You got what I mean from the title. some people asked me for a detailed summary over the e-mails (as they wrote walls of text I deleted their comments), and also asked to write a post about it. Hence here you go~ I was seriously bored with just TL’ing!
Two people wrote comments and more than 6 people wrote on emails with some bad points about that SUMMARY of my upcoming novel (going to be Japanese, but maybe also English). Okay some of them just advised me somethings that I already had in mind. This is a genre I will write for the first time, I mean ones with magic and stuff.
So to actually answer the questions or critic comments let me write the stuff: look below.
- Some have said that it is like MKNR. I just don’t get how? If a sudden power that could cause global phenomenon occurs, obviously some powers would rise up to take control of it, even when a MC goes to another world, either there is King and Demons to control their population that can use magic and stuff, or there are big factions (sevens for instance) and no demon kingdoms that would control the magic-users. Even the factions in my novel will be somethings similar to governments and whatnot. There will also be a top person who controls them factions. (not going to reveal anytime soon)
Now if you people are saying my novel seems similar to MKNR because it has magic on earth then I believe you haven’t read many mangas, LN’s, WN’s, or not even seen many animes.
- a person gave me some points of advice that I already had in mind, but hadn’t written in the short summary, and I think other people might also have thought that. After all I got 3 e-mails with same stuff written!
Umm, first of all, the place is Earth which is not a magical world! It is a magic-filled world, meaning the magic abruptly appeared among people who can’t use magic. Hence it is obvious there are people who can use magic and who can’t.
Among those who can’t there are some rare people who have got talents in all fields as compensation, and are normal people and the other ones are just ‘purely’ normal people.
It is the norm for a magic-user to give birth to magic-wielder child, but Mitsuteru cannot, and is one of a kind in the whole world.
- There were also emails saying that Mc will be a wuss. Dense. Shithead and whatnot.
Let me answer you, MC is overly brilliant in using brains, enough to the extent of being able to easily manipulate others for doing stuffs not good or any sort. It’s not he can use magic, but uses his brains to work out things for cornering the person and finally taking over the person’s heart by giving the person a holding hand, and finally glossing the words to make do his work! Almost like what most politicians in our world do to the the weak people
He isn’t dense, I don’t like writing dense MC, it is just not my style to write those idiotic MC’s.
Mc is not a wuss, he is pure-bred pervert, and his whole family is. MC doesn’t hide that fact, will try to take advantages of his best friends (girls only) only to be slapped then say a punch-line! He also isn’t a wuss who would not kill, ‘cuz he resolves to kill other players in BATTLE OF DEATH game, and also the main person behind this ridiculous game.
- People said Japanese LN’s don’t explain much world-building? . Did they actually have read over 500+ LN’s present in Japan. Those are just the number of LN’s that have lots and lot of world-building. If taken all LN’s of all genres in Japan it will surpass 3k, damn I haven’t read them all!!
Now I like to add politics, battle strategies, war strategies, explain the world-build moderately and not too stuffily.
- This came from the person who gave me advices in ‘2’. This one is that appearance of other characters or MC is not revealed. When I read this I had my jaw drop. My mouth was agape. DAMN where would you read that sort of LN. The editors are surely not idiots to let such a novel be serialized.
- Some said why was he even made to join BATTLE OF DEATH? Why did he have to assassinate someone?
A single answer for both of them: He was made to joining BOD because the letter which came in the parcel had a warning and that was:” Join the game within 2 days or someone from your family dies! The same will occur if you wait 2 more days after that!”
obviously MC being MC and a normal human like us, didn’t believe that something like that could happen, after all their family was one of the big noble factions in Japan, who would want to make this big arsenal-holding shit into their enemies?
MC’s family consists of his mother, father, a little sister, and the older brother who is the vice-chief in Anti-magic Interpol Department, Japanese Branch!
Now, 2 days later finally his sister, a magic-user was killed in a truly grotesque manner. This incited his anger, as he was a person who loved his family more than others, after all his family didn’t abandon him even after knowing he couldn’t use magic. As that is something quite natural in this future magic-filled earth.
1 whole day passes and his family couldn’t get a clue who killed her, in the end, MC got cornered like hell and was made to submit into joining the game!
He just needed to inject himself with that liquid present in the vial, using the syringe and then activating the tablet present in parcel. This was all written in letter.
again same warning of his family’s assassination came if he didn’t play the game! This MC being a good-minded MC, took on the game and started playing the game.
Now with this I have still not disclosed a whole lot of info, but yet given quite a detailed summary to you people. If you have pieces of advice for me, let me know in comments.
