One of the 8 million gods, Keika Hiko-no-Mikoto failed at gaining believers in Japan.

He got thrown off to another world when he was going back to Heaven in disappointment.

That other world, Alexsild, had been mostly seized by the demon king.

Mysteriously, Keika who should have been invisible to other people could be seen normally like a normal human.

And then, a princess knight told him that he could ascend to Godhood if he piled up achievements as a hero.

Keika decided to defeat the demon king and become a God in that world.

By the way, unlike other people, Keika can see the ability values of people.

He can also see Skill Tree.

Why? Cause he’s a God.

Similar feels to Death March. Lolis, OP MC, adventures (not cooking). But this one with actual romances (albeit only fulfilled on the latter half) No billions skills like Sugar so the chuuni factor is reduced (is that a good thing?) But there's oyakodon goin' for ye, which is nice~

Oh btw, the "hell" in this novel is sooo terrifying~~~

Your typical power fantasy Isekai story. From reading the synopsis you can more or less guess how things usually go down: the protagonist is overpowered and can basically have the ability to do anything if the plot demands it. "Why? Because he's a god--" is an explanation used a lot and I know it's supposed to be a joke but it's not funny. Merely pointing out that something that shouldn't be, is, doesn't excuse its lack of a reason to exist. There's no sense of tension either because of how... more>> astronomically powerful the main character is and it's not even done in an entertaining or unique way.

None of the characters have any depth or individuality to speak of. The main girl, Celica, has basically done nothing but fawn over the protagonist and constantly get saved by him. Villains are one-dimensional. They have no names and backstories, exist solely as obstacles for the hero to overcome and come out on top on. You can find them in any other by-the-numbers story.

Common plot threads you see in Isekai are there, like the bandits in a bar making a scene so our righteous protagonist can solve the problem and come out a hero. People will cheer and praise the protagonist in the cringiest way. Reminds me of those stories of things that totally happened where people call out a racist on a bus and the everyone in the bus stands up and cheers while the racist guy who was ugly by the way, walks out in shame and the storyteller gets showered in pu**y. That kind of thing. It's supposed to make the reader feel amazing but it's just so f**king cringe especially in the one of the most recent chapters.

The protagonist is a god that has a long history of doing god-things yet acts like and seems to ever only reference Otaku culture like games and manga. Makes you wonder what type of audience this is aimed at, huh? This all probably sounds familiar doesn't it?

There's nothing unique or original here. Just a cut by the numbers power fantasy harem Isekai with an overpowered protagonist. If you're looking for something unique that doesn't tow the line, look elsewhere. If you don't mind cliches or are actually looking for exactly the same thing you've already read before, then go right for it. <<less

Yato what are you doing here!?

Are you going to be a god of Calamity again!?!

---

... more>> The story is set up as a typical "Transported to another world" story with a twist. The MC starts of as a god!

Keika being a "failed" God in the modern world is no idiot so you won't see any "dense" with him or being a complete nincompoop!

However, as of Ch. 5, there might not be any intercourse with the MC and the heroines of the story as Virgin Females give him a + boost in stats, but who knows? Maybe he'll start having so many follower it won't matter and start making little demigod babies everywhere. <<less

The novel looks promising, but somehow there's this feeling that this novel would become like death march who's harem are just there for the slice of life and comedy.

So far looks pretty promising.

MC failed to gain believers on earth and later was mistransported to another world with a tipical gamelike fantasy setting.

MC as a God is introduced as very OP beyond all mortal.

But then the author went full retard by trying his best in making up whatever nonsense to prevent MC from using his OP power.

... more>> e.g:
Walking instead of flying because he wants to chat with his noob companion.

Trying his best to hide his power from public because blablabla.

Trying his best to do things by human rules such as taking exams, making hero license, etc etc. (Seriously, this one is very stupid if you think logically)

Don't expect a romantic development soon, he doesnt have any romantic feeling to his companions at all.

Well anyway, it's very shallow and light but I still see potential. <<less

The story starts kinda interesting as a forgotten japanese got venturing some isekai world. Unfortunately the flow went downhill around chapter 30+ as it becomes more useless fanservices and lack of interesting interaction between the MC and his 'follower'. Possibly because of the author's lack of experience on story telling.

i dont think I'm interested to know much more on what will happen to this type of god. Dropped.

It is your typical Japanese story, God or not, I didn't know Gods also act like an otaku.

So far the story has been stretched out with half of the content of the chapter is them flirting in this common platonic harem route like all other web novels from Japan. The plot barely moves and you get these segmented chapters (part 1, 2, etc.) which make me think why make it longer than necessary when half of the content is unnecessary?

What bugs me about this story is that he does not... more>> make any effort to anything that doesn't have any split in between its legs. The people with "Light" attribute is already a clue that he should at least gather or plan them out but nothing is yet happening. He even ignores that one person who has that attribute be imprisoned and implied to be executed because it's a he, let's be honest here if it were a woman we would get another chapter for its background then another for its POV and another for... hey wait a minute.

Overall I would rate this somewhat ok, I will wait and see how the main character goes about. This really feels another Death march in the making which I really hope doesn't happen but its very close. <<less

Eh, it's okay so far. Unfortunately the main character's personality is a bit boring; he comes across as a very stereotypical protagonist so far (being ignorant about others' feelings towards him, etc.) Also, the side characters are similarly uninteresting, as they lack the ability to be any kind of challenge to the main character or, really, to provide him with much of anything that he needs. Their only real purpose is to show off how strong the MC is, making for a typically shallow and juvenile story.

There's some potential for... more>> brainless entertainment, though, and the world setup of a 'Hero' system set to preserve the status quo is interesting enough to cover the weaknesses of the interpersonal dynamics for now. <<less

Typical OP MC with the joke that he's a god so he can do anything.

Nice story but the characters aren't really likable say for the loli and that's just in a small cute animal kind of way. MC is dense as hell, and at first I gave him a pass for it because he's a god so he might not see humans in a romantic interest nor s*xual way, but every freaking chapter he's got to describe how soft or delicate someone's breasts/thighs are. It's inconsistent, and I thought he... more>> was a god and would see humans as humans but no, he didn't save a person who seemed like a nice dude, protagonist characteristics, but I bet he would have if he was a she. (He might rescue him later but I'm not getting my hopes up) That made me dislike the MC even if his interaction with the Naga was refreshing.

Main heroine is bland, all she does is fawn over the MC really, nothing interesting. I would have even welcomed a little yandere and that's saying something.

There was a review comparing it to Death March but between the two just read Death March, it's got more lolis, more harem, MC actually goes to brothels and he's not dense. (He just wants to wait until they're older to make them waifu) <<less
