This sounds very promising. With both Paladin and the recently translated Goblin Slayer, i could stand to see more light novels that read less like "Light Novels" and more like fantasy stories.

I'm gonna apply for a credit card just to sign up for J-Novel Club membership.

I've sampled the first chapters of their work. Their translations are really, really just good. Hopefully things keep going well for them.

This sounds really interesting to me, and I may just have to try it out. Very rarely do I do that.

This review convinced me to buy it, and wow, this is definitely the best story from the isekai genre that I've read, and I've read quite a lot. It;s the closest you can get to an actual traditional novel, and it actually has a very relevant theme pertaining to the isekai conceit.

I just hope latter volumes can maintain this quality and not fall into spinning-the-wheels thing many manga and LN falls into.

So happy to see such a positive review. I finished 40-some Light Novels last year and this was my favorite. Really good book, heads above almost everything else.
