Reborn on a Systemless Earth... With a System
You know the setup: A young man on Earth hit by a speeding truck who ends up in a generic fantasy world.
But what about this: A young man in a generic LitRPG fantasy world hit by a carriage who ends up in modern-day San Francisco, and yet still wants to be a hero anyway? That's how Systemless starts, and boy does it never let up.
Join Eryk Solbourne and his two Earthen friends Francis and Delta as they adventure across the United States and try to achieve the impossible: becoming the ultimate hero in a world where levels don't even exist.

I stopped at chapter 30. I tried to keep reading but it was not my cup of tea.
It's well written and has some funny parts, but over all it's kind of boring in my opinion.
There's just no driving story to it I guess. Its slice of weird life. Still worthy of 4 stars because of how well it's written but doesnt have anything to capture my attention.
Not entirely sure how to rate this story; it's funny, it does what it sets out to do, but I also got pretty annoyed while reading it. I think that stem largely from the main source of humour being misunderstandings and those misunderstandings at least seeming easily avoidable. I'm waiting for the characters to stop for a moment and properly sort out the situation except I have no hope of that happening. I would say that kind of humour gets old except I still kept reading and laughing each chapter.
What this means for me is that unless the story changes in some way, I can't really se a future for the story as something I would keep reading. That doesn't mean this story is straight up someone elses ally and it's probably read better spaced out over several days rather than read all at once the way I did.
Besides that it's well written with a constant style and a lack of any typos that I could see
Takes a few chapters to find it’s rhythm, but once the tone and main characters get set in stone it really hits its stride. Don’t expect anything serious or heart pounding, as this story largely focuses on slice of life comedy, like one the good Adam Sandler movies.
For me, the characters are what keep me coming back. They seem as though they should be annoying on the surface, but they have a unique charm and character that really endears them to you.
In summary, this story is wacky, light hearted and really doesn’t take itself seriously, but which makes it a delightful read.
This is a slice of life story, and as such, not exactly my cup of tea. But it's well-written, both from a technical and craft standpoint. It does what it is trying to do and it does it well. The humor is misunderstand-humor in most situations, which makes some people uncofomfortble and others love it. I straddle that line.
It does turn the Isekai tropes on their head, and I greatly appreciate that. The idea of the system carrying over is pretty great. I like the MC, and I appreciate anyone who can produce compelling personal problems like this.
All told, if you like slice of life, give this one a go, you won't be disappointed.
Systemless is a silly and amusing yarn that solidly flips the usual isekai story on its head, bringing a fantasy LitRPG hero to mundane Earth, while retaining his ability to use his video game like powers. While perhaps not the most original twist on the idea, TheDude3445 manages to do it right.
While there is plenty of situational humor just from the expected clash of cultures you'd normally see in a "fantasy warrior shows up on modern Earth" premise, the fact that his RPG power system carries over, and it's very nature incentivises him to keep trying to be an adventurer in a world that doesn't particularly want or need one, forces Eryk to adapt to Earth while still being forced to work with his game system. It makes for an interesting dynamic that I haven't seen done in stories like these; usually the "fantasy warrior on Earth" gimmick has the heroes also battling enemies from their world that likewise made the trip over, giving them an external threat to face. Systemless presents the hero with an internal challenge he can't just stab away.
This review is being written as of Chapter 20, and the chapters are nice and short for quick catching up. So far, the characters are solid, but we're still in the earlier stages of getting to know them. Overall, though, it's a fun, quick read, and I recommend it for fans of the lighter side of the isekai genre.
I really enjoyed reading the first several chapters of this story. It starts off with a bang and everything is fast moving. It doesn't stop to hold your hand at all and tell you what's going on, allowing you to learn along the way which is something that some people may be turned off by but i enjoyed it and prefer it that way.
It's one I will definitely keep reading as it pulls you into this crazy world right at the jump, giving you no time to breathe.
I did feel like I was reading a video game which is a good thing imo. The dialogue is short, crisp and too the point. There isn't any flowery words or fluff, everything is just what it needs to be. There's action from the get go and no lulls keeping you down. Overall if that's your cup of tea, then you will definitely enjoy it! It's definitely got plenty of video game and RPG elements. Not sure what it is but I kept getting Disgaea vibes. I may be off my rocker, but that's the atmosphere i got from it, even if the gameplay systems weren't the same. Maybe its the very vibrant cover art and characters.
Overall great writing and look forward to seeing where the story goes.
Thanks for the writing!
I didn't know what to expect when I started reading this story.
I'll be honest, a part of me had second thoughts from the get-go. First, the system got me intrigued, then the character grabbed my attention. When the protagonist tried to wage war against the horrid monsters known as cosplayers, I knew we were onto a winner.
The best part of the story has to be the character. He starts off naive and clueless enough to grip the reader's attention. As a result, the story gets full marks in that department.
As for style and story, personally, it starts a bit slow. However, that's not always a bad thing. It took me a few chapters to get into it, but I think that can be fixed with a strong hook.
It's my first review here on rr, and english isn't my native language, but for the chance of creating a card in the story here i am.
Most of the chapters are short but the story dont feel rushed, it keeps a good balance of narrative development, the isekai aspect is explored in his own way, while the characters also progress in a unique way, Eryk keeps the protagonist status because the system but he still feel so much human, his interactions with the others characters and Earth is a good way to enjoy the story, to laugh and think about the world we live while still enjoying a good story.
So, characters are great, although the possible romance isn't my cup of tea it's still great enough to ignore it. Little to no grammatical or spelling errors. Definitely a potential top 5 trending story!
Summary: Systemless is a great fish out of water comedy with LitRPG elements. I.e. it feels more slice of life than action/adventure. There isn't really a lot of combat, instead more of a focus on exploration and learning (think Pillars of Eternity) and it works very well. That said, if you are coming here to read about a powerful combat oriented protagonist this probably isn't the story you should want.
The story is fast paced with short paragrahs. That makes it a simple/easy read but from time to time it can be a bit too quick and distracting.
What mistakes there were seem to have been fixed before I finished my read through. Nothing to complain about.
It's more slice of life, so the plot isn't the focus but the worldbuilding is top notch. The story has done a good job so far of exploring the characters and how they interact with each other. The system serves as both an interesting plot element as well as a ticking time bomb that drives the plot forward, keeping things from becoming too stagnant in the Slice of Life Elements.
All of the characters feel fleshed out and real. The MC's fish out of water act is starting to wear a little thin, but at the same time he's learning. I'm most interested right now in how some of the secondary characters develop.
