    Slipping in another world

    Another fun and light story, which is fun to read and pick up where you left off without trouble. One of my favourite series to read. I would recommend this to anyone who has finished the 1st and is thinking about getting the next one.

    Fascinating story w/ dull characters

    I read the first volume in this series a while ago, picked up the second volume, then wandered off into other areas of interest. Since discovering J-Novel Club recently, I noticed they were the ones who published this series, and that this series was on volume NINETEEN. I remember enjoying the first volume, but I couldn't imagine the premise could spawn 19 additions. I have to admit that I am baffled. The premise of someone from our world being stuck in another world with a magical iPhone is a fun idea. However, the main character is such a boring person—a cipher that somehow attracts the adoration of kings and women—that I found the story deeply flawed. None of the women/little girls who flock to be by his side, who fight to be his main girl, have personalities teyond their character description. One is the princess, the other is the Japanese warrior, then there's the pugilist and the magic user. That's the sum total of their character traits. That and they have a crush on the main lead. Meanwhile, the story involves the main character learning new ways to use his null magic to be godlike. The reader will either enjoy this or grow tired of it. I can't explain why there are 19 volumes of this series, but I can say that despite the flaws that I have detailed, the story is still interesting to read. It's written in the light novel/pulp fiction way with an emphasis on action, not word craft. It's a pantser's paradise. You can almost feel the author exploring the ideas as he's writing about them. The author creates a geeky intensity in his writing as the main character's magic system is explored with its limitations and strengths. Readers who enjoy magic systems will find this aspect of the story entertaining. In fact, reading about Touya figuring out how to use his smart phone to interface with the new spells he's discovered is the driving force behind the plot. Either the plot follows the discovery of a new spell, or the plot is resolved by the application of a new spell. They work hand-in-hand. Fuyuhara makes it interesting reading. I just wish that the harem aspects of the series weren't so puerile. A peek into the authors mind can be found in the afterward where he writes about enjoying certain scenes for their comedic element. Humor is subjective, though, and I didn't find the slime castle with its sense of impending nakedness as funny as he did. Still, the author is creating an interesting world here.
