Standard reincarnated into another world genre, the MC becomes the strongest dragon in that world. Then soon enough he transformed into a human and goes into adventure with his harem. If only the author kept his dragon form I think the story can go into a little bit different route than the standard fare, too bad he choose to turn the MC into human which mean losing it's distinguishing feature.

Well though it's standard fare, it's not that bad. Unfortunately the only available translation initially was of poor quality so people... more>> rates low. Even the synopsis was translated wrongly, I fixed it up a little bit from Good thing it's picked up by better translator now.

Spoiler

A man without a name who was doing slaughter in Japan, accidentally died without permission one day. But when he awoke he was a dragon in a different world. The man thinks.
That, you do not have to work on this?

Both the demon king and the brave became the strongest creatures at a toothless level, so it was a man who decided to live on leisurely as he liked.

I Will Quit the Entourage of the Villainess

A reincarnation into otome game genre series with thin game setting (the protagonist didn't need to try hard breaking flags since aside from characters and world from the game, almost everything else is different). Which is not bad, it's cute but it's not providing anything new in the genre. It's mostly light hearted and only at some points containing a little bit of drama. The drama is not too heavy since it's usually resolved within a few chapters.

A supposed to be dark themed series but with ironically unfitting romantic comedy jokes. The tone is not properly directed, it feels like it was apocalyptic but everyone acts like they're having picnic. They're soldiers but they behaved like kindergartener that shown off their toys and beating each other, the one with the fanciest toy become the center of attraction.

The author is dumbing down all the characters in the series to make his plot works. He tried to make plots about conspiracy, unfortunately it fails to deliver. My only reaction... more>> when the author described his conspiracy plot was "what, that's it?" <<less

The Saint’s Magic Power is Omnipotent (WN)
September 11, 2016

A nice relaxing story, though the beginning reminds me of +a no tachiichi where the maiden chosen by her attractive look and the one who deemed not pretty enough being abandoned almost made me feel repulsed (in +a no tachiichi the MC is being abused extremely bad because she's thought to be an extra, with ALL of the characters are assholes even the supposed to be meh love interest, or even her friend from school), fortunately it was a false alarm.

Glad that the MC in this series is a girl... more>> who is having a rather reasonable personality, she can fend herself just fine and she knows full well how to speak her anger/protests when she's being treated badly (again in comparison with +a no tachiichi where the MC just accept the abuses and pretends being fine while the readers can read her inner monologue that she's actually very depressed.)

There are romance in this series, the sweet and innocent type. The interaction between the MC and the love interest is nice to see. As usual of shoujo genre, there are one or two guys so far who fall for her, luckily there's no annoying rivalry plot between the guys. They don't disturb each others attempt to approach the MC or planning some annoying schemes to put the rival at disadvantage like the one's often depicted in childish mellodramatic shoujo stories. They simply treated her nicely and let her choose to approach the one she prefer more. Yeah it lacks conflict, but superficial conflicts sometimes too annoying and grating to read so a rather laid back and down to earth romance depiction like this feels like a breath of fresh air.

So far the characters are nice guys with the exception of the first prince, though you don't need to worry since he only met the MC once in the very beginning of the series. So far he doesn't have any futher impact to the MC's life. <<less

The World of Otome Games is Tough For Mobs
October 14, 2018
Status: c82
Written by the author of sevens and dragon, it's pretty entertaining. A little bit different from his previous work though, that the MC is strong from the beginning instead of going from weak to strong as his usual style. While entertaining, I have to admit it's not as good as sevens, mainly due to him picking the strong from beginning MC to start the story. The quality of the heroine is also lower than his usual works. There's some politics but it's not quite prevalent here.

Even though it has flaws,... more>> it's still better than usual isekai series. <<less

It's a good romance even though the author plays a little bit too safe by adhering to commonly established working plot so people who reads a lot probably can guess the structure of the story easily. The story itself is rather light so it's decent for quick read and entertaining but on the other hand almost every conflict is resolved rather fast. Maybe it's like salad, easy to digest and fresh but for people who's hungry it's a little bit unsatisfying.

