This is a bad novel. It's awful how this seemingly mediocre MC is in the middle of everything happening as he is a nobody, has no conversation skills nor anything that justifies people actually listening to him.

The fact that the world revolves around MC is s*upid. The "daughter" trusts this MC because he protected her from being killed (let's not talk how he's faster than the sword blow and how he can reach the girl before she's cleaved) and even accepts calling him father within a couple hours. What? Even... more>> if she wasn't close to her own race it doesn't mean she would be willing to trust the invading, pillaging and murderous race. She's just plot device to make the author pander to his kinky s*ave incest fetish.

The MC is a rock too. He's put into the middle of the battlefield but he's unnafected by it. Even when his future is not known he hesitates to drink from the same container a chick drank from (and he even writes that he "swears that the liquid on the edge is not water" i.e. He's about to drink her salive) as if the author just wants to write his erot*c novel but pretends that there's more than loli succubus growing huge boobs during nighttime.

If you want to fap then maybe there'll be erot*c content but if not then you'll end up as a cuck like MC.

Also, Translator adds chapters to Novelupdates while they're still Patreon-only chapters. That's not good. <<less

From the same author as the one who wrote:

"Oh no! After I Reincarnated, My Moms Became Son-cons!"

As usual, the Author simply loves his Yandere & "family affairs" (please refer to the author's previous title for further "details" on my "as usual" comment) and this time, it begins with a "father" and his "daughter" (yeah, you read it correctly). Besides the aforementioned sub-genres, there is also an Isekai element. The MC, right after the mysterious transfer, considered himself as unlucky due to 1> having no cheat or any special abilities (or... more>> so it seems? I still need more chapters to confirm my hunch, but it looks like he was actually "blessed" with some ability, unlike what he claimed) and due to 2> what happened right after he was being transferred into the new universe (he was practically ready to give his "second" life away for a certain cause or reason)

Next, as the title suggested, there will also be a "motherly" (alright, "mother") character (or even "mothers" that is written in a plural form) getting mixed into the MC's family (as of the moment I read this LN, the mother characters have yet to be introduced) and the carnage & competition might ensue consequently (what exactly do the disputed parties compete for? Well you can guess it from the provided synopsis and my review, can't you?)

The "daughter" is apparently not of human-race (and she seems to have "dark" past & secrets befitting her racial characteristic). In addition, there are also two female characters (both are of human-race) as of the fifth chapter of the first volume, one is an absolute ruler with a sadistic tinge mixed in her character and the other one is strong heroine with outstanding capability well-versed in combat and warfare (and with a good nature and traits? Need more chapters to confirm)

Without further ado, do give this series a read! Especially if you have read the author's previous work, for there are some "easter eggs" lying to be found on the series. I hope you enjoy this new, electra-esque (LOL) series which revolves around Yandere and the female's hostility & jealousy! <<less

It feels refreshing to read a well-written novel amongst the tr*shes and filths that are CN novels and most LNs nowadays. Read it on your own, you gonna either hate it or love it. If you like 3d characters, somewhat decent romance and some territory building then you are in the right place. MY THOUGHT ON THE MC

Well, most the 1-star review here bit*h about the MC, that is due to the misleading summary and their expectation. They were expecting the MC to be some uber demon king who... more>> wreaks shits, dominate people and having some Oyakodon s*x with his wife and daughter. They got a normal mediocre MC who act like a gentleman and has the decency to not jump his cute, sexy, clingy adoptive daughter and his beautiful stoic mistress whose common sense does not exist. Excuse him for not acting like a horndog and having a strong moral fiber in his being. Also, most of the action makes sense. He is, after all, is just a normal s*ave with no extraordinary power or skill, so if he wants to live, he has to do undignified things. That is typical of being a s*ave. So I don't see a reason to bit*h about it. Besides, he has plenty of chances to jump both his daughter and mistress but won't due to his standard, that is admirable. It good to see an MC that not follow the stereotype of being:

A horndog who thinks with his penis. A ret*rded motherf*cker who is too s*upid to live yet keep living like a cockroach due to plot armor. A mastermind who know it all and play several Xanatos speed chess match at once. An omnicidal maniac who just go around killing people left and right

It's much more interesting to read about regular joes doing great things than an OP character doing great things. Don't get me wrong, it's fine to write an OP character. Just make him challenged. We read stories to see characters struggle and overcome challenges. Although it is cool to read and OP characters overcome challenges with a wave of a hand for the first few times, it gets boring fast. This is unfortunately forgotten by many LN writers nowadays and as a result, created the great pile of tr*sh known as "Typical Isekai". They also forgot that there are many other ways to challenge a character than just physical challenge. Challenge his mind, challenge his sanity, challenge his relationships and challenge his morals like the author did in this Novel.

Yeah the description for the novel is a straight up lie except the part that states the MC is useless.

If you don't like authors son-con novel (abysmal also) then you won't like this one.

MC- got stepped on and a foot shoved in his mouth and guess what? He enjoyed it. Even though he seems to be an adult he has no contact with women since most of his monologs are what a horny teenager would say.

Queen- Sadistic and treats humans like actually dogs and such, If it wasn't for the... more>> Warrior girl then I don't doubt that she would've been overthrown already.

Warrior girl (forgot her name) - Seems to not mind what the Queen does since she is a soldier, Her exacts words is "I'm a soldier". Wants to be friends with the little girl she tried to kill and then wonders why the little girl doesn't want anything to do with her.

Leah- the girl our MC 'saves' at the start. Only saving grace of the novel is her, Except her stating MC is her papa after a few hours of conversation she seems to act like a normal child. <<less

A poorly written soft core fetish novel about a loli succubus and her adoptive "Daddy."

No matter what other reviews say, the author's focus isn't the story. They're practically tripping over themselves to rush through the opening and get to the fetish content, which isn't good for story telling. Additionally, if you've listened to the cringy dialogue of a porno, you know what to expect from the novel overall with how forced everything is.

Content aside, just it isn't written very well.

Very, very interesting.

Unlike our MC in Son-con, our new MC literally got thrown face first into a new world with nothing. No special status, no way train or power up, nothing.

Prior to this our MC was only a secretary, I guess his only power is to bootlick.

Regardless he has to protect his newly acquired daughter in this new world filled with danger.

Too few chapters to really give a well done review, not that I make any of those anyway.

Hopefuly this picks up pace, it's very promising.

First I would like to say I'm really suspicious of the number of 5 stars this novel got. Going by the reviews with actual words in them the score should be much lower. Seriously I've never seen a novel description lie so blatantly before. Pretty much 90% of it does not fit the novel. It makes it sound very over the top and hints at the fact that the main character is interesting in some way. Both are false.

Also, I'm just gonna say it, the MC doesn't f*ck anyone and... more>> there is not that much Yandere stuff. So if that's what you're looking for look elsewhere.

From what I have read so far the novel is VERY slow and kind of boring, with some erot*c descriptions sprinkled here and there. The weird part is that the erot*c segments seem awkward and out of place and the story wouldn't really change with it removed. Which makes no sense judging by the description and the title.

I skipped ahead to ch40 ish and the story still did not progress much and the few chapters I skimmed through still seemed pretty boring and nothing really happens in them.

The novel seemed like an interesting read and I'm still pretty pissed that the description lied to me. Giving it 2 stars because the story shows hints of promise but for sure it will take many more chapters until it gets there (like at least ch100+ judging by the way the novel is progressing). Personally I don't have the patience for it so I'm dropping it. <<less

I'm not gonna lie, I love this and I probably will even after everything has been translated. Compared to the other novels, the MC feels grounded. He's weak, he doesn't have any special abilities, nothing. He's not isekai'ed with a class and then kicked out only to gain skill-steal, he doesn't have some op cheats, but you know what he does have?


More balls than I ever will and he's rewarded for it with a cute loli and a waifu wife who hasn't realized it. He loses his balls however... more>> when he's confronted with women stripping and his daughter lusting for him, I would too, the responsibilities that comes after it is too much to bear.

