Let’s be an Adventurer! ~Defeating Dungeons with a Skill Board~


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

Karaboshi Haruki has no presence as far as can be recognized, and so he became an adventurer with only the desire to “stand out.” One day, a dungeon appeared under his home in Hokkaido. Coincidentally, he picked up a “Skill Board” with which he can spend skill points to increase his growth rate. Is it possible to become a popular person by obsessively diving into your home dungeon everyday?

Started out interestingly enough but the tense atmosphere quickly deteriorated. I finally dropped it when they started to literally farm the dungeon. The mood has become light hearted and it's now just a slice of life kind of story.

I've definitely seen worse stories with the 'dungeons appear in the real world' setting. The main character has a gimmicky sort of concept - he's someone who is used to being overlooked to a silly degree - but it's better than him being yet another bland, generic, white rice protagonist. Worth a read, though the latest translator's website is basically cancer.

Let's not mince words- this story isn't particularly good.

That said, it's not as bad as some suggest, though it has its flaws. I find it interesting & hope it improves.

The Good:

    • The MC is somewhat interesting. His character is pretty simple and somewhat relatable, though his goals are trite.
    • The author put some small bit of effort into his world (though to be honest there's nothing special there other than the specific 'cheat' used- and that's not 'new' by any stretch).
    • Some humor is 'ok'- definitely not the author's forte.
    • Use of 'Net responses' for development, information, and feedback is done rather well (considering the rest of the story anyway).
The BAD:

    • Author is crazy verbose. Explains too much, too often.
    • Characters are all stereotypes, except the MC- who is two (borderline MPD) stereotypes vying for dominance (not literally, but close enough...)
    • Plotting is both erratically paced and often forced. Though not unusual for this kind of story (isekai), it is too fast for a character based story (fast development vs 'deeper' characters). Mostly 'impatient author' issues.
The Different:

    • This is an odd 'weak to strong' story that has potential to do something different. Not sure if this author can pull it off, but may be worth watching it's development.
For the time being, this is nothing special- we'll see if it stays that way. It has potential, but the author may be unable to reach it fully...

Really wish someone would pick this up again.

I enjoyed a lot of what people are complaining about. The author does get pretty descriptive about things that we honestly don’t need to know about. The pacing is fine, the author is probably trying to not just make the MC the strongest in the first 50 chapters. And I’m a big fan of MC’s attitude. I’ll put it in spoilers, though it’s probably not necessary.

... more>>

The MC has the innate ability to go unnoticed, and by innate ability I mean completely uncontrollable at this point in translation. His purpose to becoming an adventurer is to become famous enough that people will always notice him, mixed with it being a good source of money. Recently in the newer chapters we can see that he is really getting into the fighting to the death, adrenaline junky aspect. It’s not often that a MC is a battle junky and I like the difference.


The harem that’s coming is completely unnecessary though, I can’t fathom its place in the story. Probably just to add in female characters that don’t need developed personalities. <<less

Bit unique.

Not the first time i've seen this style story I'd dub "inverse isekai" when the other world comes to you.

Typical MC gets a cheat/special power that gives him an advantage.

... more>> Mostly enjoy the plot/premise so far however if I were to criticise one major point in the story, the main character has a small "presence" basically like he innately and unintentionally is in stealth mode at all times and despises this fact and thus is trying his best to stand out so he can be recognized.

Thing is if he resents his lack of presence so much why the heck would he name himself "air" on the official hunting forums/bbs.

Secondly given the nature of his cheat since it allows him to "peer" into the inner workings of the "level up" system and he discerns that skills are awarded/created person to person based on their suitability/what they actually do, why the hell if he has such a small presence would he not innately have a stealth type skill?

Otherwise a fairly solid story so far. <<less

The MC has a mentality of loser. Too much self retort. Oh, I had a thin presence so I'm like Air, how can I dense my presence? But, he keep using that s*upid mask, and not let to she know him even after he saved that girl. f*cking idiot. Also, the way he act is like an 8 grader, for what mimicing other people blog? Why he not upload the picture or a video about him defeating hundreds of centipede if he really want to get known? Too much hole... more>> for the plot, the explanation is so simple, for example, nuclear is useless against dungeon, what the cause then?? *sigh... <<less

The Novel as a whole is pretty good if you want to find a munchkin novel. However it does get a little repetitive,

My only problem is the numbering of chapters with Asian Hobbyist such as ch 35 of the WN is labeled as ch 47-49 on Asian Hobbyist

Off to a great start, and (as of c7 part 1) the MC has yet to find a way to "cheat" extra skill points, but he is growing level wise quickly, so potentially over powered, but he isn't "teh bestest at everything and is the prettiest and handsomest guy alive" which is a nice change of pace. It has promise, but so far is average (hence the 4 stars). The main aspect I'm worried about is that as we have another protagonist who has the "no one ever notices me,... more>> and therefore my nickname it air, however I'm not stealthy" trait, which can get really anoying from the ways the author chooses to get around it, so I'll wait to see how they handle that before adding or removing more stars. <<less

This is a boring story with nothing special going for it. It's not the worst you can find, but it's overall pretty bad. The translation quality is not good, the text is chunky and doesn't read well. You also get you average ret*rd MC who calls himself an old man at the age of 27. There is nothing special about dungeons in the real world, it's just basically your normal isekai, but without the isekai.

Overall it's not enjoyable at all. The attempt at humor in this novel is just sad.... more>> Not funny and just a bunch of overused gags we all have seen before. <<less
