    I was a bit turned off from the title, but I'm glad that I gave it a shot. This novel is pretty amusing, using misunderstanding-type comedy. Unlike others of this genre, it's not slap-stick because both sides of the misunderstanding are totally unaware that it is occurring. So far it's a slow, slice of life story.

    The MC is an avid reader and collector of books. He uses his transported to another world opportunity to take over a mysterious book store so he can live out his self taught amateur psychologist / life coach ambition by recommending books based on his conversations and observations of the customers.

    This book shop has a cheat where the MC can pull any book from Earth from the back shelves. While the MC selects a perfectly mundane Earth book to recommend to his customer, unknown to him, the customer receives a completely different, magic book with an outlandish title. The customers usually suspect that even though the MC looks like an ordinary person, he's maybe a high tier mage with a strange hobby. As long as they play along, he might help them. Or else!

    The MC is completely oblivious, of course. He just thinks his customers' somewhat odd reactions are because they're ashamed of their personal issues. Perfectly normal.

    Like I said, pretty amusing.

    So far it seems better than I'm Really Not The Demon God. Just from their synopsis, the two stories sound similar. But the MC of I'm Really Not The Demon God is pretty braindead. He somehow has no clue about his powers or that supernatural things exist... HOW!? You have the power of a god (and are worshiped as one)! Your store became an eldritch horror because of the energy you subconsciously leak out! o_O

    The two stories seemed similar at first glance, but I was happy that Demon God's Lackey's MC wasn't braindead. The guy knows supernatural phenomena exists, he just doesn't think he's been in contact with any (except one). Why does his bookstore have all these amazing books despite being just a normal guy? Because he made a "devil's deal" to own all the books in the world. The price he has to pay is quite reasonable too. It's pretty good!

    The hunters setting seems to be the same as bloodborne's one, with the blood transfusion from beast and the beast mutation thing, the only difference is that it come from dream beast while bloodborne come from the old gods but it could be that the author just dont know the full lore of bloodborne.

    What do you guys think, is this just blatant plagiarism or just "taking inspiration" I lean toward blatant plagiarism tbh but I might be biased considering how similar it is to I'm Really Not The Demon God not that I like it, I just loathe plagiarist in general. Its fine if this is a fanfic but that doesnt seem to be the case, well enjoy the novel lads I thoroughly lose all respect toward this author.

    Edit: nvm its not plagiarism but damn the whole novel looks like plagiarism at first glance, sorry to spread this negativity, i'm too quick to judge it.

    It's not an amazing novel(hard to judge now) but it's good and really enjoyable, I'm so glad you recommended me this lol. Too bad there's only 18 chapters at the moment though ):
