Shen Yin Wang Zuo, Chapter 359


Shen Yin Wang Zuo, Chapter 359: Aria of the Goddess of Light (II)

Long Haochen without hesitation gave a categorical rejection, “My age is not important.”

Ye Weiyang looked startled. She rarely encountered people that would reject her, after all, it wasn’t by sheer luck that she managed to gain the position of chief auctioneer of the Alliance’s Great Auction House. Being a dual user of the mental and light attributes, she reached the conclusion that even becoming a Demon Hunter wasn’t any problem given her innate skills. Moreover, she had all the more confidence in her own charm.

“My apologies, then you may get started.” Ye Weiyang declared in a low voice, while retreating some steps.

Long Haochen slowly opened the wooden case. He looked at that heavy sword while both of his hands reached for the case.

Seeing this behaviour, Ye Weiyang looked more relaxed. Long Haochen’s movement looked simple, but was a sign of respect towards a weapon. This simple behaviour gave him a respectable look.

Four fingers of his left hand were placed on the sword’s tip, and with the help of his thumb, he pinched the pearl on it. If it was an ordinary sword, he should have pinched the whole sword to avoid cutting himself. His right hand was however braced on the sharp part, and not the handle.

This detail seemed very simple, but was exclusive to knights. Only a true knight knew about this sign of respect towards a godly weapon. For this reason, when Ye Weiyang saw Long Haochen do so, she felt extremely hopeful deep inside.

Could this person really let the godly sword reappear to the light? If that’s so…

Thinking to this point, Ye Weiyang couldn’t help but reminisce about the words her grandfather had told her before.

A supreme powerhouse wouldn’t necessarily be the one to obtain the godly sword, but the most likely to succeed would be someone who was connected to the godly sword by fate. Could this man be that fated person? For some reason, Ye Weiyang’s heartbeat quickened, because she already had the faint sensation of that possibility.

Feng Lineg’er who was holding the wooden case with both her hands lifted it high as Long Haochen approached it. She felt very curious regarding him. Hearing his voice and seeing his stature, he should be quite a young knight.

Nonetheless, her look only contained curiosity. Despite her simple elegance in normal times, and the purity of her pretty skin, she actually had an ardent heart. Long Haochen’s size of one meter eighty, which made him look like an ordinary youth, couldn’t arise too great an interest in her, as that wasn’t her type.

Right in the opposite, the charming Ye Weiyang filled with mature charms was in her bones a very conservative girl.

This was precisely the kind of person that couldn’t be judged by their appearance.

Regarding the observation of Ye Weiyang and Feng Ling’er, Long Haochen looked as though he didn’t sense anything, looking straight at the godly sword before him.

In the instant right before that case was opened, when Long Haochen sensed the aura coming from it, he felt his entire soul being drawn by this divine sword. Given his superior perception, he could even sense the many changes on the godly sword.

This sword was not simply a sealed weapon. In some sense, this weapon was already dead.

How could a weapon die? When a true godly weapon lost its soul, it would reach the end of its life.

Long Haochen was completely sure that this godly sword before him had possessed its own soul in the past.

Weapons with a soul were soul-owning weapons, but what did this mean? It implied that the weapon in question would be at least a powerful existence reaching the Epic Tier.

In other words, the godly sword before Long Haochen had long before been a piece of Epic Tier Equipment.

However, now that it had lost its own soul, Long Haochen was filled with even more respect for it.

He could make the guess that on the day the owner of that godly sword had died and it was sealed, its soul had discarded its own body, only leaving an empty sword shell behind, as the soul of the sword itself followed its master to the other world.

To affect his sword’s soul so strongly that it died along with him. One could well imagine how powerful its previous master had been. Who wouldn’t have respect for this kind of person and this kind of loyal sword soul.

Long Haochen was in that moment not calm at all. His movements were extremely slow, out of fear of profaning this godly sword. The reason why he came forward was not to obtain this godly sword, but out of his desire to dispel its seal. Just like Ye Weiyang said, this godly sword shouldn’t be left in the darkness of a box, but should regain its light.

Under the support of Long Haochen’s two hands, this pitch-black sword slowly left its wooden box. Long Haochen’s eyes were glued to the sword. Not pouring any spiritual energy, he just looked calmly at it. His gaze was peaceful, but also sad. Even with the mask concealing his face, the nearby Ye Weiyang could feel his current state of mind, as his limpid golden eyes were not covered by the mask.

Seeing the expression in his eyes, Ye Weiyang sensed that he was in complete symbiosis with the bleak aura spreading out from the godly sword.

Ye Weiyang’s heartbeat sped up. Before Long Haochen appeared, everyone who tried to obtain the sword, had activated their spiritual energy as quickly as possible to either control the sword or forcibly remove the seal. However, all those who did so had failed. Thus, Long Haochen didn’t chose to do the same, and against all expectations, he tried to interact with the godly sword.

Feng Ling’er, who removed the wooden box to the side, had an even more curious look. Taking a furtive glance at Ye Weiyang, she only saw her gazing at the man before her, not blinking an eye.

