title says all, novel doesnt really go anywhere, mc could be wandering alone in a empty room and it would sum up to the story so far. started off well then just fell off, it's like watching an idiot wandering into the desert and slowly die. goes from going to new world, to living the in wild alone, to living with some aristocrats, to making a business, to being a adventurer on the side, to go research more slimes, to not have any of that shit matter, everything is pretty fucking random, like the author just wanted to put more and more shit in to make it interesting but ending up just overloading it with a bunch of that random crap.

I liked the novel at first but the mc pissed me off first the mc lacks direction or a goal hell most main characters have a goal of some sort example, become a king or open a bakery destroy a kingdom become a harem king but no he lacks any sort of goals it doesn't have to be some sort of grand ambition but something while researching slimes can be consider a goal he still lacks the ambition to do so he just does just cause there is no real he just does it.

Also his is power is never really tested what i mean about that we have never seen him in a true life to death battle not even once all slimes do everything for which is pretty boring cause he is supposed to be pretty strong yet we never see it and it not like the good where it adds to mystery of how strong is he.

Well the plot the guy below me said what the plot is.

====EDIT: I decided to keep reading as I think it's unfair to completely rule something out before reading at least 40 chapters.... Take my advice and find something else. You will be so incredibly disappointed. This actually goes from bad to worse. Save yourself the torture I went through====

I am actually very disappointed in this one. It was good to read, everything seemed good and nothing seemed really forced. Guy is sent to another world as a cheat character who is chosen by the gods. He is alone in a cave secretly raising an army of slimes *evil laugh*

However despite the great writing. There is no plot. Nothing really happens and characters do not develop. No reason is really given behind characters actions and it just falls flat. The noble lord suddenly focusing on money and how to sell the things to make a profit?? why? Complete 180 from his original character!!
MC is incredibly strong, which would be enough to shock anyone at his level of ability in so, so many things. Yet no one reveals any shock he is high level in resistance, magic,archery and swordsmanship... no one is shocked that an 11 year old could kill everyone present if he sneezed in their direction....It just lacks so much. When they first find out about him taming a big slime, everyone is speechless. Later in the story he is taming levels above that slime yet new people who have never met him have almost 0 reaction.

It just falls bland. After 20 chapters I have already found myself skipping parts to try and continue reading.It really is a shame since it is actually really well written. All its potential is wasted.

Spoiler (mouse over to view)
Here are a few examples of why this just goes completely downhill.

MC doesn't care about money,adventuring or really doing anything. Starts his own laundry business which takes a whole volume of him running a laundry business and making all this money...which he doesn't need or really want.

MC says he wants to be independent from nobles in volume 1, changes his mind halfway through volume 2 when he realises he doesn't have any ideas on an actual plot.

Girl is fired from her job due to attempted sexual assault by an employer and defending herself as she didn't have any experience with she now works at a brothel as a sex worker 3 days a week. MC asks the question "is it really ok to leave your job as a low pay hooker for this honest well paid job?" Seriously.... Goes from virgin to whore in 10 seconds.

ALSO side note. Author has also now stopped writing this as he found that pulling random idea together to attempt a plot causes problems with future writing.

It's a great novel

Have you ever read Mushoku Tensei (Novel)!?
Although they are different but as I read his I have the same feeling reading both novel

It was also a surprise to see an MC which has a worse life than Weed The Legendary Moonlight Sculptor (Novel)
Most MC have harsh life before they got sent to another world but the MC in this has a very cruel life that it converted to skills *spoiler (have something to do with a certain someone giving him bad luck)
Also the approach of the GOD's who sent people to other worlds made this novel interesting
Unlike other novel which god appear and sent you to another world this one is different

As always MC is OP but he is mostly struggling to his self always reminding himself not to be evil.
A normal person who well encounter the cruel life like MC well 100% become the next demon lord
that is one of the reason mc is favored by the God's

I also love how MC's is raising his slime pets (Start guessing how many slimes he already raise lol answer at spoiler below)
I love how the novel give a balance approach showing some kindness and cruelty at the story.
Since MC has a body of a child but a mentality of an adult one can already guess how he is being threated at the new world. but the interesting part God's from that world are looking after him.

How I wish this is Harem lol It well be very interesting base on MC characteristic.
I love MC self discipline he always remind himself no to be OP.
But if he continue this path one day well come the world well end because of his pet's lol

Spoiler (mouse over to view)
MS has a Tamer skill but the monster he tame so far is only slime
Don't underestimate MC slime
MC evolve different slime
Cleaner,Scavenger,Poison, Acid, Healer, and etc. Kind of slime
(the same spieces of slime)
100 slime = Big Slime
500 slime = Huge Slime
1000 slime = King Slime
???? = Emperor Slime
????? = God Slime
I love this all slime army!
MC has 4k+ slime with various speices
The current number of slimes are as follows:
Sticky Slime x 907
Poison Slime x 666
Acid Slime x 666
Cleaner Slime x 22
Scavenger Slime x 3033
Heal Slime x 2
Metal Slime x 1
Slime x 1
I think 3 King slime at most (Scavenger slime eat trash and poof)
Interesting right?
Not to mention MC is OP skills

Seriously call the boss of slime here Tensei Shitara Slime Datta Ken (Novel)
I enjoy it so I can guarantee is not a half hearted novel like everyone else
Why My rate is not 10?
For once the lacking of genre like I said how I love if this is harem
It's a wholesome feeling but nothing is perfect
What lacking for me might be different for others so I won't mention anything about it.

I don't know what the call the MC. An extreme case of "even the gods gasp at his baseline stats" Gary Stu... Except those also include "oh my god this person has been through so much in life that he has mental health stats that should turn anyone catatonic or homicidal" that everyone is shocked again, so a Martyr Stu? He is also very bad with people, and likes manga and anime and that sort of otaku stuff. Yet he has a huge Etiquette skill level that makes those of kings and queens pale in comparison. He is also a god at housekeeping. And martial arts, and even magic (which should be 0 for normal earthlings).

This all before he even dies and gets his cheats in this *oscillating hand gesture* reincarnation fantasy.

The long prologue is a dialogue with three gods of a fantasy world who pick up Earth souls to use them as siphons to transfer mana to their world (where it is actually needed and used), who are charmed and shocked by how extraordinary the MC is, and basically explain everything about how their reincarnation system works and why. This goes on in three parts, and there's a lot of talk about stats and cheats and options and that sort of stuff.

Then the first chapter is about all about stats and skills too.

Except it's mostly about the MC's Slime Breeding Farm in the forest. The first actual chapter, dedicated to all the ways the MC's slimes have evolved and gained skills and so forth.

With detailed skill lists for each variant and a tally of how many there are.

Don't worry, in chapter two you get actual interaction with people. And hurray, the slime stats return in chapter 3! Mostly to show the updated tally of newly split slimes.

I'm going to try to continue and see where it all goes.


Ah that was just a preamble to get the slimes to merge into giant slimes. They also have stats.


A couple of paragraphs and now the local Duke's whole family (including grandpa and the kids) are visiting the forest cave HQ of this extraordinary forest-dwelling magic-using, potion-making, bear-hunting child with horrifying mental health stats and trouble with speaking complete sentences. This chapter 4, just after the bit with the giant slimes.


I will quote a bit:

"Big Slime!?"
"It couldn't possibly!?"
"No, this is definitely... you!? You were able to tame a Big Slime?"
" it weird?"
"Big slime, you see... It's a magical beast that no one has ever been able to tame, you know?"

I think this will be my last edit. My head hurts.

EDIT: It might be a parody...?

EDIT: It's not a parody...
