(Um, Sorry) I’ve Been Reincarnated!
August 4, 2016
Status: c157
Warning for those expecting this to be harem, no it's not harem/romance, it's BL tease instead. Every romance flag is shot down splendidly by the MC. There are 2 heroines which supposed to be romantic interest for the MC, but he's dense as blackhole and even in the end there's no development on romance part. The author herself is lamenting that the MC is actually friendzoning his heroine lol, yep, romance tag is a fake tag that the author herself gave the stamp of approval that the romance with... more>> the heroine won't get anywhere. What will you get at most is not so interesting or funny or romantic SOL, and feels like obligated checklist of it. Name it: study session, visiting MC's home on vacation, culture festival, obligatory summer activities, fireworks, splitting watermelon etc. And BL tease.

So if you're looking for romance with the girls around the MC steer away from this series, but if you liked a lot of ikemen interacting with a shota in somewhat slight BL vibe you will probably like reading this. By the way, there are more than 3 ikemen in the series that's at least one of them always around the MC. Even on a christmas bonus chapter the MC prefer doing a date with his ikemen tutor lol, and the MC fawning over his tutor's "gap moe" do-S ikemen liking sweet cakes lol.

At first it seems like mushoku tensei and the other isekai tensei genre and it looks like it have potential to be a good story, but as the story progressing it's becoming bland instead. My particular problem is the author giving the MC too much power, well some OPness is fine but if it makes the story bland it's bad. And the MC's power is on the level of deus ex machina, he can do anything without any restraint, it won't be a stretch to call him a literal god in this series.

Example of his OP power
Spoiler

he can turn any imaginable concept into reality, he need to restrain somebody? He will use "restrain" magic. He need to find somebody? He will use "find xxx" magic. He need to move quickly? He will use "teleport/fly" magic. Something broken? He will use "repair" magic. He need to fight a legendary being that can destroy a country? He will use "dimension cutter" magic with an umbrella/stage prop. Even in the end of the series he used "time stop" magic to defeat all his enemies...

[collapse]

Conclusion: the moment an enemy or obstacle appears, he will use an extremely convenient magic that fit the situation to solve it instantly, in the same chapter. The author herself have admitted in her foot notes that she's not good on writing conflicts/fighting scenes, so it's probably a plot device so that the MC can just skip the conflict as fast as possible.

Heavy spoiler about relationship chart of this series:

Spoiler

First maid heroine Chiffone only appearing like three times in the whole series, first being her introduction and the rest are joke chapters. Second appereance during the MC's school vacation he take the elf heroine back to his mansion, she lashes out that some bug is attaching to the MC. The third and final appearance is at the end of the series, she's confronting the ikemen tutor and accuse him as gay and shotacon and that he is the most probable winner of the harem since she realizes that the MC only regards her as a maid and the elf heroine is in the BFF promise of a friendzone.

The second elf heroine Sephys is having one chapter form her point of view in her introduction phase, describing how she's having a crush at the first sight with the MC, then no progress whatsoever and near the end of the series the MC put her in the friendzone (after that she's not even mentioned at all, not even on the final chapter.)

Meanwhile we got a seme do-S black haired ikemen tutor who the author jokingly refer to him as "Princess" in her digest chapters. He's "interested" with the MC and the MC interacts with him the most. The maid heroine regards him as shotacon and gay, and she states that he have the highest chance in the MC's harem.

Then we got a legendary male white dragon summon with a very fitting and creative name "Shiro" that's pretty much useless since the MC is a god, right after his first dragon form introduction he magically transform into human form, ikemen. Then the dragon form is forgotten that he never appears at all in dragon form. He got no important role in the main story and only act as butt joke.

Lastly we have an adult ikemen leader of the most elite secret service group "ninja" yeah the name of the group is ninja and they wear ninja-ish uniform. Even though he is supposed to be the most elite personel in the whole kingdom, he easily got kidnapped (similar to the princess tutor's case) and the 8 year MC have to save this sorry excuse of a secret service agent. Well, it's basically BLish damsel in distress with a shota saving an ikemen instead, apparently the author likes this so she used this plot twice in her story arc.

And then we meet a knight fall in love with the MC when he used genderbending magic to transform into a loli, he chooses to defect from his job to aid the MC and leave his hometown so he can be with the MC. Then he found out that the MC is actually a shota. Then he's in dillema whether to keep liking the MC or not with the inclination of being shotacon is probably alright. Poor knight. MC turned him into shotacon...

