This week for Serial Saturday I’m covering a real oddball series. It’s Kuro’s Days Chapters 1-13 by Branya!
Plot Synopsis: I was a 30-year-old good for nothing, but because I had run out of food, I had to rely on my only hope. Expired instant noodles… When I finally awoke, I found myself as my loli game character from the game Skyrim in a magical cyberpunk world. I could tell that this new life was not a game and it would be a struggle just to survive. I experienced too much unreasonableness in my life. This time, I will absolutely live a happy life in this new world. Huh? You say instant noodles don’t expire? I also believed that, but in reality, they can….
Plot: Like I said, an oddball series. Honestly this is a self insert fiction that takes the main character’s abilities from Skyrim. It’s not that great, amusing at times, but not that great.
Characters: The entire cast is pretty odd, and while they aren’t lacking depth, they don’t have a ton of it either. Also Kuro is a huge pervert, so if that is a deal breaker you’ll really want to stay away from this series.
Overall: You can find a lot better series out there, but you can also find worse ones. This has it’s own amusing moments, but it’s got no overall plot, and really just showcases the protagonist’s daily life as she gets used to the new world she finds herself in.
For those who like: Sci-Fi, Fantasy, Slice of Life, Action, Adventure.
Not for those who don’t like: Any of the above, mediocrity, or perverted lead characters.
