My 【Repair】Skill Became an Almighty Cheat Skill, So I Thought I’d Open Up a Weapon Shop


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

The main character, Luke, has been an adventurer for fifteen years, but he could only use the skill [Repair]. Because of that, he was known as the eternal rank E, third-rate adventurer.

One day, Luke was hired for cheap by a hero’s party to do odd jobs, when he was forced to bear the consequences caused by the hero’s mistake, and was left behind in the labyrinth of a difficult-to-clear dungeon.

Luke was prepared for death, but his [Repair] skill evolved during his survival from the brink of death, and Luke managed to escape.

Now that Luke had returned alive, he decided to stop doing dangerous jobs and turned over a new leaf.

Using his evolved [Repair] skill, Luke opened up a weapon shop for adventurers in a village with a small dungeon.

He aimed for a slow life with his second life. His second life, where he lived quietly and comfortably!

……at least, that’s what he thought, when a major incident shaking the entire country appeared before Luke’s eyes…..?

The title reeks of mediocre OP Isekai but the MC isn't almighty, there's no cheap harem as he's dating a single girl (there are 2 or 3 possible harem members but I don't think it will go that way), the plot is quite decent and the other male characters are quite good too, while not a masterpiece that will be remembered forever this novel is worth reading.


Other reviewers are too focused on the revenge but I can say that it doesn't hinder the story at all since the MC is... more>> proved to be a victim early on and he doesn't need to punish the Hero personally since the Kingdom also considers him a traitor, so while he hates the Hero for what he did the MC doesn't waste his time hating the Hero of plotting against him. <<less

This novel is somehow what you call a weak novel. It's kinda exciting and triggering your curiosity at the beginning chapter. Then at the following chapters, it became somehow dull and plain to the point of not wanting to read anymore. This MC is certainly what you call a blacksmith who has the skill "Repair" which is quite rare among the isekai class in comparison to "Hero"and "Magician/Sorcerer"popularity. By summary of the story, he had a situation of betrayal by the hero party and cast away to the point of... more>> not having anything left in his possession. In his luck, he decided things and want to start over by opening a blacksmith shop with enjoying his slow life style. Perhaps to the reason of focusing "slow life", the story were progressing at slow pace or passive rate. Additionally, it had a less action scene to the point that this novel somehow resembling a person who is on vacation/retirement.

This novel is not recommended for those who expecting intense battle/action or world adventuring. <<less

To be honest I'm kind of baffled by the positive reviews. At its best this novel is simply mediocre. At its worst it's lazy and hackneyed.

The MC's ability has long stopped having anything to do with simply repairing. Rather it's a deus ex machina do-anything ability that's called "repair" for some reason. For every single problem the MC encounters his solution is always, "I know, I'll use repair!" This is lazy writing at its worse. The only fun in this for the reader is to try and anticipate what convoluted... more>> rationalisation the author will come up with to justify why "repair" is usable in every situation.

That could maybe be forgivable if the novel had something else going for it... but it really doesn't. The setting is as cliche as it gets and the characters are barely developed. Really I can't think of a single reason anyone should be reading this... <<less

I couldn't read any further. It starts off with a dull setup of the story's world, but the biggest sin commited is the story used the tired old cliche of "MC's party members are the worst kind of people who abuses MC and forces him to gain/show his super abilities and then take revenge upon them/or they will taste karma afterwards".

(Very similar to the "drunk/corrupt/perverted adventurer or noble threatens/attacks MC/his harem and forces him to gain/show his super abilities" cliche)

Worst still, it just skips the character intros and... more>> interactions prior, and just drops straight into the 'abuse event'.

I can't see this novel going anywhere good. <<less

I'm not sure why this has a lower rating, I personally think it's a really good novel. There will never be a novel that doesn't have at least one cliche, so don't drop it just because you see it.

Honestly, I find it odd that anybody came into this novel expecting a fast-paced action story despite seeing the title, description, and tags. Time said, "resembling a person who is on vacation/retirement." accurate, considering the MC says that he is, "Taking a break from adventuring" after what happened in the first few... more>> chapters.

Give it a try, then you can tell me if it's good or not! <<less

Reading some of the reviews made me scratch my head.

Dull? Read the tags, it's 'slice of life.' Expect fluffy, not furious.

Cliche? Like every other Asian web novel. Some writers, like this one, can make it work. Some can't.

If you like a story about a decent regular guy finding a way to get along and help out his friends, this is worth the read. If you want stupidly infinite power ups to the MC has to even more dangerous than he is now, don't waste your time.

Decent read, once you get past the good old arrogant hero cliche. Japanese style weak MC with some common sense gets kinda OP skill and takes advantage of it for a better life, but he gets roped into other’s problems somehow. Not much else to say from me other than its worth a look.
