    Normal in Parenthesis—The Old Will and the Dawn to All | Our World

    Realistic Fiction Romance Comedy Drama Slice of Life School Life

    3.7

    "The world is unfair and unjust." Is someone without his emotions can still be called 'human'? Or is one abnormal? Somehow, not everyone that appears to look human can't be technically human in this world. Gin Sakato, a high school student finds himself in a normal life that he sought for and obtained. But everything changed just right after he was starting to discover his once lost emotions. With a life changing event, he faces the darkness of the reality and stood with courage, found his own self, found the love that saved him from the chasm and learn what is the reason of his being. Was it Gin that influenced the people around him, or was it the other way around? Every one of them knows that one thing is for certain—the only constant thing in the world is change. It was the relentless force that led them to their cheers of glee, and cries of regrets. They realized: while there is despair, there is hope; and while there is hope, it does not mean that hopelessness will never fall anew. But in the midst of the storm, Gin, and everyone that clung to hope continued to push forward in their normal life and world. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Status: Novel has been completed. A sequel will be continuing the story in 'Rainbow of the Horizon'. Sequel: https://www.webnovel.com/book/13403669205696305/Rainbow-of-the-Horizon

    Rainbow of the Horizon—Illuminating Our Darkened Path | Our World

    Realistic Fiction Romance Comedy Drama Slice of Life School Life

    "The world is unfair and unjust… that's the second time I've said that, haven't I?" Gin Sakato and Ringo Akanami's somewhat eventful life continued together with his ever so increasing number of companions in the unpredictable world they live in and discover its urban obscurity, as they blur the line of the 'unbelievables' and 'believables'. New people and new happenings came to their life as they move forward in the hardships and mishaps that are bound to test their individual strengths to survive in this (normal) world. But the sun's hope comes shining down after the rain of despair and sometimes, rainbows of bliss spreads in the horizon. Remembering the past, living in the present, and molding the future is what they have learned and instilled to their minds as their individual roles. And therefore, the journey of life continues awaiting the uncertain tomorrow. 'Rainbow of the Horizon' is a sequel to 'Normal in Parenthesis'. Prequel: https://www.webnovel.com/book/12466790606528905/Normal-in-Parenthesis ※ Will also be in Royal Road.

Gourmet_DAO: There are all objects of study - one feature, they do not like noisy places, crowds of people, apparently the effect of medical research?

Now they say the future is not the development of technology and even not medicine, but the future belongs to mutant viruses, microbes, they become stronger, medical preparations in the future will not be able to cope with them so quickly.

Only those who have immunity will survive. And it can only be for those who eat healthy food, organic and not chemical.

And in the novel, poor kids have already undergone treatment with various drugs; their immunity is low ... poor.

Thank you, the author, apparently the story promises to be intriguing.

Book_Keeper: Hello, your novel has been reviewed by Virtual Bookshelf.
A review excerpt is as follows:

Technical:

Okay overall. A common mistake was the lack of commas before conjunctions of independent clauses.

Characters:

Gin – Great start to his character building in the prologue. It delved into his mind very nicely, and the following chapters consistently showed his personality. Chapter 7 is another good example of his thoughts, albeit, somewhat drawn out.

The new students – Way too many. If all of them are necessary to the story, then more deeply introduce one of them when they all first appear, have him/her interact with Gin. Later on, introduce the remaining one by one, or at most, two at a time. Chapter 5 introduced Ringo and Shiro in more depth after their initial appearance, but the continuous amount of dialogue made reading sluggish. Either cut back and only include important conversation or which best expresses personality, or add action verbs to the speech—since continuous lines of ****** dialogue/quotes should be done in moderation—as well as gestures and settings to make the conversation more realistic and less tedious. This holds for other chapters with strings of continuous dialogue, too.

Otakus. This is used too much and shouldn’t be the defining point of a character. Go beyond this.

Nani. Again, used too much. A few times is funny.

Plot:

Sound waves, interesting. After the teacher explained this disaster, the proceeding chapters lacked intensity or any apparent development.

POV switches such as in Chapter 6… Especially in first person, if you’re switching POV, clarify who it is before you continue the story. For example, Gin’s POV or Rin’s POV. Additionally, try to limit switches to at most every few chapters. Frequent switches in a single chapter or a couple of chapters is too confusing (especially if the POV is not clarified beforehand) and hurts the reading flow. The only time when POV’s might not be rightly clarified are in mystery stories, but even then, it must be done with caution.

Chapter 8, the story picks up again with new insights on time, world, and MC’s bone regeneration ability. .........(cont.)

The full review:

After three chapters, you may request to be assessed again.
Thank you, and the best of luck on your writing endeavors! :)

Nightmare_Taichou: Thank you! But in terms of the Sekai vs. Japanese terms, I modelled off their language. In Kanji, they have different readings, Kun'yomi, On'yomi and Nanori. For example, there are two kanji in the MC's name. On'yomi reading: "Yu-ri", Kun'yomi reading: "Tomo-Kotowari", Nanori: "Tooru/Osamu". So that is why in Sekai even though they use the same kanji, some words are pronounced differently to go with the story's premise that even though they are the same, they're still different. Do you get it?

Now I understand. Thanks for the clarification. :) View More

AkaGin: I'm simply overjoyed to find a Japanese or anime/manga-ish setting as I don't see them a lot in this portal. I don't usually read fantasy novels but if mixed with the said setting and isekai genre, I got to like this.

The description and elaboration of the world is great and the characters are well-written and described. I've seen and read the kind of story elsewhere but it never gets old and new concepts are being established.

But there are some things that did not sit well, like the concept where Sekai terms are generally Japanese terms even though MC ought to be able to understand it since he himself is Japanese.

With all that said, Cross Worlds is a great story and I'll be sure to continue reading the novel. Keep up the good work! :)

His character came out as a trope as I decided the premise of the novel more than a year ago when all was still on a whim; but I found Webnovel, thankfully.

I can at least think that there might be changes to him in the future and I try to incorporate more of the characters.

I got the inspiration of writing this since I'm a big fan of slice of life because of their nigh similarity to reality. I still can't find myself writing other genres as it would look meh at this moment. Therefore I try to improve. :) View More

Nightmare_Taichou: This novel is...different from what I'm used to.

The writing quality is fine, there may be a few sentences where words could be swapped with another for better fluency, but that's the least.

The stability of updates seem to okay, but I can't comment on that as it is now.

The character design for me, Gin was it? He seems like an MC from one of those slice of life anime. But was this deliberate? Since the nature of your novel seems to highlight Gin, a boy who (correct me if I'm wrong) thinks he's normal but in comparison to everyone else, he's really not?

Furthermore, this novel felt like a seinen mixed with slice of life manga in novel form. Overall, this novel is pretty deep, considering it deals with finding purpose and consciousness(?) which gives it the seinen feel I mentioned earlier.

The beginning was a little dry for me, maybe it's because I steer clear from first person POV novels, but if it's deliberate given the nature of Gin, then it's understandable.

Still, I hope this doesn't stop you from writing. It's interesting, just not my type.

But Good luck with it!

ChessityFlames: I think overall the book is great but there is room for improvement such as grammar. I do enjoy the occasional funny moments and I like the use of Japanese names as I am an anime fanatic. The starting can be a little confusing and dry but as I continued reading, it moved on to the character and it is great that you’ve added background information regarding Gin such as the place he lives in. Continue writing and good luck! Do not let any negative comments or review stop you from writing.

Jamison_C: The book felt like an anime in novel form.

Can see the author making efforts to establish his premise.

Fans of classroom settings etc may find this suited to their tastes.
