Nice idea, but poor writting and annoying japanese cliches.

-There are barely any characters descriptions. I don't think I even know their hairs and eyes colors.

-There is barely any world building. Heck, the name of the country wasn't even introduced when they first visited the capital. I don't think the name of the capital was even given.

... more>> -The protagonist can't say no to his sister and remain firm in his decision. He always caves in.

-The sister decided her brother would be hers at 3yo... Hardcore brocon at 3yo!! 3yo don't know sh*t about that!!

-Protagonist has a god given level max concealment skill, but a princess know about his hidden skills? <<less

It's entertaining tr*sh. Like all novels from Japan it has a cool concept that doesn't ever get realised. They do every typical Jp novel trope, without committing to any of them.

The author clearly didn't know what he was doing once the MC went to Elf Land. World building shifted, s*upid conflicts, bad introductions of characters.

I enjoyed the tr*sh, until I didn't. 3/5 stop the second you get bored.

Okay, so the first chapter was pretty entertaining. However, this novel suffers from the same problem most Japanese web novels/light novels have: the main character is a f*cking doormat.

He has no agency, just doing whatever his sister tells him to do. And although this story has a 'character growth' tag, based on the review by the mad lad who actually read up to the latest chapter, I very much doubt he will ever grow a spine. Like most other novels on this site, read it if you're bored and have... more>> nothing else to do. <<less

I really wish that it had skipped the childhood parts. It's just... Does the author really think that a girl who's 3 years old would pester her twin brother to get married and say it's legal, and be able to do this with complete sentences? Does the author think it's normal for a 8 year old boy to be nervous about how beautiful his 8yo twin sister so that he has trouble sleeping despite having slept with her over the past 8 years?

The setting is weak, the characters are just... more>> awful, there's no plot, the gimmick of title collection is actually so common that I wonder why the goddess allowed it, so I can't think of a reason to recommend this novel to anyone. <<less

It had a very strong start for me. I had to agree with the goddess that a lot of isekais now are cliche, after the reincarnation, the first childhood chapters where a bit slow as most are, but this series did not spend like 20 chapters on what he did when he was one year old. Childhood is passed through relatively fast and it was quite interesting. It's good so far, looking forward to how it will turn out.

I like the concept, but the author not only forgets about it constantly, but also forgets that the MC is supposed to grow stronger faster because of them. Not only are people his age improving at the same speed as him, but he cannot even manage to beat them when he has so many boosts with the titles.

Fairly average isekai. MC dies in japan, reborn as a noble in a fantasy world with a cheat. Etc etc etc.

I wanted to enjoy this, but the sister character who's present from the very start is the type I hate the most. Clingy and jealous over every single interaction, don't read this if you don't enjoy that type.

Worth reading. Not my typical read, but despite the issues that it has (short chapters/very short on detail) I was enjoying the comedy of it. Just don't take it too seriously and it's rather enjoyable.

On 1 complaint (compounded) honestly. I enjoy the novel. Lack of dialogue, and lack of details. Sometimes the dialogue is so short or doesn’t describe enough. Also there seems to be so much space for missing details for example not to name another novel, but in novels where the coming of age ceremony it’ll cover several chapters a good amount of dialogue and information here and there. Characters. All in all it covers a lot of space. But if you throw together both at 8 and 12? Was it both... more>> are covered in a span of honestly 1 whole chapter. You meet the mother than she’s so forgettable that you’ll never remember her. Barely the father, brothers a little more so. His maid? Nope never again. Once again it is a decent novel for what it covers and I like the characters and developments so far also it’s unique. I feel like with all those little details filled in it would be 240 ch at this point. It’s just to short and to the point. I’ll keep reading! <<less

I really wish the author would of actually used the title concept... if the author did something like making it so you can get a title like <Fire Mastery> "Increases the effect of all fire attacks by 25%" - <Blade Mastery> "Increases the effect of all blade attacks by 25% - <Duel Mastery> "Increases combat prowless by 25% when fighting a singular opponent" and if the main character would chain the effect of all the titles making it so he was overpowered (Couldam made world building make titles have a... more>> cummalative effect where 100+25%=125+25%... so with enough boosters it ends up being extremely powerful. This is what I was honestly expecting or at least something similar but titles have basically zero purpose, its just him becoming overpowered using magic, titles themselves have almost no purpose other than as something to add to his status.

As a slight side note, this really bothered me so I just want to rant... A bit into the book it mentions siblings can marry if the hair color is different... does the author think incest is outlawed because of hair color or something??? I don't know much about the topic because why the hell would I go out of my way to research incest but I'm pretty sure its outlawed because of something with bad genes which causes offspring to have issues... So yeah, not honestly sure what the hair color thing was about, does that somehow make it different... I mean, i've fallen low enough that I don't care if its incest or not anymore since its a novel but this weird justification of "its not incest even though it is because the hair color is different" just confuses me... <<less

A run to nowhere, as chapters passes out becomes a boring mess. Characters without charisma and doubious motivations, a boring world and no long term objective. I would recommend this if weren't better novels in the world. And that's not the case

A generic high fantasy comedy isekai.

A high school boy reincarnated into a noble society. I really like the idea of someone, who is not from high society becomes a noble, but sadly the author didn't do a deep dive on this topic. This is all about a guy who got reincarnated to be op (?). The motivations between characters are not really established--or perhaps the author established it but there are no reinforcements. The characters does not feel like a noble to me or perhaps the things I've read before... more>> does not apply here.

Most of the time, the prose gets really telly--sometimes, we get a lot of info-dumps. I get really annoyed when the author doesn't describe what the character is feeling, or perhaps the setting. There are a lot of minor--an hour, a day, or an event--time skips in these and I don't understand why the author would do that--it gets really confusing between what's happening and a miss chance on characterization.

The characters feels like a cardboard cut to me. The main character tries to be funny--or tsukomi--and his responses are dialogues of what the author I believe heard before but not what the character would actually say. The heroines feels like they are just there to flock over the main character, and not do anything else but for wish fulfillment--which is not bad, but they don't really have any purpose.

The King, for me, does not feel like a king--and so like any other characters in this.


Most of the times, the world building feels like are for author's/reader's convenience. There are not that much world building because of its tellyness and a lot of time skips.


Chapter 1 really falls flat for me and I feel like combining chapter 1 and 2 is better to establish tone and some characterization as well as for the reader to decide whether to read it or not. The Goddess' responses feels like she's doing all those for the main character's convenience.

The main character is rather competent for someone like his age, and I don't mind that because I understand it's for comedic purposes.


Lastly, if you like fantasy, comedy, harem, and/or main character being op, try a couple of chapters and see if this is for you. If not, then, better to try and read other webnovel/lightnovel. <<less
