JP Title: ジェノサイド・オンライン 〜極悪令嬢のプレイ日記〜
Synopsis: This story is set in Japan that developed a little different history from yours.
This is how a Japanese Princess relieves her stress of the day by using the latest VRMMORPG, and while playing the villain there, the first town turns into whirlpool of chaos, smashed the underground organization in one hand and went for a coup. It’s literally a playtime diary of a girl who is called as “Genocider-san”, “Roaming Last Boss”, “A different person plays the game”, “Raid Boss”, “Ruthless”, “Calamity”, and such by the players.
My thoughts: This Story is an Interesting one I just finished reading the prologue and boy is it something! So the protagonist is a young girl named Reina who lives in a wealthy family is a little different from the other kids in school but not because she's wealthy but because her idea of "playing" is kicking people down till there teeth fall out, burning precious items and more "playful" stuff like that! So Reina's Mother plays as the moral support for here where as her Father doesn't care at all, soon Reina's Mother passes away and is left with her father who remarries with the woman he had an affair with and brings in two kids. Reina not wanting a part of this new Family moves away (If I remember that correctly) and soon moments later is browsing online and sees a bunch of advertisements for a bunch of online games one of them catching her attention that being called "Karma Story Online"! This game plays in a weird way where you don't play starting off on any side rather your side is determined by how you treat NPCs, conquest method, contribution to a specific country or organization, etc. ! Above all else the Admins tolerate any kind of speech or behavior (as long as they don't violate real laws!). Reina eventually gears up and get's ready to go into this game SAO Style!
It looks really fun, I just hope it doesn't become a "redemption" story where the girl realise that she was acting like a vilain to cope with what happen in her real life and stop acting as so.
Volume 1 cover there.
Referral for V1:
Volume 2 releases on the 20th. Go to the Bookwalker link if you'd like to take a look at the cover.
I’ll be honest, if it were a male main protagonist I’d be out, but having it be a girl makes me a lot more interested. The occasional amorality of the MC is a lot more entertaining than the belligerence of the guy from New Life +
Quite the opposite of the MC from “Itai no wa Iya nano de Bougyoryoku ni Kyokufuri Shitai to Omoimasu” and I still can’t get enough of both.
"Roaming Last Boss" Sounds like the description of me from my old logs. I approve of this series! Well, minus the idea of kicking people down until their teeth fall out and burning precious items. People only have so many teeth and precious items. She needs to learn to find something that can last.
I will always approve of series where it sounds like I can relate with the character either as my current self or as my past self. Alchemy, Gamer, Bookworms, and people that can be identified as "Last Boss"....
And of course there is a special place for characters I can identify with who could potentially have the words "You are so clearly the embodiment of evil itself that the very fact that you exist means no more evil can exist because all of it is going straight to your heart. Your heart is so corrupt that it certainly pumps out pure toxin instead of blood. If you had a soul, it certainly must be an eternal vacuum that can never be filled. If Hell exists, it certainly must be the ground you tread upon." apply to them.
Basically, we need more tales of wanton destruction as a result of someone who doesn't have a sense of wrong!
I don't mind if it becomes a redemption story at some point though. I have a bit of a soft spot for villains that become 'nice' people.
The first volume is available for free on Bookwalker now. (I posted the Bookwalker link above, so won't repost; you got until the 21st of May to grab it).
As far as I can tell, there hasn't been a volume 3 (the volume 2 came out in June 2019, so almost a year).