There's a couple of MC's male friend in the school, one got a name with extremely terrible Japanese pun... They're not important though.

Outcast Magician and the Power of Heretics
December 14, 2016
Status: c100
Something very awkward from this is that the author spent almost all the time in describing every random battles, it's like a log of game with detailed explanation of every battles along the way. If the character is interesting or funny like kumo desu ga it's not a problem; or maybe if the battle is battle of wits like seventh it's still exciting. Unfortunately with the MC being bland it becomes a chore to read these battle logs. To make it worse the battle consisting of yelling the technique names...

And... more>> the synopsis is a lie, the author is writing spontaneously without proper planning made him veering from the track to the point of betraying the whole premise. The author even admitted a couple of times that he's not expecting the story to turn that way.

Initially the author promised the readers it will be musou/OP type characters (as shown in chapter 1), yet along the way he makes him looks weak even though he already get his "heretical" power. Even with a supposed to be feared power the MC always struggling in every fight. It seems the author either forgot the setting he set up or veering off too much that he just goes whatever... Because a lot of people feels tricked by the OP tag, in the end he's apologizing to the readers that he failed to write what he planned to, and taking back the OP premise+tag in the middle of the story.

Spoiler

After a few moment the heroine introduced, the outcast/bullied part being thrown out of the window, he turned into riajuu instead of being hated by the country as stated in the synopsis and story becomes highschool battle romcom complete with it's tournament arc... The main heroine is pretty much shoved into the MC and the affection point being MAXed abruptly. And then later the main heroine being shelved and another girl seemingly taking her role. Mind you that not even the author knows why it turned that way...

Clarifying Felix3D reviews about nanomachines, nanomachines are the one used to create miraculous phenomenon known as magic in that world, there's nanomachines in the air and people/living beings with intelectual brain can absorb then activate these nanomachines using their brainwave signal, so magic: using nanomachines to do your bidding. Nanomachines=MP; nanomachines in the air acts like mana and nanomachines absorbed into body acts like od. Normal resident of that world doesn't know the existence of nanomachines so they simply refer to it as magic. It has been properly explained. Read... more>> it properly first before blaming the author, don't tell me you're just using gibberish MTL and skipping lines...

And there's also no "You don't know how good I am until I'm gone!" tone in this series. Nope.
Contrary the MC just do anything she found interesting/fun, later with her all-girl team mates. She's an airhead, she doesn't think too deep and there's not even a spec of hint she wants people to recognize her.

Well for the review:
It's a lighthearted story with a girl MC who just do anything as she please in that world, having quite OP power but an airhead. She's doing ridiculous things and her friends act as tsukomi. The side characters are fun, so far some of them have been fleshed nicely in a story arc.

It's initially a misunderstanding story that later more focused on lighthearted adventure similar to death march with comedic vibe. <<less

The MC is stirring up trouble by himself but hating it and turned edgy when people turned hostile to him because of his own act. If in Tate Yuusha the villain is genuine evil, it's satisfying seeing the villain being defeated, but in this case the author is trying to create a bunch of characters which isn't necessarily a villain, but then the MC himself is provoking those characters for petty reasons, and when those characters turned hostile to him he killed them. Like, "I somewhat don't like this person,... more>> let's provoke them." After a while, "What the f**k I hate them they're f**king evil why are they hostile to me yeah I'll kill them, I don't feel any guilt at all killing and robbing people that I have been provoking before." In the end, "Let's just mofu mofu my cutboard harem members because everyone else but my harem is evil. F**k I hate this world."

Oh and he also robs innocent people, just because he can, and he have the gal to call other people arrogant at that. The MC is switching between "ruthless vengeful [I'll pay you back twice crueller than what you've done to me!] edgy guy" into "very kind, morally upright and gentleman Japanese highschool student" depends on whether the other person is having somewhat personality or brain to have their own needs/motives or braindead harem characters who idolizes and fawning over him who have no important lines other than constantly praising the MC to make him looks cool. Heck the harem is not even interesting... One is a bullied classmate, stereotypical taciturn shy girl, she's too shy to say or do anything that most of the time she doesn't have any importance in the story until the MC demands it. The other one is a slave, turned into a brainwashed girl idolizing the MC that doesn't have any personality other than following the MC's orders and constantly thinking of wanting his dick. There's no dynamic relationship, it's just MC: "It's A, let's do A!" harem:"Yes, A! Master is amazing~!"

