I’m Really Not The Demon God’s Lackey

Description

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

Lin Jie, a transmigrator, is the owner of a bookstore in another world.

He’s kind and warm-hearted, often recommending healing books to customers who are going through a tough time. From time to time, he secretly promotes his own work too.

Over time, these customers begin to respect him greatly, some even frequently bringing local specialties to repay his favor. They often seek his professional opinion when it comes to selecting books, and share their experiences with this ordinary bookstore owner to people around them.

They respectfully and intimately refer to him using names such as the “Demon God’s Lackey”, “Propagator of the Flesh and Blood Gospel”, “ ‘Corpse Devouring Sect’s Rites and Customs’ Author” and “Shepherd of the Stars”.

I've decided to write a review to dissuade readers from the negative reviews. This novel starts as a "misunderstanding" based novel similar to popular ones like "To Be A Power in the Shadows". But it goes so much further than that. That's because this world feels alive.

The world building is spectacular, and each of the warring/friendly factions is interesting to observe. This is the clear thing that drew me into this novel. It's clear that this author isn't just focused on cheap gratification and has actually spent time to build... more>> out a world and setting, along with the characters that inhibit it.

On that note, let's talk about the characters, as each of them is individualistic and worth remembering. Key characters play amazing roles and have their own ambitions, as their lives get intertwined with MC's.

And the best part is that this story blends the parts without the MC, along with the mystery and intrigue of the MC himself, to present an enjoyable read to readers.

Overall, the best CN novel I've read haha. <<less

At this point of the novel, I’d consider it to be on the best ones I’ve ever read.

It’s a shame that the Manhua is REALLY disappointing and does not have a good representation of the novel.

Love it!

So the book is about a bookstore keeper from modern world who made a wish to have every book in the world. The wish was granted and now he is a bookstore keeper in a modern/fantasy world.

He couldn't be happier as he gets to have any book he wants, while still able to do his favorite job, selling books and giving spiritual advise to people.

... more>> Unbeknownst to him though, the world is quite grim/dark fantasy one, and the shop itself isn't what he think it is.

This is where the comedy tag comes from, as the MC and other character perspectives are completely opposite.

For MC he thinks the person is having normal everyday problems, like a lover cheating, person just being lonely, or having problems with work. So he offers solid advice pertaining to it.

But the other side is everything but normal, everyday life filled with blood and death, so the real problem is completely different to what the MC thinks it is. Yet the advice somehow makes sense to them, though through a twisted way.

MC of course has no idea of it, and then also recommends them a book, be it just a story, fairytale or a classic philosophical book.

But what the person gets is book filled with taboo, demonic powers and ancient knowledge, helping them solve the problems they are facing.

They are of course thankful to the MC, and view him as a devil/god like entity, surrounded by mystery, while MC himself is just a normal human, and while surprised by the overly enthusiastic reactions of his customers, takes it as normal, having no idea what really is going on.

The misunderstandings are hilarious, the world is filled with mystery and is slowly unraveled when MC meets with more and more people. Every person is alive and has distinct personality, the problems they face feel real and it just makes the world feel alive.

Definitely recommend giving this a try. Sadly couldn't find any raws after chapter 55, else I'd have kept reading. <<less

As mentioned by @ResNovae, it's the latest CN novel to jump on the bandwagon of OP shop owner novels, with more emphasis on the "misunderstanding" trope. Think "To Be a Power in the Shadows" (2018), but the novel revolves around a shop and tries to make exposition entertaining.
Still, it's a decent binge read if you have nothing better to do.

SUMMARY
An ordinary learned, hikikomori, modern young man Lin Jie randomly transmigrates into an odd-ball world of 80s-90s tech + witchery (you can totally see a copy of Lord of... more>> the Mysteries...). He's awarded a magical bookstore with unlimited books from his past world (likely from some demonic power and hence the novel title). These books somehow have different meaning to the world's residents, in most cases awarding them powers and epiphanies. MC passively bumbles through life with misunderstanding after misunderstanding, and is recognized by the world's powers as a powerful individual.

