Late at night in the middle of my part time job at a convenience store, I had an encounter with a robber and was mercilessly stabbed to death.

As I was about to lose my consciousness, I thought about how much I wanted to do this and that when I heard a voice……

『The wish to be summoned has been confirmed. Granting Unique Skill 《Jack of all Trades, Master of None》』

Rude words such as that were said. Jack of All Trades, Master of None? Don’t screw with me!

Such thoughts and wishes were for naught as my consciousness faded, when I came too I was standing on a green foggy hill.

I was looking forward to this because I have been craving a story that has a healthy, romantic relationship in it between the protagonist and his love, and the tags here gave me the impression that that's what i'd be reading...

I was wrong! This story's romance is terrible, among other things.

The main characters personality has turned out to be pathetically weak most of the time, to a revolting degree of even being a total pushover. The one time that he finally does do something outside of being a tool he... more>> takes it too far in the totally opposite direction, and ruins the romance aspect for me by doing so.

He then tries to innocently explain himself in a way that is completely unrealistic and unbelievable... if it was real there is almost no way that his excuse would have been well received or believed... yet in the story the girl accepts it readily and also almost immediately afterwards describes his personality as being "warm and bright"... yea.. not buying it. Even if one was to believe the excuse he gives, it would only provide the reader with more reasons to pity how utterly pathetic the MC actually is.

These things aside, even for daily reasoning and casual interactions with others the MC has no common sense and he often is so completely idiotic that I'm left stunned.. only to hope that as I read on he grows... but his weak personality only seems to get more and more prevalent. <<less

for this novel, personally I rate it 2 stars.

As for the reason: the story is in a good pace and the MC character unique abilities "Jack of All trades, Master of None".

As for the rest of this novel which is a problem: Is that the author goes by the "romance" genre, which perhaps kinda irritates some readers including myself. In one of many reason, that the heroine (elf) was chosen as the leading heroine on early chapters. Her background story were only as short mentioned when she was privately talking... more>> to MC. However, the thing is that when the author were constructing the novel, he/she decided for the story settings that only one heroine will be used and she will guard the MC from other females. It just not feel right on this story, since the reality that going to adventures and meeting with other candidates/potential partners were instantly rejected before knowing them is wrong.

Secondly, Solving any problematic or dangerous situation in very fast pace that seems the element of being OP in "Quickness" were affecting the story. In addition, the author were focusing on too much on Ice magic attack which makes the battle repetitive and plain. <<less

The full title is 'I Came to Another World as a Jack of All Trades and a Master of None to Journey while Relying on Quickness'

Do not expect harems, graphic s*x scenes or an angsty violent hero working through his issues. This is a pretty slow story about a guy who relies on 'quickness' both in terms of agility and wit to get through things as he travels from place to place with his partner. As of now, it seems more notable for avoiding annoying cliche than actually doing anything... more>> original itself, so I'm curious to see how it develops.

edit:

So, at chapter 35, I have a pretty good idea of what this novel is now. As another reviewer mentioned, it has a 'slice of life' pacing but is set in a pretty harsh, bloody fantasy world. The romance develops very slowly, as does the protagonist's skills. If you like the idea of a slowly developed 'monogamous' romance and lots of traveling, camping, hunting with a decent amount of realism, and relatively few characters, then you might enjoy this. Definitely not for everyone. Also, I'm the translator. <<less

The main problem I have with this series is actually right there in the premise: the concept that being "Jack of all Trades, Master of None" is a BAD thing. In the story even the freaking Adventurers Guild (who should know better) laughs so much when they find out about our Main Character's power that there are people actually rolling on the ground complaining that their sides hurt.

This. Is. Stupid.

If you stopped to think about it for more than five seconds you would see it's actually incredibly overpowered. A... more>> Jack of All Trades is ALL classes of RPG characters. What use is a specialized bow user if he doesn't have a bow? How about a fire mage during an underwater battle?

If you're a Jack of All Trades, you can create and lay traps (and also disable them), cast combat spells (using any element), heal people (using magic, or first aid, or via a potion - which you also made yourself), create and repair your own equipment, make magic items, and use ANY weapon. No matter what monster you face you will ALWAYS have some way to either kill it or escape it.

