  • The translation is a MTL that straddles a fine line between average and borderline unreadable
  • The plot reads like it written by a 12-year old tripping on cough syrup
  • The MC is abnormally apathetic, and sometimes takes action in ways that defy any sort of logic, lack consistency, and make simple problems take way too many chapters to solve
Yet, for some reason, I've kept up with this novel, and even find myself enjoying it. I'm confident 98% of people that try to read this would get bored and/or angry. However, if you're... more>> in that 2% of people desperate for stuff to read, you really could do worse. Maybe I've spent so long staring into the abyss of awful isekai tr*sh that I've reached some sort of unholy enlightenment... or maybe I've just gone crazy. You decide.

I considered a 4 star rating, but I'd have to scrub myself down in the shower for hours afterwards from how dirty that would make me feel. However, I do think the author has gotten marginally better over time, and the release speed is definitely a plus.


Momiji and her onigiri obsession is 60% of what keeps me going tbh

Some reviews said something about weak willed MC because he let himself be controlled by others like small girls or nobles....

Well, they weren't wrong. But can't say they have the best insight.

MC is playing a game. The game has story mode. In any game with story mode, the game controls you. You do have some degree of freedom, but in the end, you're playing a game and the game controls your character. Got it? Oh and about the game character being a kid. Do you have the same complaints when... more>> you play pokemon? Or zelda? Or animal crossing?

And in his real life he doesn't let himself be controlled by anyone else. He make deals and even bought a whole company for him to live freely. You still think this man is a wimp?

People, if you want to review, let go of your f*cking biases. You dislike this genre, don't read. You dislike jp isekai, don't read. You can't even read up to 30 chapters, let it go. Don't bit*h about your inability to enjoy novels due to your personal tastes. We also don't need to taste your existential crisis due to your ugly rants regarding how MC should act. We don't care. This is a place to enjoy novels, not some haters subreddit.

Ok now my real review:

Average. Nothing new. Game world, isekai, cheats, your average jp MC but with a bit of spicy real life side, switch between isekai and real world. Verdict: an ok read to kill time. Nothing to praise, nothing to badmouth. If you enjoy those tags I mentioned above, give it a try. If you don't, just don't waste your time. <<less

The story started good. but like all other Japanese novels, it became ret*rded. The thirty something year old MC started acting like a five year child after the initial few chapters.

And like all other other Japanese MCs this one too lack a backbone.. Allowing from little kids to old men to take advantage of him. Each time I read the next chapter I wanted to beat the sh*t out of the MC...

The only reason I'm reading this is for the interesting story concept..

Safelink sucks. I rather liked this one, but have to throw it into the unreadable bin because I can no longer access the chapters with the removal of the direct link. I have tried the safelink link and it just leads to an endless loop between the false chapter and the table of contents.

On the story front, it is an interesting concept that is generally well written. By well written I mean that, as of chapter 19, his reactions to his situation are very realistic to how a real person... more>> would react. The MC feels like a real human rather than just a character in a story.

His rather passive reactions to some situations are typical of many Japanese MCs and are of course sometimes irritating from a reader's standpoint. We want to see him DOING something rather than sitting there in bewilderment. The thing is that if I put myself in his situation, lacking almost all information and thrown into a completely unfamiliar environment, I realize my own reactions would not be all that much different.

And it's still early in the story, he hasn't even really had a full 24 hours since things got real. There is a lot of hope for the future where he gains confidence, information, and power. I'm really looking forward to the future where he grows into what he could be. Or, I would be, if I wasn't dropping it for now because I can't actually access the chapters..... <<less

I'm dropping this because it is too frustrating to continue. The final straw for me was when:
... more>>

The main character treats a noble's son's illness, but the noble's daughter ends up claiming credit because she badgered MC to do it in the middle of the night (he had offered to do it already and was scheduled to do it the next day) because she was bored. The noble offers his daughter "if you have anything you want just say it." The MC is mistakenly thinking he is getting that offer until the daughter replies "He cured my brother and seems interesting. I want him to be mine." At which point the noble says that it's a good idea without asking for any input from MC.

Cut to the next chapter and MC is her damn servant even though he is a literal god in that world and has a dragon demi-god on speed dial that would do pretty much whatever he asked. He even mentions that unlike every other servant he isn't being given a salary, and there was no mention of an actual reward for healing the son either. He instead has to ask for things that he wants and they might buy it for him, but that is somehow better than having his own money that he could save up and keep with him when he leaves the job.


