Review By JLN’s Community
Holy crap that shit’s good. the pacing for the overall story I thought was too slow, 13 volumes amount to around 4 to 6 books for normal novels but only 2 major arcs was done but still, good god it can be sweet, it can be exhilarating, I thought it would be another OP harem crap (there are good OP harem and there are crap OP harem) but no, not at all, shit’s good. the world is also pretty consistent. can’t wait for more. really great. definitely top tier LN but I don’t know if it’s for every isekai junkie. well if you like the 1st volume, you’ll love it, at least there’s that. not the same with shield hero where the writing (skill, technique but not really the story and characters) was pretty bad on the first 5 volumes. this one, if you read the 1st you’ll immediately know if you’ll love it or not.
