the author's work. Thanks again to all the fantranslators!

I agree with this. Wouldn't it be handy for the publishers if they could see how popular series are and how much they're being read over here? That way they can decide if something's a risk or not (that's the common reason I hear from some publishers about publishing LN in west, though I think LN's are really starting to grow in the west now compared to a few years back).

seeing how spice and wolf ended a couple years ago and yen press still have 6-7 vol yet to be released on English, isn't there a way to request for them to publish all the published vol on japan faster, i don't see why we have to be made to wait for material that is already published, they already proved that simultaneous releases can be made with the ch 30 of HOTD. to be honest is totally absurd that they think we will just sit around and wait for they to go at their own place, for god sake most of the translation works here have been done by a single guy in a month while having to deal with work/studies/rl and he/she is doing it as a hobby, why a paid translator cant better after all that is what he is being paid for, if they want to license it fine but we want em to do it fast if they want our money or get out of the way of the people that are doing it for free

I've just reread through TLG's translation common agreement. Submitting new content now would be pretty much breaking no. 1.

Code: Select all
Section B Under no circumstances would you(b2) 1. submit works(a) that are licenced(d) in the country the server and/or the submitter is located in. 2. submit translated works(a) copied directly from an unauthorized source such as, but not limited to, online, written sources etc. . If you(b2) submit works(a) that have been authorized by their rights holder, permission, in the form of written/electronic/printed must be available upon request. All translated works(a) rights are properties of their respective translators. By submitting translated works(a) to this wiki(0) you(b2) agree that All works(a) will be deleted without warning upon request by the copyright holders..
