Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good scifi/fantasy story I had seen the anime based on this light novel series, and then read volume 1 of the manga, which had some slight differences in the story but nice art. So I decided to give the novel a chance despite my reservations based on the translations of the Shield Hero novels. I was pleasantly surprised. The novel is written in good English and, while it again has slight differences from the anime and manga, is close enough that the translation must be well done. As is common in many Japanese anime and novels, the main character is something of an anti-hero: an ordinary middle-aged schmuck working long hours for little pay who ends up in unusual circumstances and rises to the occasion. In this case, an ordinary, overworked game programmer falls asleep at his desk after yet another very late night debugging and rewriting game code. He wakes up in a world that is an amalgam of the two games he was just working on, but with much more detail in colours, smells, personalities, languages, and so on. When he finds himself unarmed and surrounded by an army of strong enemies, he uses an emergency beginner's attack to escape, then passes out. He wakes up to find he is now high level with tons of skill points. In fact, his level is far higher than any monster, human or demi-human he encounters. He wisely decides to hide his true level and skills to avoid trouble, and passes himself off as a peddler/travelling merchant who lost his packhorse. That's when the real adventure begins. I am really looking forward to volume 3, which goes beyond the anime. The price of these volumes is a little high compared to many bestselling North American/European novels, but the premise is reasonably original and the characters are endearing. I recommend you read the first two volumes, then find the anime and check it out. The anime is available dubbed in English or in Japanese with subtitles. I'm sure you'll love the premise and characters.
