The MC is loved by most girls to start of with the first few chapters are about the princess who is madly in love with the farmer MC. The background of it being that somehow the 5 year old princess managed to sneak out of the castle, then walked through the whole capital to then walk out of the capital through the always guarded gates, to then get lost in the wheat fields of MC's family. The MC then finds her and she instantly falls in love with him. Now this is frankly hard to believe since it would most likely take hours if not a day or two for a 5 year old to wander that far on top of the fact that no one stopped her. I can accept that if the farm is close by, never really explained.
The next part however is what makes it very hard to swallow by the fact that in the next few chapters their farm is attacked by bandits who put their house and field on fire. Simply the smoke of it would make people see it from miles away, however no one notices it and the MC who comes home to the attack watches and to a certain extent is the reason for both of his parents being killed, then of course plot armor appears and saves him.
This showing a build up for a tragic past as the MC cries and reveals he only wanted to be spoiled by his parents which was why he acted the way he did. Then blam tragic parents death is forgotten and it's time to get harem member 2 cause tragedy is boring.
Short summary of next part
Demon princess (DP) instantly falls in love with him even prioritizing keeping other girls of him while her own father is dying on the ground next to them within hours, female human general after being attacked by MC and DP believes him to be brainwashed. So instead of killing him she tries to rape him because???? Then half a chapter is prolonged on immenent rape until plot armor.
These situations just keeps on comming.
The most extreme case is the demon princess Day 1 falls madly in love with him. Day 2 is abused, bullied and publicly humiliated until the MC realizes he's trash when the two princesses starts crying and the citizens calls him human waste he gives an apology and then an hour later he keeps saying their annoying since he already said he was sorry, even though just like the girls mentioned he never really seemed sorry in the first place. The two girls then instantly becomes shy and wants to bathe together with the MC cause????
So yeah girls just keeps falling in love almost instantly with the MC and all of then are appearently masochists who loves being abused and neglect play.
On top of this he can't accept any of them, even though after his parents deaths he promised himself not to keep things bottled up. Since he found out that some of the other JP's on the bus also reincarnated though they were all reincarnated 20ish years before him.
So as the title of this story he can't accept any girls because he wants to search for his highschool crush he never got the chance to confess to which is the plot setting. He can't accept the other girls because he wants to try and find her even though he has no idea if she has reincarnated yet or will in the future. Though because of title it will happen though it would be funny if she get's reborn when he's 50+ or she was already reborn 40 years before him.
The MC is the only male capable of mating with the females (except for the lizardmen, who can only mate with lizardmen) who lives in the village there for he is fairly early in charge of mating with at first 1 then 2 then 9 then 100+ and probably even more to come.
The MC is being sucked dry and as a bit of comical relief at one point they get asked to accept some villagers. But they will only get females since the men are needed for the mines. But the MC demands that some men are given along with the females.
End result is that 22 females are added and 3 little boys. This makes the MC collapse but, trying to stay postive he happily proclaims that in just a few more years the boys will become the wall he needs (he pretty much say's he will throw them to the wolves (the females) when breeding is required) to protect himself.
Food for thought is that because of the gods blessing he can most likely endlessly do the night time activity. It's simply that too much of the good stuff makes one not want the good stuff anymore :D
At the start the MC is shown to be a semi-beta type character, having killed three unconcious people to lvl up and so to survive a fight, all three are kind of bad guys, one being a criminal and two being adventurors starting to do bad deeds. The MC shows no remorse in killing them even though they haven't really done much at all, they are then killed so he can win against their boss who he is about to kill but decides not to after being convinced he's worth more money if they turn him in alive. Showing that the MC has a cold side to him, but this is the only time.
After this he becomes a real pushover with the big turning point being around ch 50 at which point two girls tries to scam him, fails tries to scam him again, and after which he is forced to help them (for free) which the now beta MC accepts even though he doesn't want to because????
In comes my least favorite character, who he is then later on forced to accept as his companion even though he states he doesn't like her. Later on she becomes accepted, because MC at one time finds her body attractive and after that she is accepted into "harem" so now MC is beta who thinks with lower part, reverse growth as person check.
Get's forced to help catgirl to get ingredients for wine for no reward check, learns he has to risk his and his companions lives to fight a dragon during said quest check, actually puts his foot down and refuses great! Next chapter changes his mind cause least likeable character is friends with cats, and MC decides he wants to do whatever he wanna do "growth moment" = MC starts doing whatever other people tells him to do and loses all will check.
