Cleo Farseed, the son of a Duke was disowned by his family because he could only attain second place no matter what he did at the Royal Metropolitan Academy. And to get first he tried everything but always got only second at everything he did.

He decided to escape from his cramped life and live freely as an adventurer, and tried to utilize the skills he had acquired being second at everything, but neither the Duke nor Cleo himself were aware of it… how great it was to be second in everything even if not mastering one.

“I’m just plain. I’m not an expert in anything–”

The boy who is second is unaware. Will shake the surroundings with great strength–!

Ah yes, the good ol formula of the MC getting kicked and banished but it turns out that the MC's pretty OP and competent. The ppl who kicked him now wallow in regret blah blah blah

It's pretty alright. Starts out like any other novels like it and doesn't have much that makes it stand out from the rest. We'll see after a few more chapters if this turns out to be banger I guess

edit: Eh kinda mediocre. Not super bad that I hate it but just an average adventuring party... more>> stuff that you would see on other japanese novels. Honestly, the fact that he got banished is such a non factor that most of the time that they just give you snippets on the status of his family going downhill, and it doesn't really influence much in the story and the MC. Feel like it's there because it's obligatory for these stories to have occasional chapters where the banishers suffer for the readers' satisfaction, which I didn't really get.

So yeah the whole banished thing is mostly just something to get you to read it and the story itself is just an average but somewhat entertaining adventure story. <<less

Don't waste your time reading this.

The chapters are ridiculously short, even for a light novel. Plus the writing is bad. The plot is bad, with tons of plot holes and things that don't make sense. Apparently healing magic is a thing but the author keeps having it fail to heal wounds. At first it seems like the MC's father is just a moron because he doesn't realize how powerful the MC is but later in the story it is revealed that everyone in power also has this weird view about... more>> the importance of first place. How would you ever recruit people if you are only willing to recruit the very best? There can only be one "first place" so obviously the second best would be desirable as well, even if he wasn't second best at literally everything.

Then there's the harem. The usual "girls immediately fall madly in love with the MC" but the author seems to have some fixation about the MC needing to save them from their evil fathers. The chapters are so short that there is barely any time to get to know the characters or see them doing adventurer stuff and then the story gets further derailed because we keep having to read some nonsense about one of the girls having an issue with her evil father being mean to her and the MC has to rescue her. It's just a bunch of nonsense and there's no reason to read it. <<less

MC was kick out of his house after graduation because he was never the first in any subject.

Turn out he was in reality the strongest of them all, it's just that every subject have rules (likes no kick in swordplay) that inconvenient MC.

MC is dense, under evaluated, become know as an adventurer easily. Others try to find him, because only his father so far find him useless, only because he is oddly obsessed with the idea of being the number one of something.

MC didn't have any objective so far, he... more>> just ho along with what happen around him. No girls in love for now and even a first teammate male, that a good point. The story isn't bad, it's a classic. But I find it boring at some point, the premise is good, but he just doesn't catch my eyes. <<less

Honestly, the chapters are shorter then a frogs hair. It's like the author just wanted to push chapters without building any kind of substance. On top of it, he keeps referring to his friends that are supposed to be 'guys' (I really don't know but I get the feeling the author doesn't either) as having a 'beautiful face' so either they're not really guys or the MC is queer as a 3 peckered billy goat.
