Its a fun story where the MC is suddenly in another world as his online game character into a world of swords and magic, it is later explained why he was sent there.
Spoiler

An evil god wanted to turn him into a dungeon master so he would be bound to the dungeon and to make him kill people, but a goddess stops it part way informing him of his death on Earth and allowing him to read the messages his friends sent before telling him he cannot return but, is allowed to live freely with his character's ability.

[collapse]
He is not invincible and cant use magic but takes full advantage of his system. I like this novel a lot but, its just my type and I wont say it is perfect but if it sounds like you might like it give it a shot.

A story about a FPS player that gets transported to another world, but retains game elements. I think if you're here from recommendation of Arifureta, or other 'gun totting' based LN, Its worth the read.

Still, there's a lot of world building, and we'll see how it goes.

Grammar: 2.5/5
Story: 2.5/5
Writing: 2.5/5

First, I would like to state my initial impression of this series: About average.

With that out of the way, Grammar is pretty hard to get around with this series. I understand that translating from one language to another is very difficult, and even professionals (With full publishing companies behind them) tend to make a mess of things. There are multiple contextual differences that just can't be bridged without a deep explanation or having been personally immersed in. Second, the story is a bit lacking in... more>> all areas, it's interesting enough to keep your attention, but not enough to make rereading it enjoyable. Lastly, the writing... I'd actually say that the writing is below average, but the author tries to color in as much of the world as he can. Unfortunately, the writer does not provide enough color. He does not let you experience the environment in any real way, only stating that he is in a cave with a curved wall on one side of the entrance, not even indicating which side. There are no real descriptors given for the environment, you're left to just use your own imagination to put the world together instead of being shown the author's world (which is exactly what writing a story should).

If the translator takes on an editor, I feel that there would be a marked improvement to the story itself, and I would not be above the translator taking some liberties to add some color to the story.

This series is best for a back burner when you've run out of everything else to read and just want some gun-wielding action in a fantasy setting. (Also, I'd ignore that "Multiple Personality" Tag... Nothing as of yet has even remotely shown a hint of personality let alone multiple personalities.) <<less

It's okay, I guess. But it instantly went down for me because of the bullsh*t "I don't want people to know about my power and skills so I'm hiding it because it's troublesome" every. F*cking. Isekai. Protagonist do this shit. I'm currently at chapter 42, but I can already guess the end. In the end, his abilities will still be revealed, right, no matter how he hides it. Then people will be shocked and glorify him. Then, like a good Japanese man that he is, he'll still be humble as... more>> f*ck that he'd rather be mocked and looked down on because people knowing how powerful he is would be "troublesome"? That's one bullsh*t feast right there, man. <<less

Such a shame this Web novel has 300+ chapters and only 18 are translated. Kinda makes me want to study japanese and translate this but I already have enough on my plate as it is to learn a new language and have a translating schedule. Tbh I just hope AI translators get better so we never have to deal with a translator dropping an awesome series before it's finished.

If you enjoyed Gun Ota, GATE and Magic Bullet in Magic land then you will love this series though at this point... more>> I'd recommend following the manga rather than the WN because the manga at the very least is still being updated and has now surpassed the WN translations. <<less

completed +300 chapters but translators have dropped it 2 years ago.

"VR based on fps" that is on COD Advanced Warfare style (which was a failure), MC said that it was the most popular game (5 mi) but he spent quite time playing PVE, whatever, beginning was like puting modern soldiers against roman empire soldiers.

Whatever happened in chapter 64.... well, it seemed to be jokes inserted by tl? meant to be invisible as the text was white, but because I use some addons to change colors on the pages I read, I got that mixed into it.. it may potentially be removed at a later point, for all I know.

Anyways, the story suffers quite a lot from nonsense... the concept is interesting, but the execution is garbage.

I read the entire thing through the raws. The story is good but the translation has people complaining how different it is from the raws and how the translator is unreasonable. Depends on whether you compare it to other translators who give you broken up chapters once a week and take eternity to complete one chapter and charge for it or this translator who can actually do a full one from ncode syosetsu once every week or fortnight and deserve the patreon page compared to other translators who do not... more>> deserve to be the translator for the stories. Personally the translation is great. But the author vs translator is just... why?Its all been done so I dont get it. If you read the raws you'll understand there are virtually no flaws. Also GT is annoying for grammar. Just pointing that out if you read it and don't understand the raws that way. <<less

Pretty much a story you'd pick up to kill time. It can be enjoyable but tbh I found the character developent a bit shallow.

The translator was also pointing out that there were better guns to be used in other situations and that some of the things the author writes may be inacurate so I wouldnt suggest gun fanatics to read this I guess.

Storywise eh... pretty much cliché with most of its bases and OP protagonist bcus guns. It would have been better if the author wrote in a way that... more>> helps readers connect and pace it out better but eh.

You dont miss out anything if you dont read this honestly. Its pretty much just meh.

Like Im upset about how the author wrote it since I feel disconnected from everything and there were several ways to make it all better and I wanted to somehow relate with even the main protagonist. But really in terms of immersion you dont get much which is sad since the FPS system he works with is pretty interesting and I would have liked to see a more developed and relateable main protagonist.

Although the author tries to make it seem like the protagonist's thoughts are pretty deep, as the reader we dont feel any of that profoundness. Like Im not given a set up that makes me feel this guy's dilemma its just mentioned and told to you in a sort of disconnecting way that somehow when you see him doubting himself or something similar you would just ask why would he even have that kind of thought? Or isnt this development way too fast?

