Very entertaining story. It’s somewhat repetitive but it’s not done in a terrible way. The story is internally consistent but that internal consistency doesn’t often make sense to me. For example I’m not sure why lower ranking schools are so eager to send away talented students to better schools. Anyway the story is a good waste of time without anything terrible happening to ruin it. So basically one of my favorite stories on the site.

I don't have any problems with the MC being unreasonably unlucky because he's also unreasonably lucky... more>> at the same time. Might as well have it both ways. Besides if you have bad luck, flee into a cave, and find treasure then can that even be called bad luck? That's basically just the same kind of thing most MCs go through. <<less

Not nearly as bad as people are making it sound. Yes, the MC is stupid but the plot does a good job of mitigating that by forcing him into situations were he has to make decisions he doesn't want to in order to survive. In the end we get entertained regardless of the stupid MC.

Good things about the story. It's entertaining, it does justice to the apocalypse genre, and leaves you wanting to read more. It has RPG elements and Kingdom building elements.

Bad things about the story. It's repetitive, the MC is somewhat inconsistent in his statesmanship, and I think he ignores the most logical steps to rebuild the nation.

As for it being repetitive. How often do crowds really break out into riots where people try to rape, loot, and kill others during an invasion? That seems like the sort of thing... more>> restricted to the people invading.

It's bad to rape and murder people right? But if you do the slightest thing wrong as a woman you'll be thrown into the woman's camp and given away as a sex slave? You don't even need to actually do anything wrong yourself. If your relative does something wrong or if you're a servant and your master tries to sell you as a bribe you can also end up in such a situation.

Why has the MC not gone back to the novice village or at least checked to see if it's still there? The system villages seem to be some of the single greatest survival resources available to humanity and he hasn't even bothered getting his people to them. The effectiveness of combat troops with a class would skyrocket. Support jobs can be gained as well. Blacksmiths that can create system weapons, Doctors that can cure the infection, Beast Tamers that can domesticate useful mutant beasts, and perhaps Farmers who can fix the land to solve the food problem.

I don't generally have a problem with what's considered sexist in the story. The sexism makes sense. There's a reason why women aren't used in warfare and get a pass on the draft. Men are naturally more expendable because the rate of reproductive is capped by the number of women you have. Such a system probably would evolve in this situation. <<less
