Ah mr. Lyle, you are one smooth nigga and you know it. Every moment you came, I always thought to myself, if you're the second most awesome character in the story, no one can be the first. From the start you appear, I know you're going to make the scenes totally epic just from being present.

Ancestors, you are a bunch of coolest dudes and you made the ride so far especially enjoyable. The last batch of scheming ancestors late in the story were especially enjoyable. My favorite so far was... more>> Brod Walt due to his tendency to resort to dirty tricks and especially bombing the hell out of everything.

Spoiler

His interactions with Mileia were especially gold, she's also one of the female cast I like the most.

[collapse]

As for the story, some of the reviews mention about something implied or dark political struggles but I really didn't get most of them. I came here and stayed for the comedy and I especially like how the Author execute such complex themes in a way that's pretty funny without making it look forced.

This was mainly a harem story and the girls, on the illustrations so far appear really cute and stunning. They also have actual quirks and personalities, but for those who joined later on, I didn't find them memorable. I think I like the girls who joined from Novem to Shannon (I remember Aria, Miranda and Poyopoyo, forgot her actual name and the glasses girl who act as the support). They're pretty likeable so far, but the main highlights for me were the interaction between Lyle and the ancestor.

As for Lyle, he started out pretty pathetic at first and honestly, I kind of dropped the novel for a while because of that. I could truly relate on how the Ancestors facepalmed at his actions, but I continued reading and noticed his growth to be a better person and as mr. Lyle appears, I knew I'm going to stick until the ending.

The story began with him losing against his sister Celes and his main goal is to become an adventurer strong enough and gather harem members to fight against her. There's a good explanation about it later in the story. The story had a concrete aim but the most enjoyable thing was the interaction between the characters. There were some battle scenes, war scenes but they're not the main focus iirc.

The novel had a lot of discussions and dialogue and the battles were mostly the implementation of their strategies. You knew they're going to win, most of the actual process were the preparation. It might be boring for some and I didn't always get what they're talking about, but so far, the talks were quite fun to read and it went in more detail, further than what isekai novels actually touch. I especially like the concept of growth, on how they made it sound natural without any game terms.

Overall, the main reason I read this was.

  1. mr. Lyle and comedic stuff
  2. The Ancestors, their pasts and the mind-opening discussions.
  3. Teasing tsundere Aria
  4. Shannon pranking Lyle.
  5. Spoiler

    Poyopoyo wanting to make babies with Lyle but after his son was born he sold him to a lolicon professor.

    [collapse]
  6. Lyle trolling a rich lady's parent.
  7. Lyle trolling an entire city for pranking him.
  8. Lyle being a genius at tower defense
  9. Brod Walt's gun propaganda and his EXPLOSION.
  10. The lores and the interesting legends that unfortunately didn't get explored further in the story.
  11. A lot of things more but I couldn't really remember it.
Spoiler

As I read through, there were still some mysteries in the story on who was whom's goddess descendants and the Ancients who build a kingdom in the outer space or something.

It wasn't really important though, because the Author had tied most of the loose ends in the story.

[collapse]

It was a lot of fun to read. Maybe not that easy to pick for some people due to the first volume Lyle not being that much of MC material, but once you get past that, it will only get better. The ending were also pretty nice so far.

Kudos again to mr. Lyle, you awesome mofo. <<less

This story is about Lyle Walts journey, His journey. Not your typical sword and magic story that focuses on OP power, destroying this and that, getting this and that. It's a story of how a Boy grows into a Man.

It's a great story, lacking in some aspects, but great story none the less.

If you read a few chapters and gave up on it, I suggest trying to push on. Lyle Walt from the start is truly cringey, Even his Ancestor doesn't like him from the beginning. (This is not... more>> a spoiler since that's literally the beginning)

Character Development is great. Not just the MC, but surrounding him, his comrade. They all grow up, their personality changes as the story goes on.

I put 4 star in, because the Romance aspect is really lacking, although some may be satisfied with it, but you can't deny it's really lacking. There were plenty of chances where the author could have built up the romance properly, but it just got buried by other events. He could've slowed it down a bit to build it properly, I guess he just didn't know how to write it out.
Spoiler

Also, because Shannon isn't #1

Great story, BUT it's lacking in depth relationship development in the end. And it ruined by 1 extra chapter "last day".

It was great, but after reading that I feel so disappointed. The story is supposed to tells about "PRESENT", and when it tries to tells about "FUTURE", everything falls apart.

It feels like everything was pointless.

... more>>
Spoiler

just remember when Lyle confess to Novem. He said "I DIDN'T CARE ABOUT FUTURE". Yet... That chapter... Ugh..... I feel so sad

[collapse]

I understand the reason is to be the base for the sequel Gaiden. But author DIDN'T have to put it as part of main story. It just have to end in the time MC deceased.

Seriously that chapter is absolutely unecessary <<less

The begging was good. Characters were developing fast. They were quite smart. Hero behavior was quite logical from perspective of his experience. But at some point their lost 80% of their intelligence and started doing completely illogical things. It looks like author wanted to ignite a bit main plot but there were no logical reasons for this. Such cases are usually fine but he put several completely illogical decisions in a row.

... more>>
Spoiler

1. They are staying in city were their archenemy is coming. They have their own transport. They do not need to go far. Just don't sit in enemy's nest. Main characters always were vigilant except these chapters.

2. Once they know that Cecil came THE Hero starts walking in streets. The Best person to gather information

3. There is No reasons at all to visit princess. It's stupiditly obvious moment made just to make them acquinted.

Ok lets stop on these examples. Cecil and harem are also become sick

4. Sesil has full control of people. But she still is trying to become a queen. Please tell me, which girl would like to sleep with Absolutely suppressed guy? Ofcourse smart and emitiemotyung girl

5. She is saying that she hates hero as her charm does not affect him. What about other people like princess?

And the last... List of cliche...

1. Overpowered unknown skill on Cecil side. BIG secret. You possibly will need to read till the end to get answer.

2. Nobody is diply interrogating hero's love about even if they know that she lied. Obviously lied

3. Miranda and November runs from the only party which can defend them

4. Hero wants to die without saving everyone. Even he knows that he can't do anything but he still want to die..

4. And the last drop - ancestors were just testing him while asking to leave Cecil... That was unexpected. Such level of cliche was just unpredictable! I couldn't believe that author could use it in this book :'- (

[collapse]

I believe that in next chapters behavior will become logical again. But after author prepared and feed to me such Big dish of rotten s**t... I just can't read it anymore <<less

Overall I think this story is just ok. While the plot itself is not bad and the translation is better than most there is the fact that this story is not very descriptive in setting. Although this might be the same for a lot of translated novels. Also there's the fact that i've read up till the 10th volume out of a total of 18 and I can honestly say that romance is not an important part of this story at all. While there is indeed a harem, the girls... more>> in it are in my opinion very underdeveloped. It might because there are too many heroines. In the 10 volumes I've read, that is around 2000 pages, there has been no romantic development and harem parts are off screened. So for anyone who doesn't like harems don't worry this is barely one. <<less
