It's been really enjoyable so far. We get into the meat of the story from the first chapter, so you don't have to force yourself through a long introduction. The world-building is more "show and suggest" than "tell and force down readers' throats." And it flows so smoothly; rather than splitting the plot entirely into separate story arcs or missions, it offers a more authentic moment-to-moment view of the MC's activities. And unlike in many other novels, the difficulty, complexity, and rewards of trades and missions don't seem to artificially escalate as the MC gets stronger. Instead, the world proceeds as it does, and the MC decides what he can and can't get involved with, and chooses how to go about doing things (with his assistant's help and advice, though she'd prefer for him to be more self-sufficient).

The MC's assistant-cum-teacher is interesting and discreetly funny. The MC himself has a good mentality: he understands that he's become (sort of) immortal and (sort of) tied to the Club, yet he's not angsting about it nor forcing himself to change. Instead, he'll let his personality change naturally over time, and he'll enjoy what he has while he can, and won't let this new world scare him. Actually, he has fun taking advantage of people's perceptions to appear especially mysterious, to seem more badass than he has yet become because why not?

He's curious and calm, very well suited for his position. At the same time, his likable personality may be a weakness of the novel. He's so calm, so well-suited for his position, that he doesn't really have to grow into his function. Sure, I'm glad he's not whining about it or messing things up, but I'd like to see some character growth, or even better, for his personality to continuously change over the decades. As it is, he's pretty much static. His zombie-doll assistant seems to have more room for transformation than him, actually. Not sure how much of her personality is a front, though...

Very interesting and mysterious story. Mc has to constantly make deals with people in order to be able to run the trading house and live. He meets very weird being and regular people then makes trades with them. He also is currently living a normal life apart from when he gets a new customer. Overall this story is very promising in terms of what can pop out of any corner. Cant wait for a new chapter.

Good novel so far a loner seeks isolation and finds his solitude in a place that offers him (potential) immortality while peeking his interest / hobby of observing the world around him. This is far removed from the usual novels we get on this site and has already made its way on to my favorites list. I'm interested to find out if there is any possible romancing in the future but as far as the first 10 chapters a lot has already happened. I can say that it doesn't start... more>> slow it jumps right into the story and what its about.

The first case will be a little moving and has raised my expectations for the upcoming cases as well.

The novel hasn't shown school life but has already setup a possible outcome for the next 10 yrs; all of this in just 10 chapters. Pacing wise I think its a little fast but that's probably because there isn't a need for world building yet. The story is literally happening in the modern era so not much is different.

Spoiler

The world building is more likely to involve the monster and oddities side of the business along with the growth of his powers that allow him to do a multitude of things.

[collapse]

So far the story is a 10

5 - Presented story quality
5 - Story potential <<less

The story is very interesting and refreshing after reading too many chinese novels that reuse simmilar tropes. The atmosphere of the novel somehow reminds me of the anime "death parade" though it has a different story. For now as I have just read 10 chapters, I gave it 5 stars.

This is a 5 star for me. Only reason I gave it 4 however is due to grammar and spelling mistakes. (Edit: The flow seems a bit awkward as well. A bit disjoinyed.) Editor really needs to step up his game.
So far its exactly as the synopsis states. Ordinary guy goes into mysterious shop. Takes over shop. He lives more and can also gain abilities depending on the transactions he makes. I would say there is absolutely nothing like this so far so definitely at least give it a... more>> try. <<less
