S*ave Harem in the Labyrinth of the Other World (LN)

Description

Links are NOT allowed. Format your description nicely so people can easily read them. Please use proper spacing and paragraphs.

A man was about to commit su*cide and decided to search for a way to die on the internet, but then he found an odd site that asked a lot of questions and had a point based system that allows you to create skills for a character. He took interest in it, and when he was done setting his character, he was asked, “You will now be transported to a world with the settings you chose. Coming back is not possible. Do you still accept?” Without thinking much of it, he pressed YES and found himself in another world with the skills he chose to have.

I am a fan of this story, having read the WN, Manga, and Anime before the LN... but to enjoy it you should be willing to skip many paragraphs of repetition.

In a battle with a lvl 1 tree, the author fully describes every dodge, duck, dive, and weave, and the thoughts and philosophies the character has about those actions. But then the author fully describes it again for the next 100 times the character fights a lvl 1 tree.

Also, for a "sexy" book, the amount the s*x scenes are skipped... more>> is wild. You won't even be able to tell he has slept with a harem member for the first time until many chapters later when it's vaguely implied. <<less

This review is based more so on the WN.

This novel is interesting at first. However, as the story progresses, it becomes exceedingly repetitive. His s*ave harem ultimately consists of one dimensional characters who literally repeats the same lines and ideas over and over again. As you keep on reading, you really start to see the patterns. Dungeon, bath, eat, s*x, and repeat ad nauseam. There are some story arcs thrown in here and there to change things up or when new party members are recruited, but much of the story... more>> is slice of life filler, which wouldn't be a problem if it weren't for the characters themselves being, again, bland and one dimensional.

Brief spoiler discussion about his s*ave harem.

Spoiler

s*ave 1: She's just a yes man and she'll always say things like, "Of course the Master is correct, " every opportunity she gets.

s*ave 2: She's alright.

s*ave 3: She literally only cares about fish. She only talks about fish. She only thinks about fish. She works for fish. She lives for fish. She dies for fish.

s*ave 4: She's kind of an easy going air head. Not very interesting.

s*ave 5: She's a s*ave but wants to go into politics. She literally keeps on bringing up how she wants to enter the political scene ALL THE TIME.

[collapse]

Basically, all these characters are reduced to their fundamental tropes and aren't anything more than that for the most part and it gets old. Fast. That said, it's still a fun read for a while.

Read it. Have your fun with it. Move on. <<less

This is a nice story. I've read Web novel and it had everything you would expect - plot, a bit of character development, MC who is more powerful than anyone but not really OP (good team can kill him), some maturity in side characters. That's why you are probably reading such story. Somebody might complain about s*x and s*aves - but for me it's reality. Wouldn't you do the same if you could? Somebody might complain that killing was to easy for him - in my life I've kiiled... more>> several animals because of different reasons and I feeled nothing. So for me it's way more believable than guys who can't finish mass mu*derer.

It's not a perfect story, it has its own uniqueness but it's not SOE or Overlord <<less

The title says s*ave Harem so dont come here to be all high and mighty about how wish fulfilly it is, its a good novel to pass time being entertained about exploration and brief s*x scenes that decrease as time goes on

its like watching a good streamer playing an rpg, entertaining for what it is even if a little grindy sometimes, and its notably improved from the WN as there are deeper descriptions to emotions, situations and places

I regret reading this shit. The manga was ok and I thought the novel gonna be ok too but I was wrong, this is the most useless thing I ever read, I rather read a phone manual than this shit.

This novel has no story at all. There is no goal or any other kind of thing that makes me interested in it. It's just a wall of text nothing else, just a goddamn wall of text, they have 10 pages worth of useless stuff about him finding a c*ckroach and... more>> how he whines about it.

This novel is about a whining wuss of an MC who does nothing but goes to Labyrinth every day and then goes to town to sell the drops, nothing more nothing less. And when he is low on MP he constantly has anxiety about whether his s*aves love him or if are they going to stab him in the back. When he comes in contact with males he constantly worries that this makes his s*ave to NTR him. Don't forget how cheap he is when it comes to spending money when he is already earning tens of thousands. And how he explains the same thing again and again and again and again.

