Some people have completely awful taste... Such people read like Zhan Long, ATG, Shuras Wrath, Close combat mage... Story's without a story, with poor writing, over used tropes and are rehashed action and awful pacing. If you're such a person this is not for you. aka WARNING there is an actual story to be found here

Critically speaking the speed here is more or less perfect but could even be better slowed down a bit more to show certain characters more. All the characters here are well done and fleshed out.... more>> The story is solid and not utterly aimless. Girls don't want to have s*x with the MC just cause he is in the same room. The MC is a believable realistic character not eager to show that pure force is always the answer. This shows the character has a mind and is aware of ramifications... a concept not existing in other works and sadly many readers. He does not seek attention like an addict seeks drugs. Such things only improve the story and the world, as well as keep needless tropes away. The VR thing is barely emphasized outside passing comments, this makes it feel more akin to a real fantasy.

This story is a perfect 5/5 10/10 in quality, grammar/translation, pacing, depth. There could be a bit more information about the world at large for those interested. Translators have a great job translating this and keeping at it. <<less

Quite similar to Gate but also quite different and the way it's setup will be special in it's own way. It is an extreme shame that garbage bags full of crap cliches are being translated while this gathers dust. There is only a teaser and has only been a teaser for quite a while... so not enough material for a solid review. The story has great potential depending on how it works out.

This series is published in Japan by AlphaPolis the same publisher of Gate, The New Gate, Tsuki ga... more>> Michibiku Isekai Douchuu, Spirit Migration and several other works worthy of note. <<less

Even though it's on the short side this story so far is high above most garbage here. The short chapters elude to greater things in short summary that will hopefully play out in later chapter

-the MC looking at the long term
-difference of human vs demon rule

No game nonsense, silly dues ex machina, evolution crap or numbers. The issue with reincarnation is barely emphasized. The MC has balls and is by no means the strongest.

Can't really say much more as not enough is out.

A terribly mediocre story at best. The entire thing that a known relation would get to another world first and summon a person they like is nifty but not well used here. Sadly alas the relation is completely shat on by turning into a reason for there to be a pretty voluptuous girl to like the MC from day one cliche.

The story is one of those light little happens in way of action or drama. Sadly when something happens it’s kinda broken by exposition. The MC is also so F*CKING... more>> not special or outside in anyway to cause one to recall him... aka he is generic enough for people to related unless you’re like me and can’t relate at all because you have hobbies and interests... things he lacks. Not many chapters out but the story gives of the feeling that it will never have much in way of consequences. <<less

Really sh*tty generic power trip fantasy. Nothing of note to point out or make mention of... read another power trip and you've read this one too without actually reading it. Any potential is thrown out in first few chapters. The "gm" part is just a really really sh*tty excuse for all his power and deus ex machina. GM being nothing more then a terrible plot device it's clearly not going to be used in any interesting fashion. He has the ability to toggle over 9000 on or off, some other... more>> convenient (to absurd extreme) to it pains me to use the word, "ability" and that's literally the extent of the entire GM thing. Pacing and chapter length show, that having room for any depth to the story is as likely as me winning the biggest lottery. <<less

Unlike most stories let alone unlike most chinese stories that are worth less then used toilet tissue paper this story is damned glorious. The MC is not some bullsh*t half wit dumber then a retarded child who powers through the story with nonsensical idealism/hypocrisy/plotholes while getting raped in the bum hole hard with the silver platter of deus ex machina. Characters have character and are consistent in their personalities. A story exists. The world does not break itself for sake of moving the plot forward and stays consistent. The MC... more>> is not some overpowered fcktwat. Everything is plausible and so much more. Writing is not poor either. Quite literally everything MC does is possible and thusly plausible. MC never does anything that is beyond his means to do. If he can't do it he gets someone to do it.

Very extremely rarely am I so hard pressed to not be able to find faults or stuff to call out. This story is worth reading to those who possess any standards or taste for a good story.

EDIT Very few stories can ever get past 500 chapters and still feel like there is room for another 1000. No fluff, terribly asinine digressions or large random info dumps are to be found in RTW. It feels like the author is a good follower of the chekhov's gun principle. <<less

I could literally go on all day about this but won’t bother. If your into disgusting cliche garbage stories that if printed are only good for toilet paper, and worse yet if those garbage stories are harem....... this is not for you.

