Thought I might as well tell you all about the only thing I currently use my tablet for. Reading light novels.
It started with Kinos Journey/Kino no tabi, I knew I would love them but didnt realise just how badly I would love them, but will fan boy about that another time.
While I found the Gakuen kino spin off entertaining at the start but became quite dull later on. An entire novel on a baseball game with predictable happenings just wasnt my thing
So I started looking for other almost random novels to give a go and some of them have been quite good. First I came across Silver cross and Draculea. A typical boy gets attacked by vampire though suffers zero damages or curses. You find out he is an Anti vampire human and you read to find out how, what, when and why. Might give the third novel a read to see if it gets any better as I kinda liked the first volume actually.
Wont spoil what the blue haired girl is. Pink haired is the main vampire. Oh and blonde girl is frankenstein… built to have babies with humans…. yeah…
Then Hikaru ga Chikyuu ni Itakoro. Which got me teary eyed. The circumstances and characters were very well written together. The deserved anger and sadness really came through for me. Long story short, ghost of schools pretty boy haunts schools delinquent (Only hes not a delinquent at all, he just gets judged by his constantly angry expression he cant help being born with). Said wrongly accused delinquent helps pretty boy with his dying regrets. Was quite sweet and heart wrenching in places.
Next came Heavy object. Which took me by suprise. Im generally not into military series, but the designs for the mecha/objects were mental and over 50 metres tall, the take on war was interesting, the situations were dire and the characters were nicely developed. All wars are now dependant on heavy objects, humans dont die anymore, guns and tanks are considered useless, until two nameless soldiers effectively destroy one themselves.
and looks like there is an anime for it this year and its the writer of Index/Railgun… did not know that.
Then moved onto Campione. Which I just found out had an anime a few years back. Will also quickly say that I am so impressed by the indepth information of greek (and other) mythology provided, which for me made the story as a whole much more impressive. Anyways basic plot is, main human guy managed to kill and take the powers of one of the most powerful gods with 10 different forms, who knows just how yet, gets pulled into battles by said blonde on the cover to help him learn his powers and help herself in some way. Will read more of this as I have really enjoyed this so far.
