Chapter 9: October the 5th
Webnovel in progress
I thought that the manga did the part where she kills the usapiru much better, but when she begs him to give her back the curse, that's much better in the WN.
Why can't one version be perfect and definitively best?
A spoiler is a spoiler, even without context
It's nice that the language isn't too hard. Even though I have to look up lots, I'm slowly progressing and having fun for once
>she did the exact same thing
Not even close. In the manga, she just wants it back and there's really not much to it but that. In the WN, she
wants it back so that he can trust her entirely, which is only obliquely implied in the manga, but also she has the line about Naofumi not fully trusting anyone other than a slave, and that she wants to show that she trusts Naofumi too.
No idea. I know all the other heroes in Glass' world were reincarnation people by the final battle, but I can't recall if they were originally reincarnation people or if they had their weapons stolen from them. So the scythe hero seen in the Cal Mira island arc may be a reincarnation person OR he's later killed and replaced by a reincarnation hero. In which case, his female companion would be the female friend that Glass wanted to meet again, but had disappeared from the world (hinted to have gone to a different universe when Naofumi, with his god powers, couldn't sense her presence in the merged world).
Whip hero is just one of the reincarnation people. The whip was originally granted to him, perhaps because he may have still had the potential to be heroic (like Ren, Itsuki, and Motoyasu)? However, Melty corrupted him early on when she went abroad to study (lost her virginity to him, actually).
Yeah? That's the waste. The waste is the cane hero. The cane allows its wielder to cast any kind of magic and speeds up their casting time. The waste can recite ceremony magic solo.
No matter how much, the people he helps are commoners, at most it's village chief or something, not nobles. That's why in the first "The book" says that shield hero is famous with plebeians.
Come on, it's obvious that the Hero of the Shield and the Saint are two different men and that the criminal Hero is simply trying to claim the Saint's fame by brainwashing poor villagers. What a monster.
I think "Welcomed" is more accurately translated as "received". It could be that the term used is ironically positive, I'm not that good at nuance, but I think it just refers to him going back to the capital and meeting with the king again or something.
Firo's fiance isn't pure? How sad.
I think you meant Malty.
Fuck their names. But yeah. Firo took Melty's virginity. It's why Motoyasu considers her to be his rival in love (a fellow phiroreal maniac, was one of the people considered as a partner by Firo while she was in heat).
Are there even other kingdoms of note? A beastman kingdom was mentioned, but it was also mentioned as being explicitly oppressive to humans, in the same way that the human kingdom is oppressive to beastmen. Considering there hasn't been a single non-slave beastman shown yet, it hardly seems wise for him to go there.
The reason the Queen is gone is because she and the leaders of the other nations were discussing which country should summon the four heroes. Of course Church and her idiot husband/daughter went behind her once she was out of the country.
On the character introduction page, she's standing side by side with Naofumi & co. making them looks like they're on gunpoint with the other 3 heroes with bitchcess.
>This is just an assumption.
Shirutoveruto - Led by the Genbu and Suzaku seeds (turtle and bird sub-humans). The Hakuko seed (tiger sub-humans) used to be the top in the leadership, but in the war against the Wisdom Genius King (the waste), they lost, so their importance has declined. The Hakuko are also the most fanatical followers of the shield hero.
Shieldfreeden - Led by the Aotatsu seed (dragon sub-humans) and sub-humans and humans are treated equally here. The leadership, however, is allied with the whip hero (probably because the dragon emperor, the dragon which contains the largest fragment of the spirit, was a part of the whip hero's harem). As you can tell from the name of their country, it was established separately from Shirutoveruto to escape from their religion. Ironic that it turns out they were even more fanatically religious.
Zeratabul - Not sure on the exact name of this country. Forgot how it's spelled and I'm just reciting it from memory, although I know it starts with a 'z'. Anyway, this is the mercenary country. No royalty, however, it's led by merchants. Has a coliseum and also contains the dark guild (which cooperated in the war against Foburei).
Foburei - The royalty is renowned for having the blood of the past heroes flowing in them. Incest. The waste was from here. Also the most technologically advanced (the whip hero was hypothesized to have removed all the technology and advancements in the other countries in his previous lives). Airships, guns.
