Demon Girl ~Tale of a Lax Demon~

Description

Links are NOT allowed. Format your description nicely so people can easily read them. Please use proper spacing and paragraphs.

She had a dream: the world was brimming with light. Family. School. Friends. Trains. Buses. Movies. Books. In that world of light, she grew into adulthood… and at the very end, in a white room, she fell into darkness. She awoke from the dream to find that she had become a demon. In the demon world, she lived a carefree life until she encountered a powerful being.

After such a long time spent living as a demon, before she knew it, spreading in her heart was a yearning for that world of light. She plunged herself into a summoning magic circle that had appeared. Then… when she opened her eyes once again, she had become a human baby.

She was in the Holy Kingdom. She felt fearful: while she was indeed a demon, she only had the strength of a baby. Her being a demon, if discovered, would be terrible. Was she a human or a demon? Would she be able to survive from here on out?

I'm giving it a 4, but that's only for the 1st volume, which was fun and rather edgy, with quite a bit of plot development. The 2nd volume is terrible though, as the story devolves into an endless sequence of 6 year old princess tea parties interspersed with infrequent pseudo-horror scenes, as the MC can't decide if she wants to be ultra-popular or ultra-horrifying.

When you think about it though, her nonsensical, insipid, victim-playing, pointless and ultimately painful solitary life is horrifying, so it isn't surprising that she wants to lash... more>> out at the world she creates for herself. <<less

That's another OverCheated MC but actually this very story is fine. It doesn't feel boring or repetitive, mainly because the way the author writes the story is intriguing. Even if there are some clichés type events, MC's reactions are just not the same as every other reincarnation novels, MC is not an antagonist, but won't hesitate to kill if needed, it's a very refreshing story to read

Well then, I feel this one deserve a review.

The summary of this that I can imagine fully align with a comment on volume 2 chapter 3, "The main character is virtuous on the outside but quite savage herself in the inside."

She's the twist of demons and humans, well, yeah, she's a human but reincarnated to be a demon just to be summoned and possessed the body of a baby. The story is somewhat fluffy (with twist) that pretty perfect for filling free time with a light hearted story with some... more>> twist -- to be honest, this one pretty unique itself and I can't imagine another novel that take this kind of approach for reincarnated into non-human (especially demon). The fluffiness that I could feel almost at the level of Uchi Musume for sure. But the dark well established twist gave me some another unexplainable feeling that's somehow, absurdly, also increase my sugar level.

It just... my sugar level... too high.. damn, seriously, Age Progression + Female Protag, it means at some point the protag is a loli! kyaa! *faint <<less

Is pretty good story and I can feel that is going to be much better so for now I'm puting 5/5!, Maybe this will become an harem (reverse harem) but if the character and the story is keep being good I think (how the autor say) being a love story could not be that bad.

The story, in my opinion. has really strong good sides and I, without a doubt, would give it a 5 star, but...

Well, before I begin telling the con's, I would like to list some pro's:

The atmosphere of the story: It's cuter, diabetes-inducing, but has a nice twisted uncomfortableness feel to it, fitting the theme of the series

... more>>
Spoiler

MC's family and everybody else adores her, but sometimes the adoration borders on obsession, like how her father almost instantly falls in love (not in a romantic way) and decides never to marry her off, or how the MC thanks some random servant (I think it was a steward), whose name she doesn't remember and her begins crying in gratitude, or how during her ability test the girl that was testing summoning attribute at first chastises her parents for dressing her up so gaudily, but instantly makes a 180 turn in her opinion the moment she lays her eyes on the MC. Accidental Celes from Sevens

[collapse]

That kind of far too sweet to be comfortable atmosphere. Though it's been losing it's momentum lately.

The MC's personality.

Spoiler

The girl takes no bullsh*t. You pissed her off - prepare to die and suffer. Sometimes voluntarily. She has her demonic side, but she can not only bring down her Satanic wrath, she can sweetly poison your soul, leading you down the path to hell, like the Devil she is. But she can also be a sweet a kind girl to those she loves and a 'Saint' to everybody else.

[collapse]

The worldbuilding.

Spoiler

Or the multiverse-building, considering she travels worlds and explores their lores and powers in the process

[collapse]

Now to the con's, or more like the one problem with the novel: Repetitiveness

Spoiler

It goes same old cycle, with not many changes to neither herself, nor her demon-servants, nor the way she charms people or eats souls or... pretty much anything else. Kind of like DC&Marvel comics: Bad guys do bad things, the good guys arrive, they fight it out, maybe some even badder guy laughs behind the scenes, the good guy wins, repeat.

[collapse]

I mean it's not THAT bad, but it gets on the nerves a bit.

