So yeah, I was planning a mass release because this is CKM's first anniversary (well technically, the day I opened it). I was planning a mass release but I left most things to the last minute. I was really interested in something else but oh well, whatever.

I'm talking rubbish here, not a very good start to a new year of scanlation huh?

I know that most groups tend to have a dozen manga on their anniversaries, but I don't have the time nor good management skills. I've been kind of creeped out at the amount of homework I've been having these days. Everything that used to take an hour is now taking a lot longer (because I worry about this and that). And then my parents they are Okay, okay, forget what I was going to say.

I think I'll do another release, updating Re-agree, Cooking Master Boy, Akatsuki no Ageha, Root WPB and Black Trick on the 14th actually, the date when I first released something. My very first edit (which totally sucked by the way. God, it's hideous, maybe I should re-release it or something).

Haha, haha (or should I just say 'lol'?)

So today, you (only) get two releases...

Yan Zhi Cuo Vol02 Ch11 (end)
What? We're already at the end? That was wayy too short.
--Actually, I'm pretty happy that I finally got round to typesetting & translating this manhua. It was pretty... weird? Okay, maybe not, because it was a pretty cool chapter (particularly loved what happened to Huangye)

YEAH!! That's our seventh completed project (excluding oneshots of course)!! It's also our first completed project with at two volumes (I know this sounds lame, because all of our previous completed projects are about a volume long).

The Yan Zhi Cuo forum is now in the Completed Projects forum!

Oh! The download link, I totally forgot:

Gu Fang Bu Zi Shang (novel) Vol01 Ch09
Unfortunately for you guys, I'm going to put this project on hold. The next chapter (chapter 10) will probably be released at the start of May.

Why am I doing this? Because I have to get back to a certain project -- and unlike this novel, I actually feel obliged to do it. It's something I kinda like doing, I guess.

So does that mean I don't like translating Gu Fang? No, not really. It's just that the chapter 8 really put me off for a while and I honestly want a break. Novels are so much harder to translate than manga & manhua. Well yeah, it only took me around four or five hours to translate this chapter (easily done in a day) but there are way to many words.

That is my honest opinion. I really need a break from this. Translating is very different from actually reading it. Like, I have to worry about 'is my translation right?' 'is this interesting to read?' 'what is the deeper meaning?' I reckon these questions are very important, particularly the third one, when translating fantasised historical/political novels.

For some reason, Chinese doesn't translate naturally into English in my head, nor does English naturally translate into Chinese. Like... when someone says something in Chinese, I just know what it is, and I don't need to revert to the English word. If someone says it in English, I know what it means as well, but it doesn't 'become' Chinese in my mind. It actually takes a while for me to translate from Chinese to English or vice versa. It's a bit different from Japanese but Sorry, ignore that, I was just bored.

I don't mind if you guys rant (or beg) for releases in the chatbox, just please don't send me any 'inquiring' emails (or I'll probably end up killing you). If you dare send me something like, "when are you going to release chapter 10 of... / chapter 4 of..." or I will ignore you and feel bad for the rest of the day (while, I guess I can't kill you anyway).

Now that this novel is on hold, I can actually sigh in relief! I can finally get back to scanlating properly doing my homework!

Download links and everything here:

In a nutshell, I hope you enjoy this chapter anyway. Thanks for all the support! :3

'kay, I'm done. Bye for now!

P.S: I'm not in a good mood at the moment, so don't make me even more annoyed, okay?

P.P.S: Ultraman fans, wanted to quote this:
