At current translated chapters Sophia should be about 12. Then again if I remember right this world has slightly longer years than earth years so she'd be physically about 13 to 14 or so? Trying to remember how long the years were said to be.
Can't wait for the Sophia vs Kyouya fight, will be nice to see it from Shiro's point of view.
>>137462333 The human reincarnated characters were definitely not going to school at five years old. Since if I remember right it was a year after they started attending that the fight with Natsume happened which means they started around 11 to 12 years old or so.
I want you to consider the fact that Sophia never says anything about the mindcontrol and the sex during her chapters and simply called it "magic lessons," now I want you to remember that she also said she began to teach "magic" to one of the teachers.
Oh for people that are interested Kumo Desu Ga has continued to hold the number 1 spot on most popular story on Narou for the last 12 months. Think it's held the spot for a few months now at this point.
>>137463680 Too bad the author can't describe character appearance well. We only know that ariel looks like little kid, sophia is young beauty, katia has red hair, and other unknown description. The most detailed character description is shiro with extremely beautiful face with three way braided hair, use white robe and everything about her is white. Even monsters have better description than most of character
>>137464221 Baba Okina once said the readers should make their own image of the characters. And well... since we are from Shiros pov most of time and she really doesn't care at all, we don't get lots of details on how they look at all.
>>137463543 The story got everything it needs to be popular with a wide range of people. A lovely eccentric MC, a survival action comedy right from the start to get emotionally attached to the MC, a well made plot with lots of stuff going on, not getting any boring at all... and at last, a fucking explanation to almost everything other novels just explain with "lol its fantasy yo"
>>137465165 Thats bullshit. Its male demographic after all. Just no harem this time The only problem is the long time it needs to get into a scenario you could actually use for some fanservice. Maybe pulling the human-vs-demon war a little more at the beginning would be wise for an anime adaption.
>>137465898 I once read a review on bakaupdates saying that you can hardly compare the dungeon crawling with all the things happening after the apotheosis, as if there are 2 totally different novels, just being connected because its the same story. You could even call it a prologue (like in vinland saga)
>>137474543 I've been following the "webnovel" and it's pretty good yeah. One of those MC gets sucked into a fantasy world that is identical to the game he was playing as his game character which is the angel girl on the cover with black wings. Blue haired girl there on the cover is the npc that was was left in charge of the guild base. She's actually a villain that was brainwashing the main character to have the memories and personality of his game character.
>>137474543 Good enough, especially the part where she and the maou were both aiming to defeat the summoned hero as soon as he started his journey and went out of the city. They started fighting each other in front of him and gave him and his party members a trauma.
>>137474801 Which looks to be bullshit since the guy had a LN deal already lined up. A new author and webnovel doesn't get a LN release within a few months of posting the story up on the web. Even Kumo Desu Ga which was ridiculously popular took half a year and wild last boss wasn't ridiculously popular outside of the month it started.
>>137474890 That's what I'm assuming. He had the LN already lined up before he started and he started posting the drafts or first version of the story on ncode while waiting for the publishing and stuff to happen. The story isn't popular enough otherwise on ncode to have already gotten a LN out in 4 months since the story was posted.
>>137475452 She's given them a book about getting Heresy Nullity to limit the damage their Ruler titles are already doing to them. She's also given them a book which tells them the truth about what's going on with the world and giving them the choice of if they want to help her or not.
>>137476534 It's a decent amount of actual good ones there you know. "My disciple died yet again" is absolutely hilarious. Female MC > keeps dying > keeps reincatnating ( not necessarily human or female giggity giggity giggity) > same master keeps about finding her > kidnapped her as a baby from her crib
>>137476286 I was hoping he's gonna end up going to Sophia's school too either as a new student or her manservant. Then again it's probly be some SOL between the 2 kids while training their heresy resists before the war breaks out in a month or two.
>cultivation >muh cultivation >pillar of martial arts >muh cultivating cultivation of cultivator Maybe it's because neither english nor chinese is my first language but every time I see that word I just can't force myself read shit.
>>137477026 I find it more interesting sometimes to watch a rise in power story instead of instant op orteeee story for no apparent reason. While the premise is being over used. It's still not as trashy as Japanese Power wanking
>>137476534 Some of them are pretty good. ISSTH is my current personal favorite.
