Light Novel Recommendation XV

Manga Hunter here with some more light novel recommendations.

The Lazy Swordmaster by: 초록

I finally managed to kill the demon lord. Can’t I rest a bit now? Just leave me alone. Let me rest.

Meanwhile, new enemies are rising from the shadows…

(summary from Light Novel Bastion)

This light novel doesn’t have many chapters yet, but just the few chapters I read made me follow this story.


Seven Unfortunate Lifetimes All Due to a Moment of Impulse by: Jiulu Feixiang

Xiao Xiang Zi, a cloud spirit In heaven, and Chu Kong mess up the red strings of fate by accident during their brawl.

As a consequence they are sentenced to be a fated couple in the mortal realm for 7 lifetimes as a punishment for not getting along with each other.

However Xiang Zi sneakily reincarnates without erasing her memory, and unlike Chu Kong, she retains awareness and uses it to her advantage.

(summary from volaretranslations)

This novel is complete and looking at the title you would think this is a tragedy, but it really isn’t unless you count the deaths of the characters, but they do reincarnate, so no problem and jealous scenes are quite enjoyable in this one along with love fights. Heh, heh.


Chu Wang Fei by: Ning Er

She, the prime minister’s daughter, was timid and cowardly. Because her engagement fell through, and her reputation was ruined, she was pressured to spill her own blood in the palace hall! Once again opening her eyes, the cowardice had vanished, replaced by coldness, causing others to be intimidated at first glance. Yet no one realized, she was not her.

(summary from Novels Reborn)

I am still reading this because I am waiting for an ultimate revenge scene. The romance is slow in this one though, but the main character is what got me hooked.


Those are my light novel recommendations for now. As always, please support the creators of these works and the translators when you can.

San Japan Convention 2016

All righty then, I went to SanJapan Convention in San Antonio over the weekend and I have to say that it took me a while to find the positives, since I have discovered that there are really rude people in this world. When I first entered the convention with my mother I was fine and even got some pictures of some cosplayers (Pictures of cosplayers will be located in Cosplay page).

When I was entering the Vendor area was when things started to get bad for me. There are two paths: Exit and entrance. Simple enough. I saw a vendor stand I was interested in and took a quick peek, but the volunteer at the door told me to move and that I was not to enter. I told him that I was just peeking (I was not even entering through that part) and then he told me not to block the path (I was standing in an area that was not blocking the path).  I was quite peeved about that, but I still entered in the right path.

I went to a one Vendor stand that was selling mystery boxes, but I didn’t see the information and asked what the mystery boxes might have. One of the workers of this vendor stand pulled out a sign that was covered by merchandise and shoved it in my face. WHAT A JERK! You are supposed to show good customer service, not treat them like idiots.

I ran into other misfortunes, but I better not mention them, since I might make some of you hate this convention, so now to the positives.

I went to the Funimation vendor stand and of course nearly feinted at the prices of DVDs, but then I saw a brown box labeled $20. I was told it was a box filled with DVDs that were priced $20 each. It seemed like a decent price, so I looked through them and my eyes instantly lit up. I found two DVDs that I have been searching for a long time: Devil is a Part-Timer Complete Series & Code:Breaker Complete Series. They were usually too expensive online ranging from $30-$50. These DVDs were a Blu-ray and DVD combo for $20, so very much a great deal. I bought them on the spot and then went to look at other stands.

I found token machines and spent nine dollars on tokens to try my luck with the cute miniatures. I won miniature bakery bread. I was also given a panda keychain from one of the attendees. My mother offered to pay her, but the girl said it was a gift, since she already had a duplicate of the keychain.

20160907_005515

I went to another Vendor stand and bought one Yu-Gi-Oh! Card because it was cute and I bought it for a few cents since it was bent. Cuteness is justice. I remembered my nephew and decided to buy him a Pokémon card, so I looked through them and immediately saw one that my nephew would love: Gyarados. It was a dollar, but it was present for my nephew, so it was acceptable. I looked through other Yu-Gi-Oh! Cards, but the only one I wanted was Injection Fairy Lily, but she was WAY too expensive. $40 dollars for a card is too much. I’ll find her cheaper somewhere else.

20160907_005753

The last thing I bought were two manga: the last volume of Fushigi Yuugi: Genbu Kaiden & volume 18 of Itsuwaribito. I would have bought more manga, but I was on a strict budget this time.

I went to three panels, but the first one I went to was a little too boring for me, since it was repeating what I already heard from the cosmetic expert on my birthday. I left after the first slide of the PowerPoint. The other two panels were Anime Games in the form of game shows like Jeopardy and Deal or No Deal. I almost qualified for the first game, but I messed up on the Shakespeare related question. I had no idea that an anime called Othello existed. I watched the game and when it came for the audience prizes (a chance for prizes to be given to audience members), I participated and lucky me, I won a prize: 250 free pachinko balls for the pachinko games on the top floor.  As for the Jeopardy game, I only watched and learned some interesting anime information. Out of the panels, I enjoyed the first game I nearly took part in.

Hosts of the Panel for the Anime Game Show

20160903_185213

Two time Winner for the Anime Game Show

I played Pachinko afterwards…I totally sucked at it.

I then played a game where I had to hold a light and tried to protect it. I was stupid and put my own light out, but the game was fun and I am seriously thinking of trying to get it…when I figure out the name of the game.

Well that was my experience with the convention and sadly, I don’t plan to attend it next year because of the misfortune during the convention (positives not included in the misfortunes).

Sunday, I just went to explore San Antonio like the Alamo and the Ripley attractions, while also hunting for Pokémon.  (I also hunted for Pokémon during the convention.)

As a side note: I had to change hotels since Expedia screwed up the reservation. Never using their service again.

 

Recommendations for you guys to enjoy

Here are some recommendations for you guys to enjoy, while I am at the convention starting this weekend.
