A high school student named Yuto Nakatani is supposed to have an ordinary life. But one day, he is isekai’d to another world with his class.
The transferees gain powerful skills, and they are worshipped as heroes. However, Yuto got the unfavorable skill [Absorption].
Absorption is a skill that Yuto Nakatani, the main character of Isekai Summoning Rebellion, possesses. It initially manifests as an ability to draw things a little closer, but quickly becomes much more powerful.
It also allows the user to copy the power of anyone they’re in contact with, and can even incapacitate them for a period of time. While this skill does have some negatives, it’s still a useful one for any user of the Dragon Balls.
The Dragon Balls themselves are a form of energy, which can be absorbed and regenerated by them. As such, they’re an excellent way for the heroes to increase their overall power without having to rely on any physical strength or magic.
As such, they’re an invaluable part of any team. When Vegeta releases a ball of ki that mimics the moon and absorbs its Blutz Waves, it multiplies his power level by 10 times in the process. Afterward, Krillin uses this skill to mold a Spirit Bomb from the remaining ki.
Another good example of Absorption is when Vegeta angrily confronts Gohan, who is reluctant to fight at first. However, he’s quickly convinced to help by Goku. The resulting battle between Vegeta and Gohan is a great show of how powerful the heroes can be when they work together.
This shows that they have more power than most people realize, but they also have to be careful about who they share it with. This is particularly true when the Heroic BSoD comes into play, which essentially means that they must choose who to give their skills to.
When the group is attacked by a monster, Piccolo has the advantage over him, but he soon realizes that the monster is emanating multiple ki readings similar to Frieza, King Cold, Vegeta, and Goku. This causes him to lose his concentration and become vulnerable to the monster’s attacks, which are all aimed at him. When he tries to counteract this with a technique he knows, the monster suddenly takes him down.
The story begins when Tsukuru Nakatani is isekai’d with his classmates to another world as part of a hero’s auction. The competition was fierce with each nation bidding for a hero to defeat the demon king of their own territory. As luck would have it, Tsukuru didn’t receive the most expensive bid and got thrown out through a transfer gate to a magical forest in the middle of nowhere.
What he doesn’t expect is that he’ll be fighting in this new world with a slew of other heroes, all with legendary weapons to boot. As the weakest of the four, his only hope is to become the legendary Shield Hero and save the day.
As it turns out, the most impressive skill that Yuto was given to improve his odds of success isn’t a magic trick or an artifact; it’s actually a real-life ability known as Absorption. It’s an innovative power copying technique that allows a user to duplicate the strength of any person they’re in contact with. Unfortunately, it’s not without its share of pitfalls. Among these is that you can only use this skill when in close proximity to other humans, and even then it’s pretty hard to keep it under control.
After a school trip, the goddess summoned many students from a high school to another world. According to the goddess, summoning so many best-ranked heroes like S and superior ranked ones like A was unusual. However, Mimori Touka was the only one with the lowest rank: he is an E-rank hero in the “failure frame” of the stepped pyramid frames. His status is overwhelmingly low when compared to his classmates and his peculiar skill, Abnormal State Skill, looks like an absolute failure.
Despite this, he aims to get revenge on that conceited goddess who cast him into this hellscape. As he advances and strikes back, he gains new abilities and companions along the way. He also tries to protect his weaker classmates from the wrath of this cruel goddess.
But this is a story that doesn’t always manage to keep its characters’ development smooth. It focuses on game stat tropes and doesn’t really manage to make its world and magic systems feel realistic. It’s not that the author is trying to write a bad book, it just doesn’t have the skill to do it well.
As a result, it feels like there’s a lot of arbitrary gamification going on here that doesn’t quite feel as important or meaningful as other isekai stories in this niche have tended to be. That doesn’t mean it’s a bad book, but it’s one that’s unlikely to win you over. If you’re looking for a change of pace from the usual isekai revenge fantasy, though, Failure Frame might be worth checking out.
