WN: Sairin Yuusha


Clephas

655 views

To be honest, Sairin Yuusha is one of the worst WNs I've ever read.  I kept reading until it cut off because I thought it would eventually get good, but the protagonist is weak and there is never any real progress with the heroine.  The story itself is a revenge story about a hero who is murdered by his own party right before he is about to fight the Demon King.  Thirty years later, he is summoned again and starts on a journey of revenge, forming an alliance with a former demon queen and generally wreaking havoc on his enemies in a world that he feels betrayed him.  

His revenge is pretty graphic - so those who like that kind of thing will probably get off on this - but, to be honest, he is so focused on the revenge part of his journey that he never really grows as a person until right before the author stopped posting it (literally in the last volume).  

If the writer had included some softer moments to cushion the constant 'push forward and get revenge', I would have liked it more.  I also would have liked it if the heroine's personality had fit her role in the story, but unfortunately, she often was the source of me being jerked out of my immersion in the story.

Seeing as you're reading lot of (or rather, only) Isekai WN recently, I'd recommend: https://ncode.syosetu.com/n0089bk/

Beginning looks generic (minus some foreshadowing), but it quickly becomes something far more interesting and is one of, if not the best use of an Isekai setting I read.

Also, not Isekai, but recently read: https://ncode.syosetu.com/n9310bv/

I found it to be a pretty good read and it should be a nice breather in between two isekai novels.

 

EDIT: While I'm here, guess I can give a few others.

https://ncode.syosetu.com/n9350eg/ is pretty nice with a MC who isn't strong but can use his head well. (main story is finished)

https://ncode.syosetu.com/n2273dh/ if you want some laidback isekai where everything is peaceful. (main story is finished)

I couldn't get into Heiwa Deshita.  The first one I read part of but put aside because it didn't match what I wanted at the time.  I'll look at the second one, eventually... I read a couple of Mobsekai-types already, but I'll keep it in mind.