Oh, just implied lesbo sex between a loli and a fat bird. Melty's clothes were off her by the end, anyway. Cunnilingus, maybe? Cunnilingus with a bird beak, anyway. Lots of kissing too.
Tsundere. She gets angry at Naofumi for only calling her second princess after they had been traveling together for a while and demanded that he called her by her first name. Gets along with him well enough anyway, when she's not annoyed with him.
Genbu and Suzaku seeds (turtle and bird sub-humans).
Hakuko seed (tiger sub-humans)
Aotatsu seed (dragon sub-humans)
Strange. You'd usually expect to keep the naming scheme consistent, with Byakko and Seiryuu.
Because he's an idiot about it. He was the same kind of guy as the whip hero was and may have become an insufferable prick like that guy if he hadn't learned what TRUE LOVE was true love is fat bird.
Green is Bow's waifu. She tried to kill herself but Firo saved her. Apparently she was abandoned by Bow's companion group for being useless and weak. Shield Hero level grinds her and toughens her up and later gets her and Bow together. Pink is Eclair, I believe she was the daughter of the nobles that were in charge of Raphtalia's village. At the start of the story she was in prison or something.
From what I understand from spoilers it wasn't a complex thing for the two of them, they both just suffered from "Can't spit it out" so after Naofumi gave Bow Hero a push, it was fine.
Ah, I went and double-checked it.
Ao means blue and tatsu is the 5th sign of the Chinese Zodiac (dragon). So, Aotatsu is 'blue dragon'. Hakuko may actually be Hakko, which is an alternate way of pronouncing Byakko. So it's not Hakuko, but Hakko. Just so you understand, ? (white) is pronounced 'haku' and ? (tiger) is pronounced 'ko'.
>Episode ???? >???????????????????????? >The light of his eye has disapeard. If he were an magical girl he would have become a witch.
MY SIDES!! This bitch is kyube with tits!
>defending a monster that doesn't listen to her master
She maybe is the worst because loli = no boner.
But she is not hateful like bitch. Indeed, she is a good girl.
She is adorable but not fuckable.
In other ways the vitch is fuckable but is an bitch.
The grown up tanuki girl is adorable and fuckable.
She is the best girl.
>Something more details to take care about the dragon?
>Don't let it eat at midnight. It will become an bad boy/girl.
>What kind of "devil" is it?
>So what? It will multiply If someone put water on it?
Wow, he is not only anime otaku after all.
But using an l sounds dumb in her name and using a r sounds dumb in the name of her race.
Also, using an F is a wrong romanization when it's a bilabial fricative and should clearly be ph even if that makes the same sound as F in modern English.
So I just read shield bro right now, and how did I not read this before? It's the best kind of edge. I want the endgame to have shield-bro walk into the throne room with level 90 dragons hidden under his cloak and just fuck things up.
I can't handle how there are only 8 chapters out. Someone hold me.
If you read it on some random reader site, do yourself a favor and read the chapter 8 from the master pastebin.
Also somewhat related but Galactica's translations for the recent releases have been pretty bad.
Dude, we are spoiled because translator is so damn fast.
That I expect like 5-10 chapters every time is my own damn fault
Should have been obvious by context.
Pretty sure the next girl interested in Shield Hero that joins the group is another loli, though I think at the same time she enters the cast there's another more mature harem member.
That's like 150 webnovel chapters off in the future away from current translations.
Well they're all his slaves pretty much. That's from when he gets land from the kingdom, I think it's the land where Raphtalia's village used to be, and starts getting a lot of slaves in order to protect and develop it.
Good morning /a/,I wasn't planning to do this when I just woke up. But, I read though the two shieldbro thread's and I've come to realise. I would make a horribly parent because of excessive spoiling. Anyway, Chapter 45!
in the novels she's stripped to the waste publically for them to remove the seal... and she strips to the waste to get the seal put back on. Shieldbro doesn't care. he is a true
Only thing she won't eat is Shield-kun and Tanuki.
he gets land from the kingdom
starts getting a lot of slaves in order to protect and develop it.
Fuck yeah. I know "paying attention to things that actually affect people" is a major theme of this, but I really wish more fantasy did shit like this.
>full of expectations
This isn't going to go well.
