No idea why all the negativity.

A bunch of negative comments have kept me steering away from this for a while.
After reading to c93, I have no idea what is that all about.
There is nothing fundamentally wrong or broken in it.

Complaints about OP MC or harem not fiting personal preferences are ...
Well I'm lazy, so read bakaleaf's comment for details.

I would say, ignore the naysayers and try before frowning.
If you read and liked Mushoku Tensei, Tate no Yuusha no Nariagari, Konjiki no Moji Tsukai
or something similar, chance is good this may be your cup of tea.

Broken Translation  
by sdarkpaladin

Rating: N/A
The translation of japtem degrades severely after volume 3 and vol 4 is barely readable.

Story wise, some might say this is a typical loser turned imba-god pattern. However, the author included a segment in the first volume covering the breaking down and re-building of the protagonist's heart/soul which i find interesting and different from other reincarnated cheat pattern. Although the story turned stale after that and is mostly MC one shotting majority of the enemies I still think that it has the potential to get better.

Will revisit this novel once the translation gets better.

Very Good Novel, Translation Issues (As of ch 97)

Rating: N/A
Aright here is my rating of the series:
Story: 9
Translation (through ch 96): 9
Translation (after ch 96): 2 ( it is only not a one because there are some chapters fully translated and edited)

This series is well written and enjoyable, the characters are mostly believable (but their oddness is part of the stories charms). I have laughed out loud while reading this ( no really I did ).

When the translation was with Japtem (ch 93) , It was really good. The next three chapters, it was alright. Then boom ch 97-99 only summaries, and from then on it is machine translations ( which I have nothing against if it is editied ) but they didn't keep with the naming system that Japtem had and there was little to no editing which made it painful to read. And there were obviously missing parts since the story just jumped all over the place. SOMEONE PLEASE actually translate this series it really good but if the translation is lousy, those of us who can't read japanese will be stuck.

I found it to be a generally good light novel in the beginning, but I dropped it later.
I disliked the way the harem kept going. At the point where the Hajime, the MC, started to care for the teacher and the teacher started to fall for him, I was thinking of dropping it. It felt like his character just made an abrupt turn.
It's not as if I don't like romance, but relationships between females seem to purely end up as romance, and it somehow feels like relationships have become objectives in the novel.
I enjoyed it at the start, but I probably won't be reading it again. It might also be due to the fact that I fantasize about loyalty between partners in stories, but I didn't like the overflowing harem that the story seemed to focus on.

I recommend people who like, and or have high tolerance for harems. A part at the start is also good for people who like MCs who become strong through hatred, and classical OPness.

epic fights

Rating: 9.0 / 10.0
in my opinion, if this turned into a manga or anime as is then I'd go out of my way to own them mainly because of the most epic battle scenes. I get some people might think that the romantic scene and other comedic scenes are childish but ine must take the readership and target audience into account so for me although I mostly read seinen this is an excellent and exciting shounen read. Definitely recommend it to people who won't just read the superficial aspects of the story

I can say i enjoy reading it. Although it won't be as fine written like a published book since this is a web-novel.
There is many flaws, yet if you can bear it and continue, this novel is good for time killer.

This novel aren't for people who look for in depth characterization/complex plot or originality.
There's many cliches in it, but cliche doesn't mean the story can't be enjoyable.

Actually not as bad as others make it out to be

First off, those who think that the novel's illogical, it's a FANTASY novel, not slice of life shoujo or something like that. The harem element isn't as large as other novels but that's ok. The character develops in quite an interesting way.
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
The character gets betrayed by one of his classmates who has a yandere-like crush on the girl who has a crush on the main character. This leads to him almost dieing and having a distrust in other people as well as obtaining a crazy strong will to live.
Altogether the main character's development is kinda believable considering what he went through.

Goes downhill fast after 50 chapters  
by tablewindow

Rating: 4.0 / 10.0
The novel starts out fairly good, with the main character starting in a new world and trying to survive. At first the novel is focused on his survival in the new world and him trying to find a purpose in this world. However, it somehow changes into a harem novel after 50 chapters, and by chapter 90 all the author describes are the attempts by the girls around him to grab the attention of the main character.

