If Rentaro is this jacked, then does Enju have any notable abilities?

Yep.

Every notable character is a badass to some degree though.

I wouldn't really call Rentaro "jacked".

Again the people he faces are all monsters.

His abilities as it is, is around 150ish-200 in IP ranking (he beat higher ranking people than 150 but that's due to a combination of planning, luck and a lot of determination).

There are quite a few stronger then him.

So he's around where he's suppose to be.

Basically not weak enough to be useless but not strong enough to make challenges look easy.

Anyways about Enju.....

Why does Kisara hate her grandpa so much? Is he secretly an asshole? Is he responsible for making Rentaro a cyborg? Is she jealous of his awesome beard? Did I really ask that last question?

Why did Rentaro become a cyborg and is this series ongoing? I looked it up on dengeki's website and there are only four novels with the last novel being published last August.

It's still ongoing. I've tweeted the author and according to him, the fifth volume is going to be late.

Spoiler for spoilers:


And yeah, the novels are still ongoing and unless canceled I would expect it to continue for a while. There's still a lot of questioned unanswered and a lot of plot to be developed.

The author's just fairly slow in writing.

It doesn't help that each novel is fairly long (not horizon level but above the likes of To Aru and DxD) and complicated in words (as Hemisphere pointed out).

I would expect the next one to be latter this year if not next year.

On a different note the summary of volume 1 chapter 2 part 1, 2 and 3 is here. First time summarizing so forgive me if I got a part wrong or sounded to long winded.

Spoiler for summary of volume 1 chapter 2 part 1, 2 and 3:


I'll do more latter.

Fourth volume clocked in at 376 pages, and that's pretty long, not to mention heavy to hold while reading.

If it counts for anything, massive kudos for your brief summaries; not just for kindling interest for this series (which IMO carries its atmosphere, mood and tension pretty well), but also for doing that with this series' level of vocabulary in mind, and making it easier to grasp for those who do not have to face the JP head-on.

Thanks for the encouragement guys.

Anyways presenting the chapter 2 part 4.

Spoiler for chapter 2 part 4:



I know that I promised the rest of chapter 2 but frankly part 4 was a bitch to summarize.

Lots of confusing word usage plus lots of dialogue. TBH I made a mistake of overly summarizing the dialogue portions to the point where they sound more like translations (the Sumire and Rentaro portion especially).

I'll get to the last part of chapter 2 and hopefully get some of chapter 3 done tomorrow.

For what it's worth, I don't think that it would have been any less possible for you to simplify the dialogue any other way, considering the vocabulary level in this LN. If anything, these are as good as they come for brief summaries.

If anyone complains, just point out to them the level of word usage this series has, haha.

Once again, you have my utmost respect for kindling interest for this series.

Thanks for the summary.

Kids are total assholes in most Japanese media, aren't they.
