This is an interesting light novel. The female lead is proactive about getting what she wants, the male lead is not interested in a harem or fulfilling s*xual fantasies, and it has managed to avoid many isekai tropes that would drive readers away.

The novel is a 4-star, but I give 5 to boost the overall rating a little.

My only problem is the translator. The work overall has no glaring grammatical problems, but the speed and accessibility of the translation is a serious issue. The translator has chronic health problems (for... more>> which I have great sympathy), but seems to require a certain amount of donations before he/she "recovers" and gets back to work. Chapters are also locked behind Patreon (not real issue if the rest of us got some on a regular basis). I have nothing against asking for donations, but the author should be the only one paid to "write."

To the translator: I hope you recover quickly. If you do not, please find someone else to take over this project. Nobody should need to pay to read this in English (unless Yen Press gets their hands on it). <<less

Good novel, but one of the biggest detractions of this novel is the poor translation quality. I'm sorry, translator and editors, but I'm going to be honest in this review; the translation is only at the level of being barely comprehensible. There are several sentences here and there that are incomprehensible, but I generally just guess the gist of them via context.

Translation quality aside, the story is actually quite enjoyable. The female MC has a lovely positivity, and is portrayed with considerable wit, making her character more than just a... more>> walking pair of breasts. Our favourite reincarnation-into-fantasy-world template has a slight spin that maintains all the familiarity of an overpowered protagonist and a RPG levelling system, yet hints at some interesting elements of the story's setting that might be further explored in the future.

Thanks to the Tl team for putting out the work, of course. TL-san, if you read this, I'm hoping that you find yourself in better places in the future. I don't recommend relying on the NU community, as it's not practical given how niche JP novels are in the grand scheme of things, and how most readers are broke asses too. Best of luck. <<less

omfg, this is appalling trash! If I could give this novel a negative five, I would! On the very first day, the chick colludes with the inn employees, drugs MC and rapes him. After he wakes up, and this is literally in the f**king novel, he says it's pointless to be angry, she is super cute and his type, he doesn't mind to be her puppet and marries her almost on the spot. And he keeps staying at that inn, where people schemed against him, without minding anything. And later we find out that it was the same f**king god that summoned MC got this girl to drug him and rape him. The god says she a good girl and it took him a while to convince her. Yes, because only good people get others drugged and raped. If I was summoned to this damn world and was told I can be a hero or a villain or whatever I wanna be, I would go ahead and destroy everything, because why the heck not if everyone in there is a damn insane criminal, including the gods.

Then, in just a few chapters like a total moron, he exposes himself as an OP hero and then runs away from the city. The kingdom sent 30 assassins after him, who are then killed by MC, except for one chick, who MC tortures and brutally rapes for information. Right after this, he goes right back to the city where he escaped from, meets with the king and starts f**king work for the king who tried to kill him. And not only that, he saw the assassin chick in the slave shop and byes her because he feels responsible that he ruined her life. I cannot even make this sh*t up. Just what kind of mental patient wrote this novel?

And what happened next? The princess of the kingdom that tried to kill him tries to drug him and rape him, which he knowingly almost lets happen all the way through! And he goes and gets engaged with this princess right after that. And the first chick, who he married after she drugged and raped him got upset because just how is it possible for him to get engaged with a princess who almost drugged and raped him.

What the hell is this novel? This is MC is in the top 4 most stupid MCs I've seen. All the while the stupid sh*t happens, he doesn't even do anything. This is the most pointless novel I've seen. The novels where MC just travels around or does random sh*t with seemingly no purpose have more plot than this novel. Not to mention, the atrocious translation that got way worse in later chapters. Every sentence is ungrammatical, spelling errors, all names are misspelled and usually written multiple ways in the same sentence. Hollly, shiit, this novel is so dumb..

I like the girl in the illustration. Protect that smile, fam. She's precious.

