When a group of girls found the body of a girl named Yuuna, she used her powers to summon a monster that attacked Kazuma.
Kazuma then received magical abilities from the girl called “Lupin.” He uses his powers to save the world from destruction and form a party of people that follow his commands and work together to fight off the monsters that invade.
This series has been getting high ratings since it was first published in English as a serialized light novels. Some of the best light novels of all time include Sword Art Online, Spice and Wolf, A Certain Magical Index, or Hunter x Hunter. It also received much praise due to the many characters that Kazuma and his party encounter. It was highly recommended to Japanese readers because it was written in a very easy-to-read style. It also contains a good amount of action and fighting that fans have enjoyed ever since it was first published.
One of the reasons why it is so popular among Japanese readers is because of its originality. Since it uses an original fantasy world and utilizes traditional Japanese storytelling elements, it creates a refreshing change from the usual light novels and manga series.
Kazuma Satomura, who has the name of “Kusaba,” is a boy of 14 years old. He is the son of a merchant who runs the local inn in the countryside. When he was seven years old, his father became ill and died, leaving the child alone at home and to rely on his magic and his own skills.
After a certain incident, Kazuma was told by a fairy that he is destined to possess special powers that allow him to use magical abilities. He receives these powers from Lupin, who is the leader of the magical school called “Lupin’s Magic.” In order to help his son to gain his own magical abilities, Lupin gives Kazuma a spell book that contains all kinds of spells.
The two boys spend their days trying to stop the evil creatures that are plaguing their world from invading it again, but they soon discover that Lupin’s school can only be accessed through a portal in the sky. Once they make it to the school, Kazuma quickly learns that his friends and his fellow students are much more than friends. They become part of a team called “The Order,” who try to defeat the monsters that surround the school.
Because of his relationship with Lupin, Kazuma often feels somewhat like a member of the group because of how close he becomes with his friend. This makes it easier for the story to relate to the readers because there are also many times when the story draws on the friendship and loyalty between the main characters. It also helps to keep the story fresh because of how the events in the story are constantly changing due to the characters themselves.
