Combatants Will Be Dispatched Volume 2 Review
Combatants Will Be Dispatched! continues to be an entertaining read. This volume spends a lot of time fleshing out the world and one member of the cast, which is appreciated. While the comedy might be a bit off-putting this time around, fans of Natsume Akatsuki’s work should still enjoy what it offers.

A Sister’s All You Need Volume 5 Review
Although this instalment of A Sister’s All You Need barely comes in at 140 pages, a lot happens. While I wouldn’t mind a return to the usual crazy hijinks the light novels are known for in Volume 6, for now I’m happy to have had the spotlight on the series' most undeveloped character.
