I guess... not bad? It had a non-cliche start, at least. But the MC is still very generic - a nice, polite guy that doesn't want to see others die and the usual stuff on JP MCs. The only thing different is that he's a bit more aggressive with fighting and he actually looks jacked as sh*t compared to those skinny ass white bois, but I don't really see any character development on the tables regarding him being a kind, generous fellow. He kinda bores me, so it's not my... more>> type of novel.

The harem girls seem kinda boring as well, they're not tsunderes at least so that's good, but... I don't really see any difference in their personalities... <<less

As of c7.

Early days yet, but I want to give a heads up to those who want to read this story. This isn't the typical wishy-washy herbivore Japanese MC, or the bullied-turned-bitter MC. The hero is a straight up ruthless and decisive, reminding me of Hagure Yuusha (Aesthetica of a Rogue Hero), though there hasn't been anything to suggest lewd content yet (all seven translated chapters are still about his arrival).

Personally, the hero doesn't seem plausible: a school student who is taller and stronger than other kids who didn't... more>> blink an eye to launch the first strike, resulting in death and torture. It would be more believable if the hero was an older soldier or mercenary in his twenties. Instead, we're suppose to believe that this confident schooling kid learned deadly martial arts from his grandfather and somehow able to put all his training into practice despite growing up in modern day Japan. We're also supposed to believe that the MC was able to calm himself in this new environment and do Sherlock-like deductions and observation in such a sudden event.

As far as the setting goes, it seems like the usual "summoned to a different world" where knights and magic exist.

Translation is good, though some readers might be turned off by the translator's notes/opinions being inserted in the middle of the text itself. <<less

I really wanted to like this novel but there's too many things about this chuunibyou novel and its Mary Sue protagonist that makes it sub-par.

    • Too many forced plot developments. What are the chances of meeting slaves that know magic in the middle of a forest? What are the chances of a slave magic system having a major flaw that allows anyone to acquire ownership with a simple ritual?
    • Everyone is emotionally retarded. Everyone within the novel is easily provoked by a few simple words.
    • MC is the avatar of god. There's no one more intelligent than the MC in the entire series. He can outwit all of his opponents even while playing chess, shogi and go at the same time. After arriving within a kingdom, he immediately understood the political climate within a few minutes and managed to convince the princess to trust him. Then he negotiated in politics with experienced nobles and gained the upperhand.

The manga is better, because it condenses the plot and has good art.

The novel, as others have said, is unrealistic chuunibyou. The MC is both too Mary Sue to be believable, and yet not Mary Sue enough to be interesting. You're left with a guy who is too rational, too merciless, too kind-hearted, too smart, too normal, too motivated, and too unfocused all at once. The English translation quality is also very rough.

Usually I write long, detailed reviews, but I just don't have the motivation this time. Try it and... more>> you will quickly figure out whether you like it or not. That's all I have to say. <<less

Shows promise! I originally found out about this from the manga (which of course has a few changes), and I like what I have seen so far. The protagonist is (as you can guess from the tag) strong, but not overpowered. Basically the typical Japanese high school student, except he isn't, because he is very familiar with killing techniques as that is what he has been trained with since he was young. I prefer this series over summoned slaughterer because the character kills out of necessity, not to be specifically... more>> vindictive like summoned slaughterer.

I do have somewhat of a problem with the translation speed though, it is kind of all over the place with an almost mas release roughly every 2 months, which also somewhat leaves me wondering if the series was dropped or still going, all the while having no news of what progress may or may not have been done translating.

Whatever the case may be though, I look forward to more chapters, and as of now the story is just slightly ahead of chapter 1 of the manga, for those who may be curious. <<less

This novel got so much potential. Not typical lame, weak-minded Jap MC. This one can kill right from the beginning. The story doesn't focus on just brawl & fight, have a decent amount of drama & it have great depiction world-building.

The author try to deliver different kind of situation that many other 'summoned to another world' novel failed to see. You can understand it, if you read the summary, but I can't say it is totally different from other novel's so far. But I think this is worth the... more>> look. <<less

I tried to like this, I really did. Unfortunately I guess I don't get the appeal of this because of cultural differences maybe?

