Since my translation collection seems to be getting bigger (even though it's really not much), I thought it would be nice to collate all of them somewhere in case someone comes searching for them and does not want to go through the all the communities to find them. Unless I label them otherwise, the file will include the whole book. All the files are in pdf format.

Disclaimer: All these are translated from the official Chinese translations of the books, I cannot read Japanese. Please note that some meaning might be lost because these are effectively 2nd level translations from the original Japanese text.

Helpdesk: If you are having issues with any of the files, please email me at mittenslj220@gmail.com

Hataraku Maou-sama Novels

1. When will you be done with the translations of Hatamaou Vol X?

I can't answer your question because I don't know the answer either. Please refer to the translation progress to make your own estimate.

2. Where can I download the Hatamaou volumes?
If you like puzzles, there is a sentence below that says 'For those who missed the previous uploaded volumes, please solve the puzzle in the file below.' Of course if you missed out that sentence, I can't help you if you're blind.
If you hate puzzles with a passion, there are various sites which have uploaded my translations without my permission, google is your best friend. There is only one place which has uploaded the translations with my approval, refer to below.

3. I really want to meet other Hatamaou fans! Where can I go?
Join this Discord group: https://discord.gg/0116EF7s44BB79oiu  Please register an account and also read the Rules and FAQs before asking the admins/moderators to add you as a member. In addition, as a member you would also be able to access all the PDFs and ePUBs of the Hatamaou translations which I have uploaded so far. Please do not upload them onto other sites.

4. Will you be willing to translate other series on request?
No, I am already busy enough with just Hatamaou. Even if I am somehow done with Hatamaou, I already have a list of series I want to do, so don't ask me about this.

For those who missed the previous uploaded volumes, please solve the puzzle in the file below.

Progress of Volume currently being translated
Volume 12: 100% (Pending beta-reading 50% done)
Volume 13: 4.2%

The new puzzle to the secret location has been uploaded on the first post on my livejournal. It is recommended to print it out and do it.
The link to the secret location will be removed for the time being until Moko-chan comes up with a new puzzle for it because some of you found it too easy and wanted a challenge. I will update again when the secrel location is active again.

Bad News 1
So, issues have come up with Moko-chan's secret location, so she had to delete the whole folder and reupload it, which caused the link of the folder to change. So for those people who had bookmarked the secret location before, you have to solve the puzzle again to get the new link.

Bad News 2
And because Moko-chan had too much caffine and had other issues known as overwork, tiredness etc, she suddenly felt very evil and changed the placement of the link in her livejournal, so you guys have to search for it again. The clue is sill valid though.

I have no control over whatever happens in the secret location and Moko-chan's livejournal, so sorry for the inconvenience >_<

Vol 0 has been uploaded on the first post. The password is there as well. I tested the password myself to check that it works, so if you can't open the file, either something is wrong with your software or you have the wrong password. It's in a password protected zip file now.

As usual, it will be up for one week before it will be removed.

Enjoy ^_^

Vol 5.5 has been uploaded ^_^ I appreciate everyone's patience in this.

In addition, there are also 2 more short stories added.
The Demon King, Gets Lucky
The Demon King, Starts Training in Order to Lie

Like what I mentioned before, these are short stories, so they would not be removed until I actually move them into a main volume (like how Thirty Life appears in Vol 14)

Three Hatamaou short stories have been uploaded onto the sticky post. These stories, like Vol 5.5, have been translated by the Chinese fans and they have allowed Moko-chan and I to translate them into English, all of them have been duly credited.

The three stories are
The Demon King, gets condemned
The Demon King, seriously tries to gain victory
The Demons and Hero and High School Girl – Two billion dream

The first two are really short while Two Billion Dream is longer. I actually did 2 billion dream before but Moko-chan and I somehow lost the file haha.

Anyway, since these are short stories, we won't be removing them and there are no passwords set on them.

As for Vol 5.5, I'm still beta reading it because it's a whooping 142 pages (so much for being a short story *sweat*)

Hope all of you enjoy reading this while waiting for Vol 5.5 and Vol 0 ^_^
The Chinese fans started translating parts of Vol 15, so Moko-chan has also started translating those parts related to Lucifer and the angels on her livejournal.

Fans interested in Vol 15 are welcome to check them out at http://mokochan-314.livejournal.com/

l3v1s had started a Telegram group at telegram.me/hatamaou

icephantom22 also started a Discord group with the following invite link


Anyone else who wants to interact with other fans other than in this livejournal can consider going there to interact with other fans to discuss the novel, the series in general and make new friends.

So recently I have been getting a lot of messages and comments asking about various issues (password, secret location etc), and it comes with its own set of problems.

1) People messaging me with questions and me unable to answer them back because they have privacy options turned on and I can't always post a new entry to answer them because some things can't be discussed in the open or it would spoil the fun for others

2) Comments being spammed with requests for help when I rather have the comments being used more for discussion about the series and interacting with other fans of Hata-maou

3) My LJ inbox being spammed with requests for help in general, which is tiring to go through, especially since some people tend to post a few times at once when they don't get an immediate reply

Anyway, to try to mitigate this issue a bit, I have set up a helpdesk with the following email.


People who have problems with the password (unable to figure out the password etc) and secret location (where's the clue, I don't know where the link is etc), please just email me at the above address so we don't clutter up the comments with these and focus more on series discussion and interaction.

Thank you for your understanding.
