It's somewhat nice that the MC is all so very smart and decisive but like some others have said, he's just too smart and decisive, unrealistically so. I could believe it if he was broken from the start but he was just a really well trained kid that practiced some ancient martial art, with no other real experience other than pseudo deadly combat practice.

But even with that, it would still be a good read if he was at least an interesting character but there's really not much else to... more>> him other than being a superhuman killing machine that helps anyone he could, and it certainly doesn't help that there's also the clichéd 'there's a darkness deep inside that's just waiting to come out'. And then there's the slaves, they're just so incredibly shallow with a short sob story and pretty much nothing else.

Overall it's not that bad, it's just very flawed. What's ironic is that there are a few lines that pretty much say that "this MC is so assertive unlike all those other wimpy LN MCs" and while he is, at least a lot of those wimpy LN MCs are better written than the MC here.

As of c7.

Early days yet, but I want to give a heads up to those who want to read this story. This isn't the typical wishy-washy herbivore Japanese MC, or the bullied-turned-bitter MC. The hero is a straight up ruthless and decisive, reminding me of Hagure Yuusha (Aesthetica of a Rogue Hero), though there hasn't been anything to suggest lewd content yet (all seven translated chapters are still about his arrival).

Personally, the hero doesn't seem plausible: a school student who is taller and stronger than other kids who... more>> didn't blink an eye to launch the first strike, resulting in death and torture. It would be more believable if the hero was an older soldier or mercenary in his twenties. Instead, we're suppose to believe that this confident schooling kid learned deadly martial arts from his grandfather and somehow able to put all his training into practice despite growing up in modern day Japan. We're also supposed to believe that the MC was able to calm himself in this new environment and do Sherlock-like deductions and observation in such a sudden event.

As far as the setting goes, it seems like the usual "summoned to a different world" where knights and magic exist.

Translation is good, though some readers might be turned off by the translator's notes/opinions being inserted in the middle of the text itself.

I really wanted to like this novel but there's too many things about this chuunibyou novel and its Mary Sue protagonist that makes it sub-par.

    • Too many forced plot developments. What are the chances of meeting slaves that know magic in the middle of a forest? What are the chances of a slave magic system having a major flaw that allows anyone to acquire ownership with a simple ritual?
    • Everyone is emotionally retarded. Everyone within the novel is easily provoked by a few simple words.
    • MC is the avatar of god. There's no one more intelligent than the MC in the entire series. He can outwit all of his opponents even while playing chess, shogI and go at the same time. After arriving within a kingdom, he immediately understood the political climate within a few minutes and managed to convince the princess to trust him. Then he negotiated in politics with experienced nobles and gained the upperhand.

This novel got so much potential. Not typical lame, weak-minded Jap MC. This one can kill right from the beginning. The story doesn't focus on just brawl & fight, have a decent amount of drama & it have great depiction world-building.

The author try to deliver different kind of situation that many other 'summoned to another world' novel failed to see. You can understand it, if you read the summary, but I can't say it is totally different from other novel's so far. But I think this is worth... more>> the look.

Shows promise! I originally found out about this from the manga (which of course has a few changes), and I like what I have seen so far. The protagonist is (as you can guess from the tag) strong, but not overpowered. Basically the typical Japanese high school student, except he isn't, because he is very familiar with killing techniques as that is what he has been trained with since he was young. I prefer this series over summoned slaughterer because the character kills out of necessity, not to be specifically... more>> vindictive like summoned slaughterer.

I do have somewhat of a problem with the translation speed though, it is kind of all over the place with an almost mas release roughly every 2 months, which also somewhat leaves me wondering if the series was dropped or still going, all the while having no news of what progress may or may not have been done translating.

Whatever the case may be though, I look forward to more chapters, and as of now the story is just slightly ahead of chapter 1 of the manga, for those who may be curious.

I tried to like this, I really did. Unfortunately I guess I don't get the appeal of this because of cultural differences maybe?

I agree 100% with everything ongoingwhy said in his review, and I would also like to say that this WN suffers from the typical JP MC fuccboI syndrome. It does not matter if this guy is 4 meters tall and breathes out fire, he is still constrained by what seems to be a rampant Mary Sue all-around-good-guy JP trope. Seriously, this guy is shaq size and breaks necks... more>> for fun but he simply does not know how to say no (especially to women). His interactions with people are painful to read, and it is not because he is unaccustomed to his new surroundings.

Spoiler

What broke the camel's back for me was the beginning of volume 2. He ends up finding out that he has no way to go back and he breaks down. Pretty normal, is it not? Weeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeell, that's okay, because he's fine again soon enough and back to mindlessly doing quests.


The very next chapter he is forced to accept a quest that screams out DANGER! DANGER! DANGER!, because he has apparently checked his balls in at the counter. Of course, this quest is just a way to forcefully move the plot towards the direction that ongoingwhy mentioned, and he is like a fish in water in his new environment that I'm sure will cause him to inexplicably become involved in some world changing b. S.

[collapse]

This review (rant) might make me seem angry, but I'm really just disappointed. Disappointed in the direction, and consistently same character archetype that is prevalent in each new JP novel. The authors try and disguise it with different types of smoke screens and fire works but we can all tell.

Just to be fair, I'm not solely ragging on JP WN as I also believe CN WN are equally disappointing but in a whole other direction.

TLDR; Nothing new here folks, don't be deceived by all the shiny mirrors and the flashy lights. The story is just as unimaginative as the description makes it sound, and I'm sure you've already read something that resembles it.

