@caramelwithoutthesalt Exact opposite feelings than you, but that's why it's good when different stuff gets licensed - something for everyone. :) Frustrating when some announcements seem exact opposite of what you like but there's always a chance next one might be good.
I'm hoping for Grimgar, Realist Hero, and Faraway Paladin, but not all at once since I probably couldn't handle that while taking care of irl stuff. And if I end up having more time that I thought I still have piles of physical non-JNC books to catch up on.
I've read 9 volumes of Grimgar as I started collecting the physicals before became a JNC member, but I want to sell my physicals and switch to following the weekly releases. I haven't read Realist or Faraway Paladin past the previews but I like the premises and I've heard they're good so I'd like to try them.
I noticed for Rokujouma it is for all 31 volumes but that should include the .5 volumes as well so there would be more than 31. Volume 32 is out in Japan also and that should be included as well to maximize this kickstarter! Just a suggestion 😁
I have both a kindle and a nook and prefer the Nooks reading experience and I like to support BN but do find that more books are easily available on kindle and Seven Seas doesn’t seem to have any of their LNs on Nook. I want to buy Lodoss War on Nook and will give it a month or two.
As far as "holding water" I think your comments do a good job explaining your perspective and that it's a reasonable one. I do think my inherent dislike for the reincarnation element is pushing me towards viewing it as replaceable instead of a compelling element. I still want to say the story could be done without the reincarnation element, but it's easier to say that than it is to have to write out a full story that's still compelling.
