Honestly, really enjoyable at the beginning but got worse overall halfway.

A confident MC is always a pleasure to read, all these spineless ones tend to get annoying.

Started at a 5...

... more>>
Spoiler

I hoped this novel would’ve gone more like the Mushoku Tensei way, you know, that part when they get warped to that demon continent. But sadly it doesn’t, suddenly you’re put half a year into the future and randomly introduced to new characters. A damn real shame, I wanted to see what he would’ve gone through on the Evilas continent.

As chapters went on more and more lolis started to “show” there love to him. “Do you like breasts?”... Really... Think of time and place, come on...

[collapse]

Should you read this? I’d say give the first 100 chapters a shot, I liked that part a lot. <<less

Quite a good start, however it became obvious to later on that the story really had nowhere to go. It tricks the audience into thinking that Hiro is different from other lightnovel MCs, unfortunately he is not. Everything in this LN is similar to other LNs (all the LN tropes are in my other reviews getting tired of writing the same all the time), unfortunately no matter how many times you try to serve me sh*t in with different kind of dressing, it doesn't change the fact that it is... more>> still sh*t. He still shy, lacks personality and no matter how many quirks the author tries to push on him, it changes nothing. He is just another OP protagonist with an ability so broken that literally breaks the entire story. It gets worst when he agrees out of the blue to create a country because of someone else's dream, which contradicts his paper-fin "personality". This came out as the author way of adding a plot. However like I said before, it doesn't matter how evil organizations and cram different plots in the story, if it doesn't affect or has anything to do with the MC in a personal or essential level it doesn't matter.

Like I said before the MC is so overpowered that you know that he can undo most things. There is nothing at stake here. Plus the author did a weird time skip to justify a power up. If we know that the MC's abilities can increase by him grinding monsters by using his cheat abilities then what is the point of introducing foes around the same level has him? In 6 month he managed to enter the top of all the best fighters in the world. What is there to stop him from taking 3 months off and do some intense grinding alone and become lvl 300 or 400? Oh right, nothing! Since LVLs seem to not have a limit. If he was able to increase by almost 150 lvls by taking care of some little kids, you can only wonder how much stronger he can get alone. So because he doesn't do that he comes out as an idiot with a death-wish. Also why is the author trying to nerf his abilities in the later arcs for no reason. The story can't even serve has a good power fantasy anymore. Also for someone who has the ability to do almost everything he wants it seems pretty tamed, especially the fights, it is as if the author never heard or played games like dbz, bayonetta and dMC. True score is 2.5 but again not possible in this site. <<less

I liked how the how the main character's objective is food and books, also with how he doesn't have a major world changing goals despite those world changing events being tossed toward him. While his magic might seem omnipotent but it doesn't directly promotes him to the most powerful character. He will still have vulnerabilities. As for the character, you have a diverse range of characters each with some degree of background. But you don't ever fully delve in them much if I recall, except for one of the arcs... more>> where it was necessary to know.

Character interactions, nuff said. Lolis ! Lolis! And more Lolis! The execution of interactions between the character were quite well done, although not to the point of where it seems natural but still good enough. The romance factor starts to kick in sometime later in the story but that is where I stopped giving this story a 5 star.

Spoiler

I officially buried all and any hopes for the romance when he doesn't even budge when Eveam threw herself at him. But he goes like "what is wrong with her?". This is not your every day dense, this is your Ichika (Infinite Stratos) dense. So yes I give up, unless at any further point in the story he reveals to develop romantic interest. Let me just get this out "Hiiro, you dense mother (replaced with the 'F' word) !

While this novel is extremely popular, we once again have a transported person into a different world, except he doesn't become a hero for the humans and instead does whatever he wants to do.. With his OP magic..

I recommend this for anyone who likes OP main characters, and lolis.. Buttloads of lolis.

Interesting plot. Liked the whole "innocent bystander" bit. Word magic is good. Characters are interesting. Fights are awesome...