I can deal with a weak willed MC. I can deal with pushy side characters mistreating the MC. I can't deal with bad writing that puts these characters as allies and love interests. It would be somewhat redeemable if the main character was at least upset by his treatment even if he was too weak willed to speak up about it. Instead he has no problems living as a doormat and he and everyone else act as if this is normal. This wasn't the first time that MC was treated this way, and I highly doubt it is the last. Avoid this unless that appeals to you for some reason. <<less

All in All the book was quite a good read. The God concept was interesting and the Author explored concept well... In the beginning. After the original world building arc of the story, things started to go down hill, in my opinion.

First of all the MC's personality is incredibly jarring. He is your basic bit*h character that allows pretty much anyone and everyone to push him around. And his severe lack of confidence just makes me want to beat him up for some reason. I'm not sure if this kind... more>> of character is popular in Japan or in the east in general, but personally I don't feel that the genre translates that well to the "western" community. This is probably one of the main reasons I felt forced to drop the book.

Second of all is the side characters in the book, mainly the women. Why are they so annoying?!! You've just met the MC but you are already treating him like your s*ave!!! I just can't stand a Book that consistently treats the character, that the story's point of view is from, like dirt.

All of that said, I lost the will to read the book. I have no reason to torture myself so I won't. Hopefully if you are reading this, feeling the same way I do, you'll realise you don't have to torture yourself as well.

Well I've said my peace I'm out hopefully to find a different God protagonist concept book.

"Reborn as a GOD" on Webnovel is a good read if you are looking for a GOD protagonist book. <<less

- Witnessing the world's creation
- Interesting abilities and powers.
- Finding out differences from the rules of the "other" world and the "original" world, and the consequences of bringing items from one to the other is interesting.
- The switching between the real world and the other world feels like you're alternating between two stories at once.

- Female falls in love immediately upon rescue, which makes no sense. Not only is this cliche unrealistic, but the female was even strong enough to defend herself. The guy is... more>> like some plain middle aged man too. She has absolutely no reason to fall in love with him.
- Powers receive has absolutely no explanation as to why they were given to the protagonist, as of current chapter. This could change, or it could be completely "that's just how it is" and we'll never mention it ever again.
- Author sounds like they're making excuses about a character's actions to the reader.
- Protagonist gets dragged along by a selfish side character, to force the story along. In other words, the protagonist don't have their own will. The story might as well be about the side character, because he's just being pushed around.
- Protagonist just rambles on and on and on. His monologue is way too damn long, usually about the same thing. It's like when someone has a 500 word essay and they're trying to reach the word count by rambling on and saying the same thing 50 different ways.

- It started off well, but the pacing is starting to become stale due to how it drags on. <<less

Honestly this story was much better than I had expected. The translation isn’t always good and the punctuation is the same, but the fact that this is getting translated at all is awesome and I hope I get to read it all the way to completion! Thanks you authors and translators!

I want to make one in an attempt to sort of offset the shade being cast on this story. I will say yes, I agree that what many people are saying about the MC is sort of right. He is a far cry from an alpha male. As someone who in a sense stands at the peak of life, it is somewhat inexcusable. That said what I will say here is, somewhat contradictory. Still, I want people reading this as much as possible to try and understand where I'm coming... more>> from when I say this. "This story is not about the MC in the least bit." It is about the world, and how

it crosses over to interact with other worlds.

The MC can be thought of as more a gardener. One who gets caught up in situations concerning a garden he has been "Tasked" with looking out for. Even if he raised it from conception. No understatement to say that the MC is not very worthwhile. The truth is other characters are better, even the MC feels he pales in comparison. Especially to his most reliable "Son" who he at one point in mental monologue wonders if he would not have been a better choice than the MC. The MC is not a forever doormat, but rather a sort of parent who will step in when they see their child cannot handle things. Before that he is someone who tries to objectively fit into his world and find out how people are living in it. Find out that people are enjoying it. I feel that the compassion and kindness he shows in his position is not only a demerit but in some situations a strength. Like there is more than one occasion where the world spans guys who can be considered "Terrible" who think of the MC as their "Father". They expect that yeah they have done bad things in the world. That the MC could not possibly forgive them, but that is not the truth he sees the world as a place for his kids to grow. At the same time, he is not more than necessarily going out to stomp out any and all forms of conflict. That occurs among his "Children". He is more hands-off and "if they need me, I will help". I personally would not like a character where the MC is going down where ever possible and killing all sources of conflict that just makes him a Tyrant. The story recommended in earlier comments "Reborn as a God" the thing is exactly that the story of a tyrant. It is a large wish-fulfillment story. As opposed to here where the MC is a creator but not all-powerful that story has allowed the MC too much power and free reign.

