Note: Volume 4’s title is “Michibiki Michibikareshi Monotachi” which literally means “those who guide, those who are guided”. However, the title is also a reference to Dragon Quest 4.
DQ4’s Japanese title is “Michibikareshi Monotachi” but when it got released in the west, the title was localized to “Chapters of the Chosen”.
For this volume of Grimgar, we’ve decided that it was more important to keep the DQ reference intact than translate the title literally. Luckily, “Chapters of the Chosen and Choosers” retains its significance to the plot in a similar way to the literal translation, making it work out better than anyone could have dared to hope!
