Story Synopsis (from B-T)
Quote:

The countries of Mephius and Garbera have been waging a war for ten years and are trying to put an end to this long fight through a political marriage between the two royal families. Orba, who was driven from his home because of the war and was forced to become a gladiator, looks exactly like the crown prince of Mephius, and it has been decided he will be substituting him during the wedding ceremony. On the other hand, Vileena, the princess of Garbera, has secretly decided to ensnare the crown prince for her own country’s interests.
This Ln is also interesting. Actually, it translated on B-T by Dogma. And his work is of high quality. And I think it's, like Madan a socio-politico LN. The translation is on B-T in vol1 ch4, and advances at a proper pace. I also intend to help translating after finishing with Madan.

I want to know if there is the Chinese version of this LN.

ArchmageXin 2013-06-14 13:18

There is, translation is some where around volume 10.

This is a pretty addictive series, I read everything on BT in one sitting, I wonder why is it not that popular especially as its a completed series with some really interesting characters.

I think it's because many people don't know that such LN exists. That's why I open a thread here.

It's actually a pretty unappreciated series, there's actually no summaries anywhere(not that I know of).

whsie 2013-06-14 23:51

One of my favorites. I unconditionally give it my thumbs up.

For those interested, 11 of the 12 volumes have been translated in Chinese (over a very long time. Snail like speed).

So only vol 11 and 12 in chinese, huh. Well, good.

Hemisphere 2013-06-15 06:21

This, Mismarka Koukoku Monogatari, and Gabriella Senki.

Good politics-heavy reads.

alviam099 2013-06-15 07:41

Err, setsuna, I think he meant 11 out of 12 volumes are Chinese translated.

It's a good thing to read if you like your book bloody, very interesting even if the translated parts in English are short.

whsie 2013-06-15 13:54

^ basically, the only volume not done is the final one.

Ah ok. so have you the link of the chinese LN of Rakuin?

whsie 2013-06-15 14:08

the translations are done by different translation groups and people (e.g. volume 8 was half way done and then picked up by another), so getting the original source would be a pain.

Just go to the standard host website if you want to read it

Thank you. And just so you know, I can read chinese. I ask that only to use as reference when I will begin to translate the japanese LN in english.

kan-chan 2013-06-28 13:35

I'm planning to read this novel as soon as there'll be more chapters in english (or one volume). Could anyone of you that has already read more volumes, if there is a bit, more or too romance? I don't like very much shoujo "classic" manga but with novel the classification it's a bit different.

ArchmageXin 2013-07-21 11:16

I am going to pick up chapter 7 and epilogue of V1. I am mildly curious if the Princess figure out the masked swordman = fake crown prince by the end of Volume 1.

I have a summary of this LN, but I don't think she will figure it out here. But she will gain an interest of the masked swordman (without knowing it is the fake crown prince) and surely detest the Prince (well it is only my opinion)

ArchmageXin 2013-07-21 17:14

Well, I decided to skim through the epilogue for the next few chapters, there isn't any sign of an obvious harem going on. The princess clearly isn't falling head over heels. Though the two clearly are power couples. I will be very pleased when V12 is finished. (especially since the author have the balls to actually finish his story).

whsie 2013-07-21 20:37

^

No harem. This is a straight up political, tactics-based LN.
Spoiler for spoiler...kind of:


Character development is supposed to be a major emphasis in this story.
