EDIT THE TRANSLATION OF THE NOVEL

This is my 1st web novel post so I'm a little nervous in making it cause I don't want to run into trouble.
The translation of it has begun.
Its manga version is being serialized in Comic Walker and it's a monthly release.

I actually like this one a bit. I like this author's stuff in general, with Tamer's Mythology having won me over—now unfortunately reduced to once a year updates.
The author is pretty amazing at building a fantasy setting in general, and does battles and ability growths nicely. He's good at setting up anticipation, in that sense.

This is probably the only novel on Narou that has a vampire MC that plays it pretty straight. As in he doesn't conquer the sunlight weakness. Undead exist through curses, and like actual curses. So strength and weakness comes in bundles. Like vampires can't enter homes uninvited, can't stand garlic, are weak to silver, and die in sunlight—and there's really not much they can do about these glaring weaknesses. There's also tiers to vampires—lesser vampires are of course weaker than normal vampires, but have more resistance to their weaknesses in exchange due to the vampiric curse being weaker.
MC also has a fun and satisfying personality. As in he actually has a personality and isn't a blank slate.

Anyway it's a fun read. I don't know why exactly but I associate this novel with 冥王様が通るのですよ!, so if you like this one you'll probably like 冥王様が通るのですよ! too. Has a good monster-protagonist with a decently detailed setting. It's also like the one novel that makes use of the MC not aging and has substantial time skips.

I mean, there's been several I suppose? Depends on your definition of major. Plus he's typically always been afraid of that thing in particular so that doesn't actually tell me how far you got.

After two weeks, the new chapter has appeared in the web comic version. the manga version will be out on the 22nd . Due to my limit of understanding Japanese, I use my translating system. Feel free to correct me.