Oh and all the chapters here were pointless since he never had to fight in the first place since the ending is that he just grows the needed material in his secret base.
After this is the moment when MC goes full beta, and you never go full beta.
MC is attacked by pirates who wants everything he owns, MC defeats them and is then given the guilt trip cause the pirates were rookie pirates that just decided to become pirates cause it's such a cushy life being a pirate. So now MC is forced to help the fishermen turned pirates to get a semi-cushy life instead of finding his missing companions. Since you know helping criminals is what a good guy would do. MC also justifies this when asked why he would help them that now that he's strong he feels that he must now help the public.
Yeah cause rewarding people for doing crimnal acts is helping the public! Shush you who don't agree:D.
the punishments of the system being no s*x for X months/years, or pretty girls no longer liking him etc. Which makes the MC go crazy cause that can't happen! But since the novel has no s*xual content for the most part anyway it doesn't even matter.
Basically the MC works on a girl for some tens of chapters but once the girl is willing to sleep with him or be his partner. The girl is tossed aside and pretty much forgotten in the story while a new girl is introduced.
This goes on for a while female classmate -> former fiancee -> female teacher -> female coworker/maid -> female golddigger etc.
The story is basically about conquering their hearts and the tossing them aside for new girl once they like MC. Without anything happening or any kind of resolution with the girl.
To start of the story begins with the MC dying and being summoned by the soul of another world greatest fire mage of all time, fearing that the new magic system that called "beast art magic" he created with a group of other mages would be lost because of the lack of inheritors. He used up all his magic power and his own life and then spent over a thousand years in as a spirit to look for someone who can be an inheritor. In come the Japanese MC, since the magic art needs a ton of mana the MC who has even more mana then the greatest mage of all time was summoned.
Now up to here it's "fine" I guess but as the MC asks why didn't you transfer your own soul into this created body instead of growing old and looking for inheritors. This is brushed of by saying his soul wasn't compatible and his soul was already old and weary. This part just get's me confused since the body created turns out to be a super human body with, super strength, toughness and eternal youth. So they could give a body eternal youth but the group still died of old age.... okey fine I can live with that even though it makes no sense. But then the spirit goes and fuses with the MC's soul to give him all his knowledge about the world, stuff and magic, no problem with compatibility when fusing with the body now... Then the whole setting is for the MC to become a mage and carry on the beast art magic which he does to some degree, but more on that later.
The MC starts out within the first few chapters in the story with killing beasts and eventually even people without a second thought and slices them up in half and cutting their arms and legs of, which should make their guts and blood spill or fly everywhere. This just happens like it's nothing special but later on in the story the author actually makes it so that while fighting against a former companion who betrays him and tries to murder his friends.
He survives because the MC get's stunned while trying to kill him because of acid the MC had thrown on his face made his face melt and become distorted. Which would be fine if it happened a 100 chapters earlier but after constantly propping the MC up as a killing machine who slices people into pieces like nothing and for no more reason that they rub him the wrong way, while at the same time using fire magic to melt/burn people and monster into undescribable things. While fighting an enemy he first misses his target by slicing his arm of instead of splitting him in two like he was going to, and then stands there staring at the person as if being stunned while the other clutches onto his face until he get's help and escapes. T
his to me is one of the weakest "oh the villain got away" moments that I've read this year. In just a few chapters after this the MC even mentions how he thought about slicing of the ears, nose, lips etc and doing a bunch of torturing to a guy who arrogantly told him to give him all his stuff and his beast companion for parts, who the MC then directly tries to murder, but eventually let's go off only to have that same guy ban the MC from all the weapon shops which again instantly makes the MC go into a murder rampage. Sure while arrogant nobles are bad at this point what exactly did the guy do to deserve being killed? Nothing except for demanding stuff which the MC refused the MC directly went on to try and kill the guy even though the other side didn't do anything except for verbally demanding for stuff.
The whole setting of the novel is that the MC's healing power works to reverse something to it's previous state. So when MC get's ahold of the demon kings heart which is pretty much a mega mana crystal that allows the casting of super powerful spells. So by super charging his heal spell he is able to reverse time to 4 years earlier. This is done by his healing spell turning the whole planet and everything on it to it's previous state 4 years earlier.
So now we know the MC's power right? To make things take on a previous shape. Wrong!
