You know, I also want Athena to be part of the harem and all, but there is the power issue and, more importantly,...

Spoiler for V9 end:

If fools can make the impossible to be possible then why not something like making Athena to return?
Also narrative and afterwords didn't left me the impression of being the last we saw of her.

I know what you're talking about, but... as I said here. And some time ago, too. Godou can't do anything about it, neither can she, and nobody else would care, so what's she gonna do?

Everyone likes Athena. Though personally, she isn't going to pop up if Jou-chan doesn't find a way to take her back. My guess is that
Spoiler for :


That is unless she ges the CampionexHeretic-God ending, a possibility.

Her ending is plenty tragic already. So are her beginnings. And most of what's in between... Except for that one nighttime date + cruise with Godou, it's all tragedy...

He could always Screw Destiny, right? Besides, if she never went back to the God's Realm, she might have been captured or sealed right after "dying", and is being used as a sacrifice or something.

Among all the endings I've thought of, the "Godou breaks the god/campione-system and becomes a normal human again, living one lifetime with Erica/his harem" seems the most likely to me. Suddenly discovering the Youth incarnation has a lasting side-effect of immortality would be sooo lame. Unless it's through sleeping with them, that is. "As long as your seed is in the girl, she won't age". ....duhhh.
I think I'd be quite irritated if that was the ending to the story. Not that I don't think Godou deserves a nice "retirement" if he's done a ton of work.. BUT:

"You happened to be birthed at the right time and place and are now the one who will fulfil the end of the cycle and the blah blah something something prophecy" or "You are the CHOSEN one, I mean.. Campione + Fated Hero = DOUBLE CHOSEN!" just feels like a cop out to me.

This cycle of birth and death of Campiones and the cycle of heretical gods shaking off their bonds and disappearing only to return has lasted thousands of years and it's going to end now? Seriously?

My guess is that Godou gets some bittersweet ending. Such as he takes all the girls with him and say "Hum, Let's fight together, OK?" as ending. Or his grandson is with him and asks "Dad, how was mom like" and Godou simply smiles and passes away like Kiritsugu did.

That'd be fine, though "Screw destiny" is often used In desperation by some authors, so I don't know.

Wouldn't it be something more like "he who defies destiny"? I mean Godou being the one who holds Verethragna's traits of victory gives him the possibilities to fight and be successful at situation where others fails.

By the way, Volume 3 is truly done now (other than random typos).
I ended up re-translating most of Chapter 1, so I encourage people to re-read the prologue and chapter 1.

The previous translator had a ton of errors and omissions.

And I can't believe the author actually spoiled the plot twist about John Pluto Smith in the afterword, 3 volumes before the first appearance of JPS.

Sans might have done the trasnaltion with the Chinese novels found on the net. They are often more "official" than correct.

Well, the version used was clearly the fan translated one at L**htNov**.cn, so I don't blame him/her for the missing chunk from Yuri's confrontation with Godou.

However, there are lots of factual errors such as the population of Sardinia is not ten thousand, Italy's north is the richer part not the south, Kusanagi Ichirou was a graduate student, not a high school student, calling sake wine, etc etc... Some of it is just plain sloppy.

What I found the most objectionable though, was omission of details for no apparent reason. Liberal paraphrasing is fine, but I believe there should be no loss of information. For example, if someone picks up something from the table, and you describe it as simply picking up the object, that seems so pointless.

Anyway, this proves I'm not suited to be an editor because I'll just end up re-translating things. Though Kadi's "translator" for Volumes 2 and 5 is fine.

Well, Chinese translators can use the published translation up to volume 7. The translations after that are fan based on lightn----.cn

The fan translations are fine, mostly... In fact, sometimes it's the "official" version that is flawed due to scanning errors.

If I didn't make myself clear, I'm just complaining about the previous translator at Baka-Tsuki who stopped after Chapter 1, but it turns out the work he/she did was sub par.

well yeah, the current Campione translator on that site is good (the one with a Charlotte avatar from Infinite Stratos). Don't know if he or she is the same one as the early volumes.
