If you look at the reviews here, there are many people disappointed with this series. I won't say that I can't understand them but for those intending to read this novel, you should realize that the focus is on the interpersonal relationships within a feudal society.

A lot of this story revolves around politics, relationships and world building. Of course there is also adventuring, fighting and the usual template stuff of Isekai novels but those don't play a major part in this story.

Some may be turned off by that but in... more>> the end it is a novel that doesn't follow the mainstream template setup of such kinds of novels and thus has its interesting parts.

The authors writing is yet another beast. Even for me, as translator, there are many instances where I could kick him in the ass for his repetitive and plain way of writing. But then again I usually remember that this is a web novel and accept it as part of the flow. ^^ If you asked me if I like this series, it'd be a yes. If you asked me if this was one of my favorites, it'd likely be a no. All being said and done, it is still a good read.

Don't get too distracted by reviews and check it out yourself. Stories are a matter of subjective view in the end anyways. :) Cheers,
Shasu <<less

Pointless reincarnated MC which has no benefit to the plot. (-1)
MC not even remotely acting mature despite having the base mentality of a 25 year old. (-1)
Effortless progression to becoming overpowered without any obstacles then harem attainment without any real reason to them falling for the MC. (-1)
Story just possessing too much repeated information filling up major chunks of chapters for no reason. (-1)

I really have no clue how the author was trying to tell this story for the most part. There's heavy... more>> repetition in each chapter without much of anything progressing along at a regular and/ or steady pace either. Oh, not to mention that in a certain section of chapters there isn't even a single mention of two heroines tagging along yet when they arrive at the major city they're instantly there as if they tagged along the entire time? <<less

The author likes to retold the same information more than twice or more, it was pointless to read each chapter thoroughly. The character disposition and characteristic not being clear because the conversations between characters were lacking, the story progress by the MC's explanation and reminisce, currently read till ch 27. Maybe will drop this wn.

Don't read this. The MC is lead by the nose by Royalty and Nobles in the entire series. And he basically bends over and takes it. This is all about boring stupid politics! He keeps coming up with the same excuse repeatedly "I don't have any experience" or "If I escaped to a different Kingdom I wouldn't know anything about it" and I'm like 'Dude you have all that power and yet...'

I don't even understand his abilities! The action is just badly written I always have to skim or... more>> skip through it. His OP has no purpose and it's just there. Turns out everyone knows all his OP Abilities and thus they monopolize him.

As for the Romance: It's just another Harem seeking MC.
Spoiler

Basically all these bitches are spoiled lol. At first the Main Heroine Ina had good potential but then just loses her purpose in the story and is just another side character blindly fallowing him. I hate how all his wives said "I should introduce myself to father in law." I'm like "Bitch didn't you just hear what Erwin said? They abandon him! He has no parents or family and his situation with them are bad right now.. yet your this conceited."

[collapse]

It really pisses me off because Ina had amazing potential.

He's only 12 years old and his Patron are already trying to get a hold of his future kids who aren't even born yet! WTF if I were him I'd run away right now. Despite him saying he wants to live a life freely he's still there.

Spoiler

Even all the $ he's gotten was manipulated by the King. The King gave him so much money for his "Work". Good thing right? Wrong. He gave him so much money so he would have no choice but to spend it to develop more territory for the Kingdom.

[collapse]

His actions are just too hypocritical. <<less

I know I am going against the grain posting this, but I love this story. It is VERY entertaining and fun to read. MC is smart and not a douche bag, pu**y like most MC's. It is not everyone's cup of tea, but if you enjoyed Mushoku Tensei, then you will enjoy this. It has that kind of feel, even tho the stories differ in many many ways. It is just the feeling of it, not the plot line itself. Give it a read and find out for yourself.

It was interesting in the beginning but later on, there's information dump in every chapter. It gets even worse because it's the same damn information. The story gets rehashed every (or every other) chapter. Like clam said, the story is pretty monotone and dull. The summary shows great potential but the product itself is lacking. Nonetheless, I still want to thank the translator for his/her dedicated work.

The first part of the story is him hiding his powerful ability from the public eyes to prevent trouble for his family, so its an a decent slice of life. He leaves his family to start his own life after reaching a certain age, and openly use his ability. This is where the novel takes a different turn and heavily focus on the political aspect. The MC is a tool, a puppet, being walk all over and being manipulative and taken advantage of by anyone in authority... more>> or by anyone of the opposite s*x due to his cowardly half-ass personality. He has no problem with female classmate using his name for their own advantages. Being swindle into marriage cause by his loose personality of lip servicing influential figures, which he has no intention of fixing even if he does not want it, and just accept it as it is. Even though the MC reincarnated with his memory of his past life in tact, his thinking regress to the level of a naive kid. I find the other characters with different circumstances and scheming to be more interesting, unfortunately none of them really stand out enough to remember them. It is for this reason that I have trouble remembering who is who. <<less

This novel does NOT have romance, action, ecci or comedy. All marriages are political and arranged. MC marries a bunch of girls because influential people just sent him the girls or said he should. MC: "oh, I guess the girl will be in trouble, I have to marry her". There is very little interaction between MC and his wives. By chapter 71 there is 1 kissing scene and 1 "walking into the bath where the naked girl is" scene. This is really just pathetic if the novel wants to say... more>> it's a "romance and ecci".

