Nidoume no Jinsei wo Isekai de

This novel is incredibly boring, but for some reason I don't hate it. There is very little action going on and most of the time the focus is on daily life. I can't really say that there are relationship development as the focus is mainly on MC himself. Also there are some nice moment with regards to relationships. Also, I don't feel comedy part of this novel. There are few funny places, but most of the time it doesn't even prompt a smile

One thing that is irritating, but for some... more>> reason is not super hateful probably because it is super slow, is that MC originally is portrayed as smart, but as he goes on, he becomes dumber and overlook some obvious things or makes stupid assumptions. He also shows naive and careless attitude as novel progresses. Also it is not the degree of hate, it is just mild irritation as it does not seem to actually influence the story that much.

Spoiler

1) When assassins attacked his home and the fairy killed them all, he thinks that they all left by themselves after she asked them politely because she said "they all left". Even though right before that she told him there are assassins and no one will miss them when they are gone and locked him in the room while she was killing them. For real? Mentality of 5 year old from 94 year old.

2) When he increases his mana to ridiculous amount, and people are telling him "wtf, your amount of mana is 10 times normal magician should have", he still thinks that he does not have that much mana. He also thinks that he is average in strength even though he is OP and that everyone around him should be the same. If he just looks at people around him, he can realize what kind of freak he is, and yet he does not.

3) His sword. Not only he trades a higher level artifact sword for the lower level artifact katana, he does not even freaking suspect anything. When his katana starts to perform above normal sword, he does not investigate it at all and just chills out still thinking it is a normal sword.

[collapse]

There is also a ton of inner thoughts of everyone. There are chapters upon chapters of nothing but inner thoughts. All of the action is very short.

Overall the story is super boring, but can be a light read if you skip boring parts. Because this story does not stir up hate, I give it 4 stars since it did not produce a feeling of wanting to just stop reading, nevertheless it is very boring overall. <<less

The Mage Will Master Magic Efficiently In His Second Life

The world for this novel is not explained well and MC is a dubmass. The author fluctuates between having dense idiotic MC and smarter MC. At one point he treats the girls like his grandkids, and the next minute he treats them as proper women. This kind of thing happens all the time. Also, the arc with Grain was one of the dumbest there is... You know there is a strong guy who wants to kill you, what do you do? Go where he is waiting for you of course!

The... more>> novel generally is boring and the characters are pretty flat. The fight sequences are boring, the dialog is boring.. I do like the concept of this novel, but the writing is just not up to par <<less

Seiun wo Kakeru

It's boring. There is no plot, no goal, only very detailed and slow everyday life. It's not funny, the romance is small and very little ecci. None of the characters are developed, no one have any qualities to remember them by. There are many characters in this novel, yet I can barely remember their names or what they do. The amnesia part is stupid since it plays no role in this novel at all and MC gets his memories back very quickly. You would think that this type novel would... more>> have strong character interactions, and development, yet I can't even think about a single personality trait of MCs wife, except she has large boobs. <<less

This novel is just stupid, especially those chat sessions. The ridiculously detailed and dumb slice of life, nothing ever happening. Everything is stretched out so much, it takes him like three chapters to send an email to his sister the night after he promised to do so, and another two chapters for her to read it. To me this novel is not funny and is not interesting. Very boring novel with some cute moments with Alice. She is the only thing that is good about this otherwise ridiculously boring novel.

Main Character Hides His Strength

This novel is pretty dark, but can be interesting. However the setting is depressing and is difficult after a while. MC is a loner and just treats everyone as sh*t, arrogant and thinks he is always right. He doesn't want to get information available to him because he thinks it is unrelated to him, without even knowing what that information is. The pacing of the novel is actually good. Most things are not stretched out unnecessary, but the author sometimes screws up with that. The author also keeps things that... more>> can enhance the novel, world building and character development from the reader. For example he doesn't say clearly what happened, what kind of promise MC made, etc. Why keep it a secret? Also the fact that MC is too much of an asshole is a drawback sometimes. He could at least treat Bertelgia better. Overall not a bad novel, but the is a foreshadowing of a bad end for MC. The author can spin a good ending or a bad ending at this point. <<less

This novel is just empty in all regards. I am not sure why this is called ecci, I guess because of implications, but there is no ecci stuff there. Character interactions and development is non-existent and all characters aver extremely shallow. There are no relationship building or emotions. There is no tension. MC is just a horny dumb teen, who gets a bunch of "s*x slaves", but does not touch them. Instead he uses tentacle magic he developed to service the gals. However there are barely anything written other than... more>> the fact that it happened.

The story did not make me rage quit and was not so stupid that I wanted to quit half way throug, but I did skip a lot if stupid interactions between characters. The authors tries to have funny moments and use them as a relationship device I guess, but he miserably fails at that. All parts that suppose to be funny either make you want to punch MC for his idiocy or they are just stupid situations by themselves. This btw is one of the biggest problems with the story: MC does not have ambition (well, he wants to come back, but does not actively do anything that can help him do so). Stuff just happens as MC happen to be nearby.

So, bottom line this novel is super easy read that has nothing going for it. Bad characters, bad progress, bad romance, bad relationships. If you are 10 year old, you might like this.

Spoiler

Also the part with his sister is so stupid... You can guess what happens just from the already translated chapters.

Also, Twilight Reverie summarized everything else nicely. <<less

The story itself is ok and the setting is good too, but what ruins it for me is that almost every single character in this story is stupid. Honestly, the only reason the plot is progressing because of how stupid and stubborn everyone is. I also really hate this MC because he is super flat character and the most stupid of all. Really, this story can improve greatly by just making characters a little bit smarter.

I also hate how this story treats death. There are multiple deaths and resurrections. It's... more>> like it doesn't really matter what happens at all if you die once. Second time might be last, or not. <<less
