According to the god’s prophecy, the girl Flamm was chosen to be one of the members of the demon king’s subjugation journey.

Everyone was a hero possessed a top class power. However, for some reason only Flamm did not possess the power to fight, and all of her status values were 0.

While having ashamed thoughts, nevertheless she continued to put great efforts to be useful to the heroes.

However, one day, she was tricked by one of the party members, said that she “was not necessary anymore,” and sold off to a slave trader.

Flamm was forced to live within a coarse environment as a slave.

However, there she encountered a “cursed sword,” and realized the true value of the weakest power “Inverse.”

The girl, who acquired the power to fight, was honestly indifferent to the demon king already and decided to live peacefully as an adventurer alongside a girl slave she met.

——This is a story of one girl who continued to crawl up from the very bottom in order to regain her peaceful everyday life.

It's really cute and fluffy. A dark fantasy with heavy slice of life elements, about a girl and her slave bonding over how f*cked up the world is, with a lot of cute interactions. Very much worth reading

The premise of this story is interesting, a girl who powers up through cursed equipment and has the ability to inverse seals and curses. Even with this ability, the protagonist is not overpowered. Healing spells damage her, and she's useless without her equipment. The idea is really neat, but unfortunately it's wasted on this author, as he manages to write it all as generically as possible. A word of warning for people who came for the Yuri tag: don't go into this novel expecting explicit yuri scenes. The most you'll... more>> get from this is hugs, hand holding, and cuddles.

The writing is incredibly generic and one dimensional. There's no twists or surprises in the plot. We know who's the bad guy, and who's the good guy. Church bad. Demon good. Now it's just a matter of waiting for the next hundred chapters for the MC and friends to power-up and figure it out. There's not much to it.

Half of it reads like a slice of life all about cooking and cute fluffy yuri. The other half has detailed and gruesome horror scenes. One chapter MC will be laughing and eating Japanese cuisine with her harem, the next chapter someone's getting brutally murdered. The pacing is erratic, and the author slams event after event at the reader without bothering to build up the protagonist's abilities or add character development other than the occasional fluffy friendship scene. Let's be honest, fluffy slice of life yuri and gore do not mix well. The slice of life elements are distracting, and have derailed the story more than once. If you can't mix them well then pick one or the other, author.

Nobody in this novel uses their head, which makes the story incredibly unbelievable. The demons are just chill sitting back, and letting the heroes slaughter them. They don't even bother uprooting the corrupt churches at all. The MC doesn't stop and think "hmm... cursed equipment. Nobody else has a use for it, it's cheap as hell, and it's literally f*cking everywhere." She has a chance to ask for whatever she could possibly wish for, as a result of completing someone's request. And it never crosses her mind to ask for a pile of cursed equipment.

The translation is so-so. The translator is obviously not a native English speaker. It's readable, but it's to the point where I wish they'd drop the series and let another group pick it up. Updates seem sporadic. Sometimes they're weekly, sometimes every other month.

But I mean, seriously? You're telling me that NOBODY in the hero's party ever thought "Inverse.. hmm sounds cool. Maybe it.. uhh.. f*cking works on weapons?" <<less

I am honestly disappointed by the lack of attention this has. The plot is intriguing enough and the first chapter showed lots of potentials. They managed to set up a villain that isn't so evil that he just becomes annoying but just evil enough as to make us the audience hate him and want to see him dead. The story does also set up intrigue. I genuinely want to see the MC become powerful and beat the hell out of everyone that wronged her and eventually reunite with her family.... more>> I hope we get more of this. I see this as being a great story with more chapters. Hell, It even has Yuri so how can it go wrong?

Edit: 1-7-19

Chapter 8 has been out since the second of January, I am very happy that the story was picked up. As of now, This is the only Light Novel that I am invested in.

I do like Flamm, I'd defiantly say she is a tragic protagonist done right and after rereading "The Story of Drifted Girls in Different World ~The Adventure of Claire~" That also has a tragic protagonist but done poorly, I can't help but admire this story that much more. The story doesn't have anything over the top tragic like mutilation or societal abuse. But I do feel for Flamm as she suffers due to Jean and his massive ego, Resulting in Flamm's current position.

Even though we got a part I believe around an interlude with the rest of the hero party that seemed a bit rushed, The story manages to keep a really nice pace going for the most part.

I will admit that the MC only escaping the situation she's put in due to luck kind of annoyed me, I have always been of the Mindset that characters only managing to do something cause of X happening is kind of annoying.


Flamm just so happens to have been sold to a slaver that holds a cursed weapon and with Flamm's special skill that is one of a kind to be a benefit when using cursed items is kind of obnoxious


I am loving the relationship between Flamm and the escaped slave (I can't remember her name) I find it kind of funny, interesting, charming and a bit sad as Flamm has to deal with a slave that is so used to being a slave that she isn't used to not having a master or not taking abuse. I honestly love it that you can see the seedlings of the girl starting to trust Flamm bit by bit. I completely recommend this story if it is any part of a genre you like. <<less

I'm the latest translator, so I'm biased, but I do think this story is legitimately good. I have two main reasons: (1) the fight scenes are good, and (2) the novel does a good job navigating between the natural extremes of the genre without falling into over-edginess, or over-opness.

