Honesty I don't like the premis so far because it makes the MC look completely incompetent and OK with it.

It's probably funny but the only way I would be laughing is if the MC gets killed because of his delusions and we get to follow the other characters afterwards.

Now that would be light novel gold right there.

understand some aspects of his wits, that comes to him naturally. Interesting suppor characters. Worthy to reading plot. Overall - recomended to read

The main flaw of this web novel, is it's lack of connection to the world and environment that is being presented. For example in the second chapter there is a scene that deals with bandits. Now the environment presented is an abandoned village. Nothing wrong with that. However, there is no description of the abandoned village. So you have no idea what the houses look like, or what the ground looks like. All your left with is the name abandoned village, you don't even have a barebones idea of what... more>> it looks. Same exact problem with the bandit. Hell, there is even a bandit called Boss A, and he blank discription. The author didn't even bother to give him some cliche scars on his eye.

The characters suffer the same things as mention above about the world and environment.

Grammatically, the translator and editor did fine. I didn't see any glaring grammar flaw. So they did their job well enough.

In conclusion, it's not very good. The author really needs to learn what show don't tell is. Though, do take into consideration that these are the first five chapters. So things may improve, but these are glaring flaws. I'll probably continue to read, for the hell of it. I wasn't bored when reading, and it seemed to be fun. <<less
