Magi's Grandson (賢者の孫) [Web Novel]

”It's a fairly new series which started on January 2 but is ranked overall first on the quarterly charts.”

Author: Yoshioka Tsuyoshi

Synopsis, taken from Japtem:
Spoiler:


So far there are only three chapters TL'd and what I can tell from that is:
Spoiler:


Won't be reading the raws yet, I'm in the middle of reading raws of several series, too many MTs will get confusing~

The standard questions:
OP? As far as I can tell, yes.
Harem? None for now...

The naming sense is as usual a bit off.
Shin? And his grandfather Merlin?

The chapters are short enough that even I'd be able to translate them in one sitting without going bored out of my mind
wao
Nevermind, the chapters get a lot longer later on

Eh.... Starting reading this, and after about 15 or so chapters, I can see why this series got ranked first in whichever ranking it was. I just can't help laughing at the utter lack of the MC's common sense even though he's reincarnated. The first male friend he makes of the same age as him is also such a troll, to the MC's expense, so more laughs to be had. That said, hopefully the lack of common sense gags don't get repetitive for me or else it'll be difficult for me to read through everything in one sitting.

The character is pretty interesting.
I'm waiting to see how humble the MC gets and to what extent he hides/reveals his power level, been searching for one just at the right balance that I like, came across many close to bit too far in either direction always.

This, I don't know who recommended this one to me, but the sense of humor is pretty good and is kept varied, jokes and themes aren't repeated over and over. There is some seasoning of drama and action mixed in here and there, but that's there just to show the cool side of the characters.

So far my favorite part has been....

He was raised in the mountains by his grandfather, the grandfather was pretty happy with him because no matter what he teaches him, he can absorb it.

Yea, just when I was worrying about the common sense gags getting old, things changed gears and kept me going for more. The switching between serious and comedy really helps keep things fresh without making hings feel old and repetitive.

One thing that bugs me a lot about this webnovel though is that the reincarnation thing is essentially only there to explain why he's so OP with magic (ie. implementing science logic). Other than that, he doesn't seem like he was reincarnated even the slightest bit, which is a bit of a pet peeve of mine.
