    (there's tl;dr version at the bottom)
    Written by Yoshino Takumi, who also wrote Boukyaku no Haou Roland, Rain was started in 2005 and was adapted to manga, and a side-story (detailing mc's journey to the Mist Valley, where he met and train under a vampire)

    The story tells of a genius, narcisstic swordsman shrouded in mystery in a southern country named Rain. There, he serves the country, Sunkwoll, as one of its military general. Being a commoner-born and former mercenaries, Rain is not one to adhere to common courtesy and manner within the royal courts, resulting in him being disliked by most of the nobles, the king included. However it is his militaristic abilities that kept him the position.

    A lot of countries hold him in high regard. Rain's dossier list him with terrifying amount of extraordinary feats, second to none. Mythical being in legends, places that no one ever survived, defeating enemy troop multiple times the number of his own, unpardonable criminal status in a certain country, a messiah in another country, etcetera etcetera. Rain's fame (and infamy) also gains him several nicknames. among them were;
    • the man who wears thin clothing even in winter
    • megaphone
    • womanizer

    ================
    Personally, i've been following the manga version since its early days. I've also follwed the novel's translation few years ago, but it was dropped after 1 volume. Tbh, until recently, i no longer hold any hope for ever being able to read the continuation anymore. Therefore a heartfelt thanks toward Rainy Translations for picking this up.

    I also find the manga versions far better looking. basically, the girls are drawn cuter, more beautiful, especially Sylvia :blobnosebleed:

    Unfortunately however, the manga also left out a lot of details, such as the scene before assassination attempt in v2c2 (manga equivalent c11)
    =================

    TL;DR version

    -mc is a genius, op swordsman, who happens to also be able to use magic
    -mc is obsessed at getting as strong as possible :blobhero:
    -mc is also schemer and adept at winning war(s) by tactics:blobsmirk:
    -this story is harem; :blobpopcorn: so, haters, begone (throws salt) :blobsalt:
    • there's a princess who seems weak at first, until 'something within her awakens, causing her to have 'split personalities'
    • there's a silver-haired, twin-tailed, dual-large-swords-wielding immortal vampire (whos not a flat-chested loli, thankfully)
    • there's a demon with skimpy outfit, tsundere-ish personality
    • there's subordinate(s). a money-grubber, a poor swordswoman, a noble with medusa-ish hair, a kuudere beauty.
    -mc is not dense (y)

    I read 53 chapters a few years ago and literally forgot 99% of the story so decided to re-read it a few weeks ago and there were only +10 chapters than what I read the first time. So I guess you will have to wait a really long time if you want to hoard decent amount of chapters.
    Well Manga at least... i believe novels translations are even slower

    Silvia all the way. I've been reading the Chinese manga translations and there is a pretty big revelation coming up that I can't wait for in English. It's only a monthly so it is only like 1 year ahead though the translations are consistent. I agree for the shout out to rainy trans though. This is one of those in my most wanted but was never picked up novels list.

    IIRC, the manga is far more advanced than the LN/WN (as in translation), right?
