Someday Will I Be The Greatest Alchemist?


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

Iruma Takumi, a 40-year old salary man, was dragged into a hero summoning just like in a template. What was his fate? The Goddess sent him and the heroes to the other world separately.

With the Goddess’ overprotective support, he landed in a different world looking handsome, rejuvenated, and quite different from a Japanese.

Although he wanted a slow life while working in the manufacturing trade, that was not permitted by the Goddess’ special body and abilities.

Would Takumi be able to live a peaceful life in a different world?

It started off quite good and I was hopeful for more crafting oriented story focusing on complex world mechanics and how to build things but it turned out quite generic in the end.

It's not a bad story but unfortunately it's not that good either and I'm finding hard to continue reading any more than I already have.

The world just lacks too much complexity and detail to keep me interested.

... more>>

One of my biggest issues is that the author gave up announcing skill level up or even showing any character stats past chapter 100

The MC has allmost reached the peak of his Blacksmith and Alchemist jobs and both hi Alchemy and Blacksmithing is max level so I was very interested what's next?

Master Blacksmiths? Godly Alchemist? What skills would he gain?

But instead the author stopped showing stats just shy of lvl 90 of blacksmithing and alchemy.


What I really wanted out of this story is a highly crafting and creation oriented story that made the process complex but satisfying this fails to deliver on that instead having it as a foot note like every other novel.

Creating things is hard and ripe with failure even in this world now add alchemy and magic and you're telling me everything can be done like a footnote? I call shenanigans there... it may simplify some aspects but any magic to do that should be complex itself. <<less

So far, as of chapter 4, I am questioning the skills of the writer already.

Minor Spoilers:

... more>>

The main character is taken to a new world ahead of the other summoned heroes and is given preferential treatment for reasons yet unknown. He then explores and eventually encounters a village where they are all incredibly accepting. This is the part where I question the skill of the author, many things are glossed over incredibly quickly in only 1 chapter, he meets the character Banga and has barely any conversation with him, he then proceeds to build a house with the help of the villagers and then because he has no furniture yet, he stays in Banga's house. The author then tells us that there is two others living in this house which are Banga's family, we do not even meet them yet. Yes, in one chapter, he meets the villagers, befriends them almost instantly and then proceeds to build a house before eventually living in Banga's. I feel that these villagers are way too trustworthy, especially as Martha, Banga's wife, is preparing his meals for him.

Also, the author ignores basic writing etiquette in the sense that he does not abide by 'Show not tell', something that I learnt in Primary school (UK). It is implied in the synopsis that he is handsome, so when it comes to showing this in the story we only get one piece of dialogue from some random character: "Oniichan is a handsome guy, isn’t he?", that is it.


Also this section of dialogue is just incredibly awkward, literally the first conversation they have is about the economics of the area:


As I was talking to myself, a man in the prime of his life wearing a fur vest started talking to me.

「Yes, I left my hometown after I came of age, and I collect raw materials as I travel. Also, my name is Takumi.」

「Wow, Takumi, huh. That’s amazing for someone still so young. I am a hunter in this village, Banga[2]. Even so, collecting raw materials huh, this area is abundant in raw materials used as ingredients for medicine. Additionally, there is an ore vein near here so this is a paradise for those with production Jobs. Well, being so far in the out still has its flaws at times though.」

If there are a lot of materials here, then staying for a little while to temper the skills of the production jobs I’m aiming for would be good.


So far I have given this 3 stars as it is only the start, I will continue with this novel as long as I can before I tear out my beard like most bearded cultivators in cultivation novels when they see something that defies common sense. <<less

This story follows the template to the extreme, with absolutely no deviation. Adventurer's Guild, slaves, levels, five page status screens by chapter five, strongest in the world by chapter ten, able to produce infinite diamonds by chapter 30. Pass.

So far after 8 chapters, I am thinking that even with the god blessing the skill learning and increases are too fast. It seems like he will go beyond OP and into godmode. Maybe the Kami-sama is looking for a husband actually??

I rate it as such:


... more>> 5stars = Awesome ; 4stars = Good ; 3stars = Okay ; 2stars = Meh ; 1star = GodHelpUsAll

I put the story just above halfway of 3stars as at least it isn't a regular "Hero" story and I liked the Goddess conversation. The rating may rise or fall in the future.


5stars = Awesome ; 4stars = Good ; 3stars = Okay ; 2stars = Meh ; 1star = GodHelpUsAll

I rate the crafting at the low end of 2 stars as it seems this character has learned all about crafting from anime, manga, and video games. My issue with this concept is that unless you actually do it yourself by hand for a while you will not learn the nuances and though you may make a product that Looks the same, its functionality should be horrible and the items should break after a few uses.

Overall score is currently just barely at 3 stars. <<less

As far as I read now I got to compliment the translator for the regular update.

I enjoy this novel. It's kinda light but it has standard. (Which probably my bias since I like light stories that does not too lore heavy)

The content of this novel easily divided into 4 type : adventure, crafting, other person POV, and slice of life.

The fight are usually as a reason so that the MC can get a certain ingredient and that's all to it right now.

It might seem like a normal isekai novel at first, but it's surprisingly entertaining and the translator is top notch. I personally love this novel and it's in the top ten of the novels I read as soon as an update comes out. But any novel euricette translates is worth reading anyhow, one of the best out there.

A cheat protagonist isekai, crafter wannabe edition. It's not that bad, just very average in a very competitive genre, with nothing that would make it stand out above the rest. A lot of tropes used in this novel are just done to death already.

If I had started reading it a year ago or more I'd had probably rated it at 4 stars, but by now I've just read too many isekai's, so unless you surprise me it's 3 stars.

Added "I’ve Became Able to Do Anything with My Growth Cheat, but... more>> I Can’t Seem to Get out of Being Jobless" to recommended - it's very similar in terms of tropes used, but since it's an actual adventure story with much more chapters instead of (somewhat adventurous) hedge crafter story it's a much better read, in my opinion. <<less

Pace too slow. Got really bored by the plots. The main character and the otherworld setting are far too ordinary.

Self proclaimed production class MC lol. Interesting to pick a production class on an isekai summoning. I like the flow and the supporting characters. I wish it had more other peoples POV chapters occasionally though. Bookmarked this one for sure.

Seems like a pretty standard story so far. Keep on looking if your after a well written masterpiece, but for what it is I find myself enjoying it. The pacing is definitely a bit off and the crafting part seems to come to him waaaaaaay to easy. There should be more struggle and trial and error in a crafting based story at least in my opinion. If you can get over those two issues though it's worth a quick read.

The story's pacing is weird. It sometimes feels slow, sometimes it's fast. Everything is also very convenient. Like, I know there are plot armours and such (him being liked by the goddess a lot) but he's being fed everything like he's a 1 year old child.

At first I thought that MC is Weak. But I was mistaken. I mean wich alchemist would be physically strong? After all, the title of this novel says as though the MC is only a great alchemist. But he has knowledge about blacksmith, enchanting. Hes good at close combat and also have all elemental affinity in magic. This thing I didnt expect from a trashy title. I think the title and synopsis doesn't show the power of MC.