I don't get HanaKana, Firo is too dopey for that. I'm not sure what voice I think would fit. It would have to be a really childish, airheaded voice.
I imagine Firo to be voiced by Tamura Yukari with the way she speaks
No. There's some similarity in Wakfu, which has an emphasis on actions having economic and ecological consequences, and Path of Exile has a similarly huge and granular skill tree, but as in Shield's birth world, there is no direct analogue.
I don't normally ever find "childlike" characters grating or annoying. It hasn't happened to me before, even with characters who are widely disliked for that reason. But Firo has finally proved that there is an exception.
That doesn't excuse her future behaviour. How do you teach someone who can level houses when your only tools are pain and food?
Raphtalia had it way better, with an actual childhood and combat training.
Never forget that Firo is a Demon, literally.
Raphtalia might understand a wee bit of human culture due to the fact that she's a 'demi-human', Firo, on the other hand, is a genuine demon.
Even if that is true, what are you supposed to do with someone like that? Whether or not she's supposed to be treated as a weapon, is it alright to just keep doing so, without consideration for the future?
>It's a good feel
Since I have to travel tomorrow and might not get to read again for a while, it would be a better feel for me if the chapter had ended in a state other than such total anticipation. But, it is better than those things for sure.
the series gets crappy
How could such a thing happen? And, how could a series to which it had happened get a LN and manga?
time loops, parallel worlds, and other logic fuckery
Since everything else is done well, that probably is too, making it become only a different good.
loss of purity
If it's Raphtalia, it was inevitable.
Firo suddenly lets out a strange call and runs rampant.
The three of us who were in the carriage (Me, Raphtalia, and the merchant) grasp at the carriage’s handrails to keep from falling.
The wheels let out a loud rattle so I couldn’t hear what was going on outside.
Every now and then Firo flips out and causes a ruckus like this.
This is the fourth time since we’ve started peddling. Such a capricious creature.
I bet Naofumi would so happy if he knew.
only come in at the end
Well anyone who didn't know there would be parallel worlds at the end is a fucking dumbass. Not even spoilering that bit, if it starts with parallel world it ends with parallel world and fucking everybody should deduce that.
That Firo has been kicking Spear Hero everytime she sees him. Shield Hero and Raphtalia are usually in the wagon when traveling so they don't know Firo has been faithfully following her orders.
I think next chapter to be translated is when they run into Spear Hero at the church or whatever? Or might be the one after.
I kind of wish I hadn't asked for a spoiler so I could see the reveal.
given to sudden and unaccountable changes of mood or behavior.
I believe he just thinks Firo is just going crazy every now and then.
I guess our reigning champ of fat has finally been defeated by a bigger stomach.
Bird confirmed for Ultra Fat.
Sampleanon here. No preview picture this time, but I just have something to say.
You know you're fucked when, instead of using the pen tool to make the lines and just stroke them to make the lines that compose the drawing, you have to use the pen tool and make each individual line as shapes to fill in with a brush
that is hell.
careful unlocking the curse series.
Yup. I posted it last thread. The PSD is on the dropbox under images link in the masterbin, too.
Also please don't call me -sama, it's embarrassing
Also I was gonna post the picture here but someone just beat me to it.
>Also please don't call me -sama, it's embarrassing
It's all good. No worries
Im just an average everydude that does stuff like this as a hobby. Honorifics are for those who deserve them, bro.
Not him, but hell if you don't deserve it. I don't think there are many people who have enough patience to go through all the redrawing you do. We all appreciate you, SAMPLE-SAMA.
>Im just an average everydude that does stuff like this as a hobby. Honorifics are for those who deserve them, bro.
You deserve it anon.
No, it's a fully alternate world. Itsuki's has psychic powers and Ren's has future tech. Motoyasu and Naofumi's worlds are parallel and not just alternate worlds that are similar to each other because they're pretty close to each other. Compared to Ren's, which was pretty far from Naofumi's world.
You missed the point. It was less of a question than a dig at terminology. If two planes aren't parallel, then they must intersect. That's geometry. They may be parallel at greater distances though.
happy balloon face for all your happy balloon face needs
you guys are gonna make me cry. seriously.
Those are still all parallel worlds.
I can actually appreciate what you do. I do some similar edits myself.
