Takarakuji de 40-oku Atattanda kedo Isekai ni Ijuusuru
Kazura bought a lottery on a whim and won 4 billion yen.
To evade the hyenas that smelled the scent of his money, Kazura took refuge on an old residence that had been handed down from generation to generation.
When Kazura was investigating the place that would become his shelter, he stumbled on a certain room where it was possible to go into and back from another world.
The culture and technology level of that world was relatively low. The protagonist sometimes brought goods, sometimes brought technological knowledge.
At that world, he would find his true value as a person.

While Isekai’s are all but overdone in the manga/anime community, I too am a big sucker of them.
However, instead of being reincarnated or transported to a fantasy world, this one takes a different approach; one very similar to “GATE.” However, it takes more of a slice-of-life approach to traveling between worlds and slowly breaks down just how vastly different our modern society is in comparison to these “medieval fantasy worlds.” This take on it is interesting, fairly educational, and rather refreshing for the genre. The characters themselves aren’t SUPER remarkable, but amusing and have enough depth (and a little romance) to drive the story forward. It’s drawn nicely and doesn’t have much of a unique flair, feeling rather generic in that regard, but can also bring out the story in ways that it needs to.
An easy read, waiting for more chapters.
I won 4 billion in a lottery
I can tell right away, this is one of those authors who fell ass backwards into a good idea but has absolutely no capability to pull it off. Imagine . more>> you wanna snoop through someone’s medicine cabinet when you’re in the bathroom. This is the sort of idiot who would leave the door open while he does it.
It wasn’t until the protagonist started having awkward conversations with the nearby villagers that he started putting things together.
When he goes back to get more supplies, he actually says he’s going to make a round trip from another country IN A SINGLE NIGHT. Seriously s*upid author. Just say you are going to your cart which you hid deeply in the woods. At least that sounds more reasonable.
When he finds out the village is suffering from malnutrition, he opts to buy them energy drinks instead of simply fruits and veggies. MORON. He can’t even bring himself to admit to the village that it’s obviously malnutrition and that’s why he can cure them so easily. They could probably cure it themselves if they simply broadened their food intake a little.
Kazura’s naivety’s hurting the story later, he doesn’t want to help the country preparing for war with two country that wanted to attack Kazura’s country. Even though he know very well that if the country is being attacked they will definitely lose and all his precious acquintances will be either dead or ens*aved. He’s “Nope I will only provide you with food and daily necessities, I won’t help with military at all.” Because he doesn’t want to dirty his own hands by inventing ways to produce war tools, Valletta decided to prepare for the war alone behind the scenes without Kazura knowing.
He’s so reluctant taking action to protect the country that he have to call his father for advice, and as expected the father wisely told him to do the thing he needs to do so he won’t regret it later. It seems it’s a clue so he will finally take a countermeasure acts for the war, I’m so happy that it seems he will move the plot again, yet after that he still won’t do anything as if he immediately forgot his father’s advice.
Later the MC become somewhat pathetically useless compared to Valleta, basically she does all the hard work (designing new tools with the help Kazura’s book, negotiate and managing craftsmen, mining steel, smithing weapons etc) while Kazura remains oblivious in his naive world with his beloved compost and windmill. He can’t even perceive malicious intent at all that even a potential antagonist almost snatched Valleta from him and he only thinks of “Maybe it’s fine to give her to him for the sake of her future. I think he’s a nice guy.” Not until Valleta cried desperately because she doesn’t want to be given to that guy Kazura realized that it’s s*upid to hand Valleta over to the other guy. Yet later he disclose all important secret plans to this potential antagonist/bertrayer. the raws stuck at this point that even some Japanese reader also fed up with the current Kazura.
Update: MC is too naive and s*upid for his age. The MC seems like he knows nothing about history, and is too trusting of almost . more>> every one. He is ruining the story, and it would be better if the female lead takes over as the MC.
Now, I sometimes enjoy such s*upidity drenched power fantasy novels myself . more>> but in the case of this novel, I find it hard to swallow. This novel tries to blend realism with fantasy but in a real world, the MC would be locked up and tortured for every bit of knowledge he has. Heck, the entire village, especially the female lead, would suffer the same fate. Some may argue that his pathetic ass was blessed by the God of Luck and therefore landed in a place with kind (even though they betrayed his ancestor) people and government, but please, if the other countries found out what they had, they would band together and attack his sorry ass country which he seems so reluctant to protect.
I hate it when MCs just go around doing sh*t without thought. This particular one irked me the most because he doesn’t even have the overwhelming power to protect himself from the consequences of his actions. Yet he hasn’t suffered any.
Guy wins the lottery but feels burdened by the 10 family members who pop out of nowhere asking for some money. Annoyed and not wanting to share his newfound wealth, the MC drives to the country side. to take care of an entire village of . more>> strangers. Then he voluntarily decides to use his wealth to help a new country of strangers.
I don’t understand what motivates him. If you are familiar with Japanese MCs, you will notice that a lot of the male leads have no real directions or aspirations. They are all ‘will not kill’ or ‘laze around at my own pace’ kind of stories. This is a ‘laze around at my own pace’ kind of story that in theory I should enjoy, but the backstory and MC really holds be back from enjoying it. The MC isn’t particularly cool nor is he interesting. It was the world building that brought me into the story and it is the MC that is going to bring me out of it. He’s too selfless, too dense, too nonsensical, too non human in his reactions. He has almot no passion, no drive and nothing that makes him memorable.
I enjoy the story, hence the 3 stars but it is a slice of life on the weaker side of novel offerings.
This is story about a man with not so ordinary ancestry who . more>> came upon another world in need of his help. Having recently gained a fortunate, he saw no reason not to share his fortunate with those more than in need. He saves the dying on their deathbeds, and they secretly revere him as a god, but when he realizes it’s too late deny it. In fact after awhile some unexplained events might make him the last to realize the truth what he thought was an lie.Kazura was selected as the winner on a lottery that he bought on a whim and received ¥4,000,000,000 (4 billion yen). To evade the hyenas that smelled the scent of his money, Kazura took refuge on an old residence that had been handed down from generation to generation. When Kazura was investigating the place that would become his shelter, he stumbled on a certain room where it was possible to go into and back from another world.
