This is not the tale of a hero blessed by the gods, loved by the world, and praised by the people. This is the story of a man faced with hardship, abandoned by the world, and forced to continue pushing onward, despite whatever flaws and obstacles may come his way. Still, this isn't the journey of a weak, hopeless man. At least, this is the resolve he has taken--to end this tale as a hero of his own. Maybe not to the world, but to those he holds close. Secluded to his home by his own choice, Ren Nakamura, NEET extraordinaire, exists only by his own pleasure and displeasure, living in his own bedroom in his parent's house, sticking himself to his PC from dusk till dawn. That is until Ren visits the local shop to purchase a new video game, suddenly finding himself transported into another world. Using his wisdom as a shut-in, Ren quickly deducts what had happened: somehow, someway, he had found himself into an "isekai journey", with him as the main character. Ignited by aspirations once again, Ren becomes over-thrilled with the prospect of the magical powers that will be granted to him, only to find out this world doesn't operate in his favor--quite the opposite. Unforgiving, unwelcoming, unrelenting--this is the world Ren must traverse, contrary to the gentle other-world fantasy he had hoped for. Will Ren be able to persevere through these hardships without losing who he is? --INFO-- Check out the Discord for the story! - https://discord.gg/NnFParQz Support me to win WSA2021!

Obligatory author's review here! Some things to note before hopping into this story: -This is a DARK-isekai, the protagonist is weak and flawed, and the world is cruel. Don't expect a power-fantasy, this is a story focusing on the trials the protagonist will face and how he grows to overcome them. -As this is a dark story, please be cautious of vivid, traumatic imagery described in the story. -If death is something you can't handle, this isn't the story for you. With that said, please enjoy!.


I love my Isekai; However, this was totally different from the norm, the author portrays the story in such a way that you're drawn in and before you know it you're already reading the next chapter! The writing quality was excellent! The sentence structure was top notch and the wording is easy to understand. They're also talented with imagery which made the chapters captivating and fun to read. Despite me not knowing much about Ren or Adelaide yet I love them so freaking much! Giving the reader little to no information about a character is a great way to draw them in as they're willing to fill in the blanks. Conclusion: A talented writer with a twist on the Isekai genre. I can't wait to read more and I'll definitely be looking out for the next chapter.


REVIEW Narration: Decent and immersive Worldbuilding: Vast and detailed Character development: Nice and steady Character design: Outstanding Dialogues: Realistic and Lifelike Pacing: Not fast nor too slow Writing quality: Magnificent Execution of the Genre: Good pitch Story potential: High Updating Stability: Steady MESSAGE I am deeply happy that the author joined spirity. As it has the potential to win! With more exposure, this will become great and even reach a million views! Or anime adaptation even a movie! Kudos on your work and See you in December (if you know what I mean) 😉


(Writing this about five chapters in) The prologue starts off mysterious and overall intriguing, making me want to continue onto the next chapter right away. In terms of the writing quality, it is highly-detailed and immersive; lending an smooth visualization of the world the characters are in. The characters themselves are interesting, human in the fact that they are flawed.


It has everything a story needs in my opinion. Good Characters, world-building, an amazing plot, and character development. Not to mention the authors writing style is simply enjoyable.

I can clearly see the author devotion in the book. It's extremely interesting and captivating. I give it full points because I see the high potential in it.


Loved the story, the first part is really interesting and made me feel giddy and excited. I see so much potential in the novel and as well as the author. I found some sentences that me laugh and made me feel excited. And I really love the Isekai genre! Made me totally hook. The writing quality is excellent and the plot is superb! I'll add this on my library so that I can finish it and savor this masterpiece! Kudos and Keep writing!


Based and redpilled. I loved the part when the characters did the thing and I was like "whaa that's so cool!!!" because it was just so so cool!!! I really loved how it explored themes too! Overall great story, can't wait to read more!!


This is truly promising, I loved how the author used 1st person pov on this one, it felts like being inside the novel itself. If ya guys liked to read in 1st person pov, then give this one a try!


First of all, this author is certainly not a newbie to the concept of writing. From the fluent grammar construction to the perfectly-paced development of the story, this is indeed a must-read. The prologue is captivating and from then on, the rest of the story is totally well-written. Author did a good job on this one. Remarkable!


This is billed as a dark psychological fantasy isekai, which is while not rare is also not common. As usual for me, the thing that had me scrolling down to read more was the light tone and excellent English composition. There is a balance of description and dialogue in the writing style of the author that is not wearying to the eyes. And the characterization is painted with a touch more deftness than most writers on this site. Which, kudos. That’s seriously difficult to do. The gory prologue is a counterpoint to the humorous chapters that come next, and adds tension to a novel that starts off as a typical hero summoning isekai. The pacing clips along nicely, and the action while not precisely riveting is definitely very far from dull. Added this one to my library. Author, you're an inspiration. Looking forward to more of your work. Fight on!


(Making this as of chapter 4) So far, the two characters introduced are compelling, with the MC himself being kind of relatable while the heroine is mysterious. In that way, this is kind of a mystery-fantasy to me.


The only isekai you'll ever need. The world is compelling, the characters are well constructed and everything fits together perfectly. Delz is a master of his craft and it shows.


Right away you can tell this story is a departure from most from the isekai genre, which is oversaturated with blatantly overpowered characters. The MC from the get-go is shown to be kind of dorky, dense, and overall not much to show for. Something like this lets you watch and wait as he progresses through these obstacles to become a better, stronger person.


Good start! I’m really hoping the author posts more, but the chapters posted so far have been interested and I definitely see potential here. The main character is funny, though I do hope he gets some cool moments and doesn’t remain this weak, but I guess that’s kind of the point for now? Without spoiling, the story does show a bit of its dark side pretty early on, hoping to see more of that.


a few chapters in it and it made me feelblike I want to inside my game, too... such an amazing way to describe the world, charactersnand descriptions of every move.. ...ah and the magic spells...very catchy~~ one of my fave part.. all in all its a good read... a golden find in treasure box.. gambare, author...


Any stories that can dip into dark places are a must for me and this is one of those. At first, I kind of doubted the "dark" tag on it, but once you get into a certain chapter near the start, you start to see it. I think this one has a lot of potential, it's just starting up--so there are a lot of places it could go from here, I recommend it.


Reveal spoiler


Another isekai, but different! This time the mc is aware of isekai-shenanigans but isn't rewarded with completely over-the-top powers like in most cases, which I like for a change. It seems to be a bit of a slow-burn so far, keeping that in mind, but there has been some action already.