What some /a/nons fail to realize it that it's often up you you to not only fill the gaps, but to also draw/paint in the details that often don't exist.
It's an art, so enjoy the kudos it brings. That and I'm also a big fan!
This also includes the TLanon here of course.
According to the spoilers,
they become gods and clone themselves, send those clones to other dimensions and proceed to make lots of babies in all of them.
Ah I want more but feel guilty for being greedy enough tho TLbros are doing amazing work.
"Firo wants to
be able to spit poison~!"
Firo is so cheeky. she seems a little strong though. Like, way strong.
>Firo is so cheeky. she seems a little strong though. Like, way strong.
All the heroes would get a queen/king if they raised a phiroreal. However, Firo is stronger than the others because, as the first phiroreal queen Fitoria came upon who impressed her, Firo was designated as the successor. So on top of that blessing and the slave + demon tamer shield bonuses, Firo's the strongest phiroreal queen amongst Naofumi's forces. Motoyasu completely unlocked the phiroreal series of spears so he's super great at raising phiroreal.
Quints for justice has been done.
>spearfag keeps getting wrecked by firo >believes they are the ultimate demon, the only one he has been unable to defeat >devotes himself to raising them
is that how it happened? I hope that's how it happened
Spear Hero gets totally fucked over by Bitch and his other companions to the point that he's so emotionally / mentally scarred that he just sees all women as pigs now. The only exception is Firo, who he confesses to a lot. He becomes a philorea maniac and starts raising philorea himself.
All his philorea are Queens/Kings. Apparently the trick to getting them is being a Hero and it affects their status after they hatch. His main trio that follow him are two Queens and a King.
In the Spear Hero Gaiden he gives philorea eggs to Naofumi to raise. One of them reminds Motoyasu of Firo a lot, while one of the others ends up looking a lot like
I don't think he sees women as scary, he just sees them as pigs and hears what they say as pig noises.
Also his trio see Firo as their rival since Motoyasu, despite being a philorea maniac, is entirely Firo-sexual.
My old enemy...
Also I was listening to this earlier and I think it could make a great Wrath Shield song. what do you think?
Made this for such an occasion
Around chapter 55. There a couple more chapters in between.
I tried my darndest to finish this tonight but I don't have any more time and tomorrow I'm most likely leaving home early.
Computer access is uncertain and, worst case scenario, I won't have one until wednesday.
If that ends up happening, I'm sorry, /a/.
But noone fit the character of Firo on Spice and Wolf, except you forcefully name the Horse at Spice and Wolf as firo and can talk (also shapesifting into 10 years old angelic heroine with white wing).
The tlanon is quite fast that people have become too spoil. Even I am getting a bit impatient about the next chapter. This is exactly like the time Spyro-sama was translating volume 7-9 on Yahari. Bless you Spyro.
>Calls himself an otaku
>Is supposed to be socially inept
>doesn't even bat an eye at a socially acceptable way to show extreme gratitude towards a plump woman
Most mcs would be sweating bullets even thinking about it
that's because he's basically had his sexual desire for women destroyed by the bitch. Every time he "thinks" about the tanuki or the fat chocobo being female he gets blinded by rage and hate and has to talk himself down from taking it out on them. This is why tanuki can be naked in front of him and he won't get a woody. It's not that tanuki isn't cute, sexy or beautiful. It's because he HATES ALL WOMEN to such an extent he feels zero sexual desire for them. As a result shieldbro has chosen to view fat chocobo and tanuki as little CHILDREN and not as FEMALES.
this way he can spend time with them, travel with them and enjoy their company without suffering blinding rage and killing furies 24/7.
I laughed a little at this nickname for Firo. Firo is so randomly silly, but mostly she sorta irritates me. Not sure how Shieldbro puts up with the selfish chubby bird.
Oh, so the manga does follow the LN quite accurately and it is actually the LN that is fairly different from the WN? Wonder how much that is the doing of the editor and how much of the author?
I know, but I haven't read that far. I just in chapter 77. But it's fucking satisfying.
Well, I'm asian and I moderately proficient in hanyu. I can read kana and grammar that Japanese use isn't too much different from my native language. I need MTL just to translate difficult kanji.
