This kind of "eh the manga is alright I guess" show will stand and fall on the studio.

Please be Doga Kobo. They are doing really well with Umaru.

Girl: "Hey, let's marry in-game."
MC: "Ok."
Girl: "Now I'm going to meet someone in real life."
MC: "I bet this dumb bitch is going to meet with a rapist or something because lol women are stupid and are willing to get raped for no reason!!! I have to stop this NTR flag!!!"


To be fair the girl REALLY is one of the dumbest females in LN history ever.

But there are no girls on the internet.



Jokes aside, I can't believe a light novel actually exists for this meme.

I usually defend the Dengeki stuff since i'm deep fanboy of them. But tbh, I have no idea how did this sell. It must because of hisasi.

In the translated manga version, the female mc is annoying as hell

I'll watch it. It's not like I have something better to do...

Sounds stupid but also sounds like it could be pretty fun. Of course, it's no surprise to see the anti-LN brigade out in full force as per the usual. I wonder if the day will come when people decide not to shit on an LN adaptation the moment it is announced (hint: it won't).

I'm interested in this one. I read a little bit of the manga version and it's okay. The art by Hisasi is great though.

the manga is mediocore imho. only interesting in the beginning. not too funny. and character design kinda meh (already read manga until chapter 9). only give it a try. LN based always give something. hope not suck.
