The MC is the annoying type, he's super OP but so weak mentally.

When he was kid he made some promise with his childhood friend (Aria) that they will be together after that because she can use magic she goes with the hero party to deal with the demon lord and when she's back the MC found her kissing the hero. He run from home while crying leaving behind his little sister, and whats more annoying is that he leaves behind a letter for the b*tch (that he wish her happiness with the hero) and didn't bother to tell his sister.

Well after that he goes to the forest for 2 years and become OP, on the way back he will help a some elves and he will fall in love with one of them, he stayed together with them for some time finally he decided to confess but she turned him down and he started again running and crying for days like a little b*tch. After that the story goes like any others harem Japanese novel saving girls and they fall for him while still thinking about his childhood friend he even meet the elve girl for second time and she wanted to be with him of course our MC can't No.

To see the MC grow some balls you will need to wait until the last chapters when he will go to the king city were the hero party live, he will start searching for the childhood friend and when he find her she will turn him down for the second time telling him that promise they were only kids and that she fall for the hero (well I can understand her I mean between the cool hero who fight demons and save the world and a kid who knew nothing just sitting at home any girl will choose the hero) well now everyone knew what will happen next our MC shut himself inside his room for 5 days crying and regretting his useless past only after that he will mature a little and goes to apologize to his harem member after that some action will happen and the MC will show his strength, everyone will be shocked and he will look att his childhood friend with cold eyes that he no longer love her and bla bla bla

Imagine everything that is wrong with Japan's WN/LN industry.

Beta-cuck MC? Check.

Vapid and tiresome wish-fulfillment? Check.

Incredulous amounts of power creep? Check.

MC is a p**sy-slaying chick magnet despite doing nothing to deserve being so? Check.

Over-reliance on tired tropes and generalizations rather than actually putting thought and time into the world you're creating or the writing itself? Check.

Telling rather than showing? Check.

Phew lad.

sanjou! hisshou! shijou saikyou!

Yes! This is a story about a certain man who can defeat all monster with ONE PUNCH! he wear a cape in his back, he used to be a ordinary person, but after he train for some years he become too powerfull! His strory always full of gag but also include some epic action, well he destroy everything with onepunch tho

No! It's not about a certain baldman, but this is the story about a young man WITH HAIR, yes! He has hair, his name... more>> is WAZU, he is a young man who get betrayed by his first love, then he runaway to the wilderness to train (or to get lost?) Then after 2 years he become so powerfull that he always destroy monster with one punch (but he hasn't lost his hair tho)

This novel is really amazingly hilarius and balanced with epic scene too! Then why it get low rating? It was because the MC get NTRed in the first chapter! The MC also has a really weak mentality too! But it's all just for the comedy, So don't mind it too much~ and actually it's more realistic since the MC is not an Isekai character who have higher mental age than his body and have knowledge of modern society, But he's just a countryside BRAT that get dumped by his first love, and after his exile he didn't know anything about the outside world, so some missunderstanding is normal.

The story is actually pretty normal, but the adventure and world building is so epic! The pacing is perfect! The comedy is so hilarius! The action scane was amazing! And the romance is... How should I put it.. It's UNIQE? and the translation is so good too! Anyways it's a really addicting novel to read. If you like ONE PUNCH M*N, you'll absolutely love this! I even think this is the fantasy version of ONE PUNCH M*N, and Wazu is the reincarnation of S*itama in the other world but with hair! hahaha

Anyways! This is a MUST READ novel! And a really UNDERRATED hidden gem! <<less

Really poorly written and translated about a man that abandons his little sister after being heart broken by his childhood friend. He magically becomes insanely strong after a very short time because the story needed him to continue. I really regret reading this for as long as I did and the final straw was the main character's sister. Jesus Christ that entire thing is so awkward and corny even beyond the typical "MC goes around collecting a harem."

The fight scenes are so half assed which is fine if it's going... more>> the slice of life route but the MC never grows or changes. He's about as dumb as a bag of rocks and all women everywhere including deities, swoon at the sight of him treating them like a person. I hope you like the usual Japanese cliches of an as*xual overpowered yet somehow still a doormat of a main character who never learns or does anything with his harem! <<less

Mediocre OP MC setting, though I found the bit about the childhood friend to be somewhat funny (and their reunion would probably be the only thing I'd be able to look forward to reading in this manga). Overall, though, the writing/plot direction is just bad and makes the story a bit painful to read. The author changes situations to suit what he/she desires, rather than to flow and fit in with the rest of the story. The story is also just inconsistent as the author doesn't take the time to develop new character traits/personality changes, and just thrusts them into the story. Case in point:

MC trains an entire afternoon to hold back and fails repeatedly, literally blowing goblin heads into oblivion, only to barely succeed (and then fail again against the goblin king). But he's all of a sudden able to hold back perfectly the next day, able to knock the adventurers out without any mention of the slightest difficulty.


