One of my favorites so far. The translator does a good job with the translation. Easy to understand with fine grammar and word choice. The story is nicely unique with good character development and setting. I really liked the situations the MC gets himself involved in, and more than not I find myself grinning. The misunderstandings in the story (I find) are more realistic. The story is good at balancing the comedy and more serious side to keep things interesting. In my obvious opinion it's a great story.

Very interesting despite the common storyline.

What’s unique is that fact that the MC has a rude speech problem which is pretty funny because of the problems he encounters due to it. 🙂 5 stars~~~

This is one of the better j novels out there~

As of Ch.21.

The MC suddenly finds himself possessing the body of a hated villain from a game that he had played. Knowing that the game character is heading down the path of ruin, he decides to tweak and nudge events to prevent his own death.

Unlike other similar stories whereby the MC is proactive and sets out to immediately change his or her fate, Hirasawa Kazuki/Harold Stokes is far more cautious and restrained. His only advantage is that he knows the future events as played out in the game. However, if... more>> he deviates too far from the path or make drastic changes not covered within the confines of the game, then his advantage would be lost as he would be heading into an unknown future route. I personally find his caution and worry to be excessive. Understandable, but strange. It’s like traveling to the past with a history text book: if you made big changes, your book will be useless and you will be uncertain of the future. Once the reader understands this line of reasoning, the rest of the story flows a little more easily.

It’s a very logical way of thinking, but a reader can easily get exasperated by the MC’s behavior and rude speech. It’s like reading the inner working of a tsundere character, even the MC knows his attitude is irritating and too harsh; having somewhat good intentions and yet forced to use abusive language and roundabout methods to achieve his goals. His coarse language is almost a running gag: the MC regrets its usage and yet unable to truly prevent it from spontaneously spewing from his mouth.

In a way, the MC reminds me of the famous Japanese warlord Oda Nobunaga who behaved erratically and infamous for his eccentricities in his youth to hide his deep thoughts and unorthodox ideas.

The story is a little more expansive than other titles as it acknowledges that a game world’s setting would inevitably have details missing or merely implied, resulting in the MC being surprised when an unknown element crops up. The other characters are developed as well, especially the female lead. However we don’t really know much about the game world as yet, as much of the 20 chapters thus far are quite localized. The pacing is a little slow as the author fleshes out the scenes and emotions, but the translation is good and thus it is not a chore to read.

Interesting, will read more. <<less

Makes me yawn!

& MC dual-persona frustrates me.

Basically MC turns inside of a game character which is considered 'tr*sh' to many players.

... more>> This 'tr*sh' character which always to abusive words to people around him.

Now we have a 'good samaritan MC that only exist on a monologue because every time he speaks it's gonna translate into abusive language. Even while people around him knows he's a good person it's not enough to make me feel better.

The problem is probably because there is no 'Comedy' on it to look forward. (Tag contains 'comedy' but so far I never found any joke on it)

Side characters didn't help either, they just exist to admire the MC on the shadow.

That's it! It's just gonna revolve to that scenario. <<less

Beginning is really good. Fast paced, funny sometimes unpredictable.

But later it feels like MC is not smart at all. He thinks and thinks but always chooses worst approaches.

... more>>

why he is always trying to not change the plot? Why he can't just go and kill doctor? Especially when he become his subordinate. It is said that this will not stop the process. And what? 90% problems he faces is because of the doctor. Also why he joined knight order? It basically tied his hands and made him super famous - how does it help him. Why instead of this he can't go get more exp, better armor, train heroes party etc. They would finish story 2 times faster this way. And probably story would also be 2 times more interesting and believable.
He is trying to solve all problems in such pathetic way that only MCs luck saves his life

I found that the Romance between Harold & Erica to be really sweet eventhough both of them haven't reveal their feelings yet but the love that push her to workhard to support the overpowered loner Harold result her to be overpowered too & just 2nd to Harold (she is even stronger than the Hero of the story)

The story is quite fast paced,

... more>> Based on the plot right now it almost reach the final arc in another 1 or 2 volumes more.

Really reccomend u guys to try it as it really is one of the most interesting novel i've read.. <<less

Really amazing. The story is compelling and fun to read. The romance is pretty slow since the main character seems to think everybody

especially the main girl, Erica

hates him lol. The major problem of this novel is how hard the trope of "tragic hero" is pushed. I believe the author pushes this factor too hard into our faces, also the ending looks potentially messy since it looks hard to tie up together perfectly. Luckily, I love the tragic hero trope.

its a really good story, and if I could, I would give this a 4.5

the first two arcs are very very well done and a joy to read, but the third arc is a little iffy. We have a cliff hanger and then suddenly there's an abrupt shift in background characters and working for the enemy. It's a little jarring, especially since it was so good before. Edit: I have finished reading all the available chapters and honestly? I take it back! I love this story, it is truly one... more>> of my favorites and I adore it. While there are still faults it's very enjoyable. MC can come off as overpowered very easily but it's amusing to see his friends almost regard him as a tsundere lol. <<less

I'm currently at chapter 55 (around the beginning of volume 3) and all I can say is... WOW.

