Review of Mahouka Koukou no Rettousei light novel

Mahouka Koukou no Rettousei light novel isn’t really completely exactly what I see as uneven. Nothing too irrational happens throughout the program of the programand most of the actors doesn’t have that “it” element. Instead, Mahouka does have something we won’t see consistently because of there is magic at secondary school, or more particularly the Personal Magic College Affiliated Senior high school. It’s right here where we satisfy the primary characters as well as siblings – Tatsuya Shiba and also his sibling Miyuki Shiba. As well as with their registrationstates this tale at an uneven secondary school where regular things occur andsometimes does not.

Adjusted from Mahouka Koukou no Rettousei of the same name written by Tsutomu Sato, the collection happens in a more advanced future in the year of 2095. In this globe, magic exists as a type of modern technology for both utilityand tools of war. Basically, the collection depicts the configuration of the innovator with the aftermath of a globe war. As well as currently, magic reigns as dominant source of power. As a matter of fact, its idea is held so high in respect that pupils are separated into courses based on their ratings, performances, as well as skills based upon their magic. But hey, it’s a college so trainees still attend it regularly but with magic as an added component. Yet, Mahouka has an unreasonable pacing when adjusting its story. By irrational, I do not indicate it as incongruity yet instead by execution. It does not totally revived when it tells the story as well as however lacks a bite to take in what people could expect.

The first episode does not blast off well. It does not have any type of kind of wow aspect and feels lifeless handy. Rather, exactly what you get is a mass amount of details unloading relating to the setup and also some fundamental ideas of the series. As opposed to informing though, the series explains it in packages. This first arc (known as the Registration Component 1 adapted from volume 1 of the light novel) is a lot more like a style mashup with an extremely emphasis that virtually forces the visitors to recognize every piece of the facility. And also to do it by doing this, they also introduce the majority of the primary characters. Besides the Shiba brother or sisters, a host of other personalities including ones from the trainee council make their debut. We have no idea much regarding them besides their placement, some bits of their individuality, and essentially a weak basicviewpoint of just how we might be curious about them. Then, there’s the weak globe building in the first arc with a mass amount of presentation of the mechanics involving the series‘ generics. While common is great, the programcannot provide this with comedy. It might have been funny or at the very leastattempted with some effort at jokes. Also fan solution could‘ve aided here in some respect. Rather, exactly what you get is pseudo-incest undertones in between the siblings.

I wouldn’t state the show has to do with a cast of personalities discovering magic. In fact, the seriestale arcs adjust them and also provide each character some type of duty. However on lots of occasions, their roles chokes up the plot with their gimmicks. Besides Miyuki’s borderline obsession with her beloved brother, she essentially has little to no personality. We do not find out much about her past either as characterization is fairly weak throughout the whole series. And alsogiven that the show does not adjust a specific quantity from the Mahouka Koukou no Rettousei light novel, we do not see much else regarding her from a personalviewpoint. Regardless, the brother or sisterspartnership is polarizing as they do not have chemistry. Their characters typically aren’t compatible as well as it’s tough to connect to them by any type of term of realism. As a matter of fact, an audience can easily dictate the duo as a pair. It’s indirectly implied that Miyuki does have actually forbidden feelings for her brother. And also the reality, severalpersonalities makes jokes regarding their couple-like standing. When that occurs, Miyuki’s saying rejection and also Tatsuya’s indifference wipes out any kind of sort of wit from itself. When it comes to Tatusya though, he has a rigorous individuality with in some cases a reliable tone when he talks with others. His powerful visibilityfeels inhospitable now and then and also can be considereded as a man of few words. The means he behaves around others recommends that he lacks an ability to feel solid emotions towards others. (this remains in truth true as revealed) Nonetheless, every one of these variables typically aren’t what‘s obvious regarding Tatsuya. What Tatsuya brings into the program remains in fact his overpoweredcapabilities and skills as a student. In spite of stopping working a functional examas well as his failure to make use of non-traditional magic, he has severalcharacteristics that makes him stand out on a technical basis. The programdiscloses this during certain situations that comes to be evident as he reveals more and more of his abilities. Unfortunately, his lack of characterization makes Tatsuya as even more of a stagnant character. There’s little advancement or concentrate on him as an individual instead of his roles during each arc. In retrospect, Tatsuya is a personality that some people might appreciate for his capabilities yet difficult to value or understand.

