【Hero Alistar, a legendary hero who has saved many people with the Holy Sword ■■■■■■. There was a person who was always with him, Saint Magali. The two of them, with a bottomless kindness and benevolent spirit, no matter what danger befalls them, they saved many people that suffered hardships and injustice. This book describes the history of the legend of the greatest Hero and Saint of all time.】

Excerpt from the preface of 『Holy Sword Legend』.

My childhood friend, Magali was chosen as a saint.

From now on, it seems that she has to keep smiling to everyone in the capital, and has to live in a terrifying strict world that has things like manners and dance.

We’ve been together since birth. As expected, there is something left in my mind.

While feeling a little loneliness… I held down my childhood friend who no matter what was trying to escape and turned her over to the knight who came to pick her up.

「Alistaaaaaaaaaaaaar!!」

I could hear a resentful voice, but that was probably my imagination.

I was taken along to the capital to see her off as a last struggle… but, it ended without any problems.

「Now, I’m going home. Good luck ^^」

I turned my back to my childhood friend who looked at me with resentful eyes. And when I was on my way home… I was being chased by goblins.

「Noooooooo!! Someone help meeeeeeeeeee!!」

This is a misunderstood legend of a hero and saint with the worst personalities that’s pulling each other’s leg while pursuing a happy life.

It's pretty early still but it's an ok read. It's mostly just an adventure comedy about the two scummy people desperately trying to get rid of each other or drag the other into their misery. Pretty outsides, rotten insides, both are forced into "selfless" roles and you basically just revel in how their actions don't match their true feelings.

Overall it's ok, it's enjoyable to finally see the Hero being all "why tf do I gotta do this?? I just wanna mind my own shit." And I like how both are... more>> selfish and terrible people. The sword and Hero's banter is hilarious but I do dislike the fact that the sword can force the MC's body or give MC painful headaches to do their will. I would have preferred if they were more equal or if in their downtime, MC's misusing the sword/punishing it for it forcing it's will on him (ex: threaten to dull the blade or stick it in a pile of manure). <<less

This forced me to write a review... the story arcs are the same as you would find in a typical 'Yuusha' novel but the MCs interior monologues make it extremely enjoyable. Probably the most self-centered and tr*shy character who doesn't have a spine ... more>>
Spoiler

(in a good way tho, he won't just throw himself into danger for 'Yuusha' reasons or let emotions make decisions for him, however, a Holy Sword will ruin that for him)

[collapse]
whose only redeemable traits are his exceptional acting skills and discerning eyes. And I like how he just doesn't start behaving like a completely different person upon suddenly gaining power.

His childhood friend's monologue just got started from chapter 26, I think it will be equally enjoyable... can't wait for them to start their 'legendary tale' together.

On a side note, the translation is a bit off during the initial chapters but gets better later on. <<less

This is a fantasy and not an isekai. The premise is fresh and funny about how two childhood friends both hiding their own true tr*shy personalties have to take up their respective roles. Tbh tr*shy MCs make the story a lot of fun because of how what they say and what they are actually screaming internally contrasts.

I'm only on c4 now but I took a peek at the raws and this looks extremely funny comedy action fantasy novel.I hope they don't mess it up

It is a shame, the non-verbal exchanges are very good but that cursed sword is so ruin the character. While the story will end too quickly otherwise since the MC is pretty clever, that sword basically takeover his body most of the time to play "justice" and its sense of "justice" is so childish and meddlesome I wonder why it hasn't just lockdown MC's conciousness and takeover his body completely already.

I tried to read on hoping it would improve and it did improve a bit with his childhood friend involvement,... more>> it is still terrible. <<less

An unique take on fantasy genre. The protagonist (s) is interesting so far, will update later in the future.

Ps. Author's grammar is solid and words is fluid enough for me to read without any discomfort

I would have rated it 4+ stars if not for the holy sword's personality really....

I'm sure that other reviews have talked about it already but I really can't stand its existence thou I have managed to read until chapter 70 (75 now but so far everything is the same). Now lets talk about what makes it good and terrible!

Character-wise it is great! Not so original for the side characters but that is normal, I can even say that they have more character in them compared to general isekai protags but... more>> that isn't a big claim to make lol. The main characters are obviously the main seller of the series. If you have ever read Death march and thought that he was too bland or arifureta and thought he was done badly as an edgy character then this one can be claimed as just right! And the best part? There are two of them. Not copied pasta, they are different enough to separate but similar enough to laugh as they struggle on similar issues.

Story!

So simply put the main character, Alistar, is focused on one thing and one thing only. A pampered life. he tries this by acting like a good guy and trying to find a rich gullible girl. The problem is someone has the same idea! A female childhood friend named Magali, since they know each others nature they try to remove the other party both so that they are secure, and because they find the other annoying for many reasons.

What made it Ehhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh?

Now that I said some of the major good points in the story I'll talk about the biggest detractor. The holy sword. Or rather as Alistar calls it the Cursed Sword.

One of the major plot movers in the story is actually the Sword trying to act through Alistar, his wielder. The only problem is that they have incompatible personalities and while that would set up some good bantering in a different novel in this one the Sword just gives him headaches at best and controls his body
Spoiler

or uses his lifespan

[collapse]
at worst. Literally any argument no matter how logical it is on Alistar's side is ignored by the Sword who more and more appears to be the classic hero idealist kind. What kind is that? The kind that rushes out in the middle of the night. As a weakling. With no training. Now I would be less angry if not for the fact that it is Alistar's body that he is forcing to act and not his own but there we have it. The biggest villain in the story really is The Holy/Cursed Sword who threatens MC to act out his heroic ideals. <<less

The dynamic in the beginning between the leads was pretty interesting but the next arch was just the male lead being controlled to do good deeds. It was a bit funny at first but that was the entire arch so the joke was run into the ground. The next arch seems to have both the leads again so here's hoping.

