About This Translation

Novel Summary (Modified from Wikipedia)

The story is set in a world embroiled by war between Humans and Demons. The Humans’ greatest warrior, also known as the Hero, invades the castle of the Demon King in hopes of vanquishing him. However, the leader of the Demons is actually a Queen, and instead of fighting back, she proposes an alliance with the Hero. She explains how a sudden end to the war will bring further chaos to the world as the Humans would eventually begin fighting among themselves, similar to what occurred in the Demon Realm. Convinced by her words, the Hero joins forces with the Queen and together they execute a plan to bring prosperity and a lasting peace to both Humans and Demons alike.

Maoyuu Team Biographies

Yotsuba NoTranslator – HandsomeBoh:

HandsomeBoh is a KGB sleeper agent by day, and a KGB sleeper agent by night. This whole translator thing is just a cover for his KGB secret agent activities. He pretends to enjoy slice of life/school romance and other blahblahblah, but he’s actually more interested in Economics and Politics. HandsomeBoh joined NanoDesu in order to monitor its subversive behaviour so that his handlers in Moscow and Beijing can stop the spread of consumerist, anti-Communist, evil capitalist behavior.
HandsomeBoh was a fairly experienced Manga and Anime translator before his exams stopped him from speaking Japanese for two years. He has never done LNs before, and the text walls horrify him. HandsomeBoh doesn’t even like Japanese, he prefers Russian or German, but he must maintain his cover for the Glory of the Motherland.

Supervisor – hikaslap

Once upon a time, hikaslap was happy. He had a good life – great grades, great friends, a solid future. A life full of light and love.

It couldn’t last.

Later, after all was said and done, hikaslap could say unashamedly that he didn’t even LIKE light novels anymore, hated them even, for what they had done to him.

But he never did escape.

At one of his lowest points, when his will was weakest and his spirit was tenuous, he saw an application for a position at NanoDesu Translations.

“Well, if you can’t beat ’em…” he sighed.

Then hikaslap became irredeemable, and the circle was complete.

(just kidding! hi, I’m hikaslap. the above bio was written roughly 1.5 years ago. heh.)

(Also, this confused me. Apparently HandsomeBoh and Kai are two names for the same person. go figure.)

    That being said, thanks so much for translating this! Its one of my favorite LNs and even if I don’t read each chapter the day you release it, it is also nice checking in and binge reading 4 chapters at once. Thank you for your hard work.
