The Country of the Fallen Dragon King and the Perishing Witches
June 22, 2016
Status: v4 prologue 1
Slow progression. It's like Madan no Ou to Vanadis, but the strategies aren't as fleshed out. There're more filler scenes, and focuses more on fan service, and not as solid. The buildup takes a long time, sometimes takes a whole volume, and actual action happens on the next one.

Another hidden gem.

The writing style is almost like a slice of life but the duality of the storytelling style that's rare makes the story meaningful. Pretty easy to be touched by the story if you're emotional.

It's nothing grand and straightforward, but it's painting something mundane as significant. The author also expanded his writing style from volume to volume. The story could've ended with the first volume, and it was written that way. The subsequent volumes are written well too but the first volume still has the most impact.

Rokujouma no Shinryakusha!?

After reading v22:
The author keeps on continuing the story while keeping the connection to v7.5 and v8.5 strong. It's a very well packaged story. Repeatedly I question whether the author did plan every detail for the rest of thee stories when he wrote 7.5 and 8.5. Compared to my other favorite novels such as To Aru Majutsu no Index series, Kyousen Horizon and the series, and Hyouketsu Kyoukai no Eden, this series has its own unmistakable charm and definitely is another of my favorite.

--------------------------

Up to v14:

I'm surprised there's quite... more>> a number of people who likes this novel. I found this novel through the anime (which is interesting but pales in comparison to the novel in terms of delivery, but detail is good), and ignored it for like 12 volumes until I started. It reminds me of Index - where the author throws random 'short' stories only to reveal it's all connected.

This story is also connected like webs. When you think you figured out what the puzzle/connection is, the author later reveal there's an additional connection. Then you start to realize the little details have their roles. I shiver at times due to how well the connection are revealed. The connections aren't 'critical' to the story but it adds a layer of meaning to the existing stories. And I did cry after reading v7.5/8.5, especially while figuring out how it connects to the previous stories.

The author gives a lot of single-line foreshadowing which can be easily ignored, but you have to remember that there's a reason the author put them.

Also actually the author injects a lot of genres, so this is one of those fantasy stories which mishmash a lot of ideas together. The delivery may not be as liked by some, but I appreciate how the author meld them together.
Spoiler

Like.. Outer space mecha fight in the later volumes.. Wut..

Just a simple story about a boy who's good at playing a game, and then created a new character to play with his friends. Will update review when the meat of the story is fleshed out, but so far it's just like playing a game so nothing special.

Can't give an accurate rating but I tend to be more generous on stars because of the number of trolls on star ratings.
