Ultimate Porter ~The Weakest Man Aspires to be an Adventurer~


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

Miyata Ippei’s status when thrown into another world was just terrible. He only has 8 points in his HP while his Attack and Defense is 3 and 5 points respectively. He can’t use any attack magic and if he engaged in a fight then the instant death status is sure to be unavoidable. His recovery magic and crafting skills, however, were prominent. This is the man who aspires to be an adventurer more than anyone.

I thought I'd write a review as a balance to some of the others.

People are taking this novel way more seriously than the novel is taking itself. It is a pure light fluff comedy and is not pretending to be anything else. In the 2nd chapter, the author calls out the cliche of randomly meeting a beautiful woman and rolls with it. The author also calls out other cliches and rolls with them as well. It does not take itself seriously.

Some reviewers are projecting there own biases and expectations on... more>> it when it was never going to deliver right from the start. One reviewer puts the only way to enjoy it is to take it as a comedy but they couldn't as they had high hopes for it. Sorry to say but you had the wrong expectations. It is a comedy (it is even tagged as one) and that is what the author is writing. You are supposed to enjoy it as a comedy. If you are looking for an edgelord MC and a crap sack world full of politics and intrigue you are out of luck.

The MC is broken in one area (he is a crafting god) but broken the other way in that his HP, defence etc are so low they are roughly on the level of a child or maybe even a bit lower. He gets hugged and loses 2 HP. He only has 8 to begin with. He could probably make a spaceship with a functioning warp drive but if a child kicked him too hard he risks dying.

He is not dense when it comes to love. He is aware and acts accordingly which is not a common trait for Japanese MC's as I'm sure most people are aware.

All told, this is a fun little romp. Is it a literary masterpiece that will echo throughout the ages? No, of course not, but it's not trying to be. It's a turn off your brain and enjoy novel. <<less

As said, this is pretty light fluff with a OP main character who is OP in the wrong direction (manufacturing instead of combat). The guy makes a thing, sells it to an impressed noble for hundreds of thousands of gold, relaxes in an expensive inn, eats the best food, and then runs off to a dungeon to probably die horribly and stupidly.

What's more odd is that the author seems to be trying to talk him out of it.

The following is me paraphrasing, but this does happen in the story:

Say cute... more>> girl, why do you want to be an adventurer, risking your life, and most likely dying in a dungeon?

Girl: Because my family is poor, and if I don't do this they'll starve to death.

I see. Say little girl, who's clearly starving and looks like just skin and bones, why do you want to be an adventurer?

Little Girl: Because I'm hungry! It's either this or selling myself into prostitution.

Oh my. Say mister Main Character who looks well-fed, healthy, and rich, why do YOU want to be an adventurer?

Main Character: Because............... I wanna?

Well gee, what a well-thought-out reason you have there, mister Main Character. <<less

A pretty good wish fulfillment story set on easy mode. Translation is decent, and while the storyline is predictable and challenges are a bit too trivial, it's still doing a good job as light entertainment.

EDIT: Probably dropping this after ch31. It's still decent, with good translation, but the authors naming sense is so irritating that I can't take the dialog at all seriously. (Ex: Coke, Cherrycoke, Cork, and Oolongtea, so far)

Add the brainless decisions by the MC, and even if I prefer crafting novels to mindless grindfests, this... more>> doesn't have enough value to continue. I may rebinge after a hundred chapters, but probably not. : ( <<less

Ultimate Porter has lots of growing pains, i.e. the pacing and plot is all over the place at the beginning but if you stay with it, it gets great... kinda similar to Death March.

In particular, stay with it past the undead floor and the great slice of life adventures kicks into high gear and the MC really starts to use his cheats creatively.

Yes, even with Chrome translation, it's surprisingly coherent.

It's the common isekai plot. Beta JP male gets transfered to a world of magic with a cheat ability.

This cheat, though, is only for crafting and he is pitifully weak in battle. And so far he keeps being weak for 40 chapters with no breakthough in sight.

Girls keep popping from everywhere and falling in love with him for no reason as usual. The only thing this MC got going for him is that he is a little less dense and can understand that a girl is in love with him... more>> and reciprocate or turn her down. That being said the romance bloomed too fast and weirdly.

For a while I though he was going towards a iron-man or mecha route in this magic - medieval setting and was quite excited, but these 40 chapters have turned me down. The way he uses the crafting to overcome his weakness are just meh: Golens and guns.

Anyways, this is a too standard harem isekai novel that everyone knows about with very little variation. You probably already know what to expect.

