By reading so far the only I can say is MC play so fu**ing bu*l s**t game for a long time. The most interesting point in this novel is it is just the normal template but I don't see any foundation for example what the world state is in, state of mind of the people (I am questioning because properly educated little noble girl obsess so much with stranger old guy). The only one I am certain of with is this novel show how OP MC is. Ahaha it is... more>> so much disappointing to the point of interesting. LOL <<less

I just started reading however I have no idea how to feel about what I read so far.

I don’t think the author understands how games or their fan base work and it throws me off. If this is going to be a good novel it will based on character driven dynamics.

This novel may induce nerd rage. Ex: character cast a spell that destroys goblins with the force of a black hole, vaporizing them, but their magic cores are unharmed because they’re harder than diamonds?

It’s like a 13 year old wanted... more>> to describe a cool battle scene but forgot to look up the definitions of the words they used. <<less

Not going to lie... I have read several novels with similar plot intro' as this story but I will be honest when I say I like this one best.... it just... flows right for me. like the MC doesn't take 40 freakin years to realize what's going on, he has an IQ of over 45, KNOWS what he wants to do and while he 'wants to be inconspicuous' he knows when to ope a can of woop A and when to purchase a ticket for the Pain Train. and there... more>> isn't any pansy "i can't hurt it cause it might be sentient" that realistically no 'human' would have as, I'm sorry but, as a species we will murder are own family for money, food, secrets you name it

Now then dislikes:story is fast paced, that's fine, would however like some fill-in chapters; translation is slow BUT it's way better than a lot of others that only put out a chapter a month; it gives me mild romantic expectations which you would think is good but very few translations are ever actually finished <<less

Very enjoyable so far. Character's feel fairly well developed over the first couple of chapters. MC knows what he wants and isn't your typical clueless isekai character. The Student seems interesting as well as the duke as well.

Will be a fun story & hope translation speed will increase.

Please Author San, please stop. Like other reviewers have stated. The MC says he is one thing, then acts in the opposite way. Examples: ... more>>

"I'm not going to get involved in politics"-trains the Duke's family, positioning them to become unmatched powerhouses; "I don't care about other people"-tells a bunch of dudes stealing a sword that it will break when used; "I need a job"-doesn't even look to teach anyone else after being told his teaching is transformative

Do a majority of Japanese people lie to themselves like these characters do. This isn't the only novel that does this, but this may be one of the most anoying ones.

Besides the previous flaws, there is so much wasted time/words on useless garbage. I stuck it out trying to see if it would get better, but it got worse instead. Gave up at chapter 25. <<less

First, author have a good grasp on what he want to write.

Second, pacing and story flow are very good.

Third, author tend to portray how bad something was but contradict what happens next in the story.

... more>> Fourth, author tend to compare real world standard and political stand point that he use it to push his own point of view/idea to his readers. Which is a big no for a fictional made up story.

I want to give it a 3 stars but author pushing his own ideals to readers make me remove 1 star as it is a fiction story not a news article. <<less

Just picked this up the other day, as I'm a Cheat Novel fan, I love when the MC is overpowered to oblivion (don't judge me!). So far it seems to be following a lot of the traits. MC dies, reincarnated into another world that has a similar world system to a game that he, coincedentally, is one of the top players in.

Thank god someone TL'ing this series. A battle crazed ossan who wants to live ordinary live. He wants a slow life by farming. In this hectic world, this ossan would be known as the strongest Wiseman. He change the world concept of magic instantly with his gaming knowledge. As the world was so similar with the VRMMORPG that cost him his life. Met the battle junkie ossan, spartan training ossan, DT ossan, mad magic tools researcher, he farm mandragoras and raising fighting chickens (even adventurers started training with the chickens)...... more>> he is a crazy but childish sage with powers that can destroy a country.


he built a super lawnmower that flew and gone rampage around the world, saving many people who encounter the lawnmower...


... with his game skills, the strongest sage walks the path of farming..... no.. its not another farming story.

The MC is someone who says something and does something far from what he said.

He likes complain and curse a lot.

He says he don't want to influence the world too much. And is very responsible.

... more>> But he improved the former archdukes already powerful magic because the former archduke asked him, thus shifting the balance between the archdukes.

Further he helped the archdukes knight to power level.

Then he promised his student highest level items for completing their homework, and he is providing it knowing full well one of them is going to become a war mage. <<less

The protagonist has incredible power, but all he wants to do is be a farmer. I won't say that's a bad goal, but I can't relate with it. The protagonist wants to have a family, but I have not seen any romance or real attempts at romance yet. The age of the protagonist limits romance options.

If you enjoyed "The Wizard Raised Through TRPG is Still the Strongest in the Other World", and the lack of ambition of this protagonist does not bother you, then you will probably enjoy this novel.

I might be a bit biased because I'm currently translating it, but if you want to read a fantasy isekai but from the perspective of a 40y.o unemployed japanese man, and not the typical virgin, naive, horny on main MC; then do give it a read.

i just like how the MC not using a patern that he is somehow lived in the deep mountain instead he use a reason he want to retire and seek peacefull life even he is not there before. An op MC but he cover it with a reason to seek peacefull life. Not a pacifist but rationalist I think. And the romance so so.

For these 6 chapters from the novels I read so far, well, it portrays differently from the manga (I read first).

I like the MC 'cause he's mature (really, just imagined if you're on that age and "tried" to not make much a hassle)

Until this far, the story progressed well, not much absurdity, but still decorated with fictions. This is a new refreshing novel to read for me

I hope there's another translator who will pick this up, cause silverlining seems to drop this project

It's just bad overall. All characters were simpleminded, ultra OPTIMISTIC, and lacking uniqueness. The plot is very weak, a bland mix mash of various JP generic isekai. Everyone just praises the MC in every corner when he shows off a little and said how he's so great that no one can be compared to.

Banters between MC and other characters were super awkward with dry humor, very amateurish writing. There's a bit of plot hole regarding MC massive magic pool when he mentions he will run out of mana in multiple... more>> contexts. And as other reviewers said, MC explanation/complaint in regard to politics doesn't make sense or maybe lost in translation. <<less

I wasn't sure about this story at first, but after 15 chapters or so it's slowly starting to come around. The story is a pretty typical for the genre, but the characters are becoming well developed instead of the usual cookie cutter tropes that many authors seem to push and the author blends in just enough comedy into to make it enjoyable. If I had any knock to give it so far is that the MC seems to go off on random tangents from time to time pushing his real... more>> world views onto readers, but they aren't that common and if you ignore them then its building up to be a good story. Well worth the read. <<less

Enjoyed reading this. Thank you Silver lining for translating this. With only few chapters out, it's unreasonable to judge the plot. I did personally enjoy the rationale of the protagonist after he realized the consequences of his actions. The romance so far is alright. The translation quality is great, I didn't have any immersion breaking issues with the translation.