I agree 100% with everything ongoingwhy said in his review, and I would also like to say that this WN suffers from the typical JP MC fuccboi syndrome. It does not matter if this guy is 4 meters tall and breathes out fire, he is still constrained by what seems to be a rampant Mary Sue all-around-good-guy JP trope. Seriously, this guy is shaq size and breaks necks... more>> for fun but he simply does not know how to say no (especially to women). His interactions with people are painful to read, and it is not because he is unaccustomed to his new surroundings.


What broke the camel's back for me was the beginning of volume 2. He ends up finding out that he has no way to go back and he breaks down. Pretty normal, is it not? Weeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeell, that's okay, because he's fine again soon enough and back to mindlessly doing quests.

The very next chapter he is forced to accept a quest that screams out DANGER! DANGER! DANGER!, because he has apparently checked his balls in at the counter. Of course, this quest is just a way to forcefully move the plot towards the direction that ongoingwhy mentioned, and he is like a fish in water in his new environment that I'm sure will cause him to inexplicably become involved in some world changing b.s.


This review (rant) might make me seem angry, but I'm really just disappointed. Disappointed in the direction, and consistently same character archetype that is prevalent in each new JP novel. The authors try and disguise it with different types of smoke screens and fire works but we can all tell.

Just to be fair, I'm not solely ragging on JP WN as I also believe CN WN are equally disappointing but in a whole other direction.

TLDR; Nothing new here folks, don't be deceived by all the shiny mirrors and the flashy lights. The story is just as unimaginative as the description makes it sound, and I'm sure you've already read something that resembles it. <<less

Yo, Heavrus here!!

Let's get onto it.

It has been a while since I had read Japanese novels. And boy, I was very much pessimistic about this one, I mean really. So, I left it in the dirt. Then I found a manga of the same name on Zingbox. Then I thought, it won't hurt if I read, right?. Dude, best decision of the month. It made me rethink about JP novels again.

Plot: Startup is really good. Only because of the MC. Otherwise its the generic plot, though it feels kind of... more>> polished and sometimes "forced". [I have decided to ignore this due to things I mentioned below]. But our MC, man, who would have thought he will be ruthless like CN novels? He has both Brains and muscles. Trained from the birth with Martial Arts to fight for death. He does not shys away from killing someone if he "must". But it not only ends here, he has intellectual brains too, that it makes you wonder how the f___ can an average student know so much about Politics, weapon knowledge, infiltration etc? Played Ascreed too much? Not a valid reason. Moving on.

Characterisation & World : Its a harem. So you know what to expect. But this novel has put some restrictions in this department. Good for me and the novel. It seems like the harem will not exceed more then 4/5. Since it was mentioned in one summary of the manga and you can see from the MCs attitude that he has not much interest in girls. I am a sucker for harems, but even I know by now. That more harems = less character development. This can be nullified if the author is experienced. But not everyone's d*ck and Brain are that hard. But, this guy (author) seems experienced even though the harem is already small. I can perfectly understand the circumstances which led to the girls being slaves then servants or now the followers of MC. Therefore I can sympathise with them. Not every novel makes me do that. Other then the girls there are villains. As usual, it makes me want to punch them. But wait, being a king is no easy. Everyone is selfish here, from Sardina to Satou to that king. They have their ambitions. I understand that too. But it colludes with our MCs interest. That's where it went wrong.

Eg- As for the other guy that got transported before him "Satou" values Loyality, our MC values freedom, see? Its contradicts.

. Aside from that. Side characters are still side character's. No problem with that. I don't want to hear the life story of the bar tender anyway. The world is medieval. But at times, it screams "modern". Because of the heroes that came before him. To say it simply the cultural flow is uneven at places. Turmoil is everywhere. Disloyalty, bloody politics, unrest are leaking. And it is for our MC to take advantage and find his own purpose here on.

Potential and Verdict : For me. This novel has enough potential as China has over the world economy today. Should the author manages to do it good, it can spark fire. Definetly will keep reading.

[Haevrus Hotline: If you have played Crusader Kings II. Then you might love and understand it even more. Keep in mind, that this is upto the current chapters I have read. Since weather and Web novels may change faces anyday.] <<less

First of all, you got to know that it is not some wish fulfillment novel where it gets stronger exponentially. NO. Our MC are trained to be able to kill while on Earth.