Sh*t just got real.

The story starts off as your typical 'slightly intelligent MC reincarnates into game world' trope but the plot grows to become so much more epic than that.

I was just cruising along when BAM the middle of volume 2 smacks me over the head. And suddenly EVERYTHING is cranked up to 11 and I'm on the edge of my seat in fan-anguish because I so did NOT see the story going... more>> in this direction.

And it's almost midnight and I have class tomorrow and I can't stop reading and I NEED TO KNOW WHAT HAPPENS.

And yes, I was high on coffee and sleep deprivation when I took a break from reading to write this review.

And now... Onward to chapter 56. <<less

Excellent slightly-slow paced story. It has a huge amount of world building and character depth. It deserves the high rating it has in ever sense. Even the translation quality is amazing from the very start! Read it... it's definitely an extremely enjoyable story. :)

I don't know, but... it kinda gets boring and a bit stretched at times. I mean... he's still 13, is it too hard to make a time skip? At times it feels like the plot was made on the spot, like how there isn't a conflict so why not make it as if the game plot sped up? The in-game villain suddenly shows up, uwaaah.

If it weren't for Erika, I wouldn't have lasted this long, and even she won't show up any time soon, cause... why the hell not do we make the MC very OP while the rest of the gang are too weak to be considered. Sorry, mainly whining about how Erika is too weak to be given screen because, guess what, she's 13. We don't really know much of the game, and I don't know if it's me that missed the details, but it makes me feel like the game plot sh*t is unrelated to me because I don't know a sh*t about it, and the MC is making such a big deal out of it. It gets boring. MC is too OP, it's a bit unreasonable, well I don't know why it's necessary, but it gets boring, like all we ever know about his strength is that he's strong. By the way, he only imitates game movements, and doing it everyday.

Apparently, that makes him strong. Maybe I should copy Runescape or AQWorlds battle animations so if ever I get transported to another dimension, I don't need a cheat item or a grandpa. Lastly I guess is the characters. Saying it kindly, I can't grow attached to them. A lot of the characters make me irrated. Mostly the ones who overestimate the MC, like Juno (spelling might be wrong), Codey (is this right?), and Vincent. Even the MC himself... I don't know how to express it. I don't particularly like him. Not that I hate him like how I hate the others, but just that he's not likeable enough. All of these are actually personal opinions, and the one true fact is that Erika is waifu, but I can't help but think that the author is somewhat amateurish, or maybe all Japanese Light Novels are like these? By that I mean the plot feels forced. Making her hate him, then making her love him, bla bla bla. Well, I only think she's waifu since... she's just waifu. Just that she had to through that kind of development, which is a bit annoying. So yeah, giving it 2 stars because of Erika, giving it 2 stars becuase the rest of the novel is not particularly interesting.

I have been reading translated novels every day for nearly a decade. You could even say that I am a snob-reader and have read hundreds of translated novels and have put in 1000's of hours into them (instead of TV or netflix, I read novels). I have trouble reading anything that has quality on this website that is less than around 4.3 stars. This novel in particular, is among if not perhaps my favorite translated novel of all time. Everything from the translation, grammar, story, and characters, are each 11/10.... more>> I have read up to chapter 91 twice (and I am finally able to read past that), and I can NEVER read or watch things twice. One other thing that I want to mention, is that perhaps the biggest issue with many other commentors regarding this novel is that the MC supposedly traded some of his lifespan for some power. However, they clearly did not continue reading enough, and shame on them (to avoid spoilers). They also see the MC as an OP character that can beat up everyone, and in a way he is, but he is still only a singular person, and though strong, strength cannot solve everything in this novel for many reasons.

One other thing about this novel is that there is somewhat of a clear continuous trope that the author uses for the MC which stems from his character; the MC cannot control how he talks, which is like an arrogant, rude, self-prideful jackass that cares for no one but himself > however, his actions time and time again, show that he is anything but > other characters figure this out and continue to do so throughout the novel. This can be called the "tragic hero" trope. To me, this is the perfect trope of any novel, and a reason why I love this series so much. The author is a pro at this trope, and to me, it has never once gotten old, especially because characters are NEVER dropped and continuously meet up with each other as they are meant to at the start and continuity of what is meant to be a "game" world (heroes party, basically).

