He, who was originally supposed to be returned to his original world, became unable to return due to the Magical Kingdom’s mistake, and inevitably, had to live in this world.

However, the moment he became Lv2, Banaza acquired every attainable skill and magical ability, and he became a Super-Cheat with Stats that transcend normal limits! Even so, Banaza , who does things at his own pace with an easygoing smile, takes Lys of the Demon race as his wife, and fully enjoys his newlywed life. He then changes his name to Furio and leads an even more laid-back life! However, chaos is in store for the Furio household; on top of a strange pet and four, freeloading Female-Knights, even a Devil and Former Demon King join in. Despite his circumstances, even with his life becoming increasingly chaotic, Banaza continues to enjoy his laid-back lifestyle.

Please enjoy the story of the everyday life of the Furio family, which, with the birth of the twins, gets ever increasingly laid-back. Included is also the story of the man who became a Hero in Banaza’s place!

Feels unlike normal novels. The MC has already married and is not like normal MCs who waste more than 200 chapters without feeling a thing. Shows a lot of potential and I advise to try it.

Great Novel, translation maybe quite a bit off. If you looking for plots? Then this novel probably not the one for you, super op MC, super slice of life, all battle instantly over. Read up to Chapter 11, the description of action and adventure is worse than Satou's fight, all battles are immediately over using two sentences.

What I like about is how the MC really straight forwarded and married unlike other manga or novels that take 99999999 chapters in order for MC and female protagonist come together.

Man, I have high expectation of this novel. I love OP character, I’m okay with hero summoning setting but my expectation was dashed in only seven chapters. Too much explanation, too little dialogue, I really dislike that kind of writing.

The MC is your average clueless OP guy who wants to enjoy daily life/leisure life/something like that. The problem is, he's so OP his OPness could solve the problem by itself. Basically he got menu "would you like to do this? " Then problem solved. Sooo boring.

The problem with this story is that most of the events happen very arbitrarily, with little to no buildup or explanation. The power of the MC is essentially a window that automatically pops up ans asks him if he wants to solve the problem in front of him weather he knows about it or not, making the story more interesting when he is not involved. He believes himself to be fairly normal for no reason, and not in a funny way. It seems more for the sake of the trope... more>> that anything else. Characters are very much one dimensional and although this improves somewhat as the story progresses, I would not recommend this story. <<less

Its fun... thats it.

Okay, okay, so lets get this out of the way, this isnt an action novel or a fantasy novel or even a harem novel, its a Slice of Life with occasional battle scenes, but the main part of the novel is the interactions of the cast and... well, its fun, it just is, its entertaining reading about the back and forth of the characters, there's no real tension as the characters are OP enough to wipe gods from the beginning, so the battle scenes are just there... more>> to add characterization to, well, the characters.

Its a fun turn-off-your-brain kind of novel, and you know? sometimes thats enough. <<less

Here's why I gave only a 3. I take off 1 star for bad grammar (translation I believe is on point, the author just sucks), and another for detail (severely lacking).

To elaborate, the grammar has multiple mistakes, ranging from punctuation, capitalization, and misspelled words. Such as singular woman being written as plural women. Multiple sentences don't end with periods or have commas in the correct positions (though that might be a case of translation). There are also a few awkwardly capitalized words thrown in their or words not capitalized at... more>> all.

As for detail... Honestly? It feels like I'm reading a 12 year old's chuuni/super hero fantasy. There's no detail at all. Just cause and effect, this happened and that's the response, so on and so forth. No need to go further as I think this accurately explains what it's like.

Now, for my personal opinion. I like it. It's enjoyable, a little adorable, and, quite honestly, I freakin love the fact that the MC is actually loyal to his girl. I get tired of all those indecisive, harem seeking walking hard-on's ruining good novels. This is a little bit of a refresher, if you can get past the horrible details this is great. It has its own little charm to it.

Yes, the MC is op. Yes, everything is solved within the chapter. So what? That's fine. This was never a story meant to build upon intense action scenes, or high rez world building. It's meant to be a slice of life of an op guy and his wife. If you don't like that stuff... Why the heck are you even reading this? Simply leave. Literally not that hard. Just click the red/black/grey x on the tab or window and you're good.

