The novel was actually pretty solid. The stories were pretty short but everyone on my Japan TL on twitter was buying this so no wonder.

#18's series title is the character names, written in kanji. So I'm not 100% confident that I got them right and they aren't some obscure pronunciation.

Yeah the LN is good. The protagonist is good, the heroine is good, the rivals are good

Pretty sure the anime isn't like the novel due to the derailing stuff o.O

OT: Wait, so there's a BNHA novel? Huh. Well I see then.

Other than that not much to add really.

Like if there was not enough chapters in manga, they start to produce novel of it.
