Based on the first chapter, this story is going places. While it uses the near standard "MC hit by a bus" concept you see in a huge chunk of isekai fiction, the writing is distinctive, already showing a strong sense of personality in character and author both. I'm really looking forward to seeing where this goes.

The story's great so far, your style is engaging and unique. I'm looking forward to the protagonist eventually working his way back up to his true calling, middle management.

Review as at chapter 6: Efficient Task Delegation

 

Its still early in the story for me to do a full review, but what I've seen so far is quite promising. The author delivers a great first chapter that draws you into the character and the world rapidly and leaves you wanting more.

 

The side characters are well done as well, figured I would mention.

 

If it continues at this level of quality it will no doubt be a 5 star classic.

A promising new take on the classic Isekai story

It might be a little early to write much of a review, but as of 8 chapters in, I think it's worth taking the time to provide an early signpost. Things start off quickly, with the truck being introduced chapter one, but the tone and the main character distinguish the story almost immediately. Jeremy works in HR, has a bad leg, and a depressingly firm grasp on counterproductive employee management practices. With a pair of unusual companions and a pair of magic glasses stuck to his face, he's now stuck in a new world doing intro to adventuring tasks with them to try and get by.

 

This early on, it's hard to tell exactly where a story will go, but the idea of an MC that's primary ability is better workplace practices sets the stage for an entertaining tale. Power fantasies are all good and fun, but who doesn't love a manager that actually wants the little people to do well? That's proper fantasy writing. Anyway, I'll be keeping this on my watch list to see where things go.