The premise of being able to get stronger by killing (level) is there, but not being a main point of interest. Each act and the consequences of Ryouma is well thought.

The author way of hinting and bringing story is good, it flows well and have a good twist.

... more>>

like when Ryouma is so desperate can't go back to the previous world, the author hint it that Ryouma have another whole of dark side 'personality' reside inside him, yet doesn't spoil the story and make a good moment with the twins.


Also the MC is not just brute-force type, nor just the know-it-all guy which make every story just unbearable.

If I have to describe it, it's like a 'summoned slaughterer' and 'genjitshu oukokuzaki' combined and a poured into the plot of 'sevens' here and there. <<less

OK, I did not think I would see novel of such quality among translated Japanese novels. Great action, not a pu**y MC, he is smart, cunning and strong. Those who like a badass and strong MC and those who prefer MC who relies on his brain will both like this. To say truth this is one of the best novels that is currently being translated.

Also to those who gave this 1 star... wtf are you reading? I think I know most of the fantasy action novels that are being... more>> translated right now and I can't find that many high-level novels that would warrant giving this novel 1 star. Just what and how many novels did you read that are so high level that you gave this one 1 star? <<less

I really love the protag.

He's strong without any cheat, smart, quick witted also kind yet he's rational enough to not to be naive man with flower in his head.

He's ready to kill, ready to be evil, ready to be cunning if he must to. Yet he's still has rooms to save Laura, Sara, Lione or Bolts.

... more>> I think this WN is the most rational story in the situation where you suddenly transfered to another world.

The story is not too heavy like "Dungeon Seeker" and not too easy going like "In another world with my smartphone".

It's just fit and perfect.. <<less

MC is a martial artist and his 2 followers are talented (OPish) "battle slave" sisters. Some people might not like the plot twisting from escape, to adventuring to kingdom building, but from the very beginning he was destined to clash with the Empire that summoned him as he seeks for a way to return home.

To be honest, I don't really have anything bad to say about this story at this time. It's an excellent politics and kingdom building story with a decent amount of philosophy thrown in. Everything in the story either fits into the internal setting or has a tolerable reason why it doesn't. The only reason I'm not giving it five stars is because I've seen better, and that's more a matter of personal experience and general skill of the author than anything specific about the story.

However, there is a contentious issue... more>> I'd like to address; the power and skill of the MC, Mikoshiba Ryouma. Yeah, he is uncommonly strong and smart. But for comparison;

*Child soldiers in Africa - 10, 11, 12 years old - are really good at killing people, either with knife or gun. They are a potential match for the professional grunts of many first-world armies, and know a hell of a lot more about small-unit tactics than your average armchair general.

*American Midwest teenage farmers and ranchers are pretty smart. They frequently don't give a sh*t about "soft proof" like diplomas, but they can manage the basics of a business just as well (or better) than your usual business student, and I've known a few teenagers who were better mechanics than the guy at your Ford auto-dealer (and more honest too.)

*The local girl scout chapter at my previous residence participated in the SCA Youths chapter. I'm changing the names for their safety, but Amy could kneecap a grown man faster than you could say WTF, Jessica was a semi-professional seamstress (a few of the adult SCA members bought her work and used it for costumes), Sally created a new beer for her father's craft brewery, and Monique was the primary assistant horse-tamer at a nearby ranch.

People like this story's MC are certainly uncommon. But they do exist, all over the real world. Claiming that they don't simply because effete screen warriors don't interact with them is flat out false. <<less

I enjoy it.

MC too OP, I want to see him suffer and lose and mature a bit more.

Side chars are kind of lack luster, progression is smooth.

Only thing that is slightly annoying is the infrequency of updates.

I'm sure the person (s) working on this series is using up spare time for this as is usual, but unjust want some consistency is all, th though for hard work!

There's some issue with the series but overall it's not a bad read. In short

if you like light reads and novels that are higher risk then slice of life but not to the point that main characters can die than this is a probably a good read for you. Now to the issues.

Very unlikely coinky-dinks.

This isn't really much of issue in my view but it might be a turn off for some.


