This is a dumb yet immensely enjoyable series.

The premise is as follows: Yu IlHan, a Korean university student, gets left behind when everyone else gets "raptured" into different worlds. To make up to him, Heaven (or rather, an organization of transcendent beings calling themselves Heaven's Army) dispatches an angel to help him out. As she explains, there are countless worlds in the multiverse that "level up" by going through cataclysms. During a cataclysm, native animals mutate into monsters, people get to use mana, and they also get access to the... more>> Akashic Records, manifesting in RPG style status panels, jobs and skills. Since Earth was about to go through its first cataclysm, the God of Heaven's Army transports humans onto other worlds for 10 years to learn how to use mana, but since the protagonist is left behind, he decides to learn martial arts and train in his own way until humanity returns. Unfortunately, because of a strange case of time-dilatation that no one can explain, the 10 years turn into 1000, during which the protagonist keeps compulsively learning martial arts, crafting, dismantling and everything else he can in order to keep his sanity, so when humanity finally returns, he starts out with a ridiculous stat- and skill-advantage that just gets more and more insane as the story goes on.

Now then, what is the main draw of this work?

Is it the plot? No, not really. There isn't much of a plot to speak of, to be honest. Instead the story proceeds through separate arcs, with a cold war between the transcendent beings serving as a loose thread that connects all the crazy events the protagonist gets involved in.

Is it the characters? No, not really. The protagonist is not particularly well-written (he is over 1000 years old, yet he still acts like a teenager and he is so dense that he is unable to even recognize that multiple women are pursuing him, even though he knew one of them for the aforementioned 1000 years, aware of the second being a tsundere, and the third going through the entire gamut of awkward novel romance tropes even though he uses the same tropes to "predict the future" all the time). The side-characters are also lukewarm at most. We have the lovestruck angel who is signaling harder than an air-control tower yet gets ignored all the time, the tsundere angel who usually serves as the straight-woman complaining about the protagonist's weirdness, the super-beautiful and super-talented human girl (who was supposed to be the main love-interest, but got overtaken by the popularity of the angels) and... honestly, that's about it. There are a couple of other characters, but they are mostly just simple ones with one or two traits who only exist to pad out the cast.

Is it the writing? No, not really. The comedy is very peculiar and full of random fourth-wall breaking meta-humor (such as the angels reading the protagonist's thoughts by reading the actual lines, or him predicting the future by pinpointing foreshadowings, such as that him gaining a spear that is designed against dragons meaning he would have to soon fight one), and at best I would say it is tolerable. At least I have never found myself smiling, let alone laughing. The character-interactions are also mostly subordinated to the classic tsukkomi-routine, and the entire works becomes fairly repetitive in this regard from very early on.

Is it the fight-scenes? Well, sorta, but not quite. The combat is definitely not bad, but not in a "sitting-on-the-edge-of-your-seat", "you-are-worried-for-the-survivial-of-the-characters" kind of way. In fact, most of the enjoyment in the fight scenes comes from the creative ways the protagonist combines various powers and artifacts for insane results, such as using a magical bag-of-holding, jumping high into the air with a skill, using an atlatl to fire his spear at a dragon below, transfer the weight of his bag onto the spear with a skill mid-flight, hit the dragon, then recall the spear with a different skill, transfer the weight to his boots instead, stomp on the dragon on landing, and then stab it again with the freshly retrieved spear. And with that we actually reached the actual reason I liked reading this work:

The power-up cycle. In fact, you might as well call this "Power-up-cycle, the story." Each arc works like this: Protagonist gets a lot of materials -> He uses his amazing crafting skills to make/upgrade his equipment -> He fights enemies that are way out of his league using his OP equipment -> He gets really powerful skills/combinations/jobs/titles -> He beats even stronger enemies -> He gets even better materials -> Back to step 1

Now, if you are annoyed by this kind of repetitiveness, then this is really not a story for you. However, if you enjoy watching a main character getting better at a steady (if breakneck) pace while also reading some entertaining (if shallow) character interactions and consistent (if not particularly deep) metaphysics, this will scratch that itch for you. <<less

In terms of technicality, this novel is far from the best. Honestly, it's your typical "bland antisocial MC who somehow managed to cheat his way out of the system" novel.

Yet it captivated me. The premise where the world itself levels up managed to grab my attention but what managed to make me stay was the author's consistency with the way he develops the system of the world he is creating unlike other authors who constantly asspulls new systems without proper background leading to it. Props to the translators too for... more>> doing a very good job.

