《Blaze》– That is a weapon made by materialising your own soul with your enhanced will power. I, Tooru Kokonoe, have that ability which is said to be possessed only by one in every one thousand people, so it was decided that I would enrol in Kouryou academy that gives out 《Blaze》, and a school that teaches battle techniques. But for unknown reason, my 《Blaze》 didn’t have a shape of a weapon but a protector, and it takes the form of a 《Shield》.

There's nothing really wrong with the novel, but at the same time, there's nothing really right about the novel. Setting wise, storytelling, characters, all of them feel remarkably tropey and the storyline evolves in a rather predictable format.

Unlike Seirei Tsukai no Kenbu though, where I feel the sum of the whole surpasses the quality of the individual parts, this one doesn't really shine. There's no major problems, but there's no moment that justifies reading it either. Thoroughly middle of the road I guess?

This series is pretty simple. It has the LN trend of "interesting ideas, let's see what it happens" into nothing happening if the author bothers to finish it without being told to finish it by sales.

If I had to say one thing that stood out, it was kind of the idea of a MC with a defensive power vs an offensive power, which does open up opportunities for good writing and character interactions when done well (Shield Hero as an example). But if we do get that with Absolute Duo,... more>> it is the same checklist, if not the caveman version of it. "I have block, you have point, we make block and stab, apes together strong" is not the best way to show your characters having a reason to work and stick together.

Overall, however, the series had no outstanding elements. Personally, I would say, in hindsight, Absolute Duo is not even an interesting entry in its branch of the "LN tr*sh template" it falls into. This series remains average, and I can't really recommend anyone to go back to it if they didn't try it at the beginning.

Go elsewhere, unless you are like me and want to read one of the 2.5/5 or 4-5/10 series as a tester. <<less

I've seen the anime and read the manga and both were mediocre.

This too doesn't really have anything that would let it pop out a bit to the reader. It is full of tropes and cliches and while Seirei tsukai no blade dance shone at few moments this doesn't have any thing that stuck out to me.

It's boring and forgettable. Not worth the time.