Then there's also the lack of consistency based on the entire reason he got so strong in the first place.

immediately after leaving the forest he lived in due to a broken heart, he falls in love with someone else without sparing a thought to the childhood friend until he was heartbroken again. Seeing as it hit him hard enough to have run from home, shouldn't there have been some hesitation?

Good story. Setting is interesting and kinda real, this is your normal young guy here, who suddenly got a lot of strength, not some cold-blooded and steel hearted person. Lots of people are saying, that protagonist is emotionally weak, but I don't think like this, his behaviour is nothing to be ashamed of, if you don't care at all, when you are dumped by a girl, that just shows that you don't really care about her either. And don't forget, our hero is just a boy, not some reincarnated person.... more>> You can even say, that he is emotionally strong, because he still isn't disappointed in girls after "incident" with his childhood friend and all "misunderstandings" with other girls, which happened later, and havent turned to the dark side. It's a bit annoying for me, how fast he falls in love with different girls during his journey, but its understandable from story viewing point, as he is now striving for friends and love, after spending 2 years in solitude. <<less

Nice settings, I feel refreshed after reading those few chapters. Unfortunately, they're very short. --


When Wazu (the main character) was still living in his hometown, he was in love with a childhood friend. This love was reciprocal and they promised themselves to get married when they’d become older. But as everything was going in that direction, the girl was proclaimed as the hero’s helper and she became part of his party (harem if I may say).

At first she told him that when she’d come back they’d get married, but when that moment arrived, he was shocked to see her kissing the hero in an alley. That act broke his heart and made him do the impossible; leave the town to live in [The Mountain]. This Mountain has some OP monsters with an extremely hard climate. When he first arrived he became lost and eventually decided to live there.
Two years passes and he has become (I think) the most OP being in the world. He was forged into a being surpassing S-rank monsters and above (which aren’t even classified).
The twist in this story is that the MC himself doesn’t know how dangerous the place he lived in was. He thinks the dragons are as weak as slimes, and he sees himself as a “villager” type of human. So the misunderstanding plays a huge role in this story. A bit like


Review :

The chapters are very short, the translation is good, the story itself is a generic, but I don’t consider it a problem. I see some potential and I actually wish to know more about that girl he loved and of course how he’ll be treated (as a super human being or a monster or worst, etc.).

The short chapters make it easier to read in my opinion, because I tend to just skip some passage when there’s too much info. The story may be predictable, the characters might need some depth, but I still like reading this novel.

In short, it’s an OP MC coming out of the most dangerous place in the world. He might be revered like a got or treated like a monster, we’ll see what the author has in mind while reading.



Misunderstanding + OP MC = Nice story
Translation: Good

I recommend it if you want a simple story with an OP MC, no god, no mission to accomplish. Just him being over powered thinking that he’s weaker than a slime while in reality he’s (maybe) the strongest being. A warning though, the story may have a slow pace since the MC is a bit dull.

Well... this is a fun story. Maybe not for you who like dark story that contains betrayal, murder, agony, torture... This is a simple story of a man who finally move on after the childhood friend that promise to marry him betray him and perhaps already make love with the hero.

This is a journey of a looser and becomes the hero of his own story. The MC is a looser at the beginning, and somehow he became OP MC. Even if he is too powerfull, he still have to... more>> face the childhood friend that betrays him.

Probably this based on the author personal experience. Dont get too serious about the story, in fact theres a lot of comedy in this story.

Well I too have a similar experience with the MC. But sadly, I didn't become OP. <<less

The premise felt really interesting. It's rare that we can see the moment of Hero's party (implied) triuphant return through the eyes of someone, who could only be considered a nameless and powerless peasant. Moreso that this peasant actually knew one of those party members before she became a priestess (or Holy Maiden or something, it's unimportant in the end). It could've been such an interesting story, be it focused on struggles on that powerless peasant to grow closer to such celebrity or just be involved in an aftermath of... more>> Hero's quest...


... But instead we get the tale of a dense whimp, who ran (and continued to run) away from his 'broken dreams' and somehow got OP in a process. Moreover, through cliche developements and misunderstandings, he somehow manages to get aquainted to a bunch of easily-impressed girls, who decided to form his personal harem without him even knowing about it. And now that harem tries to catch up to him, who constantly running somewhere...


