August 2019, scientists received extraterrestrial signals warning them of the catastrophes that will hit Earth.

Following it, various extraterrestrial life forms come into contact with the human species. People who are affected by these energies, called the Third Eye, develop mysterious powers. Some are able to move at the speed of sound, others possess a sword that is capable of even cutting steel, or those who are able to tear absolutely everything apart with their teeth.

We follow the daily life of Utsugi Minoru, a discreet 17-year-old teenager who obtained the ability he has always desired, the Solitude (code name lsolator), and Yumiko, a member of an organization that monitors these new superhumans.

However. the prowess given by Absolute Solitude results in endless battles for Minoru...

This review may contain very minor spoiler or no spoilers at all.
Zettai naru Isolator or The Isolator was adapted/turned from a web novel into a light novel. The web novel was written 10 years ago and went on a hiatus since then until it was picked up on 2014. Reki Kawahara, or should I say the writing machine, produced this piece of literature after working on two very successful novels, SAO and Accel World. I will spare you from the explanation since it's written above in the synopsis.

"The Isolator: Realization of Absolute Solitude," or "Zettai Naru Isolator," in Japanese, is the third published work, of Reki Kawahara. Like SAO before it, it was also a web-novel, that he decided to turn into a book.
This work is amazing. Even as an avid SAO and AW fan, I have to admit that it is thirty times better, than the previous works by Kawahara.

Truthfully, I believe that if it recieved an read more

(I have just finished the fourth volume of the series, which at the time of this review, is also the latest one published in both Japan and abroad.)

Reki Kawahara, the writer of the (in)famous “Sword Art Online” light novel series, has been a polarizing figure in the minds of many anime and light novel fans alike. While he undoubtedly has very good premises, they are often marred by poor execution and writing, which has made Kawahara notorious.

But nowadays, more and more people are beginning to see that Kawahara has begun to show great improvement in his more recent works. For instance, his reboot of read more

The story is about a 16 year old boy who is granted the power of a defensive shield from an orb that falls from space. The orbs "attach" themselves to their host by entering their bodies. They are classified as Jet Orbs and Red Orbs. Jet Orbs are black, and the people who have these orbs created an organization that hunt down and defeat humans with the Red orbs. The reason for this is because the humans with Red orbs gain an intense thirst for bloodlust. The powers that people get from these orbs all differ, based on the host's memories and desires.
