I quite enjoyed this at the beginning, but I can't read any further. SunsetChaos said in their review "... just a happy and fun childhood. It's exactly as it's described, so no one should be complaining." but I can't emphasise just how wrong this claim is. The MC is treated like dirt, like a slave by his "older" sister. The MC has been conditioned, it feels like I'm reading about a victim of abuse. Despite being reincarnated, thus mentally older, and way stronger than her thanks to his magic, he... more>> never stands up for himself and is terrified of his sister, yet the author keeps expecting us to believe this is normal and harmonious family life?

It's just disturbing, and aggravating. A slow, happy, cute slice-of-life story doesn't mean the MC has to be a spineless sack of s**t who is routinely abused by his family. Is it really so much to ask for an MC to be neither pathetic nor a "badass" self-insert fantasy? <<less

Nothing wrong with the TL, but this story is bullsh*t. It started out kind of fun, but recently it's just been Will talking about how all the men around him are so beautiful and then his apparent shame at cross-dressing. The reason for his cross-dressing is seriously weak, and if he really didn't want to do it then he wouldn't do it. The author is just forcing out "shame" instead of any kind of plot advancement or any effort in making actual comedy that fits the characters and story. Such... more>> a disappointment, and a lot of time wasted reading this far. <<less

The Dungeon Struggle of an Earth Dragon!

How is this 4/5 at the moment? It's ridiculous. Don't waste your time.

The MC falls asleep normally after work, wakes up as a dragon in a strange place, and in the next chapter he's like "oh well I was getting tired of my job anyway". At one point he sees a giant bird fighting against a dragon in the sky and in a later chapter climbs a rock to look at a birds' nest where he finds a bunch of metre-tall newly hatched chicks, then looks at the unhatched eggs... more>> and describes them as "shockingly" being larger than Ostrich eggs... OF COURSE THEY ARE IF THE BIRDS ARE THAT SIZE!!

It's also full of sentences made of less than 5 or 6 words, and some paragraphs are just a handful of these tiny sentences thrown together. The opening paragraph of chapter 4 is literally just:

Spoiler

What's over here.
Let's go over there.
I tried walking for a while, but there's nothing here.

The TL itself is probably good, but the novel is so shockingly bad I can't understand why Sub29 are still working on it. <<less
