In a Fantasy world in which a young girl with the Divine Protection of the Hero battles against the Demon Lord. In that world, Red, the elder brother of that young girl Hero, possessing the Divine Protection of the Guide which only grants a high initial level, fought in the initial party of the Hero.

However, with a Divine Protection that only grants a high level but no magic nor martial art nor supernatural ability, he gradually could no longer keep up with the battle and in the end, a companion, a Sage, remarked ‘You are not a true companion’ as he snatched all his equipment and kicked him out of the party with just a single copper sword.

Having his heart completely shattered, Red distanced himself from the battle against the Demon Lord’s army despite knowing that the fate of the world rests on it, aiming to live an inconspicuous life alone at the frontier Zoltan as he earns money to open a herbalist shop by utilizing the knowledge he acquired throughout his journey.

Together with the Half-Elf Carpenter living downtown and the Princess who couldn’t become the Hero’s companion, he aims to live a slow life in the frontier of the world governed by a person’s inborn Divine Protection!

This is a surprisingly well-written story with a well-developed cast of characters that have a lot more depth than how things might appear at first appearance. Also, rather than a generic setting, it looks like a lot of very interesting things are happening behind the scenes.

I like the main protagonist a lot and also enjoy the other characters. "Side-characters" don't really feel like side-characters and also have proper development. The story starts out slowly, but appears to be setting up bigger things very nicely.

I also really appreciate how the romance... more>> is being handled. All in all, a recommended read. I wasn't sure when I first saw the summary or the title, but this story holds a lot of promise and I'm actually very excited to see how things develop later on since a lot of interesting things seem to be in play. 5/5. <<less

I liked the start but it gets boring. I mean I know that the title kind of suggests that, but I'd like to know more about the general affairs of the world, about the hero, about the demons... not some random children's problems and some useless villagers.

Sigh, it's a Japanese novel after all. Don't know why I expected anything from it. Even more than so given its title.

I've no idea how it will continue from now but so far it's been a generic slice of life with a fantasy setting.... more>> The only bright side of this story is that it has no harem. <<less

I hope this one can get a lot of attention.

  1. The story is promising, cuz there is a solid logline. There is still a job for him to do, but he was chased away.
  2. Its a slow life, where you can get enough of cuteness (hopefully) and a life.
  3. No OP (for now) and hope it will.
  4. And I think the MC is not a dump man.
  5. And this review is not certified yet.
  6. Enjoy guys

Translation quality is excellent.

The story itself is a refreshing take on a fantasy slice-of-lifesque story without the worn isekai + cheat combo.

At the beginning I thought the MC was a bit of an idiot but he got better, thankfully he's not a blockhead like so many other characters..

Edit: Eternal praise for a good romance and no harem, seriously.

First let get the premise out of the way. This is a cookie cutter novel straight out of most the recent Isekai/Fantasy novel with game like element. In short, God give blessing/job and you are stuck with it till you die. Not sure if you can advance like from apprentice blacksmith to intermediate or so but you get the jest. These type of novel live on few key things: the execution, characters, interaction and the MC ability to carry the scene.

So far so good is what I gonna say. The... more>> first 10 or so chapter is quite slow but from the name, this is a slow novel. MC sometime belong to the type of missing common sense but in ways that I can believe for a person been raise in royalty/savior of the world type. The equivalent would different value between civilian and government. A normal civi might spend years of his saving for a $100k car while the government can say that a $30 million jets cheap. If you were in a medieval age where the king IS the government, your sense of value would be quite skewed and the MC sometime display something like that.


Doesn't bat an eye a person try to swindle him a gold bar but being calculating with a few copper for daily needs


Romance, the flag that kill many novels. I hate force harem and romance where it doesn't belong/under cook. Realist Hero is a great example of it. So far, the MC has committed to a target and if you read the description, you would found out who. Reading their interaction was fluffy and heart warming because I don't really have high demanding for romance writing. Just make it feel normal, believable and loveable. Real life relationship isn't that flashy anyway.


The only one that might get in between the MC and the heroin would likely be the "yandere?" little sister but it would seem bland if the author make the sister a brocon. Captain of the knightly order is also a women but I can't see her falling for the MC anytime soon


What else there is, MC is competent, interaction is believable, relationship is nice and character is nothing bad so far. Rating might change if author f**k thing up but as of now, go read it. Just remembered this is a slice of life novel so don't expect any fast development or so. <<less

I am current the translator for this novel in another language, actually I translate it from eng -> my own language so I have to say thanks to Tseirp for picking this marvelous novel. Although I dont get anything while doing that but I really love this novel so it was my motivation. And even if someone donate me I would use that money to donate to Tseirp. Too bad my japanese is just barely N5 so I cant do much except waiting for new chapter in eng.

And about this... more>> novel. I think this novel has a very balance between action and romance, the plot is like a flow up and down, although this is Slice of Life but it's not boring because everything is not repeated but the author always adds new thing for every chapter, it'll make you feel like a child that excites to open a present box every day.

The story itself is good, no plot hole (at least until now), the character development is deep, MC is not OP but he knows what to do, the romance surely is the best thing in this novel, MC not dense like usual japanese novel, this is like a gem to me, maybe my english is not good enough to describe it but if you're looking for something relax, sweet or get bored with usual harem novel, op MC novel then try this. <<less

I'm wondering why this novel's rated so low? At the moment the pace is rather slow but that's what I expected from a slice of life novel in the first place. At the moment, I find the premise of the story interesting and still hoping to learn more about the slow adventures of the MC.

