epic fights

Rating: 9.0 / 10.0
in my opinion, if this turned into a manga or anime as is then I'd go out of my way to own them mainly because of the most epic battle scenes. I get some people might think that the romantic scene and other comedic scenes are childish but ine must take the readership and target audience into account so for me although I mostly read seinen this is an excellent and exciting shounen read. Definitely recommend it to people who won't just read the superficial aspects of the story

Its amazing how people commented without understanding the story

After reading all the recommendation I can't help but say something
First of all I wanna say MC wasn't really bullied that badly
surely mc is an otaku but that is because he want to follow his parents professions.
he was not push over or abused by his classmate
maybe there is some discrimination but not to the point you can call it bullying
people who never been bullied by their life love to comment about bullying when they have no single clue about it.
MC was just harass because beautiful girl in his class has crush on him but was never been bullied.
When you read again summary he is labeled incompetent but if you clearly read and understood volume1 you can see the reason of that because he already have a fix future for himself.
All along there was really no bullying just 1 group or 1 person harassing him by words which I can say thats not bullying you can bad mouth someone all you want.
MC power up was not good? I'm surprise many people say this is bad so I can't help but lol
I read a lot with same plot but I can see the power up of mc in this is unique
People who don't know how to struggle and just sitting pretty won't understand this story.
MC work really hard to power up as a result having those OP stat is a given. Read twice and maybe one well understand his power up is justified.
Then again people really don't understand this story. The so called summoned heroes here was really irrelevant because this world is a world where god play with each other and a hero is just a toy to them. They didn't expect the MC mutation as you read further you well understand this.
The harem is near perfect for me.
Many hated the loli vampire? I say aren't you guys just a bunch of real life pedophiles don't hate the mc having loli vampire just because you can't have one in real life. People who harshly comment about the loli vampire get a life.
The rabbit girl? you didn't even consider the situation why the rabbit girl was desperate and just judge her on the spot. try putting her on your shoes you might understand a little.
The Dragon girl? You haven't meet an M yet? or maybe your an M but just don't want to admit it? whats wrong being an M? its only abnormal if you think abnormal about it. Keep your perverted thoughts for your self. Its not bad to have pleasure towards pain most people like this are survivors of trauma and such that inflict to much pain towards them. yeah I'm standing to all the M out there don't be ashamed M is much better than S.
The beautiful classmate? clearly you guys haven't read everything or failed to understand anything and just bad mouth the story on spot. MC and the beautiful class mate has history. Beautiful classmate loving the mc is justified and was not just created on spot.
Having that said the girls in MC harem is wonderful although not perfect I can't say anything bad about them.
If you really read this story and didn't just drop it half way you will find the greatness of it.
Most people who commented drop it because they failed to understand then to justify there lack of understanding they harshly commented and bad mouth it. You can bad mouth the story all you want but for those who have yet to read it before judging the story try to understand a little about it.
When reading the story don't forget what you are reading is fiction which is not the same as reality.
By your Moral Standard it might be worse but at least keep it for your self.
What I notice is some people tend to comment harshly towards loli characters but clearly in there mind are just LITTLE GIRLS now tell me who is the real pervert here? loli doesn't mean little girls are you discriminating adult girls with not that mature body? a lot of 20's girl have those kind of body you know.
MC didn't change personality like what others claimed he did.
He just learn to adapt and level up his personality
As you read (really read up to the last chapter) MC didn't change that much.
surely mc fall into despair but loli vampire save him.
before you judge loli vampire read again her history shes not a little girl for crying out loud.
To future readers if your a pervert please keep your harsh comment to loli towards yourself since the MC is in love with a loli here but clearly not a little girl.
The story is one of the best for me since I clearly understand it.
The plot has good twist and turn.
The enemy (not the hero classmates) is appearing one by one making the OP MC not so OP.
Theres a lot of mystery here although I can already see the ending its a good story.
I highly recommend it to read for normal people.
I am currently reading volume 9 chapter10 all thanks to japtem team!
Again please moderate your bad mouthing people like me can easily see how much of a pervert you are by just your few words.

