Honjou Kaede was invited by her friend, Shiromine Risa to play a VRMMO.

I don’t hate games, but painful things are a little……no, I hate it very, very much.

Eh!…the pain would be reduced if I placed stats on defense power?

Then, the only place where I can place it, is there right? Right?

Solidly fortify everything into defense, now here I come!

It was interesting at first but when her friend came around it got totally shitty in my opinion. The plot armor is strong, I mean just because she learns to dive and swim she then 'accidentally' finds a secret place that can grant special armor and skills. Then there's the part with the MC that doesn't make any sense. She levels up and puts all her status points into her defense and yet her hp is still the same. The MC is a dense loli, cute, OP and she has a fan club. She's pretty much a mary sue but then her friend came making the story about TWO mary sues.

Nah, not worth my time.

If you want a MMO story, don't read this. If you want cute girls doing cute things... eh, you might be able to read it.

The heaviest focus is on the game mechanics, but as a reader you'll find one mechanic more ridiculous than the next. Just from the start, you have to wonder what kind of game not only allows a player to put ALL her points into one stat with 0 points in all the rest, but also she gets free stat points on top of that stat so... more>> she can use her starting equipment. What follows is one ridiculous mechanic explanation after another, with very little rhyme or reason.

If you're hoping for Kaede and her friend to play together, as of chapter 20 they've mostly just stood around talking to each other about the ridiculous mechanics, then split up to do stuff. They're both tolerably cute, but the game mechanics and weird, obviously OP items just get in the way. <<less

This is about an airhead girl that play a vrmmorpg because her friend forced her. And because she don't like a pain, she became a full build defense. She just give all stat point just in VIT and other stat is ZERO!

Then how can she attack? (Well you know, no STR, no AGI, etc)

That is where we laugh out loud!

If you want a simple and funny story then you must read this! Each chapter is short but always make me laugh!

It's a slice of life comedy novel about VRMMORPG

People might find it boring, but that's because slice of life simply doesn't suits their tastes, so you should try to read this one if you think you can handle it.

One notable point is... it's a comedy; you'll see a lot of moments where Maple, the MC, bring ultimate headaches to the game developers.

Even if she's overpowered, it's all in the name of gags, so you shouldn't mind it too much.

Just enjoy it for the lulz.

The story really ran out of steam & isn't going anywhere.... It started out decently but made the main character too OP too quickly, killing any hopes of a decent story. Once the friend enters the picture, there isn't even a decent slice of life story since it tries too hard to be more "MMO-esque" but fails.

At some point I started wondering whether the author was including the chat-room commentary & skill/equipment descriptions just to pad out the word count.

This is less of a review and more of a response to those complaining about the author using the game developers to nerf her, that's what happens in mmos when an exploit that breaks game balance is found, it either gets removed from the game or nerfed, it makes it more believable that it's actually a game being played, instead of cheat hero gets cheat abilities no consequences

Ok, first off- this story is a cute story genre and not so much on VRMMO. The main premise of it is a loli going around bashing things into fluff heaven with her big ass shield, and it does just that. Also, she's good at eating things alive.... literally.

And the story's not meant to be put much thought into, it's cute for the sake of cute! now enjoy.

Why read? Just cause is nonsensical fun all around. It's specially funny seeing the Game developers giving up trying to balance MC, n' seeing her, although unreasonably op... Still being an easy going airhead who doesn't understand that's 'something' wrong she being top10 lvl 25 player when others tops are lvl60... just gonna say that... Even I envy a flying giant turtle fortress that rains despair... It rly seems funny...

Ow yeah, it took me a GREAT time to understand something simple: hp does not rises with lvl up or vit...... more>> Its just another atribute u should upgrade, that's why she has 1k vit n' 40hp. Plz, read guys... <<less

When I was reading this, what I felt was excitement. No matter how ridiculous the development of our MC, how she easily stumble new things just by walking, or how coincidence always happens, it's fun reading this.

