The God Slaying Hero and the Seven Covenants

Description

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

Three years ago, to defeat the Demon God who was trying to destroy this world, thirteen Braves were summoned from another world. Each of them had varied ages and gender. Each of them was bestowed with cheat like powers not normal in this world.

One asked for indomitable will against any adversity.
One asked for god-like magic power.
One asked for a power to heal everyone.
One asked for a power to cook foods that will bring smiles to everyone.

And so forth, each of them conveyed their wish and were granted what they asked for so that they could complete their quest. They then departed, on an adventure to defeat the demon god. For two years, they journeyed together and survived many hardships in this world, through joy, sadness, and discord; they persevered and in the end brilliantly defeated the demon god, brought peace to this world and then decided to live there. Among those thirteen is one man that hid his whereabouts and disappeared after defeating the Demon God, but everyone would say:

It is he, the center of the thirteen braves, who is far more heroic than others.

It is he, who valiantly stands on the foremost line, protecting the others behind him.

It is he, the strongest man that killed the demon god.

And it is he, the only one who is blessed and loved the most by the goddess.

People in this world struggle to kill basic monsters like goblins and orcs despite them being common foes that come out all the time. None of the heroes can fight the actually difficult opponents despite their overpowered goddess cheats. The MC whines nonstop about wanting to protect everyone, but instead of putting his power to real use his solution to save people is to wander around saving a minor amount of people at a time or random villages. And despite lackluster responses to everyone all the time, everyone adores the... more>> MC and constant time is wasted with his repetitive whining or people repetitively raving about how great he is. <<less

Very good series.

Albeit silly at times, overall the writing comes out as mature and thoughtful. The story can hold suspense and the scarce dialogue and plentiful monologues bring out the characters much better than most WNs. Especially the protagonist’s problems with identity and self-esteem are slowly elaborated upon and appear much less childish after getting to know the background of the story.

While the story progresses slowly, it drops subtle bombs just about every other chapter. Even very short exchanges hold a lot of emotion. They are often expanded upon in... more>> the protagonist’s inner monologue, but he admits to being contradictory and dishonest to himself, which makes him that much more human. Kudos to translator for conveying the writing well and with few notable mistakes. <<less

Imagine real world elite knights. They are strong, they are skilled, but they are human. They cannot hope to win against stronger and larger fantasy monsters.

That is the limit of MC capability unless he unlocks special conditions.

With this setting, MC tends to be pessimistic, since most of the time he couldn’t just power through them. Most soldiers and adventurers are even weaker than that. We get to see the hardship of fighting and traveling in fantasy world. Even fighting goblins is not something that can be done nonchalantly. Because... more>> of this, we can feel the tension of every fights.

An interesting change after reading too many OP stuff in the market.

However, the story pacing is very slow, too slow. It's very good at first. Very interesting when it gets to the interesting parts. But those parts seems too few and too far between in the later chapters. I find myself skimming each new chapter to see if there is anything interesting or is it just another filler trying to build up the next event. <<less

Its bloody good. Its takes a while to update but its good. This novel makes it to the Slice of Life which makes it Real and it appears to be Mature Contents well no $*× at least but mature to a degree. Since MC could die if he let's his guard down in battle, MC ain't Rich but could be if he wanted to since you know he is a hero of the human race for god sake's. And also many many Women are in love with him and again... more>> he ain't dense.

All in all if you don't like MC being Lazy, messy, appears to be weak, and brutal LN tat makes you cry then this ain't for you... seriously.

The story is great. Has actual plot and at the beginning you might hate the MC for he is Kinda Lazy which for obvious reasons that is. Has some bad ass moments and good relationship between the other God slayer's. Also MC and Stupid and Dense He is smart and knows others Love for him too some degree at least.

Well some chapters makes you cry, some happy to the point of saying [ Heck Yes! ]

Spoiler

Well in later chapters you would know why he calls himself weak and not a hero but a detective/broken hero since he’s powers aren’t really that kind hearted of a cheat...

By kind hearted I mean its not suitable for people who would cry and regret why they choose that power kind of thing.

[collapse]

And also this aint reccomended for those people out there who only read main stream LN/WN without much trill like "MC is powered up by sheer will or something like that
And also
Dont complaine about his powers this MC aint like Satou who cojld save a kingdome if not the world kind of a hero and saying things like a goblin is a standard fodder! Why you cant beat it easily!.
Please be realistic for a bit and use your head! To end a life only a single stab at the head or heart is enough to kill you, this novel is like the real world where a single misshap could end you.
So dont compare game logic and some OP world to this LN which is almost Real life kind of thing <<less

This is really good LN. I recommended everyone who likes fantasy setting to read this.

