  • Volume 9 is out.

  • That endless “hon” From Tina feels like a localizer’s fanfiction. I wonder how it is in the japanese script.

  • binged Vol 1-7, and i like it. the writing is pretty decent. nice pacing, a good mix of serious, comedic, and idyllic moments, all while having a somewhat cohesive and smooth progression without any weird leaps. easy to read as well without any quirks. It has a slice of life tag, so perhaps that’s why there isn’t like a super serious or lofty “end goal” that the MC is trying to pursue, but the story is still interesting enough as of now. The main characters are likeable and their personalities are well fleshed out enough that they feel like actual living creatures (i’m sure you’ve read series whose characters either super robotic and one dimensional, or behaves so irrationally that they don’t even feel human). It reminds me of “Now I’m a Demon Lord! Happily Ever After with Monster Girls in My Dungeon” actually in a lot of ways, so if you like that, you might enjoy this too. It’s not a series that requires heavy investment, and i think it doesn’t take itself too seriously too, which is a good thing since it’s pretty much in the “trashy isekai harem” genre… the good thing is that it’s easy to get in and pass some time reading it, and if it ever goes downhill or becomes too boring or repetitive, it’s easy to get out and drop it too.

  • Volume 8 is out.

  • When will the pdf version be available?

  • Volume 8 please

  • I really like the MC in this trash, harem, isekai. He’s very very chill and doesn’t do all the stupid blushing, stuttering crap whenever there’s a panty slipping. He just F’s the girls he like and ride his cool spaceship and frags pirates. A LOT of MC’s could take a note from this guy.
    The world building is excellent too; deep but not very complicated.

  • I mean, this is kind of a pretty standard harem isekai trash, just focused on space. Haters gonna hate. Personally I love it. Please give me more!

  • Vol 7 pdf version…plz

  • I like authors other work the isekai minecract.

  • Everytime I wake up, Noting happens can I at least wake up as a Squig or something.

  • Really disappointed to see that the author turned an actually new kind of isekai to a typical harem shit, really disappointing even for a LN

  • Try to read The Legendary Mechanic if you want something about space war, super galaxy community, etc.

  • Eve Online Vr Dive

  • If you’re a fan of sci-fi and trying to read this, take my word: Don’t

    On the other hand if you’re looking for your typical isekai harem, still don’t. There are far better alternatives

  • As an avid sci-fi fan myself, I was so disappointed reading this novel. I was expecting grandiose space exploration, conflict between factions, political struggles, huge space battles (There are some in the story but it just feels meh to me) etc. Boy was I setting my expectations too high. It’s just your generic isekai harem but in space. The author could’ve changed the setting into your typical fantasy sword and magic world and it wouldn’t have made any difference. That’s how banal and on template this story is. Like others said, it would’ve been better if there was some struggle in regards to the main character, like the difficulty of adapting with space life, the change in culture, values and society and lastly about his morality cause boy the MC doesn’t bat an eye when killing others.

    • this is more of a Isekai with a sci-fi theme than a honest sci-fi.
      about 40% is Slice of life, 30% flirting, 20% combat and 10%politics.
      dont want to spoil to much.
      mc knows how troublesome politics are, so he actively stays away from the subject. purposely not asking questions. and keeping noticeable people at a distance if he can help it.
      though his rising fame forces his hands most of the time or he just stumble in to such situation.

  • Just my opinion I thought it was sophomoric writing and Just another forced harem story where he struggles for nothing. Literally the only thing he’s working for is to get a house so he can hopefully find soda

  • I can’t say this was bad, because it didn’t try anything and fail, it did nothing with any part of the premise. He has the strongest starship because he played a game for a long while and installed expensive upgrades, nothing more. Zero tension in any of the space combat, emphasizing how well-shielded his ship was. There was more time spent on how much money he was making or how good the food from his expensive food processor was than the fact he now has two live-in girlfriends. How did he get to this world much like, but also not like, his favorite game, with all his gear? He doesn’t know or care. How is he affected by having to kill people for real? Eh. What does he want in life? To build a house (somehow much more expensive than a high-end compact warship) and to find soda to drink. I bought it for the sci-fi theme, rare compared with all the fantasy isekai, but it was just the blandest, most middle of the road storytelling I’ve seen, maybe ever.

  • im disappointed when i know there isnt any artwork for space related technology. though, i figured out that this novel really did focus on its harem trope so much, at least :/.

  • Oh wow! This got picked up for an EN release!? I LOVE the WN/LN and have been reading the fan TLs for awhile now!