COMMENTS

(1) Nonsensical MC + Somewhat weak world building
Author woke up one morning and decided he REALLY wanted to write about a misunderstanding trope MC, but didn't have a clue about how to go about it.
The misunderstanding trope with MC gaining powers/recognition isn't new. It was successfully done in other novels, especially "To Be a Power in the Shadows" (TBPS). But TBPS had an ultra-chuunibyou MC Cid that proactively made it all work, as he has real personal strength while unknowingly stumbling upon a huge conspiracy that hardly anybody knew about. That aspect made Cid endearing to readers.

In this novel, you have an older rational MC Lin Jie with no powers (until recently). Despite having lived for 3 YEARS in the new world, having done research into all local factional powers and government regulations, and knowing that his shop is magical, the MC somehow still has NO CLUE TO WTF IS GOING ON.
The scale of wars between factions is so large with entire neighborhoods/towns/cities being destroyed. Yet we're supposed to believe the entire world can be hoodwinked MIB style with "Memory" sigils (i.e. MIB Neuralyzer) and forget what happened.

This world setting absolutely does NOT match up. It's impossible to suspend any disbelief.

So you're left with the impression of an MC who is either willfully ignorant (he's such a loser hikikomori that he's clueless), or a complete dumbass. Neither of these are good impressions.

(2) Boring, repetitive plot, with literal EXPOSITION
As of Chapter 60, it still consists of powerful people or civilians randomly interacting with MC as they enter his shop. I think I've counted 12-24 characters, depending on whether you count whole groups. So that's about 5 chapters per group, which is super short.
Spoiler

- the druid who setup his shop license
- the Silver Wolf woman + her minion (killed)
- the black magician Wilde
- Wilde's disciple + his minion (both killed)
- the elf
- the primordial witch (via a dream... in his shop)
- an entire party of bad faction black magicians (11+ ppl all killed?)
- the knight
- the knight's daughter
- some other faction investigator
- the knight's faction's investigator
- neighbor who runs tv shop or something

[collapse]

Would've been interesting if MC got out and did something, but MC never leaves his shop. It's just a microcosm of people interacting with MC in his shop. That's it.
No humor, nothing whatsoever. Just chapter, after chapter, after chapter, after chapter, after chapter, of people walking into his shop, and then being blown away by how "amazing" MC is.

Author is clearly trying to introduce a world of mystery with this narrative style, but you're afforded such a tiny glimpse of what's going on that it becomes a huge chore to read. You are literally reading exposition, where it's a bunch of people sitting around talking to/over each other and thinking different things.
Ugh.

(3) Epic filler, just like Lord of the Mysteries
You can tell author just really wanted to copy Lord of the Mysteries, right down to the filler.
Here's a sample from C60.

Spoiler

Since this customer was being trampled on in the company to the point he considered himself a disposable tool, it meant that the psychological damage he suffered was severe. Therefore, taking on a different path and getting out was a better choice.

However, a career switch for a middle-aged person was something rather difficult and couldn't just be achieved with purely determination but money and means as well.

Most importantly, this customer needed to have no worries for the future.

However, from how quickly he had made his decision and said he knew that it was "very risky", that meant that the customer probably had some confidence.

To ensure that this new customer didn't leave as quickly as he came, Lin Jie felt that it was best to have some insurance.

Fortunately, young Miss Ji should be able to help a bit. At the very least, it could ensure that this customer before Lin Jie wouldn't be unemployed.

Ji Zhixiu's father controlled Rolle Resource Development, an enormous corporation that basically monopolized all resources and minerals in the lower city district, as well as being involved in nearly all aspects of Norzin.

The corporation's influence in Norzin was unbelievable.

This was a corporation that was omnipresent in every industry. Whether it was clothing, food, housing, transport, or any other trade, there would be the influence of this corporation as long as one was willing to do a little digging. At the very least, there hadn't been anything like this back on Earth.

Even though Lin Jie was an outsider who had only been in this world for three years, he had deeply experienced the influence of Rolle Resource Development.

Lin Jie would see the Rolle Resource Development's logo of a flight of descending stairs on at least half the stores whenever he went out to get food or groceries.

Even the CD and CD players sold in the audio store next door were manufactured by a company under the Rolle flag.

Perhaps, even the contents of these CDs were produced by artists in entertainment companies that Rolle Resource Development held a controlling stake in.

Lin Jie had once looked up Rolle Resource Development's history out of curiosity and discovered that the company had been established a very long time ago and that it had actually been an army that administered the Lower District prior to its establishment.

