Who Cares about an Isekai? Surely not me!

All that Ran wanted was a nap, just a tiny nap. How comes when she wakes up, she has to become a hero in an Isekai adventure to defeat the Demon Race?
Cheats and power? Everyone agrees her powers seem useless and stupid.
Be a hero? No way! She looks so awkward, without any personality nor presence.

“You are a chosen one, a mighty hero. This world needs you!” said the goddess avatar.
“No one asked for my opinion. Who cares about this world? Surely, not me!” replied Ran.

DNF - story doesn't make sense for far too long

Soooooo ...  a bunch of people are summoned to save the land from the demons. Everybody is an arrogant prick, sneering at everyone else. The powerful of the world decide to trick the summoned heroes. The heroes' servants spy on them. Our MC decides to hide her abilities and knows from the start that everything is a trick and she should be on guard.
Why? Who knows. What abilities? Who knows. What's going on? Who knows. The story reads like the second book of a series that relies heavily on the first one. If that's indeed the case, please point me to said first book, coz I'm completely lost.
After about a dozen chapters it becomes clear - or at least guessable - that



The story may be wonderful afterwards, the side characters may develop an actual personality instead of being sneering caricatures, but I stopped reading after chp 13 so, unfortunately, I don't know. If you want to find out, more power to you. You'll find a technical well-written story with few-to-none typos or grammatical errors, which is always a big plus on RRL. If you do read on, please write a review and explain why you like the tale, so I can perhaps figure out what's going on second hand.

Story: I'm hooked! Give me more!!

Character: I want more of Ran!!

A Deconstruction with Some Substance...Maybe

I'm writing this review after bingeing through ch 34. However, only 150 pages in total. Chapters are on the short side. I will update this review as the story progresses.

A good character-driven story on this site is like discovering a legendary artifact. If anyone has found one, PM me!

As for this story, I really like the relationship you built with Ran and Rikki. Good stuff and good writing! We are introduced to other characters but these two are the main focus. I really hope the other characters will get developed further.

As for the story, it has its ups and downs. Firstly, the first few chapters are atrocious. Secondly, too little explanation. This is a fantasy setting so explanations are a must even if a bit repetitive because we're in another world and the readers might not know of the mechanics of how things work.

This is why I said this book is a deconstruction because the author already assumes a whole lot of information. This was what another reviewer here was complaining about.

There are too little descriptions!

One other criticism is that the story is painfully slow and yet fast. Let me explain. Too little descriptions and downtime means that there are non-stop barrages of things happening without a single break. However, the slow-moving plot means that not much is happening too.

There are many reasons why this fiction is currently rated below a 'four.' However, the story is solid, for now, and I recommend following it despite its short-comings.
