Maybe I'm reading a different version or its the difference between ln/wn but one of the reviews proved its spoilers false so far.

... more>>

I like the adversity the MC faces. He stayed ugly, and that proves to be a hindrance. He was initially found suspicious and thrown into prison despite doing nothing. Nobody likes him at first glance. And I think that's great.

When he partied up, it was basically with a guy with his harem. And that harem was already taken for. There were no initial chemistry with the girls and the MC. That's realistic. After their first mission together, their viewpoint of the MC changes into respect.

That turns on its face with one of the girls when tanaka basically goes spouting cool anime lines to one of the girl when fighting the wyverns and dragon and protecting her.

After she proclaims her love for the MC, she stops seeing the ikeman and actively pursues the MC wholeheartedly. She didn't go and have s*x with anyone else after that.

The other girl basically left the ikeman as well after that and went on the path of being a jpop idol after discovering that she wants everyone's love. She remains is a sl**.

Afterwards, he starts gets loli harem candidates. But backs off one of them as one of his friend wants to pursue her.

The lolis aren't the problem. His attitude towards killing isn't a problem. It's his monologue that's disgusting. I don't have a problem with him liking little girls but He goes loli this and loli that and it wears you out. He also gives disrespectful labels to the girls in his mind. He also thinks of ero while fighting and even contemplated guro when his allies were being chopped.

What is also annoying is his virgin fetish. Initially, he was ready to go to a brothel but he didn't have the money. Somewhere along the way his standards went up

I like this novel that's why I'm giving this 5-star. But I think of not going to continue reading this. I always have mixed feelings every chapter and I don't know why. I have a weak heart so I think not continue reading this is good for me. But really, for me, it's a good novel.

Actually if you take this serie as a typical isekai you will find it boring at first, I mean it's about an ugly old guy struggling to **** a virgin xD. If you just want to read something new where MC doesn't get every single girl he exchange 2 words you would like this serie, it starts a little slow (and pervert) but as the series advances it gets better and better, pretty comical actually.

Some people just yell Netorare without eve read the serie, first of all:

  • Netorare (NTR) means MC loses his/her lover for someone.
  • Cheating means MC's lover have an affair with someelse (no feelings required).
  • Netori means MC steals someone's else lover.
... more>>

It's not netorare as Knight had a threesome with his girfriend and their friend.

It's not netori as MC didn't steal Knight's girlfriend she just fell in love with him, MC did'nt even try it.

@G.L.A.S.T.I.V.A. He engages to sophie but just to save Allen to get executed (Esther's father finds out about their relationship)

Tanaka will engages again (love this time) but under some special conditions.

I only have a few things to say.

First of all this novel is fantastic. Ignore all those mediocre and repetitive plots and stories you've read. Enjoy a new and fresh mix of comedy, cringe, disappointment and hard to swallow hatred for this MC. You'll hate him at 30% but you'll be laughing and loving him at 300% in the middle of the story.

Honestly I demand that the translator speeds up the translation. I'll gladly donate for a novel of this kind.

... more>>

Of course there's no harem. OR IS THERE?

Of course the MC wouldn't get the girl at the end of the day. OR WILL HE?

MC is ugly. But it might change to WAS.

I have mixed feelings towards this novel.

There is a lot of funny and epic plot developments, but there is also plenty unneccesary perverted mumble wich gets old really fast lowering the overall feel of the story.

The more I read, I get even more confused about my feelings towards it, thus the statement of mixed feelings. I think at the moment that 3-4* is about right, 4* for now.

This is terrible, people dont realize they are reading NTR until it's too late. The author should have made clear that it's that kind of story. I really wish I didnt spend time reading this. The parody of the isekai genre falls flat.

Since I cant find this while logged out I assume this review got censored.

You know, its funny how they make fun of him for being an old man. But back on original fantasy stories before Japan took a hold on it, characters on them were over 30 years old. MC were minimun 30 (25 pushing it).

... more>>

What I did not like about this was the to much whoring. Specially heroine (or heroines) says love the MC but goes ntr around having s*x with other guys without concern in the world; that pisses me off, which is why I hate nymphos. I was cheated on so it reminds me too much of. I can not find pity. Heroine should be exclusive to MC not a wh*** used goods. Even if she or them are not virgins, if it was from a relationship then ok... But it is the result of going off fooling around? Then no thank you. And she will keep going. I do not blame MC for not sleeping with. I my self wouldnt either.

Like others, a bit of a mixed feelings in this.

