“Please, I implore you to save the world.” This is what a goddess in white says to me in a pure-white space. Such is the standard line that suggests the game is about to begin. Please say this stirring line to boys and girls with sparkling eyes! It’s wrong to direct it to someone like me, who’s exhausted from job hunting! When I declined her politely, she flew into a fit of tears; when I agreed to assist her on small tasks out of reflex, she proclaimed: “it’ll be fine if you just help in the Starting-Village Arc. Please guide the Hero!” Then she tossed me into another world. No, this is a world modeled after a game that this gamer goddess likes…

NU Link: Here!

T/N: I’m taking over this novel from sleepchaser starting from chapter 11. You can find the previous chapter from the NU page. This story only have 45 chapters (+extra), but each of the chapter length is very long, with the average of 8k-20k words per chapter, so I’ll cut them into several parts (one part is usually 3-4k JP words) to make sure I can update regularly!

  6. I followed this novel for so long.. thank you for picking this up.. thank you for your hard work..

    • Thank you for following this story for so long as well, Frostbytze-san! I’ll make sure to complete this story!

  7. I really like this novel. At first, it did seem like a regular transmigration story with your typical stereotypes and the like. However, I found that the MC and ML are surprisingly relatable. Lian reacts like a normal person in most of the ocassions. For example, even though his older brother is pretty much a comic relief pervert, he’s aware of this fact and avoids his homelife accordingly. This surprised me, one would expect more of an anime style reaction and continuous slaptastic action. There’s none of that. And the times when he seems to be far too foolish and “pure” for this world could be easily explained as his unconcious way of not seeing the world he’s living as “real”.

    As for Alfred, he’s the kind of guy that pretty much does what he wants. His reactions are human and his thought process quite understanding and rational.

    Their interactions are really honest as well. Most of what they do can be explained to hormones, age and loneliness. There’s an understanding that usually is not there in most stories of this type. There are moments that can be taken as dub-con, sadly this is like a rule in BL, however I find it more along the lines of confusion over what their bodies and emotions are processing rather than actual dub-con.

    I highly recomend this story for some light reading.

    Please, do heed the warnings though. They are there for a reason.

    And I would also like to take this moment to thank Mii for picking up this project. Bless