The main character is basically Batman now, and there's no way that's not cool.

[END RANT]

Outside of that the story so far is... okay. It's well-translated with good English (+1 star just for that) but is fairly generic fantasy right now. Our MC has already attracted a beautiful half-elf just because he was nice to her one time (which made my eyes roll). <<less

A little background on me as a reader before I start my review:

  • I'm picky as hell
  • hate overly-stupid characters who have nothing to show for
  • hate forced drama/misunderstandings,
  • "dere" characters are sh*t in my book
  • Hate dumb asf girls that are purely for ecchi moments
  • hate multiple love interests
On to the review part:

I genuinely like this story even though it sometimes touches on my List of Hates, but I appreciate the story and the protagonist making fun and poking jabs at isekai/protagonist stereotypes. Hell, I liked the story so much I caught up with... more>> it in 2 days. I was worried that the female characters would annoy me to death that I would die from anger, but none of it here really.

The romance is fantastic and natural. For once from a Japanese "shounen" webnovel the author actually understood what a woman actually is and not the f*cking "Nyaa~☆ Don't look you dummy!" Fetish under-age girl sh*t. (Im crying real tears of happiness y'all, can you see this?)

Another good point about this novel that there is consistent story-telling and the plot is moving well without filler chapters or the author describing a pebble on the side of the road for 2 pages or a pair of titties for the same amount. As a reader, you don't know what's going to happen next but you always have an idea that we will see a conclusion whether it's happy or not.

Cliches will happen, and I dread them with the same vigor as my PolSci-IA exam. Luckily this novel uses them minimally and at opportune times so that it doesn't feel cheesy or annoying, but instead funny and light.

I might sound like I'm singing praises to the author, but no. There's a lot that annoys me about this novel as well, the main part being how dense the protagonist can be sometimes, but it's not often and he's a very good boy so it doesn't bother me as badly.

People seem to complain about how beta he is, but my argument is that why the f*ck would I want to read a story about an overly-agressive sonovabitch. Yeah, I prefer an assertive and confident protagonist, but I also prefer this protagonist's humility, grace, and sweetness. So if it's beta then, whoops that my preference.

The characters-that-matter and many of the non-important ones are well fleshed out, quirky in a good way, and very charming. It may take some time to see it, but I think it's well worth it.

This review is aimed at a specific group of people (i.e. My fellow gals, I understand. I was on the fence about this too.) & dudes and nb folks out there who are just absolutely fed up with the current state of webnovels.

Over all, if you're on the fence about this story. Just read it. What I've read to far (103) it's worth the investment. <<less

Instead of truck-san, we have the second most popular reincarnation death, murder! This is a pretty normal isekai reincarnation novel, but the cheat, or uncheat, and the MC seem to be different from the norm. It's impossible to tell too much on c3, but the MC seems to be less squeamish than other isekai protagonists. Since he's a jack of all trades and a master of none, does that mean that he's a jack at being a psychologist? Anyways, we have a (possible) non-beta MC and an interesting cheat in... more>> a normal isekai fantasy.

TL;DR: Action and a possible non-beta MC. <<less

I love this series. Now to the good and bad points of it

Good points:

Tiger translations are doing a fantastic job at releasing regular translations of a high quality.

... more>> The protagonist, the love interest and the side characters, who often appear for very short episodes, all feel if not real than at the very least not cut out of a piece of cardboard.

The characters, MC included, are far from perfect, they make mistakes and regret them and learn and they have troubles they can't overcome easily.

There're moral questions. The MC doesn't go killing off the monsters without feeling like a heartless maniac, most of the time, but he doesn't whine about it all the time to get annoying. He just adjusts his believes and morals to go on with his life.

MC doesn't change the society. Don't you sometimes hate how in some novels a JP MC goes around while making JP food and everybody just loves it with no raised eyebrows despite cause Bansai Japan? Or how a female MC is an office-worker but suddenly she's also a damn genius pharmacist? Or how they revolutionise magic and stuff despite being all new to it and there being tons of people who dedicated the efforts of their entire lives with no result who probably knew a fair bit more about magic? Well, guess what, the new world has their own food! They don't starve and have an actual food-culture! The MC know sh*t about magic, skills and the system and he certainly doesn't act like a smartass plagiarizing Earth's tech. He just goes about with his adventure with his elven wife. Simple and good.

