DMCA

Got hit by DMCA.

So ya, took down old chapters and no more new chapters.

Will get back with updates.

Oh man……this novel is never seeing an end.

Not sure if it is from the original copyright holder.

Will try to contact the author and try to continue.

  1. Out of all the people who have picked this up, why are you the one getting hit with a DMCA? Why couldn’t it have been Meteor who doesn’t even wanna work on this or any novel….

    1. Now that I think about it, Mete would be Meteor at Rebirth who contacted you right? Possible it may be the same person who got you DMCA’d…..well, worst case, just go with Rebirth. At least we’d still get Konjiki and Rebirth would take any legal trouble instead of you.

      1. I had been trying to contact meteor even before all this had happened.
        But, they are not returning my emails.
        I just sent a fresh mail and honestly, I can do nothing if I don’t get a reply.
        Hoping things work out somehow otherwise this is pretty much over.

  2. Might be best to contact someone else over at Rebirth. Try their Discord….worst case, try messaging one of the other Rebirth team members. I don’t think contacting Meteor is gonna get you anywhere.

    1. Thing is I never got to talk directly with Mete either.
      I had been talking with Rebirth all along as they had been mediating between us.
      Looks like I have gotten on their bad side. They are not communicating, I have been DMCA’d. All great things.
      Btw on the off note, I am about 90% sure I got DMCA’d by someone resenting me. Not any original copyright holder.
      If it is true and this is how someone treats a translator who is desiring to take up a job actively, then it is a big loss.

  3. Rebirth is acting like little bitches , seriously your translation was a lot better than their mtl gatbage.

    Any chance you can file a dmca counter claim or are there any obvious symptoms such as the dmca coming from a shady yahoo or hotmail address.

      And as for shady……I do think so. But really how to confirm that?
      As for counterclaim, Let’s see what can be done.

      1. I hope you can work something out….even worst case, you could try doing it through Asian Hobbyist. On the plus side, Meteor hates them 🙂 b

  4. I don’t think there’s a problem with them myself, but most translation groups seem to hate them. They’re more the translate for profit type of group. If a series doesn’t get enough attention, they tend to drop it without notice. I think Konjiki would get attention, so…give it a shot if you have no other option.

    1. Before I forget, Baka-Tsuki has a page dedicated to Konjiki that doesn’t usually get updated, so you can try asking them to host as well.

      1. Hey man thanks. You are being very helpful.
        I am exploring a few options too myself.
        This being the first DMCA in 315 chapters, it is quite evident that it would look fishy to anybody.
        Oh well. what is done is done. Will keep you posted, thanks!

    2. Haha Asian Hobbyist here.
      Well, people take the side of crappy translators and even MTL crap that it baffles me.
      I can host you on a subdomain if you like.
      Someone commented on my website about the novel and that’s how I found myself here.
      Best of luck to you.
      Don’t let elitist who don’t reply to comments or emails keep you down

  5. well that was expected from you know who.’we don’t need to name’ and
    ‘the reason i dropped this from my fav’

    anyway i got my hopes up with your translation but we got this now. but you still can do it like we do it on the free net side like “Zeronet” and just post one reddit and you don’t need to host it anymore the internet is like a MagiBox just drop things there and will multiply

    NOTE: but i must admit, i think you foresaw this coming from your title “firetranslations – waiting for the end to come”

    1. What can I say, if a translator who wanted to see through this gets DMCA’d. Specially when you realize no one before me got the notice.
      It does not take a genius to figure out what happened.

      1. Well, I am still waiting for the author. Since I have gotten DMCA’d once, albeit the source……but well, I need a confirmation from his end.

  6. Well, I hope you do get a positive response, but I wouldn’t get your hopes up on the author giving an ok, or even noticing your trying to contact them. People rarely get responses. I know I’ve said it, but releasing through other groups might be safer.

  7. Too be honest, it really sad!
    I been reading this novel since Blazing Translations Group.
    It been transfer again and again.
    Most active translator usually got DMCA or quit because of real life problems.

    @Agni – Thank for those few chapters and I hope to see you continue this novel again. Best regard

  8. So how have things been? I’m guessing you haven’t been able to get in contact with the author, but have you had any other ideas?

  9. Haha, procrastinating friend.
    Hm, I say I really did lose interest after what happened.
    Not defending myself cuz that is just an excuse but……you know, I have had such a wonderful relationship with a certain website that, basically……I have grown disinterested.
    Guess I will just fade away.
    I am starting to feel bad for readers like you. It is marvellous how earnest you have been towards me. Thank you. If I had gained anything positive from all these, it was having wonderful people like you read whatever little releases I had done.
    I am sorry I won’t be able to live up to your expectations mate……really sorry.

    1. I’m sorry to hear that. I was so hoping that this great series would finally get a regular translator away from that lazy bastard Meteor. Well, if you ever change your mind, I hope you’ll consider some of my ideas. Thanks for trying.