This at long last has a translator who will shine and enlighten those who can read or only read english with the glory that is Gate.

Is sci fi fantasy, slice of life, political, realistically modern outlook of.... of course Japan encountering a gate to another realm... what would be... more>> less then 2 vols (if it even got to two) if the stories premise occurred in USA/China/Russia or the Korean demilitarized zone.....

WARNING: this story contains an actual plot, sh*t actually happens, characters are not as deep as a puddle on a convex surface, main character is not half assedly gay, story is realistic and bleak at times not all freaking rainbows and disney sing alongs. Also for some this is important... there are no, I repeat no as in none extremely needless/pointless/digressive depictions of tits and ass every 1-4 chapters. Also inside gate is an over 5 out 5 story.

If your looking for and original and great story... read this.

Side note there is none of that JSDF is super awesome bullsh*t and that the author thinks country X is X nonsense that some people say. The JSDF is just there and the characters are in it. Countries are shown sadly... quite realistically. <<less

Pretty sad most of the other reviews are from morons. SAO is a very solid read infinitely better then pretty much any other garbage that came after. SAO alongside. Hack are pretty much still hands down the best VR related novels. Only a paltry few non official fictions can even closely compare. Completely different from what is now known as "litRPG" genre. In SAO things actually happen, characters have character, there is a story, Kirito is not a moron protag, no recycled battle bs, no OP nonsense, actual tension, no... more>> number spam, and the novel shows plausible situations. Also a plus are realistic uses and reactions of technology by people. The real world makes an appearance unlike in some other novels the real world is like a small cameo reference at best.

Is SAO the best novel not really. Does SAO have faults absolutely but even then sadly alas not much comes even close in regards to a story that goes around the concept of VR and way later down the line AR.

I very much recall years ago before the anime came out that it was pretty much totally unknown. Just like AoT it only became acknowledged of existing after the anime came out. <<less

Close Combat Mage
November 30, 2015

The description of the story is stupidly small and simple. Being a Chinese martial art genre you’d expect a story where a bullied or looked down on the weakest kind of mage, fights his weaknesses, overcomes challenges and some other bullsh*t... Rises up and kicks some ass.... no nope nada no way iee.

The story has a decent start I’ll give it that but quickly loses focus (w/e it was) and has these story breaking expositions (a lot of them) where sometimes the entire chapter seems like an exposition. Exposition... more>> I’d bet is not why you the reader has come here for.
The nitty gritty

There is a kid not even 15, not even 13 yet hell even younger and can do thing 100% illogical things for children of that age group, even autistic ones included. Politically savvy and giving LIFE ADVICE to people 5 times his age... please know limits but no that is barely tickling this “story.” At a certain point he acquires a mansion, becomes essentially a millionaire, friends with the royal family and officially the most powerful student at school... does it stop oh no... male water mages are rare... I don’t even need to say more on that. Uses funds to buy stupidly overpowered gear to become even more over powered and hell he has not even hit puberty. Mentions skills vs relying on gear... Several chapters later about them skills and gear yeah baby! *cough double standards* His balls have not even dropped but when they do... he will already have conquered the world at the rate the story is going. The escalation from normal to super unrealistic stakes gives DBZ a run for its money. You want a real lousy story here it is.

The most realistic and extremely plausible events in the story is
1 how desperate people would be to not look ugly and be skinny without doing anything you need to do for such things eg. getting off your ass, not eating like a cow, exercise
2 s*xual curiosity between children. Two obvious as hell parts of his budding harem, classmates play with his wee wee. Some stupid people might say otherwise about matters of s*xual curiosity but same stupid people don’t realize that there is no internet and porno mags in the stories world. Oddly enough extreme double standards come to play when some people are put off by those chapters instead of violence but hey screw logic.

Simple story, weak to strong and poor to rich extremely fast. Little character development. Not a girl, rich or close relation? No f**ks... none. MC doesn’t care too busy getting richer/more powerful. Little direction... Lots of he is getting more op this is why, this is that for............ reasons plus....... with.....
And more op and more op with NO physical fights (beatdowns aside) and some half assed battles cause no one else is this op. That’s it. <<less

I recall reading this at some point a while back and now found it here. The story can be funny with its 2 main punchlines, commoner this commoner that and he is a gay fag who really likes muscle bros.... but he does not. Outside the humorous notes it’s just another cut and paste slapped together nonsensical bullsh*t of a guy being surrounded by girls. I dropped it a while back as I just couldn’t stop feeling the deju vu of having read it before.

