The Saga of Tanya the Evil, Vol. 1 - Carlo Collodi, Emily Balistrieri, Kevin Steinbach

"The best thing is that with these clean results, I won't be put on trial for war crimes. Even after the war, it won't be a problem - how about that! In other words, killing one person is a crime, but killing a pile of them gets you a medal. Most people would find that inconsistent, but economic theory makes it acceptable."


The salaryman reminds us once again that he is an awful person, and also that the world is awful.


This book is occasional good bits stitched together with boring and difficult to follow bits. I'm currently slogging through one of the boring parts. Some sort of battle, with Tanya accompanied by a relatively new recruit who mistakenly thinks Tanya actually cares about her. I hope I hit one of the good bits soon.
