It's not bad

A bit of a typical pushover Japanese MC but he's also rather capable in different aspects and talented too, so he's at a higher starting point than most other protag templates. Also handsome from what it appears in the chapters, so that's a plus. The story is pretty mid objectively where it's enough that you can normally read it to pass the time, but personally I've enjoyed it. The dialogue is pretty entertaining to read and the characters feel pretty unique and interesting. I like each and every... more>> girl and the misunderstandings that occur are fairly amusing.

Although I don't think it's actually 5 stars, I don't think it's as bad as 3.3, so boost the rating a bit ^^ <<less

1st 5 chapters were fine, then it went to shite. I'll wait till there are another 10 chapters to see if it improves.

Somehow a vocalist of the most popular band in Japan (in unverse) is a huge anti-social wuss. (Even though he has great relationships with his colleagues)

Also, this has one of my most hated tropes, MC has to dress as a women to 'protect' the image of a female, plus he didn't object to it all.

Okay self-insert power fantasy. You just have to turn your brain off while reading this.

Though it's incredibly annoying how angsty and edgy the protagonist is all the time. Like, not even a paragraph goes by without the dude throwing a self-deprecating comment just randomly, for no reason.

Update with slight spoilers:

... more>>

After chapter 60 or so there's such a contrived silly drama going on that it completely sucks the little enjoynment I had with this novel. A misunderstanding that could easily be solved, something that would be a throw-away joke in other romcoms but here the author rolls with it to reset the status quo and introduce more heroines. In the end, it makes the MC look like even more of an annoying pushover than before. The dude keeps taking abuse and humiliation (willingly) and his friends don't say anything even when it was stated that they'll clear eveything up for him. bruh what

Also, he doesn't know he's hot because he doesn't look at himself in the mirror. What. It's not like he suffers from some cognitive disorder, no, he just... doesn't know what his face looks like and that's why he believes he's so ugly that he has to wear glasses and keep his messy long hair.

This novel is very clear wish fulfillment, which I found mostly refreshing due to its blatantness but which I realize doesn't fit everyone or all moods. I might have rated it harsher in a different frame of mind, but for me now it was an interesting enough WN. The premise is basically full of paradoxes:

... more>>
  1. High school boy with a yandere sister (not the knife kind, but close to the lock you up kind)
  2. Multi-millionaire (enough to easily spend $30K a month on bodyguards and consider it cheap) yet relatively modest house, no money for fashion, no particular concern with installing an app that broadcasts your location 24/7 (also, WTF is that app? Does Japan actually have this?)
  3. The MC consists himself ugly for some reason, despite being told many times that he's not
  4. The MC is strangely oblivious to romance, despite being a celebrity who's been approached romantically many times before
  5. No parents in sight

The ending for v2 was probably the biggest BS I've read in a while, with the MC abusing his status, investing tens of thousands of dollars, and stealing someone else's show yet getting no reward for his efforts. I get that the author likes arcs, and that old heroines rarely show up in new arcs, but was there really no better way to solve the situation other than in a way that'd get you hated by everyone you're trying to protect?

The characters are bad written I think. The story line too. I hate it the most when MC look down to himself. LMAO the story said he's very famous. He should atleast be a bit more confident. Introverts are just a people who usually spend their time alone and not good at socializing not like hasumi not like the MC. The character's personality is inconsistent with the story. That's how it be

I like it. MC is the typical weak and overly kind-hearted boy who is constantly bullied. However, this novel actually does it decently by providing niche supporting characters that make such a personality tolerable or even enjoyable. The story moves rather quickly, but there are tons of cute character interactions to see in every chapter. Solid story.

It is more or less funny. The MC is a big pushover that it gets annoying most of the time. I'll keep the overall judgment until more chapters are released.

I like it. Be sure to check out the tags and genre before trying it.

There's a lot of misunderstandings which I find amusing and cute. Just a warning, but some may not like stories like this, with repeating misunderstandings. You have been warned.

Also, there are yandere girls inside. A lot. Their daily interactions are entertaining and the MC is just so dense. He is also a loner and have a low self-esteem, which may be the reason why he is a 'pushover'

The chapters are clear with very little grammatical mistakes,... more>> thanks to the translator's hard work. You can clearly see the effort put inside, which is another reason why you should try it. <<less

Well to simply say it's not a series you can get really addicted to. At first, it was going ok-ishly but after the first arc ended, it just felt like a loop. The ML almost didn't have any character building in the whole 78 chapters. There were some minor changes in his characterstics but beside that nothing really changed that much. It looped the same cliche (Not the same one as the First Arc but similer).

The main story isn't that bad that it should get a 2/3 star. Personally it... more>> would be a 3.5 star for me as it currently is. Also sometimes the ML just feels mentally ill. He doesn't notice obvious things.

So, should you read it? Actaully it depends on you if you can wait for god knows how long the next chapter (c79). The translator caught up to the series about 1/2 months ago. In his lastest chapter, the translator mentioned that it hasn't been uploaded for a while now. So, it depends on you. If you wanna read it, do so. Just don't read it all in one-go it'll feel boring af. <<less

Out of all novels I've ever read, this is the most extreme discrepancy between how the MC views himself and how he's viewed by others.

I personally found it somewhat enjoyable, but if you dislike super dense protagonists who can't recognise their good points and appearance, you will hate this novel and I recommend sparing yourself the frustration.

He's basically making millions with music and any girl who sees his face falls in love instantly, plus he's also always at the top of the class in studies. However, for some weird reason,... more>> he looks down on himself and even manages to explain away what amounts to confessions, proposals, and more.

The novel has various funny moments, but sadly lacks any depth. It's basically the fulfillment fantasy of an immature loner imagining having a perfect life outside of school.

This may sound more negative than I intended and I did enjoy reading it, but its weak points are extreme. <<less
