I've been reading a lot of Light Novels from Japan and there is an absurd amount of Shits Not Given in these stories to the point of being full on assholes.
Is this just how the Japanese are or is this some sort of autistic authors opinions?
I'm reading Konjiki no Wordmaster and I get to this line; granted it's been like this from the start.
“I know that you’re anxious, but Hiiro being Hiiro, if you tell him, he’ll probably just respond with something like, ‘and so what?’”
“Y-yeah… that’s true.”
>Upon hearing Arnold’s words, it seems that a burden has been lifted from Muir’s chest.
A lot of fucking LNs are like this though, not just this one imparticular.
>MC is actually god tier but only his imouto and government higher ups knows.
>He cant use his powers normally because its top secret matter.
>He is also sealed and can only use half of his power due security matters, (government fears he may blow up the entire planet)
>MC still matchless because half of his unlimited power is already more than enough to steamroll everyone in the planet
>Does not cares about moralfaggotry
>Chinese mafia tries to mess with his imouto
>They are all dead in the following day
>Colleague gets injured
>Paramedics are ready to help her
>He says to paramedics what to do
>He nukes Chinese out of existence
>Chinese thinks hes god
>Two colleagues got fatal injures
>They are saved because MC can undo injuries
>MC can bring back the clinically dead
>America gets scared of him
>Sends their top fighter
>MC defeats her several times while sealed and adds her to his harem
>America tries to spy on MC
>They use spy camera from orbital satellite
>MC sees them doing it
>Warns them by looking back at spy satellite at earth orbit
>MC has all seeing eye with limitless range
>MC hobby is solving world energy crisis by creating unlimited energy generator and creating magical weapons that makes him even more invincible
>He joins the student council at school
>He is able to perform all work from the entire student council alone faster and better than the entire people on it
>He is chief engineer from one of biggest companies in the world, hes better than everyone working on it, he alone is able to increase profits more than 20%, adored by his subordinates and hated by every other sector
>His family is said to be the strongest magical clan from Japan
>One day he beats the family head - once called the strongest magician, Mc blew her as if nothing and everyone on his family hates him
> he does not cares because he can blow up every single of them
continue Ad infinitum(better than everyone on every single thing)
Tatsuya is not a dick
You should read more chinese stuff for more "cool asshole" MC, the authors are fucking retarded.
Thing is, having a MC being an ass is not that bad, it's the narration and the pace of the story that tries to glorify it.
Bad translations, also BT translations are also pretty bad.
That part is him saying paramedics what the actual fuck really happen there, so they can take care of her. Also he was the first one in the scene doing shit before paramedics even get in the crime scene.
In Halloween he does prepare candies because he doesn't like tricks.
Tatsuya was actually trained to perform basic surgical procedures at early age, his inhuman eye is also far superior than any medical imaging device available now or in the future, so he is not being condescending, as just superlatives can be used to describe his abilities he is also humblest.
To the people there who don't know that, it does come off that way. Even reading the LN he always has to be the one solving and doing everything, expert at all trades. He handles some people like children and tells them what to do all the time. It was noted in the latest volume he hates being told what to do and not being in charge.
That's exactly what's wrong with him, he's always there doing everything first before anyone else, Tatsuya is conveniently at every scene and every danger. His ES is worse than Big Brother watching.
He's not humble at all, that's a bunch of bullshit, he's egotistical about his CADs and how he's so much better than everyone else at engineering. Tatsuya has a suitcase full of CADs created for any occassion. Just read the 9 SC short stories, he always has to best everyone.
Considering the competition has rules as to what CADs you can have and use he still feels he is above the rules and brings a suitcase full of them and then wonders how far he can stretch the rules to use them. They almost didn't let 1st high compete because his set up was borderline infringing but they let him anyway.
If you want a god teir MC who doesn't have assburgers and an interesting story read Sayonara Ryuusei Konnichiwa Jinsei. Another plus is that it doesn't seem like it is written for middle schoolers like word master and tate.
Considering the fame of Mahouka I'm fairly amazed about how long it takes for the LN's to get translated.
Mushoku Tensei gets translated asap but Mahouka doesn't? Why is that so? I've been waiting for a new chapter on Mahouka longer than a month now.
Sorry having huge amounts of CADS for every purpose or disregarding sportsmanship are unrelated with being condescending, during No Head Dragons attack Tatsuya displayed condescending behavior for the first and only time.
It's not self insert though. It's only the power of Onii-sama.
Yeah I was talking about Volume 14. Volume 15 is much better though I have my issues with it. The fight with Zhou shouldn't have less lines than Tatsuya going into a noodle shop and the author taking more time to talk about Miyuki and Minoru's beauty descriptions. That is just stupid considering Zhou has been a good antagonist and relevant for many volumes.
I assume you are american. Only english speaking people would talk in such a condescending tone about the political spectrum.
His chat with Retsu is interesting, it was the one noteworthy thing from the volume. Retsu knows about Tatsuya's past and the Yotsuba sponsor. How he will use the information or when is unclear. Retsu was in a better position prior to Volume 13. He lost a lot of the influence due to the Parasite doll event but he's definitely still planning something to undermine the Yotsuba.
His classmates don't really find out anything new about Tatsuya but Masaki learns he's in the 101st, sees him use Decomposition, suspects he has ties to Yotsuba even though Tatsuya denies it, and also hears his chat with Zhou where Tatsuya reveals he was able to trace him due to Nakura's blood.

God I want to read these parts so badly. This is what I expect the most out of the LN. I want to see the reactions of his friends when they find out just how many secrets he has in his pockets.
You might be a bit disappointed then because he didn't react that shocked or strongly just more curious about the magic even then it wasn't like oh wow look at that. He had more reaction to Tatsuya teasing about him liking Miyuki than anything else. His other friends may react more to him being Yotsuba. Masaki is also way too nice to judge people.
