I've never skipped so much chapters from the novels I've read except for this one..

First, the MC lacks substance. He's usually a yes-man who always get thrown around for the other party's gains but there are times he's shown as smart? How s*upid is that? Imagine having his widowed older sister-in-law to be a mistress just because he liked s*x with her and trying to hide it on the legal wives? Then, having fun out with his females students while his wives are pregnant. Yeah, right, it's work as a... more>> teacher as he assumed and he didn't know or even care about how other people thinks about that so he ended up having 3 additional wives. I don't even know what kind of moral compass does the MC is supposed to have..

Second, the world building. Too general. Nothing special. It seems japanese authors just tend to just put modern cities as lost ancient civilization. Magic isn't explained too deeply, it's just like how magic in other novels work.

Third, how the dialogues is written. I can't even describe how it is.

Reading this story makes me always want to sigh.

The author is too much dependent on the plot armor that it gets too much boring. I don't hate fan service but its too much. There's only little to none of characters development and the author keeps on adding girls on the harem for whatever reason and ending up the first ones almost in the background.

It seemed to me that the author is just a teenager putting all the fantasies into the story incoherently. <<less

Well this novel is one of my favourites, it is a slice-life genre and for me it delivers what it promised, this a story of a MC in feudal society in another world, I see that people berate the MC for being such pu**y beta male and so on but I really don't understand where they're coming from, true the MC goes with flow most of the time but why wouldn't he, he has nothing to lose and often gain something, why the hell would he go against... more>> the king or try to fight some higher ranking nobles because they used him while not causing him no harm in doing so and even rewarding him true sometimes he feels frustrated but that how the world is, giving and taking , why would he try being some kind of edge lord going around threatining people with his power, he is easygoing and so he doesn't like conflict if necessary (he doesn't have a grand goal or aspiration he just wants to live his life to the best he could , in the end getting on people good page is better for him on the long run) . <<less

Bizarre series, MC has no idea why he's living or even existing in the story. sh*t just happens and he does whatever else people say he should do. You'd normally be like okay with this in some degree. But it gets so extreme at times, you can't really ignore it. Doesn't help author likes to go into infodumps about politics of the setting and the world. Which is pretty decent tbh. But the contract just makes it worse.

Now. Back to the MC. Say you become OP, rich, status and get... more>> waifus you are married to. Now... Originally you planned to become a machinist working at the local factory. As you had no other choice. Now.. MC naturally goes back to the machinist job now that he's a millionaire. You might think, ah. He prbly has some reasons for it. Nope. Not gone into detail. Honestly hardly much of the mc's emotions and such are put into detail into anything. I am pretty sure he's actually a android.

Bottomline.. Isekai, with some setting and world stuff potential that would be enjoyable if main cast didn't feel like zombies. Can't really recc this. <<less

The LN is a slight improvement over the WN in delivery. However, the author still has the annoying style of conflating narration with dialogue. for example:

... more>>

""Well, fighting while wearing this... I wonder about that?" (Wendelin)

Come to think of it, is a circlet something a man would actually wear?
There were no men wearing circlets around me in my previous life. I'm not accustomed to wearing accessories either. I would hate being told that it doesn't suit me by those around me.
Ah, well I guess there are no people who will tell the current me straight to my face that it doesn't suit me.
But, I would hate having rumors about it spread behind my back.

"... That's the reason." (Wendelin) "

should read as

"Well, fighting while wearing this... I wonder about that?... That's the reason." (Wendelin)

With nothing in between the question mark and the ellipses. However, the author wants us to do the work of imagining the internal monologue some how parsed and spoken out loud. This is the author's unique style. The author is truly a master at being lazy and sloppy.

Came to this light novel version after the translator switched over from the web novel version. There are apparently some minor differences in the early chapters between the web novel and the light novel but I didn't have any trouble with the switch.

Basically this is a laid back isekai story about OP wizard MC. A relaxing slice-of-life that occasionally has crises for the MC to take care of. It would be unfair to call this story dull but I am shocked that the author managed to work in a war... more>> and multiple battles with various monsters. The tone just really isn't very exciting. The light novel doesn't have the horrible info dumps that plagued the web novel. The light novel plays up the slice-of-life more than the web novel did. This gives more character interaction but makes things even more boring. At least the web novel action was moderately exciting between info dumps. In the light novel I'm actively skipping through a dragon hunt because it just isn't very exciting.

Basically, this is a slow moving isekai about being a noble wizard in another world. The web novel is more focused on action and politics than the light novel (although still not a ton of either) but suffers from info dumps. The light novel has more interaction with the harem and random people but further slows the pace of an already slow novel.

Tl;dr: give it a shot if you want a relaxed story with these tags but don't get your hopes up. <<less

Excellent world-building and the author is clearly very well-informed of historical aristocracy and its details.

It's an enjoyable harem novel and the main character's overpowered nature doesn't take away from the novel at all.

It's lacking in action a bit and revolves more around a slice-of-life sort of genre more than adventure or action overall but still provides an entertaining read.

Honestly.. What can I say? The novel is a generic slice of life Isekai that doesn't really keep your attention. The protagonist is portrayed as rather talented and powerful individual for his age, yet he is led around like a puppet on strings by others without a care in the world.

... more>>

The protagonist enters the world stage through displaying his strength to the Kingom by using Holy Magic to slay an Undead Dragon that attacked the travelling flying ship he was using. After the Undead Dragon fiasco comes the political manipulations of the King who gives him an unseated (Not owning a territory) Nobility rank of associate Baron and later uses said rank to use a loophole in the law to force him to attack a creature no minor had any right to be near let alone battle.


All the political manipulations honestly made me irritated at numerous parts of the story and thus ruined the story. My opinion? If you enjoy slice of life Isekai where the protagonist is pretty much a yes-man then you will probably enjoy this. Otherwise only read if you have nothing else better as it can become a rather dull read. <<less

One of my favorite to date. I see a lot of people hating on this series though.

MC Is OP..
MC has harem
MC does stuff with harem

Over all though I enjoy the harem members, The MC is OP in a way that is often funny, and the things he does he's usually dragged into it despite not wanting to be.

not really a past life reincarnate as he almost never uses his past life knowledge for any thing but food seasonings lol.

This is a weird story. It's sort of a meta in the vein of I've been killing slimes for 300 years, Power in the Shadows or Isekai Nonbiri Nouka where the author has the MC basically just quickly run through the gauntlet of isekai cliches so they can get to writing about humorous misunderstanding type stuff.

However unlike those LNs, there's a lot more world-building and exposition taking place.

So it puts the story in a weird place, because on the one hand there is an actual active plot but on the... more>> other the MC has absolutely zero motivation to actually pursue it because they have no goals or character progression beyond being the meta on the nose OP Isekai guy.

I honestly don't really know who the audience for this is. People who want the humor and deconstruction of tropes are gonna be annoyed by how serious this story is, and people who want good progression based isekai are gonna be annoyed about how much OP bs the protagonist gets handed. <<less