That makes me remember, the MC is somewhat similar to Chinese xianxia protagonists. In which he's portrayed as a good man by the author but he will flaunt his OP power and taunts everybody and then proceeds to kill everybody who happens he doesn't like because he provokes them in the first place. It doesn't makes sense. Though Xianxia novels somewhat have a logical reason why the MC acts that way, it's because their environment are violent and full of conflicts (murder/massacre are daily news) so if they're growing in that unhealthy environment it's believable that they will grow into a psychopath. Contrarily he's supposed to be from a relatively peace and less violence/conflict Japan, an ordinary male highschooler even, but he doesn't have qualms over killing people that even seasoned veteran in war probably will have traumatic guilt trip for years. No, I don't buy the author's excuse "they're brainwashed", that's just a lazy plot device to permit illogical actions. <<less

Akuyaku Reijo Ni Koi Wo Shite

Starting pretty strong but then dwelling into a frustatingly long unresolved misunderstanding trope common in generic shoujo series. To be honest the beginning parts of the story is a 5/5 material, but somehow after that it's frustating.

The MC is a literal gigholo who can easily manipulates girls but dense as brick when it comes to the heroine. Have OP battle skills but rather stupid, he can't see glaringly obvious solution out of his problem and the author conveniently evade the subject so he/she can keep the drama going on. He... more>> can't simply consider simple act as gaining cooperation of somebody that is important, he's just busy going here and there building his connection with people with less priority but he's ignoring to inform his own master and heroine about it. It's as if you know somebody is planning to kill your lover but you don't even consider to warn her about the circumstances and instead going into bar to woo girls so those girls can tell you rumors about the perpetrator, which for some reason you can't deal with the perpretator, all the while your lover remains oblivious about the danger and often doing something dangerous because she simply doesn't know about it, but still you won't tell her about it, you're just standing there and worrying how to stop her doing dangerous acts, but you do nothing, often flapping your mouth "N- no, d-don't go there" "Why?" "Um.. nothing..." "Are you keeping a secret from me?" "Ah... no, nothing" then she goes there and you're chagrined why you can't stop her, and as expected situation goes awry, then you step up on critical moment to save the day, rinse and repeat this for couple of times. To be honest it's frustating.

And that's the second glaring annoying thing, the first and foremost annoying thing is something that if the MC simply do it, the first arc will be resolved extremely fast and simple.
Spoiler

the game heroine is an otherworlder for god sake, the same as the MC! And the MC is seemingly quite informed about gaming culture at that! He even have seen the game heroine's notes about the game capturing strategy. Why can't he consider confronting the game heroine and reveal that he's also an otherworlder?? That way he can get her cooperation to avoid harm for his master and heroine! The MC can strike a deal that the game heroine can freely capture her targets as she please but just don't harm the heroine, he can even offer helping her!

Or even better he can actually have a discussion with her and tell her that this world is not the world of game. It's normal if other people can't comprehend Maria's actions, but the MC is fully aware of it yet he's avoiding the source of the trouble.

Or he can just bang her like the other girls to get her favor, it's in line with his work ethic, but somehow he won't do it with her.

This is a story heavily influenced with deep philosophy about war and somewhat religion, the author theme is clear and concise, almost pragmatic. Though to be able to enjoy this the readers have to be accustomed on reading both academical and philosophical dissertations, actively engaging and questioning about the content that the author brought forth. If you're reading this series expecting it to be a regular narrative style, with more actions and dialogues then you probably won't be able to enjoy it.

The way the author write this series shows that... more>> he's doing a lot of research on the war as subject and a lot of contemplation to state his own opinion on war with the help of the characters in his story. Gladly he's creating believable characters each with their own philosophy so there are dynamic discussion/debate in reviewing a subject matter in the storyline.

Though maybe some people questioning "Why loli?", the author doesn't use it as a creepy fan service. It's instead used to juxtapose the contrasting concept of war and children/girl, it's to show how eerie it is when a child (a little girl at that) being dragged in a war as a soldier. It arises a lot of questionable issues; that even the characters in the story itself feels troubled about it.

It contains NONE of this:
- fan service. Despite the main character is a little girl the author never use her as fan service.
- "The enemies are evil and incompetent" The enemies have believable circumstances, not the comical incompetent enemies often depicted in Japanese light novels.
- "All of our allies are incompetent" Contrarily there are a lot of competent allies, most of them are intelectual. Usually side characters in Japanese light novels are depicted as dumb so the main character can be seen as intelectual, but in this series both side characters and main character are almost equal.