Slow moments are sweet, the romance is good, the action is interesting.

No harem. Just my view on these things but harems are kinky and gross. I wouldn't bat an eyelid if a girl screws her own little sister as long as they don't screw anyone on the side. But polygamy is just eww. At least for me.

Bad point:

The so-called 'food chapters' I personally have no problems with them, hence my high review. But I'm sure there will be someone who hates them. So, there're chapters when the MC just goes on and on about the taste of a dish he for a good part of the chapter.

It's slooow, which I also don't hate, but, again, some people want to see some blood and intestines.

They travel a lot so there aren't any characters who have been fleshed out as much as the ML and the FL. Again, I have nothing on it, as I mentioned before in the very short time we see the MC interact with the sides the begin to feel realistic and well-made. No cannon-fodder.

Aaand that pretty much concludes my review here. I say it's a good novel, but to some it's gonna be boring as hell. All depends on you but if you wanna try to give it a read I'd say do it! At worst you will lose a few minutes reading a good book that doesn't suit your taste. <<less

I have to say, in its genre this light novel is one of the best I have read. A hidden gem. It is a bit of a satire however it still retains a serious side which is exactly how I like my satires. The story is not fast paced but neither does it get boring. It does have a slice-of-life feel to it yet there is still a vague main goal. Translation is high quality as well. If you going to try it, I would recommend to at least read... more>> through the 2nd arc (2nd town/city) before making a judgement. <<less

8.5/10

I was surprised to find such a well written "slow and relaxed adventure" themed story here. Usually they're shallow, cliched and make no sense.

This one has a well fleshed out MC and his partner and they're the main focus of the story as they travel and meet interesting new people, monsters, and get better and better at kicking ass. All done in a mostly light hearted tone with a dash of witty comedy and dialogue. Plus, the ace translation makes it very enjoyable to read.

Romance-wise, ... more>>
Spoiler

he has one and only one partner, and in exchange for the cliched pattern of collecting harem members like pokemon, their relationship grows and builds gradually to a mature one, physically and emotionally. I found it very satisfying

Yes... another too good MC (according to his partner, the MC heart is too pure for this world). As long as I read the raw. There's no harem. The MC is not that OP, the unique skills is just like a tutorial for character move list in a game. And that means he can quickly adapt to any weapon and some magic.

But the story was not that great. The battle scene was not that good either.. the author admits that he still learning to create a good battle scene.

I really loved this story up until around chap 140. The world is well described and interesting. It doesn't devolve into soy sauce/harem territory, although baths are mentioned a lot and there is a lot about cooking.

The MC is very 'japanese mc' in character but seems to be adapting and learning. However once they reach the Empire's river town though it's like the author really cranked up the naivety/stupidity of the MC to an unbearable level. I tried to keep on reading but just couldn't get into the story anymore.

Slow start but it has quickly become by far one of my favorite JP translated novels. The story has the perfect amount of traveling from town to town, preparation for travels and interesting interactions between the main character and others in the world between combat to make the really well written battle scenes carry weight.
Spoiler

Just to run down why I like this story so much:

  • MC goes from weak to stronger and had to overcome some sort of obstacle to obtain whatever power/equipment he has. As of 154 he's about low-mid B rank adventurer, for comparison to other stories, and at this point he seems really powerful but there are stronger people out in the world that make it obvious why he's only B rank.
  • Stats exist but are barely mentioned and play less of a part in combat than MC's experience and planning
  • The main character and his party member/
    Spoiler

    lover

    [collapse]

    have backstories, flaws, strengths and quirks that make them endearing. Sometimes they re-encounter something from their past or encounter situations that leave them shaken, but they're supported by their friends and slowly come to terms with it. By JP novel standards they're amazingly well written.

  • No harem, just
    Spoiler

    one nice romantic relationship that develops naturally and isn't too cheesy. The two care for each other, will vocalize it and are even physically intimate but they don't act like anime girls that are always at exhausting, unrealistic levels of giddiness when together.

