Glad it's doing OK, still haven't read vol 18, I'm waiting for some vols to accumulate so I can binge read them.

It's gonna take forever for this spin-off to get translated tho lol

im surprised you made it so far if the charas and magic system bore you o.o


Mahouka is really such a chore to read, even though I've enjoyed reading LNs like Index, Youjo Senki and Horizon.

I think a random post I've found from Internet perfectly illustrated what I see when I'm reading Mahouka.

that's pretty funny

but it's to be expected with world building (or idk readers who aren't familiar with some concepts)

What's the Shiba Tatsuya spinoff?

#1-Characters are stale as hell.
#2-Way too much nonsensical talking about nonsensical magic system etc...borefest.
#3-Characters pull out their tricks, tactics out of their ass.
#4-Vol-25...26?! what is he even writing there...seems more like milking a dried-out cow.

What he said, that should be volume 5, both in the main list and the bunko list.
