This series hasn't been getting put in the release schedule. Not even this chapter, which has already been released.
Just pondering...so if Touya were to die or return to his world while in the unlimited bath, and if everyone else is either in this other dimension or inside of Touya, I wonder what will happen to the other people.
I'm worried about the oath leading to bad things for our hero Will. Guessing we should expect a lot of tragedy. I'm guessing they'll work in some romance with book 2 and beyond (starting a family was a big thing Mary and Will kept mentioning).
How do you even stand up against a god with multiple doppelgangers he can use in place of his actual form? Seems like this struggle against the undead might never end.
Me personally, I'd take stagnated immortality over a mortal life any day. Not being able to eat or drink kind of stinks, but eh, whatever, I can still read books and play games assuming I'm not turned into a ghostly spector.
Man'yogana in a light novel, That had to be hell. And that '23rd century version' makes the linguist in me cry a little, poor Kuroha.
Minor error: In the modern Japanese section the romaji section is missing the line "hiroku yuki watte watashi ga osamateiru".
There's a part where "Tokuha" I think is used in place of Kuroha.
Yuzu is having a bunch of fun with this group in these chapters. I just still can't help but feel she's going to lose to Kuroha in the end. She's bowing out when Kuroha tells her to when Gin collapses.
@Liz said in Paying to Win in a VRMMO Vol. 1 Part 6 Discussion:
King Kirihito! Shh! D'ya want to get sued?
Sorry very good point, there's really no resemblance either- don't know what I was thinking! 🤣🙃
So damned funny! I think I like this best when there's no more plot than an early Urusei Yatsuri story.
Great translation, comedy is seriously hard to get right and this series is hilarious! I can't imagine it's easy to maintain fidelity to the text and keep it funny?
75% in "horrow show" maybe should be "horror show" unless it's a reference I'm missing.
About 80% sensei says "it's not a want to start class". Should that be "I want"?
I think this series is just so much silly fun. You mentioned the time travel aspect being as deep as Doreamon, but honestly a lot of the humor kind of reminds me of a smutty teenaged Doreamon- stupid people getting over their heads in crazy situations. This is great for me because I love Doreamon's humor
Finished. Now that Natsuki is in the running, I'll have to give more thought to her as love interest. I also like Yuichi's intersctions with Mutsuko's friend from the club, but maybe the Oni and her will be a thing. :japanese_ogre:
Just one more thing I wanted to add while listening to a YouTube review online about how there's a lot of things going on in the story...
There are a ton of characters in this. I'm awful with names, so it'll be tough to keep track, but we've got.
Shota = Former Ace Striker
Witch = loves Yuichi's buddy
Aiko = Vampire / Love Interest
Natsuki = SK1 / LI2
Natsuki's helper with a license
Oni / SK2
Mutsuko = Big Sis
Big Sis' Friend (the "Another World" fan)
Unimportant / Briefly Seen Characters:
Visual Novel Childhood Friend
Visual Novel Protagonist
And yeah, that's off the top of my head. It's a big cast, and some of these characters we've only briefly met. Once they inevitably add in teachers and other relatives / parents, it could get really out of control. :juggling_tone1:
@Siphonario Hey, thanks!
When we licensed Paladin, only 1 volume had been published, so I'm actually still in the process of adding on the new volumes 2 and 3(both of them). So it might be more than a week between novels, but shouldn't be too much longer than that!
This came together surprisingly well at the end for me. Despite being so-so on it for a while, there are admittedly a lot of humorous scenes throughout. Still, near the end is when I gained more of an appreciation for some characters, and there are some intriguing teases for what's to come. Moe stuff isn't really my thing, but the characters can be quite funny and endearing at times.
I probably never would've tried this if I wasn't subbed, but I did end up finding this novel to be fairly funny and entertaining. and I do plan on reading more.
Minor typo'ish item in part 7 around 12%: but on the west side of the wasteland there lied a large gate that was overflowing with demons.
I'm fairly certain "lied" is incorrect (past tense of lie, telling untruths); I think "lay" (past tense of lie, relating to position) is likely the correct one.
In terms of potential improvements, one thing thing about the E-book that seems off is the table of contents is located at the end of the E-book as opposed to towards the beginning. Nothing major but I'm not sure if that is intended or not.
In terms of story, overall the character growth from the beginning to the end of the volume shows promise and looks to improve and build going forward.