Overall, it's a good series, worth the time spent reading <<less

Fluffy, diabetes, mofu mofu, detailed depictions of gore.

I'm not the best at writing reviews so ill try to sum it up quick, stop reading after the 6th chapter.\

It was all good and fun until...

Spoiler

Main character gets reincarnated once again on earth with no memories of her life as a demon while still having her powers. It slowly progresses to monks with super powers exorcising demons to a MC killing a god but obviously she has to get home right! As such she gets involved into a hero summoning hoping to find the secret to world travel there..

I stopped reading this a while ago, which I find unfortunate because it is a great light novel with light and dark themes that prevents you from getting complacent while reading.

My real problem, and a problem I have with a lot of light novels, is how difficult it is to read it is. There are times the perspective changer and leaves me confused, a lot of the time I don’t know who is who during conversations, topic changes and sentence structures that almost feel incoherent. The thing is, I know... more>> it isn’t incoherent. It’s just that there are times you have to put your self in a specific frame of mind when reading Japanese light novels in order to fully immerse yourself while reading. I used to be able to do that, then I got into Chinese novels, which are usually translated with proper English literary structure that makes it easy to understand and follow.

Like I said, great story and the number of stars I gave it reflects how highly I think of it. You expect it to go in one way then it changes or the tone is light and comedic then it turns dark. I hope to get back into it, especially now that the chapters released have advanced quite a bit <<less

I have been following this novel since im still silent reader in 2016 and this novel still hold enjoyable feeling when reading or re read this. As one of my top 10 novel, how should I say my feel.. If theres one piece in manga, theres this novel in novel league.. As both of them never turn downhill of their originalities. You wont find so much cliche of isekai here, rather you will find so much plot twist in each arc. All character have setting of their own personalities, and... more>> some of them would be our yurushia snack. <<less

Oh man, this novel. Its funny, cute, and brutal and the same time. The author got good sense of humour, even though its dark.
Spoiler

The novel also like to step out of your comfort zone, a bit weird but that arc is one of the best this novel got to offer.

Superb, I never read something like this before. Translation quality also very good.

Unlike Isekai or Tensei genre template story, this story has many elements with interesting twist each chapter.

Protagonist was drifting in void before able to materialize into a *being*. She realize she may have previous life but the memories just a fragment. She then take some interest into living world after involved in great summoning accident and life as Human.

She did know that she was demon and living freely in human world, scheming, taken joy in human emotions and... more>> feast upon it. Also she worshiped as saints both in society and *underworld* especially
Spoiler

make shines (scalp) disappear with darkness (hair recover) among nobles

[collapse]

This separates in lot arcs and ended with twist with good ending. Author really skillful to make me grin and heart dance. This is the major arcs.
Spoiler

1. Preventing war between Human and Demon Race
2. Time slip into previous protagonist life before turning into demon.
3. Removing Skill in another world
4. Civil War between nobles

It's a good relaxing novel as long as you don't mind the gorry stuff, and the way the author shape the character is actually nice, with lot's of comedic situation that really follow normal logic, making it easy to comprehend.

Not recommended for those that doesn't like gore and psychological genre as you've been warned by those numerous tags and reviews.

Again if you find some parts boring please endure because it's only temporary, and will be made up by some more exciting plot after it, making it something like world building.

Last... more>> warning, don't expect any pure fluffy story line. They always had to slip in something horror, though not exactly everybody can catch up to the "hidden plot" <<less

This is a personal favourite of mine. The start is a little confusing but after a chapter or 2 it starts making sense. The MC is reincarnated into a demon (the golden beast) she is close with other demons but longs for the human world so attaches herself to a spirit portal and eventually takes over the body of a stillborn infant. From then on out the story is mainly fluffy slice of life... until her demon side emerges and things get crazy.

Yuru is the main character and tries her... more>> hardest to fit into human society but sometimes ends up going off the deep end
Spoiler

as a 3 year old she got drunk on human soul and slaughtered a few soldiers and demons

[collapse]
She controls her demon side when with humans or tries to. She is naturally op and contradicts everything she should stand for
Spoiler

being a saint to the humans as a demon

Somehow it is between 4 and 5 stars, near 5 stars but because it is pretty early and it could be that the novel will turn into trash, so I will stay with 4 stars.

In general, I really like this novel because there is everything in this novel you would find good. A good and interesting overpowered MC with a good personality who is not completely crazy and yet not your gentle flower. As a result, her actions are not the normal actions the most "i-am-a-japanese-reincarnator" do. Even the side... more>> characters have a personality which is pretty rare today. Also, the plot is really interesting and something new. My only problems are the cliché events and some of the side characters.
Spoiler

In my opinion some of the tags are really misleading. :D
