Mob… Sore mo Waki Mob no Hazu Nan Desu Kedo!?


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

Afflicted with an illness at 25, my life should have ended when I was 26 years old. However, when I came to, I had become a 6 year old boy. Not only did I have my past memories, I also retained the memories of my current body that I shouldn’t have. Recognizing the six years of memories, I recalled immediately.

The world I had awakened in was a world I’d read about in a shoujo manga in my previous life. It seems I’m on a parallel world trip ….. No, I have reincarnated.

At the same time as I recognized this world from the shoujo manga, I remembered my status.

In the story, I was the subordinate of a stalking horse who fell in love with the heroine. To compete for the hand of the heroine, by the stalking horse’s orders, I got involved by implementing various interferences to all the other love interests like the prince and sons of dukes which resulted in the death penalty. The stalking horse didn’t even bother to protect his subordinate and covered up his own crimes.

I can’t remember if my final moment was captured or not in a panel. Even when I read it, I just skimmed through it. I was a nameless mob and, in addition to that, a supporting mob.

In the shoujo manga, that was my status in this world. Since I have reincarnated, I would prefer if I didn’t appear in the manga at all.

The six year old me has yet to encounter the stalking horse in that world. Like I’ll follow the story and die! Using the knowledge from my previous life, I’ve made a decision to keep on living.

This is a common tale of the protagonist who strives to keep on living by avoiding the encounter with the main and mob characters, and to avoid being involved with them in order to evade the scenario.

I read all the current chapters hoping for something to change, i.e. No more shotacon baiting or overpowered perfect protag, but alas it was not to be. Just another cookie cutter cheat isekai harem.

The protagonist is the typical dense overpowered (reverse?) harem master. So many men, so little time~

He's really adorable in his denseness though and he makes up for it in his wild but amusing thought patterns.

In his past life, he learned most of his "wife" skills as a consequence of being influenced by his mother and sisters. He reincarnates into world that's a weird mix between Middle Ages and one of Japan's historical eras. This is due to the fact that the world is a setting for a shoujo manga so... more>> the shoujo manga author made it very easy for Japanese readers to comprehend the world. There is a lot of world building and since protagonist has a unique constitution and method of using magic, there will be several info dump.

The protagonist reincarnates as a supporting mob fated to die and so he spends his life evading this outcome. He meets a lot of people (mainly men, or rather, they're all men) and spreads his influence in each encounter.

It tends to be a bit draggy, since there are many reaction chapters (modern knowledge, banzai!) but it's tolerable enough. <<less

I've never seen a story screech to a halt so fast as this one. The beginning chapters kept up a good pace, but then a brick wall appeared in the form of one long protracted tea chat that needed to explain the protagonist's goals, motivations and life philosopy all in one go. Maybe this gets better later, but I've rarely seen such a badly done info dump before.

While there isn't a whole lot of active scenes these first 19 chapters, the conversations flow and are good foundation building the rest of the story. The MC is adorable, smart, and goofy. I can't wait for more!

The story is interesting actually.. I love shounen-ai and bl novel..

However, this novel has a really slow paces a. K. A draggy..

The author tried to explain to us about the protagonist way of thinking in chapters.. IN CHAPTERS.. Not just three or four chapters.. I can't stand it on how long he explained his opinion about the country situation on where his living, to the ML (I think one of the men he is trying to give his pieces of mind is the ML because I only know... more>> 4 characters mentioned; the protagonist, two of his friends, and his godfather) so far.. And even his godfather only showup in one chapter, the rest.. Well, you can find out yourself if you read it..

Sooo, idk if I want to read the rest of the novel because, one: slow paces of this story and two: updates just as slow as the novel (I know how hard translating is, but I do hope the translator has a fixed date/day of week to updates)

But overall, like I said earlier, it has a good plot story and the translation is pretty understandable.. <<less

A very average novel, typical OP golden finger dense MC who is in utter denial that he's not a main character after all. There's nothing fresh or amazing but it's an enjoyable read for the most part. The fuwafuwa moments are decent and the MC is cute enough that he's decently likable.

