In June 6, 2018, Anime News Network made a list on some of the unique yet interesting light novels, that are not yet translated. Kim Morrissy classified some of them through a feminist and Western lens, like "The Witch of Tata" (which was the 24th Grand Prize winner) were she also surmise that the fantasy "isekai was also a social commentary documentary. "And Despite some tacky moments, it's ultimately more thoughtful than you'd expect about the social pressures that face young adults in Japan." Also, stating that a Dengeki Bunko title, "86", was about "a white supremacist nation" that removed the rights and citizenship of minorities and sends them to fight drone. "The plot follows a group of child soldiers, which is commanded from afar by a well-intentioned yet painfully priviled handler."
Triggered By the Shield Hero
During December 26, 2018, Zac Bertschy tweeted was "Is Everyone ready for "Rising of the Shield Hero Discourse?" Do people really know what that shit is actually about yet?"...Zac's suggested that the anime and manga be toned down, since he didn't like the idea of the "Shield Hero's chief motivation...Is a dude getting revenge against a lady for making a false rape accusation against him and has a harem of slave women."