All in all, give this novel a shot. It is well worth it. <<less

The greatest part about this book is honestly the protagonist. He's someone who actually uses arrogant words and stays by them. He's not like a tsundere, when he says something, he goes by it, even if it's a complete lie. He's dissapointed and frustrated when he fails to do what he set out to do and is one of the most unluckiest chatacters that I've read about, though to a normal degree. He's by no means perfect, and completely understands that so he uses his knowledge as best he can... more>> and realizes that without it, it's going to be a big problem. Because of that, he tries to reproduce everything he can while only modifying small bits of it so he can still see what's going to happen next. Thanks to that, various troubles happen, though he's never really in the wrong. <<less

The main character is suddenly thrown into the body of a game character and although he still has his personality from when he was still alive. The game's character Harold Stokes translates his words/feelings portraying what the game wanted Harold Stokes to be. Always getting misunderstood because of the game's characters' portrayal, he doesn't try to fix the misconceptions that people have of him due to the game he knew from before possessing Harold Stokes body.

... more>>

What I liked most of the story was the misconceptions, and I am easily led into a onion ninja trap. I felt myself holding back my manly tears as I imagine and feel what the author was trying to convey in his story.

Having to take responsibilities for something people who have given rumors about without checking the facts. This has made me love the novel more and more.


Very interesting read and I was holding off on reading it because of the summary. <<less

I really love this novel. Although it might not be the best, it is still one of my favourites. The MC can sometimes be really annoying, He does a lot of unnecessary things like helping people out, but in the end it's all part of the plan :D. He carries a lot of burden alone, specially for those who are important to him. He somehow reminds of Itachi, although he is way better of a character than Harold. It kinda disappoint me a little when he snapped his composure when... more>> he met the main antagonist of 'brave hearts'. But at the same time, it makes him not so OP for making such a mistake like declaring his resentment on their first meeting.

I definitely don't recommend it to people who watches and reads too much shounen mainstream manga and anime. Or people who skip a lot of texts on the novel because they often skip the most important details. But if you like Tate no yuusha or Arifureta, this might be another good read for you guys. <<less

One of the best Transported to Game World isekais I've read.

I love the misunderstandings that makes othre overstimate the MC, also it's good to see butterfly effect actually work. The multiple POV is amazing as the serie doesn't focu 100% about MC and allows learn more about the other characters.

MC 4.5/5

... more>> MC is strong but not insane OP due to his constant training as well to know all game character's skills. His sharp tongue is something I personally like as I'm not in the classic sweet words hero.

Secondary Characters

Are well made, with POV you can learn the difference between them from in-game and how they change dueto MC's actions. <<less

This story is about Hirasawa Kazuki a university student who suddenly find himself in the body of the Villain, Harold Stokes, a noble boy in the RPG story based game that he used to play

The plot on how he try avoid his death fate by altering his action without changing the normal story flow is really interesting

And whats more interesting is that every action or conversation that he made are seen as Cruel & Evil by others even if he's doing it out of goodwill

Due to Him being unable to... more>> tell the truth to others, He begin to relentlessly work by himself to change his fate.. Which later result him being the strongest even at a young age & help the hero's team from the shadows..

And I found that the Romance between Harold & Erica to be really sweet eventhough both of them haven't reveal their feelings yet but the love that push her to workhard to support the overpowered loner Harold result her to be overpowered too & just 2nd to Harold (she is even stronger than the Hero of the story)

The story is quite fast paced,

Based on the plot right now it almost reach the final arc in another 1 or 2 volumes more.

I, personaly, think that this series is awesome, it's good enough to make me want to read it all again despite having over 100 chapters to it, and I'm someone who doesn't usually do something like that, I usually go onto to something else like 'I Will Quietly Disappear' which is one of the latest Novels I plan to read so I can confidently say that this is extremely good, as good as 'Otome Game no Hametsu Flag shika nai Akuyaku Reijou ni Tensei shite shimatta...', that's better though but... more>> I'd place this in second place undoubtly, this is really good.

A rare type of isekai which the plot is quite likeable. MC is reborn to hated character, had foul mouth and looking edgy somehow (lol). Typical guys who looking like a bad guys but actually a good guys, just the world setting to MC just too strong to against. There's a lot thing that make this novel isnt pretty good such like wtf slow romance, MC keep trying inconvencience things not alike a smart MC, a lot plothole etc.

However the feeling somehow felt real, altho I know its somehow misunderstand,... more>> some of character inside felt alive and give some feels to reader. Maybe you guys feel annoying, or even sheeding tears.

Im sure 4/5 is enough for rare type isekai but 5/5 just because theres not a lot novel can move ur feeling, especially isekai type. <<less
