Horrible translation for English   
Rating: 9.0 / 10.0

English translaiton were pretty bad and they originate from the web version. even the author acknowledges this comment-page-1/#comment-3210
"Its the WN. I don’t think there’s a LN translation"

since LN is way better than the web version. and no illustrations either compared to Light novel version. the translation were of poor quality honestly, it has several errors and some parts seems to be machine translated compared to the one copy i have right now

one example is at start the MC actually meant Wyvern Strike, and the translator uses “Flying Dragon Slash!!” which is wrong and sound dumb as hell

in all honestly its a good light novel but i would not rate it for the web version

The story is pretty mindless. The world is a game world with a lot of corrupt leaders, criminals, racists, etc. The knight wanders around aimlessly, whomps random ass with OP skills, generally fucking around and exasperating his companions because he's essentially a god with low intelligence. Read it for some light laughs in between more interesting series.

Horrible... (3 volumes in)

It's very clear this is trying to cash in the popularity of Overlord... but fails in just about every way.

The series is essentially a cliche isekai OP protagonist series, with it's "unique" feature being that the main protagonist is a skeleton (similar to Overlord). However, it fails to utilize this uniqueness in any way what-so-ever. His face is hidden 90% of the time, people who knows him really don't care, and he can function just like a normal person (ex. can eat like a normal person). They basically tried to take the "Momon" character from Overlord, get rid of any personality, inject generic not-badass-but-can-kill-when-he-needs good guy middle-school syndrome, have him go around beating random bad guys and called it a day.

The story is basically just the protagonist going to random place, showing his kill off randomly, save some random people, beat some random bad guy, and it has some sort of unintended effect on the political story in the background. A political story is so bareboned that it is really hard to care for, especially when political plot is a dime a dozen in Isekai (or fantasy) light novels. Similarly, characters have virtually no chemistry, making it feel as if it is several different groups of individuals that just happen to meet that one day and never spoke again.

It's not the worst I've read, but it's certain in the bottom barrel. Sure it doesn't use numbers, but the novel is bone-dry with or without it (besides, there are dozens of other Isekai stories without using heavy stats/skill levels, it isn't really that unique of a concept).

Mediocre MMO-reincarnation   
Rating: 6.0 / 10.0

Woke up this morning, picked up my phone and checked what I had been reading last night... And dropped it when I realised I didn't care. Around the end of vol 2.

Our MC is transferred or reincarnates as his highly-levelled and decked out MMO character, except his skin for that character was a spooky skeleton, so he has to hide himself in his superarmor all the time. After a while he meets some elvish slave-rescuers and is pretty much recruited to elf-saving duty. Secondary strand of the plot is the imminent civil war between the three potential heirs of the kingdom.

Thing is, it's just boring. The MC really doesn't have much personality at all, a blank slate that just follows Ariana the Super Hot Dark Elf around like a puppy, a stupidly OP puppy.

I read it up to a certain point. It was alright.

The protagonist, having been turned into a skeleton, apparently no longer has sexual desires. Yet the author/protag, makes plenty of references to how sexy or "stylish" his dark elf companion is.

I like when the author gives us thoughts of the protag, or maybe his outlook on things. In this regard, the protag is more similar to a mute, generic player character in an RPG, whose purpose in life is to silently tag along with the story plot and nods his head when asked a question.

The only two apparent motivators for the protag are the eros elf (over whom he apparently can't but still does lust over), and getting his flesh body back (probably partially relating back to the first point).

To be fair, there are some points I can appreciate; The setup of the countries is interesting, past events reflect themselves in future events (sometimes novels have apparent short term memory loss), there are some details of the skills and tactics used that give the world some life.

If faced with a binary [recommend]/[do not recommend], I would choose [do not recommend]. The world is interesting, but not enough so to overcome the thoroughly lackluster protagonist.

A nice story, worth a try

Adding to what bobIV123 wrote, v3 ch 23 in: it's your OP MC clichè story, the VRMMO transfer one. Still, it's very nicely written and more than nicely (professional level) translated.
The Main Character is a level-headed one, so no "ecchi times" nor the habitual teen oriented erotic idiocies: it's a story that develops nice and steadily, with lots of traveling and nice descriptions of places and scenery.
No "skill levels", no numerical values: one can feel the author trying to really blend in the clichè of the VRMMO player into some sort of realistic conversion of it; a funny thing is that, contrary to most novels, we don't have the staple "dimensional bag", but in its stead we have the frequent usage of a teleport-sort (leap) skill and gate travel magic.
The only real "minus" so far is the naming of two countries: Sacred VAN DAMME Kingdom (really lol) and CANADA Kingdom (re-lol). The latter explained a bit, but still they were a bit of a punch, especially in the beginning chapters biggrin

Overall it's not one of the "best series", but really worth a read.

I'm only 12 chapters in, but I'd say it's a decent read, not great, but not bad either.

So far the fights are kinda meh and lack any visceral feeling, but that's likely because the main character is a lot stronger than stuff like bandits so it's pretty one-sided.

It has a good feeling of exploration and if you like cute animals then there's plenty in it for you, though not too much for people who don't care about that.

I kinda want to compare this to overlord (novel) but I'm not far enough in yet.