Second biggest problem in this novel is that it lacks any kind of emotion at all! Even the moments that suppose to be emotional just feel super dry. When MC had his first date with his first wife, it turned into a business talk with the jewelry shop sales clerk and some political talk. When his first wife was suppose to be bonding with the second and third, it was so boring, anticlimactic and unemotional, I cannot even describe it. The bottom line out of the bonding was that the first wife despite of being political marriage might actually have some feelings for MC, which is not even stated in a strong way, but more like hinted. All characters are super dry and there is no connection at all. This also applies to the so called "comedy" part. I maybe giggled twice and that was about it. The humor is dry and stupid and not funny at all. There is nothing here that can be classified as comedy.

Now, the biggest problem is that this novel is just endless amount of talking. Even when there suppose to be action, there are 2 sentences of action and then 10 paragraphs of freaking dialog that gives you trivia. In the middle of an intense situation characters just casually walk and chat with each other about women, politics, or some other stuff that not related at the moment at all. Even if you try to feel any sort of tension, it really is impossible because of the idle chatter and poor writing.

Also, there are endless recaps upon recaps, and even the recaps have recaps! You keep reading the same sh*t again and again and again. And then you read about stuff you don't care about. All dialog is disjoint and some trivia is always mixed in. The style of all dialogs are like this:
- The character starts saying something
- What he is saying is not showin
- MC in his head says "in summary he said this", and then recaps. It gets really annoying.

The story itself is actually good, but all the annoying stuff and poor writing makes it boring and hard to read. <<less

Terribly written.

The premise is just like any Isekai web novel out there, mostly self-strengthening, exploring the world, adventuring, magics & swords, creating stuff stuff from knowledge of the MC's previous world, etc. Nothing new here, nothing to complain about. Interesting even, for the most part. The political intrigue and drama COULD be interesting, if only this author have have heard of something called editing.

Because this novel needs that. Badly.

Here's why: The style of writing is (mostly) from the POV of the main character, who for some reason keeps doing long... more>> and arduous branching monologues that goes nowhere, speculating about useless things that don't matter at all.

I mean, I know this is a web novel and there isn't much to expect in terms of quality, and I'm not here to read elegant prose. But I don't think I'm the only one who thinks that to keep readers interested, you also have to keep them from getting bored. <<less

The quality in this novel slowly got worse and worse and all I could see was a bunch of text. Random plot twists are thrown in aswell for no apprent reason. The MC seems stupid as times in his decision making capabilities. If you are going to read this novel; don't bother.

Spoiler

The author then decides to put elements of cheating at chapter 76, straight after his wedding.

[collapse]
It's a waste of time and is better to find something else.

This novel has cheating and not the isekai type.

Spoiler

He kills his brother and prefer to have s*x with his widow who has 2 KIDS rather than his 5 wives! He has 5 amazing wives and chooses the single mother of a brother that tried to assassinate him. Seeing how this novel plays out, the kids will obviously try get revenge on him. I guess he seems like a motherf**er to them.

The main character... is so bad. It's just another novel with the same Japanese beta guy that gets used by everyone with Ecchi here and there but ofcourse nothing happens which really makes you wonder.

The thing that made me hate this story the most is the lack of imagination- Coupled with the somehow mediocre translation- Yeah sorry but its true.

This novel might work for you if you haven't read alot of novels before but if you already have then this will only give you a major headache- And no its... more>> not the same as Mushoku Tensei as someone else posted. Atleast that one has some suspense. <<less

Good, then boring.

Pro

    • Interesting story overall.
    • Interesting and slightly more realistic than usual feudal family structure.
    • Main character is calm and not super immature.
    • No level like magical system with status screens and so on, but a more real world like "analog" feeling.
    • Translation isn't bad (though onomatopoeia are kept in later chapters, and it's annoying and cringy to see a good translation riddled "Ano" and other "Jaa")
Con

    • Summary of the story on every damn chapter, seriously super annoying.
    • Nonsensical local money to yen translation. Economy 101 : no exchange of goods between Japan and the different world means no possibility of any exchange rate.
    • Excess of little details while there is no big main character development is boring in the later chapters.
    • I ultimately didn't feel any attachment to the main character, and that's what killed the story for me.

I actually quite enjoyed the early chapters of this novel. It has a fairly good setting in a developing remote region where his father is a lord.

Learning to be a member of society and of his family and about the fief and its responsibilities is pretty interesting.

Then the MC starts grows old enough to venture out of this fief and go to nearby towns, the capital and the country, and the story derails completely:

  • He suddenly gets surrounded by girls out of nowhere who become the base for an annoying harem series
  • He makes inordinate amounts of money rapidly removing any kind of interesting developments with the world and society
  • He loses responsibility and family ties since now he's just an adventurer who doesn't have to take bother with fief politics anymore
  • And then, he goes off and slays invincible monsters, becoming a rising rod in the capital, beloved of king and nobels, betrothed to the most loli-big boobed heroines there...
long story short: human drama is non-existent and you just have some really terrible self-realisation wet dreams with an incompetent hero from then on. All the more a shame, since the premise and world building seemed good initially.

