And this little girl, who prioritizes over anything else efficiency and her own career, will become the most dangerous being amongst the sorcerers of the imperial army...

While the fan-translation effort is fairly slow for this light novel, the pure quality of both the actual content and the translation effort is nothing short of stellar. To get a good idea on how Youjo Senki reads, take a read of the prologue and the first chapter. Those two chapters sum up exactly how it is going to read. The language and concepts used can be a bit difficult to read through which unfortunately makes the fan-translation difficult.

The knowledge of the author shines through and the plot is very well thought out. Normally, in light novels with the 'reincarnation' trope, the character makes the read more

A very hardcore and concrete story among the vast amount of light novels which are 'sexually-polluted'.

This novel series is noteworthy for readers who have at least some interest in stories of wars and battles. The writer's comprehensive knowledge of war histories can be known through the detailed battle plans explained and the various examples of past battles quoted.

What makes this novel appealing to me is that the story has largely eliminated the popular 'naive' characteristic of most protagonists in other novel series. The realistic inclination of Tanya (Both male/female protagonist of this story) will be giving readers a feeling of fulfillment reading how read more

I won't mince words, this is a deeply irresponsible work. I wanted to see it through, but I dropped it after much deliberation.

Youjo Senki is the tale of an objectivist who is reborn as a child soldier in a imperial nation that is a mix of WWI and WWII era Germany geopolitics and military, but technology is supplanted with magic. The main character, who is renamed Tanya, is the picture of Japanese neoliberalism and the central "punchline" of the story is that her result-oriented pragmatism is instead seen as fierce patriotism and ideal military prowess by her superiors. Tanya has the foresight of extensive knowledge read more

"Kind Mr. Josef was worried.
The expectations of all who believed in him were weighing on his shoulders.
Thinking only of the people’s happiness, he thought it was time to work hard
at developing the Federation.
But…
Its citizens, spoiled by his kindness, only fell into decline.
How awful!
...
What in the world is this job?
The answer:
The environmentally friendly job of counting trees in Sildberia.
It was work that soothed the tired people’s hearts with the power of nature
and would surely protect the environment as well.
People could enjoy forest bathing while gazing up toward the clear starry sky
while spending their days devoted to this noble task.
It was truly labor by the people, for read more
