THIS IS A NOVEL ONLY DISCUSSION POST. DO NOT DISCUSS ANYTHING BEYOND THIS VOLUME.
----------------------------------------

Finally finished the first volume today and i have too say this was amazing, it was a bit confusing after the ending of chapter 11 but i think most people should be able to get the gist of what was going on, definitly looking forward to how this story will progress from now on.

This volume really deserved an award, the author's prose for garterbelt is beautifully written, I'm serious.

Anyway, the story's setting and structure is awesome. In a world so twisted and yet the way of the execution of these guys struggling to live proudly have now been etched as a sublime tale to within my memories.

And most of the characters are amazingly evocative, it's rare for me to make a statement of having a favorite character out of the first volume but I have to say that I'm really impressed with Seo and Lena.....Makes me think that it's quite sad that a few from the squadron died without having any particular words in this novel, though it also strengthen the theme of wars that tragedy don't know how to knock on someone's life.

And, I didn't expect a heroic comeback at the end, that was tear jerking. With the evolving Legion, another country, more comrades, more high tech weapons and more actions, this novel oozes a very high potential.

Was an interesting first volume, interesting main characters, great writing and composition, somewhat reminiscence of the muv-luv series. That, however makes it lack originality.


Still, the setting is really VERY well done. It has good potential, need to focus on the other characters too imo. Was well worth of my 7 bucks,possibility going for volume 2.

This novel is a work of art so far; I feel like at some point it will exceed my expectations of the Monogatari series.

It's implied they were rescued by the nation that overthrew the empire. They left their Juggernauts behind because they were probably damaged beyond repair, and to also give Fido friends to rest with.

Yeah, I got Muv Luv Alternative vibes from this series and that's why I liked it. Can't wait to read vol 2 and beyond.

I as light novel reader, was looking for something with military and/or mecha included in it, getting rest of all those Isekais and Fantasy. So far I only found this in store, expecting nothing more then average sci-fi war novel. And my, there are no such things as casual war novels, this was surprisingly hard to read, with plot twist pointing where I expected to be, then twisted to another level. I expected less 86 survivors and Republic to carry on, maybe only one, Shin, to get back, in last page, first time, face to face seeing Lena. First one to survive and getting citizen ship back. But more and more I read, I knew, this will end more grimly... Well, in the end they did it and not at same time.

8/10 nihilists would read again. Let's see what volume 2 and 3 will have for me.
