Itai no wa Iya nano de Bougyoryoku ni Kyokufuri Shitai to Omoimasu. ( I hate being in pain, so I think I'll make a full defense build.)

  • Synopsis : Honjou Kaede was invited by her friend, Shiromine Risa to play a VRMMO.

    I don’t hate games, but painful things are a little……no, I hate it very, very much.

    Eh!…the pain would be reduced if I placed stats on defense power?

    Then, the only place where I can place it, is there right? Right?

    Solidly fortify everything into defense, now here I come!

    (This is really fun series VRMMO type with slice of life elements comedy action and other stuff - its like Shield Hero but without Hero and its Shield Heroine :D)

    You got my Up-Vote!

    I feel like this is on a good trajectory. Started as a Syosetu, got a published novel, and I believe now it's getting a manga.

    Last release was April I believe, so maybe next month for volume 4? I guess we'll see.

    One thing I didn't realize, they put this series in the literature category on Bookwalker, so must be a novel label. So we probably won't be seeing it in light novel sales charts.

  • @terrence Yes its recently got manga adaptation and i looks really good

    This is up to a volume 4 now. ^_^

    Just some further personal thoughts on this one.

    So I'm interested in this one mainly because it's one of the few novels with a character who A) Doesn't want to be hurt, a weakling in a sense, which I can respect as someone who would cower in a corner and starve to death in an Isekai, and B) we don't have many series with a strong defense build, and someone who actually fully wants to accept the role as a defender. In Shield Hero, Naofumi Iwatani gets "stuck" with being a defensive character, and his dark abilities move so far away from just defending / tanking.

    Again, I haven't read it, so we'll see how it plays out, but I'm interested definitely.

    Here's my vote for Shield Heroine. I absolutely love the character design. And we don't have many series featuring a tanking protagonist. (I don't count Naofumi much since I feel like he cheats too much.)

    I remember hearing about this and thought it was already licensed, but I guess not. I think it looks pretty solid so it gets my upvote

    The manga adaptation is getting scanlated. It's hilariously fun. Main heroine is so upbeat and silly. Please license Sam!

  • @aruseus493 Wai..WHA?!?...already!??...NICE!!!!,thanks for the info

  • So is it more like a lighthearted fluffy SOL? Sounds good to me. Take my upvote.

  • I recently read the translated web chapters and I got really into this lighthearted series, but also I can't help but laugh at the heroine's actions that shocks the players who see her being so OP. Lol, I always try to find series like this, it's so hilarious and mind-blowing seeing the protagonists doing stuff that's ridiculous (and/or insane like "Dungeon Seeker"), as well the bystanders' reactions when they witness it and had their common sense broken.

  • Premium Member

    I can't stop re-reading the scanlated chapters. (There are 3 so far.) It's just too much fun. XD

  • Premium Member

    So I already gave my upvote on this but I might as well comment as well to bump it back up because after reading some of the translated web chapters and manga chapters... man do I really want this one here! Absolutely hilarious and lots of fun. The heroine is just the perfect combination of silly and adorable, with a combination of general wits and ignorance of "gaming logic" that lets her do stuff other gamers would never think of doing with hilarious results.

    Had to force myself from reading too much of it in case it does get licensed so I still have plenty of new material to look forward to. That's how much I want this to get picked up...

    I had starred reading this long ago, but had forgot about it. It was fun, the mc was a bit OP which I don't usually like but in this case it was ok due to her clumsiness and the that was op only in one aspect defence.

    Volume 5 comes out next month. Also, considering it's Kadokawa, Sam should totally grab it now. :3

    @aruseus493 Would be awesome if he could license both the novel and the manga, though I only see 3 chapters released of the manga so far, so he probably won't be able to get that at least until the first volume comes out.

  • @legitpancake if you’re referring to the 3 chapters that were translated, there are 2 more raw chapters you could look at on the LHscans site have gotten recently. I was wondering where other chapters were when they were planning on releasing the manga soon and comicwalker wasn’t getting any new chapters.

  • Premium Member

    Hahaha, I had a look at the manga a while ago and I found it interesting. I just finished taking a quick look at the WN translated chapters and I'm dying. I'd love to see this licensed! 😂

    @terrence Just say the news on /r/LN. So hyped! LICENSE THIS SAM! You gotta race the anime cause if YP licenses it, the first volume won't be out until after the anime finishes.
