First review~

One of my favorite novel. Thank you larvyde for translating it~

It's about a man who was in his childhood got picked up by the boss of an assassin organization, Black Maria, and was raised as the perfect assassin. BUT, not in the sense of physically strong, in fact his combat strength is maybe the lowest in Black Maria. He was molded to not cause people to have negative impressions on him. With his front identity as a kind physician, he gets along with many people including the targets, and... more>> kill them using that very affection.

Shizuru the MC does have relationships with many girls, but it can't be considered harem since most of them are yanderes and they don't want to share. <<less

This is the way adult novels should be done, sadly this kind of novel will never make it to the west without heavy censorship (localization?). Thanks to Larvyde for translating this great novel. I have only praises for this masterpiece, everything is balanced:
-The MC is neither the usual JP mangina nor a xianxia edgy MC.
-The female characters are interesting and attractive.
-Dark but not edgy and there's comedy.
-Only 17 chapters translated so no plot in sight but everything looks promising.

Pros:

1. A mature, likable MC. Someone whose personality actually enjoys helping others, but at the same time doesn't really have any hangups over murdering people. "It's just business." Also, no blueballs.

2. Funny cast. Personalities and backgrounds are a bit cliche, but their interactions (and sheer craziness) are a treat to read.

... more>> 3. We have a protagonist with limited strength but is very good at utilizing it - exact opposite of most JP main characters.

Cons:

1. VERY Frequent grammatical errors. Not enough to make the story unreadable, but they are serious eyesores. Some members proofread and offer corrections in the comments, but the TLs don't respond to these comments or apply the changes. This is confusing...

2. The Translator's Notes of some chapters are inserted right after the relevant sentences, instead of being in footnote form. This can break immersion, especially when the translators are just joking around instead of explaining or offering alternative interpretations.

3. One arc has an "Idiot Ball" moment that made me facepalm, but nothing too drastic.

Spoiler

Really, Shizuru, you weren't suspicious at all of a little girl who can steal a knife from under your nose and move like a genius killer? No, wait. You actually were suspicious for a while, but immediately dismissed the possibility because she's a little girl. How have you not learned that appearances can be deceiving when you have Elizabeth in your team? God.

Absolutely worth a read.

MC is surronded by pretty OP characters but he himself is fairly normal, relying on strategy, planning and knowledge. He is pretty OP as a doctor tho, possesing first-rate healing magic.

MC is a first-rate assassin but dislikes his dark life and would much rather just use his healing magic to work as a doctor. But unfortunatley you cant leave the organization once your in or you will be removed. MC does get along well with his partners in crime, even though they all have quite excessive personalities.

So... more>> far the story hasn't really revealed the overall plot och goal so can't say much about that. The MC is a little bland but atleast he's not dense. He also get quite a bit of off-panel loving, even using his body to seduce his female assassination targets (again, only off-panel so far). In general he uses the favorable opinion that almost everyone has of him to make them lover their gard. <<less

It's a slice of life about psychopathic assassins. However, the author clearly didn't intend for it to be a slice of life novel. Every chapter is about someone's backstory, and the story and characters never develop.

This is pretty damn good. Caught up to chapter 17. Even though it's a transported to a different world tag you seem to forget about that early on, the fantasy setting is there and it works well! I love the MC, definitely not your typical one. The harem is mature in a sense, there's only one that's love dovey with MC-kun but the others still get some spotlight.

People die all the time in this novel and sometimes I kind of liked the characters too, but it's a good read. If you're looking for xxx scenes, there aren't any. They're just implied. Setting, while it's another isekai genre there isn't much reference as he lost his memories.

I do love me some dark comedy, and this has plenty of it. The MC's relationship with all the other side characters is absolute gold, especially the other assassin's in his squad.

