After I had read this novel, I thought that it was fine like novel. Not better, but it pass. There no are many OP characters and they are no very broken. Moreover, the magic system is well worked; is not like usual Japanese Web novels, where the main characters use a simple and non-explained system without deepness. Easy to understand, the plot also can caught easily the attention, even though I must point that some battle scenes must have been better written and described. If I must rate it above... more>> 5 stars, I would rate it 4/5 stars. I recommend it to have a bit of fun <<less

I love this story, I've followed the manga for years and the light novel seems to be the exact same story this far. I don't however like many of the characters. Natsume, for example, isn't an entirely lovable character especially when things are really put into perspective.
Spoiler

I give her leeway on making Harutora promise to become her shikigami while they were children (she was taught this way by her family and probably expected Harutora to understand what she was asking of him since he should have been taught this as well). What I don't like is that fact that she created a shikigami to befriend Harutora, lived a double life with him, and used that shikigami's demise as a toll to bind Harutora to her. If it was just this I could be mollified but she's abusive on top of that. The storytelling plays it as humor but many of the scenarios don't warrant her to take such offense. Natsume constantly uses her status to order him around, ruins relationships she sees as a threat to her romantic pursuits, has beaten him because of misunderstandings (which is a trope I personally hate because these characters don't have the right), all the while establishing their relationship as childhood friends (sometimes just Onmyouji/shikigami) and then punishing him like a wronged girlfriend when he's in a situation she doesn't like.

[collapse]

don't get me wrong I still love this novel characters like her just rub me the wrong way.

I really like the story and setting, but as another reviewer pointed out, the characters suck so much enjoyment out of this story that it becomes hard to read.

It's incredible infuriating to me that the female lead treats the MC like complete trash when she was the reason he ever got involved in this entire mess. I also feel like she basically tricked the MC so that they would be together, but what is worse is that she tricked him into a relationship where the MC is suppose to completely... more>> obey her. How the heck could you make a person you love into someone who has to fight for you as a slave that is suppose to follow your orders and is suppose to never talk back, etc. Then, whenever the MC even tries to sticks up for himself when the female lead treats him like trash, he ALWAYS ends up being in the "wrong" and other people even say he was in the "wrong". Why was he always in the wrong? The reason is is that female lead is worried about him so that makes it OK to treat him like a trash slave. It's completely OK to call him an idiot when he knew absolutely nothing about the situation until recently, it's completely OK that she calls his friends useless, etc, etc.

If this author was intentionally making me hate this female lead then I would give him full points because of how angry it made me, but no it's not like that at all. The author writes the MC as someone who just accepts everything, including being treated like trash as long as it's by his female lead.

If you can stand MCs being treated like complete trash than this novel would most likely be amazing to you, but unfortunately I can't. <<less

The story itself is ok and the setting is good too, but what ruins it for me is that almost every single character in this story is stupid. Honestly, the only reason the plot is progressing because of how stupid and stubborn everyone is. I also really hate this MC because he is super flat character and the most stupid of all. Really, this story can improve greatly by just making characters a little bit smarter.

I also hate how this story treats death. There are multiple deaths and resurrections. It's... more>> like it doesn't really matter what happens at all if you die once. Second time might be last, or not. <<less
