Tondemo Skill de Isekai Hourou Meshi


Links are NOT allowed. Format your description nicely so people can easily read them. Please use proper spacing and paragraphs.

Mukouda Tsuyoshi, summoned from modern Japan to a different world of sword and magic.

He thought of what kind of a huge adventure was waiting for him, but actually, Mukouda is just a civilian who got caught in a 『Hero Summoning』!!

And that Mukouda’s base status shabby compared to the legitimate heroes(There’s even three of them!)……

On top of that, the king who summoned Mukouda and the rest were suspicious, and Mukouda left the castle by himself realizing 「Ah, this is the type that heroes would only be used」.

The only thing that Mukouda could rely on in this world is his unique skill 『Net Supermarket』――it can only order goods from modern Japan to the different world.

“It is not for combat, but if I use it properly, I might have no trouble living?”, Mukouda thought lightly, but actually――he found out that the modern「food」that he ordered would display ridiculous effects!

On top of that, ridiculous guys who were attracted by a different world’s food gathers……?!!

This is the single most frustrating novel I have ever read. Main character is a pu**y and I mean a huge one. I dont care if the MC is cowardly, I can understand it, you are thrown into a new world and you are afraid of fighting. But this is too much, MC is partnered with the strongest beast in the world, can power level all he wants because Fenrir can make a barrier that protects him from everything, aside from the Ancient Dragon, and he is still scared sh*ttless... more>> when he is forced to fight, even when he is not attacked, he is scared! I can understand once or twice, but as the novel progresses he becomes more of a coward. There is no using wits to succeed, he can basically sell things from his unique skill and things Fenrir catches so there is nothing in that department either. This is just a novel about a gutless chicken who cooks for monsters and waits for them to do everything for him. If Fenrir wasnt here, MC would have died, because he would be too scared to walk on the streets. It was just a giant cringefest all around, the only upside is that the monsters are awesome, if something changes Ill pick it up again, but till then, I dont wanna see this novel again. <<less

I usually don't go for isekai slice of life stories but this one I actually enjoy since it's not just a lump of pervy wish fulfillment involving a harem consisting of at least one beaskin slave. It's mainly just about a guy travelling and cooking while accompanied by his op familiars. I especially enjoy moster tamer genres so that's a plus. All in all a good slice of life isekai without all the overly force harem/romance shinanigans. I mean, I enjoy those genres too but not if it's super forced... more>> and the heroines are alll one dimensional like they usually are. <<less

I'll be honest, the synopsis spins a greater story than what is actually presented, within 17 short chapters I have learned more about boar meat than actual world building.

The "outrageous skill which has incredible powers" so far has only show itself to be able to purchase regular stuff like water and spices, not that it matters, the MC hardly uses it aside from buying a few things and even then there's barely any interesting element at play when the MC uses it.

The world itself is rather lacking, there's magic, skills,... more>> weapon mastery, etc but nobody actually uses it (except MC but sparingly) and interactions with the world are kept to a bare minimal except when it comes to trivial matters, the world is just as one dimensional as the characters.

Aside from the horrendous use of grammar the worst offender is the amount of pointless dribble that is inserted into the chapter as if the author was a novice taxidermist who pushed far too much stuffing to distract you on the horrible quality of work.

After a certain characters comes into the story its quickly hijacked by food segments in each chapter, the segments are usual half a chapter long (give or take) the quality however is S**t, here's a segment of the "fine" segment.


"... But there is no rice

Rice would make it better

I... forgot completely

This, would be the best with rice"


In conclusion this isn't a novel so much as a half baked writing assessment, there was definitely potential in the concept but whether it was laziness or lack of skill this is definitely something that is not worth your time. <<less

I have read until latest chapter. 'Gourmet Adventure of Legendary Tamer ' is correct tittle for this novel. With more than 30% chapter is about cooking magical beast meat. If you like gourmet MC look like you will like this novel

It is... pretty rough. The language is stilted, which while a function of the translation, is also largely because of the original work. (BTW, the yAmi translation is superior) The phrasing and flow are terrible - it starts and stops, leaps and lurches. This was written in almost a "stream of consciousness" style, (like Kuma Kuma Bear) but I can only describe this as akin to "mental Diarrhea". To compare this to Wordmaster is frankly an insult to Wordmaster, as this is a Mary Sue (Brainy, sees-the-truth-of-the-world, and utterly... more>> Hax Powered) in every sense with no inkling of struggle or development. Furthermore, it's clear that the setting and the characters are only there as window dressing - they serve as scenery for the MC to shine against. There is no sense of agency, no sense of individuality when it comes to characters.