Real talk, I like this novel because it has a good blend of everything that I like, little pieces of world-building scattered about, slice of life, character development, femdom (wait what) , and I like incest (in fiction ok?). Also, the issue that many seem to have is that the MC doesn't have the balls to f*ck his underaged daughter and an emotionally deprived women with no common sense and has been penetrating demons all her life (if you get what I'm saying (͡° ͜ʖ ͡°) (͡° ͜ʖ ͡°) (͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)).

Look, what I'm trying to say is, is that it's 2AM. Idk wtf I'm saying but look, if the MC f*cks his daughter and his waifu wife'nt the story won't be what it is now. It's like if Kirito wasn't dense and f*cked his harem, it's like if the uhhh... the guy from Infinite Stratos f*cked his harem, it's like if Negi f*cked his class, what would the story be then?

It'll be boring that's what.

Also, when's the last time you've read a story that has an extreme kuudere (without the dere) ?

6/5, would not stay up late again.

edit: why did everyone who read under 20 chapters give it a bad review? HMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMM

Look, honestly, suspension of disbelief is a thing desu. Just enjoy the ride. <<less

I don’t know if it’s just me, but I feel like the the author takes extreme pleasure in making his main character getting dominated by other female characters. Overall, the story is pretty slow while some chararacters make you really annoyed. Main chararacter as of so far is a complete disappointment. The synopsis makes him sound omnipotent and all this Anat that, but he’s actually pretty useless.

Compulsively readable.
Some real darkness and grit involved in post-war era reconstruction and politics, and the lingering trauma of the survivors. An interesting choice for an MC, seems like an entry-level gopher with an advanced education at an elite corporation positioned for advancement in the future, who loses that opportunity thanks to truck-san. Great world building, and some complicated characters: honestly some of the side characters seem to have more depth and layers than the three main characters do. In particular, Queen Sisi is a scream: cruel, brilliant, and egotistical;... more>> so far anyone predicting her insanity and downfall has gotten their teeth kicked in.

The romance of the story, such as it is, is pretty unsatisfying. The ero moments can get pretty humorous and dirty, but the male lead is basically stuck in a yandere crossfire where commitment to one girl would likely mean death, and it isn't clear if polygamy is an option in this world. The first best girl the MC meets is one of those illegal legal lollis, a child demon who turns into a fully functioning adult at night but will never get to fulfill her love because the MC won't respect her biological needs (and the FBI don't care what your fantasy setting is like). The MC is actually deeply irresponsible about the nature of his adopted daughter, despite being surrounded by the equivalent of special forces types who used to fight demons and are in on Leah's secret and meeting an entire clan of succubi in the capital he never once asks anyone about the differences in their species, and when other succubi try to tell him how she isn't human he ignores them and blows them off, but I guess plot armor and forcing melodrama is better than behaving realistically and resolving issues, what do I know? Meanwhile, despite being fondled and aroused every night by a horny succubus, the MC's relationship with the hero is stuck in blushing I can't communicate cause I'm a virgin mode. Despite the hero being the least girly person the guy must have ever met, and the MC being a PROFESSIONAL COMMUNICATOR, he can't seem to get basic getting to know you sort of chatter done. Again, I guess plot armor and forcing melodrama is better than having a consistent, realistic MC, cause then the romance plot might advance, and then we might have to deal with FBI san.