I'm a guy who loves a good fight scene. Most light novels are pretty terrible in that area, unfortunately. Either you get a one sided curb stomp or you get turn based combat where people shout moves at each other. In this... more>> story, the fight scenes are surprisingly good. The author does a good job projecting the sort of visceral feeling of a real fight with real stakes, the fights go back and forth, and the MC usually has to both persevere through adversity and use her head to win.

It's a small thing, but it is a nice change of pace from the "I'm OP so I wander around crushing mobs and awkwardly flirting with my harem" crowd.

As to the overall structure, basically it's a crappy world but an optimistic MC. The mix of the two produces a unique tone.

Also, the crappiness of the world is more realistic than a lot of the crappy worlds out there. People who go through horrible experiences have lasting mental trauma. People in general are greedy and selfish and look down on slaves. The adventurer's guild is an employer of last resort for dirtbags, so the people who hang out there are mostly dirtbags. That kind of thing.

The cheerfulness of the MC balances out the darkness of the world. She's not stewing over revenge, she just wants a nice life for herself. One big contrast between this and I Was Kicked out of the Hero's Party Because I Wasn't a True Companion is that Flamm really has to struggle for that good life. Gideon settled down in his new town and was instantly the baddest dude around, while Flamm is starting from square one and trying to figure things out.

Overall, it's a pretty unique little story. <<less

Fills a niche of fantasy yuri. Middle of the road writing; prose is okay but plot is generic so far. I'm not optimistic about this staying away from stat wank and jobbers. There's a lot of untranslated material worth withholding a rating for, but still, it's kind of bad.

I'm expecting an antihero but so far the future looks bleak.

MC (a girl ofc) joined the hero party thanks to prophecy made by the God, even though her ability seems useless. The sage in that party didn't like her because the hero (a girl too ofc) was too attached to her (even though she didn't act like that), so he decided to tricked the low self-esteem MC into slavery. He lied to MC, saying the whole fiasco about selling her to slave trader was a unanimous decision of the party,... more>> and that made MC fell into despair.

At this point, I was expecting some nice revenge. It doesn't needs to be edgy like Nidome no Yuusha, just a slow, sweet revenge is enough. And yet... the MC acts as if she has learned just how cruel the world can be, but still pretty trusting to random people.

I just hope her character will get a qualitative change. I don't care in which direction, just... make her character consistent, please. The whole time I read this, I keep screaming inside "girl, get your sh¡t together!". Even though I like the premise, but the execution is still a bit lacking...

But hey, there are still a lot of room for improvement. For now, despite my disappointment, I sure can give this novel at least 3 stars, just from the premise.


Moreover, just like what SovietWeeb said,

It even has Yuri so how can it go wrong? <<less

This web novel are different than other yuri fantasy because of the dark element it put in. Honestly, I thought it would be normal fantasy scenario 'cept with a dash of yuriness include. But, its not. The author throw in a dark element in it and the fighting scene are decently written that it makes this a lot enjoyable (for action-seeker). I'm looking forward for the next chapter for the next chapter and to those, reader, give this a try. Unless yuri is not your genre, then please don't... more>> even come here with your hatred. Find your typical "harem" sh*t somewhere else. <<less

Honestly I like this way more than slow life at the contryside (forgot full name) one despite it having a similar plot. It's dark but not too dark. The MC does eventually get stronger, but doesn't instantly become the strongest in the world like a lot of other light novels. There seems to be a nice progression in terms of strength and in terms of character development from what I read so far. The only fault seems to be that the authors other novels are preety terrible (in my opinion)... more>> and this might gain the same flaws as it goes on. It's sad though that it looks like it might have been dropped. The last chapter was more than 3 months ago and there's been no notice about what happened to it. It would be great if someone else picked it up, but at this point it's still not certain if the translator will still not continue. <<less

My real rating is 4.5/5

This novel's looking to be a pretty good story overall. My only problem is that if I didn't read the interlude, I probably would have dropped this one in chapter 4 or so. The interlude looks into the other party member's life after the events in the first two chapters and it built a whole new dynamic to the potential growth, or lack of growth, of the party members. Basically, how does the party function with a missing cog? I'd even say that it's almost more... more>> interesting to see them (as they fail) than the main character, but that may just be because I've read so many novels that I could predict what was going to happen. There's not much more to say because there's only 6 chapters, 7 if we include the interlude, but this is definitely an attention grabber. Lots of potential to be really good and I hope the story continues to deliver. <<less

I just have to say, reading a few chapters ahead, that this story gets real weird pretty fast (you'll have to see it to believe it).

Apart from that, the story is fairly okay. It's an awful world with some awful characters, but not as transparently so as some other titles I won't name here.

So far this story checks most of the boxes for a standard "person judged useless is brutally mistreated, becomes strong, and gets revenge and/or lives well" story, but the writing and translation both seem solid, and the plot has lots of room for interesting developments.

My only concern is that so far the MC seems to only run into pretty scummy people. But the viewpoint chapter form the other members of the hero party makes me hope that there really are some decent people in this world.