Think of the reclusive old master/sage that doesn't make on games/stories. The ones who are super powerful but does not make any sense when they talk or act and the main characters of the story are usually stuck doing some dumb task or finding some irrelevant shit to curry their favor to get some advice/help/magic item/potion?
Well the main character of ISSTH is one of those starting from like the third volume.
>>137477629 There's that guy who got turned to a noble girl after reincarnating and grows some feeling for her(his) childhoodfriend(former classmate). Kumo has a thing for oji-sans but her hikki neet personalty makes it hard to converse properly with others.
>>137474801 >"Those are all published stories by pro’s. They’re on a different level to me. If my story gets translated amongst theirs, it’ll make the bad points of my story seem even worse, so please spare me. It’ll be like a battle between Vegeta and Goku and Bills and Brolli, and then suddenly throwing Yamcha into the mix. Anyway, I’d like to hold back on the English translation. My level is overwhelmingly too low to be exposed to people overseas." >In reality already has an LN deal.
>>137477298 I've been liking The King's Avatar a little bit more than I Shall Seal The Heavens, but those are my two favorites at the moment. Kumo Desu Ga, Nani Ka? is probably somewhere around 3rd to 5th for me.
>>137487659 She's innocent. Oh goddess is actually the bad guy. MC doesn't know but she's actually a lot weaker than she originally supposed to be. Original version was actually a lot more stronger than a mere level 1000 according to the Demon Lord. Mc was only put in the body so he can keep the original sealed up.( its his only purpose for even being there apparently. He was not happy about that. Expressly not after the fact that he's fusing with her and getting her memories) Something something goddess scenario something something the worlds of Puppets.
And the demon lord actually is a chill guy .......who might be in love with MC ( original more powerful version)
Oh and they traumatize the new summon hero by fighting in front of him after they went and go try to kill him immediately after he left the country. Can you just imagine as a hero just stepping out of the first village and the last boss and the wild back boss came after you?
>>137488106 If you were to restart life it's not like you're just going to gain the mental maturity of an adult. It's like you froze and didn't go anywhere. You'll be more less still a "kid at heart" kind of situation
>>137494193 I don't think Shiro has transforming capabilities anon. If she did she could hide her eyes other than closing them and developing her special eye abilities to let her see. I also can't see her doing shit with D period. Shiro is still on the "if I get a chance, I'll absolutely kill her" idea. She doesn't like that she's D's subordinate.
>>137494642 They are making a leap here anon. Just because she's shown she can go from spider to human forms doesn't mean she can transform freely. Also most of those "clones" started out as her babies she had laid before becoming a god. Most of the abilities Shiro has are derived from the ones she had when she was in the system. Her clone skill is based on her spawning abilitiy she had which let her lay tons of eggs all over the place. She just skips the egg part and goes directly to new spider now.
>>137490759 I really like how Shiro-chan fully accept her role as a mother of vampire-chan, she really has grown alot. Still is weird as fuck that she is acting as the mother of one of her classmates though
>>137503824 Try warlock of the Magus world. Although it's Chinese it's not a xianxia it's actually based on D&D. And the MC is literally the best we just says fuck you to clasic tropes. He's cold calculating and extremely pragmatic. Everything about him basically emanates evil last boss,villian, Aizen etc.
In a situation where a young girl is being chased by evil men who want to kill her not only does he not help her, he told her to fuck off and not bring him trouble. And then when she didn't listen he killed the pursuers then he proceeded to kill her and burn her body so there's no witnesses. He was pissed off at you have to waste a perfectly good campground because someone shitty ingrate bothered him. Plus he has no problem having one night stands with women and then leaving the next day.
He gets into so little amount of problems with other people it's amazing.
Synopsis What happens when a scientist from a futuristic world reincarnates in a World of Magic and Knights? An awesome MC is what happens! A scientist’s goal is to explore the secrets of the universe, and this is exactly what Leylin sets out to do when he is reincarnated. Dark, cold and calculating, he makes use of all his resources as he sets off on his adventures to meet his goal. Face? Who needs that… Hmmm… that guy seems too powerful for me to take on now… I better keep a low profile for now. You want me to help you? Sure… but what benefit can I get out of it? Nothing? Bye. Hmmm… that guy looks like he might cause me problems in the future. Should I let him off for now and let him grow into someone that can threaten me….. Nahhh... kill
>>137504507 Chinese MCs seem to have a stick up their ass all the time. I don't know if its a culture thing or what but there's seething anger in every WN I read even the ones with chill MCs turn them into genocide dragon riders choking down spirit meth soon enough. Someone reccommeded The Legend of Sun Knight for a non-evil chinese MC but he's even worse than most chinese MCs because he's just a secret dick instead of a outward dick. I suppose him killing less people is consolation. >>137477136 Reading cultivation novels basically its like gathering mana. Usually they use it to then act better than everyone else and build purple rainbow houses in the sky while they fly around killing each other with magic beams and shit.