After this the MC's power is changed or get's limitations like how it's impossible to restore life or life force. Why? Because the author either forgot the setting or decided it's to OP so it is nerfed/changed through out the story. Frankly I wouldn't mind that much if the whole story and setting wasn't based on it.
Also how the F is it that when the MC remembers everything he still decided to act the same at the start which involves him being drugged, abused and raped for about 2 months. When he could have much more easily just played a long and done his revenge? Points thats why he wants people to get revenge points so he can take revenge. Fine the MC is insane and stupid I get it. But how is it that during his first "life" he manages to create 3-4 OP "healing" spells with way different uses and use them to steal exp, skills and boost his stats when he was drugged so badly that the 4 years he couldn't think about anything but drugs.
He also does this during his two months in his "second" life only this time the reason it took only 2 months to awaken is cause he ate some drugs for a few day's before going to the castle. Which makes 0 sense since after healing himself his body would revert to a previous state before being druged therefore not getting any of the resistance his body built up.
Also fine you can convince me that the MC can learn to tolerate the pain a single person has gone through when he heals someone, but to not even think or mention that by doing this to the planet and everyone on it he would probably have to be burdened with the pain that everything on the planet has ever felt. And seeing as a single person can almost "kill" him but he adapted to tolerate it, imagine what would happen if that pain is increased by a billion or a trillion. Author seems pretty unaware of this part.
But hey this story is so inconsistant and the MC's power so badly thought out and always changing. That this is simply a rant at bad writting I guess.
MC lives as a beggar and is given money from the Saint Sword and offered help if he needs it again. MC goes out of town after using said money, is ambushed and betrayed by his friend he brings his dying female friend to the guild of the Saint Sword and is refused help. Female friend dies and MC also bleeds to death and swears revenge on the Saint Sword for being a hypocrite that only offers help.
So after rescuing a random girl on a whim the MC explains to her what his reason for doing all of this is. Which is to defeat the evil organisation who is in control of the world and trying to ruin the heroes decendents who the girl is one of!
This is all made up by the MC to outlive his fantasies and get the girl to play along.
However not known to the MC is that all his made up stuff is real and the girl in turn goes on to create a huge shadowy organisation to fight this evil (their all girls btw since only the female decendents of the hero becomes cursed since the heroes were all female) so while the hero thinks their all just playing games the girls are all seriously fighting this organisation.
While believing the MC to be all powerful since he keeps pulling stunts like being shown a map of enemy hideouts and asked which one to go hit. Then he random throws a knife on the map and the knife just happens to hit a secret base the girls hadn't found yet and which is the correct one to hit.
There are 7 starting girls for his power in the shadow who are all crazily in love with him from what has been shown, on top of this there are at the very least 100+ girls in the group who see's him like a god like exsitance and would do anything for him.
His big sister is a serious brocon and loves him dearly, he has two princesses and a scientist girl who are all in love with him. So yeah all in all he has about 120+ harem members in the first 60ish chapters.
To give some perspective the MC mostly just runs around killing people for benefits. The MC also later on dies but his soul escapes and after hundreds of years of eating up other demonic souls somehow transforms into a soul eating monster.
On top of this he choses to cultivate a body cultivation that works in the way that he places his main body into the crust of the world he was born in and slowly absorbs all the worlds energy, eventually leading him to become somewhat of a godlike existence but at the expense of sucking the planet dry thus killing it and everyone who lives of it. So yeah pretty evil MC.
This is also somewhat of the weird part of the story since the first 1/5 of the story is about the MC while the rest of the story is pretty much only about a clone the MC uses to cultivate the mystic arts at the same time.
The MC at one point need to make a pill but has no experience or knowledge with pill making. So to fix this MC's solution is to kidnap a beautiful female from a pill sect and force her to work for him. He doesn't really treat her badly except for the fact that she has to do what he says or die and she is stuck in a cave alone for most of the time, at one time she is left alone for a 100+ years I believe and is eventually set free after he had gotten what he wants.
However somewhere along the way all that mold in the cave probably got to the girl and she fell in love with the MC.
Several hundred years later they reunite and we found out that the girl has always loved MC and been waiting for him, MC is somewhat moved by her dedication and accepts her love but because of cultivation has to leave shortly after getting together with her since you know plot gotta move forward.
So he then leaves again after a short time together and as far as I've read not seen her again for several hundred years
To give some example chinese are the rulers of the world, both before the apocalypse and after they are always the best and strongest.