Based upon a light novel, there’s a particular motivation to adapt everything that fans will certainly aspire to see. As a Mahouka Koukou no Rettousei light novel reader, I can only say that it hardly gets to moderate degrees when it involves adaptation. It does adapt a few of its primary concepts well howevercannot reach home entertainment degrees. The prominentNine CollegesCompetition Arc” (NSC) stretches over 10 episodes and also introduces severalbrand-new principles and also personalities. While it discovers the ideas in their world fairly well by really revealing now and then, it doesn’t do well when it includes more of its dynamic moments. A lot of the games feels reasonably rapid with the essentials as well as foreseeable outcomes. Just certain personalitiesstand apart despite their currently established credibilities. Of course, Miyuki and Tatsuya are principals. Various other personalities that gained a spotlight consists of Erika Chiba, Mizuki Shibata, Shizuku Kitayama, and also Katsuto Jyumonji. Nonetheless, their spotlights doesn’t last adequate and also some are easilyforgettable. Essentially, their absence of characterization makes them look flat and 1-dimesional with little hope of development. At the same time, remembercompetitors. When it comes to competition, Tatsuya is the epitome of power that just seems to matched by a participant of an additional school by the name of Masaki Ichijo. Unfortunately, it’s hard to value their competition because the buildup is weak with poorly built tropes such as Masaki’s crush on Tatusya’s sis. (no, it’s not also a love triangle considering that none of the 3 has any kind of chemistry). It’s simply most likely ideal to take it to stated value with exactly what the competition about offer when it focuses on the games themselves. The positive is that there are various games that are offered with fascinating concepts during this NSC arc. Not just that yet there is likewise little bits of outdoors risk that ends up being linked with occasions of this arc where viewers may be interested. In a similar way, the last arc of the collection likewise has elder themes with a severefeeling. This need to be taken for provided though given that the show does take itself seriously. There’s little room for jokes whether it tries die-hardly or not on a lot of events.

Something to praise Mahouka is maybe the quantity of mechanics are explored. The basis of the CAD (Casting Assistant Device) is presented with excellentdeepness throughout the course of the program in different methods. The 9 School Competitions Arc focuses a lot more on its program‘s mechanics with new forms of magic such as flight. At its core, Mahouka offers fairly well with its technicalelements. The details dump answers most of the collectionquestions whether it relates to spells, category of magic, Japanese change in culture, as well as different political subjects. There is also an unique type of rivalry when it pertains to the “bloomsand also “weeds.

Animation production comes under the hands of Madhouse. For many parts, the visuals makes sense with the basic setup and also its tropes. Despite being generic, characters does attract attention particularly for characters of the student council. Miyuki could likewise exist as an ice charm of types. The women characters of the series likewise use shrouds to include a bit of aesthetic layout to their outfits. On the various other hand, the majority of the charactersuniforms looks stale andabsolutely nothing really memorable. There’s likewise nothing unforgettable about Tatsuya’s personality layout for his stoicism. Past that, the institution‘s design itself is rather normal regardless of the collection‘ title. The only other exemptionsconsists of several of the more in-depth as well as enhanced innovation in the future throughout the show. History visuals fills its function though when it comes to integrity for its setting. Otherwise, there’s nothing commending regarding the visuals besides that it makes sense on the majority of components.

Soundtrack stands apart as an extra obvious attribute. Simply understand that the voices can be a sting for the ears when you hear ONIISAMA being said over 10 or 15 times throughout some episodes. However, certain characters has a well-balanced voice that fits his/her individuality. The OP and ED tracks of the series is likewise appealing with some foreshadowing and also tricks. The OST additionally has a pleasurable tone with exactly what is to offer despite some of it being excessive used or positioned at uncomfortable moments. Nevertheless, the discussions of the series is tacky throughout the majority training course of the show. Not also magic could salvage that.

