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

The mighty Katjvarna Empire is currently embroiled in a war with the neighboring Kiorka Republic.

Within an unspecified corner of this empire, a certain young man was reluctantly preparing to take the High Grade Military Officer Exam owing to mysterious circumstances. His name is Ikta.

As a man, Ikta abhors war, is slothful by nature, and worships the female form.

At the time, no one could have possibly predicted that a person like him would become a military figure worthy of being called a legendary general……

The young Ikta, armed with his superb talents as a soldier, struggles to survive in a world ravaged by war. This tale will recount his tumultuous life up until this point, as the curtains are drawn for a spectacular chronicle of fantastical warfare!

Ok I am the current translator of this series so my opinion might be biased but the reason I picked up this series was because of how the characters are well developed and how few incongruities it has.

This light novel wasn’t on the top 10 of Kono Light Novel ga Sugoi! For the past 3 years for nothing (2014 2nd, 2015 10th, 1016 3rd), the story flows really smoothly and makes the reader entertained.

Furthermore the main character is smart, not op but smart, and its not a smartness that makes... more>> the reader think everybody could think of that solution and it’s just the other characters that are dumb.

I consider myself an avid reader and this was the first time I found myself thinking ‘Hm, this is so good, it’s a shame that it not translated anymore (both translators on BT seems MIA), I should translate this so others can read it too!’.

It’s very consistent, the pace is good and overall it’s a very good read. <<less

The story is interesting and well written, with a smart, funny MC, but I dropped it because of the female characters. First, the female lead, she plays the straight-man (woman), it is funny at first but it becomes annoying later on. She uses physical violence on the MC whenever the MC express his ideas to someone, even though he brings up great points. Just because she is blindly loyal to her ideas, it does not give her a right to enforce them to the MC and censor the MC from... more>> expressing his. Their relationship is complex, but they do not seem like friends, or else she would not let others talk bad about him to her face, and she should understand that the MC does not want to join the military. Next is the Princess, the MC is obviously belligerent to authority, speaks out against the rulers of her country, and he does not want to join the military, but what does she do?

She makes him into a hero, and an officer candidate, where he tells her and his so-called friend that it might be the worst day of his life compare to the death of his mother

Are both of these girls stupid? Then there is the Sgt. Major that is under the MC,

she tells all his mean that the MC slept with her married mother, so they would turn against the MC. She is using her personal interest to undermine his command. Later on, the MC makes his men drop some equipment, and she reprimands the MC that it clearly a violation of military command. Is this girl for real?

If those three female characters are killed, it will make the story a lot better. <<less

This novels will suit you if you're looking to a novel that handles things a bit more mature than the usual jp novels. All of the characters are being developed and have actual backstory. Relationships get explored, battles are fought and blood is being spilled.

This novel is mainly about warfare strategies. And thus I would compare it to a more of a mature version "Altina the sword princess" with a MC that has bigger balls, is very smart, less dense, and an overall cast that somehow creates a very comfortable... more>> feeling when they are together, as if you were together with your own friends joking around. <<less

It is a great read if you are into well thought out characters with good pacing and development as he deals with situations in an intriguing manner that keeps your glued into the story, unlike the typical cliches that are used it makes you get that feel of 'wow' or 'interesting' as he solves his problems in a calculated manner.

A favourite of mine and I highly recommend you read it (sadly it updates slowly)

Well, This is a War Novel, with so much tactic, strategy and logic emphasized on every single chapter. Hell, this is go on detail about strategy that if you didn't like descriptive type of novel, you'll not like it. But, if you're a sucker for description about strategy and logical move, this is your novel.

And for character, the beginning is a bit bland, but you won't regret it. The chara development will be shining on later volumes. And there's no Gary Stu character that can do anything. A positive value... more>> for me.

For romance, i'll say this: it's mostly platonic. Why? This is A Novel with War as theme. No one would expect romance in middle of war and killing right?

For now, i'll give it 4.3/5 stars. <<less

One of my favourite franchises if all time. If you love Madan no Ou to Vanadis, you'll love this. Deep, engaging plot. Great world building, and great intercharacter relationships.

A very well written and solid novel. Exceptionally strong main characters, each with their own way of living and characterization that shines through and manages to maintain a level of uniqueness despite being somewhat tropey (or rather overdone) archetypes*1, good pacing and solid world building that focuses on setting things up for future use in the first few chapters of a novel then making use of them as necessary. The hook that is dangled at the end of Volume 1 is very compelling indeed and if each volume has a... more>> hook as powerful as that one, certainly worth reading more of it.

*1 For instance, considering Yatori's extremely straight laced attitude when it comes to military matters, 9/10 of those characters in other novels would focus on her inflexibility but here she's shown joking around and swapping boke and tsukkomi with Ikta. Some of the side characters like Haroma don't really break their stereotype but well.. At least in the first volume, they don't really play a major part as of yet. <<less

This novel is one of the finest novels I've ever read. Definitely in the Top 10 for a reason. But I ended up dropping it anyway because

Really are you sure???? This is a really humongous spoiler that you really don't want to read unless you're really far into the story.


Gotta be sure, there's no turning back!


Yatorishino Igsem dies (and in Ikta's arms too, blocking bullets for him). It was super heartbreaking that after all they've been through, the author chooses this. Well, I guess that just means the ship for the princess is sailing for sure. Or not at all.


Give it a read. You will definitely like it. If you can read Japanese I recommend getting the rest of the novels since translations have died down. <<less

In hopes of someone picking up this series for translation... I really loved to read this and basically binged it.

Good interaction between characters that are likable. And good build up for the story so far. As a person reading mostly fantasy novels I highly recommend this if you like this genre. I also like the romance and military theme.

I had a run in with some sh*tty novel lately so I judge this novel without concerning its contents and avoid it completely for years. But when pick this up I was astounded by the characters especially the heroin who claimed she would do anything for honor and for country even to extreme lengths.

And of course our lazy MC the sloth who sought the easy way out in tackling problems with logic and finesse rather than exerting yourself.

That all I can give with my poor English and review.

I don't understand why this doesn't have Comedy in it's genre.

This is a great story of a "lazy" but brilliant MC & his annoyingly high motivated friends. It's not that He's unwilling to work hard, he just dislikes wasting effort on unnecessary things. He's smart enough to figure out a better way to accomplish a goal. Whether he has any personal interest in those objectives has little effect on his ability to achieve them in the most efficient way possible. Efficient also includes not wasting lives, but sometimes ruthlessly sacrificing... more>> them.

Usually while completely infuriating his superiors. I did mention ruthlessly sacrificing. Lol. <<less