It seemed as if time had stopped. The spectators who regained their sight sat back on their chairs one after another, watching Long Haochen with a calm look. They were also very curious about whether this person would be able to dispel the seal on the sword. Back then, that light element truly astonished quite a lot of them. The better one’s understanding of the light element was, the greater their instantaneous shock at that time.

“Yating!” Long Haochen gave a quiet call.

An even more astonishing scene appeared. With a glint of golden light, a golden, almost human-sized silhouette suddenly appeared in front of Long Haochen. Although the current Yating didn’t have the six wings on her back, her sudden appearance and the dense light emanated by her, as well as her shining body, truly were stunning. Even Ye Weiyang and Feng Ling’er almost turned pale at seeing the purity and the softness of the light essence released by her.

Long Haochen stretched out his hands and presented the sword to Yating.

Yating sensed his intentions and hurriedly stretched out her hands, just like Long Haochen had done right before.

“This… This is…” Ye Weiyang suddenly covered her mouth, almost unable to mask her shock in spite of her unswerving determination.

Yating was facing Long Haochen, and the audience at his back. Thus, those who saw her back were only Ye Weiyang and Feng Ling’er. They could clearly see that on Yating’s back, six wings were tightly folded. They were also the one’s who most clearly sensed the absolutely pure light element coming from her.

Is this a Light Elemental Fairy? Ye Weiyang was shocked to the extreme. Given her profound knowledge, she knew a lot about Light Elemental Fairies. However, to her knowledge, she had never heard of a Light Elemental Fairy that would look so similar to a real person.

Yating made contact with the heavy sword, and the instant it touched her hand, the sword unexpectedly made a slight buzzing sound. The buzzing noise wasn’t loud, but clear and melodious like a dragon chant, and resounded in the whole auction hall.

Yating was also startled, because she clearly sensed that after grasping this heavy sword, she received an amiable reaction. That heavy sword actually seemed somewhat dependant on her.

Long Haochen retreated a few steps. Making a fist with his right hand, he kowtowed, placing it on his chest to give a standard knight salute to the sword.

“A godly sword shouldn’t remain covered by dust. I sensed your grievance and your pain, but the past is the past. If your master was still alive, he would definitely not be willing to see your sword soul follow him to the afterworld, and leave your splendor concealed. Ever since the day you gained a soul, you should have remained in a knight’s hand, using your sharpness to overcome all obstacles obstructing your way, and eradicate the evil to fight for justice. To fight and to protect every person that needs to be protected. Your light has to reappear in the human world, and your sharpness has to return to terrify the enemies. Please come back, sword soul in demise. Let your splendor reappear back on earth, and the power of light sweep away all darkness. Perhaps I am not fit to become your master, but I am willing to awaken you and let you choose a more fitting master.”

Long Haochen’s words were clearly filled with passion, full of austerity and pride. Despite the youth of his voice, it carried a resounding bloodlust. With a slight reeking of blood, a great pride was expressed by this simple speech.

Yating was kneeling down, supporting the heavy sword with her hands before Long Haochen. This time, he didn’t use both of his hands to take it, but reached out with his right hand to grab its handle with force.

At this moment, Haochen’s face portrayed a number of different fleeting emotions.Hard to describe traits came out from Long Haochen. As he suddenly held the sword high, one could immediately see a gaudy white light erupt from his hand, which was instantly absorbed by that heavy sword.

A holy aura even more pure and dense than all the holy aura he had emanated before erupted, and the nearby Feng Ling’er and Ye Weiyang saw that on the forehead of Long Haochen’s mask a dense golden glint appeared. It seemed as if nine bright patterns emerged.

“Buzz.”This gaudy light spread out with intense buzzes, and right then, in front of Long Haochen, Yating suddenly made a move. Spreading the six wings on her back at the same time, her body shrank fast, returning to the size of a third of a meter. She floated above Long Haochen’s shoulder and started chanting a slow incantation. She emitted soft golden ripples spreading to Long Haochen’s body, which caused the gaudy incandescent light on his hand to gain intensity.

“In the name of the Goddess of Light, break, dusty seal!” Long Haochen’s resounding voice echoed once again.


  • Deaglestyle

    Thx for the another great chapter

  • Ragnarok

    One more to gooooo

  • Evilage

    Ita kind of sad that we are left with such a cliff and have to wait for 2-3 days, but thus is life.
    I really want to see the reactions of everyone there, mostly his mental waifu(Ye Weiyang)(open to better suggestions).

    • Robin

      You won’t need to wait long. Someone was really generous. ^^

      • Evilage

        It seems so, i dunno who you are(oh wait i do Terri I, James H, Milton S) i love all three of you, you might have done it for your own self benefit but by doing it you have helped a large nber of souls, therefore may you live peacefully in this world without any conflicts.

        • Robin

          And probably some other noble soul. ^^
          At the moment we have a run without breaks. But the arc is worth it.

