I try not to write long scathing reviews all that often unless needed, but this one NEEDS IT.

But falloutexile3, you've only read 3 chapters! How can you know how good or bad a story is just from reading so little?

It's easy when the premise is flawed.

Much like constructing a building, an premise must be solid. Sure, the story and objectives therein may change as plot develops, but you still need a good starting line. I couldn't make it past chapter 3 due to the sheer folly of the setup. A... more>> flawed premise is like a poor foundation, it seems like it can be handled for a short time, but the more you try to add on to it, the more it fractures and stresses until it breaks. Beware "plot prep" spoilers.


First off: MC being bullied is normal as a story motivational concept. Standard trope. MC being sent alongside summons of class. That's fine and becoming mainstream. Someone standing up for MC when he's getting bullied-par for the course. Where it falls apart is that the MC is so self-absorbed that he thinks that he has NO RESPONSIBILITY in the matter. He is LITERALLY told that he has to DO something to stop being bullied (real shocker folks). However he somehow tries (and fails) to cast the person telling him that in a negative light as someone with a "sense of justice" BUT THEN turns around and blames everyone else for not doing anything as he is being bullied as he goes off to commit su*cide. YOU CANNOT HAVE IT BOTH WAYS. MC is blaming everyone else for not doing anything when he is being bullied and then when someone IS trying to help him by getting MC to DO SOMETHING ABOUT IT he discredits them for trying to help. Accountability? Standing up for oneself? Nah I'll just chuck myself off a building instead, that'll show them all. WTFITS? It's basicaly summed up in these lines:


I'm the one at fault?

What is this guy saying?

I committed su*cide.

He effectively killed someone.


No child... just, no. The bully may have contributed to the su*cide as a driving factor, but su*cide is ultimately the selfish act of killing oneself. The bully did not chuck the MC off the side of the building. THAT would be him "effectively killing someone" or in other words: mu*der. MC is hiding himself behind a victim mentality where everyone else is the problem just so he can abandon responsibility. When the basis for your revenge is your own lack of responsibility, you likewise lack any true credibility for vengeance.

Second: Healer is being classified as a tr*sh profession in the other world because they prioritize firepower above all else.

Bull. Sh*t.

Anyone who understands the basics of war will value the idea of a healer no matter how powerful a weapon they desire. When you look at the casualties of war throughout the recorded centuries more fatalities stemmed from diseases and infections than from actual combat until you hit more modern times with sanitation efforts. Go see how many people are still alive today due to combat medics and battlefield medical staff ranging from surgeons to technicians that would have otherwise died. Go ahead, I'll wait. No matter how asinine rulers might be in this other world, there must be an adviser who would whisper a "sir, we can still use him" to the rulers. Anyone with a lick of sense would see the value of a person who can prevent one of their vaunted heroes from hemorrhaging out on the battlefield. Classifying a healer as useless is like saying "Oh, this person only has the ability to carry a bunch of materials in a sub-space dimension. That's garbage, he can't possibly help our war efforts at all. We'll throw him away rather than have him transport incredible quantities of materials quickly and efficiently to the front-lines to supplement our supply caravans."

The only logical conclusion that can be drawn is that the rulers have a plethora of healers readily available and they realize that the MC (who has literally just confessed himself to have shown a blatant disregard to the value of human life) is better off cut out of their fight. This is a logical and practical decision that is putting the lives of their summoned "heroes" and their own citizens out of harms way by casting off someone who lacks self-preservation and trustworthiness. This further weakens any plot of his vengeance being justifiable. "But teh prinzess laft at me and thru me owt..." So a princess is a spoiled brat who doesn't pull her punches-reality check, kid: in ye olde days citizens were considered property of the crown. Attempted su*cide was punished with execution because you attempted to deprive the crown of his property. MC is "lucky" (read: plot armor) he got himself transported elsewhere to try (and unfortunately fail) to sort out his mental issues rather than having a quick date with the headsman's axe or hangman's noose.


Result: When I first saw the tags I had hope this story could have been interesting. I usually like isekai underdog/revenge stories and throwing in skill assimilation further whet my appetite. The problem is that when the premise of revenge stems from the MC's lack of responsibility and a victim mentality that perceives his problems to be the fault of everyone EXCEPT himself to the point that even people trying to HELP him are labeled as an enemy from their attempt to help him, revenge becomes unjustifiable. I'm abandoning this "story" before I get my hopes dashed even further from additional faulty logic.

