    You cannot compare WN and Manga, the two of them split up really early and from then on

    I believe this manga just wants to play down the seriousness of the web novel [although it still is pretty graphic by times], with the anime adaption being a complete farce of what the story is actually about, the constant struggle of Naofumi against everything in this world.
    And, of course, make it more "interesting" by spicing it up with some battle scenes deemed to be "interesting" for the reader.

    To be honest, making it another predictable "sentai" series this way is what I dislike about this adaption.

    For once you got a decent "isekai" story that doesn't remind you every 5 minutes that it's about a person who came from another world, and then it's ruined by putting generic elements in it (even if it's not generic isekai stuff, at least)...

    Man I don't know what the quality of the light novel or anime is, but this sucks. Disclaimer: I'm only on chapter 29, so who knows, maybe the second half is life-changingly good. But so far the pacing sucks, is seems like characters just teleport from one location to another, just no sense of scale, the story is disjointed and the plot is contrived. None of the emotional moments land. I've been trying to keep reading because the anime was highly recommended (I prefer reading), but the manga, at the very least, sucks.

    the turtle really came out of left field in the manga, is it the same in the LN?

    The art on the cover looks cheap. But you can't judge a book by the horrible shading on the cover. Is this any good? The summary gave very little information about the plot. This manga would have to be very, very good to make a summary like that work. So is it good? Is it worth the read?

    The anime ends around Chp 43/44? The anime had to do a season ender which strayed from the manga and I guess it left a decent cliffhanger if the show ever picks up. If the manga feels bad to read the LN will most likely be worse. Give it a shot, personally I did not like the ending.

    Scanlators, love you guys and all, and I totally get why translators get the R’s and L’s mixed up constantly in Japanese translations, but I kinda wish you guys would watch the animes sometimes (or read chapters previous to where you took over) because it gets a little “frustrating”, I guess? If that’s the right word?? Her name is FILO, if that helps. I’m in no way trying to be a jerk, it’s just that in some mangas I’ve read the R’s and L’s are swapped back and forth even in the same chapter. This can get a little confusing when you first start reading something and you’re not familiar enough with characters—you can think it’s another person. Anyway...there has to be some sort of reference point for translators to know what the main characters names are, right?

    What manga chapter did the anime ended on?
    And why are there so many hate comments? Is the manga adaptation that bad?
    Should I just read the LN then? If so, where can I find it?