In conclusion, it's not the usual run of the mill light novel, it's a series mainly dissecting opinions and facts about war in an adult view point. <<less

WARNING this is R15 ボーイズラブ "boys love" a.k.a shounen ai D8
I read this without knowing that the author actually tagged this as R15 boys love since in NU someone put shoujo tag instead D8 (I'm the one added the tag+description straight from the author's title page just now...) Also the author is hiding the fact trough some sly means that I didn't realize it untill I read all the chapter and see the author's tag...

The author never used gender noun (男子・弟・兄・男・彼 /妹・ 姉・彼女・女--- he/she) for one of the... more>> character in the series while having ambiguous female/male name (フォルナ: which can be transliterated as Foruna/Folna/Forna/Vorna/Volna, take your pick) for god fucking sake D8 In the raws the MC ALWAYS mentions the character with ONLY name, Folna this Folna that D8 After rereading again I realized that the MC never mentioned breast when fawning about Foruna's appearance...

Though it seems the translator choose to reveal his gender clearly with adding gender noun "him" to replace every "Foruna" the MC used. Well reading Foruna this Foruna that every single sentence without replacing it with simpler gender noun in English seems like a drag indeed, unlike in Japanese it's a little bit more natural to use name.

I have nothing against boys love, I'm not hating the genre or something, if guys can have yuri then girls can have shounen ai, it's just I feel tricked both by the author and the lack of tag in NU... I've added the proper tag now and I hope nobody got tricked again.

And also the MC is a mentally ill mature woman turned into a boy. It's grating seeing the MC self-hate and negativity. If in Forrest Gump it's about a mentally ill man that's striving with positivity we can put our emphathy and cheer for him, but with the MC in this series I feel that anything bad happening to her/him is none other than the consequences of her/his own inactivity, how can we cheer for the MC if the MC doesn't want to do anything? Well, there's a room for character growth/improvement indeed, but with the rate the series going there's not much hope...

Ah and that abrupt setting change. I don't know where to start with... He claim that he doesn't want to hurt his family but then he choose the best option on hurting their feeling by abandoning them.
Spoiler

He left his family and then completely forgetting them, not even a shred of phrase is spent to bother mentioning them again. Instead everything in his mind is about how he's fawning over random boy who saved her from random tugs, and surprise surprise the whole shyness tick is abandoned for lovey dovey acts. All the first part of the story is flushed out that you'll think it's a different series...

Hillarious, since the translated chapter looks interesting and the available chapters are few, I tried to read ahead and found that this is a funny series. When it needs to be funny it's funny and when it needs to be cool it's cool, this series know how to do both in balanced manner. The side characters are fun, though the most oddball character probably is the MC's father and his vanguard maniac mindset and the reason why he became like that, oh and her mother is funny too lol.

That lolicon... more>> tag is unnecessary though, the relationship between the characters on the story is at most similar to "Gochuumon wa Usagi Desu ka?" with girls bonding in friendship and rivalry, the tag makes the series seemingly contains creepy male adult oggling the MC or something while actually there's none of it at all =_= <<less

A reincarnation into otome game genre series with thin game setting (the protagonist didn't need to try hard breaking flags since aside from characters and world from the game, almost everything else is different). Which is not bad, it's cute but it's not providing anything new in the genre. It's mostly light hearted and only at some points containing a little bit of drama. The drama is not too heavy since it's usually resolved within a few chapters.

Hon Issatsu de Kototariru Isekai Rurō Monogatari
November 10, 2016
Status: v6
I remember starting reading this because attracted from the cover illustration. This is an isekai series with somewhat ruthless battle maniac MC, actively seeking battles and often provoking for it. His power is "quoting" words from any books he have read before and materialize them into real world, so you get modern weapons such as revolver, machine guns, assault rifle, grenade etc. Besides quoting material items he can also quoting concepts, which rather similar to Konjiki no Wordmasters skill.

The MC is quite different from the usual meek MCs, he's decisive,... more>> ruthless and thrill seeking. Often times he's the one stirring troubles so he can fight. He's a tsundere guy, he acts malicious and having poisonous tongue but in the end he will lend his hand to people who asked for his help. If I remember right his trademark is asking what is the merit of him helping them first, though later he will help with trivial compensations. His skill is OP so he's kind of rarely getting in a real pinch.

