Yeah I know that it is too early for review, but i'll write one anyway.

So.. Why do I give this novel 5* is because I love the original version of the story and I have no reason to think that reboot version would be worse, because if anything reboots are usually more polished. Some may think that this is just another boring isekai story wich is seen many times already and are not interested to give this a try because of it. So, let me tell you some positive things... more>> (to me at least) about this novel.

  • Well made characters
  • Interesting plot
  • No harem and echi
If you also found those 3 things favourable to your tastes then give this novel a try. <<less

This reboot is a revised version of the original series. Basically, it focus on the removal of unnecessary (depend on how you see it) details, addition of minor plots, adjustment of the flow of the story. The main plot itself remain mostly unchanged. This is not a new story. Also, this is a slice-of-life, not a battle novel so its tempo is slow.

The original story should have many reviews already, so let's speak of the differences instead:

  • Ojou-sama is less cheap, it takes more time (months - as oppose to a few days in the original series) for Ryouma to become her friend. Her behavior is exactly the same though.
  • Replace the obvious bad guy with an obvious good guy. I don't know if the bad guy will reappear in someway, but for now, I haven't seen him yet. You'll know who I'm talking about if you read both versions. The new character, however, doesn't do anything to alter the flow of the story. Not that he doesn't do anything, but he doesn't do anything significant; at least not yet.
  • A group of background characters got a big upgrade: the group of 6 who secretly follow Ryouma group to collect monster corpses that was left behind in the abandoned mine quest. There's various new small events, interactions with Ryouma. It's a big change. They're more than a mere group of 6 now.
  • New business ideas: it's less than a side job, he completely delegate the entirety of the business to someone else. Therefore, it doesn't affect the main plot.
  • Foreshadowing/explanation. The progress of how some of the slime turn out the way they are is explained:
    • Iron Slime, Metal Slime: they now have a bit of story behind how they came to be able to transform into weapons.
    • Wine Slime (or Alcohol, I don't remember well) : doesn't suddenly appear out of no where, but there's a proper occasion where it was feed wine.
  • New events: these appear around the time of the Treant collection request. These are entirely new contents. I'm not sure where it's going yet, however, as these happen in the time that was originally empty in the original version, I think the story will eventually go back to the original plot. As I remember, the events focus on Ryouma's interaction with other characters such as his employees, the group of 6 mentioned above, the slum, new characters, etc. Look forward to it.

As you can see, the author didn't make much changes (if any at all) to the main plot (at least not yet). The revised part progress differently, but the result is the same. The new contents fill the empty time frame (times skipped such as *6 months later*), so they're unlikely to affect the main plot, they do add more explanations as to how Ryouma developed his and his slimes' abilities though.

Earlier chapters progress in mostly the same manner as the original, so there's little meaning to read it if you has already read the original story, I think it's better to wait for later parts which has completely new events added, or read it with the mindset of rereading the story.

As for those who hasn't read the original yet, I recommend reading this version instead. Although some details are omitted, they're ones that you'll hardly missed (to be frank, I know that some parts were removed, but I can't remember them, so it should be trivial enough to be forgotten). The reboot has new contents as well, so you'll get more than you lost. Don't worry about missing out.

Same with Haruko over there, I read the original translation a LONG time ago. But it’s really good. Also, don’t leave after reading the first part of the prologue because you’d have been fooled. It’s not super mysterious, but the author always makes sure to make you have at least one question on your mind, and they do get answered with time. Now toodaloo. Read this stuff iz güd.

Like Dino Transla said, some of the story line from the old TMPG has been cut and putted a newer once. But still the story has been progressing so far as the MC has been interacting the Jamil Household and how greatly he cares for them.

... more>>

I like how Ryouma polite he is even though someone was extremely jealous of him at the tamer guild (which is the guild master and still not on the TMPG reboot)


Anyways I recommend you readers who wants to read this, is that don't read this for sometime so the chapters will accumulate (so you will not get a cliffhang diabetes) and just try to be patience and urge yourself to wait. <<less

The story is nice and the Translator is good and has a steady track record. The release speed of the raws is sadly slow at the moment.

Compared to the original work, this one is more fleshed out. Simply put, the author got better and he has a second chance.

I'm guessing that the author will also fix his flaw of not expanding the world and factions, which lead to him writing himself into a position where a lot of build up would have been required to continue the story.

the story is character driven, so after Ryoumas character was explored then his interaction with Elia and her friends should probably receive more time and evolve further in this version
