GDC NOTE2 min read

Hey there everyone, Addis here with a note about GDC.

So, as most of you noticed, we only released one chapter last weekend instead of the two we’ve been doing for several weeks. While most of you have been appreciative for our hard work, there has been around a 20% backlash on us from fans. In a normal chapter, we get around 120 comments from readers. With only one release this week, we had another 35 comments (that have since been deleted) as well as emails to us complaining and criticizing us for not releasing a second chapter.

I was just not going to say anything, but it was becoming such a common comment an email over the last 4 days (yes, 4, because people started complaining even before we released chapter 99), that I wanted to clarify something to all of our readers.

With the influx of readers due to GDC, we have gotten more rude comments. Most of you do not deign to comprehend that we are real people behind the scenes. We all go to school, have jobs, have families and real life issues just the same as you do. When we get an email that says, “Why didn’t you do two chapters?” “Where’s the other chapter?!! >:(“ “Waiting for that next chapter!” “Why are you not releasing another chapter!!??” “If you’re not releasing the next chapter, I might as well MTL.” “I am so disappointed you guys didnt do 2 chapters!” It may seem like an innocent question in your eyes, but when you receive 20ish of those questions daily, it becomes a very rude thing to ask.

One of the things I have always said is that we will never drop a project. We will always finish it, even if we have to go through 10 translators before we see the last chapter. Please do not try to rush us, we will finish the novel. Most of you didn’t even realize that chapter 99 was the same length of 97 and 98 combined. It’s these little things readers fail to notice in their excitement to read the next chapter.

So, as a reminder, please be courteous, respectful, do not post spoilers and do not ask for us to hurry up or why we didn’t do more than one release.

We will get the novel finished before June. Please be patient.

Thanks,

Addis

New Novel
Happy 2 year Anniversary!

Hi,
I would like to say that when you receive 1 rude comment, there are 1000 people who cherish the hard work of you.
If it could be in french and in spanish, you would be seen as God for us.
So don’t forget this rule :

1 rude comment = 1000 silent happy people

happy valentine day !

These people are a scourge, they’re in every fansub… novels or comics, they don’t care. I hope, our sincere thanks, weighs a lot more than bad words. Is difficult, but, don’t get worked up. You don’t need an ulcer!!

So sorry to hear that… i know when we read a story that we love so much sometimes it’s feels like it’s so short! But! GDC’s chapters NEVER short!!! I like to read it twice everytime 😆 so i have to scroll up to reread it again. Or sometimes i just go up again to see the part that I like. Everytime i scroll up i always thought ‘this chapter is so long!’ I have to scroll it for quite long before i get to the top. So please be patient. I read in others translations group too. And i… Read more »

Honestly you all update MUCH faster than I was expecting when I first began reading the novel. Two chapters a week on average? That’s a lot! I wasn’t expecting more than a chapter a month if that. I’m sorry people are like that. Translation isn’t easy. If they’re not happy with your speed, they can (try to) find someone faster! I eagerly await the next chapter, of course, but not enough that I forget there are actual real humans that are the ones that translate it. Thank you again. Please, take time to yourselves and your families and friends as… Read more »

thank you for your hard work. your team already do such a great job at having regular releases. i haven’t started reading GDC novel version (i was planning to read it all in one go once it’s translated). i saw the GDC anime and recently started on the manga/mahwa (not good with the right terms). it’s really a wonderful story. i’m really grateful that your team is doing all the best at translating it and all, and sharing it with us. i think if i was waiting for another chapter, i would just go and re-read it from the start… Read more »

“EYES WIDE OPEN” OMG I enjoy and love this novel, didn’t think there were reader like that. Well I don’t usually comment and just have fun reading the comments but that was so very rude no wonder there are other people translators who stops their works. (ex. Waiting for you online) Bias 😛 Well if they want to read the chapters continuously… they should just go the raw website and just google translate or better buy the books… Dear Addis, I am so thankful to you, that you and the team translating this wonderful novel patiently cause honestly if I’m… Read more »

I’m sorry these idiots don’t understand that apart from translating for free for fun, people need to work/study to live in the real world too. :/

Please don’t pay any note to those comments. They clearly don’t understand how hard it would be to juggle between RL and this. I mean, I barely have any time to read these days! And reading at least 100 chapters of anything every day is something I have done for a long time! I’m quite surprised that we get the amount of chapters we do atm, because they are so long! I noticed this at the start but the fact that so much people are not appreciating your hard work just irritates me! I mean, even I want to read… Read more »

Please don’t listen to them. This novel is absolutely beautiful and thanks to your efforts, I’m going to consider buying the novel even though I can’t read mandarin myself. Thank you thank you so much for all your efforts! Y’all are the reason that I have something to keep me going every single week. I can wait for a whole year and still join my hands saying “MY SAVIOUR HAS SPOKEN”.

I LOVE YOU GUYS SO MUCH FOR TRANSLATING THE NOVEL TO US FOR FREE!! WHEN YOU GUYS STARTED TO POST 2 CHAPTERS A WEEK I STARTED TO GET WORRIED BECAUSE IT SOUNDED LIKE YOU GUYS WERE WORKING TOO MUCH. In my mind I thought I hope you guys are fine and not overworking this project. I’m so sad to hear that there are still people who commands more and are disrecpectful. We are very lucky to have you guys and we love you very much!! 🙁

Does my head in when people complain about things like this. I really don’t know what they think they will achieve, other than to spoil it for everyone else who really does appreciate everything you are doing. This is a lovely story, and I live for updates, but would never presume to pressure any of you.

Thank you for our hard work. It’s not easy to translate and have a normal life. And you are doing different project each day. So big thank you for this. I hope that people who complain stop. I understand that everyone want to read next chapter and know what next. Belive me – I would also want to know especially since I don’t know chinese but I understand also that you have a life. So, please don’t rush. Life is life and nothing is more important than this. I hope that tgey soon understand it to.
One more big thank you.

I once sent an email to you guys to thank you for allowing me to read GDC.

I will continue to thank you for your hardwork and patience. I’ll be one of those people who will patiently and silently (happily) wait for you to provide us another chapter of GDC.

More power to your Team ☺️
