Presenting the first class of ND Academy!

Hi guys!

After weeks of gruelling debate, arguments and bridge-burning, we here at ND are joined by 5 students, who together form the first class of ND Academy! Let us welcome them all and cheer them on as they begin their perilous journey to becoming full-fledged pokemon translators. Once everyone gets oriented, you can also expect to see some of the fruits of their labor, so look forward to it!

Also, just a reminder that when ND Academy projects launch, we WILL NEED EDITORS FOR THEM (as well as for some other new projects we are planning)! So if you’re interested, please fill out an editor’s application (CLICK HERE!)

Without further ado, let’s introduce the cadets!

In alphabetical order:

Hello! My name is Cyneris, I am currently a college student in the US. I’ll leave my appearance to your imaginations >:D
Or maybe I’m just lazy. That’s up to your imagination too.
I’m starting off with ND as a ND Cadet, hopefully I’ll do well enough and learn enough so that I can join and help translate in the future! Genres that you can expect out of me are action with game elements to them and romances.

Man… I hate writing these things. I always get lazy with them. Wait… maybe my Bio can be me winning about my Bio?
I doubt I can get away with only one sentence so… I am Dark Ariel7. I will be your new Overlord. Since there are no cash donation in NanoDesu you will pay your tributes in the form of lavish praise. If they be lacking your end will be swift. Or not. It depends on how I’m feeling that day. You may go now…. Also keep your expectations low. That really helps me out.


Hello, hello. I’ve been a fan of manga for a long time but only got into LNs in the past 2 years. I usually spend my time learning pointless things and sleeping. Fun fact. I have never bought or owned an umbrella and prefer to just get wet in the rain. That’s a lie. I’m just too lazy to buy one. My dream is to become an idol, but the only thing getting in the way of that is my crappy hair.





Speak not the Kaylalyak. Draw not the Kaylalyak. Write not the Kaylalyak. Scuplt not the Kaylalyak. Sing not the Kaylalyak. Write not bios about the Kaylalyak.

But seriously, hi, I’m ridiculously new. So new I’m not even in yet.





I’m tsunnyday. I have obnoxiously high standards and get bored easily. In addition to my weeb hobbies, I like fighting games, ping pong, programming, food, and ponytails. I moonlight as a 1337 h4xx0r. Even though I can see the ending, this game is hella glitchy.

NanoDesu 30th Project: Re:Zero Kara Hajimeru Isekai Seikatsu

We here at NDTL are very excited to welcome our newest translator, Mr_Fwishayyy, who will be translating our 30th project, Re:Zero Kara Hajimeru Isekai Seikatsu! Thirty projects, wow!

Re:Zero Kara Hajimeru Isekai Seikatsu (Light Novel)
Link to Translation

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!

Hint for our next project opening.

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!

It’s another new project week!

Hey all,

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.
