I Became the Strongest With The Failure Frame【Abnormal State Skill】As I Devastated Everything


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

A high school student that has lived as a mob-character ―― Mimori Touka

During the school trip Touka and his classmates are summoned to another world by Goddess Vysis.

According to the goddess who summoned them, summoning so many heroes with high ranks such as S-ranks and A-ranks is very unusual.The growth rate of E-Rank heroes is lower when compared to growth rate of A-Ranked and S-Ranked heroes

However, Touka was the only person with the lowest rank ―― he was an E-rank hero.

His status is overwhelmingly low in comparison to his classmates. Moreover, Touka’s peculiar skill is supposed to be an absolute failure 【Abnormal State Skill】and therefore he was abandoned and thrown away into disposal ruins…

Thus the former mob-character and abandoned hero, will absolutely become the strongest as he advances and strike back.

Well it's a pretty generic MC is underestimated so therefore disposed off / kicked out from the start but secretly OP revenge story. While it is explained later on it's fairly weird how the MC + author tries to push so hard for spells like paralyze, sleep and poison are the worst of the worst both in the setting but also in games or stories in general. Which makes no sense to be honest since crowd controll skills in all iteration are among the most powerful skills ever. When it comes to the MC's power and the title


The explanation given is that the chance to inflict them is extremely low but even so in this world they affect everything and everyone. So undeads or even monsters that don't have a body made of flesh but made of stone or whatever would normally not be affected by poison are instead outright killed by it. It's also possible to endlessly stack these kinds of effects and once someone is affected by poison it works until the target dies.

So the spells are pretty OP just that by my guess they only have a 5% chance or something to affect someone, it's never explained outside of it being extremly low, but because every summoned hero get's an awakened skill and in MC's case his skill gives his status effect a 100% chance to affect someone. It is kinda weird though that MC for some reason has his skill with no explanation given active from the start while every other hero has to somehow activate them.

The MC also quickly get's to almost lvl 2000 in the first few chapters and get's like +5000 in every stat but like in many of these stories stats are just a number and have next to no effect. Which makes me wonder why the authors even include lvls or stats. I mean the MC doesn't get faster, stronger, tougher and so on and instead he stays the same as a normal human.


Overall the story is fairly generic here in that the MC is secretly OP, get's kicked out, quickly get's a heroine and starts building his harem.

Anyone who rates this below 4star I can confirm they haven't read it.

(ps upvote if u believe what I say isn't wrong, as am annoyed to see reviews with 1 star at the top)

Most important point is Every freaking thing that happens in the novel that people say is an error has a reason which is explained later

but no ppl, don't even read forward rip

This is one of the best stories which despite being an isekai doesn't suffer even 1 of the common problems of the genre

    • MC isn't a Beta tr*sh as seen in all isekais
    • MC is cruel and merciless to his enemies
    • MC isn't thick headed
    • World building is perfectly done and side characters have depth unlike most Series
    • MC is op but has enough competition

As for those who complain

Romance side:


At start MC ignored his companions feelings of love for him but later he clearly tells them he has a problem (read trauma) bcuz of which he can't accept such feelings until he is ready. On a side note he also jokes time to time about how easy the FL's heart is to capture if certain conditions are met


Passive most of the time:


MC is mire of a think tank than a muscle brain, so he doesn't procced unless he knows he can win. So he usually waits and observes too much which makes readers

dislike it


Doesn't fight much:


from the start MC is weak in actual physical

battle, his strength is in his skills which have some annoying restrictions, but as long as he can activate it, its op. As 90% of time he fights stronger enemies he needs to search for openings to exploit. And his main enemies are literally walking calamities so a single mistake can kill him


Annoying world building


Cant deny this as it has an overwhelming amount of world building, I personally enjoy it but remaineder that some of it is actually hints for later in the story, its fine if u skip as MC will mention that part when its needed


Too much time to side characters :

all characters are well built with their own personalities so it is nice, especially when the irritating ones will get their due it is satisfying.

Ps the goddess isnt as much as a schemer as MC or other plotters in the novel

I don't know wether it's the translators fault or the original story but this is horribly written. Everything is so s*upidly convoluted it takes about a paragraph for the MC to take a single step. Read this:

... more>>

The washroom was behind the inn.

It seems that the washroom is semi-outdoors.

The day is about to end.

However, there was still a lamp on a pillar that I could use as a light.

This place also had a tarpaulin on the eaves of the roof.

I look around the washroom.

This place had the atmosphere of those self-service coin-operated laundromats.

Well, there are none of those convenient laundry machines here.

There are several clothes lines that stretched out in the room attached from one wall to the wall opposite of it.

