Picked up the manga because I read a comment saying it has similar vibes as Marielle Clarac, which I like. Well, that's not wrong. It has similar "comedy where genki girl gets roped into court intrigue & international politics / ML is serious knight which you should fear when he smiles" building blocks.
The manga's first arc is great, but afterwards it feels like cramming too many things into a short space, and the ending feels inconclusive, such that I suspected the manga got cancelled and was adapted from a novel --- and I was right.
Anyway, would be interested if the novel got licensed because the story is fun and with the right amount of court intrigue for my tastes. Would love more exposition on the side characters (like the paranornal princess & the cat-loving vice captain) and a conclusion of the main romance.
@jon-mitchell It's unlikely they'd jump the story when that would take them way beyond what's in the published LNs. Per what myskaros translated from the Japanese page, it seems like ANN goofed and read the Japanese announcement incorrectly.
@lily-garden The female perspective really works in this series. She's quite expressive especially when it comes to scenes where the male mc shows her parts of his past within the other world and what in any other isekai series would have been harem-esque developments but he's having none of it and has his mind thoroughly set on the one he loves, Koori.
@sam-pinansky I totally thought that artstyle reminded me of Mogudan, but the name didn't checkout so I just let it go as just me seing things!!! No fucking way!!!! I mean, if you look closely you can totally see the resemblance with the early Mogudan stuff.
Reporting what I believe is a bugged behavior.
When opening a chapter, the content is shifted down to make space for the header with the series title and part number, and when pressing in the middle the header gets hidden and the content shifted back up.
However if pressing again to show the header, the content doesn't get shifted, and when pressing again to hide the header the content is shifted down instead. Pressing again to show the header will shift the content up instead, and hiding the header will continue to shift down, so after no shifting happens that once the behavior is inverted until the chapter is closed.
Hitting next part after the bug has been triggered makes it so that the first time the header is hidden in the next part no shifting occurs, and then the behavior is inverted like stated above.
Edit: this might be what was reported in early May, upon checking earlier posts, BTW...
I been waiting for My Big Sister Lives in a Fantasy World to be on catch-up.
I've already read them all but am glad it is on catch-up so that others can discover it. Those who enjoy it should consider getting the premium epubs because they feature "Translator's Notes about all the references that Mutsuko makes to classic anime and manga".
The title of the short story「竜王が勝負を仕掛けてきた」translated here as "The Dragon King Made a Challenge" is if I'm not mistaken meant to be another one of this series's endless chapter title Pokemon jokes (endless in the WN version anyway, since all the chapter titles vanished in the LN), as it's the exact phrasing used for every Trainer battle challenge in the Japanese version.
To try to preserve the joke's existence it might be worth adapting it to one of the translation choices used in the official Pokemon game translations like "The Dragon King Wants to Fight", "The Dragon King Would Like to Battle", or more recently "You are Challenged by the Dragon King"
(The official translation keeps changing every game, haha...)
Edit: It's probably too late to say this, but the title of the premium bonus short story in volume 2 「おや？ メラクのようすが……」, translated as "Oh? Merak seems..." is also meant to be the stock "What? (Pokemon) is evolving!" phrase.
