I’ve Became Able to Do Anything with My Growth Cheat, but I Can’t Seem to Get out of Being Jobless

Description

Links are NOT allowed. Format your description nicely so people can easily read them. Please use proper spacing and paragraphs.

I, Ichinosuke, failed to get a job for 100 consecutive times. Furthermore, my record is still being updated as unemployed.

On my way to a job interview, I was involved in an accident with a truck and tragically passed away.

And then, a Goddess bestowed upon me the ability to grow at a speed 400 times faster than normal, before sending me to a game-like otherworld.

However, knowing that I would not become stronger even if I continued growing while jobless, I aimed to get a job, but I found out that it was my terrible fate to remain jobless.

As my Growth Cheat and Jobless Cheat existed side-by-side in this otherworld, an adventure record, no doubt certified by the job-placement agency as a harmful book, begins here.

Awesome, I love it! Even though the plot is nothing original it's fun, well written, and translated well which is what a light novel should be. P.S. The MC is not a douche, always a plus!

Review at Chapter 88 (Quick summary at the bottom)

It's a good story which you can enjoy reading, and unless you're someone who is extremely picky, you won't get bored with this.

First of all, don't judge this based on the tittle, although the MC is Jobless, that is because he finds out that being jobless is more beneficial than getting a job. (Hint : Jobless is just a class like wizard, warrior, thief, etc..... Having the class Jobless does not mean that he is actually without a job)

If you've read "Slave... more>> Harem in the Labyrinth of the Other World", then this novel is similar to it, but personally I like this much better. The plot in this novel is much better and from the way it is progressing, I fell that it will just keep getting better as more and more secrets are being revealed (especially his little sisters past). The story has been presented in a planned manner and the events happening have their roles in the progression of the story, unlike many other novels which just throw in random stuff just to keep the novel going on even though it has no relevance to the plot.

Unlike Slave harem which is plain and just focuses on the Labyrinth, cooking and more girls, this novel has a lot more in it. Even though the setting of the story is like Slave Harem, the feel I got when reading it is more like Death March (and I really loved death march) with the way it is progressing lately (not just the feel, there are other similarities as well).

The characters are interesting and will keep you glued to this. Some of the characters like Miranda and Cenetaur are hilarious and the actions of the two idiots (forgot their name) are also quite funny (though annoying sometimes). The characters introduced in the novel are not wasted and they play their roles for the development of the story.

The MC, just like other MC's of isekai novels, is OP and his cheat ability helps him grow 400 times faster than normal people.

There isn't any major antagonist or so yet, and no major action scenes in it (at least till now). It is more of a light read.

The translation in also good which makes reading this much better

To sum it all up, if you like
OP MC
A story with less action and more plot
MC who is not a sex maniac or pervert but not dense and enjoys his time with his girls ( yes he does have sex )
Funny Characters
Slow paced story
Then you will enjoy this :) <<less

Review as of v1c4:

So far, it’s a decent but not outstanding story of a reincarnated individual in a fantasy world with a cheat ability. Rather average compared to others of the same type, but it’s too early to tell which direction the story would turn. Similar to the series Invincible Saint ~Salaryman (also by this translator), Seijo no Kaifuku Mahou, Man Picked Up By the Gods, and Atelier Tanaka. If you like those, you’d probably like this, or at least find it similar. Potential for an OP MC fairly quickly,... more>> but personality of the MC looks like it’ll head more towards the slice-of-life type story instead. Tone seems to be light-hearted and relaxed, but no wild ‘HAHA’ kind of funny moments yet. That may change in the future. Also, the title is misleading…

Spoiler

he can get out of being jobless anytime he wants, just that the benefits of remaining in it is better than not.

[collapse]

Ratings (compared to others of the same type):
Story Originality: Low
Characterization: Average
Plot: Average
Story Pacing: Slow
Humour: Average
Translation Quality: High
Translation Speed: High

Overall: Decent (3.5 out of 5) <<less

There's nothing exceptional about this story either way. It's kind of a mediocre story but inoffensive enough if you like isekai novels and game mechanics in your fantasy. It hits all the main tropes without having the main character be too pathetic or edgy, compared to other japanese novels.

