Thoughts on Arifureta

Hatred. For the first few chapters, when I start reading Arifureta, that is what I felt to the bullies of Hajime. They got jealous because the ranking #1 girl from his school is casually approaching Hajime every day; just to greet him “Good Morning” which made the whole class hate him, and more particularly the bullies.

Worried. that Hajime is blowing a lot of what he defines as enemies.

Relieved. After he met Yue from the depths of Orcus Dungeon. Knowing that Kaori, the #1 girl from his school, is missing him dearly. And still, haven’t locked his whole heart. And starts to love people around him.

Somehow Proud. As he went on a lot of hardships in his life, he still hasn’t given up on his life and went to fulfill his goal.

Hajime’s quest after he conquered his first dungeon, he finally has a goal: to go back to Japan. With six more dungeons to conquer to obtain the creative magic, together with Yue and more girls to add for each quest to make his dream come true and to stop leading a “sad way of life.”

Did you know that…

  • Most of Hajime’s inventions are named in German.
  • Hajime’s inventions are based on the anime he watched.

How many girls fall for him?

  • You might think three or four. But you guessed wrong, he got a total of eight that loves him so much. It started with his lover vampire princess, a bunny girl, his teacher, a dragon, a mermaid, and two other classmates. Truly, he made a harem, but he never desired to have a harem in the first place. (Damn, I like this dude.)
