  • Accomplishments of the Duke's Daughter


    Rating: 21 Aug 2020

    Status: Waiting for more chapters to be translated.

    Description: A Japanese girl reincarnates as the daughter of a duke in the Kingdom of Tasmeria. This is actually quite a good novel on romance, political intrigue and royal affairs, and I thoroughly enjoyed reading it as the characters are likeable and interesting.

  • Against The Gods


    Rating: 25 Aug 2020

    Status: Waiting for more chapters to be translated.

    Description: The first half of the novel is very good. There's like 9 volumes of content for you to get mixed up in. Then the second half of the novel is where it falls apart. The protagonist decides to leave his lower realm home and ascend into the realm of gods. The protagonist relies too heavily on plot armor and external forces to survive life and death situations. In the Realm of Gods the protagonist devolves into a stupid, stubborn, arrogant, self-centred, disobedient idiot. He foolishly throws himself into absurd situations without using his brain. His greatest weakness is his obsession with women. The protagonist has several cheat powers to fight old monsters, but how this idiot survived so long is still a question on every reader's minds. The people who suffer most from his stupidity are obviously his wives, friends and family.

  • Akashic Records of the Bastard Magic Instructor Info


    Rating: 21 Aug 2020

    Status: Dropped.

    Description: An ex-royal court mage leaves her majesty's service and teaches at a magic academy. He portrays as an unlikeable, arrogant clown at the magic academy, but his backstory is far more intriguing, sinister and dark. Once the story fleshes out his backstory you begin to like the protagonist a lot more as a character. The supporting cast (three girls) also have their own dark history and compliments the main protagonist as the story develops. The anime is worth watching.

    Description: A group of extraordinary army cadets take turns embarrasing another kingdom's professional army.

  • Altina The Sword Princess Info


    Rating: 21 Aug 2020

    Status: Waiting for more volumes.

    Description: The third princess of a kingdom swings a giant sword on the battlefield, whilst dragging along an unconventional army strategist to assist her in the royal struggle for power. This is a great novel on military strategy, royal affairs and kingdom politics. The protagonists (two of them) are likeable and interesting. It's fun to read because they develop as individuals over the course of the story, as well as an intimacy and bond between the two protagonists. Supporting cast are also interesting and fun to watch. I loved reading this one.

    Rating: 04 Feb 2020

    Description: A dude borrows the power and knowledge of mythical dragons to ascend from martial artist to godhood. The dude loves his little sister way too much.

    The MC is a bit dense and leaves a trail of romantic love interests in his wake. But he is always seeking more power and chasing every bit of knowledge and strength, which makes the manga exciting to follow. This web novel translation is machine translated unfortunately.

    Rating: 21 Aug 2020

    Status: It wasn't fully translated when I dropped the novel, and I can't remember exactly where I got up to. I think the MC just got his fourth slave contract.

    Description: A degenerate protagonist uses master-slave contracts on elven women to do his bidding. The novel is a bit dark initially, but as the story develops the protagonist discovers that making his slaves smile is far more advantageous than being cruel. The cumulative effects of making multiple slaves happy makes him extremely overpowered.

  • Campfire Cooking in Another World With My Absurd Skill Web Novel Light Novel

  • Cooking With Wild Game J-Novel Club

    Description: A dude runs into his burning restaurant, grabs his father's knife, and then dies as the building collapsed on him. Then wakes up in a forest of another world, and decides to continue to be a chef like his dad? The prologue is completely retarded. Haha.

    Honestly it is a bit boring. I don't think I'll read more than the first volume. Barely anything happened in the first volume except that a dude landed in a new world and he has done nothing about his situation except follow a native around. YAWN.

  • Riaru de Reberu Age Shitara Hobo Chitona Jinsei ni Natta


    Rating: 04 Feb 2020

  • Risou no Himo Seikatsu


    Rating: 04 Feb 2020

    Description: I read this as a manga initially. A young, warrior queen from another world magically summons a Japanese middle aged corporate worker to be her husband. She doesn't require her husband to do anything like a King, only to be a figurehead within the kingdom and essentially give her an heir. The mystery surrounding why he is summoned is soon revealed.

    It has a slow start but it's different from most of the 'summoned to another world' novels I have read. The dude takes an interest in kingdom policies and politics, and also uses modern concepts to deal with complex issues that arise (like tackling corrupt nobles stealing from the kingdom's treasury by crunching the finances using a portable laptop and spreadsheets LOL).

He somehow saves her, although it is not very well explained in the anime.

  • Slave Harem In The Labyrinth Of The Other World


    Rating: 04 Feb 2020

    Description: Started reading the manga before switching to the novel. The plot is exactly as the title describes. The MC have some cheat like powers and items, and initially applies his modern Japanese common sense on to the 'other world', but soon breaks that common sense when he realises it wouldn't work as he imagined, and he uses slaves as party members to battle in the labyrinth and survive this harsh new world.

    He gets ganked in the labyrinth by other adventurers so he becomes reluctant to use companions from the adventurer's guild. He visits a slaver who introduces him to the concept of a slave contract and sells him a beautiful dog girl, who also happen to be a front line fighter. A slave could never attack their master without consequences which makes this convenient to the MC. It's a similar plot to the Rising of the Shield Hero where the MC contracts a slave (racoon girl) and Filo (store bought pet) to fight on his behalf. In this novel his contracted slaves increase the MC's chances of survival significantly.

    Description: A martial arts fighter gets sent back in time to his 13 year old self after nearly dying. It follows the same pattern as graphic novels like Apotheosis and Battle Through The Heavens and Holy Ancestor. The dude has memory of his past life, and thus he can draw upon a wealth of knowledge, well beyond the current timeline, recall long lost inscriptions from memory, gift his potential allies with valuable and rare cultivation techniques, recite forbidden chants or incantations without reading a scroll, and even understand how to make stupid amounts of money needed to fund his equipment expenses, miracle elixirs, medicinal pills, demon spirit evolution, and saving his faction from the brink of financial disaster. The author has apparently gotten bored and may not finish the series. :(
