It's finished, but there is a ton of story to tell and even more to illustrate. Hopefully the manga editors will only do the first few story arcs.

Everything else will just make you mad.

Can any ln reader say which girl wins in the end so I know if I should drop the series or keep going?
>>
>>152474731
Well there should be an answer in vol 16. It'll be out somewhere around next week. Raphtalia won in the WN but she was first wife out of 3+ he probably has who knows how it's gonna be in the LN
>>
>>152474679
But we got a cute raph-chan out of it, we also get to read how naofumi cries himself to sleep while he thinks his daughteru/waifu is dead while hugging tanuki hug pillows.
>>
Dropped some chapters ago. I simply couldn't handle the rage. I don't read manga to get frustated like this.
>>
>>152474731
Well, LN is different from the WN.
And the manga seems to go to the LN Route.
So we don't know yet who will win.

>>152475061
So how does the novel ends? I read some spoilers months ago but even those I forgot. I can't picture myself ever coming back to finish this one.

>>152472723
I would read the hero of the Mosin-Nagant.

>>152472908
Does she win?
>>
>>152475521
it ends up as a literal harem. everyone wins except bird brain
>>
>>152475386
[/spoiler]everyone dies and naofumi spends his days living in soul-crushing deppression and denial back in his own world. Ending was later changed to naofumi and raphtalia sent to naofumi's world and eventually getting back to the other world, trancending into a higher plane of existence, and killing the bitch goddess in the process with the oldest trick in the book. They then spend their eternity going to other worlds and killing gods that do the same the bitch goddess did. From this particular ending, the author wrote the spear hero spinoff and we all know how that went.

i haven't read the spinoff, was it worth it?

Whatever lore and worldbuilding that wasnt in the original is done there. Also it explores some what ifs and a lot of tanuki trauma. I wanna get to the part rifiana lives and see how OP she is

that's everyone if you exclude the bird and for obvious reasons the shield

>>152472158

The light novel gets really, really boring after the first arc. Immediately after the duel with Spear Hero and reconciling with Ranpha, it becomes the most tooth-grindingly boring isekai you've ever seen.

And by that I mean, the standard Moebius loop of level-grinding, trading, and basically being unable to do any wrong. This is why stats aren't meant to be LITERAL in RPGs, people, and why actual fantasy heroes don't level grind.

The extended revenge fantasy of Naofumi ALWAYS being right and everyone else being wrong is really dumb, too. The other heroes are equal to him, but they're useless idiots. Changing the Princess's name to Bitch is also just really petty.

Like, the author went full ham here, at a certain point. It's tedious, but it has to be said that it's no worse than most other mediocre isekai novels.
>>
>>152482788
>The extended revenge fantasy of Naofumi ALWAYS being right and everyone else being wrong is really dumb, too.
Yeah, i kinda find it dumb that the other heroes go full retard while they were sorta ok in the beginning.

>But it has to be said that it's no worse than most other mediocre isekai novels.
Such as?
>>
>>152474296
if its end of the WN Naufumi, he can just ignore everyone, including Saitama.
>>
So when is the manga's next chapter?

Does it have a schedule, or is it sporadic? I only just blasted through the manga up to date a week ago.
>>
>>152482874

> But it has to be said that it's no worse than most other mediocre isekai novels.

Literally any other isekai novel, is what I'm saying.
>>
>>152475762
>everyone dies and naofumi spends his days living in soul-crushing deppression and denial back in his own world.
You're shitting me, right?
>>
>>152482990

That's the actual ending. The other one has Ranpha being inexplicably transported to his world, then the novel ends.
>>
>>152483053
I was looking forward to reading this after finishing the manga but now I'm not sure.
>>
>>152483102

The revised ending has them becoming gods, defeating the final boss, then Naofumi splits his consciousness in multiple ways so he can live happily ever after with MULTIPLE waifus at once. It's the most pandering ending you can imagine, but it's a happy one.
>>
>>152482944
Well, monthly comic flapper (the mag shieldbro is serialized) released every 5th of each month, so anything before then is when the next chapter should be released.