Where it lost me was one point where the main character should have investigated something, and would have based on his personality and actions so far, but the author very obviously made him not investigate it while hitting the reader over the... more>> head with 'foreshadowing'. Don't make your character OP and intelligent and proactive, and then make him act out of character just for dramatic tension. There are better ways to achieve the same effects. <<less

Basically like Slave Harem. The difference, the couple in Growth Cheat isn't constantly horny for sex, and the story does not feel like a daily routine trying to progress through the labyrinth to earn their living expense. It's kept slightly fresh by having the mc and his crew to travel to different labyrinth to recieve the blessing of the goddess, with incident happenning at the towns they visit. But the incident seem so small due to the reason below.

The fighting scenes lack tension and suspense, making it pretty mild... more>> and tame, which is a huge flaw. This is obviously why the author pretty much fastforward the labyrinth exploration and action scenes. Theres really no memorable scenes.

The side story of the idoitic couple antics and the MC sister's mystery at the end of some of the chapters gives the story of fresh air since they are either enjoyable characters or cringeworthy characters depending on your taste.

Again, what hurts the novel is lacks of tensions buildup for all their comedy, conflict, and combat scenes to make it a memorable novel. <<less

Slave harem minus the sex scene. Short chapter. No great plot, just a job change specialist who is collecting slave and clearing lab. More of a slice of life, nearly no cliffhanger or build up.

Rating: 3.5 - 4 stars, Translation: 5/5

(My reviews may sound negative, but I'm just listing reasons why I didn't give 5 stars.)

[[5 star = almost all readers will enjoy. 4 star = large majority of readers will enjoy. 3 star = 50/50 of readers will enjoy. 2 star = a niche audience will enjoy. 1 star = maybe portion of niche audience will enjoy.]]

[[5/5 = Infrequent minor errors. 4/5 = Frequent minor errors or infrequent major errors, no difficulty to read. 3/5 = Frequent major errors, some difficulty to... more>> read. 2/5 = Difficult to read. 1/5 = Unreadable.]]

MC is a 20(?) year old high school dropout, who has been unsuccessfully looking for a job, after he and his sister's parents died. On his way to his last job interview, he was killed in an accident, and a goddess(es) transported him to an RPG-like world with multiple cheat abilities.

This series is basically a transported to a fantasy RPG world with cheat abilities. MC has quick leveling, everyone and everything uses a game-like system (even regular jobs and everyday life), and there's magic, combat, dungeons, demons, beasts, demi-humans, harem, slaves, and other Japanese transports.

The story is pretty standard to its genre. You won't find many new ideas. However, it doesn't waste time with too much slice of life or redundant information, that lots of other JP WN/LN suffer from. On the other hand, chapters are extremely short. The storytelling is light and smooth, and the translation is one of the best I've read so far. Characters seem typical, not much development, but they have their roles. MC doesn't have much strong motivations or goals. He's just mostly leveling up while being "jobless," and picking up slave girls. At least he doesn't run away from confrontations, which is a problem in some series in this genre. There are some side characters and side stories, and a background story to mix things up and seems to be directing the overall series along a bigger arc.

I think a medium to large majority of readers (3.5-4 stars) would find this series entertaining, even if it's not original. Some readers may lose interest if they read too many of the same type of story and was expecting something different, especially when the MC doesn't have strong challenges or goals. Some may not like harem or the cliche "good" slavery. As of c109, a turning point is nearing where the background history and a side story will meet with the MC. I don't think the rating will rise above 4, but there is potential for it to go below 3.5 if this turning point leads to a strange route or doesn't give the MC more direction. I'm enjoying it so far; we'll see how it goes. <<less

I'll say this first. The author is a troll

Its a good story, not much plot but its there. The main story is about a reincarnated person with cheat ability and go adventure (nothing new)

But, the diff is, the mc is not a dense person, he do have sex with the member and there is the romance, not just sex for fun and those them around

... more>> And, the major thing i understand after some chapter, the SIDE STORY is the ACTUAL plot, while the main story is the heartwarming part.

