Oda Akira, a high school student who excels in erasing his presence, was summoned along with his classmates to another world.

In this world of sword and magic, Akira and his classmates were asked to become heroes and bring down the demon king.

Having a bad feeling about the king and the princess who asked them, Akira uses his special skills to sneak into the king’s library, in hopes of discovering the truth.

Whether to help or abandon his classmates who knew nothing, it all depended on Akira.

Nothing much to say that hasn't been said already. Pretty standard "dark"/"edgy" protagonist, kinda similar to Hajime from Arifureta. Pretty average but not a bad read if you've got nothing else going on..

As great as the summary is, the way the story is written and executed is done poorly, especially at where chapters start and end.

Like others said when writing their own reviews the author has great ideas but executes them poorly along with using generic cliches that you can see or just awkward cliches that are revealed poorly. Though I'd like to say it's world building is pretty okay along with the ideas that drive the story, it's second arc which I believe is the elf one, just seems weird and... more>> doesn't seem to flow well as the early chapters. It's Manga seems better but I guess you can say the reason why its Manga is doing better is due to it's art and how there isn't any long or awkward transitions or it's because it's still in it's 1st arc before the elves territory.

The story summary probably has more content than the first 30 chapters will.

Chapter Summary

Ch 1. The MC is summoned with his class. Time passed, 0 minutes.

... more>> Ch 2. The MC checks his status. Time passed, 3 minutes.

Chapters are extremely short and cut at awkward times. The first 2 chapters might be a page long together, and are both during the same scene. In fact, I expect this 1 scene will take 8 chapters to complete, where other stories would do it in 1. This is destroying the flow and cohesion of the story.

At present, this story is below average, but subdividing chapters will likely cause the author to repeat details and parts over and over again, and it's all but guarenteed to grow worse as time progresses. While "how trashy" this story ends up remains to be seen, this story will enevitably end up bad. <<less

Cliche angsty edgelord protagonist who has plot armor and is portrayed as smarter than everybody else in the novel. Except for the fact that, you know, the author has him go full retard whenever he wants the story to go in a certain direction.

"Would it be smart to kill this enemy who hates me and will probably continue acting the exact same way they have been so far?" - "Of course not! Then where would my ANGST go!" -

"I'm a full stealth character literally broken to the point that nobody... more>> can stop me (besides Mr cliche happy go lucky guy who is incredibly helpful and nice but somehow still works for the bad guys because you know that's so honorable and all that jazz), should I make use of it to defeat my enemies?" - "LOLNO let's turn off stealth and show them who I am and then taunt them and leave, THAT will make them stop being bad guys!" <<less

Yet another 'summoned to be a hero in another world with a twist' story

The Good:

  • The MC seems pretty sharp (though still cliche 'borderline amoral/selfish').
The BAD:

  • The prologue is pretty bad.
  • The pacing is pretty drag-ass
  • The 'villains' are conveniently overconfident (pathetic).

  • Nothing really.
Overall? Wait & see- nothing exceptional so far, but I'm not particularly encouraged yet.
Just as a side- note, there is a manga for this, and though only 2 chapters are out, it is paced differently (faster), and already beyond the prologue & 10 chapters of novel translated so far.

This novel is so cliche, I couldn't help but roll my eyes whenever the cliche scenes come up. And the pacing doesn't help this novel. It just makes everything so fricking bland. Avoid if you don't want to waste your time on something soooo... bland. But if you're into OP isekai protagonist with ability-devouring skill who goes on an adventure with a beautiful female companion, then this one is for you.

Why do almost all Japanese "summoned" stories always vomit out so many POVs that the reader forgets who the MC is by chapter 3? This one is the same. You get one chapter of the MC, then several others, then the "hero" (who sounds more like a jilted girlfriend than a so-called hero). It jumps around so much that I can't bring myself to care about any of the characters which is a shame, since the whole assassin thing could have been pretty cool. It's not a terrible story but... more>> there's nothing interesting or unique enough to make up for all those POVs and cliches. <<less

Well... pacing is ridiculous. The human relationships in this novel feel eh pretty rushed. No- very rushed.

The pacing us also draggy as some would say but at the same time the chapters are short so thats pretty forgiveable for me.

It just irks me about how everything feels so shallow.

Anyhoo this is an ok read just to pass the time I guess.

So I read until chapter 7 and for that reason I won't rate it.

I'm not sure if I will continue to read this one because the angst and edginess of the MC is so fvkin high. Its more edgy than kirito or even than Hajime of Arifureta. I don't know if the novel is really good or not but with a few chapters, I can already tell that the author of this novel is just a middle school in the middle of his chunni puberty when he started writing this.

The... more>> MC is self proclaimed clever, he likes to be isolated, he is dissing all his classmates, he have a job of assassin, and the most decent character is praising him and calling him mature unlikr his classmate who are just children pfft.

Well anyway, I can't take the cringe so I stopped at ch7 for the mean time. I mean I want to give it a chance I finished arifureta and it was enjoyable. I also tried othet edgy web novels so why not this. In the first place I tried reading this because of the manga. Even though the manga was edgy it's not as edgy as the web novel. <<less

When does it become interesting? There are many chapters that don't bring anything to the novel; little to no world-building, no character development, no revelation, no upgrades, just conversations, and no plot progression. MC becomes overly attached to Heroine, heroine is just as plain as she says MC is MC and he does MC things, its as boring romance as my ex. I am waiting to this novel get some progress...

I call this arifureta downgrade version. Sorry if im compared this to other novel but I want to express my feeling. Here some reason :

... more>>

- MC is not hero, while that one MC job is underwhelming, this MC job still fighter category

- Hero envies MC, and both MC only has one friend before isekai. In arifureta case the friend is girl, while in this world MC has gay friend

- Betrayed. While arifureta setting more cruel for it, in this world MC just framed kill commander which is not thar cruel.
- MC level up in dungeon and found first waifu inside. While arifureta forced to do so because survival, MC on this novel do because he want to do it. And yeah, both first heroine also god class magician!!
Its just endou go to isekai and got hajime plot armor

Story is about akira who has presence -1000 even before isekai got summoned to otherworld, just to used by the kingdom (probably as war power). Then MC with his presence got assasin job which undoubtly make him more powerful. And yeah, MC stats stronger than hero. Character, there's a lot cliche character as basic isekai character. However I just think author fail to introduce them better because on early arc stort just about MC lurking arround. Plot, somehow messed up tbh. The pace is weird, sometime fast, sometime dragged.. Author probably love give full detail about unnecessary things. World building? We dont have it yet, even its still vague about location. Overall you could enjoy this if you didnt think to much about this, as usual jp isekai like this. Also kudos to translator.
3.5/5 <<less

Well what can I say, this is extremely rough but you can definitely see what the author is going for. Cliches' for days and the handling of multiple POVs just serve to magnify the author's lack of skill. As usual it is for isekais, the ideas are good but the execution is lacking. However, I do enjoy it because the world building is amazingly decent and interesting. The writing looks like a summary rather than actual story writing. Its as if the author had a bunch of summarized notes and... more>> expanded on them a little. <<less

Interesting premise, blatant enough foreshadowing that we know something terrible is going to happen soon. Pretty typical at the moment, but has potential to go either way.