It's a fluffy story of the game adventure of Maple and her friends. No too serious stuffs like PK-ing, player harassment, or personal fight. It's just about how the main character doing their own things while stumbling every hidden quest and getting unique rewards. So yeah, the setting is too much ridiculous. But... more>> you know, what matters in the end is...*insert the first sentence*

5/5 will recommend this for those who wants a relaxing reading. <<less

Start out interesting but this is one of the examples of the author making a novel about RPG game without actually having an experience or understanding of the thing he is writing, especially MMORPG, Single player RPG is one thing since it is often just power fantasy, your character is special so you could wreak havoc however you want

MMORPG, however, is different, everyone is a player and all player is equal (except for the pay to win rich bastard), balance is the utmost importance in an MMORPG, it doesn't matter... more>> how complex or varied the weapon or class or equipment or skill or whatever, once a player found a way to optimize a build, they will create the META build and share it with the community and anything that is not remotely close to efficiency with the META will be ignored, so on the surface a game might have hundreds of class or character or whatever but in the end only dozen or so will be used if it isn't balanced, to keep the game interesting of course the game should be designed with that in mind, this, however, ignore any consideration for realistic *game design* out of the window, I kinda wished this is just another isekai story, at least that way the author does not have to worry about other people and could focus on making the MC as OP as he wants

LMS is one of the biggest MMORPG novels out there, it is flawed but at least the author understand the basic of how MMO work, the MC sometimes seemed OP but when you look at other people there are plenty of strong player throughout the world and the game is balanced enough to make it somewhat believable

anyway if you like a cute, mindless and harmless story then this is not bad but if you are like me and get bothered too easily by the flawed premise then this isn't for you. <<less

It's... well, it's not something that I hated reading.

It has no real substance, there's no real conflict. The writer or translator uses a story telling feel that doesn't lend itself to any tension and there's no doubt that the main character will simply continue to get stronger after a rather standard overwhelmingly amazing start.

The innocent story of a girl who hates pain... Probably the cutest and funniest rationalization I've ever read/seen for someone choosing a full tank build, ahaha! Too early so say whether this should be 5 star so I'll mark it as 4 star right now.

I have no idea what people is complaining about

Most complain is mostly people who don't read the god damn tags and/or description

The description tells you it's a happy lucky go story

The tags tells you about MC is going to be OP and lucky

If you don't like it then just leave or close it no one care if you don't like the story

The MC is cute and have a good instinct

If I would really this story is better off in anime or manga where we can see it (Personal Opinion)

This 3 isn't because it's terrible. Honestly I straight up laughed out loud in places. It's more because in general the story is rather meh. There's barely any interaction with other players, or even people in general, so far 90% of it is solo or with her friend from school. Just feels like a missed opportunity honestly.

I will also confess I am a bit jaded with the mmo novel genre, so skill ups and new OP abilities bore the hell out of me, these type stories are at their best... more>> when the MC is doing interesting stuff with their existing abilities and thinking outside the box. Here it's a mixed bag. The MC is doing hilarious stuff with her abilities, but things move so fast that it feels like instead of mining the potential of existing abilities the author just tacks new ones on top as fast as he can.

But the beginning is freaking amazing, and various places are a blast to read. Mostly when it's Maple being Maple. But at the same time too many stretches just get boring. Honestly it kinda reminds me of Kuma Kuma Kuma Bear in humor, but not as fleshed out. Honestly this sounds like a pretty sh*t mmo to play, the mechanics just don't really work. <<less

The series starts out pretty well, with a MC who accidentally stumbles onto a broken build and becomes overpowered due to either being invulnerble or finding gear that stores and reflects damage.

Problem is the author tries to force the shield theme by introducing a 2nd MC saying she's a dodge shield which in the series is essentially someone who puts majority of her points into agility to dodge attacks. It completely ruins the whole premise of the story of being an OP MC with a heavy defense theme, on top... more>> of that the author goes out of his way to cripple the first MC by having the administrators of the game nerf her abilities. <<less

Not the best story out there, but absolutely amazing in it’s own right. Why? Because it’s a very comfortable story that warms your heart as you read. If this story can’t warm your heart then either it’s not the genre for you or you can’t let go of some very minor details to actually enjoy reading. Give it a try if you haven’t already, just be sitting or laying down somewhere where you can relax

I can see how this series can be a pretty hit or miss type, and it kind of has been both for me at some points. I got a bit annoyed at the beggining when I realized that there was no stopping and Maple and her friends would only get more and more overpowered in ways that make no sense if you have any sort of experience with MMOs and their balancement, and I first began reading it in a moment when I was searching for MMORPG settings that felt... more>> more realistic and that show the authors experiences and hopes for this genre of game. But after a while, I just threw that out of the window, and accepted for what it is, a more happy-go-lucky story where you just ignore any kind of common sense and wait to see in what new ways those characters are going to break the game's mechanics. It's not groundbreaking or revolutionary in any way, but I've read almost 200 chapters and it has been fun so far.

As of the translation, the machine translation chapters were a bit painful to read, it's not impossible to read, but it is a bit confusing and requires some effort to make sense out of it. Asian's Hobbyist's translations have been pretty consistent and I had no trouble reading them as far as I remember. <<less
