This is not a story about a guy trapped in a game world.

Well, it is I suppose it is. But thats not the point.

What it’s really about is New Communicate Online, the buggiest, most sadistic singleplayer VRMMO known to man. Come, marvel at the legend of the Master Torch and its Underground Dojo. Learn why repeatedly slamming your head into a wall at breakneck speeds is the true path to power. Weep at the tragic fate of the Armor Knights of the Cave of Trials. And fall in love with... more>> the greatest, most lovingly modelled cat ears in all of gaming.

Basically, its a glitch speedrun in novel form. And its amazing.

The non-glitch related parts are quite good, too, which doesn’t hurt. <<less

A comedic spin on transported to game world fad. The novel satirizes the illogical nature of games, and the fact a game would never work as a real world due to the limitations of games. The main character is brought into a fantasy world that highly resembles a game that he is addicted to. The game was created by heavily flawed developers that loved to abuse their customers, and focused heavily on their fetishes while ignoring glaring bugs in the game. Its funny.

Things I like about the series:

While the setting overall is fairly standard (MC transported into a game world), the execution on this concept is great. The MC is in some ways OP, since he has a complete understanding of the world mechanics while those living in the world do not. However, the author does a spectacular job keeping the tension of the world high by making the setting a place filled with a multitude of ludicrous bugs, odd quests, and exploits.

My summary of the setting doesn’t... more>> do it justice. Each new situation is made interesting, especially as the MC’s actions are pretty silly to a common person, since he is abusing bugs and exploits. The contrast between the MC’s thoughts, the game-world character’s thoughts, and the background information on the prior game world really does make for an interesting read.

The NPC(s) (which is so far mostly the first heroine) also so far well written. They have distinctive traits left over from the game world to start, but as time goes on, the character is getting fleshed out more and more as the story progresses.

Things I don’t like about this series:

So far, I haven’t run into any complaints (at the time of the writing of this review, up to V1c5 was released).

Overall Evaluation:

Read this. Especially if you have interest in reincarnation / gameworld stories, or just interest in humorous stories overall. <<less

I really didn't manage to get into this story at all.

It's not that the story is terrible, or that the writing or translation would make it unreadable, it's fine on those points.

It's just that the flow, the descriptions and explanations, everything is just "this world is a game I already know".

... more>> The premise might sound interesting, but sadly the author forgot to make the NPCs into proper living beings, so the whole world feels dead from the very start, and we are left a story that's not really that catching.

It might have worked if the author had made us discover the quests and bugs along with the story, but we are introduced with quite a lot of the "bugs" and "quests" right from the start, without the character actually encountering most of it, making all of it even more artificial.

That said, as the writing isn't that bad, and the translation correct, it's ok to give it a go. Just remember, each "chapter" is really long, so don't think "meh, parts for each chapter, lazy translator". <<less
