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

The main character, Shiina Kazuya is killed by a stranger while trying to protect his childhood friend’s younger sister. He was reborn as Cain von Silford, the third son of an Aristocrat, in a world of magic and swords.

Cain will grow up surrounded by Gods who don’t know self-restraint, the nobles of the Kingdom, and young women.

In order to avoid raising any flags, he tries to hide the incredible amount of stats and protections he received from the Gods. This is the royal road fantasy of a boy who is at times two-faced and at times clumsy.

It’s not the worst thing on this site, but it isn’t particularly good. The plot is mostly mediocre with some very bad low points, and the characters are also mostly bland or unlikable. However, it could definitely be worse.

The work itself is a slice of life, but it keeps trying (and failing) to be about global politics, conspiracies, and a shounen hero story. Unfortunately, whenever the story tries to be serious, it is just going to employ another cycle of the MC doing some dumb thing to make some dumb... more>> villain commit suicide by attacking him. Then the MC will whip out his opness and win while everyone praises him.

The slice of life bits are better, but they always seem to be some setup to another “Oh no! MC is breaking common sense again!” joke. But, the author uses that same punchline over and over, and it really doesn’t fit in some cases. So the characters the author uses to make the joke just become a little more unlikable each time. Additionally, the characters are all pretty shallow, and the more screentime they get the less I seem to like them.

If you are able to tune out and enjoy a poorly written, op MC, shallow harem, slice of life/adventure, then this one probably isn’t the worst you could pick. The translation quality is good, and there is a good bit translated and even more raws ready to be. <<less

5/5 for me.

Great translation with frequent updates (as of this post) and a good story to go with it. You can't really ask much more from NU. Well worth a read. That being said this comes with a couple of caveats...

First off you really have to bear with the first 15-30 chapters as it starts out as an MTL. It's not bad for what it is, but its heavily dumbed down and edited. I get why there are a lot of low reviews for that but take them with a... more>> grain of salt if they haven't read past 30 chapters as the translations (and story as a result) get much better the further you read.

Second... this novel is not going to be for everyone. It says right in the description that this is a story about an OP character and that "This is the royal road fantasy of a boy who is at times two-faced and at times clumsy." So if your one of these idiots above giving it 1 star for being exactly what it is then I suggest moving on.

Last but not least the tag on this for romance is a complete scam so if your after romance look elsewhere as well. The translation is 150ish chapters in and the MC is still 10 years old so again if your one of the people that would complain like those comments before this about the lack of romance with a 10 year old... both eww and go elsewhere. <<less

This story doesn't live up to the promise of the early chapters. The gods reincarnated him to being up the civilization level of the world? Nope, that ends with the introduction of a single game. Avoid getting entangled with the king and become an adventurer? Haha, nope, not only can the MC not say no, but apparently the king's job is summoning the MC every other day to complain about how OP he is or for some random inconsequential thing.

The MC will do his best to not stand out, yet... more>> he will famously become an actual noble at a very young age, so all that accomplishes is repeatedly having "that brat is a noble/strongest adventurer?" over and over and over again. Sometimes the same scene will be written from multiple PoVs because apparently that horse hadn't been beaten to death yet.

It's a disappointingly mediocre story where things happen so people can over react to the MC. This includes all the girls that get engaged to the MC. They're there purely for reaction value and get no character development or a chance to show any charm points. If it's not that, it's everyone in the story complaining to the MC about all sorts of worthless things. Very little comedy, fun, adventure or development to be found. <<less

Terrible! Dumb MC and cannot make his own decision. He can't even argue or refuse. He's viewed highly by gods but there's really nothing excellent about him, maybe except that he's helpful, nothing more.

Romance? No romance! Just because he's strong, women will selfishly demand marriage and he can't even say no. Crap story. He just collect wives. He's also like a s*ave. If people around him, mostly women, told him to do this, he will do it regardless how unreasonable the request.

Plot: 1.5/5 (generic plot)

Character: 0.5/5 (Absolutely no character!... more>> They are like puppets. They are like dead people for me. You can't tell their own personality because it is not shown.)

Harem: tr*sh. They just known for an hour and they will be engaged the next hour. I bet the first two girls didn't even experience menstration yet.

The novel seem like an inner fantasy. I feel like I read the desire of the writer.

Ahhh terrible book. <<less

The story is poorly written.

... more>>

firstly his death was pointless and he did not even save anybody (he fought the robber head-on and got cut because of his s*upidity, even if he did nothing no one would have gotten hurt)

He is brought into the "other world" medieval with magic and no a single game or entertainment with gets conquered with just reversi.

