Translator Announcements

Hey readers,

Court Lady has finished airing + all chapters have been released! If you haven't caught up already, make sure you do so!

This novel is extremely unpredictable. 

Romance is not its main focus. If you're into action, war, palace politics, comedy, tragedy, schemes, this is for you! (It has romance, but this would not be classified as a romance novel). It's about survival of the fittest. 

It's not over until it's over!

Yoo guys,

It's another bad news ┏༼ ◉ ╭╮ ◉༽┓
The latest published translated chapter is only 10 chapters behind the latest raws (we're at 4886 and the raws are at 4896), and Bee isn't releasing at a constant pace. 

This means that the release could be further cut to tentatively 5 chapters/week in the near future. Nothing has been confirmed yet since Bee has been talking about a mass release of 5 chapters for quite a few days now (and it may or may not come), but in any case, we might not have enough buffer to maintain constant release of 1/day very soon. 

I'm releasing this announcement as a heads up first so that I don't gobsmack anyone, and I'll confirm it at a later date.

EDIT: For the time being, I'll be lowering releases to 6 chapters/week. If Bee speeds up the release rate and the stockpile goes beyond 15, I'll increase the release rate back to 7 chapters/week.

Signing off, Starve

Hello SLR readers!

The giants of Tartarus will now be called "Gigantes." It's a more specific name for the children of Gaia and will be more accurate to the raws as well. I realized there might be some confusion between the giant race (Valdebich's people) and the Giants of Tartarus when they are in the same chapter, which is why we are changing it now. 

Happy reading!

Hyorinmaru is now safely home from hospital following a case of acute pancreatitis, but will need about a week or so to rest up and recover before he is well enough to translate again. Existing advance chapter subscribers may contact our support team to receive a pro rata refund for this period without chapters (approximately 30% of the payment for this month). 

Thanks for your patience; we'll resume posting as soon as possible!

A bright light.

A breeze.

Freedom. Oh how long had it been? He squinted due to the blazing light of the Sun. As he lifted his head and observed his surroundings, a feeling of joy and unsettlement suddenly struck him. 

Escape.

He needed to get away as fast as he could, before they realized his absence. He would borrow the wings of Soldrake to find liberty. He would not get another chance. Not for another 130 chapters at least.

Freedom.

"I did it. I got away. Now I can go back to bingeing all of my favourite novels on WW!!! No more translating!!!!!"

"Sorry to shatter your hopes, but did you really think you could escape? You were playing in the palm of my hands the entire time."

Cosy shouted with glee. Dan looked around in a hurry. Surely this wasn't the end. Perhaps he still had a chance... If it was just Cosy, perhaps he could...

His thoughts came to an abrupt end as chains of words wove a tight net around him.

"Did you really think I was alone? Do you not realize how many sponsors stand behind me? You may deceive yourself,...

Greetings to all readers!

I can't believe that we have actually reached the 200th chapter already, and that's actually very close to the halfway mark (Duke Pendragon has 432 chapters). So, anyway, if you guys are wondering why am I writing this post in Dan's stead and his whereabouts, I locked him in the dungeons to translate more chapters for all of you. ^^

Just kidding! Dan is currently somewhere in the skies, on his way back to Korea after being away from his family members for close to 2 years or so. I'm really envious of him and I wish I could travel soon as well, don't we all? But no worries, I'm sure he will pop in very soon to say hi once he settles down in Korea and all. Also, not to worry, we have a stockpile so you guys will still get your daily fix.

I digressed, but here's the bonus chapter for our 200th chapter milestone!!!

Hi everyone,

We hope you're enjoying The Regressed Demon Lord is Kind so far! Today we've opened a new advance chapter subscription tier, making up to 18 advance chapters available. If you're interested in subscribing to any of the tiers, you can do so here on the tier list page. Thank you for supporting the translation!

Ello guys!

MGA update has been reduced to 1 chapter/day is because there is not many raws chapter ahead (Please refer to Update 1 and Update 2 for more information!)

We're currently on 4789, which means that the highest tier is 4854, and the latest raw is 4870. It has been ~15 chapters away from the latest raw since last November

FAQ:
Q: LNMTL is already up to 5170, so how could the raws only be at 4870?
A: LNMTL is wrong. The legitimate way to check how many raw chapters there are is go on https://www.17k.com/book/493239.html and use Google Translate to translate the webpage to English.

