    celebrating the return of setsuna86 and by extension, the resumed translation of this novel, i feel an LCD is deserved (finally)
    https://setsuna86blog.wordpress.com/2018/08/16/active-again/

    Manga_volume_6.jpg

    Alternate Title:
    King of the Magic Bullet and the Vanadis
    Lord Marksman and Vanadis
    Madan no Ou to Senki
    魔弹之王与战姬
    魔弾の王と戦姫

    Synopsis from novel page:
    In times of war, set in Western Europe like world, Eleonora Viltaria, one of the seven Vanadis of Zhcted, leads the war into Brune. There are actually seven Vanadis, named like this because they each received a powerful weapon from the dragon, to reign over seven territories, each possessing their own.

    The power of the Vanadis causes dread and fear toward their enemies. An Earl in the service of the country of Brune, a young archer called Tigre, got a taste of it after he was defeated on the battlefield by Ellen (Eleonora). However, Ellen decided to spare his life after seeing his skills. In exchange, he is asked to serve her…

    Manga Ver: Mangadex
    There's also a 13-episodes anime adaptation, but you'll have to hunt it yourself :blobpeek:

    for those who've never read this novel yet, allow me to list some key points :blob_sunglasses:
    • MC is an archer, or basically his only proficient weapon is a bow
    • if the poll is still not obvious, this novel is harem-genred
    • unlike the heroine(s) who have superhuman strength, the mc is just a normal man.
    • the story involves a lot of war. the plot is kind of similar to grancrest senki, if you've watched it
    • both the anime and manga adaptation covers event from novel's volume 1 to 5

    As for the story, well, a powerful duke tried to take over the kingdom, trampling the MC's fief in the process. As the young fuedal lord, MC had to 'hire' the kingdom's enemy, one of the vanadises to oppose the duke. MC's intention to only protect his people and land escalated to a full blown quest to defend the kingdom instead after neighboring countries took advantage of the civil war and joined in for a piece of the pie. :blobhero:

    btw, please put infos from untranslated volumes under a spoiler tag, if you're posting any. thanks

    Is it finally?!
    But I can't really get my hopes high up after the long absence and broken promises. Though this is just me getting pessimistic.

    This novel is the very first light novel i ever read so i was really sadden when setsuna focused on asterisk war that i didn't even like or read ( well, I tried to, many times too but can't really get into it)

    I also like saijaku bahamut before then but i lost my interest after the anime.

    The series already ended so i hope i can also finish reading it.
    There is new Madan no Ou series with the same story timeline but took a different route with Ludmira as the main heroine so i hoped it will be picked up to later on.

    tbh, i don't really liked both asterisk and saijaku either. both because of the heroines, actually.

    but i can understand that translator would usually focus on stories they liked more. or sometimes just because of rythm.

    anyway, setsuna also give a progress report/percentage of volume 13
