1. What volumes did the anime adapt up to?
Season 1 adapts volumes 1-6 while heavily omitting a lot of details, interactions, and important scenes. Volume 6.5, bonus track excluded, is condensed in episode 13. Presumably season 2 will adapt volumes 7-9.

2. Where are volumes 1-5?
NanoDesu has the first four.

3. Are your translations any good? Why does it read so unnatural sometimes?
Better than MTL, at least. Getting around to editing all the older volumes again. One day. You’ll have to deal with what I churned out until then.

4. Where are the PDFs?
I haven’t made any official ones. You’ll have to dig around for the PDFs made by other readers.

5. Where’s volume/chapter/afterword x?
I’ll get around to them. Having a 9-6 job means you don’t have much time on the weekdays.

6. How do I get started?
Volume 7 picks up right after season 1. Technically 6.5 does, but that’s not translated yet. See below.

7. Current plans?
Who knows.

  1. hi there mr. / ms. translator..
    just stopping by to say thanks for your hard work and dedication on translating this series,, i really really like this series a lot.
    your work is really a great help to some of us who cannot avail these on our own locations.. so i really wish and hope you continue to
    keep on translating
    i hope that you will have good health and more happy days to come 😀

  2. I just want to say thanks for picking up this series! I really respect people who understands the witty and general slice and life comedy prospects of fictional people. Thanks again !

  3. Thanks for the hard work mister translator. I downloaded the baka tsuki app to dl the novel to read it offline but only got 7 to 9 so and i want to read it from rhe start.Anyone got some a pdf or epub copy of each volume please share. Thanks.

  4. Is Volume 10.5 afterword going to be translated? Can someone post the link of the pdfs of each volume? Thanks in advance.

  5. Hey Exorcism, did you redo the site design? If so, I take it that not all of the hyperlinks are up and running yet? It’s a little unfortunate that we can’t access the volumes in the current moment (But i totally understand). Just curious.

  6. I want to say that I’m very thankful for your work. Btw, why don’t u use pdf? Can you recommend any good epub app readers? I find it quite uneasy to read in epub rather than pdf.

    • I think he took them down to retranslate them. The version is still up on Baka-Tsuki I believe.

  7. Yahallo!!! re-reading from 1 to 10…..(had just read from 7 onwards b4)…….
    so 6.5 illustrations look sweet…..any progress on 6.5 normal chapters??…..and also why is it named 6.5 if it happens after 9 ??? what’s the difference on regular and limited editions??

  8. with whom hikigaya will end up with ……………give me honest answer……………….

    i honestly want it should be yukino..but
    from what i think after reading the light novel even if hikigaya helps yukino to solve her problems there is less chance that he will end up with yukino………….i think the author will go with yui and hikigaya which i don’t want…

    it would be great also if no one ends with no one

    • HikixYuki is highly hinted….. but yeah at the pace they’re going….final line will be something like “I’ll be your friend” by yukinon….. its what i think… but having a real relationship would make me extremely happy…

  9. To whoever took the time and dedication to translate the novel I would like to thank you so very much. I really love the series and with your hard work can continue to read on one of my favorite so thank you very much. Would love to show gratitude with some on translation or maybe donation but cant as still a student who still does not know japanese . So I would like to thank you again for your time and work ^^

  10. If I’m allowed, to anyone who wants them, here’s some PDF’s of Oregairu from volumes 5-10.5 w/c I made (Not that fancy looking though).

    The irony is that I haven’t finished watching Season 1 of the anime & haven’t started reading the LN’s yet. I just knew that it’s a series I would really like & will get around it so I made them for myself but might as well share it to those who may want it.

  11. Are you a wizard? You must have had inside knowledge on this. This series got licensed just today, and just yesterday you made pdf’s for this. I am not sure if you plan to take them down later on, but I do want to thank you so much for all your hard work you have done. How do you plan on finishing volume 11 if it’s licensed?

  12. Okay yenpress finally DID it. Imean they licensed the series >.< Are you gonna continue translating? Just asking….No need to take a quick decision though

  13. Are kyakka going to continue translating the LN despite the licensing of Oregairu LN and Manga ?

  14. i don’t know if you decide to stop TL this LN but at the very least I’m hoping to read the volume 6.5, well I’ll just say my thanks for letting me read 5-10.5, Thank you 🙂

  15. Thank you for your hard work, please continue the translating process, because this is my first time reading a light novel and before i know it, i become addicted to it. Please take your time and do your best, because i believe there’s a lot of people who waiting and dying to know who will end up with our lucky twisted 8man!!

  16. Copied from my previous comments elsewhere in the site, but are there any plans to finish vol 11? I’m aware that it has already been translated by FatFluffyFish, but his translations are really dull and painful to read, that it became a chore instead of something to read out of enjoyment. The translations from 1-6, 7-10 are damn amazing on this site are damn amazing. Although I’m aware that the translations for all said novels are done by different people. That being said, any translator that isn’t FatFluffyFish is great.
