My Family Name Is Yugano My Given Name Is Yuuki I Have No Redeeming Qualities So Begins This Light Novel Of A Girl Corrupted By The Internet, And Then Summoned To Another World She S Jaded From Having Already read Many Stories Like That But Will That Prepare Her For What Awaits In This World Of Course Not But She S Going To Plunge Ahead Anyway, And Not Slow Down For Anything Eliezer Yudkowsky Is The Author Of Harry Potter And The Methods Of Rationality And Rationality From AI To Zombies He Is A Decision Theorist Specializing In Self Reference And Reflection, A Fact Which Unstoppably Infects His Writing No Matter How Frivolous This is a short book, but it is also an awesome book You know how Japanese light novels are all about someone going to another world to be the main hero, builds a harem of beautiful girls all trying to marry him and he still be this super pure and wholesome young boy man that can t do anything because he s trying to get with his sweetheart Yeah, take all of those thoughts and throw them out This is definitely a western light novel in build, but that s where it all stops This is in the vein of JK Haru is a Sex Worker in Another World but instead of working in a brothel, this girl is working the planet This book is very tongue in cheek and has a highly perverted main character becoming pretty much the lord of hell view spoiler She freaking ends up getting SATAN s soul Not like, finding it, but OWNING it hide spoiler Even if the race of Earth can t win at anything else, we won t lose at degenerate pornography Yugano Yuuki is a girl that has sunken to the greatest depths of depravity that only the Internet can provide When the holy white mages of another world cry out for a pure unsullied hero to save their world from evil, they get way than they bargained for Now, Yuuki plans to take this righteous world of black and white moralities for everything she can A summoned hero the likes of which have never been seen before.
This book was hilarious I loved every moment of it The only problem is that it is so short I d love to see of this world Perverted, snarky hero Yuuki isn t interested in saving the world, all she wants is to fulfill her basest desires I really had fun reading this I loved Methods of Rationality, so when I saw the author promoting this I knew I had to read it.
Nice little fun story abo As in Harry Potter and the Methods of Rationality, Eliezer Yudkowsky takes a fantasy world and lets the characters really test the tropes.
The laws of fantasy often seem less like natural laws and like human rules constructed to drive the plot Which, I suppose, is exactly what they are Yudkowsky lets his characters push back by complying with the letter of the fantasy laws while violating their spirit The characters don t drop into the narrative roles that the world seems to push them toward Instead, they act the way real people would by gaming the system.
Unfortunately, there s only a limited amount to explore here Maybe it s a function of the Japanese light novel, but this breezes along to a very rapid conclusion It s only 74 pages long, according to Overall Fun and intere Eliezer Yudkowsky, what are you doing I get enough strange looks when I say that my favourite book is a Harry Potter fanfic, now I ll have to explain why I liked a book about a girl who likes porn a lot A good illustration of why the genre doesn t matter, but the content does Before I ve read this, I had no idea that there was the whole summoned hero genre, but the clich s are pretty much universal, and the quality of their circumvention is easily measurable by the yaaaay s your inner voice excitedly squeaks when you like the plot devices Also, yup, if you by any chance dislike sex, thoughts of sex, even thoughts of sex, did i actually mention sex yet, thoughts of perverse sex, the absence of the actual sex and cool plots, you might want to avoid reading this, but if it s not possible, I d suggest to shut your kindle and think about a certain beautifu
I m not familiar at all with the genre Japanese light novel , even less the subgenre hero summoned into another world , but this book is written as one of those apparently It s also a rational fic a genre I m familiar with.
If Harry Potter and the Methods of Rationality is the fictional mirror of Rationality From AI to Zombies, then this fiction is the fictional mirror of Timeless Decision Theory all by the same author I think being somewhat familiar with timeless decision theory, or at least some of its problems, such as Newcomb s problem, makes this fiction enjoyable so just Google that before reading the fic Having some deviant sexual interests or just liking to watch porn really might be another aspect making this fiction interesting.
Japanese light novel style apparently means a very informal first person present tense narration Also, reading the authorial foreword, hero summoned to another world is a genre now.
This was charming, funny, and very silly.
I think I could do without the weird title, though If I recommend this book to anyone it will be as the latest thing Eliezer Yudkowsky wrote.
Content note roughly 75% of text is about sex Text contains no actual sex.
Definitely a good read to pick up if you re looking for something a little less ordinary.
