@xerand only Faraway Paladin's magic is at the level of Dark Souls. Well I play a mage in most games so I'd still try to learn Faraway Paladin's hardcore magic, and probably use it recklessly to show off to my friends and family.
Wow, the difference with Sigrún's character is like night and day compared to the previous 2 volumes. And with everyone else too actually.
And at the end Loptr was clearly testing Yuuto about something, I wonder what it was... Gotta wait until next week for the answer I guess.
Volume 03 - Part 2:
[0%] "It just surprised a bit because it’s different" => Maybe surprised me?
[51%] "you started to remember them..." => Maybe start?
[84%] "So then you’re the highest ranking person in the clan after the patriarch, then?" => Duplicate, I'd remove the first then?
[87%] "there was no was someone as young as Loptr" => It should be way?
Oof, that's gonna end on a bit of cliff hanger, though it's more of the transitional types where you have people dropping hints of plot, but still cliffy nonetheless. If I'm reading the illustration for volume 12 right, the point they end will probably be covered in volume 13 that's coming out in a week or two. Still going to be at least a couple months for us though.
A bit of a shame, since that's right around when more complex terms than I was able understand got dropped in the story. I mean I got some things, as well as the general story flow (I was particularly amused by a character I'll call V for right now) but there were more than a few stretches where I was like, I know something's happening, but I don't exactly what, or why.
Yep, I knew that that Paladin Brigade and their commander were up to something.
@Lex @Paul-Nebeling I totally agree there, they've had no luck with all the Paladins they encountered so far. The only good one is Tria, the one who protected the High Priest. But they haven't met her yet so yeah, the count is still 0 lol
Volume 4 - Part 8:
[15%] "“It’s more like they are lacking in morals than manners...”" => I would change it to rather than.
[16%] "It was impossible to compare them with people who lived prosperous lives in safe towns." => This sentence is duplicate.
[70%] "Just hold your horses, chief..." => Horn has always called Diablo boss rather than chief.
The pace of the story right now is best described as meandering. As Hajime and company search for Cam, I can see things building towards a major conflict. Really not seeing us make it to the labyrinth this volume. Leveling the capital, maybe, but no dungeon crawl.
Also, Rentt has got some divinity too (and IIRC a lot more than he did before, even if he confusingly says it's little in this chapter), which ought to be impossible for an undead to have in the first place...
@unsynchedcheese This is Shinichi we are talking about. The guy that struggles not to refer to Petralka as a loli, can't stop starting at Minori-san's boobs, but can't figure out how Myucel feels about him.
So, this goes offline in the early morning hours tomorrow, right? Hmm. I wonder if I can get through it before then...
I'm up through part 4 volume 1. I do like that they address my questions as they come up in this book (a skeleton has no muscles, so shouldn't his limb movements be bad? The answer was yes, very sluggish to start).
Edit: I'm on the last part.
Are you guys on the Lorraine Train or do you ship someone else?
I am wondering is the new power suit they mention in Part 3 and the end of Part 1 talking about Wing-0 from Gundam Wing? If so then that would be pretty nuts given what that suit can do, and the havoc it can do to the pilot.
@myskaros said in WTF kind of scam is this?:
I feel like the first question in the FAQ needs to be "Is this like Netflix or Crunchyroll but for light novels?!" with an emphatic "NO!"
I thought JNC was just that for a long time. Was quite disappointed to learn that it was otherwise, and further more disappointed to learn that from reddit rather than the official site. FAQ really needs that question imho.
I got my membership fully knowing how the site worked, so no regrets on that part, well worth it for me. But I can see where misunderstandings could occur where it shouldn't.
