The sages said, read ISSTH Book 1, Chapter 25!

I Shall Seal the Heavens

Well, the time has come for Meng Hao to figure out how epic his loot really is. How many Spirit Stones is that wooden sword worth anyway? 10? 100? 1,000? And what about the crusty Demonic core? Will it even work any more, or will Meng Hao need to soak it in some Coke for a while to clean it off? Hey, that works for pennies, why not Demonic cores?

Sorry for the super late release today!

I have to share a translation frustration with y’all. When I first came to China, I used to watch a show called 非诚勿扰, or “If you are the one.” It’s a Chinese dating show that was super popular at the time, and I watched it PRIMARILY for language learning purposes, and definitely not the dozens of hot Chinese girls on the show.

Anyway, the host of the show is a relatively famous guy named Meng Fei. I kind of liked his hosting style, so his name has always stuck in my mind. Long story short, his name tends to pop up accidentally instead of Meng Hao’s sometimes. I can type pretty fast (about 80-90 WPM), so sometimes the words that come out of my fingers are beyond my control. Couple this with the fact that the last character in Wang Tengfei’s name is “fei,” more than a few “Meng Fei” have slipped into my original drafts.

Of course, they are all caught by the proofreaders, but every time I have to go back and fix the mistake, I laugh to think about Jiangsu TV’s Meng Fei battling with flying swords and popping Demonic Cores into his mouth. Haha.

By the way, I accidentally left comments open yesterday for the sneak peak chapter. To be fair, I went back and cleared them so everyone has a fair chance to comment first on the new chapter. T__T

  1. Deathblade you cheater… First you accidentally leave the comments open, then you delete all the people that commented. That’s cruel! Making us pay for your transgression!
    (Ok, fine. You only deleted the comments, not the people… Still cruel.)

    1. Would be really cool if the post on the homepage would be short, with a ‘read more’ link to this page which would be the long update.
      If Gravitytranslations can manage that, you should as well!

    1. A long time ago, it used to be all hot girls. Then they started adding a variety of women. I’m not sure how the show is now, I haven’t watched it in years.
