Nihonkoku Shoukan (LN)


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

In the Great Orient, lies the continent called Rodenius.

One day, an unidentified flying object arrived at Qua-Toyne Principality’s airspace. The unidentified flying object defied the Principality’s common sense. But that unidentified flying object was just a harbinger of something even more shocking.

Far to the eastern sea, a group of islands suddenly appeared. The country of the islands called itself: Japan. According to them, their nation had been transported to another world.

Now finding themselves separated from their old world and must survive in the new one, how will Japan interact with the native countries of this world? Will they greet her as a friend or as an enemy?

This is a story of the country called Japan as it was engulfed in the chaotic storm of the world.

Basically, the Japanese version of Island in the Sea of Time.

For clarity: The summoned area of Japan are the four disputed Kuril Islands, Japan Home Islands, and Ryuku Islands

The entire country still do business as usual? There is no consequence from being cut off from the rest of the modern world?

Just to name a few:

  • Citizens don't panic? This is doomsday level event, people would want answers, solutions, there are people who will want to come back to the old world. They would not be like "oh well, I guess we live in this world now".
  • WHY WOULD YOU LEAK YOUR MILITARY SECRETS EVERYWHERE??? It's a new world and all of your military technologies or even civilian technologies should be kept extremely secretive. You don't invite the ambassadors to an airshow for god's sake. And why would there be airshow, the country should be freaking out right now instead of doing meaningless entertainments, and surely top priority is to save fuel now that you can't import any at least for a few years.
  • Whatever happened to the tourists who happened to be in Japan the instance of world transfer? What about Japanese people who were abroad? What about fishermen at sea? Airplanes? Do they get transferred with the island by some weird mechanism and all the foreigners are left stranded in the sea or do they just accept their fate now?
In conclusion the citizens of Japan are literal cardboard cutouts now. Nobody has any emotion anymore. We can only see them... more>> once at the scene where the woman gets hit and that's it. Their reaction to magic is even inadequate. It's a freaking breach of the law of nature people, it should be marveled at and studied intensively. <<less

Absolutely not JP novels with lame MC trope
... more>>

because this novel didn't even have MC lol

the PoV switches between allied forces & hostile forces

sometime there is Japan PoV, , especialy when a member of JGSDF into a frontier kingdom who thought they are the last human civilization

good plot, but too little human interaction making it kinda like of log/notes/diary
Absolutely good battle scene! But some battle scene kinda like a rip off from other series tho

espescialy that sonar torpedo scene, it's a rip off from Zipang episode 4 lol

one thing weird, the enemy is soo arrogant too the point sometimes I'm mistaken it as CN novels.
bad english sry <<less

This looks really interesting so far, Im looking forward to more chapters, expectation really does wonders for the imagination, so far Im not disappointed, Imagine an entire country (modern Japan) being transported to another world of magic and fantastical creatures, the possibilities are endless!

Its too early to give a proper review, but this is in anticipation of something that could be awesome if done well, a whole country worth of possibilities, you arent limited by what you can do alone, not with so many people with talents of their own... more>> at your disposal, culturally it will be very interesting, imagine if it were America, Russia, China etc, I can think of so much that could happen with those countries involved!

Japan use to be an imperialistic nation, they would invade other nations, were very warlike, now that they are no longer in our world, the powers that keep them in check dont exist there, could it be possible that they might revert back to what they were? Or is there way of life now so ingrained that they have no desire to do that anymore, I wouldnt be surprised at either outcome. This is what this story means to me, possibilities, what route will Japan take in a world not their own.

I have read a few chapters of a similar story, I think it was Germany that was transported, the impact was felt in both worlds. Im sure the same can be said of Japan, the turmoil would be great, I wonder how deep the author will take this story, or will it focus on only a few key characters, I hope which ever direction is taken, that it is done well. <<less

EDIT: This review was written for the WN version, at a point where the WN and LN series were sharing the same entry, but the WN version (which has an active ongoing translation) has since been split into a separate page.


In case an actual review is obligatory, this is an interesting technological gap series in which the entire nation of Japan (including their entire military and all their infrastructure) is suddenly isekai'd. It's somewhat unique in that the POV is almost never the Japanese people, it's almost entirely from the... more>> perspective of the people from the isekai itself. <<less

I feel that it is a bit too early for a review but I would give mine anyway.

If you liked Gate then I think that you will enjoy this too. The premise is really similar and the only difference is that this time, the entire Japanese archipelago got transported to another world. As usual, common sense breaking ensues.

As of now, there's still no clear protagonist to the story but reading the different point of views of both the locals and the Japanese gives an enjoyable feel. The only problem is... more>> the very few chapters!

In summary, I recommend reading this after it piles up a few more chapters and in the meantime, just read Gate if you still haven't because I believe you will enjoy this more if you already read Gate. <<less

This is a really interesting story and the best I have read in a long time. I really love the concept, the fact that the POV's are from the natives of the New World and not from those who were transported. The writing is solid and very interesting. The give and take mechanism, the common sense involved, the clashing of cultures and intermingling of various values is very interesting. It has infinite possibilities. I am really interesting in reading more!

Add to that, from the text, it seems that other countries... more>> have been transported here like Mu 12, 000 years ago or that strange new country called the "Eight Empire". They might have gotten some other worldly boost too. <<less

Well the best way to describe this novel is that it's pretty similar to Gate Jietai, but with a twist since the povs that you read/see here are mostly on the native perspective. So if you guys like the Gate Jietai why don't you try reading this one too?

I was really excited to know that someone was translating the LN of the novel. Hopefully the translation team will continue translating when the new chapter of the manga comes out (or it would be better if they speed up to keep up with WN's progress).

In terms of content, I think the novel suits me well, although it would be better if the author described his Japanese opponents more cunningly and cunningly: when reading WN, it was really annoying to see them being so simple and illogical.

I tell you what, this story is an absolute banger!

If you like Guns vs. Swords, then this is a novel I can recommend to you.

Basically, Japan (the whole country and islands) gets teleported to a world of Swords and Magic.

So far it hasn't disappointed with the use of the plot's premise, and the interactions between the nations are much believable. Also I'd like to mention a review that I read here on why does the Japanese people were acting normally even though they were transported to another world:
... more>>

When the Qua-Toyne diplomats went to Japan.



Do you really expect constant anarchy throughout the country? I mean people will get tired of panicking at some point and look for ways to actually survive. Did you forget to about the fact that there is a government to manage the situation, and calm the public populace? I mean it's already mentioned they've been there for a while. So wouldn't it make sense that the calming down the public part happened before the patrol operations of the JSDF?


Anyway that's enough ranting.

Personally, I like the world building through the reports and dialogues of the characters.

The reactions of the characters in the story is quite amusing and is important, since this is what most people come for in these types of stories.

The descriptions of the battles are well written. And also the translations for this novel is great! Shout out to Yukkuri!

Anyways I can't really say or judge the whole thing right now since it's only 3 chapters right now, but for what I have read, it's great. Do give it a try. <<less
