Hey all I’m back with the third entry in Ryouma’s adventures for this week’s Translation Necessary Thursday. It’s KamiOto Volume 03 by Roy!
Plot: This continues Ryouma’s efforts at becoming self-sufficient and not relying on the Duke and his family as much. It’s a fun volume for the most part with Ryouma meeting his new employees and then going on a short adventure with his friend Elia.
Characters: We get some pretty interesting newcomers in this volume, though I think Leelin is my favorite. The rest of the cast is just as good as previous volumes.
Overall: A decent volume, but very light on action.
This week for Bookish Wednesday I’m back with the sequel to the book I covered last time. It’s The Dawn of an Era, World Keeper Book 02, by Justin Miller!
Plot: This is a great sequel to the first book, and really covers the growth of Dale’s new Earth quite well. It’s pretty humorous for the most part, and it does get past the arc that was ended on a cliffhanger at the end of the first book. That said if you hope for Dale to enter the Keeper’s games, that doesn’t happen in this book, so it’s still pretty slow paced. Still there are plenty of amusing points in the story. My favorite part was the Turtle Tide portion of this book.
Characters: We get introduced to a couple new permanent characters in this book, and my favorite of them is Leowynn, but I’ll leave the why to that is the case for you to find out. The entire cast is great though.
Overall: A great sequel in a very slow paced series.
This week for Bookish Wednesday I’m back with another LitRPG series. It’s Birth of the World, World Keeper Book 01, by Justin Miller!
Plot: This is pretty much a novel about a guy who literally becomes god and gets to play the best God Simulator game out there. Yes that sounds more than a bit ridiculous, but that’s what the book comes down to in a single sentence. Of course it’s not that easy for Dale, our main character, he makes some epic mistakes along the way, but it’s a pretty fun ride. I enjoy this book much more than the author’s previous series, World Seed.
Characters: We get a pretty interesting cast of characters, the fact most of them are “Gods” is amusing, especially when they chew out Dale for making some hilarious mishaps. My favorite character is probably Irena, but that’s because she’s much more of a calm character than any of the others. Tryval is probably my least favorite of this book.
Overall: A fun read, any LitRPG fans will love this series most likely. Fair warning the plot is pretty slow paced.
For those who like: LitRPGs, Fantasy, Action, Adventure, Drama, Fun Plot, Great Cast of Characters.
This week for Translation Necessary Thursday I’m back with another Light Novel series. It’s KamiOto Volume 01 by Roy!
Plot: This is a fairly typical Isekai/Tensei story, although it takes it along the slow paced and slice of life variety rather than the action filled one of other series. That isn’t to say that there is no action, there is some, but it’s not the focus of the story. I personally enjoyed this volume quite a bit, even with how light on the action it is.
Characters: Ryouma is our main character and he’s a fairly laid back individual. The fact that his monster companion of choice is Slimes is a bit odd, but it fits him well. The rest of the cast is just as great as well.
Overall: A solid first volume in a series that is fairly good, if very laid back compared to most Isekai stories.
For those who like: Isekai, Tensei, Fantasy, Magic, Slow Paced Plot, Good Cast of Characters.
