As promised, better let than never, is this week’s Translation Tuesday. For this week, it is the next chapter of the Ring of Judgment pre-story manga for Zero no Kiseki. After that, there are two more chapters- one that has already been translated and just needs another edit, from Eidenyaku, then the special epilogue chapter that was released when the comic was compiled into a single book.
These come from the scanslation work that I did with Eidenyaku, and still maintain Shram’s translations- despite some re-edits and tweaks here and there to make the English flow a little better in the text. The fonts are also much more clear and readable, in my opinion. Eventually, as I finish these, we will come across the epilogue chapter that was added to the book release of the manga, as well as a pair of bonus pages that were also released then- but not until we’re finished with it.
Something else to note is that this manga does take place after SC. While it hasn’t come across much of the spoilers for SC, the fourth chapter absolutely will. So if you’re following this, you may want to finish the game before I get to that particular chapter.
These scans came from the original run in Dengeki Maoh, so you will see that the paper looks off in the images. The quality of the paper in the magazine was, as usual, lower than the paper that was used in the published book later. You will see this difference when the epilogue is finally released.
If you haven’t read the previous chapters, you can find them here:

Though it may be straight forward for most, please remember that this is a Japanese manga and it hasn’t been flipped. As a result, remember to read from right to left!
