TL: I am glad to see that we are able to reach our goal, I am sure it will greatly motivate our editors. I really wanted this chapter to be released early, because this is actually the first chapter I translated and used it to apply for my translator position here. I am sure you can all tell why I choose this chapter to be the first. I applied hopping to co-translate ATF at the time but it turned out ATF was nearly inactive and I ended up as the only translator for it. The next chapter is translated and awaits for editing. Now that Jerry is back, I expect him to take over editing and posting again.

Chapter 55 Magician Girl’s Tournament

In the middle of a quiet garden, where there were songs of birds and sweet scent of flowers, ‘sa sa’ noises were created from the wind brushing against the trees. The sun shining on the trees created patches of shadows on the ground. In the middle of this garden, there was a single black-haired girl dressed in tight martial arts clothes and holding a longsword. She looked like a famous swords master.

The girl was startlingly beautiful. Her fame had already been spread through the entire [Xavier Duchy] and several nearby kingdoms in a short period of half a month. Many rich and powerful people had expressed their interest in her, but all were rejected by the duke.

With her eyes closed, the girl slowly opened them. The already sharp sword aura rose to another level. At a distance, a young man watching felt fear and retreated a few steps. He felt as if he could be instantly beheaded even from such a distance.

“Heaven-Sword Ensemble,  First Technique, Slash”

At the same time as the girl’s shout, the sword shot out a column of bright white light. A sonic boom like an eagle’s howl was released. The boy watching in the distance knew he would never be able to block such a strike.

“Stop” the bright white light travelling towards the wall suddenly vanished. The girl sighed while speaking to herself:

“Finally I am capable of using Heaven-Sword Ensemble’s first technique. I never thought that by being in this peaceful environment, training would take so much longer than it did in Forest of Funerals .

“Madam Lunaria, congratulation on learning a martial arts technique! Now you can use both magic and martial arts.”

“Eek!” Lunaria let out a small shriek. She turned her head to see the young man slowly walking toward her.

“Noah!? Since when were you here? And I told you not to call me madam!”

“The entire time, Luna… Madam Lunaria!”

“HAH! You purposely added madam! You’re obviously trying to mess with me. Is that something a follower should be doing?”

“If Madam Lunaria really thinks that I am her follower, then I will gladly accept such accusation.”

“…” Lunaria was once again angered by Noah’s response. Lunaria wondered what Noah was up to.

“I will not!” Lunaria shouted. She returned her sword to its sheath, quickly turning with her hair flung around, and stormed away from the garden.

Of course Noah was like a sticky glue and followed Lunaria like a shadow without delay.

“Lunaria-chan! I finally found you.”  The voice belonged to the self-proclaimed big sister, Leah.  Although Lunaria had started to call her Leah onee-san, but Lunaria felt a tiny bit awkward when saying it.

 

“Leah onee-san? Did you need me for something?” Lunaria asked while walking up to Leah

Leah looked straight at Noah while praising: “Hmm, not bad, this follower of yours is like a sticky glue.”

The two were shocked from hearing Leah’s words and were unable to respond. After all, why must a follower be like a sticky glue?

“Thank you Madam Leah for the encouragement”

“Yup. Oh right, Lunaria, did you know that a Magician Girl Tournament will be held within the duchy soon?” said Leah while looking at Lunaria with her eyes shining excitedly as if she was looking at her favourite pet. This caused Lunaria to involuntarily take a few steps back. Slightly trembling, Lunaria asked:

“Ma… Magi.. Magishian Girl? ” Lunaria felt Leah’s word had an abnormal tone.

Leah couldn’t keep her act up anymore. She stretched her jade green hands out, grabbed Lunaria’s arms intimately and exclaimed:

“Magician Girl! It’s stated that participants can’t be over 18 and must be a girl! Isn’t this made just for Lunaria-chan!”

Haha she must be teasing me, Lunaria thought, the corner of her mouth twitching a little.

“Leah onee-san, you know I only just started learning magic, not to mention that I am already 17. Wouldn’t I be a bit too old to be joining this kind of tournament?”

“No, not at all. This time’s tournament is being conducted by our duke house’s own strongest [Pheonix] rank, Master Ray Lindauer. The top 10 prizes that is being given is more than enough to lure any 18 year-old magicians.”

“Ray Lindauer … Could he be that one…?” The name sounded very familiar to Lunaria, there seemed to be some bad rumors about him within the duke house.

“That’s right, he is our duke house’s legendary [Emperor of Lolicon]”

Oh, wasn’t he that extraordinary strong guy? Lunaria smacked her forehead realizing who it was. Rumors said this guy was an old man who’s a fanatic about immature girls. If not for other [Phoenix] ranks stopping him, those young ‘flowers’ would all have withered.

“Leah onee-san, are you not trying to feed me to the wolf?! While Ray Lindauer is only conducting on the surface, he probably has other plans!”

“Master Ray Lindauer is only interested in girls under 15, so Lunaria-chan need not worry.” While Leah’s explanation did calm Lunaria down a little, it made it obvious that the old master’s eccentric behavior was beyond helping. Rumor has it that Ray Lindauer used to be called  [Thunder Emperor], but as time passed, only the nickname of [Emperor of Lolicon] remained for that old man.

  1. Tales of speed reading:
    Read Magician Girl Tournament as Magical Girl Tournament.
    After two lines stop….
    Imagine Lunaria transforming like Sailor Moon.
    “WTF!? Magical Girl!??????”
    Go back and read it all again, slower….
    “Ohh!!! Its Magician, not Magical!!!”
    The Image of Lunaria transforming like Sailor Moon is broken into pieces….T_T
    LOL

    Thanks for the translation!