          • Evilage

            I can imagine the hard work that is done for the translations, i can barely write 3000 word(english) eassy in 2 days, and toto (and his team?) Does it all in a day. I’d probably die from lack of sleep.

          • Robin

            Well, there are some sleepless nights spent on getting everything ready in time. But I can say that I enjoy it if the readers are happy, and I think the same is true for Toto, since he is doing even more work as the support crew.

          • Evilage

            I’m gonna stop talking before this conversation takes a weird turn. Always happens in my conversations(mainly because of me but who can blame me?)

          • Robin

            You as a person seem a little weird but no worries, we like you anyway. 😛

          • Evilage

            Hey, in a world like this weird is the best thing you can ever be.

          • Robin

            Depends on the surrounding. But since mages tendentially seem to be a little weird, you absolutely fit the bill. 😛

          • Evilage

            That gives me a warm happy feeling in my chest(i am not cut out to be an author)

          • Robin

            But your writing seems perfectly alright. No one here expects poems or philosophical disputes. ^^

          • Jonathan Hurd

            I heard the conversation was weird and it seemed right for the Assassin to poke his head in :P.

            Speaking of weird I find it more fun to be weird than normal. It lets you see and say things people might have never imagined. It leads to some interesting places, imo.

          • Robin

            Woah, the Assassin ambushed us! By the way, nice listening skills, Mr. Assassin. Anyone mentions the word weird and you appear, most fitting, I have to admit. 😛

            Everyone can be normal, but being weird definitely spices things up. Especially if your friends are as weird as you are and understand you.

          • Jonathan Hurd

            One of the things I have always personally enjoyed is hearing other peoples opinions and thoughts. That is also one of the reasons I play Player versus Player in games, :D. I know what I will try and do and what strategies I can come up with. Its fun to see what everyone else can come up with and thinks about. It means there are always surprises waiting around the corner for me to enjoy.

          • Robin

            I found your talk about DHS positions also very enlightening. It was a lot of fun and nice to read. 😉
            I like to watch people and chat with them to see their reaction as well. You learn more about the people surrounding you that way, which is interesting.

          • Evilage

            You are not the only one, i also love your reactions to the comments(no i’m not a stalker so don’t worry)
            An example is the last chapters reaction to ah’bao comming for marriage xD

          • Robin

            Well, you live a little too far away for me to be worrying about stalking. So no issue there.
            Hahaha, there was nothing else to say about a comment like this. The thought alone is hilarious!

          • leopold1983

            Huhu a get together weirdo meeting! Count me in! Here comes the golden week or dream week? I guess for Totobro it’s gonna be a hell of a week.
            Be strong Totobro!

          • Robin

            Isn’t every meeting of our crazy little bunch a weirdo meeting? Welcome nonetheless, we are funny and don’t bite (that often).
            It will be a hard week with probably little sleep and many letters dancing in front of our eyes. 😉

    • felix

      Battle Waifu, Soul Waifu, House Waifu? (lol)

      • Jonathan Hurd

        Death Waifu is best waifu, imo. Though Loli Life Waifu is pretty nice too.

        • Evilage

          Why death waifu? She isnt that young as LHC so she cannot be a loli…

          • Jonathan Hurd

            I put down Cai’er as Death Waifu since she is death element. Ye Xiaolei as Life Waifu because of life element. Hmm Demon Waifu would be Yue Ye. Then we now have this Ye Wieyang for mental Waifu….

            I’m still debating what to describe Hao Yue as. Maybe call him Captain Waifu because he is a mixture of all the elements, :D.

          • Evilage

            Nah just make haoyue the avatar waifu

      • Evilage

        How does any of those names get along with Ye Weiyang?

  • Majk

    I was honestly expecting LHC to put the light soul from BRHL into this sword to make the blade wake up again and also to make BRHL into twin swords as they used to be.
    Bringing the swords soul back form the underworld is a way cooler solucion and it will give him 2 swords with enormus power so I have no compalins about this.

    • Jonathan Hurd

      When they mentioned the sword’s soul died I was also thinking maybe he called Yating to inject BRHL’s soul into it, but yeah the revival is way cooler a move in my book. Betting he is getting this blade and will now have three swords with souls, lol.

      • Evilage

        Why not inject his own soul into it? That way he becomes the sword, and he can control it just with thoughts, that’d be cool.

  • Majk

    So he will probably get the sword for free or in exchange for another Devil Dragon Crystal (since they can’t afford to pay 20 million for it) but now he will have to pay for the roof.
    In the real world he would probably also get sued by someone claming that he damaged their eyes with his light show earlier.

    • Zerosion

      It was noted that the sword could be paid of in increments.

      Finding the sword a master was more important then money to the lady.

      • Majk

        Forgot about that 😛 He might still get it for free after not only unsealing it but also bringing its soul back.

        • Jonathan Hurd

          If not just pay the money they got then get has drugs bro to sell them some pills for the rest :P.

    • Blaxus

      It was said that the auction hall would cover a third of the price if the sword was unsealed.

      • Majk

        Man I forgot to much about this auction.

