I like it a bit. I however know that's not important to a review.
The tag it should have in addition to the others is slice of life. If you approach it like that going in you'll get much more joy out of it. I do admit that currently it seems rather convoluted and rushed, but give it time to see if its currently for you or not.
If you read this, you realise that the majority of isekai that involve Gods, literal forces of reckoning and rapture, somehow always get trumped by a mortal they summon? Not here.
Here you have a god that knows exactly what he summoned, and is an absolute God about it. Theres already a hundred chapters here, and never once have I doubted the godliness of these gods.
And the Transmigrator isn't some teen with a cheat that somehow beats a god. He's just a guy trying his best.
And the characters. By golly, does the author manage trope use wonderfully while somehow making them all seem so real and personable.
This book isn't a breath of fresh air for isekai but hurricane.
I found this story by accident one day. And I never put it down. Now that its potentially over, I believe any future readers (or fellow loopers) shall come and be awed by this beautiful tale of triumph and adversity. Watching them (the characters) grow is wonderful and I must now let them go for now.
Which saddens me. I had seen go from who they were to what they want to be. And I shall miss them
Has a hell of a start. Leaves enough to the imagination to keep you guessing, and shows enough to keep you looking. I'd recommend this to anyone that is tired of all the "everything is gonna be ok" stories. Will re review later around chapter 20 or so
My goodness, the story has a job at the post office because it delivers! And more importantly, it's all so human, with all that that means. It's beautiful, and terrifying, like an anology I'm nowhere near as good a writer to make!
Moved over to patreon due to piracy concerns, WHERE you can free read still, just not as early as the paying people.
This story was one I found back at volume one by sheer accident. And I loved it. Then it dissapeared again. Then poof, Volume 2 electric boogaloo happened. I had been following since. Sadly as mention in the spoiler, they no longer post here. But I feel the story is great enough to warrant the review to help the story succeed.
TL;DR: Hard story to find but great to read.
Because whoever on high does this author have a solid grasp on his. Nothing that any character does is out of character. And better yet, we aren't having our hands held and told that. We get shown! We properly experience the world through the eyes of our protagonist. If that somehow, in some way sounds like a terrible thing to you, this book/writings aren't for you. But for those who like that, you have found a wonderful hidey-hole!
An update to my old review! As of chapter 9 and 10, dialogue has been sanded down to a smoothness comparable to... something smooth? Bad metaphor I know. Anyway, it's a story deserving its four stars. Characters have gotten more developed and have motives and, more importantly, Emotional responses! They are people who do people things. Like us! Bad at comparisons I am.
Point is, author has shown a commitment to both the story, and their drive to improve.
Will re re review at a later time, most likely chapter 20ish
I like it. However, as book one is now only fully available on Amazon I could not read beyond book 1 chapter 20. Knowing that, I still like it. Its fresh, there's intrigue, there's a lot happening and it feels like its told as it happens rather than detached. If I get a bonus for Christmas, might pick this up.
Cryptic past, pointing towards an uncertain future, the story starts off similar to a trip for fire wood. You're walking along a familiar trail, until you realize you got about 30 minutes of sunlight left and have to run. And now you're back at camp at able to relax around a warming fire and enjoy the atmosphere.
All of that, that's this story. It's a wonderful story that has growth, politics, aristocracy that acts closer to that of feudal society, and an outside force that isn't all it seems.
This story, and as this review is occurring after having reading the sequel (also highly recommended) is an all star. For the simple fact that it adheres to believability at all times.
Character got the full 5 because I have never once doubted the actions of the character's, nor the rationale behind said actions. They stay true to themselves and their beliefs.
Story. Listen, we both clicked on the title. You had to have some idea of what was gonna happen. And here we are, following our hero, Hero Beaumont, and his "older" values and morality. You get exactly what you came for and then some.
Style is actually a 6 because
I had truly thought it was reality based lit rpg in the wild west what if, and what I got was miles better, with philosophical ideas on the self to boot!
Grammar is 5 because it is. Pretty self explanatory at this point. When people are talking, its organic, unforced, actual dialogue.
Seriously, the only downside is sporadic updates, but with all the really great stories on here, not a real problem.
