Dim-witted donkan MC who's a top-notch softie-pushover on top of that. He's one of those who just asks to be taken advantage of. Overly nice to the point of bickering with the adventurers guild recepient about how his reward is too much .. So stupid and annoying! Aimless and unambitious... I think, I haven't seen a more useless MC since Re:Zero. The only good thing is that he doesn't constantly mimimi, but that's because he is too fckn stupid to realize what situations he is in.

For that MC alone I reduce my rating by 5 points. Can't stand those retarded MCs anymore ...
I mean, really "Ehhh?! People are fighting each other?!" in chapter 16 .. Just what kind of dim-witted idiot is he?

Your average cliche plots like adventurer guilds are omnipresent ofcourse. That alone wouldn't be a problem for me if at least the characters arent your average cliches as well. Sadly, they are your average walking cliches.

On top of it, well. It's a shounen, so I expected the characters to be somewhat childish and -surprise! surprise!- ofcourse they are.#

Really, I suggest the "comedy" tag, because this whole work is a parody in- and of itself.

Not an original concept, no unique mc, no interesting relationships.

However I read it. The chapters are short, they're interesting enough to get you into the next one and the art is pleasant.

The story is just your usual isekai, except this time there is nothing unique about it. It was clearly made for money. The mc treats everything like a joke, and it just makes it so I can't take it seriously, and it's just boring. If your looking for a basic isekai that has nothing unique about it then read it.

This is a literal pile of garbage full of endless cliche's and tropes other than the art being good. Short chapters, painfully stupid MC, useless female companion that is endlessly attached at the MC's hip for no reason other than being the opposite gender and a good crutch that he has to regularly save and be told how amazing he is, MC making a move on "smart" enemy without proof but by the power of plot armor, god's magic inside him, helps him out of the problem scot free, no character growth from anyone in 37 chapters, basically nonexistent story, no real goals for MC to get stronger or want to do anything, little to no screen time for side characters other than best girl guild receptionist, useless female companion who everyone hypes up likes she's a rising star that always needs rescuing. Everyone in this whole story feels like a mob NPC from a rpg in the 90s that only has one line of dialogue.
