Honestly, I have some trouble rating/reviewing this series.
While it did start out as nothing great or special, it was still interesting enough to read on the side. A great example of the ever common harem LN with a lackluster MMC, decent FMCs, and a setting you can otherwise simply ignore.
Just the usual mix of drama, love rivalry, and an ever indecisive MMC.
At least until you reach about volume 8, where this story just turns into a pain to read. The author keeps trying to build nonsensical climaxes. At this point starting to recycle methods he used already.
Just WORSE. Much worse…
If I could, I’d spoiler the
hell out of it, just to explain how bad it gets. But that would be me putting in more effort than the author himself does at this point. And while I can sympathize with the author struggling through a slump, I still wish he’d rather made the decision to take a break than release whatever volume 8 and 9 turned out to be.
While never great, this LN was at least decent in the beginning.
Looking up to volume 6 or 7, I’d have judged this series with an overall rating of ~7.
But now it frankly turned into a collection of unlikeable characters, uninteresting plots, and love 'schemes' that reached a level of stupidity that start to hurt mentally.
I’d be generous if I gave the later volumes a rating of ~3.
So, would I recommend this series?
Likely no. While still ongoing, I don’t see any future potential here. But if you are utterly bored or don’t mind some random mental gymnastics, sure, go for it.
Reviewer’s Rating: 5