Also the site that the chapters are on is tr*sh. It was working for a bit but now it's a mess of links and unnecessary pages. From c20 most chapters are... more>> split in two even though NU doesn't show that. <<less

Well, the novel is fun to read. The mc's inner monologue often made me laugh. This is actually the only reason I even read this novel.

You should read it for yourself and make your own judgement about it. Written here is only my own opinion.

I don't mean to talk bad about this novel, it's plot and translation quality is quite good. Also, I can understand and even agree to some of the mc's ideology. I really like the mc's character.

BUT, the only problem is the holy sword. I understand that... more>> the author made it to make the novel more interesting, I agree at first. But as the story goes on I get quite irritated about it. Always forcing the MC to be a hero against his will, and helping every girl in their trouble because its 'right' is what I hate the most about it.

That is reason why I rate this novel 3/5. Out of respect for the author who wrote this novel and the translator. Also because I did enjoy reading to some extent. <<less

It is a fun read in the beginning, however it started to get annoying in the recent Chapter. The interaction between the sword and the MC is so annoying.

This is actually amazing.

The internal and unspoken dialogue draws eye-catching sparks between the main leads, and the world is delivered quickly and efficiently, drawing upon well-established fantasy tropes; it plays second fiddle, in any case, to the interactions and machinations between the dual protagonists. Some people may hate the sword, but in truth that is literally the only thing that can keep the male protagonist on the plot rails, because his drive to escape responsibility is put forth so strongly. The story knows that it lives and dies on its... more>> management of contrasts, so it has no choice. A flaw would be that the issues that they have to deal with, so far, are not very interesting.

As always, the question is whether the author can maintain this banter going forward, but at its current stage it is a breath of fresh air. <<less

This is one of the... If not, the best web novels I've read. You have a ML, a FL, and support characters pulling in every direction. At this point, and I will be frank. There is no true (required) romance at c39. ML wants a sugar momma, and FL wants a sugar daddy. Side characters want to force their intentions on the leads. And yes, it's hilarious as can be. ML gets dragged into a mess and can't escape the mushroom cloud of consequences. FL catches someone else's eye in... more>> another way, and must sit (nearly) idle while enduring the unwanted attention of royalty.

Both ML and FL are completely contrary to the usual tropes, and their constant struggle for power and against their current situation is really refreshing.

I had zero plans to rate this, but that Toast chump rates everything 2 stars or below, so I had to up-vote my absolute favorite novel here. Every day I find an update on this is the best day of the week, and holy heck there's 5 chapters up today... Glasses up, boys! <<less

Good story, I really mean it.

Story is about alistar and magali who actually has wicked personality but society condemn them as hero. The foundation of story are really solid and some moment really did make me smiling.

Character.. To be aware except MC and saint, others character doesnt even described in portrait and lack of personality. We got plenty character going on and except 'the breast is huge' or 'he is handsome' we really doesnt have anyway to picture the character. Its my first complaint.

Plotwise, its damned hillarious actually. Caution, if... more>> you dislike pathetic MC that actually coward and just being controlled, move on from this novel now. You have been warned. For me, its main selling of this novel. The dialogue between MC and sword is fun to read, and its funny how MC and saint actually clash each other every chance. However, the story actually seems rushed and isnt detailed most of time in action and stuff happened.

Spoiler

its like how MC manage to defeat all member gray guild, how even MC has time to defeat wyvern and get evidence of wicked nobel.. I think author just want to put everything without planned out of convience

[collapse]

Overall, its not perfect story but enjoyable for me. Easy 5/5 consider the running gag is their main sell point. I hope it would stay same in future. <<less

It started out interesting, but the sword has ruined all the goodwill that was developed.

It controls him through mental pain to do whatever it wants, which means the story has essentially devolved into a guy just b*tching constantly, all the while going along with whatever the sword says.

All the fun is gone.

A good story

It's fun to read, but the sword is annoying with his 'justice'. There were times when I wanted to stop reading because of this, but the story is interesting enough to prevent that.

In raw recent chapter, the sword finally got what he deserve

... more>>
Spoiler

There is someone strong enough to manipulate everyone's memories... except Magali's.

That person become the hero and Alistar is being forgotten. Well, it was a good thing for Alistar because he can slip away from the capital and stopped being a hero.

The sword? he become a scarecrow and a growth promotant for the field. The plants grow fast and Alistar can harvest easily.

What a happy life...... or not, don't forget that there's no way Magali will allow that.

It was kind of interesting but the MC might as well be possessed since he can't do anything and just complains which gets dull pretty quickly.

The relationship between the MC an the Saint is actually enjoyable but the whole not being able to fight back so he gets dragged into all these 'wakey' situations made me hate the story

An MC that literally became a puppet/sIave.

A cursed sword that can control his body, voice, and can even punish him for resisting or simply his thoughts. He can't even do what he wants anymore, no way to really do anything if the sword doesn't allow.

What a convenient plot device, one that forces the story to go the nice heroic justice way.

Could've been a much better story with his interactions and schemes against the saint and whoever had he been free, just like in the beginning before he picked up the... more>> sword. What a waste. <<less
