Warrior Academy: A Hiro's Journey - Episode 1 (Warrior Academy)

WarriorAcademy.jpg

After the world is destroyed earth's last survivors start anew. Now in a world forever changed, a place where magic is real, and monsters have come to life. A place where magic and science blend with pop culture… Welcome to Warrior Academy.

Hiro begins his journey and starts his first year at WA. Join him for adventure, romance, and revenge.

If you like video games, music, anime, and just pop culture in general… you will love Warrior Academy. Its Harry Potter meets Naruto with a little Dragon Ball Z and Dungeons and Dragons thrown in for fun, oh and don’t forget a smattering of High School Musical…

This is the first episode in an as yet to be determined long series, at least 13 episodes, I’m debating on 26…

(P.S. There is an attached Youtube and/or Spotify playlist meant to be listened to with the episode. Think of it as a Soundtrack.)

 

My Opinion: 326 pages, $2.99, Available on Kindle Unlimited

From the author of the hilarious Eryth Online series comes a more mature slice of high school life LitRPG. The author describes it as Its Harry Potter meets Naruto with a little Dragon Ball Z and Dungeons and Dragons thrown in for fun. As odd as it may seem, that’s pretty accurate.

The novel combines a magical ninja academy story with tournament style fighting and RPG descriptions of powers. It’s a fun read with lots of pop culture references.

The only downside for me was the lack of definite RPG progression for most of this first novel. There’s lots of setup in this first episode of the various powers, their descriptions, how the school works, who’s who. But very little power growth occurs. It’s still an action filled adventure but I’d hoped to see some skills and powers evolve or grow more.

Still, a good read that is a bit more mainstream than the author’s other series.

Score: 7 out of 10