        • Jonathan Hurd

          Lol, I think a Devil Dragon Crystal is definitely way more pricey than this sword. I think it might be gifted after this sheer display and as thanks for helping the sword.

  • Dragon

    So yea he’s getting a new sword my only question is what will he do when he con use bluerain again will he just not use this one? It would seem like a waste if he did also i hope this sword survives the sword breaker known as LHC.

    • Majk

      He does use 2 swords very often plus he seems to pull BLHL only when he needs to so this would be his primary sword.

      • Dragon

        Very true and in any case it could always let the retainer knight of his use it sence LCH broke his bright discipline.

        • Majk

          I am no sure if he could since this sword chooses its master it will proabbly only be used by the said master like BRHL and LHC.

          • Dragon

            Might be able to use it if and it his is just me thinking that yang tan fuses with the sword and maybe like that anyone can use the sword and since this sword is so strong in light element it might not brake from doing so and might just become stronger. But like I said this is just my theory. Yangtan is LHC,s light fairy but in an emergency he might fuse her with the sword at that time it could be possible for anyone in LHC’s team to use the sword.

          • Majk

            I hope not. All of LHC weapons fusing with Yating would be lame and would mean that after someone seals her (like someone using a great prophecy technique) LHC would be in big trouble.
            LHC was not very happy when it happend to BRHL.

          • Jonathan Hurd

            To be fair considering how strong that great prophecy technique is if the only thing it manages to do is seal Yating that would be pretty lucky right there.

          • Majk

            Maybe the sword won’t go to LHC sine it is only Epic tier. Just like with his partner even the most soughafter Starlight Unicorn was not good enough for LHC. BRHL is an mystical tier equipment so its good but this might not be unless it also groes together with its owner.
            It would be possible that Han Yu would get this although I doubt this theory myself.

          • Jonathan Hurd

            To be fair they did say it was at least Epic Tier since it has the soul. From the way people have been talking about it I think it might be of even higher ranking otherwise there wouldn’t be so many legends. The other thing is since it has a Soul it might be possible for this soul to grow as well.

            I think you might be right about LHC not being able to pass it off if it fuses with him. On the bright side LHC still needs BRHL to recover and even when it does he usually uses that to restrain enemies then needs a second sword to follow up attack. So it will not go to waste even if LHC gets it.

  • Dragon

    Side note for Totobro I am getting the Error 502 message when I tried to load this chapter and the preview if you could check it out I would appreciate it Thank You.

    • Robin

      Yeah, I had the same problem at first. I already told Toto about it, but it seems to be ok now.

    • me too for the past hour, but it finally got sorted out, the site reworks now.

  • leopold1983

    Thank you Totobro and sponsor Frederico J

  • Psyside

    Epic? I thought its legendary…. Dam..(internal dissapointment). Eather this sword somehow becomes legendary OR IT WILL DIE xD

    • Majk

      Epic is above legendary

      • Psyside

        really? I thought it was epic and then legendary. In every game its like that.
        Epic- Purple
        Legendary- Orange

        • Majk

          The order goes like this ordinary equipment, alloy equipment, magical equipment, spiritual equipment, glorious equipment, legendary equipment, epic equipment, immortal equipment, and mystical tier equipment.

          • Psyside

            you sure? where does it say that?

          • Majk

            Add /wiki-equipment-and-tiers/ to totobro com to see it

          • Psyside

            Oh i see k Ty for clarifying

          • Majk

            You’re welcome 🙂

          • Jonathan Hurd

            They went over it at one point in a chapter waaaaay back. I go to the wiki like Majk pointed out to check every now and again.

            It is a bit confusing especially since they have Divine Artifacts as well and Demonic Divine Artifacts. Those also have their own rankings as well….

    • Evilage

      Most people hate when i do this but i got little grammar nazi inside me so here goes.
      Either* 😀

  • Jonathan Hurd

    You know I just realized that maybe the chapter title is not actually the swords name, but describing this pillar that LHC is using to awaken it. Still like the nickname of Eternal Requiem though.

    • Evilage

      Oh i see, then the title seems a bit off due to the of, maybe Aria OF the goddess of light > Aria the goddess of light. The latter one suits it better.

      • Robin

        No, the title is right as it is. ^_^

        • Evilage

          Well if you say so 😡
          It still does seem a bit odd, so i’m gonna guess its the direct translation from chinese

          • Robin

            It does sound a little strange, but it will soon be explained. I was also tempted to suggest the different title at first, but it would not be correct.

          • Evilage

            If so i’ll eagerly wait untill the title is explained, thanks for the help btw. It would’ve bothered me a lot.

          • Robin

            I can imagine. I won’t spoil, but I understand the urge to get an explanation for something that intriguing.

          • Evilage

            Oh yeah, i read around 4-5 novels and mostly everything is on cliffs :'<
            It isnt bad as the time toto cliffed that LHC and Cai'er hug chapters but still, i'm gonna go read another translation ongoing series so i can be stuck in a cliff again.

          • Jonathan Hurd

            I know right? At least we know we’ll get to see the next part at most in three days for this one. I am not sure how we’re going to hold for another week from the cliff in DD, lol.

