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

Sawatari Takeru was suddenly teleported to a remote village in a different world. He immediately shouted with joy, “Hyahaa! Another World Teleportation! I’m the Hero!”, he then went to the nearest store, sold all his belongings and purchased an iron sword, then to the Adventurers’ Guild and took a Crazy Dog Subjugation Quest. He stormed out of the village and fought the dogs… and got pwned in return… easily. Just as he was about to die, a female Adventurer saved him. She introduced him to a safer job as a laborer for a farmer. The dream of being a Hero is over on day one.

After a week of work cleaning cow dung, he discovered that Japanese letters is considered sacred text in this world and used in official documents. Thus he applied for a job in the local government office and was made an assistant secretary. As he worked in the office, he tried to reproduce modern inventions in this world. He found that in the surrounding area there were the resources to create Gunpowder. Thus, with the help of his superior he began developing explosives for mines, then muskets and cannons. Eventually he started up a company with slave girls as employees selling soap and crepes.

At the same time, the kingdom was threatened by the rising activities of monsters and Takeru’s superior suggested to the capital to use their firearms to fight back, but the knights just laughed at them. To prove them wrong, Takeru raised a volunteer army from slaves and farmers to exterminate the threat.

I don't know how much more different the LN will be to the WN, but I've read ahead on the WN and also read the translation of the WN...

If it retreads the plot like the prologue is suggesting, you'll find that this is a "too convenient" and "fantasy world holding collective idiot ball" kind of story.

Basically it's history as told by a person that 1) doesn't know history, 2) thinks "Modern world F*ck Yeah, curb stomp those savages!", and 3) Has no critical thinking skills outside of wanking their favorite... more>> fandom.

The protagonist is just on this side of likable, but that's only because of his earnest effort.

More detailed review to come as it is updated. <<less