Some of its history was complicated and many records were already unreliable at this time. The head of Rolle Resource Development had already gone through many generations of change and even those in their internal department might not have a full understanding.

All in all, how Rolle Resource Development became a monopoly was basically due to the structure of the entire Norzin.

Norzin's Upper District was an artificial city constructed out of metal and was completely separated from the ground.

When viewing from above, the Upper District was just like a humongous sphere.

Norzin's land area was about the size of a province in Ancient China. Streets close to the Central District had their own names while the remaining roads and streets would be labeled with alphabets or numbers.

The 23rd Avenue where Lin Jie's bookstore was located was a numbered street that was still considered close to the Central District.

Then, there was the Lower District which referred to "below ground" and "ground transition zone".

From such a structure, it was obvious that the Upper District was basically artificial constructs where no natural resources existed.

The actual natural resources were entirely situated in the Lower District.

The Lower District was also where some inhabitants came into contact with the boundary of Azir—The Wall of Fog, and suffered from a strange plaque and affected their descendants.

For thousands of years, isolation was enforced for these people, resulting in an entirely different ecology in the Lower District and above ground.

Incidentally, the Church of Pestilence originated from the Lower District and was still the principal faith there.

This led to a complete separation between the Lower District and the upper ones.

Thus, certain specialized organizations emerged within the districts to help the Upper District mine for resources.

Over time, competition and annexation occurred between these organizations which finally resulted in the formation of a huge corporation, Rolle Resource Development.

Now, only this company held the sole right to act independently and operate in the Lower District.

Other resource companies needed to obtain approval from the Central District before being able to head to the Lower District to extract resources.

Of course, inhabitants of the Upper District could also apply to visit the Lower District, just that it requires many levels of approval as well as valid grounds for doing so.

Most of the time, those that went down were reporters or scholars and they needed to sign extremely complicated agreements before they started.

In any case, Rolle Resource Development was such a massive corporation and since Ji Zhixiu was the only daughter of the boss of this corporation and a lady of the upper class, it should be truly effortless for her to arrange a job.

"She should probably be able to help you out."

Congratulations on scrolling 860 words, just to know that MC was just THINKING about hooking up a bookstore customer with a female customer for a job.
There's repetitive info from earlier about the female customer's family owning a rich corporation. The only new info is 1 line describing Upper District being made out of metal and looking like a sphere. That's it.

I'm really liking this thus far. The combination of dark fantasy, comedy and chicken soup for the soul strikes a chord with me. As long as the quality keeps up for the remaining ~200 untranslated chapters, this might be one of my favorites.

I was thinking of MTL-ing it, but the translator's been doing a very good job so far. I always find characters kinda flat and boring after machine translation, and this translator's great at adding personality. I was thinking of becoming their patreon, but $50 for 11 advance chapters... more>> is a bit much for my poor self. <<less

It's the kind of misunderstanding comedy I totally thrive on, haha

Basically, the MC was isekai'd from modern China into Azir, what seems to be a Western fantasy-based magitech world with horror elements and a tech level similar to our own. Various magic organizations compete in the area, which is a city called Norzin.

MC tries to be helpful to customers by doling out chicken soup for the soul and loaning away comforting books; this is also the manner in which he attempts to make customers become more loyal. One thing that... more>> I really like about this novel is that each customer has a goal and backstory; they come with a variety of personalities and viewpoints, which MC uses to try to understand their troubles (he ends up somehow both right and wrong).

He is currently unaware that he is actually handing them tomes of forbidden lore and magic, since they appear like normal books to him. Although he is aware that there are supernatural elements in his new world, he thinks he hasn't encountered anything major yet (which is obviously untrue). While he loans away his books, he unknowingly shifts the power balance in Norzin as factions gain power from him.

The "Demon God" referenced in the title doesn't show up very often, although it's implied he was the one that isekai'd the MC and that he's the real owner of the bookstore the MC lives in.

Very very similar to I Really Am Not The Lord of Demon, but they still have their differences, ie. The store being anchored in another world much like Black Tech Internet Cafe and Gourmet of Another World, rather than being a dimensional hub. This novel seems to be the original, since its raw was published before I Really Am Not The Lord of Demon's.

