Thor Regus, a boy who lived in the empire, was banished to the territory of the Demon Lord by the hands of his father, the Duke. The reason was that he could only use alchemy and didn’t have any combat skills. The empire was a military country, and those without combat skills were discriminated against. That is why the empire decided to make him a hostage and sacrifice to the Demon Territory. This is a story about an exiled boy who transcends Empires and Heroes and transforms the Demon Territory into a civilized power.
So the main character has no fighting capability so he is deemed worthless. So the father of this guy just kinda banishes him to the demon domain to die but the demons, wanting to learn human medieval technology, treat this guy much better. The humans didn't let this guy do anything so while it was useless to them, the demons give this guy the stuff he needs to actually use his skill. He uses the skill to benefit the demons and we sometimes cut to the humans to see them slowly realize that maybe sending MC into the demons who generously accepted him was a bad idea. Oh also, there is this past world-building where modern people who were summoned as hereos are now thought to be transcendental beings that the main character is in awe to, as he creates things that are significantly better than what we have, thinking he is creating what we have.
QRD:It's another copy of "I Kicked the Main Character Out of my Party/Family/</insert organization here> Because blah blah blah", the arts nice though. Read it if you want, but don't hold your breath. The fantasy and isekai genre are filled with these, but it's cool to pass the time.
I will say that I think this story suffers a bit from plot contrivance. Like with how Thor levels up from literally just walking through a forest or how products which seem relevant to whatever problem is going on are found within the product catalog. That said, though, this aspect is largely okay because it contributes to the humor of the series. The humor basically comes from overestimations based on misunderstandings, and the irony that coincides with that. Thor overestimates the technological capabilities of the items from our real world (which are seen within the catalog the summoned hero from 200 years ago had left behind) and assumes that fe's making inferior versions of those items while actually making items that are far more impressive. Kelv and other people within the demon king's territory overestimate the number of alchemists which the empire must have, considering that they didn't feel the need to hold onto Thor. There's also at least one instance where Kelv overestimates how much Thor is planning ahead and assumes plans within plans (when Thor is actually kinda basic in feir thoughts). Besides the humor, there's also a little appeal from a harem point of view. There have been several girls in Thor's proximity who are in various stages of haremification. Also, there's a bit of satisfaction from seeing the asshole Duke and others who had cruelly abandoned Thor getting their comeuppance, getting screwed over because they hadn't realized how vital Thor's alchemical skills were to the smooth operation of certain aspects of the empire. Overall, this is an alright read, but not anything amazing. The storylines and character arcs are kinda shallow and basic. The fan service and harem aspects feel forced. The artwork feels pretty stiff and unimpressive. The humor is probably the biggest saving grace, but it's not as though it's laugh-out-loud funny. [Reviewed at chapter 10]
