Really good story. It is not what it seems like at first. This is not a pure rape/sex story but a psychological story of many broken people. I strongly recommend it. This is the best story I have ever read.

Btw, I edited the tag and added comedy tag :)

As the Translator of this story, I went and read ahead to look if this is just a sex novel or if this has a plot, I mean, this has 1381 chapters with 8k average japanese characters per chapter, I mean, if this is bad then it's just a waste of time, right?

The pace of the story is really slow, One week of events took 126 chapters.

First of all, let's talk about the Main character: His past actually describes his actions, I won't go into the details because that... more>> would be spoiling but Yukino's the only girl he have sex with dark emotions.

Next, Yukino, she's actually the second character you'd hate the most, first would be someone related to her. Taking a look at how she actually deal with the blackmail scene: she was seriously trying to bribe her boyfriend out even though it's clear that her boyfriend was in the wrong, of course this is a normal course of action for blackmail scenes but her character will be explained in the later chapters. Also, she's not the main Heroine, She's not even the MC's first love.


Lastly, Sensei: the mansion, if you notice is actually a prostitution house, cameras, magic mirror, handrails, and a lot more cameras. She was raped when she was young, sold to prostitution, and rose from the ashes, won't be talking about the details but Sensei's life is one of the tragic stories in the novel

So if you're going to talk about the MC being just perverted, You're wrong, you've never seen his character at all, you've never known his past, you've never seen him get molded with every events, turn from a very passive ignorant child to a responsible and gentle man.

If you think the girl's so naive, yes, she's delusional, prideful, and selfish. You will be asking the same question other characters in the story ask, Why does he even like her? And that question is very well explained too, it's not some bullshit love at first sight, no no.


The author properly thought of each character, each minute of the story, each words that come out of their mouth, each change that happen to every character.

In the end, if you don't like short paced stories, please stop reading.
If you don't like to read about the dark side of the world, please stop reading.
If you don't like character development, please stop reading this.
If you don't like R-18, don't even instant-1-star this. Create a (Hide Me) List and put this novel there. <<less

Stay for the story not the sex

Don't be fooled by the early reviews this story has a massive and I mean massive cult following more than a thousand chapters and enough material to make dozens of books.

In terms of popularity think of it as the all-time number one 18 + novel on syosetu (with a good reason)

... more>> Equivalent to its mushoku tensei in terms of rank and following( might be even higher)

I'm currently at chapter 800 and I can tell you this is good. It's well written with lots of actual plot instead of just pure sex period lot's of dark societies, underground Mafia. training and blackmail, correction, and all the good that is in the darkness of society.

There is lots of character development and lots of psychological depictions that's not just pure nonsense

Instead of thinking of that's just pure sex think of it more as a massive story that has sex.

And when I say that I mean it's a massive story. <<less

First of all, the raw is resuming again after a year of hiatus and will soon reach 1400 chapters

Next, I don't know which novel the person below me (krem) reviewed, but it's clearly not this novel because he said MC being bullied and used that as justification to err, assault that girl. When in fact MC is not being bullied and he's not trying to justify his actions at all. His review might apply to any other mindless ero novel, but not this one. But it's true that MC's... more>> growth is hard to notice at first, because time progression is slow (it's fast paced, the plot progression is fast, but due to many events in each day, passage of time itself is slow)

Like Pun, Cabman, and others have said the scale of this novel is huge. It was foreshadowed many times at the beginning, but it'll eventually explore the workings of Noble Families, Political World, and Yakuza of Japan.It's not a simple ero novel, it's actually a psychological novel.

About genre not being in the story yet, well, it's spread in those thousand chapters so it will be a while till you can see them in the translation (I added some of them, sorry :p)

The best part of this novel is characterization. Every characters actually have distinct personality, and each of them will have their respective growth. The "bad guys" also, not bad for the sake of being bad, but have their own reasons, even if those reasons are unreasonable and finally my favorite part:


The Nariagari of Yoshida. Only those who already read far ahead will know, but eventually the MC will rise in various aspects and become a real badass. Physical Abilities, Wealth, Knowledge and Wisdom, Political Power, etc. It's so much better than isekai nariagari that it's funny~

Also Kudou Michi best girl :P

I started reading this novel without truly understanding the scale of this novel. It is HUGE. And very little has been translated into English. I am considering reading a little further using google translate on Syosetsu. I agree with everything Punllarena and Cabman11 said. Especially the three chapters between 30 and 33 really brought about a change to the storyline. What initially started out as a novel of one horny teenage boy getting to rape his classmate takes on greater scope by introducing a lot of new elements into the... more>> mix. I give it 4 stars because I want to know the ending before judging. As of right now, I could continue reading this work.

