Special Thanks

I know this is usually at the bottom or somewhere out of the way, that's why I'm putting it on top to make people at least know of their names :P

AnmesicCat from for helping to get this site up and running.
Ishman (servant of the Big, Fat, Cat, not the one above of course)for being my primary editor.

EC - The First Generation


The series mostly follow a party of four in their adventure in a system which the manufacturer called Total Immersion Entertainment System (TIES) in the distant future (something like a VR game). Earth underwent a new form of apocalyptic disaster known as the Aurora events. In combination with the lack of fossil fuels, the "modern" world ended and had started anew with a different emphasis on the dominating technologies.

This series can be classified as Seinen, Adventure, Tragedy (although one can just argue it's technically slice of life :P there will be deaths, actually starts with one), Sci-fi and Comedy (slapstick-ish).

Some help with characters since some people couldn't tell how old they from my choice of words to describe them.
Bell - Woman (Young-ish)
Kun - Young Adult
Rick - Older Teen(Youth)/Almost Young Adult
Till - tween/young teenager

  1. If AnmesicCat from help set this up, wouldn't it be better just to post it at Japtem?

  2. No, Japtem is hosting on their own server, paid out of their own pocket. Hosting this there will just put more load on their server and drain their resource.

    1. The old baka-tsuki is okay, but with the influx of the newer mods made it a pain to deal with (as was the case with re:monster)... I don't feel like dealing with them, I'm not sure if this belongs there in any case since it was never formally published (unlike the other series on there). I didn't even thought of putting it on mangaupdate if someone else didn't do it in the first place.

    2. I didn't thought it would be so much trouble. BT provides a good interface though. And solution for your server problem. May be you can join with some other group? There are some who just post on google docs. At your convenience though.

    3. It was originally on google docs, I'd moved it to a blog because people for some reason have trouble loading the docs there (especially with tablets, tried it myself). It was annoying enough that someone had put it on a blog of their own, so I might as well make one of my own instead.

      I'm part of the re:translation team, I don't feel like joining up with another group. We just don't have our own server and we are pretty ad-hoc. Editors and TLers move around quite a bit, and none of our project are centralized save for the project page. Putting it here is good enough of a compromise.

    4. Well, as far as blogs go, between Blogger and WP I prefer the latter as an interface, but to each their own, I suppose.

    1. should be fixed now, let me know if anymore link breaks. Adding volume to the chapters might have screwed up some of the existing links.

  4. volume 2 chapter 2 just links to table of contents

  5. Fix now, thanks for letting me know, forgot to update the link last week.

  6. Hi there. Thanks for uploading translations of this work, I have really enjoyed reading them so far.

    Also, v1c4's link is broken in the table of contents.
    Currently it's linked to:
    Working link:

    =) I had to snoop around to find the real post.

  7. Can u put a full text like they do in BT and Japtem? like, one volume in one page.

  8. Thank for you for the translations

    1. Volume 1:

  10. Volume 1 and 2, Light and Dark ePub:

  11. ya know what? LOVE YA TRANSLATOR!!

  12. i don't know why but i can't find the name of this LN here? i might be overlooking, like seriously but please someone tell me the name!! please....

  13. ok my bad, the name is EC (web novel)

  14. sorry but i would limit my posts and questions to this one post
    1. what LN is this whose link u gave here
    2. what is the status of Souen no Historia? there are 24 chapters here. so did u complete the first volume? also are u translating the LN or the WN?
    lastly, THANK YOU SO MUCH TRANSLATORS, your hard voluntary work makes it possible to read all these wonderful stories. thank you so very much.

    1. That's the epub version for mobile devices done by one of the reader (Yuki).

      Souen is done by Endo, but real life is steamrolling him like the rest of us, to the point that there haven't been any Ari for a while.

      Quite a few of us do it cause we want to share the amazing stories, although it's becoming murky with all the for-pay translations. Summer is coming around the corner, so I'm not sure if there will be more releases cause TLers in school will have more time to TL, or there will be less releases cause TLers take vacations~ Enjoy nevertheless~

  15. 6(mid) links to which shows a content not found error, please fix

  16. O.O why blogspot though? I think it would be better at wordpress. Well, just being able to read it is enough! Thanks for the translation!

  17. When you say seinen what exactly do you mean? Is this wn mature in the gore or sexual department?

    1. Both, when it goes seinen, it can go pretty deep and out of the blue. I usually put a warning that the chapter contains seinen content. I won't put in the reasons, just a general rating like seen in TV/Movie ratings, to prevent potential spoilers.

  18. Um, seems like the TOC hasn't been updated in a while?

    1. Argh... damn it, I will get to it later. Thanks for reminding me.

  19. Just posting this comment with the links for the 4 chapters of Great Merchant that immediately follow the prequel since they're not in the TOC yet (so other people don't have to go digging for them).
    GM 01
    GM 02
    GM 03
    GM 04

    1. Thanks... I keep forgetting to update the ToC... >.<

  20. Thank for the translations!! I start to love great merchant dao ming!!

  21. Are you ever going to continue EC? T_T I miss it.
