    Description:

    Kenichi Yamada was a 35-year-old salaryman. As a hardcore game enthusiast, he was saddened by the modern trend towards casual games.

    So, when a site claimed to be “for people who like to do things the hard way,” he just couldn’t resist. Thus, he was reincarnated into another world as Allen, playing on Hell Mode.

    This is fantasy light novel about Allen’s journey as a summoner.

    Reincarnated as a serf, he starts from nothing.

    His journey begins with absolutely no knowledge of the world around him, just like those games he played 10, 20 years ago.

    I've been wondering about this since the Gate of Extra and "Extra Mode" came up: is Hard and Extra the same in Japanese?

    i.e. Hard Mode would be written the same as Extra Mode


    Btw to any new reader I would recommend this, just keep in mind that it's very slow progress, and you might want to consider reading the manga adaption and then move to the novel. The manga is pretty much 100 novel chapters condensed into 10+ chapters and I didn't feel like I missed anything.

    Plus a lot of the skills disappeared in the old chapters from the novel translation ever since the website changed so it's pretty confusing to read the first 150 or so chapters of the novel.

    The Skills missing problem has been sorted now, so you will not face the problem.

    And I don't think the Hard here has any relation to Extra, Since it's written in Katakana scripts in the original raws ( as hellmode).

    Oh so there was an explanation for the Modes and what they do back in chapter 1:

    https://hinjakuhonyaku.com/novels/hellmode/hellmode-c1/

    • Easy Mode
      Acquire skills 10 times faster than normal mode; Skill development is also readily possible.
      Up to 3 extra skills can be drawn from the gacha.
      Greatly popular with those players who are beginner gamers and/or hate grinding.
    • Normal Mode
      The regular mode.
      Only 1 extra skill can be drawn from the gacha.
      This is the most popular mode; Players can nurture their characters.
      Best option if you’re puzzled on which mode to pick.
    • Extra Mode
      Acquiring skills and skill development takes 10 times more effort than the normal mode.
      However, it’s possible to reach stages unavailable to normal mode in this mode.
      Only 1 normal skill can be drawn from gacha.
      A mode suited for players used to the game and/or players who are discontent with how easy the normal mode is.
    • Hell Mode
      Leveling up, acquiring skills, developing skills — all are 100 times harder than normal mode.
      There is no limit to how much the character can grow. As there’s no gacha in this mode, only the skills chosen in occupation can be acquired during early stages. “Repentance always comes too late”. You will most likely be faced with despair.
      If you are able to overcome this despair, you will surely come upon one truth. This is a mode made by the developers’ playfulness.

    And something interesting is that in https://jatranslates.wordpress.com/2021/05/31/hellmode-001/ Extra Mode is called Hard Mode, so Extra and Hard Mode are different translations of the same thing.

    a little bit advice on you newcomers who are into this novel. this is just an opinion of a guy who already read some few aheads of the raws.
    this whole novel is just a repeat of the same plot and character dev, progress and so on. basically its repetitive. theres nothing to look forward to, in my case, after mc retaken the elven continent arc. so there you go. tho i must say the journey i had from reading this novel is undeniably fun.

    i know. i also join on discord as well but since i dont like discord that much and rarely go there as well, i end up not knowing anything about updates on it. i'll just go and read it once it already completed.
