Back to the Battlefield: The Veteran Heroes Return to the Fray! Volume 1 - terrible. MC has such low self-esteem that I wonder why he just doesn't kill himself and be done. The other characters read like the author picked a single trope for them and dialed it up to eleven. Dropped. Not worth giving a rating to.

Magic Stone Gourmet: Eating Magical Power Made Me the Strongest Volume 4 - A lot happening this volume. Maybe the pacing was a bit too fast, but it wasn't bad; I'm just nitpicking. I did like that the plot twist that was foreshadowed got a little more to it than what one could see coming for a while. It's like they hid that twist inside another. I'm not sure yet if this will turn out to be a big thing or just a minor detail in the next volumes, but the potential is there. I could do without the harem shenanigans though. - 7/10

Reborn to Master the Blade: From Hero-King to Extraordinary Squire ♀ Volume 9&10 - I enjoyed myself reading it. There was more of a highland plot and worldbuilding fleshed out. Some cool fights and for some reason shrunk-ray. I can't fanthom a reason why an author would include something like that. Perfect read when I was feeling under the weather. 7/10

The Water Magician: Arc 1 Volume 1 - The trek through the mountains was enjoyable. The Ice thing was mildly infuriating as my understanding of molecular thermodynamics was different but I would need to double check to judge the author. IDK if i will read the second volume. 6/10

The Ice thing was mildly infuriating

The part where he consciously imagined each atom to stop vibrating individually was where it took me a lot of suspension of disbelief to continue.

Reincarnated as the last of my kind - Vol 1 to Vol 2

It was good enough to hook me into reading the 2nd volume, but not enough to keep me reading. I might keep it as a series I pick up every so often when I don’t know what to read.

Making Magic - Vol 6

It’s much like the other volumes in which it is self contained and the problem is dealt with within the book. But it had a lot of call backs to previous characters which was nice. Still enjoying the series and will be picking up the next one.

Reincarnated as the last of my kind

It was so unremarkable that I can't even remember what happened skimming through illustrations.

A race of super beings gets wiped out and sends their last baby down the river in a wicker basket. It gets picked up and then raised by an adventurer running a roadside inn. Then comes a mythical beast along who flies the kid to some remote holy land where the kid is told it's their savior. That's where I dropped it.

The LN had so many unmitigated religious connotations it wasn't even funny anymore.

Was that the one with the little Moses/Superman girl getting raised in a inn?

Yeah, sent down the river by her parents in a basket.

Then ended up being raised at an inn.