          • Luke Confidential

            The same way we always do.

            Desperately clinging to the edge of the cliff lest we fall into the abyss and lose our sanity.

            Or worse read a machine translation.

          • Evilage

            If you stare into the abyss, the abyss stares back

          • Jonathan Hurd

            If you read the machine translation, the machine translation reads you….

          • Evilage

            I tried to read machine translations of a few series. Apart from ATG, i was only able to barely read 100 chapters of the other series, not having details suck, as for atg i needed to know the story, there was a way too big cliff, but now i know the story and its amazing(not reading the current translations as i know what happens and all but after a large number of chapters get released i’m gonna read it, genius!)

          • leopold1983

            Oh yeah. I lost hope on DD after checking a few weeks. Then i was really surprised that I was 6 chapter late. And now im back kn the edge of the cliff too..

          • Jonathan Hurd

            Lol, at least you are not alone, :D. We can hang from it together.

          • Robin

            Not a nice cliff this time, but better than the last, I guess. But they made a mistake in the last chapter. Rongrong does have a spirit bone. After the tournament, she received the skull bone Tang San had taken from the annoying Dream-guy, who wanted to kill him. The chapter stated that she was more vulnerable because she had no spirit bone. The author really forgets details about his own stories…

          • Luke Confidential

            I saw that as well. Though maybe Rongrong’s Skull Bone doesn’t qualify for augmenting physical resilience?

            I don’t recall which location Oscar’s bone fills.

          • leopold1983

            Oscar bone is also a skull bone.

          • Luke Confidential

            Heh, so much for that explanation.

            Though it might be related to Rongrong’s bone being illusion based while Oscars is based on physical transformation? One is purely mental while the other is primarily [but perhaps not purely] physical?

          • Jonathan Hurd

            I think honestly the author might have just fudged it, lol. I don’t think it will really effect results much anyways since the head bone seems more about focusing your thoughts than hardening your body.

            What I am waiting for is Oscar to finally use his 5th spirit ability. He was bragging about it as being a trump card and now he doesn’t pull it out, O.o?

          • Luke Confidential

            It might be a trump card with high battle power but no benefit in this sort of trial.

          • leopold1983

            LoL I think skull bone are also getting on my head because I just though of another meaning.

            Oscar’s bone could fill Rongrong place but it would be another story

      • Psyside

        Its right. You see it wrong cos you missunderstand what Aria means and how its used

        • Robin

          Yes, it is a telling name. One could interpret it as such that the sword is the aria sung by the godess of light. ^^

  • Jonathan Hurd

    Btw Toto just a literary preference from me….

    “This sword was not simply a dead weapon. In some sense, this weapon was already dead.”

    I think it might make more sense to say instead of ‘This sword was not simply a dead weapon’ to say ‘This sword was not simply a sealed weapon.’ Makes a little more sense to me personally and that is what they had been calling it till that point in the chapter.

    • Evilage

      Just because you are correct doesn’t mean you are right.(sorry i just had to)

      • Jonathan Hurd

        Oh I don’t mind either way, it just seemed a bit strange when I first read it, :D.

        • thanks for your help, now that I am home I’ll check that!

        • right, your formulation was better. Thanks

          • Jonathan Hurd

            Np, anytime :D.

    • Robin

      I wondered about this part as well. I think your suggestion is a good one, but Toto would need to check the RAWs to make sure.

  • Jonathan Hurd

    I just had a weird thought… When LHC declares “In the name of the Goddess of LIght, break, dusty seal!” I suddenly pictured LHC standing there with a cross shouting “The power of Light compels you! The power of Light compels you!”

    I’m just saying renaming the series from Divine Throne to Divine Exorcist seems more and more apt, :P.

    Eversince they decided to go to the auction before upgrading their grade, I have been wondering doesn’t it say that the higher the DHS’s grade the greater the discount they will get? If thats true, why they decide to go to auction before upgrading?
    If I remember it correctly, soldier grade get 10% discount, and up by 5% or 10% discount for every grade up. Which will make it 15% or 20% for general grade and 20% or 30% for commander grade.

    • Robin

      Where did you read this? This totally eluded me.

      • Jonathan Hurd

        I think he is correct on this one. I think they explained that way back when LHC was first joining the DHS…

        Okay took a while but finally found it and got a quote…

        “The first advantage they held in their capacities as members of a Demon Hunt Squad could be seen. The accomplishment point tile they had on their left arm enabled them to rest in any of the hotels in the Alliance for free. At the same time he informed them of this fact, Gao Yingjie also told them that, being a soldier grade of Demon Hunt Squad, they would also get a 10% discount in the auction houses. This preferential treatment would increase together with the grade of their Demon Hunt Squad.”

        From Chapter 165

        For why they rushed to the AH before getting their class up I think it is the timing. The AH is held monthly and they did find the Spatial Ore was being sold which they desperately needed. We also don’t know how much bureaucracy they would have to go through for their class up so that might be why they decided to hold off for now.

