So the praising japan is a misunderstanding I believe. Lista states she likes choosing from Japan because it’s filled with otaku and telling them they have been summoned to a new world with magic and sh*t isn’t a new concept to them. This is the same concept as making a non gamer play a new game. If you give your mom a Xbox controller and told her to play something she would have no idea what to do and it would take time to just get used to controls, but... more>> if you give it to a gamer they would instantly adapt and you wouldn’t need that learning curve.

telling a Japanese otaku they we summoned to a new world vs telling a normal person from South Africa is the same concept. I’m not from South Africa but if I was a gambling man I would put my money on them not reading Isekai novels as much as Japanese people. <<less

I’ve seen the manga and now I can read the LN too?? Exciting

the premise is nothing extraordinary and pretty common but the way they handle each world like a stage level in game is pretty unique and also usually in every troops the protagonist is just a normal man who gets cheat level power but this time the authors actually made this protagonist handsome, it’s ordinary yet unique as well LOL.... im waiting for further chapters release

I couldn't read past chapter 2. It was one of those where the author praises Japanese people, but this one was just so blatant in it's intent..

"I decided to summon a Japanese person because they are brave..... second time I summoned an indigenous person from South Africa. It took about one full month for him understand how this system works."

The first sentence of that quite just.. you can already tell it's one of those novels.

I myself am not from South Africa, but this quote just adds on to the assumptions... more>> that African people are not intelligent.

Overall, I'm sure the story has a great plot and idea but for me it's a bit too much. <<less

The premise is fairly interesting. It's about a borderline paranoid, over-prepared hero isekai'd into a world with an almost impossible to clear final boss. Furthermore, the entire story is told from the perspective of the ditzy goddess who summons the hero. The narrative breaks a lot of the usual tropes right out of the gate, with actually competent and cruel villains and a hero who prepares ahead of time and makes battle plans and strategies well in advance, only moving when he is sure of his victory. Unfortunately, there is... more>> one huge problem that drags this story into the mud, and it's the fact that this is allegedly a comedic series.

This story is like as if I actually tried to write something filled with horrible mood-whiplashes on purpose for a dare or something. The characters are also either annoying, inconsistent, or both, which also stems from the fact that the author more often than not makes their characterization turn on a dime for "jokes", which usually either relate to over-the-top perverse situations that are so off-the-wall they are hard to call fanservice, or incredibly low-brow humiliation, gross-out and slapstick comedy. As in, one of the main running jokes of the story (and the one the author probably found the funniest, as it is re-used ad nauseum) is about the goddess' pubic hair and how it is used to synthetize weapons.

These glaring flaws are then made even worse by the terrible worldbuilding, the frantic pacing, the repetitive structure of the plot, the sudden switches between screeching idiot-comedy and brutal scenes straight out of a horror series, and worst of all, the fact that none of the characters are actually likeable. They might be intriguing for a while, but the pacing never allows them to develop, the "comedy" never allows them to be consistent, and after reaching the end of the first volume, I found myself unable to actually care about what happens to them. The author keeps insisting that there is camaraderie there, that the hero is just a tsundere and not a full-blown sociopath, that the goddess isn't just an insufferable idiot, that the two followers are more than just wooden planks designed to react to the hero's deeds and praise him, but I don't see it, and I don't care about any of them. So there, so yes, the Eight Deadly Words are in full effect for me.

And as for the final nail, not even the setting or the side characters are interesting. The good guys are absolutely incompetent caricatures. They entrust a vital mission on a world where the boss is capable of killing gods for real to an untested newbie goddess. 90%of the named gods and goddesses we see in the story are not only incompetent idiots with the mental age of a child, but even their strongest can only defeat a enemy summoned by a secondary villain by using a self-sacrificing super-move, only to survive because of loophole abuse. Oh, and that super-move of absolute destruction? The final boss of the first arc can simply shrug it off, meaning that if he managed to go to the god's realm, they would be f*cked. If the gods are so bloody incompetent, it baffles the mind how they even exist.

