Of course I remember. It's 占星術殺人事件 right? I'm looking for the English version of that book in my local foreign book bookstore(it's still exponentially faster for me to read books in English ), but I don't have any luck finding the book yet. I might have to specially order the book or order it online XD.
What I meant with Watson is the useless character whose only use is contrast the "Holmes" character actually, and early on Ogasawara seems to fit that archetype perfectly , which is also why I like Goura more(he's sharper than most Watson which make him doesn't look that dumb compared to the usual Watson ). I mean, I understand the need for such character as the reader's representative(asking the "Holmes" the why question), but sometimes those "Watson" character seems unbelievably useless that it irrates me sometimes
Thanks for the opinion on SM series. I know which book to buy first then along with next volume of Q series, vol 4 of magdala, and first volume of QED (I usually only buy one book first for a series, just to familiarize myself with the author's writing style)
そして二人だけになった! is amazing. It's even more amazing if you have read And there were none, because you'll be led from the real answer even further
I've only read Q series up to vol 4. Been too occupied with certification exam and didn't have time to order more the continuation yet orz(I've found what to order next though so soon I'll place that order to kino ). From what I read though, the series s very closed to Biblia tone wise(no murder, lots of 豆知識). Biblia has the edge in heroine(I like Shioriko more than the lively Riko :heh), but Q has the edge in 豆知識(arguable, biblia is better if you're interested in old books, but generally, Q series has the more general 豆知識). In the "Watson" character department though, I like Goura much more than Yuuto. Yuuto seems a little too "Watson"-ish, while Goura, even if he's set as book dumb, was actually pretty sharp which is pretty refreshing for a "Watson"(not to mention his assertiveness, especially in regards to his relationship with Shioriko). One thing that detract me a little from Q series is, I think the author should have start the series with shorter case. 1 volume long case is still fine, but 2 volume continuous story is a little too much when you're still in the stage of getting too know the author's writing style and mystery quality. Overall though, it's still very good, although I start to miss the dead body and the closed room part of the usual mystery story . What do you yourself think about Q series?
As for SM series, I heard the author reccomend that if a reader can only read 1 book among the SM series, he'll reccomend 笑わない数学者, which is why I was thinking of ordering that book first. Do you agree with his view? And is this series one big continuation or just separate cases with same cast?( as in will I miss anything if I start from 笑わない数学者insteas of すべてがFになる! ?)
From playing as a Medic . I don't use any boosters, but it's a combination of a really good and cooperative squad + platoon + outfit. My medic is pretty much maxed out in cert gear (nano weave armor, max medi-gun) and I use the Sirius. Amazing medium-close range gun. 50 bullet clip with insane rate of fire lets you take out anyone fast, especially Heavy Assault's with their shield. It also has to do with being in the right areas whether it's doing an alert or just a regular territory fight. Follow the populated infantry areas. If there's a lot of allied and enemy infantry, I don't bother shooting, I just have my medi-gun out. Stay in the back or stay behind allied infantry so you don't die. Oh, the revive grenade works WONDERS. I think the most I got with one grenade was probably 7 or so revives with one nade. It should be a given to get a lot of certs during a Biolab alert. It's just loaded with infantry to revive.
I think the most contributing factor to getting a lot of certs is having a good outfit/platoon/squad that sticks together especially since you get bonus to healing and revives if you revive them.
W-wha!? He's the writer of そして二人だけになった.O_O. That title was great O_O. That means I know what to order in my next novel batc . Thanks for the answer. Good luck with your exam, and let's talk more about mystery novel once you successfully finish your exam
