Volume 11 Release

DasRay and the team here, long time no see, now we bring you Volume 11 of “That Time I Got Reincarnated as a Slime”.

Epub & PDF ( Drive contains Coloured Edition)

Slime Reader (Will be updated soon)

This time around, we are very excited to bring you a special edition with coloured illustration. This is not official colouring done by the illustrator of the Light Novel Mitz Vah, so please consider this a fan interpretation of the illustrations. These amazing colourings were done by Theri (@jetsettheri), go support his work at his twitter handle.

With that being said, I would like to apologize beforehand regarding the quality of one specific chapter, I don’t think I’ve disclosed this publicly before, but members of the team are very aware of my criticism (or distaste) for some of Fuse’s writing, and this certain chapter embodied everything I hate about this series’ writing.

I think most would understand why once they read the chapter, I (and Anna because I was mentally exhausted halfway through) finished translating so it last and it was edited hastily as well, I’ve also deliberatedly asked the team to focus more on other chapters, so expect the quality to be low. I take full responsbility for the possible displeasure it will cause for the readers, but please try to understand, I don’t get paid enough to fry my head with garbage. Luckily, even if you choose to ignore this chapter completely, it will not affect your overall experience with the volume’s story whatsoever, so rest assured in that regards.

Nevertheless, we hope you all enjoy the conclusion to the Western Nations Arc. From Volume 12 onward, Rimuru and his companions would begin their rivalry with the Eastern Empire.

Regarding future translations

With volume 11 comes the end of the Western Nations arc, and it also marks the sixth volume we have translated. We have grown from a small team of 4 people to now a much more competent group with over a dozen editors, proofreaders contributing to the translation. Personally as the transaltor, I would like to thank each and every member of the team, whether you are those who had become inactive, left the group, or newly joined members, thank you all for your hard work, it has been an arduous but enjoyable journey. And on behalf of the team, I would like to thank you, the fans of the series for your continued support of our fan translation.

On that note, I would like to announce that I will be taking an indefinite break from translating to focus on my personal life, another hiatus you may say, but just for myself. You may have noticed in the credit that we have had the pleasure to recruit our Korean translator Anna. In the past few volumes, Anna has only worked on small bits of the volume, but after volume 11, she will be tackling the majority of the volumes, likely for the next few entries.

It is likely that the next volume would take a longer time to come out, but do be reminded that we are not on official hiatus, however, there likely will not be an estimate for volume 12 any time soon, please be respectful and patient during the wait.

And that concludes about everything we have to say. Hope you all enjoy the new volume, have a good one.

  2. Given that everyone is trapped indoors, I thought that vol 12 would have been translated relatively quickly. You are still doing it aren’t you?
    I (and everyone else) would be eternally grateful for any kind of update.
    Thanks.

  3. This is starting to make me worry. In the blog post for volume 11 you talked about how the team had grown as well as not being on official hiatus but there hasn’t been any info for more than half a year. Did something happen?

  5. Day 214: I’ve been waiting for the release of volume 12 since the day volume 11 was released. There are still no update or estimation of its release date. I don’t know how much longer I can last. All I can do is sit and pray that they will bless us with the next volume before Yen Press does. I don’t know if I’ll survive reading what Yen Press releases… Oh how I fear for the future.
