Okamura Hiiro is introverted and loves books. To him, books are his raison d'etre. His story starts with usual gimmick of summoning of heroes. Five people summoned, but one of them is just an outsider dragged in accidentally, that person is Hiiro. The four others are his classmates, but it's not like they are friends. Unlike him, they are riajuus. Hiiro decided not to help the country, his reason? "I don't believe you. I'm not friends with them. It's not my business, and I'm an ordinary person who cares for my own life, so bye," and he sets for his own journey. Little does others know, that this ordinary person, Hiiro, actually hides a power which could change the world!
This LN is definitely not original when it comes to the story. Well at least not entirely, the main character is in my opinion different from the many others I have seen in this type of story (examples being RE:Monster, Mushoku Tensei, and Tate no yuusha) For starters Hiiro doesn't want part in anything, become a hero? Slay the demon king? Help others in time of need? Nope, he says he is a simple bystander and why should he help the people who forced him into another world and I love that, seriously the main character and his personality make all of the conflicts in this series feel unique. On top of the main character the world itself is in serious conflict and it could be fair to say the brink of destruction. That is all I plan to say on story but I can promise there is a story and it is pretty intense. Anyway the art in this series is nearly non existent, there is some but not much and the reason for that is KnW is a webnovel and they tend to lack art but the art that is there is pretty decent. I gave enjoyment a 9 which is the highest rating I gave to any of the others in this series even overall and the reason being the main characters power is just amazing, it can do basically anything (Teleport anywhere hes been once, put anything to sleep for an entire minute, use any element you can think of) and theres tons more. That paired with the enjoyable side characters and cute cat girls and I seriously enjoy this series. Overall I can think of very many pros and very little cons, it has everything I wanted from a series and even more. BTW there is 600+ chapters to this series... well only 90 is translated but you get what I mean. read more
Overall this LN is not for the ones that enjoy a typical HERO type story.
This is for the people that enjoy a story about adventures.
The LN talks about great detail how the fights are being held, you might argue but its good enough for me to "visualise" what is happening.
IMO they writer couldve described the scenery a bit more but if he did it too much it might become bothersome so i understand.
The story as i said is a standart setting whit a COMPLETE twist wich makes it something of its own. The thing i love about the LN is the adventure of a lone fella that does what he wants whenever he wants whitout any regards to either friends or other beings. In terms of characters every character is different they have their own personality wich you grow acustomed to. I have come to giggle when reading this book many times because you feel like you get to know them.
In Terms of Art... it gets a 4/10 since basicaly its nonexistent the only art there is is the Coverart and from time to time small boxes whit "status windows" as in a RPG. As i said i therougly enjoyed the story and setting for what it is a story whit a twist from the regular lines.read more
