Chapter 4 of Psycome out!
Whoever is working on this is fast.
Oh goody, best girl chapter.
I want to motorboat those Renkos
A new js06 is born.
May God bless him.
Renko isn't bad so far, but I prefer Eri.
Maybe js06 threw some of his cores to work on psycome while the rest are busy with Kamachi and Kawakami stuff.
Who's translating this? Nothing on the project staff page and the guy who's posting in the forums is a Guest.
This looks pretty sweet.
Good God that drop dead gorgeous art.
Wish the scans were a bit better.
What's the key for?
i'd her cocytus.
whats her kill count?
She's a carrier for the humanity extinction virus.
What a tweest.
So are her and Kyousuke gonna have many pandemic children?
When is crazy Imouto joining?
Right before the translator quits.
Glad to see someone picked this series up. Time to start reading.
It's the same guy posting them on the wiki. He just posts them on the forum and the wiki, for whatever reason.
You can see his name by viewing the page history.
Is this his first series?
His English above the average Baka-Tsuki translators.
Seems to be so. He hasn't said jack shit about himself, so who the fuck actually knows.
I'd say he's at least a native English speaker, but with little writing experience. I only say that because he has some questionable punctuation in places, which are common mistakes for most English speakers.
Dreadlocks saying "bitch ass punk" made my day, though. It was so fitting and I don't think I've seen anyone do that in my Japanese media before.
So why is she wearing a gas mask?
Because her breath is dangerous.
"Nice to meet you, everyone. I am Japan's homegrown Ted Bundy, Saotome Shinji. Fufu... May I ask if anyone knows Ted Bundy? Do note it's Bundy, not panties, okay? A rare American strangler and my most revered serial killer. I'm nowhere near his great feat of thirty kills... Just two, and both of them girls. I did them after strangling them with my bare hands. That feeling from my fingers, and that last moan on their Last Breath, absolutely wonderful. Of course, what came after that was also... Fufufu. Let's be frank here, I'm a necrophiliac. I love killed ladies who look like pretty dolls. Especially ones like Akabane Eiri who was up here earlier! --Ah, also, Kamiya Kyousuke-san. I am sincerely filled with respect for your accomplishments in murder, you know? Let's be friends from now on."
Wow. This is dangerously edgy.
was that some bloke in his class?
He's something of a joke character like Mohican.
Yeah, first chapter, during introductions.
Still, I'm not saying edgy=bad
Pretty sure that's the entire point of everything: a super edgy highschool.
I personally like how the MC can apparently beat people up without even trying, but tries to apply "normal" reasoning to it to make it look like nothing. Reminds me of Zaregoto's MC, to a much lesser extent.
I've been looking for another LN to read, is this any good?
Strangler-kun, dreads, and creepy-kun stay around, it seems.
As much as I love Kon, what's that image supposed to convey?
I was positively surprised at this, Renko best girl.
MC reminds me of Shinobu, it's cute how he reveals his real thoughts sometimes. Don't really know how come he doesn't get that he has super strenght.
Patting you on the head.
these are actually murders, they have full freedom to be cringe worthy edgy.
I'm cool with that.
>Don't really know how come he doesn't get that he has super strenght.
It's probably from his 'getting stronger' phase and what makes him psychotic. His reasoning earlier was that the gangster was faking his arm being broken, to pick a fight despite it being a light nudge.
I personally think he just can't control his strength very well. Could be wrong, of course, seeing as he restrained Clumsy-chan in the cafeteria without hurting her.
>Although the hardness of the gas mask was hurting him, Kyousuke was starting to half-seriously think--"A gas mask is fine too."
This man knows his stuff. Also those tattooed arms hnnnghn
Nor did he kill any of the attackers in chapter 4, which suggest that he in fact did not kill the goons he is convicted of killing. The gang leader may have been faking a broken arm.
I thought he was just really good at fighting, and that everyone else in the school has no fighting experience since they outright kill people.
This story would not be complete without such a 'shocking twist'
His sister killed the goons
Now that would be a enjoyable twist.
I'm going to be dissapointed if he doesn't end up killing someone by the end of this, preferable everyone except the winning girl.
It's a good thing you won't see the end of this.
I want to know who this translator is because they are so fucking based.
Don't know about multiple personalities, but he's fine with Renko being endangered so that he can find out more about her, that's psycho if I've ever heard of one.
I'm pleasantly surprised by the MC so far.
And he got a woody when he thought he could hear Renko being tortured through the classroom wall.
When was the last time you've seen a MC talking about his boner?
More importantly, when's the last time you seen a MC actually get a boner from being surrounded by hot girls?
So he's a self-named pacifist?
>So he's a self-named pacifist?
Kind of? He doesn't pick fights, but he sure as hell doesn't run from them.
Another weird thing about MC is that he seems to be really scary to ordinary people, possibly even murderers. Why is this?
