1. "Deus ex AI Chip". That's what this story should have been named. First of all somebody please tell me how this guy is considered a "scientist" when the AI chip literally does ALL his thinking and analyzing for him. He doesn't have to move a single brain cell! Is that what counts as being smart where he's from? He is little more than a body for the AI chip to act through and literally CANNOT do anything by himself if the chip were to suddenly stop working because he... more>> relies on it completely.

2. I'm all for the MC that's efficient in everything he does and eliminates all threats to avoid stupid conflicts, not drooling for and risking life and limb for every good looking bitchy-as-hell female he comes across and chooses NOT to run d*ck first into danger for no reason. What I'm not for is an MC with a personality as interesting as sandpaper with a ridiculously OP AI chip to wipe his ass. He goes past anti-hero and straight into unlikable asshole. Looking out for your own self interest is not a sin, but it is when this one personality trait wipes away your very humanity to the point where he's basically an AI himself. I suspect that it's just a lazy ass way to boycott character development. He avoids even the conflict that he could gain from. He's less like an MC and more of a bystander that you would never really care to know about. Average in every aptitude but (funnily enough) schemes like a scumbag on the low.

3. It's boring. The whole story is like an onion. Conflict is essential to a story so it doesn't help the plot none when the chip solves all of his for him. There's no tension. I'm now 99.999% sure that this is the authors fantasy more than an actual novel.

4. There is no need to end every sentence with an exclamation mark. Especially not with a plot and MC as dull as this one. Some may argue that this could be overlooked but that's a load of bullsh*t. Punctuation is important for setting the tone of a story, but It doesn't matter how tame what the speaker is saying is, it WILL end with an exclamation. You start reading a sentence believing that it's an action packed moment but then you're disappointed when you find out how boring the what they're doing actually is. Is it supposed to make up for the fact that there's no tension? It will give you a headache if you're actually used to good writing.

5. There's f**k all character development so you you really can't give a flying frig about the survival of anyone in the story no matter how you try.

This story messed up my whole day. There just wasn't any coming back after this disappointment. If I could only give it a third of a star. <<less

Meh. It's not bad and it had the potential to be really good but the fact that the main character has the personality of a bowl of plain white yogurt just....... I get she's She supposed to be a normal girl but her personality goes way below normal and past wallflower to plain plaster. She's just so bland. The side characters are way more interesting than her utterly inane thoughts. She's a coward that completely avoids any and all confrontation. Even when someone is making her life hell she doesn't... more>> have the nerve to tell them to stop. She won't even speak up for herself when she's misunderstood (The misunderstandings stopped being funny a whole back too). Its frustrating how much of a jellyfish the MC is. It's like her spine migrated to her brain and decided to stay there permanently because she can think snarky thoughts and complains in her head but that's all she ever does. Sure she has a reputation as an ojousama to keep but that also means not being a total doormat.
Spoiler

She only ever made a move ONCE when it got sooo bad she absolutely had to. The fact that not one of her peers has noticed that she's a total pushover yet is only possible by the will of the mighty author.

[collapse]
If you can't stand novels with spineless MCs (which sadly seems to be the trend in jnovels these days) then stay faaaar away from this.

She's so self conscious, and that's okay I guess, but it stopped being funny and relatable a loooong while back. Now it's like the entire story revolves around her yoyoing weight. She's probably the most disappointing character in the story and that makes me sad.

There was so much potential, and a lot of it was met...... right up until you get to Reika -___-.

There's also the fact that what I assume to be the male lead is a douchebag in dire need of a punch to the f**king face. Enjou is just as much of an asshole too. Completely unlikable enough to both tie for second place as the worst character followed by Kisshouin Kuraage-sama (jellyfish-sama). I'm pretty sure that there's an otome game storyline somewhere in there that involved them but it got lost faster than you could say "mundane". If the plot with otome game was stripped from the synopsis it would leave what seems to be Reika's (inane as hell) daily blog. The stars on this story's rating would just start to fall magnificently.

The best part of this novel was easily the flawless translation which deserves a huge thumbs up followed by those side characters. Some of them were interesting enough to replace the actual MC. -___- <<less

This story had a good thing going. But somewhere along this neverendingly boring plot I lost all the craps I had to give. The concept is GREAT but it was presented in what felt like the most mediocre way. I think 40% of why I dropped this story so quick was because of that incredibly annoying spoiled princess and the MC seemingly incapable of independence/backbone even though he was literally given the power (something that seems typical for Japanese web novels). If the "romance subplot" was gonna be between them... more>> then it was even more a reason to drop this. It just wasn't worth the time. <<less

I NEED more of this in my life! The misunderstandings... they're glorious. Slightly oblivious burly male lead + misleadingly fragile pervy minded muscle fetish Princess = 5/5. They're also already married. +100 points. It's a tragedy that they haven't updated in so long though. <: (

Another invertebrate MC *sigh*. There was potential.... That went to such sh*t because the leading role in this story is being played by the world's most OP doormat. The disappointment. 🤦

Once. JUST ONCE!! I would like to find a decent modern knowledge isekai where the MC isn't some douchebag harem protagonist or just a plain naive idiot like this one.

The story is good. I applaud the world building, but... The MC is the spineless, oblivious type of doormat. I try to enjoy it I really do, but the MC makes me want to facepalm so hard my eyeballs go into the back of my skull.