Does it worth it to read? Yes it is
Are there good plot? Yes it is
Is romance good? IMO it is
What about the action? Not really good, cuz the MC just blast them with some skill, even the boss fight just use 2 or 3 skill. But that what you got from OP mc so im not complain <<less

Read up to Chapter 13 so review is subject to changes:
The start is actually interesting as it gives us insight into what kind of person he was before he became a world traveler (it doesn't start off with a clique beginning). The story is fast paced (as is his leveling) with a quick introduction to the slavery qliche with a unique twist on it. Hopefully the author will give more details to the chapters in the future as the fight scenes and story telling leave much to be desired... more>> (which will probably happen as he has to reach a strong opponent some time...right?).

TL;DR: This is a very promising, although somewhat clique, wish fulfilment / slice of life story about a cheat MC living his life to the fullest. <<less

Until now it seems like the typical but good "reincarnation" story. Mc is a man but no pervert or lolicon, also does not behave like a dog in heat and has character.

Mostly no real drama since characters have plot armour even though it is not on death-march levels. Also no not to much common sense rape at the moment but maybe it will come.

"Fluffy" read and nice read

This is yet another

'This character sheet's evolution in an incidentally broken game which the MC will cheat in, that happens to be a world the author loosely designed based on games' type story.

Despite that, It's pretty good. It starts off pretty much a 'slice of life' story design- and isn't bad or particularly noteworthy in it's construction... except for the paragraphs- every sentence or 2 is it's own paragraph for some reason- but 'whatever'. In V2 the surprising, welcome and more layered story evolution starts, and it's... more>> got several simultaneous developments. By V3 it's actually pretty good, though the chapter length shortens somewhat.

The good:
Doesn't start with truck-san
Has a fairly enjoyable story, with some good humor thrown in now and then.

Explores the divergent path of non-combat XP techniques

The bad:
Spoiler

horse-san, why so cruel?

[collapse]
The concept of 'jobless' is perpetuated through semantics juggling.
The world economics are pretty much nonsense.
The writing is riddled with expositional afterthoughts. It's clearly written 'off the top of the head' of the author, and 'corrected/expanded' as he progresses (even though plotting does develop as it progresses.
Almost every random occurrence turns into some sort of 'win by accident' or 'win by OP' event. Any surviving setback turns into a benefit eventually.
Spoiler

Going to sell my starting clothes... oh they're super valuable? Really?

[collapse]
Casual 'Predatory/motherly X-dressing gay stereotype' for humor.
Casual view of some 'cleaned up' form of slavery (lots of justifications).
The MC starts out as an idiot. Thankfully that doesn't last too long. The story, characters, and setting are all pretty much simple and cliche- BUT it does get better.
'Gamey' game rules are actually enforced world rules. (ie- Cannot equip 'wrong-class' items. jobs tied to limits & rules for acquisition/progress). Surprisingly, this is used to good effect by the author for occasional humor (and of course to frame problem solving/advancement tactics).

The different:
The 'author's notes' both betray the 'slapped together' story construction, and give interesting insight to the author's writing process and the story's popularity at the time.

Overall? Worth reading- just know the first 8 chaps or so are pretty weak. <<less

Well... actually it's good but... it's to mainstream. And i also read so many novel that look like this before. And it's not bad but there's other that as good as this or more good than this. That's why i only give it 3. What make it interesting is yandere imouto element on it. And there's big plot twist regarding that. So that's why i'm looking forward at the continuation of the story

The story is about ichinosuke, who have lost both his parents and now his life, reincarnated to other-gamelike-world, receiving cheats from Godesses but remains jobless.

The characters have deep backgrounds and likeable, especially ichinojo with his OPness and righteous mind.

It's a bit early and the story has many promising features, and i'm looking forward to more plot in the future.

Recommended for those who like OP MC, deep side chara, funny moments, status window, gamelike otherworld

Similar to: Legendary Moonlight Sculptor (in terms of status window haha)