In a Different World with a Smartphone

Status: c400
It's one of the rare long running series that still managed to stay somewhat entertaining even to it's 400 chapters, a lot of long running series even though the beginning are interesting they're running out of gas and become boring after hundreds of chapters. Altough with the precaution of that it's not bad but it's also not groundbreaking; it stays in the line of interesting enough to read even though it's not a masterpiece. Maybe because even though the MC is OP and his power keeps increasing, the obstacle is... more>> also increasing in proportion with the MC's growth too. The author is smart enough in rising the scale of the world in the series in keeping it somewhat interesting.

What helps keeping it interesting is it's having a rather clear goal troughout the series, compared to other WNs that lost the sense of goal along the way. For some time the MC needs to collect a series of thing, another time there's a clear set of enemy to defeat. Though it's true that it's somewhat simplistic but it's reassuring that the MC have somekind of purpose to achieve.

From half point from the series there's a minor genre shift into something else, but it's a good thing. For those who are curious about the genre shift:
Spoiler

it's introducing mecha elements in the series to defeat new kind of enemies

A cute story with slight misunderstanding comedy undertone, despite it's early part seems a little bit heavy it's actually a lighthearted shoujo series. It's not a really serious series, don't expect epic plot without a little bit bump here and there and expecting it as different genre (for example some scenes which meant to be taken as comedic and trivial scene taken in a serious manner). Don't judge way too early and give it a try at least 10 chapters before deciding it's good or not.

Hon Issatsu de Kototariru Isekai Rurō Monogatari
November 10, 2016
Status: v6
I remember starting reading this because attracted from the cover illustration. This is an isekai series with somewhat ruthless battle maniac MC, actively seeking battles and often provoking for it. His power is "quoting" words from any books he have read before and materialize them into real world, so you get modern weapons such as revolver, machine guns, assault rifle, grenade etc. Besides quoting material items he can also quoting concepts, which rather similar to Konjiki no Wordmasters skill.

The MC is quite different from the usual meek MCs, he's decisive,... more>> ruthless and thrill seeking. Often times he's the one stirring troubles so he can fight. He's a tsundere guy, he acts malicious and having poisonous tongue but in the end he will lend his hand to people who asked for his help. If I remember right his trademark is asking what is the merit of him helping them first, though later he will help with trivial compensations. His skill is OP so he's kind of rarely getting in a real pinch.

Since the MC is battle maniac, most of the story arc is focused on him looking for stronger enemies to fight. He also gained some allies in the process. It's just there's no romance/harem in this series since it's taking most of it's time in fighting/conflicts.

Well, if you can past trough the MC's OP skills in bringing modern weaponry and vehichles into fantasy world it's quite entertaining to read. It's just sometimes it will feel tedious because the MC is constantly diving head first into conflicts so it's rather lacking a breather. <<less

The MC is changing personality like chameleon, his personality changes whimsically according to what kind of scenes the author wanted to depict at the time the chapter was written. If for one chapter/arc he's depicted as passionately helping people, then expect in a few chapter/arc later when he faced similar situation he will become lazy and uncaring person. It happens a lot of time so you won't get a good grasp of the MC's character since it's all over the place.

The series started as mindless slice of life without any... more>> goal with some actions interspersed, but then in the middle of it the author started to pull random plot twists without any foreshadowing at all. After that it becomes a barrage of random plots which comes out of nowhere that will make you question which direction the author actually wanted to reach.

In conclusion: the author just do whatever he thinks cool at that time without planning ahead, so sometimes random plots just abruptly comes up until the end of the story... The saving grace of this series is that it's pretty short. <<less

The author made a great blunder by writing almost 30 chapters of complete mechanical RPG grinding without interesting/unique inner monologues. What I meant by complete is literally every single paragraph in those 30 chapters are spent into mundane and repetitive grindings. The MC is completely dry and absent of personality and we can easily replace it with a bot...

The world is similar with Hunter x Hunter, modern era but people have supernatural powers and there are monsters roaming around the world. The MC is admiring the "good guys=JSDF (similar with Hunter) " but due to unfortunate events he is falling into the "bad guys=Anonymous (similar with Gen'ei Ryodan) " side, from there on it's downward spiral of madness.

The author is pretty good at building up tension, every arc is literally dancing around deaths. The author is very good at making people feels everything can go wrong, it can... more>> induce anxiety reading the chapters since there's no plot armor in this series.

