when I found this novel, one thing that attracts me the most is the cover.

It seems like "magic" + "dark", which is rare for a "shoujo" to have a light novel cover that way. From there, I read the tags and summary, got interested (plus point to the "isekai" genre), and decided to read the first few chapters.

after reading some, I concluded that this is one of the best shoujo light novel that I've ever read. The action and mystery make it really unique, the adventure in every arc is... more>> amazing too. And moreover, every arc have a backstory in the future of it's own (which I found it fun because the way Erica die is not sickness, exiled from the country, etc normal villainess flags—)

Spoiler

rather, the cause are real fantasy. Like, being eaten with an angel, being killed by Ann who is possessed by an evil spirit uwuwu.

overall, the characters are great, and I hope that this won't be a harem (currently there're two boys, Klaus and Auguste).

[collapse]

right now I'm in the start of arc 3, but I enjoyed the previous arcs and feel like this one will be enjoyable too.

the "world" in this light novel is very detailed, which is rare for a light novel to be described this detailed (it's not bad but I'm quite lost sometimes since there're so many names).

Spoiler

and Erica is one of my favorite type of character, always smiling with a thin smile which seems like "don't come near to me".

I ship klaus with her~

also, one thing that I hope didn't happen in the future is Erica collecting the local beasts. I hope it won't happen.

Lean Tuna and Her Stepbrother’s Plan to Become a Fatty Tuna

For me, the story is good. It's reasonable (since I also read the stepbrother's diary, I found this story more lovable). Although if you don't read the stepbrother's diary version, I think you'll wonder like "what does this boy thinks?"

... more>>
Spoiler

even though there're actual dialogue hints that he love her sister in a romantic way, and will be slightly opened when he confessed.

[collapse]

the romance is more dominant than the smut. It's not a harem either. From total 22 chapters, I think there're only 30% filled with adult scenes, otherwise it's their "daily life". What make me love this series more is the comedy, it's funny and enjoyable since I'm a comedy-lover.

however, there are some parts that left undescribed.

Spoiler

1). The parents never know about it until the end of the series, even though I was expecting what whould happens if they know.

2). This one maybe just my own personal wish, but I want to know what will happen to Amane after the last scene where Soutarou take her away in front of her ex.

[collapse]

I love Soutarou though, even though his thoughts are pretty wicked, overall, he's a nice boy. <<less

The Complicated Diary of a Stepbrother
October 3, 2018
Status: Completed
I like this better than the main story. In here, Soutarou's feelings are described more and it's nice to finally understand what he's thinking beneath that "good younger brother" facade. this story isn't romance that centered on the smut, but rather, it's centered in how Soutarou's feelings changes from time to time. The smut only appears starting from chapter 13, which is half of the novel. And the smut is only 30% (max) of the story. however, his "pov" end up sooner than the one in the main story. So... more>> here, it's not going to describe what happened in chapter 22 of lean tuna in Soutarou's pov. The same when Amane ask Soutarou to help her in chapter 4 (I think) in the lean tuna, it's not described how Soutarou thinks and skipped it right to the decision at the end of the chapter.
Spoiler

I was wondering a "what if" scenario when Amane's ex-boyfriend walks in Amane's house when she's doing lewd things with Soutarou. Lol. It didn't happen though.
their parents didn't know about their deeds until the end, it's also not really described on how Yuuto act learning that Soutarou is dating Amane when he and Amane just broke up not long before.
also personally, I like how Soutarou is even though his thoughts are pretty wicked, he's lovable enough for me.
