Very few stories actually challenge their characters in this manner and it makes their growth all the more sweet. Ragna has some great characterization that made her journey engaging. Your world building is impeccable, it manages to keep building a fine tapestry that is compelling to know about.

A sturdy world build and progression.

Reviewed at: Chapter 17 - Clockwork Horrorshow

This is final fantasy done right and even better. It mixes in mythology, sc-fi, politics and more pit together well without the feeling of misalignment.

 

Style:

Sometimes I feel the style is absolutely great and sometimes a bit strange but it was not jarring so it is a matter of taste.

 

Story:

The story is really gripping, it progresses smoothly and no major plotholes was there. The only thing I found was that some world rules clearly played part in the story while i did not understand why since it was not mentioned then. 

 

Grammar:

I read through the atory smoothly without trouble so nothing from me. 

 

Character:

Most of the characters were clearly distinct from each other and clearly different my only problem was sometimes I felt some went out of character in slight cases.

Ragna a young girl's failure to become a hero by YAK Edge tells the story of Ragna who is arrogant and a bit crazy. But even so, I like listening to her thoughts and rambles. She's a good protagonist.

I could say many things about this story. But what the first thought in my mind is that this story reads like Bleach. I'm really getting Kubo vibes here. Maybe he quit being a Mangaka, learned to write in English and posts here? I miss and love Bleach, so this story gets five stars in every category.

 A classic sent into the real world story, the author makes good use of fantasy and sci-fi elements to provoke character growth and action.  Would read again, good job author!

I like that Ragna is badass but still a girly-girl. She is not one of these MCs who can only be badass once they were pants. Ragna wears a skirt and that is great. I feel like shipping trash for shipping her with her rival.