So why is it that there are like only 20-40 chapters that I really liked? Even when I was first reading this series there were a number of chapters in which I just skimmed or quickly read, trying to get back to the interesting parts. Now, whenever I go back to re-read it, I just skip to the chapters that I liked and don't bother with anything else.

I stopped reading this series because... more>> of the Tournament Arc. That is death to this series for me. Absolutely 0 interest to read it and it took about 30 chapters (still don't know if they finished or not). Would recommend to read this after you've read all the other best stories or when you're really bored. <<less

Well, really. This is a good work, above average, no doubt. There is no doubt that Hiiros snarky attitude and companions are great, no matter how serious something is, as soon as Hiiro arrives, everything becomes a gigantic comedy, even if the end boss himself arrives with evil wishes to conquer the world when Hiiro himself is greatly weakened after a huge battle.

Well, so, I totally recommend it, but that doesn't mean that it's not without some significant flaws, otherwise I would've given it 5 stars. So, first of all... more>> they're summoned to this world, an innocent bystander that becomes one of the most powerful beings in the world and the four heroes that are so ridiculously naive its borderline retardation. Seriously, those self-important cowards treating it all as a game pissed me off to no end. Well, that's not really much though, it was somewhat amusing sometimes to see their stupidity and laugh at their idiocy. But this author is freaking horrible at writing drama, his side plots/other POV stories are so ridiculously bad it's somewhat amazing. He doesn't manage to get you to feel any sort of immersion and the clichés on the drama side is so numerous I almost wanted to punch him in the face when those stories came up. Well, some might enjoy that too. But there are two things I hate more than anything, that totally pissed me off countless times. The first is the power system, the author totally screwed it up. He went for a half year jump and we missed an enormous amount of interesting encounters and nice traveling, and all of a sudden he tripled his level. Well, I can buy that, the MC with all of his cheats and titles can surely get to that level by power leveling. But some other characters have a waay higher level than they should have. They were supposed to be at around level 100 from earlier, after being alive for at least several hundred years, then all of a sudden they gain a lot of levels... Well, no matter. But the plot holes/inconsistencies are glaring. An character that wasn't introduced at all in the WN and shouldn't possibly have been met considering the time restrictions in the WN was introduced at around chapter 230 as if he had met her, that character only shows up in the LN and manga... Then there's something about a guy who got crazy, there was some epidemic or something and they explain how it happened, it was an impossible scenario, there's no way the important royal family would not save portions of the cure for themselves, the most important people in the country, and some other things was also extremely weird and implausible at that point. There's a lot of more minor and major things that didn't work with the scenario of this story or just at all from common sense, but I won't mention them here.

So, all in all, Hiiros perspective is often amusing and is something I really love, that's why it got a 4/5 in score. But you might want to entirely skip the extra stories that is not from Hiiro or his companions perspective. If you can ignore the crappy drama writing, the glaring plot holes and the obnoxious cliché characters at the "enemy side", it is surely a story worthy of 4/5, above average but not really a story that would keep you reading until you've finished all available chapters without stopping, but enough to make you keep reading.

Edit:

Yeah, I re-read this and the newly translated 100 or so chapters and thus I had to downgrade this novel to 3/5, because it really doesn't deserve anything above average anymore. It just gets worse and worse as the novel progresses, the MC loses his unique personality to some extent and becomes yet another cliché japanese protagonist that can't say no and is tied down to everyone around him, listening to all their orders even if he's being "reluctant" about it. Really stupid. There's also the cliché retarded villains, overly simple background scheming/plot and clichés everywhere. Was getting really sick of the authors habit of pretending that things which happened in the LN and manga also happened in the WN, even though it's impossible.

