Serial Saturday: Arcane Emperor Chapters 19-26 by Aternus

This week for Serial Saturday I’m covering the third set of chapters in Rainer’s adventures. It’s Arcane Emperor Chapters 19-26 by Aternus!

Plot Synopsis: Having been sent to the Fallen City, and World, of Nalmar Rainer, Luna and Kara have encountered numerous Undead. However after severing the control between one Lich and a Death Knight they encountered a new ally, Gunthar a fallen Paladin of Nalmar. He now journeys with them to destroy the Arch-Lich that destroyed his home and stole his father from him…

Plot: This is a pretty awesome set of chapters, and it really highlights how overpowered Rainer’s class is. Not that he doesn’t have to sweat and bleed for his advancements, but the price is incredibly minimal for him compared to others. I enjoy that the author balances his overpoweredness with the fact that he actually has to work his ass off for it, often killing himself thousands of times per minute during his Sleep Learning.

Characters: Gunthar’s addition to the party was very welcome as it brought a needed sense of normalcy, sort of, to the group. Really the entire party are pretty amazing characters with flaws, although some aren’t explored quite yet this early into the story.

Overall: An excellent and action packed set of chapters. If you aren’t reading this series yet, you ought to be.

Serial Saturday: Our Chaoz Final Chapters by SlyOkami

This week for Serial Saturday I’m back with the last set of chapters in Kyle’s adventures. It’s Our Chaoz Final Chapters by SlyOkami!

Plot: Kyle and his friends are now set to face the final enemies in their path for their freedom to do what they wish. But not all is well, and time is quickly slipping away for one of his friends, time they might not be able to bring back before it’s gone completely….

Plot: I wasn’t expecting this series to be such a plot twister, but I had a fun time reading it. Hopefully you did as well. I won’t say much more, but if you haven’t checked out this series yet, I do have to recommend you doing so.

Characters: We don’t get new faces, not really, in this final set of chapters. But plenty of old faces will show up, and not all of them are the side you might expect.

Overall: Not a must read, but if you enjoy twisting and turning plots, Our Chaoz; Our Reality is not a bad pick.

Serial Saturday: Arcane Emperor Chapters 10-18 by Aternus

This week for Serial Saturday I’m back with the second set of chapters in Rainer’s adventures. It’s The Arcane Emperor Chapters 10-18 by Aternus!

Plot Synopsis: Rainer, an amateur arcanist and college student, sought to create a new spell far surpassing the magic of the few he inherited from his grandfather. Yet the interference of an unknown event during the casting of his spell led him to be thrown through space and time. Where status screens were accepted as normal and class distinctions were quite clear. Leveling and achieving a class beyond a simple farmer or peddler was an affair of life and death combined with years of hard training. Goblins were not the fodder that they should be, orcs filled bedtime stories in order to scare children into behaving, and a dragon? You might as well pack up and move to another country. He, however, enters this world with the rare and powerful class of the Arcanist. How will the recently ardent seeker of magic find greater heights, or will he land in deeper depths?

Plot: This second set of chapters really moves the plot along. Honestly I had a blast reading these chapters a while back, enough so that I’m seriously thinking about re-reading the series since the author has started up again. Rainer and Luna’s adventures however have really just started and this set of chapters highlights that fact.

Characters: We get introduced to quite a few new characters, but honestly my favorite might just be Gunthar. Kara comes a close second though. That being said I still find Rainer to be an awesome lead, who is neither dense nor a dumbass.

Overall: A really awesome set of chapters that highlights the best parts of this series. If you haven’t started reading, you ought to do so.

Serial Saturday: Our Chaoz Chapters 68-90 by SlyOkami

This week for Serial Saturday I’m back with the penultimate set of chapters in Kyle’s adventures. It’s Our Chaoz Chapters 68-90 by SlyOkami!

Plot Synopsis: Having sided with the Dezol legions Kyle and his friends in the Blood Pack Mercenary guild start to wreak havoc and chaos on their foes for their deceptions and seek to bring about the end of this Grand Quest. However even now there lurks a danger from their pasts and not even they are guaranteed to escape unscathed from the plots they are unraveling…

Plot: This is a really heavy set of chapters, honestly it almost made me want to drop the series with how serious the series gets in this arc. It was almost lighthearted at times in past arcs, but now those times are so few and far between that I really had to push through to finish the series.

