Suimei and two of his best friends find themselves mysteriously summoned to another world. There's a cute princess, magic galore, a Demon Lord that needs to be defeated, and a world that needs to be saved—the works! Too bad Suimei isn't interested. His friends are all too ready to play the parts of heroes, but Suimei just wants to get home. He has an advantage as a magician... but he's in for a rude awakening when he finds out what actually passes for magic in these parts.

ok first warning in advance as this is the first review i am writing. i have read many light novels but this is the first review. also spoiler alert.

man now this is a great light novel. At first glance anyone would think that it is just another one of those shitty isekai genre novel with mc who at first refuses t fight the demon king but in the end is the one who defeats him and along the way builds his own harem. i just started reading it for a way to kill time, but man i got so hooked up on it. the character read more

Just another hero summoning story, or is it? Review of Vol 1.

If your friend is a hero, and you are the strongest mage in the world, shouldn't you work together? In other words, I cannot understand what the hell this main character is thinking. He literally abandons his friend to find a read more

This is my second review for an isekai light novel. I am keeping it spoiler free, so you can decide if you want to read this light novel or not after checking out the review.

The story is pretty interesting. It starts out like the usual summoning and stuff, but the depth after it is quite nice. The protagonist does not get side tracked from his main task which is pretty good. Also the author gives some significance to the side character story as well, which makes it more interesting.

The art for a light novel is less as usual, but it is pretty detailed read more