A story that deserved 5 star. The current chapter is too early to have main development but we can see now how our MC works hard. How the heroine appreciate him and how he live in peace and spend his life to be an apothecary, with his abundant knowledge in many field. His divine protection is also "Guider", from the word itself we can expect some good development here.

Interesting premises.. Want to know what his Little sister as hero think about him as onii chan and companions so it must be more Interesting if there is multiple POV..

Also we dont know how MC looks like exept for his personal character.. Personally, I think until chapter 5, its monologue, all about MC.. Additional characters like the carperters family, doctor and adventurer only not mean so much in the story..

But keep following until who knows when as long as the stories go well

Its a story of Red the MC who kicked out from hero party and decided slow life in outskirt town with heroine afterthat. Unlike other most MC of non r-18 fantasy story, Red are'nt dense.. He is just inexperience in romance same with the heroine, so somehow both of them make fluffy moment. There's no harem yet (maybe coming soon) and MC isnt much op too, just reasonable strong.

The Divine protection system itself felt unique, tbh im find it bit annoying

... more>>

since only those can decided a job and the behavior of the divine protection owner. Like the hero


Anyway the story itself flowing great as slow life and the translation quality are top quality. <<less

It's alright. It's one of those fantasy worlds where everyone has a job/class/role/gift from birth, but there are problems with that system here. Namely, the gifts are completely arbitrary, so a poor peasant might get "General" or "Royal Poet" or something like that, and a noble might get "Bartender" or something. You can also only level up your gift by killing stuff, so even non-combat classes have to go out and fight.

And lastly, and most central to the story, your given gift will actually affect your personality. Someone with the... more>> Bar Brawler gift will get violent quickly, someone with the Torturer gift will get urges to hurt others, and a Hero will have uncontrollable urges to save people.

It's an interesting premise, and they tie things together pretty interestingly. The MC is alright (if a bit on the negative side), whose thing is that he's high level but can only use common skills all classes can get.

I knock one star off because the slice-of-life parts that are billed as the central theme of the story honestly feel a little weak to me, and I wasn't really sold on the main heroine, who just kind of decides to live with the MC out of nowhere, and the MC decides he loves her back with little development in between. The stuff with the Hero in the second volume is much more interesting. <<less

For those of you wondering whether or not you’ll get bored with this novel because it’s a slow life novel, the answer is most likely not.

It feels like the author adds new information and new dynamics to the story after every chapter. There’s action, suspense, and mystery; characters have consistency in their actions and reasons for doing them.

The author balances the slow life aspect of the novel by inciting incidents in the territory red lives in, and by periodically cutting back to the hero and her companions.

the world is vibrant... more>> and alive, monsters are dangerous, and the divine protection system is both fascinating and terrifying at the same time.

Translation is great and it updates fairly regularly.

things that could ruin this novel:

  • Harem
  • Author gets lazy
  • Spoiler

    red is forced to go with the hero

  • dragging on for too long
Seriously though, I’ve seen so many great novels get caught up in success and “keep it alive” only to kill anything that was awesome about it in the first place. Fingers crossed on this one. <<less

As of chapter 11 it's a good execution of a slice of life genre in a fantasy world. Would be 5 stars if we dropped the "MC is OP but everyone think he is not" trope, and if he had more balls. Note, this is light novel/web novel 4 stars, not literature 4 stars.

Also, the translation quality is far above average (as usual for TseirpTranslations)

It's a bit repetitive in saying the MC is incapable of becoming strong. But he most certainly is not weak. They touch on the technicalities and formalities one must go through in order to do common things in this fantasy world. They use these parts to push the story forward, giving clear reasons why the MC must do things this way. Though it can be boring it can also be entertaining to anyone who can relate to it.

The characters remind me of what an actual neighborhood would be like. No... more>> one is really stereotypical, seeming natural. Though it also makes no one seem interesting or memorable.

I like what I read. But will I read more? Probably not. <<less

Comfy and cute for the most part. Very much a slice of life novel that's slow moving.

I really liked how the MC is powerful, but only compared to normal people. He's still far below any of the heroes party. And his attitude is even better, he fits his role of being a guide to a T. The relationship he builds is great and is just fun to read.

Plot spoiler below. Basically worrying about a potential tonal shift that might happen.

... more>>

I'm rather worried about what's going to happen when he gets found by the hero party. He loves and misses his sister and she legit needs him since the hero trait has killed most of her feelings. Most of them didn't even want to kick him out and/or knew he was the glue that kept the party moving and want him back. But doing so will ruin his shop and probably screw up his budding relationship and kill most of what makes this series fun to read. Hopefully the author has this planned out and isn't just making things up as he goes.


On a random note I'm not sure why the synopsis even mentions "Together with the Half-Elf Carpenter living downtown", since he's just a friend that reappears several times and I wouldn't call him a main character by any means. <<less

This is really good. It's slice of life, but not pointless. Also, the MC was the utility character that allowed the party to function, but the sage cast him out because he wasn't on par with the rest of the party for combat (really because he wanted to monopolize his sister, the hero.) So the MC goes and has a happy, relaxing life while everyone else is hosed XD

This is Slice of Life done right.
