Volumes 1 to 5 are available on Amazon! The books are going onto a different track, so don't miss the new adventures of Chaos!
Death and Reincarnation.
Kuroe Makoto, the tomboyish ace of her high school track and field club, never spared a thought for these things before. However, when she falls asleep in her Tokyo home after an exhausting marathon and wakes up in a fantasy world, those concepts become her reality. And unlike in the common light novel setting, she isn't reincarnated as the naturally good-looking and talented human hero who gathers a harem effortlessly.
In fact, she isn't reincarnated as a human at all. She is reborn as 'Chaos', child of the demon queen and heir to a kingdom at war with humanity.
Maou Shoujo Magical Chaos puts the Japanese high school girl in a tentacle monster, in this strange tale of a sound human mind possessing a horrifying creature's body. Join Chaos on her oftentimes humorous but also perilous journey through a world of sword and sorcery, as she discovers a newfound appetite for life, terror, and demi-human girls.
This story features just yuri, as the female protagonist only has interest in other females.
Current Release Schedule: One to two chapters every week. Expect an announcement if I can't keep to that.
Pledge of Completion: With the release of the ebook on Amazon, I pledge that this series will never be dropped, and see completion.
Standalone spin-off featuring Senka: Red Mantis and Avenger Doll

I found this story to be a very fun read.
Style: I like the style actually, but it's not really the best type of style. The 4th wall breaking gets a bit much.
Story: I very much enjoy the story itself. Being on the side of "evil" and reading from that perspective is really fun.
Grammar: I remember seeing some out of place grammar so 4/5.
Character: The MC is hilarious and her harem is also pretty fun. I enjoyed all of their shenanigans.
It's a very fun story.
Style-Informal, lacks dialogue tags but makes it clear who's talking when. I found it easy to read, easy to empathize with the MC's internal dialogue and that kept me invested in her character.
Grammar-Found no errors.
Story-It's one of those type of stories where if you are concerned more about the goal than the journey I don't think you'll allow yourself to enjoy it.
Character-Based heavily in anime troupes and I think the author uses them well. Usually find that authors tend to not represent the troupes well so when you have the anime you imagined in your mind and compare that to the story, the story falls short. With this story I felt I could imagine the character's well in anime form.
Overall- Didn't expect much going in and found myself drawn in, as if a tentacle wrapped around my ankle and pulled me into a dark abyss.
Maou Shoujo Makoto Chaos
scale of 1-5
The style in which the story is written is quite enjoyable. While not my favourite personally, and while it sometimes requires the "right mood" in order to get into it, there is no doubt that the comedic style is a fun read to the majority of the story's audience. The downside of it is its rather niche focus on a somewhat target audience, which may further hinder it due to its already restricted playing field of the genre in which it wallows.
On the flip-side however, doubling down on its focus may in fact be its strength
instead, and furthermore the style's satisfactory execution leaves no doubt in my mind that even to people who might not be familiar with, or downright dislike the niche that the story puts focus on, will either enjoy the style of writing, or at worst, will not be impacted by it at all.
I have given the story a 4 in this category mainly out of personal taste,
though it likely deserves higher.
The story is so far the category with which I have the most issues. Leaving aside my general distaste for anything not done extremely well in this particular genre
(which to begin with should have a rather diminished impact on this particular story due to its original execution, but more on that later), I have decided to first assess it without prejudice. However even then I have a number of small and even some large issues with it.
First, the main character's goal is vague at best. She seems to lack motivation for things in general (note, seems; this is something that ties in with a point I will make later on) and she can be hard to identify with.
Her main goal at the moment is returning to the demon lord's castle before the 3 years are up but... what happens after? In fact, she had already succeeded once so far. Does that not count? And what happens next, after her goal is reached?
She also doesn't seem very concerned with finding out about herself, her species, about the world she landed in,... she seems to find out about these things in a somewhat passive way, rather than actively searching for answers, which seems like it would be more in line with a story progression.
What I think is the source of all these listed issues and a number of others is, that we do not seem to be able to get a look at what's actually going on inside her head DESPITE the fact that the story is written in FIRST PERSON.
That is an alarming failure on the author's part, as it seems to me that due to the story being written in the style that it is (though also somewhat hindered by the style in this aspect), we should be able to have a much closer and more persistent look at Makoto's motivations, her plans, goals etc. To be fair, Makoto does often state or think what it is she wants to do and acts very clearly on it, but even then she still seems lackluster in this department, mosty jumping from one immediate goal to the next in the reader's eyes.
I would like to compare this story to my experience of Kono Subarashii Sekai ni Shukufuku Wo. Both are stories that put a unique twist on the alternate world fantasy and both surprised me at the start with their execution and smooth progression. Despite my distaste for the genre, both managed to provoke interest from me.
