Forkke well, I'll be honest the tl'er has been known to just disappear a lot, without warning in the past on GT before the duel hosting ...
but he was getting better at leaving messages about exams and stuff
I'd say it's most prob due to Xmas and new year etc as a good few novels have had less than normal release rates
this is why I, in the end, tl'd this novel myself as I'm now at chapter #2638 Displaying their wisdom and bravery that was released on the 29th Dec as a raw ( I'm just doing my proofreading and re-editing of stuff )
I'm hoping like others and yourself that next year the release rate will be a lot better, as it takes so long to do some bit's as even over the improvements I've done over the lmntl releases, it's still not as good as the ones here
