Spoiler (mouse over to view)
The story is told as a history documentary about the rise of the Norton Kingdom. The story starts slow and dumpes alot of information about the characters in the first 50 or so chapters. The chapters aren't that important, but give little bit of context to the actions and trust showed between the main cast later in the book. The advancement in technologie is also done really well. The MC doesn't just create machine guns in the first year, but slowly builds up from balistas to catapults to cannons. If you like reading about the history of like the roman empire (or other great empires) then you would probably like reading this book.

It's fine if you don't mind massive sexism.

Having read 45 chapters, it is enough for my first impressions.

The writing (English translation)
It seems that the dialog is spoken in a very unrealistic (by English standards) way. Many of the words used are too specific and seems weird. For instance "Alright, your reasoning has left me fully convinced. I welcome your participation." Who talks like this? Usually, one would say something like "you've convinced me" or "I get where you're coming from." Aside from the foreign English, the writing is serviceable, just don't expect any sophisticated prose.

The story
It doesn't bother me as much, but it is pretty obvious that if you care about female roles in a story, this is not the story for you. With one exception, all of the women so far are vapid, skin deep, boring people who only cares about clothes, marrying into rich families, mooning over handsome men, etc. So if you care deep or complex female characters, the first 45 chapters have not shown much promise.

That said, the male characters are not much better. Most of them are one note servants, stereotypical lazy people, stereotypical nobles, or other stereotypical roles. It's fine for regular entertainment but nothing deep.

The story itself is mainly a slice of life story as there currently is no goal. This makes it sort of harder to read for me because I like some goal for the protagonist to aspire to but currently it just follows him around at his school doing his daily tasks. Hopefully, the story will pick up later.

Remarks
I will continue reading to see if the story picks up. At least for the first 45 chapters, it is trashy entertainment but nothing more.



*Update*
I have now read 170 chapters and can clarify on a few points

The writing
Unchanged from above

The story
The story has changed from the school setting to him trying to retake his host bodies family domain. There are some contradictions in that he has modern sensibilities such as dislike of slavery but he seems fine with some rapey stuff. He also seems fine with lot's of murder and especially murder with association such as kill all relatives of his enemies. I guess power does corrupt.

It's not obvious from the first few dozen chapters, but this novel is actually quite sexist that it even bothered me when I usually am not bothered by it too much. For instance, the MC and allies routinely have sex with their servants but because they are nobles, they never ask permission which is rapey territory. They claim that the servants love it but history would beg to differ. And then theres the MC's belief that you can't be a good parent unless you actually were pregnant? So not only is it sexist, but it indirectly mocks people who adopt, are unable to carry a child for medical reasons, and possibly also sexist against men too because they can't get pregnant? WTF?

Remarks
I guess if you don't like rapey stuff, sexist stuff, and immoral stuff (murder), don't read this.
