Said that, I know there are light novel series where the male character is the strong one like Kazuma from Kaze no Stigma, Layfon from Regios, and Kirito from SAO. I can't say if there's more of these than weaker average normal protagonist though...

Masaki's creation is a god. What do you expect from the one who surpasses the dimensional goddesses.

The three mentioned by chaoz are debatable harem but the main lead is stuck to a girl. While kaze no stigma's Kazuma has his present gf ayane.... he let go of his past girlfriend because its dead already, Layfon is emo mode because Leerin dumped him but he has a harem girls XD and Kirito despite having a harem has a girlfriend too.

At this point I had abandon the 'harem' tag and just kept it at 'Light Novel Protagonists'... But Layfon has a harem didn't he?

Nevermind that, my point is that more often than not, my impression is that male leads in harem situations tends to be weak in the combat areas as compared to the girls.

well to balance things out. At first appearance the male lead might be weak or he is weak but has a hax ability to compensate for it to make enemies beg for their mommies.

and by hax means he can shoot bullets, do a supersonic stab, turn into a gigolo, and dual wield a deagle AND a 92FS without worry.

I also realized just now... he has the opposite loadout....

default loadout (spy IMO)
92FS (can we unofficially call it a 93R because of its illegal hax?)
balisong

new loadout (heavy combat IMO)
desert eagle
seax

Okay, I'm confused with some aspect about Kinji's modded 92F.

Despite being a genius in customizing weapons, sometimes due to sloppy work, the guns she works at has a probability to malfunction. Later, Kinji's Beretta's 3-burst function stops working and instead it fires 2 bullets at the same time.

Does this mean that the burst limiter kicks in early after 2 rounds instead of 3 like it should, or is this a physically impossible double-feed?

(Physically impossible because there's only one round exposed at the feed lips at any time.)

It's pretty much the impossible two bullets with little to no time between their firing. The person who modified his gun is S class skill but ranked A class because she charges too much and does a lot of illegal stuff.

The First Male character class automatically gives him +10 Haremizer. Enough to mow down a lot of girls. HSS is just a 2min cd ulti for the real hardcases.

I just realized that I shouldn't read Aria or it's physically impossible for me to translate.

My thoughts keep drifting back to happy, fluffy clouds.
And the Hayate no Gotoku panorama scene. Everytime I see one of those mono no aware panoramas I automatically remember that. And, if I'm unlucky, I start thinking about, for some inexplicable reason, Hoshi no Samidare, which is where I start crying.

Oh, do you only remember the sad scenes? or also the funny and epic ones?
Because the mayor scene for me is the epic one of Yuuhi reaching Samidare when she is preparing for the finisher against the Planet Earth.

dun worry... it will eventually pass on... just try not to think of much... your case is similar to someone I know much... but in a very different setting....

Raising a flag with Jeanne eh? Way to go Kinji! although it was unintentionally, anyways it counts..

Hikari dont want be mean but a little suggestion in this sentence:

"But, the fortunate thing is, because of matters dealing with her mother's trial, she missed the field trip...and Shirayuki, staying at the Hotogi Kyoto Shrine, would have a hard time going onto the streets"

That "she" shouldnt be better as Aria? I know everyone know who is the "she" but just saying plz dont kill me

There's alot I wanted to say after reading v2 and 3... What I don't like about Kinji's attitude toward girls as well as his double tsundere act with Aria... How heartwarming that scene with Shiraiyuki and later Riko... The awesome fight scene with Vlad...

But somehow all of that gets shuffled to the back of my mind when I reach the epilogue and found out who Kana is... Talk about being hit by a freight train !! All the clues about Sayanaki were nothing compared to this JDAM that was dropped on me...

Now everything totally made sense... I mean if my brother did that even I would have a ridiculously hard time talking about it...

Are you talking about the beach scene with Shirayuki? I'm glad you liked it.

@doomknight: You're completely right. Thanks for the catch.

so you did start reading the novel already. I thought you will wait after the series is finish.

But all that is still not reaching the tip of the blade. Vol 4 will hit bad.

Was it the one they went on a day-to? Sorry, even though I just read it hours ago my memory is fuzzy

Basically the scene after Kinji and Aria 'broke up', Kinji took Shirayuki out to see the fireworks... And subsequently the fight with Jeanne, especially the underwater kissu... And that one line he said to her in his HSS mode

Well now that we have an OC thread, I figure it's best if I'm kept close in the loop.
