What I expect from a dating sim game:

    • Interesting and fun scenarios
    • Attractive female characters
What I got from a novel with dating sim in its title:

    • Isekai/school life/shounen for scenarios, such an inspiring combination
    • Brain dead and horny characters, the only thing they got going for them is their faces
If you're expecting that dating sim in its name to be something like Date A Live, you'll be disappointed. What it actually is, is the usual isekaI cheat.

As for the MC, yes he's not a dense protagonist that refuse to believe any of the girls has feeling for them. What you have here is a normal guy that know when someone got the hot for them, a guy that also knows he is leading other people on even though he has no intention to date anyone but do nothing to reject or giving answers to any of the girls, a guy so determined to stay single that he might as well just wrote 'Monk' down as his occupation. Decide for yourself which one is worse.

He is also incredibly obnoxious with how much the author reminds us how handsome he is, so handsome infact, I had suspect his penis to be glowing.

Other reviews mentions that there are no 'arrogance young master', well I have bad news for you, they are still here. It's just the author is way too busy talking about the MC's handsomeness to be bothered about giving any of those guys any screen times. Like I said, obnoxious main character.

I forgot which chapter I dropped it at, no desire to go check so I'm leaving it blank. It was after the school onmyojI battle with school prez, the only thing I have to say about that fight, is author needs to stop masturbating to the MC.

Let go of your prejudice because of the title. You think this is about way too OP cheat loser who gets harem too easily and wins his fights like on very easy mode? NO!

I am sort of a veteran of web novels and I wholy recommend it. ***It's funny***, I actually laugh every now and then and I can count the number of such novels I've read on my fingers. It's kind of a unintentional parody to IRAS and varius other novels, not a real parody because if you... more>> share my opinion, they are slightly interesting in the beginning but they overuse their jokes and get boring later.

***Are you worried about harem?*** Fear not, though there may be harem in the future, I actually want the protagonist to get all the girls! Normally I'm the type that roots for the first girl and feel others are unnecessary and ruin the depth of the story (though I don't mind the ocassional succubi, ice girl, gothic lolita). However I find all the girls lovable and ship them all! Though I don't think the protagonist is the kind who will get more than 5, even now he clearly knows one girl loves him and finds well all of them attractive, he doesn't have the time nor does he want to hurt them as he is a 30 year old wizard soul in a possesed body, while they are 15.

***Are you worried the protagonist is a loser with way too OP cheat?*** Fear not, altough the cheat is OP, conflicts are interesting and he doesn't abuse it, also he is not a loser per say, just in a loser's body ofc.

Unfortunately I hear a lot of you are indecisive when you read the reviews bashing the novels so you won't even try, you don't have to read a lot to get a feel of this novel, so I won't say it only gets good after 50 or 100 chapters, just try 2 chapters and you'll see your prejudice and the bashing reviews were wrong.

In conclusion this is a comedy/romance/action 70% JP, 30% CN novel, I know just the right measure.

This is my first time writing a review for any story on this site and I actually made an account in order to review it. I've read over 70 novels on this site for reference. I'm generally not a fan of reviews before about 30 chapters as we aren't introduced to the plot or characters in general, but this story after the first 6 chapters has just really resonated with me as being amazing. The MC isn't like any other MC from chinese stories that I've read (you know super... more>> cocky and declares that he will kill any one who sneezes in his direction). The system that the author has created for the dating sim seems like it will be pretty interesting when explained in full as the parts that they have revealed so far seem pretty interesting and unique. I'm really excited to see where this story goes and I plan on updating my review when it hits about the 150 mark, but from what I can tell the author knows how to write a very good story with intriguing characters, plus the translator and editors seem to be doing an excellent job as well.

Wow. Wow, wow, WOW.

I was seriously blown away by this novel. I was skeptical at first, and quite reluctant to start it, but since it had a "Modern Day" tag, I just had to give it a shot... and boy am I glad I did. The MC is life. Seriously. No arrogant young master/asshole/pervert/master of the universe dipsh*t bullsh*t. None of it. He is 30 years old mentally and he actually acts like it. I know what you're thinking; SHOCKER, right?

