I'd really give this a 3.5

It starts out well, however, slowly becomes less exciting. It lacks a finesse to keep you guessing and addicted. Regardless, I'm still reading and enjoying this novel though.

Worth a read if you have too much time on your hands.

This novel is honestly out of my expectations. The plot is one of the best I have ever read. It was so complex and exciting that I can read it for that sole purpose. The MC is just struggling to survive but, maybe because of his idiocy, he sets everything in motion, not according to the game. His actions and decisions are shown to neither be good ones or bad ones because they have such diverse effects that leads to multiple results. Whether that will be his or another person's... more>> demise and suffering. Even so he makes them, granted that he does hesitate but he thinks over his choices carefully. Then again, he is only a normal human so it almost never completely goes his way. Because of all the things he changed piling up on top of each other, it makes more problems and keeps the wheel spinning and the dominoes knocking. It is a beautiful example of the butterfly effect.

The characters, although interesting, is not that in-depth except for the MC and Erica. There is not much to know about supporting character like Itsuki and the Stokes parents because their background is irrelevant to the game plot. Some character also probably wont appear again like Norman, Jake, and Zen.

He is also excessively op. Really op. But in front of the last boss, he is helpless which puts me in a puzzle.

The mc's feelings and personality are never really explained with his own pov but more of the other characters surprisingly. It's given through their thoughts and impressions of their interactions with him.

Overall it's very interesting and will keep u hooked. It's a really well developed piece that can be better improved. <<less

Don't understand what people are talking about when they say this doesn't have cliches and the story is well written. The MC is pretty much walking misunderstanding machine, and he have all the cliches of bad boy (bad outside but good inside). The characters are hella a lot shallow and have depth
Spoiler

when Juno tells her master how he is good boy and starts crying breaking her character

I wish I could go back to the past me and shoot myself for not reading this novel sooner. Then again, I wish I could go back to the me from earlier and shoot myself or reading it so soon and running out k chapters. Basically, it's as good as everyone says. Great writing, great translating, great plot with a mix of not over the top action and comedic scenes to balance everything out. Add to that, though misunderstood MCs tend to annoy me when it's overdone, I think this... more>> is certainly within reason as the MC undertakes every action in order to perpetuate the misunderstanding for the greater good (him still being alive at the end of the story).

Even better, the MC is likeable without being an OP wimp good guy hypocrite caught between trying to proselytize Japanese laws in a world where they're unfitting and disregarding Japanese laws because... harem. All in all, I'm looking forward to continuing this series.

As for the series being long winded- it's a Japanese novel. I've yet to come across any that weren't long winded and provided enough detail for me to understand the story. I'm guessing since it's a language that so relies on subtleties, it's difficult to describe details directly or something? <<less

An amazing read, very unique and I find Harold/kazuki's handicap really entertaining lol. I dont think it's a harem situation novel which already makes it stand out from other reincarnation novels :P.

Highly recommended

This is an exceptional novel. It has one of the most interesting MCs out of all the novels I've read so far and it's come a long way from the beginning where I thought the MC would easily find a way to overcome his Speech Impediment.

This is so good! I have to say, the story is very interesting. Compare to female protagonist on any other romance novel, this one way better.

Not a wimpy, lazy, randomly OP, perverted MC! Hurrah! The story is also quite interesting. I'm only hoping that this also doesn't somehow end up as a full fighting LN. One of the very few JP LNs that I enjoy.

I saw some gripes in certain reviews that there was no explanation regarding why or how he got transmigrated into a game. From what I see in this kind of genre, it is either explained from the get-go that some god or higher being etc, is responsible, or it is so integral to the plot somehow, and it will fall into place at the end. I feel like it will be the latter, so I do not understand why we expect a completely linear story telling where everything needs to... more>> be laid out in chapter 1.
I am hoping that the ending will continue to justify my rating (and won't become a hot mess like a lot of such transmigration stories). But otherwise, I think the world building, characters, motivations, misunderstandings, and the plot itself very interesting. I find the story well written and well translated. One of the better ones out there, so if you like the genre, give it a go! <<less

One of my absolute favorite book so far, It's quite a romantic story where the protagonist acts as the villain with his overbearing attitude to push away people to keep them safe but fails in the end.

It's honestly hard to dislike the story itself, but reading it is somewhat frustating yet exciting.

Update is slow but each chapter is long so I'm one to anticipate the wait.

I'm just an amateur reader so for professional insights refer to others.

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 sh*te shimatta...', that's better though but... more>> I'd place this in second place undoubtly, this is really good.

Give it some time and you'll enjoy this, no matter what, keep reading you'll enjoy it at a later point in time. <<less

This novel has been one of the reasons why I check novelupdates daily. Although the reincarnated/transported to a game world story trope has been overdone more than a thanksgiving turkey, the story manages to hold its own because of how unique and fleshed out the characters are, the world building, and the pacing of the plot.

