I have a question for all those who have read the latest novels. Does it ever mention what happened to the Königstiger's crew?

As for the plot and scenes - they were pretty nice, but the way it was written it was really one of the worst volumes in ZnT novels...
Ahh so you are talking about sentence structures and stuff that is only seen through the eyes of those translating it lol I'm sure those who read the translations don't have as much insight into poorly written japanese sentences as would those translating them.

Also so you are the only person right now translating it lol? I know Serenade is taking a break but wow very low on translators!

Well sometimes it is felt on the translations too. Some sentences look rather odd...And Montmorency's dialogues have barely any feeling of her character but more like it is Author talking not bothering to color the info with a characters personality.

As for translators...

Well serenade is taking a break and it was no secret that lately the translations were depending on him and me as Momogan dropped translating (was too annoyed by people whining about skipping novels to volume 8).

Archmage is another translator (the one who has his translations stalled at volume 7 and volume 8) but as you see he said that he maybe will find time again soon and will be translating again. But as for now, he hasn't found time for quite some period.

Vertiful said that he maybe will start working on his volume 5, chapter 2 again this summer. But as for now - no news from him.

And though Matt said he found two new translators there were no other news about them for some time either...

So yes, the way it is, I am the only active translator at this moment... And thats why it looks like the translations stopped going to random volumes... As I am the only one who is translating at this moment and I was always against random jumps in novel translation...

Yep, but judging from the preview the anime will be pretty inaccurate

Ah...that sucks Darknemo2000 >_< I wasnt aware you were the only guy left translating the novel o_o;;;; Hopefully with the release of the 3rd season, more people would be encouraged to help with the novel.

As far as the 3rd season goes, I just hope that they dont repeat what they did in the 2nd season with the whole cramming part.
Spoiler for End of Season 2:
Heres to hoping!

^^^that might not be a good idea...lol it might be nice since we know more about the show but for the people who watch as fans will be disappointed....I personally would have been furious if he died and had to wait an another year to find out anything...especially if i didnt read the novels...maybe he dies and then showing him recovering from the elf and then ending with a "im going back to louise" would have done the trick...people whould have been happy cuz he isnt dead and then because people would be left with a "he loves louise feeling" then start season 3 with him returning...But it didnt happen so enough with my If, ands, buts...

It would have been great! to put some suspense between seasons and not leave that ridiculous "happy ending"(don't misunderstand, happy endings, for me, don't have to be that happy ), which makes it look like everything's too easy.

Spoiler for novels:

One question to the Novel readers in the Above video who are the the people in the last two linearts of the video.(they're in the shots from 1:16 to the end of the video)
-Beatrice, a character from vol.12. You can probably tell, but she's an annoying spoiled brat. She deserved to be punished, but tch, Tiffania's too kind, tch.
-Gallia King Joseph, now 50% less intimidating.

So he didn't die...? I guess I shouldn't have jumped to volume 7

The Königstiger is the tank Saito had. More commonly known as the King Tiger(Although this is incorrect and was never called this by the Werhmacht and the Schutzstaffel).

Ah, I see.

No, nothing was told on what happened to the tank.

No, I mean the original German crew. Did it ever mention them? Like the A6M's pilot was Siesta's grandfather, etc. That tank had a crew of five. That means somewhere five Germans lived in Louise's world.

Oh, I see. I had a feeling that was what you meant though (possibility anyways).

Nope, nothing was mentioned about the original crew of the tank. It was just found in the Holy Land.
Though Julio had mentioned before that Romaria has met people from his (Saito's) world in the past...

I just have a question about the ZNT novels that are coming out in English. I really want to read the znt novels but i can't becuz i can't read japaneese, so i've been wondering when the english znt novels come out will they be exactly like the original version or do you they'll edit parts out becuz my friend is always saying how the u.s always takes out curses and stuff they think is unsuitable. Anyways i was just wondering if that's true cuz if it is that really sucks! I hope they don't edit stuff they should just keep it same as the japaneese version.

Ahaha, hahahaha!! In the end, Seven Seas is Seven Seas! Can't go on without their brilliant little delays!
Hagh... Now the game is to see just how long they plan to delay it. A year like Shinigami no Ballad? More like Gun Princess?

I have a question for the gentle baka-tsuki translator staff... It may be a little out of place but since i'm quite new around i'll ask.
Now that Seven Seas is translating (i guess) the novels, will baka-tsuki stop? Or maybe I should have said once they start releasing the novels...

No, we will continue, just when they will release a volume we will remove that volume from wiki. So lets say when they will finally translate volume 01 (if ever) we will remove volume 01 from our list but will keep on other volumes and so on.
