LN fag here, I'm currently up to date with the 15 volumes out there and considering it is extremely rare to get a UMD thread, you guys can throw any questions you have about the LN at me and I'll answer them.
>>136033256 >What the hell is happening in the latest novel Prince (now king) Edmund took over the Royal Academy and basically everything went to hell once again thanks to that. The city is overwhelmed under a layer of "miasma" and a lot of characters died.
Raishin made a pack with one of the Roses (Black Rose) to be able to fight again after being haxed really bad in the events of volume 14 (thanks to Hinowa who stabbed him).
>Is that shitty tournament still a thing It is technically ruined in the last volume, but by that time there was only Raishin and his brother left anyway. Raishin beat Loki, who was the only other participant left before getting to Magnus.
>What's Yaya up to Yaya is going to die in the same day of the last day of the evening party, which is the same day the last volume will be told in.
>What are the other haremettes doing, are there any of them winning? Probably only Charl, as she already recovered all her family and is the one that gets more attention.
>>136033307 >Has he beat up his fucking goddamn emo brother yet? Raishin rescues Hinowa and her entire clan before Magnus killed them all, and prepares to have his last fight with him at the end of volume 15. (So far Raishin has already fought him like 3 times)
Basically the entire volume 15 was a huge prologue to volume 16, which is going to be the last one, and it ended with the final Raishin VS Magnus encounter. Raishin is equipped with the Setsugetsuka (Irori, Komurasaki and Yaya) and Magnus is using his entire squadron (6 dolls).
>>136034914 >I completely forget who a lot of people were. Who is Hinowa and is Magnus his brother.
Hinowa is Raishin's formal girlfriend and the next head of the Izanagi clan (the strongest in japan after the Akabane clan was eradicated by Tenzen Akabane)
Magnus is the name Tenzen Akabane uses while in England, yes he is Raishin's older brother.
>And jesus, 16 fucking volumes. Like an anon mentioned before, did the series suffer from side character overload? Not really, because the flood of characters stopped after they introduced wiseman Griselda (Raishin's new master) in volume 6.
By the way, the characters that are confirmed to be dead as of volume 15 are Frey, Griselda and Edward Rutherford.
>>136035454 Why in the everloving fuck did Tenzen kill his family and why does he use his sister as a puppet? I got the feeling that he's not quite as evil as he's made out to be but I want to know what his deal is.
She sacrificed to save the entire academy by giving Edward rutherford some time to teleport the students and teachers outside of the evening party coliseum that was being raised high up in the sky by Violet Rose and Edmund.
Because of this she got turned into mincemeat by Genous (The academy's supposed machine doll) which is only like a giant mutant-baby.
>And what of the doggies? Pretty sure Ribiera (forgot if that's the actual name) is also dead, but forcefully kept alive by the Lette lake water by Black Rose. Frey was algo like this as she actually died way back in like volume 13, but Shouko and Black Rose kept her alive until volume 15 using this method too.
Because she wanted to take Raishin out of the picture before everything went to hell, as she knew her grandmother (Violet Rose) would attack the academy along Edmund and she wanted to keep Raishin out of all the conflict. She also used a curse on him that made his wound, aside from being way too profound, never being able to heal. This way Raishin was put into an state in which he can literally do nothing. This is also why Raishin gets haxed during volume 14, as he wanted to take out both Violet and Silver Rose, but thanks to Hinowa was completely put out of any and all events and had to get treated by Shouko to being able to properly move again.
Raishin knew he would no longer be able to fight again, and seeing how things were (the academy, the city and everything else going to hell) he decided to make a pack with Black Rose, in which Raishin told her to repair his body enough to get him to a point where he is able to fight again and in exchange, Black Rose gets a portion of his heart and puts it inside her, essentially making Raishin both his tool and his guard at the same time.
>>136036056 >Any other notable fights? Yes, there are a lot of likable fights really. There are really good ones, but there are so many I will only mention them and you can ask me for an specific one if you want more details about it.
