This week for Translation Necessary Thursday I’m covering the sixth set of chapters in Yu IlHan’s adventures. It’s Everyone Else is a Returnee Book 06 by Toika!
Plot Synopsis: Having adopted a dragon as his son, Yu IlHan has set up his armor and weapon shop Vanguard that sells equipment to those who helped him out during prior events, like Kang MiRae and her group. But the storm is only intensifying and what is coming towards Earth is something even Yu IlHan wasn’t expecting to happen….
Plot: This is a fun set of chapters, mostly because it really sets Mir up as a badass in his own right. I won’t say much other than that, because it would really be too spoilerific.
Characters: Mir was probably my favorite character in this set of chapters, although MiRae and YuNa were great as well.
Overall: The story has really taken off now, and the ride only continues to get more intense from here on out. If you aren’t reading this series yet, you really need to do so.
That’s it for this week’s Translation Necessary Thursday.
This week for Translation Necessary Thursday I’m back to Hajime’s journey to get back home. It’s Arifureta Volume 04 by Shirakome Ryo!
Plot Synopsis: Having killed his classmate, Shimizu Yukitoshi, for trying to kill their teacher Aiko and destroy an entire town at the same time, Hajime left with Yue, Shea, and their newest member Tio for the next Great Labyrinth. At the same time Kaori and Shizuku along with Amanogawa Kouki and his party have been steadily conquering the Great Orcus Labyrinth in the hopes of finding Hajime who they still think is dead. What awaits both their teams are things no one could have seen coming…
Plot: This is probably one of my favorite volumes in the entire series, the reason why is incredibly spoilerific, but I will say it also includes character growth.
Characters: We get introduced to a couple new faces in this entry, but mostly we see old familiar faces from the previous volumes. Tio is still a shameless pervert though…. However of the newcomers my favorite is definitely Myuu, if only for what she brings to the story and the cast’s character growth.
Overall: An excellent addition to the series, this is where the story really starts to take off.
This week for Translation Necessary Thursday I’m covering the fifth entry in Yu IlHan’s adventures. This’ll be a short post because I’ve come down with a cold so no Plot Synopsis today. It’s Everyone Else is a Returnee Book 05 by Toika!
Plot: This entry introduces us to a really major character for us and the plotline. I won’t spoil who it is, but it’s a pretty fun character. We also get some more movement on the main plotline which is great as well.
Characters: Like I said above we get some new faces, and I still won’t spoil them. Yu IlHan though is still my favorite character, if only because he absolutely destroys all foreshadows.
Overall: A great entry in an awesome series. If you aren’t reading it already, you ought to be.
That’s it for this week Translation Necessary Thursday. I apologize for how short it is, but I really am not feeling to amazing.
This week for Translation Necessary Thursday I’m covering the third volume in Lyle Walt’s adventures. It’s Sevens Volume 03 by Mishima Yomu!
Plot Synopsis: Having become fully fledged Adventurers, Lyle Walt along with Novem Forxuz, his ex-fiancee and his first love, and Aria Lockwarde, a disgraced noble and now potential harem member, leave the city of Dalien and head to the academic city of Arumsaas which has it’s own Labyrinth they use for both study and trade. There they will encounter much more then they were expecting to….
Plot: The plot of this third entry is pretty good although it starts off a bit depressing due to how the second novel ended. I’ll freely admit I cried during that scene in the second book. Thankfully this book helps pick the mood back up. I won’t go too much into the plot, but it was pretty exciting, and there may or may not be an appearance of everyone’s favorite character (except Lyle).
Characters: We get introduced to a couple new faces in this entry, Clara, Miranda and Shannon along with a Professor Damien who is a bit of a creepy guy if highly intelligent. There are some more people, but I won’t go into them because of spoilers. Needless to say that the newcomers were very interesting. Clara is probably my favorite, if only because I’d love to have her Skill (which lets her copy books she’s read and allows for an eidetic memory).
Overall: A solid entry in a pretty good series. If you haven’t started reading the series, you probably should.
This week for Translation Necessary Thursday I’m covering the fourth entry in the journey of everyone’s favorite foreshadow destroyer. It’s Everyone Else is a Returnee Book 04 by Toika!
Plot Synopsis: Having traveled to Japan to help combat a Dungeon Wave, Yu IlHan and his freeloading companions Erta and Lita got caught up in an epic battle across Japan where IlHan has earned the moniker Susanoo after the Japanese storm god. Now while fighting against a huge monster he’s called the Orochi IlHan is suddenly hit by a new sensation…
Plot: This is pretty action packed again, although there are some serious plot developments that occur as well. I won’t get into the details of them, because spoilers, but this book just might happen to be my favorite of the ones I’ve covered so far.
Characters: We get to meet some new faces, although as they are pretty spoiler-ific I won’t go into detail. My favorites is still IlHan, for his constant foreshadow destruction.
Overall: If you aren’t reading this series yet, you really ought to be.
This week for Translation Necessary Thursday I’m covering the third volume in Hajime’s adventures on Tortus. It’s Arifureta Volume 03 by Shirakome Ryo!
Plot Synopsis: Having beaten Miledy Raisen’s Great Labryinth and acquired Gravity magic, Hajime and Co set out again to find another Great Labryinth. Meanwhile Hajime’s Teacher Aiko is travelling towards the town of Ul….
Plot: This is a pretty decent entry in the series and is full of action scenes while also containing some really important moments for Hajime. As a side note I’ve heard people complain about how Arifureta got boring and became a Rom-Com after the first volume. I assure you that’s not the case and while it may seem toned down there are reasons for Hajime’s bloodlust being dampened. It’s pretty freaking obvious, but I won’t spoil it if you haven’t figured it out yet.
Characters: We don’t get introduced to a bunch of new characters in this volume, but Tio would be my favorite. If only because she’s very earnest about what she wants and doesn’t care at all about other’s thoughts on it. That’s an admirable trait, although what she wants is less than admirable.
Overall: An excellent volume, and while not as bloodthirsty as the first or second, there are reasons for it.
This week for Translation Necessary Thursday I’m covering the second entry in Lyle’s Adventures. It’s Sevens Volume 02 by Mishima Yomu!
Plot Synopsis: Lyle Walt is a young noble boy and heir looking forward to the day he can inherit his family’s territory. Except around when he was 10 year old, his parents started neglecting him more and more in favour of his little sister, Celes. On his fifteenth birthday, he is challenged to a duel by his sister to see who will inherit the household and horribly loses, being cast out of his family. Afterwards, he gets treated by the family groundskeepers and receives the family heirloom Gem from him that Lyle’s grandfather had entrusted to him. From there, he begins an aimless journey with his childhood friend and former fiancée, Novem, and the Gem-turned-Jewel that houses the memories, personalities, and Skills of seven of his ancestors….
Plot: This entry explains a lot of what is going on with Lyle. I won’t spoil the reasons why, but it’s pretty interesting. This entry is pretty good, and is pretty action packed.
Characters: We get a couple of new faces, but mostly it’s still the same party of people we knew from the first volume. My favorite character is still The First though.
Overall: A good second entry in a pretty awesome series.