The MC is a bit of a riddle, too. The author almost seems to forget from one chapter to another who this guy is supposed to be, what his values are, and the events he's witnessed first hand that might inform him about the nature of other people he's been dealing with in the story. One thing that seems to come up with this guy over and over is that the past is the past, profit before revenge, profit before empathy, profit before obeying the law, and everyone else is a rational person seeking profit. All of which would be just fine, if the rest of the world actually behaved that way. It would even be fine if the MC could distinguish between groups and individuals that are likely to be constructive partners and those that won't actually cooperate with him. Without giving too much of the plot away, the MC is constantly teaming up with forces that have burned him and his adopted family in the past, will destroy his markets and profit in the future with their antisocial/antibusiness agendas, and seems to prefer graft, corruption and smuggling to open markets even when he is literally in the position of a government official during a famine. One minute he'll lecture an ex-soldier about how it's her fate to starve and be executed on false charges because her era is over and taking her on as a s*ave without pay is really better than she deserves, the next minute he's desperate for his hero girlfriend not to kill in self-defense because she might feel bad and its only been three insurrections and two assassination attempts from her enemies so far... I'm not sure how much of this is bad writing and how much of this reflects the nature of the Chinese POV on the nature of business and politics, maybe I'm missing some sarcasm that I have no frame of reference for beyond China's Digital Great Wall? Anyway, white knight Darwinian Libertarianism is not an easy to swallow philosophy. <<less

First off let's clarify - the protagonist has neither a succubus daughter nor a warrior-mommy. Instead, he gets sort of saddled with those two characters in the first couple of chapters by the sadistic and evil queen and sent off to some remote village in the middle of nowhere where the "warrior-mommy" (Veirya) is the lord. Veirya is sort of the hero of all humanity who kills the demon king in chapter 1.

So you can sort of see where the Release That Witch comparisons come from - both feature a... more>> transmigrated MC banished to a remote and miserable corner of the world that just begs for the MC to improve things. Sadly that's where the similarities end. Unlike in RTW, in this story the MC is pretty much powerless, what little authority he has comes from being Veirya's s*ave (since she's the hero of humanity and has all the personality of a block of wood, so she lets him talk for her a lot of the time). It's still a sort of workable premise but the problem is that Veirya's sole character trait is that she's been honed into an emotionless killing machine by years of war - she speaks in a dull and monosyllabic manner and her first instinct to solve any problem is to cut it down with her sword. Since she's now the "lord" of a territory her responsibilities have changed and her "kill everything" approach just makes her come across as a moron. A scary moron.

With that premise established most of the story is just MC desperately trying to appease Vierya, trying to stop her from randomly killing, trying to clean up the messes she leaves behind - and mostly succeeding. But at the end of the day - MC is just Veirya's s*ave. A kind of all purpose handyman she still treats like utter sh*t after the entire 60 chapters of the first volume. It's not a lot of fun to see the MCs good ideas being shut down by the scary moron and also having to read about how badly she treats him even after a whole volume of him doing nothing but cleaning up her messes.

And then... there's also the "yandere succubus". What can I say. This character exists purely for fanservice and because she's around a good 10-20% of of the wordcount is just hijinks about MC groping her boobs or smashing his face in her boobs or tripping and falling into her boobs. Basically she's just here so the author could throw in some TIDDIES. Lovely.

RTW does the whole "raising the peasant dirt farmers up out of poverty" thing 100x better than this story (since in RTW the MC is just directly the lord of the land and he can actually make the changes he wants to make) but it also doesn't have a "yandere succubus" who clings to the main character in bed every night. So, win some lose some I guess. <<less

You can only read this novel if you're a masochist. The description is too random and gives a different feeling from the actual novel, Wu Jizun I'm looking at you >_>.

The MC looks like a teenager, no, worse than that, he gets excited from people stepping onto his head. Also, he's made a s*ave and literally treated like a dog in front of a large crowd.

Overall this novel looks interesting, but the MC is so disgusting that I can only drop it.

First thing, the MC of this novel way to weak to woman, while he's cunning and smart, he's bad when it come to his feeling.

There's almost none yandere aspect so far. Story is about MC who man without power summoned in demon king castle and while try to saving demon king daughter (taking role as daughter), they become spoiler of war for the hero (which in taking role as mom later). Then the story goes on as MC try save his daughter and save the hero as mentally illness person... more>> who try become normal girl.

About character, they are good. Its only me who dislike MC attitude, who is okay being trampled as long he's save. Hero, or rather heroine are emotionless person who try become lord despite only know how to kill. The daughter so attached to MC, doubt there no lust in it.

