I am really surprised by how much i like this manga.
There are a number of manga's on the market that start of in the same way: average guy sent to fantasy world with rpg game elements.
The hero can only use a shield as his weapon, which falls in line with current trends of Japanese manga/anime of underpowering lead male characters.
However, the story is really good so far with all the betrayal and subterfuge. The other heroes, the king and the princess are self centered enough that you really feel for the lead character. The main character also has a vast variety of magic shields at his disposal that make his battles very interesting and his interaction with his companion Raph is very cute.
I look forward to Naofumi's future deeds as he gains more companions and shows the world just what a true hero is.
Definitely my favorite new manga of 2014.

Its great. I hope it ends well long way down the road. As of this writing, it makes my blood boil. The drawings are crisp and the writing conveys realistic behavior to the circumstances.
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
The spear hero and co are really really really really pissing me off. That, and everyone's attitude. Even the mc piss me off at times but he's understandable...unfortunately.

1. "If someone do bad things against you, you either hate them or become strong to prove your innocence"... OR behave like MC. It is the most basic behavior in case of bullying in real life.
2. Because of bullying people usually have trust problems. MC "doesn't have faith in his only comrade(or u can say slave) then also he constantly worries about his slave". While MC have problems with trust, it IS normal, after what happened to him, but it doesn't change the fact that he is a normal human. He still wants someone to accept him, even if he tries to push those fillings deep inside him. That's why he wants to protect Raphtalia. BTW would you ever want to become like the ones you hate?

I wrote all of this based on my own real life experience. It's not just "kind of logical", it's based on facts.

Well this is pretty good so far, i generally like RPG manga and this one seems like it has a lot of potential. im curious to see how the plot goes and how the main character gains more skills. Also something happens that kinda darkens the main character's personality but it made me like this more cause i know i wont be getting a boring super goody-goody lead; i like it when the lead or a some characters are a little more gray vs black or white. Especially in a world where you must kill to get stronger and survive.
