I kinda like the novels with ability stealers but this one scores too high on the pervert schale.

MC spends 1/2 of his time doing pervert stuff like using wind spells to see undies or when he gets the curse magic, first spell he gets is conveniently the s*xual attraction curse and what is MC first reaction? Mixing it with water spells to make tentacles magic...

I can bare some stuff here and there but it’s so constant that the story is slow really really slow.

Plus fights are boring... more>> as hell and the author’s writing style is bad. If you like the genre go check “To deprive a deprived person” <<less

This work is disappointing on many different levels. The plot is almost nonexistent, and what is there is thrown into the readers' face out of nowhere. The objectives of the protagonist are not only simplistic and childish, but they are also counterproductive. Events do not unfold logically, but are instead staged by the author in an artificial manner to either needlessly benefit the protagonist or advance his harem; what type of slavers would summon an unknown individual that they expect will have a powerful and unique ability, and not enslave... more>> said individual immediately? Especially when the act of enslavement requires only a drop of blood and holds no repercussions for the slaver.

The most disappointing aspect of this story, however, it the protagonist himself: A genius individual who has mastered virtually every martial art and sport, yet somehow lacks the discipline gained while or needed to master them in the first place. Instead he possesses the personality of an extreme pervert, but doesn't feel comfortable touching his slave harem for fear of knocking them up. Additionally, after 80 chapters the protagonist shows absolutely no character development. He gains numerous skills and abilities, which in turn should benefit his martial arts as he practices a style that supposedly adapts to any situation. When he faces an opponents however, rather than utilize a method derived from a combination of his old and new abilities, the author instead adds new aspects to his old abilities with no warning.
Spoiler

Being barraged by stones? The protagonist has mastered tennis and is able to return those stones with his sword, killing the enemies who threw them. Told a monster is best fought at range? He's mastered baseball and throws a stone at the monster, killing it in one hit.

[collapse]
It's as if the author has created a protagonist that is far smarter than the author, and as a result the author is inadequate to develop the character's abilities.

In short this story is poorly conceived, featuring little plot with no foundation and a broken protagonist that is beyond the abilities of the author to develop properly. If one wants to read a story featuring skill theft, a supporting slave harem, and NPC elements, look elsewhere. This story is towards the bottom of that particular barrel, and much better examples exist.

Fairly interesting and pretty lighthearted. However, I don't want to sound like a d*ck but, well, the translator is kind of making it a bit complicated to take a read so my interest on the novel wavers. I do apologize but, yeah. To each their own.

The plot itself is a basic OP MC IsekaI Harem story. That is why I picked it up and read it till where I did. If that is what you are looking for, however, due to the reasons mentioned below, as of the 31st of July 2017, (while 151 is the latest chapter listed here), I would not recommend starting to read this series right now, especially if you want a hassle-free reading experience.

I quite enjoyed this series, but as someone else has already mentioned, the translators are... more>> making chapters increasingly difficult and inconvenient to access. TYH has been forcing me to go through a timed ad page similar to ad fly, complete captchas, and go to their patreon page to read chapters 146-151. To read 152, you need to either pay $15 on patreon, or download a mobile app just to read their releases. The chapter was listed here on NU, but has been taken off since then, probably due to that reason. The story is good, but not good enough to warrant that much extra work, in my opinion. I personally have decided to put this series on hold until the TL either improves, or changes.

I'm only on chapter 18, so it might change later on, but so far it's the same as most "summoned as OP character in a RPG-like world with slaves".

What I mean by this is a MC that is OP for the sole reason of the story (here, it comes from "stealing" martial arts from our world before reincarnating/transmigrating). He is described as having mastered a lot of martial arts, and being the strongest in his martial art oriented family for generations, and yet he remains your standard japanese main... more>> character.

By this I mean virgin, selfless and apologetic when saving a girl, completely clueless on how the world works, and that damn "I want to stay low profile" that's so ingrained in japanese society. So all in all, a forgettable main character that's going strait down the route of OP and slave harem.

Some of those novels at least try to redeem themselves with at least semi-interesting side characters and slaves, but everyone so far is just depicted as a NPC, and his first slave is so one dimensional that there is a line strait up saying "The feelings of Spica for Yuuto changed from 【respect】 to 【worship】. " In chapter 17.

The translation so far is fairly good despite being machine translation. It is clearly edited and proofread much more than most machine translations, I have yet to find places where I want to punch my screen for phrases that are not even close to grammatically correct.

I know it's not flawless, and if you search for inconsistencies in the translation, you'll find plenty because machine translation can only go so far, but at least it's mostly proper english phrasing, which is more that quite a lot of machine translations out there.

So bottom line is that the story is average at best, but the translation is above average, so if the theme is what you were looking for, go for it.

