Honestly don’t hope for anything too much with this novel. The MC gets bullied for basically no legitimate reason (cuz he’s fat and ugly???). Like there are so many fat and average looking people I just can’t. Then he’s such a yes man it’s ridiculous. It makes me cringe how he gets used and pushed around. At first I hoped he was at least a little untrusting but currently he’s just a doormat....

Prepare for a long one, I have a lot to say about this novel (I already bombarded my friend about it, now you have to suffer too).

I came into this thinking this'll be another one of those typical "loser gets badass because of cheats, he breezes through all obstacles with his OP abilities and all the (zero personality) girls want his D because he's so awesome" harem isekai, but this one is unexpectedly wholesome?! (Seriously I went "harem and wholesomeness? how the f*ck does it- that is illegal!)
I... more>> mean, it's a harem, painfully obviously so (we're at volume one, seven chapters into the story, and there's already 3+ potential love interests) and it's also pure wish-fulfillment of an ugly bullied loser becoming handsome and strong thanks to the titular cheat ability. Nothing new or revolutionary here really.

The thing that makes the difference in my eyes is the execution.
First, he isn't permanetly transported to the other world - he can go back and forth as he likes. He could just stay there and leave behind his life on earth (a thought he actually had at some point) but he doesn't. He tries to balance both sides and live life to its fullest with what he has.
Second, he doesn't get instantly badass and confident. He's lived all his life being shunned so much for his ugliness and incompetence in basically everything that he has a really hard time adjusting his mindset. He consciously knows he isn't the same as before, but his subconscious lags behind. Especially when it comes to his appearance, the thing he's been bullied for the most (to the point where he didn't even consider the possibility that his face might have changed despite literally his whole body changing drastically). It takes time and work for him to be more confident in himself and that process is very satifying to see I think.
Third, the protag has a realistic personality and is just likable in general, to me at least. He's a sweet and kindhearted fellow who despite his hard lot tries his best whenever he can (the few people that saw past his appearance, like his grandpa, agree that he's really nice). Several times it's shown that people just feel very comfortable around him (you know how with some people, you just talk to them and feel calm and relaxed? yeah). His extremely low self esteem can be a bit annoying, but it's understandable and realistic. And again, I like his process of slow improvement.
Fourth, the "harem members" are quite good characters in their own right and they don't flock to the protag just because he's badass or hot or sth - at this point at least, they have a crush on him at most (some are only potential for now) and each has their own reason for liking him, but their feelings generally began with simply liking him as a person. The interactions are sweet and realistic too. Overall, I can see why there's more than one person interested in him and it's not "he's the protagonist so he has a harem despite the protagonist having no qualities to justify that". (but I have to be honest, I like the ones on earth more than the other world's...)
Fifth, the story is less about pure action and showing-of-the-MC's-badassery but more about human interaction and character growth. It's about the protag getting a new outlook on live, meeting genuinely nice people that are there for him (seriously some of the "side characters" are great, I love Hikari-san in particular, he's the best), confronting and overcoming his past instead of the escapism common in the genre. The cheat abilities actually take a more supportive role while his own choices and actions are in the focus most of the time.

All in all, this is the kind of story you don't read for its plot, but for its characters and their interactions. It's really sweet and wholesome and so far, I'm really enjoying it (and hope the author won't ruin it in the following chapters, please)
Also I recommend the manga, the art is good and also shows the things I like about the novel really well (the MC drawn too damn adorable sometimes), takes a while to update tho (it has 5 chapters translated so far, v1ch4 part4 of the novel). <<less

It's a fun novel if you're looking for something to kill time. It not really for those who are really detail oriented. But I suggest this book for people who are just looking for something to just read. It's not the best novel but it is interesting.

"Oh I got a cheat, oh someone said something to me, oh I'm so spineless I must respond in an even more absurd manner than what is considered politically correct in order to try to avoid offending that pebble by the sidewalk."

The plot goes nowhere, the conversations are childish, what could have been an interesting read exploring different aspects of becoming op were instead ruined by a generic spineless MC.

I was expecting a good read because of the good reviews but it became frustrating to read instead. I'm giving this a 3 star because its just good since its not bad but its not excellent either, its just good nothing more nothing less.


Spoiler's ahead read at your own risk

1. There's no proper conclusion on the bullies, after the MC slims down they just got shock and the main bully talked to the MC if MC is a transfer student, MC reveals who he is and bully is shocked and... more>> their teacher comes in and the conversation stops there, then MC transfers to a prestigious school and I never heard of the bullies again, just like that after years of bullying thats all they get, a shock, unless the bullies goes out of their way to get owned by the MC, I don't think they would meet again.