This is the story of an OP MC yet at the same times also a weak MC. This is a kind story of Summoned heroes go to journey to defeat a demon god. But with real issue like even though they're OP, a single miss could kill them, a single orge could kill them when they're careless. A story of "If you want to save the world, prepare for casualties".

A lot of reader find... more>> MC's annoying because his constant whining and low self-esteem. But there's a story behind it. Author always using 2 type of time-telling. Present and past which could confusing some people because when the story focusing in present times then it absurply change to past at next section as flashback, and the changing again to present time.

MC always saying he's not a hero and he's the weakest one in all 13 heroes because he can't use his full power without clearing the covenant to unlock the goddess blessing while the others can use their power easily. The said requirement also the reason why he won't accepting himself as a hero because it's contradicting with heroes image's that he believe.

MC always whining as the story goes, but he have a reasons for that.
Spoiler

1. MC's not whining a lot in the past. Something big change him into his present self
2. MC's a kind heart man that gain his comrade trust as their older brother/father figure. Because of that, other heroes always see him as the strongest hero, stronger than any of them
3. MC's power basically comes from his promises to others. The reasons why he hate his weak self that couldn't use his power without endangering his comrades.
3. Something big changed MC almost entirely and he started traveling by himself to fulfilling his promise to someone

[collapse]

All in all, this is a great story that telling "even if you're a hero, even if you're stronger than anyone, struggle, struggle to live, because a single mistake could cost your life" that other fantasy LN doesn't have. <<less

Decided to post this at interlude 2.

Not a lot is explained about the MC (Renji) in the beginning, however from his monologues and conversations you build up a feeling that he's a good for nothing "hero" who is the weakest of them all.

If you feel that way you couldn't be more wrong. Some of the things he does seem stupid, but actually have underlying meanings. For instance...

... more>>
Spoiler

He sells his really rare and expensive sword he used from his battle with the demon God to a local village shop for barely any money (something like 3 coppers). So you think he's stupid, since selling it to a collector would fetch him more money. Then in the second interlude, you find out that he sold it to the village as they were having money problems. So he essentially gave them something extremely expensive to sell if they needed it

[collapse]

Overall, it's a nice read and well thought out. <<less

Personally I really enjoyed this novel. It doesn't really focus on getting stronger but delves deeper into a more slice-of-life aspect that is humorous but also has quite a bit of depth in the interactions with the characters and makes a delightful read as you immerse yourself with the emotions and actions. The main character's POV is something you would find to be quite different but is an interesting take of looking at things

Overall it's a good read if you aren't looking for fast-paced novel and simply want to layback... more>> and enjoy <<less

This LN is rather unexpectedly mature despite its premise and setting. The story begins slowly and yes it goes slowly at its own pace while hinting many tragic events in the past with the least amount of exposition, it starts slow for a reason and you could only appreciate that slowness and stillness after your second read.

The MC was painted extremely well through the lens of other people, those who knows him barely and those who are close to him. The other casts around the MC is unique and likable,... more>> especially Eru who is all but a talking medallion.

Again this story is rather mature, not in the content but in the taste. It lacks the appealing hot blood hero you can find in a shounen tag story. If you are looking for a hotblood and adrenaline packed story, this is the wrong story for you.

The story is not about a hero who against all the odds fighting and winning against his greatest enemies. This story is about loss and acceptance, a very grim but natural aspect of life. The MC in this story while whining and behaving irresponsibly and thoughtlessly is trying to cope with the loss of his dear one, being unable to forgive himself and his failure. Through his interaction with the people around him, the MC slowly moves forward little by little, finding pieces of himself and slowly patching them altogether, showing a glimpse of who he was before and a glimpse of who he would be in the future.

The narrative in this LN is extremely powerful at times in how it painted the MC in the past and present events. The only reason I would not give this story a five stars is that it has yet to be able to vividly paint the world around the MC despite all the unique and likable casts it has.

Again, this story is an acquired taste. Those who don't appreciate it would not able to cope with the narrative of the story. <<less

MC is a really good guy but he has self-denial for that. Living the honest life after defeating the demon lord. There are a dozen or so heroes summoned, he's the oldest. Usually there will be friction and hatred, but for this one, everyone loves him. He's like a father figure for the younger heroes.

Mainly a slow-paced action adventure with bits of slice of life.

This is my first time read novel which MC have super inferior complex. Yeah I admit MC have eccentric attitude about value of own safety. Despite he weak againts normal monster than other otherworlder except demon, demon lord or demon god, he very-very modest and I don't know why he put value of himself in very bottom than other people.