The world is for some reason build upon the rules of an rpg and the MC stats grow 10.000x as fast and as strong as ordinary people because of "blessing from all 7 gods" all action skills and magic can be learned with just the blessing so he does not need to put in any effort.

MC is brain-dead and does not have common sense nor does the world when dealing with the MC.

Apostle and representative of gods the saint has to bow before a mere king of a country which would fall into ruin if not for MC solving a world shocking crisis every year. MC as "sub-god" has to do menial labor and trivial task.

In order to raise any and all flags, he fails to try to hide the incredible amount of stats and protections he received from the Gods instantly to both his family the king, guild master and several other people. This is the royal road fantasy of a boy who is at times two-faced (dumb and dumber with an uncontrollable murderous madness) and always clumsy as he is unable to think through any of his actions.

The story fails to be either funny or exciting, a potentially interesting story based upon a simple plot ruined by bad writing and horrible characters.

Although the whole “harem power fantasy” isn’t anything new, I think there’s an element of this series that seems fresh. It might just be my personal thoughts, but I think that the series is at least above some of the other, more main stream series.

This WN is not bad but where is the next chapter? Why it's stop at chapter 4? It's more than 3 month right now since the last chapter.

This is why people dont want to read WN most of the translator usually have this half-baked attitude on translating just because they dont has enough reader or fan they dropped it halfway then pickup other WN.

Please continued translated it, I appreciate it if you could. Thank you.

This is just... So poorly written I couldn't suspend my disbelief no matter how hard I tried. I could barely make it 20 chapters in forcing myself to keep reading. Might be enjoyable if I was a lot younger and looking for a power fantasy to read, but even then I think it would be absolutely unbelievable.

The main character is of course a perfect demigod of a human being before the age of 5. At the age of 5, he goes to the royal capital for some cliche aristocrat children's gathering, but saves the King's daughter and a duke's daughter from an army of Orcs, and of course the girls fall madly in love with him, he gets engaged to them, he is made a baron, and he's given a mansion in the capital. Let me emphasize this again. AT THE AGE OF FIVE.

I find my self flabbergasted that people complain about the character of a novel without seriously considering the intent and focus of the author.

This novel is supposed to be a comedy... not a super serious endeavor of fantasy with mega romantic tones or whatever...

IF you don't find the novel funny that's fine, humor is entirely subjective, but as well, the common sense of the characters and their interactions isn't unfounded or sudden, maybe people are trying to project themselves on the MC and they would have done things differently or... more>> whatever... maybe they believe it's unrealistic or that "no one would ever act that way" regarding the characters populating the novel.

I've read novels where I just can't understand or even like the humor of the author, but even then I could "See" the craft and intent behind his work, because this is NOT a poorly written novel... and it deserves a bit better than just dismissing it because people dislike the characters or the plot.

But anyway, opinions are like A-holes, everyone's got one and they all stink, so let's focus on what I really want to talk about.

World building: 4/5 everything is properly set up and developed, there are barely any exposition dumps and the rhythm doesn't falter at all, if anything I find it kinda dumb that most of the set ups are there to become the punchline later... but even if that's the case it's consistent with the tone, so I can't really complain too much.

Tone: 5/5 It's a comedy... you're supposed to be laughing at the 5 year old blowing everyone's mind, hooking up with every girl, and stuff... IF you don't find it funny I can't tell you you're wrong, but I can tell you that if you thought this was deeper or would have a thicker plot or whatever, you should probably adjust your expectations (it's right there in the title "knows no self restraint" it's part of the whole premise...)

Characters: 4/5 possibly lowering it to 3/5 depending in further developments, I liked the pranks MC plays and how he acts and rationalizes things, everyone's got their particular personality and it's properly established in their characterizations, sis, fiance's and even the adults, there is no character growth but well, that's just par of the course in Japanese novels (and why not a single one of them I've read have being graded above 4 in characters), I particularly enjoy the Dukes daughter being on top of the MCs shenanigans... it's early but I can see where everyone is regarding the other in the story... it's too early and not everyone is properly established, if the author begins to shove them to the side because he doesn't care it's definitely a 3, but so far it hasn't really thrown anyone out of the bus, so i'll stick with 4 for the time being

Pacing: 3/5 it's all over the place, it speeds up and slows down according to the whims of the author, so far there is no overarching plot other than "have fun kid" and well, fun he is having... I have a feeling the author just thinks of a punchline and then starts writing how to get there filling in the blanks, and if he doesn't have any he focuses on how OP the character is throwing him a set up among the million others that are in this kinds of stories.

