World Strongest Rearguard – Labyrinth Country and Dungeon Seekers


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

A heavily overworked businessman takes a nap on a bus headed to a corporate retreat. He awakens in a fantastic labyrinth city, immediately being informed that he has been reincarnated after dying in a bus accident and must work as a dungeon seeker.

Confused, the former businessman heads to the registration point to get his job, only to be hit with two huge and horrible surprises: The first is that his pushy boss lady who had worked him to the point of collapse in his former life has also reincarnated here. The second his job received from registration is unknown and unreadable—no one will party with him and will treat him like an invalid if they find out this secret!

He is forced to hire a sub-human mercenary to party with him, and things will only get worse from there as he is forced to confront the deadly nature of his new, reincarnated, occupation.

It's a pity most people will just ignore this novel with the "it's another Isekai with a wimp MC" argument, the setting is interesting and the characters are likeable, especially the MC former boss. She starts as an overbearing insufferable character but after a few chapters we learn her reasons for doing so and she even apologizes, unlike most tsunderes and similar boring characters she never returns to that old behavior.

The MC is a rearguard and somewhat of a tactician, while soft-spoken and a bit of a coward he gains... more>> self confidence bit by bit and is trusted by his party, the other girls are actually decent characters so there are no "let's beat the guy because he dared to look at a girl's cleavage " scenes, they are also getting stronger so the girls aren't damsels in distress. <<less

this novel was fine until now, but the bad points are revealing themselves :

_The female lead who, we only knew was hard on MC could have become a strong character with a lot of reasons for the abuse but instead already started to become meek/shy towards MC (boring harem already on view) (with a "sorry I was stressed "as an excuse for overworking the MC).

_The ballsless MC who said he had ambition looks forward to his retirement when he can afford a comfortable life (day 2).

_The competitive based... more>> world where the low rankings seekers sleep in stables (trashs) and mid rankings seekers of the beginning area sleep in suites (VIP), but the others more conventional jobs have a normal village life ? So what, do the rankings change every day ? Do you also change establishement every time you lose/gain 15 places in the ranks ??

_So it's a very competitive place, that means the story should have a bit of darkness in it, spoilers: it won't, clearly, everyone is a good natured and talkative being.

The last point is bad to me the world tells me getting stronger in struggle, pain, joy maybe death but the current story tells me slice of life with op MC (a boring one).

Conclusion : I should haved continued reading as it is still early, but I can feel the disappointment taking shape little by little.

So thats where I will stop this one <<less

Started out interesting but for some supposed "adult" characters they sure act like teenagers who have no idea how to handle a relationship. And that's all this story is about at this point.

As always it started out fine but as of chapter 24 it's already slowly devolving into the same old isekai slice of life trash that we're all used to. The plot itself is very much dull as the entire game system is reminiscent of the most basic form of mobile rpg. The powers of the MC so far consist of simply adding flat bonus values to his companions' attack and defence and at this point I can already tell that this story's whole plot is going to consist of the... more>> mc's party being able to advance forward simply by having him present and his companions going all gaga for him because of it. 20 chapters in and already his party consists of a harem on cardboard heroines who've taken a shine to him barely a day after meeting. If things continue this way in the next few chapters then I'm simply gonna drop this and never look back as I've long grown tired of all the wish fulfillment drivel of JP novels. <<less

Well this WN start quite nice, it was something new and story was actually good until one point when it suddenly turned into useless slightly perverted harem. I mean in last few chapter story is only about relation between MC and other heroines which just making it really hard to read at least for me.

I am still going to read more of it but if the story soon will not start progressing again it will be another WN which had to be dropped because of too much useless crap between... more>> MC and more then 1 or 2 heroines <<less

I like the world building here. Even though not everything might make sense, at least it is a unique world with its own distinct customs and rules, not your generic isekai. Granted, you've got adventurers and dungeons, but it is still different from everything else I've seen so far. The characters are also fairly distinct and flashed out, but we didn't have time for them to really develop.

What's bad about it is basically a romance. We got 30-year-old people with juvenile insecurities who are too shy to hold hands. I... more>> kinda understand since according to the story they were slaving away at the company, so they had zero romance, but this is still kind of too immature. We also have a bunch of girls taking a liking to the MC for no reason and looking at how the author handles it, we are probably not going to get a relationship, or at least not any time soon. Expect a platonic harem on a level of middle school manga. At least there are no tsunderes so far, and if I remember right, none of the girls is a loli.

So far there doesn't seem to be much of a plot. We have only characters getting used to the world, but there is somewhat of a goal with one of the girls.

There is also not much in terms of comedy so far.

Overall it's a fairly interesting time killer. I would say it's an average story, but we will need to see at least 100 chapters before we can see where it will go. <<less