>>137466174 I see how someone could think that before reading the recent translations. The only difference is Shiro has to play spy instead of actually fighting because all her enemies are too strong for her to openly oppose and everyone else is not worth killing, in fact she only gains if they grow. Cept the fucking elves. I don't even remember why she hates potty anymore and I don't care.
>>137505369 What? Potimas isn't strong, he just has the benefit of being hooked up to the system and the system is too damn weak to stay up if he dies. If it wasn't for that Shiro would have massacred the elves and him years ago.
She hates him because of what he did to Oka and what he continues to do. He's threatening the entire world and as a result the few people Shiro actually cares about like Oka, Ariel and Sophia.
>>137504916 he's too busy being an edgy literal mad scientist misunderstood genius character The use of exclamation points! turned me off. If I wanted some evil for the sake of evil power fantasy shit with exclamation points! I'd read Re:Hamster again. >>137505558 I don't see it as a prologue so much as a different 'stage'. Throughout the series kumo was always getting to new stages and growing. >>137505582 >Kumoko is a tsundere spider god Isn't it weird she finally got a name after all these chapters and no one uses it? As for tsundere, I think she's a great one because the way she's written you don't know where the line between her eating them or sacrificing part of her soul to save them is(like oka recently). I figure she's being 'nicer' lately as a god since she saw how D is and wanted to find a way to distance her identity from hers.
>>137505733 >What? Potimas isn't strong, He himself is actually probably very strong. Naruto Tina ruler school you must actually have the soul power to handle it so likely his stats are decently high maybe vampire girl and oni level high or higher (spider queen level?)r. And let's not forget the fact that he's probably a magician that can do spells outside the system too
>>137506190 >he's probably a magician that can do spells outside the system too If the elves have a robot area powered by MA shit like the factory Kumo found I think its fair to say he's at least just short of apotheosis. Kumo was probably only able to break through because of the D in her. As for spells outside the system, that should be admin only but that explains why he can mess with kumo's clones with that barrier. He's at the very least not going down without fucking the world and using it as a bomb or something.
>>137506343 Even D doesn't know how Shiro succeeded at becoming a God using the method she did. We know from Kuro and Ariel's conversation that it sounds like Potimas has been trying to become a God for a long time but always failed.
I wonder if he'd break if he learned Shiro managed it in a year.
>>137506436 I forgot about those parts. I figure Shiro will figure it out eventually when they get around to explaining the MA thing. I figure it has something to do with that (n=w%i) skill which looks like nai wai to me but the author probably doesn't know that it looks similar to nai wai in eggo right? >>137506631 Thats just wrong. Sociopaths have feelings they just don't act on them the same way other people do.
>>137506198 We're in an impossible situation here, as these terms are used to describe characteristics of a human in a human society. It was never meant to be used for an ex-spider, now humanoid goddess with an human intellect in a fantasy environment. But if we sum it down to the characteristics shown in the novel, then, by having a mind to reflect her own actions, she's a genuine sociopath.
>>137506994 isn't she literally saving the world though. Just about the worst thing she said was 'scum should just die, you can't save everyone' and she's pretty much right. With how many she's saved and how many she's killed its really hard to give a negative rating when she's just trying to survive
>>137507314 Sociopathy isnt necessarily a negative thing. Its just that most sociopaths are pretty selfish only acting for their own benefit. But if they feel like, they save people on a whim. Since being nice to people tends to getting stuff in return, thats not do rare.
Not every sociopath will break your knee, snatch your money and run off if there are easier ways to get what they want without getting people mad at them
>>137507705 If shiro is a sociopath why'd she raise vampgirl? Don't mention the drunken baby eating antics. She cares about her like a daugther, that much is clear. She put serious thought on who to consult for advice.
>>137508326 No it's not. She's fighting for herself because she doesn't want D to fucking get rid of her because she can't go against D yet or possibly ever. If it wasn't for D she would have abandoned the world and everyone in it after she became a god.
>>137508075 Looks like you mix up psychopathy here. A sociopath is fully capable of getting emotionally attached to someone and care for them... But well, it usually ends up very tsundere-like in a rough but sufficient way
>>137508404 explains the babyflesh eating >>137508398 they don't really mention much about what she would do if she could abandon the world. I'd like to think she'd at the very least take Ariel with her out of a sense of responsibility and so she could employ her as her cook.
>that one series that doesn't get updates because the translator started eight more projects that aren't updating either >that one series that gets updates rarely and the translator starts a new translation for a series you don't give two shits about >that cliffhanger chapter that you read eight months ago that has no indication of updating again ever whats her name /a/?
>>137508486 After revealing the taboo and the truth about her own origin she was more attached to that world than earth. Then after saving Sophie on a whim and spending some time with Ariel, she's in a state of not wanting to abandone them anymore. Neither her "friends" nor the world. But the rest can go to hell anytime~
>>137508749 Who knows? My reading list is a fickle thing. I don't really pay attention to individual series anymore. I just add lots of stories and hope enough of them update at a decent pace that I have stuff to read everyday.
>>137508749 >that one series that doesn't get updates because the translator started eight more projects that aren't updating either Lazy Dungeon Master >that cliffhanger chapter that you read eight months ago that has no indication of updating again ever A Record of a Mortals Journey to Immortality just got picked back up today actually. That cliffhanger only lasted 2 months.
>>137508848 She still wants to abandon the world since even if they save it, it's still pretty much fucked. She's just working out a way to save everyone she cares about too.
I love when she realizes that she fucked up a ton in training vampire girl since vampire girl's ridiculous strength makes her more likely to die because of Shiro's plan whatever that is. If she had left her weak and with few skills, she'd have a much better chance of survival.
>>137508920 Yeah I'm like you. I got into LNs thanks to overlord and I've been jumping from ship to ship like a plague rat ever since. It hurts to see some go though, like Kanstoppu! because they are so fucking charming and the story is developing in an interesting way.
>>137509111 2+ chapters a weak is nothing to snark at, but it's the only thing they're translating that I care about; so naturally I'm going to feel like an insufficiently spoiled child about it. >>137509051 >Kanstoppu! I only recently managed to forget about that,
>>137508151 She first approached the vampire girl because she was being tsundere trying not to save people, when the subject of the war appeared she starts to truly worry about the vampire girl well being and then when the elves attacked she decided to take the vampire girl under her care. I wouldn't call her a sociopath, she's just a pragmatic, cruel tsundere.
>>137508075 >>137508326 >If shiro is a sociopath why'd she raise vampgirl? Sociopaths can care about their children, and people they know. They just hold little regard for the life of anyone else.
>>137508486 >they don't really mention much about what she would do if she could abandon the world. She said she'd go to earth, laze about and eat. Basically what she's been doing for a while now, but safer.
But D said to help Ariel.
>>137509245 It might not be such a trivial thing to just create a new world? Even for a high god like D.
>>137509294 She's a sociopath. She formed a connection with the first person she's found that she had a previous connection to (even if she doesn't quite remember them) But that's not outside of a sociopath's capabilities.
You can call her a tsundere, but acknowledge that her "tsun" involves killing off millions of people without a real care.
>>137509021 Lol yeah shiro went like, whoops, thats contraproductive some how... uh lets deal with that later lalala
Shiro's spending way too much effort into saving this world if its just to prevent it from collapsing. She's probably way more attached than she thinks. Like in, as she's able to travel between the worlds freely, she always gets back pretty quickly without a real need to do so.
In the end, she's a big selfdelusional tsundere after all ;)
>>137509416 >but acknowledge that her "tsun" involves killing off millions of people without a real care. >I-it's not like I wanted to genocide your race or anything! This is a whole different level isn't it?
>>137509416 Hah someone else is holding up the sociopath flag, nice. Well, it seems like people either mix that up with psychopathy or have a really evil and negative idea of sociopathy in general, not willing to stigmata a lovely protagonist with it
Guys, you would be surprised how many sociopaths are actually out there (rl) :p
>>137508295 It wasn't edge. It was legitimate pragmatism The girl was an idiot who thought she could get away with lying to him. And he wasn't too happy around that time either seeing as how he was poisoned from previous engagement with a fairy. But what pissed him off most was the fact that he had to leave his perfectly built campground.
Basically he didn't go to White Knight route. He then said that if this was some kind of fairy tale he might have saved her but he's not an idiot and she's an ingrate so fuck her.
And he made sure that no witnesses saw that he was there
>>137509870 its in goddamn japanese with the moon letters anon unless baba yaga intended it from the start and its an nth level mindfuck like the spider gave D the idea in the past to attract attention to the classroom so the spider could gain hiro's memories and soul and digievolve into a god using time fuckery and the proof is the skill everyone got that echoed through time... unless thats true >>137510004 >:p go tip your fedora somewhere else scum
>>137510279 >[Scanning in process! Target’s bloodflow is rapidly increasing. Unusual brainwave activity detected. Conclusion: Lie – 93.3%]
>Looking at the conclusion of the A.I. Chip, Leylin shook his head.
>“Why don’t you leave!”
>“What?” The young lady was obviously shocked, >“You don’t fancy me? I have a lot of prized possessions in my family, you can have anything you like……”
>"Could it be that you have read too many tales about knights in shining armour?” Leylin interrupted her speech.
>“In a dense forest, an adventurer chanced upon a princess who was fleeing, and even helped her seek revenge. After overcoming a series of adversities. They triumphed over their enemies. The adventurer obtained the treasures, the love and the admiration of the princess. From then on, they lived happily ever after!”
>Leylin recited it in a poetic, bard-like manner.
>“It’s merely an empty illusory, full of false promise. At most, I’ll obtain your body and flesh then I have to help you seek revenge against a Viscount who has the backing of a huge faction. Do I look like an idiot to you?”
>“But……”The young lady was obviously still struggling.
>“Get lost!” Leylin bellowed.
>The young lady got up helplessly. A malicious and poisonous gaze flashed in her eyes, as she prepared to leave.
>“Wait!” After the young lady walked for several steps, Leylin’s voice travelled over.
>The young lady, looking gleeful, turned around.
>* Xiu! * An arrow bore through the beautiful face of the young lady, and pinned her to the tree right behind her.
>"Actually I could have let you go, but I saw a malicious and raging intent in your eyes!” Leylin gradually sighed. “To a person who had always protected and followed you, you did not even bother to bury his corpse before leaving. From this it can be seen that you are a brazen ingrate.”
He's not scum and he's not stupid. And if he wanted to have sex he could do so easily.
>>137510532 >he should just hole up in some mountain like a hermit if he doesn't want to get bothered by anyone every single chinese MC does that they seal the cave and do drugs all day but inevitably they need more drugs or secret scrolls so they leave or get attacked because of the people they fucked with while getting the drugs/secret scrolls
>>137510567 >“Moreover, to get your revenge, you contemplated some sort of reprisal against me. You will definitely announce this matter today to everyone. Although I am not afraid of trouble, I detest such inconveniences very much……”
>"With these many reasons, why would I still let you go?”
>Leylin pulled out the arrow and heaped the corpse of the young lady, who died with a grievance, together with the others.
>From his bag he withdrew a yellow coloured potion, and poured it on the wound of a corpse. * Sssii! * Soon, the corpse putrefied into a puddle of yellow viscous liquid.
>Leylin did the same thing for the rest of the corpses, destroying them all completely.
>Moments later, the area surrounding the camp, had only a puddle of yellow water left. The large guy, the young lady and the pursuing soldiers, all of them, had disappeared with nary a trace.
>These potions that could putrefy corpses, and the paralysis powder- all were Leylin’s inventions, done when he was bored. Although they do not have much effect against a Magus, or even an acolyte, it was still extremely effective against normal humans.
>“Right now, the most important thing still is to get enough ingredients to treat my wounds. Anything else would just be an inconvenience!”
>Leylin sighed, “What a waste of a newly erected campground.”
>Leylin packed his things once more, and erased any sign of his existence, before disappearing into the woods.
>>137510567 >gives speech to bishoujo >doesn't just kick her out >somehow figures out she murdered someone from a look and kills her then chastises her corpse I'm glad I have another reason not to read this
>>137510755 She didn't pay attention at all to her servant that just died protecting her. And then she had her stupid vendetta on her head. And his a.i chip told him that she was lying 100% about her situation.
And since everyone else is dead best option is to get rid of the last person who is the more likely to cause you problems and leave absolutely no witnesses.
Oh and she was actually running away from the family so she was the bad guy in that situation. Context my friend
>>137510967 still doesn't give him the right to be all high and mighty about it then acid the corpses I don't know why you would bother defending someone you would openly admit is an asshole Just what was the point of him encountering her at all? So he could give her a speech about how she's just as shitty as him and doesn't deserve a hero?
>>137511266 WN translation makes it out more like theres a useless human part with eyes growing out of the spiders head which also has eyes. I think she gets the human part pierced once and thinks its pretty useless. Of course she later uses it to kung fu some robots but who the fuck cares about that
>>137511217 Not him but he's not an asshole. And the girl totally had it coming anyway. He's not a high and mighty arrogant prick. But he's just not being stupid and getting rid of problems before they come back and buy them in the ass
>>137511528 some people enjoy their anger I guess >>137511576 >only one actual romantic interest - Sento >Latifa isn't actually in the running the difference between romance and hayram is the number of heroines then?

>>137511756 >the difference between romance and hayram is the number of heroines then? Yes? By definition, a harem requires at least three heroines who are actually running for the bowl. Two is a love triangle and one is a just a regular romance.
>>137511982 good point, I don't know what I was thinking >>137512032 whats wrong with putin? Nationalism was all the rage just seventy years ago in america after all. If you think any other world leaders have clean hands I'd like you to point to them. >>137512113 >It's complete It better fucking not be. You don't have a free for all occurring right outside the castle with three demon lords going all out and just fucking cut away from that. Then again it does fit with the overall tone of the story, I'm just not happy is all. Pride best girl
>>137512175 Re:Hamster is actually far more entertaining than Re:Monster but its not originally japanese so you might not be able to stomach it. Theres a wonderful insanity about it, kinda like Rance games. A hamster demon lord cumming on plants to make them awaken into loli generals got to me.
>>137512197 >It better fucking not be. It is. >You don't have a free for all occurring right outside the castle with three demon lords going all out and just fucking cut away from that. That got resolved right before the cut away, Leigie shut them all right the fuck down. Go read it again.

>>137512585 Yes he said he would like to come back to it eventually, and he explicitly didn't tie up a few lose ends. But he "finished" the webnovel. He's been working on the light novel adaption and when that gets to the point the webnovel was at he's going to work on a completely new story.
>>137512879 I'm sure scalia is proud to have died by God-Emperor Obama's divine hand. >>137512961 Reading more and more of the series I really have begun to appreciate the betaness of MCs for once. Not the annoying type, but at least the ones that are naive and immature. Its cute, I guess. Once you have a guy who does it like its no big deal doesn't it feel like a nukige or something? Its a strange feeling, like some invisible barrier was destroyed. >>137513009 Do you feel complete destroying my hopes and dreams anon? Sleep tight legie
>>137512236 That was a game world fantasy story. MC's game character was an old man mage focused on summoning magic. He had extra money in his game account that was about to expire so for fun he bought a character edit item and turned his character into a loli which perfectly fit his tastes, lolicon that he was. After messing around with it, he started feeling sleepy and passed out. Next thing he knew he was in the game world but 30 years had passed since the time of his character and his character along with his friends are all considered these legendary mages that disappeared.
He poses as his own mage's apprentice and gets the task to try to look for the other mage friends that are out there somewhere.
It's basically implied that all the mages had crazy fetishes like he was a lolicon, the necromancer was a necrophiliac, etc.
I've heard the story get complaints that despite the pretty good start, pretty much nothing ever happens.
>>137513319 Well Mira is supposed to be on some super important quest to find the other mages because the country her and her friends founded is in trouble but apparently even at the later chapters she still hasn't even found the damn necromancer.
>>137513183 >He poses as his own mage's apprentice and gets the task to try to look for the other mage friends that are out there somewhere. Sounds like ovalload >pretty much nothing ever happens and some people like it that way Overlord got really good at ramping the story up >>137513372 looks similar to atelier series, good art that doesn't get copied much >>137513435 I think he's implying that thugs are here i.e internet toughguys
>>137513464 The problem was the story made it sound like it was super important to find the other mages but then fucking nothing ever happened with it. If it was just a story about Mira being an adorable overpowered loli summoner traveling around and her adventures, I wouldn't be complaining.
>>137513551 You can skip all the side stories you'll just miss out on lots of cool shit that develops the story. The side stories made me feel like the story was bigger than just kumo spidering in a corner. >>137513613 I honor your bravery
>>137513733 >Somehow, it's not that hard to write. >It somehow ended up overshadowing another project of mine, and I've started posting daily chapters on RRL two weeks ago. >I just decided to not really bother with trying to tell a TOO serious story, and somehow went and made my MC a little psychotic, and thrown in innuendo here and there, in both directions. Godspeed anon, godspeed >>137513769 I think you could get by without them. Most of them are very spoilery anyways. It feels like they went from the farthest part of the series until the final battle then flowed into the present. If thats proof of some time travel shit the author puts in I'll be mad. She already has shiro using those time slowing watches and shit. Fucking time travel.
>>137513610 >>137513613 Godamnit. I kept skipping the goblin one, went back to read it and I really don't care about him going mad. I guess I'm just being a faggot and can't get myself to care about some of the characters.
>>137513934 They aren't spoilery at all. Fuck everyone was sure when it first showed up that Kumo was going to be the Demon King. Then it was revealed in later chapters who the Demon King was and that Kumo was actually Shiro. The author has done an amazing job integrating multiple character timelines into one story.
>>137513934 >I think you could get by without them. All of the most recent chapters have been Shiraori's reactions to the sidestories. And those chapters contain almost no details from the sidestories.
That will be absolute hell to read without reading the sidestories first. Beyond that, Shiraori's reactions are in chronological order, while the side-stories are not; so reading them as necessary would be a pain in the ass (if even possible).
>>137514069 I'm kind of annoyed that people title the S chapters side story, when it stands for Shun or Shurein like all the letter chapters stand for the character whose viewpoint they follow. K for Katia, J for Julius, B for Balto, etc.
Which reminds me whenever we get back to the "present" at the end of the elf battle, I hope we get a Katia chapter since Shun is out for the count because of Taboo install.
>>137514245 >Sophia and Kyouka catching up with Katia That has to happen The teasing will be glourious I wonder how Shou is going to deal with the whole "Hi I killed your brother" thing. Hopefully she mentions she saved him as a child in order to hunt him down later for hilarities sake.
>>137514385 Well don't because everyone has their own title when its their point of view in a alternate chapter. Or if it's one of those ones with multiple point of view it lt doesn't even the title like the war or the elf battle
>>137514359 I think Sophia and Kyouya at this point have more things to worry about than this group of reject reincarnations. Kyouya was talking to them before Shiro showed up but now that Shiro is there it's probably time for the real show to begin.
I just want a Katia viewpoint to get her thoughts about Wakaba Hiiro showing up and being alive after all and hopefully her thoughts of Shiro terrifying the hell out of her, she was afraid of the spiders after all.
>>137514468 I wish someone explained that Oni v Oni name earlier. New translator is based >>137514489 Katia has some form of heresy nullity now right? I think shiro's eye is still a normal skill, its only her webs that got leveled significantly in god form. >>137514520 That arc was fun as fuck too bad they had to have the hero arc inbetween the real fun with the MC. If they just labeled those chapters a side story I think a lot of people would have been saved some grief, even if they do eventually matter in the MCbowl. >>137514583 That whole Demon King/Shiro mystery was something no one could have figured out without the story advancing. Kind of lame when the Demon King shows up and she's all mental and you don't even get to see her personality before she gets corrupted.
>>137514663 >Kind of lame when the Demon King shows up and she's all mental and you don't even get to see her personality before she gets corrupted. That makes the [Body In Charge]/[Demon King] character easier to swallow. Saying there's mind-fuckery and destruction of self is one thing, but showing it extremely squicky.
>>137514663 No her eyes are all developed by her clones. Did you miss the chapter recently where she mentioned all the effects her eyes can now nullify any attack she can see. She's been having her clones work on developing the eyes the most of any of her skills, the dream of having 10 different eye skills is still alive and well for Shiro.
>>137514793 Julius was fighting Blow and Blow wouldn't retreat so he ended up dying it's hinted that Blow might have had a crush on Shiro which puts another twist on his refusal to retreat since Shiro was watching .
Shiro showed up immediately after and opened her eyes. Actually amusingly enough it seems like Julius recognized her despite only having met her spider version because it was mentioned that Julius started acting tense and frantic when he saw her.
>>137514773 I have to agree. What little we knew made me pretty uncomfortable. That part with her talking with the dragons and not knowing who she was anymore being the first time I thought kumo was scary. Isn't it strange that she can mass murder but a little corruption is far worse? >>137514859 I think Julius's friend gave shou the scarf. I wonder if Kumo will tell him about the origin of it, it might be a nice sort or tie-in to the early parts of the story. >>137514898 Maybe she saves his soul like blademaster guy because she realizes at this point a hero or two isn't going to replenish the world anyways
>>137515007 I got him mixed up with the guilty crown MC >>137514986 >She's just a big softie. That is going to kill millions. >>137515008 >good >happen to shiro She stated in the christmas story that just being alive was enough for her. Any day where she's not dead is good then. Even when she's murdering.
>>137515083 >mistaken for a child prostitute of all the things that could happen in your loli isekai novel >sperm demon weaker form of semen demon, whereas semen demons command countless sperm a sperm demon commands only one sperm
Anyone reading Katahane no Riku? New translated series. I'm only a few chapters in but it has a nice twist to the whole reincarnated in a game world type story.
Basically because she was reborn with the memories of this world of being a game, she was negligent and careless and as a result unlike in the game story where her brother saved her from dying at an early age, her brother let her apparently die though she managed to survive barely. Afterwards she cursed her past life memories that got her into this situation and a shinigami showed up and offered to take the parasite soul that was attached to her own soul in exchange for a wish. She agreed and wished for a place for herself so that she could get revenge on her family.
You know, with all the reincarnated into game bs stories, I'm surprised there isn't more that focused on the crafter guys. In every mmo there's always a group of guys who just devote themselves to the crafting system.
Legendary Moonlight Sculptor kind of did it, and it was good for a while, but got boring.
>>137515254 >Strictly worse than A Certain Middle-Aged Man's VRMMO Activity Log
>>137515200 Beyond that, The King's Avatar *involves* crafting. It's not about crafting, and it doesn't involve much, but it is a central plot element. Give it a read if you get the chance, it's extremely good. /shill
>>137505157 Chinese are the most materialistic people on earth. Being as such their thoughts tend to lean more towards results and cause than muh feels and stupid shit like that.
Something is being a fag? Can you kill it without repercussions? Kill it and take its stuff. Better to crush a pebble now rather than stumble over a pebble later when you're doing something important.
At least they're not like the two faced moralfag cunts who are like:
>b-but if you kill them then you're as bad as them!!!!!! >okay I'll let you be don't do that again *bad guy goes and calls in more bad guys >okay I'll let you be don't do that aga *bad guy holds grudges and plots some revenge thing later* >okay I'll let you be don't do that ag - *bad guy goes to some other place to rob from people instead* >okay I'll let your sects kids and women go - *some hot blooded piece of shit grows up but is too pussy to go against you and takes revenge against people you're on friendly terms with instead*
Kenshiro may be called a moralfag but at least he makes sure that whoever fucks with him explodes in to bits of gore. Xianxia/Wuxia worlds generally aren't like the wishful thinking fantasy huglands like in the jap novels, you meet the most niggerish characters out there and you bet they'll fucking stab your back with AIDS coated needle or some shit.
>>137515649 The fact that a few hundred thousand chinks voted for something isn't that impressive when you consider how fucking many chinks there are and how book censorship in China makes sure most chinks have shit taste.
>>137516072 No anon, you're the one lacking in reading comprehension. >How the fuck would chink book censorship affect fantasy webnovels at all especially the xianxia or wuxia types? I never said they did. I said that chinks don't have good taste because book censorship prevents them from reading any actually good books and so they consider even ridiculously shitty edgy web novels as 10/10 literary masterpieces because they don't have much else to build their taste on.
This is one of my favorite. Almost caught up with the WN
Girl gets transported to alternative world, learns magic, tries to take it easy but the world won't let her.
No levels or stats or dumbed down RPG shit. Not much fighting either. Very much talking etc, very much politics and some drama. Most episodes involves her doing stuff and (usually via undehanded means) unveiling other peoples wrongdoings before she can shit on them in public followed by the king BTFOing them. It's very satisfying to read. Translation pace is slow however.
