That will be a huuuuge disappointment to me

The illustrations do not do service to the seriousness of the volumes and the fights, they seem out of place, since they concentrate mostly on fanservice portions.

I think it would look better with pictures similar to the more realistic, gritty style, somewhat similar to the volume art for Maoyuu Maou Yuusha.

The fanservice portions of the story seem a bit tacked on, out of place again with the rest of the story, almost directed just for the target audence and crammed inbetween somehow, between the politics/warfare.
I started realizing about fan service after encountering DxD. The hell with the fanservice. It destroys my "action sequences".

I have dropped various animes because they have nothing but this.

Still, we are in a forum made to read LIGHT novels, if you want discuss Shakespeare or other classic "high lit", find the correct forum to do so.

Reading light novels is a guilty pleasure for most of us anyway. I like to nit pick plots now and then, but I still understand it is not meant to be a great piece of Lit~
LNs are my stress busters. So yeah, don't compare this with literature