I don’t mind fighting dirty.

I don’t mind an ugly protagonist. I generally prefer to not read them if it’s ugly + obese + harem. That’s just satisfying a population’s secret desires.

... more>> I don’t mind a novel with no plot.

So, I find this novel not bad. Let me make this clear, the protagonist is a mixture between a 36 year-old virgin and a 16 year-old virgin. He acts relatively modest and nice like how a normal person should. He’s also more tolerable to things too. But then, you can take that as the 36 year-old part or just a really mature and not horny 16 year-old. But he also acts all horny and such. Also, I truly do not like how the protagonist handled Chapter 8. It’s not even about being an underdog or being tolerable or being modest and nice anymore. It’s a different issue.

So, some waitress mess up with her service as a waitress to some noble, like bump into him or something. The noble grabs her and basically needs to “teach” her some respect. Protagonist comes and saves the day. He burns the noble and heals him. Noble leaves and come back and uses the waitress to lure him. And what he does is just walk with him. Noble asks him to do something, he does it. Noble says I’ll pay you, and he goes sure. I like money.

Yeah, it’s one thing to be modest and nice. It’s one thing to be tolerable to certain things, like a drunk fight happens and a chair got thrown into you. It’s an accident. It’s one thing to be an underdog. But it’s another to be spineless. I’ll look forward to future chapters to see if he changes. But I really don’t like it as much anymore.

Yup, I don't really like 9 either. <<less

Want to hate yourself just as much as those NTR novels? Well this is basically the next best thing. Includes your favorite cliche isekai genre that you so love because let's face it you're about to kill yourself after reading this novel or at least that's why your reading to push you over the edge. There's also some generic ***** Japanese protagonist which you can all relate to like you're trying to become the next Jesus and live life for everyone else. Did I mention the fact that this novel... more>> actually lacks real r18 writing?

Honestly the protagonist could have just cured the princess w/o the potion and shouldn't recovery magic technically give back a girls virginity? Either that or maybe think "Time Magic" or "Transformation Magic" instead of flying magic at lvl 55.

Sadly I can't give this novel a 1 because It's meant to be a parody of what losers go through in life never getting over themselves and does it so most of you kept reading it. <<less

An isekai novel except this time the protagonist is a Ugly Bastard. And no this is not a "inner beautiful" kind of ugly bastard. This guy is waaay uglier on the inside compared to his outside. His inner monologues in later chapters get increasingly perverse and sometimes disturbing, the story is written to make you feel disgusted at the MC.

And amazingly, the MC totally agrees with you. The main conflict of the story is that the MC thinks he is a sh*tty person and is always cucking himself. You might... more>> have seen the netorare tag on this story, and yeah its basically the MC handing over girls that are throwing themselves at him, to other guys despite him knowing very well their feelings.

And the person he does like "The heroine" if you will... is as much if not a worse scumbag than he is, gives 0 sh*ts about the MC and constantly fantasizes herself getting gang raped by other random dudes that are not the protagonist.

Overall, the MC is disgusting and he always is in sh*tty situations the enjoyment comes from the readers taking pleasure in the MC being in sh*tty situations.

Its also mainly a comedy. <<less

I give up, obviously the author is a masochist at heart or actually believes people think like the MC. Either way I'm done. If you're reading this review and don't like reading about what the MC in stories is fantasizing about without actually doing anything but fantasizing about what he wants to do to girls but can't because he has some misplaced notion about only having s*x with a virgin for his first time, then don't read this WN. Seriously why? What's the point, there has been no development with... more>> this elixir that will restore his youth, the MC hasn't even bothered to ask why this girl is obsessed with him, if he really didn't want to sleep with her he could just say he wants his first time to be with a virgin. This story has some good points but the author needs to restructure the storyline make the characters more realistic and make some damn progress with what seems to be a big part of this story, which is making the MC young again. For ****s sake we're on V3 and there has been almost no progress. As of right now I'm not going to be reading any more. I'll pick it back up in 6 months or so and see if I can get through anymore but right now it's just too unbelievable that someone would act this way and I read a sh*tload of WN seriously I don't know if yhe author reads these comments because the author isn't the one translating this but I hope they do. <<less

Listen kid, and listen well.

This novel is not for those how like self-inserting as the MC that is kind and nice, becomes OP, uses two swords or a two handed sword, or a nippon stronk katana folded over 1000 times, gets women just by breathing and is the smartest being in the world.