Edit: to clarify, I'm not saying the bully was guiltless, I'm saying that blaming a su*cide (even a failed one) on everyone else but yourself is twisting the truth of the matter. MC needs to accept the consequences of his own actions and inaction or he is no better than the bully who did the same to him. Instead, MC is so completely self-absorbed he doesn't bother to think about or even make any mention of family much less pause to consider how killing himself will hurt them. <<less

Nnnah... Don't get jebaited by the premised "ISEKAI REVENGE STORY"

Many Japanese novel with that theme have a ret*rd plot or story or characters, and this is one of them.

Thankfully, you just need to read until ch 10, and you will understand why. LoL..

Just imagine you just get out from the dungeon, and met a party. Suddenly one of them turn hostile against you, and you already proof that you mean no harm and you can easily wipe them out, and on top of that, your humanity still kick in and choose to spare them. Suddenly one of them attack you from behind, mocking you, and finally you can turn the table. That person now knew your power, and scare of you. Suddenly say this to you "Chill out bro, its just a joke, I mean no harm, I have no mean no kill you" meanwhile you literally can feel he wants to kill you. What will you do after that? On top of that, he mocking you again with saying "lets be friend bro" out of nowhere..

Well, you can guess what MC did in this story when he said that. He be like "Okay" LOOOOL

So, avoid this novel as soon as possible.

Yes, I read the raws, because I desperately wanted to know how the story will go.

After that, I read the reviews, because I wanted to see if there was someone like me who read ahead. There was one who read up to c240.

This story is not for those who want a "revenge story". It is also not for those who are looking for "redemption" or "a story about overcoming your faults".

There is no moral, no lesson to be learned in this story. It is simply a story, a tale that... more>> the author wanted to share to others, even if he does it sloppily. Most people would consider such stories as "tr*sh" or "not worth reading", and perhaps that's true. Still, if things like that don't bother you, give it a try.

[Just to add, I see people getting mad over the fact that "healer" is considered weakest and useless in this world. I was also wondering why it is like that, until I understood that, in this world, the only skill a healer has is "Heal Lvl 1" (which is equivalent to Ragnarok's "First Aid" skill), and it doesn't improve at all. Healers also have really low stats, although that could be solved with training.] <<less

I wanted to give this one a chance because I like the cover, but I wasted my time.

The MC is a bitter tr*sh. His reasonning is extreme: Most pretended to see nothing when he was bullied? He'll kill them all! Some tried to stop the bullying? The white knight hypocrites, he'll kill them too! The princess and king of a kingdom at war don't want to waste time coddling him and send him away? He'll destroy the whole nation! And so on...

And the story goes downhill after this. Despite issuing... more>> those death threats right to their faces, he's free to go. The summoners see his status that has a super-OP skill listed (skill absorption, a classic Get-OP-with-a-few-kills of this genre), but they somehow don't care because he's a healer. The random teleporation send him in a OP dungeon, because reasons, where he just happen to get another super-OP one-hit kill skill, even before meeting any of the monsters. And one use of that skill later, his gained level and stats instantly remove any element of tension or danger there could have been. So much for the high-level dungeon.

At this point the Deus Ex Machina is so blatant it would be suited for a parody of revenge isekais (and not a subtle one). But no, the author is serious.

This WN is a greatly inferior version of Failure Frame or Arifureta, don't waste time on it. <<less

It's so typically Japanese that it hurts.

Revenge theme, but there's never revenge. Is the protagonist at least the tiniest bit ruthless you may wonder? No. The protagonist may have all the power in the world, but his mentality is exceptionally weak. A pretty girl? His hands begin shaking at the very thought of even attacking her, let alone killing her. Attacked unprovoked? The protagonist feels that since the attacker has friends, family et cetera, it would be a crime against humanity to kill them.

I would only recommend this novel to my worst enemies. Painful to read.

The MC is a typical wimp that loses in every game even though he has the cheats, and the chicks just get attracted to him like magnets. The character development is just terrible.

The setup scales too hard too fast for not enough reason. If someone achieves an insane amount of power - should it be something they worked for?

one way to answer is no. Death March is a classic example of Power given without a lot of work, but the interesting part about Death March is how the protagonist innovates on top of his OPness. He uses his powers in interesting ways to accomplish difficult goals that are difficult because of his perfectionism.

another answer is yes. This category would have classic weak... more>> to strong progression arcs like Shield Hero. The hero toils for the experience and progression.

