As the title says, I've finally decided on what webnovel I'll be working on. Seirei Gensouki ~Konna Sekai de Deaeta Kimi ni~ (Mythical Spirit Chronicle ~On this world where I met you~). I'll have zgmfx09a add it to the project list along with all the required pages and links the next chance I get. Someone else has actually already started translating this webnovel on their own blog, but I've asked for and recieved his permission to translate this series on my own from the beginning again.
With that said, unfortunately, I won't be able to do a New Years release since it took me much longer than I expected to decide what webnovel to translate (there were a lot of factors to keep in mind such as the current status of the novel, translation difficulty, etc.). However, I've already finished translating the first chapter and it is now in the editting phase. I'll try to get that done as well as finish more chapters in time for a release tomorrow, but if I am unable to do a release tomorrow, then releases will have to wait an additional 3-4 days as I'm usually busy on the weekend no matter what time of year.
edit: I can't believe I forgot about this. Here's a translation of the synopsis for Seirei Gensouki.
Amakawa Haruto, a young man who died before reuniting with his childhood friend who disappeared five years ago. Rio, a boy living in the slums who wants revenge for his mother who was killed when he was five years old.
Earth and another world. Two people who have completely different backgrounds and values, but for some reason, the memories and personality of Haruto who should've died resurrected in Rio's body.
As the two are confused over their memories and personalities fusing together, Rio (Haruto) decide to live in this new world.
For some reason, along with Haruto's memories, Rio awakened an unknown "special power," and it seems that if used well, he can live a better life than he does now.
But before that, Rio encountered the princess kidnapping incident of the Bertram Kingdom he lives in.
Saving the princesses, Rio was accepted into the state managed Royal Academy. Being an orphan in a school for nobles, it was an extremely destestable place to him.
