18 thoughts on “Qidian charts” - NO SPOILERS and NO CURSING

  1. Thanks for your hard work.
    Nice to see that so many on the all category top list are being translated :).

    I found an error in your list though:
    超时空黑暗交易网 Ultradimensional Black Market is being translated as Galactic Dark Net by Noodletown Translated.

  2. Good job on the translations! I didn’t realize there was a western audience for Chinese web novels until I stumbled upon wuxiaworld a few months ago. I was reading ISSTH and comparing to your translation and was impressed with the quality and speed (most web novel authors can’t even write that fast ;)).

    Anyway, here are my thoughts on the translation of several titles:
    * 异常生物见闻录 -> Memoir about Strange Beings
    The title is referring to the story being a memoir describing strange beings (异常生物 is plural since there are multiple strange beings in the story), instead of a memoir written by a strange being.

    * 颤栗世界 -> Terrifying World
    颤栗 is being used as an adjective, the title is literally “Trembling World”, but I felt Terrifying gets the meaning across better. As for the story itself, it is about people trying out a new virtual-reality game set in a world amidst a zombie apocalypse, being teleported to that world (which is real and has some conspiracies tying to the developers of the game). It have good action scenes and coherent plot, however, the ways the characters act just broke my SOD so I dropped it around a quarter in.

    * 会穿越的外交官 -> The Sliding Diplomat
    It’s referring to a Diplomat who have the ability to slide (travel to different dimensions).

    * 守望黎明号 -> Protecting Dawn
    黎明号 is the name of a vessel, in this case it is a space (colony) ship named Dawn.

    * 神级英雄 -> Godlike Hero
    It’s about the humorous adventures of an innovative (but flawed) player in a worldwide VR game inspired by Heroes of Might and Magic. Many Chinese readers looked down on this story because of its portrayal of geopolitical (yup, geopolitical, VR game is serious business ;)). But I personally just view this story as a satire, everyone/nation got their turn to be the butt of a joke.

    * 篮神 -> God of Basketball
    This or “God of Hoops”.

    * 一剑飞仙
    The title is a homage to the signature sword technique of a master swordmaster in a (old) wuxia classic, but I think given the context of the story (xianxia) this translation is correct. Anyway, I just want to rant on the author 流浪的蛤蟆 (Homeless Toad). He and another popular author are known for never giving a proper ending to their stories. They would create fascinating worlds, filled with interesting characters and coherent plots, tell great stories with them, and then not update for weeks or months, and then suddenly come back and finish the story in a few updates. Naturally, the endings were abrupt and left many plot threads unresolved. Seriously, this guy wrote tens of stories, and I don’t remember one where the ending doesn’t suck (compared to the quality of the rest of the story).

    Anyway, this is all I have time for today. Hope this helps!

  3. Just found out that 天域苍穹 by 风凌天下 on Alternative Fantasy List No. 14 is currently being translate by Rain with title “Realms In The Firmament”.