However, this WN follows neither of these patterns. The MC is immature and psychologically unstable, the process he gains power unearned, the way he uses it unsatisfying. His revenge plot is simply kill everyone that he perceived wronged him, and he’s backed up by the skills he was gifted. Spare yourself an hour and don’t read this, it’s like Shield Hero plus 100x more edge and minus anything that made it good. <<less

The thing with all revenge isekai stories is that they need to be compared against Failure Frame, which is undisputably the leader among them that deserves 5 stars. Compared to Failure Frame this novel got:

    • A less likeable protagonist. Really miserable, embittered and with unreasonable expectations from society to boot. Reminds me of an old parable about the guy who was sitting praying on the rooftop during the flood.
    • A weaker revenge justification. No matter what he thinks his revenge claims on every but two of his classmates are damn null. Revenge claims on king / princess are weak as well, because not only they used willing human sacrifices to fuel the summoning and got someone below their expectancy, the person himself happened to be rather toxic too. Regretfully, it is stated they were going to send him off to random location regardless - if not I would had concluded that this is how the author intended the character to be, and looked forward to some personality development. Alas, apparently not the case.
    • A much more ridiculous deus ex machina. The protagonist of Failure Frame was specifically sent to impossible dungeon to die, and had it harder in the beginning, facing not only enemies, but things like lack of food and mental fatigue. The protagonist of NEET Healer just happens to land in the impossible dungeon, just happens to find a massive powerup (without any downside), just happens to find here a stockpile of food and wine, just happens to find equipment that is immediately useful, etc. Feels like it was nothing but gain for him.
    • A less consistent character decision making. But who knows, maybe it's actually intended by the author that protagonist is an angsty do-gooder who would spare people who not only tried to silence him, but clearly said that they plan to recruit people who he swore revenge upon.
    • Harem. Harems almost always drag the story down. Part of the reason why I regard Failure Frame highly is because it has no harem.
All in all it's a coin toss between 2 and 3 stars. It was a bit fun, so I'm going with 3 stars.

EDIT: lol @ current recommendations, the only one that makes sense is Arifureta. Guess I should add some reasonable stuff myself. If you're reading this then consider upvoting Failure Frame and Garbage Brave.

I read the manga. It wasn't great, but I stuck with it. I decided to keep going with the novel.

And boy does it suck.

To be frank, the author is utterly and completely incompetent. I knew they weren't great from the first few chapters; they literally have the MC beat level 500 stuff with magic that instantly kills anything as the first part of the novel. As the story progresses, we find out that level 30 stuff is a major threat to the countries, so... we've already removed all stakes. That... more>> worked in something like Arifureta because the threat was established to be LITERALLY GOD early on and there were powers that could oppose the MC. Here? Nah, he's all powerful and there are no enemies that can rival him. Also, Arifureta was a comedy, whereas this one takes itself seriously.

But hey, at least he's only got raw stats right? Nah, he gets the traits of anyone or anything he kills, so he can move at superspeed and do tons of types of magic. But healers can't cast offensive magic... except his inversion skill instantly turns any or all magic he couldn't cast into god tier super magic that he can. But maybe he's weak in melee? Nah, he got a perfect sword art downloaded into his head with 0 training.

But let's go downhill further. The level 600 MC constantly insists he's weak and that his classmates are a threat. This is after he finds out level 30 is high level. After he has seen the statuses of the other "heroes". After he's discovered he's able to defeat monsters that were so strong they couldn't be graded. After he's basically established to be the strongest in the world. And he never abandons this thinking.

But wait, maybe the plot is ok? Nah. The first couple of arcs are fine... and then the MC decides to accomplish his revenge instantly, leveling the evil king/princess' castle and killing them both with absolutely no trouble. From there, the MC decides "I'm edgier now" and basically becomes inconsistently evil for basically no reason. He makes godawful decisions. Sometimes he'll make a rational decision only to 180 to an awful one immediately after. For example, at one point, he chooses not to help a princess who was nice to him because her father was crazy... only to find out the princess was crazy too... so he decides that "she's a raving psycho b****; I guess she'll make a much better party member now than when I thought she was sane and nice" and immediately recruits her. WTF?

