Volume 2 Chapter 3 and Afterword Complete! Volume 2 Finished!!!
Just barely in time for the New Year, Volume 2 of Fate/Apocrypha is now complete! Honestly, there were some problems that came up that made me think I wouldn’t be able to finish it within 2014, but luckily everything worked out. I hope everyone enjoyed the climax of revelations and shocks in Chapter 3. Now the two camps of the Great Holy Grail War that started this story have basically collapsed from what they were supposed to be, and the true “antagonist” (to Ruler, anyway) has finally revealed. And to think, there’s still at least three more volumes of this stuff left…
Anyway, now that Volume 2 is finished, I’m going to first be concentrating on going through and editing, and as I announced in the beginning, CanonRap will be taking over for Volume 3 over at his Quality Mistranslations site. He’s already posted the prologue as a preview here, so you can go check that out right away. As for me, after I finish the editing and get the PDF/ePub version of Volume 2 ready, I’m going straight to volume 4, though I won’t be posting any of the translation until Volume 3 is finished first. But before I say goodbye for a while, I’ll also be translating something extra: Apocrypha Material, a short document containing sketches and comments on the characters by the story creators. It won’t really contain anything spoilerish if you’ve read up to at least volume 2, except for a short preview page of Volume 5 (which is coming out this December 31st), which I’ll leave up to your discretion to read or not. Expect ready sometime soon.
In any case, that’s it from me for now. I wish a belated Merry Christmas to all you readers who celebrate the holiday, and I hope you’ll all have a Happy New Year as well.