        • dreamer

          Thank you.

          • Jonathan Hurd

            Np good job remembering that. I had completely forgotten till you brought it up.

        • Robin

          Well yes, there was something like this. Thanks, I forgot about it. And I also think they first wanted to concentrate on training and then rushed to the Auction Hall. And wealthy as they are, they don’t need the discount.

      • Psyside

        Well they get to make mistakes too

  • Anto Wibowo

    Thank you for the chapter! Somehow i have this weird sense of dejavu

  • ZaX

    For honor. Thanks for the chapter

  • agila0212

    Thank you for the chapter 🙂 too bad about the cliffer though…

  • The chuunibyou is strong in this chapter lol

  • Psyside

    While LHC was doing this. The sound of a dager sharpening was heard from the crowd.

  • dreamer

    After re-read it, I wonder something else.
    “With a glint of golden light, a golden, almost human-sized silhouette suddenly appeared in front of Long Haochen.”

    Isn’t she suppose to be the same height as Wang Yuanyuan in that form? Is she got smaller? Or Wang Yuanyuan is to short for normal “human-sized”?

    Because few sentences later there is this sentence: “Spreading the six wings on her back at the same time, her body shrank fast, returning to the size of a third of a meter.”

    And she only has 2 form right?

    • Robin

      I think she would pass for a small human, but she isn’t one so there should be a difference. You would have to read back in the IP chapters for her exact height.

      And yeah, she has 2 forms we know of so far, although I think it was not exactly clarified how much she can change her appearance on her whim: She can be big and hide her wings to almost pass as human, seemingly, she can also have her wings in this form, and she can be small as in the size she had before LHC’s awakening and her latest evolution. In this size, she can sit on his shoulder.

      • dreamer

        I just re-read it and found:
        “Fully grown, she reached a height of over a meter and seventy centimeters, approximately the size of Wang Yuanyuan, and carried a beauty that gave off the feeling of a divine existence.”

        LHC is only 180 and I’m convinced that Chen Ying’er is shorter than that by few cm since she is younger than Yuanyuan and has less physical training.

        So, current explaination was she can change her height a little and not fixed on those 2 height mention before.

  • arras1

    good work , please translate faster i cant wait

    • Robin

      A little patience, my young padawan. There is a right time for everything.

  • Luke Confidential

    Right after a standard chapter T_T

    Enjoy the rest Toto, I’m just going to be over here drawing circles on the floor…

    • Evilage

      Sad, but he also needs a break, just wait 2 more days max
      And Sofoklis S and the other sponsors thank you(note i said her/his name because that peraon donated the most from the looks of it)

      • Robin

        Eight sponsored chaps is a chunk to chew. We need a little time to prepare to provide high quality chaps. Without rest, Toto will start to fall asleep while translating. 😛

        • Evilage

          Well that can be expected. Toto did say he went on a short trip and didnt check the sponsored chapters, i doubt he would’ve been able to release the chapter within 24 hours after he found out, even if he did release it within that short time frame the quality would certianly decrease and it would’ve had a lot of mistakes. Therefore toto taking some time of is a good idea for him
          As for the readers like me, patience is a virtue.

          • Robin

            It is a small shock if you turn on your computer and see 8 sponsored chaps at once, that i can say for myself. Guess Toto was spooked for a moment there as well. 😉
            But the aim is to release the chapters in as good a quality as possible. So, let’s roll up our sleeves and get to work.

          • Jonathan Hurd

            I gotta admit I always enjoy that moment when you are just reading along and the Sponsored Chapter’s number comes into view, and you suddenly stop reading the content and just have to stare at that number, lol.

          • leopold1983

            Exactly, was just hoping on the comment section roller coaster when I saw something unexpected in the sponsored tab. I was wow it’s gonna be a hell of a week 🙂

          • Evilage

            I see no one cares about the story when we got sponsored chapters v.v

          • leopold1983

            Well it’s kinda like when you expect a baby and sudenly you learn that you gonna have twins. You’re happy with one but when you realise it won’t be the only one.
            Story does matter it’s just that there is more reasons to rejoice 🙂

          • Evilage

            I love that example.

  • Zeth

    Thank you very much Totobro and Frederico!

  • Renegade

    wow at all of the sponsor chapters!!!!!! yikes

    • Jonathan Hurd

      It is going to be a good week, :D.

  • Renegade

    Does anyone have photos of any of the characters or sword etc. I can already imagine how things look and but would love to see if the magna version has any.

    • Evilage

      It does have a manga, compared to the novel it hasnt gone that far. But you’ll see most of the main characters.

      • Renegade

        Would you be kind of possibly add an image or two. Curious as to what they do look like.

        • Robin

          Just look for the manga, it is probably easier for you to read a little of it since the story deviates in different aspects from the novel. I personally don’t like it much and find the depiction of some characters… let’s say special. I wouldn’t have recognized some of them without the context in which they appeared.
          But there is some beautiful art depicting Haochen’s and Cai’ers reunion.

