To be honest, it didn't capture my attention at the beginning, but don't get me wrong, the story is still well written & there's action to keep you going, just not to a grand scale event & vast of vol.1 is dedicated to build up the MC as a "Fool" can be boorish. Knowing this is an old classic LN, things tend to start off slow. This is one classic example as towards every ending and hence forth, the story shift up a gear again & again. For every ending is breathtaking, kept me going for more. New gen LN I call it, tends to start off with interesting plots or an OP character instead. Not all but mostly turns sour, repetitive and goes stale later in my experience. A complete opposite for this LN.
PS: Maybe not everyone's cup of tea but truly a lost for those who dropped this interesting story at early volumes.
