Petty? Illogical? maybe so...but every time I see it, that's what it makes me feel for some reason. Maybe it reminds me of certain annoying MCs or those arrogant "riajuu" side characters you want to see get run over...I dunno'.
You nailed it bro~ he looks like that hagure yuusha guy

a cocky guy with condescending gaze, like an antagonist riajuu which... doesn't really matter, it's originally a webnovel, it didn't have illustrations initially, let's just consider this a blunder on the artist's side

if his powers are within the system then it's perfectly okay for him to show off~

The second cover is much more delicious with the Yuri undertones

As many narou titles, this can be enjoyable as long as you pretty much totally give up on any semblance of encountering originality or uniqueness. (If you can read shiro no koukoku, you'll be fine with this )

The reason you can't get any originality is cause each scenario has been done to the death, LIKE EVERYTIME JAPAN HAS SOMETHING UNIQUE. The only thing you can look forward to is its execution. So go with that(I do, Arifureta,Word Master and Tate no Yuusha are the ones I find the most enjoyable cause of the execution, 85% of the scenarios in each are cliche as hell). The only time Japan won't do that is when the original is god-tier awesome like DBZ and no others in the same setting can keep up with it

About volume 2 cover. He looks a lot less irritating and kinda nice

Blunder? What blunder?

I don't understand why you guys are getting pissed at that cover.... The guy has a bright and confident smile on his face, and that's a good thing. At least much better than having the usual "I don't know what to do now" with a troubled smile plastered on his face all the time like an indecisive bitch.

I like that smile, I think we could be good friends.

I must say though, I'm really liking this novel so far. The guy kicked God on the face in their first meeting, kaka!

It quite fits the character in my opinion.

二度目 is read as "nidome". Why is it "nidoume"?

Speaking of which, what is their relationship to Renya? Okashira gave us that spoiler about the nun girl, but is their entire connection

For those who want to know, the story is that there is a world where the souls are all refusing to be reincarnated there as they died violently and so she decided to send Renya there as a kind of stop-gap measure. Other than the enchantments listed above, she give him a shinai which was enchanted with "indestructible" property.

And now the funny part