The only thing somewhat worth reading was hiiro's adventures, but as the story goes along, there's less and less of that and more crap about wars and background events/side stories. It was quite good at the start (first 100 or so chapters) when the MC was pretty much alone and not tied down by anyone and didn't get ordered around, but after the time skip, it instantly became much worse. The power system was also extremely bad in general. Sigh, this had the potential to be so much more, but the author made too many mistakes and just isn't skilled at the things he started focusing on later. Maybe I'll read the LN in two-three years when I'm somewhat fluent in japanese, but I will never read the WN again and never by these translators, because there were easily a dozen or more translators who worked on this novel, the website shifted every chapter and so did the translators along with the quality and way of translation. Maybe that contributed to why it became such a pain to read. <<less

This is a really fun and hard to put down novel, easily one of my favorites. The MC, although hard to relate to, is a really likable character. Even though he seems arrogant and cold he is honest and never hides his opinions. He treats everybody he meets in an equal and non-biased manner, doesn't matter if it's a slave, a soldier, beastman princess or the demon lord herself, which seems to be very rare in this world filled with prejudice and conflict among the three races and this, together... more>> with his strong powers, earns him friends and respect from all over.

He has a very "do whatever he likes" personality which is perfectly shown in the beginning where when he sees that he is not a hero he basically goes "well this has nothing to do with me" and leaves the "quest to save humanity" to instead decides to tour this new interesting world by himself. (Though the "himself" part didn't last long)

He has the power of a wordmaster which means that words he writes with his ability will give some sort of effect related to that word.
The action scenes are varied and cool. It's fun to see which words he uses as well as their effects.

Although I really like the series and there are very few bad parts with it, there is one one thing I find infuriating. It is the half year time skip at ch100. Im not against time skips in general but this one is horrible. Not only did we miss out on a lot of seemingly fun adventures (which is the best part of these kinds of novels), they even introduced a new character and changed the appearance of an old one. The backstory of the new character and the reason behind the change for the other one gets neglected for many chapters and then only gets mentioned in some casual conversation with the MC. More than 100 chapters has passed now and the story behind the new character and the reason for her in the novel is still very foggy.

Except that one infuriating thing I really love this novel and the characters in it. (Except the new one) <<less

Not sure as to what chapter I have read this to due to it being awhile ago and tossed around like a hot potato.

The biggest, most massive and all consuming flaw this novel has is..... Lack of dedicated translator!

It started out with alright translations, not bad but not great, then went better, worse, worse, better, worse, better, worse, GOOGLETRANSLATE+C+P=Fukurself, and yeah... (better/worse comments are not in any particular order nor directed at any translator/group) it was hectic. Now what I am about to say should be taken with a grain... more>> of salt.... Rebirth Online World translations that I have personally read... are generally sh*t. It reads like google translate filtered through broken English and edited by even more broken English. So I have no read a single chapter on their site as my previous experience makes me look at the translation group and go "Oh, Rebirth Online World, great, lets list this as dead." it was (maybe still is) that bad.

On to the novel.

I give the novel itself a 4.0.

I like the MC and his personality. I dislike some of the side characters

I like the random plotlessness. I dislike the world shaking events tossed at the MC like they are Beach Balls.

I like the MCs Overpowered with flaws aspect. I dislike the almost entire skipping of "Training Arcs" because the author could atleast insert some funny events or enlightenment moments so its not all revealed at crucial moments in fights.

This series just needs a dedicated translator to go through, compile all the other works, TLC what needs TLC, Scorched Earth what needs it and re-translate what needs it then continue until completion. Probably wont happen, probably wont bother reading anymore of this because of it. So sad. <<less

No character development, infested with standard anime trope OP, annoying, stupid and smart when the plot requires it, lolis. It's trash, and I tried really hard to hold out for a properly developed character to appear that wasn't another copy pasted Loli, then they multiplied exponentially. Author must be a pedo. Oh and the humor is awful.

