[2024] 多読/extensive reading challenge

Yep, I assumed right. Also, damn, I took almost 2 weeks to read it (at 510 pages, it was a much longer book than the rest, but still).
So, I have now moved past the content of the anime, but I’m still going to tag @afunian just because :stuck_out_tongue: I do not know (nor really care, to be honest) if they make a new season, but that book is going to be hard to adapt; I assume they will either completely change the focus or simply skip it.
The premise: A war just started with one of the most powerful country in the world. All the strongest familia have been dispatched to the front line. The adventurers from the city being completely OP, daily life is basically unaffected as no one is worried about the outcome. Instead, the setting is mostly a way to get some of the main characters out of the way to put the spotlight on some neglected ones. And somehow to turn the whole thing into romantic comedy territory.
While that sounded good to me (I was especially happy about リリ getting more focus, and getting some answers to my theories about シエル even though I disagree with those answers), I feel it wasn’t handled very well. The author even noted in the あとがき that he had trouble with it, so I think he is aware of the issues.

Anyway, I won’t be able to read the next volume until the lock down in Tokyo goes away… I’m not sure when that’s going to be though. In other news, I can finally go back to 獣の奏者 :stuck_out_tongue:
