About The World's Strongest Rearguard Labyrinth Country's Novice Seeker Novel Volume 1

The World's Strongest Rearguard: Labyrinth Country's Novice Seeker Novel Volume 1 features story by Towa Akatsuki and art by Huuka Kazabana.

After living life as a corporate lapdog, Arihito is reborn in a fantasy world. Strangely, the class he's assigned is the very ambiguously titled Rearguard. It seems weird, but Arihito soon figures out that though it isn't flashy, he's gained the ability to do just about everything in battle, from assisting attacking and defending to healing! As he begins his new life, he quickly gathers curious companions: his old supervisor who's younger than he is, a mysterious demi-human mercenary girl, and a gorgeous high-level swordswoman. With this bevvy of interesting ladies in his party, his journey as the greatest supporter that's ever lived!

Nothing to see here...

A passable isekai story that really fails to distinguish itself from the multitude of harem fantasy series out there. It fits somewhere between Smartphone and Arifuerta in terms of plot. Mildly recommended for anyone looking for a distraction while waiting for other, more interesting, titles to be published...

A Hollow Isekai


This series, which I will shorten to 'Rearguard', can be best described as a series with some interesting ideas, but a major failure in execution. For Rearguard, there are a multitude of adventures and concepts, but it really doesn't have a larger goal. This causes the series to feel quite empty. The series seems to build up to some sort of intrigue, but I feel it isn't quite enough. The volume leaves you less wanting answers and more with a simple shrug of your shoulders. Whether you get more or not, you're really not missing out much.

Overall, Rearguard is a lackluster series. Even 'In Another World With My Smartphone', which has similar issues, is a better experience overall with how bizarre and off-the-wall it can be with it's events. Rearguard feels hollow: while I wouldn't fault someone for reading it, it pales in comparison compared to most other series out.

An interesting take


While there is no SSJ3 over powering character it has an interesting concept. I like how the MC isn't a clueless one but more like just dismiss that is the possibility they like him. Its a gentle start but has enough to let you realize the perils they can face. I enjoy it and can't wait for the next volume.

I would pick gambler as a job :D


Its not your typical Isekai, i bought it on a whim to see if i liked it. to my surprise it was enjoyable. The MC is more of a support role, analyzing and strategizing. I really enjoy the leveling and skill overview and explanation and how the teams skills progress. if you are into watching the MC grow and acquire new skills and companions and fights against monsters. give it a try :)