>>152482990
So the saying goes apparently. The changed ending is why we got Spear bro spinoff too. aka Raphtalia's loopy suffering time
>>
>>152483179
Yeah I read about that and that ending is straight up fucking retarded.
Didn't know about the original one though. That one's just depressing.
>>
>>152483266
I think I'd rather have a retardedly happy ending to a story like this instead of an insanely depressing one.
>>
>>152483422
Both are shitty writing.
>>
>>152472158
>Anyone reading this?

you serious or just that new?
>>
How different are the LN and WN? Is that arc where Naofumi goes evil mad scientist in it?
>>
>>152482788
Eh, the bit where they go around trading is pretty nice. It's only once the author resorts to "curses are making Naofumi a retard" in order to stop things from progressing with Raph does the series really go down the shitter.
>>
>>152483179
No wonder it's pandering when the author decided to do that after the fans complained. I'd say the retcon was shitty on purpose if the writing wasn't declining since Tact was introduced or the MC went evil for no reason at all.

A disappointment but what can you do.
>>
>>152483535
im not sure we're getting that one. We're in vol 16, and it's the part where naofumi's shield got stolen and nothing of the sort happened. Even relevant parts like raph-chan got moved to earlier volumes.

You can't really redeem what's fundamentally rotten. I totally did not see that coming though. First it was like, "The bitch is deader than dead with no chance of reincarnation" and then suddenly bitch goddess.

I wonder, if that's the WN illustration of Raphtalia, where's the illustrations of the others?

Speaking of illegal, remember when Rishia was 14 in the WN? her age got bumped to 17 in the LN. And while her clothes cover it, she's quite stacked. How the fuck does itsuki not tap that until he becomes a potato?

did the publisher drop them manga or what? It's taking longer than usual for them to release the new chapter.

Also, what the hell will it take to get this turned into an anime? Pretty much most of the newer ones seem to get adaptations much quicker.
>>
>>152492915
No it's the scanlation group that is taking an inordinately long amount of time to TL it. Give it a few more days or something.

Nothing short of a miracle for this year or the next. Only adaptations i care to remember are overlord, Re:zero, konosuba, chivalry of a failed knight and a few others these years though some of them are relatively new. Death march is getting one soon but i don't know how much has the LN progressed there.

read the web novel
Fucking fantastic to a point, never finished it because other shit to do

Pick up manga, get extremely pissed off they skipped the most enjoyable aspect of the web novel, the peddling arc

Pick up light novel as it translated to english.
Get the first one see its the same as the web novel, I heard they made changes for the better due to the authors tragedy boner and 'it was all a dream' ending that pissed everyone right the fuck off, so thinking 'fuck it I like it and will read it as it comes out'

ONLY THE FIRST VOLUME WAS THE ERB NOVEL PLOT

the manga didn't skip the peddling arc, the ln fucking got rid of it entirely...

god fucking damnit. im half way though the second book and have 4, and i loss my will to read them. I may regain it at some point but holy shit cant be more pissed at it then I currently am now.
>>
>>152473935
The author in the original version decided to kill everyone have the main character wake up and it was all a dream

Bitch and whore, and at this point, all really did grind right on his fucking nerves

The next part, she could be arguable used by the church, and her being an effective slave and be put to death if she is not useful to the hero, the third offense of trying to usurp the kingdom is where she gets raped to death as an actual punishment, where she tries to an hero beforehand, with the shield hero getting a video of the entire event to watch.

Lets put it this way, she is princess and her punishments are largely within reason till the last one, but within this world, I fully understand its place.
>>
>>152483871
Wow, his looks compliment his faggotry. Shitty writing or not, the thing I loved the most about the WN was how the asshole got wrecked by shieldbro. Hope they don't change that.
>>
>>152495832
No idea about the authors irl shit, that doesn't matter to me in the slightest as a reader.

Had I known the way he fucking ended it before I was in too deep, I would have never picked it up

From my understanding, all the shit gets solved, everything relatively happy with some losses that's to be expected, you are fighting a war faggot, everyone living was never going to happen. but then out of nowhere a bigger badder bad comes through kills everyone and the mc wakes up in the library and its just a dream.

My understanding is THAT ending got fucking changed even in the WN,

I think she still comes back due to the gate or something but can't be sure, haven't read to far ahead or paid attention to the threads

my interest in shield bro kind of ended when wordmaster happened, but then that translation turned into one of the biggest clusterfucks in translation I have been first hand witness to, that I lost interest there too.

spider got my interest, but i'm so not invested in any character besides the spider, that i just cant care as the chapters are becoming less and less about the spider.

going into konosuba and so far like that I dictate the pace of the events, not the mangas drawer, not the anime's director, I fucking read as much as I want in whatever bulk i god damn feel like, make the story so much more enjoyable.