On top of that, the main character´s persona changes into that of a paper towel, giving consideration to the stares of a kid and not wanting to step on the feelings of anyone remotely close to him. That´s like a complete 180 from the guy trying to survive in chapters 10-50. On top of that the story doesn't progress at all, unless descriptions of the mc chilling on the beach while being surrounded by his harem counts as story. It had a lot of potential, but it just selfdestructs as you continue reading.

hit or miss

Rating: 1.0 / 10.0
smashing hit 9/10 for people with suppressed desires, unfulfilled lives, chuunibyou syndromes, social awkwardness, stressful daily life or being bullied and do not have the courage or ability to make matters right in real life.

0/10 crap tier for people looking for good writing, consistent stories, hate of gary stu and mary sues, and etc etc.

story varies widely between action filled suspense page turner to self insert harry potter esque fan fiction with OC so the author can live a life he/she is incapable of achieving in real life. Plus stop faffing about with over used harems because it is inherently hard to make non linear heroines when so many are fighting for spot light and it reeks of author's complete inexperience with real relationships and how they and women in general function + fan service for the sake of fan service instead of actual character appeal.

If you must have drama based on romance please stick to the good old and much easier to design properly love triangle so you can flush out both of competitors. Is it possible for so many different women to all fall dramatically in love with a MC in cheap harem fictions due to (and this is always the same quality) the author saying they are kind/blah blah blah/etc instead of actually showing it through actions? Sure. But women that fall in love with MC after days, some say hours, of interaction and do not know the MC at all beyond casual interaction and observation are all shallow and not actual waifu material. Women that judge people they barely know on one quality are shallow because it does not have to be just looks or money since these women all fall in love at almost first sight up to a max of say a month to the degree they are willing to share one man with 5-6 other people time wise?

Therefore due to the horrible inexperience of the writer who fell into the common pitfall of sacrificing character development for harem romantic/sexual fan service all the bitches (and at this point they are all bitches due to being horribly flat one dimensional characters who do not deserve any term higher) most likely all based on anime archtypes, please for the love of all that is good and holy at least change the 500 year old loli from a vampire to like say loli spirit of righteous indignation, loli were turtle, or even loli hobbit with a drinking problem and the super hot, gentle, kind, overused staff chick trope, most beautiful girl in the class who barely knows the MC when he was a massive loser but is madly in love with him anyways to the point of her actions and disbelief in the face of logic (despite the logic not being correct due to deux ex machina saving the MC) sounds very much like a stalker to be honest. If the MC cannot be expected to be a cool bishounen with redeeming qualities before he went godmode to solve his problems why could the love interest NOT be an average looking over weight girl that wears glasses and was also a wallflower who is still gentle and nice and have a hobby in say reading warning labels and product descriptions instead of miss perfect Mary Sue who is hollow and one dimensional on the inside?

OP protagonists are FINE but please be consistent, you CANNOT just say a person's strengthen is thousands/millions of times above the common man but then he uses a gun and shit to fight instead of say breath on some one and turning him into dust? splitting the seas with one kick? flattening MOUNTAINS with a punch, leaping 90 floors instead of being confounded in a dungeon by mechanics? Surely the writer must have realized those RPG stats you see in video games would transform differently if you bring real logic to them? That 5000 str means you lift whales for fun not just to get a bigger number when you swing a sword and that 5000 def/vit/etc means your body is so dense you weight tons instead of just taking 0 damage. Overlord does it realistically when a pure mage with such high levels split trolls in one swing and hug people to death due to high strength instead of max rage hulk some how able to NOT crush spoons when eating? When you write you should not SAY some one is smart or strong or have 9000 stat but rather show it in events and actions and when you do not it creates very annoyingly inconsistent characters.

The MC doesn't "become a bully"

Rating: 10.0 / 10.0
He doesn't.
minor spoilers
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
I mean, he becomes really pragmatic, but that doesn't make him a bully. There's a difference between refusing to help someone and actively antagonizing them; and he only does the former.

just because the MC isn't running around saving every damsel in distress he comes across,
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
although up to where I am in vol. 4 he basically DOES rescue all two of them, and even buries the dead guy,
he's not running around looting and murdering innocents. I suppose if you can't stand anything less than a shining white knight as the MC, then this isn't the novel for you; otherwise, it's a great read.

You could relate this protagonist to the one in Tate no Yuusha no Nariagari (Novel), another great read.