For me, this story started off pretty good. Then it took a turn for the annoying. It got far too political for me.

Spoiler

Especially when he joined the neighboring kingdom's royal crew. My real question is, no matter how smart he is, why did they accept him? He's a man with a questionable background.

Yo, Heavrus here!!

Let's get onto it.

It has been a while since I had read Japanese novels. And boy, I was very much pessimistic about this one, I mean really. So, I left it in the dirt. Then I found a manga of the same name on Zingbox. Then I thought, it won't hurt if I read, right?. Dude, best decision of the month. It made me rethink about JP novels again.

Plot: Startup is really good. Only because of the MC. Otherwise its the generic plot, though it feels... more>> kind of polished and sometimes "forced". [I have decided to ignore this due to things I mentioned below]. But our MC, man, who would have thought he will be ruthless like CN novels? He has both Brains and muscles. Trained from the birth with Martial Arts to fight for death. He does not shys away from killing someone if he "must". But it not only ends here, he has intellectual brains too, that it makes you wonder how the f___ can an average student know so much about Politics, weapon knowledge, infiltration etc? Played Ascreed too much? Not a valid reason. Moving on.

Characterisation & World : Its a harem. So you know what to expect. But this novel has put some restrictions in this department. Good for me and the novel. It seems like the harem will not exceed more then 4/5. Since it was mentioned in one summary of the manga and you can see from the MCs attitude that he has not much interest in girls. I am a sucker for harems, but even I know by now. That more harems = less character development. This can be nullified if the author is experienced. But not everyone's d*ck and Brain are that hard. But, this guy (author) seems experienced even though the harem is already small. I can perfectly understand the circumstances which led to the girls being slaves then servants or now the followers of MC. Therefore I can sympathise with them. Not every novel makes me do that. Other then the girls there are villains. As usual, it makes me want to punch them. But wait, being a king is no easy. Everyone is selfish here, from Sardina to Satou to that king. They have their ambitions. I understand that too. But it colludes with our MCs interest. That's where it went wrong.
Spoiler

Eg- As for the other guy that got transported before him "Satou" values Loyality, our MC values freedom, see? Its contradicts.

[collapse]
. Aside from that. Side characters are still side character's. No problem with that. I don't want to hear the life story of the bar tender anyway. The world is medieval. But at times, it screams "modern". Because of the heroes that came before him. To say it simply the cultural flow is uneven at places. Turmoil is everywhere. Disloyalty, bloody politics, unrest are leaking. And it is for our MC to take advantage and find his own purpose here on.

Potential and Verdict : For me. This novel has enough potential as China has over the world economy today. Should the author manages to do it good, it can spark fire. Definetly will keep reading.

[Haevrus Hotline: If you have played Crusader Kings II. Then you might love and understand it even more. Keep in mind, that this is upto the current chapters I have read. Since weather and Web novels may change faces anyday. ]

I got the feeling that this might be a sequel to Summoned Slaughter... the scenario is similar and they mentioned about an otherworlder "bringing" unique weapons. Those weapons that they described match the one the MC requested to be created in Summoned Slaughter.

First of all, you got to know that it is not some wish fulfillment novel where it gets stronger exponentially. NO. Our MC are trained to be able to kill while on Earth.

The premise of being able to get stronger by killing (level) is there, but not being a main point of interest. Each act and the consequences of Ryouma is well thought.

The author way of hinting and bringing story is good, it flows well and have a good twist.

... more>>
Spoiler

like when Ryouma is so desperate can't go back to the previous world, the author hint it that Ryouma have another whole of dark side 'personality' reside inside him, yet doesn't spoil the story and make a good moment with the twins.

[collapse]

Also the MC is not just brute-force type, nor just the know-it-all guy which make every story just unbearable.

If I have to describe it, it's like a 'summoned slaughterer' and 'genjitshu oukokuzaki' combined and a poured into the plot of 'sevens' here and there.

At first, I thought the storytelling was pretty messy since I think that the author tried to avoid obvious spoilers by going from one perspective to the next without much context. But the more you read, the more it all makes sense. It feels like it's going to be a good novel, but I'll reserve judgement when there's more chapters and the plot is better revealed to the reader.

Also, there's a manga adaptation of this novel. It kinda helps if you have a hard time visualizing some parts of... more>> the story.

Side Note: It does feel like Summoned Slaughterer, but this is a different author so there's only a small (but not zero) chance that both stories are linked. I'd like that idea, though.

MC is a martial artist and his 2 followers are talented (OPish) "battle slave" sisters. Some people might not like the plot twisting from escape, to adventuring to kingdom building, but from the very beginning he was destined to clash with the Empire that summoned him as he seeks for a way to return home.

Novel is good, but all the politics baffle me a bit. Politics and reading people is one thing you need a lot of practice and ability to gain information from wide variety of things. And MC was all about not being bound to anything in start and although he is smart, he is still really young. And it didn't seem like he was someone who was used to leading scheming etc etc. Or did something that entails things like that in his former world.

So my conclusion is while its... more>> ok read, the story doesn't really match with how MC was portrayed. At one point he was roaming the world, and pretty much without any explanation he just goes straight to politics. And as there isn't really much/any character development or even even rise in strength it get bit boring. There is initial explanation about how people get stronger killing stuff, but there is literally no mention about MC getting power from killing stuff after that.

Falls down to a typical Japanese slice of life = boring writing style. Pretty much no emotions like excitement or whatever can be felt reading this. Its more like list of things he does.
