Don't believe all the hype, it's just a story about a twisted MC trying to get into girls pants by killing off the guys the girls love, the so called character growth they undergo is something they were always perfectly capable of doing on their own, at best the beneficial development they get is the fact that they get more screen time thanks to being the MC's main interest that's really only beneficial to the readers and eventually just choosing to be with him rather than oppose him and undergo... more>> tragedy again.

The various races prior to the heroes arrival were never quite peaceful, but after the heroes arrived the humans started gaining traction, the MC not liking the prospect of the world becoming peaceful due to it getting united and liking the existence of variety in terms of morals and body types since it benefited him directly thanks to his personality and power (the mirror) so he chose to just not get involved anymore ignoring the conflict, but in order to get into the orc princess's pants (she's mostly an elf so she's attractive) he promised to kill all the human reincarnators and went around murdering the male reincarnators and doing what he could to get into the female reincarnators' pants, starting with the party that he befriended when he first came to the new world and going from there.

The MC never actually does anything "good" for anyone, that's fine I read this knowing full well that it wasn't going to happen, but his mind is just messed up in such a way that this really just isn't fun unless your just here to read murder/netori (netorare where the MC is doing the stealing) plots being undertaken by a mentally disturbed MC, there's simply not much of anything, else not really anything else but that, and even that get's incredibly repetitive very early on... What comes after isn't really made a focus either, world-wise I get it, it's really irrelevant since there are simply too many heroes for his actions to really matter, but on a personal scale he got access to the girls but it never really develops into anything worth reading). <<less

The summary is a bit misleading

MC reincarnates into the body of a slave boy that just recently got a blessing from the god of fortune; the game skill appraise (the ability to see status windows) and the slave boy as a result was therefore being raised as an apprentice, the MC apparently played the game the new world was based on and therefore knows what's most suitable to the different races/initial stats (plot hole: for some reason the residents of that world never figured out what was most suitable themselves... more>> prior to this point despite the appraise skill not being unique to the MC) so he becomes the best thanks to his game knowledge.

Pros
-The new world seems interesting (he might not have much interaction with it though...)
-It's supposed to be about business (It might be worth reading if this is enough for you to be interested)
Cons
- The MC is a generic "my morals are inherently better than yours" MC
- The MC is too narrow minded, just reacts based on whether he likes/dislikes something (he doesn't give any thought to why things are the way they are; example: he vilifies people that treat him in a way that he doesn't like without considering why he received such treatment"early on he keeps getting beat due to his behavior, the first time it was due to the timing in which the MC took over the boys body, afterwards it was the MC's fault", he sees that something isn't as he likes and immediately starts vilifying the people he thinks are responsible without any consideration for why things were that way...) Note: there are some moments when he isn't totally ignorant but those moments are typically just cause it's plot powered intellect, aka: they're moments made to make the MC look good. <<less

This is definitely the worst wish-fulfillment otome I've ever read... given that this is a one-shot I'm surprised by just how bad they managed to make it... unless you just want to read constant pretentious bragging by the MC about how great she is from herself and at the end from her fiancee don't read this... Just that and how inferior everyone else is, is literally all there is to this oneshot....

It's about an MC with a unbelievably bad personality that fancies herself super intelligent and above everyone else, especially... more>> now that she's been reincarnated, first half is about how annoyed she is over the heroine trying to become friends with her, how stupid the heroine is, as well as how stupid the guys are for liking the heroine and how much she dislikes the heroine for bothering her by trying to become her friend, second half is about how great she is inherently and how great she is now that she's reincarnated having scored highly in school thanks to her prior knowledge and made great efforts towards making sure that her body turned out as beautiful as possible. Out of nowhere a rich/powerful heir of Mishima's Group, a group that pretty much controls the countries commerce appears having apparently fallen for her, and immediately upon appearing he starts condescendingly talking down towards the heroine for not recognizing how great the MC is, praising the MC for how amazing she appeared to be thanks that one conversation he had with her in the past, he's really obedient to the MC's whims in a way that comes off as being a pet dog rather than a human, they marry, and the MC lives happily ever after the end. (Note: They show the fiancee's perspective and yeah his falling in love is really out of nowhere, all of a sudden when he first meets her he falls in love with her at first sight thanks to her "bunch of compliments in a pretentious tone") <<less

The early story is actually kinda good/fun, if you just want a simple relaxing daily life story where things just kinda fall into place naturally without any real effort needed or conflicts transpiring, but honestly it doesn't stay good for very long, at all. (If your interested in it, I'd recommend the first 8 chapters, maybe the first 20 at most, at least up till that point the author cared enough to not just add random stuff and then pretend anything inconvenient to the next narrative going the way the... more>> author wants never happened instead of coming up with a reason for why the next narrative still goes the way it goes)

At first all the story really consists of are the characters, they start out as rather simple minded peaceful people to the point of coming off as one dimensional, but they're well implemented so they're fun, but pretty early on the characters simply become really dumb card board cut outs of they're former selves and/or random tropes, plus really unaware of their surroundings, at around the same point in which that happens the story transitions from being about the characters to being about the MC getting involved (regularly) in unnaturally implemented and all around uninteresting developments that he then proceeds to resolve via the use of his gun (s) and the ever so "convenient" magical bullets with their ever changing based on the scenario abilities. He spends quite a lot of his time farming (grinding) for bullets and then immediately squandering them despite not "really" needing them practically ever, under the false pretext of efficiency (he spends more time farming bullets than he would simply getting things done without using bullets, several chapters worth more). (Oh right I should mention from that point on he just kind of does wasteful/stupid stuff at random and has it magically turn out to have been either not entirely squandered in the sense that at least he lucks out and doesn't experience any particularly bad consequences as a result of his actions or his actions turn out to have been the right choice since something convoluted ends up happening out of nowhere to justify them)

example 1 of MC's efficiency : items spawn where the monster is killed therefore he picks up the monsters and throws them towards his cart shooting them before they land so that the item lands in the cart, instead of say simply squeezing them with his hand insta-killing them and just throwing the item...

example 2 of MC's efficiency: it takes 1 punch, 1 magic bullet, or 5 normal bullets to kill this type of monster, so far I've been beating them with one punch but for the sake of efficiency I'll use 2 guns so that I can shoot 2 magic bullets at it instead of just 1 magic bullet... (once you learn how he grinds for magic bullets this will become even more frustrating to read him do, put simply he's doing three times as much and taking three times as long at least to do things compared to if he simply didn't use bullets)

example 3 of MC's efficiency: I don't know if I have enough magic bullets to both make it there and escape therefore I'm going to use one to kill my opponent and another just for the heck of it really (he needed the magic bullets for the first time but wasted half of them on something he'd always done by hand prior to that point, why? I guess he suddenly forgot that he could do it by hand? no good explanation was ever given), *later that scene* I've made it here but I'm out of magic bullets and my fists aren't working therefore I'm going to have to run, it's not like the opponents can leave their areas (they'd die) or really harm me in any meaningful way anyway (he really didn't even "need" to fight, had he not fought on his way in he wouldn't even have needed to "worry about the possibility" of having created rouge monsters on the way in something that didn't happen) in the end as he's finally running away instead of trying to kill the monsters for no reason, a character appears in a place that the particular character had no way of getting access to (the character would've died in route if they tried going there) and bringing along something that they had no way of bringing, so that the MC could grind for bullets and kill the monsters instead of running and so he grinds bullets and kills the monsters scenario end (yeah the author just glosses over the character managing to get there and how they brought something they couldn't actually bring). (NOTE: in that particular scene the reason why magic bullets were needed was because magic bullets invoke/cast magic something the MC himself can't do, and only magic was effective against the monsters in this development, the reason the MC had to do it was because all methods of invoking/casting magic were currently impossible to use due to a magic storm... magic bullets invoke/cast magic that's all... they aren't supposed to work but since they're "supposed to be" the necessary for the MC to kill the monsters they just did, why? cause they just did, okay, the author just glosses over everything that happened in that chapter from then on aside from how yeah the magical bullets turned out to be needed for something for once (but not really though...) and he managed to use the magic bullets to accomplish his mission) <<less