You like meh stories where a... more>> guy is surrounded by girls... sigh... in a school........ yeah... this story is the hash that you can take to your pipe to smoke. Also on another note forceful castration is very much illegal in... well f**king everywhere, all countries with laws against assault. This story is a two for the humor mainly.

PS manga is better, in manga one can witness hakua in her full f**king damned kawaii glory... she's unaware that she is embodiment of moe <<less

Rather... meh.

Appearances- nothing really to go by example: "Firstly, the oldest girl, the daughter of my oldest sister, Akira-chan. A lively and upfront, and yet the peacemaker for everyone, an oneechan-type of girl. " tall? short? fat? breast size? age? hair color?
romance- none
writing- is short

First chapter is god awful as there is no basis for him being liked at all. Holds his niece's hand bam she loves him. No preamble, no history to go by, no back story. Yandere needs a reason to be yan and dere...... more>> there is no reason. This spoils the story before it even begins. Chapter two she is already showing him her genitals.... like really? Ham fisted writing at best :/ <<less

2/5
edit: 0/5 come back to skim and sh*t even more silly story.... well I think the story drowned and sank to the bottom forever gone now just dead

4.5/10
edit: 2/10

I’ve read all translated chapters to this point and it’s f*cking damned saddening to again and f*cking again! See something with potential turn into garbage. The MC if you can put up with him is a flagrant dumbass but he is sly and grind happy. This makes for some funny moments at first but quickly leaves when he becomes a... more>> flagrant arrogant asshole instead. The story begins meh at best but then picks up into something interesting, but after a hundred something turns to sh*t.

I don’t f*cking get this chinese f*ggottry with the MC turning into something that deserves death... MC becomes a even more arrogant shameless asshole. The story at first had a direction but BAM boom out of NOWHERE!! Like a wild pokemon encounter look it’s a villain here! why? F*ck you I ain’t gonna tell you why here is a thin vague excuse at best instead... Suddenly new names for villian a b c d e f etc. and fights why cause.. well f*ck... just cause... Villains are incredibly forgettable without substance outside they’re awesome in X way but yue yang is awesome-ER! Suddenly love without proper motions for it. The story starts to masturbate itself to the glory and awesomeness of the MC without any basis outside he is awesome. Originally I quite liked the story and wanted to see how the revenge thing would turn out and read it... he just goes on a killing spree and some other violence... moral of this story is violence is always the answer.

After the meet up with clan HQ it turns very boring. Found myself skimming a lot as it just sadly seemingly starting running to the cut and paste xianxia/wuxia story where MC is super duper awesome and woman are nothing but accessories that add to the awesomeness of the MC that becomes more and more boring/shallow. Not there yet but will be there soon enough.

PS also mentioning of blah rank blah level blah blah sub rank/level which don’t really mean sh*t as usual in such stories

PPS If you non existent taste buds that are dead to the world and love repetitive bland trashy novels with no direction like MGA/ATG this story will be great for you

Edit add on: Another thing that make the character literally the worst scum in this novel is others villain number X just kill.... the MC has flagrant rapist and creeper tendencies. Such behavior realistically/plausibly by the women characters in the novel who are all smarter then the MC would NEVER go with such a person. No women would willingly be attracted or hang out with someone who s*xually harasses them and lies all the time no matter the where, what or when. This entire thing with the BS harem nonsense is more unrealistic then the entire spirit and magic stuff. <<less

Read all the chapters out at the moment and I totally concur with nixxara... it’s boring. As awesome and as much of a change of pace it would be to see a male in an otome game... this... it... has no draw, no wit... no real plan or nothing.

Also it’s literally impossible more so for a child then an adult to change drastically overnight without mental disorders, intense traumas or near death situations. But yeah this... *shrugs* it’s meh. Nothing stands out or it interesting enough to even remember... more>> the story for several days. It not bad per say... just... boring...

