    I still recommend Tsuki ga Michibiku. Though the web novel version which is what is being translated hasn't been updated by the author since last summer. There's about 40 chapters left till the translated version catches up. The Light novel version is pretty much the same and is going to catch up to the web version soon, so maybe that'll take over for the web novel.

    Only other I'd recommend is Tate no Yuusha no Nariagari. The web version is very different than the published version though.

    Finished Konosuba volume 7, started volume 8

    I'll let this quote sum up my thoughts.
    Spoiler:

    "Hah... Hah I-I am Sold... A noble like me, sold to this man!

    To think, that, that I have to pay back with my body ...! Ahhh, what is with this situation....! Abducted from the scene in a princess carry...! This is... This is...!"

    "Darkness who was in my arms blushed in a way I have never seen before, and her breathing was so heavy that it seemed dangerous."

    Welp, the novels seem to be pretty straight adaptations with some fluff mixed in. I am probably going to skip or skim read the novel that covers the origin because fuck reading that. On novel 2 now.

    Volume 3 was indeed a flashback, skimmed most of it. Finished volume 4 as well. The worst part about reading ln's is reading the shit you already saw adapted, thankfully for me its only one more volume.

    Well shit, caught up on all the officially released Shield Hero light novels, I thoroughly enjoyed myself. Volume 9 comes out in 3 days, but I think I will hold off until I read another longer series to make the wait for the other volumes more tolerable.

    Started Arifureta, so far it seems like a typical isekai light novel shit with its own quirks, but this has to be one of the hardest books to read ever. Imagine your typical light novel trash, but everything is being explained through a narrator and not the MC, its taxing to read. Going to finish the first book to decide if I should drop it or not.

    Arifureta was hot garbage, but I couldn't put it down.

    Started reading some web novels, started Mushoku Tensei, currently on volume 21 and this is one of my favorite series I have ever read and give it a hearty recommendation. Also I read the shield hero WN because the LN deviates pretty heavily from the source material so I figured it was worth reading both. It was pretty good, but I think the LN is taking a more interesting path.

    Started reading more shit.

    Tensei Shitara Kyuuketsuki-san Datta Ken - A interesting story, but only 110 chapters translated and it got boring around the half way point, to the point where I was speed reading it for interesting bits. I don't really recommend.

    The Man Picked up by the Gods - Dropped/On hold for now, I think I made it to volume 4 or something. A trend I have been seeing is where a lot of these series start out strong but really started to fizzle out around volume two. I was pretty frustrated/bored with it, but when looking back I don't think I want to keep this forever dropped, it wasn't that bad.

    Sevens - Just started this, seems interesting enough for now.


    Its starting to look like some of my other series are starting to build up a bit, I heard overlord and danmachi are getting another novel soon and I think I will catch up with the other stuff when those drop.

    Kinda, but I think calling it "yet another isekai" is a disservice. Its a completely serviceable fantasy world without game mechanics and its a great adventure to read and is very heart warming. Its more if your looking for a good story and not so much about some mind blowing concept.
