Hmmm, subpar series only read if you're bored. It's not bad/atrocious but it also don't have advantage with it's peers on the same genre. It's... forgetable, to be honest I'm just reading it when I'm bored and I often forget the storyline and characters since it's not memorable...

The title is a sham, even if the MC is a summoner, it never becomes anything important. When people hear summoning skills pretty sure they will expect the user to summon various creatures to do the attack, but in this series the MC... more>> just whacks the enemies with meele weapon... plus he is SO MUCH STRONGER than his 'summons', what's the point of 'summoning skill' then...? To make things worse, the MC making contracts with normal humans as summon so they're basically never being summoned at all since they're always materializing like normal party members. The MC almost never "summon" anything in the whole series lol, scratch that, he only used summoner skill once in the whole 300+ chapters... <<less

If I could, this would have ranked 1 out of 10.

The idea was great, cliche but, it sounded interesting.

What made me rank this so low, is that it's so boring. Plain and simple. Boring.

No character development, and in the description "steadily" leveling, that's a lie. He was lv 1 then 2 one moment, then few chapters later, suddenly he's like 17. The writer didn't even bother writing about his leveling progress. Did not even bother mentioning how many days has passed or whatever, you'll be reading "Slime quest done, level... more>> 2 now!" then next chapter "MC lv 17 meets typical arrogant adventurer". You have no idea what happened in between, cause the writer never wrote it.

Do not read it, unless you're really bored and don't mind reading something boring. <<less

I'll be honest the plotline isn't that great and the series translation has been passed around more than my sister which is really annoying for people like me who want to binge until the latest chapter, and the translations themselves are pretty crappy.

I'll make this review short and sweet, it's pretty bad. The main concepts of this story are really great if we're being honest here, it's the execution that's problematic. The translation is pretty bad (for chapters 13-18 they had a real translator working on this series, but now they moved to machine translation or something like it without a proofreader/editor), and the translators website is rather annoying (since they don't have a link to the next chapter which means that you have to go back to novelupdates to go onto... more>> the next chapter). Both of these issues make it really difficult to continue to read this series, as it becomes a huge amount of effort to understand even a single sentence. If you're going to use a machine to translate, you better have the best dang proofreader working for you so that they can make the translation readable. <<less

MC is not strong willed and easily getting manipulated even though he is OP. The story is pretty fast paced. If you want details on character's background, plots, world building, etc. This novel is not right for you. This is just another one of many ordinary novels about OP otherworlder. This was written by an amateur with no unique ideas to attract the readers.

i was kind of looking forward to this, considering that the synopsis promised a battle maniac MC which is an uncommon sight. I am however disappointed and had proceeded to drop this from my reading list. Overall: It is too lax. The descriptions and story writing in general are not fleshed out. The plot skips and dodges forward momentum of a story, with not even a glimmer of foreshadowing. It gives you stereo-typical RPG world logic and expects you to accept it. (Like say an angel being promoted to a... more>> guardian deity of sorts). Not only that the story explicitly reminds you that not only is the MC a cheat, the rest of the world is nerfed into noobness with no chance of parole. Unlike "Overlord" in this regard or the other Strong from the start novels, the author mixed in Weak? To strong elements in the story. This not only ephasized the MC's OPness but makes him even more OP later on. Final say: Don't bother <<less

Honestly, it's a mediocre Isekai series. The biggest problem currently is the translation. All current translations range from MTL to bad. With a better translation and some editing, I think people who like Isekai novels would enjoy it. To draw in readers, a serious translator needs to redo pretty much the whole thing. I don't think this is necessarily a bad series, but I don't think it's good enough to attract a translator that would do it justice when they could spend their time on other, better novels.

To be fair,... more>> I like Isekai novels and I want to continue reading this one. With some translations, even if they aren't great, you can still piece together what's going on. With the current translator you get lines like "This is not the ratio of the previous speed!" (citation ch 34 for reals). Could you imagine ever saying that to someone else in real life? If the translator had an editor who spoke English as a native language that would never fly.

Long and short, I think this would be a fairly good mindless Isekai story to read if the translation allowed. Until then, unless you have nothing else to read, there's probably better Isekai nonsense to read. <<less

The translation starting to come back and I'm glad to that.

Although need more work on editing. Its a promising story that carries around.

Actual goal for protagonist is just like others that want a peaceful days but plot gets thick. As this story revolves around troublesome countries and troublesome people.

... more>> The series of this novel in LN Illustrations is super cool and awesome than other isekai stories I have seen.

This is where it goes where Summoners is presumably weak in other novels but here ridiculously strong. For MC that is an exception since he's from Earth and received cheat-like abilities upon coming to another world.


There are otherworlders like him since those seated in official position or have a skill that can identify a person stats. The protagonist was not careful on his first day in a town/city, a beginner town/city and he was identified by the Guild Chief/Master. Abruptly the guild head is not all about power/corruption but wants a peaceful security and state so he made a deal for the protagonist and he accept it without incidents of his identity being exposed.


Skills as it is beneficial and potential danger.


Comparing to Heroes that recently summoned by your usual type of Empire that does work on influence and power. MC is incredibly far stronger than them since unlike summoning. His present situation is reincarnation and given acquired skills and power that far beyond of Heroes norm. An illustration demonstrate that a Summoner like him can dealt 1 on 1 to a silver-haired female swordsman that seem an elite or maybe a Hero via summoned. His Summoned creatures given time that increasing is in comparison as a total sweeping disaster on the whole continent he is. Especially Melfina, the first one as his subordinate is a goddess that can unleashed power beyond.


Like I said need more work on editing. This is a promising story in another world adventure! <<less
