Abuse of supernatural ability that he was born with to manipulate women into being his s*x s*aves... With a gross but amusing twist as a result.
... more>>

After being born with x-ray vision, constantly abusing it to see through clothes, it becomes even stronger. Now, he see's through skin, with no way to control it (As of c4)... Gross. lol


I would say, "Beware, there's rape/blackmail." However, NovelUpdates has that in the Tags and the Translator also gave a warning that the MC is scum. So before I started reading, I knew it wasn't going to have fluffy bunnies and talking puppies. <<less

This novel is very hilarious, I never thought ero-novel could be this funny. MC's thoughts are unique.

You can learn about spirit and body tempering here and the girls aren't simple at all, don't underestimate them.. It's full of life!! :0

Ah, but for f*p material, it's not the best tho..?

Hell, I think imma reading this for the story --a

Go for "Inma no Hado" & "Sisters Violated Many Times in Dream and Reality" for f*p materials.. O.o
for haters, GTFO

Good novel. Quoting a guy in the comments, I came for the Ero, but stayed for plot. This is a very good novel, definitely for plot. Not "plot, " but plot. It's pretty interesting with some "academic" scenes in the midst. If you hate it, just stop reading. Why are all haters like this?

Surprisingly good story for a R-18 novel. The character development is good. The story isn't that ridiculous like the girl suddenly begging for d*** or mind break them with dream/magic but have a proper story.

I am still confused with one character that somehow got forgotten.

Super awesome novel, the MC is truly a scum, but not a scum that do NTR sht, but a scum that protects woman while asking conditions of having s*x with them instead... Truly a good novel, super recommended for people who likes cool MC

Freaking love this story.

The author is a genius at making an interesting story. This is difficult because I'm better at saying negative things and I don't really have anything bad to say about it, aside from that forgotten girl incident don't really know what happened there. Anyway the author is definitely someone I want to see more of. Seriously I want to say loads of spoilers and point out the writing techniques he used, I want to talk about the hilarious growth of the characters and how the MC has... more>> his expectations exceeded in the most entertaining ways. It would be more entertaining to read the story then my review. <<less

An interesting pastime.

If you're looking for a different take on human relationships, character building, tempering one self and so on, this could definitely provide some food for the mind.
MC could be described with a single word as a gambler, but not a reckless one. He'll observe, calculate and act accordingly without going out of his way. The story contains a sweet mixture of angst, expectations, uncertainly, love, lewdness and other. And aside from occasional jumps or loose ends it flows consistently.

I'm bothered the dull guy gf received a lot of attention for nothing (at least nothing in the first 34 chapters)


The characters are actually being developed actively and frequently find themselves in certain potentially very frustrating situations.

I'm looking forward to the rest of the story.

P.S. I don't think MC deserves to be called 'scum' three times before one does even start reading the story. <<less

It gets so much better!

When you start reading this, you might be offended because of the topic, but keep reading and it gets so much better. As of 32, the first girl is hardly mentioned, she's apparently being "saved for later". However, there is another girl who he manages to "charm" and their interaction is getting better and better. She was originally a side-character but now she feels like a main lead. Really like the way the author describes things (or how Pun translates it) but right now, the vibe... more>> feels very sugary or vanilla. Maybe the feeling of encountering first love for the main characters? In fact, this is what provoked me to contribute to Pun's Patreon (first time donating to a light novel).

Hopefully this writing style continues without losing steam. This is a harem, so we'll see when the other girls start developing. If you like to read well-fleshed out characters instead of 2D girls, go for this! <<less

This story actually slightly better than I expected but there's been some sort of unusable plot only for certain grill like latest part with those yadda-yadda another ability user yadda-yadda and she snapped bc another MC grill yadda-yadda

Original TL Team dropped this just because they have some chapter which has some shonen-battle esque and he doesnt like it. And then there's another person who tried to cont. This but got attacked with insult n other just by e-mail. We need new TL team to continue this novel. There isn't plenty... more>> of novel which talks about gentle scumbag man like this MC <<less

If you can get past the dark themes (well, personally I didn't find it that dark), this is a worthwhile read. It's a dark comedy and the MC is an antihero of sorts. Good plot and character development.

I agree with a reviewer that said it's not the best as erot*c fiction, because it's not very descriptive in that department. Regardless, the scenes are always interesting though.

I'm glad the translation work resumed recently.

Surprisingly addictive.