My Disciple Died Yet Again

My reason for reviewing it so lowly is simple, the MC is pretty much an abusive, naive, hypocritical, self-absorbed airhead with an inability to grow as a character no matter how much time passes, as far as the humor I haven't really noticed anything I found funny, there are some comedy routines but they're often just her getting her way thanks to being the MC and despite how badly she may deserve to have that not be the case.

History’s Strongest Senior Brother
April 20, 2017

For about the first 25 or so chapters if you don't pay too much attention, it's an amusing story about an MC that thinks he's been reincarnated as a minor villain in another MC's story, but in reality all the perks that the supposed "MC's" enjoy and that he dislikes them for having, he's already been enjoying to a far greater extent all along and continues to throughout the story though more subtly (the story doesn't call attention to it, it try's to play it of as simple background info,... more>> despite always drawing attention to the supposed "MC"'s perks)

Afterwards the MC just becomes a standard MC he's always right/good and anything he dislikes or that goes against him is inherently bad, so when he's outright corrupt against the innocent he's still good. Anyway the quality tanks from here on with the whole; an unjust antagonist that with MC like qualities shows up and is defeated leading to the MC improving his situation either through obtaining items or prestige thing repeating over and over as the MC slowly becomes an ever more boring MC to an ever more boring/repetitive story <<less

Running Away From The Hero!
February 8, 2018
Status: c8 part3
Chapters 1 through 4 are amazing, I honestly recommend reading them and just pretending that the end of chapter 4 is the end of the story... everything afterwards is just so much worse though both in terms of quality and content...

Well anyway, the only thing I "really" want to say is this, the first 4 chapters are great but the remaining 4 chapters are just an atrociously bad retelling of the first 4 chapters. Oh, and, the MC is a cheat at everything! he just lacks the ability to... more>> utilize mana himself, he could easily lead a relaxing safe life if he felt like it, and the fact that he was a villain becomes irrelevant within the first chapter (that chapter takes place prior in time to the prologue...), put simply this story falls apart if you pay too much attention to detail just enjoy it half halfheartedly.

Chapters 5 and onward are just disgusting... And honestly just a way of retelling chapters 1 through 4 in a "superficially" different setting with "superficially" more characters but with worse treatment for the students, unrealistic developments/results, and the MC turning into a different character entirely, actively choosing to be cruel without a good reason, using the metal bat without reserve, actively being stupid in a way that harms his chances at survival (he does stuff that's just all around stupid for him to do, at first the MC and the bat call attention to some of the stupid stuff he does giving immersion breakingly bad excuses for why he can get away with what he does, then they just lightly mention how the ideas are bad, then finally they just gloss over how bad the ideas are)... all around the MC just turns into a petty whiny completely unlikable character.

Anyway, the story devolves into the MC implementing really atrocious and all around just bad school policies (that should get the school shut down and the teachers punished (torture/execute) for the former due to just how stupidly bad they are and for the latter due to how inhumane they are) in a school on the verge of getting shut down turning the school into essentially the same thing his training grounds used to be, up till chapter 4, for the sake of making use of the secret identity he felt like using, despite having plenty of better options as far as where to go into hiding (he has to make public appearances in places that honestly he has no "valid" excuse for getting away with appearing at right from the start) (all around his policies are just bad for both the school and for teaching the students, the only real benefits the students receive are entirely unrelated to his policies one the summoned beasts and two the practice <-- what should essentially be their normal curriculum always given the type of school it is, the paperwork is just random and out of nowhere)

