I just think it's really funny that those absolutely disgusting novels about turning disabled family members and bedridden hospital patients into mind controlled meat toilets get such amazing rating yet people see two young girls on the cover and immediately spam 1 star ratings even though there's nothing suggestive in the tags or synopsis, not even a harem tag, which is already a +1 star to me, non-isekai is another +1. Anyway, so far we're only two chapters in and haven't even met the twins yet but I like what... more>> I'm seeing so far, we have an MC with something special about him who already have two things about him that separate him from the average beta male japanese MC. He isn't all strung up about trying to hide his uniqueness and actually has the unflinching resolve to show no mercy to those that mean him harm. There's always the possibility that my rating will change as the story advances but for now I'm kicking it off with my own 5 star rating. Hopefully this encourages the translator to continue. <<less

I know some people want their super-invincible protagonists, but when you break your rules of magic in the same sentence that establishes them, your worldbuilding fails hard, and later events just pile up on the "this is garbage" feeling.

The first chapter is where you establish your main character and the world setting. What I get out of the first chapter is that the MC is an arrogant ass that isn't limited by the world's rules, and that he likes showing off his god-like abilities, and mocking and killing people. The... more>> second chapter 'tells' you that that really isn't the case, but that mostly tells you that the author doesn't know how to make the actions match the words.

In the first chapter, I don't get any hint of what the world itself is like, other than it has trees that people will burn down without any concern, and some sort of magic system which the MC can blithely ignore the rules of (and, based on the title of the novel, is only scratching the surface of how ludicrously overpowered the MC will be). Also, random enemies that are probably meant to be Cartoonishly Evil, but that actually make the MC look like a Cartoonishly Evil Villain.

Chapter 2 makes it worse, as the attackers were literally a completely random encounter, not even of any consequence to the MC, as he didn't even know who they were. The second chapter does add a little more worldbuilding, but mostly just decoration to say that the world is stupid and crapsack, so that we can celebrate all the killing that the MC is likely to get up to.

The cover and description (with the twins) made me think that there was some chance that this might be trying a formula similar to Reincarnated As A Sword. However the first couple chapters made me realize that this is far more likely to take the bad parts of Death March instead, combined with maximum edgy feels.

I give it 2 stars because the translation isn't horrible, and the translator was quick to adopt labeling for the characters who were speaking, which is something many translators can't even be bothered with. <<less