Meh, anyway, it's a decent read. Despite all that I despise about it, it's quite adorable so I shall stay. <<less

Ha~ The plot is actually interesting. It's not original but it is interesting. The character also quite intrigued but the thing is, I don't know if the fault lay on translator or on the author in the first place but the writing is... I'll be frank, HORRIBLE.

It's really such a shame because it has potential to be better novel, if not for the writing. However, in novel writing is everything. It has so little buildup like seriously little. You can't even feel the tension. Not exciting enough. The fighting is... more>> scene is too abrupt.

I don't even know how can I stand to even read it until 50+ chapters. What am I thinking, really?

Another thing is, the translator site, novelsjapan is very risky site. It uses ads and don't complain if one day your device will download virus while you read it. <<less

Review up to chapt 6~

I... i... I don’t know... this is... this story is...

Not original, the usual got summoned to some kingdom to be a hero, to be kicked out because our MC is sh*t... heck, is japanese author is only great at creating this usual tropes? Sigh...

If this is the first time I read this kind of story, the MC got summoned by kingdom to be a hero, then I think I will rate this good, but since I have read soooooo many of story that have this... more>> usual tropes (weak > summoned > ask to be a hero > kicked out > become op later) like arifureta, konjiki no moji tsukai, shield bro, etc... I find this is unoriginal and... word can’t express how am I really dissappointed...

Enough my rant, short summary :

“Got summoned, got kicked from the kingdom, but because he’s op, he will build his own harem later, but because he’s... ah do you know brick? Then add cement to it... that’s how our MC personality is... ”

I will not review this story yet, but will come back to review it when it reach chapt 20~

Personal rate : 2/5 (3/5, but minus 1 star because it's not original), I will not recommend this, but I won’t hold you back from reading it either, will change the rate when some chapter is out <<less

In terms of comedy, this novel is one of the best. It also doesn't focus too much on the MC, instead choosing to drift around so that you have a better understanding of the story.... Granted, I still don't know what the over all plot is. If anything, this a happy slice of life comedy with sporadic action and adventure. There's technically no harem, and the MC is loyal to his wife.

I highly recommend this novel.

Check the tags, and understand that this series does a good job with pretty much all of those tags.

This is a FUN series, which I recommend reading the latest translation of, and you'll absolutely fall in love.

The storytelling is detailed yet concise.
The characters are all unique, motivated, and given depth (to the extent possible in a fast paced wn).
The plot is slice-of-life, but still manages to feel like it's progressing naturally.
The writing itself is witty and clever - you will likely laugh quite a bit.

Overall impression: On... more>> a scale of one to ten; Lys. <<less

This is just my personal opinion so don't chew me up on it.

This novel just getting boring less interesting as it progress. I am a fan of world transport/reincarnation novel and also a big fan of OP MC, but this one and a few others are suck as they progress. I don't mind the grammar as long as I can understand what the sentence is saying. For the past 20 chapters or so I have been skimming through it... meaning it's that boring that I don't even need to read... more>> the whole things to understand what the chapter is about.

As of now, I drop it (damn those pop up after the site tells me to disable adblock). <<less

Its difficult to explain how I feel about this light novel (LN).

Its like the author had nothing, but that led to something. Then when you thought the author had something, it seems like nothing, but he doesn't have nothing just more than nothing, but less than you thought when the author had something...

At first I liked this story and from nearly the beginning you knew exactly what this was. A story about a main character (MC) that was extremely overpowered to the point where he could beat anything in the... more>> world if he wanted to. However, the MC decides that he doesn't want to do anything really. He just wants to live a comfortable life, with someone to enjoy it with him.

The problem is, that the MC really does do nothing all the time and the author puts so little emphasis on the day-to-day life that you wonder what the point of the story is. Is it just to read about someone who could do something but really would rather just have s*x with his wife all day? This LN seems like an everyday daydream where you'd like to be on the beach sipping beer with no responsibilities ever.

If the author actually makes something interesting out of the MC's every day life or if some plot actually happens then maybe i'll start reading this series again, but for now I'm done reading. <<less

I feel as if the MC has literally become a different person upon hitting level 2.