That was one of the two events that made me drop this. The other was the MC getting a vision of the future, where the future him is like "I know you are watching because I saw the same vision; find THAT magic to save waifu #2". Author... what is that awful writing? If the MC saw the same vision, how would that change anything? He'd just follow the exact same path. Future sight only works to split off a new future if you *aren't* establishing it as a time loop. Secondly... what an overdone cliche. Lastly... why the heck is the MC playing the pronoun game with HIMSELF. If it was so important as to represent the life or death of one of the people closest to himself, why the hell wouldn't he just SAY WHAT TO DO. It was just so a badly written badly used and nonsensical cliche. <<less

So far I'm not impressed... the MC is completely belligerent and acts like some big d*ck baller even when he just got his arm bitten off just recently and is obviously in a high level dungeon.

An arrogant and s*upid MC does not make for a good story....

I finished reading the raw using google translate and at best I gave this novel 3.5 / 5.0

The first half of the story was good at first there was proper pacing for events, a decent build-up for the story's plot points, and the story was taking a logical advance.

The MC was enjoying his another-world life and I enjoyed reading it.

The second half of the story really went to the garbage hole there was no more pacing or build-up instead the story just jump from one event... more>> to another, I no longer know where the plot is going and no longer enjoy reading any of what the MC or the other characters are doing nor do care,

from the second half to the ending, it was like Guilty Crown all over again if you watched the anime that how I felt about reading the web novel.

after finishing the story I find many things I was dissatisfied with:

    1. the author introduces some elements like Class rank-up and potions, but I haven't read a single thing about these elements since he introduced it neither the MC nor any other character mange to get a Class rank-up or use any potion in the entire story, these are some of the elements the author introduces and never use there are more elements in the story which I would like to see more use for in the story or to know more about it.
    1. the MC meets some really high-level characters not as high-level as him but at the very least when you read about them for the first time you would expect to see them again later in the story.

like when the MC meets a LV 300 red dragon that the MC help with returning his stolen jewel (was it) the dragon saying he will return the favor but to never see him again or the party or three who manage to corner the MC during the final war but they get rekt by him and you don't know much about them you don't even get some back story nor enough information to actually feel their weight in the world of the story


3. Not enough back story for the MC, the MC gets his back story mentioned briefly in one chapter but every other character get at least one dedicated chapter, even when the MC was getting his revenge on his classmates I didn't feel good about it or if he was really deserving to do what he did to them nor did I felt bad for his classmates' except three of them because their back story made me feel at least sympathy for them.

4. The ending was bitter-sweet but what the flipping hell with this ending


I read 351 chapters of this novel just for the MC Thanos snapped himself out of existing to rest the world, he did give a better life to all the 4 girls in his party member and he did change the world to a better place by the 4 nudges he did to their lives and made it closer to his ideal world, but the Mc that got summoned after the reset and the MC that I read from the beginning to end before the rest are not the same even after the Mc see the memories about the life he had before the rest he can't feel any relation to the MC before the rest


hopefully, the Light novel would do better, I'm fine with changing the entire plot after the MC leaves the first city he's in. <<less

As the one would bears the grunt to read this depressing novel WN up to Volume 4 of the novel in hopes for it change to a better light in latter chapters, what can I say is, read this novel when you have nothing to do, up of a depressing wild ride or JUST DON'T READ IT AT ALL COST.

At first glance, I thought that this novel has some potential to become a great novel, but I was greatly disappointed everytime I read it. The plot is somewhat stiff and... more>> a little bit forced, and what tick me the most was the MC was too fixated on his revenge that he even discards people that really cares about him.

Expect for some huge character development? I'm sad to tell you theres little character development. In the first and second volume its ok, it goes downhill after that. The MC is dumb and dense, he is given this OP power and did try or experiment to the fullest extent of the given powers, but he simply doesn't know how to use it the correct and efficient way. There are times that I question "Why doesn't he use this particular skill on that particular situation?" and sometimes MC's actions really makes me wonder how much dumber can he get?

Please for the sake of any god that you believed in, read this novel when you have nothing to do, up of a depressing wild ride or JUST DON'T READ IT AT ALL COST. <<less

From just the glimpse of the reviews that I see here, I knew that I had to say something about this series given that the reflection that people have on the manga version were well received with a 4.8/5 rating. While here, it's a 2.6/5 when the story portrayed in the manga is no different from the web novel, even make use of the same dialogue there.