I won't go into details on what I noticed about KonoSuba after I read all the Light Novels that are out at this time, but for this story in particular, despite my honest wishes against it, my interest for it began to falter with certain chapters. I still find interesting unique takes on the genre in this story in recent chapters, and honestly there are more now in the very recent chapters than in the school arc chapters, but I am very much looking forward to a fresh take that will put a new spin on things in the coming chapters.
There is not much to say here. Aside from the very very occasional misuse of a tense or a typo, the grammar is excelent and small mistakes can be forgiven. The reason I don't give it a flat 5 in this category is simply because I am a prick.
The characters so far have left a positive impression on me overall. I have some minor issues with how some of their development has gone, but honestly, that in itself is something to be praised and in the end often comes down to personal taste, story genre, their roles and other things that aren't necessarily a subject of objective rating. Therefore, what I can say about this category is mostly along the lines of what I personally enjoy or do not enjoy.
I enjoy twisted anti-hero characters, I enjoy unexpected crazy twists, I enjoy a resourceful protagonist that isn't just a power fantasy.
I'd first like to say that Makoto does well in the twisted anti-hero department, does fairly well in the unexpected twist department (although I'd like to see more of those in the general storyline AND IN OTHER CHARACTERS!) and passes with flying colours in the resourcefulness department, albeit having some minor issues with the power department. That is not to say that she is too strong physically, she runs into her own set of troubles and does not simply go unchallenged, as shown particularly well in the latest chapter (ch58 - No More Mercy). I do have issues with her mental, psychological fortitude however, as far as young Japanese high-schoolers are concerned. While there is a lot I could say on this, I'll just say that some of it ties in with our seeming inability to see inside her head.
As far as what I don't enjoy is concerned... one thing that comes to mind is her overly passive and predictable sidecharacters (Senka in particular is somewhat forgettable, I had forgotten she was even part of the gang until I was all but done with the character review) While they have had character development, as far as I can tell it has mostly been towards them being more dependant on Makoto.
On the other hand, Makoto seems like she could be doing perfectly fine even if they had never existed, aside from her emotional attachment to them. I am looking forward to a lot more surprising developments on their parts, perhaps even a new groupie in the form of the golden lady in the recent chapter? I suppose we'll see soon enough.
That said however, I must reiterate that a lot of the characters so far have managed
to do a great job at charting out their personality and interests (all the more sad that this seems to be an issue with the main character). This is particularly praiseworthy as far as minor characters that are likely to not have a recurring appearance go, as a lot of them so far have made an impression on me.
It is with a shaky hand that I give this story this score. That is not to say that it doesn't deserve it, or a better score. I believe that objectively speaking it deserves at least that, if not better.
The reason I rate it this way is in my personal enjoyment factor. While I do enjoy it, and look forward to new chapters and developments (mostly new characters right now), I felt like I had to give it this score more because it deserves better. While I do think that there are a some things it could objectively be doing better, I feel it would be unfair of me to not recognise the things it does well despite the fact that it's not my preferred genre. However, since it hasn't quite managed to completely reignite the same spark I had when reading some of the earlier chapters, this is my compromise between the two opposite sides. I'll be patiently waiting for the fire to be linked once more.
This is a story about a chaos demon that is sent to the human continent. It has great grammer and is one of the funnier stories on royal road. It also has some 4th wall breaks and a creepy(in a funny way) possessed doll. All the side characters have personality and they stand out. Even a dark elf with a crab claw as a hand is an intresting character. Read this, you wont be dissapointed!
But this time I'm willing to make an exception.
This story captured me and I felt compelled to read through it all at once.
I lost a few nights' sleep reading this, nothing serious.
You don't need any knowledge about Lovecraftian lore if you want to read this, however, the MC's species, Crawling Chaos, is incidentally a reference to it, so it might increase reader satisfaction if you at least know about Nyarlathotep.
Oh! And the references! Wonderfully done! I hope to see more of them!
Very well executed idea, simply delicious funny moments in all their glory.
This is a very good story with an amazing schedule and great quality. I fail to see how this isn't more highly rated.
If you're wondering "should I read this?" read it. You won't regret it.
Thank you author for an amazing journey :D
a very well spun tale that all can enjoy (16+ xD) and apparently reviews need to be 200 words long erm one of the best stories I've read in here in along time. Well written characters nice twist to keep the story fresh and entertaining and even the sex scenes are well written which is not easy
I enjoyed it very much and expect to read more about it. Thanks!
I fun read and one I eagerly wait for the next update.
A wonderful and interesting story, go on!