The manga just makes this piece of sh*t readable. The only saving grace is the manga has really good spicy scenes and those are the only thing making anyone read it, if you're thinking what about the novel? No, all those scenes are compressed to 2 lines like "We went to bath and had some fun in the bedroom" That's all!!! All those 2 chapter scenes are compressed to that barely 2 lines. And the private talk between Roxanne and Sherry is nowhere to be seen, this whole goddamn novel is just one big monologue of an insecure paranoia-ridden man.

It's also my fault for not checking the novel update reviews. Overall like I said above I rather read a phone manual. <<less

To all whiners that complain about this story being to immoral - this story has "SL*VE HAREM" in it's name! What were you expecting?

Also to those that complain how the story is slowpaced and doesn't have a lot of action - This is how a slice of life fantasy story should be - if you ever played DnD or any other tabletop rpg that is not only about fights but about actual role playing you would understand this feeling.

In short if you are a fan of "SAO" or some "I... more>> have reincarnated into an op super-cool-looking dude/thing and I am kicking everyones' asses all around me like nothing" - you probably better ignore this one, it will disapoint you as ther aactually is not that much action and most of it is rather grindy. If you're a fan of worldbuilding, interesting charecters and watching a realistic person living in a fantasy game - this one is just for you! <<less

Just read the manga, it's better.

Volume 1 is the best, since he has a goal to work towards and we get to see the interesting world from his eyes.

Volume 2 is rather meh with some nice moments.

... more>> Volume 3 is a HUGE disappointment. At this point I would have expected at least 2 other members but the 2nd girl only really starts being part of the harem in the next volume.

In that expect at least the manga is much better, since we get the visual enjoyment of seeing Roxanne. The H-Scenes are especially very well done by the mangaka. <<less

Just about ready to drop this, the basic story is alright but it's ruined by the MC's ENDLESS WISHY WASHY INNER MONOLOGUES! Most of each chapter is nothing more then this idiot overexplaining every little decision, going round and round with the same crap that he went round and round with several chapters ago.

Chapter 1... OMG, I can't have anyone find out anything about me!!!

Chapter 4... OMG, I can't have any body find out anything so I can't do this or that or that either!!

And taking half a chapter just... more>> to whine about how intimidated he is by some male s*aves....

Just read the manga, at least it gets rid of most of this s*upid crap. <<less

Compared to the web novel, the light novel version of the MC behaves more like a typical isekai protagonist — unwarranted confidence and arrogance, and casually dismissive of danger. As much as I disliked the overblown paranoia of the web novel MC, the light novel MC bugs me to a similar level, just in a different way. Given a choice, I'd prefer the paranoia, because it fits better with how his original character is described, and at least provided an interesting flaw.

The light novel's editing is mostly better than the... more>> web novel, but there are a number of glaring errors that keep showing up that contradict prior text, or are just flat out wrong. They don't really disrupt the story's coherence, but they do stand out pretty badly. I'm not sure if these are errors on the translator's part, or in the original books.

Examples:

Spoiler

When he fights the first group of bandits, in the WN he kills all of them, while in the LN he explicitly does not. However when he contemplates some of the bandits chasing after him in town, he notes that that shouldn't happen because he killed all of them, in both the WN and the LN.

When he sells the weapons to the merchant when he first arrives in town, in the WN he keeps the saber because of its higher quality (which the merchant doesn't recognize), while in the LN he explicitly does not. However later on, in both the WN and the LN, he ends up wearing the saber because (he notes) he did not sell it to the merchant.

[collapse]

On characters:

Later in the WN, when he has the full party, the author becomes awful at maintaining characterization. They have token lines they repeat because he can't be bothered to show how they interact with events, but doesn't want to entirely forget that they exist. The exception is Sherry, the intelligence agent of the group, who provides exposition dumps for the MC.

That was also the period where the author basically abandoned the story, releasing like 12 chapters in 5 years (compared to 200 in the prior couple years). He may have signed the deal for the light novel around then, but it gives the impression that he has no plans for plot past what the current WN story has reached, which is a shame. I can only hope that the editor for the LN pushed him to work more on the vapid characterization parts, to help round the characters out. We'll see once I get further into the LN series.

On mechanics:

Spoiler

Based on my knowledge of the WN, I'd want to correct danglinhson and cbrtlsseca on bonus points: MC has 99 points + (the level of his primary job - 1). He does get extra points for leveling his primary job, but he does not get extra points for any additional jobs he has set.

