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.
