New LN TL Suggestions

Hey guys I'm sorta new to this site and as a translator but I need help on finding a series to translate. I really loved Overlord and Youjo Senki, so I'd like either a LN or WN similar to those thats darker themed and world building. Youjo Senki is super hard to translate though and was out of my current capabilities, otherwise I would have helped out with that. Anyway, would love suggestions.

Hm... most of my favorite series have been getting translated try something fairly known to a get a good following I'd suggest World Break, Danmachi(it's being translated but it's been kinda floating around with no one commited) or maybe Netgame no Yome wa Onna no Ko ja nai to Omotta there's a couple of others but can't remember their names. I'll hit you up in private messages.

That's a good method for everyone who wishes to offer suggestions to use.

I have a little question, to what section would belong a thread like this one, if any? I do think the best method should be to lurk the ln threads and pm other translator however.

If you liked Youjo Senki, you could try shinigami wo tabeta shoujo ( 死神を食べた少女). It's pretty short (finished after 2 books) so that's not a huge project, although the author also wrote a prequel afterwards of two more volumes (yuusha, aruiwa bakemono to yobareta shoujo - 勇者、或いは化け物と呼ばれた少女) if you're interested in more translation/reading afterwards.
Both are very interesting novels, and of the same editor as Youjo Senki and Overlord, which really specialize in such types of novel.
They are also far easier to translate/read than Youjo senki (I've read all of those so I can confirm)
If you liked Youjo Senki's MC, you're gonna like shinigami wo tabeta shoujo's MC.

Danmachi is a no go, it's licensed in english.

"Kuroki Eiyuu no One Turn Kill", It's a pretty interesting a series where the translation halted mid-volume 2.

I suggest you to pick up Densetsu no Yuusha no Densetsu, the LN itself is amazing and the topic is quite similar to Overlord but not in a game. Right now the translations are really, really slow so please take a look to that LN you're not gonna regret it.

There is no section here at AS where this thread belongs. "Why?" you ask. Because discussion of the business of making translations (a.k.a. meta-translation talk) is not encouraged here at AS. That's why I tried to gently head off any such discussion with my comment.

Yes, this is the method shado6980 will have to use because I'm going to close this thread. As I said, we don't encourage meta-translation talk. We are not a translation site and have no intention of getting into that business.
