I kinda like the novels with ability stealers but this one scores too high on the pe*vert schale.

MC spends 1/2 of his time doing pe*vert stuff like using wind spells to see undies or when he gets the curse magic, first spell he gets is conveniently the s*xual attraction curse and what is MC first reaction? Mixing it with water spells to make tent**les magic...

I can bare some stuff here and there but it’s so constant that the story is slow really really slow.

Plus fights are boring as hell... more>> and the author’s writing style is bad. If you like the genre go check “To deprive a deprived person” <<less

This work is disappointing on many different levels. The plot is almost nonexistent, and what is there is thrown into the readers' face out of nowhere. The objectives of the protagonist are not only simplistic and childish, but they are also counterproductive. Events do not unfold logically, but are instead staged by the author in an artificial manner to either needlessly benefit the protagonist or advance his harem; what type of s*avers would summon an unknown individual that they expect will have a powerful and unique ability, and not ens*ave... more>> said individual immediately? Especially when the act of ens*avement requires only a drop of blood and holds no repercussions for the s*aver.

The most disappointing aspect of this story, however, it the protagonist himself: A genius individual who has mastered virtually every martial art and sport, yet somehow lacks the discipline gained while or needed to master them in the first place. Instead he possesses the personality of an extreme pe*vert, but doesn't feel comfortable touching his s*ave harem for fear of knocking them up. Additionally, after 80 chapters the protagonist shows absolutely no character development. He gains numerous skills and abilities, which in turn should benefit his martial arts as he practices a style that supposedly adapts to any situation. When he faces an opponents however, rather than utilize a method derived from a combination of his old and new abilities, the author instead adds new aspects to his old abilities with no warning.

Being barraged by stones? The protagonist has mastered tennis and is able to return those stones with his sword, killing the enemies who threw them. Told a monster is best fought at range? He's mastered baseball and throws a stone at the monster, killing it in one hit.

It's as if the author has created a protagonist that is far smarter than the author, and as a result the author is inadequate to develop the character's abilities.

In short this story is poorly conceived, featuring little plot with no foundation and a broken protagonist that is beyond the abilities of the author to develop properly. If one wants to read a story featuring skill theft, a supporting s*ave harem, and NPC elements, look elsewhere. This story is towards the bottom of that particular barrel, and much better examples exist. <<less

The main character is a selfish a**hole, irredeemable bastard. He sow the seed of disaster, letting it grow bigger and refusing to confront the trouble by running away from the responsibility and after it finally blew up he just cruelly throw away his only family and decided well yeah let's f*ck my harem why should I care about my mentally damaged sister because what I did back then which resulted in her being like that, it's totally not my fault, here in another world I can escape from my responsibility... more>> and having girls loving me without any responsibility.

I was never being so digusted by a fictional characters, and this might be my first and last character I ever despise in my whole time enjoying fictions. It might be not the "character" which is at fault though, it's the author's deranged mindset. The author seemed to lack basic human empathy and his irresponsible mindset shown too much on his characters. <<less

The plot itself is a basic OP MC Isekai Harem story. That is why I picked it up and read it till where I did. If that is what you are looking for, however, due to the reasons mentioned below, as of the 31st of July 2017, (while 151 is the latest chapter listed here), I would not recommend starting to read this series right now, especially if you want a hassle-free reading experience.

I quite enjoyed this series, but as someone else has already mentioned, the translators are making... more>> chapters increasingly difficult and inconvenient to access. TYH has been forcing me to go through a timed ad page similar to ad fly, complete captchas, and go to their patreon page to read chapters 146-151. To read 152, you need to either pay $15 on patreon, or download a mobile app just to read their releases. The chapter was listed here on NU, but has been taken off since then, probably due to that reason. The story is good, but not good enough to warrant that much extra work, in my opinion. I personally have decided to put this series on hold until the TL either improves, or changes. <<less

This light novel doesn't lie on its premise, it is what it is, nothing more and nothing less. The other world setting, is just there for the sake of having girls for different types of fetishes and make the MC look OP. It doesn't try to have a pretense of a plot, and that is why we next know next to nothing about the MC. Like I said before it is what it is, pure self-indulgence and nothing more. The LN doesn't divulge anything about the MC until the narrator... more>> needs to give an explanation, about why he is so amazing at something. The MC is also honest, though generic but also decisive (no beta male here) and bland enough so self-insert. Overall, it is complete crap (it is incredible how issues this thing has), but each chapter is short enough to not become unbearable (sometimes). As a time waster for an everyday read it is short and easy to read, but if you read large chunks of this bullsh*t for a few hours it will become deadly for your brain cells. <<less

So much missing, too many switching translators.

... more>>

Not sure if the author noticed the loophole he created, but either he or the main character weren't smart enough to exploit it.

