    Volumes: 2 LN Volumes (Ongoing)

    Description: Oda Akira, a high school student who excels in erasing his presence, was summoned along with his classmates to another world.

    In this world of sword and magic, Akira and his classmates were asked to become heroes and bring down the demon king.

    Having a bad feeling about the king and the princess who asked them, Akira uses his special skills to sneak into the king’s library, in hopes of discovering the truth.

    Whether to help or abandon his classmates who knew nothing, it all depended on Akira.

    My thoughts: Sadly there isn't much of an translation just yet.
    But the premise is good and the little we can get from the few Chapters and Manga chapters are pretty good.
    Akira suspects that the whole situation is not as it seems in the beginning. The king and his men are really suspicious! And I like that he is not the hero (even if he is more overpowered as the Hero)
    Also it SEEMs that there is only one Love interest and no Harem. I like Harem if the Charactere are fleshed out but I enjoy it more if it is like this.

    I like this, the most interesting Isekai are always the ones that find some to way to subvert the standard of "I'm an overpowered hero summoned to save this world" having the main character as an assassin would be a nice change of pace.



  • I was thinking of suggesting this as well today, after reading the 2nd manga chapter.

    I like the setup a lot. It doesn't do anything groundbreaking, but I think it has the right idea on how to take the "isekai class" concept and make it interesting via the plot rather than via anime tropes and rote conventions. Obviously, with only 2 chapters out, it certainly still has many chances to devolve down to the levels of its other ilk, but I think starting off on the right foot counts for something.

    I'm reading the manga and enjoying it so far, with the proviso that there is barely anything out yet so we're still just getting started with the introduction. The whole "all his stats are higher than the actual hero but he's gonna hide that" aspect rings somewhat familiar to Isekai Mahou, though obviously both the cause and effect are very different.



  • Got my upvote.

    Hmm, manga seems interesting so far and art style is pretty good. In addition novelupdates lists this as R-15, which is a bonus.



  • Well, color me interested.

    I'm a sucker for series in which multiple people get transported to another world like a full class. Here's my vote.

    Like the outfit designs so +1 here.

    I definitely wouldn't trust someone that summoned me to another world without warning. I mean, just look at novels like a certain one about a hero with a sword of revenge.

    Or another one with the protagonist as basically a crafter.

    Definitely can't trust human summoners. Well, maybe if the summon was accidental.

    I had give it my vote goes the blurb seem interesting with the whole assassin solving the mystery and conpiracy behind the summon but after trying it the only thing i can say it that it's cliché, boring and at time annoying. It doesn’t even make a good use of it's assassin twist and the MC is stupid as hell but the book try to make it seem like he is that cool clever guy.

    TL;DR it's desapointing and overdone.

    Even if you like that kind of LN with a stupidly op MC being an edge lord, something like Arifureta is way better.
