Arifureta: From Commonplace to World's Strongest Volume 1

Volume 1, Arifureta: From Commonplace to World's Strongest

This book can be downloaded and read in Apple Books on your Mac or iOS device.


Seventeen year old Hajime Nagumo is your average, everyday otaku. However, his simple life of pulling all-nighters and sleeping in school is suddenly turned upside down when he, along with the rest of his class, is summoned to a fantasy world! They're treated like heroes and tasked with the duty of saving the human race from utter extinction. But what should have been any otaku's wet dream quickly turns into Hajime's nightmare. While the rest of his class are blessed with godlike powers, Hajime's job, Synergist, only has a single transmutation skill. Ridiculed and bullied by his classmates for being weak, he soon finds himself in despair. Will he be able to survive in this dangerous world of monsters and demons with only a glorified blacksmith's level of strength?

Customer Reviews

This is just fun.

Honestly, I am the kind of person who tries a story before I get it, but this is one of those books that I just looked at and fell for on the spot.
Drama, heartache, anger, happiness. These are some of the emotions that I felt just reading the plying thing, especially once I realized that there's a reference to Yogi Bear in it for the happy part.
In summary, read it. I did and if I didn't have work to do I would be reading the next volume instead of leaving a review.

That good stuff

It starts with a generic concept and while it is quite boring to read the first chapter it sets up the characters perfectly. You develop respect and hate at the same time. Then you believe Hajime will be praised for figuring out how to use his skills wisely. Nope. He is betrayer and you're taken along with his pain and suffering and his struggle to survive.

Starts slow, ends phenomenal

As I stated before, it doesn't start off well. In fact, it is kind of boring. But once the first chapter ends, you can tell the author really starts to unleash their creative juices!

In short, if you start reading and don't think it'll be for you... keep going. I promise you will love it!
