Interesting For A Good Read   
Rating: N/A

Read up (translated) to vol 6, so I'm already waiting until the next translation will come out. The following comments is for people who have not read this yet and the description above don't give much to interest people to start.

The background setting for this novel is an alternative Europe world so to say the least, somewhere around the late 17th century and early 18th century. I uses clues and hints from all the translated novel so far to bases on this description setting based on what military technology they were using in the novel. The country which the MC live in are currently having border conflict (undeclared war, assuming) with its neighboring country. These conflict has been going on for unknown generations. That the setting, there no known allies (countries) for the MC country, however the MC country is a powerhouse.

Character Quick Description:
MC (male): A bookworm and person not suited for any physical work. He lack stamina, physical strength, and anything that require for a regular soldier. He in the military because of his family situation and his family finance situation. He lack confidence in himself and he somewhat fearful dealing with older women (interaction, communication, and etc.) due to how he was rise by his older sister (only living relative) of his. So even if a female regardless whether they are older or younger that are interest in him, he will deny it and state he unsuited for them with full force of his will power.

Main Heroine (princess/commander/General): A young skilled swords women, but inexperience in military education (because of her gender) and certain general education (she hate to study). She wish to change her country by rising to the top (become Empress) with the MC help. People close to her will describe her action close to an animal instincts which in turn cause the MC most of the time to put a brake on it.

Interaction between the MC and MC Heroine and all the people around them in their world of conflicts in both military (internal and external) and political. Watch as the MC Heroine drag the MC around (metaphor-ly) as they rise to whatever they are aiming for (maybe?)

While the setting and the story is not the freshest among the lot, the interesting characters and their interactions made me binge read from the start of volume 1 up till the point where the translators have released their work (vol4 4, chap 2). The translator does an awesome job in keeping things consistent in their translation.

Definitely for people looking for a light and quick paced story. I am deducing one point because almost all the characters seem to have the same age in the illustration.
