After the first three parts I’m not feeling Otherside Picnic
I like the first 3 volumes so far. At first it's a little unsettling, because there's too much that you don't know and it makes it hard to like the characters, but that gets solved fairly quickly. The story starts to flow better once you trust the characters a bit more, which I think is very real-life.
The only thing I would fault the series for is that there seem to be two volumes of side stories before volume 4. Personally, I hate that, and I'm hoping that J-Novel picks up Volume 4 first, but that's just me.
