Description

In the shade of the dark forest, a beautiful oriental maiden with a troubled expression sighs to herself…

“Why did I forget…? No, I guess I wanted to forget. He’s finally here; that harem eroge protagonist…”

Saitou Chie has a childhood friend that has always been the stereotypical manga protagonist. Because of that, she is constantly annoyed by his “fan club.” She isn’t even surprised when he is summoned to a fantasy world and wishes him luck when he suddenly grabs her yelling “Then you come too!!” and pulls her in with him. Now her body has been destroyed because it wasn’t meant to go through the summoning and a God is saying “I will give you a new body…”

This had great potential and I am deeply upset that I’ve come to hate this book. I don’t want to spoil things though... read at your own risk.

I won’t spoil anything but I will continue to say that I have read a lot of books, novels, manga and the like. I’ve never been forced to stop reading a story even though the plot held/still holds so much promise until now. I’m sorry if this review is confusing or disagreeable but I expected better.

Honestly the characters disgust me and the plot... more>> is not redeeming enough to continue <<less

Meanders a bit too much. Half of the synopsis, regarding the "harem king childhood friend" hasn't even been relevant since the first two chapters which were just explaining the set-up.

Basically, the guy alone was intended to be summoned but he dragged the girl in, and she died because she was an unintended summon. God as compensation let her reincarnate 2 years prior to his summoning, and the story up until now has been covering the events between her friend's summoning and when she first appeared in this world. I guess... more>> on an off-topicish note, you could bring up the obvious questions that would arise, like "what would happen if she creates enough of an influence to prevent the events that lead to her childhood friend's summoning in the first place? Isn't that a paradox?, " but it's not likely that it'll ever be examined in detail, considering the prologue has her hearing the details of said hero summoning.

But anyways, this aspect of exploring the journey of two years prior to the main event happening is fine on its own, but why even include that bit of her backstory if it's not going to be relevant for such a long time? Might as well have not existed. Not much of importance has really happened and currently the novel is really dragging with long tournament arc that isn't the least bit interesting or important. The author seems to be in no rush whatsoever to get to the story the synopsis actually teased.

The sad thing is, contrary to what I expected from reading the synopsis, I'm actually far, far more interested in the childhood harem king "sub-plot" (it's basically a sub-plot already) than I am with overpowered black knight adventures. It wasn't as obnoxious or played for laughs as I thought, and I actually felt for both of them in their own ways. The harem guy was an idiot, but it's clear that he loves the protagonist, but isn't reciprocated. Meanwhile, I understand why she despises him. It's kinda like a tragedy in a sense. "What if you were in love with your childhood friend but God decided to make you a literal dense, retarded harem protagonist and the result was the distance between the two of you became a rift miles wide?"

I want to see the story about them reconciling and understanding each other better. The reason he even dragged her into the summoning circle in the first place was because he didn't want to be without her. Why did the story have to become something completely different? I'm waiting desperately now for a time skip. I hope we get one soon. Worst case scenario, the story will end at that point and there will be no such relationship. <<less

I love the storyline and the idea that even without kidnapping some random child from another world, if the army actually put in effort they could still do pretty well on their own. (Except that the army is learning this from someone who got accidentally summoned but whatever)

I docked 1 star because the MC was typical "humble' Japanese character that Japanese authors love to self indulge and lukewarmly show off with. O look at me, I'm OP but I'm gonna completely deny that and pretend I'm just a... more>> normal girl! Gets kind of gross like, have some pride please ?

(I mean I know she's not fishing for compliments or anything, but my experience with people in life who are amazing but can't take a compliment just leaves a bad taste.) <<less

I actually enjoy the story although the MC might be boring in some ways. At least she's not annoying. I find its rare and interesting to have a female character in another world to fight a demon lord. I like the characters' views in the story and how they interact. I'm excited to know how she would react when her childhood friend appears before her the next time. It's sad that the raw chapters are not very updated.

Finally! A female protagonist who isn't dumb! Who isn't weak! And who isn't obsessed with love! Chie, you are the MC I've been looking for all my otaku life. She treats people like actual people not harem gags. She's genuinely likable. And the story... There's an actual plot! Its not just OP world building or point-less slice of life! Things are moving in a purposeful direction! Its not the most exciting, funny, or moving story I've ever read but, my god, its satisfying not to be reading the same old... more>> tropes
My only regret is you don't have more mofumofu time with your unicorn. <<less

I actually really like this novel. It's fun to read, the heroine is interesting, the side characters like Claude, Conrad, and Alice are interesting, and I can't wait to get to the part where the "stupid harem building hero" finally arrives. Wish someone would pick up the translations regularly, but I'm thankful for what has been translated - definitely a fun read and worth checking out.

Nice story about childhood friend of hero. Sometimes I think tittle is kind missleading I mean she 4 years ahead him of course she gonna stronger than hero.

