*Rant mode on*What the hell with these LNs with incredibly long and winding title as if they could not come up with more proper and straightforward title!?*Rant mode off*

Rant aside

I've read 2 vols of it (in chinese), and honestly it's not really impressive. story telling-wise, it's pretty similar to seitokai no ichizon/Onii-Ai in that it's mostly conversation-driven with bunch of spoof and manzai antics (with the MC being the tsukkomi nearly all the time). The heroines (currently there are 4 confirmed, with 2 already showing some affection for the MC, but i'll stop here since i don't wanna spoil anything) are fine, although the story basically goes nowhere and sometimes felt kinda repetitive.

Haven't read the manga so i could not tell whether it's any good or not

No, not at all (It seems folks get deceived with the word "Yuusha" on the title). It's 100% situation comedy meaning there isn't really a story, just slice-of-whatever the hell the characters do there. To sum it up, it's basically "MC as the tsukkomi, forced into silly situations, (insert the basic archetype of each girl here) and it's about their time together"

Anyway, i cannot spoil anything more than this since i dropped this LN in vol2 chapter 3 (This kind of silly harem romcom just isn't my cup of tea)

I would say it is very unlikely there will be any "epic combat" as if there was anyone like that out there it would kinda destroy the setting that of haveing a hero's skill set basicly makes him and the demon lord's heir only job option's minimum wage sales clerk jobs.

Although the manga shows Fino, the demon lords heir, can epicly run a register durring his training.

I applaud you for managing to limp your way to my register, my damned dear customer!! Mwhahahahaha
Higurashi: Its a bit like watching a trainwreck, except you keep getting to see different trains wrecking with roughly the same passengers, into a variety of different objects. Also, the trains are driven by monkeys. On LSD.

On the manga adaptation, there is one or two chapters, but that's just about it. I'm not sure about the light novel though.
