Synopsis:

If our MC hadn't been so sleep deprived from playing League of Warriors all through last night, he may have been able to avoid his mysterious and highly unfourtunate transportation to another world. Or would it be highly fortunate? For you see, this new world is not an ordinary one, but a world of magic and legend. *gasp* It is a world where a gamer would be right at home. Our MC must improvise, adapt, and overcome if he wishes to become the hero his twelve-year-old self always wanted to be. Perhaps, in so doing, he may uncover the mysteries of his transportation, or... perhaps, he may discover the truth of the legend of the infinity blades.


Notes:

This story is meant as a comedy and practice so take things with a grain of salt. My editing is rather light. Still, I hope I can still get something interesting and fun out of this nonetheless.

Chapters are typically around 5k words long. Probably a mistake in hindsight, but I like to be consistent.

I drew the cover art myself in MS paint. If you insult my art skills you will be sumarily blocked.

I prefer stories with strong leads, MCs that are in control of the situation. This one left with mixed feelings. This MC is about as far from in control as possible, but I'm gonna echo the other review and point out how fun this guy is. He never does what you expect, and there's A LOT of room for character growth. I would say defo give this one a read.

Good story, it's really good so far. Hope you keep on writing the way that you do.  The character is the best I've seen in a short story.  The plot is very interesting in a sort of funny way.  Anyway I hope you keep up with the good work.

I don't feel it is fair to judge a writer on his first chapter hopefully my comments help.

A great character in an uninteresting story. Most isekai stories strive for a normal everyday guy living out a power fantasy and getting all the girls. This doesn't fall into this trap, it subverts it.

The author's character is a breath of fresh air in a stale genre. He's not likable but he is painfully relatable. You know why he does what he does and what he might do next. He kept me reading.

Unfortunately, the story feels like it doesn't have a purpose. No drive. There are great moments (mostly when the MC doesn't get what he wants) but it falls into the 'and then' trap. Example: A hero goes to the market and then he goes home and then jumps over a wall. There are moments of conflict and tension but most of the story is aimless.

My suggestion: please read and enjoy the story for what it is, a great character study. 

To the author: I hope to see more chapters so I can change my review.
