LITTLE GOBLIN: Master, Don’t Come Here!
October 10, 2018

After months of passively reading different stories from this site, I finally made an account to drop a review... and it's not quite because I absolutely loved the story. As far as QT novels go, this story is quite standard. It may also be quite enjoyable if this story was someone's first exposure to QT novels. I hesitate calling it a "quick transmigration" novel mainly because the arcs aren't that quick at all. Maybe it's someone's cup of tea, but not mine.

However, the translation quality needs a (lot) bit more... more>> work. I understand that the translating team is letting us read this for free and are doing their utmost to consistently give us content, but it feels like I'm reading MTL. I apologize, but it's true. There's also the issue with formatting in the first handful of chapters. The sporadic bolding for some paragraphs threw me off (thankfully it ended after chapter 29) and the italics for dialogue seems completely unnecessary. In my honest opinion, italics for dialogue should only be used for inner thought/monologue or text/messages/phone conversations.

The story is fine, but the summary doesn't quite fit the actual content of the story itself. I'm from North America, so "goblins" have an entirely different appearance than what was portrayed in the story.

Little goblins are literally little... and they're green. Very little and very green. Reading the synopsis, my western thought process was hesitantly intrigued by the thought of a goblin/human pairing. I'm aware that this is my misunderstanding and that I'm completely at fault for it, but having a handsome human falling in love with a little green monster was what drew me in initially.

I was disappointed that she wasn't a western goblin at all, but just a human with enhanced senses.

As for the ML... well, I'm conflicted. There's part of me that wants to give him a chance, but the other part is reluctant.

Spoiler

I have no idea if his soul transmigrates with her, or if she just pair up with an entirely new ML every time. Also, she didn't fall in love with him in the first world at all! Maybe she did subconsciously, but the summary implied that she knew it before she moved to another world. The summary is completely misleading, and I don't appreciate it.

I also dislike the attitude of the ML in the second world. To be frank, I despised him. There's a fine line between dotingly overbearing and obsessively possessive, and 2nd ML jumped that line by miles. I'm currently on the 3rd arc, but I'm not sure if I'm going to continue.

[collapse]

All in all, I wouldn't recommend this story to veteran QT readers, but I would tentatively suggest this novel to casual first-timers. <<less
