  10. Narcolepticmunchkin says:

    Just asking, when the day Cow (M***acow) finished scanlating the manhwa, cow said that their team won’t pick up the novel translation project because this series novels has so many old (I mean old enough to be categorized as ancient) Korean phrases / idioms and lots of misc. untranslatable that make translating this series feels like trying to defeat a horde of derpfestor, does it really true ?

  47. Shubhendu says:

    Is there a possibility that the manga would resume in anybtime soon.Because it has really interesting characters and storyline as well as the way of explaining the martial arts topics and historic topics.If it is resuming anytime soon let the fans know

  48. Please, I beg of thee, of anyone. Provide me some information of where or what has happened to this translation