Whenever the MC defeated an enemy and looked at their defeated body, the author showed that the unique skill had been taken by the MC with demon eyes. This implies if he looked at bodies of defeated foes with multiple unique abilities, the ability he took would be missing while the other ones remained. The MC could then bring the body back to life with the <<soul container>> ability, then defeat them again. The MC already confirmed he could get abilities (magic and resistances) from defeating creatures he animated, so this strategy would work to harvest the remaining unique abilities from a foe with multiples.

the idea was interesting in all respects, but the writing is very bad in a sense that foreshadow is litterally just telling you what will happen later on in the novel without being mysterious. Characters are really easy and I'm guessing cause its supposed to be only about the main character. But plot if any is forced and rather than the main character going out and encountering it just so happens to be nearby. Not very good in any case I'd say if your reading it you should just take... more>> it as an example of what not to do if your thinking about writing your own story. <<less

I am not saying that this is the best story out there, but if you are interested with some mindless ecchi, harem, isekai, martial art story, I would recommened this story to you. Currently I stopped at ch 154 because there are other stuff I want read as well. But for those out there who are trying to continue to read the story, the link is here: http://narou-tl.

The translator is the same owner of Nepustation, but he opened a new non-user friendly site to continue his trnslations of the... more>> story, the site had already translated up to ch172 as of this post.

Hopefully this information can help people who are looking for updates of the new chapters of this story, because it took me weeks to even find out clues about his new site on his old ambigious site. <<less

I'm only on chapter 18, so it might change later on, but so far it's the same as most "summoned as OP character in a RPG-like world with s*aves".

What I mean by this is a MC that is OP for the sole reason of the story (here, it comes from "stealing" martial arts from our world before reincarnating/transmigrating). He is described as having mastered a lot of martial arts, and being the strongest in his martial art oriented family for generations, and yet he remains your standard japanese main character.

By... more>> this I mean virg*n, selfless and apologetic when saving a girl, completely clueless on how the world works, and that damn "I want to stay low profile" that's so ingrained in japanese society. So all in all, a forgettable main character that's going strait down the route of OP and s*ave harem.

Some of those novels at least try to redeem themselves with at least semi-interesting side characters and s*aves, but everyone so far is just depicted as a NPC, and his first s*ave is so one dimensional that there is a line strait up saying "The feelings of Spica for Yuuto changed from 【respect】 to 【worship】." in chapter 17.

The translation so far is fairly good despite being machine translation. It is clearly edited and proofread much more than most machine translations, I have yet to find places where I want to punch my screen for phrases that are not even close to grammatically correct.

I know it's not flawless, and if you search for inconsistencies in the translation, you'll find plenty because machine translation can only go so far, but at least it's mostly proper english phrasing, which is more that quite a lot of machine translations out there.

So bottom line is that the story is average at best, but the translation is above average, so if the theme is what you were looking for, go for it. <<less

The Main character is really very easy going in making his harem, up until now he has already seduced the 2 women he saw, by making them owe to him for rest of their life. I don’t know where he will stop like right now he bought a mansion which can easily occupy 100 plus peoples and really want to know what will happen next.

This novel is just empty in all regards. I am not sure why this is called ecci, I guess because of implications, but there is no ecci stuff there. Character interactions and development is non-existent and all characters aver extremely shallow. There are no relationship building or emotions. There is no tension. MC is just a h**ny dumb teen, who gets a bunch of "s*x s*aves", but does not touch them. Instead he uses tentacle magic he developed to service the gals. However there are barely anything written other than... more>> the fact that it happened.

The story did not make me rage quit and was not so s*upid that I wanted to quit half way throug, but I did skip a lot if s*upid interactions between characters. The authors tries to have funny moments and use them as a relationship device I guess, but he miserably fails at that. All parts that suppose to be funny either make you want to punch MC for his idiocy or they are just s*upid situations by themselves. This btw is one of the biggest problems with the story: MC does not have ambition (well, he wants to come back, but does not actively do anything that can help him do so). Stuff just happens as MC happen to be nearby.

So, bottom line this novel is super easy read that has nothing going for it. Bad characters, bad progress, bad romance, bad relationships. If you are 10 year old, you might like this.


Also the part with his sister is so s*upid... You can guess what happens just from the already translated chapters.


Also, Twilight Reverie summarized everything else nicely. <<less

First of all, I like this story. However, there are multiple problems with it. The attitude of the MC is happy go lucky which is fine, he is not dense and is the hero of girls. The problem is that the MC is perfect, what he lacks he gets in magical abilities. The characters are set in stone and are introduced as lovable but s*upid characters, in short, they lack depth. The chapters are very short and it made me wonder if this story was actually a draft or skeleton... more>> for a light novel.