There are already some clothes that were hanging on the clothes line.

If we're talking about carelessness, this should be one of them.


The entire story is written like this, it's literally written as a massive list, no flow, rhythm or rhyme to it at all. Everything happens so slowly and events are so forced like him finding

the slime. It just came out of no where and was so forced just to drive the plot and have him get a pet slime for some reason.


The people in this story, where do I start... No one seems human. It's probably a by product of the bad listing writing but everyone seems like a mindless drone. They're either really bad just for the sake of being bad; they have no feelings or ideas, they're just there to drive the plot. Or they're super blandly neutral/good and you forget about them as soon as the story progresses.

Spelling mistakes are also rife in the story but seeing as it's a translation it can be overlooked. A beta would really help though. I came from the manga where 4 chapters there went through the first like 30 chapters here so I skipped a bit (which shows just how little substance this story has). But that's probably a good thing as I would never have been able to get to chapter 45+ otherwise. Yes this is a harsh review but I am being honest, sorry if this upsets people but I think it needs change if it wants to actually go somewhere. <<less

The goddess who summoned the heroes is disgusted in the protagonist because he is an E rank, so she comes with a plan to use him to further her plans or whatever but her plan is to sacrifice an E rank by sending him to some dangerous ruins in front of his class. This seems like the most ret*rded plan, I mean that's not how you show your future heroes that they can trust their goddess I mean all she did was create a rift between the heroes and her

but somehow all the other students expect one ate it up because idk their superiority complex came out and curb stomped their common sense.

Mediocre generic revenge isekai

This feels like a novel written by someone with an isekai checklist who genuinely doesn't care about whether or not the story is good, just that they hit the checklist

Revenge isekai checklist

OP Bullies

Weak starting status

bit*h goddess

Two +/- 1 female classmates who are "good" aka future harem members

Leveling dungeon

+1000 levels

Elf girl

Conveniently not on the checklist? Interesting plot, character development, any sense of pacing, any meaning to the levels at all

It's true that we've seen this set-up a million times before (MC is summoned and then cast away because of his seemingly tr*shy skill, which soon turns out to be OP af) but people love it -- myself included -- which is why new authors keep trying their own spin on it and lots of us keep reading.

While this story isn't perfect, I'm glad to say that it's at least enjoyable. The biggest flaw this story has is that the MC tends to linger on a topic and keep repeating... more>> himself.

Story: His eyes were fixed on me. Upon me. At me. His eyes.


Other than that it's fun to read if you enjoy seeing isekai MCs using their cheat to quickly get stronger, but if you don't then there's probably not enough subtance here to keep you happy. <<less

Dropping it here I think. Every chapter spends 30+ paragraphs explaining what could be summarized in about 5 sentences. Most characters are evil for the sake of being evil. None of the characters are particularly interesting. Motivations seem questionable or nonexistent. It's basically "X chose to do Y because that's where I want the plot to go". All of which takes several pages to describe, of course, because the author loves making a thesis out of the MC walking 5 steps. Oh and pretty much every problem the MC has... more>> overcome so far has been due to some random ass skill or item he has/found that makes little to no sense. <<less

The story is your typical revenge isekai, though the story is stretched out quite a bit.

To give some perspective, in chapter 70 ... more>>

The MC has joined together with the elf in the cover, and not in a romantic way, more as a companion-ish way. And so far 4 major things happened

  • MC gets sent to dungeon
  • MC gets out of the dungeon as an OP (pressumably) level 1200+
  • MC Encounters Main Heroine (pressumably)
  • MC joins together with the Main Heroine.

Ofc its other minor stuff happens too but theyre not really worth mentioninh but I'd say we've just finished arc 1 at chapter 70 which kinda rounds up to a volume length in light novels.


Tbh the novel is fine if you like these sorts of stories, I like them too but this one is just boring to me, maybe its just me being jaded but maybe also because the MC turns into a generic edgy JP MC after he escapes the dungeon. It honestly feels like a bad copy of arifureta, there was some interesting dynamic with the classmates at the start having this supposed dark hero but it becomes f*ck all so far since we barely see it affect the story much.

Maybe it will later, much much later on considering the pace of the novel. But I'm gonna have to drop it there, even the elf girl isn't all that interesting and I don't see anything to look forward to apart from the "revenge" part and to be honest, I'm not willing to brave through the long winded chapters to get to that point.

TL;DR It's a generic revenge isekai with interesting character building at the start, but just becomes a boring chore to read through after the "prologue". <<less

It is somehow a typical group summoned to another world novel. The first few chapters were too dark but it gets much better after he leaves the dungeon. So this review is about the story after he leaves it. It may contain some spoilers.

