Where can I find them?

Pretty much any Japanese Anime blog, just Google the Japanese name of the title and you'll find a few of them.

But they're all illustrations of girls, hardly what I would use to judge the story itself... That's why I'm hoping someone here is brave enough to have actually read it so we can freely bash it

From what I see, during a crappy day of school. He was forced to join the club with Homare, the male lead is your typical Keitaro tier wuss.

This is a MiliOta (military Otaku) catering LN. Guns and boobs and a duo of busty females.

Hmmm, all that has been done before with frustratingly common level of success... I'm guessing the problem comes from execution and writing style as people had mentioned?

I understand some fan raging..about IS novel.. and so on.. But hey sometimes creator want to try new things.. yeah the whole he can go back to IS. over all.

people need to understand sometime writers get tired or want to take break from a big project. they want to branch off tap new things

just let him be.. he will look for strength again. some one post before how on his blog he talk about the editors and so on comments , that he just doesn't see that he sucks.. that is really stupid to say..oh he sucks he just doesnt see it from the editor comments. people get hurt when someone criticize there work..ok =p

think about JK she had dark times too

well sorry to say but JK for potter was the same too. before harry potter came out, When she toke the story around .a lot of company's told her it suck.. the comment on everything. wanted to change his character. she talk about how some editors said some real mean stuff to her.


she feel bully too.. at times gave up..but


wasn't tell she found this one place which saw something no one else saw and harry potter made history =D

forgive my typing..but just hang in there alright. he wrote this novel for a long time and even had the ideas before . sometime big projects like these take time, have there ups and down.. it toke jk years...to write everything before she even touch a company about her story.. before that she had dark times..gave up writing for a bit..and found strength to go back at it

yes when she wrote harry she did all in one big thing before she even touch companys. but yeah just go easy on him alright =D this one toke off..so sometime..it can get overwhelming and so on

Except that it's one thing to believe in the work you created (Rowling) and another thing to whine about everybody inrcluding your fans who make a few criticisms, in an extremely unprofessional manner through social media. Note the word 'fans'. Meaning they already enjoyed what he has written in the first few volumes of IS. Another problem is, he's not just taking a break but being lazy and easily distracted. Which was one of the believed causes, whether direct or indirect, of his previous fiasco with MF. Just look at his previous tweets. It's one thing for publishers to have something against the author, and another thing for even the readers to think that he should 'dogeza' (prostrate/kneel and apologize) and 'hansei' (reflect on his behavior), but up to date, he still believe he has not done anything wrong. Sure, I should take the publicly available info with a pinch of salt since I'm not an insider. But I can never believe that he actually has zero fault in everything, which appears to be what he's believing and asserting. That kind of attitude just blows all kind of credibility in his defenses. If he were to say that he's partly responsible for some stuff etc., and denying the rest and suffering injustice, it might have been still possible for people to swallow it.

Disclaimer: That's my two cents. Don't take what I say as the gospel truth.

People aren't complaining that he shouldn't do any new stories, God and Aleister knows how many authors have more than one project at work.

People are saying that his new work just outright sucks.

That, couple with the lack of professionalism in twitters, pretty much destroyed his already shaky reputation.

That's why they're saying at the very least he should focus on saving IS. But personally, I don't think he's capable of doing so.

That's because Kamachi writes EVERYTHING and does it on time- What does he have to complain about ?

If anything I recall a twitter by his editor complaining that he needs to rest more and stop working so much

I doubt it. They probably check if their authors/assets are high on drugs since the legal trouble wouldn't be worth the hassle if he got caught. Besides, Izuru is supposedly very sickly, so taking drugs is a bad idea.