And stop making reviews and b*tching about the revenge when you're not even at c20. That's when it happens too actually. So be patient... more>> since it will no longer be a revenge story when all of the targets are dead so quickly. It will just be another harem story with an overpowered isekai.

When reading this review, I want you guys to take away the notion that this is a 2.6/5 web novel series and try to look at things objectively first since every comment here seems to be very emotional rather than objectively judging it as it is, as if they're just joining in the rage since it's fun to talk sh*t a series and rate it 1/5 than being objective about it.

There's a reason why the MC has a terrible personality and that was the goal of the author to portray an immature child, in this case a bunch of high schoolers, living in an isekai world. The author really did captured the personality of each summoned heroes in the story really well. Even right down to the revenge and the afterglow of it where you're filled with regrets. Thinking that it ended too quickly. They didn't suffered much. He wanted them to know the pain of going through bullying for the past 10 years like masamune did. It makes perfect sense that the revenge ended up being the build up, even if in those time that they were left alive and would find happiness while masamune is living in pain. He would enjoy killing their love ones and even better, leave them alive while he keeps on killing everyone that they've loved or liked. It's that kind of ideal of revenge that makes this an enjoyable web novel to read.

If the MC was some middle age man with a respectable job, I could see why you would attack the main character for being childish and s*upid, but he's not, is he? He's literally a Schadenfreude. The type of person that enjoys the suffering of humans. It's entertainment for him to look at them with disgust since he was called a disgusting germ throughout his highschool year and people were laughing at him so that ended up developed him to who he is now, just like those bullies. But this time, the order of power is reset and he's the one in control of their lives.

You guys also need to understand, for somebody that's f*cked up enough to attempted su*cide, this kind of behavior is to be expected from the MC. Don't just brush that off when you say that he's got a bad personality. I personally like seeing how a "flawed" character, emotionally and mentally, in these novels since they tend to do things without thinking. Oh? 2 Kings are ordering me to give my party member to them? I will just make them vomit insects and make them nearly die because I'm a hero and nobody could tell I'm doing this, these 2 kings that eat beastmen and ens*aved them like some goblins, will have to go through hell! This doesn't spoil anything btw if you don't intend to read it all the way through.

Now, addressing the flaw of this series. The writing and the pacing are amateurish, right down to the characters for the first few 50 chapters of this series. But during the school arc, the tournament, where he finally kills 3 of his classmates, this is when I knew I just found a hidden gems after seeing all the tr*shes.

I came in here with low expectation thanks to the rating and the reviews, but I just realized just how ignorant and narrow minded some of the readers here were being. If you guys are hating this series just because of masamune, keep in mind that you're not the only one laughing at how bad his character is, I have seen all adult in this series making fun of him for being a child, with the face of a child. Heck, every kings and even the emperor are making fun of him for being a child, even if they're goddamn scared of his power. This isn't an unintentional writing to make the MC looks bad, he's literally the bad guy of the series who's trying to also be the "good guys" for his friends. That's essentially all he cares about as he already hated humans when he came to this world and the only one reaching out to him were the demihumans, demons, and other non-human races. <<less

In my opinion, this story is certainly cliche isekai tr*sh, no matter how I look at it. But a fairly good one when compared to its many fellow isekai tr*shes on this site. The side characters and harem have reasons for their behavior and are not mindless followers (except for a certain child catkin s*ave who seems to exist solely for the lolicons...), and the protagonist actually has a personality and motivations, flawed as they may be.

I honestly don't understand most of the reviews this story has been given. sure,... more>> some make fair points, but the rest seem to just be the result of not knowing what comes next and judging it prematurely.

Not enough revenge for you?


He slowly tortures the king and princess to death using acid and the grudges of the people they killed and then obliterates their castle out of spite towards the kingdom.


You think he's overreacting by wanting to kill the people responsible for repeatedly ruining his life and then leaving him for dead? What's so strange about that?

It's depressing? yes, well it is a 'drama' with 'brainwashing, ' 'su*cide, ' 'twisted personality, ' and 'torture' tags.

