[Reviewed at chapter 32] Okay, so this isn't as bad as "Hidden Dungeon Only I Could Enter", but it isn't that much better either. The story isn't anything special but it is reasonably engaging, and the artwork is pretty decent too. Unfortunately though, the MC is annoying - he's likeable at the beginning and he has his moments, but his growing stupidity eventually starts to get to you. The MC is OP and continously gains cheat skills out of the blue, yet he finds himself in precarious situations thanks to his stupidity, lack of self awareness and slow personal growth. Take archery for example, it's something one can improve upon by simply training normally, yet he doesn't seem to be able improve it at all without relying on his skills, which as we see becomes an issue when he's unable to access those skills. On several occasions he comes across as the most OP, yet useless MC ever. On the bright side, he has a cheery and positive disposition and doesn't have that "loser" look that a lot of similar manga have. As for the supporting characters, there's not much to write about. 32 chapters in and we still don't know much of their backstory or circumstances, nor is there much emphasis on character detail, so they feel more like background characters rather than regular supporting characters. Overall, I like that the manga doesn't take itself too seriously, I like that it's not depressing or stress-inducing, yet at the same time it's not too slow-paced either, and is even somewhat enjoyable on the odd occasion. Will I recommend this manga to others? Probably not - maybe only if you've run out of other manga to read. Will I finish reading this manga? Certainly. I begrudgingly look forward to the next chapter and see how the story unfolds.
The best way I can think of to describe the blandness of this manga is that it felt like the introductory tutorial or training sequence of a video game, not like a story. The dialogue feels stilted and the relationships between the characters feel disingenuous. The large amount of text on the inspection screens clutter the panels and provide very little to no useful information. The entire premise of the story--of an Inspector being the strongest class--is immediately undercut by the fact that Hibiki gains skills which clearly have nothing to do with inspecting and its those skills which are actually helpful. Fe has the ability to create contracts and cast spells as well as being able to use archery. And to top it all off, the Great God of the world will give fem new skills as the situation asks for it.