This is the series that got me back into reading years ago after a friend asked me for help in deciding what to read, eventually after much q and A we picked something out while he recommended I read this and so begins my journey, now I will say this novel definitely isn't the best but it definitely isn't mediocre, it's got the normal cliche summons to another world setting but the Mc's power and how he interacted with the world around him interested me, especially with the short checkups... more>> every now and then on his companions and the comparisons between them, now I could in fact elaborate on and on, about the pros and cons of this novel but as many people are with coiling Dragon I'm just gonna be Biased and tell you just to read it, it definitely ain't no Er Gen Novel, nor any mediocre half baked Japanese go lucky novel, but its definitely a fun tale that really doesn't take any thinking to read, it's just an exciting novel about some guy who just kicks ass no more no less, and sometimes that's ok <<less

This story comes off as half-baked and outlandish. I keep wondering when something resembling a plot is goig to happen. The text is dialogue heavy and has scarce details from food to combat to even scenery. Like at some point, he floats across a border/bridge, but I've no idea how high up he flew, why no one saw him, and where he landed. It's like the writer is aiming for quantity of flashy acts over quality of writing.

The main character has the ability to pretty much cast any spell he... more>> wants and is liked by characters important to the story's world for "being realistic." By itself, this isn't a real issue, but the protagonist receives a lot of unjustified special treatment on top of this and acts like a total d*ck. The characters then either praises him for it or brushes it off despite how toxic he tends to get. He's apparently lazy as hell, but is the top of the class prior to being pulled into the fantasy world. He also regularly abuses his "ability" for petty things like getting first prize in a lottery drawing of FOOD, softening his saddle, and cleaning his ass because his mana pool is too high for the abnormally high cost of casting to matter. The story also heavily implies that he's going to somehow solve all the world's problems before he even does his first "good deed."

The other characters, including the other 4 people summoned, have no depth. Even the most important of "bad guys" talk like villains from 20th century Saturday morning cartoons (e.g. Skeletor, Shredder, Starscream, etc). The only other male "Otherworlder" acts like the usual derpy dense meathead harem protagonist and the three girls are basically different archetypes of cheerleaders. The second-most dialogue belongs to this chef-beastman-former slave whose missing ears. Sounds cool right? Well he gets called a pedo at every possible opportunity by the protagonist and he barely retorts back, eventually giving up like "oh so I've got a new nickname already?" This guy either gushes about food or the loli in the party. Which reminds me...

One of the things that irks me the most is that the story likes to derail to talk about food being oh-so-amazing without going into any real details, resembling something along the lines of "This is the best thing I've eaten, and the other thing that goes with it makes it even more awesome!!" at EVERY. SCENE. CHANGE. The protagonist will go out of his way to acquire food, if he's told it'll be tasty.

Tldr: The story is mostly crappy dialogue, the protagonist chasing after food, and people glorifying his toxic behavior. <<less

This story, in terms of other isekai novels I read, is mediocre at best. However, like when I first started out reading light novels in general, Konjiki no Moji Tsukai is relatively a good novel to start out with.

At this point in time, it has been a while since I first started reading this, but overall if you're looking for a story with great adventures, then this novel is for you. In terms of story events this novel is nicely paced out, giving the protagonist room to slowly explore new... more>> regions and grow stronger by the day. Some may say that the personality of the protagonist, Hiro Okumura, is rather stingy and cold, but having read other novels such as "The Main Protagonist Hides his Strength", "The Lazy Swordsmaster" and so on... I love Hiro's personality. His actions always remain within reason, and it's just simply awesome to see strong OP characters snap whenever someone ends up annoying the crap out of him/her. Lol.

Keep in mind however, this novel is (or later becomes) a full-blown harem, so in between the serious story moments there may be a number of chapters specifically dedicated to fan-service or harem bits. I don't mind a little bit of harem myself, but at this point over 200 chapters in for me, a random chapter for pure fan service ends up annoying me by a bit. But yeah, this has been a short insight / review on the classic starter novel of the isekai trope, Konjiki no Moji Tsukai. <<less

Gonna give it a 5 star. Why?

Let me list my reasons and if you like my reasons, you too MAY read this story.