I wrote this review primarily to address the user Overclock and his review. First of all, I can understand this novel not being your cup of tea. However, if that were the case, you should have seen the tags 'blackmail' and 'rape' and moved on. I think those are pretty clear about what to expect. Moreover, you judged and denounced an ongoing novel of over 1300 chapters having read simply the first one? You've read less than 0.1% of the work. I suppose I'm little better at 33, but I beg you not to dissuade potential readers. I read what you wrote in the spoilers and I nearly passed on this one. There is tons of sexual content, but there is also a story underneath it, and the character development is actually pretty solid.

To all potential readers, please give it a try. If you don't like blackmail and rape and want a novel that wraps up in a 100 chapters or so, you should look elsewhere. Otherwise, you should give this a try. <<less

As a person who reads this translated novel and went ahead to animesuki forums for spoilers, I can tell you guys that this author carefully plotted out the story, the characters, the environment, the foreshadows and the mc himself. Yoshida is 'broken' and by broken, I mea- just read the novel. Once you go past the FIRST yukino rape arc, many characters will introduce themselves and slowly, and they will be a part of yoshida's harem (in a good and kind way, not the mean and rape-face way).

The story ITSELF... more>> will explain slowly as you read along and the ANSWERS in which you asking yourselves "Yoshida is a fucking rapist, he doesn't care about the women's well being blah blah" will be answered during your time reading this 'big ass pile of gold' novel. There is no NTR (netorare) in this novel, absolutely none. Each arc AFTER Shirasaka Yukino consists of one character, and it will heavily focus on that character. Cuz 'Yoshida is our Lord and Savior' -Wuhugm

I advise you to go past chapter 20 if you aren't sure if this is the novel for you. Don't judge by just a few chapters, judge it after reading past those few chapters and continue venturing through till you have reached your final answer in giving this a good and reasonable rating. It's obvious that by reading 3-5 chapters in the beginning, you would heavily criticize the author for creating this novel, but you haven't reach the very very very tip of the ICEBERG. You are just at the bottom of the soil.. (damn that's cold)

But I can tell you this, up until 250 or somewhere around there:

Shirasaka Sousuke, the Sadistic man who raped Sensei and her 12 yr old sister will get what he deserves and be sent to the deepest level of hell!!!


If you can't handle rape and psychological shit that's throughout this novel, I SINCERELY RECOMMEND YOU PEOPLE TO NOT READ THIS AS THIS IS NOT FOR THE WEAK OF THE HEART. Only true men can handle this hell!

Good Luck guys. <<less

Like everyone else who gave it 5/5. I, too came for the 18+, but now I am reading it for the plot. Don't listen to those dumb negative reviews as you can see they dropped this gem without even bothering to give it another try. I will tell you this that don't judge this novel by its cover because it really becomes good around chapter 30 with tons and tons of story and character building and mind boggling plot twists.

... more>>

Although, the wimpy MC might bother you at first, but from the spoilers I have read he becomes really badass and kinda modern OP like around chapter 200, but it is all worth the wait because I can't wait to see read that far ahead. Ah! How wish I could read Japanese too just for this novel. The only thing that bothers me little bit is that the novel is just too dark for me, so I fear for some NTR or almost rape moments for the harem members of MC because so far all the girls that are introduced are either raped or almost raped, and there's this scene where MC is having sex with his girl in front of school principal, but he didn't do anything more like he couldn't because he doesn't have his penis. I can only hope that Author will not go further than this and does something horrible to MC's harem. Otherwise, it is a perfect novel and specially a great boner booster if you are like me who prefers build-up before the sex scenes.

Made an account specifically for this review, also, kinda silly complaining about the genre tags not being in the story yet..... 1373 chapters, each of them are long, and only 48 translated so far, so of course alot of tags aren't used yet. Find a story that has used all its tags before chapter 50 and I will give you a cookie. >.>

Now onto my review and thoughts of the story and how I originally stumbled into it.

First I am a big fan of Netori while I loathe... more>> Neotare (double standard right?). Now that that is out of the way, I found the series through this website while searching for a series with Netori.

Jump to the series, it starts off kinda weird and at a slow pace. The continued rape of the first girl does get a bit old at first but then "BAM"! The story starts to change, this is not just some Netori rape story, there Yakuza!? Theres lots of other Twists, but I am not going to spoil that in the review, but will say that these twists truly open up the story and suck you right in. I came looking for Netori and now I am reading for the plot!

In my opinion, the Netori is very well done!

The first girl Yukino still hates the MC 48 chapters in after more than 30 instances of sex, all novels I read before this one, all it takes is 2-3 times of sex with MC and they are all over him, this story to me, is more realistic. The slow fall is alot more realistic.

