Hiiragi Seiichi is an ugly, revolting, dirty, smelly fatass; these are the insults hurled at him one after another about his appearance. Such was Seiichi's daily school life of bullying, then for some reason, one day when school was out, a voice claiming to be a God said over the PA system to prepare to be transported to another world. What's more, not Seiichi alone, but the entire school. A fantasy world where game-like elements such as as levels, stats, and skills exist. However, the God still had preparations to complete for the transfer, and would send them over as soon as the hero summoning ritual was ready. The classes all formed groups to wait for the transfer, but Seiichi alone was discluded and as such was summoned to a different area. After being transported the first thing Seiichi ate was the "Fruit of Evolution". This would come to greatly change his life ----
This story is about how Seiichi went from being severely bullied by his classmates, even not being recognized for his accomplishments, and despite all that staying positive and surviving in this new world. As a result, he somehow becomes one of the champions. (Also the first heroine is a Gorilla?!)

Bad writing

Astonishingly bad writing, never seen that bad before. MC is unlikable retarded, hypocrite wimp. Tons of contradictions, not funny tsukkomi's. Translation: all those moo-maa-haa-tsu-are-wa and other unreadable gibberish
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
Friend is in grave danger with enemies 100 levels higher? Have a nice chat with a monster in the dungeon;
A friend just behind a wall and you know it? Have a MILLION attack power and can crush mountains? Search a way around a wall in the hostile territory, while a friend is in grave danger with enemies 100 levels higher
I'm sick of stupid wimps who try to not stand out from the crowd so hard, it puts friends and family in danger.

I enjoyed most of the story, so I kept reading. However, after the introduction of the Guild, the story becomes really stupid. I liked the mc's personality, and I figured he became stronger with the time spent in the forest mostly by himself and defeating monsters stronger than himself. Suddenly, the mc regresses and is intimidated by a few thugs, all the while asking for help from a couple of people could be his future teammates. All they said was "give up", and he still wants to join them?

The dialogue and explanations for things are a bit confusing. A lot of it doesn't seem to be explained clearly or correctly, as why some of the stuff that happens doesn't really make sense.

The characters are decent I guess, as so far there are not many character development yet, well emotionally and mentally development. The MC is apparently funny in the novel with his tsukkomi on things, but I don't really find it funny. You can relate to the MC, but I do find him a bit of a wuss, which is fine. The only thing that I really have against him is that I really don't find him funny at all. You also don't meet the first girl for a while, and when you do she doesn't become human until a while.

Even though this novel is supposed to be a comedy, I don't really find myself laughing at any of the jokes. Don't get me wrong though, I still enjoy reading this novel, but you just won't hear me laughing at the jokes.

So far I've read only 18 chapters, as there are only 18 chapters translated as of right now. I personally think that this series is okay, and I hope that it gets better in the future. If it doesn't then, you'll just be reading a novel about a MC always having to have unfunny tsukkomi about everything.

Sooo many translators on this Light Novel and yet nobody posted a dang chapter of it for the past 61 days...BTW story is nice, I like the MC. The idea of being ''bright'' even with his live is a nice change of pace...9/10

Reads like a bad anime script

(only at ch.8 of the English translations, so take it with a grain of salt)

It reads terribly and the dialogue suffers immensely because of it. It may work voiced, but in text it's just awful to read and I won't blame the translators for it. While the premise is interesting and the series may improve as it matures, so far the quality is too poor to rate it highly, even if it is a WN.

Maybe the style just doesn't mesh with me.
Maybe it's a Japanese thing.

Be forewarned. Also, I marked lightly because it's a WN, if it was an actual printed novel I'd probably give it a 4 or less.
