If you like this, and can say YES. There is NO harem. If you're ok with this, and can say YES.
If you're okay with some info dump regarding technologies that are applicable to early 10th to 11th century civilizations and how the MC can take advantage of his personal knowledge and can say YES. There will be dungeon crawling later. Like lots of it. If you're still able to say YES. Still Dungeon crawling in the last chapters You may read them or not. If you're ok with stuff like that, say YES. So if you're ok with the issues above, you'll be like me and enjoy a pleasant story that slowly develops and a character that honestly, isn't a dense idiot. He does come off as smarter than average, wiser than ALOT of reincarnation characters and overall knows his limits and works with it.
The translator Hopefully that pace slows down enough that they don't burn out The 'game system' of the world is developed poorly. Noone in the world realized that practicing magic from a young age can increase your mana pool significantly, but our MC did because he's such a special snowflake. People don't till their fields with animals, they do it by hand because of reasons. Apparently Rubber can be found, developed and mass produced by someone jsdf-turned-salaryman. Unecessary explanations about anything and everything litter the novel. Life itself is a grind, nothing profound or interesting about it kind of defeats the purpose of To be fair though it is slightly better than death march.
And more rubber That's what I got so far. I wonder if his kingdom is going to be rubber kingdom or something? Well, that aside, this is a good novel with a very slow pace, detail world, and tons of explanations. A good read when you have so much leisure time.. I find it kind of amusing that there are people who rate this novel at 1 star aka very bad after having read over chapters supposedly. Well, the story is great and consistent although the author is sometimes rather very descriptive and detailed in If you are looking for something that is quick-paced and fast-advancing, this story is definitely not for you.
Author of novel on leprosy stresses every life has meaning in lecture
The author takes his time to develop the character of the MC and those he meets and is prone to divulging in that so that the main story line at times doesn't really advance for chapters. Of course there are also times where it advances rather quickly as well though. I could tell various things which I like about this story but as most aspects are rather subjective anyways, I will just say that I enjoy this story very much and hope for the translator to continue his good work.
After all it's one of the few works I follow regularly. Plot: 39 people die in an accident and are reincarnated into a low fantasy medieval world called Orth where dungeons and magic exists. MC is reborn in a low noble house and aspires to make his own country. Very rarely there's some confusing sentences but you're not missing anything with the author's writing style anyway. Many chapters in the middle were pasted with Word Wrap enabled, breaking sentence formatting.
Updates are It kills the story pacing and is solely responsible for the slow story progression. Eg: multiple chapters used to explain the MC learning the Appraisal skill; a skill which exists in practically every isekai story and whose characters would understand the mechanics in a paragraph or two. Or when the MC starts doing pointless math, or explaining the obvious like complex explanations of simple game mechanics, or story recaps, or rambles through the entirety of the MC's paranoid thought processes.
Eg: MC's conversations with his family as a baby. The author tries to write it off as his body's age affecting his mind, but it just comes across as an excuse for bad writing. His defining MC cheat power is discovering that magic training as a child greatly increases mana capacity ala Mushoku Tensei , so his magic power is comparatively off the charts. He has 2 unique skills, which in normal stories'd usually be the cheat, but here they're not really interesting. Nothing memorable that'll make you want to draw fanart about though. Animal people, elves and dwarves are randomly interspersed within human kingdoms for no apparent reason.
Human feudal culture is dominant caste system, poverty, slavery, etc. As for tech level, MC introduces rubber as a revolutionary new technology for armor and miscellaneous goods. After leaving his village, MC heads to one of the generic dungeons to fund his future endeavours. World setting doesn't have anything that really stands out.
Stats don't seem to matter. Skills are few and generic. The unique skills the reincarnees get are boring. Levelling doesn't seem very enticive from a reader's perspective; if this was a game you wouldn't play it. Recommendation: Buried under all the useless information lies an okay isekai story. Deliberately identifying and skimming through the word count padding improved my reading experience. So far I haven't really felt the primary fantasy of 'becoming a king. So unlike the other review I have high hope for this novel, if you always hoped for Rudeos Greyrat Mushoku Tensei to build his own Kingdome, this novel is for you, there are even many elements, that give you the same vibe at the start.