For some reason I ship her with hero dunno why. It's depend when they meet again though if he can realize her identity from her behavior.

i really really like this story a lot, I like how the MC has a lot of qualities that makes pepe follow and love her yet she herself doesn't realize it like I mean that childhood friend of her obviously likes her and I like how she isn't like most female leads that are just plain dumb and clumsy.

I came in this novel wanting to read about the thing with the 'harem protag childhood friend', much like Shiraori_. However, it seems that it won't come to light sooner or later. Which sucks, because it seems like it would be super interesting.

The only qualms I had for Yuusuke so far is that he has the 'handsome' part down, which initially made me think that he's a shoujo manga male lead instead. Harem (or fanclub) and denseness aside, Yuusuke was a pretty ok guy. Just severely misunderstood by our MC.

Oh... more>> well. I'm looking forward to their meeting (and hoping for a time-skip). <<less

One of the best novel I've read! But I wish the time would hurry and skip to four years later to meet her friend, cause it's starting to get boring!

It is an interesting plot with the female protagonist as a knight and how she use practical procedures to improve the Empire. And of course, still waith for the romance to progress

The only thing that bugs me is how far off the ero-protagonist's arrival feels. I mean, the black knight is stronger than the hero, but said hero isn't even there for the comparison. If not for that one chapter, the title of this WN could have just been "I Was a Black Knight When I Reincarnated".

While it's not exactly what I expected, it's still worth a read.

What I expected (more or less) :

Spoiler

Black Knight does amazing things while ero-protag unintentionally steals more credit than Mr. Satan. Probably didn't need this in a spoiler, but why not.

A really enjoyable read, the idea and plot is interesting, and the characters are lovable. Too lovable sometimes that you get suspicious of their motive. The story is slow paced but eventhough the updates (on the tl and story itself) comes out between super long breaks, I feel like I would never drop it and will wait for it forever. Maybe one point that I can't understand is the development of the character of the MC, I hope the author would give more details later. Well I still love the... more>> black knight nontheless :) . The translator does a great job trying to convey all details (which are a lot), kudos. 5 stars because this story got me hooked despite the slow pace. <<less

This story is refreshing in its own way if I must say so. So far the MC even if it was “she” I don’t fell any weak vibe from her. And it was easy to read and understand.

the MC is dragged by her childhood "dense" friend when he was summoned by summoning circle. She got a pity from the goddess over there and gave her some cheats to survive in the other world. She hid her identity and tried to survive in the other world. The story is pretty interesting, the MC can be dense sometimes, and she sometimes forces her way through fights, though she can be reasonable. Sometimes, the pov is changed from her to people who know her so it makes the story a... more>> bit interesting. The action scenes are pretty good. Recommended if you are looking for female protagonist who are not summoned as a hero. <<less

I thought that the premise was interesting: a here is summoned but there is already better that him so he is not really needed. But for the moment it hasn´t reached this point. And I don´t know if it will happen.

Until then it´s just the story of a clever MC in another world. There is no difference if she is the hero or not. I think her interactions with her childhood friend would be very interesting with various possibilities: a comedy route, the hero is useless compared to her, everybody... more>> falls for the hero´s charm (to her dispair). Until then it´s pretty generic=plain and there are better ones. <<less

Things I like about the series:

The concept for this story is pretty interesting. It takes all of the standard harem building hero tropes, and stuffs them into the childhood friend of the (female) MC. If you’ve ever thought “Riajuu, you should just explode!” at a dense hero MC summoned into a different world, I believe you will empathize with the MC of this story.

Of course, she does have the MC aura of charisma going for her, so if things keep on, we may end up thinking the same about her... more>> as well.

Still, I am enjoying this series, since even if some of the situations are fairly stock fantasy, the fact that the MC thinks of herself as a side character puts a different spin on things. I look forward to seeing where this series is going, especially once the lead inevitably meets up with her childhood friend again.

Things I don’t like about this series:

I feel the author hasn’t properly followed up on a few items. For example, the MC significantly empathizes with one of the characters she meets early in the series. Through her words, she is able to significantly help that individual by causing others to understand that individual’s actions (being vague here to avoid spoilers). While this interaction has helped her integrate into the world and find a career, there has been no further interaction with the person she helped. This is the case even though there should have been plenty of opportunity. I really do feel that this was an interesting relationship that was left to wither unnecessarily.

Overall Evaluation:

A solid take on the hero summoning series, with significant later potential. I would read this if you are interested in reading a good story surrounding a MC summoned into a different world, or a story with a strong female lead. <<less

this Story is quite interesting if I have to say, even though it still hasn't caught up with the prologue~. I also think the way the Protagonist acts is quite nice and I like this Change of pace to a tomboyish Protagonist. My Problems with this Story would be the 'Hero' himself. Seriously there are a lot of dense hero Stories but seeing how far the Hero is actually troubling the Protagonist even going as far as killing her off, makes me just go 'ugh', hoping that this Story would... more>> not become something cliched and the Hero acting all innocently saying something like 'I didn't want to be seperated with you' when they meet again... <<less
