This is a story of an overworked Japanese salaryman who, after a bad run-in with truck-san, wished for an easier life as a countryside noble in the less developed parallel world he reincarnates into. Some of the stuff is typical, he wished for OP magic and introduces some modern food (yay, rice) and other inventions. Some of the stuff is less typical, as in he's utterly lazy and is used and/or bullied by everyone including his family, especially his older sister. Why? Who knows, author's out of whack sense of... more>> humor I guess. MC himself is too spineless to stand up for himself with his magic and too lazy to even try for a more indirect solution. He even turns down magic school, 'fer crying out loud! 'Cuz, y'know, he's lazy. But not too lazy to be a gofer for everyone.

And contrary to what some of the reviews may indirectly imply, it's not just the female characters that bully and use him, even daddy dearest gets in the action by knocking him the f out when he turn 6 in the name of practice! But, the OP MC accepts everything 'cuz, y'know, he's lazy. Indeed, the author is very dedicated to reminding us that the MC is very, very lazy. Which gets very, very boring as the story goes on. And as unlikable as our lazy MC is, the constant threats and abuse hurled in his direction feel less like slapstick and more like... well, abuse, and thus makes it even harder for me to like this story.

The characters themselves are as simple as they get. Everyone has 1D personalities, no hidden depths, what you see is what you get. The MC is the perfect example of the passive doormat novel character I'll never like who's otherwise a blank slate with no ambitions whatsoever 'cuz, y'know, he's lazy (I hear these blank slate characters are popular because they're easy to self-insert into, but who wants to self-insert into losers like this guy?). Nobody in the first 25 chapters, nobody, has anything remotely approaching an even halfway likable personality.

I was going to give this 2 stars since, frankly, there are worse stories out there whose writing is a complete mess. This story might be boring as all hell but the writing is, at least, presentable. I have a bias against no signs of ending, without any purpose, continuous abuse and exploitation though, and this story's chances for a 2 star rating got knocked the f out when the MC suffered the same fate at the hands of daddy dearest. <<less

I quite enjoyed this at the beginning, but I can't read any further. SunsetChaos said in their review "... just a happy and fun childhood. It's exactly as it's described, so no one should be complaining." but I can't emphasise just how wrong this claim is. The MC is treated like dirt, like a slave by his "older" sister. The MC has been conditioned, it feels like I'm reading about a victim of abuse. Despite being reincarnated, thus mentally older, and way stronger than her thanks to his magic, he... more>> never stands up for himself and is terrified of his sister, yet the author keeps expecting us to believe this is normal and harmonious family life?

It's just disturbing, and aggravating. A slow, happy, cute slice-of-life story doesn't mean the MC has to be a spineless sack of s**t who is routinely abused by his family. Is it really so much to ask for an MC to be neither pathetic nor a "badass" self-insert fantasy? <<less

Quite an incredulous story of how a japanese reincarnated person obsess over the lack of rice, food variety and entertainment. Unbelievable enough since in any society in history, entertainment is almost always well-developed, and forcing a western country to eat rice is really quite thoughtless. Putting these aside, there is an overwhelming lack of realistic reactions from the people around regarding such impossible genius and knowledge that I'm not looking forward to any further character development in the future. Of course then again, one may say that many other novels... more>> do this, but that just all the more make this lie in the below average department, since nothing stands out AT ALL <<less

Generic isekai

generic plot

im fairly fine with slice of life without much going on. But what really annoyed me about this novel was the authours sense of humour.

... more>> and that’s the femdom of the village, now being female myself, femdom alone won’t piss me off. But the way the females treat others, especially the males was practically abusive, as well as self sentered and selfish.

i feel like japanese novels don’t know where the line between, strong female character and oppressive female character is.

and then how the characters treat the MC, honestly, dragging around a 3 year old every where until he’s worn out? Denying everything no he says, and just expect him to accept and follow along?

Worse? A father Duelling a 6 year old and knocking him out because if some stupid joke? On top of that blaming it on the child himself. This is ridiculous, as a child I know that some kids get hit, but literally making them faint or forcing them to do sh*t otherwise they will get beat up, is terrible.

i know that this is suppose to be the black humour, but the authour is terrible at it. Despite there being a wide cast of females, none of the female are likeable in the slightest, and they all seem to be cut from the same cloth or unreasonableness.

genric slice of life Isekai, need good or at least, likeable characters, in Order for it to pull through. It this doesn’t have that.

it only has characters that for some reason think, oppression, abuse and invading of privacy is a good thing. And I find this book incredibly uncomfortable. <<less

What do you do when you have mastered every type of magic by the time you are six? You wander around aimlessly looking for Japanese food and getting into hijinks with your stock character family members and townsfolk. This is the story of a guy who gets sent to Fantasy God in the White Space by Truck-san. God says, hey, what do you want for your life in Fantasy World. Guy says, I want an easy comfortable life with no challenges whatsoever. God says, well the reader is going to... more>> get bored of you in no time at all, but whatever, it's your life.

