For the few people complaining about the release times for Arifureta compared to Requiem to the Stars, please note that I’ve already written Requiem to the Stars. All I’m doing is releasing chapters once a week that are already written. Also note there is a big difference between a 1800-2000 word chapter written in english by me, and a 3000-4000 word behemeth that I have to translate one line at a time. So I must reiterate, my release time for Arifureta is NOT affected by Requiem.
Which brings me to why I’m writing this… I’m trying to release Arifureta one chapter every 2 weeks. That’d make this weekend the release time for my next chapter. I’m about half done with the chapter.
Would you… the readers… like me to release Arifureta in half-chapters so that my release times are faster? The thought being if I only have to translate 1000-2000 words at a time, I’d be a lot more able to do that then take on 4000 word chunks. (Yes, in a perfect world, I would utilize my time wisely and spend two weeks slowly taking an hour a day translating, but let’s face it, this ain’t my job and I release usually the same day I translate, which right now, takes about 4-6 hours per chapter).
I can’t promise you it’ll lead to faster chapters… but it might lead to more frequent updates. Just a thought. Give me your opinion. 2-3 weeks for full chapters, or 1000 word chunks every week or so. You decide.
