A good read, however, the pacing is a bit slow compared to other light novels and might put off those who aren't avid readers. The MC gets optimistic by nature but will get beat down by harsh reality over and over. Getting over that and trying to live a somewhat normal life is part of the story and if you don't like "beta" characters, you might not like this story.

-Many characters with their own personality
-Doesn't break own world's law (e.g. If a story say it's impossible to resurrect... more>> someone then it's impossible)
-Realistic and bleak
-Fleshed out world

-The pacing in the story is very chaotic, the atmosphere also changes quickly
-Lack of character development in the personality sector
-Other than that one certain village, MC rarely has contact with surroundings <<less

MC get summoned to another world. Instead of meeting a princesses and getting slave harem he gets tortured by religious nuts. This is the story, about after he escapes, to another continent where humans and demons mix, and religious fanatics persecute them in the name of their god. To me this political stuff is the best part, when it does not drag to long. There is a magic system in this book but the ins and outs of it are spread out by dozens of chapters. The girls are interesting... more>> but they fall into the troupe of being super at whatever they do, the fairy is a super fairy the alchemist is the super alchemist and so on. Its slow, because this guy never wins against anyone important antagonist and this seems to be used to drag out the story cause the author won't know what to do once this 12 big bads are killed.

I will pick this up after series is done or ads another couple 100 chapters that I can binge. <<less

Personally I think the story isn't really that dark, if you want real dark stuff go see Tower of Karma. Overall I like it. The thing I find bad in the story is that somehow the MC is still your standard japanese MC after all the sh*t that has happened in the story.

I wonder why people say this novel is dark and such and compare it to GOT. I read this novel until chapter 223 and If you’re really expecting a dark novel with a sh*t destiny for the protagonist where he struggle to keep his sanity and at the same time survive in a harsh world, then you should seek something else. I really don’t know how to put itwithout giving spoilers, but I can say that those tags are wrong.

... more>>

The MC suffered all kinds of torture and doesn’t break down, he’s been tortured for months and is still someone who easily trusts others, help people he doesn’t even know and is the typical japanese mc: dense, polite, and so on. The tragedy tag seems to come from the fact that a lot o people the MC know die but most of the novel consist of heartwarming scenes between the MC and his friends.


By no means I hate this novel, but I was sure hoping for something different when I started reading it. So I give it a 3/5 for now. <<less

Enjoyable series but the pacing of the story is REALLY slow. The first fifteen chapters you have to dredge through to get to the main plot of the story. The author likes to re-tell the story through different POVs of the MC’s party/affiliates and the enemy’s POV. As well, the characters on the enemy side are very unremarkable and typically annoying. However, this series is one of the few, if not only, yandere heroine which leads to lots of interesting moments.