    • Main character comes from a universe that has humans that happen to naturally have an advantage in the summoners world.
    • Main character has unnatural physical prowess, even by the summoners worlds standards.
    • Main character happens to come across very impressionable, similarly aged, combat ready companions literally in the middle of a forest.
    • One of his companions happens to look like a princess from a country that was on the brink of civil war.
    • It just so happened that at the time the main character crossed into an area looking for people that resembled the princess of a country close to civil war.
    • And many other
      deus ex machinas.

Unused plot devices that are introduced as something important


    • The main characters world has humans that have high absorption power. essentially imagine re:monsters main characters unique ability, except everyone has something like that, just weaker. And anyone summoned from japan has very good absorption power. This seems like something that would be mentioned a lot right? nope. The main character has killed many people by now and its only mentioned a handful of times, but never as an important plot point. except maybe now in v3c21 were hes having a hard time learning magic because of all the conflicting chakra he has absorbed.
    • Magic is used very sparingly, even though it seems like an extraordinarily effective weapon/tool and in no short supply. it was used to wreck some merchants, drown some dudes, kill some fat guy, make a fort, and that's about it. 83 chapters, large portion with combat and only a handful of magic being used.
    • The main characters samurai like training is almost never used. Not saying that the main characters fighting skill is the focus of the story just saying he only got to show off like 4 times total.

now if these problems aren't cardinal sins for you then keep reading and see if this is a good read for you.

    • Slow-ish plot development. I say it's slow-ish not because I feel that it needs to pick up the pace but because the novel overall doesn't feel rushed. That being said the novel does like to make very large leaps which can be disorientating.

      MC goes from being summoned to immediately killing everyone to wandering the world to being involved in a civil war to creating a country.

      The in between each leap I feel is well developed and have solid story telling but the leaps are sometimes a bit too much too soon.
    • VERY LITTLE CHARACTER DEVELOPMENT. Both physically or mentally the MC has very little progression, I'd argue non at all. The MC already has this mentality that sticks out in our world but in this new world he fits right in. That leaves very little adjustments to his character to be had. The novel compensates by continuously adding characters into the story. This works... kinda.
    • Novel tries pretty hard to make everyone seem grey, and I love it. Some of the decisions made by some characters are pretty backhanded, but most of them I can personally approve of, since they make sense in the pov of said characters. If you like novels that have those kind of characters you might like this novel.
If you read this novel the way it was intended to be read than I believe its a good read. It's a good web/light novel, meaning if you read it lightheartedly and purely for enjoyment you will probably find said enjoyment. However if you are the type of person that like over analyzing, maybe stay clear of this one.

The only bad thing is that the MC cleverness is kinda unrealistic for a 16 year old student, hes able to politically maneuver and outmatch anyone from the nobles to entire countries. But then again this is japan, every MC has to be a high schooler for god knows what reason. <<less

This kind of MC is so cool, he didn't get strong after came to the other world. He already is strong from the very beginning. He has charisma and not just a muscle head person.

I just hope it won't have tragedy ending. But, I look forward to the next chapter.

This novel feels more like a CN one then JP, as it's focused more on world and logic of MC then emotional aspect of characters. However it didn't do a good job especially with the MC in my opinion, as it tried to make him too ruthless and cold but on the other hand normal and kind, it feels too contradictory and uninteresting in some parts of the story. That just doesn't go together and the translator doesn't help with making it better.

For me, this story started off pretty good.. Then it took a turn for the annoying. It got far too political for me.


Especially when he joined the neighboring kingdom's royal crew. My real question is, no matter how smart he is, why did they accept him? He's a man with a questionable background.

At first, I thought the storytelling was pretty messy since I think that the author tried to avoid obvious spoilers by going from one perspective to the next without much context. But the more you read, the more it all makes sense. It feels like it's going to be a good novel, but I'll reserve judgement when there's more chapters and the plot is better revealed to the reader.

Also, there's a manga adaptation of this novel. It kinda helps if you have a hard time visualizing some parts of the... more>> story.

Side Note: It does feel like Summoned Slaughterer, but this is a different author so there's only a small (but not zero) chance that both stories are linked. I'd like that idea, though. <<less

I got the feeling that this might be a sequel to Summoned Slaughter... the scenario is similar and they mentioned about an otherworlder "bringing" unique weapons. Those weapons that they described match the one the MC requested to be created in Summoned Slaughter.
