The Anime Trope System volume 2 brings with it, humor, anime tropes and… yanderes, references, perverseness, and a lot of character development.
So, let’s level up and accidentally capture the hearts of anime girls while at it…
Volume 3's description.
The Anime Trope System is back in a 3rd action-packed, humor-packed, adventure in Satovia. Clyde’s next threat comes in the form of a classmate. While her descent occurs, the young man must deal with hornets (the monster girl kind), prepare to meet up with vampires, and even depose Alice’s father, the demon lord, once and for all.December’s volume will make you wish to be a part of Clyde’s party. His evolution from college boy to leader still has a way to go. But…how long will the gods stand by while a new rival rapidly grows.?-----------
Volume 4's description.
It's festival time! All would be perfect, fun, competitive. Well, try telling the vampires not to crash the damn party.January's volume arrives, a fourth book containing Clyde and his amazing party, humor and ass-kicking, happy and sad moments.While Clyde continues to strengthen himself so that he wouldn't die to the Viper, figures and organizations begin to move in the background. Join again to accidentally capture more anime girl hearts and combat those tropes...
Volume 5's description:
Ah, peace! Exams, a tiny break from the fighting, relaxation. Yeah, right. First of all, who left a certain potion in the fridge! Second, what will it take to get some common sense into the team ninja’s head. Clyde would like to know. Third, it is time to face a threat that has lurked in the city since volume 1…Clyde and his party is back in February’s issue, ready to dish out some fun in Satovia. Welcome to the fifth volume—and more anime shenanigans…
A questline mentioned in the very early volumes has finally pulled Clyde's interest. Niyoto. However, it isn't some side quest or filler. In this city, things will get very interesting. From being introduced to a quite frightening faction that claim to fight for the good of humanity, crazy cultists, a demon lord with a rather...different personality, the sixth volume comes in strong.Clyde and his party is back in March's issue to take a step toward the ultimate goal of being strong enough to defeat the Viper.And the anime tropes continue to show themselves. Do you believe in the heart of the cards?
Volume 9: stakes incredibly high, very intense! A dark volume. Can the team bounce through this?

This is the kinda story I've been looking for.
A Persona game in written form. It is fantastic.
Clyde, our mc, is your average pragmatic guy suddenly thrown into a world full of anime tropes. His reaction to this is fantastically normal. He's given some decent character development and his juggling of the harem system is great.
Our sidecharacters start out as cookie-cutter trope characters that slowly evolves into independent characters. Most of them are likeable and funny, though some can get a bit annoying simply because their tropes are annoying.
The writing style is really pleasant, with smooth flow. Feels like a more profesionally made Light Novel.
Can't really complain when it comes to grammar. As a non-native speaker I didn't really notice anything wrong.
With all that out of the way, it's time for the massive flaw. Spoiler ahead.
With the introduction of rapey monsters girls we get our first encounters with rape. Which is fine, it's quite normal with ''rape'' scenes where the victims secretly enjoy it. You can also play it for laughs which our mc and his friends do.
Imagine my surprise when we get our first rape of a girl. I did not expect screaming, crying and a sense of helplessness. There's no tags that warn of this coming at all. Not mention that comedy tag being extremely misleading.
The last 4th of the story is pretty much a rape and attempted rape fest.
Doesn't help that the mc suddenly finds out that actual real rape is funny. The man went from a pretty decent, nice mc to total scum.
If that's not something that bothers you, I can really recommend this story. It is really well written and would have been great if it weren't for that one massive flaw.
This story has an interesting premise and is for the most part well executed.
Unfortunately there is one point that has caused me to drop this story in disgust.
In the story a male character is raped by a female. The other characters then tease him about this. This is used as a running joke by the author.
Rape in not a joke.
Rape victims are not a joke.
It does not matter that the victim is male.
Treating rape as a joke ruined what would otherwise be a fun story.
I am very dissapointed.
Got about 60 chapters in and have dropped this like it was red hot.
Nothing wrong with the grammar and mechanics of writing. It is the characters and actions that drove me away.
I guess it was being true to the title, 'Anime Trope' and boy does it hit all the buttons and not even remotely in a good way. Whomever you are, you'll find something to squick you here.
What would you do if you got forced into an actual anime? With full knowledge of the BS tropes that will be thrown at you.
Work the angles, minimize the downs, and maximize the ups. Yandere girl? Check. Slow building harem trope that is not super compatible with aforementioned yandere? Check. Rapey monster girls? Check. Murderous demon abominations slowly taking over? Check. Exploit their weaknesses, and build your strength to survive what is basically a death game with anime style.
So far, has very few grammatical mistakes, and uses the tropes in an intelligent manner (my biggest fear going into this).
Characters are pretty well done- they basically all start out as tropes, but flesh out into layered characters fairly quickly.
Lots of action, fights with strong enemies. Overall one of the better stories on RR, hope the author continues.
Definitely looking forward to more as of volume 1 end.
P.S. Chika is the best girl
The MC is entertaining, to a point, but the story gets power creep really early and every major point of plot urgency is Deus Ex-ed to the extent that nothing seemed difficult for the MC outside of relationship problems.
