Kouki!!! Reading the plot description, it makes sense why Roxas is the MC.

Come to think of it, this is that one isekai series that's really heavy on the action scenes.
Of course, it'd get animated.

Apparently Black Summoner is also one of Overlap's more popular series in its roster.

Oh man, this will be fantastic. I can't wait. I wonder how much material it will cover; it would be great if they got as far as Rion's introduction.

Sounds like it could be fun, but if he gave away his memories, then unless he can get them back, why even make this an isekai?

I think the funniest thing for me about these light novels is the names they give the main characters. Like, maybe Kelvin sounds kinda cool and foreign to Japanese readers but for me, I see a main character named Kelvin and want to shove him in a locker or something, you know? Even if it's not a very common first name it feels so basic.
Like if you watched a serious fantasy anime but the main character's names were Larry and Jim.


Anyway this looks generic to me but the comment section seems favorable so maybe there's more to it.

Later on in the series he is given the last name Celsius, so his name is a deliberate play on temperature scales. Perhaps his middle name is Fahrenheit.

Now that I can get behind. If they're giving him a stupid name so they can make dopey jokes like that, I will accept it.
