This is one of the best novels out there if I were to be completely honest. Unlike what most low rated reviews say about this novel having tons of tropes is not necessarily true. Heck it even goes off the conventional path of story writting and brings up its plot amazingly. The characters actually have personality and doesn't go along with majority of the tropes.

But I want to address the fact that most of the low rated reviews here have absolute bullsh*t reasons as to why they rated this novel... more>> so low. I can understand the info dumps which I agree with and also the fact that a lot of people don't tend to get along with novels with slow pacing but otherwise the infuriating reasoning these guys bring up just makes me want to smash my head into the screen.

Some guy said that this novel is full of tropes and referred to rrl novels such as Arcane Emperor and Everybody Loves Large Chest which rely on their friggin harem and fanservice to keep on the top charted with innumerable amount of tropes I can't even list. Heck, might as well say MGA is amazing in plot writting and should deserve no. 1 spot in novel updates. <<less

The Lazy Swordmaster

The story is basically about a STRONG protagonist doing nothing, yup that's right he literally does nothing but what matters most is how good is the story when it comes to its writing and plot and that in my opinion is rather mediocre. The only thing the protagonist is good at is ruining expectations and that's what his intentions are but the way the novel plays out is lacklustre. Characters in it are mainly cardboard cut outs with the only entertaining and compelling one being the butler. Even the MC's... more>> mother is a part of this fault.

As for our MC, he is rather hard to relate to and his job is too astonish people and show how strong he is but is always hiding his identity plus he is a know it all too. The protagonist for no reason knows all kinds of stuff just by smelling something but yet has no idea on how to use magic despite being a hero in his previous life.

The novel always has to force a situation on the protagonist which always seems unrealistic if you consider the chances only for him to show off his aforementioned prowess and astonish people. Currently the way the plot is going is rather bland. MC basically helps someone because she can use specail Magic but that's only to an excuse to add some more stuff to the story.

Turns out she is a victim to expectations like the MC!!! (What are the chances?) and then it devolves into some secret stuff about some higher authorative figure which is obviously illegal. MC again shows how capable, knowledgeable and strong he is and for no reason includes a random family into the matter (unless he did it so because the son of the family really pissed him off by forcing him into a battle against him which I believe would be unlikely for his character unless he is a rather ruthless and easily ticked off, very contradictory nature to his laziness).

In the end like I said before, most of the things are mediocre and plain even though the novel tries real hard to be more serious by including gritty dark stuff like slavery and horrible experimentation but poor writing doesn't help this at all. Mediocre in all aspect but it's ok if you're just searching for anything to read. <<less

Running Away From The Hero! (Remake)

Friggin great novel. I highly recommend people reading this if you're looking for a comedic short, especially when you get to see a bunch of miserable students suffering under their great (devil) teacher.

I have to say, this is one of the most original novels I have read till date. The story is good in many sense but the best part of all is how dark and smart the MC really is. The story isn't your typical dark story where rape and murder is common, instead it gives POVs of different characters from the main cast (especially the MC) to showcase how he views the world around him. The manipulation the MC uses is actually sensible rather than the gibberish most novels spout... more>> that the MC is smart only due to knowledge he knows, not how he actually tackles the problem with the same information as any other person. Most novels also go into development on the MC just to make things more interesting but this novel has almost no development of the MC and only consists of his schemes and opinions that make the story 10 times better. Chances are if you are very religious you're gonna hate it due to how deluded your views are. <<less