  1. It is world summoned hero. Kind of. Like the story summary says, our MC is summoned and because he's not a CHOSEN one, he actually decides to go off on his own. Which to me was one of the main selling points of this story. What exactly does a NON hero do when summoned? Which apparently leads to some interesting adventures.
  2. There is harem. Loli's and like other said, more lolis. Heck. This guy and Satou of Death March could compare notes and both would be like "My brother, we got dun fuxxd over by author-sama. Let us drink and share horror stories." lol. Yet amongst the horror of loli's there is humor and tragedy and triumph.
  3. The MC is dense in regards to his harem. That's a given. HOWEVER... in regards to anything Not harem. He is VERY smart and perceptive. Unlike other MC in other isekai settings, he gives no fraks about what he says and is very blunt in his opinions. Very refreshing. None of that whiny why can't we get along for the greater good crud. It may seem cliche to be a douche, but the writer does a well enough job that you can go "Hmmm... what the MC says makes sense. Frak y'all. I'm with him. Get me a snack too and a book!"
  4. The world building is consistent. There are enough details to not leave you wanting more. And to me, not TOO much detail that I'm dazed with data overload.
  5. It does have mmorpg elements. But oddly enough that's only so the writer can still be lazy with giving us power differences and allowing a frame work to show case powers and abilities without the haziness of books without it. Which to me is a meh thing. I can deal with it. If you can't, then you may want to jump ship too.
  6. The side characters and supporting characters from support to villains are VERY fleshed out. We see enough POV changes that you know this isn't a simple good vs evil storyline. The issues of war and tragedy are dealt with enough that you feel for both sides of the conflicts that are occurring. Which is how a good novel should be. The side characters have enough details and distinction to me. Enough so that I can tell you who will say what in a given situation if I should encounter them in real life.
Overall I loved the story. If you're ok with my 6 pts, then you too may like this story. If not. Then like the MC says "I'm under no obligation to do anything about your problems."

Story gets disappointing as it drags on, same problem with most Japanese media : lack of tact when it comes to comedy.

It's like telling a fart joke at a funeral.

Hiro is not consistent, became a different character, lost all his charm and became generic.

I thought it was just me and my dislike for loli but others skipped parts too because of too much filler.

World Building is superb. Sadly other aspects fail to meet the same standards. A good read to help you write your own stories

Updates Rating: 3 stars, Translation: 3.5/5 (multiple translation teams, most chapters range from 4/5 to 3/5)

(My reviews may sound negative, but I often list reasons why I didn't give 5 stars.)

[[5 star = almost all readers may enjoy. 4 star = large majority of readers may enjoy. 3 star = 50/50 of readers may enjoy. 2 star = a niche audience may enjoy. 1 star = maybe portion of niche audience may enjoy.]]

[[5/5 = Infrequent minor errors. 4/5 = Frequent minor errors or infrequent major errors, no... more>> difficulty to read. 3/5 = Frequent major errors, some difficulty to read. 2/5 = Difficult to read. 1/5 = Unreadable.]]

MC is one of five high school students (17-18 year olds) who get summoned to another world to defend the human kingdom from the demon kingdom. However, MC was caught up in the summoning by accident. Instead of receiving the hero traits, he gets an unusual magic ability. He is also skeptical about the geopolitical issues, and immediately decides to leave and go exploring on his own.

Features: summoning to another world, RPG-like leveling and magic system, rude MC with OP ability and fast leveling but starts from level 1, demihumans, monsters/beasts, small group combat, traveling/exploring, temporary companions, probably large scale combat later on, national conflicts, loli and loli-shaped characters. So far does not include nation building or harem/romance.

The concept is interesting because MC does not want to be involved in some strangers' wars, and his cheat ability is somewhat different. The story does include the usual reincarnation/fantasy themes such as adventuring and magic combat. So I think most readers in the genre will feel familiar with the format, although with some added twists. But I do have a few major criticisms.

The MC's attitude can quickly get irritating. He is all about fair trade and not doing things for free, but on the rare occasion that he needs something from another character, he gets a little pissed that other people want something in return. He is also about being direct, getting to the point, and disposing of formalities. But his dialogue often is nothing like that. It's almost always insults and being rude. I think it's supposed to be funny, but after 200+ chapters, it's getting tiring.

