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>>

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...


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 shit. 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 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.


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.

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 ret*rdation. 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 s*upidity 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.


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 s*upid. There's also the cliché ret*rded 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

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

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 dick. 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 s*ave 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

No character development, infested with standard anime trope OP, annoying, s*upid and smart when the plot requires it, lolis. It's tr*sh, 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.

I didn't drop this novel because I hated it out anything. I remember actually liking it at one point. It's just that because of how bad the release frequency was, I slowly lost interest over time, kind of like how long distance relationships turn out.

At this point I don't remember much about the story, but I'm convinced that it'll never be completely translated. I don't recommend purely because of this point alone.

When I first read the synopsis, the leading theme interested me, it sounded quite fresh, even a bit original. Especially since it's so hard to come by a story with a summoned hero which isn't about a dumb protagonist ready to forget about his own world. The idea of this story showed potential, some good points were raised against the typical flow of similar novels. The protagonist (Hiiro Okamura) was just a summoned bystander, he didn't ask to be involved in any political mess of a world he doesn't care... more>> much about, so he ditched deciding to follow his own path. The hero is presented as this loner by choice, smart, bookworm kind of a guy with an excellent memory, that actively avoids any contact with people, as proven by his social life experience in his past world. Unfortunately even in these few chapters that I've read so far it stops working quickly, because author decided to throw it all out of the window at the first possible opportunity. And oh boy was he determined to do so, I've rarely seen a story with a decent idea get this quickly turned into tr*sh. It becomes your typical dumbed down Japanese novel full of s*upid tropes and bad comedy.

Minor spoilers below.


After the summoning our MC goes out on his own and starts getting accustomed to his situation, he learns how to control magic. Hiiro knows that he needs to eat and have a roof over his head, so he goes out to do quests to gain experience and money. We are shown litrpg mechanics, and a part of the world surrounding the starting city. He clearly thinks about how to find his own way of surviving so he doesn't have to depend on the people that forced him into this unknown world. It's a fun little plot, although it's all clearly rushed. Then our protagonist makes a choice fueled by curiosity and interest born from reading local books. He decides to travel.

And that's about where the good part of the story ends. Almost immediately he stumbles upon a pair of travelers. Middle aged male and a very young girl. He suddenly becomes fine with socialising and going buddy-buddy along them, completely contrary to how he was presented while his character instead of expanding processeds to be watered down into a cynical for no reason douche without a trace of all the previous smarts and loner traits. Author completely killed the hopes of any character development. In the very first dialogue we are bombarded with pe*ophile jokes (HA HA IT'S FUNNY BECAUSE WE AREN'T pe*ophileS RIGHT GUYS? RIGHT? YOU SILLY PERV UNCLE HAHA!! YOU LUST OVER THIS GIRL HAHA RIGHT JUST JOKING HAHA unless??) it devolves into a cringe fest of hyping up that kid, badly written encounters without any world building whatsoever. We even get hit by one of low quality Japanese novel tropes: "YOU CAN DO IT KID" - "YES I CAN THANKS DAD" <kid begins to evolve out of nowhere without any build up, becoming obscenely op>. Of course soon afterwards we meet another loli, this time she is 200 though so it's fine OBVIOUSLY. Reading other reviews from people that got further into the novel this only spirals down and intensifies. I can't fully vouch for that as I didn't get there yet but with how the story was going so far I don't have a reason to not believe them.


It's.. I don't know, it's just below mediocre, the writing is bad, the story telling is bad, the plot clearly has not much room to improve and is going nowhere. The author must have had gotten the idea during the shower and then hopped onto his pc as soon as he got out and started writing whatever came to mind. That's how formless it seems.

