After being reincarnated, Ars Louvent is supposed to live in a different world as a weak aristocrat.

Very very bland and boring. Especially the MC.

This novel is pretending to be a meritocracy but it's actually all about talents from birth. How tf does an experienced war veteran lose to a kid just because the kid has S rank talent? That negates decades of experience and effort. Like what?

Ugh. Also MC is horrible. So wimpy and naive. I can't believe how he managed to retain the loyalty of the retainer s as such a useless Lord.

I'm super dropping this.

The novel starts off decent with a MC with great appraisal skill yet he is extremely naive. He goes around telling everyone he meets about his skill and its effect. Any halfway decent enemy would kill him and try to take his talented subordinates for themselves.

The story leaves alot to be desired as the MC just reacts to things that happen alongside being a passive wimp that doesn't desire control. Ugh

Not sure why this has such a high rating at the moment. The premise has good potential, but all the characters and interactions are pretty flat. There's little to no emotion and all conflict gets solved basically within the same chapter. Here's a basic chapter outline IMO:
Spoiler
    1. MC sees talented person with a "downside" (different race, woman, etc)
    1. Other people say they aren't talented
    1. Talented person proves their talent somehow
    1. Other people: "O wow"
[collapse]

Gonna keep up with it for a while because the chapters are short, we'll see how it goes.

Great story, lots of potential and it’s not a light hearted story.

First arc involves the protagonist recruiting vassals with his cheat. Story is pretty dry here as how he get his vassals is pretty predictable. Falling to tropes and honestly pretty bland.

Second arc however changes drastically. After the death of __________, the story picks up fast and the first war takes place. There will be politics, skirmishes, war councils, and a cheat evolve.

The most disappointing thing which I have experienced about this novel so far is not the authors fault,... more>> but the translators. The translator has chosen to place an incredible amount of advertisements, which includes the standard banner type, the pop up ones that actually ruin the experience greatly, and the worse of all are the types that completely breaks out of browser and opens up a shopping app. Very very disappointing.

To any aspiring readers, be sure to use a desktop with a strict ad and script blocker. This translator calls themselves lazy but it seems greedy is more suitable. <<less

This story starts good and then just leaves so much to be desired then again it is pretty much the standard isekai. Through and through the start was nothing really special. Was just a bit glad the MC was not a born a genius able to do any and everything just trying but that quickly gets old. He is one to use the cliche power he was given decently but not overtly well honestly.

It just seems like a very light-hearted journey of playing pokemon capturing talented people. MC is very bland and apparently untalented other than his talent to find talented people. So yeah.

Also, the system in place is really vague like bravery and talent equal combat power? What? The 11-year-old slum girl can take down most of the soldiers we see early on. That and (so far) potentials have a max cap and just from reading it kinda rubs me the wrong way with the system that talent is the only real... more>> determining factor for a person and it gives me the feeling that any kind of combat or struggle will be boring with how it's made out that if numbers are bigger well too bad. <<less

This novel suffers most from one of the most key points in the story, which is, the appraisal skill. The story lacks depth because the appraisal skill doesn’t allow for individualism.

The story tells us that anyone with high Ambition is meant to be distrusted because they will betray the MC. Not that they ‘could’ do it, but that it’s ‘likely’ they will do it.

There is also the issue with how the appraisal values work and how the MC determines people’s worth (ergo, in this novel, if you aren’t talented like... more>> Steve Jobs/Napoleon/Alexander you’re not worth mentioning). Again, this limits any characters individualism and everything just comes down to the numbers. Which to me makes the novel boring and dry. <<less

It is a bit entertaining. Just don't go into this novel and hope for a master piece.

Story 3/5. It is simple. War is coming, and he is searching for OP people.

Characters 3/5. I could end up nitpicking all the time. Genre: Isekai/magic/ slice of life?

Translation 3 / 5. I can immediately see that there are errors here and there which needs fixing. The meaning is still there so it is not totally lost. However, many sentences are just weird. Weirdly structured.

It's an interesting idea, however, it's not written very well...

Actually, it's a bit early to tell how it turns out, but as it doesn't seem to be leaning towards being a harem, that's already a plus for me.

But, the execution is pretty bad. I'm not sure if this is due to the translator or author, but this is probably one of those that are better as a manga?

Basically this can be summed up to being a reskinned version of pokémon. All that matters in life is your talent and ability grade, expirience means nothing. Say you are a normal man with D class bravery, and you go through countless battles, surving each one, fighting tooth and nail, accruing expirience and skills to become a better warrior. You can can still get beaten by some 10 year old smuck with S class bravery who just held a sword today.

Imagine that? A D class war veteran, getting killed by... more>> an S class newbie.

But Rafael? What about raising your stats through hard work?

Nope, if you are D class you are hard capped at a certain number in terms of stats because your muscles does not become stronger through exercise anymore. And if you have reached your cap no matter how much you exert your body you wont get stronger anymore, no matter how many hours you study your intellect wont become higher.

This novel is trying to seem like meritocracy, but all that matters in life is talent from birth. No matter how hard you work you will never become better than what your ability class.

But that is only about the message, overall the MC is so wimpy and naive that its a miracle that his vassals has not been taken. I mean would you stay loyal to a guy who is not even fit to lead, if not for his cheat skill.

Now, how about the other characters? They are one-dimensional, and boring. They are akin to pokémon, after you get one better than the last the previous pokemon never gets any attention again.

And why are people who are oppresed the ones with talent (colored/women) the only ones with talent?

What about normal citizens? I mean how convinient is it that there are 5 S class characters in the MCs region?

PS. I recommed reading Overgeared, as it features a character with actual character development.

So basically:

According to this novel: hard work doesnt matter, if you arent blessed from birth you will never excel. <<less

Started up good with potential and then went flat.

He end up hunting for skill people to employ them and then author tried to write about their interactions and a whole arc on it. While this sounds great character development but the author is just really bad at writing character interactions.

Also the disgraced novel strategy chick character is hell boring. Apparently she's better than his current person he "collected" but like what's the point? There is no given reason why I should care for two people with similar skill.

It seems like... more>> the whole point of the story is going around collecting skillful people, build some interaction with them, and then forget about them and repeat this formula. <<less

I looks like it can have good world building and a bit different from other isekai harem web novels. It's still to0 early to know if it will stay good or not.

I will describe it in one word, meritocracy. It does not matter if you are a man or a woman, what matters are your actions and your ability. Something that if used in real life we ​​would be better than now.