Tbh, I skipped most of the world building and plot dump because my eyes started to hurt. Be warned of a very dialogue heavy info dump (of sorts, came pretty left field tbh) from chapters 13 to like 17.... more>> The MC can be quite confusing because sometimes his 'anger' bursts out suddenly and his mentality can be rather childish despite him being of a higher mental age (I can let this slide because I feel as if his physical age and mental age are trying to sync or something)

The pace is rather slow (4 chap plus convo Jesus) but thankfully skips the child stage most transmig novels love; although this does make the golden finger of the MC more obvious because all his skills are just magically there sigh

Tl;dr it's an average novel that can be draggy and likes info dump but has good translation quality and is decent enough for a read (just skim some info dumps it's not worth it) <<less

I usually don't comment because I tend to feel uncomfortable imposing an opinion, but then again, I also read the comments when I can't get the feel of a story. So I am making an exception here. I guess I felt sad reading all the negative comments about a story I find interesting precisely because of the points criticized...

... more>>

The story is about a real life OP character (in various ways) who ends up reincarnated & adding magic to the mix. This makes interesting to me because many MP's in this scenario tend to use half-baked notions & product ideas & I tend to feel that they don't deserve their OPness when that happens, while here, the guy genuinely knows a lot + he is hard working, humble, ever curious, a bit like an absent-minded scientist full of ideas. It's pretty sweet & funny.

The story alternates between daily life narration (& info dump), action & philosophical moments (let's just say that the tea chat is rather famous by now, lol). I guess the contrast might be jarring for those who look for a more typical isekai. But I like this story precisely because of the reflection moments. The MP might be hilariously dense & lacking common sense, but he genuinely thinks things through when it comes about certain important issues. The MP is basically a contrast of qualities, which makes this novel fun to read.

I don't really have anything against the story. It's a bit on the low pace side with all the installation etc.

There's no "relationship" yet but I'm really not fan of the two grown-up adults (one who has a son) who are silently competiting over the MC, who's only 13 (officially).

Basically, I can't really stand the shotacon vibes.

it just drags on and on and on about MCs thoughts, and in such a boring way. Its a whole lot of exposition with barely any action so far - like if you were given ten slices of bland bread and a piece of cheese. Basically, the pacing sucks. The concept is interesting, but the excecution is lacking. I'd probably only pick it back up once it's completed: otherwise, with how things drag on, you'll never be satisfied.

Dragging too much. Lots of exposition dialogue. Character interactions are boring or completely unreasonable. Long elaborate speeches. Over 10 chapters of just talking... so 3 stars for now. I'm not dropping it yet because I've heard good things, but thus far it's boring.

So far, I enjoyed reading this WN.

The protagonist is a reincarnated person with the usual plot; remembering his past life, wanting to avoid his death flag so he intends to change his future etc... Since he used to be 26 y/o, he's kinda mature so his way of speech is SOO not childlike [ 13 y/o currently (chp 16) ]

Some chapters are a bit draggy btw..

Since this WN is tagged with shounen-ai, we all know that he's going to have his reverse harem phase later on. *cough* And... more>> up to chapter 16, there's no action yet.

Simply, Az is a dense, fluffy feminine main character and I think that the protagonist was an otomen in his past life... Oh btw, I can't stop imagining the other male characters as buff, muscle headed man TT_TT Help

Oh, the translations are okay * thumbs up* But honestly, I love Happy Life more.. (Translated by the same group)

edited 1/9

So I think I'm going to drop this novel for now.. I can't handle babbling and naggy MC's.. There's an explanation nearly about everything making it a bit lengthy causing the pace of the story to be a bit boring.. Yes, he's explaining things in the story to us so that we understand what's what and such. But ugh, like the communication between the MC and the gentlemen. They are flat and slightly one sided since the MC didn't give them an chance to refute. <<less