On the downside, the majority of the supporting characters lack serious developments. They just aren't interesting enough for me to care about them although they do get their spotlight once in a while but I'm sure I won't feel anything for them when something bad happens. The author's comedy need some time to get used to but I guess it differs for everyone. I sometimes cringe with his forced comedic anime references.

I rate this highly due to the fact that I'm just a sucker for very good game-like world systems and OP MCs. This somehow reminds me of Rise of the Shield hero which I highly recommend too. For readers that do not like OP MCs, this novel will disappoint you since the MC never truly had a moment where he gets beaten down one-sidedly. But to those who enjoy well crafted novels where the author knows what he is doing, then I believe that you will enjoy this. <<less

Translator here.

Let me clarify a few things.

This is so much like a JP novel (with wimpy MC, harem, etc)
YES. IT IS LIKE A JP NOVEL. We see references to JP anime/novels/manga from time to time and from that, we see that the author was influenced by JP culture when writing his novels.

... more>> MC is too OP.
Yes, but he gets just as much life-threatening (and rather interesting) situations that fit him.

Too much filler
NO, IT F**KING ISN'T. Crafting? That takes less than an entire chapter. UNLIKE CN NOVELS WHICH HAS SAME STUFF HAPPENING AGAIN AND AGAIN, JUST ON A BIGGER SCALE (e.g. intra-family competition, inter-clan competition, national competition, international competition. sect competition)

MC has no personality
Well, try living in solitude for a millennium and see what happens to you. (Lita was NOT with him 24/7)

The pretext sounds like nonsense
(MC being left alone, God not being able to notice him, etc)
I don't know how to make spoilers here so read at your own risk.
Spoiler

Do you really think he became a dropout due to that? REVEALED PLOT ISN'T ALWAYS THE TRUTH.

[collapse]

The girls always seem to fall for the MC for no particular reason at all.
Isn't this the case with most asian novels? I don't know how girls think, much less know how they fall in love (Do you?) so I can't really clarify, but yes I agree with this statement.

Comedy breaks the mood.
At the core, this novel is a COMEDY novel, with ACTION AS SIDE ELEMENTS. So, I advise you to read something else if you don't like comedy. I'm doing my best to translate all the jokes into English, but most of the time, the same references aren't commonly known in English. But there are references that are commonly known in both Korean and English. (Such as Haganai's 'What was that?(Nadatte?)') But for most others, I wouldn't be able to translate them perfectly. <<less

The idea behind this book is great however it fails to deliver. The premise reminds me of onepunch man, sadly however the lightheartded way in which this nove treats itselfl is what kills it. For a apocolytic themed novel theres very little tension or suspense going on. That and the OPness of the mc makes the story even more bland and predictable. At least with its spiritual predecessor OnePunchMan the humour was there, when this story attempt to do it however it ends of rather flat... like a... more>> stale soda- full of promise, but ultimately a fizzless abomination of what could have been.

The translator is also in need of an editor or two in order to make the sentence structure flow better. Honestly though this story reminds me of something medicore I would find on royalroadl -overhyped, one dimensional, and stereotypical.

This is neither the greatest or worst thing I've read thus far on NU. You'll either love this or hate it since it is very similiar to Onepunch man. The key to reading this novel is to just not take this novel to seriously. <<less

What is the best novel that is comparable to the level of Bringing farm to other world or the Awakening?

The answer is Everyone else is a returnee but better! Maybe on the same level as tales of gods and devil

My own summary:
Everyone else in Earth is sent to otherworld to 'train' for the upcoming disaster 'mana' upheaval, buuuuuuuuut Mc's name was unfound by the god so he was left alone in the world filled with 'mana beasts'... So god being benevolent enough granted him status and some power so... more>> that he can train here for 10 years... and he won't age.

What I want the novel to be like and most likely it will:
Soo what I'm saying is most likely MC will be op asf when everyone come back from their 'trip to otherworld', and the people who came back from 'the trip' would think they are invincible asf buuuuut here goes MCC rekting their ass off <<less

I have to admit that I'm a sucker for these kinds of novels (weak to strong, rpg elements, post-apocalyptic world, fantasy elements, etc.) and I will also admit that despite my low rating I did enjoy reading this novel due to my bias. Is it a good binge read if you're into all the above and don't mind if it's good for you or not? Sure, you'd probably enjoy it if that were the case.

However it should be noted that the novel, despite having a tinge of originality amongst its... more>> peers in the genre, is terribly unpolished. It reads like a rough draft that someone might whip up in a moment of inspiration. Things just aren't fleshed out or well thought through, the basic ideas and premise are there, so it still somewhat works as a story, but the story in its current state is in a bad need of fine tuning.