The MC overall is not bad (after leaving the dungeon), he uses his brain for the most part and is not overtaken by revenge. He does not have any problems killing people but also do not go about killing anyone. He thinks about everything in regards to... more>> usefulness but also considerate to the people he trusts.

The abnormal state skills can theoretically kill anyone (except the goddess) but it is not that simple, he needs to see the enemy and have time to recites the spill (like saying Paralyze) and it has number limitations.

There is no romance or harem yet, the elf girl on the cover will follow him eventually but take a while for them to trust each other, so it is a good point for the novel that it doesn't have fallen in love from the first site or s*ave follower in it.

The level system is one of the downsides of the novel, it is too confusing. First, as I understand, only the heroes from another world have levels and experience, so there is no level for the monsters only experience depending on the strength of the monster. And there is stats correction depending on the hero's rank. The S-class heroes get much more stats that E-class heroes, so level 1000 E-class may equal to level 150-200 S-class or so in stats. And there is a level for the skills depending on the usage of it.

The other downside is the other heroes, yes it has the type that became a**** when they first arrived in the other world and I couldn't understand how do they think. In general, there are two chapters about the other heroes every 15-20 chapters of the novel, so it acceptable.

After the dungeon arc, the story goes around world-building and character development so the pace is a little slow. So to sum up, it is not a bad novel if you like this genre and if you dropped the novel because of the first few chapters give it a second chance at least few chapters after he leaves the dungeon. <<less

It was an 8.5/10 but then chapter 298-299 hits like an april fools joke on christmas. It's like eating a sweet cake, but the last bite suddenly tastes like carolina pepper.

... more>>

They killed Seras' character so bad in only 2 chapter; just to make her a damsel in distress. It's like seeing Guts from Berserk lose helplessly against a single normal goblin, and Casca saves him oh so gallantly. The sheer unrealness was so bad, I'm never gonna pick up this novel again.

Seras Ashrain was supposed to be strong, actually one of the strongest in the world, enough to make the strongest character Civit Gartland wants to challenge her. She's smarter than most people since she learned from the best (Touka) plus she's a wise and experienced army commander who also received education from the princess of Neia.

She is way more stronger than the strongest beastman of the faraway country, stronger than the Blood Arena Champion, physically on par or maybe even stronger than John Doe who is the second strongest character after Civit Gartland (Vysis doesn't count). She grows even stronger with each battle. Touka taught her a lot of battle strategy and tactics and also psychology warfare.

She is by no means ruthless, but the only people she cared about is Touka and the people Touka cared about. She stopped Touka from saving the Prime Minister too quickly even though the PM was being brutalized. I mean she even abandoned her previous squadmates and the princess of Neia whom she served just to survive, so why in ch298 would she even try to save some random corpse which Touka doesn't gave a single f*ck about, instead of protecting the carrier of Forbidden Curse whom Touka risks his life multiple times to get? She just abandoned her ONE job given to her by her beloved master Touka...

She is a battle genius, surpassing other geniuses (again, except Civit Gartland). Yet you tell me she lost helplessly without even inflicting a single scratch nor a single breeze against a greenhorn A rank hero who is an established idiot, who only relies on his hero skill?

Losing against a mentally fragile opponent who got traumatised+mental breakdown in just one battle...? Also she failed to perform an ambush on him, an opponent with no battle sense whatsoever...

Whaaaaat? Even though almost every battle they have against stronger and more perceptive enemies is done using ambush, strategy and deceit.

She suddenly couldn't cover the distance of 20 meters even though she could outspeed John Doe; the fastest human (besides Civit) ; in his own game...

She suddenly doesn't have her bow to attack from a distance like she used to attack so many monsters and human-faced before...

She helplessly lost in terms of physical, tactical, and mental fight against an enemy she's supposed to be superior to in every single aspect possible...

All this mu*der against Seras' character just to make a cheap almost-r*pe scenario featuring a prince without his black horse saving a damsel in distress? Seriously author? Are you out of your mind? For me, this is the biggest disappointment in 2022.

If you want a story you won't regret reading till the end, then unfortunately this isn't it.

I drop this at chapter 82.

... more>>

Why? Because I realized that the only thing the MC needs to be unstoppable (except the goddess) is an artifact powerful enough defensively to make him resist at least 3 seconds or a person powerful enough (Elf-chan) to protect him for the few seconds it takes to say a word.

In chapter 82 we can say that he has already killed the strongest personage in the world (apart from the goddess and maybe the heroes or the goddess servants) with two words "Paralyze" and "Poison".

