JK Haru is a Sex Worker in Another World: Summer
@harmlessdave Sure, but that boils down to the same thing from our perspective. We have very limited information about how the wanted system works.
On a tangent, I went back to Volume 7 to re-read the scene with Sechs and Gerbera and found this little tidbit.
It leaves open a possibility that Hannya is part of IF and simply not taking part in the jailbreak, but I suspect she probably isn't.
@eternal-wanderer in regards to the huge fires, both telekinesis and time stop are effective counters, for time stop she can just make the fire continue burning which will make it fizzle out since there's no oxygen supply, and telekinesis he can just make a barrier between the fire and its fuel or choke it out with one.
I kinda doubt there would be a case where she uses her powers and nobody would be watching remotely, for now at least.
@rahul-balaggan The world in general seems to be pretty heavily skewed against women so I wouldn't look to too many men being shown in a positive light as the MC goes on her rampage. Which is fine. There are tonnes of wish fulfilment fantasy novels for guys with all sorts of... stuff... so one where a woman goes around crushing misogynists has its place.
One thing that I thought was completely unrealistic was the mage school was docking points from female test-takers just for being women. That was way over the top and really took me out of oh wait - that actually happened.
To those that made it this far, is the story good after the parts covered in the anime?
I liked the anime, but I'm finding reading volume 1 a bit of a slog since it seems exactly the same without any interesting extra details. Also, the first few episodes of the anime were cliched slapstick humor that I endured more than enjoyed. I'm thinking of skipping ahead.
@terabyte said in The Greatest Magicmaster Vol. 3 Discussion:
So Tesfia is already back. Makes sense she came back faster after that attack.
Volume 3 - Part 3:
[56%] “Loki, this is one of our bad habits. Why not take ► Is it our referred to both (Loki and Alus) or should it be your referred to Loki alone? At first I thought it was meant for Loki only, but it can go both ways I guess.
Alus sees the closed off part of himself in Loki so I think our fits here.
I get the feeling the author is inserting subtle hints about certain things that might prove important later on. A couple of particulars I noticed:
The goblin side story implies Manato was dreaming about being goblins just like Haru. Possibly giving us insight about non-human races in Grimgar.
Manato's POV implying some messed up family background and how he skipped his training. Insight regarding Renji's situation.
Yume and Shihoru's chapter again confirms just how long volunteer soldiers have been appearing in Grimgar. Considering Sarai's age, perhaps centuries.
Anything else you guys notice?
Regardless of how many parts users prefer any series to be all of that is up to the translation team and JNC, if you wish to discuss it any further please open a new topic.
Edit: Since some users still wanted to continue with the side topic I have moved it to it's own dedicated thread
"We interrupt your regularly scheduled action for an extended interval of necessary exposition. Action may return in our next episode."
This part would be better without the week wait for something to happen :)
Character guide updated with volumes 15 and 16
13 new characters for volume 15, and 21 new characters for volume 16.
Both volumes also required some edits to existing characters, going back as early as volume 3. As always, to prevent spoilers, edits are book-scoped and won't show up until you select the appropriate volume with the slider.
The character guide doesn't cover the stories included in the premium epubs. I started buying the series on Kindle, y'see.
In the published volume 16 there's a minor issue with the middle names of the Gardio people. The emperor is introduced as Falchion Lig Gardio, but then his son is Lucrecion Rig Gardio, and the new emperor is Lancelet Rig Gardio. @Steiner
I can now start reading the new prepubs, yay