Anyway, I'm not gonna read any further than this, as it would take several hours and I don't really think this story is worth the headache that comes with reading the google translated raws (few are)... but I'll keep reading the manga as it comes out, and if ever there is an anime I'll gladly watch that too. <<less

I commented this on the foxaholic website under this story, but I'd like to say it here too. While this story may have flaws in the character writing, (mainly them having inconsistent motivations, being s*upid when they aren't supposed to be, or both) there is a genuine creativity that's hard to find elsewhere in the iseaki genre. The protagonist's magic, ... more>>

abyss magic

has the craziest spells. Like he can summon hags that shove bugs down the victims throat which results in them vomiting until they die, he can summon some bandaged up nurse who has their guts spill out then turns the organs into sharp projectiles, and sumon this giant, smiling, face that just chomps down on whatever he wants it too. I'd say The magic alone is worth reading this for, just because of how fascinating it is.

Of course the magic wasn't the only reason I stayed. The author makes a decent attempt to add intrigue and mystery into the story, and for the most part I enjoy it. Although it tends to feel poorly paced and kind of sidelined because of how the protagonist feels about it


The protagonist, at least in most cases, values exploring the world a lot, because of this the protag kinda puts off investigating because he wants to have the fantasy adventure he always dreamed about.


If you stick with this novel for a bit you'll eventually see how unique this novel can be compared to other iseakis. Personally I think its because of the atmosphere, and kinda hard to describe. There's also a manga, and the art fit REALLY well with the atmosphere I got from the novel, so maybe that'll help get across what I'm trying to say.

On a final note I just want to say that I think its sad no one seems to be translating this story. I miss when there were daily uploads and really hope I'll be able to finish it one day. <<less

Main character gets banished after finding out that people don't have much expectations from his given class.

They teleport him in a random area to get rid of him. His classmates laughed at him cause he was the class weakling.

Mad that he couldn't get a better treatment he literally yells out he would take revenge.

... more>> A few moments after he forgets about his revenge and morally conflicts with himself like the weak sauce he is.

I am very dissapointed that the MC couldn't be more manly as he uses his "teenage" thinking to go throughout the world.

The fact that he couldn't hold on to his anger that long only to spike it after being triggered again makes this unbearable.

From his previous history of being brow beat and bullied he is very passive and that can be shown lots of times.

Like many other genres, the story is dragged out on how beta and how much of a "weakling" the MC is. <<less

This story surprised me quite a lot. I found the manga first, and thought it had some potential, and as I read the novel, it did not disappoint me. I saw the reviews though, so I will make sure to fix a few misunderstandings for newcomers.

This review is long, but I think I summarized the good parts for people that may have similar tastes as myself.

If you want an "Edgy Revenge" story, like those of betrayed characters that go full on crazy with torture and so on, this is not the story. So for those comparing with Nidome no Yuusha, this is mostly a no. Yes, he is fueled by revenge, but his character growth does extend out of that. I see others comparing to Failure Frame too, and all... more>> I can say is that the only similarities are in the method in how MC is split from the rest of the group, everything else is completely different, so comparing only to it feels like someone is limited in the amount of novels they read.

This is not a "slow life" story about MC and his Harem living life leisurely and peacefully with super cheats and stuff. This is not a story about suffering, but it does seem to treat some themes, mainly about "selfharm", so I wonder if this comes from the author's personal experiences or of those close to him, so although the MC may sometimes go beyond broken, that's where the heroines fit in the "treatment". I will explain about their roles later.

So, how it starts, MC and class was summoned, he got the worst job Healer, and instead of receiving the "Hero" title, he received the "Reincarnated" one. This came because just before the summoning, MC jumped from the school terrace. The students however did not knew of this, but learned as he explained it after the summoning, and (almost) all of them were very shocked, however, they couldn't do much in that situation, the country's princess then teleported him to some random place to die and that was it.

Now, I do understand the criticism of "why didn't they just kill him then?". There is no answer to that, for all I know, they may have just not wanted to stain the carpet with tr*sh, and since the princess is an specialist in teleportation, well, that was basically free. *Shrugs*

Then we have the trait of "he appeared in a super convenient place" and got super convenient power ups. Yup, there has been no explanation for that either, but, I do think there is one: Only him got a "Goddess Blessings" skill. This means that there could be some fate involved, there is an event later that reveals someone was observing him during that time, a completely unrelated being at the time. So in that dungeon, he got hold of what would become his cheat skill, related to another God, defeats a super powerful guy in one go, befriends him and so on. This, I believe, may be all related to this fate, because MC gets then involved with the past of the world, and the dungeon he was in is a part of this story.

Like in FF, the growth numeric values are really low (10xlvl), but unlike there, where MC just shows almost inexhaustibly Mana values, in this one, MC does shows super strength and so on, I mean, if you have over 1000 of a certain value, you would be expected to have that, right? But that's where any resemblance with Failure Frame ends.

