The only reason I can think this series is getting such a low rating is because the chapters are smallish yet the release rate is abysmal. It's a good premise, the writing and translation are fine but 10 months in we have almost nothing to show. It's annoying and I have to suspect that some people are venting with stars.

The grammar is rough but the story and concept seem enjoyable. If you can get past the poor translation it's a decent read and I've read worse translations, once you're used to it's readable except for chapter 5. Chapter 5 is gibberish.

I'll admit I didn't get far so it gets a bonus "benefit of a doubt" star. My biggest issue is with the poor writing style, it's told thru first person narration from the MC's perspective but all the important things are explained by exposition. The MC sees battles from an RPG view and discovers his cheats but doesn't narrate any of that, we find only out because he tells a girl about it. Rather than describing what should be the most interesting parts we get an "oh by the way"... more>> explanation, which would be fine (well not fine but less poorly written) if it was told from an other persons perspective or as 3rd person narrative but we are supposed to be seeing the story thru his eyes.

Edit:I felt after reviewing that it was unfair to do so without reading more than 2 chapters so I went back and read the rest. Final conclusion is the stories not bad but the writing remains mediocre, it deserves a higher score than I have it at first but it's still fairly meh overall. <<less

I'm waiting to see where the story goes but it's getting harder to read such short chapters, 7 chapters in and I've read less than I get out of 1 chapter of most stories. Reading a couple of sentences a day is already making the story feel disjointed, I worry about how the pacing can be done.

Not sure if it's a parody of Grimgal or the author decided Grimgal was too edgy and wanted to make a fluffier version of it but either way pretty much the same story with a smaller starting party (it even references the fact that normally it's a larger party summoned)

Wrote this and it occurred to be to check the author, same as Grimgal so not parody, fluffier story in the same world.