Personality changed for no apparent reason - check
Suddenly Badass with no explanation - check
Knows how to use his powers to the point of perfection instantly - check
Random unnecessary underlings introduced for no reason - check
Every villain ever just a tool to show how strong MC is - check

If you are into this kind of stuff, I won't stop you, but it is seriously rushed and has serious flaws, but I'll give... more>> it a 3.00 just to not mislead people who like these novels to think that it is utterly unreadable <<less

This story is not about adventure but a slice of life story like Jikuu Mahou. Reading what is happening to the kingdom and demon side, and also on each of his subordinates or girls is really fun.

Is this a usual harem-type story? I can't say that it is completely like that after all aside from the lovey-dovey moment of his wife Lys there is no other action like that with other girls, though the girls might feel an affection for the MC it more looks like a they are... more>> idolizing him when you look at it outside.

So, want a relaxing, slice of life, transport story, this might be for you?

PS: This is not a forsaken-hero kind of story. <<less

Nice story, really different form all conventional Japanese stories! It got the same startup as any summoning story, but to get married and enjoy life, that a different issue! It like a god living a human life!

Thanks for translating this story!

Ah.... another one of these web novels on Syosetu. Needless to say, I read the other reviews and took into account the blinders that people seem to have when it comes to this type of genre + the #HYPU around it and started reading without too much expectation.

After reading the 6 translated chapters and a bit ahead I have to say this story is pretty average (at best). The MC is your typical Japanese nice guy who is so virtuous the pope would feel ashamed, add onto that he's dense... more>> and OP and you have one frustrating fellow.


Everything in the story seems to be leading up to him inadvertently saving the very country that banished him and tried to kill him (which being the nice guy he is doesn't seem to be a problem).


Anyway, if you're bored and the updates to this are frequent, then it's not unreadable. <<less

Review up to chapter 6. An intriguing series with a lot of potential. Unlike a lot of series with “overpowered” male protagonists, the protagonist of Lv 2 seems to not really care about, well... anything, which is refreshing (since most series with an overpowered protagonist tend to climb the social/divine/harem hierarchy as quickly as possible). Instead of being about powering up, it seems as though the protagonist cannot get anymore powerful and acknowledges this in order to focus on a fantasy/slice-of-life story. Written well with a genuinely compassionate and reasonable... more>> main character, I cannot wait to read more. <<less

Was expecting a Slice of life/romance centralized on an OP Protagonist that can handle anything so there's no unnecessary drama.

Which is true for this novel none the less, What I found annoying about this novel is that it tends to focus on the side characters too much and personally I found their shennanigans not that enjoyable. Most of the chapters had me thinking "Come on get to the two main characters already". There's also a LOT of side characters so the author juggles between them while shoving some bits with... more>> the two main characters here and there.

Frankly I don't like it. Don't get me wrong, I tend to generally like a Novel if the side characters are getting fleshed out in their own way (Fleshed out is the wrong word for this by the way its not that good of a character development either) but you have to balance it out with the Two main characters getting a chapter dedicated to them here and there. <<less

Hoo, a fascinating slice of life novel with OP protagonist similar to Death March, but unlike Death March where MC still haven't touch his harem yet even after hundred of chapters, This MC having s*x right after getting abandoned by the King and country (Chap 7) and doing the deed with the s*xy demon nearly everynight.

Even though he's kinda oblivious to many things that made readers pop the veins on their forehead, but he is natural with woman, truly a Dangerous existence.

I finish reading most of top jap wn/ln translated, or cn wn (not all of them). They are many novel that I want to wait till 100 chapter before I start reading. But unfortunately, not many novel reach 100 chapter.

So I spent searching for novel that at least without suspense and climax, a novel that doesn't make you want to say cliffhanger!!!! Because this novel doesn't have the cliffhanger, relaxing, no suspense, a little bit of comedy, no tragedy, horror or ntr.

After reading many story with cliffhanger or cn... more>> wn that have non-stop enemy coming one after the other, I just wish just to read lots and lots of relaxing novel.
And this is one of them. <<less
