To live from bottom-class to top-class farmer, our protagonist Aru Wayn levelled up his agricultural skills, and sometimes his other skills leveled up as well by helping out his friends. One day, when his last skill level hit MAX, his life changes."I want to live as a normal farmer!!"
I'm not sure if it quite reaches the point of misogyny or not--it probably does--but its portrayal of women is definitely intended to satisfy chauvinistic power fantasies of male readers. First of all, whenever Al is shown saving an individual character, it's almost always (if not always) a woman. In fact, each storyline includes at least one instance of fem saving some girl--fe saves Fal from the demon Romeo (ch. 1-2); fe saves Helen from the dragon Uroboros (ch. 3-6); fe saves Ruri from the demon Loki (ch. 7-9); fe saves Fal again, this time from an evil prince (ch. 10-13); fe saves Elvia in feir origin story (ch. 14-16); and it's looking like fe'll end up saving Linea from some currently unknown threat (ch. 17-present). On top of that, at least three of these girls then fall in love with fem, solely because fe saved them. And then there's feir attitude. As we see in chapter seven, fe feels the need to protect a strong warrior, saying "In the end, you're still a girl." And the girl in question likes being treated as lesser and in need of male protection; it makes feir feel like fe's seeing fem as a woman. Anyway, that's not actually my main complaint. My main complaint is that this character whose purported main goal in life is to be a farmer allows femself to get roped into way too many non-farming adventures. Fe does not have to do these things. Feir love for vegetables ends up becoming just a quirky character trait within a largely run-of-the-mill adventurer guild story consisting of a bunch of monster fights and quests. Even the idea that all of these demons and villains are operating under the direction of some mysterious behind-the-scenes final boss villain is like "Of course they are." But at the same time, it's decently entertaining, so I think a 5/10 is fair. [Reviewed at chapter 19]