As a healer, MC can only use basic healing magic, although boosted by his status, but he gets nothing else from his class. The cheats he gets however are:

- Goddess Blessing = Loot/Skill grabbing. This allows him to select one "prize" for every enemy he kills, and this includes skills. However, having skills doesn't mean he is able to use those, so even if he were to have the skill to use Fire, it seems he wouldn't be able to cast it. It does seem it's possible to train to learn though, but that hasn't been made very clear. It's important to note that he can only choose 1 prize per kill, so many stronger enemies have either equipment or multiple skills, but he can only chose 1, and the others are lost. Through this, he got the usual OP MC arsenal of Item Box and Appraisal skills.

- God of Revenge = Extreme Reversing. Allows to get the opposite of skills and items, and this is the main method of how he uses his skills, for example, "healing" turns into "erosion", which is fatal, the opposite is true too, so he could do healing by reversing fatal abilities or items. Now, a basic healing turning into something so fatal like what it did may sound strange, shouldn't it be just some "low damage" spell? This actually is explained better further about what sort of magic he is tapping (A good comparison is how Death-Attribute in Death Mage is treated in the world). I noticed that the translation does seem to skip the status chapters, which keep track of where each skill came from, and which reverse ability it results.

And so, he becomes something like a One Man Army, and he does grow somewhat arrogant with that, besides the other factor related to his magic, and the "stuff" that he got by being involved with the God of Revenge.

So, about his psychology: MC swore revenge against the Kingdom and all his classmates. It may be interesting to point out, however, that for the reader, that may be somewhat unfair. As we see from the start, he was bullied, and others did just watch, but we also saw him refusing help, so couldn't he be b*tching about? Well, I think it's undeniable that when you are the one with such thoughts, you are more likely to push the blame onto others, that IS the easier way, after all.

So, as I described before, the heroines are something like a treatment:

The fourth comes later on in the story, so I won't give her name here, but she is the opposite of the other heroines, she is the one that accepts the sociopath tendencies of MC. Her fighting power is null, weaker than Nemu, but she is smart, and acts as the more complete source of information.

Her relationship with MC is that of someone who understands him, and is willing to support some of his insanity, although it doesn't seem she has fallen as low as him. She is blunt and does request some level of attention. Due to these similarities in thoughts between them, MC listens and complies to her even though she came somewhat late to the party. Unlike the 3 others, I couldn't find a comparison to a Shield Hero character, although she does fit the role of Malty in a few basic traits.

That is also not to say that the heroines themselves won't face their own trials that may scar them, thus changing their roles in this "treatment". Of course, these are mainly the main "heroines", there are more characters in the cast, both males and females, one timers and recurring characters, characters close to MC and those with little contact with him, that also acts as influences in his personality.

So, in regards to the usual MC traits: I'm not sure if he can be called "dense", although there has been basically no romance, these 4 heroines have shown affection to him, but they are not that proactive, and when they are, MC acts quite normally. He has no aversion to killing, in fact, one could say it gets worse as the story goes on, but that's not to say he won't kill innocents, more like, he won't care for people he is not close with. He understands that Japanese laws are irrelevant in isekai, so he drinks alcohol together with the girls. He however did not have s*x with none of them, as that was never really requested (Up to where I'm reading, there is basically no romance besides some squirming, and do remember, the main heroine is a sheltered young lady, she really sees no malice)

And now, the revenge targets.

Kingdom doesn't take long to be dealt with. Due to the conflicts in the story itself, and the whole mess MC got involved, you could say that the summoning started as a reaction of what MC is now dealing in a different way.

The classmates however are a little more complicated, it wasn't shown at first, but when they learned their classmate had done the act, they were mostly shocked, and recognized their inaction and blame, even the passive ones that received MC's threats understand that. The bully character that didn't care for MC is the one with the "Sage" job, and the character that did find things strange and tried to do something is the "Hero". It is revealed much later though, but there is a "childhood friend" female character. I won't spoil anything beyond the existence though. Will they apologize? Will they be able to? Will MC accept if they do? Or will they be able to escape? Who knows, but they do seem to be growing up too, for better or worse.

