YMMV / Doppelgänger

Tropes present in the book:

  • Magnificent Bastard: In Witch, Satomi manages to be this and still a (mostly) sympathetic character.
  • Moral Event Horizon: Shimi. Kills. Babies.
  • Woolseyism: The German titles. The whole reason the English titles were changed was because some executive felt the two didn't go together, making it difficult for casual readers to realize they were a series. Unfortunately, the new titles make very little sense if you've read the books. Thanks to compound words, the Germans managed to avoid both problems awesomely, by calling the books Doppelganger and Hexenkrieger (essentially, witch-warrior).