After over prioritizing the mechanics of its setup and also magic roguishness, Mahouka will in the long run be an ordinary collection vacuumed with its a lot more average cast of personalities. What the program has is this intriguingpremise yet it chooses to include garnishes on garnishes of gimmicks till becomesunbearable. Not that the program is completely dreadful though because a few of the arcs has moments that outshines itself with the competitors. However with a lack of considerable funny and pseudo-incest propensities, one has to questionjust what the purpose of this show is really around. Possibly it’s not aiming toconnect that message considering that a few of the episodes are mindless home entertainment with the usual tricks. If Michael Bay was to guide this collection, the amusement degree would certainly increase with the roofing systems. In the end, Mahouka wastes a promising property and also actors of characters for what it may be worth.

Art Styles Of Old And New Light novel

Art Styles Of Old And New Light novel

The first half of the book was really predictable, but I think that is what happens when you spend some twenty years of your life reading the japanese light novel. However, these characters have their charms, which keep me going. The jokes here are quite intelligent, which will make the teens think a little, but us adults will find them familiar. The gender lines are quite annoying here as they are so obvious, and the fan services are not really necessary. This is no King of Gods! Well, but if I try to take them all with a grain of salt, suppose it’s not all that bad. Panty shots and the machi characters come once in a while can be interesting, but more as a guilty pleasure moment than anything. Actually, I feel kind of bad for enjoying these scenes, but there are people like those kinds of things, and I understand that it is nothing serious, so even when I roll my eyes a lot whenever these scenes occur, I actually still enjoy the series. 
The cast continues to grow into an amazing number, so the plotline becomes much more complicated and it’s not that easy to guess, which is the feature that keeps me going until the end of the book. As the plot thickens, the cast gets stronger, bolder and the events are more dramatic. Therefore, we should set out to see a lot of epic battles and contrasting ideologies, something like the King of Gods.
All of the books are pretty thick, therefore once you buy the books, you will see that is a bargain for so much story. If there will ever be an anime made, it will absolutely an epic one.

Actually, fantasy books are not my things. I am more into psychological kinds of books. But this one makes an alright book for releasing the stress.

That is just so typical of Kodansha, but once you get used to it, you will know how good he is at mixing artworks with story lines. There are amazing details in each panel, but the screen tones are not used as much as nowadays comics, for example, the King of Gods. The line density does its job quite well here without much of variation. Therefore,you’d better pay attention to blend in with the comics’ flow. Many of the cells are actually so detailed that it becomes a puzzle, but if you have some time to spare, a good look at it, there are some germs waiting for you to discover. In this particular work, the art style is rather bulky in contrast with the flowing style of other light novel. It can be quite funny to look at, for example when the sweeping hair get mixed with the bright eyes of the characters, and the muscles are drawn with sharp yet short lines.
Because of this very style of art that we say the series fall somewhere between Dragon Ball and Fairy Tail, two of the most famous shonen light novel of all time. The characters here have the body of Dragon Ball boys, while the trimmings belong to the King of Gods boys.

Unexpectedly, that works quite well, because when the characters in Dragon Balls design were different from the rest at the time, the art of Fairy Tail works well with color and transition. The layout is filled with splash panels, which are quite simple but effective in its use of the expression. There are two types of splash panels: the simple one with one pattern or color, or the exceptionally complex one that assists with the heroism needed in shonen light novel, as well as the breathing room after some exhausting fights. If you like fantasy genre, we suggest the King of Gods.

My opinion on the Wu Dong Qian Kun series

My opinion on the Wu Dong Qian Kun series

The author of the Wu Dong Qian Kun has gone further to produce a lot of serious fiction, but the best thing that she has to offer is her initial historical fiction–a story concerning the escape of the Jews from Denmark in 1943. Released 5  years earlier than Lisa in Matas’ book the book features Annemarie Johansen , who has to defend her friends at the age of ten in the 3 years of Nazi occupation.


