Episode 20 The Saga of Tanya the Evil

On this episode of the Light Novel Podcast we’re discussing the light novel series, The Saga of Tanya the Evil. This one is released in English by Yen On and has had an anime adaptation and feature film adapted from the books. It’s an interesting tale of a sociopathic Japanese HR department head who, upon getting up close and personal with a subway train, meets god. Trouble is, god isn’t your usual happy or apologetic deity we see in other isekai stories. Nope. This god is pretty upset and decides to make an example of our MC by reincarnating him in a world bound for global conflict.
