It started out well until the translator changed. Yeah yeah the guidelines say to review the story instead of the translator.


This site contains links to english translations of asian novels. It's kinda of a huge IMPORTANT part that we actually understand it. Of course it's a big deal! People need to know whether they should read a novel or not!

... more>> Translation: I don't recommend it. BAMtranslations is really bad. Silver lining is alright though. It's just that they dropped it.

Story wise: The protagonist is fairly overpowered. The story is entertaining despite it. It's interesting seeing the world's background lore of how it came to be. The protagonist is even hinting that the game system included might have something to do with what happened. I've always liked it when they actually have a lore explanation for the game system instead of saying "that's just how it is lol let's never talk about this again". It hasn't gotten far though, but I'm sure they will expand on how this new world came into being.

I can't tell you much about when the translation changed though because it was a bit hard to understand what was actually going on. I kinda got the gist of it, but it wasn't really enjoyable when you can't even tell who's talking. I also had to reread things to figure out what they meant. Many times, i'd just give up trying to understand and continue reading.

You know, we actually need to understand what's happening to review the story. So not allowing us to review the translation doesn't really cut it.

It's like saying "You don't need to translate anything! Just write random english words that makes no sense and call it a translation. No one is allowed to complain in the reviews anyway!" <<less

I... have high hopes for this novel as there are very few good novels with this kind of plot and so far the plot and pacing are excellent without any weird tropes or cliches and is even reasonable... more>>

i mean I don't know bout you but if I spent a 100+ years alone on a frozen mountain then suddenly a man who is handsome, talented, caring, good cook, seems to are about me and even spends a full year with me... I would probably "bend" much less an already "straight" female


So I can say nothing but I have high hopes for this novel <<less

I'm reading the chinese translation so it kinda go far ahead of the sliver lining ver.

The illustration is really beautiful (as expected from Katsurai)

The story have an undertone that the world is in a big problem that he will get into later.

... more>> I won't spoil anything about the story thought =)).

All the girl have personality and there own story is good written.

MC is OP but he enjoy the fight by adding reduce stat into his weapon so he can't accidently killed opponent when needed.

He is not the only one got isekaied thought. And not only those login till the last minute got isekai'ed. <<less

ELF GIRLS BANZAI!!!!!! I freakking love elf girls. Especially silver-haired blue-eyed elf girls.

Whew okay now with that off my chest, I can do a proper review. First the premise. It's a pretty standard isekai setup. Guy plays a MMO, then gets stuck or transported inside of it. We've seen it before with Overlord, The New Gate, Death March, and others.

As for how well it's executed? This one is pretty mediocre. It starts off with a lengthy introduction to the actual MMO, with scenes of the MC playing in it with... more>> his friends. A HUGE amount of time was invested into explaining the MC's gimmick, which is some kinda of sword that has customize able passive attributes he can swap into.

Now this COULD have been potentially interesting. In my opinion what the author should have done was make the amount of attributes small in number but versatile in scope. If the MC only had a limited number of skills to slot into the sword then the readers could have a rough idea of the MC's limitations. Then the MC can use his powers creatively to solve problems. Instead what we got is the opposite of that. The sword literally has hundreds of possible skills and uncountable combinations. What this does is basically give the MC a cheap easy out for every possible situation. Every time the MC gets into a pinch, he can just pull out a previously unmentioned skill from the countless hundreds he has. It destroys any possible tension from battles. Basically it's super lazy writing. If the author just wanted the MC the be blatantly overpowered he didn't need to waste so much time setting up such a complicated but ultimately pointless system in the first place.

Next is the World Building. When it comes to isekai stories, I think the world building is pretty critical to making things interesting. So far though, we don't have much to go on. The author has not focused too much on the world and setting. It's still early so I'll reserved judgment.

Now for characters. As long as you have interesting characters, everything else can more or less be forgiven. From purely visual design, I really like the characters. The whole Demon King look is hilariously over the top and charming. And of course, ELFFFFFFFF! ARGH A CRITICAL HIT. Plus magnificent art by Katsurai Yoshiaki. Unfortunately, that's about all the things I can find praiseworthy. The MC's personality doesn't stand out at all. It's just a generic isekai self insert MC with nothing else too it. The whole Demon Lord look is completely not used in anyway. In some novels a Demon-lord look is leveraged with some personality ticks or twists to make it more interesting. See Overlord or Isekai Maou to Shoukan Shoujo. Then there's the main female lead.... there's really nothing special to her besides being a beautiful elf.

The writing itself is also a bit disjointed. There isn't a lot of descriptive language used so it's hard to get grasp on how locations look and feel. This isn't that big a problem, but the character interactions are also glossed over. The author uses a lot of "Tell" instead of "Show". For example after the first meeting of the hero and heroine, there's an instant time skip that glosses over their reactions. The MC literally just tells the reader what happened. We could have gotten some nice scenes of the two slowly bonding over various events. Then suddenly a whole year passes with a few snippets of dialogue between the two. It's hard to get a good feel about what exactly the two feel for each other. It's a lot of wasted potential!

Ah well............... for some reason I still gave this novel a 4, but to be honest that's mostly all because of the art. I'm just such a simple man. I see elf, I click like. If I were to judge this LN by the writing I'd give it a 3 at most. It's very generic and doesn't really innovate too much for the formula. If that's your cup of tea then you'll enjoy this novel. <<less

Kinda plain out bad (for now) but with promise. Beginning just starts up and bam with another character of his and some silly sappyness. With only 5 chapters jack sh*t has happened except for major time skip of just him... just chillin? Just... hanging around with a female elf character he made before he isekai'ed

I'll change this when there is something to actually review past what I've mentioned
