Isekai ni Otosareta… Jouka wa Kihon!

One day, a dull young man from Japan gets caught up in a heroic summoning and goes to another world. The next time he wakes up, he's not in a castle with a king, but in a deep forest since the summoning failed! You'd think he'd be at a loss, but he starts living a life of survival with a positive attitude that doesn't involve deep thought! Then, before he knows it, he saves the cursed forest and magical beasts one after another with his magical powers, and is befriended by wolves and dogs in a healing paradise! However, he doesn't realize that they are actually legendary demonic beasts and spirits at all. What's more, that they are adored!

[Reviewed at Chapter 20] This one's been a bit of a disappointment, considering all the high rated reviews here. My main issue is that whilst there is a major storyline in this manga, the problem is that for the most part it reads like a slice-of-life, when it isn't categorised as such anywhere. And it keeps switching between slice-of-life mode and serious-mode constantly, and it can be a bit jarring. Like, on one page they may show dozens of innocent lives being sacrificed by the evil king (and so you feel a bit of urgency and despair, hoping that MC takes care of this soon) but then the scene changes to MC getting all excited cooking up meat or some new ingredient - completely oblivious to the bad happening of course, but still.. the contrast is really jarring. MC is basically having the time of his life here, when innocent people are dying. So, as a reader, you feel like you couldn't care less about what new thing MC has come up with to make his forest life more comfortable. The other issue I have with this manga is that he's super super OP, basically god-level powers - he has nearly limitless magic power, and he can create any magic that he can think of on the fly (it's all up to his imagination) - plus, he can even create lifeforms (intelligent golems that somehow know what to do without MC instructing them) - when you can create lifeforms and create things and imagine up any sort of magic, you're basically god - and although I'm a big fan of OP MCs, taking it to this extreme is a bit too much, IMO. Finally, my biggest issue with this manga is how repetitive it is. I've read up till chapter 20, and the entirety of it has been a loop where:   - MC dispels the curse / purifies a part of the forest - People behind the curse get affected - MC rescues a new creature from the curse - MC finds new ingredients, sometimes with the help of said creatures - MC cooks said new ingredients - MC (or his golems) build some new feature of his cave adobe This keeps repeating constantly and honestly, it's not really interesting compared to other world building manga because MC literally has no limits and can magic up anything, and his creatures or luck conveniently ends up with him getting all his missing ingredients and materials. The whole story is basically MC cooking and eating and just magicking out everything, there's almost no challenge and little creativity involved with anything because MC's magic solves everything.
