Will the shy and introvert Shioriko solve the mystery of the books?
Alright, I managed to finish a draft of the first volume out there, and since the manga is translated by Japanzai up till Chapter 4, I think it would be appropriate to begin a thread here. (Chuffed at the fact that volume 1 is done, but I do not think I will begin work on volume 2 until next year)

Of course, I would say it is an absolute delight to read this series, and also to work on this. It is certainly a refreshing change from the usual stuff, for once.

Also to wit, the main genre of this story is 'mystery'.

A very great LN(although MW Bunko is not considered as light novel label). If you like mystery with hint of romance, this is a must read IMO. The case is never been about murder or complicated trick, but somehow Mikami-sensei still manage to make an entertaining read from a mundane case.

Also, Shioriko is so hngghhh inducing, and Goura is a strong and good male watson character.

Seriously?!

You mean to tell me this is a manga mystery series that doesn't involve murder or some weird ass event that leaves me thinking "just wtf is going on here?!"?!

Well now you have my full attention, off to read me thinks!

Great LN, I haven't read tons of LNs but it's the first one that reads like a novel instead of a manga script. Great mood, great characterization, mysteries were fine, it doesn't take the reader for an idiot but explains everything clearly at the same time. And Shinokawa is <3 <3. I can understand why this is so popular in Japan.

The translation/edition is great too it almost read like an english book with few mistakes so thank you Ping!