If you want cooking magical animals, look for something else. It really isn't that kind of work IMHO. It's much like how in Shield Hero there was a merchant era that quickly was developed out of, this feels like a transition stage.

Basically if you like the "Modern Conveniences stomp over generic fantasy world" and "Protagonist can do no wrong" genres, and either have enough brain damage, or more likely the "Bad (fan) fic induced Brain Damage Resistance" trait leveled up to 4/10, you should be fine.

I'll wait until the arcs fully form before putting a true rating down, but for now, it's a provisional 2/5. <<less

A business oriented skill is given to a thickheaded MC without any business sense, innovation, or knowledge of abusing/playing economical policies.. Literally the worst skill for someone as dense as the MC to use.

With the power to generate food, goods, clothing, and weapons out of nothing using a magic skill that runs off of money, The MC wants to leave a country that will be plagued by war, starvation, and lack of goods...

Come on! This guy is seriously a businessman??? that's like sending a Christmas card in August...

The MC and... more>> his way of doing things is generally disappointing.. <<less

Laid-back slice-of-life story about the travels of a Fenrir and his personal chef.

Seriously, though, the protagonist is a normal person in every way - the only talent he seems to have is above average but not professional cooking ability. His personality, strength, intelligence, and common sense are actually normal. And people react well to his cooking mainly because he uses great ingredients.

... more>>

Even the food from the "real world" that he brings over is mostly good because it gives stat boosts to people eating it. It gives the kind of rush people describe when they dope up on stimulants, so of course adventurers and battle maniacs like Fel would like it.


And while the protagonist doesn't have the motivation to carry an action/adventure storyline, he at least reacts like the adult he is and thinks things through. He also shows interest in the world around him, so he doesn't need other people to force him to act. I really get the "innocent bystander" feeling from this guy more than any other "accidental" summonings of people who just so happened to have really eccentric personalities and adapt extremely well to the new world. Yeah, this protagonist can't carry the novel by himself. But he doesn't have to - he'll gain fun and quirky pets and acquaintances.

And the characters become more interesting and likeable as the story goes on. The setting gets more interesting the more you learn, too, and there are action scenes here and there, but the heart of the story is still basically watching a dog owner spend time with his (very) large, (way too) energetic dog. As a slice of life, 5/5 would mofu mofu the Fenrir again recommend. <<less

It's a very common plot that could qualify as a sub-genre. The whole other world hero summons mix-up/innocent bystander plot, also that the nobles are really selfish tyrants is very "in" these days with all the angst ridden emo gritty re-boat nonsense. Seems to me some readers aren't satisfied unless the author doesn't fan service you like an adolescent constantly wanking off or your protag is a blood soaked revenge driven murderer. So this is refreshingly different in that way. No pervert fan service, no bloody emo killer, no massive... more>> dramas, no forced romantic cliche slave girl/bimbo. It's a slice of life, a man and his canine going on an adventure with him cooking lots of meals along the way. The protag is a sensible guy who actively avoids unnecessary trouble. Someone you could relate to as a real life reaction to a crazy situation. All in all, if you like slice of life genre or even cooking stories it's worth a read. <<less

Mukouda works as chef, baggage carrier, and human liaison to his 3 overpowered monster companions. Occasionally he talks with gods, and sends them sweets, food, and alcohol on a weekly basis, and they give him stuff like Blessings for him and companions, or a Skill, or a useful tool. He's also been amassing more money than he knows what to do with, or what even the author knows what do with. Side characters are amusing enough, but it's mostly just slice-of-life, and no major plot developments.

General spoilers:

... more>>

Besides Fer and Sui, they're later joined by a mini-dragon (Dora-chan) that just as much a battle maniac as Fer and as much a food lover as the rest of them. Mukouda gets minor Blessings from the Fire and Earth goddesses, Sui gets a normal Blessing from the Water Goddess and the Blacksmith God. Fer and Dora get Blessings from the War God. Wind and Water Goddesses like snacks, Earth Goddess like beauty products, and Fire, War, Blacksmith Gods get varied types of alcohol. Also, the male gods granted him an Absolute Defense and Double Experience skill, because he can expand the shopping choices of Net Supermarket skill as he levels up, and if he died they'd miss out on the goodies he could give them. Despite that, MC is relatively weak in magic and combat terms, but with how absurdly powerful his familiars are it doesn't really matter. The male gods also put together a Divine artifact that allows them to stamp weapons (or themselves) in order to fight undead so they'd have an easier time in one dungeon.

