Synopsis :
A Japanese salary man stays logged in until the online service for the game ends, which results in the creation of a mega plot device similar to SAO and Log Horizon. Which in my opinion look more like Log Horizon rather than SAO because he rather calm about the situation and analyze what just happend. Btw, the skull that sit on a throne is our MC.

[My personal opinion]..........Yeah, who want to go back to the real world, reality suck.
I just want to share this wonderful novel to anyone who still doesn't know about this series yet, peace.

Instead of not going back to the real world, it's more like he doesn't want to the adventure to end.

Yeah, you can see it that way either.
Imoutololicious already translated prologue and 1/3 of ch.1 (we all know how Imoutololicous work).

I'm getting a good vibe from the fact that he equipped all his best items before he was thrown into the real world.

The problem with the MMO themed stories is that I believe it's one of those things were, at least for some of us, it only works once; since a lot of it is just "novelty" and little else. And once the novelty is gone it's mostly just salty nostalgia towards bad memories, along with the bad taste that this is literally "fantasy oroboros" genre so the main character can pull a giant penis sword out of his ass at any point and there are barely any rules to prevent that, which makes things dull—both from a lack of anticipation and a lack of expectations.

A world where anything and everything can exist on whim isn't very exiting, since if for example a big dragon comes then that's no big deal since a bigger dragon can just come out again, and then a bigger one; and story mechanics wise that's encouraged, because it's a MMO.

I didnt read the synopsis so dint actually realize what I was reading in the prologue, so it was all at least a bit enticing, but as soon as chapter one starting pouring the "greatest MMO" divel, everything that I had just read faded to junk.

a true necromancer can be one of the most broken classes all advantages of a summoner and no cons

Just curious, but is it just the main character stuck or a large population of players? If it's just him it changes the dynamics of how I expect him to interact with his new world.
