    ... the description is not helpful. Is the MC a support class that encompass blacksmith, monster tamer/ carer, baaically the entire party's supply line?

    As the name of his job has been labeled he is an all rounder. As for what he did when he was in his old party before getting kicked
    he has a sub job of alchemist and learned to make potions he has capacity to make low,mid tier potions but with some issue in making high tier potions without the material also his potions have some bonuses that range from 5-25% more effectiveness than most potions available in the market. He also is skilled in armor maintenance and at taking care of beast servants. He lacks lacks combat prowess both physically and magically because his old party had deep rooted bias and also were incompetent with proper training he might become an above average adventurer.

    this is starting to become a new trope. Hero party discards all rounder and then collapses because they don't realise how much the all rounder was doing for the party. Meanwhile all rounder gets a new party and realises how strong/necessary he/she is

    The "Hero" party are all supstandard adventurers, and are all to self absorbed to teach properly (which is why the MC is still in the beginner apprentice adventurer job) the only reason they got the hero designation is one of them captured a injured griffon (very high rank magical beast in their world, beyound what a normal party can handel) and assumes that since he has a subjugation collar on the griffon it will do what he says he also has 2 magic wolves that I think are young Fenrirs, and declared himself a tamer. The griffon is strong enough to ignore the collar (I think the wolves might be able to as well) and was only sticking around for and loyal to the MC (but is a huge Tsundre about it). It looks like once the griffon finds out about the MC being booted he will arrange the downfall (and possible deaths) of the "Hero" party and join up with the MC. Though from how far I am that could just being leaving since the "Hero" party has created a bad situation by using something that they should not have (an intermediary product the MC made before being booted that was not finished and needed dilution because its effects were way to strong) and it created a monster outbreak that could cause damage to their kingdom of idiots.

    It might be worse in this one, since the adventurers on the cover are from a foreign (Island) nation that is much better run and educated, where their education system would mean the MC would never have been considered a failure (But it does not seem to apply to nobels since the "Hero" partis priest/mage was booted form the church and became an adventurer fine). The nation the story takes place in is extremely stubborn and idiotic to the point of wasting lives. It has an extremely strong social stigma against changing your career even to the point that a apprentice can not change masters if they get stuck with someone who can not teach to anyone even slightly different from them, which is to common and the MC's problem (the party he is with can not teach, the leader and mage are both to self centered
    the mage is a spoiled noble who only thinks about herself and complains that she can not take a maid along into the forest to do chores for her and is more concerned with her appearance and getting back into the church (after she was booted for some scandal she has definitely not learned from and would almost definitely recreate or do worse) then her job as an adventurer , to the point she is wasting magic to on restoring her appearance, and was even closing her eyes and doing nothing when that party was being attacked in 1 fight
    ).

    It basically feels like they are suppose to be form a Japan equivalent with modern education philosophy, while the story takes place in the worst stereotype of fantasy medieval Europe.

    Though "adults are useless" is a way to common trope in young adult targeted literature in general, not just Japaneses novels

    Hidden MC skill: Lower IQ. Just the mere existence of the MC lowers the intelligence of everyone in the kingdom where he resides.:facepalm:

    Now we know why so many stories has the MC hunted.:ROFLMAO:

    Complications are good.:aww:


    Will he get overpowered later?:aww::blob_grin:

    At this pace where the guy gets to learn so much skills due to his Allrounder job, yes. Think Grid x Madra x Braham x the spear dude x the shield dude x the bow elf (drawing reference from Overgeared, in case it isn't obvious), then mix with xianxia style pill making (potion), weapons creation (Grid), magic creation (Braham), and all the other random shits.

    Interesting emphasis on realistic scenarios...the bit about the guild master of the adventurer’s guild worrying about the reputation of the Hero party.:p

    Which he should have before they became the hero party.... not after the "baggage" they discarded was picked up by someone else he has an inferiority complex towards.

    Well it's true. It's been used for a while now but I think more novels and manga of similar type are being translated recently

    They are skilled somewhat but not on the same level as their guild rank and also were weo dependent on mc and are incompetent in the ways of adventuring now.

    Maybe. He's got the underestimated protagonist tag after all.