For me it's a good waste of time by going in with low standards. Isekais are a guilty pleasure of mine, after all. <<less

TLDR: It was great! I dont see what all the fuss is about..

I haven't the foggiest idea why this has such bad reviews. I thoroughly enjoyed the novel, or what has been written so far. The MC isn't your typical dense to romance archetype. He actually has common sense! What a concept! I find myself facepalming all the time otherwise. I also got a few chuckles out of this novel, which is nice. (Hard to do)

The MC knows he has garbage basic stats, which haven't been thoroughly explained yet,... more>> but he tries to live the adventure life regardless. Some people question this motivation and cannot fathom a person willing to put themselves in harm's way willingly. Especially since he doesn't really need to. From a certain perspective I can understand that, but you can't just explain away a man's romance. There are many of those, but one happens to be being an adventurer in another world of magic and fantasy.

The leveling system is decent. Which is what brought me here in the first place. So far I don't see the MC becoming a god in the near future. Which is apparently rare in this genre. Although he is already almost like one from the start I guess.. In a way. You will get what I mean if you read it.

I don't know why this has gotten such low ratings, but I really hope it gains traction and people gravitate towards it in the future.

I am really thankful to the author and the translators for the story. Thank you. <<less

@Brave Armadillo

Well, it's understandable how you came to view it that the MC doesn't have a well-thought reason to be an adventurer.

There are similar things that are happening in the real world too. E.g Someone that decided to smoke, take drugs, drink alcohol. [All these things, could kill them but they decided to take it anyway.] There can be various reason why they do it but in MC case, it is because he read too many novels from the previous world that he is in. Thus, even though he knows... more>> that he could die anytime. He doesn't abandon the idea of being an adventurer simply because he thinks it is cool.

The fastest way to be popular with the ladies. Even in the first few chapters he already starts to simulate the cliche moments when someone travels to another world they will meet up with a beautiful woman that would join him in his adventurer.

Rating 4* The world that he is it doesn't make much sense.


E.g - Nobody questions his absurd amount of mana and intelligence. [When he signed up in the guild.]
- His intelligence is so high but you can truly point out that it doesn't affect his thinking at all.
- Nobody questions where did he learn his life magic or why didn't he become a magician instead. [After he clean everyone with life magic in the beginner course.]

There are other things, I could say but I rather read till the latest chapter to see whether they explain it. Who knows, the guild member wanted to use him or something.

I'm honestly happy with the current flow of the story.

I just feel like this could become stale easily after 100 chapters,

if they keep up with the cooking skill + invention thing.

... more>> The only thing separating moon led journey, the horribly stale Death March is the MC here, depends a lot on his invention and potions. Any time his potions run out, his invention break down, he's going down easy.

So far so good. 5/5.
But if nothing changes, this would easily go from 5 to 3/5 or worse.
As I said, so far it's 5/5. <<less

Finish reading the raw. The story looks promising, but the fight scene is not that good. The author left too many holes that he didn't finished. The world building is deliberately vague. Because he wants to become an adventurer... to go where no man has gone before. Starting to conquer the 10 layer labirynth. And some of his team is come and go... that makes the story so different. Because this is a story of an ultimate porter that helps to achieve dreams and adventure.

Kinda enjoy reading this... because it's the novel was soo light. I dont have too think that much.

The MC is your standard coward. Of course, because he's hard to level up.. he still at level 1 with HP 10 but the MP is 999999.. the God gave him max in crafting magic tools, appraisal, healing magic, cooking and life magic just because he wants to become a usefull person. Even he is so OP in many skills and magic tools... just a punch from his girlfriend could kill him instantly... LOL.. he even had a hard time in bed if he doesnt have Body strengthening (x10) Potion or Peerless Potion or Recovery/Heal Magic Max.. LOL.

Overall, the story is fun too read for those who wants light story... not for those hardcores...i found myself fun too read this story...i hope the TL doesnt give up. I even dares to had a headache to read the raws just with Google MTL... and I finished it in 2 or 3 days.

Enjoy reading

Just so you know, the first chapters can be found via a link in chap 5, the first translator not wanting the bots to steal his translations via NU.

I don't like this novel. The MC is supposed to be weak and to grow slowly... but when you see his beginning stats, he is super OP and doesnt know it cause he is dumb.

Couldn't read more than 5 chapters. I suppose that the only way of enjoying it is to take it as a comedy but I couldnt since I... more>> had so much expectations. <<less
