Shuumatsu Nani Shitemasuka? (Sukasuka) [Light Novel]


Name: Shuumatsu Nani Shitemasu ka? Isogashii desu ka? Sukutte Moratte Ii desu ka?
Associated name: 終末なにしてますか? 忙しいですか? 救ってもらっていいですか?
Author: Akira Kareno
Genre: Drama, Fantasy, Romance, Sci-Fi

Quote:
Synopsis: Five hundred years have passed since humanity went extinct at the hands of the fearsome “Beasts”. Even up in the sky, where the surviving races dwell on floating islands, these monstrosities constantly threaten to bring death and destruction. Only a small group of young girls, the Leprechauns, can wield the ancient weapons needed to defeat these creatures. Into the girls’ unstable and fleeting lives, where a call to certain death could come at any moment, enters an unlikely character: a young man who lost everything five hundred years ago, the last living human awakened from a long, icy slumber.

Oh, someone picked this up. It's one of the best recent novels I've read.

BTW to take some wrong ideas out of the way.

-no harem
-no ecchi
-almost no action (first real action scene is by the end of volume 3, figure).

peoples who want to read stuff like dxd are better looking for something else. There's reason for why allthe characters on the covers of the first 3 volumes are all crying.

4 published, 5th is getting out in april. It will be the last one for the first arc, the next arc will start right away with a first volume, and a different name (think of mondaiji-> last embryo, basically it's the same case, as well as same editor)

Reading what has been translated so far it makes me remember Aselia the Eternal. The crying covers bit makes me wonder how many will die too.

Most of those characters are in the process of losing/did lose something very precious to them. While there are moment of happiness as well, thîs isn't a romcom or any happy ecchi comedy.

well, it was mentioned already that they are disposable replacements for humans to fight the 17 Beasts ... though how do they gather the girls, unless they are vat-borned . . .

Except those "girls" aren't defined as "girls" but as "things" per se, and that they don't "protect humanity" since humanity has been wiped out completely 500 years ago (minus one person, but that's not him they're protecting~). They aren't fighting to save the world either. The world is beyond salvation AFAIK so the surviving races pretty much gave up on it. Don't try to find cliché settings in a place where there isn't any, seriously.

they'll only make greater effort in gaining back the land below if they can somehow manage to kill some of the Beasts . . . but since they are having (very) great difficulty in doing so . . . .

So let me get this straight, only female leprechauns can use this powerful weapon, yet the MC, a male, can use them as well. Let me guess, he's also way stronger than anyone else - despite the fact that he should not even be able to use this power in the first place - saves the girl who's supposed to be the best of her kind, and every girl falls for him.

You literally can just read the synopsis of these light novels and imminently know every single plot point. That's depressing.

Not only is he not stronger, he doesn't even fight. He is a former solider but in the present the only thing he does is supervise the Leprechauns and take care of them. There are almost no action scenes.

Just about all of the female Leprechauns are considerably younger than him so no harem going on there. The post above your in spoilers even sums up all the romance in this series.
