    "Such a good book by a great publisher, Haikasoru. The whole Battle Roayle Theme is such a great plot system. I really loved the Hunger Games and this is no exception, it creates such a different twist similar to how fortnite twisted PUBG and made it better."

    "This book isn't the best by Haikasoru. Some of this book, Phantasm Japan, was just too weird to get into, and that seemed to be a common theme here. Some where okay, but move along, not the best. "

    "I had always heard about this one, but it was kind of hard to find in English for a long time. Haikasoru has been bringing out some gems, and this is one of the most anticipated among them. Despite criticism it's truly among the best, and if you think it's unoriginal, think about the fact that it influenced a lot of what came after it."

    "Slum Online is a very intriguing and immersive novel. This is a fairly short read, but probably the best from Haikasoru and my favorite Sakurazaka about the Japanese culture. "

    ""Genocidal Organ" is a science fiction story with a lot of violence and action in it but it's more than just that. It is an examination of various profound topics. Not only does it entertain you, but it also asks some deep questions. What is the price of the freedom, are we willing to pay that price or is it worth paying at all... "

    "I really like Haikasoru works I've read in the past and wanted to try something different. I'm looking for something that's really good, so I want recommendations of what's considered the best. I think that The Future is Japanese is a solid recommendation. It has good ratings from those that have read it, and it says that the selections are written by some of the best writers in the world. I will definitely be considering this book."
