He never performed well in either middle nor high school, and even after becoming an adult, he never worked. Be it morning, noon or night, he only played an online game. For him, being the world’s number one rank, playing that online game, was his very reason for living.
One day, his account was hacked and his character deleted. Restoration was impossible. Nothing that could be done. The number 1 rank that he literally spent his life to attain and to defend was now lost. Filled with despair, he turned to suicide.
When he opened his eyes again, there was the online game. No, the world itself looked similar to the game. He had been reborn as the extra character of the premium avatar he created in the past, but left untouched.
The former world’s top, was reborn in a world that looked like that online game. That was the beginning of his extraordinary legend.
A knight, a cat, a dark elf, and so on. Together with several unique companions, his training to regain his “world’s first rank” now begins.

Like seriously, the fact that he f*cked both Sylvia and Yukari are said in a single sentence, in the most off-handed way possible. HUH? When did this development happen when had no interest in them before, and there were no indications that the story was going to go this way? I wouldn't have read this if I knew that was gonna happen.
Bland, mediocre wish-fulfillment with OP MC who is an "all-rounder" who is good at everything, therefore bad at nothing with no discernible personality despite supposedly having the drive to become the best at something in his past life. Side characters are harem candidates that fall into his party with essentially no effort. Of course, being Japanese, no matter how beautiful and willing, MC's sexual desires are never realized or voiced beyond PG-13.
Even though he has transmigrated into the world through unknown means, it is 100% a game world. Things have stats, and hp, and everybody in the world is aware of them. Dungeons magically regenerate as soon as you exit them.
MC is particularly s*upid, in that he never tests anything in advance, just assuming everything will work exactly as it did in the game he played, despite it being obvious that having been upgraded into a living world that he inhabits, he can easily be surprised at the differences between a game and a game world, such as blacking out when hit in the head by a club. Of course, the novel never punishes him for it, and he just merrily keeps on doing it. He never stops to ponder why the very strange world is the way it is, or how he got there, and really, it's hard to fathom how he could have actually reached #1 in the "real world"
Fortunately for him, he starts with every advantage under the sun; just for starter's he's apparently the most beautiful man in the world because he's a cash shop character. Then he has his encyclopedic knowledge of the world while the game denizens are degraded to lacking basic knowledge or the intelligence to seek it. He has a cheat where he learns things instantly when denizens of the game world do not. And he starts off a billionaire, because he's an alt.
Let's be frank, if this was a game, he'd be a cash-shop smurf using cheats who plays straight from walkthroughs. Worse, it becomes quickly apparent that the only reason he has transmigrated is to make it easy for him, because actual other Players would represent competition which would require the MC to display some sort of talent that makes him beyond a self-insert blob.
All of this might be forgiveable if the writing was good, but this is what you're faced with reading this mess.
"For the first 2-3 laps, we proceeded in a relaxed manner while prioritizing the acquisition of Eko's 【Shieldmanship】 skills.
From 【Shieldmanship】 I only want her to learn 6 skills. In addition to the basics 《Soldier Shieldmanship》 and 《Lance Shieldmanship》, there is 《Knight Shieldmanship》, 《Gold Shieldmanship》, 《Bishop Shieldmanship》and 《Dragon Horse Shieldmanship》.
The other ones are attacking skills with shields, so these six skills are enough for defense.
Eko easily acquired everything except the 《Bishop Shieldmanship》 and 《Dragon Horse Shieldmanship》. Each of their effects are: 《Soldier Shieldmanship》 normal defense, 《Lance Shieldmanship》 piercing deflection, 《Knight Shieldmanship》 defense + knockback, and 《Gold Shieldmanship》 range guided defense + knockback."
Don't forget the epic description of fights:
"Listen Eko. Activate your skills to match my voice as you defend. It should take roughly 15 minutes without breaks. But if you make a mistake, it's starting from the beginning again. Can you do it? "
I give her some instructions before confronting the Rock Turtle.
"..... Yep. I can."
Eko nodded with an unusually serious expression and then closed her mouth.
With my voice as the trigger, she rushed in front of the Rock Turtle.
So far, we've defeated the Rock Turtle around ten times. Up until now, Silvia and I have been attacking it with 【Archery】 from the back while Eko defends at the front, but this time is different."
That's right, there was no description of the fight itself, unless you count "rushed in front" as a battle description.
You might think that skillful character personalization is something that can redeem it, but...
"Eko looked happy, as if she was having fun every day. She often asked "What will we do today?" or "What will we do tomorrow?" and when I answered with something she'd go "Kyaaa!" and cheerfully jump around. She's supposed to be a cat demihuman, but from the way she acts she seems more like a dog."
This could easily be a parody where nobody has a name. MC could be called "Generic Harem Protagonist Cheat", first girl could be "Female Knight", second girl could be "Catgirl", and so on and so forth. People's personalities are defined by NPC tropes.
You've read this before, and it's particularly sparsely written this time around.
But honestly, this was my tipping point where I stopped:
"This is my wrath. A warning not to look down on PvP games. If you don't wear down your nerves and put your life on the line, there's no way to be the top in PvP. If you're not that serious, it just looks like you're trolling. And even if the surroundings allow it, I will not."
The author is an idiot. He has his MC, a gamer, telling people in the game world that they're not taking a fight seriously because they're not putting their lives on the line in a magic school tourney and that's the reason they won't win and all they're doing is playing "a s*upid game". I don't think it's possible to be more hypocritical than this. I get that he *thinks* he was putting his life on the line in his past life, but obviously he wasn't. That was just self-delusion, and there's no sign the author gets it.
At it's very best, it's passable at what it does. But considering the genre as a whole, it does not do a single thing well enough to be noteworthy, and the only thing that keeps it from being total tr*sh is that it can't be taken seriously at any point.
this is probably one of the most bland, boring, derivative, and unoriginal stories I've ever read. This was honestly a waste of time and I don't know how I managed to get through 3 volumes of this.
i picked this up after reading the manga because I'm a sucker for isekais, and I thought that the power system was interesting. Also the MC using his game knowledge to abuse bugs and a bunch of other features in the game to his advantage was cool, and seeing him rushing through dungeons and bosses with well thought out strategies was nice, and I thought that the novel was actually pretty interesting.
and then I read like 50 more chapters of it and then all of my expectations were thrown out of the window because this just gradually devolved into the typical female harem male power fantasy isekai story.
dont get me wrong, I dont mind predictable or generic stories, but when you bring absolutely nothing new to the table and have every single cliche in the book, thats when a story becomes really unsatisfying and unenjoyable. Oh yeah, and with shallow ass characters and an unlikable protagonist
first of all, lets start with second, the protagonist. He's one of the most intelligent, perceptive, and charismatic people in the entire novel who's able to solve everyone's problems despite being a shut in neet? And most of his thoughts and decisions just made me roll my eyes
he runs through a dungeon and gets 30 billion CL from a bunch of mithril. What does he do with his newly amassed riches? He spends it on a bunch of mansions that he doesnt need, instead of, say, helping other people like eko's beastman village which is literally stuck in poverty? Or helping out the bunch of homeless people and thieves riddled across the land (which are literally like half of his servants). Or maybe freeing a bunch of s*aves with his money instead of just a hundred? Oh, but of course none of that coincides with his ideals and so he doesnt do any of that. After all, hes only focused on becoming the toP iN tHE wOrlD!1!!!11111
speaking of which, he travels to isoreus, a place in another country, and fights a demon wolf girl named anko for four months, essentially leaving everyone he knows behind, just to get her. I didn't have any issue with that, and honestly leaving his teammates to train their skills by themselves was pretty cool, and so was getting a new powerful ally, but risking his life unnecessarily was honestly not it. He nearly gets killed by anko because "rUnNnINg aWAy iS FoR pUSSiES" (which makes the goblin thing he brought along to be basically useless?), even though him dying would have caused everyone he left behind at the seven mansions he purchased to wonder what the hell happened to him. His death would also make the duchess's efforts completely futile, and his absence would have also led to the empire taking over the kingdom, which would eventually cause Maine's death, but of course he doesn't care about any of that because why should he. And when he finally gets her through pure complete chance and a gamble on his life, he begins commenting on her MASSIVE BOOBS numerous times because hes a straight male harem protagonist
speaking of harems, literally everyone around is either flat out in love with him, or sees him as a god (coughcough the one hundred s*aves yukari indoctrinated coughcough), which honestly gets annoying.
even after all that, I still decided to read it. Why? Maybe because somewhere in my heart there was the small, minuscule hope that the story would become better. Maybe I thought that this typical, generic isekai story would give me something new. Maybe I was thinking that it would somehow subvert and exceed my expectations. Maybe I wanted it so badly to prove to me that I wasn't underestimating it.
it did none of that, and when he decides to make love to yukari (who he barely talks to after four months and honestly doesnt even have that strong of a relationship with) for an entire night in, you guessed it, chapter 64a, I just couldnt take it anymore
oh, and dont get me started on the gay macho man trope they used as a disgusting, pathetic attempt at humour (it's not cool)
im mad and disappointed that a story I thought had so much potential at first halfway became such a massive waste of time.
i feel cheated. Give me back my time please
- Attempt to keep the harem fleshed out; at least, the author is trying. The catgirl feels like a mascot, but every other girl has some personality and character development.
- The POV of narration sometimes changes, that I like. It helps you to understand the side characters; the harem participants especially benefit from this.
- The author has omitted boring parts like grinding, dungeon fights, stats, etc. Cons: - The first-person... more>>