>One of them reminds Motoyasu of Firo a lot, while one of the others ends up looking a lot like
Raphtalia. That's the same phiroreal. When he he raised it and kept it close to Naofumi, it reminded him of Firo. When Naofumi raised it, it still reminded him of Firo until it transformed into its human form (which looked like Raphtalia). The phiroreal's name was Sakura and she seemed to be a mish-mash of both Firo and Raphtalia.
So what do you use for that? I wanna try my hand at translating, but manually looking up stuff I don't know is a massive pain in the ass. I heard something about MTL aggregators, but I've no idea which ones are any good for this kind of stuff.
>Every time he "thinks" about the tanuki or the fat chocobo being female he gets blinded by rage and hate and has to talk himself down from taking it out on them
Uh. No. Don't spread misinformation.
He doesn't hate all women. He was frustrated by the bitch, but otherwise, he doesn't really discriminate.
If you can read Chinese, the webnovel is basically readeable with excite's JP->CN machine translator:
He bought Tanuki because she looked as miserable as he would've liked the bitch to be, and even when Tanuki was asking him what he thought about her and if he could sleep with her, explicitly telling him that it wasn't because she was lonely and refusing to sleep with Firo instead, the first thing he thought about was the woman that tricked him and ruined his life and wasn't phased by Raphtalia getting all romantic one bit. It's not that he hates women, it's that everything with a vagina and tits remind me of what he had to endure.
He may be better than before Raphtalia comforted him, but he is far from a full recovery.
That was when he first bought her, however, he didn't particularly harbor any extreme hate for women
like Motoyasu. Some fear and suspicion, yes, but that's become utterly irrelevant ever since he accepted Raphtalia. It hasn't even come up again.
The anon I quoted is blatantly spreading misinformation.
That is to say, the only effect on Naofumi is that he's not easily excited by women anymore. He views them equally with men (that is, with suspicion until they've proven themselves).
He's not like Motoyasu who started discriminating against women. Rather, he's become open to the possibility that women can be evil bitches even if they look like good people.
This anon here, talking about Naofumi being 'blinded by rage' and 'having to resist taking out his frustration on Raphtalia and Firo' is completely wrong. Nothing of the sort has ever appeared and I don't know why he ever thought that.
>but I wouldn't call it utterly irrelevant
It pretty much is utterly irrelevant. He doesn't get easily excited and he doesn't show any bias for women
or, in the case of the battle against whip hero, he's not bothered at all by the guy's harem getting angry at him. That's the extent of its effects on the story.
He loved Raphtalia very much. Like a daughter. The real effect of Malty's (not Melty) actions, combined with the other abuse he got from the king, was that he didn't want to stay in their world. So he didn't want to get a harem or have a family/leave descendants with anybody because he just wanted to go back home and didn't want the added responsibility.
Not with Firo. She's pretty annoyed about it and, the next time they meet, she demanded that she also have children with Naofumi.
Orca woman. With a walrus form, after Naofumi experimented on her. She's the voluptuous 'older sister' character in the group.
The LNs likely haven't even reached that point yet where Sadina or Atra would have showed up. Not sure. You'll have to ask the anon scanning pics from the LNs the events of volume 7. All I know is that the spirit turtle's familiar (new character) and the whip hero show up.
One and a half hours have passed and I've read about half of chapter 46.
Starting to learn Japanese was the right idea, even if this is hard. There has been like 90 new words this chapter too, since I didn't start from the beginning.
Still, I haven't ever enjoyed learning so much as right now
Is Firo will grow indefinitely?
She ate everything. When I said everything, it means EVERYTHING in her sight.
After Raph finished grow to her optimal state, she didn't as much like when she was a kid.
Firo ate usapiru, freaking dragon corpse,
2 sharks as snack, almost ate human, and without Naofumi's intervention will become cannibal.
Think for a second, Firo never understand difference between demon, beast, demi-human, human, or corpse with a food.
As long as Naofumi say it's okay to ate it, she will ate it without any qualm.
Damn it, now I'm scared.
yep, its hard but once you got a hang of it's really rewarding, at first i was using MTL along with Jparser and every time i want to read it desperately i would, but since many times i have read chapters i manage to familiarized some words and kanji's and for a long run was able to read a bit, trying to learn the practical way is very hard, taking it easy and trying to adapt to the language is a must try