The story itself in first volume and second is interesting, but I feel bored at third volume. Yeah you cannot expect because it is slice of life. I don't know whatever... more>> the next volume is better or not. <<less

Early part is hard to read mainly because the MC's inner monologue of being extremely lacking in motivation is rubbing me the wrong way, though as the story goes it's revealed why he become like that. If only the author toned down the amount of it and not repeating it every chapters I think it will be a lot better, as long as the basic traits have been established excessive repeating to reminds the readers become annoying instead.

Actually I liked the concept that he's not so OP and have to... more>> push trough with both will power and preserverence, and to get more power he have to go trough certain unfavorable situations to activates, it's just sometimes the author makes the end of the arcs very anticlimatic after a seemingly good build up chapters.
Spoiler

And even the ending is somewhat anticlimatic, not that it's bad, it's good, it's just feels, "That's it? It's already over?" even though all the plot resolved neatly I still think there should be something more from it...

[collapse]

In conclusion, it's a good series but the first trial for the reader is the author is excessively mentioning the MC's lack of motivation can be putting off potential readers, the MC is not OP so the fight is a shown in desperate measures, it's just sometimes the conclusion of some arcs/chapters are anticlimatic even though the build up is good. <<less

If you are looking for a fast pace, action pack novel then this is not for you.

This is a slow paced, story building novel that you will take time to read it and appreciate it. It is a slice of life story about MC one year after defeating the Demon God. You will see MC POV on how he handle being summoned to another world. Being the eldest of the 13 people summoned, he felt responsible to take care of them all despite having the weakest cheat (by mc's standard).

As... more>> of chapter 23, there is a nice plot build-up that will make the novel interesting <<less

4/5 Recommended read but it's starting to fall apart as the novel progresses.

Starts off with a great premise & interesting world: Basically the end/aftermath of a generic magic & swords reincarnation novel which explores more of the realistic issues faced with such things and how one would actually "win" such a scenario. This novel (realistically) presumes that the MC (s) would get their ass kicked if they were just to be sent into battle with the blessings of a goddess against an actual demon god.

Thus it starts off quite well... more>> with a very interesting MC who actually realizes most of the dangers/consequences of reincarnating into a magic & sword world to kill a god.

Spoiler

He knew that he couldn't just ask for magic/power/etc directly (since no matter how much one get's it'll always be inferior to the actual magic/power/etc of an actual god) like how the rest of his comrades did so he asked for a weapon to >kill Demon god's decedents --> MC's hero companions which have blessings from the god/goddess --> MC's non-hero companions/strong adventurers --> demons/beastmen/humans. So the MC isn't being a pu**y for no reason, he's actually very clear of his own ability & how frail he is without his power boosts but also very aware of the cost of unlocking his stronger powers.... mostly.

[collapse]

Unfortunately

Spoiler

Solnea's appearance LITERALLY OUT OF NOWHERE (found sleeping in a crystal from a magic cave that appeared out of thin air) just for the sake of providing a quest for the MC is retarded. Seriously the Goddess' best plan is to take a completely clueless, potentially evil robot newborn and make her the new demon god? And everyone just agrees to it? Wut?

Nobody figured they could just hang out for a decade or so to subjugate the demon decedents while seeing how she develops instead of just chucking her into the role of demon god? I mean MC's & co's presence should easily deter the other demon decedents.

I might just be overly sensitive, but I feel like this novel should also have a 'Tragedy' tag.

It isn't very noticeable at the beginning, but around where I currently have read (30), it expands a bit on the background behind why the main character constantly underestimates himself and doesn't feel heroic, and it is pretty heartbreaking.

Fairly heavy spoilers:

... more>>
Spoiler

The MC is very likely depressed because he failed to keep a promise with Ermenhilde and she died in his arms while they were fighting the demon god, and they seem to have been in love with each other. Something happened afterwards, but the current Ermenhilde seems to be different from the human version who died, and he seems to be trying to get the current one to be more humanlike. Since he was unable to protect her, he is trying to carry out his promise with her with this (different?) Ermenhilde, and it seems like he hasn't been able to get over her death, causing him to lose all confidence in himself due to his inability to protect her.

[collapse]

I might come back and edit this when I've finished catching up to what is currently translated. I hope this has a happy ending and not a tragic one. <<less

Interesting concept of what it means to be a true hero. You are not the strongest nor the the smartest, but you are the one who stand in front to protect those who have your back. A different perspective on what it means to be an hero.

Initially I didn’t like this novel because the MC came off to me as excessively negative, however after giving this novel a second look I came understand why it is so. He doesn’t view himself as a hero because he really does lack the strength to be one, but he possesses all the qualities and is only powerful when saving someone.