          • Evilage

            Yea i loved that part, and didnt xingyu kind of change? He looked different after the first few chapters

          • Robin

            Actually, a fact I don’t like about manhuas is that the art style changes frequently. Although most of the time it improves slowly, it is confusing as hell, and irritating if some characters suddelny look completely different than before.

          • Jonathan Hurd

            I still remember that part. There was this long break in chapters then I found they had updated. After double taking five times, I ended up sitting there wondering to myself if this guy was supposed to be an impostor and how anyone was falling for it, lol.

            I find the Manhua’s have nice pictures, but they have a tendency to change details like hair color and looks to try and make people more distinct. It does help with forming a mental image they are going to be pretty different than their LN counterparts.

            I also find that the SYWZ manhua has a tendency to compact events by skipping a lot of details. The whole visit to Hao Yue’s world for the first evolution was barely a chapter long, O.o. I don’t think the Litch even talked in the whole thing. In the end it is a good gateway drug to draw people to the LN and fun to see some pictures, but the actual read just feels way to sparse for me.

          • Evilage

            Well atleast it is better than coiling dragons manhua, it changed the story plus did you see the alice chapters? I almost died reading them

          • Symbonto

            So far I don’t think I’ve read a manhua that changed more than the Doulou Daul one. They changed the entire story around the 20th chapter and got rid of all the good parts like Slaughter City.

          • Evilage

            And i havent seen a manhua which actually followed the story as much as BTTH, some details were indeed changed but it didnt affect the overall plot(so who cares)

          • Luke Confidential

            +1

            BTTH Manhua is the only LN manhua I seriously follow [I kind of half-ass follow Descent of Phoenix, but when the releases stopped being regular I quit caring about it.]

            My problem with the BTTH novel is the sheer depth of detail the author goes into and the pace of the translation. It’s years [of in-story time and possibly publication time] behind the manhua.

          • Evilage

            Xonisdering the depth, too much detail lr too little?(i myself follow the novel but i want your views)
            As for the translations yes i know
            It has near to 2000 chapters and the translations are at 400, considering the fact that he releases kind of unpredictably(i mean GGP sometimes takes 2 weeks of while other times he releases consistantly) at this pace its gonna take around…hmm near to six years to actually finish the translations, but who can blame the translator? Even GGP got his own life.

          • Luke Confidential

            Too much by far. We don’t need anywhere near that level of minutia. It slows the story down and drags it out.

            This author tends to pace pretty well for the most part, especially Douluo Dalu [of the thus-far-translated material at least.] The pacing did drag a bit during the Demon Hunt Selections but that’s the only drag I recall.

          • Evilage

            yes the author of BTTH does love to drag out things. i’ve started reading the great ruler(started reading due to it being a sequal of BTTH)(same author as BTTH) and i’ve caught up to the translations. honestly a friend who read the raws said that the academy arc is like 400 chapters. the story is ongoing and pretty popular in china if i’m correct.

          • Jonathan Hurd

            I have to say I kind of enjoy the details BTTH has. Its fun having a novel bother describing the difficulties in Alchemy and refining medicines. While the Manhua has the energy when they are competing or doing alchemy. It is really hard for me to feel impressed when all that happens is we have people telling us its hard to succeed and then have the MC do it, lol.

            I can definitely understand people wanting it to hurry up a bit, but for me I like how the LN keeps adding and keeping the things already established. The manhua has this weird habit of throwing things away until randomly bringing them out again. For instance the Black Ruler appears early on for training in the manhua and then after a couple of chapters you don’t see it again until he has to use it for a super skill about a hundred chapters down the line. LN he has never put that damn thing down and is still taking advantage of it, lol.

            As far as translation speed of BTTH goes. I wouldn’t take that whole two week break thing as the norm. That was the Translator being pretty sick. Usually we get about three assured chapters and then usually at least one or two more sponsored. He will also probably feel guilty and throw a few extra ones in since he missed those weeks so he usually makes up for it, :D.

          • Evilage

            I never blamed him, i know he is human. There are far worse translators who actually like to make people suffer(talking about a friend (ahem not pointing fingers)).
            Atleast compared to the other manhua’s of these novels BTTH is good.

          • Jonathan Hurd

            Oh yeah, just saying that this is not his norm, :D. I read Tales of Demons and Gods which has an assured 6 chapters a week and amusingly BTTH has stayed a constant 100 chapters ahead for a few a weeks, lol.

          • Evilage

            I read TDG too, tried to read the raws but was only able to read upto 370 i believe, just so you know its gonna get seriously awesome, i’m not gonna give spoilers.

          • Jonathan Hurd

            The story of TDG makes me happy as a philosopher. I enjoy the idea that the world we live in was made by some supreme expert and then figuring out why.

            I also enjoy how the farther they go the more you understand just how OP the knowledge the MC has is. Mix that with the fact that even he is learning new things and it makes me feel his knowledge is necessary to even begin to understand the bigger mysteries. It’s a fun way of balancing an OP protagonist, IMO.