But that's not the best part, no, no. The... more>> best part isn't even his overpowered Dating Sim System (which by the way can do A LOT more than help him date, so I'm currently questioning the author's sense of naming), no, it's the plot build that really starts around 20+ chapters, when we realize that this novel isn't just going to be a slice of life but something closer to a modern wuxia packed drama...

I don't want to spoil anyone, but to those who haven't yet started to read this, I only have one question:

What are you waiting for?! <<less

This is the first time I write something like a review.

The story itself is easy going until ch. 22, I don't know what will happen in the future. I'm already sick with Xianxa tropes 'arrogant first/second young generation', which plot always brings revenge or useless dialogue and side character doesn't have unique personalities in the story.

AND IN THIS STORY... every character has a unique personality, well based on ch. 22 (of course, this is because dating SIM game element). MC likeable, polite, and his inner thought not boring... more>> at all. Oh, and a lot another POV that's will bring story keep fresh.

And yeah, CN novel with JP template that's more I like it. I hope MC doesn't have quality beta MC like a JP, because this CN novel.

[Edit 1 - Stay at ch. 200]
Until ch. 200 still easy going story (cause' save/load system), its easy going, but it has plot twist, there exist plot twist and quite fell sad moment, confronted with the enemy and MC already killed someone. I curious about his family and the system, really.


Ch. 200 still barely touch a tip of Ying Yang Master and meet with older sister one-sidely (cause' MC run and Older Sister didnt notice.)

Not a very good piece of work, although it was entertaining in the beginning at the very least. However, that feeling of fulfilling progression that you could glean from the earlier chapters is all but lost as the chapters roll by.

For one, the power creep that the MC experiences is far too fast. The author did not know how to pace the development of the main character's abilities so as a reader you are prone to quickly becoming numb to his accomplishments as the story progresses. A good author... more>> will pace out interesting developments so that they are not so close together such that you become overly familiar and indifferent to them, nor does he put these developments so far apart that the readers all but loses their interest in the intermission.

Secondly, the system that encompasses and facilitates the MC's advancement - the dating sim system - is poorly constructed. The requirements to unlock certain activities such as singing and dancing for instance seem awfully arbitrary and contrived. This extends to the entire system as a whole. It feels poorly and shabbily constructed. The author is hell-bent on making you, the reader, believe that he and his story are much smarter than they really are when what he dishes out to his audience is at the equivalent of a shoddy smoke-and-mirrors light show. All show and no substance. Don't pay attention to the finer details if you decide to read this novel as it will leave you with nothing but disappointment (and possibly disgust).

Thirdly and most importantly, the writing itself is poor. Characters are one-dimensional, meaningful plot developments are far and few between, the main character is a landmine of cringe worthy behavior and mannerisms, etc. One of the funniest parts is how flat and monotone the MC comes off as being. I can't help but feel disgust at the hypocrisy of the main character running around racking up affection points with the myriad snow-skinned fair maidens by bamboozling them about his self-fulfilling success story of how he went from zero to hunk-extraordinaire I-am-better-than-thou hero in the course of literally a week with the story of his success. He advertises himself as having reformed from being the fat, disgusting otaku that he was into Mr. Perfect through his virtue and self-reflection, when he never reflected on anything in the first place and all the work was essentially done for him by his cheat system. The author has the gall to sell the main character as being more than what he is: a shameless, clueless, hypocritical gary-stu self insert.

I'll give this work 3 stars because despite its shortcomings it can still be an entertaining read if you go through it quickly, for both the good and the bad. I recommend binging this if you decide to pick it up at all.

It's incredibly rare for me to say this, but I can't enjoy this even though it's a harem. The main problem for me is that the MC is too handsome. Yes, you read that right. Girls that usually are distant or playing hard to get are suddenly all over him because of his appearance and MC is surprised that his male classmates are jealous. So far there hasnt been one girl that treated him just normal after seeing his appearance apart from the school beauty. Some boys are trying to... more>> sabotage him with petty challenges that the MC handles effortlessly with his cheat system, so the MC now looks like a genius in that area. Funnily enough, one of the chapter titles is literally "This world isn't one that only cares about appearances!". The actual content of the chapter however proves the opposite. All in all I will keep reading it in hope that the author will turn down the worship the MC receives.

The MC also doesnt have a libido despite being a virgin for 30 years before making the whole harem thing kinda pointless.

