Grimgar of Fantasy and Ash: Volume 1

Why are we doing this...?

When Haruhiro came to, he was in the darkness. Not knowing why was he here, or where "here" even was. With him were others who also remembered little more than their own names. What they found when they came out of the underground was a world that was "just like a game." In order to survive, Haruhiro forms a party with others in the same situation as him, learns skills, and takes his first steps forward into the world of Grimgar as a trainee volunteer soldier.

Not knowing what awaits him... This is a tale of adventure born from the ashes.

My Opinion: 268 pages, $6.99 and Not available on Kindle Unlimited.

This is one of my favorite international LitRPG series.

The international work has finally been translated into English, officially. Already a popular anime, this is the story of people from earth who are mysteriously transported to a fantasy world where you have to fight monsters to survive. A more brutal and realistic take on the ‘transported to a fantasy world’ troupe, the series still involves learning new skills, leveling up, and learning magic. A great example of what LitRPG is across the seas.

Score:  7 out of 10