The MC is working hard and doing his best, with the body of an infant, acquiring knowledge over magic and the world in general, so spamming "identify" is not the only thing he does and even that identify helps him, in many ways to "manipulate" and The MC is the authors vision of what all smart people think, it even feels as if I'm watching the latest episode of Sherlock. I can take the severe brain beating of the superior Nipon trope in most novels but when the author starts beating off his own MC about his ingenious mental age it reads like the author is just self inserting as a bitter man who views himself as superior to everyone else but still has to abide to the rules all lightnovels have of praising Japan.
And don't even For me this story is unique, Personally I want to hate it, the story is slow, MC is strong, smart but never show it to others, and achievement what make him famous, it make bad rumors flowing everywhere. The craziest thing is the story is slow but it always have the same pace. I never think how the author can make such a boring slow detailed story.
But the MC although smart and strong is not very fiery and passionate person, he is middle aged kind of thing and always do some mind asking stuff. So that the downside of this, I cant seem to like the MC very much, but I cant say he is wrong, its just the author is too detailed telling all this stuff, making people got bored.
The story itself is quite interesting and plain in a sense, there is no great danger or heroic thing, there is war but normal war, so you cant feel passionate kind of thing in battle. Yes there is many life threatening event but somehow you know the MC will survive, with great deal of plain tactic, no exagrated talent thing.

Maybe the most great about this novel is how the author keep this story going with the same pace and making the reader go crazy by boredom. But I must say he does a good job at this, the chara have dept, the story is unique and realistic, the plot is slow but sometimes interesting. And after you read it more and more you realize it actually a slow pace novel that is quite good, its not great but definitely not trash, its have a good storytelling that most novel dont have, and its make you want to know what happen next to some extend. I give it 4 cause its a good novel that have anything to become great but somehow the author want to keep the story his way, and it shows in the story, its not trash or very meaningful story, but its a ride to read.
I recommend to read it if you want to follow the story which make many people die from boredom and leave the rest follow just to know the ending, but stop it if you want a great story or passionate story, cause there is not that kind of exiting development in here. The author can make that, but I think he just dont want to make such mainstream story, he just want to write his story. Well most of these reincarnation stories have a nice start and then things get boring along the way, Not in this novel tough, here things are boring from the very start!
As others users already mentioned, the author keeps trying to explain in detail every system in the world, half the chapters is about him talking about menus, colors of the text, how this and that work etc Apparently he does not have much experience on writing, so I decided to drop this one after struggling with it for a Also the first scene of fighting where usually ppl tend to put some effort to showcase the novel, on this one was quite a lame work, poor writing and a very low story progression make this a Not Recommended Novel.

Some of the side stories are reality checks for this Fantasy world, real heart-breakers for people like me. Grammar: 2. The writing is just a little above average, quite slow paced and a bit too redundant in some areas. The story is about average for a fantasy story, but it does lend itself quite well towards a bit of realism as far as fantasy reincarnation stories go.
All-in-all, not the best, but a good read to pass some time. One of the greatest under-reared novels on NU. I'll just mention a few things the other comments don't seem to cover or things other comments mention but have a differing opinion from my own.
This novel is written with tons of details. Most of the novels on NU are webnovels. They give very short descriptions like the following: Anna was a dark elf with black hair. That's everything that will ever be mentioned about her looks, well maybe her body figure will be described intensely. This novel doesn't give these types Some may like these condensed descriptions but most novels you find in the library like to paint pictures using words.
That's what this novel does. It describes the characters, world, and scenarios like it's trying to paint you a picture.
The Nuns of Nara: An Akitada Novel (Akitada mysteries Book 19)
If you like that sort of thing, then you may like this novel. The author writing this way seems to annoy some readers. It seems like he is trying to write a web novel like he is writing a real book, but I find it enjoyable. It can seem to drag on if your used to fast passed webnovels were the MC becomes a super human by ch and a god by and then the final supreme god by Ch This author spends a lot of time trying to create the fight scenes.
He doesn't describe every fight, but when an intense situation arises you can imagine the scene. You see exactly how the hero is dodging a rampaging bear. It isn't described like: boom MC used the spell inferno 30x to kill the lizard army. So the pace is different but not necessarily a drag to read.
It still has flaws. Like most webnovels there are some weird flaws, the novels may have been appealing if the novels didn't have them. For instance, a reincarnated child overly praised as a genius.
