Sabaku no Harem Chapter 18


And with this, we are caught up on the main story… until tomorrow when I get the next chapter. Again, we also have two side stories to complete, which we’ll get to after we catch up with “Kanojo ni Naru Hi”.

This chapter plays out like one of those Victorian romance movies my mom likes. There’s so much pointless jibber-jabber going on here as people try to figure their social position. I’m more interested in what will be done to resolve the cliffhanger at the end. Anyhow, onto the release!

Readership of this series fell off a cliff. Most readers (~75%) quit the series after it switched to Lala. I think the 4-month mangaka hiatus killed the flow of the story and dampened interest in the scanlation. Are you all still interested in this series, or would you like us to move onto something else? I’m neutral on this series. I like the story and the characters, but I don’t like working on endless shoujo and I’m tweaked that the romance keeps getting reset every arc. We’ve establish that Prince Kallum wants to marry Mishe, so get on with it and see how things go after the marriage. I’m also kinda peeved that so much content comes out that it’s like we can only do Sabaku. Haha! I’m just whining because I hate working on one thing.Meh…

  1. Thanks for all your hard work! πŸ˜€

    Definitely still interested in the series (that cliffhanger! D: ), but I also kinda feel neutral about it like you do. The author sticks to the status quo too much, I think. >__<

  2. I recently found this story and I quite like it. πŸ™‚
    Thank you for the scanlations. I really appreciate your hard work.
    I also feel that it is getting a bit repetitive with their romance. I’m more interested in the backstory between King Aleph and Mishe. Hope they explain it more in the future chapters. ^^
    anyhoo, thank you again!

  3. Hi! Thanks for scanslating the series. I agree that the hiatus took a toll on reader interest but now that the manga is back on a regular schedule i think it will pick up again (especially after your back to back releases of Chapter 17 and 18 πŸ˜‰ )

    I love the series despite the slow-ish development between Kallum and Mishe so I personally hope you continue with the series. [I am also just waiting for more interactions with Aleph xD]

  4. Thank you for Translating the Sabaku no Harem chapters !!!!πŸ’›I really appreciate it. You all are amazing as a groupπŸ’›keep up the good work !!!! πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€ !! πŸ’›πŸ’›

  5. I think this is an amazing series I recently just got back into reading this after seeing the update on Instagram by other Shoujo Manga enthuses for this particular manga!
    Thank you for your hard work to restore back this manga!

  6. I love this series and really appreciate the effort you put into the scallion of this manga- the quality is always great and the translations flow well and are imbued with humour. I understand people’s issues with the mangaka’s resetting the romance all the time- there was so much potential for the Aleph arc and tbh I was really looking forward to it but the story fell a bit flat. Regardless, I really like that the narrator has a good head on her shoulders; she doesn’t get overtly possessive nor malicious if she feels jealousy, she’s hardworking, courageous and, most importantly, despite the fact that she was violated and treated in such a way that lesser characters would have broken down, she continues to push forward and strive for a future, attempting to build a sense of self worth for herself. And I think that’s pretty important, and something you don’t ever really see in should nowadays. And that’s why I love this series and why I’m eternally grateful for the effort you have made producing these scanlations. So thank you so much for all the work you do πŸ™‚

  8. I like reading this manga series. Light, fun and entertaining. Please keep continue releasing this series. Thank you so much for your hardworks until now. Please keep up the great works!!!

  9. I love this series! I will admit that I just got back to it today, but I have already reread the series (so far) multiple times. Maybe people haven’t realized it’s begun being updated again (like me…). In my case, I would be devestated if this series was dropped. Thank you for all your hard work.

  10. thank you so much for translating and releasing this. I didnt even realised it was switched to lala until i read your comments. i still enjoy this series very much and the potential arcs (being accepted by the royalties and the higher ups (+ cor/mishe/kallum love triangle), then eventually face off with their past- aleph (/different country challenges), and perhaps she will shine even more with aleph possibly creating a new love triangle (aleph/mishe/kall). i can’t wait!! ❀ please please don't drop it. it is such an underrated manga, but those who stumble upon it adore it to bits!

  11. I really like reading this series! Pls continue updating Sabaku no Harem, it’s an interesting manga series and I seem to end up reading some of the chapters over and over because I couldn’t wait for the new chapter to be updated. I really want to know what will happen between Prince Kallum and Mishe in the end because Ms. Corelle seems to be aiming to be his legal wife too, saing she’ll become the wife. All I can do is hope you can update more chapters, I’ll be looking forward for more!

    1. Also thank you for your hard work! When will be the next update? I just really like this series, this chapter left me wondering what Prince Kallum will say and the queen.

  12. Hi there~ thanks for the scans, remember that your work is always greatly received by us readers, even though only a small part comes to thank!! I’d still be interested in seeing how the manga is gonna go, but the romance is getting a bit too slow! Few things have changed up until now..but i still hope we’ll get what we want!!

  13. Thank you so much for your great work!
    I really love the characters and their background stories so, even though the manga might feel a bit slow-paced, I hope to be able to read more of it. And Prince Kallum is so handsome! πŸ˜‰

  14. Hi!
    Leaving my two cents~ So… I’ll be honest, I’m not particularly excited about this series. I like Mishe as a main character, but I find the romance resetting every arc sort of frustrating. It’s starting to feel like the mangaka is trying to hit as many of the tropes as she can… (we DID have a hot springs episode, essentially…) I’m still curious about the Aleph/Mishe story, though, and I definitely want to see more of it. I also like the humor of the manga a lot and your translation is, as always, fantastic.

    All in all, I would miss the series, but I don’t love it. I’ll keep enjoying it if you keep translating!

  15. Hi there, Thanks for all your hard work! I really hope to see what happens between Mishe and Aleph – I mean, there’s bound to be some juicy arc, right? *smirks But I also get it if you want to move on to something else, but hopefully you’ll be able to stick with it a little longer!

  16. I’ve enjoyed this manga! Please continue, I’m curious about the development of their relation ship and how she will win over the snippy mother in law queen.

  17. Although there is so much wishy-washy romance on it, I’m enjoying it! I’m surprised at myself, but it’s the truth. Thanks for your hard work! (^-^)/

  18. I love this manga!
    Thank you for all your hard work.
    May I know when will you release the next chapter please?

  19. Definitely still interested! I agree that the romance seems to keep getting reset. (This manga’s definitely not the greatest shoujo ever.) But I’m a sucker for Arabian manga AND historical harems, so I love this series. (plus, it’s pretty funny!)

  20. Thank you for your hard work and please continue to work on this manga. I love the two main characters’ personalities so much. Mishe is a strong, smart and kind girl and Prince Kallum never pushes her to be something that she wasn’t. I also truly love how Prince Kallum respectes and appreciates women. Actually, I love everything about him.

    About the speed of their relationship, I don’t mind that their relationship is not going any faster because I understand that being married when Mishe is nothing yet won’t help Prince Kallum. I want to see her prove herself so that all people know she is worthy of the title as his real wife first and I’m pretty sure she feels the same. Beside, their relationship is not as slow as Yona and Hak’s relationship (Yona of the Dawn). They didn’t kiss until chapter 137 and that still wasn’t a real kiss.

  21. Thank you for all your hard work! I’d appreciate it if you continued doing the scanlations as well ^_^
