Head Translator: Mr_Fwishayyy
Novel Summary (source jCafe): Suddenly high school student Subaru Natsuki has been summoned to another world on the way back from the convenience store. With the biggest crisis of his life being summoned to another world and no sign of the one who summoned him, things become worse when he is attacked. But when he is saved by a mysterious silver-haired girl with a fairy cat, Subaru cooperates with the girl to return the favor. When they finally manage to get a clue, Subaru and the girl are attacked and killed by someone. Subaru then awakens in the place he was summoned and notices he gained the ability “Returns by Death.” A helpless boy that only has the ability to rewind time by dying. And beyond the despair can he save the girl from the fate of death?
A reincarnation fantasy-action novel, you say? Pretty sparkly artwork, you say? Anime adaptation, you say? Where do I sign up?! But yes, we will be picking up the translation of Re:Zero, and more specifically the light novel, not the web novel version. This means prettier illustrations and a more fluid, organized story, so what more could you ask for?
Our translator Mr_Fwishayyy is new to the ND family, and to the translation game in general. As such, be sure to thank him for his efforts but he’d also appreciate feedback on his work! We’re all here to learn and improve, after all :). But most of all, we hope you enjoy this new, thrilling series.
(PS: The answer to this time’s hint – solve each of the clues, and find that the answers correspond to words in the Data column plus an extra letter. Rearrange the extra letters in order of the clues given and it spells out REZERO.)
Now stop getting distracted and get to reading!
Right on time, here is the hint for the identity of our next project! Who will figure it out this time?
By the way, if you do solve the puzzle (which some people already have), please don’t post the answer in a comment!
We’re super excited to pre-announce that we will have another project opening this weekend! Stay tuned for the awesomeness. As usual, hint will be posted Friday.