IMO, it's also better. IRANTLD is more focused on the MC-praising aspect and the MC comes off as a bit of a Mary Sue. In IRNTDGL, the MC has a comparatively more passive role, and the story focuses more on side characters and their misunderstandings, rather than the MC's overpowered-ness. It's also more detailed, although bit dry in terms of wording. Makes for a really enjoyable light read. <<less

One of the best novel based on "misunderstanding" around the MC (for me). It's not that people misunderstand him, but he himself didn't know the power he possessed from birth.

Spoiler

Most of the case it was Xiaohei that was doing shady things behind his back and his lackeys brain circuits were too complicated for him LOL.

+ 5 stars for MC's backstory and the world-building. It's really unexpected but excellent.

The story is a magnificent myth. At the beginning, readers may feel bored looking at the endless misunderstanding between Lin Jie and his surrounding. But these are the mysteries, the foundation of the story.

Why the supposedly harmless books from Lin Jie's bookstore become ridiculously overpowered instruments in the hand of others without his knowledge? Why they see different titles on the same book? Why Lin Jie's books could always answer his visitor's needs? Why Lin Jie could always avoid others' malicious tricks by doing next to nothing? Why all the... more>> fortunate coincidences always happen around Lin Jie? Who is Lin Jie, and who transported him to another world?

The answers are in the last dozens of chapters which perfectly rounded everything into one of the most satisfying ending I've seen. I could give you the spoiler, but it would definitely ruin your reading experiences. This is one of those mystery-themed stories that would be best read chapter-by-chapter. You should enjoy the comedic build-up ahead of the macabre ending of the mystery.

This book is recommended for people who are in love with mystery slice-of-life and antihero protagonists in magical fantasy setting, plus able to tolerate some gore and tragedy. Extremely not recommended for people who seek romances, fast pace stories, ideal protagonist, or perfect happy ending. <<less

This is a refreshing novel because even though the general storyline is not new it has an interesting angle from which it is written. With a lot of Chinese fantasy novels the authors use a writing style that is good for earning money but not so good if you look at the writing quality (adding words to increase the word count and not to add to the story, dumb idiotic opponents just to add another fight that could add 5 to 10 chapters to a story without it adding to... more>> the storyline, etc). And it's not that this novel does not have those kind of elements but those elements are integrated in a smart way that fits the interesting angle and adds something to the storyline. In other words you can find those elements if you look for it but they are not as annoying as with some novels. So for me that is already a good enough reason to give it a 5 star rating.

There are several elements that I'm particularly impressed with. I've read many transmigration stories, I've read stories about transmigrated mc's having to run a shop before and I've read stories about mc's not knowing how strong they are before but none of them have an MC that is in the situation that this MC finds himself in.

Spoiler

What makes this story different is that the MC does not know why he is running the book shop and there isn't a system to guide him to reach a goal. There is an entity that gives him slight guidance and that is why he got himself a shop and the entity provides the books to sell/loan. What is different is that the entity barely communicates and is probably also the one who put a spell on the MC so that the MC sees different things from his customers and therefore experiences the world very different compared to everyone else. The MC and his customers always have conversations where the MC is talking about very different things than the customer thinks he is talking about. And the titles and content of the books in his shop are different for the MC than it is for his customers. The MC doesn't realize it nor do the customers and this adds a bit of mystery to the story. And because the author does not let the entity have an active role and hides the reasons why the MC is a bookstore owner the mystery increases, so much so that some of the mistakes you often see in Chinese fantasy novels (e.g. The ones I mentioned earlier) are barely noticeable. As a reader you can still extrapolate that the goal is probably to improve that worlds magic level and make everyone stronger. This goal makes you think of novels like the strongest shop owner and internet cafe in a cultivation world.

Enjoyable if not taken to seriously.

The MC's personality is pretty funny. It is humorous how he is always giving his customers advice based on his assumptions of their personal problems (which always ends up being helpful in resolving their actual problems). This misunderstanding may have trouble holding up long term, but at least so far it has been entertaining.

The world setting is a bit interesting. There are some hints of intrigue/mystery, even if it's pretty clear this isn't a super deep story. His customers often end up being interconnected which... more>> adds to the story.

It's not overly harem. There are a lot of young, good looking female characters who are impressed with or interested in the MC. But at least the MC doesn't drool over them, and there are male characters with personality.

A lot of other reviewers have mentioned the other novel with nearly the same plot and title, "I Really Am Not The Lord of Demon." I have been reading both, and I think between the two, this one is better.