Just a few things I noticed:

Spoiler

Supposedly the 'monsters' are immune to the original rules of the world (physics) in that they are supposed to be immune to human innovation and science, being the fantasy creatures that they are. They even explicitly state that not even nuclear weapons would be good enough to stop them. However, the MC builds a pile-bunker (well within the reaches of human understanding/knowledge/physics might i add, nothing magical about a damn pile bunker) and uses it to easily squash and one-shot high-leveled mobs

[collapse]

Spoiler

MC spends only 250 years to read every single book in the world. On top of this he traveled to every country in the world and just about learned every single language. You have to consider that, even if this was possible, you'd have to be some kind of freakishly fast speed runner with a perfect memory and a incredibly powerful comprehension (i.e. you basically have to be a genius). Despite this though, the MC still acts somewhat braindead at times and you often question how smart he really is.

What's also hilarious is that he spends an additional 50-100 years learning how to be a blacksmith, because apparently forging swords trumps nukes. And apparently, learning how to become a master blacksmith takes a quarter of the time it would take to learn all the languages, read the books of, and visit the countries of the world.

[collapse]

Spoiler

There is no explanation, or hints about why the MC was left behind and thus unable to learn how to control mana. There is no explanation why the angel that visited him could not teach him mana control in his own world, or why building up his body when even nuclear weapons supposedly won't work against these mobs, what is a karate chop or a round house going to help? Basically the MC memed his way into becoming a proverbial Chuck Norris and now somehow he can compete with people that have powers that allow them to surpass nuclear weapons (checkmate, Gandhi).

[collapse]

The list goes on and on, but these are just a few for the record.

Did I enjoy binge reading this novel? For the most part, yes, though I did have to somewhat turn my brain off.

Is the novel bad? Unpolished? Not fully fleshed out? Yes, unfortunately it is. <<less

The fact that it's much more popular than WOC, AWE and BTD is scary.

Apparently the author was really impressed by reincarnator and decided to write his own version (with a touch of invincible saint salaryman, which is a poor choice), unfortunately his own version is really bland and not emotionally involving.

The first couple of chapters are boring and childish, completely lacking depth. Meaningless things get lengthy explanations, but important ones with potential of proper buildup are skipped almost completely. Every single element of the story seems to be a parody... more>> of itself. The quality of translation sometimes becomes intolerably bad as well.

This here is so unimaginative that I feel empty after reading several chapters.

I'd rate it 1.5 due to bits and pieces of original content tho. <<less

An inconsistent story that lacks direction, populated with characters that are barely interesting, and filled with forgettable adventures. It just makes lots of noise that just becomes wearisome the further it goes.

An abundance of plot holes and unexplained materials, combined with randomness of events makes for a story that lacks momentum. You can't feel that something big is in the horizon that the story is heading to but instead we got these random unconnected shenanigans that doesn't really pay off. Most just doesn't make sense nor do they provide developments... more>> to the story or character. Things just happen without any reason.

The characters have some interesting qualities, but they also contains qualities that ruins them. The protagonist for example. He is said to be very strong, reads all the books in the world, learns variety of languages, learns a lot of skill and even got help from angels. But he is also very dumb with very shallow aspirations and pretty much only interested on his own well being. The characters just doesn't have much to offer to the story.

And the setting is really inconsistent and underutilized. Adventure is out there, but our protagonist lock himself in his workshop. Really? There are monsters to face, powerful people to meet, crisis to solve but out protagonist is occupied with his hobbies?

And when the protagonist do comes out looking for adventures, random stuff would appear. So random in fact that the angels, that must be totally bored being stuck with him, has to constantly explain whatever the heck they are encountering now. Every time our protagonist walks out, the angels will spout exposition for anything to make any form of sense. Without the exposition, the setting is more illogical and random than Wonderland from Alice in Wonderland.

This is just some incoherent random piece of work. The author might literally just be writing what comes to mind to come up with something as garbled as this. <<less

Readers are really missing out if they complain that the MC is too OP.

The thing is, the MC is aware of his growth, and every time he gets more powerful, it is only because things will get more difficult... and he calls this phenomena out.

In fact, the world is getting harder, faster, matching the MC, while actually leaving the normal people behind a little. This is the MC's struggle, to help the people struggle through this overwhelming challenge.

