  1. I’m so excited to read this! The manga and anime were great, but I’m really looking forward to enjoying this story in its original format. :D

  2. I’m curious if you’ve read the original Japanese LN before and what do you feel about the two in terms of accuracy of translation. I have been itching to get my hands on the Chinese one to compare since my Japanese is rusty at best and I had read the fan translations in English many years back. If the official English version is up to par I would love to own a copy.