It's an isekai novel (template), slice of life, a little bit of drama, and that's all you need to know. That "29 years old" part doesn't matter (at all) tbh, so just ignore it.

MC is just a normal guy with a bit of cheat, but he can be summed up as "a normal guy trying to live normally in other world". Sadly, he met our (10/10 best girl) heroine that somehow so desperate in getting a potential mate... more>> because she was betrothed to someone she dislikes. She accidentally stumbled upon the MC and thought "hey this guy might be quite decent" and tried her best to get laid (haha).

At first, MC was quite reluctant to let her join his party because she was completely utterly ridiculously useless... but in the end, with a bit of **coughs** cooperation from the other, she managed to get MC to woo her (Unconciously. Yea, he got raped by her lmao).

MC, as a typical Japanese person, feel obliged to take responsibility of wooing her. Moreover she's a cutie so it's a win-win solution, and so he took her as his wife.

—edit:

As per v2c25, we now have one legal wife, one fiancee (whose also the 1st wife's rival and her childhood friend), and one woman who has crush on him but hesitates to makes her advance because she did some offense to him in the past (now she stucks at being his maid).

He always stays faithful to Marl, his first wife, and blocked any advances from other girls.

Yea, I know it's contradictory to what I wrote above, but he really only has Marl in his eyes. He took a fiancee simply because she's Marl's good friend and he needs to repay the favor plus strengthen the relationship between two countries... of course with his first wife's permission.

___
tl;dr

It's a slice of life, comedic isekai story, so just enjoy their manzai**coughs** interactions. <<less

He becomes a rapist. He gives a lot of reasoning as to why he was justified in raping a girl but in the end it's just excuses. He raped her because he enjoyed terrorizing the girl. Guy is definitely a little messed up in the head, he even gets off on terrorizing or "teasing" Linet after she becomes afraid of him because he raped Flam. Then he starts acting polite because he doesn't want to be seen as a thug but sorry, way too late for that to happen. In the end he's just a piece of trash with some cheats.

Well... The story is very generic and pettry much the same as other isekai but the difference in this one is that the heroine is that she is the one atacking the protagonist and rather than the male getting the girl it is the girl getting the male... She basically took the MC by force, its quite unexpected and nice seen a heroine going forward to the protagonist like that.

So far the MC has gotten various skills and all, and the heroine at the start offers no help at all... more>> besides info about the world, she currently c6 can use a crossbow to hit trees from afar... so she is currently no help at all yet <<less

I did a quick skim and read. The MC is a massive hypocrite.

1) he rapes a girl and contemplated selling her to a slave merchant.

1.5) he gets off on her fear of him afterwards and contemplates raping her again

... more>> 2) later on he sees the exact same girl in the slave market who has since been trained as a s*x slave and goes "o slavery is bad it is abhorrent. I should buy her to save her"

Wtf?

Wtf?

First you rape her and get off on her fear of you and go yeah she should be a slave potentially my f*** toy and than go "o woe is the world slavery should not be a thing it is vile"

Massive hypocrite <<less

Well volume 1 was good, but at the end of ch 17 went downhills and here is why..... more>>
Spoiler

some assasins appears and he kills them in return, all but 1 girl that he decides mindbreaking her by rape, and making her watch how he killed her comarades. In that world you are not the bad one if they tried to kill you first you have the right to do with them whatever it pleases you

but just the mere idea of the author to make you think that it was ok just because it was self defense, or that now is everything ok, is a big nope. <<less

BLUF: This novel starts strong then drops off a cliff before the half way mark

What I mean is that the MC is everything I would want in a MC, slightly Cocky, but still keeps himself from becoming over confident. Doesn't Just accept that women are sugar and spice, and must be protected and submissive. And the story is even slightly realistic, as why would attractive women want to work at an adventurer guild anyways? It's like a super model deciding to work at the DMV or City Hall. Just retarded.