As for other girls liking him maybe too easily, it is because they are broken, and certain aspects coincide well with the MC. Nei being an example, some could argue she is using Yo-chan as an outlet for her disorder and loss of her brother, not real love, so its not like she is just throwing herself at him blindly, there is a reason for the madness.

Misuzu also I would say is using the MC to an extent, partly to get out of her own situation in life which she doesnt like(Nagisa-san hinted at this), At one point in the story when she sees the MC's penis she almost calls it her's but corrects herself. Not to say she doesnt have real feeling for him, just there are outside circumstances that made her fall for him alot faster.

Megumi may be the only person so far in the story with an honest healthy like for the MC, but we havent gotten to her backstory yet.


What I think of the story so far: Started off slow and funky as I said earlier, but by chapter 35 I am so absorbed, this is the novel I look forward to the most for updates. The story starts slow mind you, and is slow to start introducing the other elements, but my god is it worth the wait!

I rated it as 5stars because I have never read such a fantastic and immersive Ero novel. <<less

First, I will say it maybe too soon for writing the review of this web-novel. The reason is the pace of the story is very very very VERY SLOW. However, I decided to write a review because of the story and how the writer organise his writing style. I really like how the story is written. If you haven't read the R-18 novel before and my review is too long, then you may only read my last paragraph.

About Tags: no R-18 involve with loli

You may read Punllarena's review before reading... more>> mine as what I wrote here is an additional based on my view. If my review is too long then just read the first 2 sentences of each paragraph.

Another main point you need to know is this novel only has one POV, the main character only. Everything besides the conversation is what the MC is thinking or seeing. Basically, you have to understand the main character to progress the storyline. So, if you like multi POV novel, then do not read this novel.

Although this story has a dark-side, it is still within the understandable action. The main goal is to accomplish the "revenge" that every action has a reason. If you disagree to have a revenge under any circumstances, the do not read this novel. If you don't want to use your brain to understand the characters, then do not read this novel. Otherwise, you will think it is a "bad" novel which has immoral acts and impossible responses in the real world.

As the story goes, there will always be the sad part of the characters' backgrounds. So, if you don't like sad story then don't read this novel. It is the reason of the "revenge". But until now, there is no nasty actions (i.e hard-core torture, cannibalism), however some of it (if not most) is related to rape.

Till now, one day in the story equals to several chapters. But, there will be more than 50 chapters just to write a day of the story. Compare to tens of web-novels I have read, the length of one chapter of this novel is above the average. So, you can imagine that you have read hundreds of chapters from a novel and the time of the story has run more than a year, however the hundreds of chapters in this novel only covers less than a month time of the story. Even if it is like that, it is still a good one.

Because of the slow-paced story, I won't recommend you to decide whether you want to read or not based on the rating. My suggestion is to read until chapter 8 (there is no R-18 story till this chapter) then decide whether to continue or not. I will say this novel is good not because there is sex scenes as fan-services, but because of the story, there must be sex scenes in order to have a better understanding of the story. It is different from most of R-18 novels where you can just skip the sex scenes (to make it a normal novel or R-15 novel) and still understand the whole story. <<less

I don't enjoy reading novels like this much but this is one of the very few rare ones that also consist a well-developed plot. Though the story may seem slow (1 day = 4 - 7+ chapters), the character development's done really well.

Unlike other ero-novels that contains only, well ero, this is one you might enjoy if you want "plot with ero" instead of just "ero with slight plot".

Hooked on the novel. The MC's somewhat yandere like behaviour even though it seems he doesn't "truly love" the girl he's pursuing piques my interest. The xxx scenes are pretty well done too, doesn't give a feeling of being repetitive

I wasn't really complaining about the genres not being in the story, I was complaining about them not being done well, except for romance though. So I don't really want a cookie, but most story's will in fact hit most it's genre marks in the first few chapters so I suggest you read some more books. I haven't been reading many light novels lately so the best I can do is point you to a manga I just recently found, that has made a special place in my heart for... more>> being freaking awesome. It's called Konya wa Tsuki ga Kirei Desu ga, Toriaezu Shi ne. Thank you for reading my review by the way.

I'm going to write this review in a weird way because it's difficult to organised my thoughts and I don't know how to start these things.

Action - I think there was one scene so far that can be considered "action" wasn't very entertaining to say the least.

Adult - Mc is a high school brat that doesn't think.

Drama - piss weak. There is no real complications due to Mc getting everything on a platter.

Ecchi - like the action not very entertaining, that is unless it's pandering to your taste. For instance, I only managed to push through the dreadful first chapters because I got an email saying the blowjobs were happening. When I got to it I was not satisfied and read a Hentai manga.

