Middle-aged Adventurer Kein’s Good Deed


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

Kein, a middle-aged adventurer, found a very rare item, the 『Resurrection fruit』 in the middle of his everyday routine herb gathering.

He contemplated selling it for a lot of money, but suddenly met a girl looking for the fruit to save her companion’s life.

She reminded him of Altena, his childhood friend who had passed away, so he gave it to her in exchange for a paltry sum.

In truth, the girl was actually the strongest adventurer Anastrea, known far and wide as the ‘Sword Princess’.

The next day, the lowly D rank Kein suddenly received an invitation to join an S rank party… he managed to defeat a terrible and strong monster and miraculously gained lots of money… and finally recieved a confession from a 13 year old saint.

Kein’s previously simple life is changed completely because of his encounter with Anastrea.

Middle-aged man (local character of another world, 35 years) is surrounded by women of different ages, races and status, even so, he thinks that he is not popular because he is middle-aged (japan and the nonsense), the novel does not have the harem tag so even with all the female cast, it can end in nothing or with only one, and the protagonist is dense despite being told in his own face that every female living being wants his thing. The most regrettable thing is that this novel has a... more>> great score in votes on the original web, which suggests the quality of the readers of this type of novels. If you can ignore the cliche more "retarded" that can be given to a main character like this, go ahead.

P.S: For novels like these I like netorare. <<less

... The main character's not from Japan, I'm pretty sure, but he does act like it. You'd think someone born in a fantasy medieval setting who's been an adventurer for 20 years wouldn't act so polite and self-effacing with literally everyone, yet here we are, another guy with a generic Japanese salaryman mentality getting a harem of teenage girls with no effort and no action because of his worthless personality.

I still rated it 3 stars because other than the protagonist everything else seems pretty good if on the generic side,... more>> but I don't really feel like following him around, watching him do his best to be mediocre. <<less

Surprisingly, a good novel for entertainment. Altho it's just 5 chapthers now, I can see some potential on it in the future chapthers. The MC is just a nice and kind middle-aged men that will get a harem (yeah, it will happen eventually, maybe with yanderes but need to be 100% sure before tagging it) because of a good deed.

Can't say much about the characther yet, but the girls (two confirmed to have some feelings for him when I'm writting this) tend to have the clichê of falling in love... more>> because the MC is a good guy, however, they did a research about him and got to know him better than just a mere act of kindness, so I can pass the clichê.

The writting is good and the translator is doing an amazing job. I hope he can find a new house to stay and continue to translate this novel since it's quality is so good to not be used.

Overall, I would say it's a nice novel to read. I don't expect OP protagonist or some great quest for the world, but a nice slice-of-life comedy adventure to relax once in a while. <<less

First off, the saint is being described as being 13, not the 20 as in the descriptiodescription.

Second: my luck! I started reading this just yesterday and was sad that it hasn't been updated for almost 4 months only to have it update a few hours after I got to chapter 16.

What I can say about it: easy heroines, easy heroines everywhere. The saint effectively falls for him without him speaking a single word to her. If I had to describe the protagonists power, it would be the divine blessing of... more>> fortune. His luck stat must be broken. <<less

So far, the story seems fairly cliched and is occasionally awkwardly translated, so it isn't great, but there's nothing egregiously awful about it so far as long as you like light novels. I'm giving it a 3 for now and withholding judgement until there's more to see.
