Dawnbringer: The Story of the Machine God (Novel)

Summary: Taken from mangaupdates.

Quote:
Vice Admiral Lezirth Dawnbringer, the Commander of Dawn Corps in the First Marines of the Space Federation. He became a war hero after leading the human race to victory with the army of alien life form known as Letix.

However, when he awakes from coldsleep, 120 years has passed?! Being re-recruited into the navy in a world far from the ideal peaceful one that he dreamt of, Lezirth is treated as an attention seeker. So eventually, he and his former boss Luise gets assigned to a platoon led by a half Elcro girl. Amongst the great forces of the Federation and Alliance, Lezirth must find his very own Kishin Dawnbringer and charge in to the battlefield!
http://www.mangaupdates.com/series.html?id=101997

Cover for vol 1.


Vol 1 of the novel is already translated and its a good read. Really funny and heavy in sci-fi with corrupt government mix with humor. I find it enjoyable and would like to share the knowledge, seeing there wasn't a thread for it.

Kishin means demon god. dawnbringer is one of the alter-armour that are kishin class or literally machine gods. Dawnbringer is owned by the MC.

There are 12 kishin though originally there are only 8.

hmm I'm not sure if there is a wiki for this one where one can check for information.

But this story is heavy on sci-fi terminology that one really needs to understand. Specially the alien race and the relationship between each race.

Just finished volume 1 and waiting for the second.

You were right about overkill. If that was volume 1, I want to see what comes later!

In a way, its serial escalation is kind of like Nanatsu no Taizai.

It starts off with overkill, then it goes up to the point where you can only keep reading and anticipating the next one!

Ah, nanatsu no taizai is also overkill but I think a sniping machine that can annihilate you from 10 light years away is just........ >_> too much OP. Even with 50 hours cooldown.

Even Tatsuya can't be that OP and the MC is a closet perv that can fight a kishin class with a minion class. He even won with only 5% kishin. Man Lezrith change the meaning of OP MC but I'm fine. He is a stupid closet perv MC.

I can understand what you mean with Ichika. I try to sympathize with him, but I can't...

The only words I have for him and every other typical harem protagonist: Get a spine. It'll keep you from getting your ass whipped like a bitch, by a bitch.

I'm tired of the abusive girls, too. So freaking many of them has completely worn my patience...

As for Lezirth...

I don't think Lezirth would be that easy to stab when he can teleport.

Not to mention, I like the fact that he has actual justification for his confidence. He went through the training, up the ranks, and just generally did what he actually had to do.

Also, I'm enjoying that more stories with overpowered protagonists are showing up.

Interesting setting and story and very likable male lead. In many cases, I'd be supporting the tsundere, but not here. Goddess Luise all the way as she and Lezirth are so precious to one another and have a special relationship that far surpasses the other two girls. And if those dreams/memories scenes of the past regarding Replicant Sample C means something significant, then I think Luise might actually be the true heroine. Or so I hope.

More capable, badass, intelligent, and overpowered protagonists with a substantial personality like Lezirth are definitely more than welcome.

Fufu. I had a feeling she might be Dawnbinger.'s incarnation. I'm completely okay with Lezirth x Luise and Dawnbinger. ^

Aren't they all siblings? specially Lezirth and Dawnbringer. You can even call them twins while Luise is the eldest of the children of Letix.

As Children of Letix, Lezirth and Luise could be considered siblings as they are of the same family, but it sounds more like it's the clan/race type than blood ties. Since Letix cells were harvested and inserted into Alter Armour in general, then they'd be closer to being parents than anything else. Though even if they all turned out to be all related....love is fair to all!

They use the cell from the letix and created the first generation replicants or the children of letix. If you ask me. Its closer to cloning than an actual artificial birth.

The name for the kishins are indeed interesting and show how they are portrayed. Specially with the title together with the name.

And yes, Dawnbringer the sword of justice will show in the near end of vol 1.

Finally finished reading it, yey~

To tell you the truth I'm having problem imagining the shape and design for the alter-armour They gave us the class tier but not so much description for the design?

Eh, guess I'll read it again using my phone later

Oh and I guess the promised girl is not the admiral.. maybe dawnbringer human form? Or maybe the admiral has some connections with it too so in a way the promised girl is the admiral

The promised girl is indeed the admiral. the girl that appear in the end of vol 1 is different and probably the spiritual form or human form of dawnbringer. The admiral or Luise is the girl beside Lezirth in the experiment institution. She is also the oldest of the child of Letix by few days. She is also the girl Lezirth promise with to protect but he abandon her in the lab. Which is why Luise said that Lezirth lied to her a lot of times already and the current situation doesn't even help because there are thieving cats that threaten her Lezirth.

The impression I get is that the First Replicants are a race of new humans created via cloning/genetic manipulation with added properties taken from the Letix/Old One. So, I think offspring is closer to what they are, thus why they're called Children of Letix

T-Those thieving cats! Luise is right to call them that and be angry. One of the things that annoys me is how despite not having a good reasons to be jealous/to do so, Liu and Aroha try to get in the way and steal Lezirth away from Luise. Liu's falling for Lezirth after that one incident was done pretty poorly and Aroha doesn't seem to be a love interest heroine and is there to just cockblock, so she's a rather pointless character. A love triangle involving Luise and Liu would be a lot better, imo.

Aroha for now is just a tease for Liu and Luise and probably a support fo Liu but for vol 2. It looks like she will be the one taking the spot. So we will get her development later on.

Damn hot Aroha as a cover for vol 2.

I prefer a love triangle or at least a develop relationship.

One of the thing I hate of harem is the girls lack substance or development. Which is why I prefer love triangle or at least low number of girls.