Not to mention that the circumstances of the school are blatantly out of nowhere (aka: forced) the school supposedly survived since the founding of the empire but what's bringing it down now is something that has been a fundamental issue of the school since it's founding... the fact that there's really no benefit to going to such a school, anything that school can offer can either be obtained by an anyone with the qualifications to enter it easily prior/without going to any school or can get obtained better in one of the other schools, until the MC arrives with his cheat knowledge that is... then the trash parents regardless of how bad the school has become force their kids into attending and everything just goes the way the MC wants.

Lastly, given how bad he makes things for the students, realistically even if everything went as smoothly as the author says it does with the trash parents, and him not getting caught due to his newfound stupidity, realistically there should've been mass suicides by the students, unlike the first trio they don't have some special reason for enduring the torture that they receive, honestly there's not even a valid reason for torturing being used on them them, (the first trio were likely to rebel/try to kill MC but these students were genuinely just good normal students), torture that's way worse than the torture the trio received at that (silver bat torture), to the point that it's apparently much worse than death, even according to a god to such an extent that it was willing to sell it's soul, something way worse than death itself as it's essentially true death, there's no way of coming back from that. <<less

Don't worry there's no shounen ai (aka: boy love) in this, I think the tag is just there as a joke. (Unless you read it you won't understand why)

Spoiler

I don't think he actually likes guys he just doesn't want kids since he doesn't want to have to share his favorite types of foods and kids may well inherit his taste for food

Good story at first (5/5) It's a great comedy for kids at least till around volume 8 (7 is just bad... but 8 is still good)

But as the story goes on the characters even the background characters and the developments slowly get dumber and dumber till eventually it becomes unreadable... and no despite what you might think at first the MC is definitely a chivalry freak he just exempts "himself" from the violence aspect of it this becomes ever more apparent as the story drags out... after a certain... more>> point all the main characters just become entirely unlikable thugs going about they're daily lives... despite how good it was at first, I can't give it more than 1/5 knowing what it turns into later... <<less

Expecting to Fall into Ruin, I Aim to Become a Blacksmith

Updated Review:

Volumes 1-5 are the story (5/5)

Volume 6 is the epilogue (5/5)

... more>> Chapter 7 is a weird sequel/epilogue/forceful continuation (0/5)

The Story/Epilogue are great but stop reading after that what follows isn't good. Volume 7 start's off just a fun continuation of the epilogue up till chapter 3, then takes a sudden rapid nose dive in terms of quality by adding in tons of new forced developments that simply aren't compatible with the story prior to this point, ranging from some of the core established knowledge about the status of the countries power levels being overturned (would work if that knowledge didn't originate from the world's origin "the game"), to stuff like artillery and trains being invented all of a sudden by people far less knowledgeable then the people of the past, not to mention that magic is all of a sudden being perceived very differently from before, and there are more weak nobles with bad/conflicting morals to be punished, some by death others by less reprehensible yet more petty means.

Old Review:

Really well written characters, the MC's daily life as he aims to make his domain prosper, and the occasional interesting development are the focus of this story, if your here looking for a story about how the MC breaks the the rules/regulations/laws constantly getting away with it cause they're the protagonist or cause they're the good guy, that eventually grows in power/authority to the point where no one can influence him and he just does whatever he wants, than go look elsewhere this is not for you, if your here for a fun relaxing read than congratulations this is the story for you. As for why people keep saying it gets bad after volume 2, honestly the main cause is that the translation quality after the first translator kuroinfinity (aka: slothtranslations) went on break, other people picked it up and well, I'm sorry to say but the quality ever since has never really been the same, I do feel that even given that it's definately still worth reading though. (NOTE: don't try reading it on one of those "we have a bunch of translations from a bunch of different people sites", I have no idea where they got the translations after kuroinfinity's but honestly at some points they're even worse than using google translate look up who translated the parts on this novelupdates and go to their sites instead the quality difference is like night and day)