So... Until the last boss (probably the goddess) notices he is alive, he should be able to do anything he wants without real danger.

This is a story (82 chapters in) where there is no real fighting, he just needs time enough to say "Paralyze" and that's it.

I am just going to write this to cancel out some people's high evaluation of this crap worth of a novel. First, it takes way too long for him to get sent into the dungeon and waste like 20 or so chapters just for the brief introduction which could be handled in about 5 chapters. Someone said he is smart and uses his brain, no he doesn't overthink and overcomplicate things. Not only that the way the classroom acted was too cliche seeing someone die or get sent to their... more>> death right before your eyes will most of the time people will say this is unfair and will try to deny it or fight back against such tyranny. Now let's move onto the dungeon it is boring as hell especially with the s*upid flashbacks in between which should not have been added or going to the other classmates which are from the girls' side of view who you know will apart of the harem which is s*upid and forced as hell. Now let's talk about realism: he was basically starving and dehydrated in a dungeon after being there in less than a day. A person can survive and not be dehydrated without drinking water for 3 days while someone can live off of just water for weeks to months without food. He keeps acting like not having food or water for more than 4 hours would kill him. The fight scenes are not there or to be more precise all it is is paralysis, sleep, and poison words as fight scenes and a whole bunch of ogooghngh dhhshs as the enemy monster would say with description on how they look when they are dying which it keeps getting repeated over and over again and again.

This is a boring novel with nothing unique about SKIP IT. <<less

It's a fun, straightforward read. The 3edgy5me elements are fortunately kept to a tolerable level.

The thing I find noteworthy is that the MC doesn't come off as an insufferably overpowered psychopath despite the LN title suggesting otherwise, which I think is a big deal in these isekai revenge stories because it helps keep the stakes high and the tension present.

This story is just badly written, at the start you have the goddess dispose of the MC just because he was weak and his entire class other than 1 person just went along with it and the class keeps on trusting and working for the goddess when she killed a classmate for being weak. Then, of course, the op has a brokenly overpowered ability where all he needs to say is "paralyze" and "poison" and then he kills everything, then the author for some reason I can't fathom gives him... more>> gets a magic bag that just creates food from japan. Instead of having the MC eat the monsters or have some food source he gets all of his food, the only food source in the dungeon, for some reason is this s*upid bag. Then later on in the dungeon, he finds a village where old heroes who were "disposed" of are living despite how this dungeon is suppose to not have a single source of food/water. I think the worst part of this story is the leveling system, I still have absolutely no f*cking clue on how it works... The MC is around level 1700 now and yet he is somehow weaker than almost everyone other than his cheat abilities, even if he is an E rank hero or whatever being over 1000 levels above the enemy you would think he would be overpowered but instead there is basically no difference between the level gap. The author just makes the leveling system pointless, the MC leveling up serves no purpose since his fighting style hasn't changed at all since level 1 or level 1700... he just says his skills and fights over, that's it. It's also inconsistent on when he unlocks his shit... after spending all of his time in the dungeon he doesn't unlock a single skill yet obtains new ones after fighting a random weak group outside. This story feels like it was written with the author having a vague idea of the plot line and just writing randomly, the world building is just so sloppily thrown together that it ruins the entire story. Even without the shitty world building the fights are just boring... its basically just sums up to him using his ability, then fights over. <<less

This is average, but in a good way. Better than 99% of all the Isekai tr*sh here but below the 1% that's actually good.

The start is bad, there's no sugar-coating it, but if you manage to read the first 10-20 chapters it only improves from there. YMMV, tho. The pacing is slow here and there, too.

The action's fine. The Touka is a glass "nuke" who's a sitting duck in CQC, so he needs to play smart rather than strong; however, the strategy is always more or less the same but... more>> bigger, so it can become repetitive.

While a revenge story, it's not the extremely bleak type. The edgiest thing the MC does is self-deprecating: "because he wants some (well-deserved) revenge, he surely couldn't be a good person". He's actually more of a normal hero depending how you look at it.

Characterization tends to be both a strong and a weak point. There are many characters with fine concepts and they are mostly written consistently, but the execution sucks a bit, so if the character's been written good, average, or poorly, it'll be that way the whole novel.


Although they hitch early on, no dense no-sense,

the worst part is the romance. The FL is the greatest example of a wasted character, she's there either to be the muscle for the Touka or too be leered by soon-to-be dead antagonist, which becomes worse throughout the novel. <<less

I'm sorry, but tr*sh belongs to the dumpster. This is easily one of the most frustrating novels I've read in my history of reading frustrating novels. The author has the habit of showing and tell, and I'm not talking about them doing it in a linguistically pleasing manner, no.

