Hey guys, it’s been some time. As you may have noticed if you’re here, we’re now shikkakutranslation.org. Yay!! That also means that you’ll see some ads here and there on the site as well. Now if you can, please consider whitelisting the site on your adblock if you are using one as that’d be very helpful towards me and my translations. I mainly opted to start this to further motivate myself to translate more and because, well, why not? 😛 If you feel like contributing towards me, you can also pause your adblock for a few minutes, click a few links and then resume adblock again. You should know how these things work after all XP. Seriously, that’d be very helpful. I’m using WordAds so the risk of malicious links is almost nil as well.
Now onto the more important stuff, I have been thinking of picking up a new WN to translate for quite a lot of time and have been looking for prospective new novels. One such I’m very interested in is Tower of Karma.
Here’s a synopsis by skythewood.-
“This world isn’t fair.
While there are people who drink fine from golden cup, there are people who drink dirty puddle that people have stepped on. While there are people who adorn themselves with fines and warmest fur coats, there are people who only wear hagged rags.
This world isn’t happiness.
From the moment of birth, one’s social status is decided. Rich child, poor child, child of a noble, child of a farmer, child of a slave. If born a slave, it’s impossible to climb up.
This world is cruel.
One man’s happiness is another’s misery. People fight over limited resources and die in the end. Life is dancing on top of corpses. Go insane, go eat, go take what you want, go kill.
This world is hell.
The one who has everything taken away, the “White Vengeance” will smash the world. Eat as you please, pillage as you please, kill and take everything for yourself. This story is about a struggle of the person born at the bottom, and a tragedy as well as a comedy of the one aiming for the top. Pity him and laugh at him. But the white man will only build up his Tower of Karma as his desires dictates.
Let us see how high his Tower of Karma will be when the story is over.”
It is a very dark, brutal novel, almost Xianxia level but without the over-the-top plot-armor filled fantasy-stupidity that chinese novels sometimes have and is very well written.
However, I’m also open to other suggestions, so if you want to see a novel translated that you found in some forums, reddit etc and is not being worked on by some other Tler, leave it in the comments. If I get lots of recommendations I like as well (extra points if it has not very long ass chapters like KENS XD), I’ll put up a poll for you guys to decide which novel I will start.
As for the next KENS chapter, I am a bit late due to shitload of assignments that I had to submit and I was very close to the deadline, but it’ll come by tomorrow most probably. It’s a pretty big chapter as usual as well.
Goodjob, and give yourself a pat on the back if you kept on reading this long-ass rant till now lol.
