Oh no, the MC is accidentally killed by a god. Because of the mistake, the MC starts a second life in a parallel world. God revives his body and he is allowed to take and use his smartphone. He comes across various people while making important comrades and before the MC is aware of it, he has discovered this world’s secret. He inherits the legacy of an ancient civilization and he goes around the world nonchalantly while having power that matches that of the god in this world.

Boring.

No real conflict or strife, bad guys are immediately recognizable and are hapless before the main character. Supporting cast is superficial and uninteresting, social and class differences are mentioned but never play into anything concrete—the main character mingles with nobles without any trouble, a fucking Earl gives lip to a Duke without any consequences, the mc essentially tries to casually kill a noble and no one cares etc.— those pesky old nobility are racist and backwards and are trying to plot the destruction of those poor beastmen because reasons while... more>> the sickly king on his deathbed is worrying about the alliance with the beastman kingdom instead of his family.

Main character is bland and uninspired; his weapons and magic have no actual flavor thus the fights are boring and short, with no room for turnabouts or climaxes.

Translation is decent enough and the writing is acceptable. <<less

Messing around with no real objective. Bad sense of humor and comedy. Below average fighting scene with plot hole big enough to drive a truck through. Standard characteristics with stupid decision making. Bad romance plot with little to no development after nearly 100 chapters then rush right to marriage. The only thing salvageable is some scenes where the MC actually have any brain and the girls not being a bunch of mannequins, which actually make me keep going to chap 95.

MC gets reincarnated and is given the choice to bring any one item. He chooses his smartphone, which God turns into an OP smartphone. It’s a decent story, pretty average. Smart MC who isn’t a wuss, always a plus. There is a harem, he's pretty much a magnet for girls. The phone is a little too OP, but since this novel gives off more of a slice of life vibe, it doesn’t detract from the value too much.

It's one of the rare long running series that still managed to stay somewhat entertaining even to it's 400 chapters, a lot of long running series even though the beginning are interesting they're running out of gas and become boring after hundreds of chapters. Altough with the precaution of that it's not bad but it's also not groundbreaking; it stays in the line of interesting enough to read even though it's not a masterpiece.

Maybe because even though the MC is OP and his power keeps increasing, the obstacle is... more>> also increasing in proportion with the MC's growth too. The author is smart enough in rising the scale of the world in the series in keeping it somewhat interesting.

What helps keeping it interesting is it's having a rather clear goal troughout the series, compared to other WNs that lost the sense of goal along the way. For some time the MC needs to collect a series of thing, another time there's a clear set of enemy to defeat. Though it's true that it's somewhat simplistic but it's reassuring that the MC have somekind of purpose to achieve.

From half point from the series there's a minor genre shift into something else, but it's a good thing. For those who are curious about the genre shift:
Spoiler

it's introducing mecha elements in the series to defeat new kind of enemies

Slice-of-life-y story about an OP teenager in a fantasy world, after being killed by error by a God, he's given several boons to make up for the problem as he's reincarnated/sent into a fantasy world.
He's gifted with a working smartphone, which gives him access to his previous world's internet but in read-only mode, it also has a complete set of maps for his new world between other things. He's also given an OP body (and a charisma level through the roof).

The light and fluffy comedy slice of life is solid, and enjoyably.

Though I understand the MC's personality. He has an OP smartphone and an OP powers and yet he easily go with the flow and is pretty passive when it comes to decision makings when it involves the girls around him. Passive being, he obviously sense what the girls wants and without any resistance he just go with the girls .

It also gives off a slice of life feeling in a different world even though his reactions aren't really realistic especially his interactions with the people who inhabited the... more>> world.

I understand that the gods are watching him for amusement and may be the reason for his good and easy interactions with people but...

Really, it just doesn't seem right to me.

I guess what I really want to say is...

