  1. Clephas

    [Edit] 4 WNs

    Niito Dakedo Hello Work ni ittara Isekai ni Tsuretakareta This is a WN by Katsura Kasuga. An unemployed NEET named Masaru goes to Hello Work (the official Japanese employment agency) and signs a contract for what he thinks is playing a video game, and instead he gets dropped into a world about to be destroyed (or so he is told) and told to test Itou's (apparently that world's god) new skill system for twenty years (incidentally, the amount of time until the end of the world). If he survives the twenty years, he'll be sent back to Japan with twenty years worth of six-figure pay to arrive
  2. Irotoridori is the only surprise on that list... I'd more or less given up on seeing anymore Favorite games being translated. Hopefully, Sakura Moyu will come eventually (Favorite's best work).
  3. *a member of the Untranslated Liberation Army aims his Nihongorifle at Zakamutt and fires off a round of depleted Japoranium into Zaka before jumping into the sea of information* On a more serious note, I'm glad to see this come out where people can read it other than us elitists.
  4. (Note: To be clear, this is an unfinished VN with over 500 chapters) Hell Mode is the WN I recently began (and finished to the current point) reading. It is another reincarnation one, where the protagonist was a heavy gamer who is one of those types that loves high-difficulty setups, reveling in grinding, conquering dungeons, and generally indulging in his desire to see more. He goes to a website where he gets the choice of difficulty and his job, and he picks the hardest difficulty Hell Mode (where everything is 100x harder than Normal Mode) and the high-difficulty job, Summoner.
  5. Honestly, I think you'd be best off looking for it on amazon, since it came out when Jast USA was the only major localization company. https://www.amazon.com/Phantom-Inferno-Artist-Not-Provided/dp/B00006JU7J/ref=sr_1_2?crid=290VN3B43AZ6K&keywords=phantom+of+inferno&qid=1652171878&sprefix=phantom+of+inferno%2Caps%2C111&sr=8-2
  6. Omake Tenseisha is the story of a girl who lived through hell on earth and had a new hell waiting for her when she was tossed aside by the gods and reincarnated again. For those who have read a Snake's Life or Kumo, this will be a story that is somewhat familiar. The protagonist is fairly similar to Kumoko (naturally ruthless, tends to think cheerfully most of the time, ends up eating everything that is her enemy, lol). The story itself is one long 'driven out of a town', 'ate everything that got in my way', 'accidentally screwed up the gods' plans', etc. Basically, the protagonist's
  7. Devils Devel Concept's protagonist is as far from a doormat as it is possible to get. It's not translated though. Ayakashibito is translated and the protagonist, while he tends to cry a lot more than most, is suitably strong-willed and is willing to do what is necessary based on the situation. Phantom of Inferno's protagonist is a brainwashed assassin. The only unfortunate aspect of the game is that the only English version is a weird DVD that plays like a video. On the upside, that version has all the lines - dialogue or not - voiced. Grisaia's Yuuji and the Phantom Trigg
  8. Japanese and Asian Mythology Waka-sama no Zasuru Sekai Kamisama no Shippo LoveKami (the original) Natsu no Owari no Nirvana Yami to Hikari no Sanctuary Madohi Shiroki no Kamikakushi Ayakashibito Western/Mixed Aoi Tori (Christian) Eushully's Dir Lifyna games (in a roundabout way, since most of Earth's gods are dead when the series begins) Tokyo Babel The Soleil series by Skyfish (primarily Norse, with some other pantheons mixed in and Cthulhu Mythos at times)
  9. To be blunt, this WN is a straight-out slave harem story in another world. The protagonist is a run-down salaryman who escaped a black company workplace only to end up summoned to a world where the king was raring to put his summoned heroes to work. Quite naturally, the protagonist wants nothing to do with this, so he arranges to get himself thrown out of the castle and goes off on his own. The protagonist, like most summoned heroes, has a unique skill (typical of this kind of story). In his case, it allows him to take apart and restructure the skills of himself and his slaves (the f
  10. This WN, also published in the West as Failure Frame, is a variant on the 'isekai summoning' genre where the summoner is malicious toward the summoned. This particular sub-genre has become more common of late (since the straight-up good people summon heroes out of desperation setup has gotten stale), but this one stands out to me for the sheer evil and brutality of the antagonist (the goddess) and the protagonist (who is probably the epitome of an anti-hero in its most brutal form). One thing I liked about this story was that Mimori Touka (the protagonist) is extremely self-aware. He
  11. https://ncode.syosetu.com/n7471fo/34/ This is a very short WN I read on a whim over the course of a few hours. It is complete for what it is, and what it is isn't what you'd think. The protagonist is a reincarnator who was reborn in a game world, where he became a rootless traveling mage, sightseeing in the fantasy world he knew from the game. One day, he comes across a collapsed Dragonkin girl, who turns out to be the demon lord from the game. This story is one of romance and redemption, as a clumsy man approaching middle age does his best to be a friend to a girl who has lost ev
  12. This series is a funny little one by the same author as Surviving in another world with Goshujinsama (not to my taste, as the protag is M and a bit of a hetare, but it is really popular in Japan). The protagonist of this story is randomly transported to another world by a mischievous evil god (Pretty sure her/his real name starts with Nyarl, like most evil gods of this type in otaku stories) and left to his own devices. Taking advantage of his high growth rate and ability to pick skills to grow (something the natives don't have), he tries to live freely... but life isn't going to let him be.
  13. On another note, I love wunderwaffels. I just also enjoy stories where there is no wunderwaffel. I'm an isekai junkie in general... though it is a huge letdown when a real action story that is serious has a protagonist who is too overpowered for there to even be a struggle or strife. It's one thing if he ends up that way towards the end (like with Hajime in Arifureta Shokugyou), but most attempts to do serious plots and action with an op protagonist tend to fall apart near the end. The exception is when the main antagonist is just as op as the protagonist.
  14. He doesn't have a wunderwaffel... he is just ridiculously hard-working (training in his sleep, and twelve hours of training every day while awake).
  15. This particular WN series falls into the set called 'transference', as opposed to summoning or reincarnation. The protagonist, Takatsuki Makoto and his classmates freeze to death in a bus buried in an avalanche, only to wake up in another world, inside the Temple of Water, where it is explained to them that they have been saved by the mercy of that world's gods. They all receive skills and are more powerful than the natives... except for Makoto, whose status doesn't rise when he levels and only three skills 'Beginner Water Magic' 'Mental Stability' and 'RPG Player'. Since he has almost no m