Is it a good read? No. I guess maybe if you don't care about what you are reading and it's quality and just want to kill some time on a boring sunday. Or if you are into lolis. Although badly written lolis. I will probably drop this soon without any regrets. I wholeheartedly don't recommend this novel. <<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

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 s*ave, 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

Although I stopped reading this long ago because of all these instable release, when I came back to check out the reviews, there seems to be so many negative reviews so I came to clarify many of the critisms. Many are criticizing about all these cliches and plotholes. Guys, please take a look at the release date. This is written before most of these isekai floods happen. I think it's around 2015-16 that this flood occurred. This book is written before that which makes it one of the originals of... more>> isekai genre. Most of the plotholes you see here are not perfected at that time. Please read it with the mentality of reading an old classic. Not that it's too bad. It's actually great at that time. This is one of the books that got me into WN from just LN. <<less

Could've done better. The circumstances and reasons of the MC are dumb to the point of ridiculous. He wants to be alone but lets other people accompany him, wants to eat delicious food but doesn't bother learning how to cook, doesn't want to do troublesome things but let himself drag into trouble be used and exploited for a single ticket to a library which only contains history and some magic books (it is useless to for him the magic books). Hypocritical characters that loves drama so much for the sake... more>> of being hypocrite or does it is the other way around?

I feel bad for the other summoned people beside the MC they are portrayed as buffoons and insulted by the MC just for the sake of being edgy. If I have to compare this to black clover then black clover is has done the shounen genre way better than this konjiki no moji edgy novel. It's cringeworthy when I read some cheap cheesy lines said or thought by the characters... ugh... so cringeworthy. Also if this novel isn't a shounen genre then the MC would be dead a long time ago. But it is a shounen genre and you can make it with power of love and friendship edgy at the end. Oh did I say edgy enough? nah so edgy that I feel like it's not enough to only say edgy edgelord one time. I bet edgelords will love the MC because they have in common.

The first 100 chapters are good for me and it definitely will get 5 stars but when he got to the demon continent plus time skip, it got 0.0000000001 stars. Plus the MC trying to act cool it got worse when he gets to demon continent too. Instead of being level headed MC, he turned into a lame half ass MC. It's boring now and so much cringeworthy along the way. <<less

The first two arcs are very enjoyable. Then we hit the third arc and meet a time skip with big changes which are only briefly explained 100 chapters later. I assume this is because the author decided to make LN events the new canon for WN world which is very disappointing because it seems like a lot of significant events took place which WN readers has no idea about and also some characters personality are changed. Then half way into arc 3, non stop battles starts until the end of... more>> arc 4. 150 or so of battle after battle gets really boring. Then at the end of arc 4 the author pulls a DBZ.

What I mean is where you thought the people you were seeing was the strongest in the world, but nope! They are actually pretty weak compared to this sudden new enemy! Oh and btw, remember how every one was surprised when Hirro can teleport because no one can do that? This new enemy can do that too! Plus all those other crazy things Hirro pulled!

Overall, the parts with the MC is usually interesting to read. The parts without him are usually mediocre.


Major spoilers up ahead which are mostly complaints about sudden changes in the WN that came from the LN: Why did Hiiro change the bird into a human? Why does the bird never drool on the MC anymore? Where did Nikki come from? How did Hirro get to level 221 in those 6 months? How did his sword change into a new sword? Why is Muir suddenly a yandere? Why doesn't Hirro ever call Arnold a pe*vert anymore? Muir is Arnold's original teacher in cooking now? What? Why are we now changing Camus (boy) into a trap? The trap thing feels very forced too since he is now described as a loli that is more beautiful than all the females in the story. Crouch turned from a big buff dude into a loli? Hiiro and the butler often took baths together during their 6 months journey? In the LN Hirro saved and journeyed with a girl who plays a big role into recruiting the legendary blacksmith but in the WN this reveal is confusing because she didn't exist. Bunny loli was supposedly really interested in Hirro's uniqueness (which is one of the major reasons Hirro wanted to get away when they originally met) but now it seems like she doesn't care? I have a lot of other gripes with how the story progressed but I'll just leave it at this.

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 shit. 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

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

It starts really good with a lot of potential

But after a while it gets slow, the battles seems less interesting and the MC too overpowered
