SOMEBODY PLEASE TRANSLATE VERMILLION

Synopsis:

Western VRMMO 【DEMONDAL】 was known for its extremely harsh game system. To begin with, there were no levels. There were no skills. There were no guilds. There was no inventory. There were no convenient system messages or maps of any kind either. It was so needlessly realistic that it was already basically a VR life simulator.

As for anything game-like, it was basically limited to weapon masteries; a proficiency level that you got from using your weapon, as well as physical strength that increased as well. That was it.

It was a fantasy game so there was magic, but forming a contract with a spirit was extremely difficult, and only 1% of the playerbase were magicians.

In this VR game 【DEMONDAL】 that was ridiculously close to reality, the protagonist Kei who was a well known mounted archery expert, was one day sent to another world with his Russian 【DEMONDAL】 friend.

The game that was severe to begin with had turned into a reality, and the harshness increased again――

Why you should translate it:

  1. The partner is a blonde Russian loli “ninja” who speaks like a bro
  2. The excerpts below:

 

「FUCK YOU(死にさらせ)!!!」


「――”NINJA”!」

頭目は呻くようにして叫ぶ。

“忍者”。

それも、純粋な日本製《メイド・イン・ジャパン》の”忍者”ではなく。
 外国人が勝手にイメージを膨らませて創り出したような、何かちょっと間違えてる、”NINJA”。

「”NINJA”! ”NINJA”のアンドレイ!?」
「Holy Shit(なんてこった)!! 本物か!?」
「あの一瞬でマントを身代わりに……!」

周囲の手下たちにも、動揺が広がる。

“NINJA”のアンドレイ。

彼は、この世界でも屈指の有名人だった。
その個性的すぎる見かけと――それでも、確かな実力から。


「流石は”死神日本人《ジャップ・ザ・リーパー》”……死神様には相応しい武器、だな?」
「…………」

が、アンドレイのからかいに一転、渋面を作る。

“死神日本人《ジャップ・ザ・リーパー》”。

幾つかあるケイの渾名の中で、おそらく最も広まっているものだ。

かの有名な殺人鬼、”切り裂きJACK《ジャック・ザ・リッパー》”をもじったこの渾名は、ケイと交戦した者のあまりの死亡率の高さから名付けられた。


 

現在ではさらに縮まり、”ザ・ジャップ”とさえ呼ばれる始末だ。
呼んでいる者たちにはあ(・)ま(・)り(・)悪意はないのだろうが、いち日本人として、「ジャップジャップ」と呼ばれるのは、あまり良い気持ちはしない。


 

**3. The MC’s nickname was Jap the Ripper.

    1. Other way around; turns out ‘Andrei the NINJA’ was actually ‘Eileen the NINJA(-cosplaying girl)’.

      Sex differences are somewhat more realistic in this game as well, and females get a debuff to strength, while males get a debuff to hand-fiddly-dexterity. As a NINJA (or rather, as a person using the weapons of a ninja) it just made more sense to play a male.

      1. I’m also waiting for that duke’s daughter. I already went pleading for many translators to translate that, but with no result ;_;
        Also, that fox story looks cute~

  1. It sounded good until they said the game turned real. They spent like four paragraphs building up the VR game then the last one telling us those last four paragraphs were meaningless.

  2. Do you have any raws? I’ve taken like 2 years of uni japanese and want something to practice w/, so I’d consider taking this up if it’s free… otherwise I might as well just translate my college’s copy of the man’yoshu…

    1. It took a chunk out of my Friday night and the entirety of Saturday, but I’m up to date with the WN! Too bad that the author seems to be working on other stuff.

      It’s definitely not what I was expecting, but I like it. I guess that I thought it would be more like Manuke FPS Player or even DesuMachi. There’s an OP element, but most problems encountered in society can’t be resolved through brute force; also, a little kindness isn’t always reciprocated by unconditional love and devotion (*cough most harem WNs cough*).

      Since this runs counter to some of the more popular WN elements, it might not be too popular with the younger (teenage) crowd. So, I’m not holding my breath on someone picking it up all too quickly. Still, this is definitely going on my list of LNs to eventually buy.
