Sounds cool and the title is pretty attractive (and sensible!).
Are the novels currently being translated or is there a manga adaptation?

Well, the first volume has 373 pages while the second has 343.

I swear I have the same tastes in choosing the same stories as Japanzai or something.

Was that last part of the chapter a flashforward? Is the rest going to be about how he went from nerd to terrorist in that month?

Lol didn't knew you were a few step ahead of us (so sleeping isn't it?) ... thanks for the prologue chapter ^^.. will you also hibernate from tling some LN sempai just like your name ? XD

anyway aside from Danmachi this series gave me already a good vibes bec. of the KNLS ranking wherein it defeat the more popular or well known ones, another one I'm curious is Amaryllis.. >_<

I really like the setting of this series and wish that JPZ will made a regular monthly update of this series...

I think the series wouldn't yet flashforward up to the terrorist part since that would made a lot of plotholes.

Ch 1

Only in a LN/Manga would a MC still be forced to attend school even when s/he is homeless. I like that Naoto lampshaded how ridiculous it was at least.

Anyway, I really like this! The characters aren't too original but they are likable enough that doesn't matter much. Naoto's machinopile antics are pretty enduring and he seems to be a pretty decent (though lacking a bit in common sense) guy. Ryuzu's pretty hilarious especially her dialogue and very cute. She has second most lewd contract ceremony I've ever seen too not to mention that "last name". lol The two play off eachother pretty nicely so far, so I'm looking forward to more interaction between them.

Of course the most interesting part about this LN/Manga is the setting. So the earth has died at some point and turned into a giant mechanical clock-ike planet huh. I'm quite to curious to see how more of this world works, but certainly raises a ton question such how exactly is the planet considered dead among other things. Ryuzu's herself is quite a enigma too because I don't think she's fully mechanical given that she actually has saliva.

Ultimately however, I have nowhere the plot is going since the first chapter doesn't really establish one and only hints some future event. It's qkay because it was entertaining enough of a read and there is clearly groundwork being laid for good story. So yeah, I'm on board!

I will keep this on hold for now, at least until I start hearing few good things about it.

Too many other books I take it?

You could try the manga adaptation's first chapter as a sort of test run.

It's an interesting concept. The clockwork planet isn't some perpetual motion machine, but extracts energy from gravity.

RyuZU is freaking powerful despite saying that she is the weakest among the Initial-Y sisters.


Spoiler for her ability:
