Volume 6 is finally out! It won't be long until the images of some of our favorite characters are released including Zanoba, Orsted, Nanahoshi, and the lovely Aisha that you can see posted here!
Also, Mushoku Tensei thread.
To my knowledge, most of the images on the net are from the kindle version of the book, rather than scanned. If no one actually scans the images, then we won't really get anything proper until March 25th, when the kindle version releases.
Has anyone seen at least photos of illustrations anywhere?
I know it's due to his curse, but that is the most frightening man in world?
A grumpy looking pretty boy with fish eyes? Come on man.
I pictured orsted to be pic related with a red cape.
Why would he ever need armor when he has his touki that makes him naturally invulnerable to anything but emperor class attacks and higher?
He has no reason to ever wear armor at any point and he's only ever used swords to fight so I don't see how you ever came up with pikachu as a mental image.
He hasn't ever worn any masks either, so I'm assuming you just made that up in your head?
The only mask you can't count is the made to counter his curse, but it's a full helmet.
>it'll be more than 5 years before he gets to see her again
>by that point he has 2 wifes and an incoming second daughter
i don't know who had more suffering at that point rudeus for misunderstanding eris and getting ED for more than a year or Eris for coming to find her husbando was unfaitful
I always thought that he would have more rugged look. Also shorter hair. And different facial structure. Actually, I just thought of him as less bishounen, more batshit (in appearance) Gilgamesh. So... Yeah.
I'd say it was rudeus considering he never saw her for 5 years and constantly thought about how he failed her, not to mention once he learns from the diary about how it was all a misunderstanding the guilt piles up.
In her perspective, she trains, gets a letter telling her to come home and be the third wife and an apology for getting married twice.
She takes it like a man and still accepts being the third wife. Therefore, I say it'd be Rudi.
>not to mention once he learns from the diary about how it was all a misunderstanding the guilt piles up.
Which is kind of bullshit given the misunderstanding is entirely her fault.
I feel like a big mistake the images have been making is with Rudeus and Eris constantly being like the same size. I mean wasn't a big point of the sex aftermath is that Eris realized actually how much stronger and bigger than him she really was. You wouldn't know that looking at the images though.
They were about the same height at this point, and I think he was even a bit taller.
But Eris just had a lot more stamina, and was older than him. He wasn't physically smaller or anything.
You do know this is the same Eris who became a Sword Emperor whil Rudeus isn't even advanced in any of the sword styles right? He may ne strong but he is physically weaker than Eris which is why she managed ro become Rudy's husband.
she forgot how to read, math, dance, etiquette and almost all her magic training. man she IS a dumbnut, aside from that that letter was hilarious
>we don't match together
imagine rudeus reading that as his eyes loose all its ligth and he runs to the door.
No I thought Rudeus just always seemed bigger to Eris because of how adult like and responsible and stuff he always acted. I was pretty sure he was still smaller than her here. I mean she's 15 and he's not even 13 yet when they had sex. How easily she dominated him in the act kind of opened her eyes a bit.
An idiot blockhead that left his husbando to go train in the holy land of swords.
But yeah, she would have wasted her time if she went to magic university with Rudeus and not gone to sword country.
It could have all been resolved if she spoke to him about it, but Rudeus wouldn't have let her go alone and have followed her to sword country.
And THAT would have ruined Rudeus since he needs to go to magic university to meet his crew and learn more magic.
Fate is weird like that, her leaving and not telling him was the best choice in the end.
IIRC, that's exactly how she explains it on her POV when they met again, how she was scared but rudeus swiftly solved all her worries and lead her to safety up until he met Paul and then when she saw him get killed by orsted and even there she was still seeing him as a god
it wasnt up until they had sex that she realize how frail he actually was
the problem was the way she decided to leave. which for me was hilarious
>she never got to kill a dragon with rudeus or go into a labyrinth
Ah fuck. How is Japan going to fuck this series up anumewise then. Place your bets people!
Also, I forgot the manga got an English adaptation. I'm going to have to check that out now.
It is. Seven seas licensed the manga a while ago and it's dated for November (or October can't remember which). If it's like their other LN-manga licenses then the anime should be released at the same time or right after that.
>licensed the manga
Oh I see.
That said, a license in the US doesn't mean an anime in Japan. Honestly, the LN just barley reached a good point that the anime could finish a season on. So there's still more time.
>random lighrays censoring lolis
>no *insert good moment of the WN* scene
>butchering material to get into demon continent before episode 6
>Orsted getting bad seiyuu
there are a LOT of ways this can go south so fast
>CGI magic chants seiken tsukai no world break style
why not look for ways it can go full masterpiece?
There have been but lately kadokawa has been doing 11 episodes per season since it's cheaper than a full 12/two cour. There are some exceptions though like kancolle and no game no life
I still don't understand how you fools think this is going to get adapted, or rather why you would want it adapted?
Why in fuck would want a watered down, censored, effectively butchered adaptation of this series? It boggles my mind.
Why would you want a series with more than 20 fucking volumes to get compressed into a single season of advertisement anime? Why?
Why are you lot so thirsty, I understand you want more content, but Jesus Tapdancing Christ don't act like slutty whores who'll take anything they can get.
you can always
hopeit'll become a new masterpiece that will be fullfiling instead of an inminent trainwreck
Actually hold that thought. 2 volumes per 11 episode season could probably work out great, if the first season actually manages to catch people's attention, and it continues on like that.
It can actually work, the more I think about it. But.. there are still some issues..
You poor, deluded fool. How I pity you and envy you.
but the teleportation displacement was a keypoint in the story, i actually missed the times they spent trying to return to the human continent, now is rudeus caring for his waifus and daughters/sons, while doing hidden jobs for the "president"
Always pictured him like the dragon guy from Sengoku Youko
Silver hair, golden eyes, no particular equipment, wearing a simple white coat made out of some kind of fur.
Neither riding on a horse, nor riding on a carriage, just walking along.
It was a man.
Going from my impression it was at most, "A guy with a bad look in his eyes."
This man had a serious case of Sanpaku eyes.
Rather than that, what my eyes stopped on was.
At his side.
There was a single black haired young girl.
I had a feeling I had met her somewhere before, but I can't remember.
There are few people with pure black hair in this world.
Dammit I'm not really pleased with the character designs.
Orsted was less Abuto from Gintama but younger face with shorter hair and larger irises, less ruggard.
Zanoba is pretty spot on except hair is a bit longer, less bowl cut and he doesn't look like a starved ghoul. Secretly ikemen
Nanahoshi is as expected, basically Seira from GJ-Bum, so spot on
Not seen yet but Aisha is basically little maid from Maoyuu Maou Yuusha
Pursenia would be that dog girl from Outbreak Company
I didn't have a clear image of Rinia
How did you visualize them /a/?
Ah... Sengoku Youko... I haven't read that in forever. I need to catch up. Last part I was on was when dragon guy's son and his friend (girl) had just grown up and were fighting some monsters.
Sigh Orsted... my image of him looking a bit more bishie but as mean as Oga from beelzebub looks a bit broken now..
I can't really imagine him running away from Rudeus's house after playing with Lucy and Lara..
Do you guys think that we're getting new chapters in volume 7 since it has only 6 chapters?
>from Mar 1
Translator are going to have a tough time with this one.
Cliff, but longer hair in front
I contest blues are equal if not superior.
Dem red onis, and blue onis man.
Ariel......COME AT ME BRO!
How I picture sword god. Also how I image his voice( english dub) Only Thing we really know for sure is Sword God has blue hair and is "built" Just the sheer arrogance matchs
Just started reading this series last weak, I'm currently at volume thirteen,
where he just had rescued Roxy. I liked the series overall if I had to say, the only weak point was the school arc and that is mostly because I think Sylphy is the weakest of the three heroines. Nevertheless a great read, too bad I was spoiled on the turning points that shit was going to happen
I'm very content,I always imagined him as Vergil from devil may cry and turns out he looks like him but with a decade or two on hin
to be honest I thought the school arc was gonna be bullshit with terrible highschool dramma but because my expections were so low I really enjoyed it for all those connections he built which ALL WERE FORSHADOWED to be useful to him later on.
I actually liked the school art, just not to the extent of the rest of the series, but I can definitely see the importance as he made/solidified connections with a bunch of important characters and for the mast part they were fun, aside hime gang, which I simple disliked with the exception of S-hime itself.
I agree with you. It wasn't that bad.
My guess is that it's a slice-of-life school arc in a fantasy setting is the reason why not many people like it as much. That particular topic is becoming more common in other anime series so I guess they don't want it showing up here.
What is more - I'm not sure what /a/'s hive mind consensus is on this one, but I actually think that adventuring in Mushoku isn't really that interesting, even generic, and magic in particular - which is strange considering that author pushes it on us like it was the hottest shit he ever invented. For me, Mushoku is good for characters and their interactions and post-Hitogami president train. So school arc wasn't that bad, only overstayed its welcome by a fair margin.
Though I disagree with you about the adventure part, definitely he could have shortened the school arc by one volume, making it 3(?), and made a whole volume for the Quagmire itself being a broken solo adventurer, personally I thought of him being a impertinent child mage who wrecks dragons sometimes would be more interesting than a whole volume of wedding arrangements/sister enrollment with the school.
With Aisha on the cover this baby is going to sell 100k copies.
I have the volume. If someone posts a way to break Bookwalker's DRM I'll post the pictures (yes, I know I can extract them using screenshots in a very convoluted way, but I really can't be arsed to do that)
For the record, the images are:
>color spread posted back in thread
>color page with Eris crying
>Eris and Rudy eating together
>Zanoba with a Roxy statuette
>Orsted and Nana
>Eris being lewd
>Kishirika meeting Roxy
Nevermind, found a way to break it myself.
Posting them now.
Orsted looks like Dante after eating too much pizza
It's a very good read, but the first volume has a very good chance of turning you off since it basically features a toddler/small child having the same mentality of a 30+ year old lolicon NEET, which is creepy as fuck.
It gets better (and he gets better) as time goes by, though.
Also, Eris is love. Eris is life.
Yeah, thought I read shieldbro before MT.
I like MT the most, but Tate no Yuusha is fine as well. Both focus in different things , but MT has a more convoluted and detailed world building and story, while shieldbro needs to fuck some girl but he doesn't because he's a faggot.
>comparing two completely different series
Dude you have issues.
Have a Tanuki.
>Being mad for no reason
>Even hating a decent series like Shieldbro
Stop being a faggot. You don't do us MT fans any real favors by acting like this.
Very. Also, vampire loli.
An MC doesn't need to be evil to be a good character. Not sure what you're ven getting at.
>comparing two completely different series
They're both stories where a protagonist finds himself suddenly transported to a magical medieval world. MT just does that concept much better, in every way.
Shieldbro is shit and the threads were cancer as fuck. I read it in runes long before it became a fad.
Which has nothing to do with the fact that this isn't a LN thread but a MT thread so fuck off with the off topic shit.
*wanted Zanaba [check 7/10 pretty much spot on]
*Osted in neutral pose saying hello [check Nothing to really complain as he's indeed threatening middlish aged and strong looking 8/10 ]
*Osted stabbing Rudys heart out with Eris watching[nope]
*Rudy and Eris kissing ( there not going to do a sex scene to much to ask for)
[Sex scene with Eris actually drawn ah my god didn't think they would actually do this 12/10 picture]
So all in all this novel hit all the right spots with me there was no battle scenes or hand throug heart scene bet that sex scene more then made up for it so I thought it was really good everyting after is a plus
I'm reading volume thirteen, death flags everywhere and now there's a chapter called Mortal Combat, ha... Not even trying to make subtle that
Paul has 120% of dying
in short the series suffers terrible terrible characters......... I mean the other three heros. They just became mentally handicaped after a while and shield hero suffers from Sasuke sydrom which inhibits abiltiy to notice women because busy with strenght and angst
Im only one of the people you linked and my point stands.
What kind of retard asks a thread of the series they are discussing is good?
What the fuck do you expect to be told from that retarded ass question?
TTY a shit
>protagonist finds himself suddenly transported to a magical medieval world
Sure, but MT is a reincarnation WN, so fucking damn different.
While you are transported magically, you expect some way to go back to the previous world, while reincarnation is just keeping your memories and nothing else from said world.
I agree with MT being way better as a reader's experience, since I read both of them long before translations started at all, and pretty much rage myself with TnY ending as well.
I don't like the 2 series being compared and talked about in the same thread though. The comparisons is way childish and useless anyway.
If you want to compare TnY with something, do it with KnWM, that is pretty much in the same category.
You are not doing a favor to the thread by replying like that.
Instead, you could have mentioned the good things that MT has compared with other series, yet you chose to shitpost a single mention giving more importance than what it deserves.
>I agree with MT being way better as a reader's experience, since I read both of them long before translations started at all, and pretty much rage myself with TnY ending as well.
>I agree with you but you're wrong
Then why say anything?
the real twist would've been if
he would've succeeded in everything he wanted and hitogami would've fucked him up later for some stupid shit like disease
But her ear makes it look like there's big void inside her head
Fuck, finally. What took you guys so long? I've been waiting for this thread.
What have you guys been reading while waiting for MT updates? So far I've read Overlord, Danmachi, Tate no Yuusha, Re:Monster and LMS. I don't know why I enjoy these types of series so much but I do.
I've been itching for another actual harem type of story, not just all girls are interested in him, but the MC isn't a faggot with ED. Anything like MT in terms of that?
The usualy, otome burikko, Coiling Dragon and now that I got addicted for daily shit I'm reading couple fanfics... Monster-less, Reincarnation: Empire of Scales and Dont fear the reaper
>No sex, groping or sexual contact anykind besides indirect kisses
>No mutilation after brief battle, instead Rudi gets knocked out
People still want the fucking anime ruining shit godfuckingdamnit
Not read yet but appeals to me like
LMS mixed with SAO with a dash of .hack
Slowly lost interest even more when it got licensed
>Tate no Yuusha
Picked and dropped
Both Log Horzion and Sword Art Online got 50 episodes a piece there's hope.......
Still want to end the motherfuckers that think 12 episodes to advatise books in moon runes is a good idea......
Really Boring start and takes willpower to push through, demon continent arc was god damn good, magic school has its moments but the premise of Rudi's disease was cringeworthy, dragged too much, Paul dying was expected, Diary part made me hate Rudi. because of himbeing an idiot. Whole Hitogami thing was getting stale, got excited by Orsted vs Rudi round 2 and was not disappointed. The after that it just got boring and decided to halt and wait till it gets further.
Are they gonna combine volumes 7 and 8? Because volumes 7 is short as fuck.
>mfw pimp Sylphy, Rinia and Pursena in the same volume
Gonna have to reread book 7 now.......One of Rudus wet nurse/baby sitters was in his party at the time.....with her husband? Wouldn't suprise me as those are all characters menatione here and there as this series is good at doing those full circle events
It calls the archer girl a "mysterious heroine" who slightly resembles "her" who suddenly appears before Rudy.
So basically she's there to remind Rudy of Eris and his broken dick.
Maybe new story with Rudeus as Quamire, the First guy the leader of some guild, the first girl maybe the saint ranked swordman, and the bowman girl the ex-adventurer that give milk of one of the rudeus child
I was rereading Orsted's first meeting with the gang at the end of volume 6 and his words make a lot more sense once you know who he is and what he's been through.
Nanahoshi's actions still don't make too much sense, though.
Why is he called dragon god, or how is his race different from regular humans? It's already been stated that other people can use their "innate" magic such as gravity magic. There's no clear difference from white haired Joe that I could see atleast, maybe their race was just magically advanced humanity in another continent?
Also the Dice world is hoax, I bet the world is just 3-4 times larger than earth and the other worlds are continents fucked over by god class magic. The void acts as catalyst for somesort mass teleportation. No idea why dragon(race?) is pissed at hitogami
Osted doesn't really bother to hold back from saying what seems like cryptic things like when Pegisus mentions he acted like he knows everything which Osted just replies "no you taught me many things" Not really careing if in this loop those thins were indeed taught to him
I pictured him something like this, se that's not that far.
Just. A little bit too obvious that he is strong as fuck.
I think he has started to appreciate other people as he has been getting slow therapy in the form of Lucy.
Heck he spent thousands of years "alone" and suddenly cute quarter elf is willing to play with him. Heck if he fails in that loop he's going to be more depressed than ever before.c
if you really want to be spoil then
Zanoba designs a prostetic magic hand with help of cliff and the magic circles on the doll found in rudeus house, then future rudeus comes, explains some shit to present rudeus about how he mastered every single magic including regeneration for the sole purpose to kill hitogami but failsand thenhe battles Orsted and he in return for rudeus help he heals his hand
MT's protag already has three wives and four children and has to deal with protecting his family and raising his childs.
As far as I know shieldbro still hasn't even fucked anyone.
Yes with this it's now complete......... Know this isn't the thread for it, but requesting all these people in a bar patting Osteds back in a way that says we know those feels...... Know theres one for Homera, Yuki and HOUOUIN KYOUMA!!! In black and white
Orsted is basically the typical LN MC
>Most powerful fuck in the world
>strongest member of the ancient and legendary DRAGON RACE
>all about vengeance
>curse that really isn't much of a flaw
>has a power unknown to most people in the world (his time-hopping).
guys like that are usually the gary-stu MC, love interest, or rival of many other stories. kinda funny he's put into the mentor role.
He's missing the most important trait for a fantasy protag though, some sort of relation to a Japanese person.
Like I've read a novel where a protag's hair, who has nothing to do with Japan, turns from brown to black for literally no reason in-story.
Or in another one, the protag's mentor was Japanese.
Orsted just isn't cut out to be a protag.
>mfw that journal part
Just as I was trying to quit smoking, so fucking great.
Since reading some of these reincarnation and second life series I always question what would happen if some of them ended in tragedy.
Like have it so that the MC dies and resolves to make his new life better than his original one and it ends up being shit anyway.
MT's diary chapters are like that (though its not the actual ending) and it's one of the more famous parts of the series (if I were to talk to him I'd ask which is worse, the diary future or the previous life?).
Rudy have made it clear that he don't want to go back, so tragedy for him is if he did. That's actually how I expect MT to end: rather than applying the life lessons to not be a NEET after returning, he would spend rest of his life desperately and hopelessly looking for a way back to his waifus.
wonder what illustrations well get next time......they have been steadily improving over volumes
Chapter 1: Quagmire The Adventurer -
Rudus taking off his shirt to revel armstrong abs
Chapter 2: Recommendation Letter
Elf bitch not getting it on with 3 dudes but instead just platonicly sleeping next to Rudus
Chapter 3: Entrance Examination
Rudus destorying the rock wall behind Fitts
Chapter 4: First Day of School - First Part
hopefully Rina and Purssomthing and cliff in class
Chapter 5: First Day of School - Second Part
Rudus catching underwhere with question mark above his head
Chapter 6: Fitts Senpai
Theres not a whole lot that happens in that volume except meeting new people
