wow i just realized that this site has changed from wordpress to actual .com site


hi i just start the series now and i see your speed on is crazy fast im happy and little worried of the if can understand the chapter so im just asking and im not say im happy that someone have pick the series sorry for bad eng


I was sent here by japtem since they decided to drop the series so i’m glad you are taking the time to translate it for all of the fans of Ark out there 🙂


Thanks for all the work you have done so far !

Master of Disaster

Thanks for the hard work 🙂 I really love this series and I hope you will be able to finish it! ××× By the way, congrats on nearly hitting 2 million clicks ‘~’


Bet ark bangs lariat the in real life to show off to Alan


thanks for the fast update!


Thanks for all your hard work ^_^

Only wish is that the LMS machine translators could move at this speed 🙁 where barley half way why couldn’t it be in Chinese and the author didn’t stop them from translating it (Chinese is the easiest to use machine translation and fix, that’s why most LN translators like to wait tell the book come out in chinese then they translate it )


Yeah, but the reason is already said by LMS translator for why it is so slow. That LMS chapters are so huge that it takes a long time. I don’t think having it in chinese would make it quicker. 🙁


Thanks for your work on this, I thoroughly look forward to the new chapters that come and they come often! I always start my morning with this 🙂


Speaking of chinese novel, after being tired of waiting for the suuuppeeer slow update of lms, I’ve taken fancy in reading Coiling Dragon which is currently translated at Wuxia World. It is a good one, I guarantee. ^_^

Mohamed Afsar

Coiling dragon is Awesome! 😀 recently discovered it myself and yea, LMS is taking way too long. Zhan Long from Baka-Tsuki is also great


Thanks so much for your hard work to translate this novel
i really appreciate for fast update
and this novel really great especially the main character


Hi..Thanks for fast update. Appreciate your Hard work.


I have read so many sites from many translators. You work so far is the most outstanding among them. Not only your translating speed is amazing but the quality is also good. Thank you for your kindness. I really love this novel, although the main actor, Ark, is a bit too stingy.


stingy?weed is stingy.he has his mom’s medical bills to pay

Yumi Kateyou

Weed is not stingy! He had learn to save money to help support his family and pay for his grandma’s medical bills AND pay for his younger sister college.

Prestige Worldwide

Affection stats…. Can’t wait to see him use those skill points!!

Prestige Worldwide

Maybe they can be used to upgrade his summons skills


Thank you very much

Why did all the links just die?


It seems they were all region locked or something? Had to use a VPN to get them to open.



1st mwahahah


I wanted to thank You for translating this. I think Your the best and fastest from all the novels i read. Wish the guys from LMS would be as good as You cuz being better is next to impossible. Thank You again.
Best Regards


Wow, translations are really fast. I kind of feel guilty. Got a donation box? I don’t mind helping out.

[…] Site 2 […]


Thanks a lot for translating this! Ark is one of my favorite reads.


Thank you so much for translating this ! Was pretty sad when japtem dropped this but it is so great to know I won’t be left hanging! haha I’m so behind x.x but now I can binge read :O not sure if it’s a good thing but sure is exciting:P thanks again! (:


Is it really going to take a whole volume just for him to get his second profession??


Well most online games require a quest to change to the second profession. So it’ll probably take him a while to complete the quest.


Thanks for the good work. Im hoping that someday you finish this novel to its sequel you may take the translation project for Legendary Moonlight Sculptor.. Im really stuck at half assed understood google translate


they have till volume 24 (will be released after spellchecking)
and jawz started to go on at chapter 30 …


whats his second profession i thot
he was a dark walker


It said Dark Soul. I assume its going towards full darkness. So he started as a dark walker until he found the curse and became a dark soul. Now hes going to try to get the eternal soul and probably get a new title again i’d imagine.


Thanks for translating this story


turtle could you please put up the read all chapter link it makes it much easier to make a pdf of the volume rather than trying to copy and paste each chapter into a separate word document


thanks for the translations


200 comments woah!