There no next to no descriptions of the environment or characters. One of my main problems with this story is that it should basically be a fap story, and it is introduced in a way that the MC will at some point have s*x with his 's*aves' but the author is afraid of a R-18 rating. Wait what? The author made a s*xual harem story for kids? The translation is a bit below average, the overall translation is good and revised without any major error, though many of the sentenced seem kinda flat and dull. Might just be the author though. Overall I can't give it more than 2, 5 - 3. The story really seems to be the rough sketch of a normal ln. The story could be good but it really lacks flavor, it wins it's audience with a fast paced story and fan service. Btw it took me about an hour to read all the translated chapter... (114). This is a manga in text.. <<less

I would rate this zero stars or less if possible. The MC starts out as a great protagonist. But, the story goes downhill fast, because the protagonist has a major tentacle fetish.

The protagonist does not want to sleep with his harem, because he does not want a child. This ends up leading to a weird form of ntr. Which leads up to him having a tentacle monster created by his magic r*pe his entire harem and take away the v**ginity of all of his harem members.


At the part where this happened in the story, I instantly dropped it.

Sigh. I wanted to like this, I really wanted to like this.

There's no s*x in this story. It's the standard spineless JP male that's too afraid to have s*x with women even when he has ABSOLUTE CONTROL over them and up to the point I've read both of his two s*aves have said they will do it willingly. We've even seen the first s*ave think 'why won't he have s*x with me?' and she thinks there's something wrong with her because of it.

Disappointing, so, so disappointing.

This feels like it was... more>> written by a 12 year old. The MC is just good at everything. Throw rocks at him? No problem, he used to play tennis so he can swing his sword and hit the rocks back for 1 hit kills. There is nothing the MC can't do because whenever trouble arrives, surprise, he used to do [insert sport here] and so he can adapt and fight back. This has happened multiple times already before chapter 45.

The MC just had to fight a vampire but had all of his magic and skills taken away, then his sword broke and the reason he won? Because he trained some kind of super hero martial art called Destruction Fist that totally destroys a body.


It's honestly really shocking that someone would translate this over literally anything else. S*ave magic/illusions/mind control are my favourite thing, but we see literally none of it. Sure the magic exists but because the MC is the standard sissy JP protagonist, he never uses it to actually take control of his s*aves. It's honestly a wonder that Japan isn't a matriarchal society, the men are all effeminate manlets who dress up like girls in their spare time and even in their fantasies and wishfulfilment stories, they still can't bring themselves to man the f*ck up and take what they want- they have to write female characters who basically demand the MC take them as a s*ave because the MC is too much of a bit*h to take them on his own initiative.

I'm just fed up of Japanese novels. I can count the good ones I've read on one hand. The rest are all the same weak, goody-two-shoes MC who just has to help people and spread the 'joys' of modern morality. I read because I want to escape the bullsh*t of reality, I want a world where I can envision myself as the character who isn't constrained by the laws and social norms of society. I don't want to read this bullsh*t where the MC has unbelievable power but doesn't even use it for selfish reasons.

To the guy who voted this a 1 star and said the MC was an irredeemable as*hole and a bastard, f*ck you. I was looking forward to this because you said that and I was totally let down. Your review is inaccurate af and should be removed. <<less

It is indeed only subpar in terms of story telling skills. The author is not truly skillful in writing the plot, which makes it a little cliche. But that's alright, the concept is pretty interesting. It's still early to say whether this will have s*xual plot like Former Hero series or being subtle like Death March, but in anyway, if you like those two series, and also like these following series, you'll probably like this one too.

This is a nice story overall, and has quite interesting characters and abilities. But.... it's slowly getting out of hand, with the MC slowly turning this story into a borderline R18 story.

Even more so with the fake chapters, lol.


Well, it's enjoyable on the ecchi scale, so go for it if it's what you like. But the quality of the story drops slowly, so be warned.

We have story with just another reincarnated+harem+OP-MC theme.
The good is, no echi just like most of this kind of theme. And, I like it.
It's not that I don't like echi, but sometime, echi+harem, it'll be more like censored H. And, I don't like after some paragraphs to read fan service scene.

The plot is really cliché, someone getting transported in another world and gain a unique ability which makes him extra OP and creates his harem... The slight twist is that he's already OP in the other world as well because he's a genius martial artist, he's not one of those losers rejected by society who wants to make it up for his past mistakes (ex : arifureta, mushoku tensei, tensei shitara...). So the question of returning back to his world is asked quite naturally.

For now, we're not very deep into... more>> the story but it got me hooked, there are no dead parts. While being extremely predictable, it's also really entertaining. The set up makes it so that the hero has to understang the "settings", it's not quite clear how his abilities level up, etc... So we're discovering it with him and it's not an explanation bot-like situation likes in most novels of the same genre. If you like some OPness, then this novel is quite enjoyable. <<less
