Novel Summary (from the back of the novel)
High school student Kanda Shun had always been incapable of imagining. Until one day, when he wished Princess Rosalie, resident heroine of the popular RPG game ‘Dragon Bless’ out into the real world! Havoc occurs as Princess Rosalie pries opened drawers, breaks vases and pots, and swings her a life-sized, ruby encrusted sword around at the first sign of danger. Furthermore, Rosalie declares, out of the blue, that Shun be her husband, and she would stop at nothing to bring him happiness. On top of that, Shun would have to deal with Nadeshiko, ruler and tyrant of his high school, as well as the over-affectionate and doting cousin, Mikoto!
How in the world was a guy to handle all of that?
This series has been long overdue for a translation, considering its first volume was published in 2006. And it has video games! And girls! What more could one ask for? For this project, we will be joined by a new translator, Lynx_lai. Please give her lots of support as she works hard to bring you this old-school slice-of-life romance adventure!
Suggestion thread closed. One of the suggestions in the comments has been chosen. Thanks everyone!
We recently accepted another translator into our midst, and this translator also would like a few project suggestions from you, the readers. Please give any suggestions as a comment to this thread – a summary and/or link to an info page would be appreciated.
Also, as a twist, the translator has requested that all suggested novels MUST HAVE A FEMALE MAIN CHARACTER. Please keep this in mind when you make your suggestions.
Our primary PDF/EPUB typesetter has created a survey to help him gain insight on what people think of our PDF/EPUBs. If you can find a bit of time (it’s a very short survey), please fill it out to help our typesetting effort!

Novel Summary (taken from Overlap Bunko): Why are we here? Why are we doing this?
Before Haruhiro had realized what happened, he was surrounded by darkness. Why was he here? Where was here?
Even now, he still didn’t know. Those around him were the same as him, no one remembered anything other than their own names. And when they emerged from the darkness, the world that awaited them seemed like something out of a videogame.
In order to survive, Haruhiro forms a party with the others, learns fighting skills, and as a soldier in the reserve force, takes his first steps into the world of Grimgal. What awaits him there, he doesn’t know…
This the story of an adventure born from the ashes.
Not only did this novel make it onto the Kono Light Novel wa Sugoi rankings after only one volume published (an impressive feat indeed), but it appears to be a more mature, sobering spin on the RPG/Novel crossover genre. We’re very excited to be the first to offer it to our English speaking audiences, and we hope you enjoy! Please go take a look and support this project!
Bring on the fanfare because the translation is done! Thanks to everyone who worked hard on the volume! Without further ado, here’s Volume 4 of Kore wa Zombie Desu ka? !!!
A very gentle reminder that PDFs and ePubs will only be made when all edits are completed! Enjoy the volume and get to reading!
After the licensing of NGNL, our translator Eternal Dreamer has been busy working on the opening of his new project. And today, we are pleased to announce that project as NanoDesu’s twentieth light novel translation project, Fate/Apocrypha!!
Fate/Apocrypha (Light Novel)
Link to Translation
Head Translator: Eternal Dreamer (collaboration with CanonRap)
Novel Summary (From Type-Moon Wiki): The setting of Fate/Apocrypha is a parallel world to Fate/stay night where the Greater Grail was removed from Fuyuki after the Third Holy Grail War and disappeared for many years. Around the 2000s, around the same time as the Fifth Holy Grail War would have happened, the group that plundered the Grail, Yggdmillennia, openly declares their secession from the Mage’s Association and that they are in possession of the Grail. The Association dispatches fifty magi to retrieve it, but all but one are instantly slaughtered by Lancer of Black. The one remaining manages to activate the reserve system of the Greater Grail, allowing for the summoning of fourteen Servants in total.
This marks the start of the Great Holy Grail War in Trifas, featuring two different factions: the Black Faction, whose members are part of Yggdramillennia, and the Red Faction, whose members were sent by the Mage’s Association with the exception of one from the Church. The Grail itself also summons Ruler to act as a mediator of the Holy Grail War.
Type Moon fans rejoice! As you can read in Eternal’s intro post on the translation site, Fate/Apocrypha has long been one of the novels he’s wanted to translate, and we are ecstatic to welcome it as our newest project. With this and the opening of the FSN remake this season, I’m sure Type Moon fans will have much cause for celebration. Even if you haven’t been introduced to the Fate universe, go and check it out! It promises to be an exhilarating ride.
This will also be ND’s first collaboration project ever; we will be working with CanonRap over at Quality Mistranslations to bring this novel to you readers; he has already finished Volume 1, so Eternal Dreamer will be starting from Volume 2.
Thanks as always for everyone’s continuing support!
