There are only 5 chapters of this translated, and honestly I can see why. The translation, though not bad, is lacking. This novel seems to want to explain nuances of ethics and relationships in some context which seems to be beyond the translator's ability to put into English well.

The Good:
The basic idea.

The Bad:
The pace is plodding, and the writing has lots of extraneous fluff. It has an idea, and goes nowhere with it.
The MC is pretty much a placeholder for any 'Hero' MC. Except dumber (according to... more>> himself anyway).
The ero bit starts unexpectedly, and is pretty lacking IMO. Apparently it's the actual purpose of the novel, as it's all of CH5.
So far, anything the author has spent time on (events, explanations) are either inconsequential, or 'important' because you're 'explained to' how important they are.

The Different:
Not much, really. Just a collection of random 'slightly different' ideas forced into your standard 'Post Demon King Slaying'/'Treacherous Nobility' setting.

It was stalled @ ch5 for more than a year wen I wrote this, and not only do I not care there isn't more, I doubt anyone will pick this up (except maybe for the ero?). From the illustrations it seems this will become a harem- that's rare, right? :P

Anyway- not bad, but not recommended. <<less

So, might be a bit pointless to write a review since the translation's been dropped, but what the heck.

It's roughly as the first review said - based on the 'post demon-king slaying, betrayed hero' trope, but having skimmed through the raws and focusing only on the r18 scenes (but of course), it gets better.

It's a weird mix of dark/emo tortured hero + comical erot*c dungeon management/harem seduction + political intrigue. Best thing about this is the r18 scenes are detailed and intimate.


    • ero dungeon
    • a 'post demon-king slaying hero', but he's not OP
    • haremettes get proper development and join gradually and naturally.
    • slow and detailed r18 scenes

  • There is a clear overarching plot/destination, but it moves slowly, and things mainly just happen in the dungeon
