“Chrome Shelled Regios” Fan Translation Continues

Volume 1 of Chrome Shelled Regios

The recently started fan translations for the “Chome Shelled Regios” light novels are still going strong.

Just little more than 15 days ago, they completed translation of the second novel, which means both volume’s 1 and 2 are now available to read. The prologue and first chapter for the third novel are translated and the translation for the rest of the third novel continues to go forward.

Because of the failures of light novel’s to have yet captured a large and sustainable enough audience in the US (let alone any english speaking country or region), fan translations have become somewhat the saviour for the niche industry. Without them, continued interest by non-Japanese reading fans might have dwindled completely, till nothing was left.

Sure the translation quality can vary from good to bad, but in the end, we get to read them, and that’s really the whole point. Right? 😉

As always, feel free to voice your opinion below. But as always, remain civil and polite.

    I have most of the translated CSR novels (thanks to Baka-Tsuki). I am looking for the translations of volumes 14 – 16. Also looking for GOOD translations of the Full Metal Panic novels from vol. 5 on

Welcome To Ranobe Cafe!

This marks the english speaking world's first dedicated light novel blog, bringing you news and views from the english perspective on light novels. We are more than just a blog about light novels though, we also stand in awe of the many other literary works crossing over to the West from Japan. So expect to also see articles that dabble from time to time in Cell Phone Novels and Japanese Sci-Fi works, to mention a few.

So come all you light novel enthusiasts! Come one and all! We may be a niche, and may represent one of the smallest markets in these economically troubled times, but we are also one of the most dedicated! So let us come together and support the industry we love and hold so dearly!