Well... more>> the MC is too easy going after a while, he gets raped and just plays it off as "well sh*t happens" then even more sh*t happens and he still goes with it like he just accidentally ran into a deer on the road. The novel went from realistic and enjoyable to down right retarded. However the story (if you exclude those moments since they are basically just one time events that almost never get recalled again) is decent. Don't see me reading this in the future, but you should be prepared to have a story that will just blindside you out of nowhere. <<less

First of all I liked this ay the start, but as the story progresses the protagonist becomes something like a worthless piece of sh*t.

Reasons why piece of sh*t.

1. About skill: He named himself as a good gamer, but I probably think he is just a cheater and not just any cheater he cheats even in the very easy mode wtf was that. You call yourself a good gamer and then you will wish for a very easy mode? I mean men no offense but ok good gamer in very easy... more>> mode the worst part is he still complaints in very easy mode that he is having a hard time!!!. WTF was that it was a disgrace as a gamer.

2. I know that you love somebody. But that is not the reason to follow everything she wants! Atleast make a decision for yourself sometimes and not let her have the last say everytime. You might call it love but to me you are pamperring her way too much. Its almost like you are brainwashed. In a "VERY EASY MODE".

3. Skill allocation

Whats up with the jack of all trades style? Every real good gamer has thier own skill allocation and know thier way around. Not spending skill point in every skill! For example you can take air and fire or you can add earth but I will not suggest a 4th skill path as long as you havent maxed the first 3! He is an idiot not a good gamer.

  1. Well what can I say? After passing chapter 24 I thought it still has a chance but yeah im wrong its time to part ways. So much explanation of twisted reasons to justify himself. In the relationship too when he said "someone already owned him" and not, "I already love someone" or "i already have a woman". For f**ksake who is the girl on your relationship? Is it you you f**king protagonist? This is f**king gaysh*t.
Almost forgot to mention hes a Masochist so don't expect much on him for those who will continue reading. <<less

Spoiler

At first the MC got pestered by an unknown girl, who was not willing to go in other party as they are targeting her body or having bad thoughts. The Guild guy "coincidentally" was nearby and vouched for the girl being good. On the same day, after our MC reluctantly took in the girl, the MC got raped by the girl with the help of the Inn girl. What an irony! The girl did the same thing which other people were aiming towards her.

[collapse]

I lost all of my interest in reading this novel. A person who is 29 year old is mature enough to know what they have to do in certain situation. Ofcourse that place is otherworld and he has no idea about the common sense of that world, but I think that some things stay the same whereever you go to.

Like if at a place where you were drugged by the resident of that very place, will you stay there from next day willingly? Will you trust them with their food and water? This MC does exactly the opposite like nothing happened at all.

Well this is just the start, I don't know what more weird things will come out in the next chapters, I am dropping it.

Sorry.

PS: Just read a review by "sgrey". After reading his spoiler, I am really glad that I dropped it at right time. I would have gone mental. <<less

Had potential but became unrelatable imediately.

Reason: MC learns kingdoms normally kill potential heroes due to being hard to control and only pretend to support them. Sends assasins to kill him. Nearly kills his girl but MC only stops at killing assasins and does not show any anger towards the kingdom. Normally when a loved one is almost killed, one would express rage and would want justice or vengance but MC doesnt.

For once I would have loved if an MC would put royals and nobles in their place by enforcing retrebution... more>> for their crimes instead of hiding like a wuss

Regarding translator... Bad grammar, aweful website... Full of damn ads that try to make my phone install sh*t apps. Beyond frustrating <<less

The MC is spineless. Killing some assassins lead him to a breakdown. Raping the female assassin and when he saw her again as a slave, he purchased her and try to justify his actions. Tends to get attempted rape by princesses alot, yet always seems to listen to their "circumstances" and shrug it off. Overpowered & overconfident MC but acts like a bitch when it comes to females.

The protagonist doesn't really have much of backbone despite his power.

The only reason I keep reading this is because he is powerful.

If you're looking for a domineering protagonist this one is not for you.
