DISCLAIMER: THIS REVIEW WAS WRITTEN ONLY AFTER HAVING READ UP TO CHAPTER 12
Can I just say wow? I don't think I've ever gone into a series expecting less and been so so wrong. If you read the description or look at the cover art your first reaction will probably be "Really? Another isekai harem? When will the SAO wannabes finally die?", and then you will precede to read it anyway as a guilty pleasure because you're bored trash and have nothing better to do.
Allow me to say one thing:
READ THIS MANGA.
So you know how typical isekai protagonists are some hated garbage of humanity,
they die unexpectedly, end up in a new world, become super op, and have a truck load of girls they sleep around with? This manga is nothing like that. Lots of political intrigue, some thought was put into the plot, the mc isn't some awful guy that sleeps with anything that isn't male, and it has a lot of unexpected twists. I am constantly worried that the author is going to revert back to cliche isekai tropes, and then I am always equally impressed that the author makes original choices and plot developments.
Yeah, it's just really good. I gave it a 9. Did I give it such a high score because I was expecting something way worse? Probably, but perhaps that is what makes it so enjoyable.
