Kusoge Online (BETA) – Volume 3

NOTE: This is a ‘whole volume’ release. All comments from prior partial release posts have been moved here, all partial releases have been deleted. This allows for easier management and fixing.

Volume 3 Cover

Merry Christmas, everyone!

And here it is, the entirety of volume 3. This includes the epilogue and the small extra chapter at the very end of volume 3.

Regarding categorization there’s something new: I’ve decided to delete all partial releases upon reaching the whole volume release, since I won’t bother updating every partial release in case something changes which already happened a few times over and quite frankly, I don’t see the point in keeping them. With this, there’s no Kusoge spam in the the database either, so you’re more likely to get relevant search results if you use the search function.

I’m also gonna move all comments on relevant partial release posts to their respective volume release post and archive whatever I’ve written on partial releases. In case that sounds confusing, just check out the posts for volume 1 and volume 2 and you’ll get the idea.

With all that said, I don’t really have time to move stuff right now, all I’m gonna do is give you volume 3 and clean up at a later point.

Regarding volume 4, the author seems to be writing it currently, this tweet confirms that MF Bunko J greenlit it, so it’s just taking them forever.

So we’ve caught up with Japan in this regard, they dunno more about this series than you do.

And I’ve run out of stuff to translate, I might have another surprise release for you guys one of these days – I’ll leave it at “might” since I’ve no idea whether I can actually see it through or not. ¯\_( ´∀`)_/¯ On top of that I do still have volume 1 of Kusoge‘s manga adaption lying around here. Is there a translation yet? I might put a script out there, but it’s a pain in the ass to work with hardcopies and I‘ve little experience with translating manga. Point is, if I do it, it’ll be nothing but a script, someone else would’ve got to put the text into the speech bubbles.

That’s all from me for now, hope you‘ve been enjoying the buggy ride so far; leave a comment if you like!

EDIT: Comments have been moved, posts have been merged and partial releases deleted. No more fragmentation, yay!

  1. By the way, have you recovered from your sickness and back pain? If you had not then I hope you get well soon.

    On another note, what is the current status of the translation for Kusoge Online (BETA)? After all, it had been almost 3 months since your last update. Anyway, I look forward to reading the future translations for Kusoge Online (BETA) as your translations for it are excellent.

  2. Oh my god, what the heck, get out of here! A chapter which is somewhat sane!

    Quick, we need Azazel to make a mistake or we won’t have enough to meet her usual quota.

    • I guess the emphasis here is on “somewhat,” lol.

      1) Sasaraki staring down his own, well, “daughter”
      2) Kirine being as full of life (or booze) as ever
      3) Azrael wanting to drink Sasaraki’s… milk

      I guess Azrael not being batshit crazy makes it sane? =D

      But, man, it broke my heart when they told Kisara her shitty, long-ass name XD

  3. 🐭🐮🐯🐰🐲🐍🐴🐑🐵🐥🐶🐗

    thanks for the translation… suck his milk.. ( ͡° ͜・・ ͡° )

  4. btw, why do you have to make each part/chapter into pdf tho.. just put directly in your site, maybe make another exclusive page for pdf..
    that way you’ll have more readers / feedbacks

    • You’re welcome, emoji guy. ;P

      ‘Cause there are sites out there who crawl translations like mine, put them on their own site, and charge money for and/or make revenue through with ads off of them. A secured PDF is just my way of trying to protect my own “work.”

      If that’s too high a hurdle for potential readers… well, can’t be everyone’s darling ;P

      • I’m just glad that I get to continue using a PDF Reader that I found a long time ago. Sumatra PDF. It might not look like much, but it’s low resource, works quickly, and looks clean. Best of all, it’s free. With all of those good points, I experience a rush of happiness every time I come across a PDF to open.

  5. Between the two remaining candidates, I think either would work due to vast amounts of gullibility.

    I really like how they think that the newcomer has totally lost it though.

    • I like how they think being insane is an upside. :> Guess it’s more fun to die through a buggy game if your captain’s just as crazy as the game.

  6. Thanks for your hard work and thanks bringing this wonderful novel to english so that we can read this!,

    BTW, can i make a epub file?, i’m not fan of pdf so i always read it using epub.

    • Thanks for reading! I understand and share your opinion, I prefer ePUB over other formats, too.

      However, I‘m not using PDF ‘cause I like it, I‘m using it since other sites ripped my translations and made a profit off of them. PDF is my last resort avoiding to quit doing this out of the frustration that some assholes steal my free service to enrich themselves.

      That also means I prefer having full control myself, so if there‘ll be an ePUB version, I‘d do it myself. That, however, requires me to get familiar with the format‘s possibilities and all dem “hows.“ That might or might not happen in the future.

      tl;dr: I‘d rather have things stay the way they are – at least for the time being

  7. Yo, if you want to put the translation on the manga, how about contacting me in novelupdates? My id there is Ai chan (not Ai-chan). As for why I’m doing it, it’s because this story is fun. Let’s do a collab if you haven’t found anyone yet.

    • Yeah, I kinda have too much stuff to do these days to wrap my head around something I haven’t done before, but I’ll let you know if the times comes.