Even though it may feels episodic in the beginning but actually there's a continuous plot, every arc is connected progressively. The tension and stake at hand also gradually increases as the story progressing toward the end. <<less

The translation is very good, easy to read and there's little to no mistake at all. The problem is the story itself, it's mediocre. The world is written solely for the MC: all plot important characters around him are girls and every female character mentioned in the story will fall for him. The setting itself is not written properly, we don't know how the world outside of the bar looks like, and even when the author shown them it's very shallow and lazy. The plot is episodic, with the format... more>> of "Girls who will fall for the MC this episode"! The forced denseness from the MC is grating to read, he's also a failure as a guild master (a weak girl being overconfident wanted to defeat dragon, instead of showing her how reality works, he buffed her and provided her with a cheat guide. Good job stunting someone's growth MC, though since the world is being made for the MC, ofcourse everything went well in the end) <<less

Don’t Read This Novel

Status: --
I was almost put off with the baity title/lame image title and cocky description and thinking that this is an amateurishly web novel trying to gather attention, but I was wrong, this is pretty good. It feels like this was written by a professional, the story is engaging and flowing smoothly. The main character have a quite distinct personality, that you might have irritated with him IRL, but it's quite effective for the story. The horror in this novel is the creepy mysterious type, it's not overwhelmingly scary but it... more>> made you feels that something is not right. There's also some local Malaysian flavour in it, but it's not intrusive to the storyline.

TLDR: don't be tricked by the 1 stars and baity title, it's a well written horror novel. <<less

My Sister Told Me to Give Up My Fiancé
May 26, 2019
Status: c89
This series is a disappointing mess, well it's showing signs of bad story telling from the get go though. By the way, living with the dragon? That synopsis is a blatant lie.

The author made characters one dimentionally, bad guy will acts evil without actual reason. Good guys are symphatethic towards the MC but all of them are terribly incompetent despite their stated skills or status. The MC herself is a dense white lotus rarely found in Japanese series, she is so naive that she even protected the people... more>> who tortured her out of compassion. The male lead is abruptly and completely gone out of the picture after a certain event in the novel, he's a damned dragon which is an existance close to be a god but because the author wanted to show the MC struggling, she written him out for more than 50 chapters. The politicking is plain boring and dumb, there's no intelligent political battle. Unfortunately for 50 chapters while the male lead is gone, it's all about incompetently written politics.

The male lead is one of the worst part of the stories, he's being depicted as one of the greatest being in that world and have been living for thousands of years but he have a toddler level of intelligence and mental capacity. He can't distinguish one human and another because for him human looks like insects, they're so insignificant to him but somehow he can easily fall in love with the MC with childish reasons. After that he tried to impress her by giving her gifts which he thinks it's awesome for her while it's actually not (its a complete burden) and she have told him she doesn't need it at all; but he gave her the gift anyway. The best part is, right after giving the burden (oops I mean present) to the MC, he goes out for something trivial then never heard again for the rest of the story right until the last moment it all ends. The conflict of the story actually produced by him because if he's wise enough to live happily with the MC without doing extremely stupid things which sugarcoated as 'doting love interest', there won't be stupid and prolonged melodrama here. Also, sending your soon-to-be-bride into the den of wolf by herself while you're doing nothing in the background, how much of an idiot are you?

Lastly, with all that build up setting the MC into endless struggles, the conclusion from the conficts are extremely underwhelming and seems like being brushed over. Imagine your teacher gives you nonsensical assigments, you're preserving only because she tempted you with rewards, but when you finished the assignments she just dangle the rewards in front of you then keep it herself while giving you another assigment. The worst part? She never rewards you with anything; that's how you will feel after you're reading up to the latest chapter like me lol. <<less

The title is a complete sham, it's neither focusing on the otome game nor the magic (at least for 100 chapters from the raw) . They're just there existing in the background since the MC is too easily distracted by anything else around her.

The initial introduction arc is quite decent, but after that it's mediocre. The story stalled for more than 80 chapters on uninspiring slice of life with little progression on the main story. There's some OPness show off from the MC, but it's nothing new for this kind... more>> of genre. If you're a jaded reader who have been reading tons of series then you'll see lots of tropes you've seen from other series being done in a checklist manner here, from the too smart for her age trope, high amount of mana going berserk trope, 'inventing' cooking recipee trope etc.

