    Personal Thoughts : I have been reading this web novel for quite a while now and I would say it is right up there among the very best for me along with overlord and how to pick up girls in a dungeon. The MC, even though is OP, isn’t bland like others I have read. This mc is a breadth of fresh air with how proactive he is. The novel takes misunderstandings to a new level and it’s damn funny, action is top notch. To my knowledge only 2 LNs have been released so far so its relatively new. It would be great if this sees the light and we see the light novel version getting officially translated.