Aside from that the only thing I've noticed other people really complaining about is something that happened only once, the MC got punished for behaving like a vigilante and attacking people that hurt one of his friends instead of reporting them to the school in well the exact same way that they end up reporting him (part of what upsets people more about his is that the MC prepared something so that he wouldn't get caught but it doesn't work out) the MC getting in trouble is his own fault honestly and he acknowledges it, he took the punishment for beating someone up in exchange for getting to beat them up himself since as was shown when he was punished for doing the exact same thing, the official punishment is practically a slap on the wrist. (He stays in a cell for three days, eating just rice instead of the luxurious food they usually eat, his friends come visit, and despite missing classes he gets notes so it doesn't affect him, to him the punishment was nothing more than a chance to relax for once) (The MC is not a wimp he's simply not a muscle headed idiot, that doesn't understand that actions (in this case him assaulting someone to get revenge) can lead to unintended consequences that can affect not only himself but those he cares about as well, things work out, but as the MC said they could've gone horribly badly had the people he got revenge on really wished for them to.) <<less

Demon King & Hero
October 4, 2017
Status: v9c3
To Anyone considering reading this: CH = Volume and SS = Side Story (Trust me give it a read through volume 7)

The SS chapters should be read after everything else or at least until volume 7, unless you've read the story they're not going to be that much fun... (They're not bad on their own necessarily but not particularly outstanding either, put simply if you haven't read the story they may well just leave you bored since you won't know anything about the characters involved.)

I really recommend... more>> reading this it's one of the best romantic comedies I've seen, until volume 7 everything after honestly you can just ignore, it doesn't add anything to the story it's just a mess from then on... Is the story good?: It's a 10/10 funny comedy with a lovely romance story up till volume 7, then well... the story's premise is that the Hero making a bet willingly and losing, and from that point on living with the consequences of her actions, consequences which just so happen to be being forced to live a happy "normal" life with an attractive demon lord that's head over heals in love with her...

But from the second half of volume 7 on... specifically from the moment the characters get angry with the chief god the story becomes 0/100, the whole story just becomes a mess...

Here's why volume 7 onward really has nothing to do with the rest of the story
Spoiler

The author stopped caring about the established powerlevels, hierarchy, and prior-relationships of the characters... in other words the context... it's just a bunch of jokes thrown around here and there till eventually the ending... the author uses the fact that he threw out the context to make an unjustifiable development occurs... suddenly, all the characters lose their personalities, and thanks to the author no longer caring about context, the heroine gets a trial that's supposed to justify her change in personality... it honestly doesn't, the change is simply too extreme, and only there to lead up to the ending lover's quarrel, aka the ending... The ending after having forgotten the personalities of every single character and thrown away the context up, the author created a generic ending where the heroine friendzones the protagonist when asked if she'll marry him... the heroine does it in a way that makes it seem like she's being nice but honestly, just no... she acknowledges that her feelings towards him are like that of a lover until then, but she doesn't like him enough anymore and tells him off saying that she doesn't like him enough because... well that would be a spoiler so I won't say why but pretty much she lists a bunch of stuff that when in context consisted of stuff that she either happily agreed to but was unsatisfied with the results of or she was entirely at fault for, ending her rant by saying that as a result he was totally unattractive to her... after recovering from the shock, he tries talking her into wanting to go back to their prior happy way of life even if they're relationship never goes beyond what it already was, so she then proceeds to trample over his emotions till he finally gives up (Honestly he seemed suicidal, since important context was done away with to lead up to this ending he had nothing left anymore), then she says she no longer likes him enough to want to be with him but she likes him enough to become friends...

[collapse]

Why am I still giving it a 5 star review despite what happens from the second half of volume 7 onwards? because the first 7 volumes are something I really want others to check out, they're just that good. <<less
