As some of you have noticed, other translation groups have picked up and released their own versions of vol 6 to 8. As far as I am concerned, this is fine, since I myself am unable to do it due to college work. Xia too, just started a 12 hours 6-days-a-week job and can’t put time towards this.
Now, I’d already released the link to all the chapters of volume 6 (translated by Mr. Graverobber) in a previous post, but I think many here missed that post, so I’ll link it again at the bottom.
I’d also come across a translation of Volume 7 which was quite readable. I do not know the translator, however, I think he was the reader who was kind enough to bring this translation to our notice in one of the comments. The link to the same will be posted below.
As for future work on Shadows, if Shadows is dropped by the other groups when I’m relatively free (which will be after May), I will continue from where they dropped off. Alternatively, if translation quality is so bad that it is practically Google Translate, I might redo those chapters here again.
NOTE: Chapter 143 is not missing. Vol 7 TL-er uses the chapter numbers on Narou (The Character Introduction was marked as Chapter 1 on Narou), which is why its shown as 144. However, Chapter 144 is Chapter 143 to us, and so on.

TLN: Mr. Graverobber
TLC: Cool nicknames got to be long
EDIT: (Not edited yet)
LINKS: Not edited
Note: My non-edited chapters are unlike Vercingetorix’s non-edited chapters, I will not upload to NU till the chapters until it gets Edited. Brain damages are incurable.
So college has been busting my ass and I really am not able to find much time to go over the translations. There were suggestions in the comments asking to release the chapters as they are, given that the translation is already done (by Mr.Graverobber).
I’m gonna take up that suggestion and will be posting a link to the chapters for those who wish to read them as is. Frankly, this arc has been a bit boring for me (Curse you, Yukime), and that has affected my pace as well. I will still be checking and releasing chapters at slower rate (maybe once or twice a week) till the end of this arc.
What are No-index and robots text
No-index is a line on the meta of the site, which tells search engines such as Google to not to index the site. However, it’s up to the search engine to respect it or ignores it.
Robots text or robots.txt is basically this files on our site. It’s basically telling bots crawlers to not to crawl on our sites. Of course, this is also up to them to respect it or ignores it.
Why this matters
Basically you will not be able to find our sites though search engines anymore.
Why are we doing this
We are rising in search ranks on many of the search indexes, while this is something to be joy at for most of the websites especially those who profit from ads streams.
But for us it’s something not so good, There are increasing numbers of scams selling dr█gs, selling insurance, car loans and some even advertise their SEO tools (what make them think that we will buy their tools if they spam on our page lol)
It might be inconvenient for a lot of readers who check our site from search engines frequently, my self included. But it comes with the benefits of more privacy, less risk of getting DDOSed by compactor translation groups.
Some other changes that might come
As we know, our sites practice speech rights, everyone is welcome to share their views. That including reading the awful comments of dropping the translation and criticisms. (but as long as you don’t post the same message multiple time under the same chapters)