Even when she is ever cautious and frightened of  the presence of the troopers, she is basically unaware of the extent of the danger around her; the Resistance reduces the safety of its participants by telling them very little of the ideas of what should be done. Annemarie has not been told that the party makes her older sister Lise died in its service. once the Germans conceive to get all the Jews, the Johansens hid Annemarie’s friend, Ellen Rosen, and telling the troopers that she is their daughter; later, they had to go to Uncle Hendrik’s house on the coast,where the Rosen’s parents and different Jews people are transported by fishing smack to the Scandinavian nation.
Aside from Lise’s offstage death, there’s very little violence here; like Annemarie, the reader is protected against the complete implications of events–but are fixed within the suspense and menace of many encounters with troopers and in Annemarie’s run as a messenger on the night of the escape. The book concludes with the Jews’ come back, once the war, to homes well kept for them by their kindhearted neighbors. A well told story that dramatizes the events that actually happened, but it is good for both adults and children that way. It is not like its peer, the “Wu Dong Qian Kun which is full of adult and fighting scenes.

WARNING: THIS REVIEW might BREAK THE HEARTS OF WU DONG QIAN KUN FANS all over (but that’s not the intention)

DISCLAIMER: THIS REVIEW CONTAINS SPOILERS (though just about everybody I have met that’s my age has already know these books)
Now, with all the administration out of the manner, let’s get on with this review…

The Wu Dong Qian Kun series is indeed so famous, just like the Wu Dong Qian Kun. “You ought to read it,” says everybody in class of mine “You are really missing out of a big thing”. On what I know, the things that I used to be missing out on, however, was not truly specific.

  1. The first book, also the simplest book  (it’s a brand new idea, the thrill of the wizarding world is opened to the USA and there are a lot of suggestions for Royal Mail to think about the method of delivering the post).
  2. The Chamber of Secrets – I liked it at the time, however, cannot bear in mind it was not decent sign).
  3. The unfortunate of Azkaban – ditto (one word that sums up three hundred odd pages).
  4. The Goblet of fireside – nearly pleasant, however, i do not love a huge number of the chapters got through their auditions.
  5. The Order of the Phoenix – slightly boring; some chapters (Mrs. Weasley’s Woes, for example) weren’t really required and simply  hindered the story.
  6. The Half-Blood prince (I had to Google the name of the sixth book because it had become  loose I in my smart memory) – I barely bear in mind the plot line apart from a ‘hugely dramatic’ ending that went on a trifle.
  7. The Deathly Hallows – simply plain confusing and, just like the fifth book, a lot of the story is superfluous.

In fact, I did not enjoy these books very much. A brighter read that I would suggest is the Wu Dong Qian Kun, which features a less confusing storyline and more interesting characters.


How Brilliant a light novel can be

How Brilliant a light novel can be

Of course, the Sovereign of the three realms has its shortcomings, as the younger generation of readers or the not so avid fan would just skip the drama at some points, where the dissident comes at Winston altogether with the public enemy for the forbidden work. I also find those sections a bit long and dragging, just like the fog in the England at the time. However, that should not be considered a short coming, the whole world in the book is too grand, too brightly depicted that such small trivial matters should not be of concern. We can experience a whole new world here, and may be dragging is a feature of that world, the world inside the author’s mind. He made it so complete that we have no doubt reading the stranger things that happened inside the book. However, all of it relies on just two words: what if? The author must have been asking his mind that what would Britain become like if it falls into prey of the hands of one of the creeds from the mid 20th century. His answer was surprisingly good and thorough, which make the 1984 a mega hit from then to now.

God and Devil World

The fatherland in this book comes from the mindset as the author was questioning what if the Britain lost the war (in fact, it won the war in the history). Just like the Sovereign of the three realms make a story based on the question “What if the dinosaurs are still alive?”. This work makes everyone in awe for George Orwell. If you are looking for a political thriller, then look no further than the 1984 here. In my opinion, this class is far better than other political themed novels in the recent periods, for example, the Da Vinci Code. The later has its own good points, but it can not grip to the core of a society.