    [collapse]
  • The side characters feel like their own people for the most part, not just props for the MC
  • The goal as of 154 is a bit bland (reach a destination) but there's some nice world building as they travel that makes me personally not mind.
  • No mention of a Demon Lord that I can recall despite there being a summoned hero in the world, so it doesn't seem the ultimate goal for the author is the generic 'Kill Demon Lord, save the world'. Intelligent monsters, what drives them and what makes them unique seem to be a pretty big focus for the author and I hope to see that develop into a larger plot for the MCs to sort out.

Not perfect, but pretty close IMO. Give it a shot until MC has spent some time outside of the first town and if you don't like it then it's probably not for you.

This is a light hearted, slice of life novel. It is good, but to be honest, I hate "slice of life". I am the kind of person who seeks thrill and action, and I could not care less about romance, everyday life, etc. However, that's just me. If you are into this stuff, you will like this novel.

One of the best lightearted slice of life adventure novel. One of the great things about this novel is how it depicts the theme of "adventure". The protagonist and his parter journeys around the world and experiences new things while furthering their relationship with each other and other people. It is great too that the novel stays away from too much cliche. Overall its a nice read. Especially with the great romance between the male and female lead. It is worth it. Give it a shot

I read a lot of transmigration/reincarnation novel but this novel has most likeable and real MC in my opinion. He is not an idiot, egoist or cheat character I can think him as a real person. And heroine very likeable as well. I read 100 chap in two days. It is easy to read. Don't expect most amazing adventures and battles it is more a slice if life novel if you like this type of genre read it.

I am beyond satisfied with this novel and the translation quality.

The author pokes fun at the cliches of other novels/mangas/animes and both lead character are absolutely adorable. It's refreshing to see their banter and relationship improving.

But do pay attention to the slice-of-life tag, there isn't much of a grand story going on here so if you expect deep intricate plots and twists this might not be the novel for you, at least not so far.

I hope there is 4.5, coz this one is definitely worth more than what you think.

One thing that you have to take a note about this series is that you can't expect some shallow and cliche storyline. Indeed, there isn't any particular heavy conflict thus far, but this series allows you to enjoy the world our MC reincarnated in. As the title stated, this is an adventure novel. An actual adventure for true adventurers. Both the MC and his partner are not tied to one place, they keep moving and... more>> having a journey all around the world.

MC is certainly strong, but he is by no means OP. His partner, being an Elf who has accumulated her fair share of experience in life, is still stronger than him. Along with his journey, we also learn how MC develops both his strength and character. His skill, Jack of All Trades Master of None, allows him to "efficiently use" anything he desired. However, as Master of None is stated, he does not master them, only know how to use them. He has to work hard to actually master both swords and magic.

There is NO harem. MC only has one partner, and she's one jealousy lass. She, the partner, is not only his lover but also his mentor. She is the one who teaches our MC how to fight and how to live, and how to enjoy the nightlife too.

To date, I find no particular problem with it. Definitely a good read. <<less

This is your typical isekai story. A man who go to another world and got some unique skill. The story is focus on his journey. Traveling to another town, meet a lot of new people while doing some adventurer stuff. This story doesn't have a lot conflict. Just a MC that enjoying his new life with his partner and doing some rom-com skit that make you... more>> smile (and sometime envy)

The novel is quite good, but I don't really like how the MC is always afraid of killing even when it's absolutely necessary...

Also, this novel REALLY gives me anxiety, I mean, I always have the impression that something is gonna happen to the mc's girl, even though nothing bad happens, the smell of ntr and tragedy is around all the time, as if it was just waiting to assault us with it...

Well, this is different. If you expect an OP protagonist with fast paced action and a complete harem, then turn back and search somewhere else.

The protagonist, altought having some OP elements, is not overly broken. He does not gather a plethora of womens around him, like most isekai novels, and that's refreshing. Also, he's not dense as f*** like many protagonists. If you expect the usual tropes, they are not here. No harem, no titanium density protagonist, no OPness. Just a normal guy, a normal love and a relaxing pace... more>> in an isekai. <<less
