Princes Battle to Concede the Throne


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

The illegitimate fourth prince, Sugen, thought that his current status was perfect. However, one day, he was told to become the next Emperor.

Sugen, hating the thought of having to toil for the Empire, asked “Why can’t my brothers do it!?” to which the Emperor replied, “They have no determination.”

―And so, the bloody battle of giving the other siblings the inheritance started between the determination-less princes and princess.

This is absolutely hilarious. All 4 of the royal siblings are the worst people imaginable. They are lazy and they want to escape the responcibilities of being an Emperor. All of them are super talented since they have: Superhuman Strength, Very high intelligence (except one) and super hardworking (only when they are trying to shirk their duties). As somebody else stated, "They are absolutely amazing in all the worst ways".

I like this. I like this a lot. In fact, I like this so much that, after I translated the first chapter out of boredom, I decided to translate more. Battle Over Giving Up the Throne is the top comedy novel for the year on Syosetu, the most popular Japanese novel uploading site, for good reason. It's unique, it's funny, and it's not another boring beta-male harem isekai. Give it a read!

Works great as a comedy with solid humor, but it's not for me.

The plot basically revolves around the four (or five) princes and princesses trying their best not to get chosen as the next Emperor, in which, they almost always end up pushing the responsibility onto the MC.

The type of comedy used is a very clear and distinct situational comedy with a lot of "tsukkomi" acts mixed in between. We have the cast of our princes in slightly different situations but with the same premise in mind.

It helps that the... more>> chapters are fairly short so it doesn't feel like they're being dragged out by telling the same joke over and over, because this novel is, essentially, the equivalent of a gag cartoon.

Don't get me wrong, as I said at the beginning, the humor is solid. The jokes land well, I personally found them funny and entertaining, and it doesn't feel like the author is trying too hard to be funny, or that the characters are flanderized to supplement their lack of originality.

On the other hand, for those exact same reasons, there's almost zero character development, complex plot or unexpected plot twists (at least so far). In short, if you are looking for a funny, short series, to read once a week when you're kinda bored of whatever is that you are reading or otherwise doing, then this would be perfect for you. However, it's not exactly what I'm looking for right now, I even found it a bit tedious to binge read the chapters that are up so far. But, that's just my personal preference. <<less

This novel is gold!

Reading this really makes me laugh and those hilarious things that the Mc's do and his siblings to avoid being the heir to the throne are just so fun to read! The whole novel idea is just so new and interesting

I highly recommend it for people who wants to read a good comedic novel!