This idiocy is just unbearable to read. Even my low standarts couldn't help me to enjoy this novel. The only redeeming features of this mindless story is the chatter of just-as-easily-impressed Goddesses. At least that moments helped me forget about unispiring 'everything else', at least for a few seconds. Otherwise, it's just not worth the time spent reading. <<less

Some reviews almost made me skip this novel, to those having the same doubts give it a chance. The MC behaves like an oversensitive teenager at the beginning but the story gets better with each passing chapter.

This novel is comedy so don't take everything at face value, POV chapters shed light to some characters strange actions effectively explaining most misunderstandings.

Light hearted WN if your looking for something more serious since it does have a betrayal tag this is definitely not the one. MC pretty much has a pure maiden's heart causing him to run at full sprint, which is incredibly fast since hes overpowered, if he feels the slightest amount of "misunderstanding". Its pretty funny imo if you liked Ore to Kawasu-san this would be right around your alley.

Sadly this one was written poorly compared to the revision of the actual book and manga. Only read a few chapters and couldn't continue on. Is like reading a rough draft or brainstorm of a writer. Things were missing all over. It's like writing a fight scene that starts and end abruptly without progression. Who was involved? What was involved? Where was it? What weapons were used? What skills? That was just an example on how half-ass it was written.

I recommend reading the manga instead. Ironically, it was has more... more>> detailed words which shouldn't be for a manga than the novel itself.

I suggest the translator drop this version and translate the official one. It doesn't do the story justice but then I haven't seen the official book either so I can't confirm it. However, the author stated that the manga is depicted from the revision of the WN into the official book. So there should be some hopes.... <<less

The MC is overpowered and seems to have a tendency to never find love due to his own... folly?

Regardless, it's a cute and harmless story and each chapter is short and relatively easy to read. Think of this like a palate cleansing sorbet you take inbetween those hardcore stories of danger, betrayal, and murder that you like to read so much :D

+ Acceptable as a Comedy Novel.

+ Initial Plot Concept is good that can hook you for anticipation but...

-... Unreasonable developments

... more>>

We got a mentally weak MC who decided to ran away from home after feeling heartbroken. The thing is, the destination where he afterwards settle in is off a mountain where very strong monsters reside and for some odd reason, he was oblivious with how dangerous that area is. However, in the end, he managed to adapt towards the environment up to the point that he got OP.

Can't you smell that? I can smell a lot of potentials. It could have go into many reasonable directions. The MC could have develop a new personality while residing in the mountain for an example. Or maybe at least developed a certain mindset due to experiencing hell in the mountain that would indeed made the novel much more interesting. I could go on but in the end the novel gloriously spit on all of those directions and instead choose the most unreasonable direction I could imagine.

For some unexplained reason, a particular Goddess suddenly started to sympathize him and decided to give him her blessing causing him to be OP. But honestly, WHY!? There are obviously a lot of people in that world who are experiencing more hell than him so why that f*ck did that unreasonable Goddess suddenly got sympathetic to something so trivial and decided to blessed him out of all people?

Oh.. but it get worse... because she is not the only Goddess that, for no valid reason, was captivated by the MC.


- Fails to at least become a good harem novel because most heroines, if not all, just blindly fell in love with him.


The f*cking Goddesses are good example. Honestly, I have much more trouble understanding them than those insane people from Dungeon Defense. There are also the princesses that fell in love with him without much sentiments. This could go on.


- Constantly recycling flag framework.


After somehow managing to read until his reunion with his childhood friend, I can already see the plot framework that the novel constantly recycle.

{Meet new heroine > Interact more > Direct or Indirect 'Confession' > Run Away (due to a misunderstanding) }

Which later on became...

{Meet new heroine > Interact more > Direct or Indirect 'Confession' > [Insert Variation for the Sake of Plot]}

And then...

{Interact with Wives | Fight with Wives | Solve Conflict with Wives}


- Sloppy world plot and progression. After His reunion with his childhood friend, the novel is basically dead.


Light Novel Version: Childhood Friend still loves him and became part of his harem.

Web Novel Version: Childhood Friend genuinely developed feelings toward the Hero which gave the MC a little character development as he moves on after finally confirming it.

As on others said, the MC is kinda mentally weak but hella strong, well it is just the beginning of the story so I'm hoping there will be improvements at that. and knowing he was just scarred from his experience with childhood friend so its not that questionable...

