Ryuuou no Oshigoto! (The Ryuo’s Work is Never Done!) Volume 3: Talent, Effort, and Admiration

While the first two volumes of popular light novel series Ryuuou no Oshigoto! (The Ryuo’s Work is Never Done!) was mostly an introduction to Yaichi’s two disciples, the third volume went on to establish the development for one of the characters that is mainly overlooked before. Being a volume that heavily brings up the theme of talent and hard work, it still remains one of my favorite parts of the series.

Anyway, you can join the Discord server here to talk about the series. And as usual, spoiler warning.

Ryuuou no Oshigoto! (The Ryuo’s Work is Never Done!) Volume 1 & Volume 2: The Start of a Journey

Two years since its first volume was published, Ryuuou no Oshigoto! (The Ryuo’s Work is Never Done!) has managed to hit the first place in Kono Light Novel ga Sugoi! twice in a row, achieve one million overall sales, and secure an anime adaptation which will be coming up soon. All these achievements are nothing short of impressive for a series that doesn’t play by the book—amidst the industry where stories about reincarnation, life in another world, or edgy antisocial protagonists who double as a sorry excuse for the readers’ self-insert material dominate the market, Ryuuou no Oshigoto! shows us the possibility of having a light novel about a board game coming up on top.
