Hellmode ~Gamer Who Likes to Speedrun Becomes Peerless in a Parallel World with Obsolete Setting~


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

Yamada Kenichi is a 35 year old salaryman. Although he’s habitually absorbed in speedrunning through games, he had been lamenting over the current trend of ‘nuregames’* (ヌレゲー).

And as such, he was captivated by a site with the catchphrase “For you, who likes to speedrun through games” and ended up reincarnating in the world of Hellmode.

This is a story about summoned warrior, Allen, and his road to kingship.

As Allen reincarnated as a serf, he knew nothing of this world.
Allen’s story will begin with absolutely no knowledge of the world at all, just like those games he had played 10, 20 years ago.

The gamer MC whos possesed on getting stronger for the sake of it.

Most of what happen in the novel is just MC grinding dungeons like mad, get more powerfull, solve problems that comes his way and get back to griding.

You wont find any impossible situation or intense life and death moment here either.

Its just MC grinding his cheat class and how it pay off in the end.

Its okay enough for a passtime isekai if youre bored.

Hell mode refers to the difficulty setting, but other than increasing the required exp for leveling up (and improving skills) there's no effect other than something that makes it easier for him later on.

Yarikomi is more "restricted play". Not bondage, it means things like "I'll win with only the starter weapon" or "I'll only increase my Strength stat" or "I won't use any consumables". Speed runs are included, but if they talk about those specifically in JP they use the term RTA (real-time attack). This is important because it takes... more>> almost 200 chapters just to meet the real enemies. The majority of the story even including that is grinding exp. The restriction here is "hell mode" and "must start as a serf".

Anyway, this story is super slow, with most of it being a loop of grinding levels and skills -> growth slowing down -> finding a new way to grind -> grinding levels and skills. Relationship progression is slim to none, and even when a beautiful girl he is fond of wants to get closer to him, the main character's only thought is "More importantly, how should I grind my levels next?"

At some point he'll get a party, so it will evolve from just grinding his own levels to grinding the party's levels. And getting equipment for everyone. So exciting!

Get past the first 150? Chapters or so and they'll take a break from grinding for a war, but somehow I feel like the grinding will come back with a vengeance around the part I last read. I don't mind grinding too much so I rated it a 3 but the main character is too machine-like for my tastes. The villains are also fairly weak as characters and only serve as methods to force the protagonist to do something other than grind levels every once in a while. <<less

A very well thought out, planned, and written novel that I highly recommend.

This one reminds me of mushoku tensei. If you liked that then this is definitely something you'd enjoy.

As the title says the MC goes to isekai in try hard mode where it takes him 100x more effort than normal Character to level or skill up. But in return MC gets unlimited potential on growth aspect while others don't.

The author doesn't rush the story, MC starts from when he's born and each Arc walks you through his life and... more>> progress in the isekai world. It's slow but exciting to see the growth of MC and the new skill he obtains. Story does skip through time fairly fast, month at a time, but it's written in such an organized and thoughtful way that it makes sense it's the number one rank on 'syousetsukaninarou' right now.

Not sure if there are any translation out for this, and hopefully it's up to par with the wn, but I highly recommend this WN. <<less
