ah...the last chapter was good...the resolution became a normal and it won't hurting my eyes anymore...thx guys....

Well damn, that was good.
That was really good. I think the MC is a shoe-in for one of my favorite characters in recent memory.

Well at least chapter 7 doesnt appear to have been downsized to troll. Tried asking on the translator's site why he downsized so many chapters but he refused to respond


I'm sorry, I must have missed that message. To clear that up, originally, when I was doing chapter 4-6, the only scans I could get were horribly downsized. If I tried to upscale it, it would become horribly pixelated and I didn't have the time to redraw every single page. It would have taken way longer. A rough estimate would be about 2-3 months if I wasn't really busy. I hated that I couldn't get better quality scans without ruining my own copies of the manga as much as everyone else was complaining.

A friend helped me out with later chapters, so I guess everything should be alright now.

persona anyone?

The manga rushes quite a lot of things I see. I remember the battle was a bit longer in LN. It also doesn't explain why Gunjou couldn't escape or what MC's fake holy sword is.
 
That said Gunjou best girl.


It better this way.... One thing i hate in this novel was how they over explain things.

I'd say the best thing about this are the characters' attitudes. But the plot is utter nonsense...

Well, I called it months ago.  Someone would complain when they realize the MC isn't just some shallow dick.  Being heroic doesn't make him a wish fulfillment character (in fact in this series events more often than not don't go in favor of the MC and he's typically down on his luck).  Being a douchebag and getting away with everything because he's an OP asshole is wish fulfillment, there's plenty of manga and web novels you can read if you want edginess.

Oh sorry. Maybe I didn't make myself too clear what with all the sarcasm and douchebaggery.

See, I wanted to like this series. The concept interests me and is more than a little original. The problem lies in the execution. For example In the very first chapter, we are introduced to the main character. He establishes himself as an asshole and thats all well and good. It could have been cool to learn about why he acts the way he does(maybe his parents were eaten by a T-rex or something?) and see how he develops(do his new classmates help him pave another, less dickish path for himself? Does everyone hate him because of how much of an OP jerk he is? Or do people just tolerate him because he could be a valuable asset for missions and stuff without ever really getting close?). But when in the very same chapter your main character

, your expectations get set a bit high. Now I am by no means a "fan" of LNs, but I'm fairly knowledgeable in the genre(Yeah I know they're a medium. I use genre here to describe the "supernatural romcom/harem shounens of LNs, which seem to be in surplus nowadays) and this is grade A wish fulfillment BS. The final nail in the coffin was, for me, the

That particular trope, like the twintailed/rich tsundere comes with way too much baggage, and I hate standing in line for luggage claim ifuknowwhatimean. Now If the MC hadn't revealed that

Also, for someone complaining about cringing from dialogue, your "favorite line in any recent manga ever :/" isn't exactly amazing

Oh I know. I just meant that out of all the recent manga that fall under the aforementioned LN "genre" that I've read, that line was one of my favs.

Nah, both Youko and Kagami's atogakis specifically say that this volume (vol 4) is the last volume of the manga. The english text also says "to be continued...?" and Youko says to read the LN instead for the rest of story.

 

Ah, that explains a lot. I haven't had the time to seriously read the book. I read through the book in 5 minutes when I first got it. I've pretty much skipped the notes, due to time constraints. Still haven't gone back to read it. Sorry about that misunderstanding.

why?

so she's stronger? or..

Spoiler

Does this guy seriously need to mention that he doesn't care about anything other than money in every single chapter?

 

Dude, I get it. We're supposed to be surprised when because it turns out you've been tsundere all along.

Why did chapter 4 onwards get rescaled to be really small?

So one of us is reading it incorrectly.

 

What I see is a small message saying that the first 16 chapters have been completed, something about supporting Youko-san, something about them being happy, and a giant english text reading "To Be Continued."

Oh didn't knew there is a manga version of it. Cool.

 

I read the LN and its pretty solid actually.

Wooo boy that was bad. The plot is all over the place with that forced exposition. The pacing is horrible, the dialogue is cringeworthy. Like, the last time I read the phrase "kill the girl" this much in one sitting was while flipping through the script of a Disney's Little Mermaid parody.
 
And while I like the concept of the main character's apparent 'I'm trashy and I know it personality', the reveal that he's

most likely means that he isn't that bad of a guy at heart' a.k.a a generic, video game wish fulfilment by the book supernatural romcom protagonist. Or at least, he turns into one, which is a shame really.

Question on the ln does kiri end up being the main heroine? (big tits girl with sword)

Spoiler

No, it's finished. The manga ended with vol 4. Yep, with the exact same cliffhanger as the LN vol 2 ending.

1 star. This is just awful.

What's up with the crappy raw? Too small

Apocalypse Alice is not complete. Volume 3-4(Chapter 9-16) of the manga is the equivalent of Volume 2 of the light novel. Kagami Takaya has stated that Vol.1-3 of the light novel is only a "prologue" to the actual plot.

the concept and characters have me hooked.

do wish we could read without having to deal with all of this fuckery, though.

This series is already finished (16 chapters). I think it's an issue with having a consistent scanlating group
