The Elf Is a Freeloader

Why is this novel recommended on so many novel's pages?? How can a story with only 16 short chapters translated deserve so many recommendations across such a wide range of novels??

After reading the available chapters, I can only guess someone is going out of their way to get this novel recommended on as many other novels as possible just for kicks.

... Not that the story is bad or anything, there just isn't much substance to it as of now. Hard to know whether the story is decent or not when... more>> we've barely met the characters. <<less

Return of the Former Hero

To (most of) the people leaving negative reviews: This novel is tagged as "Action Adventure Comedy Ecchi Fantasy Harem Mature Romance Shounen." Rating the novel poorly because you don't like Mature Ecchi Harem Romance Comedies with Shounen Action Fantasy Adventures is like rating a western movie poorly because you don't like cowboys. What did you expect to find when you started reading a novel with those tags?

As far as Mature Ecchi Harem Romance Comedies with Shounen Action Fantasy Adventures go, this one is pretty good. The MC spends most of... more>> the time thinking with the wrong head, but the story does a decent job of explaining why. He paid his dues, and now he just wants to have fun, although he doesn't mind crushing whatever gets in the way of his fun. And he's nice enough to give the new Hero some pointers along the way.


The impression I got is that he was sent home by whoever summoned him in the first place, because political factions were about to fight over how to use him. He didn't fight back, because why bother? He already knew how to go back, or so he thought, and by then he'd worked up a wish list of things he wanted from Earth.

Other World’s Monster Breeder

A mix of Konosuba/Pokemon/Slave Harem in the Labyrinth of the Other World. Generically enjoyable, but nothing special.

As of chapter 43, nothing deserving the R-18 tag has occurred or even been implied to occur behind the scenes. An R-15 tag would be more appropriate, with

a horny MC who is unwilling to use his powers of enslavement to force any of the women to service him and unable to respond to the vampire maid who has made it clear she's perfectly willing.

I Never Run Out of Mana

It's a good story set in an interesting world, with relatively short chapters and a wonderful translator who consistently releases one chapter a week...

Honestly, I wish I had left it in my "Wait until completely translated" list, because with 141 chapters left, the weekly release rate means the translation will be finished the end of July 2021, assuming no holidays, breaks, disappearances, or drops.

I do like the story though. I need to try reading it monthly or something, so I'm not always left hanging right as things get interesting.