- Volume 10 Chapter 3 - Thanks Japtem Team ♫
Official Harem List
(Major spoiler below read at your own risk lol)
(Note: Other girls that is not in the list is not part of MC harem those people who comment girls who is not in the list are just blabbing with themselves)
I wanna add more details it seem a lot of negative comments and major misunderstanding from the girls ( I badly wanna defend them!)
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
Loli Vampire (300yrs old)
(human with Vampire Magic, A hero who was sealed because the king feared her. Was save by MC when he destroyed the seal. Thanks to her MC did not fall completely into darkness)
- MC is just 15 yrs old has been betrayed (by 1 person who was jealous of him) fall into the abyss lost his arm eaten poisonous food just to survive and started to hate and curse everything each passing day. He would become the Demon Lord if the loli Vampire haven't save him. In such situation If you don't fall in love with your Saviour. You are just a Garbage and Trash Human Being. No offend to all pedophiles but Loli Vampire does not fall as a child of age around 11 below (since you guys always imagine this) for me her image is a mature gilr around the age of 20 but has a child like body I see no reason to deny this since I see alot of girls like this in college. So keep you perverted thoughts for yourself.
(Unique girl in the bunny tribe, MC save her whole village from destruction. Falls in love with MC and decided to follow him)
-The situation was like this Bunny girl was a unique girl in her village a one of a kind because the bunny tribe is a peace loving tribe they literally don't know how to fight. Bunny girl can see the future and once her tribe was in trouble of complete annihilation and from her clairvoyance bunny girls only hope was our mc. Bunny girls action was of course desperate because she is the reason why her tribe well all be killed. All in all Bunny girls is not as bad as other say. All I can see is A honest girl Who well do anything for her family. A girl who Finally found a place in a world that she always feel she is alone. Her only salvation is the MC it was not love at first site more of If she wan't to continue living her only choice was a future together with mc.
Black Dragon Girl (600yrs old)
(Strongest girl in Dragon Race became an M all thanks to MC torture in her ass. Falls in love in MC because MC was the only man who defeated her and teach her pleasure in pain)
- Well normally we hate M but since I am not normal and I hate to prejudice I can only say this Dragon Girl is another good girl. why? Her mission was to observe the world but she was trick and hypnotize by one of the summoned hero(The classmate that the mc killed) First The rule of the Dragon tribe only follow the strongest but the Dragon girl is the strongest of her tribe so she failed to find a partner (one of the reason she took the mission) and here we have the MC who clearly defeated her. She was a great help for the mc she is second strongest (loli vampire is the 1st) in mc harem. If you really read the story you can see the effort she make to be clearly get the affection og the mc to the point that she is more desperate than to our bunny girl.
Beautiful Classmate
( Top beauty in MC class, has a crush in MC because of her past encounter although mc doesn't remember her.)
- She is the reason why MC was bullied by a single person ( NOT BY THE WHOLE CLASS you are reading a wrong novel here)
- She have past encounter with mc that made her fall in love with him

Hot Mama of myuu (New*)
(Myuu's mother who accept MC as myuu papa, nothing much to say since she just appeared at Volume 10 chapter 1 but looking forward for her to join MC harem!)
It's an MILF I seriously wanna read more about this but japtem has been neglecting this novel for awhile now.

Finally I wanna clarify that this girls might be part of the so called harem but out MC only love the loli vampire at the moment and has no love interest towards the other girls. MC do a lot of sexual intercourse with loli vampire but as you can see only those phedophile (with there dirty minds) well react badly by this. MC and loli vampire love each other to hell with your morals LOVE conquers all!

Here we are again for the OP comments and Bad mouthing

Another cliche story turns to be piece of garbage
Rating: 3.0 / 10.0 by ryanovsky
- I guarantee this person is a real life pedophile or lolicon
Notice his comment his does not hate the novel but just bad mouth the loli part
He also badmouth the harem and have judge the story wrongly based on it..Seriously Garbage reader should just STFU.. You claimed you don't understand English yet still have the word to bad mouth others work.. For crying out loud try writing a novel and let see if you can do better than this.

Lame and Rotten
Rating: 1.0 / 10.0 by Bleach-No1-Manga
- yeah I bet all the novel you read you feel Lame and Rotten a good reflection to your self.

