so far it's interesting, slow paced, and heading in a good direction. Ill probably update my rating further down the road, but it's not about killing the demon king or saving the princess. So far it's just about an adventurer, starting retirement and living his life.

translator-san is doing an immaculate job as well. So, props to them~

When you see a the title it should explain the pacing of the story very well.

Read it and see what I mean, it not like the fast pace light novels we see around here. It is a slow story with light world building with a MC who was mainly an adventurer. So get ready for a slow R-18 story.

I love slow stories so my rating maybe a bit bias.

A simple and nice slice of life novel about retired adventurer.

The author used earlier chapters to build the setting for this story, so for people who prefer action scene, it might seems boring to you. The story is mainly about MC's relationship with the people in that village, and his blooming affection to one of the young girl.

So far I don't see any indication about harem, which is a nice change from the usual template. Their love is so pure and innocent I puked sand and punched the wall to... more>> regain my masculinity.


Ch36 and above might contain slightly lewd scenes. <<less

A nice relaxing and calming story. As the title suggests it is a very slow paced story. An A-ranked adventurer decided to retire and moved to a remote village he visited once."

If you are looking for action this is not for you.

This is a slow pace story as the name imply "Slow Living". The story is a about a retire A-rank Adventure who want to go back at the place that he witness 9 years ago and live there. He want to settle down and live a peaceful live. Therefore don't expect action scene from the start. But I don't imply that there is none in the future.

A slow life novel... with some very sugary romance.

Also a bit lewd later

Chapter 36 cough cough


If you’re looking for a cunning, badass, or player/harem-bastard MC, look somewhere else as there ain’t one here.

It’s not a novel for everyone, but give it a chance if slow living novels interests you.

Exactly what it says on the title, A ranked dude enjoying retirement life on the countryside village. No action whatsoever so far, much to my disappointment. I mean, it has A ranked on its title. Instead we have him enjoying some food, then enjoying some scenery, and bath, and things. It's already 9 chapters, just do something interesting.

Even for slice of life standards this novel feels really dull. Don't get me wrong, there's nothing offensively bad about it but at the same time there's nothing spectacular either. Nothing really happens and the MC just lives his life plainly, which is the problem here. It's just that this novel has no "hook" or something that makes me want to keep reading. Him being an A-ranked adventurer means almost nothing and at the end of the day it feels like I'm just reading the diary of villager A. Maybe... more>> this kind of thing is enjoyable to some but personally I see no real reason to continue reading it. <<less

It is on the slow side but it does a wonderful job presenting that picturesque slow life style that the MC wants so much.

I think it's important to be able to appreciate the slow stuff too. I highly recomend it to anyone in the mood to slow things down.

Really cute and fun. More slice of life and slow paced, there's barely any action at all. But I enjoyed it a lot and it's great to see that the author isn't afraid of progressing things.

It's not bad for a novel. I only have 2 complaints. The first is that this is starting to look like it may go into a harem direction which I really don't want considering the current character development. The second complaint is that there is the ero content in the novel, to me it just doesn't fit given the tone and mood of the story. It's way too explicit given the way the story has been written. To me, it feels like a jump from suddenly PG->R. More importantly, I... more>> would say about 10-15% of this novel is erotic now.

Other than that, it's a nice slice of life story. <<less
