When a goddess transports Hansoo Kang and his classmates to a magical fantasy world to become heroes, it’s like a dream come true. But when Hansoo declines to risk his life for a world that isn’t his own, the goddess leaves him for dead, alone in the forest. That’s when he realizes she’s not what she seems. With the help of a loner god, Hansoo faces the hostile new world and earns powerful blessings to help him survive. But his goal isn’t to save the world; it’s to return home… well, after he gets revenge on the goddess that is.
This is two seperate stories being told at the same time. One that follows the MC and is a pretty enjoyable ride(I'd give it an 8), and one that follows the other heroes and is a total waste of time(I'd give it a 2). The problem with this is that it leaves you not enjoying the majority of chapters, as they are regularly divided up to follow both of these seperate stories in each chapter. This can also make it feel as though next to nothing happens in many chapters. Partially because if the side heroes are in a battle it's usually quite slow and time consuming as they are weak, but also because they don't really feel like they grow as characters or become even remotely interesting even when outside combat despite all their screentime. This is also further felt by the fact that the MC and his outcast god get a lot of character development. In the end, if you heavily dislike one of these two stories being told together (like myself) you end up either glancing over that part or just out right skipping that section turning those many aforementioned chapters into half chapters in length. Which in turn leaves you feeling unsaitisfied as a reader. I combat this by straight up ignoring the side heroes stories after accepting it was garbage around chapter 20. However, that part must still be acknowledged in the review scoring as it is there every chapter whether I like it or not.
I read until chapter 30. While it has too many similarities to not being inspired by Tsuki Ga Michubu, it clearly goes on a totally different way. While Tsuki ga goes more for comedy, this one takes itself seriously. My main problem with this is that it takes too long for him to get a companion, something absolutely required since a character by himself can't entertain for too long, the main reason I dropped Kumo Ga, another thing is that his companion tries to be charismatic but fails, and I don't see any nice interaction between them, Makoto + Tomoe has much more entertaining interactions in Tsuki Ga and she comes way sooner. My second problem is how much of the story is focused on the other heroes, and to be sincere, I don't like that part at all. While they try to put some struggle, everything is handled to them quite easy to the point you ask if there is such a thing as a threat, or if the Gods even care anything about it or just want some entertainment, since they could just give someone from the humans all the blessings. And even when one of the heroes makes a grave mistake, he seems to not learn from it at all, a perfect chance for some character growth thrown in the trash. My third problem, until now, even on the side of the heroes is impossible to emphasize with the humans, it seems they literally don't care for anyone but the true hero, and anyone that has a low chance of it can be discarded. That makes it really hard to attach with anyone but the main character, something that's worsened by the fact that more than half of the heroes are mobs, that's why you don't make an entire class your main characters, even those who aren't mob, don't actually act much different from the mobs. I really thought this could be good, but it's mediocre at best, and after 30 chaps they didn't show me anything worth investing my time.
I agree with other reviews telling the "other heroes" story is completely useless, it's like half of the chapters (sometime entier chapters) are an other story, and a very bad one (well it's my opinion but some people might like it as it's similar to other mangas) The main story is pretty OK because he's powerful and not acting too stupid.
