  • It was a decent read and infinitely tamer novel compared to the author previous works, Atelier Tanaka and Nishino-kun, which had some questionable stuffs lying around. Well, the neighboor kid is kinda creepy, but this will be related to how she obtain power.

    The duality of story of fantasy world’s transaction and modern world’s esper conflict is neat. We dont get many novels about esper other than toaru series. And the fight on modern world in this series is undoubtly got more gripe than the fantasy world side, since the protagonist isnt always with peeps and he need to use his wits and negotiation skills to take care of things while trying to hide the variety of magic at his disposal as much of possible.

    As for now, the series has much less action than what I expected, as it leaned more on negotiation and transaction which highlight the protagonist old man’s wisdom, while peeps work as worst case measurement (brute force). But I believe it was just the beginning, laywork for bigger conflict later, since the protagonist made some connection to several powerful individuals which might give us insight to what direction the story would take.

    One thing I dislike is some of the protagonist’s choice of transaction goods. Like, seriously, transceiver? Any communication tool is pretty dangerous to be sold, even if the range is only a few meters. He thought it would be used of hunting hobby (which is stupid), but of course it would be used for wars and intel gathering. Once is okay, that was one time mistake. But he sold it again, even worse, to a major merchant from another country, which… I dunno…

  • Nice an update, guess I’ll be sleeping late tonight.

  • This is a good read, I’ll give it a 7.5/10.

    I first thought the peeps thing referred to people as in Sasaki and the people surrounding him. That sort of fits too though it’s really the name of the bird.

    Anyway unlike most LN’s this one is quite maturely written (although there is a tendency towards young girl (so far side) characters). Also the author doesn’t seem to be in it for the paycheck, not yet anyway. The first volume is packed with actual storytelling without dragging things out just to inflate the page count. You can just relax and read the story without getting frustrated due to bad writing practices.

    So yeah I recommend you give this one a go.

    • You praised this one quite a bit but still it’s only a 7.5 hu? I really want to know what sort of series you consider 9+ ?

      Mind recommending Mc some of your favorites.

      • My grading system works as follows: 1-3 bad, 4-6 mediocre, 7-9 good, 10 masterpiece.

        It’s “only” a 7.5 because it’s still a light novel. Well lets face it light novels are generally rather “light”. So it’s actually a pretty high score for a light novel. I mean the grading system also includes works from the likes of Brandon Sanderson and others that have produced some really good stuff (Sanderson’s Reckoners series for instance I can give a 9 for it’s gripping story told from a brilliantly executed first person perspective).

        Not sure what to make of that Mc bit in that last line there. Do you want me to list some of the more enjoyable LN series I’ve read?

        • Oops it was supposed to just be mind recommending me some of your favorite light novels yes, and your favorite books too.

  • synopsis looks interesting, I hope it’s good.

    • I think it’s got promise. It was only published last year of January and it already got an anime adaptation announcement. I’ll definitely read this one as well
