As many of you have seen, the pace in which i was able to translate the first half of DX4 have been extremely slow with latest chapter that just have been released having taken several month at this point to complete.
Main reason behind why it has taken such long time for the translation to be out is because of my masters program that i have been taking for past half-year or so and because of that, i’ve rarely had chance to have any free time for my self let alone find any time to translate both DxD and Inou Battle series.
Because that i am not able to commit any of my spare time on side projects, rest of the DX4 volume will be done with the help from zxzxzx and will be available on his blog. I will be helping him along the way as much as possible but for now, i will be taking break from active translation of future DxD series and will be taking significant break from Inou Battle series.
As for DX5 is concerned, neither I or zx have any future plans to translate it at this point. Bare in mind that Korean DX5 will most likely come out during summer holidays, however i may not have any time to continue the translation after holiday has ended, therefore i cannot say if i will be able to translate the DX5
I would like to thank everyone from the community who has given me support and help until now, and i hope that this won’t be the last time i will get to post another translation on this blog.

It’s the beginning of the battle between [Team Imperial Purpure]
and [Team Spear of Heavenly Emperor]!
The game field looks like it’s imitating one of the Underworld’s
ruins as it was in the middle of the desert.
The area looked like similar in size compared to Khou Academy and since there were no buildings to hide, enemies will be able to meet each other quickly and the battle will begin not long after the match begins.
Power 3. A Mad Feast of Power and Technique Begins
The day of the battle between [Team Imperial Purpure] and [Team Spear of Heavenly Emperor]…
I, Hyoudou Issei, came to the floating city of Agreas in the land of House of Agares where the match is about to happen. That’s right, this city, which was taken from Qlippoth before, have turned into a spot for the battle once all the checks have completed to make sure it was safe.
Both the current and former members of ORC and student council decided to meet up and watch the match in the VIP room having prepared for this match.
With this place being the holy place of rating game, the normal seats were filled to the brim.
Amid all that, the announcer, Naud Gamigin-san, who is same one as ours, shouted louder than the audience.
It’s been long time so i would like to do this quick post to give a short update on what’s going on. i’ll probably delete this in next chapter update.
Yeah, i’ve been on holiday for quick long time now and the reason for tha is result of few things. First being i visited Korea for the first time in long time and second, i visited Japan with my family for the first time. I originally wanted to do a short blog about my trip to Japan but it turns out all i took photo of was the food…
Now back to the topic. I’ve been working on the next chapter of both DX4 and Inou Battle, however few things have caused me to delay in both of them. Obviousely the holiday was one, but another is that i’ve just moved house and currently got no solid internet. All i’ve got is mobile hotsopt which is… not too ideal to say and since my desktop is not connected by WI-Fi, i’m out o luck there.
Another major event in my life is that i’m going back to uni for (hopefully) my final year of university life, therefore i have been busy preparing for the new course which starts in two weeks time.
All this is basically me saying ‘yup, i haven’t done as much tl as i wanted this summer’. Sorry about that.
Regardless, the next chapter of DX4 is on the way and it will be complete very soon, same goes for the next Vol 5 Inou Battle chapter. We’ve started the next chapter of Vol 6 Inou Battle but that one will take time.
So expect an update of DxD and Inou Battle soon, but please don’t get your hopes up.
Thank you to everyone who’s been supporting me with the translations, and i do apologise for slower speed in TL this time, but a lot has been going through my life lately so only thing i can do right now is just apologising.
Finally, both DX3 and Inou Battle 1 has been translated! Man that’s quite a bit off my shoulders. As always, thank you to ZXCode Zero and Alexis for help along the way. Not to mention FirstAidTent and dragon-maou for the help with Inou Battle, took us awhile huh?
Now for DX4 and rest of Inou Battle. I will be translating them, but i will need to buy the books first. Inou Battle is easier since i can get it as EBook, but i will need to buy the physical DX4 so translation for DxD won’t start until late next month.
As for Inou Battle. We’re currently discussing how we will continue the TL, starting with Vol 2 or where anime has left off. If you are waiting for Inou battle, then don’t worry, I’m still on it.
Not that many people read it anyway, but the seasonal anime list i’ve done on what i’ve watched wasn’t posted for long time, and for now it won’t be a regular thing anymore. I just haven’t and can’t get the writing done regardless of what happens. Of course i’ll upload something like that time to time but it won’t be at the end of a season anymore, and again it’s not like people read it anyway so no loss there.
Anyway, that’s little update for you guys. thanks.
After school, in the Student Council room, I let out a sigh. There’s no one but me in the room since there weren’t any meetings or plans to meet today, but since there was work left over, I decided to remain here.
It is a bit lonely with no one here.
Maybe it’s because of that feeling, but I ended up thinking about the members of the literature club, who are probably playing around lively right now.
When and who was the one that thought up things like ability names, techniques and aliases?
That was the kind of feeling I had when I first started writing this book. In fiction, several different terminologies appear, but to the author, most of them are probably compromises. For example, when a character from a battle manga uses a new finishing move, thoughts like ‘Eh? Did I think up such a stylish skill name?’ has struck anyone at least once in their life hasn’t it?
With that said, instead of fumbling over that part, I’ve decided to put great effort into describing this process. One of the main concept of this work is specifying, to the extent of my ability, who the authors of the used terminologies are. The names do not conveniently pop up in my mind or anything like that. The characters in the story all try their best diligently looking through dictionaries every night.
