About volume 1

Post  dim1 on Wed May 09, 2012 10:47 pm

I bought the english version of volume 1 of Moonlight Sculptor and it's chapters run from 1-13 not 1-10. Just thought I should let you guys know. Not sure if this matters though, Also keep up the good work can't wait for chapter 20

Does your Chapter 13 equal our chapter 13 of Volume 2?

if you look at the disclaimers on top of the chapter 11 to 13 they say its the official translation of volume one not theirs and that has been there since the start

As far as I've heard they just attached the 3 chapters from volume 2 to the volume 1 book because they couldn't translate any further and having 3 chapters' worth of work go down the drain just didn't cut it for them. That's just hearsay though so keep that in mind. The original books as far as I know, hold 10 chapters.

@Sugarpie
don't know for how long you have been around?!?
but i dont think the author makes to much money with this?!?
and you noticed that he reads this form (at last once)!
and that he allowed this free translation as long as nobudy uses it for commercial gain!
or where you just joking?!?

-Been in OSS for about an year now.
-The author is one of the most popular + best selling authors in Korea
-He reads this forum? I don't care
-He said that distribution + translation has only been allowed up to Volume 5.
-He's been stretching this novel forever... There's gonna be at least up to 45+ volumes

Well, he's only allowed distribution up to Volume 5... But everyone uploads them anyway (You can usually find a .txt file, aka a typed up text file of the volume about 4-5 days after the official release in stores). Of course... He sues those people... But they weren't doing it for profit, and they are usually students (so not a legal adult yet) so they easily get away with it with a lecture from the police. Despite all these stuff happening... The author seems to have all the leisure time he wants and the money. I read his blog and its filled with... vacation stories and stuff

It was worth it

Post  dim1 on Mon May 14, 2012 8:27 pm

Actually having those extra three chapters left the book on a good closing cliffhanger. It had them flying into the sky towards the city in the heaven at the end. Made me wanna buy volume 2 if they ever release it.

does it really matter

Post  tarrangar on Thu May 17, 2012 4:33 pm

lms is an epic series so does it really matter that much that he changed it to 9 chapters it is probably not because he will earn more that way because he wont. the book will still cost the same i think its because making ten chapter within the time he has to make 1 volume might be stressing him. he also need time to think up good ideas for the story,so he probably cut of a chapter in order to get a bit more time to himself.it must be hard work always being on a deadline. and nobody want him to have a breakdown because then he would be releasing nothing new at all
