One chapter down. On the one hand, I feel a slight sense of accomplishment for having finished my first light novel chapter (Slashdog was technically a web novel and DxD EX was a Blu Ray special). On the other hand, I find it somewhat troubling that all that work literally amounts to HALF of the first anime episode. Moreover, the entire first chapter is 100% devoid of female characters. Seriously, how am I supposed to get people to read a chapter that has no women in it?
On the bright side, I do plan to make up for it with my next release. Vandread Extra Stage Chapter 1 is essentially all female characters so hopefully that balances things out. I’ve already got 2 of 3 parts done so it shouldn’t take too long.
I’m also planning to begin working on a teaser project page on B-T. Not sure when I’ll get around to it but anyone who wants to edit, proofread, or otherwise contribute, just keep your eyes peeled.
And with that, I present the first chapter of Vandread.