On the other hand, the villains are really competent, attacking the hero right when he arrives to the world, creating minions he shouldn't logically be able to defeat, destroying his heroic equipment ahead of time, and forcing him to play by their rules. This would normally be an amazing plus, but unfortunately instead it becomes another flaw because of two reasons: since they are so competent, the hero defeating them more often than not comes down to plot-armor and powerup-reveals, which actually dents his character as a crazy-prepared schemer. More importantly though, all of these seemingly interesting characters suffer from a glaring lack of characterization and context. We don't know their goals, their grievances, why they would be willing to sacrifice themselves and their loved ones to defeat the hero... they are just mustache-twirling villains of the week who get defeated and discarded, only for the plot to immediately move on to the next in line. Seriously, I was more interested in the villains in this series than the unlikable, irritating "good guys".

In conclusion, I gave this story two stars for the early amusement I got out of the premise and the first few chapters, but I honestly cannot recommend it to anyone in good conscience. <<less

At first I thought this was a mere comedy novel, where the punchline was the protagonist's overly careful behavior. However, after reading further into the novel I have come to appreciate the great storytelling ability of the author. I came for the comedic interactions, and stayed for the story. I would highly recommend this novel to others.

Overall it is a better story than most Isekai out there.

Mainly because the MC has an actual personality to speak of, even if he's a douchebag. But that's better than your usual Isekai protagonist whom are basically just Self Inserts with Japanese names. At the very least you'll remember this guy.

The key factor you need to remember is that this is definitely a gag Isekai. The entire plot will be made out of punchlines and jokes and if you don't like this kind of thing, you're better of not reading.

I... more>> heard it's also getting an anime, and so far the manga is pretty decent too. Honestly those will probably be much better than the current translations, though I do think we should be happy somebody picked this up in the first place. <<less

I like this series. It's a fun read, the protagonist being too cautious even though he's overpowered and being absolutely irreverent of the gods is very amusing and overall, it's a good light novel. The translation quality is also pretty good, apart from the occasional minor spelling mistake. Atleast till where I've read. Can only wait for more.

The thing is, the execution was done so badly. Yes, I know the twist. But the problem is you technically need to be spoiled of the twist in order to try and appreciate this. And I think that's where it failed. You'd have to slog through all that mud just to get to a decent story.

But if you weren't spoiled then you wouldn't think it worth it at all. I still don't think it's worth slogging through all of that.

Take note of Chekov's Gun. It means if a gun is... more>> showed in one chapter, it should be fired on the next chapter. Meaning, there's some foreshadowing or hint.

Here? Nah. You get shot and then see the gun. <<less

As far as the concept is concerned, it is incredibly ingenious to think up of a story where the protagonist in the isekai is overly cautious. Breaking multiple layers of many isekai tropes; showing its own self awareness by saying thing like: we only pick japanese coz they're quick to adapt; the demons giving the MC no time to train or prepare himself (probably the most logical antagonist ever) ; the MC, though being overly cautious when his stats was higher, runs when an enemy overpowered him even when he's... more>> 20% or 50% has higher stats than them. A lot about this doesn't seems to be something that an isekai, or a shounen, protagonist would've done.

With all that said, the MC appears more logical than "overly cautious". It wouldn't be strange to call the title a click bait. And despite being a comedy, this series is actually a lot darker than you would think. There are some scenes, or an element of a story where you would wonder, "wait, I thought this was a comedy isekai so why am I seeing some sh*t that I would normally see in Berserk?!". Some scenes were even more lewd than it should've been with the milk lactation, full on nudity scenes, hair from private parts, and possibly some NTR if you ship goddess and Seiya together lmao. And I swear, the god of death - I think that's what she was called, the one with chains for her clothes - dressed like a character that you would normally see in a hentai. Imagine only cover your nips and your crotch, that's how she dressed herself. I was doubtful at first when I saw the description in the light novel, but seeing her in the anime opening solidifies the image that I had of her.

