    He got the most material from the last one, but he was already using enchanted weapons against them, the problem with using magic weapons against fureizu is that you can't affect them with the enchantment. Putting effects like gravity on the weapon gets past the magic absorption, and charging magic into fureizu equipment raises its strength and durability. I'm pretty sure he made some crystal weapons before the last fureizu fight, after End pointed out that he could.

    Also, he's been using Slip at range since back when the king was poisoned, bullets came later, and may have been to get around the magic absorbing barrier of the general in the Empire.

    I'm pretty sure if you go back to his earliest fights, before he had the gun, but after he had Slip, you'll still see him starting the fight with Slip, in spite of being no where near the enemy.

    I checked and I was wrong. My bad.

    Has he used the Fureizu weapons against a Fureizu?

    Pretty sure he has, but it would have been two batch releases ago, quickly overshadowed by the discovery of Gundam technology.

    Checked it, the last one they encountered is a Spider version that they defeated by Gravity. They used its material to create the weapons which was an idea by MC due to Rin examining its properties. (ch 107)

    Disappointed that he never thought of enchanting Paralysis and other stuff on Frame Gear against Behemoth-class monsters.

    Author really likes Gravity that much, huh?

    Paralysis doesn't always work, on magically powerful enemies, plus that's a non-lethal attack that is reserved for human opponents.

    Still, he had a lot of spells he could use instead of having to repair the Frame Gear every time he uses it.

    I'm starting to think at this point that the author just placed the convenient "all spells" ability so that he could shove in whatever spell he wants rather than an epic combo.

    He didn't know he was damaging the FG til after the battle, and even then he thought it would be fine if they just rebuilt the whole thing in the [Workshop]. If you were in his shoes would you have cared about the suit's durability, or would you have squashed that bug, when it started hurling acid?

    He's also planning to use the Frame Gear exclusively for Fureizu, though he added behemoth slaying to it, so he needs to focus on indirect magic use so he doesn't get into any bad habits.

    If I was him, I would've prepared reaaaaal good enhancing the Frame Gear rather than battling with a basic.

    Just because he has something big doesn't mean he automatically wins. It just makes things a bit easier.

    And just because magic doesn't work on Fureizu doesn't mean he can't enhance the Frame Gear itself with Magic.

    The girls of Babylon made it pretty clear that he can't do anything really useful with the facilities or mechs, til he finds the [Warehouse], since it has the more advanced Frame Gear and the plans for all the experimental stuff, and that he is also making do with an inferior fuel source, because the Robomaid that actually made the high-quality stuff is in another castle. The nutty professor from 5000 years ago is screwing with him, teasing new stuff only to point out it is elsewhere, and probably has been watching all his adventures like a Netflix series.

    There are two things I wish they had done.
    1. I wish they had added this world Japan's Emporer to the parties because of his fiancé and all people that move to his land.
    2. I wish as a "special product" for his land had built both an Amusment Park and a Casino. All he really has is a man cave. He needs pools, roller coasters, theaters, stadiums, and etc.. Not bicycles. Even building weapons, armor, and etc. would be better.

    I don't remember if we've actually met the "Emperor" or Daimyo, Shogun, or whoever is in charge in Ishen, but the parties are a meeting for the Western Alliance countries. If the MC decides to just open his game room up for international guests, it would still be difficult for someone from that far away to get there, without calling ahead for a gate.

    He chooses what games to introduce based on his preferences (which he described as sorta old-mannish in an early chapter), and the culture of the area. So i don't see him opening a casino, though someone may gamble with what he has already introduced, and roller coasters go too far in the "out of place technology" category, without the side uses that earned the Frame Units an exemption. He built a stadium for baseball, which prompted the other countries to build their own, brought bathing into fashion with his public bathhouses, and we already saw what happened when he used his phone as a home theater, I don't think there is enough media available for anymore theaters to play (his phone and projector magic ended up on a 'reservation' system IIRC).

    The whole Western Alliance is only a cover for kings to have fun. Your right he hasn't meet the Emporer, but he could have at least invited he's fiancé family over for a get together.
    Now concerning the Amusment Park. I'm just saying if he was looking for a specialty products that you can find no where else. I say entertainment. With the roller coaster. I'm not sure what you were thinking about, but what I was thinking we're rides. Maybe a river with a log big enough for several people shooting down the rapids or maybe getting rides on summon beast like Pegasus. Now for the stadium. As far as I know he doesn't have one. He has a field that they play baseball on. They probably have public bathhouse, but I would make a huge 5 star SPA with a hot spring. Lastly the theater share the same problem of not sharing. With all these products I hope to make his kingdom a major vacation spot for everyone. Not for kings, queens, or any single group. I'm thinking about the commoners. I'm think Disney and Las Vegas. Just a little dial down.

    The stuff he's introduced were things the merchants could continue to produce without him, kites, board games, bicycles, tops, and yoyos all of them were fun for all ages and easily reproduced. The baseball field got upgraded to a stadium, when he got more international guests coming in, that's also when he introduced the popcorn and commemorative beer mugs. The closest he came to the roller coaster, or other such rides, was when he learned to use flying magic, and normal people couldn't handle it, all his wives got sick from the 3d movement. Everybody got extremely emotional invested in the random cartoons he played on his phone, and with his projector spell, he could play it for a whole town at once, but nobody would get anything done since visual stories seem to be completely unknown. He also would have to give up his phone if he set that up for everyone, and that's less likely to happen now that he's a king, and feel responsible for confronting fureizu and behemoth monsters.

    I don't remember him saying anything about a stadium, but I do remember the pop corn. I don't remember his wives being 3d sick, except for one of his wife being sea sick when traveling. And lastly I'm not expecting the MC to give up his phone for movie night, but as I said I wish he had a device that would project a cartoon like the early black and white ones.

    Using his modeling, he built up walls and rows of stadium seating for his baseball field. He tried taking his girls up with him when he was flying, by using floating magic on them, but even flying slowly, was too much for them. The time he set up his phone with a projection, for short cartoons, he was unable to use his room or his phone, for the rest of the day, because of repeat viewings being requested by everyone in his manor. To make that sort of thing more common place, he would have to release more of the technology of Babylon, they had monitors and computers after all, but I'm guessing that he needs another one of the floating islands for the parts needed, probably the warehouse.

    Country Mage it's not that I don't believe you, but could you be more specific on the chapters. The stadium being built and the girls flying around.
    Now for theaters it would be great if it were a projectors they had in the early 1900s. By using drawing and light magic non attribute magic you should be able to do a silent cartoon. At worst you can have real people do plays from our world like Shakespeare or stories from Hans Christian Andersen.
