I think we all have a moral obligation to be condescending and dismissive towards the emotionally stunted children who try to propagate moral panics over works of fiction violating even the most tame and vanilla of taboos. It's bad behavior and should be discouraged.

I can't imagine how constrained and joyless you must be to be unable to enjoy a few years of agegap in your fictional cartoon lesbians.

debated dropping this series for 5 months because of this chapter

Truly a yuri scanlator, all right

Now that all the players and streamers are arriving at the elite 4, we're going to see a big uptick in Chiri art.

Kankan is one of those artists who LOVES deleting their work all the time for no reason. If you like FGO or Bloodborne you might remember some comics about Abigail Williams in Yarnham. Those were also by kankan. Deleted.

Should I put in spoilers? I have no idea when the scanlation will be uploaded, but we are now 4 chapters behind.

Don't. At best you're spoiling people who didn't ask (because people being curious will click on black bars), at worst you're misleading them because you misinterpreted something.

Honestly, as a scanlator, I'd loathe people who say "I've read the raws and this is what happens", even when the scanlator is behind, because it's demotivating.

If you really know Japanese, translate and scanlate unreleased series, join a group, whatever. Everyone will thank you.

Here, you're just annoying actual translators.

Incredibly true. People with nothing to do but post half-misunderstood spoilers from manga raws on forums instead of contributing something useful are truly a pox on the community. They damage the motivation of scanlators and enjoyment of readers all for a tiny ego boost leeched off of some barely scraped together ability to understand primary school Japanese. The world would be a better place if they simply stopped posting entirely. Forever.

Does anyone happen to know which RPG is being referred to in the afterword?

A massive fuckton of text, indeed. This is insanely high effort for a Madoka doujin about Homura being sad, holy shit.

Boy I can't wait for this lolicon side plot to end so we can get back to the consenting adult characters.

It might be cause I'm fried from work and I've accidentally stayed up much later than I intended to, but did anyone else have kind of a hard time reading some of the dialog?

You'll notice that there's no proofreader in the credit page.

If you think you're up to it, you can always volunteer to be a PR for Windyfall, who sorely lack them obviously.

If this is what a TL looks like before proofreading then I've been greatly underestimating the amount of work proofreaders do. That's more than I can handle.

Thirty-six posts in a few hours oh yeah!
I knew the Lolicon + Lots of sex + NSFW combo could do it.

I wonder is this is the first pwp by Itou Hachi?

It's truly the "dead bird, do not eat" of Dynasty.

This is actually quite cute. I'm enjoying it so far.

It's a good reminder that anything on the internet can disappear at any time. If you care about it, archive it. Right now.

That's because it's the same person. They rebranded for some reason. Check the pixiv link.

Not sure what Dynasty's policy is there. Do you maintain the pretense, or acknowledge reality?

Hikawa Shou finally returns to manga because their vtuber obsession has grown too powerful to be contained in fanart.

Artist draws tits too low on the chest in frontal shots. I can't stop noticing it, and now neither can you.

Is this some "gotta delete my internet footprint" thing? Since your work is already rehosted on many scraper sites that will never take it down anyways, is there any point in this? Will you give up this tantrum if we get sankaku or some other gossip site to post "Arckuno, translator for Binbou Scanlations, wants THESE CHAPTERS deleted from Dynasty" as a big, bold headline?

Adventuring party allegory for workplace sexism? I am extremely into this.

It's exactly that.

I suspect that commenters who complain about "unrealistic asshole male characters" don't realize that all the male characters in this story are very realistic portrayals of the sort of men that populate every workplace in Japan.

OLs don't have to worry about stab wounds. I understand that that was the intent, but the result of attempting to mix office culture and life or death combat scenarios is a bunch of incoherent nonsense.

I mean, is it wrong for women to have their own power trip story that pokes holes at the concept of useless equipment and gender roles? The series is a lot of dumb fun, with plenty of moments that make you roll your eyes, but sometimes you go on a discussion board and realize "oh wow, there are actually people that think this way about women".

I completely get what you're saying though, I just know a lot of people will hate on it solely for how it addresses at gender roles and depicts men so negatively, so I felt a need to try providing some defence. Its completely fine to just find it not to your taste.

Of course. It's not wrong to indulge in a simple wish fulfillment fantasy. It's not a crime for there to be an ocean of shitty harem isekais, or revenge porn. But for the same reason I don't read Healer Redo, or any of the countless terrible harem stories out there, I won't read this. I don't really want wish fulfillment. I want a believable world, complex characters, and an engaging plot. None of which you'll find in Exiled.

Don't take the whole "men are exaggerated assholes" as a personal attack from the author, the sexism angle is a driving force of why the MC hates everything she has to live with. Theres plenty of starry eyed ideal world occurrences that happen, but is it wrong for this series to have it when the market is completely saturated with seasonal self insert harems?

Oh, I don't think it's personal, it just breaks my SoD. I can't engage with the story seriously when the world is that nonsensical. That's just how I interact with fiction. I don't begrudge other people their enjoyment, but I figured I should at least offer a heads up to anyone else like me.

Like, the people in this thread asking why she's dressed like that? The answer is literally "because the men say that's what women have to wear." It offers no special defenses. It's not like Dragon Quest bikini armor where it's just assumed to work the same as full plate. Women adventurers in this world are just expected to dress like that and take the stab wounds as they come. I can't take that seriously. It's just not something I can overlook.
