Either that or he suffers chuunibyou on occasion.

Too much fanservice actually deviates from the good writing and events that unfold. Also, most of those fanservice moments are in character and have pretty good scenes and circumstances involving them, not just thrown in. Personally, the amount of fanservice involved is just about right. I don't want it taking over the flow and pacing of the story just for some cheap boobs and asses or whatever.
Kah, you're right, i was just overobsessed with fanservice. Currently i stumbled on Volume 3, but i was wondering why volume 1 and 2 ended in cliffhanger.

@Erhjegel. In your opinion, in what volume will the first arc end?

The first arc regarding Brune's inner turmoil ends in Volume 5, and sets up the teaser and hook for the second arc beginning in Volume 6 onwards. As to what it will involve, no idea.

Yes. YES. YESSSSSSSSSSS! Lyudmila, your big damn heroes moment was definitely perfect! A bit later and Tigre and his ten archers would have definitely been overwhelmed!

*still fist pumping and excited over Lyudmila's arrival*

Well, there are people with incredibly inhuman reflex who can slice a non-lethal bullet in half without seeing, catching arrow might be possible if they know beforehand where the arrow will land, at the price of their hand...

Arrow from a bow can't match arrow from crossbow in term of destructive force or speed, same as how it's impossible to compare them to a gun, or a rifle.

You have the point there, but this is merely fiction work. Anything could happen as long as the author wants it.

Well, arrow from a bow indeed stronger and faster than crossbow, but have less accuracy, not to mention that crossbow capable of firing several arrows at once.

Okay. From what I've read so far of Alexandra, I definitely want to see her meet Tigre just to see how she'd take to him. As well as see how Elen would react once her Vanadis best friend starts getting all chummy with her property, heh. Probably not going to be pretty, judging by how she reacts to Mila or Sophia's displays of affection towards Tigre.

Such a lucky guy. Tigre is slowly building his harems where all of them are princesses. At least i wanna see Alexandre in action, especially her dual blade fighting (I became obsessed with dual wielding after watching episode 9 of SAO)

Spoiler for Daybreak Evacuation:


I love reading things with accompanying music to fit the mood.

Not only did I love Lyudmila's appearance, but I also love how she plays with him later on (like a cat playing with a cornered mice) during their negotiation. Hahaha. She's definitely got some plans for some husband weaning...

Plus I am definitely laughing my ass off right now as to how the Viralts treat Tigre. Elen's Viralt, much like her master, is friendly and on good terms with Tigre. Lyudmila's Viralt, on the other hand, is jealous of Tigre because of her interest in him. Hahahaha.

Here are the illustrations from volume 01 to 05.


Spoiler for Volume 01:


Spoiler for Volume 02:


Spoiler for Volume 03:


Spoiler for Volume 04:


Spoiler for Volume 05:


If you disagre with any of my descriptions of the pictures, feel free to comment.

P.S: Notice that the illustrations of volume 05 with the exception of the cover are done by another artist, YANAI Nobuhiko, wich is the illustrator of the manga. The usual illustrator is Yoshi*o.

^ You should probably add that to the project on Baka-Tsuki. I believe this forum has a "no pictures from raws" policy

The original illustrator for the lightnovel became ill. Thats why the manga illustrator for the Madan no Ou to Vanadis replaced him.

I will not make any complain for illustration vol 5. That's done by different person.
I'm sorry out of topic, but i really want to ask this.
Illustration for novel and drawing of manga is far too different, is there any requirement for an illustration for novel?

Yes. Her spear exudes this hostile coldness at Tigre, compared to Elen's long sword, which sends out winds that caress Tigre.

Mmm, just a minor tidbit.
Vanadis = the princesses
Viralt = the weapons
Veda = the special skills of the Viralts
