About How NOT to Summon a Demon Lord Novel Volume 1
How Not to Summon a Demon Lord Novel Volume 1 was written by Yukiya Murasaki and features illustrations by Takahiro Tsurusaki.
In the MMORPG Cross Reverie, Takuma Sakamoto is so powerful that he is lauded as the "Demon Lord" by other players. One day, he is summoned to a world outside his own-- but with the same appearance he had in the game! There, he meets two girls who both proclaim themselves to be his Summoner. They perform an Enslavement Ritual to turn him into their Summon... but that's when Takuma's passive ability "Magic Reflection" activates! Instead, it is the girls who become enslaved! Though Takuma may be the strongest Sorcerer there is, he has no idea how to talk with other people. It is here he makes his choice: to act based on his persona from the game! "Amazing? But of course... I am Diablo, the being known and feared as the Demon Lord!"
Ratings & Reviews
High Quality Light Novel Paperback
by Austin -
This review will mostly be in relation to the physical book, and not the story. If you watched the anime, I highly recommend reading this series as well.
I have been following the digital edition of this series on J-Novel's website, and was very happy to finally purchase it in paperback, and boy am I stunned by the quality. This is JNC's first print (along with Smartphone), and they blew it out of the park. Size is 5 inches by 7 inches (just barely taller than Shield Hero), and it is very thin, like about the average Yen Press novel. So it is basically the same size as it is in Japan, and I love how compact it is. You could fit it in a large pocket if you wanted to. Font is very readable, all illustrations are perfect, translation is very good. Cover has a very nice matte finish.
Overall, I love the size and quality of the book, and I am looking forward to more physical books from J-Novel.
