All right, so I’ve changed the layout of this website so that an index would be the front page rather than a scroll of the posts. I did this because I felt that it would be easier to access older posts in this way. There’s still a way to access the scroll of new posts, which is by going to the page labeled “Posts.” I will post this part of the announcement on the comments of the home page so that people will understand how to view the posts as well.
Now, I’m sure that the few of you who actually see that I have a progress bar have realized that I have failed to update the progress reports. I’ll try to keep it updated more often from now on. Moving on to the important part: D-Frag chapter 70 has released in Japan, so our translation of it has begun. D-Frag chapter 69 and chapter 70 will, ideally, be released on the same day, which I hope will be either on, or before, the weekends. I’ve just checked, and from what I’ve seen, the newest chapter of Konjiki no Moji Tsukai has not released yet, but it should be soon (it’s a monthly manga).
The translation of the first chapter of the Web Novel is a bit over 70%, but it still needs to be edited and it has been (slightly) delayed, as D-Frag chapter 70 has just released, and I asked GDAFF to help me translate that chapter first. This chapter should be out before next the end of next week (almost a guarantee). I’d love to tell you guys that it will be released before the weekend is over, but there’s no guarantee that this will be released before the weekend is over.
Onto Kamisama Drop, the joint is going well with Pocket Loli Scans, and we’re currently in the state of redrawing (translations have already been done). Redraws should be done by this weekend, then the typesetting will begin, and it should shortly be out.
Finally, my translator for Maou-sama Chotte Sore Totte has gone AWOL, so I will give the chapter to another one of my translators as soon as I catch up to D-Frag and things become less jumbled. So rest assured. The next chapter of Maou-sama Chotte Sore Totte should be out within a decent amount of time, and the future chapters of that manga shall be translated with further haste.
As some of you (those of you who follow oniichanyamete) might already know, we’re going to be picking up the web novel, Hiraheishi wa Kako wo Yumemiru.
The reason I chose to pick up this series is because during one of my chats with oniichanyamete, we were discussing Tsuyokute NEW SAGA when he tells me that a similar novel Hiraheishi wa Kako wo Yumemiru.
The synopsis was given to me by oniichanyamete:
It details the life of a mid-rank soldier who died at the very end of the war against the Demon Race. Fortunately for him, he wakes up to find that he’s a baby again, in the embrace of his real mother, years in the past. Determined to avoid the chain of tragedies that took his beloved ones away from him, he takes advantage of the advancements in swordsmanship and magic that developed during the war (as we all know, wars are when many scientific breakthroughs tend to happen), and tries his best to prepare for the demon invasion as well as strengthen himself with maximum efficiency.
It clearly has nothing to do with oniichanyamete’s suggestion,
lol zeph. i suggest u pick up 1 chapter of any the new gate-esque light novel, and then just leave it sitting there forever. followers are clearly where we draw our powers from, so there’s no shame in using underhanded methods for victory. if you keep sticking to legit methods, you’ll never have enough mana for the special beam cannon.
and I was obviously not tempted by oniichanyamete’s corrupt ways. huehuehue
Anyway, in all seriousness, I’m hoping to have the first chapter out in a week or so, but that’s not a promise. It can, and might, take longer, depending on when the next chapter of the manga adaptation of Konjiki no Moji Tsukai comes out, as GDAFF, who will be translating Hiraheishi wa Kako wo Yumemiru, is the translator of Konjiki no Moji Tsukai.
Cheers, I hope you guys enjoy this series as much as you enjoy our other series!
All right, so this is Chapter 68. I’m not exactly sure when I’ll get Chapter 69 out by. If everything goes well, it could be out as early as tomorrow, but most likely, it’ll be sometime this week, but not tomorrow.
I hope you guys enjoy this chapter!
D-Frag! - Chapter 68: It's a Mystery!
I probably should have slept a few hours ago. I thought that this chapter would have been done sooner, so I just stayed up doing it instead of sleeping, then doing it in the morning.
Anyway, to the more important part; I’d like to say that chapter 68 will be done some time today, but it’d be possible it won’t be done until tomorrow. I hope you guys enjoy this chapter!
Edit: Since the usual file host was not working, I switched to a new one for this file. If this download does not work, tell me and I’ll fix it as soon as I can. Of course, this goes for all the posts; if a download link does not work, please comment it so that I can know to fix it.
D-Frag! - Chapter 67: Future
Sorry about the localized version. That was a misunderstanding between my translator and me. Anyways, Chapter 67 should be out soon if everything goes well. Also, Chapter 68 should also be out shortly after Chapter 67.
D-Frag! - Chapter 66: Eh... Is.... Is That So?
Sorry for releasing a localized version. My translator and I had a misunderstanding. I thought, from his translation, that he wanted me to localize it like it was, but he actually wanted me to use what was in the brackets.
Anyways, I’ll be releasing a literal version when I get home and change the chapter back to normal.
Also, no need to fear, because I do not intend to localize the future chapters, and the literal version of chapter 66 should be up here and batoto some time today.
This is the chapter of D-Frag I was promising! Chapter 67 should be done soon, same estimation as I made for Chapter 66 when I released Konjiki no Moji Tsukai Chapter 4. I believe it’ll be within the week. Hopefully, the progress is the same for Chapter 68. By the way, I know that /a/non has already scanlated chapter 68 and 69, but I still wish to translate those. However, if chapter 70 comes out before i get around to scanlating those two chapters, I’ll push chapter 70 to a higher priority than chapter 68 and 69 since they were already scanlated, and I could scanlate them later. On another note… We’re currently up-to-date with Konjiki no Moji Tsukai, but the next chapter should come out soon. It’s a monthly series. Also, chapter 69 is the latest chapter for D-Frag, but that too, should come out in a little bit.
On another note, I’m thinking of changing the recruitment page soon, once I stop being so lazy. After all, I’ve been using the same two since this group was founded.
Again, about changing the domain, I’ll give a post and/or an auto-direct to the new domain before I move my domain.
These are the D-Frag Volume 9 Extras that I said were going to be posted soon. The next chapter of D-Frag should be released within the week, hopefully (same as what I said last post). Also, I might be moving the site later. When I do, I will either make it automatically redirect from hotchocolatescans.wordpress.com to whatever my new domain would be or make a post about it and link that to my new website. Anyway, like usual, I hope you guys enjoy this chapter!
D-Frag! - Chapter 65.5: Volume 9 Omake
The extras from D-Frag Volume 9 should be up soon, and the next chapter of D-Frag should also up soon, hopefully within this week.
Konjiki no Moji Tsukai - Chapter 04: Departure
Here is D-Frag Chapter 65. The next chapter of D-Frag and Konjiki no Moji Tsukai should be done soon.