Reviewed at 36 chapters and rated 4:

In many novels, the fact that the MC has lived in another world and was reincarnated or transported seems like it has little contribution to the story. In Hachinan though, we will always be reminded of it in many occasions. But it’s not because the MC can’t adapt to the new world. As a transported person, understandably, he was homesick and wished to eat his world’s food. As a transported person, it’s normal that he makes many comparisons between worlds, and a bit bewildered... more>> at the new world’s magic, social, and political system. As a transported person too, make sense that he tried to apply his previous life’s dealing ways to the new ones (albeit ended in failure). As he subsequently increased his understandings and his own standing, befriending many people and interact with more, the readers too got our own chance to evaluate the novel’s world and identify with the MC’s plights. All in all, Hachinan is a sufficiently good novel. However, the author often took a roundabout way in explaining things, or repeating similar information throughout the chapter, while actions are told in a relatively shorter narrative; thus the pace is a bit choppy, sometimes can be a bit boring and sometimes too brief. <<less

It was interesting in the beginning. Only in the beginning. The story starts to turn bad the moment he got involved with the nobilities.

Why? In the beginning, he was walking toward his "dream". He worked to get what he wanted. It wasn't unpleasant to watch him getting stronger for this dream either.

Then came the leash. Yes, this character is a loyal dog. He is used by everyone for their own profits, just like the king or his "patron":

[Owner] : Go kill the dragon! It's dangerous, and you may die, but... more>> don't worry, you will get tons of money!

[MC] : I don't want to, but if I flee to another kingdom, I will be lost (aka, it's scary). I suppose I got no other choice then.

It wouldn't be that depressing if he was juste naive. This indecisiveness makes him just a wimp, or a M.

Also, girls keep falling for him for no reason at all, or maybe his fame and his money. Hummm..., surely the money yes.

And this is it. Antagonists? Are we talking about those stereotypical buffons that just serve as foothold to increase the fortune of the MC?

To summarize, It's a shame:

  • It's not interesting to read the story of a boy who got lead by the nose by everyone. He has the power to change things (and his situation), but only use his power for the things that others requested of him.
  • I don't feel any attachment toward a MC who got everything without working for it. Money? He went from pennyless to millionaire in less than 20 chapters. Territory? He tries his best to avoid all the responsabilities by saying that he wants to work as an adventurer. But do not worry people! I will use the power of money to make everyone happy! This make that part bland.
  • The story is really difficult to read. For the most part, it's just the MC inner thoughts, nothing else. Yes, you can call that a monologue. And yes, it inhibits the development of the rest of the characters.

okay, as far I could see and this is a poor written story. It is so long and the subject of this story is all about politics and feudal dispute that make the story none sense. why ? the simple answer is the MC were just become a certain government politician in a certain kingdom which himself has nothing to do with it. Oh, the matter he could use magic is due to the author on following the trend of common novels where every MC were able to use... more>> magic but it was not used for going of exploring the fantasy world instead for government building projects.

Politics, Feudal dispute, Greedy Noble, Betrayal.... and Corruption. The MC just become an subject of dirty noble influence. what a long chapters and a waste of time which the MC have no ambition/objective at all. The worst part he just become the current king underling.

So, I suggest do not waste your time reading this. it just politics and feudal scheme story. No adventure at all. <<less

This story just has too much talk about nothing.

90% of this novel is talking about nobles and their plots 5% is land management and the last 5% is average action.

Cloak and dagger? Umm mostly just some idiot plots something and the MC doesn't have to do anything because the other guy ends up self destructing spectacularly that causes more trouble to the MC than the actual assassination or political maneuver.

Gaining strength through struggle? If you call getting taught a bunch of magic from a dead mage and also having a... more>> massive mana pool a struggle then you need your head checked.

OP MC? Wouldn't know because more than half the time he just has to sit back or cast one spell on one opponent and really has not had a human opponent that chose to fight him physically.

Money? It just gets handed to him so he has no money problems and doesn't have anything to spend it on.

Harem? He got one for free as a noble and every noble even pushes their daughters on him. Something about the duty of being a noble is to have a ton of kids then later have a headache of what to do with them when they grow up. I got the impression really fast the only purpose of a woman in that kingdom is to warm the bed.

Monsters? The world has them but the type he has encounters can be counted on one hand since he is too busy talking for chapters on end about noble politics that are so pointless that it is like listening to the same political lecture over and over again. <<less

I have looked at some of the reviews before mine and I want to clear up some misunderstandings. First this story is not about and OP mage that battles evil and roams freely. It is about a powerful mage who is a reincarnated japanese man being restricted by the rules of a nobles. Since he has no experience with this he frequently gets pulled into things. If you are looking for a fight heavy novel this is not for you. If your looking for a uncontrolled OP MC this is... more>> not for you. This story is a lot more about the day to day life of a noble in a fantasy land. <<less
