    • Yep, as an anonymous guest said, he has already used up his 3 Yama’s invitations. The 1st one was during the continental tournament, against that teacher that tried to kill him (the nightmare dude, can’t remember his name). The 2nd and 3rd needles were used when Tang San and Xiao Wu were escaping from the spirit hall’s spirit masters, in Star Dou Great Forest (just before Xiao Wu sacrifices herself to save Tang San).

      Currently, he doesn’t have any more Yama’s Invitation.

  1. He broke the Titan Ape’s spirit ring… Actually, the fact that he shattered any of his rings bothers me. Is he going to lose those rings forever?!

    “What a Tang San,”
    -Is there a some sort of translation/wording error, because this doesn’t sound proper English for me…

    “..he actually didn’t give up even now, actually using the Clear Sky School’s useless Disorder Splitting Wind Hammer Method.”

  5. I just noticed… did the author mix up the spirit rings? Or rather, I am very confused by the paragraph detailing why the first spirit Ring of the Clear Sky Hammer is better than the final three of Blue Silver Grass. After all the final three are: the one gifted by the Seagod (presumably very high quality), the one from the orca (a formidable 100 000 year spirit beast, comparable to the Python and the Ape) and the one from the python (which has been stated as being even more powerful than the Ape). So… why the talk about the three ants in this paragraph? And why stating that the spirit ring is somehow more powerful? (After all, much of the difference was explained as the Clear Sky Hammer being the spirit this techinque was invented for)

    • I think the author means the first ring of the clear sky hammer is better for the great sumeru hammer technique; it’s a really forceful technique, so the hundred thousand year spirit ring from a spirit beast with incredible physical strength and raw power, is better for it than the last three on his blue silver emperor spirit

      • But doesn’t the orca also fit that description? After all it was statet that while the sharks were unmatched in regard to speed, the orcas were greatly superior in raw strengh. (And considering the abilities Tang San got from the orca that seems to be accurate…)

        Like

        • I think it has to do with the fact that spirit ring detonation is a technique made for the Clear Sky Hammer, so it synergizes better. When he was detonating his Blue Silver Emperor rings, he was using a Clear Sky Hammer technique, without the Clear Sky Hammer.

          I believe earlier in the novel that the Titan Ape had been described as being able to contend with hundred thousand year beasts when it was just a ten thousand year beast. I think that is why his attack is so much stronger

  6. Thanks again Bagelson.

    Random estimation… The combined word count for all Harry Potter novels is just over 1.08 million words. Once fully translated, the word count for DD will be approximately 1.6 million words. O_O

  8. I followed you for years and while your translations are good i cant help but notice you lost a lot of followers due ro slow translations.

    I actually stopped coming here myself when i realized it would take you a year to finish the last 80 chapters (at 1 or maybe 2 a weekend).

    Started on d2 already. But just wanted to say thanks for getting me hooked into the series and thanks for the translations up until wuxia started doing it.

    • I’ve personnally read that website’s translations and they’re really to bad for me to enjoy anything. I think Bagelson’s done an incredible work until now and he deserves all our support. If some consider these translations as they consider junk food, then they’re not worth the notice. Personnally, I have decided to reread the whole DD translation from the beginning: it’s a way to wait until new chapters are out. And just like you, I read DD2 and DD3 (well… I’ll read DD2 again from now on, as wuxiaworld has finally reached the level where Cookiepasta had dropped it).

      • I agree with Anonymous… The quality of your translations are really good. But dedication is also important.. If you really want to keep your followers, be more dedicated to your projects. It may be a hobby but at the least, hobbyists do it on a regular basis while yours seem to be sporadic or who knows how often.. You also need to be honest to yourself and to your followers. You need to do or follow through with your words/promises.. You even broke your promised once-a-week translation.. Keeping one’s word is important to most people..

        Anyways, thank you for translating hundreds of chapters. Thank you for introducing this nice novel to me. Thanks for the effort.. The novel was nice and your translations were great..

        Now, can someone post the link of that poorly translated version of this novel? I no longer mind the low quality translation. I just want to finish this one and start reading DD2. Thanks!

Last time Zilvane answered any question (or anyone from the website) was more than a month ago. Their last release was something like a month ago too… Their website’s having the fate it deserves: it’s dying. The guys didn’t understand that you can’t create a community and gather support if the only thing you do is try to steal from others! They defended themselves by saying it wasn’t forbidden… but they forgot that if they want to be respected, they first need to respect the others.