I was at first hesitant when I saw the harem tag. Don't get me wrong, I am not one to shy away from stories that involve harems, it's just a fact that more often than not I find myself distraught over how they usually end up portraying the female characters with one single characteristic that is eventually replaced with... more>> "superduper loves the MC". This is not the case in AnBM. And also, the harem is not really the main point of the story either. It's just a bunch of messed up people in a messed up situation doing messed up stuff. If anything the harem is there to lighten the mood with some laughs at how absurdly these people display their affections.

It's also quite refreshing to see an Isekai story that doesn't involve an MC that is absurdly OP. Instead he is surrounded by OP people, and is very cunning and uses words and emotions to sway people rather than a dagger or a sword.

There is very little I can say is negative about the story so far. It's far too early to complain about world building, but I am hoping that the world opens up more in the next arcs, since all we have seen so far is one section of the city and nothing has really been mentioned about the rest of the world out there. <<less

A story of broken people brought together by fate as a part of an assassin guild. It is dark, bloody, and realistic (as far as fantasy genre allows for). Novel itself is well written, there's a refreshing lack of clichés and crutches that one might come to expect from Japanese web novels. It's hard to call characters unique, but at the very least they are not bland. Some of them are even memorable. In all honesty, it's pretty hard for me to single out things to praise this novel for... more>> and I can't find anything negative to say about it, so in my eyes it makes it good and wholesome. Give it a read, you probably won't be disappointed. <<less

Wow, something with isekai tag turned out to be a dark story about assassination and crime guild.

Don't be fooled by the harem tag; it's not its main point. This story is about a bunch of misfits with messed up head, joining an assassin guild and doing their job. The MC often acts like a beta, but turn into totally alpha if needed. The early chapters are like a compilation of introduction about each character, and it might be boring for some of you, but I hope you keep reading because... more>> so far, the story is enjoyable imo. <<less

This novel really suprised me since I usually like my MC's to be OP in some ways. In this case the MC is actually fairly weak, he is an assassin but his greatest power is healing, he hates being an assassin but has no choice.

MC want's to run away but is unable to because when he first transfered into the world he was picked up by one of the worlds strongest, and probably the strongest assassin and she owns him.

So trying to run is a big no no. The story... more>> mostly revolves around how the MC hates what he does but has no other choice but doing it.

The MC also has a special power that makes people like him. Especially for females who are a bit crazy since he is able to easily slip into and fill their empty void inside.

Thus for the assassination group the leader uses him as the glue that keeps them all together, which is a big reason why he's not allowed to leave, the leader is also crazily in love with him but she places her ideals and pride above all else so she wouldn't hesitate in killing him if he goes against her wishes, but he is still used as a "reward" for the other members because sharing is caring :D.

Now for some heavy spoilers from the WN just to show how dark the story can be and go give some context, also not sure if this is or will be included in the rewrite.

Spoiler

During one of their assassinations they capture one of their targets, to get some information.
The MC who is in charge of the interogation, discovers through magic that it is his own sister that is captured. The MC however while sad kills her without hesitation after getting the information. As she dies his sisters memories returns and we the readers find out.

That the reason why the MC is in this world is because of his big sister. The MC while in our world had the same likable thing about him and everyone loved and doted on him. Jealousy gripped his sister and she lured her naive little brother towards the mountain edge close to where they lived. She then pushed him off the cliff, since anyone who fell off the cliff would mysteriously dissapear.

We then learn that falling of said cliff would take one into the other world and one would be blessed by one of the gods and thus gain magical powers. You need a blessing to use magic as a human. But the price for comming into this new world was all thier memories.

Sometime later guilt gripped his sister and as an act of atonement and a small wish of finding her brother the sister also jumped of the cliff and then while dying at the hands of her little brother she remembers everything.

[collapse]

On a side note the story is a bit slow at first since the first 20 or so chapters are spent on world building and introducing the stories characters, the story switches viewpoints a lot so while there is a MC his assassination squad takes up almost as much space in the story as the MC so give it time and the story will prove that your time was well invested in my honest opinion. <<less
