Blade Skill Online: With Trash Job ‘Summoner’, Weakest Weapon ‘Bow’, and Rotten Stat ‘Luck’, I Rise to Be the ‘Last Boss’!

Description

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

Our MC, Yuri [裕理], always has dead look in his eyes because of his too frequent encounter with misfortunes. One day, he comes up with the idea that his luck may take a turn for the better if he maxes out his Luck stat in the world of VRMMO, and so he steps into the game world under the name Yuri [ユーリ].

He chooses ‘Summoner’ as his job and ‘Bow’ as his weapon—hailed as the strongest of their kind on the game’s strategy guide site—and is raring to go on an adventure, but… they turn out to be the worst job and weapon in the game?!

Furthermore, Yuri also comes to learn that the pure Luck build is ridiculed for being useless in battles. With the triple bad choices (plus the fact that his avatar is a beautiful girl because he picked the option of Random Character Generator!) Yuri falls into despair.

This is an adventure diary of Yuri who will eventually rise to become a player who is known as ‘Raid Boss’, ‘Wild Last Boss’, ‘Why Does a Beginner Weapon Do More Damage Than the Strongest Weapon?!’, and ‘Please Don’t Let the Hidden Boss Wander Around in the Wild!’.

It's unclear where this story will end up long term. Some stories have great starts and fizzle out or drag on. Others have bad starts but get really good as time goes on.

This series starts well, and is consistent keeps going strongly forward.

The synopsis:

... more>>
Spoiler

Set primarily within the new VRMMO game that is going live, the main character, Yuri, seeks to live a comfortable, easy going life in the game to escape the woes of his life. So he chooses his job (summoner) and weapon (bow) after careful consideration, based on what the strategy guide from the beta said were the most popular and strongest.

And because Yuri has comically bad luck in real life, he seeks to escape that in game and invests all his initial stat points into luck.

Due to the limited facial character customization and his high luck stat, Yuri opts to go with the random generation which has a chance to more greatly alter the appearance.

And then... Yuri quickly finds everything went awry. Instead of making his appearance more masculine, the random character generator made him a beautiful girl. Summoner and bow were actually the weakest, the strategy guide was edited by a troll, and Yuris bad luck had him read it before it was corrected. And Luck stat is considered a tr*sh stat, and archery is dependant on the skill of the player, not rng.

And with 0 strength, the only Bow Yuri can use, is the beginner bow, which is basically a toy bow. Meanwhile summoner can work OK, but essentially requires the character to solo the enemy for a low chance of taming it. But summoner only has skills that work on tamed monsters.

So Yuri essentially ends up with the opposite of what he wanted, a useless character that looks nothing like he had wanted. But he optimistically decides to make the most out of what he got, and see if he can't make it work.

And the story from there becomes very entertaining as Yuri learns to make the most of his limited abilities. The phrase
Spoiler

"If you strike me down, I shall become more powerful than you can imagine"

[collapse]
, is very fitting to the character.

I read a ton of stories all the time, to the point they sometimes just blend together as they are basically the same thing. This story stays distinct and memorable with its energy and humor.

There are better written stories out there, but this one is done pretty well, and is FUN to read. It's also broadly a palate cleanser, as things like the female avatar/GB being used for good comedic effect, rather than horny or psychological effects.

This series doesn't take itself super seriously, it is just there to have fun. Give this story a shot, and enjoy the chaos. <<less

If you like bofuri you're gonna like this. This novel is that but instead of going all in on defense and shields. The MC goes for luck, bows, and summoner class, which is "The worst character combination" to the player base. If you read this your gonna have to put up with a determined person ready to do whatever he can to keep using his combination.

Overall, I am loving the novel so far and I hope it continues to be as great as it has been so far.

This is actually a really comedic novel. The basis of it being circumstantially out of the norm and the happy go lucky attitude that the MC embodies does wonders for the story. I would not say this is extremely good but its not terribad either. The only reason im not giving this a 5/5 is that I'm worried about the inevitable crash that the story may go through later on. Of course im hoping it does not crash and continue to perform well but thats all I can hope for... more>> really. <<less

This novel takes several overdone tropes and injects a healthy dose of chaos and humor into them, turning what could have been just another copy/paste generic slog of unoriginal ideas into a genuinely enjoyable read that frankly handles some of those ideas better than their origins. It doesn't take itself too seriously, but at the same time it avoids devolving into a boring novel that's all fluff and no substance. This is the best read I've had in a while, and I highly recommend it to anyone looking for something... more>> lighthearted and fun. <<less

This novel is basically the reason I don't auto-skip novels of the "everyone thought it was the worst but it was the best" type.

I read it 2 years ago on syosetsu before it went on hiatus and never knew it came back and got finished, so my memory might be beautified, but the most important thing is that the novel never took itself seriously even though the characters were very serious and hot-blooded. I normally dislike misunderstandings but the main character only looks like a girl in-game and often forgets... more>> that fact, so I can enjoy the hijinks instead of facepalming at the s*upidity. There's some s*upidity too but I've played enough MMOs that I'd be more surprised if more than a handful of players were smart.

Like any comedy YMMV, but this was memorable in a good way for me. <<less
