    A 45-year-old salary man dies in a train accident and is reincarnated as a newly born baby in a different world. For some reason he had special skills: “Natural Talent” and “Identify.” In order to make the best of this advantage, the protagonist resolves himself for his second life.

    If You’re a Man Then There’s No Other Choice Than Aiming for King, Right? (Translated title.)

    This series is about a person that remembers more about technology than most people learn and discovers a way to gain more magic power than 10 mages combined. A lot of focus is on manufacturing, training and politics up until now.

    As for the most recent chapter, why does he think leather armor is that weak? It is a very good armor if you layer it or get it thick enough. Sword strikes don't go through it if it is well made. Even wool armor works out well if you make it thick. The padding is also very good against blunt weapons.

    Of course rubber would be better if you make it in similar thickness due to the different variants you can make. It is probably not more than twice as good though, so if you have it at half thickness due to cost then the leather armor is likely better.

    See this for example (3:30 in):

    You can get around it by making the MC a male reincarnated as a female though.

    well leather and padded armor can block slashes but will still hurt like hell with a couple of broken bones
    much more with blunt weapons ......

    i think the mc's rubber armor is much better than leather/padded armor

    i mean..... look at the cover of the novel

    the girl's full body armor is made of rubber, looks cool and a lot cheaper than metal one's

    sorry bout the engrish there haha

    So, I started reading, and the MC is surprised that magic is real, after being reincarnated into a medieval world with animal-eared people and getting attacked by a goblin.

    Why doesn't he practice healing on animals?

    I know he doesn't gain the practice while under stress but for pure volume practice it should be best. Take an animal that will be slaughtered and practice animal cruelty until you run out of mana. That way the casting speed can slowly be improved and he can practice with the faster speed on himself along with a spotter that can heal if needed.

    Those side stories were a bit depressing. Guess he will find some truly traumatised people from culture shock and bad experiences instead of the allies he is looking for. Though I guess a few normal ones will manage to get through.

    I really liked the dead-pan of the identify of pregnancy. No sense of responsibility. :D

    Guess we got introduced to a future companion. She is a bit older than him but not all that much. Likely she finds him as the creator of the rubber condom. Kind of big invention to suddenly have crop up.

    Or he finds her due to investigating rumours of a person with a lot of mana or changing training methods of children.

    The bullying is so spot on. Lovingly made so that she can't complain too much while still not being so evil as to create traumas.

    Seriously though, would think you would flatten the breasts as much as possible in order to have a better fitting form and better contact areas while wearing armour.

    I do like that they designed the armour to allow for number 2, which would likely also allow a female to pee (which is a bigger worry most of the time).
