Customer reviews

By Cameron Horner 12 Aug 2014 5

If you have just seen the anime, then now's the time to finish it from square one. The light novel is the original source of the story, yet its best to start from novel 1, instead of picking up where it left in the anime. It can be confusing at times due to it being based on "economics", and there is a few grammar mistakes (or its just me), but it's definitely a book, (I) would have to read more than once.

The condition of the book is a really weak paperback. So don't take it with you on the bus, or whatever, unless you can keep it protected well (a manga-like sleeve will do), as the corners of the covers are the weakest spot, and the pages get rounded easily. I ended out using book contact (clear) on them, which is a very non-collector thing to do.