And also I really hope that Kiss that shared by the hero and childhood friend wasn't a misunderstanding if so its kinda ruins the whole plot thing, and I'm hoping that he will see his Childhood friend again being pregnant or with a... more>> child and see him how OP he is <<less

Starts pretty well actually

Yet in the middle to the newest chapter, the plot gets irritating

I honestly enjoyed this novel. Yep, "Enjoyed" since now I couldn't do so anymore.

For you guys who want to read, please take notice that this ln is only made for fun and by the whim of its author with no in depth stuff

It's an interesting story about how an ordinary person that became OP fares in a world where there are possibly 'Summoned Heroes From Another World'.

The novel alludes to the Hero that takes away Aria, his first love, being from another world (Japan). It can be seen later on in the book that there are more of either 'reincarnated' or 'summoned' people due to the appearance of 'Shampoo' and 'Soap'.

Moving onto the main character, Wazu, his reactions may seem to be that of an immature child, but that's because he is one. He's not 'reincarnated', nor is he 'summoned'. That is, he doesn't have 2 lifetimes of experience nor is he forced to mature quickly. It is normal for him to be depressed and run away from something that frightens or depresses him. Maybe not to an extent that he would run off to a mountain full of S-ranked monster, but it's a fantasy novel; it's probably the only way to explain his bullsh*t OP power that derives from goddesses.

His maturing through the novel can be relatable if we also lived in a fantasy world, but it isn't, to be honest.

However, what is relatable is how he can ponder on something and move on. Though it is a bad habit of his to not finish listening to a girl finish speaking after he confesses, it can be attributed to his trauma from Aria, who is taken away from the hero.

As of Chapter 98, we don't really see any mentions of Aria, except for when they meet at the guild. And even then, she hesitates to ask whether or not the MC is the same person she knows. In all honesty, I hope Wazu moves on from Aria and the girls who he likes after her meet up with him.

Why? Because it would be great to see misunderstandings clear up. Of course, the plot is sort-of built on misunderstandings and comedy ensues to it, but hey, all things have to end at some time. The girls are so in love with him that they would travel and follow his trail just in order to clear up misunderstandings and become his harem.

It's basically about our MC, Wazu, maturing after he gains a OP power. Comedy ensues due to hilarious misunderstandings. The dark part of the story is only a small part of the story.

This story is good to pass time. The MC become OP and now just wants to life his life while looking for love.

Until now, I didn't see anything that would make one drop this novel out of the blue (I know people may be scared of NTR, but I don't even know if that's true or not in this novel) and it's interresting on it's own way with the misunderstanding gags inside it.

For the plot, I can't say much. It look like a slice-of-life but without cooking descriptions for a... more>> whole paragraph, since the events happens in a fast pace and short chapthers. It may not be that "new plot" that you may want to read, but it's unique.

The characthers are all lovely (except the childhood friend, for what I know with the spoilers) and they will make you have a good time while reading it.

Overall: 10/10 - If you just want a story to pass time and to enjoy while doing it, then, I would reccomend it for you. <<less

hmm as of now (ch6) I feel that this will be of the kinda lighthearted web novel.

Though I was afraid to start reading at first because there was a Betrayal & Tragedy tags, it seems that "I" was the one that misunderstood it.. My guess is that those tags only relates to the prologue & doesn't (hopefully) in the future have any tear/rage inducing betrayal & tragedy... I think somehow it is misleading at this point in time as I have only read upto chp.6.. other stories have worse betrayal... more>> & tragedy plot yet they don't have those tags in NU like Arifureta though it has betrayal there is no tragedy tag & all though xianxia/xuanhua novels that had the MC turned into tr*sh, betrayed, killed & forced to reincarnate isn't that a tragedy?.. as much as I'd like to remove those tags in this web novel I would refrain myself and let others decide..

This has a good potential but the downside is that the chapters are too short.. & based on my experience with WN with short chapters somewhere along the line the story will go downhill as the story will become more fast-paced & lack substance (ex. Conquering Hero's Heroines, I Bought a Girl, Humans are the Strongest Race)...

As the chapters are short & as of now there are only 6 chapters translated I must say that it's still too early to give a proper review but I will still give this a 4/5.. I will probably give another review of this when there are around 20 chapters translated so I will put this in my reading list for now..


okay I couldn't resist reading some spoilers & I found out something that I will definitely not like in the later chapters so I would now stop reading this WN though if it's the LN version I would probably try to read it as its more acceptable for me but still the MC is still pretty much a meh throughout the story as so the spoilers say.. so for me the WN a 1/5 now.. <<less
