Hiiragi Seiichi is an ugly, revolting, dirty, smelly fatass; these are the insults hurled at him one after another about his appearance. Such was Seiichi's daily school life of bullying, then for some reason, one day when school was out, a voice claiming to be a God said over the PA system to prepare to be transported to another world. What's more, not Seiichi alone, but the entire school. A fantasy world where game-like elements such as as levels, stats, and skills exist. However, the God still had preparations to complete for the transfer, and would send them over as soon as the hero summoning ritual was ready. The classes all formed groups to wait for the transfer, but Seiichi alone was discluded and as such was summoned to a different area. After being transported the first thing Seiichi ate was the "Fruit of Evolution." This would come to greatly change his life...
This story is about how Seiichi went from being severely bullied by his classmates, even not being recognized for his accomplishments, and despite all that staying positive and surviving in this new world. As a result, he somehow becomes one of the champions. (Also the first heroine is a Gorilla?!)
Story- Overlooking a couple of things, the story was doing pretty well though the early chapters. However, once the mc left where he was original living, the story became ridiculously stupid. I could not believe how much the story change in just a few chapters. Maybe it was supposed to add some humor, with it was over done. After those chapters, I had to drop the series.
Characters- I actually liked the main character at the beginning. His life has been crappy and he was still positive and kept a sense of humor. I figured spending months in
the forest, defeating several monsters stronger than him, and acquiring cheat skills. I figured he was going to keep on progressing, but for some reason he regressed after leaving the forest. He was intimidated by a few thugs. The female character also seem to regress, at least her feeling for the mc.
Enjoyment- I was enjoying reading the story, but after the introduction of the guild, I felt like I was robbed of my time spent reading the beginning. I am going to skip most of the story until he meets up with his classmates.
Overall- I heard that the mc does some incredible achievements further into the story, but the latest English translated chapters put a bad taste in my mouth.
The story is pretty decent, if not crazy at times (with how the MC gains his power and everything), and if it didn't annoy me, it drew me in. The only problem here is that there are a bit too many sub-plots I do not care about, although they may turn out just right depending on how they merge with the main storyline.
The protagonist is unable to really accept his power and he gets depressed all the time when he defeats his enimies easily and sometimes tries not to fight in the first place which caused me considerable discomfort at times, although it was quite
About other characters, some of them are rather unique(the first heroine is a gorilla, there are some perverts etc.) however, in time, the main heroines turn out quite similiarly personality-wise. Another issue is that there are a tad too many, in fact, enough to dedicate to their re-introduction and summary two entire chapters(although the sheer amount of them might not be the only reason) as well as for the author to dedicade 1,5 chapters about a battle to show how minor characters fight as well as name those who have not been thus far.*(Incidentally, the rest was just the protagonist annihilating enemies)
The enjoyment has so far been fluctuating from 6 to 8 where 6 is when the story starts to progress in some direction, which appears to head nowhere, and 8 is when MC gets to be badass or when the story is finally headed towards an acceptable goal. Other than that, the seemingly omnipresent tsukkomi(even the protagonist realizes that he comments on everything all the time) are sometimes rather funny even though it's not really my thing but they generally just set a light mood for an easy read.
Overally, it is a funny novel with not that much action(but when there is, it is quite awesome) focusing more on comedy, its own share of cringeworthy moments and the protagonist's struggle with his own power.
*this might be important later on but at this point in time it was just annoying