Why the hell is this fanfiction could be so damn popular ?
Rating: N/A by Synchfalcon
- It is called FICTION for crying out loud. Please researched fiction or just google it for me you are one of those people who knows the word but ignorant of its true meaning.
- This person is clearly a woman hater.. You can see how biased he portrait the females on MC harem. Some people failed to see this on themselves yet clearly reflected on there words and actions. Look for a psychiatrist there might still be hope on your case.( A person who suggest to bang there head in the wall has clearly a serious mental disorder)

For the haters and Trasher who is only fun in life is to say bad things to other peoples work!
The Human Mind is deep once you judge something as Trash even if its glitter in Gold all you can see is trash in front of you.
Your actions and words reflect your very soul so think twice before saying something especially when you want to bad mouth something.
Once a pervert always a pervert so please don't hate some fictional character just because you are jealous of his circumstances.

I love this novel this is one of the few treasure in the countless novels I read If you say something bad I can't stop you from saying it but I can at least speak and defend this amazing novel.

A great fanfiction for daydreamer brats out there.  
by DarkFalzLoser
March 14th, 2015, 2:03am
Rating: N/A
The MC, Hajime is an average otaku without any outstanding trait. One day, he and his class got snatched into a fantasyland of swords and magic as chosen heroes to combat an army of demons.

Now here's some aspects that made me completely loathe this series :
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
- Romance scenes are so poorly done as if written by a 10-years old brat.
- Author ripped off several concepts from other series, and i'm pretty sure it's not a mere reference.
- Utterly ridiculous power growth of Hajime.
- Harem members are garbage-quality.
- Hajime's overpoweredness and terrible characterization made other OP chars such as Shiba Tatsuya looked like a well-written character.
- If you're male and not Hajime then you're nothing more than a garbage dumpster.
- Major villain is just to remind us how awesome our lord and savior.

Don't misunderstand me. I love series featuring OP mains and harem but this one is just terrible and horrendous.

first thing you got to remember is that this is a web LN!
as a light novel i think this is one of the better written one out there. althought MC's OP but not as bad as many other LNs as you read alone the chapters, handling of characters is definitely in the high upper class of the LN writters-unlike even some popular writters who 'lose' characters in the story due to having too many of them.
as a LN i think it is most important that the story should be enjoyable to read and i think this writer definitely done it well.

If A Bad Fanfic Got Approved  
by Dudeorama
March 8th, 2015, 12:46am
Rating: 3.0 / 10.0
Like the title says, this LN is basically if one of the worse fanfics got published. As everyone is saying, the way the MC and his class is introduced into this world is typical and cliched, the characters are predictable and again cliched, even the way MC and to a lesser degree his classmates get powerful is predictable and cliched.

Some people say they liked the MC's personality after his power-up(which is actually his 2nd personality change) and hate is personality after meeting the "loli-vampire"(which is his 3rd, and not his last) but here's the thing. Before that change the MC's situation was like if someone was given just a utility-belt while everyone else was given superpowers, but that utility-belt could be as decked out as Batman's. And before the "betrayal" he and his classmates were finally seeing him in a different light, but right when it's getting good, right when he's reaching a level of pseudo-originality, he "dies" and undergoes a power-up of a eyerollingly high level that your eyes might pop out, jump on the floor and drill through the earth(exaggeration obviously).

The story begins to go so far up the average teenager's butt that you could call the cops for statutory rape. Everything else is just power fantasy and BAD haremness. That's to say there can be good harems, even mediocre harems, but this sure ain't one. Every single character after that point, new and old, is just used to either show just how powerful the MC is, become the MC's love interest, or show just how useless everyone else is.

I would equate it to a bad Dynasty Warrior game, key being bad not unplayable. Even a bad Dynasty Warrior game can be fun to certain people. Unfortunately if you have even a little bit of curiosity then this likely won't be for you, but if you can turn off your brain, not question even a little bit of what something means or why someone did anything, and enjoy it it can be a good time waster, but even then you likely won't come back to it.

