I appreciate how he isn't overpowered with his cheat, and it is what he eventually decides his cheat is: a tool. He has another advantage which is his knowledge from the future but it helps balance his lack of talent and progressing cooking skill. Also, he gradually realizes that because of his presence, the predetermined future he knows of is changing, and with that his attitude and cooking style also adapts to the current present.
I could forgive how his mental age regressed although he never forgets to mention he's an adult inside, and his actions always contradicting his insistent whining. I could forgive that the humor of his narration had gotten stale after 40+ chapters. What I couldn't forgive was that nothing happened, and the author's attempt at making something up was, pardon me, pathetic.
School arc, always exciting. New faces, new fodder for plot. Yet the new characters and events didn't really offer anything new other than to increase the repertoire of the MC's strength. Friend? More like a classmate trying to act like an able older brother despite being dependent on the younger MC to tutor him. Heroine? More like a kid who got attached to you and that you're now babysitting. The deciding event was when they were attacked by a legendary creature and the MC uses a broom to kill it. Oops, didn't mean to reveal my super OPness in front of the entire school. Off to the castle he goes to explain, not acting like the 8 year old he's supposed to be in front of the freaking king. He tells his courageous story then wonders why the king looks at him in shock.
I cringed when the assassin became his animal-eared maid. I disapproved when he let the children mentally younger than him (he wouldn't want you to forget) walk over his pushover face. The backstory of his dad having his past face and his trauma wasn't really further addressed or used in anything of significance to develop the plot other than to gain the admiration of his shotacon tutor.
She stole not only her family, childhood sweetheart, future as an actress, and now her baby.
1) She accepts her current situation -- that this world is now her life and and it's real, not a game. She acknowledgement is pretty early and it's refreshing as most heroines of such reincarnation novels become blind with their previous knowledge and think of their new circumstances still as the game.
2) She's mature. Obviously, because she isn't the 8 year old she appears to be, but she doesn't -try- to act like a child.
3) She's pretty realistic. For example, she remarks how amazing the game MC is, because if she were the MC, she would be running away from the target ikemen because of his weirdo personality.
4) Although she's now "Altirea", it doesn't mean that her past "self" is gone. I like how you can see that she had a family that she still remembers, even using her previous experience with having a younger brother to deal with the first possible childhood love interest.
it becomes irrelevant, I think, in the later chapters when the last dude to be captured appears. I'm still unclear on what the situation is too.
you don't see the yandere part of her until chapter 13. Even then it's very slight.
I get he wants to make them stronger, but he teaches them his spells and hides nothing. I just wish they would stop immediately wanting to copy his magic and come up with their own ideas. Aren't you supposed to be the amazing S class or something? He's basically spoon feeding them at this point. The girl that was supposed to be his love interest isn't interesting either, sorry to say. She's just kinda there, one of his admiring followe--I mean, friends.
MC was so unwilling to be with the guy in the beginning and I actually respected her for it, yet after a few kisses, she kept on compromising with the selfish jerk, who was basically attracted to her because (1) she saved him before, which is a the perfect example of the suspension bridge effect, (2) she was only "unusual" to him because of her initial rejection of him (how can anyone reject such an amazing specimen of a man!) and he was mystified of her fairy tale belief of a one true love, and finally (3) he had this alpha-male single mindedness that refused to let him be considerate of anyone but himself and his self interest of conquering any woman he sets his eyes on, like the animal he is.
Then his concubine, who he knew was jealous, claimed the MC was to blame, he immediately believed her without investigating the issue or respecting (hah respect, as if he had any of that towards himself or other people) the promise between him and the MC. I've read Peach Girl before, and one thing I absolutely hate is when a person who is supposed to trust the one he or she loves instead believes another person's words.
First, the story has 3 volumes but the relationship between the MC and his love interest is a little...I don't know how to say it. And they don't either. But isn't that why we're all reading this? Doesn't help that the chapters are not the longest ones around here. So hopefully this won't become a rush job.
--Update-- So chapter 47 is actually the end of volume 1 and we have around 200 chapters to go. This is comforting. I think we might have enough time for a decently paced development in their relationship, but we'll see.
Second, the relationship between the boy the MC is being a body double for, and the employer is also a little vague. (minor spoiler) Apparently the boy and the employer are lovers, but I feel like the employer's feelings are not as deep as the author claims they are. (end) That's my little complaint, but we haven't even met the boy yet, so there's something to look forward to.