As for his leveling strategy: While I would certainly do things differently, his choices are not actually bad. Durandal improves his leveling speed more than boosting XP gain while using a more mundane weapon would (see: the slow rabbit in the woods outside the first village), while also aiding survivability (HP drain) and sustainability (MP drain). When optimizing for XP per unit time, it's an excellent choice in the early stages.

[collapse]

I think the biggest weakness of the mechanical system is that it bottlenecks on the MC, but he's not so overpowered that he can ignore the growth of his s*aves. They need to improve, and at a vastly accelerated pace, if they're to be useful for a more advanced plot progression. If he doesn't unlock the bonus point system for them (both for extra jobs and accelerated XP gain), the entire plot runs out of steam. <<less

Slow. Insufferably slow.

Nearly EVERYTHING is repeated several times. "I wonder if I shoud go to X to do Y?" - " A: Hey guys, should I go to X to do Y?" - "B: I'm not sure if you should to go to X to do Y" - "C: They always do Y in X, you should totally go!" - "B: Oh, I didn't know that they always do Y in X! We should go there!" - "A: alright, we'll go there tomorrow." - "Next day we went to X... more>> to do Y, because you should got ot X to do Y".

Looks like a joke? But that's the storytelling in this novel. It's on volume 6 and MC still narrates everything about every battle just as he did in the first volume. MC earns money by dozens of thousands and still constantly overthinks about spending 100 extra coins on something.

The most important thing about story is going to labyrinths to restore mp with "Mana absorption". Every single travel/action is padded by describing stopping by to do that.

And then there is storyline itself. Major arc in volume 5 is buying some mirrors. There will be adventure? Conflicts? Characters? Events? Nope, half of volume of going to a city that makes mirrors to buy mirrors and deliver them to the buyer. With a bit of lore thrown in to be repeated endlessly.

By the time I caught up with translation I was skipping several paragraphs of text without missing anything new. I'm inclined to abandon it and never return. <<less

You might expect that there are many s*x scenes or interesting battles, or maybe there is even a plot (!!).

No.

There are 2 dungeons and 4 types of mobs the protagonist is slicing during the first 3 volumes. s*x scenes start and end with touching b**bs, and in the middle... there is no middle.

... more>> I tried to read this novel because manga is so awesome. Unfortunately.

Plot-wise. Terminal s*upidity. Why the hell he digs the labyrinth? He could level up there once per week and live a life of pleasure somewhere on islands thanks to his teleportation skill. But no, he seems finds pleasure in being confined underground from morning till evening and also dragging the girl with him. Why. It is not like he has to level up to save the world. And if he can earn more money than working in the office why not spend them lavishly? He works like a s*ave and lives in poverty. He didn't even go to a restaurant with the girl. So sad.

Why did he even have to isekai just to become a digger? Where is all the fun? <<less

The beginning of this novel feels like an inferior version of the Jobless Growth Cheat novel. The number of parallels in the early chapter are almost disturbing. I mean, when both protagonists end up getting pulled into a s*ave trader as one of the first things they do when they get to the first city and are given a five-day time limit before the resident canine-girl s*ave gets sold off to someone less scrupulous so they go into a dungeon and kill a criminal to deal with the problem, I... more>> end up feeling like someone copied someone else's homework. Not to mention the combination of "exp boost" and "less required exp" to level and the fact that he gets multiple simultaneous classes which was the entire point of Jobless Growth Cheat.

But why do I say this is inferior? In this novel, in terms of character, the s*ave is purchased solely because the MC wants a f*ck buddy and does nothing to actually win her over as a person before pushing his desires on her. In terms of mechanics, the list of abilities this guy gets with his bonus points appears completely arbitrary so we never know what he has access to until he randomly says something like "oh, by the way, I have a Warp spell in my list" and literally pulls something new out of his ass which is a recipe for deus ex machina if I've ever seen one. He doesn't even experiment with his powers to any believable extent; you're telling me that a guy perfectly fine with trying out the random copper sword he picked up off a bandit is completely unwilling to try out any of the cheaper bonus weapons when the weaponry bonus is taking up over half of his BP allotment? Playing around with that and figuring out the minimum he could get away with should've been basically the first thing he did if he's trying to hide his abilities while still getting use out of them. <<less

This story is pretty much a hit or a miss for most people. It is pretty old and one of the stories that made s*ave harems + beastwomen popular in these kind of stories. The story has little to no direction or overreaching plot outside of being a powerfulfillment story where the MC is pretty OP from the start and just grows stronger while building his harem. It really shows at times with how the author is seemingly just pulling out filler chapters after filler chapters and trying to drag... more>> out the word count as much as possible by writing about the same stuff over and over again at times or making the MC super indecisive which leads to little to no progress but a lot of empty chapters.