Since the MC is battle maniac, most of the story arc is focused on him looking for stronger enemies to fight. He also gained some allies in the process. It's just there's no romance/harem in this series since it's taking most of it's time in fighting/conflicts.

Well, if you can past trough the MC's OP skills in bringing modern weaponry and vehichles into fantasy world it's quite entertaining to read. It's just sometimes it will feel tedious because the MC is constantly diving head first into conflicts so it's rather lacking a breather. <<less

It's a nice story when it's focusing on peaceful implementation of modern culture and technology into medieval age slice of life story, but when it's touching into political and war issues the MC’s naivety makes the story irritating pretty fast. To be honest it was one of my favorite read since it's pretty enjoyable until around chapter 100, but after that it goes downhill.

... more>>
Spoiler

Kazura's naivety's hurting the story later, he doesn't want to help the country preparing for war with two country that wanted to attack Kazura's country. Even though he know very well that if the country is being attacked they will definitely lose and all his precious acquintances will be either dead or enslaved. He's "Nope I will only provide you with food and daily necessities, I won't help with military at all." Because he doesn't want to dirty his own hands by inventing ways to produce war tools, Valletta decided to prepare for the war alone behind the scenes without Kazura knowing.

He's so reluctant taking action to protect the country that he have to call his father for advice, and as expected the father wisely told him to do the thing he needs to do so he won't regret it later. It seems it's a clue so he will finally take a countermeasure acts for the war, I'm so happy that it seems he will move the plot again, yet after that he still won't do anything as if he immediately forgot his father's advice.

Later the MC become somewhat pathetically useless compared to Valleta, basically she does all the hard work (designing new tools with the help Kazura's book, negotiate and managing craftsmen, mining steel, smithing weapons etc) while Kazura remains oblivious in his naive world with his beloved compost and windmill. He can't even perceive malicious intent at all that even a potential antagonist almost snatched Valleta from him and he only thinks of "Maybe it's fine to give her to him for the sake of her future... I think he's a nice guy." Not until Valleta cried desperately because she doesn't want to be given to that guy Kazura realized that it's stupid to hand Valleta over to the other guy. Yet later he disclose all important secret plans to this potential antagonist/bertrayer... the raws stuck at this point that even some Japanese reader also fed up with the current Kazura...

The translation quality is shaky, it's understandable but sometimes pretty off and looks like a literal translation with machine...

The MC is changing personality like chameleon, sometimes he's very stupid (the beginning part with him trying to sell things and pissed off that he got silver coins is very stupid, dude you got that world's currency as you wish on the beginning of the series), but then in the prologue with the goddes he is depicted as very sharp/smart; then he becomes a kind passionate saviour for the slave and orphanage... more>> because he feel pitiful to them, but later he becomes cold hearted unmotivated person when monsters raiding the town (definitely because the author wanted to depict him as a reluctant hero who hides his identity LOL, the author must be thinking this cliche scenes are very cool...) Conclusion: the author don't have clear idea on his own character's personality, he just write it pretty much randomly.

The series starts as aimless story without any goal at all, then abruptly in the middle of it the author decided to throw a flashback prologue explaining that in that world there's Demon Lord and Heroes fighting which doesn't have any correlation with what happening with the series at all until that point, not even foreshadowing on the world building in that world (the only one we knows from the main story are they looks like medieval age, there's merchants and adventurer guild, there's an inn and there's an orphanage, yes nothing else is known about that world...)

The author just do whatever he thinks cool at that time without planning ahead, so sometimes random plot just abruptly comes up until the end of the story... The saving grace of this series is that it's pretty short. <<less

