This novel is one of the "Deconstructing being reincarnated in a fantasy world" kind, which have been becoming so popular lately that they became their own category.
What differates it from those other novels is the humor. The protagonist is not one of those "I stopped being human so I don't care about humans anymore" characters, but an honestly nice and laid back, but still hard working guy. He does not develop a god-complex over his abilites but decides to change his enviroments for everyone's amusement and benefit. His narration can get pretty hilarious.
The setting might be a bit common, but the side characters are
likeable and easy to imagine. Don't be surprised when a character turns out to be more complex than suspected! The arcs are rather different from each other and don't just recycle previous plot with different characters.
While some people might critizise that the protagonist becomes overpowered, there are several characters that are obviously stronger than him.
The updates of the translations are rather quick and the author even gave his consent so you won't have to fear it suddenly disappearing like several other works.
I personally really enjoyed it and I hope my messed-up review convinces some people to try it out. It's not a masterpiece, but it is worth a read.
