When the Majin awoke from the depths of darkness, the deity of fate chose six heroes and bequeathed them with the power to save the world. Adlet Mayer, a boy who proclaims himself the strongest on Earth, has been selected among the Rokka no Yuusha (Braves of the Six Flowers), and he goes to the rendezvous point. The heroes suspect that someone amongst them is an imposter, and the initial suspicion falls on Adlet.

Status:
Ongoing

Published:
August 25th, 2011 to ?

Author:
Story by Ishio Yamagata. Illustrated by Miyagi.

After the Anime released, I showed the interest in this series and began reading the light novel soon after the first episode! Although I am not fully caught up to the light novel, I have a decent understanding of the plot and what is going on!

This thread's purpose is to discuss the light novel, it's differences with the Anime, and the infamous topic on who the fake brave is! For those sensitive to spoilers, please mind the spoiler tags and read at your own discretion!

You can now release who the fake brave is (with a spoiler tag) to your hearts content! Now, let us discuss!!

Good initiative! Well, if someone dare to spoil me about volume 6 before I can get my hand on it (ordered it but still haven't received it), I'll hate that guy forever!
Now that it's said well... I don't know how peoples on CR forums read this novel to be honest. ^^'

Haven't watched it bar the first episode so I don't know what they have or haven't mentioned yet.

Edit: Spoiler contains spoilers from volume 5 so don't click if you don't want spoiled. :Edit

Come on now. That's a spoiler from volume 5 you're giving. If there's anyone else than me on that board opening that spoiler tag, that would be a huge blow. Either delete it or properly add above it "spoiler volume 5".
Especially since you know as well as me as in 4 episodes they cannot be to volume 5 since they are intending to cover the volume 1 in like 8-12 episodes so you know that very well -_-.

I really dislike peoples who spoil other in such carefree manner, and I'm clearly not liking what you just did.
Also, you're wrong about a part of it, which makes actually me think that you just read spoiler without reading the novel. Either that or you clearly didn't understand one of the explanation given. Anyway, that's still a very bad spoiler.

Oh, and was that scene with Nashetania added? I don't know why it was there, don't remember reading that. That was really useless, but maybe that was made so that the episode as a whole was of the proper length while finishing where they wanted, they needed to win a few seconds more or something.... But they again used her as a useless character even though she's not useless at all. Stop doing that Passione please, you're doing a good job at adapting but that's already the second scene you added to push on the watcher the idea of Nashetania being useless/unstable... Which is obviously wrong.


I took that from the anime thread and put it here so I can discuss it without spoiling things. I haven't read the LN, I know the fake is Nashetania because I looked it up. I actually took a guess that it was Nashetania when the topic came up and simply went to confirm my suspicions. Why did I think it was Nashetania? Because 1) We know that Adlet is not the fake, we saw the symbol appear on his hand, 2) Fremy has absolutely no logical reason to pose as one of the 6 so it's not her. 3) If it's not Adlet and not Fremy, then the only other interesting choice is Nashetania, and honestly I wouldn't have at all cared if it was anyone else.

Anyway so the being useless/unstable thing. If you remember correctly, they mentioned in episode 2 or 3 that anyone aside from the 6 would die a painful death from all the miasma or whatever of the demon land. The fact that Nashetania got dizzy and tired I believe is supposed to be a hint that she does not have protection and is thus weakened. They keep dropping hints that the fake is Nashetania.

if you didnt want it to be spoiled, why are you reading a thread that warned of spoilers in the OP?

That's not what I'm saying. I'm saying to add above the spoiler tag the volume concerned by what is inside the spoiler tag so that peoples won't open it if they haven't read that volume. Because the spoiler in that is froma volume untranslated yet. Most peoples who could come here don't read japanese, they read the english translation. So if they open the spoiler tag thinking it's about a plot point they already known, they will be spoiled extremely hard in a matter of second. And the way that person did it, it IS intentional.

No I don't know that because I've stated I'm not following the anime. Some novel adaptations adapt 2-4 volumes in a single season or even a single volume every 2 episodes. I've not seen it posted anywhere on the anime information what volumes it will be covering.

Also this wasn't in the very first post at all was it ¬_¬

"This thread's purpose is to discuss the light novel, it's differences with the Anime, and the infamous topic on who the fake brave is! For those sensitive to spoilers, please mind the spoiler tags and read at your own discretion!

I did exactly that. It may not have been in a way you personal deem an acceptable way to spoil it but that's fine with me as everyone has their own standards on this sort of thing. I'll keep my nose out of this thread as well now cause I'm a spoiler whore XD

Edit: I think this may be the sort of thread that should be divided up into "current volume discussion" and "English release discussion" to avoid any issues. Having to dance around discussing the novel in a novel discussion because not everyone has read the same bits of the novel is an interesting concept to me...

For those arguing against spoiling and hiding spoilers using a tag, please remember that you are to read at your own discretion. Also, this is the light novel discussion thread. This is intended to make sure you are responsible and are at fault for your own actions, and not others, so if you are spoiled, then that is all on you.

The novel is only six volumes or will it have more than that?
Sadly, I don't understand Japanese. I'm eagerly waiting on the translation.
I downloaded Vol. 5 just to see the artwork but it really pains my inability to read it.
I never wanted to know the ending of something as badly as this!

That's manner to indicate above the spoiler tag what is the spoiler about. "spoiler volume 5" would be enough really to avoid english readers to be heavily spoiled. Actually editing his post to post a joke instead of adding this is just rude for any user who will opening it without knowing about the volume 5 content.

But heh, if anyone agrees with him rather that with me on this, my answer is simple. I haven't read volume 6 yet. So I don't want to be spoiled about it. Since you're unable to behave in proper manner about spoiler, this thread is without me from now on. I like how the usual lack of manner in that type of thread can exclude from discussions even peoples speaking japanese and therefore peoples further away than the english readers on an english board.

volume 6 is just the last out, it's not the last volume. The story isn't finished yet. It was published around one week ago