The MC starting country which is showcased as westernish and ruled by buisnessmen is evil and the MC easily betrays the country and joins another cause it hasn't given him anything and he likes the more ancient chinese like country more. (Since you know free education, food and support doesn't matter, while the leaders are pretty bad the first 100ish chapter feels like serious pro china propaganda)
In the starting part the MC is among the few chinese living in the country and is raised in a western city and culture. (This always confused me in the setting how a western chinese can be so pro china and wants to return to "china")
He is fairly early on surrounded by 3 western girls but even though they try their best to make him like them, he can't come to love them but their his possesions and pretty much tells them that they can only be his s*xual outlet.
It is heavily implied over the chapters that he looks down on the western girls and that they are all sluts that can only be used for s*xual favours and their only reason to be in the story is to be the MC's s*xual relief. It doesn't matter how pretty or hard the girls try they can at most be s*x buddies.
This is the ongoing trend for all the western girls until he goes over to the chinese side where he instantly falls in love with a proper chinese girl.
Who he then goes on to rape which as usual ends with the girl loving him. Now that he has started to get his first legal "wife" he becomes more open to western girls and is willing to allow them to become his concubines.
In comes a slave harem consisting of 9 female slaves who for all facts and purposes instantly falls in love with MC and wants to marry him some even seeing him or even proclaiming him as their husband (this is done in 2-3 chapters from their introduction). One of them even gives a wedding vow on the first night. They are litterly introduced as 9 flesh dolls for the MC.
After this even though it has been repeatedly mentioned that the worlds citizens are extremly religious (fanatics) idiots. The novels whole foundation is that the people are stupid so MC had to be summoned to save the world.
On a side note what is even weirder is that the religion is so important that it is the foundation of almost every kingdom but this is a world where gods can appear and manifest give blessings and directly talk with their followers. The setting is that the world is about to end so the gods need MC to save it.
However they can't give to much cheat powers (cause that would be to easy and cheating, stated by the leading goddess) nor can they directly interfere cause then there would be no novel?
Anyhow the slave harem is then given the control of the dungeon while the MC takes a back seat. He seriously becomes a "stud" that the slave harem + some princesses and others wants to be impregnated by. This is pretty much the story for the next 100 chapters.
It takes some 60 chapters till he accepts it. Then 5-10 chapters are litterly spent on the MC asking the goddess if he can make them pregnant after which another goddess gives them a blessing to easily become pregnant, have a safe pregnancy and child birth, while the MC is given a blessing to increase chance of impregnation and s*xualstamina. It is then spent on how he tries to impregnate them and how they fight over his favour and seed.
The blessing also has to be hush hush since that godess who blessed is the goddess of a single kingdom and if they got to know other countries people were blessed by their goddess there would be a crusade!!!!
I've now given a quick summary of the stories first 100+ chapters with a focus on some parts.
Some example three loli's are the first to sleep with him (just sleep) but also the one's who starts assaulting him in his sleep. They all give him a BJ in his sleep to "prevent" any masturbation since they wouldn't allow anyone else getting his seed not even a tissue. This is then used as "comical relief" in that one of them say's she wants to lickilick more and get a better taste, which MC thinks means she wants an ice cream. Later on when he is about to remotely control another body they tell him not to worry since they will have fun and continue babymaking with his body even when he's not there....
Also for the record I also had a look at the manga and jesus that one basically makes the first 20 chapters into 1-2 manga chapters just to rush past it. Also the Oppai Loli is show cased to be barely 90-100 cm tall and that her chest is pretty much half her body -.-
As usual loli's are involved in fact the first two heroines and who are also the main heroines and love interests are less then 10 years old in appearence but he's not a lolicon yeah! (most used line in JP novels nowadays introduce lot's of loli's but the MC keeps saying he's not a lolicon... maybe it's just the authors)
One of them is called meat and is a s*x slave bought by a bandit chief who is raped everyday for a week or two in the dungeon while the MC and loli watches and doesn't do anything. So you'd think the author doesn't shy away from s*x or at least physical relationships.
Nothing happens after this part except that Meat is used as a hug pillow by the MC when he goes to sleep and thats it. While I don't require it but with the mature tag and it's beginning I really thought this one would take a more mature approach to the harem members relationship with the MC.