That is what many were expecting when they start reading this. That is why they end up disappointed. This all said the work is not Great or excellent to the point where it is hard to put down. Still, it is not bad enough where people have to throw it down and gripe in vexation on how terrible it is. Honestly, there are much worst. In the MC defense try to look at him as a new father whose children grow faster than he seemingly can keep up with. Even in the current chapter's one of his "Children" has done something really big and the guy is stuck between admiration for his child's innovation and horror that it might be a cataclysmically terrible thing. What it could mean for the type of "Adult" his child will grow to be. I ask people to try to see, that the side characters are more the Main Characters here. They each have a story so compelling that they could become well-crafted novels of their own. Yet they are all intersecting on a guy who does not stand out much to people. It is reasonable to feel frustrated but it is still worth sticking it out. <<less

I really tried to give this novel more credit and read on until chapter 83 (I'm a very patient person when it comes to novels) but this was just exhausting to read. First of all, this story is mostly set in a first person perspective so, if that is something you heavily dislike, I'm giving a fair warning. Now, regarding the main character, I have the same sentiments as the other reviews on this novel. MC is frustratingly weak willed and lets the people around him drag him along. He's... more>> passive to how everyone else wants to treat him. Even in the later chapters, when he starts being more proactive, it's still a very generic story that I'd give a 3 at most.

I think what I hate the most, though, is how he doesn't seem to have a goal or anything like that. He's just doing things on a whim. Like when

he chose to buy a company for himself because he felt like it. It didn't really benefit him in any way, he just liked the power ig

. The author should give a better justification for the mc's actions. Otherwise, it just feels weird and distasteful.

Overall, I don't recommend this past the first few chapters. If the author had gone in a different direction, perhaps this would have a higher rating. The author could have paid more attention to the world building, for example. If he wrote more about the kingdoms and tried to show the contrast between their worlds (in views, economic/social hierarchy, governance, prejudice, societal beliefs, religion), I might have rated this a 4, maybe even 5, star. As it is now, though, I'd give it a 2 at most. <<less

The premise is great, and the game is something I would very much enjoy playing myself (even without the alter ego thing, purely as a simulator), but sadly the writing isn't quite as brilliant. The characters are flat and dialogues are extremely short.

The translation is mediocre as well, so it's possible that it is further hurting the novel, but from my point of view it simply doesn't hold up against the really good ones.

Another thing that's a little strange is that the fantasy setting isn't limited to the world the... more>> MC created, but there are people with supernatural abilities and their own fated fantastic battle coming up, which I'm predicting will be beaten by the MC due to his high levels gained in his own world. Compared to this, among the isekai novels that feature travelling back and forth, I much prefer arbitrage and overtechnology.

In short, most of the storylines follow interesting archetypes, but lack in execution.

The safelink thing is annoying, in particular because there's no real chapter navigation. I basically had to open all chapters in new tabs fron NU and then tab through all of them to click the link and then do the same thing another time, and on the first chapter that had a link like that, I needed several minutes until it stopped crashing the tab. This doesn't affect my rating of the novel, but I do hope that the series is eventually picked up by a better translator with a properly functioning website and direct links. <<less

The concept is Great.. And the story about making a word and become a creator is good..

but after MC get DRAGGED with SELFISH Reason it get annoying.

he want adventure, but get dragged, he want stop working but get sucked with some unrelated and annoying side story, after that its get more more moving from the concept of the sotry, and just basicly going back and forth to another world.. The f*ck is that

I really like it so far and its a shame that it’s only in the thirties

i only wish that there was more worldbuilding like in ‘low dimensional game’ or ‘world keeper’

Still, im interested to see how things go with the shimigami girl, dragon god, and world tree

however, stories like this can easily go south if the writer isn’t carful.

i personally like the story of "New God" kind of concept, its interesting premise, while also have something I dislike

1. I think the idea of his power become relevant in "Real" world and even mingling with the people in it is a bad idea, theres couple novel also use this kind of plot and it become the most uninteresting part of it

2. the MC follow the usual beta cuck japanese troop, usually I dont mind it, but man... this guy super iritating, not only he just let them pushed him... more>> around, but the unecesaary monologue is just too much

3. while the translation work great, the use of safelink is pain in the butt, you cant even click some of the redirect button (ch18) <<less