But is he a barbarian enamored with civilization too?
He's less aversive to girls than Godou.
But yeah. He will fight back as long as he's provoked.
Read chapter 1 again.
Using these two fists of iron, he had blown away naughty brats who had bulled Ayaka, blown away delinquents whom the naughty brats had summoned to avenge them, blown away hooligans whom the delinquents had summoned to avenge them, blown away ruffians whom the hooligans had summoned to avenge them...
Before he knew, he was already known as the Slayer and Megadeath.
Exaggerated nicknames attracted unbelievably troublesome characters thirsting for fights.
Thanks to that, apart from those types of characters, people all feared Kyousuke, especially girls. As soon as Kyousuke tried to strike up conversation, they would react in abject fear... Whenever Kyousuke confessed to a crush, the girl would immediately reject him by kneeling, prostrating and begging him for mercy. This sort of thing left a certain degree of trauma in Kyousuke's heart.
>known as the Slayer and Megadeath.
thats pretty fucking metal
just read chapter 4.
What a twist.
Looking at the last chapter, "Rusted and Rotten Claws", I guess its an Eiri end.
Only 4 volumes are out currently, it's still ognoing.
v4 was clearly Eiri volume.
I like the thought process of the protagonist.
I couldn't help but think of NT9's Touma as an Index fan.
>Normal highschool boy
>OH SHIT SHE LUNGED AT MY THROAT WITH A KNIFE
>punch her lights out
At least he's not going:
>muh I cant hit girls..
But Anon, hitting girls is wrong. Unless you believe in gender equality.
What's with the chuuni Azrael guy?
Can you be more specific?
>"Gwahhhhhhh!? Calm down! Calm down, Azrael! Thou canst release 'Heaven Shall Burn' anon! 'Tis going to get the surroundings caught up!"
>"Ku!? Settle down! Settle down, mine arm! ...Alas, 'tis released. We shall be the ones to send him to the grave. But now is not the time. Endure, endure, Azrael!"
The peanut gallery.
what if they aren't living their lives correctly?
What's wrong with a chuuni wanting to kill someone who's strong? That's pretty much his shtick.
MC have some serious anger issue.
He needs to take it easy.
>His sister killed the goons
>blown away delinquents whom the naughty brats had summoned to avenge them
>blown away hooligans whom the delinquents had summoned to avenge them
>blown away ruffians whom the hooligans had summoned to avenge them...
I bet his sister want to stop MC suffering for protecting her from those guys so she decided to stop the cycle by killing them (hence no one will summoned the next wave of ruffians).
Turn out what she doing only make MC suffered.
I will link this post in the future thread if my guess is right.
God damn it I want more.. Eiri and Renko are pretty weirdly balanced since I was under the impression that Renko was the main heroine, so far the first 4 chapters have been more about her.
Not that I'm complaining, but I need more Renko.
The Teacher is fucking insane.
That twist at the end of ch4 is gonna make this a fairly interesting setting.
Would be great if Kyousuke ends up as a professional assassin working in a team with his harem
Looks more like it'll end up a platoon by the end of it.
Will the mc have a harem later on?
He already has one.
Why is Renko so love-love and perfect?
>Not standing up and displaying his engorged member to loli-sempai
What a beta MC
She's not a senpai, she's a fucking deranged nutcase that would literally chop it off.
>Kyousuke backed away wordlessly. Then the Bob Sapp-lookalike, christened Bob henceforth, apparently trying to close the distance between her and Kyousuke, moved her stout, elephant-like leg.
I would let her chop off my dick.
That's too much even for me.
I've just finished Chapter 2 and I'm suprised at how much I'm enjoying this, It's stupid, but fun.
How long has it been between each chapter getting translated so far?
A day to a couple days. Jsbro would be proud.
I want to find this guy and give him some money.

4 volumes in a year? That's quite fast for LNs these days.
It's usually 2 or 3 in some rare chance.
Maybe this will start a new trend of authors actually getting shit done for once. Who knows. Not that this would be popular enough to be trend setting I guess.
The norm before was 3 months between a volume.
Guess that changed at some time.
A little sad the translator didn't really try too hard with the wordplay for these, but eh.
Is this popular enough to get an anime? i mean at least 10 k in sells or something like that
Only 4 volumes out, too early.
They'll make an anime of it when the LN sales start dropping.
Anon, I've got no figures or anything, but I very much doubt that this is popular.
They're all really innocent, but they're just acting like they did for the same reasons as MC
If there were figures for this, which characters would you buy?
This is going to be the new Index
mark my words
Is this Novel from Kadokawa? because if it's from Kadokawa it will going to get an anime eventually.
I'm don't usually buy figures, but if they were for a reasonable price I would buy me a Renko. And maybe the rest. Who knows.
Renko for hotglueing purposes.
