Rakudai Kishi no Eiyuutan

Rakudai Kishi no Eiyuutan

In a time and place where one's soul can be morphed into a weapon, there are modern-day magicians called mage-knights. Although Ikki Kurogane is a student at an institution that trains mage-knights, he has no particular talent in magic and is labeled the "Failed Knight" or "Worst One." Getting way less than average marks in the scorings, he was forced to repeat a year. But with the arrival of a new head of the institution, a new rule was created: knights whose abilities are compatible, as decided by the board, must share rooms and attend practice and training together throughout their school years to bring up their abilities to the max. It was a rule to implement the absolute verdict of ability.
Ikki's roommate, Stella Vermillion, turns out to be a princess of a foreign country. Stella is an A-Rank knight, the type of genius in magic who only appears once a decade. When Ikki walked in on her while she was changing her clothes, it caused a huge misunderstanding, which eventually ended up in a duel between the two of them. The punishment for the loser is eternal submission to the winner.
Forced to live in the same room and practice magic together throughout all their school years, how will Stella and Ikki's relationship evolve?

    1. They'll be put here when they're available, probably. You see the chapter names and the "Continue reading" link, right? Take a guess.

    1. It's just that there's nothing to read yet. You should be able to tell by the fact that the chapter titles haven't been made into links yet.

    1. So you want to help? Then it would help if people don't whine about when the next chapter will come, etc. And perhaps buying us a pizza since we are hungry most of the time, of course, no pineapple pizza.

  21. Thanks for the translations. Just to ask, where do you guys get your raws from? I've been wanting to try translating my own but I can't get ahold of any of the novels.

    1. I usually buy digital copies from Bookwalker. There are also places such as Kobo, amazon and such. (Though the last one has crappy quality pictures). Although do note that they are DRM'd (digital protected) so you can only read it. If you want to take illustration or text, you need to first remove the drm. Kobo is probably the easiest to do in that regard. You just need to google.

  22. I hope this isn't a rude question to ask but on bakatsuki there are some chapters that also appear here, and they are different (i checked), my question is wich version should i read? normally i would just read the one that was translated last, but i don't know the dates

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. The ones on Baka-Tsuki are taken from here and further edited/reworded to match the formatting of the project guidelines there. There shouldn't be too much differences aside from some rewordings, so you can read whichever style you like better.

  23. I've been waiting for a long time a traduction for the novel, thank you very much, really. Note: I'm studying Japanese so in the near future I'll try and help too!

    I wish the team good luck with the translation, may the pizzas be with you!

  50. Thank you for all of the hard work and time put into translating this Light Novel. So far, I can say that this is my favorite. Can't wait for the FINAL BATTLE!

  51. Can't wait for this battle,I really don't think ikki will win. I'm thinking best case scenario it's a draw

    1. Nah, there's no way it would end in a draw. Honestly Ikki probably wins because plot armor, but Stella should seemingly steamroll him.

  53. why would I do that? I'm literally putting someone elses work on this scene which is going to do the exact same thing. I also have a part time job at a translation group and we really hate it when sites like readlightnovel and wuxia.co copy paste the chapters

    1. My bad. Guess my impatience prevented me from seeing that. Looks like I'll just wait for Frozensama and the crew to finish it.

    2. What a jerk. Frozen and the other translators are doing all of this for us, using their own time and hard work. They said they are still translating, and will resume after their RL stuff is resolved. So be patient, be thankful, and wait.

    4. um.. dear sir, please calm your tatas down. I've seen these kind of comments many too often in other fandoms too, it would be best if we don't put pressure to our humble translator-san over there, it could be worse. It's better for our mutual understanding not to repeat history ever again, don't you think so?

  56. read some xianxia novels if you want brutal killing yet op

  57. Thank you all for your hard work, i read the first half of volume 9 here and the second on jasonwonderblog and its just so amazing that i'll have to read it again when you finished translating it.

    PD: Looking forward to volume 10 eventually, thanks again for the translations.

  58. Thank you very much for your hard work translating this light novel !
    Don't ever think about dropping it :D

    Few questions:
    How many volumes does it have in total ?
    Did the author "Riku Misora" already finish it or is it still ongoing ?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Another question:
      If the later volumes are way more interesting than the first ones, then why did the anime adaption stop at the mere volume 3 ?

      Delete
  59. The anime adaption didn’t do too well in Japan. Because of this, the studio that produced the anime (sorry forgot the name) decided it wouldn’t be in their best interest to continue the series. This happens a lot in the anime industry. Anime production isn’t cheap after all. Most of the time, the anime adaptions sole purpose is to advertise the light novel or manga, and therefore do not get a continuation. Only the most popular animes (SAO, Seven Deadly Sins, HS DxD, etc) rake in enough profit (through merchandise sales, DvD’s, and increased book sales ) to get another season. I agree that the later volumes are more interesting than the introduction chapters, but whether the studio decides to continue the show or not is out of our hands, sadly. Hope this helped.