Harold does seem overpowered but the story has a way of making it seem like there is always a chance of failure or that Harold cannot truly win 100% without sacrifice which is something many... more>> authors of Mary Sue characters don't do as well as the author does. The other characters are also very nicely fleshed out with their own personalities and unique motives (very nicely shown through the well thought out Different POV chapters).

One thing many OP MC novels fail to do is also world build and even though the novel is written from Harold's POV, the author hits the nail on the head with how to world build. Many authors focus too much on the protagonist and forget about what happens around the protagonist however My Death Flags gives the reader just enough information to make it interesting and let you theorize what is happening in the world around Harold.

The pacing is also consistent throughout the novel with no major abrupt changes while still feeling like the story is progressing nicely. There are no major plot holes and everything is well thought out from the author's part right down to even the comedic parts of the novel.

Overall, one of my favorite japanese web novels which I would recommend to anyone. <<less

The story isn't bad but for some reason Author simply pushed MC to become the self-sacrificing tragic hero who doesn't mind being loathed, hated and at this point it seems he doesn't even mind dying any-more as long as the world is safe... which is the exact opposite of what the MC's plans are at the start of the series, which is to escape the fate of being killed because he took over a body of a villain that had the death flag.

Worse of all however is that MC can... more>> often easily accomplish everything he did, without reviving the wrong reputation for it but still, the author wants him to be the tragic hero so hey... here it is.

Adding to that however, by the end of the second volume, it's pretty much everyone loathes the MC but MC doesn't seem to care at all and has no reaction to it at all. I know that ignoring what people say about you, saves you a lot of trouble in life but generally, when entire world feels like spitting at the mere sight of you, it's not something a PERSON could ignore... but hey it's not like MC needs to be realistic does he.

In any case this major flaw of the story simply explodes at the start of the third volume and it really pushed me off. <<less

This is a good novel. You can see that the MC tried hard to stay alive and help the people he care about. He stranported to another world and turn out he be an evil character in the game he used to play. The romance development in this story are good and not rushing. The plot story are unpredictable and I dont feel bored to read this story again and again

Although it is said that Harold (MC) will help Ryner (protagonist of the game) you can think that he will admit defeat and things like that in front of Ryner for Ryner to be above him and so, like a true protagonist who will save the world. But he didn't, Harold is way stronger than Ryner and he doesn't want to be defeated but he cannot break the protagonist so he creates "inspiring situations" to motivate Ryner to be stronger. He still defeats Ryner easily.

He (Harold) is very smart, everyone... more>> has a big headache dealing with him and trying to avoid his schemes

I'm confused about why Harold himself can't face the "Main antagonist" of the story since he is way stronger than Ryner and has a lot of ways to be even stronger, plus the fact that he is very smart and he can use the game's knowledge to defeat his enemies.

The Female Lead is cute, Erika was suppossed to be one of Ryner's harem members (his party) and Harold knews that so he avoids her by all means and is very cold towards her, he truly crushes every "favoring points" possible and does whathever he can to draw hate. But some things happened plus misunderstandings and now she loves him the most and her "moves" are slow since she know Harold's personality. <<less

The story feels forced. The MC is changing history itself, but because he's alone, it doesn't feel real and he is afraid of changing it too much that the final boss would change course. The character is supposed to die at the end, but at present he has gained enough sympathy to not be killed. This novel is good, but I can't help feeling that the ending would be a mess.

Great plot, Good Read, Awesome MC.. But somewhat dull side characters.

I really like the premise and execution of the story although I find some stuff overly exaggerated. But story is just nice that it negate those negativeness.

Anyway on a More serious note though. This story could really use a nicer heroine. Heroine1 really doesn't deserve the MC, cause the current heroine for me was nothing but a natural story burden and a hindrance and cause of unnecessary suffering for the MC. Sorry for the heroine1 fans here. But I could... more>> only see that girl nothing but a hypocrite who harbor false affection given birth by guilt and misunderstanding about the MC. Seriously, every single time I read this girls POV, the only thing I could see was nothing but his desire for atonement and Selfish guilt towards the MC and it specially irritates me when he look at the MC with pity and sympathy despite not really having a clue to what the MC is currently being been through I dunno about others but what heroine1 is experiencing Could be anything but love and affection. (Could you have imaginge if heroine1 never learned about the MCs true self. I bet he was already scorning the MC while condeming him over nothing) If author could just make a sub for this heroine with a girl who could love the MC for who he was and what he does.. Loving his past and future unconditionally. Then this novel could have been a top notch novel. <<less

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.

Storytelling and/or translations are lacking. It is confusing sometimes (don't know who's talking to whom, fcking replies in brackets...) and a bit long winded, well that's expected of a JP novel. The idea is great but you don't get to really hear that unstoppable foul mouth - just saying bastards over and over doesn't cut it. Also if this is a western style novel, author should reaaaally stop with the sama, san, kun...