The dialogue and some characters are very exaggerated, like 1970's children's cartoons. For example, MC will constantly use the same insult on a companion, and the companion will react with the same highly exaggerated outraged response. Many characters also speak with sound effects and catch phrases. I think this is also supposed to be funny, but it's a bit much.

Almost every female character is a preteen girl or a loli-shaped woman. Why is this necessary? Most of them fall for the MC and that stereotypical schoolgirl dialogue and reaction with MC. But there is no romance, because MC has his independent attitude theme going on. Again, this continues on all the time. It doesn't stop. It also doesn't make sense why everyone, even males, like the MC. He doesn't do anything likable. I would understand if people admire his OPness, but not him as a person.

One thing that I think readers will be split on is that the MC changes roles after the 1st 100 chapters. The MC starts out just wandering around, leveling up, and forming connections. After chapter 100, the MC has decided to ally with a long-term goal or a faction. Some readers may be OK with both of these, but some may only prefer one instead of the other. My opinion was that I was concerned the story wasn't going anywhere in the first 100 chapters.

I gave this 3 stars. It's a different variation to the reincarnation/fantasy genre. Fans of the genre will probably be comfortable with it. My rating may be biased; I'm starting to get tired of the MC's attitude

and the dialogue.

Other: This is the WN. There is a LN, but the translation appears to be much further behind than the WN. I don't know what the differences between the 2 are. <<less

This is a really nice light novel to read. Starts off with pretty good pacing, and relationships in this novel are developed pretty well. The main character is very likable, since he has a "does whatever" attitude and is not exactly the typical main character. He is also very intelligent, but very dense (ha-ha). Two problems I have in this light novel though, one being we didn't really get a good description in the half-year time skip, especially with the new characters ... more>>

Great story with a MC that actually uses his brain! Unlike other light novels, the MC doesn't take everything at face value. In other words, he wouldn't just accept the words of a total stranger even if it's the king of an empire who is trying to save the world. The MC stoic personality is a bit of a downer at times, but the complex world developed by the author perfectly makes up for it.

Overall, I would highly recommend reading this novel. I know I did, multiple times... After... more>> reading almost all the novels from wuxiaworld, and many other sites, this is still the only novel I have read more than three times while waiting for the next release. <<less

This novel is much better than any other novels based on summoned heroes (shield hero is too dark for me)..

The most attractive part is the intelligence and foresight of the MC.. He's smart and not influenced by his hormones in decision making..

There are times that he overestimates himself but he never repeats the same mistakes. His businessman style when it comes to doing favors as transactions is actually 'adorable' xD

The repeated loli-magnet gag is kinda annoying, but it's still much better than an MC who doesn't retaliate on being beaten... more>> up by a violent woman.

Basically you would like this, if you are tired of wimpy Japanese MCs with no redeeming factors other than being impulsive when it comes to jumping into dangerous situations to save a girl whom he met 2 pages back, Oh wait, that's not even a redeeming factor!! XD <<less

Spoiler (?) not for the plot, tho.

I really liked the arrogant, self-centered protagonist and the world-building, but I couldn't stomach anymore of those damn loli's. This guy literally has the title of Little Girl Slayer. One or two I can take as a joke (it's par for the course in Japan, I guess), but without fail every little girl he meets falls in love with him and all but a couple of the dozen or so heroines are kids or have the appearance of one. In fact, there's even an... more>> old dude who turns into a little girl after becoming infatuated with the MC.

However, the Translators did an awesome job. Though there wasn't a dedicated one, all but the pickiest of readers will be happy. They really deserve some credit.

3/5 Not figuring in the author's.. Ehem.. Preferences. Generic OP MC campy goodness. Although, I quit reading right after the tournament arc--chapter 200 or so because it seemed the story stagnated and there would never be a reasonable love interest. <<less
