Hello, Jeanne... can't wait for you to meet Hakuya.
And I suppose we'll have to wait for a few months after Volume 7 releases in Japan to see how they handle Roroa's Cleopatra Maneuver. Brilliant economic mind mimicking one of the most brilliant political minds of the ancient era... great minds think alike, I guess.
@EmpactWB Hi there, just wanted to let you know that there is historical/cultural precedence for polyandry (I'm a history nerd). So in areas with super scare resources you want to keep the population manageable and not have too many kids at once, lest you cause famine. So one woman would take more than one husband, which was a sort of natural birth control, since a woman could only have one pregnancy at a time. The second reason, besides this, is inheritance. Here in the west, that was fixed by only allowing the first born son to inherit, forcing any other sons to leave and find some other way to support themselves. In other societies (a decent chunk of them eastern) this problem was solved by having all the brothers marry the same woman, called fraternal polyandry. This way the property stayed within the family, but none of the sons were kicked out. Which again ties back into the whole scarcity thing, since this way you wouldn't be dividing land, and it would cut down sibling infighting. So there is a very good reason for polyandry, aside from an aristocratic thing or 'just cuz I can', for the same reason as polygyny (producing enough heirs for someone to inherit, or to ensure a competent heir inherits, if the first son is an idiot or a jerk or easily influenced) although interestingly it was for the exact opposite reasons as polygyny.
@hopebestman i dont want to create a whole discussion about it. Its just funny how magic system works in different LNs. Most of the isekai MCs are adjust quickly because they are geek like us. But thinking about "which magic system works on this world? LDM or Realist Hero? or a game base system? Like in WoW or something? hmmm", and it would be funny to read for first 1-2 chapters :D
The way Souma keeps going on wars and feels "forced" to go into war is a rather interesting imperialist thinking process. Also how they mention several times how it's a country where all these different varieties of non-humans and religions can co-exist. It feels vary much like Imperial Japan and how they wanted all Asians to to be grouped together in one massive (of course Japanese controlled) area. Though I guess there is no imperial west that Souma is saving anyone from.
It's still a fun novel but it's interesting to think about.
@SomeOldGuy Well, she could definitely do that to if she thought it necessary, but unless a guy were really pushy, I doubt that she would do that. And with her spending pretty much all of her time at the castle past a certain point, it's not like many guys would have had the opportunity to propose to her in person instead of by letter. Regardless, as nice as she typically is, she's clearly not the sort of woman you want to piss off.
There's also no guarantee that she wrote the symbols down correctly, so we have basically nothing to do go on at this point.
Also, IIRC, the demon lord's name was supposedly Devilroi, which isn't even really French. Roi would be king in French, but devil isn't a word in French. Devil in french would be diable. So, it's a mishmash of languages.
From what happened with the object that showed up in volume 6, whatever system was put in place pretty clearly understands multiple Earth languages and was prepared to handle multiple Earth languages. So, who knows if the monolith is even displaying a single language, and if it is, it could easily be its own thing even though the obvious assumption would be that it was kanji or similar just because then Souma would recognize it if he had the chance to actually read it.
They've dropped major hints that the planet where the story is taking place is somehow related to Earth (be it Earth itself, a colonized planet, an alternate version of Earth, or whatever), and language plays a factor into that, but we've been given so little to go on in general that we can't do much more than speculate.
To build a charger, you would first need a basic understanding of electricity, which Souma laments doesn't exist.
Then, you need a way of figuring out the voltage. A USB charger puts out about 4.5-5.1 volts. An alkaline cell is about 1.5v, lead-acid nominally 2.1v or so. Figure out the formula for a cell and build a battery that matches, AND construct a way to attach it to the phone's charging port, and the on-board electronics could deal with the rest, but such things weren't in Souma's studies.
Naden does not currently know how to control her electricity nearly enough to recharge a battery.
See, it comes down to the inventors mind. Knowing point A, and you need to get to point Z is half,the battle...
Genia or another would HAVE to find a way to measure wattage, amperage and voltage. Souma should have at least this knowledge, of not how they differ. Hell I sure as hell don’t.
Alternatively/additionally Naden would need to learn how to regulate her own electrical discharge... she would essentially need to understand Those self same measures. Or run it through Genoa’s device.
This isn’t in another world with my smartphone tho... (thankfully?). Not that his phone would help that much...
@hopebestman I was teasing a bit with the comment about Souma, my bad on that being unclear. But we’re also talking about a situation where royal heirs with the rights to succession still remained. So even if the descendants of Secondary Queens were wandering around, they had no way to participate in the succession crisis. There is no line of succession through a Secondary Queen whatsoever, as far as we are told: “Conversely, while a woman of any class (even a slave or a prostitute) could become a secondary queen, their children had no right of succession. However, they were still royalty...” This is never indicated to have exceptions, with the likely in-universe explanation being that you don’t really want to legally declare more people who can kill you to take your job. Despite being royalty, they and their descendants can never take the throne by legal means. It would be treason to make the attempt and civil war is the most likely outcome. So even if Castor’s ancestors include the Hero King, if it was by way of a Secondary Queen, Castor wouldn’t have been in line for the throne even if he were human. I’d still expect it to have come up at some point from someone as proud as Castor started out, but since it isn’t relevant, I can’t rule it out even in light of the succession mess. (Whew, managed to bring it back on topic!)
Hmmm, I have ebook version 1 and 2 for realist hero 3 and I don't find in calibre in both any mention of Luu.
I get in Version 1.0 and 1.0.1 of volume 4 6 occurences for "Big Brother Luu" and "Big Sister Cia". So both are in it. And as I just downloaded the latest version 30 minutes I don't assume you have newer ones.
@trashboat Apparently, the author infringed on some rules and the account was banned from syosetu. It seems the author parodied a song in a reply in the comment section, and the account was already suspended once before for the same infringement in the story itself. At least, that is what I find when googling. No idea how accurate it all is.