Feel free to ask any questions about the novel's current condition in the comments, and I'll update the FAQ accordingly! (Just don't ask weird questions uh) 

Before I sign off, here's a joke:
Why can't you trust atoms?

Because they make up everything (ಡ艸ಡ)

My surgery date has been changed from July 19th to 4th August and it requires a stay in the hospital. Therefore, chapters the week of July 19th will be normal but for the week of August 4th, the chapters will definitely either be on Sunday or will be included in the next week's tally. Please be aware of this when subscribing to advance chapters.

Hello everyone! \(*^▽^*)/

I hope everyone is doing well. I’m Redbird, and I’m the Korean translator for The Regressed Demon Lord is Kind. It’s a super fun novel, sometimes touching and sad, and I hope everyone can enjoy reading about Zich’s journey to become a “kind” Demon Lord.

A bit of information about me: I was born in the U.S., but I grew up in South Korea for most of my life. Currently, I’m living in the States for my education. It’s been a crazy adventure for the past few years, but I made a lot of good memories. It’s also been one of my dreams to translate a fun novel like this, so I’m sooooo excited to be part of the translating team this year! I’ve done some translating work in the past, but this is the first time I’m working on such a large, ongoing project. I’m still improving and doing my best, so please look kindly upon me :0.  

Thank you for reading this and checking out The Regressed Demon Lord is Kind. I would also like to give a shout-out to Cosy and Slumber (my editor) for making my experience...

UPDATE 07/16/2021: So... I learned the hard, painful way that you shouldn't type for long periods with arms on the armrest. Suffering from mild medial epicondylitis now, which is more or less a swollen elbow. Shouldn't affect releases or anything. I've corrected my posture, and now taking meds and using ice compression.


UPDATE: 05/21/2021 So, a whole lot of Covid cases popped up near me and I was in the same place with one of them. Got tested twice and I'm negative. Really messed up my work schedule though. So much waiting in line. Things are getting pretty hectic here.

UPDATE: 04/24/2021: I will be splitting some of the chapters or so into 2 parts each (starting from 1361) because the author has basically more than doubled the length of each chapter, jumping from around 3k to 6-8k. 

UPDATE 03/01/2021: 

So, there was mention of a Wolf Sovereign and Wolf Monarch/King in chapter 1315. The former is the leader of the Summit of Peaks, but the latter is... from the neutral lands? The leader of the ancestral faction is...

Dear readers of GotM!

This month, we are launching 2 new tiers for Game of the Monarch!! Yay to more chapters! We are really really grateful for all the love you guys have been showing to Milton and also our lovely translator Yojj! Continue reading and also stay safe!!

Hello SLRers, long time no chat! Hope everyone’s been doing well:)

I have several things to address today. And yes. The title is clickbait because there’s no tea to spill. Or is there?

First off, we have another translator with us, PlumpCat! He’ll be translating some chapters here and there. Please give him a plump welcome! He mainly translates another novel, Etranger, so make sure to go check it out (yes free promo)!

Next, this is an announcement for advanced chapter readers only, so the rest of you can enjoy the FAQ below. 

An apology is in order for the top-tier advanced chapter readers. I’m sorry I accidentally only uploaded the first half of the two newest chapters initially. While the problem was fixed within a few hours and the full version is re-uploaded, I offer my sincere apologies since it’s definitely a mistake on my part. It was not intentional, and we will never upload incomplete SLR Chapters on purpose. To try to make up for this, there will be a double chapter release today! I know it can’t compensate...

Hey everyone! New month, new updates!

The previous release schedule was quite uncomfortable for many of our readers in the states, so I bumped it up by 12 hours. Hopefully, those of the F5 sect will be able to make a breakthrough soon because of this change :D

For those of you who are willing to support the novel, there will be more sponsored chapters available soon!

Thank you all for supporting this novel. Happy reading!

Hey guys, 

I'm going to have minor surgery on July 19th to fix an airway problem that I've been having. It requires an overnight stay at the hospital but recovery should be fairly quick. I am going to try and translate chapters in advance so I don't have to skip that week, however, I probably won't have the energy to upload straight away after the surgery. 

For that week, expect chapters more toward the end of the week than the start. They might even be all on Sunday.

Today's chapter was really long (5500 words), but I didn't split it up since it was not over double the average word count. I did have to spend a lot more time translating, so it came out late. I'm only splitting chapters that are absurdly long, like 6,000 to 8,000 Chinese words. The average is 3000-3500.
