Blade Skill Online

Blade Skill Online

The weakest piece of shit is the final boss!? Overwhelmingly unlucky high school student Yuri. What he obtained was the VRMMO 『Blade Skill Online』, which could be used to change the luck value. "Summoner", which is considered to be the strongest occupation on the capture site, and "Bow", the strongest weapon. Furthermore, play the game world with extreme "luck value"! ――It should have been, but I was forced to grab false information! The summoner is a garbage job, the bow is the weakest weapon, and the luck value is a status!? Moreover, as a result of random character creation, the avatar is a beautiful girl!? Before I knew it, I was treated as the last boss for some reason— !?

Kyuukyoku Shinkashita Full Dive RPG ga Genjitsu Yori mo Kusoge dattara (Light Novel)

Kyuukyoku Shinkashita Full Dive RPG ga Genjitsu Yori mo Kusoge dattara (Light Novel)

Follows a dull high school student named Hiro Yuuki when he is tricked into joining a full-dive VR role-playing game. The game, Kiwame Quest, is promoted as "more real than reality" with mind-blowing graphics, impressive NPC behavior, and even the scent of foliage and the sensation of wind blowing against your skin. Unfortunately, the game is already a virtual ghost town, after being flooded with player complaints that the game is little too realistic for its own good. Its quests are nearly impossible to clear, since players have to be as physically fit to complete them as they would in real life. Players feel actual pain when they get hit, and puncture wounds takes days to heal. The only reward is the mere sense of accomplishment. It is the complete opposite of a casual pick-up-and-play game, but Hiro vows to beat this most realistic (and most stressful) game ever.
