    Novel Updates

    Synopsis (from MAL):

    In one of the worlds that exist within virtual reality, Kagami held the title of one of the Nine Sages, a position that placed him at the pinnacle of magicians. One day, he fell asleep in-game after pulling an all-nighter. When he opened his eyes, what he found was a world that was different to the one before…

    More important than anything else, was that the grizzled and dignified veteran’s body that he was used to, had now turned into an innocent little girl’s. If his true identity was leaked, honestly speaking it was a situation where it was very possible that the solemn image he had built up until now would be destroyed. And to deal with this problem, the excuse that he came up with was…

    Oh god yes, I want this. There are a variety of factors that make it appealing to me.

    The setting is really damn cool. It's based on a VRMMO in which everything was hardcore mode where players developed their skills without any sort of guide or interface to explain things. It's almost like it was teaching players how to live in a fantasy world. It's also a Log Horizon kind of setting in which there are a bunch of players that get transported. They're just spread out over a period of time which creates interesting situations that I'm looking forward to.

    Otherwise, the main character is a summoner class which we don't actually have that many of in Light Novels. At least I can't think of any summoner protagonists that are in a series which is licensed.

    So yea, I really want this one licensed.

    Yeah, I also really liked the setting. It's interesting to see that players can even build their own nation if they want to. And the art is really beautiful, especially the cover illustrations. I really hope they will consider this for licensing.

    Kind of strange situation when a male transforms into a female.
    As someone who tries to sympathize with the characters I read about and compare their actions with what I would have done, Can't for the life of me sympathize or imagine myself happy suddenly switching from hairy legged male to tight petite loli and being merry.

  • @vadim
    I'm absolutely fine with female protagonists, but I definitely share your sentiment about a gender-bent one.

    Read the fan translation of the first book. It's a surprisingly solid book for the start of the story. And from what I heard Mira's second class was some sorta Kung master. So imagine a gandalf clone that was instead summoner that knew Kung Fu. Still so far this and sword dad are the only stories I've followed that haven't gotten a license.

    It's been running for quite awhile too.

    On a semi off topic note the artist(fuzichoco) does allot of art for both Nintendo's Fire emblem tcg and Sakura's(and Nekosakura) among a few others character art in Fire emblem heroes.

    Definitely worth an up-vote, while I know next to nothing about the series it's been on my manga to read list forever. It'd be cool if it was licensed.

    It can be interesting, more than the blurb the other comment make it appealing, I just have a question for those who have read it, how is the gender bender thing treated ? Is it like in "So I'm a spider were" were it deeply influence the character or just a way to have both a loli MC and yuri ?

  • bump. Interested in this one

  • I've read the 1st volume that was translated by someone like 3 years ago, but beyond that I don't know how the series goes. However, from what I did glean from the series in comparison to the manga that is currently running as well it has a ton more information. Not like with most series where it leaves out some details to make it more digestible in a single chapter read, the manga literally leaves out scenes that give context to how a follow scene is occuring so its like you are watching a slide show summary of the series lol. Would definitely appreciate a official translation.

  • They should start translating this light novel. There are already 10 volumes released in Japan. That means it is popular. I hope there is an anime.

    You should start requesting it on Seven Seas' survey, since they just picked up TSKD meaning they now have a relationship with Micro Magazine.
