Synopsis

Jason wakes up in a mysterious world of magic and monsters. He’ll face off against cannibals, cultists, wizards, monsters, and that’s just the first day. He’s going to need courage, he’s going to need wit and he’s going to need some magic powers of his own. But first, he’s going to need pants.

Follow Jason as he makes a place for himself in a world that is strange, yet sometimes strangely familiar. He’ll meet crime lords and aristocrats, gods and monsters on his path from would-be victim to heroic adventurer. At least, he tries to be heroic. It’s hard to be a good man when all your powers are evil.

Release schedule is 5 chapters per week, Monday-Friday.

Please note: I am Australian and this story is written in Australian English, so there will be less of the letter Z and more of the letter U.

      Very good, fun and reasonable. Excellent characters. The power system is extremely interesting.

      A minor issue: the reduced weight skill. Reducing weight doesn't reduce gravity. The skill wouldn't let Jason fall any slower, unless he could go down to a fraction of a kilo and his body's air resistance started making a significant difference. He'd have to be that light to walk on water, too. But an entry level skill can already reduce his weight to at least a hundredth? What's the use in raising it? And he should be terribly fast if his muscles have so little weight to push.

      A major issue: the perfect dialogue. It's odd. Unnatural. Every exchange between the main character and another character proceeds perfectly efficiently. In such a well-written story, the dialogue is too well-written on a surface level. There are no breaks, backtracks, or illogicalities, and the MC never truly has his worldview tested. Instead, conversations are always reasonable and easy. This is unrealistic and uninteresting. The world isn't so perfectly simple, and while an adventure in another world is a relaxing escape, making it so simple and perfect makes it boring. Every dialogue so far reminds readers that this story is the product of one author's imagination, and that this author empathizes heavily with the MC. Challenge the MC. Challenge yourself.

      I was at first sceptical when starting HWFWM, any yet Shirtaloon sucked me in all the same. The author has used the isekai, LitRGP tropes effectively and has distinguished the story as its own entity unbeholden to such tropes alone. Shirtaloon has crafted his own world, system and brilliant characters that keep me wanting more and more. That is another thing, with the rate of chapter releases his readers become enthralled with the writing and dedication of the author. I cannot recall a single chapter being wasted or disappointing, and so in this way Shirtaloon has done near everything right to deserve 5 stars from me so far. 

      The style is easy to read, the story possesses character depth, and the prose conveys emotion very well. This story is far from the usual quality of writing I have found from Web serials; give it a read!

      Loving this so far. The protagonist seems both likable and realistic, and although it's very early, the premise thus far is incredibly interesting. 

      The detailed explanations of the system give the sense that this is well thought out, and the world and other characters seem fleshed out, vibrant and 3 dimensional. 

      Gary is the best!

      lol, looking forward to Australian English translation, I just hope the text won't be upside down.

      UPDATE: So it's been 16 chapters since I posted my comment, so here comes the very basic review, the story looks very interesting, the MC is likeable, I especially like the fact that 

      Spoiler

      he actually told his companions  (as of chapter 16) that he is from another world,

      [collapse]
      which is not something that happens often in any story that is about travelling to a different world. Other than that, I have nothing more to say, there isn't enough chapters to say anything else, I'll give 4/5 just because there isn't enough chaters.

      Overall, the story is very well written, and worth reading.

      The MC is humorous, relatively hard working, and in general is just a man who is very far from home and dealing with the hand he has been dealt.

      The side characters all have a decent amount interesting aspects to them and, aside from Bert (nothing against any of them, it's fun to see where the next one will show up), aren't really copied repeatedly.
