Letter from Fuse-sensei

初めまして!

Pleased to meet you!
I could not send an email to your personal address, so I responded this way
(Clown notes: I included my email in the message I sent him on ncode.syosetsu.com)

現在、米国での出版のお話はありませんので、それまではこのWEB版に関してでしたら、翻訳を無料公開するのを黙認致します。
あくまでも僕(=作者)としてですので、出版社が問題ありと判断した場合には、取り下げてもらう形になるかも知れません。
権利等の譲渡は致しませんので、それを踏まえた上での活動をお願いします。

At the moment, since there are no plans to publish the novel in the United States, and as long as it is limited to the web novel, I will give your free and public translation my tacit consent. Do note that this is my statement as the author, and should the publisher have problems with it, the decision might be different. I am not transferring any rights to you, so please continue with the above in mind.
(Clown notes: So basically, continue as you like until the publisher gets upset. So as long as the publisher does not contact me or the author does not change his mind, I am now translating this work completely legally.)

※ファン活動として楽しんでもらえるなら、そこまで煩く言うつもりはないので、是非とも皆で楽しんで下さい!

Since fans can enjoy (my work) as a result, I am not planning on making noise about it; so, everyone, enjoy!

We can now continue the project without fearing a subpoena from the Japanese government!

  1. Now then Clown, it’s time to get back to work. You heard Fuse-sensei, get back to translating.

    But seriously, glad to see he sounds like a nice guy, just wanting to write stories about slimes.

  2. ….I really hope no one gets angry about this…(Not living in United States or any large English speaking country so if this translation ends,will probably have to give up on this novel…Unless I immigrate to another country…)