Harem - bs harem on easy mode, literally it's so boring how easy it is. Apparently the reason the Mc is good at sex is that he doesn't think of how to please the women when he's having sex and that when he's having sex he looks only at the women, while concentrating on having sex with the women. This is the authors contradicting himself trying to justify the Mc not thinking.

Martial Arts - 38 chapters in none so far, just a heads up for you martial arts, ecchi, harem trifecta lovers.

Mature - since "adult" and "mature" are the same thing I'll just say this: sure it has mature themes like sex, rape, violence and so on, but is it really mature if it's told from a childish and lame perspective.

Psychological - again Mc doesn't think beyond basic human functions and retarded knowledge. He is basically a dildo that has human senses being used on girls by his master.

Romance - pfft this should be removed. There is nothing romantic about this story.

School Life - I'd be surprised if the author managed to stuff this one up.

Tragedy - this ties into both drama and action even the story overall. Sure some things are tragedic, the presentation and style is so bland and boring that it's not nearly as impactful as a tragic, drama story should be. Everything is dialogue exposition from others even things the about the main character that the main character could think about and show us himself are divulged by others, mainly new characters as if the author was covering bad writing with "on purpose" as an excuse. Yes this is how you find out about the Mcs incredible no thinking sex ability.

Overall - it's pretty bad, but I do want to say the author has guts for writing so many chapters after starting so badly, though I am question why there are two author for a novel. Were they working together from the start? Or was it that the guy gave up and another guy took over? Who know, I don't really care. Anyway I don't think I'll continue reading this any further because I only read this far in for the sake of seeing what Pun sees in it and the destination may turn out as good but the journey is so dreadful it may not be worth it. Also if you think a slow story is a good excuse for a story being boring, your wrong. <<less

I honestly was surprised when I saw all the one-star reviews. Perhaps the story just didn't click with those people, or they just don't really understand how intricate it is?

This novel is definitely a good read. It's on a completely different level compared to other R18 novels.
... more>>

The MC is most assuredly not just a wimpy piece of garbage who one-sidedly desires and rapes his "love" interest. That's the type of MCs that other typical R18 novels have. He's just another broken toy thrown aside by garbage parents (especially the mom) and is taken in by other equally broken toys who are trying to live life as happily as they can, doing things they want to do. Each and every one of the characters introduced, even casually, are tied in to the story. The author meticulously develops the main cast and reveals bits and pieces of trauma experienced in the past. The MC is also a key component for helping the rest of the group recover some of their sanity. Perhaps he does get everything delivered to him on a silver platter, but nevertheless he is an integral part of the group.

It does require quite a bit of reading though, probably at least 30 chapters or so before the main plot starts to show.

If you want a simple R18 story read Kininaru or something. <<less

I'm really impressed with this novel, I didn't expect that much out of a light novel chosen randomly, even less a 18+ rated one, with tags like "rape", "netori" and "harem".

Usually, what you get from that are cheap novels of a quality even lower than your random reincarnation novels, with characters and story barely existing for the sake of the sex scenes.

Here, we have quite a few interesting character (though all of them have a few loose screws), and something that tries to get a somewhat coherent story. Every character... more>> has its flaws, quite a few of them could be described as "crazy", but it somehow makes them feel much more human (but not humane) than quite a lot of characters on light novels. That said though, they are very far from the "norm" you would expect from human beings, so it can really break the immersion if that puts you off.

Like usual, you have a protagonist with near limitless stamina, and quite a lot of the situation don't feel realistic at all.

The writing style is not exceptional, the translation mostly decent (mostly a few typing errors rather than full on grammatical errors).
The narration is mostly first person from the protagonist, but it spares us from the "style" that's raw thoughts with sound effects everywhere, and lots of exclamation points. It feels more like a proper narration made from the point of view of the main character instead, with a few of his thoughts and reactions inserted in there.

All in all, I had a lot of fun reading this, and the "story" parts that are usually filler between sex scenes were actually what made me continue reading after the first arcs. Do keep in mind that it's by no mean a nice relaxing story, and it's certainly not your usual scenes from the 15+ and harem stories. <<less

This novel... is complex. I personally applaud the author for daring to write something as controversial as this; but that doesn't change that its story is... negative, at least up to where it has been translated (the beginning). But that said, its very well written (if you can read beyond the apparently disgusting first 30 or so chapters, at least until the underlying reasons are revealed)... and asks a lot of questions, as good books should. But I personally don't like the story as much because I disagree with the... more>> answers it provides. Bottom line, unless you're extremely tolerant and open-minded don't read this, even to ***... but if you're looking to open your eyes a bit more, especially to the darker aspects of Japan (and enjoy the exquisitely written sex scenes), try it to see if it interests you. <<less
