Yuuji Adirata was a high school student who possessed supernatural abilities, he can see ghosts and demons, and is capable of interacting with them. This ability threatens his life and scared the hell out of him until when chased by ghost infants, he was saved by Natsumiya Reina, another student who had more experience in combating the supernatural terror, and can summon a scary, powerful supernatural dragon to exterminate her otherworldly enemies or, “purify” them. He was asked by Reina to join the SDMC (The Supernatural Disaster Management Council) and from this point, Yuuji struggled to learn to fight demons, balance it with his normal life with the aid of Reina, and tries to discover how to use his supernatural powers effectively.
First off, reading this novel is like listening to a well-played music : The right notes are hit at the right time, the playing tempo is proper, the arrangement is executed correctly and with finesse. In light novel terms, this translates to a perfectly emulated Japanese Light Novel reading experience, only in Indonesian language. The character descriptions are well written, the demons are described perfectly, their scariness conveyed through grotesque details and they were just like actual demons, with all the threats and dangers inherent to them, the passages of text reads flows smoothly and has this vibrancy in its’ choice of words so that the scenes are experienced, you might be able to picture it directly in your head as an anime episode playing. More so when it’s the action scenes, the visceral, raw flow of battle and the almost sensual description of Reina makes you want it to be adapted to an anime series really soon. The suspense, the threats of danger in battle, an air of mystery and an atmosphere of a volatile world, ready to burst into a supernatural hell anytime permeate the novel. Those strong points were the best sides of the novel. Kudos to the writer for crafting such a wonderful story.
Now for the flaws or what I would call, parts that can be improved. The description of atmosphere (i.e. situations or locations) can still be improved by using more articulate sentences to make this novel a near perfect work, where people will be thoroughly engrossed and immersed reading this. Second, it’s use of tropes known to Japanese LNs and manga/anime are executed perfectly, but the author needs to find where and what his signature is, to make it more distinct and different from other writers. And third, although there are not many characters as of now, (and less of a flaw and more of a warning), is that I hope when more characters are introduced, the writer can make the best of them ,and maintain the same sense of dread and danger in this LN, otherwise it might not fulfill the expectations for a horror work and only classified as a supernatural battle LN.
All in all, a very worthy reading material and I salute the author for this great work.
