Souen no Historia


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

Asakura Souji fell that day. Souji was an ordinary high school student. He was average in everything and his only skill was housework. One day, on the school’s rooftop, he tried to save a girl, a complete stranger. He protected her with his body and died. Or so he thought. Now he had been reincarnated as a baby into what seems to be a fantasy world and now it seems that he’s going to be a butler.

Note : the author stopped updating the web novel, and the light novel focus on a different character.

I find this WN quite interesting cause of it's rare plot and MC. The plot which he got reincarnated is quite cliché indeed, no need to tell me that, but the plot which his friends follow him (accidentally or not) to another world is quite rare, not to mention having their own side chapters on finding the MC.
It's like a 2 in 1 WN

Some of the chapters contain paragraphs/sentences which I'm not particularly interested in, so I ussualy skip it (I'm lazy, don't hate) and I just like... more>> a non-naive and logical MC (NOT LIKE HAYATE) I also prefer the "harem" here over the one at Hayate the combat Butler, cause it has more a more deep feel into it or something.

(I'm not hating over the other contender, it's just that I prefer this one a lot more)

But that cliffhanger makes me want to hang myself on a cliff. (Ma' right?)

Are they still translating it or naaah? If you know where I can find the upcoming translated chapters of this WN, please send me the link down below. <<less

It's a generic reincarnated template with super butler theme like Hayate combat butler series (but reincarnated). It's really really cliche that I'm anguished on reading it while waiting for something cool to happen because of the reincarnated theme, but nothing special happened in a dozen chapters or so.

It was quite interesting for me as this was one of the few novels I started reading even before I knew NU.

Too bad it was dropped so I wouldn't suggest reading it as you would probably not find anything interesting as by the end of the translation only then the story feels like the plot has started..

While it has similarities reminiscent of Hayate Combat Butler, it is overall a much better story... but that is not saying much really. It is pretty bland after the first ten or so chapters the MC isn't bad but so far nothing really happens in any major capacity. It is basically a slice of life with an op as hell butler as an MC and an ojosama that feels kind of half assed honestly. My biggest complaint would be that, after ch2 basically every chapter has the original Japanese text... more>> immediately below the corresponding paragraph. That is just pure laziness. So if your up for a light read and can ignore lazy pages then go for it because the novel itself isn't bad... it just isn't really good either. <<less

The story is generic (reincarnation in an other world OP and bland main character and harem), with a Hayate vibe added (apart from the reincarnation, it's also a bland, OP main character with a harem thing to be honest). It's not bad in itself, just not great either.

Aside from this, the translation is fairly ok, but the editing is really poor (so many chapters that have full japanese version of a paragraph bellow the translated one, I am not kidding).

Well, this was to be expected from re:translation I guess, along... more>> with batches of chapters far apart and quitting after a while.
That said, they did manage to get into volume 3, that's more than we can say about most of their translations.

Don't get me wrong, I'm really glad that this team is translating, it got me to know some really nice novels, but they have a real habit of not being consistent with releases and abandoning mid way, so it does need to be pointed out.

Overall, if you can get past these japanese lines everywhere, it's a decent enough story for the times you want a fairly dumb story with a OP and dense main character with a harem initiated by the girls, because the main character is somehow too dense to even notice (again, fairly generic trait, but some enjoyable stories still can be made with it). <<less