This is something for when bored. At the start it seems... MEH enough with some cliches here and there and how easily being a POS asshole comes to the MC. The entire spirit magic thing one might think would add promise to the story, being something of a good foundation for elaboration upon... it’s not and to what’s translated up to now, it’s not sh*t to this story and seems forgotten practically. It sorta implies or foreshadows some possible argument or altercation with people... that doesn’t happen. Some comedy can... more>> be found with the unicorns and that’s pretty much the best part to this story. Nothing really else just a fast turn into the pure garbage domain of stories with stupid slave harem sh*t. It has a hot spring part could you get anymore f**king cliche.

Characters are barely (if even) built on in anyway outside their comments. Course there is also the misogynist undertone that builds up, the typical sh*t in harems, as well as where for lack of reasons outside oh he save me I love him bullsh*t. Girls come off as pathetic (particularly angela who can surprisingly at least wipe her own ass without him). Sure she was in a bad situation yada yada and now treated way better..... but her annoying weak mental state is only there for her to like the MC more and present a use for his strength to show off saving her as the leading role for damsel in distress. Could be more then inane blushes and cheek kisses and I don't mean s*xually... there could be something made from that.... but will never happen, ever. Deep is not what one should expect from puddles. This story by no means has sinkhole hidden in that puddle... it is nothing more then just a shallow puddle of a story.

Sadly cant think of anything positive really to say about this. Sure it could be worse like way worse (eg. close combat mage looking at you) but the story is 1.5 at best. Nothing new, no good draw, bunch of cliches. Story is just meh with a selfish ass of an MC who is not deep enough in anyway to overcome that being a loser d*ck, into... well an interesting character. Not d*ckish enough to despise him and hope the story ends quickly with his death either. Meh..... <<less

A cat takes over a demon cat elsewhere in another world. Eventually meets someone who looks similar to her old owner. This story is slow but worth a read. There are plenty of humorous moments that 100% of the time come Maio being stupid/naïve/ignorant/stupid. Can’t say much on the story as there aren’t any particular heavy story moments one has to know or should be referenced. The synopsis covers what to expect fairly well. Shifu is like an overprotective father is what most would use as reference. Simply he is... more>> a not yet boyfriend who has his claim to an airhead and does his best to teach her about whatever lessons can stick and do his best to keep others interested in his airhead away. All this while expressing his love by caring and hoping for the concept of love to stick to her past handsome s*xy male cat ideal bit. Her realizing she is not just a cat but more than that, a demon cat is something she will eventually come to terms with.
There is not enough of such sweet simple stories without cliché garbage, drama and extreme predictable plot events. <<less

No where as good as people make it out to be. It reads quite dryly and lack of detail if any to who looks like what aside from a name. Like a boring history book. The chauvinism typical in many chinese works is also fairly prevalent here. There is no draw or reason to give a f**k about anyone really. Some parts that could possibly be interesting are totally skipped

eg. He was going over there bam he arrived! Or some objective he is going to____ he did it

Also some parts... more>> are just total bullsh*t in regards to his blind luck. I haven't even gotten fair and there are parts where it's 10% his wits 90% pure blind luck. <<less

Terribly meh! Not going to go into detail but just the premise alone should not have been dragged out to several volumes. Also the sister brother interactions are cringy after a while as they should stfu and get done with it. Characters are on the bland side. Thing that bugs me is how fluffy the story seems more like it's trying to be then it actually is. Hikkimori thing is more for a set up for being a lame pun then anything it feels like. Overall it's not bad but... more>> not great at all in any way. Feels like another lame romcom

This a an alright story and a good read for the wait for updates to better stories. This does not have jack sh*t for any deep characters, great plot or anything else really. Story is quite predictable and cliche here and there. The synopsis pretty much is the entire story in a nut shell. He is OP to just being the very point of silly and not entirely aware of it which is the leading punchline to most of the humor.

The point where it is at and progress of the... more>> story is good with so far. No sign of some bullsh*t coming out of nowhere, popping out suddenly and getting everything absurd like some other stories. Simple, light hearted, and comical in a nutshell. <<less

Very light hearted simple story with an awfully unreasonably realistic and plausible character instead of some trash high/middle school MC that should go choke on a purple dildo to death.
Entire premise is he just does whatever his whimsy, none of that I gotta be the very best, read all the forums, catch em all, numbers!! numbers!! stats!!..... nah just I feel like doing this and Im gonna do it at my on pace. No life or death moments just hey gonna give archery a try... does archery.
Good premise... more>> but can be kinda meh here and there but this is after all a slice of life genre <<less
