Sword Saint (manga): 36 raws on Apr 3
Hooray, 50 chapters of SJ!
A little later than originally planned, sorry for the wait.
Just a note, this chapter is technically “The Pride of the Powerful (4 part 1)”, which would make the next chapter “The Pride of the Powerful (4 part 2)”, but I think that’s kind of silly and am just making this one (4) and the next one (5).
Sorry it’s later than we intended, just been hard to work on stuff with the upheaval from COVID-19 affecting our daily lives.
Not exactly how I would’ve liked to end my experience with MS, but at the same time it helps me justify dropping it.
So yeah, this is the last chapter of Maou Saikon I’ll be translating. It started out pretty good, but didn’t go in the direction I was hoping, and just got less and less interesting to me as I kept going. I’m sorry to all the fans out there wanting to read more, but at least now maybe someone with more time on their hands can take over and put out chapters more often than once every few months D:
I had actually picked up a series to take MS’s place late last year, but I didn’t realize that another group had already picked it up. They also seem to have dropped it, but until I catch up to where they left it, I won’t be releasing what I’ve done. In the meantime, I’m still doing manga with Deer B, and I can try to get more SJ out as well. Each chapter is frickin’ long, but I’m still invested enough to keep going, for now 😡
Anywho, in these times of coronavirus uncertainty, stay inside and read more! Remember that the point of self-isolation is to keep your entire community safe; to protect the young, the elderly, and the immunocompromised; and to stop from overburdening your health care system. If you do end up needing to be treated for something serious or urgent, it would be great if your health care providers had the energy and room to treat you, right? 🙂
Sorry we can’t offer a more meaty dose of Mira during everyone’s self-quarantine, but hopefully this’ll put a smile on your face anyway! Stay healthy!
Eyyy, I got another chapter done, go me \o/
Just a reminder that I have not given permission to any sites to host my English translations, so please read on our WordPress blog, URL above (mobofdeer.wordpress.com). It’s free, and you can install an ad blocker and read with no ads. However, I have been approached about translating to other languages using my English translations as a base. You can find links in the series page, because I generally have no problem with this.
Next, I received an e-mail requesting to commission me to translate more SJ chapters faster. While I’m very flattered, to be perfectly clear, I translate in my free time, and I have a full-time job that I enjoy and also takes up most of my time. Getting some side cash would not motivate me to translate more. I’m sorry if my pace is slower than probably most of you would like, but that’s just how it is. If you can convince a different translator to pick up the series, they might be able to do it faster.
Anyway, that’s enough of that, enjoy a greater pleasure than any offered in a brothel: war! (Subtle reminder that Westworld Season 3 starts next week!)
Kind of nice chapter. If I liked this series more, I might appreciate it. As things stand, I’m just happy it was pretty easy to translate ;x
Now, let’s see how many months it takes me to get through SJ…
I’m so sleepy today… can’t think of a cute or clever one-liner for this chapter… zzz…
HOLY SHIT!!! THERE’S A NEW SJ CHAPTER?!?!?
Yes, I really was still working on it. No, it ain’t going to speed up any time soon. If anyone is interested in taking over the series… go for it, I don’t have the ability to commit to it, unfortunately. Otherwise, I’ll just keep slowly translating and slowly posting more chapters as I find time to.

I hear you guys like violence.
Just a short celebration chapter for the release of manga volume 3. Chapter 33 will be out in a week or two.