Most of it even plays out as if your reading the diary of a person grinding out lvls and gears in an old RPG game with some eroge elements. Even though the story is heavily focused around the harem and should have some romance elements because of it, it pretty much boils down to the MC acting like their his companions and not s*aves so their over the moon in love with him simply because their allowed to sit at the same table as him and eat. Which would make sort of sense if the girls were treated badly or had horrible pasts but instead they all have nice pasts and mostly became s*aves because their families needed money but in this world s*aves are treated nicely, educated and protected, for the most part, before being sold and they even have some protection after being sold so a lot of the reason for them being crazy about the MC is mostly confusing.

So pretty much if you like reading a story where the MC + harem is steadily growing stronger with little to no plot, drive or actual interaction between characters then this might be something to read. I'd probably rate this as a 2 or 3 but because it's such an old novel in the genre I'll give it a 4. <<less

I could be wrong though, but I'm fine with it long as I'm aware that this might not be as the author intended.

I'm still a little puzzled after reading until now (v2c4 part14) about the specific details of the "Character Reset". If possible, please correct me if I'm wrong.

as for I've read so far:

    1. The character originally got 99 bonus points to allocate for extra perks, like skills, weapons/armors etc...
    1. The character gain 1 bonus point each job level up. (calculated as bonus of the specific job.)
    1. The reset does not cost bonus point. (since he resetted too many times in just 2 volumes)
    1. The total points the character could allocate consists of 99 points + the total bonus points of the jobs he equipped (so if he has 4 jobs available and he could only equip 3, he can only distribute the bonus points of those 3 jobs.)
    1. He could allocate the jobs of party members in the team window, but not their points.
The below is my spoiler ramblings about the MC

Spoiler

To tell the truth, it's not like I hate his careful advance or something, but I think he's wasting his startup phrase with that overpowered Durandal.

After getting the first s*ave, he should've removed Durandal and use all that points to beef up his xp gain% and xp requirement down% to the max. It would be easier to train how to fight with those lv1 monsters like everyone else do, while leveling like mad, than just 1-shot everything and gain nothing other than the awe of the s*ave. He didn't notice that the xp is also one kind of resource, and since he has to split them between 3 (starting) to 6 (manga newest chap) jobs, that would means he need 6 times the common amount of xp to level up at a common rate. He focused on the blacksmith too early, while it would have be better for his growth to focus on leveling the jobs until they all reach an adequate amount of levels first... and learn how to fight effectively like the locals do.

In the end, that Durandal is deadly only in the hands of an veteran, not in the hands of a noob who almost got killed by a bunch of lv1 mobs.

Sure he switched to magic later on, but he still kept Durandal on his waist just to replenish mana... what a joke.

This story is incredibly slow. The author spends way too long explaining and re-explaoning the MC's "bonus points" system. There's chapter after chapter of him facing low-level enemies, adjusting his build again and again, explaining things in minute and boring detail. I'm in volume 3 and the author has only introduced two characters, the MC and his first s*ave.

The major problem here is the unlikeable main character. His dubious morals and innermonologs only reveals that he is self centered, clueless and suspiciouness. It would be realist some of those characteristics florish in his inner monologues, but it just pass out as a boring dude and egocentrical to a great degree that rarely develops or get better, while the problem is the world and not him. A slow moving story is not a problem per se, but the MC stales the reading for me.

To danglinhson:

The 99 points I believe are not part of the leveling system. When he does a reset he gets all 99 points back, he has to spend 1 point for the next reset so he has 98 points to distribute again. Leveling doesn't give him any more points to use. If he had that could easily hold a staff and Durandahl and still get the bonus XP, Magic for crystal, and multiple jobs.

I like the story, but the pace it is moving is getting to brutally slow. I since... more>> he bought Roxanne the whole story has been Wake up, Labyrinth, sell stuff, repeat. The only thing that happened since he bought Roxanne is the one attack on the s*ave trader. Looking at almost a full LN and a half of no progression.

Also I hope author starts paying attention to Roxanne's leveling. I don't know why he hasn't worked with her at all to help her level and get stronger. If he wants to be safe making sure she is getting stronger as well and helping her would be the smart thing to do. <<less