Also this series seems like just the kind to be popular on /a/, hopefully it never gets animated.
Yeah, I could see an animation of this being watered down and disappointing.
Then again, an OVA series perhaps...
Renko I guess, maybe loli-sensei.
Renko if detachable parka and gas mask.
What I wouldn't give to see these animated
Well fuck. Just a few weeks ago I complained how this will never be translated.
2 months, 4 months, 4 months. About 3 and 3 quarters months average.
XEBEC will find a way.
Anyone got a pic of his sister from latter volumes?
Oh god. With her brother gone was she not able to feed herself?
Any /k/ommando care to identify the gun?
This was painful to read
I cant believe people like stuff like this
I don't know anon, but why do you want to know?
Why do you hate fun anon?
Oh yeah I guess thats how it is, do carry on I wont post in these threads anymore.
I was just curious and bored enough that I read all thats translated so far.
The writing is really really bad, the kind of bad that youd get embarrassed if you were to present it to people with any literature knowledge (anyone that has read over 5 average books).
But yeah its "fun" so it fills a niche so to speak
It's a springfield
I'd blame the writing aspect of it on the translator himself, but even so, it's not the worst thing I've ever read.
Still, opinions and whatnot, I'll enjoy it anon, I hope you find something you enjoy.
>The writing is really really bad
Well, I read over 5 LN and I can assure you that this LN is above average.
Some LN even made me rage hard with how the story presented.
Of course I also took into account that the translation is god awful and just imagined how the phrases sounded in japanese, I disregarded the wording and sentence structure when making my judgement of the writing, but thats common in fan LN translations, seems the level of the translators that apply for these is even lower than with doujins.
I do enjoy a few things, less and less everyday but meh what can you do.
>any literature knowledge
You seem to lack this as well. Your post shows very little of it, and you provided no examples.
Yes, I know you're one of those Anons that just likes trolling LN threads.
>the kind of bad that youd get embarrassed if you were to present it to people with any literature knowledge
Most LNs doesn't try to be a serious and deep story, they are mostly silly and like a cliche anime but in written form.
I only read sophisticated light novels written for high minded people like meself.
Nope not pandering at all here
This is real literature
It looks like a really inefficient armor, with so much armor she isn't gonna be able to move, she needs less weight and expose more skin.
I bet he is named KiriTwo.
Useless bags of fat.
More like filled with hopes and dreams, and a godlike personality.
This nutcase is way too sexy.
She doesn't really seem like a nutcase to me, atleast not as of ch 4. She's my favorite of the girls so far.
She has a fang as well?
She is like Chocola with tattoos
I'd lick tomato juice off of her, if you know what I mean.
You basically know nothing about her, anon.
I do know she's got a nice body and a refreshing personality.
Of course that all might change.
>I do know she's got a nice body and a refreshing personality.
So does Strangler-kun. Doesn't mean he doesn't strangle girls and fuck their still-warm corpses.
And a bigger package, I also like her personality a bit more, even though I know nearly nothing about her.
Strangler-kun isn't the main heroine, Renko isn't gonna go around fucking cadavers, at least I hope.
Well, it is slightly harder for girls to do so.
Loli-sensei is brutal, was she actually planning on inserting that pipe into Eiri?
I hope not. That pipe had Mohican juice all over it.
Loli-sensei was planning to provoke our hero into saving Eiri, thereby building a sense of team.
I thought that Red hair girl was the main heroine
That's one lost hymen experience you'd probably never want to have.
I don't think she has such noble intentions.
She's a teacher. She gets paid by the success of her students. Therefore she wants them to organize. Altruism has nothing to do with it.
Renko's on the first volume cover, and the volume ends with her scenes, not to mention she's largely the focus of the volume.
Eiri was the 'first' girl we encountered, other than the Imouto I guess.
How could she know that MC wouldn't the dudes attacking him?
And why did she rape Maina's "secret hole"?
>And why did she rape Maina's "secret hole"?
Maybe she's bi.
The dudes attacking him were taking an intelligence test; had they died, that's a fail.
That's why she's best girl.
I can't wait for imouto shenanigans.
I wonder what it'd be like to have a psycho girlfriend.
Look no further than the nearest female.
Now, if you meant a 2D one things change accordingly.
I know this is bad and I'll probably know in 3 days but I can't help myself.
What's Renko's backstory?
Very healthy and plump.
Squeezable, very much so. Also much plot.
Take a look yourself.
What a deadly assfang.
You know what's deadlier? The breath she keeps in that gas mask.
I want to inhale the smell inside of her gas mask.
>MC gets a boner because he thinks Renka is being done all kinds of things
My kind of MC. Also why is Renka so lewd, he totally wants MC's 12 murder dick.
Gasmask-chan best girl
The translator is so mysterious, all he does is post the translations and doesn't say an extra word.
