Just caught up with the latest translated WN chapter.
So after what this guy did for everyone in the village, his friends were all willing to turn on him the moment he goes on the offense? What if it wasn't a curse that caused him to change to a more aggressive character?
Shittiest army ever except for Firo, Atla, and Kiel.
Well, evil scientist-mode Naofumi was basically advocating for exterminatus, which is a mite extreme even given that the denizens of that world have largely treated him like shit. With Raphtalia sounding reasonable by comparison, and the fact that she's about as much an icon among his army as he is, it makes sense.
Are you fucking stupid?
>his friends were all willing to turn on him the moment he goes on the offense?
He was advocating genocide on anyone that didn't follow him, why would the others be down with that?
>Shittiest army ever except for Firo, Atla, and Kiel.
That's because Free-Willy kept revealing his soldiers weaknesses
>dat loli Prototype Raphtalia of the Raph race
>tfw Tanuki stop the production
>Come to the first real truth in the series
>Tries to act on it
>The moment shield stops being a martyr, the world turns on him except for three based girls
>Gets slapped down like a child throwing a tantrum
>Betrayed more times in one arc than in the rest of the story
Waht the fuck was the author thinking?
Because Raphatalia became too much of a moral compass, i mean losing most the respects of the village to Raphtalia is a damn thing, but the ones who Shield cured are basically Super Soldiers and that includes the Raph race
I mean it was all so pathetic. Just... why? He supposedly became "intelligent" but acted like a moron the entire time. I mean, really. What did he do wrong? Gave every one ample opportunities to surrender. Acted only in consent. Made the foundations of an army which could successfully combat the wave. And every one is just like
>Dude what? No. Bleed for me. You're a shield. The only thing you have to do is take the hits for us. Nothing else. And fucking Sadina man, holy shit. Major cunt move, she basically tore his heart out. If it was going to be like that why not just defect from the start?
I think I'll just pretend that this never happened. I mean, it clearly isn't plot-relevant.
Probably also because some faggot spoiled the entire series, i guess most of are just waiting for the manga release or just waiting for the LN translations to be done after a period of drama.
Good thing is that the translations just started 2 weeks ago, i guess they are planning to release it when the WN translation is over.
But seriously someone needs to translate the Spear Hero spinoff
Well she is an M that's true.
He could have used his high int stat and given the shield to Atlas in stead and turned him self into an overgod without his shield. He can use magic, is combat expirienced and can even use Chi. The only thin he needs is learn a paralysis spell and he's ready to GRIND.
Why did he go straight from announcing his plot to war? Why not hide in seclusion, wait for the wave to weaken every one, build his forces up, and then strike? And why the fuck didn't he screen his followers? Sadina was painfully obvious. So obvious that it felt like she was taking advantage of him. It's like he forgot the emotion of mistrust or something.
Yeah, why make a damn big production in his bid for destruction? Shield has always been aware of the nuances of evil overlords so it doesn't make sense why he was an idiot in being one.
The author itself said it was merely an "extra" arc
Still, a few characters got their fair share of power-ups and some development.
In Naofumi's case, it was shown that he did have romantic feelings for Raphtalia.
>I have no memories of the incident, but based on their testimonies, I was the cliché villain, and Raphtalia the main hero.
>That truly does seem to be the case. Don’t they appear a lot in fiction? Boss characters that get betrayed and attacked by their subordinates?
So the arc WAS a villain parody after all. Still, since Naofumi doesn't remember a single thing, does this mean he goes back to being dense.
>“Yeah, however, I absolutely won’t forgive a relationship beyond that of dating, forcefully pressing her for a kiss, or trying to have sex and such.” (Naofumi)
Nothing beyond trying to have sex...got it.
Guys, it's not the characters who suck, it's the author. If most of your characters act so uncharacteristically and in a retard way for more than a story arc, it's all the author's fault, not the character's.
Good old Bakahou knew about this. That's why he just disappeared at the right time, without letting anybody know. I'm still thankful to Yoraikun for the translations so far, mind you. But the story really went down the drain fast.
