He gets an all-in-one farming tool that can transform into anything he wants. It’s like having the ultimate Swiss Army knife for farming!
The show is so relaxing and heartwarming, I felt like I was there on the farm with the characters. And the food? It looks so delicious! I was salivating every time Hiraku harvested something. The music is soothing, and the animation is breathtaking. It captures the serene beauty of the countryside perfectly.
But let’s talk about the elephant in the room – the harem. I mean, come on, every damn resident in the village is a hot woman who wants a piece of Hiraku. It’s like he’s living in a reverse harem dream world. And he’s OP as hell, so nobody wants to mess with him. It’s hilarious how he’s building his farm, estate, and business empire while also dealing with the ladies.
The plot is a classic slice-of-life, and the events are based on Hiraku’s POV. The subtle but ever-present hints show off his ever-growing vanilla harem, and it’s just funny to see him play Civ 6 while building his farm. The sound and voice acting are great, and the characters are eye-catching (and forgettable, but who cares when you have a harem, am I right?).

He starts making allies and exploring his abilities, all while avoiding his past mistakes.
Seika is not your typical isekai op protagonist. He’s not a clueless idiot. He remembers everything from his past life and he’s not about to let anyone betray him again. He’s smart, sly, and conniving. He’s not afraid to manipulate or even kill people to get what he wants. It’s refreshing to see an MC who’s not all “morals, morals, morals.”
Of course, there are still your typical isekai tropes, like the childhood friend who’s in love with the MC, magical schools, jealous brothers, and rapey characters who are only there to make you hate them. But you know what? It’s still a fun show.