This novel is for those how want to laugh, laugh at Tanaka's misfortunes, laugh at Tanaka's train of toughs, who everything always go wrong in one way or another, how it seems to be that Tanaka is surrounded... more>> by Ikemen and thots. Unlike most of the MC's, Tanaka is not someone how want to save the world, he's not the most virtuous person nor a champion of justice, he's more relatable than your "average japanesse boi"

This is a novel worth reading, you won't miss the hours you spend on it, since you will be too busy enjoying it. Is way better than your average Isekai trash <<less

I liked the book but the devlopment and character development at start I really didnt like much. If you are able to get past the start its a good book guessing it was a new writer. Also the author puts lots of tiny jokes to fill in some gaps which I liked

The perverseness of the author is making this whole thing into a non sense story. I dont have anything against story of that genre but, it seems senseless to me. The whole thing that the MC is a perverted person that always see the whole women populace as nothing more than fap materials was way out in the sense and another is the naming sense of the author, who the heck would name a person a Cyan b***h? And a country called *****? I dont think the MC would get... more>> laid for all he could do is imagining a person as a fapping material and when the woman goes to him he would turn them away, what a load of bull story. Well, it is a lot better than those other stories I read (for the sake of reading) because the manga versions are good and expect the story to be good but there arent any good plot put together in the story. So, a 1 star. <<less

When Reading this novel... please be aware that the MC have a strange fetish:3

Pay attention to MC's action and what he said instead of reading his monologue.

This novel is not to be taken seriously xD.

I was laughing so hard at how absurd is the situation. It was a roller coaster until the end of the story but it will make u go mad in the middle. There are netori and accidental NTR (as in because of accident, MC got NTRed, but in the end, she came back to his side)... more>>


and she didn't had s*x with the guys that stole her as she had a amnesia and she came back to him when she got bacl her memories and loved him even more.


but yea in the end, it was an absurd novel

For example, in a chapter u will see this person acting like a saint, but in the next arc, u see her acting like a b***h, The girl where u have the b***hy 1st impression will be so lovely in the end.

And MC is a pervert in the mind but his action is like a gentlemen, and Misunderstanding is so huge in this xD.

I repeat, pay attention to his actions and what he said instead of what he think about the girls xD


First of all... all girl is perverted in this novel at the beginning which caused MC to have a bad 1st impression of them., and MC yearn for a virgin girl because of this and not a sl**, and he likes to be reverse raped, Which is a strange fetish, he yearn for a virgin girl but wants to be rape xD.

Next, this is a Femdom, he got raped by sl**s, and he was having a complex about that, maybe because he wants a virgin to be his first... thats a harem, the MC is a herbivores but the Girls are good. His mind is hating it but his body is liking it, When reading this novel... pay attention to his actions and words instead of his monologue, he is a good guy in his body language, but a complete sh*t in his monologue xD, I enjoyed the Contrast.

At first the girl was a sl**, but after they fell in love with Tanaka, they changed, and personally I like the fact that they remained loyal to him after they changed.

Those who said that the MC got NTRed are probably those who didnt finish the novel and dropped halfway.

Overall, I give 5 star because of the character development.

August 27, 2017, c12 part3, 4 stars: It's good. Just read what is available in 2017.

... more>>

MC's girl troubles are exaggerated by the early reviewers, at least at this point. He hasn't even been there that long and although he is still a virgin, a harem seems to be forming, possibly. It could reach the point where it would be ridiculous if he did not get laid given that the MC repeatedly states that he wants dat pussi, but it's still early.

The way the healing cheat is used is pretty interesting so far. Better than, say, I Work As A Healer In Another World's Labyrinth City. I still want to see some MC use a Heal Bullet.


The comedy is good and that's all it needs to be better than many Isekai series. Strident's review should lay any other concerns to rest.

December 23, 2018, v4c1 part2, 5 stars: The comedy and MC's thought process carry this novel. I always look forward to reading it. Normies and haters can get BTFO. <<less

Wasn't too bad at the start, but I can't deal with all the sex. If you're like me and don't like to read s*x in novels (if I wanted to read hentai, I would read an h-manga) then this novel is definitely not for you.

Very open sexual relationships throughout the novel, there is no pure or adorable romance to be found here.

As for the MC, he is the typical virgin perverted reincarnated MC. Definitely OP, I can't ever see him losing a serious battle. Has comedic elements, if you don't... more>> mind this type of romance element or ecchi tag, give it a try. <<less