This slice-of-life story of an OP reincarnator is neither offensive in its awfulness nor delightful in its wonderfulness. It is the epitome of "meh". If you have nothing better to read, then it will go down easy and fill the void. If you have anything better to read, then read that instead, because there's no nutritional value here. <<less

This is a surprisingly enjoyable light novel.

I thought it would be a tad stereotypical / template story, although it can be said to be a bit cliche, but its enjoyable.

Like many of the other reviewers noted, the story starts to fall apart into genericness. MC is the typical isekai'd Japanese who's thoughts mainly consist of "enlightening" his village with Japanese food and games. There's little plot to build on despite slight teasings of "gee, this magic would be great to make money", but it never seemed to go anywhere.

In addition, the author clearly has some grudges against women, or a fem-dom fetish as the MC is constantly abused by his sister, mother, and maid. The straw that broke the... more>> camel's back was a maid quite literally stealing candy from a 6 year-old.

It's utterly unrealistic (or utterly herbivore Japanese) that this mentally 27 can't figure out how to interact with women in order not to incite violence towards himself. <<less

The first arc when the MC's on his own home is lightly entertaining, well the comedy is quite relaxing though at some point it's a little bit slapstick. Too bad it failed to keep the momentum and halfway trough it lost the appeal, since well the MC's basic setting is "don't want to do anything bothersome" so the story stalled as it's progressing. The MC becomes empty husk which only function is to respond to anything done by the side characters, he barely initiates any activity and when it seems... more>> he wanted to, he will give up as quick as one chapter. Also the author runs out of jokes...

Spoiler

On the second arc after that it's become completely dry, the author introduces new characters but they're not as interesting as the characters from the first arc and the author seems trying too hard to prevent the MC doing something exciting. The author repeatedly makes the MC refuse anything that seems will be exciting since he want to laze around, which makes him looks like a slob... (In the first arc it's barely mentioned but on the second arc it's often mentioned as if to remind the readers to not expect him doing something, which makes it feels irritating instead)

female character that harass MC is fine because for some reason the author find it fluffy, cute, easygoing to be bullied by females

I bet if a male character did the same thing as the female character then he would be the villian of the novel.

Light, relaxing, enjoyable read. A leisurely slow life in the countryside, with loving family and siblings, nice villagers, etc. Fun time everyday, cute MC kid. Just look at that cover.

Nothing dark or serious. It's exactly like how Mushoku Tensei was like in the beginning. MC is not ambitious or seeking revenge or harem or anything. There's no harem or even romance, just a happy and fun childhood. It's exactly as it's described, so no one should be complaining. Otherwise just go read Mushoku Tensei if you want a sudden change... more>> of pace.

Good translations, occasional English errors here and there, nothing too bad. <<less

Surprisingly entertaining.

Grammar: 3.5/5
Story: 2.5/5
Writing: 3.5/5

The grammar is above average, with a few instances of awkward wording/phrasing. The story is fairly standard, cut-and-dry, it's your usual reincarnation with the person using his previous knowledge to gain advantages towards daily life and possible future exploitation for financial stability. The writing is nice and consistent with humor thrown in thanks to a slightly unusual family. Over all, though this series is nothing ground breaking, it is a nice read to pass some time.

I'll be reading this when I run out of... more>> other materials to read, or when I'm feeling the need to take it slow and enjoy a small smile or two. <<less

Overly descriptive title, getting hit by truck, reincarnated as a noble son. 4/5, it's okay.

the novel isn't bad, was better in beginning, but get's worse over time. A regular isekai with reincarnator making stuff from japan and everyone raving over it saying its amazing. The problem I mainly had with the novel is the treatment of the MC. In the storyworld we know of so far is pretty much being controlled by the women, which I have no problem with can see that in modern life with many families, however because of this the MC gets pushed around so much and eventually I feel... more>> like its just bullying. This is suppose to be a lighthearted comedy novel and I understand it is suppose to be a gag/joke about men being whipped by the females and however it is overused and makes it feel like the author has a fetish for femdom, woman dominating men.

In the beginning the gag was fine especially because it wasn't used as much there it was subtly mentioned and used once in a while but getting in to it a little further it just became the main joke and out of nowhere everyone keeps focusing on the MC, randomly they start to manhandle a little kid. Furthermore in the beginning the MC is trying to live a peaceful life but he is actively acting against his own wishes and does not even try to avoid the obstacles (people) stopping him from relaxing. <<less
