42 year old "shachiku" (company slave) Matsuda Takeshi gets worked to death, as is customary in Japan. His one dying wish is to work for a decent enterprise, not the black company he had been working for. His wish is heard by a god who, for his own amusement, has him reincarnate as a young elf male in another world, with increased affinity for earth magic and ability to command golems. The new golem master sets out on a quest to acquire the Seven Treasures left behind by a legendary mage from 1000 years ago.
The story started off a bit slow and it took me about two or three chapters to get into it. However, after that it became quite enjoyable. The story is rather simplistic but still ok to read. The MC’s personality is a bit uncommon as far as I’ve seen. It is a bit difficult to explain without spoiling a bit of the story but basically, he’s quite forgiving and willing to help people, but has no problem to turn his back on a damsel in destress if they cause him trouble. This was done pretty well in my opinion and I actually kind of liked it. Around chapter 17 however the story took a bit of a nosedive. Where the MC earlier on was what I would consider to be fairly mature, he suddenly turned into a bit of an immature child and the story turned into somewhat nonsensical rubbish simply because… plot or something. However, I do think this is just a temporary passage in the story that will become better again later on. Overall, this is a mildly entertaining manga that I would only recommend to hardcore isekai fans with nothing else to read. There are much better ones out there. - This was written at chapter 21
