So yeah, about that PAX post… eh, I got lazy and didn’t find a time when I felt like sitting down to write about it. So I didn’t :X I might just post all the pictures at some point, but I didn’t really have much to talk about on it, so I decided not to do a post.
Anyway, here are new light novels from September!
First there’s the next volume of Accel World, which is a series in the pile of I’m Going To Read It Eventually, But Not Right Now, And It’s Been X Years Since I Made That Declaration. Other series in the pile: Spice & Wolf, Index, Sword Art Online, Durarara, Baccano! This pile also includes 95% of the video games I’ve bought in the last 8ish years, lol. The light novels are well past the anime material, though, and Accel World is a lot more exciting than the other books in my pile, so I might end up getting to it sooner rather than later.
To the right we have the fourth Strike the Blood novel, the Labyrinth of the Blue Witch. If I remember correctly, this is the last full arc that was animated, since I believe the final anime arc was a short story or side story? I’m not caught up on StB regardless, so I’ll get to it when I get to it.
The meat of this package is definitely Overlord volume 2. Covering the Dark Warrior arc, 2 of 3 from the anime, I’ve already started reading it due to how good the first book was. The anime did a pretty good job with the adaptation, but what’s definitely missing is all the internal monologuing that Ainz does as he struggles to act as a proper dark lord while aware that this new world is changing him and that he constantly has to be an actor. I’m eager to see how his perspective changes as the story progresses, and how this gives insight into events I’ve already seen from the outside.
