    1. To me this is honestly a bit better than Reincarnator; Reincarnator feels stifling these days and KotB has a more electric feel to it, though that might be because it’s still in the beginning.

      Either way I like the beginning of this better than Reincarnator and I like how the mechanics of the KotB world are and I like it a lot more than the runes system in Reincarnator.

    1. Currently, we have no plans on increasing our regular chapters~ We may release ninja chapters like today but rest will most likely be from our sponsors. But, thank you for your interest in our novel 😀

  1. Your translation quality is amazing! Also the story is also really good. Thank you so much! I hope you won’t drop this.

  2. I think the synopsis may have a mistake… “He closed his eyes as he felt his heart stop breathing.” Pretty sure it’s supposed to be “Beating”?

  3. Could a glossary be made soon? I feel like we are at a pivotal point in the story and that it is going to be easier to forget things that previously happened that affect the story.

    For Example: I didn’t know who Kang Baeksoo was until I re-read the series & seeing as he [Spoilers] with Muyoung and others, he would probably be important later on but with his weak presence it is easy to forget he exists.

  4. I like how you guys really get shit done. Asura just finished the last time I was on and now a week or 2 later you’re 4 chapters ahead. I know most translators never translate as fast and as competently as you guys do. Thanks a ton for this.

  5. Reading Reincarnator since I’ve caught up all the way with King of the Battlefield. Definitely like King of the Battlefield waaaay more. I find the most ironic thing is that despite Muyoung not being given a reason to have come back to the beginning, unlike Hansoon in Reincarnator, I’m finding KotB a lot more understandable than Reincarnator. I.e. the reasons why the MC’s remember important information that helps them advance, Muyoung’s reason is waaaaaaay cooler and makes more sense.

  6. ¡Hi! Thanks for your hard work, I love this novel <3, so….. I'm interested in translating this novel in Spanish, so, no problem if I use your translation? :p

  7. Thanks for the translation … I made an epub out of this on my blog and would like to know if i could post it here . Linked your site on the post under translators for the novel.

  8. How old the protaganist again after he reincarnates. I thought he would be the age of a university student but people are calling him “mister”, “old man”, etc.

    so yeh, could anyone clarify his age, thanks.

    1. I believe he is in his 20’s because in chapter 2 it says how Muyoung was a university student… Suzy might call him mister because of their age difference though. And also some people in Korea call men, mister (ajusshi) when they finish their military service or when they just look old.. Thanks for reading!

  9. When will the new chapter be released. I am all caught up till chapter 87. I would like to know when new chapters are released and when they are translated and posted on this site. Btw ty very much for translating.

  10. You are tearing me apart, Lisa!

    “I’ve got a bad case of KotB withdrawl, doc.”

    “I would gladly write you a prescription, but I’m sorry to say our supply of KotB chapters is completely empty.

    “Without proper treatment, I’m afraid your condition will only become more severe as time passes.”


    KOTB! Come back! DADDY NEEDS YOU!!

    1. “Psst. Buddy.”

      You turn to see a shady looking man, ragged in appearance, with filthy hair and even filthier looking eyes.

      “Word on the street is there’ll be a chapter soon. You didn’t hear this from me.”

      The man quickly walks away, disappearing into an alleyway before you even realize the implications of what he said.

        1. Hi translator,
          cant u give this novel to one of translator in this website? U know, its not permament one, just temporary, until u can do it regulary again, they dont need to translate it 2 chapters a week, 1 chapter a week is enough, hell even 1 chapter in 2 weeks is enough, cause it has been almost 3 months and u only posted 4 chapters,
          Sorry if Im being rude..

  11. Is there a way I can help get the chapters out quickly? I can be a great editor, or donate? It’s hard to bear waiting at such intervals for a fiction as fulfilling as “The King Of The Battlefield”

    1. I am hoping to increase my translation speed once I complete my school (end of April) but I have to see since I will be looking for a job and also be preparing for my first designation exam in July. Thanks for enjoying!