And my thoughts on the Goddess... Well she's certainly too emotional and annoying, playing the role of a character that gives a punchline to a comedy, while Seiya is like "facts don't care about your feelings", playing the role of the comedian. I could see why people would compare her with Aqua from Konosuba.

Additionally, Seiya, our stoic hero, isn't the main protagonist of this story. If you want to refute this, then I would agree with whatever you have to say except for one reason: you can't be expecting the protagonist of the story to be like a side character when we're always in the Goddess' point of view. He also has no inner monologue as well. Normally, a protagonist would always have more inner monologue than any character in their own show, but for this one he has none. Even when he undergo his training, we never get to see what's happening unless the Goddess were also there. You could say that the series is breaking the trope of making the MC the hero and instead make that the goddess' role instead, the person who summoned the hero from another world.

With all that said, the overly cautious hero is definitely not suited to be call a comedy series by normal standard. It's a comedy series, however, with the overly excessive violence, perversion, and dark themes, it's literally a borderline comedy/f*cked up (in a good sense) series.

Do I hate this series because of that? No. I fact, I personally enjoyed this alot. I may had binge read through half of volume 1 and drop it for a couple of weeks, but I came back to finish reading the entire thing.

You guys should definitely check the manga out too. They actually made that way funnier than the anime adaptation of the light novel and much of how the comedy was translated in the light novel itself. This is because of how amazing the comedic visuals are in the manga in comparison to the anime. It's way better than every other source material from this series, to those that doesn't really like this series just from reading the light novel, trust me, check the manga out. For anime, it's the voice acting, and at times, the animation does come into play here. Though, still not better than the manga. <<less

This story needs to be taken out behind the barn and shot, then burned and lastly buried. This author does not fully understand what the term "overly-cautious" even means. It does mean that the MC should be overly-prepared, but it should also mean that the MC is also overly-cautious with how he speaks and especially with who he is speaking to. Overly-cautious DOES NOT mean being an a**hole, either with words or actions. It is without fail that the main reason the anime industry is failing is because garbage stories... more>> like these keep being chosen instead of actual well written ones. <<less

I was Introduced to this novel by it's anime adaptation.

The anime was good. The best that I liked about the anime was it's comedy and that interested me to search for the original novel to get ahead of the anime. I am an impatient person and tend to read ahead by reading the novels whenever I like a anime.

Now about that novel, I would like to say that it's great but sadly I was disappointed. This is just not the novel for me.

The novel starts of the usual with the... more>> MC summoned to save the world but with a twist of him being too cautious, the title seems great but sadly the story is not up to the title standards. Powerful characters lose their value as the story progresses and useless characters gain more value. The scale of the operation of the saving worlds by summoning heroes does support the actions and personalities of the gods and goddesses, if I have to give an example its like a historical multi trillion dollar company with centuries of background with its original founder and managers still running the company but when the MC is involved the founder and managers are just toddlers that are not even able to suck their thumbs without the MC.

If the story had gone differently such as if the MC was summoned the save the world but there were no contact with the gods and god realm and there was no love interest at the very beginning of the story, then with the MC's personality still intact it would have a novel worth reading.

The concept of a cautious MC is great but how that was applied to story was a disaster. <<less

the series is good. Yes, the author praises Japanese people.. in very... Err... straight way>> but who cares; people tends to love their own country (every people does; just read some novel of other countries) >> and it is only done in chap 0 but... if u read n think about it, the author might not necessarily be "actually" praising (being an otoku=praising?? lol and it's hurting me too ☹) and this is corrected in the Anime so check it out, it's very funny and is INMO one of the best anime series in this season👑 (although only 1 episode is out for now haha I am already hooked) 😎
The MC is super cool, some may say that he is overly caution (well he is but it's better... more>> than those overly hotblooded type>>
Spoiler

well... he too was a hot-headed person too but something happened which changed him* well~ the hotblooded youth may not be him* don't understand then just read the dame novel

[collapse]

As for the Fish-man fans out there (if u read the novel U will understand), that dame Fish-man deserve it!! (>>I love Fish-man too ya know❤️❤️ but the Fish-man is annoying and very irritating so yeah, Seiya does the right thing🤣 and its's cute that way>>sadistic side of mine🔪lol)

Anyways the series is good and worth a shot of your (just my opinion😊) <<less

This story should have been good or even entertaining if it was done right but it wasnt even remotely close.

