This was a one shot and I didn't really know how it would go but wow.

It might be short but does it ever deliver.

It takes a cliche of fantasy and twists it on its head with humor and grace.

And it ends just at the right time too, wonderful!

Loved this story. Concise, entertaining and the pace was just right.

Expected nothing and got surprised.

I only went into this story because it was so short, as the premise didn't look that appealing to me (you can only read so many bad 'isekai' aka transported to another world novels, before feeling tired of them). Thought that even if it was a bad one, I can just finish it fast and go to sleep. Got pleasantly surprised in the end. Story flows well and the jokes were well executed. I must say that I usually dislike forced anime/weeb humor, but in this case it at least didn't outstay its welcome and the small part where it was in, only made the story better. All in all a solid 5/5

I had a good laugh.

 

It's a simple, short story, about a hero (man) who looks like a girl, choosing the safe path of holy maiden, became the inspirations for many (three actually) young heroes to defeat the Demon King.

Is it a masterpiece? Compared to many novels out there.... ofc it's not. There are still many spaces for improvements. 

Is it enjoyable? Damn yeah why the hell do you think I even bothered to write a review? I rarely wrote one and I felt the need to write it for this novel.

Keep up the good work and keep improving, author. I'm rooting for you!!

I mean... Don't a lot of people pick the female lead just for that very reason?

10/10 loved the suprise at the ending 

Gives a great lesson, when you've beaten an enemy just kill it so no one Snipes your kill wink

This was extremely enjoyable. Had a "bleurgh" day, and this became the perfect cure.

The jokes were just right, it flowed straight to the point, and it parodied the right stuff at the right places.

It's short, but it's worth the read for the laughs and giggles.
