Can I ask for some recs?
So, I really like Bakarina, Second Life (crying forever that it has stalled out at 2 volumes), and Beast Head.
I like food/cooking titles and am enjoying Wild Game even though it makes my kind of cringe once every other part.
I've noped out of the following within the first part: Grimgar, Bluesteel, and Ms. Elf.
Any suggestions for JNC titles to check out? Any non JNC titles?
Apart from Bluesteel there are other 6 titles on catchup until the end of March. Have you had a look at those yet?
(Well, Ao Oni is horror so maybe just take a look at the other 5.)
February - March 2019
- Ao Oni ► Complete series (5 volumes).
Bluesteel Blasphemer ► Complete series (4 volumes).
- Arifureta: From Commonplace to World's Strongest ► Volume 9 translation starting soon.
- How NOT to Summon a Demon Lord ► Volume 7 currently being translated. (Last part remaining with volume 8 translation starting soon.)
- If It’s for My Daughter, I’d Even Defeat a Demon Lord ► Final volume 8 coming out 25 February 2019.
- Outbreak Company ► Volume 8 currently being translated.
- The Master of Ragnarok & Blesser of Einherjar ► Volume 6 currently being translated.
Normally I would say that the beginning of a book sets the tone for the rest of the book, however for Elf-San it really starts in Part 2.
If you like food related stuff, tomfoolery, mild adventure, tsunderes, and light hearted content I would suggest you give Elf-San a second chance.
If you enjoy despair, pain, anguish, depression, anger, sadness, annoyance, and occasional indecisiveness give Grimgar a second chance.
@terabyte Thank you. If it's for my daughter seems promising. I will check it out.
@rahul-balaggan Thanks. I will give Elf-san a chance through the end of part 2.
It is still deep winter here. So, I don't think I could Grimgar. The cold is despair enough >_<
Maybe give a second try to some of the reject when they're in catchup, one part isn’t really enough to juge a serie, for exemple Grimgar start quite slow.
Looking at what you like, maybe try "If it's for my daughter" for some fantasy slice of life (and some more serious stuff later on) or "Potion loli", "Me a genius" and "Lazy dungeon master" for slice of life with comedy.
Not taking into account what you like, "The faraway paladin", "Last and first idole" and "Infinite Dendrogram" are good JNC title.
In non JNC "I was reincarnated as a vending machine"
seemis stupid but also really fun, you could like it despite the odd premise.
It's not published yet but "Tensei shitara ken deshita" is a good laid back adventure with comedy and cuteness, the LN should be publish later this year.
And it's less similar to what you like but "So I'm a spider so what" is fantastic.
