No longer posting to the Baka-Tsuki FB/Twitter – please follow our FB/Twitter accounts directly

Hi all,

This is a quick notice that our posting rights to the BT Facebook and Twitter accounts were revoked earlier this week – we were told the relationship was deemed not “mutually beneficial” by their FB admin, possibly because our updates were starting to get so frequent that we were essentially flooding their wall. I know a lot of readers for convenience just followed the BT social media accounts to get notified of our updates as well, but from now on you will have to follow our Facebook and Twitter directly for the most reliable way to get NDTL updates. Here they are:

A Collaboration? On THE Saekano?!

Hey all, exciting news!

Saekano will be seeing double the updates from now on! Yes, our new translator deadpan will be working alongside Steel to bring you more Saekano content. And here’s the juicy bit: deadpan will be continuing from the point after the anime—Volume 5! I know all you Saekano fans are dying to know of events beyond the anime, especially while we all wait for more news concerning Saekano Season 2.

Enough words, right? Let’s get to reading! Oh! Those of you who are Utaha fans will be happy to know this is a VERY Utaha-focused novel. Example illustration below. Don’t get too excited now!


NanoDesu Translations 33rd (Chinese) Project: My Girlfriend is a Mahou Shoujo!

We’re pleased to announce NDTL’s 33rd project, and our first Chinese novel translation, My Girlfriend is a Mahou Shoujo!

My Girlfriend is a Mahou Shoujo (Chinese Web Novel)
Link to Translation

Head Translator: victorrama

Novel Summary (from Wikipedia): “I don’t like you anymore.” Broken-hearted, Zhang Shaoyu went home with a sourness in his chest. It was the Nth time he got rejected by a girl, but little did he know his rather ‘ordinary’ life changed later that night. When he was sleeping, he was suddenly woken up in the middle of the night to see a beautiful girl floating in front of his balcony. Before he said anything, the girl vanished and began to battle someone high up in the sky–

The next morning, Zhang Shaoyu woke up on his sofa, remembering nothing of what happened that night, and went to school normally. However, later that day, a mysterious girl suddenly appeared before him.

“I want to be your girlfriend!”

A Chinese web novel? What? A lot of people might be a bit surprised by this. But there’s so much content being created over there that is not too far from the normal LN “feel” that it seems a waste to ignore everything. And victorrama has been a longtime member of our staff, is fluent in Chinese, so it was also a waste of his talents to not give him a chance.

Anyways, this story is about… actually you really don’t want to listen to me talk. I’ll let the translator explain instead:

So! My Girlfriend Is A Magical Girl (let’s say MagicalGF to make it easier) is a chinese original Web Novel (WN). But unlike Wu Xia or Xian Xia, this one is very similar to your usual japanese LN! It tells the tale of a rather ‘unfortunate’ boy who by a twist of fate meets a beautiful girl ( Who is secretly a magical girl/mage ! ). Sounds plain? Sounds cliche? You might want to read it before complaining, and see epic moments one after another! My Girlfriend Is A Magical Girl starts now!

Well, you heard the man. Get to reading! Also, be sure to provide feedback if you can, especially since this is our first (experimental) project in Chinese translations. Feedback is crucial not only for victorrama’s sake, but will also help us decide how best to service the fan community with these new translations.

Also, the hint solution is pretty short. The link URL was actually but ended up bringing you to type in into your address bar and voila.

WordPress comment bug fixed.

Hey all,

It came to our attention that a wordpress bug had disabled comments on some of our recent releases. Everything should have been fixed, so comments should be enabled everywhere. If you encountered this issue lately and was frustrated that you couldn’t post a comment somewhere, we apologize for the inconvenience.

New project opening this weekend! Here’s the hint.

Yup, another project opening with a new translator this weekend! We’ll be revealing the project this Saturday, but for now as usual here’s the hint puzzle! Solve it and find out the project title for yourself early!

See everyone again on Saturday!
