If it weren't for the harem it would be perfect  
by Joese
June 12th, 2020, 4:34am
Rating: 9.5 / 10.0
I usually never read harem novels and so but this NL didn't disappoint me .

The MC Rudeus is quite consistent , he doesn't go from being a neet to an adonis,(the author writes it is a more or less "natural" way).Even though he is famous for being strong and having performed some feats ,his friends consist of people with similar tastes or acquaintances he gradually gets to know better .

The story has a hard magic system and explores the whole world with their different costumes it isn't perfect but it is the most deep and complete exploration of a fantasy world with just one character (you don't need extra explanations for anything that happens). For example "Toaru Majutsu no Index" or the "Ender" books use loads of novels to explain / explore the world and you must read some to get a complete understanding.

Almost all this harems' feelings are created slowly as a combination of being together for a prolonged time ,teacher/student bonds....and a other normal normal and plausible reasons. BUT the after Roxy the relationships get a bit rushed.

It is a bit disappointing how the author tries to convince himself and the readers that the harem was an option, it is just an excuse to take out his internal struggle and change it for some corny scenes (I recommend you skipping them).He isn't going to die for breaking up with his GF .

spoiler about the school arc and why the harem is created:
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
The story got a bit messy when Sylphy got pregnant. Since she stops getting stronger ( with bad consequences in the future) and makes him unable to move forward with some things... After knowing the future he feels guilty , since breaking up is her death flag...

I quite liked the ending it isn't your typical MC turns into a god or an ass pull power-up to bend fate with the MC giving a moral lecture the the villain. Like slime or Re:monster....

The prologue reminds me of parasyte Kiseijuu last fight
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
after the MC dies, he goes to the plane where the main villain exists and sympathises with him.Then the villain thinks he is mocking him and he (the MC) disappears from existence

A slow but great story

Simply put this can be said to be the story of a perverted, worthless member of society getting reborn into another world and slowly becomes a better person. This doesn't happen immediately after he reincarnates either but he does eventually become less of a piece of trash and more a genuine character.

I think a good thing to mention with this story is that the story is as mature as the main character is in his new life. When the MC is a child its a childlike and barely adult themed besides the MC staying to his old perverted ways(which he never brakes off) he or being bound by his old life still. But by the time the MC is an adult the story and plot are serious and can get dark. Don't expect the story to be big and grand in the first immediate volumes, this is a slow but steady ride throughout the story.

The harem is also done pretty well compared to most harems I have read, and the romances actually go somewhere throughout the story. I will admit sometimes the romances can feel a bit off but compared to other novels to me its a breath of fresh air.

The biggest downsides I can see for this story is that its slow and not action pact immediately, there is remarkable amount of hidden incest (2 cases) that arent mentioned so I thought I would, and I did notice that this story tries to make the world not that safe, but due to the MCs experiences we never end up believing it due to him never running into these dark elements. Another downside is because most people rate this a 9/10, including me, people assume this is something that tailors to their taste as well. Dont assume you will like a story just because a large amount of people do.

And one last comment, the MC isn't more OP than everyone else. He is strong for his age yes and he is OP for a normal person due to reasons stated in the story but most of the entire later part of the story we see the MC face people who could literally kill him in a minute if Rudy didn't prepare for months on end. Just because the MC is strong doesn't remove the tension from any of the fights and his powers barely put him on equal grounds with his opponents

Can't understand why it's rated so highly

The protagonist is an absolute useless, scheming, perverted trash. The plot seemed rushed af. Half the characters are plain terrible. All in all, there are much better isekais out there, with less ratings than this series.

Condensed 1st Paragraph of the Novel
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
I'm a 34 year old homeless and jobless person.
I wasn't homeless three hours ago; I was a veteran NEET who hadn't left my room for the past year.
However, my parents had passed away without me noticing.
As a NEET, I didn't even attend the family meeting, let alone the funeral.
I was masturbating in my room on the funeral day when my siblings suddenly rushed in, dressed in mourning clothes, and declared that they were severing all relations with me.
I ignored them, and my younger brother took a wooden bat and destroyed the computer I valued more highly than my life.
Half-crazed, I lunged at them, but my older brother has a dan rank in karate, and I was viciously beaten in turn.
I sobbed and begged for forgiveness in an unsightly manner, but I was chased out the door, and didn't even have time to change my clothes.
What did I do wrong?
All I did was masturbate to a mosaic-less loli video (I took of my older brother's daughter in the bath with a digital camera) during my parents' funeral.

The MC is a self-inserted, perverted PoS that defies logic in why he was resurrected. Ignoring that glaring issue (and his obliviousness to why his brother reacted that way), the novel itself reads like a bad fan-fiction with the plot bouncing randomly in one direction and then another. Ironically, I persevered with the expectation of upcoming grandeur because surely all these "masterpiece" reviews weren't a mistake. I dropped it halfway and haven't looked back.

At first this novel was great, probably one of the best novels I've read at the time but the MC just ruined this for me.

