NU link: https://www.novelupdates.com/series/population-control/ novel address: https://defiring.com/population-control/ Raws: https://ncode.syosetu.com/n0859fa/ Cool novel I've decided to try my hand at translating. Really hard project but I think it's worth it. Author speaks English pretty well btw and he's veeery dedicated to his novel, so you can find him in the comments and all. He might even pass by here, who knows. Despite the synopsis, the novel does have some humor and all. It's not edgy or super dark. You won't find the extremely gory descriptions of Dungeon Defense. It tries to stay as realistic as possible but of course it takes some liberties at times when it comes to the story-telling. MC isn't evil or edgy or a psychopath, he's a pretty cool guy, but still flawed. Even though he does get a bit more insane as the story goes on. This is the place to sort of discuss the novel, but if you got any questions for me or the author, you can post them here, too. Synopsis (by me): The simulation theory―― a theory that claims the world is a simulation program running on a computer. When Kageyama, an engineer, was called by the owner of the computer running the simulation that is our world, and asked if he was willing to reduce the human population by more than half, the choice seemed obvious. But that was before he realized a much harsher fate would be waiting for mankind if he refused.
