14 books, damn. Praying that the Yen doesn't skyrocket in the time it takes for my last preordered LN's release and for the shipment to get sent out.

Decided to also grab Rokka no Yuusha as part of it. Here's to looking forward to awesome readings some time soon, I can't wait!

This morning I finished reading Saitou Alice wa Yuugai Desu by Chuui. Among all the duds I hit every year, this is certainly one of the worst.

The plot is incredibly familiar: high school girl Alice is a walking vortex of misfortune, and all of society shuns her, except for our protagonist, high school boy Hideaki, who decides to "study" her and discovers she's just a retarded kitten girl who wants friends more than anything in the world. And then there's the busty blonde American teacher who is really a member of the powerful secret organization The Laboratory that operates out of America and has coerced the Japanese government into letting them research Alice.

Uh. So far so good, I guess? If your eyes haven't glazed over yet, you probably don't watch enough anime. The writing is equally horrible, because the author seems to have a thesaurus fetish, where every line is a tedious display of Look How Clever I Am. The experience of reading the book doesn't exactly improve when I have to grab the dictionary every other line.

All in all, it's tremendously bad. Towards the end, I got the impression I was supposed to be feeling some kind of empathy for the girl who decides to be hit by a cruise missile as a means of dutiful suicide, but it's all so ridiculously predictable that the only response it elicits is a pitiful giggle at the ever-rising levels of terrible.

That's the spirit! I ended up buying a lot of series in May as I couldn't decide which one to buy. In the end I took all of them because of the very favorable yen/euro ratio .

Agreed! Unfortunately, I had to cancel it, dropping four volumes of 剣刻の銀乙女 along the way. I think I have enough titles on my plate...for now. Though, I am still morbidly curious about it, and might pick it up sometime in the future.

I hope Grancrest and Rokka no Yuusha doesn't wring my savings dry.

It's タイム・リープ, so Time Leap as I said.

Unfortunately, now that I look it up on Amazon (and Honto), it seems like it's going out of print or something. I can only find the kindle version for the first volume (of two). Hopefully it'll show up on paper again.

It's not the same as Tokikake, this is a completely different author and was written much later. It, too, was made into a movie, though.

Some reviews for Maisaka Kou's 夜姫と亡国の六姫士 just came in. Comes recommended if you're a fan of his senki stuff, and it even lives up to the High Fantasy genre. Tons and tons of characters right off the bat, though, and it seems that pacing can come across as weird regarding these character introductions.

.......Same genre as Gabriela Senki ? Ohhhh..... Wonder why this author like writing all girls type novel this much... The only male protagonist novel he had written is Ochieta Ryou Naga in MF Bunko men.

Finished Golden Time vol 4 by Takemiya Yuyuko. Massive leap up in quality after that horrible book last week. Still the same story about the university student with amnesia stuck in intersecting love triangles, but it's written so vividly that it's more enjoyable than it sounds. Four volumes in now, and it continues to be good, but very much leaning toward gloom and depression, so it's a bit exhausting.

With the anime adaptation scheduled for this fall, I'm feeling stressed to catch up. 6 novels out so far, and I'd imagine there'll be a 7th out for the anime premiere. Wonder if she'll wrap up the novel series along with the anime, like she did for Toradora.

What happens when you mix absurd comedy, harem, tokusatsu and Lovecraft elements with each other? You get Nyaruko! But what if you take out the tokusatsu and Lovecraft and replace them with otaku and chuuni shounen elements? Then you get あるいは現在進行形の黒歴史, a light novel series by あわむら赤光.

Spoiler:


As an absurd comedy, it doesn’t even feign to put up some degree of realism behind its fantastical elements. What you read from the first volume is essentially what you get further down the line down to even volume 10. Those looking for a serious read are better off looking somewhere else; but for those who want something just as goofy, childish and crazy as Nyaruko, they might find this series just as entertaining. It’s akin to a rollercoaster ride with no semblance of seriousness or dramatic brevity save for some moments, but it’s still a fun ride to be had.