At one point the Creator God finds out how much all the other gods have been bothering Mukouda with requests for otherworld stuff, and makes them go a month without otherworld food, drinks, and beauty products. After Mukouda thanks him with some sake, the Creator God gives him a (small) Blessing which affects his lifespan, so he'll probably live another 1000 years or so. Now he's sending offerings to 4 goddess and 3 gods, but it's more on his terms.

MC has a side-business with otherworld beauty products, which is fairly lucrative but hardly necessary, since the monster materials from the random things they hunt in the wild and in dungeons are both plentiful, rare enough, and high quality that Adventurer Guilds are limited financially in how much they can actually buy from him. Still, now he has a mansion with a couple families to work there and on his side business and guards to protect his estate.

If you're curious about the 3 teenagers he got summoned with, they realized they were in a honey trap, but one had already had a slavery bracelet placed on her. Fortunately, that hand got cut off and they all escaped together to another country, and the three got married, and one of the gods was nice enough to subtly guide them to a dungeon chest with a weak elixir to regrow her arm, along with some money. I can imagine the MC sending them a care package later, but he's not especially concerned about their goings-on.

A really worthy novel to read.

The MC is not OP and he has help from an OP character which is not human which makes it interesting and funny.

I like how the author cares for cooking details. I was drooling reading the cooking part 🤤

There is also a manga version of this, definitely check it out 😉 I got hooked with this novel because of the manga, but the novel is also pretty well translated 😆

Don't expect anything great from this novel. This is just a simple, light hearted story about a guy who has a so very convenient skill in another world.

I am not a good reviewer, I'll just state the obvious. The story is pretty laid back, and will only continue slowly, I read to chapter 32 and I'm not sure if the novel is progressing or not. It just felt like they're happily, leisurely spent their time.

I am not a cook, or gourmet, and I don't really like or hate the cooking... more>> description in the novel although I feel that it's rough.

Well, read this novel if you have some useless time to spend, really, don't expect anything great from this novel. <<less

Not impressed by the setting, it seems a rip-off from konjiki no wordmaster and the writing style also doesn't seem all that great. Still, it's only the first chapter and the translator has done a wonderful job (it doesn't look like MTL at all) so I'll stick with it for a few more chapters.

I'm writing this after reading Chapter 12. Despite the slow pace, the story is really starting to move along. He's gained his first familiar. From the cover art, I can see that he'll encounter probably at least one more. He's dual registering with the merchant guild and the adventurer guild because his pet brings back high-quality prey for him to cook and the leftovers can be sold to the adventurer guild. I think this story has a ton of potential.

The translator just announced that they are dropping the series,... more>> though. Guess, this is another could-have-been, unless it's picked up. <<less

I say this about a lot of LN stories, but this story has potential.

MC is op in the sense that he could break the world's economy, and the giant mythical wolf that follows him is the OP 'power' which also gets him valuable goods that have nothing to do with his own powers.

The writing is better than other stories i've read; I just hope the translator comes back. Will edit for a more detailed review later when more chapters come out, but for now I would recommend this only to... more>> people that are patient enough to wait for more releases. <<less

Food, and getting hungry and an interesting spin on isekais, just like the manga dungeon meshi where the focus is food, and a nice take on repeating plots. I recommend this solely because its different and feels fun despite being a short read

If you like summoned to a different world setting, maybe you will like this, I guess I can compare the story to shield hero-sama, but mellow type story and different kind of skills, I was also imagining that this might be a the different alternate and multiverse of shield hero-sama if you already finish the story of that you would understand it, the story is kind of slice of life, just like satou-san life including his food adventures, and yes the MC is kinda OP but not that totally OP... more>> that he can one punch the monster, one he has is a skill summoning different kind of foods and somehow he attracts OP monster. So if youre interested please do so read this novel I guarantee it that you will like. Also I guess I am a bit of bias about it but I kinda like the manga more because the setup of it is really same with the novel. Hopefully this will continue and will attract more people. <<less
