I, Ichinosuke, failed to get a job for a 100 consecutive times. Furthermore, my record is still being updated as unemployed.

On my way to a job interview, I was involved in an accident with a truck and tragically passed away.
And then, a Goddess bestowed upon me the ability to grow at a speed 400 times faster than normal, before sending me to a game-like otherworld.
However, knowing that I would not become stronger even if I continued growing while jobless, I aimed to get a job, but I found out that it was my terrible fate to remain jobless.
As my Growth Cheat and Jobless Cheat existed side-by-side in this otherworld, an adventure record, no doubt certified by the job-placement agency as a harmful book, begins here.

  10. Guest

    When will chapter 41 be out?

  11. Skallagrim

    Don’t know if some already said this but I think there is a grammar mistake in the title.
    In my opinion it should be: I’ve become able to do anything ….
    This should be if you wanted to use Present Perfect which is build with have/has + 3rd form of the verb.
    The three forms of become are become – became – become and so it should be become instead of became.

    Wall anyway just a random rambling.

  12. Mau

    What are the realease dates for this novel?

  13. Đô Trần

  16. Unbreak

    First, thanks for the chapters.

    I minor correction, but I think has a huge impact as it concerns the title:

    “~I’ve became able to do anything with my Growth Cheat, but I can’t seem to get out of being jobless~”

    Should be: I`ve become (present perfect).

    Tks again =)

  23. jonathan duarte

    Great Novel so far

  24. Irina_Akashira

    Just for curious

    Has it some reason to missing last week’s chapter?

    • Sorry I traveled home during Chinese New Year so I didn’t have time to do the chapter. The next chapter will be up as scheduled this Friday.

  25. Shu Viole Ouma

    Can anyone tell me how old it Carol, Haru and Ichinojo are right now?

  26. HentaiAi

    I’ve read this novel on another site, so I never the illustrations. I was shocked at how the characters looked since in the past 6 months or so I’ve only been reading Chinese Web novels like Against the Gods, I Shall Seal the Heavens, and Martial God Asura. The way I imagined Haru, she was taller, long arms/legs, and looked more mature. Carol had straight hair and a dress almost Gothic . Now I have to reimagine the story as an anime.

  27. I do not know whether it’s just me or if
    everyone else encountering problems with your site.
    It appears like some of the text on your content are
    running off the screen. Can someone else please provide feedback and let me know if
    this is happening to them as well? This could
    be a problem with my browser because I’ve had this happen before.
    Appreciate it

  28. Assassinflood

    Miri-chan is too OP

  29. Eurydome

    Great work, have fun reading it!
    Just curious, this is a weekly release for new chapters right?

  30. Jaime

  32. F10

    Idk…. my NTR radar keeps going off…. And I’m scared (●﹏●)

  33. Someone you dont know

    Plz update, i’m addicting to this now

  34. Browser

    Why does the Invincible Saint ToC menu, lead here?

  35. Ko

    Will you be adding illustrations from vol 2-4 soon? It’s easier to imagine how they look like

  36. Khanz

    Can anybody tell me in which of the released chapter these siblings are gonna meet?.

  37. The Butt Wizard


    Before I say anything, please take my comment down if you think it’s too spoiler-y. I just absolutely had to pass this one by you.

    Since I don’t really know much about Japanese, wouldn’t the L in “Familis” become an R? Wouldn’t that change the middle two syllables in a rather ominous way?

    ANYWAY I just wanted to thank you for all your hard work. You are amazing and deserve to hear it said, whether you already know or not.

    If something comes your way Saturday, take that as a thank you from all of us, okay?

    • Yeah it does haha … I did change the letter to ‘r’ after realizing it but perhaps I missed out a few at the earlier chapters? :D Thanks for the encouragement!

      • The Butt Wizard

        I think you /might/ have, but that had nothing to do with what I was thinking at all.

        I mean, maybe it’s a coincidence.

        Then again, this author is one of the best plot-trolls I’ve ever seen, so who freaking knows at this point.

    • B0nd3n

      What do you mean i really wanna know

  38. Fanciful Unicorn

    Chapter 176 leads me to a 404 page from the table of contests. I can reach chapter 176 from the next button on chapter 175. Just thought I would let you know

  39. AnonyMOOOOOse

    Can there be please a PDF. I want to read these offline.

  40. Max

    Thanks ! I loved this LN ^^ !

  41. Scynder

    Does ANYONE know when Miri is finally going to catch up with him? I’m losing my mind waiting for their reunion. lol

  52. Rittu

    Loved this novel. But please can you make a fast release or patron system?

    • I do have donations and a Patreon page for extra chapters but how fast they get released is still subjected to my free time :X You can check the donations page on the title bar

  53. Ghalaghor

    We’re getting closer to the end of this novel…but I want to keep reading it.

  54. BlackSwordsman1721

    What happened to the recent chapters? I mean, all the chapters posted on the whole month of July. Why did they disappear? If I’m not mistaken, chapter 274 should be translated already.

  55. Pai

    Wait, is this WN translation or LN?

  56. Fujiwara

    Can you add a Character Introduction?
    I kinda forgot the people in the novel now (stacking chapters).


  57. squeegee103

    you should consider updating the table of contents for growth cheat when you get a chance.

  58. Saddadnowisdead

    Read all chapters that were translated to my native language, and asked myself a question: will i be able to understand the english version? But your translation gave me a clear answer to that. Yes, yes, and one more time YES.