MC and slave.jpg
120KB, 726x514px
I wonder why slaves are so prominent in isekai nowadays. Is there supposed to be some "comfy" aspect to it? Slaves are of use and living, so they normally should be expensive but nowadays, they seem too cheap. There's also the aspect of using them without any sense of remorse. After all, they are slaves. When you insert a mentality of a moralfag, it lacks uniformity and is essentially hypocritical if you bought such use for a slave and essentially make daughters out of them even though stories attempt to excuse you as "no choice". What comes off as worse is if it is made to make them easy and shallow waifus that become all cute or tsundere as if servitude never occurred or was needed.

Easy morality pets, also yeah, easy waifus, you could also argue that a stranger in a strange land that doesn't have anyone he can rely on so they get someone they can order around freely because there's no risk of getting stabbed in the back due to some magical slave contract or another. I mean shit, even cute stuff like Miniature Garden Chemister which is basically a atelier game isekai LN has goddamned slave contracts.

It is easy to write a slave into a story. They instantly get attached to the mc +100 love points. Slave will also follow mc anywhere and do any orders. Just think if Shield-tagonist actually got some adventurer join him, instead of a slave loli. It is a bit harder to write a reluctant companion specially from the get go when write is trying to focus on drawing a reader in.

They are prominent due to how authors are making the world middle ages tier. And they are rarely cheap unless they are sickly. It's just the MC is usally rolling in bank, or ends up spending 90% if their cash.

The slaves end up attached because most of the time, they are getting better treatment than a slave usually gets. So at the very least, they don't want to fuck it up.

It could have gone alot better than the usual mc treating slave alot better even though it looks like daughter-doting. You see pic related and his way with slaves. His first slave was all battered up and broken. He bought the slave with repercussions in mind as well as the expensive price and the outcome if buying her would be acceptable. He buys her because he sees benefit. He manages to recreate her image in former glory. The once broken girl became attached to such a person (even though he said experiment in the middle of it). But he has actual plans for her and actually uses her in his own plans. He is not above having her commit atrocious acts for his benefit. In fact, his sugar-coated words towards her every now and then are merely poison underneath, and guess what, she is willing and acts as a slave and servant. In my opinion, this story does that aspect well. Moreover, like I said, she was expensive but mc had the money with his position.

Not entirely plausible with the way they often focus it.

Okay guys, have a good night. Hopefully the thread will stay up long enough.

Or maybe the manga will get released so i can make another thread.

It's because they can't think of another way to introduce a girl who'd hang around the main character without fucking off. Also, it's a great excuse to show how kind the protagonist is.

Look, you have to understand - these books are aimed at a target audience who have absolutely NOTHING going for them. These are people who don't dare to self-insert into Kirito, because Sword Art Online makes them feel inadequate.

So you have to go with the very basic, bottom-tier things of "Oh, he's nice. He's kind." But they also know that the MC isn't particularly nice or kind, he's just 'relatively' so compared to the fantasy realm he finds himself in.

It's also the perfect excuse to drop in a 'exotic' heroine like a sexy dark elf or beast-girl, and go "Only I can wuv her because everyone else is a horrible racist. There's no risk of someone stealing my waifu."

Talese did the slavery thing a hell lot better.

>>152499761

I've never read that one, unfortunately. What happens in it?

>>152499791
Talese is an mc. Pic related with slave back to what you replied to.

I really enjoyed shield-bro being upset at the world, not doing favors unless he was getting paid.

It's feels like he's just your average MC now.
>>
>>152500230

After the first arc, he IS your average MC. That's the problem, the interesting part of the premise rapidly falls away and Naofumi just becomes a little sulky and cynical from time-to-time. He's not actually a misanthrope, he's a poseur.

During the Spirit Turtle fight, I was hoping Shield-bro would put the country itself as ransom for beating the turtle. But instead he does it because of "Muh Casualties"
>>
are there any fan translations of the LN or is it only the Web Novel that got translated?
>>
>>152500612

Only the Web Novel. The first five volumes of the LN have been translated by Yen Press, but honestly I don't think it's worth paying money for.

/a/, be honest, what would you really do with servants/slaves? Death March, shieldbro and other series went daughteru or generic-never-was-a-slave waifu route. What would be your route?
>>
>>152501564

Get laid.
>>
>>152501578
Well, at least you have some purpose...
>>
>>152501564
That entirely depends on the girl. In Death March, I'd do it just like Satou and daughter them up since Pochi and Tama are straight up adorable.
If they actually are past puberty I might jump if they offer, but if they have some other skill I'd use them for that. Free them if they earn me enough money to pay back the cost I spent on them.
