So 激突のヘクセンナハト will be my first foray into Kawakami. What to expect?
Owari no Chronicle and Horizon feel impenetrable nowadays, so I chose something different to start.
Magical mecha musume battles.
Wands over 500 meters long.
I don't understand why the lengths of the series are so daunting to many people. It's not like you have to read the whole things to get into them, and reading a chapter a day is hardly a huge undertaking.
Not saying there's anything wrong with starting with Hexennacht (other than me feeling that it's a bit less serious than his other series) but still.
Nothing can get "done" without starting at some point. I think I understand what you mean though. Are you afraid of putting too much time into it and then dropping it, meaning that time was for nothing?
Because literal walls of paper are daunting.
When you get into the series, I feel that it's more of a reassuring feeling that there's still more to read.
Are there any good and comprehensive reviews of any Kawakami series?
They would be handy to link newfriends to.
Fuck you for making me choose.
I picked Owari no Chronicle only because it's over and Horizon still has time to fuck itself up.
Well, even at that point it's not so bad
until you reach the currently translated chapter of all Kawakami novels and have to resort to binging on the partial encyclopedia translation.
No, it's after Horizon.
Horizon takes place in the GENESIS era while Hexennacht takes place in OBSTACLE, which consists of multiple loops of all the eras leading up to it.
It's understandable since the technology seems to be behind Horizon. I guess Hexennacht might be in the AHEAD era of its loop?
Nigger I have like 10 more LNs and around 250 VNs in my backlog. I just can't afford to add long series into it.
Of course it's absurd to think I'd ever read all the VNs I have ready, so instead I'm just focusing on the proverbial "cream of the crop", but even that is several titles.
