I'm disappointed in you, Shinichi. You counted Shiny Luminous, but missed out Milky Rose, and I don't know where you got "Chestnut" from. Being washed by a naked beastgirl is no excuse. I'll forgive your leaving out Bright and Windy, since they're more like alternate forms for Bloom and Egret.
More seriously, yeah, it's nice to learn that everyone already knew about Amatena and Clara stowing away at the mansion, but just didn't have concrete proof, so they didn't bother mentioning it.
When Touko was introduced, I was wondering how the author would deal with a heroine with the power to alter reality. I guess bringing deities to the table was the answer.
Now we know what happened to future Rekka, I hope he too will be involved in saving the day, although in that case it's not going to be easy for the author not having him completely overshadow present Rekka.
She was definitely lacking something inside her that prevented her from being wary towards other people.
"You trust beyond reason."
"Yes. It's how I get results beyond hope." - Clement Koudelka and Cordelia Vorkosigan
I've said it before, but I love how Myne makes everything better simply by being who she is.
Regarding the title, I kind of wish it gets changed too.
Because for me, "Sexiled" brings to mind the opposite impression: it sounds like one of those excuse-plot porn games or stories that have very little value other than titillation.
It's only the subtitle that made me realize it's probably not that. If the subtitle was the actual title, I wouldn't feel as weird for noticing this story in the first place.
It's kind of like the first iteration of the English title for Elf Bride, which was "Slave Elf Bride". Brings to mind unsavoury connotations.
Ah, that was so satisfying. I'm loving this series more with every volume. Though I would have preferred an illustration of Ai Fa hugging Asuta rather than the one we got of her eating (though that was cute too). I can't wait for the next volume!
@jon-mitchell Factoring in protagonist cluelessness, at least three volumes. I was actually surprised he figured out who she was before the end of the first volume. Figuring out that she's there because she's in love with him? Glaciers move faster. Accepting her as his partner? Not gonna hold my breath.
There's a problem with the italic text in the premium edition (at least) - there's no space before and after, e.g.:
<p><em>Now then,</em>I thought.<em>Did he even apologize? Oh, he did say “sorry.” Did he thank me for picking it up? He did, yeah.</em></p>
It's the same for all italic text blocks, so probably some general problem in the epub conversion.
@harmlessdave The anime followed remarkably close to the LN. Not to contradict, but there's a fair amount of slapstick physical comedy in the LN as well. I lost count of the number of times Junko got her clothes blown off by Akuto. But to answer your question, yes, the story does remain interesting, if a bit convoluted. Only now, at the end, do we see what it's all about. What it's always been about.
@vine Unless deliberately aimed, a la Arifureta. Might still activate if it's totally by accident. Sort of something like falling off a cliff, I think he's covered. I wonder if it would activate it he were pushed off a cliff...
I've also heard "ani-ue" before, but that's mostly because I watch a lot of harem anime, and there's usually one old-fashioned faux-samurai-esque character who speaks in very archaic period speech.
Maybe "Honoured Brother" or "Most Honoured Brother"? "Brother Mine" or "Mine Brother" was my immediate thought too, but on reflection it sounds a bit sarcastic.
(Also about "mustached", while I agree that "bearded" would probably be more appropriate given the art, if it really is just about a man with a mustache and no beard, the term would probably be "mustachioed".)
@jan-suzukawa And... since I can't figure out how to do a new post without replying to someone else's post, I'm going to post by replying to myself. -_-
Just want to say that this week's part may have been a bit slow, but things really pick up next week when we meet Godma - who is a real piece of work.
There are some twists and turns coming, necessary to set up the action - and then a LOT of action.
@cosmicspear said in Lazy Dungeon Master Vol. 7 Discussion:
And that's the version he told to a kid as a bedtime story?
Not as a bedtime story, as a story of other adventurers, since his were too boring, delivered during the tea party before afternoon prayer.
OK, his bedtime...
@rahul-balaggan True. I suppose it's just an issue with the writing style in general, since we mostly get all the details about what Sagi thinks, but not much about how he interacts with others when not putting on a show. As it is, he comes off as basically having zero charm (not repulsive, but just uninteresting, superpowers aside), but that's just because we don't see how he acts in day-to-day.