There's: Raishin &Yaya VS Alice & Shin (volume 4) Raishin wins Raishins(4-string kouyokujin) &Yaya VS Edmund &Ikaros (volume 5) Raishin wins but severely injured Raishin&Komursaki(10-string kouyokujin with Griselda's help) VS Crimson King (a Wiseman and Griselda's master) (Volume 6) Raishin loses, but manages to repel and stab him
After this point Raishin learns to fully control Yaya after the small time skip, which basically enables him to share Yaya's herculean strength in his own body when he is with her. Raishin also gets the Ariadne's string tattoo which makes him able to use a 5-string kouyokujin whenever he wants without suffering bad effects.
Raishin&Yaya VS Edward rutherford (volumen 7) Raishin loses, but Griselda saves him Rasishin & Yaya VS Magnus & 3 squadron (Volumen 7) Raishin loses, however he is able to fight Magnus for a while before getting screwed. Raishin&Yaya VS Edmund&Ikaros (Volume 8) Raishin wins Raishin&Yaya VS Charl's dad (Volume 9) Raishin wins Raihin+Setsugetsuka(Yaya, Irori and Komurasaki) VS Crimson King (Volume 10) Raishin totally destroys him this time, wiseman Raikkonen is totally surprised how much of a "monsters" Raishin has become since volume 6, where he could only stab him Rashin + Yaya VS Silver Rose (Volume 11) Not the real silver rose, but Raishin wins Raishin+Setsugetsuka VS Gold Rose (Volume 12) Raishin cuts Gold Rose in halg, Raishin wins Raishin + Setsugetsuka VS Grey Rose+Gyunes (Volumen 13) Raishin wins Raishin + Setsugetsuka VS fucking no one because Hinowa stabs him and gets him completely out of the entire volume. Raishin + Setsugetsuka VS Magnus + full 6- squadron (volume 15-16) still undecided.
>>136036860 Forgot to add Raishin+Setsugetsuka VS Loki+Jibril (volume 15) This is their final battle, and it was a really good one in this volume. Raishin was nerfed when he fought Loki thought (because of Hinowa's stabbing) but still managed to win against him.
>>136036056 >What's Tenzen's fucking deal with using his sister as a puppet? There some sort of attribute with certain people turned into puppets?
Tenzen wants to create God, or have it reincarnate into one puppet, but the exact details are still not clear. Raishin told him he was going to make him spit all the information after the wins their fight, but that's where volume 15 ended.
>>136036299 Not clear yet, but it was implied the Izanagi clan helped him kill the clan and it was also mentioned Akabane Tenzen used to be a really nice brother.
However, he also admitted he needed Raishin for whatever he is planning and is letting him grow in each volume. He also mentioned "his stupid little brother will move as he expects it"
>>136034396 Man, now I'm sad I can't read moon and all the translation attempts failed in nonactivity and drama. I liked the LNs that were translated and it actually sounds like the author properly upped the stakes in the story.
Thanks for sharing the info, and please don't hesitate to do it again.
>>136038379 See >>136037804 There really is a lot of shit I wrote some time ago there in those forums, so if you are interested you can go read the massive amount of information I posted there and also ask whatever you want so I can answer it there too.
It is a shame. When the anime aired I tried to start translating the light novel, but there was already one guy doing it so I decided not to do it. However not he has already dropped the translation and I don't feel like doing it anymore.
However you can read all the information there (it really is a lot, so much some people told me I was writing essays of information about machine doll) so you can at least know what happens.
>>136038517 It's a shame indeed. But I know it takes a lot of effort to translate such a large amount of text. I've been involved on a translation project myself (mostly hacking/QC, it's a VN) and the amount of time it took to just translate it completely (not even TLC/QC) was easily more than a year.
It still sucks though what happened with the original Machine Doll translation.
