The book is now finished and is available in a number of formats (thanks to many kind readers who took the time to make them). There are undoubtedly still typos and mistranslations, so keep commenting (or emailing cosmos @ cadet-nine.org) when you find them and I’ll continue to edit the PDF a couple times a year.
Please do not upload these files anywhere else for people to download. This is in case I ever get told I’m violating copyright or whatever and I have to take down the files or the entire site.
Here’s a quick FAQ from the questions I’ve seen in the comments.
1. Can I translate the story to X language?
Yes, of course! If you want to send me a link, I can add it to the list of other translations on the site. Sending me an email (cosmos @ cadet-nine.org) is faster than leaving a comment.
2. What will you work on next/Will you translate X novel?
I’m not currently looking to translate any other novels, but I do know about Shin Sekai Zero-nen. It should be complete at the end of 2018 and if someone uploads the scans I’m open to translating it.
3. Can I post the files to another site?
There is always a chance that I’ll be told to take down the translation because of rights violations or something, so I would like to have control of where the files are (also easier to make sure people always get the most recent version). Please don’t upload the files to some other sharing site.
4. Can I donate?
I’m really flattered by all the offers I’ve gotten, but I never expected to get any form of payment for this. If you’d like, donate the money to a good cause :) This is a list of reputable organizations.
As always, thanks for reading! If you have any pressing questions, you’ll get a faster reply by emailing me (cosmos @ cadet-nine.org) since I don’t check back here regularly.
