When I woke up, I found myself inside a spaceship.

I guess you guys think I’m talking nonsense here, but I also have absolutely no clue about what exactly happened to me.

I was really close to completely losing it, but fortunately, I managed to notice that this place was really similar to the world featured in a game I was playing recently.

Am I dreaming? Nope, it’s no dream. Maybe I actually got sent to a different world or something?

But didn’t those things usually involve getting sent to a magical world with elves, dwarves, dragons and whatnot?

In any case, I don’t know what caused this, but I guess I’ll just have to suck it up and live properly in this world from now on.

It’ll be okay. I got my trusty spaceship so I can probably make some money. It’ll work out! It has to!

This is the story of a man abruptly thrown into space along with his private spaceship. He runs around the universe with it and saves damsels in distress along the way, flirts with said damsels, earns money as a merc-for-hire and uses his gaming knowledge to work his way into living freely and easily.

    Probably one of the best isekais out there. And one of the main reasons: The Mc is in possession of a pair of balls larger than bacteria, a true rarity among isekai MCs.
    The World building is pretty good.
    It’s a Harem story but it’s well written so everything alright on that front.
    Also I play EVE so this just gets extra points from me.

    The arcs covered within the first hundred (give or take a few) chapters is some of the best science fiction adventure I’ve read. Then the quality tanks to the point I got angry. Then it improves after that awful arc, but never re-achieves what it did earlier on. It honestly feels like the author changed after the conclusion of the first Dareinwald conflict arc. The worst part is that the author forgets things they’ve previously written in the later chapters, making for some large plot holes. That said, even after that awful Space Dwerg arc, it’s a fun enough space adventure/romp.

    Such a damn good fun and comedic read.
    Real fine space Action/adventure story with some kick ass combat all around. Hiro is such a OP and polarizing main character, I love just watching him react to the world and seeing the world change around him.
    All the girls of his harem are quite wonderful; to their reasons for wanting to be with him, to just seeing how much theylove being with each other is so refreshing. They don’t just love him alone, they love the life they now lead and friends with each other they have gained because of him. Honestly one of the most harmonious harem’s I have read before.
    Also MASSIVE respect to SFBAKA and Thor’s Stone. Their translating talent and flow of everything within this story is superb. The two of them kick ass.

    Its realy easy to read and good to destress. Perfect for long evenings with humor and action. If you like isekai and SF with a bit of space magic its one of, if not, the best story out there, definitely I would recomend it to anyone. Some harem tropes but done ok. Good job author.

  5. Zeke666

    The story, setting, and plots are so good. Mc’s personality is nice, morally lawful. Wholesome moments with the girls or sometimes doing the deed. New star system. New troubles but surpassable by the MC. Good number of diversities or races. Nice, beautiful & awesome story. Best space isekai so far. Kudos author!

  6. toynanaka

    Clean and simple read, beautiful world setting and lots of funky SF nonsense. Could even head back to reread the whole thing. You get spaceship, SF, cute girls, a growing to be too large harem, but still rather logical way to doing things on a overpowered MC. The manga adapation is extremely pretty but slow so come over here to read up

    The only Space Isekai I know of really good with a likeable mc who’s not a beta. Has a good world building and story progression is really goid too overall i like this series very much. The Manga adaption is good too but i can’t wait for updates so here i am

    Only good space based Isekai I’ve read in recent years. Nice romance Mc is not a complete wimp but not a jerk either. Interesting backgrounds for the lovers. He is really trying not to be the cliche Protag but the universe is no making it easy. Pretty much a feel good story with space battles, saving princesses, killing monsters, and getting the girls.

    love this and have even gotten the ln and manga adaptations. im waiting for an anime and will keep waiting as the mc is op but bot too op. there is a mecha element in the power armor and its been mentioned that there are humanoid ships not that they show up yet. the romantic interests are well flushed out and only the first couple seem rushed but there are even 2 super slow burn romantic interests so it has a bit for everyone without seeming forced. mc even has the option to just be a noble/royal and turns it down. though it is debated if he will be a noble in the end. in short this is great and doesnt force anything and slowly works all the tech in quickly and seamlessly.

    I hope this novel gets an anime adaptation soon. Very rarely is there an isekai anime with mecha elements in it. Moreover, the MC is quite overpowered and will continue to grow as the story progresses, but is often at the center of the problem. The depiction of characters is solid and brief but easy to understand. Describes the life of a mercenary that is different from the others.

    1. SFBaka

      Well, I think there’s a good chance of that happening since it’s gained quite some traction and even got published in English. The LN is up to Volume 9 on JP, with Volume 10 already on the way.
