Hazure Skill “Kage ga Usui” o Motsu Guild Shokuin ga, Jitsuha Densetsu no Ansatsusha


Links are NOT allowed. Format your description nicely so people can easily read them. Please use proper spacing and paragraphs.

Roland is an assassin who, one day, breaks from his team and single-handedly “kills” the demon king.

After returning to the kingdom, the king graciously promises Roland whatever he wants for his heroics. Conflicted in his desires – he hasn’t thought of anything outside of killing for years – he remembers that one of his teammates told him what she plans to do after evil is defeated:

Live a slow life.

And so Roland, with his ability to blend perfectly into the crowd and the disguised demon king Laila at his side, decides to live a – say it with me – slow life.

Love the story and now they are on manga but somehow, this light novel got hiatus or nobody wants to translate it anymore. Wish someone will take this up back because this story by far has out of the box original ideas unlike any OP character I've read so far.

MC is omnipotent and omniscient. He’s supposed to be an assassin of people, but his knowledge literally extends to everything. Some parts of the story are heartwarming but most of it is more predictable than a children’s book. Story would be more tolerable if the author wouldn’t avoid character flaws like the plague.

It's pretty good, even though it's your typical 'female maou falls in love with the mc' and 'many female characters like the mc' kind of WN, it is pretty interesting. The storyline is also not bad. Wish translation becomes more consistent.

Not the best, not the worst. Pretty cliche OP MC, though a little too OP if you ask me. At least it's not full of the same over-used, s*upid cliches. I keep up with it, though not on my faves.

Boring to be honest, no real content that makes me immersed in the novel or holds my attention.

Characters are forgettable and irrelevant, worldbuilding is none really.

Doesn't help that MC will do almost anything if others say it's normal and what normal people do which is poor writing by author.

I tried to read this story twice by turning off my brain and making myself s*upid for the sake of enjoyment, but it's so hard to continue, it's just very unenjoyable! When I tried to just say to myself 'it's fine I read past that part there won't be a same scene again' but then I would get another after another until I can't take it anymore. For an assassin who takes pride of his job and even saying things like "If I was to leave my name behind, that's unmistakably a failure for an assassin." Then the MC supposed to pretend to be a normal person by working as a guild receptionist, but then proceeds to get caught beating up adventurer and also someone witnessed him secretly killing an... more>> adventurer, what's worse the one who caught him was a drunk guy following him. Like wtf? MC could notice someone's gaze from hundreds of meters but then fail to notice some drunk guy tailing after him? Logic hello? You there??? Another problem would be MC is a complete Gary Stu who can do everything and knows everything. It's fine if he's God, that would be a reasonable excuse but he's fvcking not. For some reason MC can do everything and even do it better than others. Like for example, there's a magic spell that was said 'only demon can use' but then the MC asked the demon to teach him and only by listening for a few mins later MC successfully cast the spell!!?? Fvck this shit! Characters in this story are very 1-dimensional, they're either sucking up to the MC singing him with praises or Hate MC with passion and acting as a complete a**hole. There's no neutral character. It's a black and white world. This novel has lots of plotholes and lots of illogical elements in it. Aside from that the Translation is also horrible and confusing.

PS: MC ain't no giga chad. Story: 2/5
Concept: 2/5
Style: 2/5
Characters: 2/5
Translation: 2/5 <<less

I found this when adding a bunch to favorites and decided to try it out. After a couple chapters I was hooked and read 87 chapters straight. I couldn't stop since this story is right in my wheelhouse. Fantasy, Adventure guild, Actual Romance not the joke crap usually seen, Comedy, Harem where MC actually has feelings and not just rocks for brains. Just the right amount of Slice, Fantasy, Action. And Also he actually has the conviction to end someone who is a thread to his plans.... more>> I would rate this 10/5 stars if I could.


I really hope this story isn't going to turn down the Roland is dense and clueless : (He started talking about how he doesn't have a family etc... When he absolutely has a family with Lyla, Dee, IMO should just bring in Millia and Iris (can't tell if he realizes their feelings or not) Surprised he didn't just adopt Rina... He did agree with the king I though to get Almeria pregnant.. Please don't let Roland turn down the dense and clueless path PLEASE!!!

It's a decent light-hearted harem novel. The MC is completely OP and wants to retire to live a "normal" life. While that isn't a unique setting at all, part of the charm is that he has no idea what "normal" is, and can be convinced to do anything as long as the other person tells him that a "normal" person would do that. The MC is also a Chad, he has the demon king in his palm at the beginning, doesn't hesitate too much in sealing the deal with other... more>> females, and has a parade of swooning females surrounding him as well. There's not a description of the action, so that's why there isn't a R-18 tag.

So it's slice-of-life but it's more in that category because the MC is already at the peak so he just needs to sit around and let trouble find him. It's centered around his daily work, but there's also action filled subplots going on consistently. I think the writing/plot is decent with a diverse cast although I will say the chapters seem pretty brief especially since it isn't a particularly dense read.

Overall, nothing brilliant, but a good way to relax your mind <<less

Amazing!! Wholesome!! Ending was good enough. It had some knots untied tho, but such a good read with lovable and alive characters. Do read it my fellow novel readers.

The MC is a Chad. Alpha giga male. The wife is a powerhouse too xD.

Pleasant novel to read. The MC's life is a bit too active for the novel to be a slice of life. Summary pretty much explains it all.

The final arc is a bit lacking. The epilogues leave much to be desired. Other than that, its a nice, simple novel.

Chapter 24 of the manga is equivalent to chapter 54 of the novel. If you are coming from the manga, just know, the manga changes the timing of certain events and crams the filler together. Chapter 13 of the manga is an exmaple... more>> of this. If you choose to read the novel and want to read the extra (filler) chapters you missed, check the translator website to find the chapters unassocaited to the arc grouping they are part of. Chapters 39 and 40 are part of the grouping for chapters 36-40, but are not related to the arc "Missing fruits". <<less
