This week, a marathon of works published on Krytykal: Alice Tale, Only Sense Online (OSO), and Daybreak. I actually started reading all 3 of these this week, OSO being my favorite. The common theme of genderbender was present in all 3 novels as well, where most characters felt very effeminate (even when denying it). In particular, I tend to favor OSO a lot since the main character plays the game ‘casually’. But if it weren’t for the MMO game theme, I could easily see the story being a slice of life-genre and still enjoy its content. Daybreak strongly resembles Zero no Tsukaima, I’m not sure what to think but I don’t think anything new was really introduced within the story. Alice Tale is hard for me to describe. The main character gets turned into a girl and lives in a game world, but (s)he doesn’t feel worried about it and accepts life almost immediately. I might have missed it somewhere, but I don’t think that the main character has any particular end goal that (s)he’s driving towards. Well despite saying all this, I still enjoyed reading Alice Tale and Daybreak. I believe there are several chapters of Daybreak volume 2 released but I’ll hold those off until later.
My daily readings of Tate no Yuusha has also continued, where he continues to expand his village. He gets a new mole slave for dexterous tasks and deals with a monster modifying lady who has a crazed view in life as long as it benefits her. Nothing really memorable happened, maybe this is an intermittent peace time before the next arc of the story.
Overlord story continues into the new volume, where the main character has begun exploring the new world he now resides in as an adventurer. In the picture, Nabel (the battle maid) actually looks quite cute, but looks very different from her standard battle maid form. Another interesting fact is that she also has 30 unallocated job levels in ‘other’. Maybe thats 30 levels of cooking, cleaning, and other maid-duties. I look forward to the continuation of the chapter!
