At the start of the novel, the MC lives in a trash dump where food is scarce and even kids can kill for food. The MC finds some bread and hides, but a girl finds him and he out of compassion or kindness gives her a piece of the bread. The girl sells his location out to other kids for more of the MC's bread and takes part in brutalizing him. As the kids are on the verge of killing him a talent seeker of sorts saves the MC and gives him the chance to kill the girl.
Okay... he ends up not killing the girl and I can think of two reasons for it.
1.A continuation of his compassion from before. His home is a kid eat kid world, and MC may think that the kids' actions are normal and now that the MC is being taken away from this hell he might as well give this girl a chance to live.
2. The more likely reason is that the MC thought that showing compassion would make the talent seeker think higher upon him, since it would differentiate himself from the other denizens of the dump in what a young kid might regard as a positive way.
Another comment talked about how the MC followed orders blindly- like a soldier. Because... the MC... was a soldier at that point. Soldiers follow orders. Soldiers that don't follow orders are usually dead or traitors. Is being a soldier not enough of a reason for the MC to follow orders? Because the entire first arc revolves how the MC learns the hard way to follow orders by the letter.
Yet another comment regarded the killings of potentially innocent civilians in a vampire infested area as evil. The story clearly has a few paragraphs that actually give the reason for destroying cities that have had contact with vampires... vampires can blend into human society and some are virtually indistinguishable from humans. While it seems to be a crude solution, destroying an entire city to prevent a vampire outbreak has reasoning behind it.
his betrayal by the other continental champions. He had allies before, and he also will most likely find more allies in the future. He also never changes his clothes but he said that he felt most comfortable in his hobo clothes. I just want to know what direction the story will go in after he kills the Demon King.
A story about a man who lived life constantly striving to better himself, to train and to reach the heights no one else thought he could reach. A man who gave his life for humanity, but woke up to find a shattered world without the humans he had worked so hard to save. A man who is just waiting to die, along with the young girls he is placed in charge of. The story can't be said to have a good ending, but the man never stops trying.
There is not a lot of character development, and the end scene where the God gives the MC her heart back sounds pretty gruesome but it was still heartwarming. So yeah. 5/5.
