Fresh and realistic take on being summoned "heroes"

Reviewed at: 31 - Coward

Enjoyed it a lot so far. An fresh take on the isekai genre, and probably a far more realistic take. If heroes can be summoned, you can bet that someone is going to want to exploit that.

 

Keep up the good work!

You should read it.  A rather unfortunate MC has been transported to another world.  Normally even unlucky protagonists feel somewhat enviable.  Werc does a good job of making you feel the unfairness of the MC's life.  He's powerless, screwed over and despised.  I recommend it.

I really can't think of any words to do justice to this story, in any way more than the description already lays it out. Just go read the first couple chapters and if you're not hooked by then, nothing I can say would do the trick either.

Fresh, Real, and well written!

Reviewed at: 34 - Stay

Real.

Non-one-dimensional characters.

Shows, doesn't tell.

Gripping. I read everything available at the time in 1 sitting.

Excellent grammer.

MC is relatable and not an idiot.

I can't wait for more.

This story is great. I really like the deviation from the usual isekai.

The story is incredibly well written, and is easy to follow. Not everything is what it seems in this tale of being a summoned hero. This tale is a bit gritty.

This is a tale about how those summoned from another realm are taken advantage, and one "hero" who slipped through the cracks.

Pretty good and def worth the read if the author can keep this quality I could see it becoming one of the tops stories

As of chapter 38, I have found this serial to be everything I want. While the mc has a special advantage, he often earns his progress through pain. The author raises questions that you want answers to, and when answered lead to more interesting questions as well as tantalizing glimpses into the story's mythos. The characters around him are compelling and very human, each dealing with the difficulties of life in their own way. There's more, but I think this is enough to get you started. Enjoy!

This is an awesome story story with an interesting MC the pacing seems slow though. But it is very good read.
