I tried to read this since it was collecting dust in my bookmark, well, it's okay-ish. I haven't read it until the latest arc of course.

While the plot is actually not that bad, there's a lot of repetitive sentences & infodump, and the mc is kind of bland, a bit pushover, plus a bit retarded too.

^ Yeah, on the kiss. Though only with her. The rest all are the ones initiating.

I actually had all those same problems with this series way back. Particularly the not checking the item box one. Though I think it's insinuated he completely checks it at some later point because he clearly knows what's in there but the reader never gets to find out until it's convenient.

My biggest issue has always been how he makes shit use of the knowledge he was given or his mana and never properly tries to learn magic. He's a really shitty excuse for a magician but I've more or less given up on him ever going anywhere as one, he's just a scythe weilding warrior.

I'm a couple of arcs behind on this now as well... I wonder if anything interesting happened yet.

Yeah, honestly if I were him I'd hunt some monster's magic stone instead. He could handle up to B-class monster solo, and A-class too together with Set. Since using skill basically no-cast while magic have to cast, it's far usable if he want to play warrior. But nope, he won't do that .. unless someone ask him, oddly.

I'm still at the go to Empire arc, not even half of the current content yet. However, I probably won't rush it to the latest arc anyway.

I caught up with the series recently. I was actually a bit surprised with how the author developed it as time passed.

^I doubt it has snusnu though. Is it?

^^Does the author repetitive pattern disappear at the later part? The part where there's always some new guy in town that looked down on him since he is physically small or try to talk to girl that is accompanying him, and always needs to be explained by his surrounding about who the mc is. Not to mention other repetitive infodump. Seriously it's pretty annoying.

Also, does the mc get "smarter" later on? In regard to the spoiler tag part that I posted above.

Yep the atmosphere resembles it quite a bit. The protagonist has a similar philosophy of crushing whoever makes an enemy of him.

For the first, I'm not really sure since it didn't bother me that much. It seemed reasonable enough given that he frequently leaves the town for months or more at a time. It actually kinda felt like he only returned to the place when the story is taking a break and in a lull for the most part half of the time since most arcs take place outside.

For the second...

I think a few points that needs to be noted is that it was stated from the start that he didn't really have much talent for anything but fire magic and he used fire magic fine from the very beginning so the author didn't really go much further with that (until later spoilers). It's pointed out sometimes that supposedly he's some super genius that figures out how to use everything by sense.
Spoiler:


The author does indeed have a habit of reserving absorption of stones until the story reached a delimitation which is sometimes reasonable and sometimes bothering. I get the impression the author just doesn't want to stop and interrupt the story for skill raising every time he encounters a new monster.

And yeah, I'm not sure why either but he's not that proactive on trying to find new stones. It's one of his interests but eh, the story gives a feel that he's doing it as a sort of hobby rather than seriously searching out every single monster in existence.

Also he really doesn't care about money period. I don't think that part is too surprising since money is trivial for his standpoint.

^Unless it's a noble. Despite there's no CCTV, no "Reward & Punishment system" like in other novel, and he can basically just kill them all and stuff the corpses in the item box ..

Well, I personally find it kinda annoying, the repetitive pattern. I tend to skip it.

Hmm, the author explanation of "magic" itself is scarce. The fact that there are few people that could use magic in that world could be one of the factor. However, the mc has the same affinity with Zepair that summoned him, not to mention the mc also inherit his knowledge and have much more mana than him. Despite all that, the mc have very little to do with his fire magic and we don't even know how good Zepair is in using said magic, other than he basically a legend. Seriously, it's super weird that he didn't even trying to train, at all.

Yeah, the author delaying absorption is kinda awkward too .. I mean, I know it's of utmost secrecy, but you basically just need to slash or feed Set with it. It doesn't even take a minute. Is there always someone sticking to his butt or what?

Yeah, the magic stone ... it's the weirdest of all. Especially if you're a gamer, you'll want to either raise the level as soon as possible or having a lot of skills .. added with the fact that there are supposedly a lot of dangerous monsters in that world. But nope ..

It's not about the money .. it's his attitude. Granted he might not want to have anything to do with slavery due to his past life, but saying "I only need this" and also gave the other stuff (other than the slave-to be) to other people that lives he saved and even also ends up escorting them at times, wtf?

From what I understand magic is the standard fantasy setting where you mutter some yadayada incantation and fire. It's supposedly extremely difficult to use magic as the protagonist does (and his magic has absurd power compared to normal mages).

The affinity thing is exactly why he has his griffin isn't it? I don't recall it being mentioned that the affinity is good for anything else. Though I agree that the author wasn't too clear on it, overall it seems as if the idea is that the protagonist mastered his fire magic from the getgo so there wasn't any training to do. Its been pointed at several points that his affinity for other elements is miserable so we won't see him using anything else.

As I said earlier though, the Empire arc did provide the turning point where the protagonist finally hit a wall and began seriously trying to become stronger so he does train after that.
Spoiler:


What's wrong with his attitude though? He more or less never laid weight in money from the start of the series so his judgments tend to be based purely on his own convenience and whims.

By affinity I meant Zepair's biggest strength also fire magic. And since the mc inherit his knowledge, logically, he should be able to do much with that magic. But it's not.

Yeah, I'm in the empire arc now. Well, it's good if he actually end up training since it's not only there are adventurers stronger than him, there's also S-class monsters.

I'm not really sure how to explain it, but he's "kind" to the weird extent. I don't think other works supposedly "kind" mcs goes that far.

^He's neither kind or generous imho
He's just giving away things that are meaningless to him

It's not only that .. he actually escort them too, not only giving them money and saved their lives.

Ah, also .. notice that I put a quotation mark in my post.

Pretty much what ^^ said which is why I said his acts of "kindness" more or less are out of his whims and convenience. Sometimes he helps people because it aligns with his purpose and sometimes he just doesn't care.

It's hard to describe but my general impression of the protagonist is pretty laid back and indifferent to most things as long as it doesn't involve his interests or people getting in his way (enemies). If I recall correctly he handled his transmigration pretty calmly as well.

Well since it hasn't happened yet, and REI is likely to think of it as trouble some and avoid it if all possible. I'd guess at least another year in the raws. There is going to have to be a plot reason for Rei to suddenly want it. I say that, but I'm still about 70 raw chapters behind since I read it in waves.

My god What is this? So the author is so detailed in his explanation when he's describing the taste of the every single food that ray and set eaten and will lend 1 or give 2 chapters how to develop the japanese cooking in this world which I dont know if its relevant to the story but only give shallow and half chapters when it comes to relationship progress between the heroines and the mc . Wow how brilliant .. its still early to judge since im only at 400+ chapters but I just cant help it ..

Is there is any progress in this part in the future chapters? I know that the story is not about romance but still, if he can give some detailed explanation about every single food then i hope that he can at least put some effort on that part too