It's a fun read as long as you don't keep your expectations too high. <<less

Although I don't know which is the original... I personally like I Really Am Not the Lord of Demon better. The story is much better. The only possitives of this book is that there isn't nationalism, and that it has less filler of side character story (so far). I really tried to give this a try... 63 chapters... but I gave up. I was honestly not that interested since I read the other book first. The two books' premises are literally identical, a unkowingly op bookstore owner that has a... more>> totally different view from what their customers see, and thinks themselves as mostly normal, and thinks there is no magic. Although this book was also interesting, comparisons hurt... I also disliked the writing style of this book, as it felt written by a new author, with the somewhat... rigid? writing style. This made me less interested in the story due to the way the story elements were written/told. I have trouble remembering and identifying the characters in this novel other than the MC and 3 other side chars. The antagonists? They were a blur to me. The organizations / groups also had me confused other than the Truth Union and the other good one that was paired with it. The other ones... had me confused for the most part.

Now I read a lot, making me pretty picky about stories due to the amount I read, so, frankly, u might like this story. As I in fact did enjoy it a little. It just wasn't a story that could make me stay. <<less

It is a well written novel, the novel might seem boring at the beginning where things just repetiting with MC finding new costumers and how they become increasingly powerful because of his books while MC keep oblivious about everything.

The main plot of this novel is about misunderstanding, it is funny and comical seeing how coincidences intertwined with MC's seemingly ordinary lifes turned to be extraordinary in the people's eyes.

There is little to no plot hole, the author know what kind of book and story he writed, how it progress from... more>> the beginning to the end. There is no abandoned characters or fillers, plot progressed just like a stage preparations and it is connected beautifully. <<less

This is the story of a clueless book keeper from earth with good speaking skills, he make a deal with an unknown entity to grand his wish and in exchange pass to a different world where his job is to spread the books and knowledge they contain.

... more>>
Spoiler

the trick is that while the MC think he is helping random normal people, such as: a bothered young lady in distress, a nice old man, retired military's men and more by giving them some guidance to help them relax and recommending a nice random book that seem suitable to help, like "the little prince". While in reality he speak with the top powerhouse such as a high level black magician, one of the seven knights who own the great demon sword and a young and promising hunter who belong to the 1 percent of rich people in the world and the books he give them are actually taboo books such as "Flesh and Blood Gospel" and "Corpse Devouring Sect’s Rites and Customs", all of which has the capability to influence the world situation and because he dare give away such books like they are normal books and let them borrow and buy them like in a normal bookshop the people get the wrong impression of him and think of him as a high level entity that take a leisure and neutral stand. Most of the story is based on the misunderstanding of both sides and how each conversation the MC is having is misinterpreted and result in each person having his own speculation and gains without even understanding that his world didn't manage to get to the other side. The series follow after the MC and the misunderstanding he create and how everything is being influence as a result.

A very refreshing and new take on the misunderstanding OP MC trope, ok worldbulding with great charater developement and interaction. The comedy here feels natrual and funny without being cringey. I wish some of the twist got more time to develop and explain some of the phenomena. Same thing with few part of the world just got skimmed by and just bring up for the sake of the ending. The last few chapter show that he can write these part better and deeper but anyway it's some missed opportunity to... more>> be even greater than it already is. Overall great read with some flaws. 4.2/5

Spoiler

It's really sad that the lower district got skimmed by heavily because with only a few final chapters it left a bigger impression to me than the upper district which is introduce in the birthday party arc. Red also is a very big missed opportunity, she can be explore and develop so much more. With the MC past, it's a great twist but got by a bit fast and therefore can feel lacking for a main twist of the story. Anyway I think this is a good read with good charater developement, interaction and plot but got suffered by lacking worldbuilding.

Its a pretty interesting story. The level of misunderstandings are funny too.

Its kinda similar to "Overlord" and a bit of "Eminence in the Shadow" where they believe the MC has a big world changing scheme or is a supreme higher being when in reality, he's just your average joe who literally just makes stuff up as he goes or just thinking normal stuff (usually unaware what people are assuming of him)

Spoiler

The most interesting thing in this story is that the title, even the context of the books he recommends are different for others.

Such as when he recommended the book "The little prince" to one of the characters, but for them the title of the book was "The Seed of the Abyss"
