    Synopsis: "...It's fine if I want to live."

    Flamme was chosen to join the hero's party even though all her stats were zero. The only thing she had was an ability with no known effects, "Inversion." It was completely worthless in combat, but even still, she wasn't discouraged and did whatever she could for the party. However, the famous genius sage Jean was unsympathetic and did whatever he could to drive her out, finally resorting to selling her into slavery.

    Even at the slave shop, Flamme was persecuted endlessly, finally being fed to horrific monsters just to serve as entertainment. However, when she picked up the "Cursed Greatsword" that was supposed to melt her body away, her life was quickly 'inverted.'

    The curse turned into a blessing, and her despair became inverted—this was the start of a dark fantasy interwoven between two young girls!

    My thoughts: Okay based off of what I've read and the Overwhelming positive Reviews that it has On Novel Updates I can say that this series definitely seems promising! To give a Rundown on the series it's essentially more like the "I took an Arrow to the Knee" Series where our Protagonist wants to live a Peaceful Quite Life, the series can get dark but not too dark to where you'll just wanna turn away and to top it all off I'd say that the progression of the series is very nice too! One last thing this is a Yuri Light Novel so there's that to look forward to and I think it would be nice to see more Yuri LNs get licensed!

    Interesting, this is not what I heard about this series at all >_>

    The first manga chapter is really dark and depressing, kind of torture porn. The manga series seems to have been immediately canceled because they did one chapter at the end of 2018 and nothing since. The tone in that first chapter is basically as far away from "arrow to the knee" as you can possibly get.

    Would like to see this licensed. The series is rather interesting with the main character's unique ability. I've read a bit of the manga which as of today only has 3 chapters. Not sure why the chapter releases are happening only sporadically.

    As of now there are 3 volumes for the light novel series.

    There was like a 9-month gap between chapter 1 and 2 releases in Japan.

    @myskaros that is a pretty long period. Not sure the reason for the long delay, but i'm interested in the premise of the story at the very least.
