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.

Watch out for the Onion-Cutting Ninjas

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

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

A decent realistic harem novel where not everyone in the harem is in for it or get along without complaint compared to many Japanese-based stories out there. The story is rather straightforward with some plot twist here and there about a young man growing up from rags to riches while involuntarily racking up harem members left and right along with dealing with the growing threat from his little sister. Don't get me wrong, my description may seem inadequate to the cocksuc- I mean, hardcore fan of this story, but the... more>> main reason as for why you should read it is a certain persona inside our MC that I won't say much because it would ruin the fun and why I rate this as 4 out of 5 since without that guy, I would rate this as 3 or worse 2 because of how plain it is.

"Boo hoo, you're just a hater who got a sh*t taste."

Nope, this novel is a standard fantasy about a young man manning up from being a *****. The drawing point is that the ***** got a sealed persona of a wild tiger. If you want to talk about taste, RotSH and Mushoku Tensei (Aside from THAT arc) are much better read, especially the latter where the harem situation is addressed and being one of the major plot point instead of being handwaved.

"Don't judge just because you're only reading a handful of volume, it gets better later on!"

Mate, I already read this till the end. The only thing that made me stick around is THAT persona, if it weren't for him, I'd ditch this a long time ago due to how torturous reading MC with wimpy personality for too many chapter until he manned up and become badass. And no, I don't like overconfident or brave or Rance-tier protagonist right from the start, they're just as bad, but being a wimp for sizable amount of the novel? Sorry, that won't draw many people in, especially early readers. <<less

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

This is the best harem novel. I don't even care if all of them don't get along, it's supposed to be like that. To that one reviewer who has read about 27 chapters, I don't usually like to call people out like that but this time I just have to. The one thing this novel is not is "basic" All your mention about 2d characters, it's just plain wrong. This novel has one of the most fleshed out harem characters. And the MC goes through a gradual process of becoming... more>> strong both in physical and in mental aspect. The story about ancestors is engaging and emotional. As well as the thing about devoted childhood friend and others their reason are far more twisted and complicated than you could imagine in just 2 volume of reading. <<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.

To see the ln version of this story is good. I hope that in this version the 100th floor dungeon would be clear and the goddess or something like that would have a role not just a joke at the end like the WN version.

The story is good in the comedy elements and drama but that would come in the later parts.

As some comments before "that" part of him was very attractive to read.