One line for example reads, "I gripped the sheets of the bed. This shows how deep my feeling is."

You don't say? This occurs a lot throughout the novel. It's written under the assumption that you, as a reader, is s*upid and incapable... more>> of exegesis. Whoever the editor of this garbage is should immediately go to a secluded forest and check out. And not to mention the countless instances where the author exploits otherwise easy battles to provide monotonous dialogues with exposition you and the MC would/should hardly care to know.

In addition to that, what does the talentless author do to "balance" the hurdles our OP MC has to go through?

Through inorganic scheming, of course! You will be subjected to the MC's reality warping conversational skills where-in he interprets a tense situation and the enemy willfully falls to his trap no matter how idiotically unrealistic it is. Isn't it nice? The almighty MC that can instantly paralyze and poison anyone in his visual field has to stoop to using his Jedi mind tricks to lower the poor enemy's guard just so he can display his pseudo-intellectual prowess in all its glory. And don't forget the fact you'll have to sit through all the pointless exposition throughout the entire thing, lol. I'm sure there are more to criticize here, I'll hold out until mayhaps the revenge arc. It's still possible for the pitifully incompetent author to have improved in the later chapters after all. I'm going the little guy a chance.

In conclusion: Budget Arifureta that you shouldn't read if you're irritable and prone to hair loss.

Edit: As of ch217


Jedi Mind tricks still exists

Plots are dragged on for too long

Random POV skips

Characters have inconsistent speech patterns with a lot of "thought". And by a lot, I mean A LOT.

Needs a Shoujo ai tag because of the random Yuri between his classmates.

I have really enjoyed this novel, it's one of the few that I have stuck with and check often. It's definitely not for everyone. But if you enjoy an MC that is different from other transmigrators/ people of the new world and has a non-normal personality then I'd say give it a shot.

It's a shame, the setting is pretty good and interesting with a few unique idea but it's so badly exploited.

Like someone said, it's a pretty decent revenge isekai but why the totally black and white morality ?

Every single girl the MC saves is a pure hearted girl with a dark past, every single men he fight is an utterly despicable evil monster, every single decent man exists only to get used and destroyed by the evil Goddess.

The MC pretend to be a bad boy dark and edgy but no one... more>> buy that, not even the other characters who call him out as a big softy...


I found it rather good up to the death of the world's strongest with the MC going against the "rules" of this kind of stories by killing him instantly instead of having a revenge fight at the climax of the story but after that it's more conventional and goes downhill.


If you try to write a mature story why not graduate out of kindergarten morality ?

As the story goes, I'm 99% sure that the Goddess is the one behind the revival of the Demon King and she use him to gather miasma to extend her life. It would be so cliché.

You have a lone Goddess that is the only one keeping humanity together to fight back against the Demon King, she fought him for centuries, protecting humanity as a whole even if she sometimes had to take harsh decision and sacrifice people for the sake of victory, on top of that she has to deal with often selfish and cowardly heroes from another world and coral them, flatter them and coax them towards rescuing her world or it would be destroyed.

She could be an heroic figure with plenty of valorous and righteous devotees with a MC who acts like a prick at the beginnings, get exiled and decide to take revenge against the Goddess even if it means the victory of the Demon King and the destruction of the world.

As the MC discover the world, bonds with the locals and learn more about the burden of the Goddess, he could start to waver, reconsider his revenge or not and avenge himself even if it's ruins the world.

That would make the whole story a lot more interesting but no, the MC can only be a good guy, right ?

So the Goddess and her followers have to be utterly despicable, corrumpt and evil to a ridiculous point, this way the MC can kill them without any doubt about his own morality, he truly is in the right.

The lastest plot with the Arachne in the Faraway City is incredibly dumb.

Once again, the author create a good setting : a closed city on the verge of collapse, a bunch of warriors wanting revenge against humanity, a bunch of civilians fearfull but aware that the situation is dire and something had to be done or the city will face destruction, you can take that and make an interesting story but no, not in this novel !


Instead you have a leader who is supposedly incredibly clever take incredibly dumb decisions because it is too confident in himself and the MC who save the day because he is so clever and school the leader who recognise his faults and that the MC is better than him.


Some said it was a paradoy or a caricature of a revenge isekai, it may be the case, that would explain why the author can create a good setting and completely ruin it with a dumb plot.

But I would judge that as chuuni syndrome from the writer who want to write a dark and edgy story but is unable to write a true evil MC and is settling some grudges through his story's characters.

It's a shame that this setting won't ever reach its full potential. <<less
