Um, everyone seriously thinks Claire is a guy? I mean, sure I figured out his real gender from artwork you posted, but come on. Did no one see this girl changing or something?! /smack for idiotic question

Anyway, good chapter and nice little fight in the beginning. Guess the [the Reaper] and Yuuto 's battle shall come another time. T.T

The backstory with Claire is indeed interesting, but I don't think Ennis should be that antsy towards him because of their families' past. Though, the ending of this chapter has me thinking there's some sort dark side to Claire.

Well, again the fights are good. I like how they flow with the sword play and magic use.

And thank god, I'm glad we cleared the air about the Kamui and killing issue for Yuuto at least. Now...If only Miya is there...

And Yuuto, that was...Alright of a taunt at the end...Even though you're not killing them and mention Hell. XD

Keep it up!

(Damn it, I hate FP for removing the copy-paste function, so I'll be lazy and quote partially, m'kay?)

Yo, Louis-sama, I'm back. Prepare yourself.

Ah, recap at the start of the chapter for lazy readers like me. Much appreciated *w*

And fanservice scene at the plight of a poor female character. Some things just don't change in Bladearc, don't they? ;)

[Well, I had fought an army before...]
- Classic Yuuto deadpan. ;)

- "JOIN MY HAREM!" and then belting out that harem warriors song would have been a more appropriate response.

Seconds Edge's comments about Vivio and Yuuto being a gigolo (for uniqueness sake, I shall be different! *wind blows my handsome hair*)

Ennis' reaction to Yuuto's new occupation is a lot milder than I would have expected though. Maybe she doesn't mind sharing her man. /shotkickedrocketedtothemoon

Really like the character interactions in this chapter. I believe there is something behind Kamui's characters. w

Swimming pool episode? owo Oho.

That ending has me hype to see what happens next. Though I expect Yuuto to win the deal. I sense his darker side coming in, which is much better than his current character.

Dang...that tension of Miya and Kamui despite not mentioned was still sticking out like a sore thumb.

And again, someone actually apologizing for doing things without considering the consequences that they do regret! Amazing!

back then, Yuuto would have agreed but now, he can see that he might have a chance. A load of character development shown there.

And damn, what's with people unable to let go of past issues? I mean with Claire association with family, and the dark knight situation? People, he's not evil! O_o

Keep it up!

...Whoa, that's...Extreme.

I get what Kamui is saying but the thing is...She's really pushing Yuuto into something he's not really prepared or willing to do just yet.

I mean she apologized...But I doubt the others can see her the same way again.

...I really hope this doesn't have Ludd involved if the Reaper assessments of him are indeed true...

Keep it up!

...Yeah, saying idiot a lot is a tad too much for me. -w-

Nevertheless, again Ennis surprises me and admits her mistreatment of Claire was pretty damn unfair. And yay, relationship upgrade for Yuuto/Ennis! XD

And...Death ruins it by giving a hardcore tragic love story. Yay. -w-

Keep it up!
DevilPogoStick chapter 15 . 12/8/2013
Oh...Damn, at least we know why Claire is..not exactly happy with Yuuto with enough intentions to even try to kill him.

And dammit, how can Yuuto find the right words? Jesus, he's like a harem machine. O_o

And my god, I hope people will under stand Claire a lot better soon...And that Ludd is some sith lord. XD

Keep it up!
DevilPogoStick chapter 14 . 12/8/2013
...Okay, there must be an explanation for that whole backstabbing disorder.

Because to be honest, I'm getting a little annoyed by Claire's secretive...Ness and now that it's revealed she's a woman only wants me to know...What is her deal?!

Yuuto tries to be the good guy, almost gets killed, and then...His would be killer is all nice and stuff again.

...I need to think a lot about this. XD

Keep it up!
DevilPogoStick chapter 13 . 12/8/2013
Yes Yuuto, be a good person and screw what people say! XD

But nevertheless, very interesting back story about Claire. Perhaps Yuuto can convince Ennis and many others that...Well, Claire isn't exactly like the rest of the nobles who pretty much just caused a lot of grief.

The duel was great...Did not expect the blood though... *imagines if Yuuto did something by accident... O_O*

Keep it up!
DevilPogoStick chapter 12 . 12/7/2013
*gasps* my god...A tsundere apologizing for hitting her love interest and actually feeling bad about it right off the bat?! O_o

...I love Ennis even more now. XD

Otherwise, Yuuto is too kind...And too much of a downer everytime I recall his whole "I'm a wimp, I can't do this" attitude he has most of the time. And now...He's finally shedding that part out and is coming out a badass.

Keep it up!
DevilPogoStick chapter 11 . 12/7/2013
And yes...He had to say Harem Warriors. -w-

I'll be a tad honest, never was much a fan of harems since I feel like it can be done very well or in a way very messy with little to no tight ends being sealed at the very end.

...I hope this will be a successful one.

And I feel like someone should have just told Yuuto more about his class...i mean come on Ennis...He would have loved that explanation during that training! XD

Keep it up!

The second chapter, and already, one of the girls is getting naked! I wonder if Ennis's mumbling is a clue to a traumatized past. To be honest, it's gonna be hard for me to warm up the Ennis; the tsudere character simply doesn't appeal to me.
DevilPogoStick chapter 10 . 12/7/2013
Okey-dokey then, looks like another team up!

Sometimes, I wish Yuuto wasn't that savvy...if that last word of his was sarcasm or just not excited at all. XD

Ludd seems to be a pretty badass figure and Kamui again shows some promise...I'm just surprised over the accusation at first. :3

Keep it up!

Hello, Louis! I guess I'll at least leave a short review.

The story's still entertaining, with the character interactions being the most interesting points to me so far. Also, your quick-paced action never fails to please.

Few things that you could improve on:
Your writing, definitely. I think that you could use more synonyms especially if the same noun appears in the same sentence and at times, paragraph. Yuuto's narration felt a bit repetitive and a bit overloaded at times - overloaded as in I thought the narration at times overshadowed the descriptions and actions - but I think the writing in this chapter got better towards the end. You still have moments of good flow in your prose, and your writing remains easy to read. Perhaps you could Google search tips on grammar, writing devices and the like.

Next would be my thoughts concerning the story as a whole. I'll address what I think is the biggest issue I have: BladeArc's setting. MMORPG elements or elements suggesting of that appeared very early in the story, so I've kind of been having difficulty relating or figuring out what you wanted to portray via your setting. Settings should be like characters, with their own unique characteristics, developments, and more. I think you're going for a high fantasy world, but the MMO-like characteristics could be reconsidered and revised with more inspired high fantasy ones, especially if your story is not intended to be set in an MMO.

Second would be issues of genuine tension. There are a lot of abilities, items, and events which make Yuuto's journey easier than I would've liked. He learns very fast, his powers are among the most powerful of all characters so far, he recovers very fast, he wins over people very fast, and it's just, I feel that you could have given him much more of a challenge. More rivals. More conflict within the group that remains on their minds for a bit longer. More questions. More things to question Yuuto's capability as a hero. The ride has been pretty entertaining so far and Yuuto does go through quite a bit of development, but I just feel that there could have been more, I guess.

As for Ludd, I think Yuuto could have had a bit more reflections or narration regarding Ludd before this chapter, considering the rather important role Ludd plays in the story now.

Yeap, I nit-picked quite a bit, but I'd just like to end this review by saying that you do deliver on the plus points of your story. Fast-paced action, lively cast despite the harem and moe antics, and a plot that's progressing. Most of the things I commented on could be reflected upon after you finish the whole story first, and then you may do revisions as you please. For now, have fun and continue writing! And I'll definitely be reading this till the end.