The MC IS BORING! HE HAS A SMARTPHONE FULL OF KNOWLEDGE. BUT HE HAS NO BUSINESS SKILLS WHAT SO EVER. IF IT WASN'T FOR HIS RELATIONS WITH PEOPLE WITH CONNECTIONS HE WOULD STILL BE PROBABLY STAYING ON AN INN WITH NO STABLE INCOME UNLESS HE GOES OFF ADVENTURING FOR QUESTS.

Though I admit, there are some parts that shows the cool side of MC but still... He has no ambition what so ever.

I'd probably continue reading it if a person like Weed is in his circumstances. Now that would be interesting!

Its a good lighthearted series. The characters are well fleshed out and are well written. There are many cliches in the story but its meant to be like that. The author doesn't make things overly complicated or overly simple and manages to stay in between them just like how a series like this should be. Its similar to Death March to an extent, at least till now, not in a bad way too.

Its not epic or awesome in the sense but its not boring too, I thoroughly enjoyed it.

Odd and wacky and lovable for all the reasons we might like our typical campy animes.

For me who like to read leisurely without too much tension, this one is quite good.

My biggest problem would be the character list... The story goes a bit fast, and each female character have only a few chapter to express themselves correctly... (I only (kinda) remembre Lindsey, Elsie, Yae, Rin and Yumina and i have to look at the illustration to remember...(by the way i remember most character of most of the novel i read so i don't know why this happen with this novel...)) So beside their role,... more>> i have forgotten most of their name, and have to tryhard remembering each time one is mentionned... <<less

The main selling point of the novel as I see is how the MC makes everyone around him dumbfounded. Expecting what technology he'll introduces next, how he'll develop his skills, weapons etc, and how he'll handle his companions was entertaining for leisure reading.

Downside, side characters are a bit 2D while he himself looks like didn't think too much and cared about his surroundings. Plot starts at 70 +chapter.

Indeed, a light-hearted harem, typical tension-less MC. Unfortunately, this falls into the typical trap that often comes with light-hearted stories, there's basically no plot, and since this doesn't bring in anything new, the only thing going for it is admiring the side characters. I'll give it a 3 for at least not having any huge negatives, but it isn't worth reading as anything more than filler.

Classic Amazing and interesting Japanese setting with an unfortunately classic Japanese character (I mean even back in the 1600s Japanese characters were terrible, I mean tales of genji is about a cuck not that theres that here)

MC isn't as bad as some Japanese are but he's bad enough that'll you'll get annoyed as you read the story to the point of quitting, and restarting when you have nothing else to read. Think Deathmarch MC but less OP and a lot more going with the flow.

I detest Harems and Polygamy relationships but this one is a must read.

-Everything is well written

-The ideas the author comes up with are simple but brilliant

... more>> -The author really knows how to smooth things over.

The thing that I hate the most is. The Author has to choose “Action” or “Comedy”. You can’t do both. Its very predictable and its easy to tell that the Mc will always win. There’s hardly a challenge. Its because there’s no exact Genre to lean forward too, there’s no plot or character development.

The Author is just simply hilarious and I can’t stop laughing at the things the Mc goes through. The Characters he comes up with are also good.

Honestly this story could be so much better. And it has mad potential. But it feels somewhat wasted like this. He could definitely write a story better then this! So why?!

I enjoy the author enough to be curious of when he creates a new series. I’d definitely like to read it. <<less

I'm normally a fan of Japanese Isekai genre. Unfortunately, this story is just so-so. The MC is OP and has been given some great boons by a god. The MC is quite smart, so it's not like he's dense or stupid. His reliance on his smartphone is boring, though. I understand that this is wish fulfillment, but the story could've been better.

It's the usual Japanese slice-of-life with OP MC travels to another world and builds his own harem. Up to chapter 37, character building is still so-so and there are no significant conflict, though it may come later. It is of the 'slow-warm-up' category in which all the little conflicts get finished nicely. A good read to free minds of worries, but not the type that can make people feels involved.
