Your J-Novel Club Novels



  • @raitoiro Bakarina had really boring 2nd and 3rd volumes, but picks up the pace in volume 4 (especially if you like Keith)



  • I have a bad habit of reading 1 volumes of something, and then starting another series - never to complete the first one.

    I'm planning on continuing reading all the series I've started (except Welcome to Japan (yawn) and maybe not Wortenia), but I'm trying to focus on Arifureta, Isekai Mahou and Isekai Smartphone.

    @lixaxy Unfortunately I really don’t like Keith, but I'm probably giving Bakarina a second chance next time it’s on catch up.
    I mostly hope the MC become less stupid it was cute in vol1 now it's infuriating, and more importantly does vol4 stop doing multiple POV on every single event ?



  • @raitoiro It does continue with the multiple POV thing, but has now started making use of it in a better way, so you actually have an idea what's going on. It also starts giving you the perspective of people not in Katarina's party, making the story more living and less linear.