I dont see how this story got so many 5 stars. The MC was leave on Earth alone for a long time and he practiced to be OP in every way. He turned workaholic as well, cant live without grinding. The story has no objective yet, as of c23. the MC personality turned very bland after time resume. He only does what the angle say, apparently another grinding quest.

Edit: OP harem no plot, A story of one-hit-kill protagonist that can predict the future. This sound like Moonlight Sculptor, a story... more>> that bound to fail later on because of zero plot. <<less

People are giving this way too much credit just because its slightly different from other novels on the site. Different doesn't always make something better.

I'm giving it 2 stars rather than 1 because the idea of the novel was good, but the author has (at least so far) failed to deliver on the idea. The characters are just way too bland, I'm sorry. Usually AT LEAST the MC has some depth to him but in this novel the weapons have more depth than the MC, much less the side characters.... more>>

People give a lot of novels shit for being childish - and this novel also has that flaw in a HUGE way, so I don't understand why the ratings are so positive. There is no depth, just a story about showing off in one way or another. <<less

Supremely Entertaining.

Recently, I've been wondering... why the Monkey/Girl's Back image for Kobato-Chan Daisuki? It just makes me giggle. It also makes me giggle that there are so many bad reviews for this series. xD

Grammar: 4/5 (Formerly 3.5/5 as of Chapter 143, marked improvement from previous chapters.)

... more>> Story: 4.7/5

Writing: 4.5/5

(Update as of Chapter 158: Still the same rating, a couple awkward wording instance, but nothing that detracts from the flow of the story.)

(Update as of Chapter 146: Marked improvement of grammar. Story is still as exciting as ever.)

(Update as of Chapter 143: While grammar is starting a slow downhill decent, the story is snowballing in all the right ways. As previously stated, this is supremely entertaining.)

(Update as of Chapter 138: Getting a tad bit more exciting, which means pretty damn exciting.)

(Update as of Chapter 125: Somehow they still keep the pacing perfectly, ratings and feelings still the same as my previous assessment done for Chapter 76.)

(update as of Chapter 76: Still my favorite series on NU. Still going strong.)

(Update as of Chapter 72: Some grammar issues reappearing, nothing major, and it's understandable seeing as the Translator was rushing to get more chapters in before taking a hiatus for College Exams. Work much appreciated, will keep the 4.5/5 for Grammar until after seeing the quality of translation available after the translators' return.)

(Update as of Chapter 70: Yup, still golden. Rereading this for a third time, and I'm really glad that he quality of the translation has improved by leaps-and-bounds.)

(Update as of Chapter 66: Noticed a rather smooth use of the English language for most parts of the recent chapters. The only issue would have to be with translating proverbs, which has always proven to be tricky since they are culturally contextual. Over all, I would like to applaud the translation team on the extremely great work they are providing. P.S. Noticed some people calling the story inconsistent (there are indeed some inconsistencies) and the characters bland (as with almost any written work they utilize stereotypes that are entertaining). Alas, not everyone reads the story the same way. Sometimes the story just doesn't get through the same way to everyone. I pretty much blame this just on Verbal Context differences between communities/countries/cultures. Might be wrong and this is just not those peoples' cup-o-tea, but nothing can make absolutely everyone happy, not even happiness itself.)

(Update as of Chapter 60: No change to my ratings from before. The story is growing nicely. Oh Goddess Sunbutt, please grace me with more chapters, pronto.)

Another gem on a site that contains an almost infinite amount of waste. I've only now noticed a trend where Korean Novels seem to have an almost entirely different standard of quality as opposed to the generic XianXia you will find copy-pasted under another author's name.

Grammar-wise is isn't anything spectacular but the mistakes made are not difficult to bear (improves after the switch from "N&C" to "Kobato-Chan"). The intermittent awkward wording/phrasing is easily negligible thanks to a superb story and story-telling form. The story itself is a very pleasant and comedic telling of a rather over done genre given life through a fresh set of eyes (The one who got left behind). The writing is fairly well done, I praise the author and the translation group for being as consistent as possible and using some rather comedic plays on situations.

All in all, this is very easily becoming one of my favorite series and I look forward to binge reading this. <<less

5/5 stars for this novel.

As of chapter 18 (current chapter), this is one of the better novels I've read on here. I love the feelings and sympathy towards the MC that I get while reading this novel. I recommend this to people who are looking for a loner type MC who impresses everyone with his hard work. As well as RPG type world with interesting plot.