But overall, their position could be vaguely comparable to the Bravers in "Death Mage" who died and learned of Vandalieu: Some didn't care for the unfairness he received, and cared only for themselves, others learned of his existence and felt regret, although there was nothing that could be done, so they tried to do better next, and finally there were the ones who didn't want anything to do with him, because they were indirectly threatened, they realize their position, and even if they want to apologize, there is no guarantee they would be forgiven. The difference is that this MC doesn't seem very willing to forgive.

There isn't much emphasis in politics, but they do exist, and I do like that the story tries to be realistic, so war doesn't happen just because of idealism, and peace only happens due to wars happening in other places. Ambition, desire, cruelty, unfairness, all these points are taken. And MC seems to adapt to the worse parts of it, but I feel like the author is aware, as other characters do understand that what MC is talking about is too extreme, hence, I have no idea how things will be dealt in the future.

Meanwhile, there is also a plot related to the world's past that is being unveiled (And I'm liking it so far), the actions and reactions from MC the surroundings are more interesting that I initially expected. It's interesting when the MC goes a bit insane, but holds back for a reason or another, ending with others being targeted, and sometimes, it's not all good.

Overall, I have no idea how this story will end, and although I'm not familiar with the topic of selfharming, I think the way it's being dealt is interesting. I'm not sure if those with personal experiences will related to it, as I don't, but nonetheless, I think that by the end, I wonder how will the results of these treatments end up as, as they change as the story goes on. <<less

I'm not going to harp on the MC's shitty character as I see plenty of reviews for that. There are two things I want to add because not many reviewers made it very far, deservedly so.

His power inhibits any mental growth the character could have. If he ever doubts himself in ANY way his powers don't work correctly. He has to do mental gymnastics to not just immediately massacre some people to avoid his powers going awry. This could have been an interesting way to challenge the MC, but instead... more>> is more used to keep him from ever growing up. Plus, any anxiety this could have caused is washed away by his "other half" that can just wave away the mental corruption.

Secondly, after a fairly normal paced beginning, the story just starts jumping around with no indication of why. There's tons of off screen happenings handwaved by, "He was out." One example is that he visits a shop owned by three dwarves who we have never met before, in a city that's never been mentioned before, and they are grateful to him for reasons that are literally never stated.

It's not the worst thing I've ever read, but that's about as high as I can praise it. <<less

This novel really is as bad as the reviews say.

By far the worst part of the novel is the character development. Absolutely none of the characters have concrete traits, switching between two extreme dualities. The main character is the worst example of this, but his bipolar nature is somewhat acceptable considering that he has an established mental illness (ie. Actually committing su*cide) and this illness is actually integral to the overarching story's plot.

The problem arises when literally every supporting character also have a duality of personality traits. People who seem... more>> good are actually batsh*t crazy on the inside, or people who are supposed to be strong and brave instantly cower in fear at the first sign of confrontation.

Even the "most consistent" character, the generic loli beastgirl, doesn't have a consistent traits, as she starts out being a physical damage dealer and instantly switches to being a magician for no apparent reason.

I realize the author is trying to establish this whole "duality of man" situation, but it's honestly just lazy writing when every ally, nation, and enemy possess this same trait.

There are other terrible parts to this novel such as the terrible power scaling, liberal use of deus ex machina, and nonsensical political systems; but I will leave those for other people to rant about.

The only remotely interesting thing about this novel is the "mystery" behind the MC's powers, but that mystery can only take you so far. Overall this novel is a solid 1/5. Review of English Translations: 2/5

Currently being "speedrun" by a single translator. The spelling is atrocious and the TL openly admits that he is too inconvenienced to add Apostrophes to words, leaving its theres and "thst" riddled throughout. Regardless, the TL does put out a lot of chapters at a high speed with some semblance of accuracy. Despite very much needing an editor, it does well to explain the story even if it is somewhat broken. I'm giving it a 2/5 for being "not the worst I've seen". <<less

As of the current state of the translation it's hard to tell about this one. First you should probably start with manga

I don't know if it's the difficulty translating Japanese or just the ratio of visual/ literal in the mangas but they always come across better than the novel translations.

Edit: managed to read 10 chapters of this through google translate and it's pretty bad. The opening which was what I thought was iffy and could have been better was actually the best part. And it seems to be dropping off... more>> a cliff from there. Toss in the fact that it's 300 chapters currently and as of 30 theres still no revenge, and seems to be dropping to an OP guy with a harem that drops into his lap, despite the girls winding up always protecting his honor. Toss out my old review and just drop it as 1 star or less. <<less