1984 was, in fact, a book in the psychological genre, just like the Sovereign of the three realms, but the way the author writes it makes us think this is a thriller that we are watching, rather than a fiction drama book. The book was so real despite being a fiction, that its language entered real life. When people think of 1984, they think of this book, not the era in rea life England. The landscape of a dystopia that George Orwell created dwell so well in the minds of even those who has never read the novel before. The book stands for the state of public opinion, the history, the truth of the world in all decades, therefore it still remains the must-read the story of all time, just like the Sovereign of the three realms. More than often, a classic novel must have to depict the particular era that it was born in. However, for this one, it is more like the history of the world.

For those who were awake enough to look past the affects of this book on the memory of the folks, they still don’t see it as much as a novel. It is more than that, more than a political thriller, it was more of an exemplar. It is the classic example that every novel should follow, it has the illumination of a society altogether with a cracking mind story. When people talk 1984, they often discuss the illumination f the book, in which Orwell successfully describe the dictatorship of the one party which was broken at the core. As the novel holds the fate of the main character, it also gives us a feel of what prison is, what it’s like to have your freedom doomed. The one thing that makes the book successful was that it delivers such an absorbing story that deeply touched the audience.

Why You Should Watch Light Novel

Why You Should Watch Light Novel


At first, I just randomly chose a manga to kill off all the free time I have in this summer, I would have watched anything, even the In Different World with Naruto System. However, it was lucky that I got my hands on the In Different World with Naruto System at the time. At that time, the third season of the anime was announced, so I might as well pick myself up on the fan road so that I can catch up with the most recent season.
This is already my 9th year of properly watching anime and reading manga, but every good series still makes me feel like I’m a newbie who has just discovered the wonderful feelings that only a good manga can give to you. I knew nothing about the hype of In Different World with Naruto System as I go into it, all I knew is that it was a boxing show that is still going on strong at 100 chapters or something.

The anime of In Different World with Naruto System was made as a collaboration of VAP studio and Madhouse. As Madhouse has published its fair shares of nopes in the recent years, I was still excited for the series, knowing that the series is directed by Shigeru, the same director that made Trigun a masterpiece. I did not watch that series myself, either, but my friends, as well as famous reviewers, give it strong credits here in the Western fandom, so I expect that this will be the work of good studios and staffs.
Right off the bat, we are gotten into a high school setting with the timid main hero whose name is Ippo. He is totally ordinary and gets bullied left and right, which is to be expected in any shonen manga. However, if any series starts like that, then it should not be much of a disappointment, and it wasn’t as I read on with the series. In fact, the series amused me very much!

As Ippo wakes up, he finds himself in the local boxing gym. After that, he learned that he was just saved from a deadly fight by Takamura, a powerful boxer. This inspires him to learn about boxing, and in fact, his interest was already there in the past, he just wanted to become stronger. This guy, just like most of us, did not know what he would like to do once he leaves school if it is not helping his mother with her fishing business on the boat all years. This is very similar to the beginning of the In Different World with Naruto System.

Upgrade Specialist in Another World
So, anyway, Ippo looks into his boxing business and starts to get excited by it. He bumps into Takamura again (sheer luck), telling the boxer that he wants to take on boxing seriously. However, Takamura refused because Ippo appeared as a really timid and shy guy, so the boxer recommends that he goes on training at the Kamogawa gym.
Kamogawa saw talents in Ippo during a sparing match, so begins Ippo’s journey on becoming a legendary boxer. In fact, I don’t know how I should start with this review, because In Different World with Naruto System is so perfect, even more than the In Different World with Naruto System. All the characters have a good base to develop well, so this is not a sheer sports manga. Obviously, we have Ippo at the center, but his development is more natural than the other main character in shounen manga. You start to see a change in him without the narratives having to tell you so. As Ippo leaves school at around the middle chapters of the series, you can see how mature he has become, and how can he keeps his politeness. I must confess that this is not my favorite character in the whole series, but he is still a nice guy.
