But as from what I had heard before reading the volume, I was expecting something much more spectacular rather than just a flash of black jet/dragon/tornado.

Well the Getchu site say よし☆ヲ is the artist, so I'm guessing the usual novel artist? Unless ofc it's just not updated or something like that <3

I get the feeling that this will end the same as the folklore. For example Tigre will die at the same place and time as Ellen.

I know there was a post about the folklore, but could someone tell the story of it (just the main pointsof the folklore).

I think the folklore where this series based from is barely recognizable as for now, even in Europe. I once tried using full power of my PC for google searching and the result was zero

Read the translations, pretty good story, however it was hurt by a few things.

The illustrations do not do service to the seriousness of the volumes and the fights, they seem out of place, since they concentrate mostly on fanservice portions. The designs, stressing the cuteness of the characters is also a disservice to the author. I think it would look better with pictures similar to the more realistic, gritty style, somewhat similar to the volume art for Maoyuu Maou Yuusha.

The fanservice portions of the story seem a bit tacked on, out of place again with the rest of the story, almost directed just for the target audence and crammed inbetween somehow, between the politics/warfare.

Otherwise the stories were an interesting light quick read.

Too many "balloons" all over the place, eh? I felt the same thing as well, buddy.

They attracted the readers through the illustration and once they read it they will be hooked on the story instead. It is just basic market strategy.

It's true that it is a basic market strategy, but think about now days there are so many manga/LN out there that the author has to find a way to get the audience's attention. It is like going into a restaurant the outside looks decent, has good food versus a restaurant that looks gorgeous outside attracting attention with good food, which one would you choose?
Sorry for the analogy that doesn't work out well but it's the pnly one I could come up with. ( sitting inside a restaurant right now).

Light novels have changed into total shit in recent years.

They’ve become an endless series of proxy stories, self inserted into by loser Otaku and NEETs. Light Novels, and their exploitation of the basest of urges, have become a well-oiled machine. Light Novels have changed. Generic Gary Stu heroes carry over powered Gary Stu weapons, wearing dark and edgy Gary Stu gear. The wish fulfillment inside their bodies enhance and regulate their abilities. Genetic control. Information control. Emotion control. Harem control.

Everything is monitored, and kept under control. Light Novels changed. The age of bold characters and interesting plots has become the age of predictable self insert masturbation fantasy. All in the name of averting catastrophe from the the NEETS. And he who controls the LN market, controls the anime adaptation. Light Novels have changed. When the industry is under total control, shitty self insert stories… become routine. Light novels…. have changed.

Since the dawn of literature, when our ancestors first discovered the enlightened path with pen and paper, ink has been spilled in the name of everything, from Gary Stus, to harems, to simple masturbatory urges.

In the year 2012, after a millenia of written conflict, the destructive nature of the animu industry could sustain itself no longer. The world was plunged into an abyss of shitty adaptations, and otaku fandom.

But it was not, as some had predicted, the end of the industry. Instead, the apocalypse was just the prologue to another bloody chapter of animu history. For otakus had succeeded in destroying the world.

The rise of Gary Stus and Harem kings has been steady of the last decade. For we have lost much in the times of competent and deep characters due to Otakus and NEETS given a protagonist which they can fantasize living their lives. Unfortunately in the anime industry, these people are the ones who are buying everything, this is the prodominent market and thus creators and LN has shifted their focus to these type of stories just to stay afloat.

Anyone realizes that majority of LN in recent years have been changed into some kind of wish-fulfillment stories? With dominant/sometimes stereotypical MC, full of girls, circumtances where the MC can keep adding his harem members, and such? sorry for off-topic and kinda generalizing things, it's just my own opinion anyway.

Or perhaps, that guy come from the age where LNs like Cowboy Bebop/slayers/Maru-Ma still became standard story.

Fucking brilliant.

To the people who don't get it, he's parodying the opening to Metal Gear Solid 4 where the main character has a monologue about war and how it has become routine.

If they demand some generic harem, they will get generic harem LNs.
Publishers promote them, consumers buy them, as simple as that.

@Insane, wasn't Cowboy Bepop an anime original? Since when did it become a LN?