I mean here the author introduces an 8 (?) year old broken s*x slave that is shown to being constantly raped and has no will to live. In comes MC gives some hamburgers, pats her head and two days later she's back to a normal 8 year old girl who's madly in love with MC for no reason. Sure you could argue that he helped her and such but it happens way to fast, wouldn't a beastkin girl normaly at least be traumatised of male humans after being captured and kept as a s*x slave?
To give him courage he is eventually raped by a girl (in his dreams? a bit unclear) which in turn makes him really start to accept his feelings for the first loli (also hinted at they might have had s*x or done naughty things while he wasn't himself) but he instantly gives a shallow excuse to not make the relationship progress. Not sure why more and more JP MC's has to be raped by the girl to progress in their relationship.
Where loli will make out with big boob nee-san or loli will suck on nee-san finger and then nee-san licks finger or loli steeps on the MC to give him a massage or loli..... you get the picture
Though no harem tag all the author's works have harem, some of the heroines introduced are super similar to previous harem members and are gunning for MC while he had shown interest. MC also promised the dying father of his friend that he would make a big enough family and have enough kids to make up for his 8 companions who didn't get to make a family. So harem pretty much confirmed.
The other gods create new life forms "monsters" whos main puprose is to kill or drive fear into humanity into worshipping the gods again. These are directly seen as evil which I would agree that they are but at the same time they are still living beings. But to the MC they should all be erased since they threaten humans, he even goes as far as instantly killing the godess of earth because she enacts a plan that threatens to turn thousands of humans into mindless drones to stop the fighting and give energy to the earth godess.
Now this might sound like a good act, but is it? When it happens the earth godess is slowly dying because of the fact that she has been sealing something that threatens to destroy the world. The MC had already dealt with it but no one told the godess to stop sealing the area. Some might argue that he told her to move, but he never warns her only telling her to move after shooting and then "killing" her.
We later also learn that all the other gods were created from the MC, and that basically they were all created simply as tools to create the perfect world for the MC after which they would cease to be useful and he could erase them if he so desired because they had lost their use, the MC could also destroy the whole world if he deemed it a failure. So the MC is something akin to a crazy scientist that holds only fanatacism towards his creations
Like most MC's this one has eidict memory remembering a bunch of stuff that happened 20 years ago like it all happened yesterday.
MC is explained as having 20 years of battlefield experience which is why he is such a bad ass at tactics, military knowledge, troop management as well as having knowledge about everything.
However this is a setting on top of the fact that a) MC was a low ranked group leader never gaining a rank over leading 20ish people b) the MC didn't know how to read untill 5-10 years had passed on the battlefield c) most of his time is explained as having to earn money since he had to pay for gear and bribes and move to a higher tier army which is a big reason for his low rank since d) it's under the setting that secret, vital and dangerous information was freely handed out to every soldier in the armies (no fear of information leaks here eh?) e) While appearently having no money he was somehow while being a low ranked leader with no connections able to get information about most things, people, places etc etc.
So with those points and more the MC is many times better then an commanding officer with 10 years battle experience since he has 20 years he knows stuff and tactics not even people going through commanding officer training. He also for some reason got a hold and studied all his previous battles so that even when from when he was a newly arrived grunt he knows everything.
So if you can look past that he somehow managed to get a hold of, and read up about hundreds if not thousands of battles, tactics, events people, terrain etc etc that would have taken years while never leaving the battlefield except for short vacations. It's a good read.
The MC joins the army with a guy (I believe their from the same village as well but can't remember if it is so or not) who is extremly skilled at using the spear who was quickly acknowledged and specially chosen to be trained. This led to him becoming a master in the spear on a fast track in carrer and nobility eventually becoming a duke.
The MC pretty much downplays how he became distant and wasn't a "good" friend (this is the vibe I got) after becoming rich and famous. Even so the spear guy taught the MC his self created spear technique and that he named after himself. Which the MC then uses all the time, and through out the stories begining. He also helped the MC out by handing him some tips and information to help him out. We also later find out the reason the MC could even reincarnate was that the guy used his most precious artifact said to being someone back to life in the hope of brining his best friend (the MC) back to life which leads to the MC coming back to life but in the past.
So how does the MC thank him? By teaching him his future self created spear technique and shamelessly renaming the spear technique in his name and saying he was the one who created the spear technique. He also makes the guy his subordinate and steals his fast track carrer opportunity cause the MC is N1.
So yeah douche detected