  10. I stopped reading this a while ago after deciding of spoiling myself the plot because I couldn’t bear tge wait, and to be fair I’ve never been happier of doubt it, while I’d like to remind that baegelson doesn’t owe anyone anything, not even a schedule or a notce, as he’s doing this for free and his own enjoyment, I would also like to point out that the readers don’t owe him anything either as he’s not doing this as a favor or something but because he likes it, so although I personally believe that the other site translation (i tried it to back then) has poor quality comparable if not worse than mtl, and that their diffamatory behaviour in order to adverts themselves was of poor taste and counterproductive, it is a reader right to choose them over baegelson, also keeping in mind that he doesn’t own the story and anyone willing should be able to translate it. And as a last question, why are you so sensitive for him? Why do you keep “protecting” him from “accuses and offenses” that are neither accuse nor offensive?(not referring to the other site accident, that particular one was pretty disgusting) Are you afraid he would quit translating? In that case you should remember that he doesn’t translate for your enjoyment but his. If there are any other reasons please explain them to me, because I’m extremely curios and a little confused.

    • I personnally defend him out of respect for his work. You can say whatever you want about it but while he translates mainly for himself, absolutely nothing forces him to publish his translations online. and we’re all benefitting from these.

      Like you said, anyone is free to choose and anyone can read their novels in whitchever website they wish. However, the people coming from that website forgot one thing: ethic! Instead of picking a novel that had been dropped by another team, they chose to pick a novel translated by one guy and tried to harass him to make him abandon his translation! They even made death threats against him and the admin of that website admitted publicly that he had used various identities to flood here during these “incidents” you related. I personnally read part of their work on Douluo Dalu and it’s horrifying how it’s bad! These guys simply edited MTL! They weren’t even translating it!

      These guys didn’t have a single bit of respect for anyone and their main reason for poaching a doing whatever they did was simply: it isn’t forbidden so we can do it. The guys acted like scum so they attracted people like them, who left as soon as they came. I’m really happy to see their website on the point of dying miserably.

      • I absolutely agree with what you said, as I’ve pointed out they have been disgusting, and their website dying miserably it’s just a consequence of their own actions and poor quality (to be fair that what’s i hope will happen to qidian too altough very unlikely, and even qidian behaved better than them) but what was i asking about, and that’s why i specified it, was about the over the top reaction some people had against other readers who complained against the lack of communication, of course as i said again baegelson has no obligation whatsoever to ever comunicate with fans but i don’t see why people expressing their disappointment about it should be a problem or offensive in any way

          I think the whole problem is about how it’s said and not that people would like to have a bit more information.

            • If he begins with the “sorry guys no chapter this week”, he’ll admit that he failed and that there is a schedule, what isn’t the case: he’s simply used to release his chapters on a certain day. And the more he’ll communicate, the more people will want him to communicate even more. Don’t you understand that people are never satisfied?

                • Your point is that you assume there is a schedule, where nothing exists. And a 3 week hiatus might be something but it doesn’t mean he has to give us any explanation or whatever. It’s his business and he owes us nothing as much as we don’t owe him anything. If you’re not happy with that, feel free to go anywhere else and if you don’t minde it, then just stay. There’s just no use in complaining: you’re wasting your time and getting angry for absolutely nothing.

      I love Bagel’s work, and I still swing back here once a week to check for updates and read them as he gives them, but life in the Bagelson Sect checking every hour was killing my productivity. Completing the story elsewhere gave me the peace of mind to focus on other things in life.

  14. I get that Bagelson owes us nothing and all but its just simple courtesy to a fanbase to make a post saying ‘no release this week’ or ‘no releases for xx weeks’. If he can’t take the minute or two out of his day to do so then I don’t see our obligation to stick to his translation. Its the internet, theres freedom to so wtf you want (provided you’re not breaking the law in your country) I personally don’t get why some people are offended by other translators picking up bagelsons work – if he cared so much he would communicate more. You can’t expect everyone to be content to wait for releases based on the whim on some guy who doesn’t owe us anything. I’m not saying everyone should abandon Bagelson, I’m just saying that I personally would be happy if someone more reliable picked up the translation. That being said, I’m still a lazy sack of sh.t who’s feeding off the work of others so I guess I have no right to complain.

Just so that he could translate more often or on a “scheduled” basis like just even once a week (provided it REALLY once a week).. But since he rejected it because he probably doesn’t want any commitment and maybe because he just wants to maintain it as something enjoyable and not be pressured.

            Well, that’s all in the past now.. haha

            I just like to think he just wants to be “CAREFREE”.. LOL

  26. Here’s my 2 cents on this, if you’re impatient and just want more chapters go read machine translated or other translations, I personally went and read machine translated when we got to sea gods island and was done with it but I still enjoy bagelsons translations to fill in details I might have missed.
    Others who don’t want to sacrifice quality of bagel translations try starting DD2. The most they say about DD1 is how legendary Seven Shrek monsters were and how they won against spirit hall. (OMG how could you not tag spoilers in a novel with as many twists as this one the good guys might not win or something). Imo DD2 fleshes out the rules of the world a little better and mc has a goal right away instead of just training for training like Tang San does at the start. I would wait on DD3 though, I feel it has a more direct spoilers of dd2. Finally, Bagel has been slow translating for a while now but I’ve supported him in the past because of quality and consistency.Now however, month between chapters isn’t what I would call consistent.