About world building, seems no magic so far and they hunt demon with sword. Really unique as isekai with demon inside. Idk if magic introduced later since chapel things come in. Plot itself heavyweighted in how MC save trouble and relationship toward other character.

Its enjoyable and cute sometimes, but some MC attitude sometimes make me skimming a chapter. Its just not cup of my tea but I think other person who like reasonable MC are gonna have good time. 4/5 <<less

First thing I noticed after reading a review by Rand0md*ck (thank for the generous username.-.) is that it is true that reviews whom rate this 3 stars and under barely read through this and more of skimmed through the story, only highlighting the characteristics of this story and calling this all bad as if they're the chapel's knight in holy glory shit.

But the thing about this story is that it would be mediocre without the cast of characters to have ABSOLUTELY NO TRAITS like cliche typical other-world novels. But of... more>> course, this isn't the only novel with s&m, dad-con, an one-slash maiden whom knows nothing else but killing. But what got me into this story was that these weren't overly done nor rushed into it as to say what a lot of novels do.

Protagonist died> for absolutely no reason to a typically lazy reason as they're the chosen ones and said protagonist gets a very basic yet ultimately world bending ability only exclusive to him/herself/ves> goes around the world after 10 chapters. Sound familiar? Though, in this novel the protagonist is given unknowingly the knowledge of language for the convenience of the plot which I'm fine with since he can't suddenly kill people with it and r*pe everything.

This novel is one of the few stories of which I would read alongside Dungeon Defense. The protagonist knows that he has to rely on others but also knows how to make use of modern psychology. From observing his environment and picking up clues to use to his own advantage Lin (the protagonist) uses his wit in compensation of his lack of background in the new world.

Review of the story itself, of course it will have spoilers but they ain't major plot points, just those supple details that the reviewers whom rated this low doesn't give a f*ck.


The Characters ; They build up through the story flow rather than being rushed into the plot as fan service, and well, except for the heroine of humanity who, after a traumatizing event in the past, lost her empathy in order to protect those in need, are very vivid. From rebels and deserters to to record-keeper who is actually a farmer and just wants to plant his crops in peace. Every characters introduced plays a part for the next sequence of the story or is shown to let the reader know such a character exist so it doesn't seem like they where pulled up from the author's ass for one scene.

The romance is uncertain but it has shown that the Heroine seems to be expressing more emotions after Lin has repetitively told her that the war is no more and she herself said she wanted to be a normal girl despite not knowing what normal is. (How can she if she lost her empathy? After-all, empathy of ourselves and others has proved that this is one of the things that makes humans different from animals.)

The kinky stuff like the yandere is more of a physiological thing from the young succubus child as one of many offspring of a powerful and tyrannical Overlord Demon she is the weakest as her power is well... And its doubtful that her power would even work on her own kin as it has written that she was neglected and was starving. The day she realized she finally have a figure whom would take care of her (The protagonist and his modern moral against violence against children), it was the same as having a literal loving father.


One thing you have to remember is that this is a world set in black and white. The strongest rules over all. And all the characters are grey, they can be influenced by either side for their own survival as how students have to study hard to get high grades or cheat and get them without being caught.

The action is minimal as how life in the post-war would be. Scattered and raw. The most far-reach regions of the human kingdom is in famine from the army stealing the food for the war, which of course is over, yet only care about getting home rather than spending their time caring for others. Modern morals doesn't exist and everyone is alive wants to keep living. This is where the main cast is. It's a bit dark when I sum it up like that but hey, there's also light moments once they settle onto their new home.

This novel is for a more mature audience whom are tired of the power-fantasy and teenage syndrome whom are untouchable as now-a-days snowflakes, want a harem of girls fast and nose bleed rivers at every boob jiggle.

