I Was a Sword When I Reincarnated (WN)

The story has an unique setting, but the plot itself doesn't particularly deviate from the standard "isekai MC becomes an adventurer and does stuff", the worldbuilding is pretty good, and even though the story isn't anything special at least it's well told.

The Sword (MC) has more or less the personality of the average japanese protagonist, the type that acts a bit like an idiot (may or may not result annoying), but at least he's not a pushover. Not particularly deep though.

The wielder (other MC basically) on the other hand is... more>> unique, she's very laconic and has a goal which isn't a generic revenge plot or a "I wanna be the strongest". That said she also doesn't have a very deep personality and, outside her quirk of being laconic, she is pretty much your average musclehead MC. Also she could very well be male and other than her appearance, and maybe the reaction of the other character, nothing would change.

The side characters are generally intresting and not basic cliché one (the important ones at least), but don't expect them to be deeply characterized either.

Translation is good.

Overall it's an above average novel, but it's not so good that I'd recommend it to someone that isn't intrested in the genre (generic but well told story, unique but shallow characters). <<less

The setting is a pretty basic isekai, the wordbuilding and the characters are unique, but the story itself isn't really amazing and is better if read in a lighthearted fashion.

That said, it stands out because it doesn't fall in to the OP MC trope and the story manages to remain engaging.

The only thing worth criticizing imo is the way the characters act and react, don't expect realistic personalities/ways of thinking; it's not to the point of being so bad it's annoying to read though, as long as you don't take... more>> it too seriously.

The translation is better now that it was picked up by a new translator. <<less

This story is definitely worth reading.

It's short, and for the most part it kinda follows some classic Japanese novel tropes (except for the protagonist I guess), so it may not seem very noteworthy, even then, all of the character are very vivid in their description, and are memorable in their own way.

The protagonist in particular shows some nice growth.

The climax of the novel is what really makes it shine though; I don't get emotional easily, when it happens it's really only me getting a bit teary-eyed, but the last few... more>> chapters of this novels really make me sob like a child for the entire duration of them, it seems unlikely to get so attached to a character after only 7 chapters, but this story made me to.
The final chapter made me feel so hard, and the epilogue made me so happy, the tears of sadness became tears of happiness.

A couple of years passed after I read this, but on summers I get feels when I hear cicadas. <<less

Looks like a cute and fluffy story.

Although it's early to judge, the writing and the characters look like they might have something more than the usual cliché japanese webnovel feeling.

The translation is good as well.

I'll be looking forward to this.

Pretty standard slice of life isekai in terms of world building and characters, the writing itself is above average and the translation is good.

Recommended if you're looking for something of this genre, but it's nothing particularly amazing

Great oneshot, a clear cut above the average novel in terms of plot and writing. Unlike some oneshots it doesn't leave you wanting for more - in a good way.

Definitely worth a read since it's not long.

A novel that is completely unoriginal and doesn't stand out in any way.

Everything is cliché, which wouldn't even be too bad if it was well written or the characters were well characterised, since tropes becomes cliché when they are good tropes. But no, the writing is exactly what you'd expect by your average web novel: descriptions, word building, characters, everything is shallow and generic.

There's nothing praiseworthy about the novel itself, the translation is good though, so if you really absolutely love the OP MC harem isekai genre, have nothing to... more>> do with your time, and already read every other novel of this type them you could give this a go, since while incredibly bland it's still not unreadably bad. <<less