Just when you think he actually grows as a person and learns something, he regresses and makes the same stupid decisions. I mean, I get it (it's supposed to portray how human he is by all the mistakes his made and how he grows from them) but common author what's up with the inconsistencies in his character. One moment he establishes himself as this reliable character and the next he's back to his old habits.You'll be reading the novel and you're gonna be asking yourself "nobody who's gone through so much can be this stupid right?" well...

Best "Isekai"

The genre of people being transported to another word with some "cheat" seems to be popular nowdays, if I had to select one that do it right (from the recent ones) I would choose MT. The author goes great lenghts just to prove how much the story (not the world itself) is based around Rudeus and his devolment as a person. Having said that I still have my pros and cons for the story:
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
>Rudeus goes from creepy Hikkikomori to (somewhat) upstanding person and family man
>Most arcs have good pacing
>Characters and setting are interesting if a little strange in details
>The pacing is mostly good and it's shows how much the charactesr grow in time
>Rudeus "cheat" is not really that much of a "cheat" and it plays well
>The story strarts with Rudeus and ends with him

>Some arcs can get tedious to read, and some felt weird (Magic University arc is strange since Rudy was already working as a adventurer)
>Not all characters get to show themselves fully, also some are unlikeable
>The bad guys are a little disappointing (in terms of reasons)
>It's a harem, while Eris & Rudeus realtionship is good and with Roxy is pasable but Sylphy threw me off, it didn't really felt like love there.
>Rudeus can get really stupid and inactive at times
>Last arc felt overlong and killed the mood of the part

Even so I recommend it, It's a nice read, and stands better than the rest of the genre.

It had a really interesting premise. There was world building, decent-to-okay magic system and the plot was solid in the earlier parts but there were so many holes. Plot holes upon holes upon holes! I think halfway through or maybe about a third way in the author was pandering to the sounds of money rushing in.

I was expecting a more mature way of addressing the problems the MC was facing each time, with mapped out solutions that we can follow through and get the readers excited about but more often than not we get insta-answers were written. -_- WHAM BAM! Problem solved! Not even disguising how incredibly lazy some resolutions were! It was so irritating to see what could have made a great character development to a mediocre good-guy-always-wins MC trope. It was such a let down.

Seriously. This was one of the VERY, VERY few harem light novels that I could actually swallow. (Maybe only 4?) I hate everything harem especially when it's just there to feed the fantasies of frustrated, horny teenagers and fool everyone else into thinking it's popular because of its writing. Hell no. I wanted to quit at 60% and was procrastinating reading it. I had to set up a reading schedule just so I can say "I finished it! I finished it so I can make an honest, decent review about it!"

I'm giving this a 5.5 or maybe a 6. I don't know. I hated how the harem grew so quickly and so, SO illogically. Oh? MC thinks that girl is pretty, too? They shared something that he didn't share with the other(s)? That's okay! I'll have them in my harem! Why not! I've been lonely for so long and girls have shunned me left and right I'm sure my readers will agree that women are quite agreeable with multiple partners know. I'm OP and all that.

But I'm giving it a 6.5 stars because all though there was b*llsh*ttery everywhere I enjoyed some parts and was surprised at the plot twists. So yes. There a 6.5.

How do I spoiler?

If you didn't get to the plot twist, don't complain

If you don't read up to the part of the story where the unexpected happens, don't complain with "don't get the hype". In the end, the mc gets strong, but, he is still super weak compared to his godlike opponents/allies, so the story has to compensate, and it does.

My rating is as follows:
Romance: 7
Action: 7
Characters: 7

Taken by its parts, this story sucks. It is when taken as a whole that it shines.

I just don't get the hype...

Frankly I was pretty excited to read this series when I first heard about it, since I had seen it recommended quite a few times and most of the reviews were positively glowing. However I have to say I just don't understand what everyone sees in this story. It's not very exciting, suspenseful, romantic or even well written. In fact I suspect that this story only got popular because it's pretty much the epitome of wish-fulfillment. I mean our main character is basically the best ever at magic, has multiple people mentioning how brilliant he is all the time and of course charms his harem with only some minor hiccups along the way.

Now you might think I completely hate this story but it's not all bad. Even though the story isn't very well written it does flow pretty good at least, very few times was I bored or just wishing for the author to move things along. There's also moments with the side characters where you can see that they're slightly deeper than you thought they were, though ultimately not by much.

This series is alright if you just wanna read about the main character getting stupid powerful, boning chicks and I guess doing some sorta plot stuff. If you're looking for an engaging story or romance you might be interested after a while but you have to slog through a lot of junk first.

Oh and quick point, the guy who posted the review after me was obviously upset that I negatively reviewed a series he enjoys. He insists that if "you don't get to the plot twist, you can't complain" but here's the thing: I actually DID reach the plot twist. And I still think it sucks. I don't know what people are smoking when they say stuff like "sure each INDIVIDUAL piece sucks but it's good overall", no the whole thing isn't very good, AND each individual part sucks. I sincerely don't know how a plot twist is supposed to redeem multiple books full of bad decisions, I guess some people will think anything is good.
