    The Basics:

    It's about mc being reincarnated into the world of sword & magic fantasy otome game! But this time mc is instead a guy reincarnated into the game as a mob character (he's not even the game's original capture target) also, it seems the game world setting is that women are treated as superior and men as plebs.

    Of course, There is always an exception to the rule and those are the group of handsome crown-prince Army leaders who are none other than the original captive target of the game, too bad those person are not our MC.

    And with such unreasonable circumstances, he has to find a way to survive such game world where his only advantage is his previous game knowledge from when his cheeky sister forced him to play the game sometimes ago(probably counting on him to do all the tedious hard work figuring out end game routes so she could come back and watch all unlocked scenes or something)

    Why Should JNC Pick This Up:

    HOLY SHIET IT'S AN OTOME GAME + MALE AS MC ! + MC IS STRAIGHT IN THE WORLD FULL OF HOT BABES (AND HUBBIES LOL)

    I've read plenty of female mc reincanated into otome game as villainess. But never as male mc reincarnated into otome game as a fodder guy and it peaks my interest.

    More importantly, author previously wrote LN "Sevens" and "Dragoon" which was pretty well received by western fan (based on novelupdates). So he has experiences with writing stuffs. I've also read both of his previous works and I can say I'm a big fan of Sevens (Dragoon was alright but not as good as Sevens to me, but let's set that aside for now) with how he handle the plots progress and romance aspect.

    Honestly, I haven't personally check out the content that far yet and I'm only counting on the fact that

    1. it's the genre i really like (transported/reincarnated into game world with romance as a nobody/villain with MC having game plot knowledge (i.e. knowing what would happen next)
    2. It's written by "Sevens" and "Dragoon" Author which I liked.
    3. As of this moment it's got 5/5 stars review in Amazon.co.jp with 7 reviews. That's not a lot of review but still pretty good since Amazon.co.jp LN doesn't really get a lot of review(To give comparison, Realist hero & Isekai mahou wa okureteru volume 1 both has ~17 reviews)

    I'm definitely going to check it out soon though. After I'm done reading raw for another LN Series with reincanating into the fantasy game world as a setting (This one> )https://www.novelupdates.com/series/shini-yasui-koshaku-reijo-to-nana-ri-no-kikoshi/

    Publisher?:

    Micro Magazine. I don't think JNC have any license with this publisher yet but Micro Magazine also have "That Time I Got Reincarnated as a Slime" and Yen Press managed to strike a license deal with them so I don't think it's impossible to work out the license deal.

    How Many Volumes?

    Volume 1 Just came out June 2018 . But the WN should already have enough material to adapt 3 volume and he's working on WN 4th arc which should be for the 4th volume (550k character counts so far). More importantly, Author followed through with finishing both of his previous works "Sevens" and "Dragoon" so I have I high hope that author would also properly finishes up this story.

    Edit1: Got manga adaptation now! see https://twitter.com/shiosatojyun11/status/1046036909661843456

  • sounds interesting, from the cover I guess the MC is going to try and destroy the capture targets reputations to win the girl?? LOL


  • Premium Member

    Huh. I kind of like the idea of an underdog protagonist smashing flags, and it could be good. Sevens was good for a while, though it went on too long, or at least the WN did.

    My guess was that the capture targets weren't so 'clean' personality wise to begin and perhaps MC is utilizing that to his advantage. I just bought the book so I'll check it out.

    Although if you wanted to check some illustrations legally then there's a free sample reading link from ebook store here.

    Luckily it includes the first few pages with illustrations so there you have it

    I can see where you're coming from with Sevens. Although I was alright with it because I started binging the series in one go after it was completely translated so the more chapters the better. Dragoon on the other hand I read when it was barely 50 chapters and while I liked it I feel the pacing at the end could have been handled better. Although author wrote Dragoon before Sevens so It's understandable.



  • i've read the WN of this from syosetu.
    it was quite interesting. i find mc the least bland out of author's previous work with is a big plus.


  • Premium Member

    Might be interesting so why not. Bring it!


  • Translators

    Holy crap, this sounds AMAZING. +1.



  • 'the game world setting is that women are treated as superior and men as plebs.' - I want it. I love this type of story. Will buy it if it become licensed.

    What its by the author of seven. I want to read it ASAP


  • Premium Member

    Every time I see that title I think MC is some background character.

  • Translators

    Okay, now I REALLY want this.

    EDIT: I went and read the free sample of volume 1 on Amazon and wrote a Twitter thread of my thoughts here, if anyone's interested: https://twitter.com/verdelishJP/status/1047273750675091457



  • @verdelishjp Glad it peaks your interest! Didn't know the second volume's coming at the end of this month. Was tempted to read beyond volume1 on syosetu but held out on that because reading with nothing beats reading an edited work with illustrations :P

    On a side note, I browsed your twitter and realized you're the translator of "Fashioning Little Miss Lonesome"! I love that game. As a straight man it's the only otome game (VN) I ever played because my steam friend insisted the games hilarious and they were right


  • Translators

    @santi-brathana Thank you so much! <33

    FLML definitely has a somewhat broader appeal than most other otome games. Likewise, I think this LN could sell to a similarly broad demographic. Granted, I haven't read very far yet, but I think it could be popular both with guys who aren't familiar with otome games beyond "games for girls," as well as with otome fans who are curious to read about the average guy's reaction to their favorite genre (e.g. me, lol).

    The manga started scanlation recently and it's pretty interesting so far so I created an LNDB page for the LN. This has gotten my vote.


  • Member

    i'm reading the fan-translation now and it seems really good, i hope to read it once again just in J-Novel Club quality ;)