Sadly, i hope it does, i even bothered to try and read the Spinoff and so far im enjoying it with Motayasu's batshit personality, and basically i love how
not betrayed Naofumi become the King on Loop 5 and Melty as her queen, its so fucking sweet, that holy shit i want to reread it again
Setting up the village really killed the story since it's where Naofumi went full gary stu and every main character turned into unrepentant Shieldfags.
Shield keeping to jewing adventures would have provided better world building and interaction without the sudden influx of a shitload of characters.
Fucking this. I think it's really weird he didn't freak out and go full wrath after all those betrayals.
>Dude what? No. Bleed for me. You're a shield. The only thing you have to do is take the hits for us. Nothing else.
It will be interesting how this arc plays out differently in the LN.
I hope Mad Scientist Naofumi gets more things done.
>The manga will probably not show this arc, or even finish
>loses the respect of half of the villagers in his own fucking town
>His "allies" wont even support him and doesn't fully trust him
>gets betrayed without him knowing it
>cant even touch his newly created fluffy Raph species
>his allies are even punished
>Atlas,Firo, Kiel are the only ones willing to protect his smile
Cant wait for the recoil of all of this on
I still can't accept that the person who created these characters support an ending like that.
>pressured by a bunch of chinks for the village arc
>negative bullshit spouting on his account
It was clear that he wanted revenge and too bad it got even worse for him. Funny how most Shieldbro fans are chinks
Well, LN seems to be mostly rage inducing so far.
in the LN
>Raphtalia meet her former slave master
>dat rage inducing speech on how the dude tortured one of the villagers
>Raphtalia then stabs the dude on the heart
Turtle arc got more rage inducing
>introduces a top tier holy fucking shit so dere lady
>so clumsy and shit
>so fucking cute
>turns out she is a familiar of the Turtle
>cue, bad guy
>proceeds to torture Turtle lady, while Naofumi and gang was force to watch helplessly
>rages, because Firo and Raphtalia are crying
>Book Hero escapes, Shieldbro gets new Shield, that fires lasers that deals 1 dmg for second and gravity control
>heart tearing scene of turtle lady
>revenge promise by Shieldbro
im am very tempted to buy the other world volumes
heres the guy that got stab in heart and in the shoulder
So she gets her revenge too.
And this guy is the Book Hero, this shitfuck is fucking worse.
his fucking like
>oh, i destroyed you heart oh sorry
>hmmm, oops sorry i accidentaly papercut your insides
>oops sorry, did that hurt?
>no? heres more
>oh hello, are guys her friends?
>dont worry this will last long
His a sadist and fucking shit at sarcasm
and this is the part where the Book Hero, destroyed the Heart
Well, it's not their fault. They had all their old allies against as enemies. They even spit blood before surrendering. And that bitch then forced Naofumi to even punish them. Raphtalia really turned from chocolate to shit. Now I'm actually relieved she didn't appear even once in Spear Gaiden so far.
The suffering never ends.
I'd like to think that Spear Gaiden is a huge fuck you to the Chinks.
You didn't like my ending? Well witness it over and over again!
>Atlas,Firo, Kiel are the only ones willing to protect his smile
Those 3 are the best allies. Even a hundread chapters ago, when Naofumi became Naivefumi, only those 3 weren't "disgusted" by him.
Yes only once, in the Spear Gaiden? almost about 4th time now
In Spear Gaiden, Naofumi's thoughts on Melty was so absurd that they
marry in loop 5and motayasu being happy for Shieldbro, literally the only reason Shield cant get laid according to Motayasu, because of Raphtalia.
Spear Gaiden IS better then the main story. Or at least, better than 75% of the main story, everything after the return of the queen. If I have to point something bad about it, it's those fucking loops. The basically make every new character useless, since all new characters in each loops are doomed to never appear in any future loops, and all old characters from the main story having a big role in a loop are completely forgotten in the successive loops. Like Eclaire in loop 4, or Melty in loop 5.
