This week for Translation Necessary Thursday I’m covering a series with a unique twist! It’s Tsuyokute New Saga Volume 01 by Abe Masayuki!

Plot Synopsis: To counter the unstoppable march of the demon army, the human empire sent a suicide squad deep into enemy’s territory to assasinate the Demon king. After a fierce and dangerous battle, Magic swordsman Kail finally managed to kill him. On the verge of death, Kail saw a curious relic which was in the possession of the Demon Lord. The relic sent him to the past before the invasion happened.

Plot: So yea this is essentially a novel where a New Game + occurs, but the main character is totally aware of what happens! The premise is awesome and I love the way the author pulls it off. It’s wonderfully done.

Characters: Kail has all his previous memories so when he see’s his childhood sweetheart and best friend it’s quite a shock to him. Said sweetheart and best friend are amazing characters in their own right, with Lize being an awesome brawler and Seran being a playboy swordsman. The rest of the cast is awesome, but since it’s just the first volume we don’t get to meet much of them!

Art: The artwork is pretty awesome, hopefully this series will get an Anime adaptation that isn’t total crap in the near future!

Overall: If you love fantasy or you are a gamer and love reading, you need to read this series.

For those who like: Gaming, Speedrunning in Gaming, Action, Fantasy, Harem, Romance, Amazing Cast of Characters, Excellent Plot, Fantastic Artwork.

Not for those who don’t like: Any of the above, but how can you hate all that?
