Jumping in timeline, flashback, and stuff is perfectly fine! If done correctly that is :S
another saying "Tell but not show" is actually pretty acurate to describe the first 30 chapters and just the author in general I guess :P
so at first I was wondering why the author decided to start the story at the present in which the MC is 24 years old instead of at earlier age, I thought it was because he is tired of the general isekai novel where they usually start at as early as baby or early teen and instead jump into the already adult MC so that we could skip the boring part and start with the interesting one instead like some other novel, for example Running Away From The Hero! Etc, but I was wrong. So instead of actually telling the story and let the reader experience the MC life of when he gets reincarnated and growing up, the hardship, the confusion of the MC, other characters reaction, and other interesting bits is just not there, or at least it wasn't well presented because the author decided to just throw a lot of info dump about the MC past with unnecessary detail, makes me wonder why the author didn't just start the story from when he was still a teenager instead since it is such a waste of potential
God knows why the MC decided to rape his maid, I'm totally fine with rape if it adds to the story but there is a lack of consistency in the MC's behavior and I just cannot wrap my head around it, f**k this sh*t, I'm out
the Hero is strong, so strong that he could reach the demon lord alone, as he was about to kill "maou", maou asked, "yuusha, be mine!" of course he refused, and then an epic fight.... didnt happen, they start to talk about the world and unlike what hero initially thought, killing the demon lord won't solve anything, the demon lord knew that well and manage to persuade the kind but naive and not so bright hero, they end up becoming an accomplice, they fake their fight with mutual defeat to gain time.
Finally, the real journey began, they start their world revolution in human world, "how do you change the world? first you need to fix one main problem, food!" on country side somewhere they, or should I say the smart and talented Maou, start to spread some information on how to increase the crops yield and new kinds of crops, also other invention for the better of the masses, and even got title of "Saint" but of course its not all smooth sailing, while the demon king away the hero who is not so bright but strong as hell went to the demon world instead and take care of rebellion and other matter, while in human world the demon king busy with making deal with merchants and of course the nobles and religion would make trouble as usual just cuz they can, alright I admit that it's not the religion, it's the corrupt higher up, just like real world. Although this novel is full of politic, domestic affair, kingdom/World Building, there is also many fan service fluffy situation as a break, there is also light harem (not stupid harem where the MC would get cute girl every single arc), and some touching scene as well which I absolutely wont spoil.
Although at the start it was kinda slow paced but they take their time building everything nicely, just so you could enjoy the development of the story and they will come nicely with some twist and turn, like drinking bitter coffee and eating a layered sweet and sour strawberry cream cake
After being silent for a moment, Xiu speaked, “Killing you is equivalent to killing me myself.”
“As of now, I am attaching myself and existing within your body. In case that you are dead, my soul will also subsequently fly away and scatter.”
This information is not bad! Shen Yanxiao was beaming as she continued to acquire information fraudulently.
‘So, after you have obtain your freedom, will it mean that you can be relieved in eliminating me?”
“I will never kill you.”
“Oh? Why?” Shen Yanxiao opened her mouth as she smiled happily while inquiring. However, there was nevertheless a complete differencebetween the naive smiles of hers and the sharpness in her eyes.
“During the time when I choose to stay in your body, we have already agreed and signed a soul agreement where I will lose ninety percent of my soul if I was to kill you.” Xiu’s voice was like the untranquil waves.
To suffer a damage of ninety percent! Shen Yanxiao seriously wanted to clap her hands. Although it was still unclear on why Xiu was able to attach and exist within her body, she could now be certain that Xiu absolutely would not make any move regardless of any situation because everything was like he had said. For killing her was equivalent to himself committing suicide!