Yeah, MC is a scum bag admittedly. Seriously, he's got super X-ray vision powers that could be put to OP skills like martial arts, surgery, or etc. However, he only uses it for peeping at women from checking out their chastity or their weak spots. Despite all the MC's negatives, the MC's personality is very fleshed out.

Each character isn't the regular run of the mill Japanese ecchi character. They have their own personalities and will. As far as kink, the MC does most of it except extreme S&M, and... more>> all his interactions so far seem to be 1 on 1 even if others are watching. There's also no NTR yet.

I do like that the MC is such a dark and manipulative character. While he's like most perverted teen boys, he seems much more mature then his age. It's not just the physical aspects for him, it's also the mental warfare as well. He's truly a selfish character, but yet there are times when he seems unconsciously soft in how he treats his harem. It's scary how wise he is, but yet he knows his own limitations.

A truly great smutty series that is surprisingly more deep than most ecchi series. <<less

My brain is so engrossed with by the plot, character development, and writing, my brain took all the blood from my jin jin even tho I was trying to fap. Finally got off on the 8th hour with the help of a hot bath. Now I just need some sleep......

Update: so it changes to a battle novel later, if you don't like those, I suggest you stop after finishing the (spoiler) arc. ... more>>

This book is so good that I'm "trying" to read the raws
The author last online appearance is 15/07/2017, before that he updated his twitter and edits his work extremely frequently. I think something terrible happened so don't expect an ending = ( <<less

Started interesting, even with the forgotten character. Then it suddenly had a massive deus ex and poor plot. Now it is a battle novel? Auther keeps forcing the Asahina route, despite being poorly thought out.

Tldr plot railroading, inconsistencies, and just weirdness.

Hey, found another Nikubenki-level lewd drama~! :) The MC is a scumbag. Scumbag of Justice, if I must say. Or maybe gentlemanly (conditional) scumbag? Despite his scumbag-ness, he won't hesitate to save the woman he's interested with. With his X-ray vision + fighting techniques, he shall beat anyone who dare to harm his women and saves those harem-candidate-in-distress.

I can't say its the worst nor can I fault it for being unabashedly hentai/ecchi/power-trip but it's definitely not something I can recommend. The MC is pretty unlikable and the heroines are weak and stereotypical. Oh yeah, there's no major antagonist as of chapter 16, the hero seems to steamroll through all opposition. Definitely a 'Mary sue' story.

Nonetheless, the translations are good and easy to read, definitely not machine translated.

4/5 or 5/5 s*x scenes.

1/5 everything else.

MC is a borderline psychopath who rapes and forces people to eat insects. He intentionally provokes a girl into attempted murder and had little to no desire to stop it. His parents are conveniently regularly non-existent unless it helps MC get farther along with another character.

The s*x scenes and girls are the only redeeming qualities of the story. MC uses x-ray vision to see girls "weak spots" and give them increased pleasure (at least when he's not raping them) which I thought to be... more>> the most important aspect of the s*x but he's really only using it on 1 of the 3 (so far) girls. <<less

First of all, take the warning that the MC is scum absolutely seriously, but he is definitely more than that. This novel indeed has multiple scenes of r*pe and violent sex, yet the author tries to justify them by making the female characters deranged somehow.
I found the growth of the harem too ridiculous after a certain point, but it is somewhat passable especially considering the good action and comedy scenes. There is plenty of character development as well, even if they sometimes grow in frustratingly simple ways. I... more>> noticed a trend in the latest chapters towards making the MC more humane and turning the story a bit more action oriented, but I do not personally believe it was done properly since he basically got an OP skill with the trend of getting even more OP.

Overall, I would only recommend this series to anyone with a strong stomach and the ability to read with large tolerance since some scenes are... well.... twisted... <<less

You get "Plot" and real plot lol. The first few chapters = villain scum M/C, x-ray manipulating/raping. One girl likes the rape, but most don't.

Still, it is surprisingly good afterwards. He is the villain that kicks a group of bad guys ass for messing with other women. He doesn't do it to save the girls, he just doesn't like those guys so he crushes them until they beg him to stop and are afraid of him.

Anal/s*x toys/ bjs/ rape/making a girl cum like 20 times (pu*sy torture) just everything and... more>> anything lol it in sane but still good

If you can get past the dark stuff, then you'll like it. <<less

This novel is seriously twisted. I have read some weird stuff in my day but this one takes the cake. There is a serious amount of violent s*x often described in graphic detail. Well if you are into blackmail followed by r*pe followed by girls swooning over the rapist (I don't know how that happens) then this is for you... As for the rest of you stick to something milder. On a much happier note the translation is pretty good..