The Main character is really very easy going in making his harem, up until now he has already seduced the 2 women he saw, by making them owe to him for rest of their life. I don’t know where he will stop like right now he bought a mansion which can easily occupy 100 plus peoples and really want to know what will happen next.

This light novel doesn't lie on its premise, it is what it is, nothing more and nothing less. The other world setting, is just there for the sake of having girls for different types of fetishes and make the MC look OP. It doesn't try to have a pretense of a plot, and that is why we next know next to nothing about the MC. Like I said before it is what it is, pure self-indulgence and nothing more. The LN doesn't divulge anything about the MC until the narrator... more>> needs to give an explanation, about why he is so amazing at something. The MC is also honest, though generic but also decisive (no beta male here) and bland enough so self-insert.

Overall, it is complete crap (it is incredible how issues this thing has), but each chapter is short enough to not become unbearable (sometimes). As a time waster for an everyday read it is short and easy to read, but if you read large chunks of this bullsh*t for a few hours it will become deadly for your brain cells.

First of all, I like this story. However, there are multiple problems with it. The attitude of the MC is happy go lucky which is fine, he is not dense and is the hero of girls. The problem is that the MC is perfect, what he lacks he gets in magical abilities. The characters are set in stone and are introduced as lovable but stupid characters, in short, they lack depth. The chapters are very short and it made me wonder if this story was actually a draft or skeleton... more>> for a light novel.

There no next to no descriptions of the environment or characters. One of my main problems with this story is that it should basically be a fap story, and it is introduced in a way that the MC will at some point have s*x with his 'slaves' but the author is afraid of a R-18 rating. Wait what? The author made a s*xual harem story for kids? The translation is a bit below average, the overall translation is good and revised without any major error, though many of the sentenced seem kinda flat and dull. Might just be the author though. Overall I can't give it more than 2, 5 - 3. The story really seems to be the rough sketch of a normal ln. The story could be good but it really lacks flavor, it wins it's audience with a fast paced story and fan service. Btw it took me about an hour to read all the translated chapter... (114). This is a manga in text. <<less

It is indeed only subpar in terms of story telling skills. The author is not truly skillful in writing the plot, which makes it a little cliche. But that's alright, the concept is pretty interesting. It's still early to say whether this will have s*xual plot like Former Hero series or being subtle like Death March, but in anyway, if you like those two series, and also like these following series, you'll probably like this one too.

We have story with just another reincarnated+harem+OP-MC theme.
The good is, no echI just like most of this kind of theme. And, I like it.
It's not that I don't like echi, but sometime, echi+harem, it'll be more like censored H. And, I don't like after some paragraphs to read fan service scene.

The plot is really cliché, someone getting transported in another world and gain a unique ability which makes him extra OP and creates his harem... The slight twist is that he's already OP in the other world as well because he's a genius martial artist, he's not one of those losers rejected by society who wants to make it up for his past mistakes (ex : arifureta, mushoku tensei, tenseI sh*tara...). So the question of returning back to his world is asked quite naturally.

For now, we're not very deep... more>> into the story but it got me hooked, there are no dead parts. While being extremely predictable, it's also really entertaining. The set up makes it so that the hero has to understang the "settings", it's not quite clear how his abilities level up, etc... So we're discovering it with him and it's not an explanation bot-like situation likes in most novels of the same genre. If you like some OPness, then this novel is quite enjoyable. <<less

This is a nice story overall, and has quite interesting characters and abilities. But... it's slowly getting out of hand, with the MC slowly turning this story into a borderline R18 story.
Spoiler

Even more so with the fake chapters, lol.

[collapse]

Well, it's enjoyable on the ecchI scale, so go for it if it's what you like. But the quality of the story drops slowly, so be warned.

The issue I have with this novel is the quality of writing. Notably, the author’s story telling ability is generic and not very engaging despite having a pretty good concept. Granted, it’s a template story but I’ve read many template stories that were both well written and engaging despite being totally unoriginal.

Fortunately it’s still early on and it might get better as the story progresses; however, as it is now, at best it’s a 3 or 3. 5 out of 5; I added the 0. 5 because I really... more>> like the concept even though I think that the quality of writing is poor.

While this is another novel from japan about a guy getting transported to another world and decides to create a harem... the twist is not that bad.
The MC's unique skill is the set up to help him become OP in order to create a harem...
While the translations are machine at the moment, and can be considered slightly. (okay more then that.) bad at least we get the meat of the story.

I do recommend this if people just want to read a story about a... more>> man who becomes OP and starts to build a harem... and doesn't mind machine translations. (the grammar is good though so + on that.) <<less

most of everyone like this kind of genre lately; OP MC and his happy go lucky attitude, with several slave harem member roaming in isekaI world with game setting, MC’s kinda pervert and honestly this story has a potential but author failed to show it and make this novel kinda boring, but if there’s nothing to read I’ll read this
