    Last week "Steel-Winged Pegasus" notified us on discord about a new translation of Cots 1 available at Amazon and at Barnes and Noble.

    As she has bought it recently the translation didn't turn out quite as expected such as Lafiel being Lafier....

    Hopefully it's going to be just minor differences.

    As long as everything is consistent and they get all novels done. I would be very happy.
    Tokyopop as not consistent at all. Anyhow, I think they are making a better job overall. But I admit I'm not too happy about a lot of those liberties or choices. Like the Kryuno now called "compuwatch". By all means it's not a watch wrist-comp would be much better.

    I know their other translations are generally good except for typos and grammar blunders. They were easy to spot but there were times I had to wonder whether it could have other meanings/reasons.

    "Compuwatch" sounds like something Apple would come out with...so now we know the truth...the Abh are really behind Apple! Laughing

    All joking aside though, I expect since the anime has been out fans would be wanting better.

    Thanks to members finding the image I was able to track it down.

    Anyhow, J-Novel is already working on Bots3. The pace hasn't changed so we will definitely get to sns6 next year.

    Bosts 2 was released today but Bots3 is nowhere to be found.
    I doesn't seem like it's officially in the work now. There's no information. So I dunno what's going on.
    Maybe the current covid-19 has put all plans in doubt. There's no scheduled past April.

    It may not be the coronavirus it could be something rather mundane like taking time to copy read to make sure everything is correct.Then again who really knows?

    I had a little trouble finding the Banner of the Stars 3 most of you probably already have it but here's a link for those finding it difficult to find. https://www.amazon.ca/gp/product/B085TD3HYJ/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_d_asin_title_o00?ie=UTF8&psc=1

    Yeah, for some reason linking and searching on J-novel club has degraded as far as Seikai novels go.
    And still nothing has been scheduled yet beyond Bots3 either or at list not listed in the next cycle.
    So it seems likely translation may not proceed for some time or not at all. But I think we should wait for the next 2nd cycle to be certain which should be around December or January.

    My theory is either the licenses have not been approved or revoked or there's problem with translators (left or overtaxed) or less likely
    Sunrise plans to animate Bots4+ and wants to keep the rest of the world in suspension.
    I doubt that, though, because the best course of action is to announce it to curb fan interest.
