The Devil is a Part-timer! 1

“Borrowing an umbrella from you is a deep, deep wound to my personal virtue and honor! One that will never heal in thousands of years!”

The Devil King and his general Alciel fled from the world they tried to conquer when the Hero Emilia was overpowering them. And the two ended up in Tokyo, Japan. Now they have little to no magical power and they realize they need to adapt to the life of the Japanese. They get an apartment, they work, they buy necessities and food. And live a peaceful, yet financially difficult, life as Sadao Maou and Shiro Ashiya until Sadao one day meets the girl Emi Yusa. Continue reading

No Game No Life 3

A relationship of mutual trust going beyond normal bounds?–No. To put another person at the top of the list of elements that constitute oneself is not what is called trust. At this point, it was a condition for existence. These two, all metaphor and hyperbole aside, were truly–two in one. Warped. Broken. But, when you put them together, they joined as if so designed into a complete one. It defied comprehension.

9780316385190Sora and Shiro were transferred to the world Disboard where they are the King and Queen of Immanity – the human race. Their goal: Total World Domination. Next up is a game against the Eastern Union and they are waiting for a date for the game betting the entire race of Immanity, but something’s amiss… Where is Sora?

Is it Wrong to Try to Pick Up Girls in a Dungeon? 2

”Kid…! Do ya want to die?!”
”W-wait…just a minute. If you can just calm down…”
”Shaddup!! The hell is wrong with ya?! Is short stack there yer friend or something?!”
”N-never seen her in my life.”
”The why the hell are ya protecting that piece of shit?!”
”…B-because she’s a girl.”
”The hell are ya saying…!”
Really, what am I saying…? But I don’t think I have a choice. That’s what real men do, right? It’s normal to help a girl in trouble. Do I need any more reason than that?
”Fine… I’ll slit yer throat first, kid…!”

It was cold and empty. Tohko wasn’t there.
Tohko-whose braids had come unraveled and blown around wildly, who had gripped my arm, whose eyes had been filled with anguish, who had screamed at me and trembled.
When I recalled her pale face or her voice as she asked me, “Why?!” a scarring pain ran through my chest and my breath choked off.
“Why…?”
As soon as I’d spoken the word, my throat closed up, my nostrils flared, and my eyelids burned.
“…Why, Tohko…?”

nomura_BookGirlv7_TPTohko Amano is drawing away from Konoha Inoue because of her exams and she doesn’t have to come to school. But there is more than that. Tohko wants Konoha to write a novel, but that’s the last thing Konoha would like to do. He has decided to never write a novel! But slowly, slowly Konoha learns that there is more to Tohko than he has known. There’s a Tohko who he doesn’t know and he gets involved in the complicated life of the Amano-Sakurai family.

Nomura_BookGirlv8_TPAt the same time Konoha is trying his hardest to be a good boyfriend to his girlfriend Nanase Kotobuki, but it’s hard when he is torn between the despair Tohko gives him in her absence and the love he has for Nanase. Continue reading

Book Girl and the Wayfarer’s Lamentation

You know, Hatori.
I want to be a tree.
You laughed when I told you that before, it’s still the truth.
I really do want to be a tree.
If I were, when you fly through the sky, I would be in the place that’s closest to you and be able to look up at you.
And when you looked down at the ground, you might catch sight of me.
(…)
That’s why I want to be a tree.
I want to be a huge tree with its green leaves brilliantly lush and its limbs spread wide so that you’ll find me.
And when you get tired, I hope you’ll stop and rest on my branches.

A snake is in the swamp there.
Rich old spirit’s little girl
Get you up and set a trap
A bead of water ‘pon her neck.
Golden shoes upon her feet,
Call me this and call me that
To the mountain of the field, go, go, go…

14780627It’s summer vacation and Konoha Inoue is expecting a relaxing time without Tohko Amano, the president of the literature club and a book girl who lives off stories. Literally lives off of them, by eating them.

“So, I don’t believe in humans.”
-Just as he didn’t believe in himself.
“But I believe in their potential.”
-Just as he could believe in his sister.
“The potential of humans is infinite.It’s just that it’s infinite both in the positive and negative directions.”
Thus people could be infinitely wise, or infinitely foolish-and so.
“So it’s like, maybe, if I’m as foolish as possible, I’ll be able to catch up with my sister, who is as wise as possible.”

Sora and Shiro have been summoned from our world to Disboard, a world where violence and war don’t exist and everything is decided by games. The siblings have through a tournament of games taken the throne of the human race, Immanity’s, country Elkia, which is left with just the capital. Not only that, Sora and Shiro have declared war on the rest of the world.

A month passes and Sora learns that there is a race with girls who have animal ears and a tail and he decides that the Werebeasts are his next target. But for that he needs more information and the library of Elkia has been taken over by a Flügel… Continue reading

No Game No Life volume 1

“We are the weakest race!
We are those who, in endless cycles of history – devour the fattened strong!
Take pride! For we are the weakest – we are the most empty-handed! We are born with nothing – and we can become anything – we therefore are the strongest race!
– Come, let the games begin!”

23197324Sora, an 18-year-old virgin man, and Shiro, an 11-year-old genius girl, are a team that make up for a legendary gamer called ” “, or Blank (Kuuhaku in Japanese). None of the fit into society and they are shut-ins that always plays games.

One day they receive a mail with a link and a cryptic message:

Dear brother and sister, do you ever feel like you were born in the wrong world?

The link leads to a game of chess and Shiro plays and wins, with the support of her older brother. As a response, they receive a new mail, asking if they don’t find it hard to liv in the world. Then another email asking if they enjoy the world. And a third one telling about a world ruled by games.

The siblings reply and are removed from this world to Disboard – a place where war and violence does not exist. Everything is settled through games. Continue reading

“Now, go!”

With those words, Bell’s perception of time and space narrowed to a very thin line.
