☯ ISSTH Chapter 919 ☯

Hey everybody, it’s been a long time since I made a recommendation. Littleshanks of Reddit fame has been translating Rebirth of the Thief Who Roamed the World by Mad Snail. It’s the same author as Tales of Demons and Gods, except that this is a completed work, and one that is quite beloved by fans. Shanks convinced me to take a look recently and I got hooked! I don’t have the time to read many translations nowadays, and this is one of the only ones on my list. Check it out!

Chapter 919. Translator: Deathblade. Translation Checker: anonpuffs. Chinese Grammar Consultant: Madam Deathblade. Proofreaders: Courtrecords, GNE, and Lingson. Meme Archives: joeljbright. Memes: Shu. Master of Cuteness: Baby Deathblade.

This is the 12th chapter of the week!

  1. MUHAHAHAHA i already started this a few days ago and got hooked when FBT recommending it after dropping MGA. Thanks for the chapter also. Thanks Patriarch DB for spreading the word

  2. Thanks for your hard work translating DB.

    As for Mad Snail – I really think he’s such a douche for abandoning or at least be half-hearted in completing his current uncompleted novel(s) to start a new one. From what i read on the forum, this is not the first time he has done so – he neglected another novel to start TDG. I don’t know if there were any earlier prior incidences of such offence

    I really do think that readers should penalize him by not reading his works anymore and most certainly not giving him any of those 月票 (not sure but it’s some sort of payment to the author?) that ErGen frequently requests for.

    His actions (which he tries to cover-up with easily blown excuses) really leave a reader of the neglected novel hanging and left with sub-standard writing. Analogous to husband who leaves his wife and children to gallivant with a new mistress – why should the children ( ie readers) support him?

    For the same reason, I did not start reading the novel that a translator started translating here as he abandoned a previous translation. And voila! he did another disappearing act on the new translation.

    1. Yeah I know about that stuff. However, like I mentioned, this translation is complete and was well-received. Refusing to read it because of Mad Snail’s later madness would be like refusing to watch 6th Sense because Avatar: The Last Airbender.

      1. yes, I did note that it’s completed but still I don’t want to read any more Mad Snail’s work.

        The stunt he pulls is a factor but it’s primarily me reading quite a few things already (not only wuxia/xianxia), kdramas, chinese dramas, US shows, UK shows, study and work – so time is a limited resource that I do not want to allocate to any MadSnail’s work. There’s tons of other stuff to read that’s good too.

        anyway, The Land Airbender LOL

  3. DB any chance you can give a ballpark of when the old turtle (patriarch reliance) comes back into the picture? I mean he is Meng Hao’s really true dao protector so he must be beyond incredibly powerful but I guess that’s why he isn’t in the picture atm since then Meng Hao wouldn’t have any problems

  4. I cannot wait for the fight to break out with this bitch Fang Hong; I am so glad Meng Hao punch her, she deserved that punch so much, I am glad it finally was delivered, I am looking even more to everything else that is coming to her, it is going to be a great few chapters hopefully 🙂

    Keep up the good work DeathBlade!!
    Also, to Madam DeathBlade and Baby DeathBlade: Keep up the heavenly Dao like support you provide Master DeathBlade, he could never have gotten this far in his cultivation without the both of you; I would like to personally thank you for that *bow*.