I got to the middle of Volume 7 before stopping, it helped there were plenty of great steamy scenes to break it up, but how can I root for a hero who never fails or overcomes some obstacle greater than himself?
Wish this story was better, the premise is an interesting one, but in the end the plot and characters moved from tropes to cliches and now all that's left is something that could have been better.
I'm pretty damn sure there were more chapter before, did you decide to rewrite the story?
You see a lot of fictions that use anime tropes, as well some that acknowledges certain situations as cliche.
But this is the first fiction I've read that not only has a world based around these tropes, but also has an MC who is very much aware of these tropes and tries his hardest to avoid some of the more unfortunate ones (to varying degrees of success).
The only criticism I have about this series is the amount of sexual assaults that occur (although I acknowledge that that's a reflection of hentai, which sadly uses sexual assault very liberally).
Aside from that issue, I'd recommend this series if you're a fan of protagonists that lean on the fourth wall, attractive anime ladies and tropes galore.
Decent beginning but... too much rape from everything doing everyone.
Let me explain my review for this story in as short as possible.
Its like seeing cosplayers doing a skit for a few minutes then said cosplayers started kissing each other and removing their clothes then started having sex, then they climaxed, stood up, faced the audience with a smile and bow then walk off the stage like nothing happened. And as you sat there trying to comprehend what the fck just happened, the next batch of cosplayers walks in and they are all in sailor moon uniforms. At this point, fck it im gonna stay and watch this unfold and enjoy it.
Full disclosure I’ve only read up to Episode 7 Part 5 so take my review with a grain of salt, you might love this story; it just wasnt my cup of tea.
The review: Its an interesting story. A unique enough premise with an understanding of what kind of story it is. However, things just seem to happen with no explaination. Character’s pop up out of nowhere and become intimately entangled with the MC almost instantly. Girls fall in love with him just as fast as well and the world around the MC (things such as abilities and the other ability users) isnt fleshed out very well, at the moment at least.
Just a rant but: Harumi just seems to suddenly pop up out of nowhere as the experienced ability user. After her being characterized as a sweet kind girl, suddenly she becomes this confident monster fighting healer/fighter (the abilities/classes people have arent explained very well). Also how Toru and Harumi suddenly just appear after the MC coincidently meets the magical girl is honestly pretty lazy. This novel is full of things suddenly happening. It has the feel of a slice of life story mixed with a poorly paced shounen story. Also despite how the world and its characters are described as anime tropes, the girls act nothing like anime characters with them all having this casual indifference to sex. One of the girls, Clare, even jokingly offering sex after literally meeting the MC for an hour at most. The characters themselves dont have much of anything in terms of personality outside of their tropes: ie the kind girl, the jealous girl, the sweet girl- wait theyre literally all like that. And Toru is just.. idk I feel like he had potential as a sarcastic but caring ally/rival but he just feels bland and a little beta tbh.
ALSO can we talk about how it seems that for some reason its up to some college kids to save the world by defeating the demon lord? And also about how they seem to almost casually think that its their eventual end mission? Are there no adults in this world, more veteran abilty users? There obviously seems to be a hidden society where people know about levels and stats but for some reason everyone that is “gifted” just seem to be kids.
Oh and the levels seem to be VERY arbitrary. We as readers dont really get a feel for the difference in powers between levels bc both the monsters and the MC’s allies arent really fleshed out at all. Like there’s literally a level 12 girl that has the abilty to mind control people 50 levels above her. And also, a soldier is level 60? Is he some sort of hidden expert? If so then why was he so easily controlled? If not is that just the level of all soldiers? But then how are monsters still a thing bc one of the mob bosses was only level 25. Even how the MC gains new abilities feels very wishy washy with abilities falling from the sky in the form if level rewards or magical skill books the MC finds randomly or just simply observing people train.
And finally, probably the most annoying part of the story would be how the MC seems to be dragged along by everyone. The MC constantly says that he’ll make his own fate and destroy the anime tropes, but he never actually forces his own fate or is smart enough to outwit the system. The author even mentions how the MC is at the mercy of the system (trope system) and its only a matter of if he’ll learn his lesson. He constantly makes small hollow decisions that seem to help him think he’s destroying the tropes like declining to go out to eat with someone but really the end result doesnt change and he just seems like a slightly more aware anime protagonist. Like Ryouta (finally remembered his name) mentions that he didnt want to become another Kirito and that he thought it was dumb to use a sword when he could use a gun but so far he’s turning out to be another Kirito.
Honestly, I’m being overly critical of this story (if you’ve read my rant). Its a good story in general with a plot thats unique enough and executed well enough to entertain you if you go into it with a light attitude to see past the various plot holes. Tbh my perspective of this novel is probably marred by the fact that I’ve read a much better execution of this kind of plot in The Novel’s Extra (a korean webnovel). But if you want rpg-style action in an anime world with a healthy dose of sex then I’d recommend this story.
If I ever come back to this story, I’ll update my review.
Also author please don’t feel discouraged by my review, you obviously have many readers who enjoy your story and your promise to never abondon this story is honestly admirable.