The title is a bit misleading. It's not so much a dating sim or harem novel than it is a shounen.

The MC acts more like a psychologist than he does a neet/otaku. Although he was 30 in his past life, he acts more like he was in his 60s or 70s with his level of maturity and perception of emotions and others' state of mind.

The plot revolves around him being a hero/protagonist who saves people (emotionally and mentally) in despair, and the system gives him rewards and points... more>> from people he saves and the strong emotions he brings others.

This is f**king awesome... But, yeah. MC is bit more handsome. The way author describes how girls fall for him just as he smiles, it's quite difficult to imagine how much handsome can he be? What sucks for me is his f**king morality. Come on use your intelligence to decide where to use your power and up to what extent. Not just setting some f**king rules on yourself and blindly follow it irrespective to the situation. Oh. Come on man. grow up. That's f**king too childish. And his age... more>> seems to be around 30.

MC is gentleman. So, don't expect for any bad ass moments, you'll be disappointed. There is one situation where he pretends to be badass, unless that he is f**king gentleman.

Translation quality and speed is good. I wholeheartedly appreciate that. Soo... , just read it I bet you'll definitely like it. <<less

First time writing a review, I've read many novels on this site, many I enjoyed and many also made me want to rip my eyes out. So, story starts off with MC deciding to find a job to not burden his parents with his hobby and is rewarded with the all mighty Truck-Sama. Waking up in a new world and new body that died and was worthy of being called trash, has been given a dating sim like system too. He accepts the actions of the previous owner and tries... more>> his best to change himself (or how others view him), while taking advantage of the new system to help improve his life. He constantly gets involved in weird and funny situations with a serious tone sometimes. He still likes his former hobbies and has an appropriate mind set for someone who used to be a government worker. Overall it's a good story but obviously not for everyone, as is anything.

Currently just released till chapter 4 but don't think it your normal dense or freaking pervert master MC the MC is a thoughfull person he does not spout crap and piss of other people just like that without a reason like other MC and thinks before he acts and also working extermely hard (currently, don't know if later the author just make him a retard perv or not)


it's just beautiful till now the MC works hard in his new body trying to get rid of its past... more>> mistakes and getting thinner and also improving it motivating how hard he work's but he also has the game system which is pretty cheat which allowed him to improve more faster but he still is hardworking and does not lazy out and get a out of the body neet life. But has not showed any ' otaku ' like behavier and he behaves more like a ikmen more then a otaku

Edit : Currently reached Ch 27

The updates went abit slow for a few week but after that the update's came back in a constant rate right now his " system " is to OP at the current chapter after a few month's of basic training he was able to play against a pro tennis player with just pure stamina and reflex alone and I mean " basic " blandly he just goes for a jog and some push up and normal body training no heavy lifting nothing like that and is able to play head on head with a pro tennis player with him holding back

Also the more affection girls have to him the " system " unlocks more feature currently he unlocked a point shop. Like the name implise he can do basic task and get point to unlock more feature. He get some pretty broken feature (till now) he buy on for combat which opened more task for him and also gave him knowledge and experiance of martial art it not told but he has the skill's equal to a profession martial artist (as he beated a type of Mob boss who was a pro boxer)

There came part which I love a part where it shows the MC when he try's drawing to get points he wished to improve in it so he could get better at drawing and make a manga or a animation Showing a otaku side which we din't saw till now (lol really up to that point he really din't behave like a otaku what so ever) im sure the athor reliazed that he need to put some otaku like behavier to him so he did and I enjoyed it and found it nice :D

I'll update this after more chapter are released.

The description is a lie. He was not a NEET in his past life. He only transmigrated into NEET but he got a job almost immediately. In his past life he had a proper job as a government worker. Proper description would be 30 year old government worker and otaku. NEET isn't relevant to the story, otaku is.

There is only one reason why you should read this novel: the MC possessed the most OP cheat you will ever find in a web/light novel.

... more>>

The save game system, assuming that it has infinite slots and he saves regularly, allows him to return to the past with only loss of character stats as penalty (this is assumed, else if this penalty did not exist, then this cheat become even more formidable). Plus it seems that MC can save without any save points, and can reload at will.