The author have a severe case of derailing her chapters that she even admitted to the reader that she's been writing things all over the place for dozens of chapters. It seems that it will finally got into the actual premise around chapter 100 right where I stopped reading, at that point my patience have runs out of the prospect of her derailing her story again out of habit.

TLDR:

Interesting first introduction arc, poor follow up. Most likely will feel very predictable for jaded reader of the genre. A lot of filler, very slow progression, and yes there is cooking/food segment. Might be an ok read for someone who haven't read too much otome novels. <<less

A chuuni trying to write tragedy series, which fails miserably. The characters are walking tropes with a forced tragic background on them. Try to imagine chuuni with angst and slip in perverted antics and you will got the MC on this series.

Also all the tragedies are resolved way too conveniently, it's basically a rom-com fairy tale trying to disguise itself as tragedy story. It's halfbaked, which directly causing the series lacking in direction. It feels the author was not sure on whether trying to be tragic, funny, or romantic.

Sword of the Philosopher

Status: c88
Wasted potential, the concept of the game itself is decent and probably fun to play but the story in which the MC reincarnated into the game as a mob character is executed in a very bad way. The game is a sandbox/open-world RPG which the player can choose between 5 characters with different storyline in the same world and recruiting allies characters to defeat the demon lord, the concept feels like skyrim with Japanese flavour which is interesting.

Unfortunately it seems the author just write a lot of different branch... more>> of story but all of them are shallow, and the MC is just jumping between these branch stories very randomly without giving them enough time to establish some sort of emotional response to the reader. The author just keep recycling the formula of: [finding characters from the game ---> save them from predicament ---> going into some sort of dungeon once ---> break apart] every. single. arc. The author is extremely mechanical on the story progression that you will feel it's written by an AI instead of human with emotions.

There's also problem with the tension, it's flat. We know the party the MC is in won't be in problem at all, but we are forced to read the farce of making them seemingly a fierce fight. We don't get the struggling feeling but we also don't get any dose of awesomeness, it's a lose-lose for both type of people who want to read tense battle series or those who want OPness.

The characters are written properly in their RPG roles, but not in their personalities. The author is describing a believable character roles in the battle RPG, from their weapon of choices, growth rate from early to after middle of the game, which statuses they excell at, their skills etc. BUT. Their personality are flat! The author just write the same type of bland characters and giving them different names lol. And 5 out of 6 from them are forgetable. Even the suppossed to be heroine don't have single personality other than following every single order from the MC lol, she's not charismatic nor cute nor hot-blooded... She's nothing... Even out from all harem I've read she's probably the most bland of all... <<less

Beginning is not too good since it's depicting somewhat vulgar nature of bandits which seen by the MC, but if you can go past that it's a good comedy based series. The dungeon maintaining part is fun in a way that it's not taking itself too seriously and rather laid back, MC's strategies is in the "playful troll" category which is fun to see, with multiple side characters adding the hilariousity of the dungeon's surroundings. It makes the world looks lively, I mean there's dangerous monsters etc but they're still... more>> having fun. Up until the latest chapter in raws it's still fun, it keeps the laid back nature. <<less

It's an action series that the plot is moving forward with it's romance. Over the course of the series the MC is being bullied and wronged almost all the times, that is until girls somehow flocking over him and becomes his companion. It seems it will become a harem series, but the MC denies any possibility of romance with these girls since he loves only one girl.

The thing is, the MC is as dense as Ichika from Infinite Stratos and he's prone to misunderstanding that could be easily solved... more>> if only he asked like a man (the author is a girl so sometimes it feels the MC acts with female mindset...) The netorare vibes comes from him letting the girl he loves goes with another guy just because he's fidgeting like a girl and the guy who tried to steal the girl acts very sh*tty that you want to punch him but the MC takes no actions.

If you don't like a prolonged romantic misunderstanding that maybe will only solved at the end of the series this will be hard to read as the series goes. The misunderstandings will stay there and the MC won't take actions to deal with it. <<less