          • Evilage

            Yes i also love the author/translators writing style. That supreme expert making the world fact also applies to coiling dragon doesnt it? Anywho was it ever mentioned that someone made the world in TDG? Cause i dont remember it.

  • leopold1983

    Thank you dear sponsors, the list keep being updated and gets longer and longer. It’s like I’m at the door of the Illusory Paradise and waiting to enter it!

  • Majk

    After re-reading it I can’t stop imagining LHC going all He-man in this scene.

    • Evilage

      LHC “I HAVE THE POWERRRRR!!!!”

      • Majk

        LHC lifts his sword above his head and screams:
        “I HAVE THE POWER!” Then a pillar of light falls on him making wing of light appear on his back and transforming his clothes into golden armor.
        Next he points his sword at his companion the 2 headed lizard Hao Yue and the power of light transforms him into a 9 headed hydra.

        Alternatively he could scream “I AM OP”

        • Jonathan Hurd

          Does that mean that Yating becomes the Sorceress since she is presenting the sword, lol.

          • Evilage

            Probably? To be honest i dont remember much about he-man, i did watch it when i was a kid(still am a kid but still). There are a few scenes i remember. Sad life since i am so young :’|

          • Jonathan Hurd

            Lol, I’m in a similar boat. I watched a few episodes when I was young as well, but watched more Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles back then than He-Man. So weirdly I know more about giant green turtles than a giant Muscled man who seems to always refuse to wear a shirt, lol.

          • Evilage

            Well i’m on the same boat there as well, i loved TNMT when i was young, mostly raphael dho, he caused me to love the color red.

          • Care

            I loved He-Man & She-Ra. Why can’t I remember the sorceress. I just remember Tila right?? And Battle-cat. Lol and eva-Lin. Am I showing my age hahahahhahaha. I feel old. Omgeeeeee I can’t wait to see everyone’s reaction!!!!

          • Evilage

            Wow, i’m pretty sure your older than me. Most people here should be older than me. I only know he-man from the whole show. I was more into captain planet, tmnt and stuff at one point i watch ninja hattori and perman in hindi(since i come from maldives i had to watch it in hindi :’| /hindi is the indian language if anyone is wondering)

          • Care

            Old I am. But that’s ok. I loved all the shows you mentioned. But then I always loved all anime– still do. Beautiful Maldives.

          • Jonathan Hurd

            I think

  • Psyside

    Holly fk 8 sponsored

    • Evilage

      Welcome to the fun

      • Psyside

        i think this is the most ive seen at once

        • Evilage

          yes, same here. 8 chapters has been sponsored before dho. anyhow there were times when 8 chapters were sponsored and the sponsored week extended a bit by 2-3 days if i remember correctly.

          • Psyside

            guess we find out the swords name today ^^

          • Evilage

            well i guess so considering it is 3 AM for me and the chapter usually releases at night :’|
            sad life.

          • Psyside

            I know that feel. Its 12PM for me go i got a bit more

          • Robin

            Ha, the fun of different time zones.

            It may be the most chapters that were sponsored at once, but I think we had a longer queue of sponsored chaps before, when as soon as the queue got smaller, there were new sponsored chaps added to it.

            I think we had ten in a row then.

          • Evilage

            I believe thats what i said above….

  • Devil In Glasses

    I forgot the rankings of the equipment and which chapter to look at to remember. What are the levels again for the weapon? Ex:Epic Tier&Glorious Tier

    • Evilage

      The order goes like this ordinary equipment, alloy equipment, magical equipment, spiritual equipment, glorious equipment, legendary equipment, epic equipment, immortal equipment, and mystical tier equipment.
      Credits to majk as i just copied his comment from below, i learned not to plagiarize.

      • Devil In Glasses

        I take it then that epic tier and above is what is considered “godly weapon”?

        And for clarification, Bright Rain is also a weapon that can reach epic or higher?

        Much thanks to you and majk ^_^

        • Evilage

          Yes if i remember correctly bright rain was considered as an epic, however since the sword can evolve and no one knows the limits of the sword i think its going to reach a higher level as it gets fixed.

          • Psyside

            Ima say blue rain is a Mythical right now

          • Evilage

            Not yet, the sword will evolve with LHC its master so since LHC isnt 10th step his sword also isnt mythical rank.

          • Jonathan Hurd

            If I remember correctly they said BRHL was legend tier after he fused with melody. Considering it evolved again after the fight with the 8th step moon demon I would guess it might of hit Epic tier at that point.

            After it recovers in Yating considering LHC’s awakening and Hao Yue’s evolution I think it will be top of epic tier or even breakthrough into the next tier. The complete breakthrough might wait till Hao Yue completes his evolution to 6th step though.

          • Psyside

            No i ment it as it will become

  • Illuminati

    “Perhaps I am not fit to become your master, but I am willing to awaken you and let you choose a more fitting master.”

    Dayum… Motherf*… not fit? not fit your grandpa… if even the scion of light, the god’s chosen one blah blah blah is not fit, then who the f*ck is?

  • Erebus

    Thanks for the chapter!