A brave knight named Oersted, a hero beloved by the people, defeats his best friend, the wizard Straybow , in the final round of a fighting tournament, winning the right to marry Princess Alicia of Lucretia. That night, she is kidnapped by the Demon King . The next day, Oersted and Straybow set out to rescue her. First, they find the heroes who defeated the Demon King thirty years prior, the knight Hash and the priest Uranus, and convince them to join. They fight and defeat the Demon King, but Hash dies due to the plague, Alicia is nowhere to be found, and Straybow is seemingly killed by falling rocks. Oersted and Uranus return to Lucretia in defeat. That night, Oersted is tricked into slaying the King of Lucretia by an apparition of the Demon King after seeing what looks like Straybow exit his room. He is accused of being the Demon King himself, and he is later imprisoned. Uranus, who is also a prisoner for being a "demon ally", uses the last of his strength to help him escape. Oersted returns to the mountain of the Demon King and finds Straybow alive, having faked his own death. Straybow reveals that, out of jealousy for Oersted, he sold his soul to become the next Demon King, and tricked Oersted into killing the King. Oersted is forced to kill him. He then rescues Alicia, but she confesses her love for Straybow and blames Oersted's heroism for Straybow's fall to evil, she then kills herself. Oersted, in his grief, searches through his memories and realizes that he no longer has anything to believe in, anyone to love, and that he has nowhere to go. Oersted snaps, sacrifices his soul to become the next Demon King, and names himself Odio, deciding to teach humans "the folly of their selfishness". He then takes revenge on all of Lucretia, killing everyone.

Then it's turned into mindless edgelord chuuni story..... We've got a lot of heroes turned evil series already with some of them are pretty acceptable but some are cringy, this series is probably the best contender on the most cringy series among it's peers.

The story only consist of the MC mindlessly slaughtering goddesses and heroes. There's no catharsis in it since the people who he slaughters are basically innocents or doing nothing to him before he turned edgy, heck what should be his object of revenge has already been dead in the first chapter lol. Later he just acts like edgelord and spew chuuni lines such as "Curse your own fate for being born as heroes/goddess."

The author then introduces annoying characters in an attempt to make the MC seems justified to kill them, cheap lazy trick... <<less

It's a good romance even though the author plays a little bit too safe by adhering to commonly established working plot so people who reads a lot probably can guess the structure of the story easily. The story itself is rather light so it's decent for quick read and entertaining but on the other hand almost every conflict is resolved rather fast. Maybe it's like salad, easy to digest and fresh but for people who's hungry it's a little bit unsatisfying.

The author is trying too hard in creating fake tension, everytime that the MC is in battle, he always repeated his explanation that the MC is actually OP and can 1-hit-kill the enemies if he wanted to but he just don't want to do it for dubious logic while fighting a prolonged fight with too much expositions about the skills used in the fight. The catch is, every single chapter in the novel contains fighting, so you'll be reminded on every single chapter that the MC is OP regardless that... more>> he's fighting mobs like an avarage fighter in that world. "Shin actually can use his skill to kill the monster in one hit, it's just that he choose not to, because, reasons." That is actually my biggest gripe from this series. <<less

A nice relaxing story, though the beginning reminds me of +a no tachiichi where the maiden chosen by her attractive look and the one who deemed not pretty enough being abandoned almost made me feel repulsed (in +a no tachiichi the MC is being abused extremely bad because she's thought to be an extra, with ALL of the characters are assholes even the supposed to be meh love interest, or even her friend from school), fortunately it was a false alarm.

Glad that the MC in this series is a girl... more>> who is having a rather reasonable personality, she can fend herself just fine and she knows full well how to speak her anger/protests when she's being treated badly (again in comparison with +a no tachiichi where the MC just accept the abuses and pretends being fine while the readers can read her inner monologue that she's actually very depressed.)

There are romance in this series, the sweet and innocent type. The interaction between the MC and the love interest is nice to see. As usual of shoujo genre, there are one or two guys so far who fall for her, luckily there's no annoying rivalry plot between the guys. They don't disturb each others attempt to approach the MC or planning some annoying schemes to put the rival at disadvantage like the one's often depicted in childish mellodramatic shoujo stories. They simply treated her nicely and let her choose to approach the one she prefer more. Yeah it lacks conflict, but superficial conflicts sometimes too annoying and grating to read so a rather laid back and down to earth romance depiction like this feels like a breath of fresh air.

So far the characters are nice guys with the exception of the first prince, though you don't need to worry since he only met the MC once in the very beginning of the series. So far he doesn't have any futher impact to the MC's life. <<less

Beginning is not too good since it's depicting somewhat vulgar nature of bandits which seen by the MC, but if you can go past that it's a good comedy based series. The dungeon maintaining part is fun in a way that it's not taking itself too seriously and rather laid back, MC's strategies is in the "playful troll" category which is fun to see, with multiple side characters adding the hilariousity of the dungeon's surroundings. It makes the world looks lively, I mean there's dangerous monsters etc but they're still... more>> having fun. Up until the latest chapter in raws it's still fun, it keeps the laid back nature. <<less