I got bored by chapter 19, I read the manga which is probably the main reason any of us are here. They both start off potentially interesting but the main character is a boring piece of sh*t and we got another overused cliche dumb goddess.

I feel like we have all read a story like this that was better in every way.

The premise sounds funny, but honestly the comedy aspect is the one thing that turned me off. This story follows conventional route at making its female lead as comedic-relief. Dumb goddess who makes wrong judgement, dumb, useless, and deserves to get hit by the hero. It makes me quite upset. Not because of how dumb the she is, but because how unfair the she gets treated, especially by the hero.

However, things are much better when the story takes itself seriously. I think it's very wise decision of the author to... more>> make Ristarte (the goddess) the narrator instead of Seiya (the hero). Seiya is an interesting hero, but won't make an interesting story-teller because he is too efficient, level-headed, and well-prepared.

With Ristarte's narration, we can see how weird Seiya is from normal standard. Also, the story is able to provide the emotional aspect that may become non-existent if told by Seiya's point of view.

And I just love how surprisingly well-written Ristarte's inner turmoil is. Everytime she cried, I cried. I hope Seiya will treat her much better. Other characters keep addressing his special concern for her and sometimes his harsh wording and action can be interpreted differently. But those scenes are still far less to my liking.

Overall, I see a room for development and I really hope it happens in the future. So, I rate this 3.7/5 for now. <<less

First, only read this when you want to read an anti-cliche webnovel. If you are not that kind of reader, then it is likely you will think this novel is bad.

Second, for overall, the web novel is pretty good. It depicts a decent world with decent laws on its own without making many plot holes. The plot is very well thought as well. You have an interesting duo who are completely opposite of each other adventuring to save the world in hardest mode. This breaks many tropes since most isekai... more>> is about living easy in another world because the MC is OP.

The problem comes from the third, execution. The jokes and the interactions keep being repeated, which may bore you from c15. If you can keep up with it, there comes another problem, the character development. Instead of making the characters better throughout the story, the author made them worse. I understand why many people rate it one star, you don't want a story where your character becomes worse from time to time, right? The execution for character development is good, but not great. It may justify for me, but it probably annoys many people.

Spoiler

The hero is not over cautious, he is a control freak. Imagine you make an extreme control freak as a hero for your story, yeah it is that bad. In return, the goddess is too carefree. This leads to many tragedies since the carefree attitude puts them in danger, which increases the the extreme of control freak of the hero. The goddess also never reflects on her mistakes which makes her annoying, which is bad because she is the MC as well. If that keeps happen, the control freak may reach its peak and explode, which is also in the novel in later chapter. From then on, it is very hard to keep reading because now both the MC is bad. Ofcourse, they have the side characters to balance the atmospheres and the tones, but with poor execution, both MC still leaves a bad taste to the readers, explaining why people keeps ditching this novel.

[collapse]

Fourth, the interactions between things in that world is good. However, it breaks the tropes and the tone of the novel is always strong and harsh, the interaction may become too extreme in lots of situation.

In the nutshell, if you want a novel having its own identity, a little bit slow paced and anti-tropes, this may piche your interest. Well, only if you get through the character development first then.

Edit: I saw many people rates the novel bad because 'the goddess is a bitch, dumb, etc'. It is quite understandable because, as I stated, their attitude is always in extreme, and with no characters having capabilities to balance the tones of stories, they become annoying. <<less

I really don't sit quite well with how he's treating Lista. Yes it's partly her fault opening the portal but he's at fault too when confusion status hits him. If he's really cautious he should have thought about it from the start when Lista mess with the portal. Blaming it all on her is just tyranny. Yes she may be incompetent but she did try to stop him. The reason why she was punished is because of him too. Hopefully Lista got killed in the end because of him and... more>> make him regret for causing her death twice. <<less
