Bannou “Murazukuri” Cheat de Otegaru Slow Life ~Mura desu ga Nani ka?~


Links are NOT allowed. Format your description nicely so people can easily read them. Please use proper spacing and paragraphs.

In these troubling times, Luke, the son and heir of the lord of the land, turned twelve and received a Gift. Unfortunately, it was a Gift useless in combat called [Village Building]. To make matters worse, his step-brother was the one blessed to inherit their father’s [Master Swordsmanship]. And so, their positions were completely reversed.

Luke was then banished to an uninhabited wasteland. There, his mysterious Gift activated and instantly made a village. He thus prepared himself to live modestly in this tiny village of his. Or so he thought. As the population of his village grew and grew, his Gift got stronger and stronger until it evolved.

Before he knew it, his [village] had tall buildings everywhere and had the strongest army. His village became the best there was…!

“Wait, can this still be called a village? And what happened to the slow life I’m supposed to have…?”

From the minute a parent banishes his otherwise talented and decent son for not being overwhelmingly powerful in combat, you should understand that there will be no decent character-building. Having a "system" and "talents decided at birth" means the world-building will be suspect at best, and of course you can expect people with the right talents to show up in the village at the right time.

Otherwise it's just a normal protagonist with a really powerful ability who was banished and immediately shows off his skills and gathers a harem... more>> (there's no tag right now, but there will definitely be a harem. There's always a harem) and becomes successful and probably saves the world without even trying while the people who banished him fall into ruin. It just has a town-building flavor taking any [time] or [effort] out of the "building" part, so it can focus on the more important scenes of everyone praising the protagonist.

The rating is 3 because it's not offensively bad at what it does. <<less

It's a very very very convenient story for the MC.

Don't be confused by the "slow" part in the name, this isn't paced as a "slow slice-of-life" novel where you see extended scenes of pleasantries and warm moments or the MC living leisurely with his companions, or even explanations of how things get built and how the integration of new villagers transpired, I would change the "slow" to "easy".

If anything I was taken aback by the pacing because this novel is very fast.

This novel haves too much "hand waving" that leaves... more>> things as "whatever, just accept it", to the point that it loses any kind of "Kingdom building" that fans of that genre would seek out in this kinds of stories.

So... it's not for the "slice-of-life" lovers, it's not for the "Kingdom building" readers... there is no cooking, no contrived set pieces of dread or action scenes, no drama, no real character development...

Who's the target audience for this novel?

I think it's aimed at the people that find enjoyment out of the "Tsukkomi" act between the characters...

Because all the set ups and plot points are veered towards a punch line.

And it's a bit inconsistent, the jokes are sometimes funny, sometimes not, sometimes you miss it completely... but it's all there.

It seeks enjoyment by making fun of the common fantasy/medieval settings and measuring them up to modern living standards, while at the same time not explaining anything in too much detail.

So it all comes down to your particular taste in humor.

I find it funny tbh, it's lighthearted, there isn't really much outside of the jokes, some devices that are there just to make some future dread that is just in the background and aren't really a problem because everything is just too easy for the MC.

So I would say that you need to peek inside and see if you enjoy the humor because that's all it's got going for.

It's not "bad" it's just that the focus is very niche, so read a few chapters, if you're not laughing, drop it, simple as that. <<less

The story could get a 3 considering the setting. But the MC turns it into a 2 with his personality and mindset. Indeed he's an actual kid and literally acts like one during the whole story, but that also turns the story into a joke. His easygoing attitude becomes more annoying the more I read it. Wars happen and thousands fight, but literally no one dies and everyone is forgiven regardless of being bandits or enemy invaders.

I uncharacteristically, gave it a lot of time and chance so that he grows... more>> old enough and the story enters serious mode, but enough is enough. It's clear it will remain like this till the end. Dropped. <<less

The story is pretty mediocre, there is a distinct lack of detail, and very sparse worldbuilding. Characters are flat, and everything that happens is very convenient for the main character to the point of disbelief.

The impression I get from the author is that they put very little thought into the story. Besides characters and events conforming to basic tropes, there isn't much nuance to it.

Its okay if you have nothing else to read, or want a junk food like literature with harem building and kingdom building stuff. Otherwise if you... more>> want something of a similar genre, there are other alternatives that in my opinion give a superior experience like Release the Witch. <<less

A word to describe this story would be "mediocre" nothing new, nothing old. The world building and the character development is almost non-existent, with little to no depth to the story riddled with plot holes. The story is basically about MC building stuff out of thin air with no explanation, attracting op people to his village and his city becomes the greatest in the world. Don't waste your time on this story unless you have a lot of time to spare.

Very simplistic writing style and fairly shallow character development. Seems very much like a schoolboy wrote this. Saying that, it can be enjoyed as light hearted entertainment. It's fun to read about the MC's gift and how the story develops.

It's a fun simple SoL JP novel. The main difference is the MC doesn't immediately rush rice/soy sauce. Surprisingly that's enough to make this feel fresh and fun. I'd recommend it for a light hearted novel.

Though through the romance you would think the MC had ED/mental disability. I'm glad they dropped those jokes because it was painful.

It's actually have a decent city building at 1st arc, but MC became way too OP and this story became comedy novel (at least for me) and there'll be major change within WN and LN from the information author provided:

... more>>

MC from 1st arc and 2nd arc is someone with minimum knowledge about management well he is the son of a noble and all, but suddenly from arc 3 to matching the content of LN, MC is like Procell from maou machizukuri who have knowledge about modern technology with difference that MC is aware he is reincarnated but only the knowledge

Read up to current raws: it's an okay-ish story, but there are better ones. The MC is a pacifist Japanese MC in a world full of violent idiots, that gets handed a bunch of plot conveniences, particularly with all of the villagers that show up being grateful hidden gems. It's okay as a casual wish fulfillment sort of story, but don't expect any serious territory/city development as the MC's cheat is OP to the point that he doesn't have to care.
