Light and Shadow


Unfortunately, I’ve made the decision not to continue with this project for the time being. It’s an amazing story, and the raws are technically available for free, but I don’t have the time to translate it at the moment. Fan translating is an investment with horrible returns to begin with (or, fan translating in the truest “for fans by fans” sense, anyway. In my eyes, any “fan translation” that receives any kind of monetary support is an illegal translation), and I do not feel as though I have the leeway to take on another project when I know that I will get absolutely nothing out of the time I’ll be putting into it in return.

I might revisit it again sometime in the future after I’ve completed F and/or after my IRL schedule has settled somewhat. Technically, I have started to translate further past the current teaser (I translate Korean so much faster than Japanese it’s almost sad), but I don’t have any plans to release them anytime soon. I was considering stockpiling chapters to release at a steady pace once my IRL business calms down a bit, but I don’t know if I’ll be able to keep it up and am hesitant to take up that obligation.

My official stance is that Rainy Translations will not be picking up Light and Shadow. Unofficially, I might revisit that decision in the future, but please don’t bank on that.

Thank you for all your support for and comments on the teaser chapters and for your understanding.