Plot: 4/5 It's just a power fantasy with comedic elements the whole point is to be entertained, and entertained I was, I always am grinning from ear to ear when reading this novel because I find it hilarious.

Over all, it's NOT a bad novel, it's lighthearted and fun, if you're here looking for a super competent romantic harem novel you're gonna have a bad time, if you're here looking for adventure and exciting set pieces of monsters with a super OP protagonist you're gonna have a bad time, just... enjoy the voyage and don't focus too much on the destination because this novel is just a roller coaster. <<less

Every time I see a chapter for this popup on Novel Updates, I'm like ooh interesting, and then I get to chapter 15 again.

... more>>

What kind of crappy weak MC lets himself get forced into agreeing to marry someone, much less TWO someones when he has no real interest in them. By chapter 15 he is perfectly GOD DAMN able to burn the entire freaking kingdom down. NOONE has the ability to force him into anything. Be a freaking ALPHA not a crappy submissive wimp. It pisses me off so much.


I enjoy a good power fantasy. I like a little bit of struggle, but what I enjoy is wondering how the MC will win, not if. I don't want the MC to be arrogant to the point of killing anyone who offends him, but they shouldn't be weak and pushed around even slightly. The MC should drive the story, not be driven by it. Such disappoint. <<less

Do you like your protagonists reincarnated? Do you like them being able to form complete and logic conversations with adults at age 5 and it not be considered weird? Do you want them to be the strongest in the world at said age? Do you like when they are Betas that never talk back and can be pushed around by "friends" and "family" like they're some kind of pet? If you answered yes to all of these questions, then this novel is for you!

Our main character is all of these... more>> things and such a coward and pushover that he literally accepts being yelled at after saving a town and doesn't complain. Talk about an easy to manipulate guy! <<less

This is a great LN. I don't see where people get some of these comments from.

First he doesn't hide the fact he is OP. He hides the fact he is OP as a god by changing what his stats show. He changes them to show he is OP as hell but might still be considered human. I mean he showcases a dragon he kills I don't see how people think he is hiding the fact he is OP.

As for the girls characters they are side characters. Their job in this... more>> is to provide a Boke and Tsukkomi. They provide a little romance but that is not their main reason.

As for comedy it is Manzai. Japanese comedy that Americans don't really understand. Not the crude humor of americans, and yes american humor is very crude. Either making fun of something or laughing at misfortune. That is the majority of american humor. If you understand Manzai you will see a lot of comedy.

As for pushover he doesn't go against the king which is normal. And if you've ever been in a good relationship you should know she is always right. Listening to your future wife is a smart thing to do. Happy wife happy life.

The one thing I found annoying was the age messup the suggest had. They fix it later but never changed early chapters. It makes absolutely no sense the way his age progression starts. It's also fixed in the manga which ii like also.

If you like an OP main character that doesn't hide his power along with some kingdom building you will like this. If you enjoy japanese comedy you will find a lot in it. <<less

This is yet another bullsh*t cliche story about a genius boy who gets his harem. The usual scenes of an adventurer trying to kill the 5 year old in the guild, being praised by the king, engaging with a princess, joining an academy, etc.

This is not a comedy or satire, there is zero tension, it is just some text to get relaxed.

Typical OP JP harem fantasy. If anything stands out, it's how the king calls the protagonist to complain whenever the protagonist does anything. Usually, it's something like "Hey, you told me to do this thing and I did it." "What!? Why did you do it so perfectly!? What's wrong with you!?" The harem element is extremely weak, too. The author keeps throwing women at the main character but he doesn't seem interested in any of them even if he's engaged to them. Even if he wasn't engaged to them he'd... more>> do whatever they wanted anyway because he's a typical JP protagonist who can't say no.

As a story where everything revolves around the protagonist, it's weak because the protagonist himself is weak as a character. And yet, it's not egregiously bad either. As long as you don't mind the first sentence I typed, you'll probably be OK reading this to pass the time. <<less

Generic isekai harem tr*sh. A diluted soap opera with zero memorable characters.

Anyway, it's still fun to read. There's at least some action and drama every few chapters unlike most of these WNs that just devolve into a slice of life with awful pacing/cooking novel.

This is your usual power fantasy where the protag can do anything, there is no interesting plot. The MC needs to kill an evil god, but he shows no sign of appearing until c150 and even then the MC is so OP. Refer to other isekai harem novels.
