Amakawa Haruto is a young man who died before reuniting with his childhood friend who disappeared five years ago. Rio is a boy living in the slums who wants revenge for his mother who was murdered in front of him when he was five years old.
Earth and another world. Two people with completely different backgrounds and values. For some reason, the memories and personality of Haruto who should've died is resurrected in Rio's body. As the two are confused over their memories and personalities fusing together, Rio decides to live in this new world.
Along with Haruto's memories, Rio awakens an unknown "special power," and it seems that if he uses it well, he can live a better life. But before that, Rio encounters a kidnapping that turns out to be of a princess of the Bertram Kingdom that he lives in.
After saving the princess, Rio is given a scholarship at the Royal Academy, a school for the rich and powerful. Being a poor orphan in a school of nobles turns out to be an extremely detestable place to be.
I live in a relationship of love and hate with this novel, some parts I love it, in others I hate it with all my might.
The story is a bit different from the other isekai novels, this time instead of the protagonist reincarnating in another world, he dies and only his consciousness is transferred to the body of a person already alive in this other world, and with that he ends up acquiring for himself , the wishes of that person. The romance and the drama also deserve to be mentioned, this novel narrates it in a very good way for a harem/isekai story.
interesting part is that in this novel the life of the protagonist begins very hard, he is a orphan living in the streets of a medieval-like fantasy world, and this is something that we rarely see in stories of this genre. Wink
Now we go to the problem, the story of this novel starts very good, and in a non generic way, but some chapters later, the pace begins to get VERY slow. It is disappointing, soon the story begins to bring clichés of the genre, sadly, it starts differently, but after a few chapters, it is the same as any other story of the genre.
well, it does not have much art, it's a light novel after all, but the little art it has is pretty.
The protagonist Rio is the only intriguing character, since he is a conscience
with his own feelings and desires, which hosts the feelings and desires of another person. He is completely different from the other generic harem protagonists, since he already says which girl he loves, from the beginning.
He did not even pay attention to the other girls.
Honestly, he is the only character worth mentioning here, since heroines are generic and follow common archetypes in this genre, such as furry imouto, loli teacher, etc.
The overall story is very nice, has its low points, but worth reading, is a good light novel. The slow pace is annoying, but it can keep you going, making you anxious about what will happen in the next chapter.
Some characters are generic and annoying, but the protagonist is so interesting that you do not want to care much about others. Anyway, it's worth it.
An orphan saves a princess from being kidnapped. And is hated by everyone for it, because he's a poor commoner, unfit to even live on the same planet as the "chosen elite". So everyone wants him dead, because no one likes a hero who was born with nothing. Me, I liked this protagonist.
Story: After saving a princess, an orphan boy is forced to go to a school for the chosen elite, nobles and royals. He's harassed, bullied and hated for no reason. And finally he's accused of being a criminal after saving the princess for a second time. It's to make you feel sorry
for him, and to make you continue reading to see how he finally gets justice.
Personally, I liked the story at first. Seeing our little boy join the best school in the country. Being smarter and stronger than all of them, and ignoring their mean comments. It was entertaining. But sooner or later you simply get tired of the "let's all hate the princess' savior for no reason" behavior. It rivals the "Rising of the Shield Hero" when it comes to everyone hating the savior.
Art: It's so damn beautifully, but there's nothing special about it. It's the highest quality of a generic art style. Like a good fast-food franchise. It' might be good, but it's still just fast food.
Characters: Rio the protagonist is a likable guy. He's strong, smart, quiet and cool. He's a typical good guy character, loved by the girls (harem warning!) and hated by everyone else.
Everyone lies to make Rio look bad, everyone wants him dead. Rio being a commoner, and "everyone" being the important nobles, and no one is brave enough to defend a commoner from the nobles.
Overall, if you like stories where the main character is surrounded by girls and all the politicians, nobles, leaders etc wants him dead, this might be for you. But the story evolves very little, the author is stubbornly making this a "feel sorry for the main character!!!" kind of story. Even if there's no logical reason for him to be that hated.
I personally did not enjoy this story, only because of all the hate the little hero gets. But that's just my opinion. And I'm more disappointed than anyone, that first chapter was so damn good but then it just went too far with the melodramatic twists.