Bit late to say this but I personally enjoyed this novel and the comments between Wu Jizun and other readers under the story. ;) <<less

I would have given this a 4, but the main character can be a prude about the dumbest things. The MC practically acts as if he's allergic to women half of the time. Whenever he sees a naked woman, although they themselves think nothing of the circumstance, the MC will not fail to spill his spaghetti everywhere on the floor and soil his pants in the process while clamoring for clothes to be worn. It wouldn't be far-fetched to imagine that this guy was a Franciscan friar in his original... more>> world. This is incredibly annoying to deal with every other chapter, noone I know would start squeaming over a pair of uncovered breasts.

Other than this nuisance of a character trait, the plot does seem quite interesting, it reads much like a Kingdom Building novel set in a other-world fantasy. If the main character grows some balls anytime soon I might bump up the rating but for god's sake, can we just get over this trope already? Grown men cowering in front of a woman's body, these MC's obviously need testosterone therapy with how spineless they are. <<less

Basically MC starts as a nobody but uses his wits to rise in power. He doesn’t fit the role of the OP hero but instead the cunning strategist. Kind of like a Sima Yi, Zhuge Liang, Zhou Yu or Lu Su, from Romance of the Three Kingdoms.

There is an interesting dynamic between three main characters. MC shows flashes of keen intelligence but possesses neither physical prowess or political/economic backing, warrior girl has physical prowess and has backing as a lord but is initially completely naive (/witless), megalomaniac queen is also... more>> keenly intelligent but also is, well, a ruthless sadistic megalomaniac (literally seeks apotheosis). Every character needs the other’s help in order to achieve their goals/survive. In the latest couple of chapters you get to see not only how skilled the MC is but at the same time his deceitfulness and ruthlessness.

his actions include leading on an elvish heroine who is in love with him and instigating an elvish massacre between two warring factions to accomplish his own goals — the elvish heroine becomes heartbroken and is forced into killing her brother for the good of the elves


The MC’s “opponents” are all nicely fleshed out, providing sympathetic backstories and motivations, and have their own appropriately clever schemes in motion.

Nothing is sugarcoated—-there are no perfect schemes where its “good” vs “evil” and good wins bad loses the end. Instead, there are quite a lot of negative consequences in choices MC has to make and they are all reflected in the world. Relationships are broken, people are cruelly injured or killed/massacred.

There are romance elements, they’re there to drive the MCs actions, and add some of that romance fan service which helps to balance some of the darker aspects. Because this stuff gets dark, and not edgy bs dark (“the world betrayed me so I’m now the antihero getting my revenge on everybody”) but MC convinces heroine she has to cause her own death to save her ideals dark. <<less

Although the novel doesn't deserve the five stars rating, here I am anyway, just to show my appreciation towards the translator and the story itself.

Despite my opening remark, this novel isn't bad by any stretch of the word. It definitely belongs somewhere in the lower four stars tier. Honestly I was initially put off by the bad reviews and thanks to the suspect if not tr*shy title I stayed away................... but boredom is hell of a drug. And I must say the adage "never judge a book by its cover"... more>> proves itself to be true yet again. I'm glad I picked this up. If you can get past the loli dad-con fantasy and the cringe-inducing descriptions of early-stage masochism gimmicks that understandably may drive people away--- this is a decent novel.

I won't give up too much of the story. But it's basically a story about two women with a complex borne out of their familial (or perhaps especially daddy) issues that happened to bump into each other in the most unfortunate circumstances. And the slow realisation that the two are more similar than meets the eye. The MC is there to resolve their issues and help them grow. The enjoyment in this story lies in watching that process comes into play--- that growth. Of course it is going to be a slow story. It's a story about a man helping two people develop.

I suspect there's also more of the MC than meets the eye too. Not much is given about him up until this point but given the weigh of his views I believe the author had some interesting back story to tell in the future. I am looking forward to seeing what direction the novel is going to take in the future. <<less

The story is really interesting and character development in storyline is realy good so im telling you guys dont judge a book by its cover, at least read more than 20th chapter then decide. And im sure you will not get disappointed.

So dont pay attention to those reviews that said this novel is not good because they just read 2-3 chapter at most.
