I honestly don't see why everyone praises this novel to death so much. If I had to describe this story in one word, it would be "Basic". The concept that revolves around the seven ancestors passing their knowlegde and skill on to the MC as the story progresses is interesting, however everything else about the story is so basic that I find it a real chore to read. Basic monsters; slimes and goblins that are no big deal unless in large numbers and of course orcs that are severely op... more>> as they usually are for some reason. Basic magic; fireball, *insert element here* bullet, earth spikes yada yada. Author couldn't even be bothered to throw in a short and sweet chant. Basic melee combat; dodge, block, hack, slash, parry. Basic asf 2D harem; Super devoted genius magician childhood friend, the one that wants to repay a dept with her body but not in that way ecchi blush, the sweet clumsy one that has a rough scary side when she's angry. Basic conflicts; bandit gang, some hotheaded idiot did some sh*t and now everyone's in danger. Basic adventure system, basic wanna save em all MC, basic basic basic. <<less

As an individual who's finished reading the Web Novel version, I'd definitely give this story 5 stars. Sevens is a story that excels at pacing and character development. While it may follow the standard harem trope as many other fantasy novels, the characters that you'll grow attached to aren't the various young maidens the main character will charm throughout his travels, but the seven middle-aged men who help guide and shape the protagonist into an amazingly deep character, while forging a strong bond of 'family'. You will cry for these... more>> old men.

The Light Novel version here changes events slightly so that various developments make more sense and the world and side characters are more fleshed out than in the vanilla version, so content wise this is definitely the one to read.

The only reason why I've given the Light Novel translation 4 stars though is due to the translation itself. I won't mince my words, Yorai-kun is the superior translator in comparison to bakapervert. Awkward grammar, punctuation mistakes, and inconsistency in translation (with names and such) litter this version. Don't get me wrong, its still a good book, but I recommend reading Yorai's WN translation first for the cleaner and easier session to first-time readers.

This series would be a perfect 5 stars if they got a proofreader or editor that was proficient in English to double check the grammar and such. <<less

Loved the web novel. Expect even more from the LN. One of the more realistic harem novels I read so far. Main characters starts out as a bit bland, but he grows a lot throughout the entire story. This is really a story of him growing as a person and becoming a true "Walt". The harem serves a purpose and they're not damsels in distress.

Mr. Lyle is best Lyle

Edit: so far v2 has changed greatly from the webnovel and I consider it an improvement for the most part.

One of the most enjoyable read. You might dislike Lyle (MC) at first, but you will surely come to love him as the story goes on. The story has a clear direction it is heading to, and not just daily life of OP-showing story like some of the fantasy novels. Most parts are very well-written in the WN and I think the LN version will be even better, so I strongly recommend you to read it.

The best novel out of all I have read and it is really nice

Web novel is finished already so anyone of you want to read can go to yoraikun website to read

Story may start out slow with main character being naive young man (there is a reason for that) and him slowly growing

... more>> Realistic harem (not even joking) and great comedy (yes I am looking at you Mr Lyle)

Most heroines have their own characters instead of just dolls

And if you like this novel, you can go read up another novel written by the same author called Dragoon which is another masterpiece

PS: Shannon best girl <<less

I've read the WN and it was an utter masterpiece, a rollercoaster of emotions. Don't be chased off by the slow start, it's like that for a reason. The dynamic between the ancestors and Lyle really makes the story as well, and by far Sevens is my favorite novel.

PS: I disagree, Aria is best girl.
