Jimi na Kensei wa Sore Demo Saikyou Desu (Even if the Sword Saint is Boring He's Still the Strongest)



  • synopsis : Shirokuro Sansui, a Japanese student, was accidentally killed by God, then sent to another world in apology. There, he received training from a sage for 500 years in order to become “the strongest.” After training enough to be considered the strongest by the world’s current standards, he happened upon a baby near his training grounds, thus beginning his otherworld adventure. His training was normal, his moves are boring… even though he’s the strongest person in the world, everything else about him is just plain. The curtain opens on the sword saint who fights with just a normal wooden sword.

    Been following manga for a while now and what can I say, its dull.
    It lacks anything resembling a "hero's journey". The MC just goes from one place to another, winning fights with minimum effort. All of side characters are generic archetypes and contribute very little to the story aside from filling up background space on panels.

    So the title is truth in advertising? :)