Who fucking cares about the other characters. Spear Gaiden is basically Motoyasu and Naofumi's manly-kickass-adventures. And Motoyasu is the first character who (almost) never failed to protect Naofumi's smile for 300+ chapters. He's not the hero we deserve, he's the hero Naofumi deseves.
The half of the village not following him didn't really bother me. I can understand them not following him.
What angered me was Rat's experiment turning on Naofumi near the end. I wanted a final battle, not Naofumi getting his ass kicked and shat on.
>I can understand them not following him.
That's not the problem. Or better, it is, since they already are scum at that point, but the real problem is that they went actively against him. That's betrayal, man. After all the shit he did and still does for them. Naofumi should learn a thing or two from the MC of Re:Monster.
Our main translator is plans on finishing the WN. That's why he's still translating it. The WN is also completed, unlike the LN.
He doesn't plan on translating the LN, so we might be fucked.
You do have a point. All of them are there only because of Naofumi. That's their excuse for attacking him, because they want THEIR Naofumi back.
At least a few of his friends stayed with him. They at least tried to keep the smile.
I still mourn for the original Naofumi.
re:m is too unrealistic on the chain and a large fact due in the terror he does upon his own troops, to the point if they ever don't do what he wants he will eat them. It's just unrealistic to assume Naofumi, even in dark mode could slay his own just to make an example and instill fear on his army, especially when he wastes so much time being the kitchen hero and stuff.
Am I the only one that was surprised when Spear was convinced to turn against Bird and Shield?
So much for blind loyalty.
I don't know why people keep viewing that as a betrayal when when Raphtalia snaps him out of the curse series the curses scientist Naofumi admitted that he was basically a totally different identity with a huge split in personality
I mean all they were trying to do was get THEIR Naofumi back
>re:m is too unrealistic
>a story about someone reincarnating as a goblin in a rpg fantasy like world is unrealistic
well no shit pal
Well, okay, I didn't mean that dark, I meant only as we were shown in the manga, with him sparring hard with them until they're all exhausted.
Just a little bit of discipline, you know? Naofumi's army completely lacks in discipline. That's even more unrealistic for an army, if you ask me.
Spear Gaiden is fun to read
>Spearbro protecting Shields smile at any cost
>Gone batshit insane and destroyed a country in anger
>did make Naofumi marry someone
>Killed King Trash for fun
>killed Bow and Sword for experiment
>allowed Naofumi to drown in demi human pussy oncw
>made Naofumi in one loop a fucking badass
>loyal as fuck to his one true waifu Firo
And its still getting updated.
>And its still getting updated.
The last update I'm seeing is on pastebin from november of last year which was chapter 3 in the Siltvelt arc
and apparently chapter 417 in total I wasn't able to find anyone else translating it as well and BT seems to be on that as well
I mean the raws, the guy who Tled the chaptet give up,since mostly the dialogues are too confusing especislly when Spear goes into random monologues on Firo or making the one who tries to hurt Naofumi die a gruesome death.
You're not the only one, I still enjoy the WN after the Pope arc. Sure the S&W RPG sequences are over, but building the village and saving the other heroes from themselves never felt boring to me.
My only regret is Rat not being the evil assistant sidekick, rather than Sadina.
Re: Monsterfags are truly delusional.
It doesn't surprise me the only ones left reading that shit series are third worlders mad that most decent translators abandoned because it only shows to the world how crappy Re:Monster actually is with the author even saying he made MC near god status too soon and doesn't really know what to do with the story and so just pathetically tries to drag on the story as long as possible.
The LN is also completely different past the turtle and slightly different before then.
Who is doing the translations for the LN? yoraikun said he wouldn't do the LN only the WN. Personally I'd really rather read the LN. The images make it seem like a better story.
This is /v/ levels of autism
I'm really grateful the guy takes the time to translate at least a chapter every other day, but holy shit are his translator notes annoying
