    Description

    The Jester ―― More commonly known as the ‘Playboy’ Dylan, was fired from the party of the Heroes. The self-centred Heroes didn’t understand Dylan’s importance to the group.

    They were just a group of one-man teams. Not interested in cooperation at all. Any failures are blamed on the jester. Dylan, who was disgusted with such companions and was sick of playing as their comedic foil, happily accepted being kicked out.

    The Heroes didn’t know. After saving them many times over with his magic tricks, the level 99 jester can change his job title to that of a ‘Great Sage’.

    “Life, how about a rewrite?”

    He’s done being the clown. From here on out, he’s going to take the leading role.

    So I want to suggest this title for licensing. Seven seas has another title by the same author called Division maneuvers, this author also has a couple of other works that havn't been published in english yet and this novel in particular also has a manga adaptation. I want to see this title in english cause it would be a nice fantasy based story to mix it up with all the isekai thats being published. Its apparantly got quite a few dragon quest referances with the main characters class being one of the jobs from that game series. And the artwork and girls are super cute and nice to look at in my opinion. I hope this will bring some attention to this authors works and hopefully more of them will come out in english in the future.

    Reading that plot synopsis I can't help but think of Dragon Quest 3.

    Have you seeing their boobs?
    But..
    Have you seen their boobs?

    On one side, the novel seem to tick all the right boxes for me, on the other side... The boob tonnage is too damn high.
    Despite the bombastic proportions of certain female body parts, the story has this warm and fuzzy feeling to it. It isn't something I can read without smiling to myself.
    But have you seen their boobs!



  • @zing Thats also a good reason why I wanted to bring this to peoples attention. I know not everyone enjoys the breast sizes, but It looks like a fun series with feel good moments between the hero and his girls.

    yea, I've seen, are they drawn that way for comic effect? (or is it a plot point?) not that I really care one way or the other...



  • I think its just a preferance thing of the artist and writer. His other works feature quite a few busty ladies as well if you look at Division Maneuvers for instance. I really want to see how an english publisher would handle the translation, since apparantly there are a lot of referances to how big they are, and the author mentions a lot of breast bouncing and swaying for instance.

    There should be something for everyone, don't you think?

    You see, there is a big problem with this story, a very big problem, a fucking huge problem.
    ...
    ..
    .
    There is not enough translated material.

    The main character reminds me of Michael Jackson fused with The Mask, without the green face. Especially when he starts a dance off in the middle a monster house... The trio has great synergy and their interactions are always fun to read. The girls (aka shortstacks, yes its an actual word, look it up) has enough energy to rival an overcharged duracell bunny.

    The story itself is quite lighthearted and fun to read, but can sometimes get pretty dark. I blazed through 31 chapters in a few days and it left me hungry for more.

    The translation of the web novel is very good, the jokes come across well and its easy to read. If j-novel can get this license, they might as well hire the guy who translated web novel to translate the light novel.

    I like it and can't recommend it enough.

    @jon-mitchell I dunno why they are made like this, but for the warrior lady, Tina, it creates a certain problem. Tina has a tank specialisation, but she cant afford to buy full set of heavy armor. Due to her bust size, she needs it custom made and that is expensive.
    The standard approach for warriors is to duke it out with the enemy head on, covering up for the more squishy party members such as mages and priests. But because of Tina's lack of equipment, she is forced into agility tanking, always moving around while dodging enemy attacks. That in turns create openings unless the party adjusts to her way of doing things. Basically it makes her an unwanted party member of sorts.
