A Pubescent Low-Life Series

(Also known as the Seishun Buta Yarou Series)

Synopsis

‘Adolescence Syndrome’, rumours of occult-ish happenings, an urban legend of the likes of ‘being able to read minds’, ‘seeing people’s futures’, or ‘swapping bodies with someone’.

However, Azusagawa Sakuta, a second year at Minegahara High School, knows that these mysterious occurrences really exist, because something that had happened meant he could not deny it.

And then, on the final day of Golden Week in May, at the library, Sakuta met a wild bunny girl.

  1. Did you already read it? if yes can you tell me what’s happened at the end of this volume? I read the manga but the conclusion chapter seems still far away.

    well, i respect your choice if u choose not to

    • If the novel gets licensed, then I will probably be dropping this, yes. My main goal (other than entertaining myself) is for people in the West to enjoy it, if they can do so legally, then all the better.

    Hello! i thank you for the work youre giving us!

    I made an Epub version of Volume 2, its not a perfect epub and its only made by scratch. Seeing that its still not up, would you like me to give you the file and leave some tweakings to you to lessen your work load?

    Like

    • It takes like two minutes for me to generate the epub from my work files, it’d be more effort for me to adapt one. The only reason the epub isn’t up is because my editor hasn’t finished going through the volume.

    Hello there. Thanks A LOT for translating this novels, you cannot imagine how much I appreciate what you’re doing here. Want to say that I prefer to read it in EPUB or PDF, but I see you haven’t uploads volume 2, 3 and 4 in those formats, so if you need help with that, I’d be glad on helping.

  21. YamamotoLatin says:

    Also, there is no volume 4 apparently.

    Like

    • The epubs and such aren’t slow because I’m having trouble making them, the volumes need editing first. As to volume 4, that’s because I’m still working on chapter 1, I just put the links up ahead of time.

        1. Do you intend to translate past volume 4?

        2. Thank you so much, I know you hear this a lot, but I seriously need to thank you.
        This has been one of my favorite LNs, and as I do not speak japanese, I rely on translated versions to enjoy these stories. I don’t wanna make this super long and boring, so I’ll make it short.

        Thank you so much for spending your valuable time on this, and allowing others to enjoy this as you (hopefully) are. Some might take it for granted, and that is a shame.

        Happy New Years, and I look forward to reading more of your translations in 2019.

    • Volume 4 has only just actually begun, but the links are there to save time when posting, best to check the post category for Low-Life on the main page first, that should tell you whether I’ve actually posted and the links are broken or if it’s not done yet.

    Like

    • I’ll keep translating until one of three things happen:
      – The novel annoys me enough that I don’t want to continue it.
      – The novel gets licensed or I’m given a DMCA/takedown notice
      – I stop fan translation all together

      If any of those three happen I’ll make a release post. Unfortunately nowadays I don’t exactly have a glut of free time, and the work which actually earns me a wage has to take precedence. So take heart that I’ve not and probably won’t abandon the series, but don’t hold your breath for stupid fast releases anymore.

    Hi quick question, i started to watch the anime and I’m so into it. I did research and read the manga, however in the manga its ends with mai and sakuta holding hands. Whereas the anime went much further. So my question is, the light novel and manga are two different things? Can you please help? Thank you.
