WARNING! SPOILERS OF NOVELS MAY BE SITED! TURN BACK IF YOU HATE SPOILERS! What is one of the stupidest reasons you dropped a novel or stopped reading one? Bad translations, dropped by author/translator and the like arnt really stupid reasons. I ask this cause a novel I started reading had me going alright, its largest flaw til I stopped reading it was the author had the Over Explanation trait near max level. Annoying but acceptable, can always skip the unneeded paragraphs on game elements. So what actually made me drop this novel? Cant say I HAVE dropped it, just havnt read it for a few days and im only on chapter 32 of something like 300 translated. So what has given me pause then? The MC is an older individual, like 45/46 when he died and reborn (is that transmigration of the soul or just reincarnation?) in another world. During his life he was in the JSDF, GDF and trained with Bayonet then, instead of taking the time to train with a spear, sword or any other 15th century weapon he decides to make a stick roughly shaped like a rifle and continue using a bayonet in this new world! Look I get it, hes attached to bayonets and its kinda like a glaive but cmon if your gonna use that atleast make a functioning gun to stick it on instead of a crappy malformed spear. But besides wanting to give the MC a novel weapon, theres literally no reason to do this. He was born as an infant and could take the time to learn a weapon that wont get him some weird stares all the time. Anyways, its a weird reason to stop reading/think of dropping a novel which got me thinking.."what other reasons that might come across as stupid to others have others dropped a novel for?" so, tada! To mods, if you feel Spoiler should be the main prefix or im just too stupid to attach 2 Prefix, feel free to tack on Spoiler. Also feel free to move this thread if you feel it belongs somewhere else . ah for reference its Otoko Nara Ikkokuichijou no Aruji o Mezasa Nakya, ne? Oh and I guess this could be a like PS? If a thread like this exists, oops? I did Search for one but considering the word "Novel" is in it, almost every thread in existence gets pinged as a potential search.
