One of the edgiest mcs around, trying to be cool but failing so hard

Hmm, I actually went into this and thought that it would be a pretty good novel. I had high expectations and the first few chapters seemed to be nice, although I didn't quite like the stuff about spirits and how the mc was wishy-washy. However, I quickly started to realize that this mc is just another normal japanese mc but with his selfishness and narrow-mindedness turned up through the roof. The mc is essentially just a big, whiny and selfish baby. I wonder how this got such a huge score, perhaps some people just liked how he was slightly different and not the usual type of mc along with the story premise being unusual? I guess it's also about there only being 2 volumes and that makes it hard for some people to notice the flaws since there isn't enough time to do so.


Let's get started on the negative aspects that honestly made me sick.


First of all, he's extremely indecisive and can't make clear cut choices, mainly because the author isn't keeping his personality consistent. He tries to make the mc appear more likable by having him being indecisive about things but then he just forgets it because it's very clear he wouldn't care after he made his choice.


Then there's the part of him that refuses to kill people and he's acting ridiculously immature here. They're trying to kill you, how about responding properly? This is not our modern day world. An eye for an eye. The author is just kissing up to pacifists because it doesn't fit in at all in this story.
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
Seriously, he freezes up when the enemy takes their own companion as a hostage, someone who was actively trying to kill the mc just a second ago. Then the author tries to play it off as if the mc is sooo cool because he "doesn't care about someone who tried to kill him even if he won't kill people himself he won't go out of his way to save someone like that"(but he does). Seriously? He even had a "no blood shed" rule when taking revenge/venting anger, so he won't even break some bones or even injure people(do understand that these people tricked his beloved and was going to kill her along with 3000 knights and try to screw over/kill the people of the empire he first appeared at, which obviously includes the girl he was with from the beginning in that world, no matter how despicable the enemy proved to be, he still refused to even scratch them)...
This guy really isn't that different from other cliché japanese protagonists. The author just made him slightly braver, as for attitude and personality, he's the same with some other weird quirks that just serves to make him more unlikable.


As for these special traits, let's quickly cover them and why it just makes things worse rather than improves on the standard formula. It can be summed up in that he's seriously edgy as hell. It's creepy. He's pretty much a male yandere in some ways and not in a good way. This creepiness, edginess and possessive trait is just there for no good reason whatsoever and doesn't fit in well. Seriously, he doesn't seem to love the girls or anyone else, he's just obsessive and possessive as hell and won't hesitate to do anything for his single goal that he pursues like a single-minded zombie, making him quite unlikeable. He's just extremely edgy instead of truly cool like some other novels like WMW and Reverend insanity where the mcs have good reasons for their actions and acts logically instead of for stupid crap, where the mcs aren't narrowminded and moronic. It's honestly cringeworthy, I think I would've dropped this if there was more than 2 volumes out. He's truly a giant baby that can only think and move for one purpose at a time and will cry loudly and have hysteric fits whenever he doesn't get his way.

he's always making such moronic moves while acting as if he deserves everything good in the world and refusing to accept facts. After selfishly abandoning the girls like garbage and going home, he now regrets it after he fulfilled the only purpose that matter to him at the time, watching his grandma die slowly and then bury her. Well, that sounds more gruesome than it was, but think of it as an affectionate gesture. So, now he wants to go back to being with all of them and can't accept a "no" from the girls, instead chasing them and even almost forcing them into contracting him, he pretty much guilt tripped the second one into a contract and then forced it completely. The first one was more reasonable, but it was all ruined at the end of the volume where we see the mc vowing to himself, as the author tries to make him as edgy as possible with how his eyes darkened and the weird atmosphere and half-insane protagonist stuff, that he would not tolerate the spirits making a contract with someone else and that he would get all of them back into serving beneath him, and he will now go against anyone and everyone. The author managed to make it extra edgy by also making sure that a certain character has the purpose of stabbing him in the back in case he started going out of control, which is someone he trusts by the way, because she knows that he would make edgelords on the internet prostrate in inferiority with his edginess and would go against everyone in the world if need be just to gain possession of the spirits he himself abandoned.


This is where we TRULY start to notice how much of a nutcase the mc actually is and how hard the author is trying to make him out to be cool with an unusual personality, while what he did was actually just creating a male yandere that would do anything, showing how he's mentally unstable.


Well, if that doesn't make you shy down, you will notice even more stuff in volume two, especially around the end. The mc, having no better options, guilt trips the hell out of his previous deity slave who doesn't want to make a contract with him because she knows the mc is a weak guy who doesn't have the spirit of a warrior and doesn't care at all about being strong unless he needs it and when he does, he doesn't care, dare or want to be as powerful as he can be. So, he forces her to establish the contract to save some villagers she, without meaning to, almost caused the death of. Well, it doesn't matter, right? Because they will all somehow fall in love with the mc anyway, so who needs proper reasons, right? It's not as if he even loves them, he's acting more like a teenager obsessed with something that he believes is his or wants to be his, like a child throwing a tantrum after not getting that toy he wanted in the store.



So, we get to a part where he hilariously snaps completely because this guy he knows killed someone. The mc went all "why the fuck did you kill him!?" before swinging his sword at the guy in question. The guy answers that of course he'd kill him, or what, did he need him to interrogate? They're truly scum who deserved it after all. So, the mc says that nooo, why did you kill them, you were part of their group before, how could you do that. The guy asks what the problem is, they were supposed to die anyway. The mc, who obviously hadn't planned on killing them seeing his reaction and actions goes on about how he was planning to kill them and doesn't care(because the author can't help but make him sound as edgy as possible, probably thinking he's truly cool), but why did this guy kill them? They were a part of the same place before after all! So, the guy just says that even if he was a part of that group before, he is no more because they went against his beliefs or whatever, if they're like that(these people were plundering innocent villages, selling slaves, killing and planning to start a rebellion), they should just die or something like that. This results in the mc snapping completely and going into attack mode because he can't accept that someone doesn't think like him. Even being a baby should have limits...




So, the mc is a hopeless case and extremely unlikable since he has no true consideration for anything, has a one-track mind and is nuts but just in an edgy way. By the way, this guy can't help but blush like hell and become incapable of proper action whenever confronted with erotic stuff. I mean, which decent man would care to that extent about seeing some women naked? Even more so if the person in question is a modern day man and has a huge stash of porn and is clearly very used to seeing the female body naked. I can't help but look down on him.



All of this along with a basic, uninteresting story made for a really bland read and a lot of irritation. Truly not recommended, never read this, especially since the author doesn't even have the decency of continuing his own novel.
