During this review I will refer to this novel as 'Parasite.'
Story - 7/10.
The Main Character, Eiji, gets brought before the Goddess, Rux (lately the translation has differed to calling her Ruu, I will call her Rux for the purpose of this review).
After being told it is impossible for him to go back to his world he is given the opportunity to get a "Class" from the possibilities inside him. Unfortunately, as a NEET he only has the "Parasite" class, reluctantly he chooses it and is on his way.
As is normal, after being transferred and given some items by Rux he makes his way
to the nearest town in the hopes of testing his power.
By using his power he can make himself stronger without the need for actual combat.
Now onto the actual criticisms. Because he can become stronger this way he has no reason to leave the Inn. It is 9 chapters before he even takes a request and in the same chapter he gets his first kill. He spends his days watching his level ups (you can see status in this alternate world) and just lazing about.
Further, its also around 53 chapters before you get even the slightest hint of what I believe to be the main overarching plot. Secret Organisation? Sounds like the final boss to me.
In short, the story is told at a snails pace. Most of the time he lazes the day away if you can tolerate a slow story then keep reading, if not. Well, dunno what to tell ya.
Character. 6/10. There is only development with Eiji, slowly you see Eiji grow out of NEET mode at times, currently he has grown respected enough to be offered nobility by another noble but he is the only one so far to have any semblance of development.
Other characters include Rux, Ally and Veil. Ally pops around quite a lot but only some small info is known about her, although I get the feeling the story is going into her character arc at the moment. And for Veil. Pretty much just air. Nothing is known about her.
And he just communicates with Rux from time to time.
Enjoyment. 9/10. I quite like relaxing stories so I have no issue with the snails pace, the story is quite interesting and the fight scenes are told with enough detail that you can imagine it well.
Overall. 8/10. Parasite is not for everyone, I like the relaxing pace as I mentioned prior but others will be disappointed with it. The biggest criticism I have is that characters get brought in fast and they get forgotten faster.
His summon. Veil. The Robed man. Farewell, we hardly knew ya.
In short, you have no attachment to anyone but Eiji and there's barely any there either. But for people who want a slow read check out Parasite and if you're looking for a more action based novel. Try elsewhere.