    1. I understand what you mean. I went thru the same experience. xD
      Magician girl and Magical girl are actually the same in kanji. I translated it as Magical girl at first but changed it later to avoid the image you had.

    1. And the rest of his family to boot. In a rather literal sense as well.

      That’s kind of why she doesn’t do it. She has no reason to damn him to fucking oblivion if he doesn’t bother her that much.

  2. ummm… dont really see why you picked this chapter for your translation application… its not bad, but not much happens as it seems like more of a setup chapter than anything.

    Thanks for the chapter! 😀

    1. It’s mainly simple dialogue, along with the fact it has a tsukkomi going on inside it, making it enjoyable to read.

      And it references lolicons.

  3. I wonder what will happen if Tyre fight with Lunaria with same martial arts? maybe Tyre follower will follow Lunaria because she so beautiful🤔

  4. I sincerely request the translator to stop with JP honorofics being using in this CN novel. It feels cringy and i never could take a novel seriously with “chan”, “oni san” and the likes. If the raw has it too then fine but please stop of you’re the one adding it translator. Dnt ruin one of fav novel plz.

    1. Your comment is very interesting because both Izuno and I had a discussion on this and we actually agreed with you. The reason we keep using of “Chan” and “Onee-san” is because of the original translator Naervon used them to replace 妹妹 (Little Sister) and 姐姐(Older Sister) in chapter 13. http://eccentrictranslations.com/atf-chapter-13/
      In Chinese they are 妹妹 (mei mei) and 姐姐 (jie jie), but senior editor Jerry was busy with exams and the original Translator (also the site owner) is kinda mia. So we decided to stay with the Japanese conversion to keep consistency until we can confirm with one of them.

      I could also post a poll and let the readers decide.

    2. I concur, please use the Chinese phonetics. Using Japanese honorifics breaks immersion. I am quite unhappy that that was done .

      My suggestion is use jie-jie mei-mei and the like

  5. Yuhuuuuuuu she is back. I miss her. That Noah guy is really annoyying. He is like shameless stalker. Just fire him already.

    1. Yeah me too…and I wonder what will be their reactions when they will know that Tyre and Lunaria are in fact the SAME person( 1 Soul 2 bodies )….

  6. Tsk why is Lunaria trying to learn martial arts? Tyre might be as well fired as MC as he won’t have any strong points neither in magic nor in martial arts

    1. He have magic nullifying body

      also, maybe his dou qi talent is good (we don’t know about tyre or lunaria regarding that)
      Tyre FTW

      1. *Spoiler, well not really, gets painfully apparent in a few (maybe 20?) chapters*

        In game terms, he stays lvl 1 while his skills keep ranking up.

        Not really a good thing to have no stat points.

      2. I think Tyre and Lunaria are complementary…..so for example if lunaria has 80% in lightning then he has 20%…..ans Lunaria has 0 in(Void? i dont remember) so I think Tyre has 100%!!*Imagine Tyre creating black hole….teleport(spatial door)….*-* *

        1. Oh, don’t worry, this comes MUCH later. Enjoy your Tyre for now.

          Also, we get 9 consecutive chapters of Tyre’s daily life a lot later.

  7. Welcome to translation world

    Hope you have a happy time translating and Hope it improves your languages (as in both English and Chinese)

  8. Random Fact #10
    There is a Holy Empire near the Kingdom that Longtu comes from.

    And hey! I see that you changed your name to ‘MxHe’.

    .
    .
    .
    TFW you realize ’10/22′ and so on is not rough percentage done, but release date of next chapter.

    1. well I’m a bit disappointed by how this is evolving
      at first we got to see each side alternating in one chapoter or at least some reference to the other side
      but right now it’s more like two MC somehow related

    2. Did a poll on the Chinese Chat Group for the novel a few hours ago.

      Only 14 people participated.

      Tyre 5, Luna 9.

      It does matter, mate.

      It does matter, a lot.

      Update: Tyre 16, Luna 18

  9. As I thought lunaria will be op with her magic and sword skills.

    (I’m no a lolicon but I wish to see long tu in that bed I thought there will be at lease 1 more ch., I’m also wondering if long tu return back to 12 yrs old?)

  10. Hi i wanna join the translation team but your contact us page does not seem to load. Please email so i pass you my partially translate chap via google docs

    1. Great. Darklord is our chief recruiter and will be working with you. as for partially translated chaps. I will gladly look at it if you can pass the info to Darklord. I hope its not the upcoming 5 chaps tho. as those are already translated as promised for the goal and in the hands of the editors.

  11. Thanks for the chapter desu~

    I read it in one go… It really is an interesting and funny story I should say. I like both Lunaria and Tyre, the two of them are strong, though I feel like Lunaria is too much since she can use both magic and martial arts. This is just me amusing myself, but since Lunaria cannot use space magic, won’t be awesome if Tyre has talent for it more than 90%? That way, both really complement each other.

    Anyway, thanks for translating this story. I’m definitely looking forward to the next chapter.

  12. I’m just wondering, does ATF have a regular release schedule? If so can someone tell me? It’s frustrating to wait in suspense without knowing.

    1. I was previously announcing the next release date. But I had a business trip on the last week of almost every month. I did leave 5 chapters with the editors. now that Jerry is back I thought he was going to post them …
