Well.. this is a good short read. It has some heavy Norse mythology that is frankly very interesting, but the thing that it is supposed to be is a pure comedy.

There is not much romance. Yes, the story revolves around a couple that is pretty much in love, but the romance is not really the strong point of this series.

The comedy is what makes this a good read. Mind you, there is plenty of fourth wall breaking involved, but the comedy sure is good.

But then, why only 4 stars? For... more>> starters, it is too short. I would prefer something like The Destruction of a Triad Boss Trilogy over this for pure comedic value. Is the comedy not good enough? Not really... It is just that the comedy is not consistent.

I feel that this is more of an anime material. Getting this animated will make it a lot funnier. And shorter.

If you are looking for a short read (It does take some time to finish this) and more importantly, a light read, this is the one. This one barely manages to make it to the Mango approved list. <<less

A funny and heartwarming love comedy of a pure, innocent and energetic shota and cool strong beautiful Valkyrie. The main selling point of this story is the mc's outrageous action with his innocence and our Heroine's protective behavior that tends to be violent and the hilarity that ensues after. And the best part for me is how easily the MC tame the cold and violent heroine

A boy with the strongest plot armor ever... and I liked it because he was too cute (and I am a man saying this).

The comedy in this short volume is great. And is a good read if you want something light hearted and not too serious.

Best way to describe this series is a Norse mythology with meta-comedy. The MC goes on several journeys while the female MC and other gods watch from Bifrost and comedic conversations take place.

this is a story of a mortal young man is courting a Valkyrie... so the male lead is kind of naive and stubborn when it comes to the things he choose, won't listen to others sometimes and the female lead is muscle-headed, tsundere and stubborn as well when it comes to the choices involve herself. the other casts have a lot of different personalities, from funny, to serious and expressionless. there are comedy and fluffy events. as well, some battle events. there are a lot retorts from the casts to... more>> the readers that made me laugh. the illustration is pretty well drawn and the description is pretty well written as well. the plot is kind of interesting, I think, with some hints of the future of the chapters. recommended if you like love-comedy novel, with shotacon or liking older female lead here. <<less

A short comedy, maybe too short. Great for light reading.

It seems to be a miracle that the girls in this story haven't all married long ago since they're so easily swayed as to fall in love pretty much instantly for no reason whatsoever (almost every woman introduced seemed to swoon for the MC and almost fall in love instantly for no real reason... Several women in a single volume, not even non-humanoids are safe. Seriously? He's even downing married women although they of course don't try to get into a relationship with him, they're just swooning really badly, at... more>> least at the start). That's probably the worst part about this little short story. I mean, he just clings onto the heroine and she instantly falls in love just because he, as a kid, says that he wants to marry her and that she's beautiful. I mean, how low is her bar if she falls in love after 30 seconds of a kid being stubborn? And then even further as he tries to reach her despite the danger to himself? She doesn't know anything about him and he doesn't really know anything about her, it's more like she's a shotacon+insecure about not having a partner and he's a s*upid, stubborn and selfish kid who wants to marry her for the sole reason that she's beautiful.

Doesn't help that the heroine is actually a weird kind of tsundere who can't be honest with herself at all, not even a little bit. She's always trying to deny that anything is her own intentions and always wants to "duel" in something to tell herself that it "can't be helped" when she loses. Urgh. I can find some types of tsunderes cute, but this one isn't one, she's like a half-arsed tsundere who is kinda tsun but not really at the same time.

But even then, it's decent enough for a 1 volume long comedy. Anything more than that would be too much though. Be prepared for a lot of norse mythology that you will probably not understand without searching it up, which makes you wonder who this or that person or thing is all the time as it's introduced as if it's something normal. I couldn't be arsed to search for it so it just bothered me and slowed my reading speed a fair bit (I do know a little bit already, but well, mythology isn't a big deal in the end as it turns into a little love comedy where the mythology is hardly relevant except for making characters). I also don't really find this novel to be funny, the main "comedy" comes from gods and goddesses acting childish and trying to interfere in the heroine's love life in various ways, usually by trying to make her take the last step etc (like s*x) or tricking the boy into doing something only to fail or almost fail, it's as if they're teenagers. That and sometimes breaking the 4th wall or using references/words from our world for some reason. It's pretty average, 3/5 sounds like a reasonable score considering the flaws and lack of truly good comedy in a novel whose only redeeming trait should be comedy but while there are a few laughs, it's a rare thing here, at least for me, so average seems fitting (if it had more volumes, it would go below average).

I also don't like the idea of them being in different worlds and that the boy has a lifespan at all. But since these beings are pretty much in charge of souls, life and death and whatever else, I guess it's not really a big deal. But really, the last chapter was a trainwreck, a kind of bad end to a not-that-exceptional novel. Even in just one volume it got to the point where I just wanted to get to the end and finish this novel already, so perhaps rating it 3/5 is too high, 2/5 might be more prompt, but I still feel like it was unusual and not too long, so I'll just let it stay as 3/5. <<less
