First things first, this is one of my favorite novels, and I've already read a lot of them, darker fantasy is definitely a theme worth to read, because of the more mature story-telling and well thought out realism.

"Shinigami wo Tabeta Shoujo" (The Girl Who Ate a Death God/Girl Who Ate Death) tells the story of a young, cheerful, but twisted girl seeking out revenge, one that clearly centers around a ruthless female lead. Little by little, as the journey progresses we come to know that Shera was only one more of those pitiful victims created by the corrupted parts of the war raging throughout the read more

TL;Dr: I like the novel, but it has some hiccups at the beginning. Nice ending and some adult storytelling.

Why should you read this novel?

First and foremost (as a rarity among LNs/WNs) the story is complete and has a satisfying ending. The concepts in this world are very grounded in reality with a low fantasy aspect for it being a classical Medieval Fantasy world. Some plot twists are good, and the ending especially really got me thinking.

What I love about this novel:
1. It is beautifully written! The title is literally what the story is about, a girl who ate a grim reaper-like existence and is now immortal. The flow of the plot from battles to character development to inner thoughts is perfectly paced.

2. The complex characters have serious yet soft moments. Because the MC has a bit of a twisted character due to her childhood experiences, that doesn't stop her from cherishing her subordinates/friends. The relationship/loyalty between the MC and subordinates that develop over the courseof survival/battles is poignant yet tragic. The feels are real.

3. Because of how complex yet read more

I enjoyed this story, it is by far a lot closer to being a regular book, which means its written better than most light novels.

I didnt like that the main character didnt really seem to progress much during the story. She remained pretty much the exact same throughout and I think that is a big missed opportunity. The side characters do progress some.

You can track the affect the MC had on others in the story but the villains werent really fleshed out, well none of the characters were too much.

This mostly consists of running from basttle to battle with time skips, and there wasnt any read more