Overall I expected much from it but was disappointed. <<less

It's not the best novel I've read, not by a long shot, but there's still something there.

At least one thing I can say for certain is that I definitely wouldn't rate it this highly if the translation wouldn't get way better later on in the story. Skip the spoiler to ignore my rant about that.

... more>>
Spoiler

The first chapters are generic, filled with translation errors and mostly kinda bland. That doesn't bother me as much as how the TL's kept interrupting the story with their own comments and generally just bashing the MC and his decisions. Which I usually can get behind, but in this case it just seemed unnecessary and at least to me it just looked like the TL tried to flex with his vast information on guns, and why the MC is describing and using them the wrong way. WHICH IS POINTLESS as the guns are from the game he played, they aren't meant to be 100% realistic. At least it gets better after a while, but it still went on for way too long and I almost stopped reading thanks to it.

[collapse]

The story does rely heavily on cliches, but... Ok, I have nothing to defend this. It's pretty much self insert wish-fulfillment, but he isn't as op as most of isekai protagonists. His advantage mainly comes from the fact that he simply uses a different system than all others in the world. It has disadvantages, costs, and usually he thinks thoroughly about what he should do and what weapons to use. (Maybe too thoroughly.) And while he does eventually go down the route of hiding his true power, he doesn't just bulldoze through everything and gather a harem like some mc's.

I guess the best way to describe why I like this is because the MC, while extremely generic in certain aspects, is a breath of fresh air in others. <<less

The quality of this novel is so-so, there isn't anything special other than the fact the male protagonist is using modern weapons in a fantasy world. There is no depth nor intriguing moments that last.

I tried reading this cause it's somewhat the same as the " Magic Bullet in Magic Land", with all the modern armaments and stuff about it being from a game or something.. but.. I'm kinda disappointed on how it was delivered, like reeeaaaally..

"In depth explanation/discription on every little thing can ruin the mood that you wish to show in a story"

I wanted to read it, but I really can't dive into.... aaaarrrgghhh!!

Honestly speaking, I much prefer the manga version than the LN. However, both the manga and the novel, despite enjoying a couple of interesting premises, they kinda feels a bit... I dunno, undercooked?

Interesting premise #1: MC can summon guns, vehicles and other gear from a VR game he'd been playing, but can't use magic and consequently is labelled as 'Manuke'. The TLs translated it as 's*upid', but the context made me think that maybe it's supposed to be 'useless' or 'incompetent', but what do I know. To use/summon his items,... more>> he must acquire and spend a specific type of crystal dropped by the dead monsters.

Interesting premise #2: MC's body is the avatar from the game and it comes with a couple of quirks, such as auto-regen over time, and at least in the manga (don't remember whether it's been mentioned in the LN) he doesn't seem to age. Does that mean a god or whatever has created him? I do remember that gods aren't all that talked about if at all in the novel, so I can't help but wonder how this will play out. Oh, and also from the manga, other people can't heal MC with magic.

The earlier part of the translation can be rough but does get better. However, you still notice a fair few editing, translating and even technical mishaps on every chapter. For instance, c117 is exactly the same as c116.

Actual story-wise, it's not all cliche-fest as some might say. For one, our MC doesn't hesitate to kill people if they threaten his life/mission. And no harem (so far), which is a pleasant surprise in a Jap shounen power fantasy LN like this one.

For now, I'll stick to it and see how it goes. <<less

I normally avoid stories that mix modern weapons and fantasy, but on a whim I gave this one a chance and was pleasantly surprised to discover the author did a good job of blending these two paradigms into a single story. Ironically enough it turns out the way to make both elements fit together well in a story is keep the distinct. The main character is an aberration who literally plays by a different set of rules than everyone else in the world, and that fact brings him not just... more>> benefits, but also real downsides that he is constantly coping with.

The other thing I like about this is how the romantic subplot is handled. First of all there is one but it's not the primary focus of the story as of the time this review is written. Most Japanese WNs go one of two ways: either the MC is too dense or cowardly to pursue anyone romantically or else every woman he meets jumps into bed with him immediately. The novel fortunately avoids both of those extremes. The MC meets a girl, notices that she shares his interest, and then responds in a way approximately like how a real person might respond.

Other than those two aspects the rest of the story is fairly average, and I mean that in a good way. Plot, world building, characterization are, while not outstanding, solidly acceptable. <<less

I will go to the point of what I want to say. I already read the raws up to the last chapters (300+) and true to that its quite sad that the translated parts aren't keeping up or maybe slow, not bad as it is but... as I read other reviews made me sad, these people put a review from where they are reading at the early stage of the story and the circumstances of the characters (MC and other side characters). To be honest, this is a good write,... more>> if ever these people read the novel up to the end, they would understood and will be more satisfied. I DO RECOMMEND to read this until the last chapter!

About the stuff that most comments say "I don't like it that the MC hides his ability" and such is quite understandable but not 100% agree to it. Now here comes a spoiler!! Abort if you haven't read the further parts of the novel!
Spoiler

Why the MC hides his abilities? Then to say the fact that his abilities are in "Blood line" which is not usually normal to this World full of dungeons, knowing that the "Blood line" holders were once, I'll said it again, ONCE, a dungeon master.

I hope readers give a good take for this novel, I recommend it. <<less