I can't think of a way to make this any better other than having more chapters out faster than they already are. ^^

The biggest misconception about this novel is the seriousness. Its just a parody. The novel dont give itself too much credit, and even jokes with movies, games and things like that. It looks like the only person that has some reasoning is the MC, the other people just never saw a movie or played a game, and he appoints it making comparisons and saying things like:

"Well, now that you said that is impossible to a boss to appear, a boss will definitely appear, and it will be soon!".

Its all an... more>> inside joke. Just look how he was "forgotten by god itself", and how goddamn OP he becomes. It is just an allusion to how other series are too serious about the crazy stuff the MC does. In this novel, he just do it! And thats the fun of it. Everything is fast paced because he is so, really, soooooo superior to everyone else, that he needs to deal with things that no one else can handle. Everyone is hunting wolves and he is killing dragons. He is the genius that geniuses cant reach. In level? Maybe they come close, but all his abilities and equipments are just too much. And dont forget, all his accomplishments have a explaining, and the beggining explains a lot.

Think about Onepunch man, gintama, deadpool, and things like that. Or novels like A Will Eternal (A thought through eternity). Its quite funny, and the action and proportion things end up are really good and exciting.

And a lot of development is happening in the characters. The autor seems to have prepared a lot in this novel.

(Don't think that everything is comedy and that is just jokes all around, it just looks like a crazy parody levelling up korean novel, and is quite good.) <<less

With the high ranking this novel had, I had high expectations, but ultimately found this to be pretty disappointing. There's a somewhat interesting intro, which quickly devolves into a repetitive powering up loop with zero tension. Characters are shallow, mc is dense and uninteresting the story jumps all over the place. There is some good humor here at least, but even that gets lost sometimes with the inconsistent quality of the translation. (Or maybe the original text is just as bad?) If you're looking for... more>> something light and somewhat funny with little substance, this might be for you, otherwise I'd skip this one. <<less

Entire story is just angels going "wow the MC is so amazing doing exactly what we told him to do".

- Why was MC left behind while EVERYONE ELSE ON EARTH got teleported? Never explained. The most probable explanation is that it's a joke by God, or something dumb like that.

- 1000 years of boredom. 17 chapters of RPG-style MC grinding combat and smithing skills. After all the humans return, one brief insignificant conversation with his parents (who he did not see for 1000 years) later, he starts hunting... more>> monsters and making dungeons and other grindy stuff again. Nothing exciting is ever shown, it's just "MC grinded for 1000 years, now he is super duper strong". Tell tell tell, never show.

Honestly this feels like reading about some kid playing a boring grindy RPG. The only 2 characters present in the story are the MC and his angel, and neither are interesting or exciting to watch. MC is just a boring standard student guy who just follows along with whatever the angel tells him to do, and the angel is just some boring robot-like agent who tells him to do this and that as God orders. Very boring. <<less

I like it a lot.

When I think about this novel it reminds me Saitama from One punch man. ( I like it that manga very much ). Overwhelming physical strength, a lot of training. Clumsiness, awkwardness in the nice way. Very heartwarming novel so far.

Give it a try. It should amuse you enough and you'll be starving to read more.

Disappointing. For all the reasons those 1 & 2 star reviews said, and also because the MC seems like a schizo to me. The first 3 chapters were hard to get through and just when I thought I had shut off my brain enough to enjoy this story, I finally couldn't take the MC's fluctuating moods/thoughts.

Korea seems to have a real problem making quality fantasy novels, but it might just be that too few are featured here, and those that are picked up are meh.

Meh, like others have stated, this novel seemed to be overhyped. I think this novel is currently on the top 5 in the rankings here in novelupdates. (Sometimes I don't get how the novels are ranked here on this site, for I actually disagree with the order, especially with the top 2 being TDG and ATG).

The novel itself seemed to have a good premise, but the actual story seemed a bit bland and boring for my taste. The character is just OP in everything, without even actually having to struggle... more>> or try hard. The story flow for me, has no real hook, and is more like a slice of life than that of an action story.

I don't see any real urgency or benefits to the MC's actions, it's just like a grinding advancement, for no real purpose. The comedy in the story is a bit bland for my taste as well, and the character interaction is something that I just mostly want to skip.

I mean it's not that horrible, but it's not really good as well. So I guess if you're bored, it's something you can read. However, it's really a far cry to "must read" novel that others have described it as. In my opinion, it's just on the mediocre side. <<less

Most overrated novel on nu. Generic as it is, overhyped. So little chapters and 5 stars holyshit. Think of sao, attack on titan, etc. Decent beginning then slowly just dies.

Not saying it's bad just too early to judge.