Characters: We get a bunch of new faces in this set of chapters, but the star of this set of chapters isn’t Kyle this time around. I won’t spoil who it is though.

Overall: If it weren’t for being the second to last set of chapters, I might have dropped this series due to how dark it gets in this set. If you can handle that though, I suggest pushing through.

Serial Saturday: Arcane Emperor Chapters 1-9 by Aternus

This week for Serial Saturday I’m back with a series that I was hoping the author would start updating again, and they did so I’ve decided to cover it. It’s Arcane Emperor Chapters 1-9 by Aternus!

Plot Synopsis: Rainer, an amateur arcanist and college student, sought to create a new spell far surpassing the magic of the few he inherited from his grandfather, walking on walls. Yet the interference of an unknown event during the casting of his spell led him to be thrown through space and time…

Plot: The plot of this series is pretty freaking awesome, and while there are some who might say that it’s generic and uninnovative, I would say that it doesn’t matter as it’s done in a way that is highly enjoyable and entertaining. I was really disappointed that the author had a 6 month break, but now that they have started updating again I’m quite happy and hopeful that it will get the finish that it deserves.

Characters: Rainer is a pretty awesome male lead, he’s quite genre savy and while he was trying to walk on a wall, that doesn’t stop him from enjoying the hell out of the mishap. The rest of the cast is rather small, and I won’t spoil it by giving out names, it is quite an enjoyable cast at this time.

Overall: A solid and rather excellent series, that takes the Isekai genre and carves it into what could be a masterpiece.

For those who like: Fantasy, LitRPGs, Isekai, Drama, Action, Adventure, Excellent Plot, Fantastic Cast of Characters.

Not for those who don’t like: Any of the above, but I highly suggest giving this series a shot.

Serial Saturday: Our Chaoz Chapters 48-67 by SlyOkami

This week for Serial Saturday I’m back with more chapters in Kyle’s adventures. It’s Our Chaoz Chapters 48-67 by SlyOkami!

Plot Synopsis: Having come to the decision to attempt to negotiate with the Dezol legions, the Blood Pack Mercenaries are now dealing with the aftermath of the attack of the Demon Prince and a new recruit to the guild. But how much will change with their changing allegiances? How will forces from both the Divine and Mortal worlds will react to this sudden change?…

Plot: This is probably one of the bigger turning points in the series, and this entire set of chapters really reflects that. It’s a fun ride as well.

Characters: We get to meet a ton of new people, but mostly it’s still focused on those we know. Sparta is a great new addition to the cast though.

Overall: A solid set of chapters that comes right after one of the more bizarre plot twists I’ve ever seen.

Serial Saturday: Kuro’s Days Chapters 1-13 by Branya

This week for Serial Saturday I’m covering a real oddball series. It’s Kuro’s Days Chapters 1-13 by Branya!

Plot Synopsis: I was a 30-year-old good for nothing, but because I had run out of food, I had to rely on my only hope. Expired instant noodles… When I finally awoke, I found myself as my loli game character from the game Skyrim in a magical cyberpunk world. I could tell that this new life was not a game and it would be a struggle just to survive. I experienced too much unreasonableness in my life. This time, I will absolutely live a happy life in this new world. Huh? You say instant noodles don’t expire? I also believed that, but in reality, they can….

Plot: Like I said, an oddball series. Honestly this is a self insert fiction that takes the main character’s abilities from Skyrim. It’s not that great, amusing at times, but not that great.

Characters: The entire cast is pretty odd, and while they aren’t lacking depth, they don’t have a ton of it either. Also Kuro is a huge pervert, so if that is a deal breaker you’ll really want to stay away from this series.

Overall: You can find a lot better series out there, but you can also find worse ones. This has it’s own amusing moments, but it’s got no overall plot, and really just showcases the protagonist’s daily life as she gets used to the new world she finds herself in.

For those who like: Sci-Fi, Fantasy, Slice of Life, Action, Adventure.

Not for those who don’t like: Any of the above, mediocrity, or perverted lead characters.
