This story has been interesting so far. MC's goals are realistic and it will be interesting to see where it takes him. Magic system is unique in that you can 'trademark' spells which I found interesting so people using them later can't change them. I also thought transferring magic to others was unique in that they are stuck doing it your way forever. It limits magic that others can use so it will be interesting to see how that turns out.

The translation is good and congratulations to the translator. Keep... more>> up the hard work.

Now, a few things I don't like. I think the author's usage of terms are at times repetitive. Also I am hoping the MC has more interactions with people before long. I mean I know next to nothing about his family other than his mom is mostly hands off. His dad went off to war and for all I know never came back and he seems to have siblings that we know little about. Perhaps he just doesn't care about his family because of his reincarnated status.

Whatever the reason I like the unique magic system and dislike the lack of human interaction.

Edit: His dad appears and saves his butt. Nice to see he is still around. Hopefully we will see more of him. I like the peddler so perhaps we are about to see more interactions. <<less

First, nice job by the translator as he's doing his best and releasing several chaps in a day, without any help.

Unfortunately the novel doesn't help. The chapters are mega short and there are too many repeated lines. The MC says the same things over and over again. It wouldn't be so bad with long chapters, but it becomes even more agravating with short ones. Barely any interactions with other characters and most of it is tell don't show.

There are other problems, and other qualities too. BUT what stands out is this :

A LOT, of obvious plot holes. I MEAN, SO OBVIOUS it's just awful. I kept waiting for them to be corrected or for new information to come along and correct it, but no. For me was like a 10 yo wrote this with no regard for things he wrote before, just making up as he goes. Look, plot holes are common, I honestly don't mind them too much. I think particularly in WN they are... more>> a given, especially since these novels are usually too long to keep track of everything, and not really a professional book, so my expectations usually are low enough regarding them, but this one was surprising in a bad way.

There's no way you can read a story where a character (one of the very few) goes to war, and the next day he appears in the house and no explanation is given to the reader. If the series of events changes without explanation, then how can the reader understand or keep up with the plot? And it is only chapter 31 guys. The author realized his mistakes in one instance, but instead of writing something correcting like using a sentence that made us see something now, that happened in the past, he inserts a solution in the storyline AFTER the problem.

The explanation in the "spoiler" part will make this more understandable, and Honestly, if you are used to good novels or at least one where the author cares about cohesion, I recommend reading the spoilers, nothing too revealing and can spare you from reading this.

The author doesn't even know how to correct something so simple, he can create literally any excuse, but he creates one that doesn't solve the problem. " Here, about that meteor, take this orange juice."

Spoiler
  • The creatures plot holes: He can't sell them, because he experimented on one of them and now all of them have magic, he knows this isn't common so he can't sell them, he realized it in chapter 24, in chapter 27 he sells them (????).
    NO, there wasn't any explanation or solution before, the author just forgot about the problem that he himself introduced in the novel (??) AND in just 3 chapters, 3 NOT 300 !
  • In chapter 7- " Why does my father, who is a farmer and has a field, leave the house? It was because he was sent to war." The father was practically never mentioned again until chapter 16 when this happened: "I sit on a suitable bench with my parents and wait. There were a few others around, as well. " NO, he never said his father came back, or that his father would come back shortly, apparently, war is just like a normal job, you go, fight, kill, and return home in the next day.
    I think the author introduces the war in the country by saying the father went to fight on it, but then, forgot that this was how he introduced it. To be honest, I had already forgotten about the father, after all, he was just MENTIONED in two or three instances. I just realized this, because in chapter 28 the father resurfaces again to take him to negotiation and I was like: wait wasn't he fighting in the war ?? Then I went back, and he was already home for his baptism ??
  • In chapter 29 -"I'm angry! They hurt my cute children!"
    Some people cut the horn of the creatures that he raised, he cried and was so angry

    In chapter 30- "I can't stop laughing at my good fortune. Let's make a profit by selling Familiars in large quantities from now on." In chapter 31 - "I have to do something that isn't very pleasant from now on. It was the task of cutting the horns off of the Familiars."

  • Later he discovers that the creatures without horns cannot use magic, thus "solving" the problem, BUT NOT THE PLOT HOLE! See, If the author just said something like " He already knew before he sold them, that's why he sold " Even if it was obvious that the author forgot and just corrected it later, it would be fine, but he "corrected" it in this way that didn't explain the characters actions taking any cohesion of the plot and character at the same time. I know, this isn't a big deal, one time, but in 31 chapters, he did this a lot, I just mentioned the ones that pissed me off the most.. And the fact that he cannot correct the situation even when it is so simple that even I can think of a way out, means that there is no more hope for this novel.
    [collapse]
And animal cruelty, what a nice way to make a character likable huh, I wonder, how didn't anyone thought of that before? OH, they did,

but usually for psychopaths... <<less