I hope that, in the event of the MC sudden death, he cannot reload his way out. Else, this cheat practically will make him invincible and immortal at the same time.


Plus, this is a Chinese novel, therefore the possibility of a beta MC will be low.

I don't think the author actually intended it to happen, but the parallel world setting this novel has is actually excellent; much better than Absolute Choice, and is up there with Infinite Stratos and Chrome Shell Regios. I hope this author will actually utilize them to the fullest with a storyline that befits it.

Despite there only being a few chapters out, but this is an amazing story so far. The translation quality is good and the story is great. Our MC is calm, hard working and doesn't mind making a change for the better. He's quite likeable and it's a cultivation novel! But not your typical one. Despite him getting stronger, he stays the same and isn't arrogant and cocky, he's quite humble and caring towards friends. 8/8 story m8.

This novel is a very mild wish-fulfilment genre with lots of slice-of-life. The MC is extremely handsome. So handsome in fact it has to be mentioned almost every freaking chapter.

MC is an adult in his past life, and he acts like it in the present too. Despite the name of the novel, there has been absolutely zero "dating" or any romance from our MC's part so far. He treats his main romantic interest so far as a little sister because of his mental age.

MC has the ability to save and load his life, on top of some other abilities, so that basically tells you right away the MC will be a Mary Sue. The plot (up to 31) basically revolves the MC doing daily things such as going to school, exercising, working out, etc, while surrounded by a crowd of rabid females who are salivating and wishing they could rip off his clothes.

This novel is very similar to Hedonist Sovereign, but is a lot more mild and easygoing, and feels extremely anime-ish. (Personally I think HS is better) It reminds me of one of those JP harems where MC is surrounded by girls but nothing ever happens between them. Hopefully this novel doesn't take that route.

Alright, it's an early review but at this chapter the story start to picking up again.

One of MC that ACTUALLY ACT befitting his age. At early chapter might be "casual", similar like slice of life and romcom story, but eventually the story developed into actually plot-line story. The 'gaming element' is simple, there is not much info dumb dump so I might say, the chapter are 'composed' well enough.

If you haven't read it, give a try! There no ground breaking story but it's decent ones.

A lot of stuff in this novel is just so... plain Not saying that its a bad thing but really it quickly started declining as soon as he got to school and lost a lot of my interest in this before this School arc happened it was intriguing to an extent and entertaining. It doesn't help that the Author completely made it easy for him to attain a Greek God body in a matter of few chapters. Part of what made me interested in his relationship with the people... more>> in this world is that they superficially base their opinions on looks and I think it would have been more way more interesting to build genuine relationship not because he's God level handsome.

In conjunction with what I said, It certainly is a treat that Dialogue for the Main character is just so generic. There's nothing distinct about his personality at all. I hate that his 'Dating sim' system isn't explored upon. Its just there. Like you could remove the two words 'Dating sim' and It would have been mostly appropriate. <<less

It's a good story so far, for now avoiding the largest pitfalls of both the Chinese wuxia/xianxia web novels and the Japanese Reincarnation/game LNs. The phrasings are at times a bit awkward, but overall the writing and translation are good. The main character is the best part of the story so far, having many of the best characteristics of good xianxia mains, as well as those of the Japanese LN ones, without having their most annoying traits. Overall a very solid, though not outstanding novel. Though only time will tell... more>> if it will manage to maintain its quality, which few novels like it manage to do for long.

I've started reading the RAWS up to chapter 64 and I believe that the game elements in this takes some time to get use to as the system advances but once you understand the novel becomes a true pleasure. The MC approaches problems with clear mind, his way of speech is probably what brings a slight bit of comedy to the novel.

Although all this is great BUT there is a huge flaw to the MC personality that is not seen at the beginning, slowly you realise that the whole... more>> transmigration barley has any use to the story. Sure at the start it's what made the new personality but after while the new owner becomes completely engrossed into the old owner past and in the end he just becomes the original owner physically and mentally.

The only thing the new Owner of the body brings to the story is his job as businessman

The novel is pretty good despite the dating sim system. The story is typical chinese setting where the MC is transported to an alternate earth. But the writing style is japanese like how they use "-chan", "-kun" and so on. Chapters until 11 deserves the rating but it might change in the later chapters.
