Asakura Souji fell that day. Souji was an ordinary high school student. He was average in everything and his only skill was housework. One day, on the school's rooftop, he tried to save a girl, a complete stranger. He protected her with his body and died. Or so he thought. Now he had been reincarnated as a baby into what seems to be a fantasy world and now it seems that he's going to be a butler.

Original Web Novel

NOTE: The Light Novel version is a sequel/spin-off centered around Souji's master, Yoyo.

A game of tag is tiring

I just realize after reading and waiting the chance that the mc well meet the other 2 girls is so very far away.

The story is good but splitting the plot of the story for the sake of other minor character is not good.
While MC character are like the strongest butler his usefulness in the story is limited by the order of his master.

The chance of an romantic intercourse seems also very far or might not even happen.
That being said while it is label as a harem I see no harem element from it.
Like I said this story is like a game of tag where the girls are trying to play tag with MC
Its so tiring that the girls which is potential harem or romance partner is always chasing the mc.
The behavior of the master is also questionable, while most of us is aware the relationship between master and servant is difficult. this story only shows the master using the mc as her possession.
There is no harm from it but MC master restrict his action way to much that when MC try to show interest in another girl he gets the massage punishment at night. The massage punishment is also a torture for mc since he is not allowed to touch the thing he want to touch most.

The behavior of mc is also problematic the lack of interest to the outside world. I mean you are transported to another world so at least show a little interest in exploring it. No ambition what so ever and contented to server his master.

Well its a good reading material to pass time
At first I was looking forward every chapter now I just got tired
The question like when well they meet I can only answer by the end of the story
Its a good LN but the chapter can't catch up with my interest to the extent the I don't feel like reading.

Low quality translation

Just as Kevadu said; while the story certainly have interesting elements, the translation quality is sadly way too low, resulting the story being extremely choppy an almost impossible to take in. I really hope the group will reconsider their "no help needed"-stance and get a editor on the project.

Normally I like to keep my comments to the original work and not the fan translation, but sometimes a translation is so bad you just have to say something. This is one of those times.

Feeding a web novel through Google translate does not make you a translator. I know there are people who use that sort of thing to assist their translations, but holy hell does this thing need an editor. At least try to construct English sentences that make sense. Understand that Japanese word order and English word order are different, and doing one-to-one word substitutions does not make for a sensible sentence.

Maybe the original novel was good. I don't know. I could never get past the atrocious translation. This is unreadable.

I really don`t understand what is sivador mean, i guess im just plainly stupid. For the WN is better than others reincarnation theme, eventhough the char is OP but the char greatly describe a man who is matured in those age, not like re:monster, mushoku tensei, etc which it feels like the char is still teenage. And for those who like this kind of theme, id like to reccomend dalou dalu, coiled dragon, joy ofliffe by maoni which is alottttt better.

Reincarnation novels

This is the latest of the reincarnation novels that I have read.
Souji is the most decent person out of all of the MCs who died and was reincarnated into a fantasy world with his memories intact.
I have also read Mushoku Tensei, Re:monster, Slime-monogatari, and Gun-ota. Not the only novels I have read, but those are the ones that I have read that are reincarnation as one of the major themes.
He didn't really have any character flaws and was just a hard working average person who saved a random person.

Hayate no Gotoku plus magic  
by Trejon
September 22nd, 2014, 7:37pm
Rating: 10.0 / 10.0
Well, basically its a dude that saved a girl that fell from the roof of the school dying in the process. He was avarage in all but housework related stuff and gets reincarnted in a noble's house as the son of the head maid that is a fire magician.
After a while he discovers that his magic is also fire related but with a cheat, he can add properties and abilities to his fire based on his imagination. Making it a cheat level character that is also the butler of the daugher of the noble's.
If you like hayate no gotoku, imagine hayate wielding cheat level magic lol