2. The heroines are just there to be saved, MC runs out of daily necessities and goes to the convenience store and saves a girl from bad guys, then the girl turns out to be a super ojou-sama and trash talk (it was her butler that did the talking) his abusive twin siblings (they deserved it), too much convenience right there. MC goes to the other world and saved a princess from a general goblin. MC became a temporary model and saves a model from another boxing stalker model. MC watches his classmates play soccer during P.E and saves a female classmate from the stray ball with a super elite kick and goal!! And all the girls fall for MC, like whats up with this repeating troupe?

3 The characters are not fleshed out (yet since I haven't gotten far in the chapters), when the princess was saved from the goblin general she fainted not letting the readers know her better than that she is a tragic princess that getting discriminated because of what happened in the past. Then the MC's new homeroom teacher after transferring to his new school just became known as a female teacher wearing a lab coat and a erot*c loose shirt, she could have been an interesting character.

4. The MC's Boy Friends are much more interesting than the heroines to the point that it made me wonder if there's a Shounen Ai tag...

5. The MC is annoying, I know that he has inferiority complex but he saw his handsome face in the bathroom mirror and he still wonders why are people looking at him. There's also the part where the MC keeps saying that his new classmates in the prestigious school are good people because they treat him on equal footing. Isn't that because you became handsome that they're treating you that way? but well maybe they are good people... whatever.


The MC becomes op and handsome, now there's your pro's. What did you expect? its a wish fulfillment story. <<less

EDIT: I forgot to change the stars! Its should be 5 star for me.

I was reading the Webnovel version because I thought that this has no LN version that is being translated, I also read the raw manga that was already at chapter 5. This actually got a LN one! I just found this just now!!

I really like the story, the MC and the characters surrounding him.

... more>> The others might not like it, but this is my CUP OF TEA!

Thanks Nyx Translations for picking this up!! Please do continue to translate this awesome LN! <<less

It is a decent novel, the only downside that I notice is when MC constantly asking dumb question to himself. Nonetheless it's an interesting novel that you will surely like if you are into a accelerated growth, Handsome OP MC.

I didn't expect much when I started reading this novel and was just trying it out. But if you give it a chance, it actually is fairly decent! There isn't much translated yet, but what is, is enough to get you hooked! So try it out and give it a chance!

This story is mediocre at best and doesn't really have anything going on below the surface. That being said its an "ok" read so I will give it 4 stars.

The whole story reads like the wet dreams of some lowlife- loser get abilities and all of a sudden becomes super strong, super handsome, super rich, all the girls he meets fall in love with him, he gets to go to the best school and becomse popular with everyone.

It's about a guy who's fat and ugly but he stumbles upon a gate to another world gets op weapons kills op monster an becomes op also he can go to the other world and go back to the real world when ever he wants after he gets op his buddy turns thin with a six pack and he becomes a hottie but because he was bullied his self-esteem is so low he doesn't realize that's he's making girls fall in love left and right also he continues to live... more>> in his world while going to the other world for money (he can convert the loot from monsters to millions of yen)

This is not a novel that will make you cry or amazes you so much you start buying merch

It's a simple wish fulfillment novel

But Damm is it a good one <<less

Too heavy on the wish fullfillment vibe.

To the author it feels like what he is telling that all is ok as long as your not ugly. MC is bullied, why? Because he is ugly, MC is abandoned by his family, why again? Its because he is ugly. Yet the moment he became handsome everything changed, I know I'm just being biased but why not just make the MC more average looking then after people got used to him then make him more handsome but what's with the extreme ugly to... more>> extreme handsome, it just reeks of wish fulfullment (sorry for those offended)

It's an isekai with leveling and status. The author made MC stats [email protected] just to control OPness of MC why not just go all the way. Godlike equipment with incredible effect yet not put to good use especially the one that can inflict fatal injury even with the tiniest wound.


Do you even need to invest in strength stat? You have weapons that can when you are level 1/ instakill a level 200 when MC can barely lift/throw the weapon, MCs natural stat gain in strength is enough as it is more than 10 times the normal person why not invest more in AGI for attack speed & evasion or VIT so MC can take more hits


Near the end of volume one in the real world screams stupidity from the reactions of everyone involved. <<less

Well the premise isn't that good and I don't like that type of MC but if you expect something fluffy with a bunch of sterotypical traits to the bone I guess that's the right novel for you, so enjoy it.
