The Magic in this Other World is Too Far Behind!

Between unnecessary ecchi fanservice and ‘telling’ rather than ‘showing’ how things work- this manga is packed with speech bubbles crammed everywhere and full of too many words for a casual read.  If I wanted to read a ton, I’d be reading a book, not a manga.  The panty shots and focus zooms on breasts aren’t even tastefully done and I can only think the artist was trying to compensate the terrible writing.   

It took me a couple tries to get past the second chapter to give it a chance (came back on different days) because I couldn’t fairly give it a review from two chapters.  That said, it doesn’t really seem to get any better.   

I don’t mind the cliché isekai theme, that’s… why I was reading this.  I wasn’t even expecting originality (which was good because there was none) but there’s no plot worth following.  No real conflict or drama, nothing interesting imo.  The art is decent but a lot of the panels are crowded by speech bubbles and word vomit and missing any form of background.  Now, I have nothing against reading.  What I’m against is 5-6 bubbles in a small panel.  What I’m against is 20-something words of exposition shoved into speech bubbles like every character doesn’t know how to talk properly and they’re lecturing each other constantly.  What I’m against- is this manga’s writing.

shitty story, at first when i read the synopsis it had potential but it should have been dropped by the translator at chapter 4 like the mc is the most retarded person I've ever read

Mc became garbage as soon as the demon general got introduced did the authors neighbour murder him and took over because it sure seems like it
