    Obelisk ze Tormentor
    Letís seeÖ I think what counts as otaku-baits for me are:
    • Harem story or story that has a great deal of harem elements in it. Iím okay with love triangle or mere harem vibe (eg. Hataraku Maou-sama, Last Exile, etc), but not stories that has harem as the secondary main-plot (eg. Unbreakable Machine-Doll, Index, Asterisk, Rakudai, and countless others). Stories where the main female character(s) easily fall for the male MC for no strong reason or development (regardless of numbers) is also included in this category.
    • Stories that use pervy/erotic/sexual-elements as part of its plot-device. For example, the main guy has to kiss/molest/*insert other sexual deeds here* in order for him or his partner to get power-boost. (eg. Highscool DxD, Testament, and many others).
    • Female character designs with unnecessary (and often bordering on brainless) revealing clothes or clothes that unnaturally accentuate their bodies like very tight leather-like suits or see-through clothes or something alike (eg, Dragonar Academy, and many others). Female characters with over-the-top sexual trait (eg. unnecessary big bouncy boobs) also included in this.
    • OP male MCs that trample his opponents from the beginning to almost end. Usually, itís either the male MC is OP as hell, or the setting is conveniently setting the male MC as the top by default considering their skill (eg. No Game No Life, Mahouka, etc)
    • Unnecessary fanservice. For example, the writer makes certain female characters naked or in sexually awkward situations for no strong reasons when he can easily write a scenario where those girls donít have to be that way (eg. Holoís nudity in S&W, many scenes from DxD, etc)
    • Stories with a ďchosen oneĒ MC in which he previously had a normal standard highschool or commoner's life before "destiny" comes for him.
    • Stories that uses highschool setting & highschool MC for no strong reason (eg. in recent episode of Testament, a fight with a god happened on schoolgrounds. DxD franchise is also guilty of this in some events in its story).
    • Stories that are too reliant or too indulgent on their own gimmicks or technobabble or magicbabble rather than focusing on making a good narrative or good character development or both.

    Those are from the top of my head. Maybe Iíll come up with more.

    *note that my examples above come from animes, and not necessarily LNs as I just want to illustrate my point using what I remember right now*

    Me too. As for transhumanism, well, have you ever thought about the idea that men might actually turn into gods are we gain better mastery over the world around us? In a world like Mahouka, where magic exists, that might be even more true and will probably happen a lot faster.

    As men become more and more powerful, their priorities and how they perceive the world also begins to change. A man with power is incomparable to a man without. Power changes one's very nature. Can you imagine this happening in a larger and unprecedented scale? I feel like this is one possible direction the Mahoukaverse might take. I mean look at Tatsuya and Miyuki? I have a feeling they might the first of a new class of people. They absurd degree of power is part of the what warped their mentality into the way it is now. (All of this fits with the series' themes on power and "irregularity".)

    A further look into the Perry Rhodan series might also help us predict future developments and discern the author's intentions. ^_^

    There's really only one that I can:

    Your circumstances don't matter. Regardless of what you were born into, and how the world tries to conspire against you---all that matters is what you do with what you have, and how you react to the circumstances set against you. Who cares if people look down on you, and think you're useless--face them all with courage and determination.

    Who knows? YOU might be the one to change or set the world aflame. The power is in YOUR hands.

    Not really...I'm kinda still banking on seeing more Xiang Yu parallels, but right now, nothing seems to be popping up. I did however see something...strange. And kinda funny.

    Remmeber Cardinal George? I just found out the first two kanji of his name were the same kanji used in the Japanese name of Lakshimi, Vishnu's wife.

    Now this is either just a big coincidence (probably is) or it could mean that Masaki is indeed the character based on Vishnu, and just as Parvati was turned into an imouto in Miyuki, Lakshimi was gender-flipped to become Vishnu's best bro rather than his wife.

    So MasakiXGeorge OTP.

    (Please, don't quote me on this. I'm still not sure XD)

    I'm glad you liked it. ^_^

    Here's my blog. ^_^Word in advance, the Shiva list is a little outdated, since I found about 20 more similarities and parallels between Tatsuya and Shiva, and about 10-15 more between Miyuki and Shakti(Parvati).
