Lightnovel / Being Able to Edit Skills in Another World, I Gained OP Waifus

Go To
From left to right is Rita, Nagi and Cecil.
When an entire bus of people are summoned to another world, Souma Nagi doesn't go along with the idea of being a Hero like the rest. Thus, he leaves the palace and starts his life in another world with his ability to restructure skills.

This work includes the following tropes:

  • Above the Influence: Despite knowing that his Battle Harem desperately wants to bear his children, and being strongly attracted to his slave harem, Nagi Soma keeps the sex G-Rated until he can construct an environment where children can be raised safely.
  • Adaptation Expansion: The manga covers things the light novel does not, like the reaction of the rest of Nagi's class to the situation.
  • Aristocrats Are Evil: With the exception of Letcia Milfe and Iris Irfaga, all the aristocrats shown in the story are arrogant, cowardly, despicable people with no ability who are absolutely convinced that they are superior to everyone in everything, and will resort to outright murder to prop up the illusion that they actually are.
  • Battle Harem: The title basically spells it out. Nagi Soma's waifus are all insanely powerful for the world setting, thanks to his efforts.

  • Big Bad: King Natla, the one who summoned Nagi’s class to the other world and forces them to battle the Demon King (who may not even exist) in exchange for their freedom.
  • The Call Knows Where You Live: The call is quite schizophrenic where Nagi's concerned. First, he's Kidnapped by the Call when his school's bus is summoned to this New World, with him on it. Then he's Refused by the Call when King Nadla has his knight literally throw him out with little more than the clothes on his back. Then the aristocracy keeps going after him for little to no reason. So by the end, he's become quite Resigned to the Call.
  • Crapsaccharine World: The New World doesn't look much different from Earth, and the capital city the class was summoned to looks quite happy... Then you look just a little beneath the surface and things are quite scary indeed. There's also supposed to be a Demon King army invading from another world out there somewhere.

  • Dark and Troubled Past: All the main characters, full-stop.
  • Darker and Edgier: In addition to being Hotter and Sexier, the tone is darker and things more dangerous in general, not just for Nagi and harem, but for the rest of the population in the new world Nagi finds himself in.
  • Deliberate Values Dissonance: In this new world, it's a grievous insult to free a slave on a whim, although slaves can earn their freedom by merit.
  • Freedom from Choice: All the members of Nagi's slave harem are perfectly happy letting him make all the decisions. This is justified by the fact that when the girls had the freedom to make their own choices, their lives were sheer and utter crap.
  • G-Rated Sex: When Nagi adjusts or modifies the skills of his slave Battle Harem, the girls' reactions are quite ... provocative, but there is never genital to genital contact.
  • Good Is Not Soft: Nagi and his Waifus are all good, decent, morally upright, and benevolent, always eager to help others. Antagonize them, or endanger the populace for petty reasons, woe be onto you.
  • Happiness in Slavery: Every last member of Nagi's Slave Harem is there because she wants to be.
  • Heroic Wannabe: With very rare exception, all of the classmates summoned alongside Nagi, and most of the the antagonists, do despicable things thinking that doing so will make them "heroes."
  • Hotter and Sexier: The manga is considerably more explicit than the light novel, but it's along the lines of Pg-13 sex compared to G-rated.
  • Interspecies Romance: Nagi is human, but several of his waifus are not.
  • Like a Duck Takes to Water: Nagi adjusts to life in the New World in less than a week. Other "Visitors" are still trying to adapt despite being there for decades, and not all of them come from Earth.
  • Made a Slave: All the main characters, including Nagi, though not in name. This New World is a considerable improvement to his previous life on Earth.
  • Mundane Made Awesome: Pretty much the point of the story. Such mundane skills as sweep buildings and cleaning sludge from a drain find themselves being restructured to awesome effect by the protagonist.
  • My Country Tis of Thee That I Sting: The author is Japanese, the work is Japanese, the intended audience is Japanese. Nagi and the transmigrators are all Japanese. Nagi, the Main Character, is the White Sheep. Everyone else brought to this new world from Japan does horrible, horrible things, without hesitation, or remorse, deluding themselves into thinking it's "heroic," completely chuuni style, and Nagi's memories of Japan, and its culture, are almost all horrific.
  • New Life in Another World Bonus: Skill Structure allows Nagi to do exactly that.
  • No OSHA Compliance: All of Nagi's "part time jobs" on Earth, that he was dragged into against his will.
  • No Such Thing as H.R.: Nagi was forcefully "recruited" and treated as a slave in no less than five "part-time" jobs, and he had no HR department to complain to, or worse, they were all completely corrupt and dismissive, making his attempts to get in touch with the Labor Board meaningless.
  • Obstructive Code of Conduct: "Contract" magic. The New World has an actual god that enforces contracts. It does not care a whit about the situation under which the contract is made. People can be forced to enter a contract under threat of death, and they still must comply with their end, to the letter. If they don't actively strive to keep their end, they get inflicted with increasing levels of insomnia until they comply or die.
  • Our Elves Are Different: The elves of this world setting, though a long time ago, were not only very urban, but complete and total litterbugs. Nothing like elves of other works that are nature lovers.
  • Overratedand Underleveled: Mostly inverted. While they are underleveled, the main characters are underrated and overpowered.
  • Properly Paranoid: Nagi is convinced that should people know his full strength, they would stop at nothing to enslave, exploit, kill, or manipulate him to his doom. He's proven right the night of his very first day!
  • Stupid Evil: The royalty and aristocrats (among other human-centrist and supremacist factions) are all hell-bent on wiping out any and all "competition" as far as fighting the Demon King army is concerned, thus forcing the populace to rely on them and them alone for rescue and protection. The biggest glaring flaw with this "strategy" is that humanity needs all the help it can get in fighting the Demon King army in the first place, otherwise Nagi and his class would never have been summoned to this New World.
  • Unfortunate Implications: In universe. The fact that his slave harem calls him "husband" not "master" weirds out everyone who hears it, including Nagi himself. When he goes on dates with them, and eventually starts undertaking rituals to make the husband/wife stuff legit, everybody who can actually run such rituals is genuinely freaked out.
  • Unwanted Harem: Nagi only sought out and bought Cecil Pharot, for pragmatic not romantic reasons. The rest of his slave Battle Harem was basically forced upon him by circumstances beyond his control. He still treasures each and every one of them though.

How well does it match the trope?