Have you ever found you're self reading a [mostly action] manga or LN you're 7 to 10 volume invested then you look at genre and it says romance or romantic sub-plot but all you have got are mc caught her in the nude and gets slapped or their faces get a little close and the heroine hinted at liking the mc or said in the story but not directly to mc then after reading another 5-12 volumes and they finally get it all and you're so happy but then 1-3 volumes the story end with the epilogue with them getting married or traveling then you realize I've only see them as a couple for so little time and it's over ain't it a bummer unless there is a reason like trauma or something along the lines and not just a dense dumb ass but with this the MC meets heroine trapped underground for a month or two after getting out they both know they love each and they get though what most would take a series to get to very refreshing in that part.

Authors this days seems to miss the difference between being a tough anti-hero and being an as**ole. If you want to see an unnecessary cruel overpowered child constantly abusing women who, of course, fall for him. Well, he is cruel and brutal any chance he gets... except when he meets the one guy he has a reason to hate, he just let's it go.
As many said, it all goes downhill after the mc finds the loli vampire. Is not that i dislike romance, but it is just awkward and poorly handled in this LN. Romantic scenes seems to come out form the mind of a 13 y/o kid.
The only two characters with a functioning brain are Meld and the sword-girl. The teacher, who should be the voice of wisdom for this teenagers lost in this strange world is just as childish as them, endlessly dwelling in her guilt over an event it was clearly not her fault.

Garbage indeed

I lasted a bit longer than other reviewers before losing all interest as well.

Let me tell you: it was badly done from the very beginning, but where it REALLY starts to fall apart is when the perspective switches to the other 'heroes' who are SO DUMB as to be completely unrealistic and terribly annoying.

Unfortunately, the miserable author feels the need to spend COUNTLESS CHAPTERS focused entirely on these losers, in the all too obvious, ham-fisted attempt to then wow the reader by showing how the MC will *not be retarded* like the others and hence not fail miserably in the same situations (thanks in no small part to him be so ridiculously OP).

Ugh. It was so painful to watch these morons proudly 'compete'.

... Sometimes in life, you find yourself dumpster-diving and consuming trash, in the slim hopes you will find that rare pearl. Unfortunately, in this case the briefly fun parts become fewer and farther apart, and the growing cast starts to get really unwieldy quite fast:

Spoiler (mouse over to view)
Up to the point that I could stomach, the MC gets the following harem:
- loli? vampire (I didn't get the sense she was that loli, but rather flat-chested and adult, but maybe that was my wishful reading)
- desperate rabbit girl
- pervert girl with pseudo-BDSM and anal fixations
- most beautiful girl of ALL the girls from his class (*of course*) who loves him for some lame reason they have not yet revealed but that will surely be something like having noticed him, years ago, nonchalantly save a kitten.

Strangely, the MC even adopts a deeply annoying brat girl and starts to 'act out' like a deranged father in all sorts of demented scenarios that do nothing but deeply impress upon you just how inexperienced and retarded the author is.

The author is so dumb that he can't find any other way to give his MC advantages than either through his OP-ness or through the retarded-ness of his competition, so simple things like building a good relationship with this little girl is achieved through a progression of really awkward social scenes wherein the MC physically dominates and scares everyone, to an absurd degree, just because his little princess 'feels scarred'.

Of course, because he keeps feeding her attention this way, she does nothing but continue to act weak, full of fear and in constant need to be saved, essentially acting out for more attention from 'papa' - PUKE!

Complete garbage after first few chapters  
by Kuranz
January 27th, 2015, 8:22pm
Rating: 1.0 / 10.0
Like many light novels, it starts out decently with the usual transportation of a bunch of high schoolers to be "heroes" in a new world. So the MC is a weak as hell least there's some growth to look forward to, right? WRONG. The entire start goes down the drain and the MC suddenly becomes the definition of OP and his personality entirely vanishes. The author betrays the reader's intelligence and pulls one of the most disgusting character development moves possible. He could have done so much more with the MC but 100% gives in to teenagers' wish fulfillment.

Think this is bad? No, it gets even worse when he introduces the
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
and from there on, the dialogue is completely unreadable. Anyone with any self dignity will want to facedesk hard with each passing line or as the author's favorite line is: "pop a vein."

Do yourself a favor and avoid this unless you have a scientific interest in how bad a novel can go.

The story was going so well until the lolicon vampire showed up. Sad to say that the story took a downhill since they focused on flirtation and romance more so than his quest for retribution.
