Both the main characters are transmigrators and we only get to know this at the end of the arc. Goddamnit! Give me (and the ML) back my tears! QAQ]
I like how the author provides explanation for that when ML confesses that the ten directions world actually emphasizes different sides of his character like jealousy, possessiveness etc. According to the need of the plot.
even though the protagonists didn't hook up in those 2 arcs. They helped to set the tone for the characters
As for the MC, upto ch 35 where I've left it in the MTL, he is still quite clueless about his emotions. The ML has a sudden epiphany though, after a certain type of dream he has regarding the MC... cough... smexy dreams... cough...
even before I'd known that Melba was Muriel, I'd already started shipping them together. And after reading the few chapters with Melba/Muriel's POV, I felt like they are the OTP. That's why I was extremely shocked and sad to Melba lose his memory and start falling for the MC of the original manga. My heart was bleeding!
Eugene, Oliver, Levin, Forte etc. Do they stay together? Get married? Who knows. We just get a few lines stating the marriage and happy life of Ricardo and Laurel. And this pairing was the weirdest for me since Ricardo seemed like an abusive person to me and I can't figure out why Laurel would fall for him. I guess it's another example of the author forcefully maintaining the original manga's pairing. I feel like the side characters were described well but abandoned in the end when the MC & ML get together.
Ch38 makes up for it though ;) since we get clues about the HE and ch 38 sort of seems like an epilogue for the whole novel.)
Normally, even if you're not the vengeful counterattacking MC, you would at least show some negative reaction after you've had rebirth. This MC seems to have taken things really smoothly-to the point that he's still a gullible innocent type MC. Moreover, he might have known the good points about the ML in the past, but in this life, it was his second time meeting the ML. How can he readily accept a confession and agree to stay with ML? Is this logical in any way at all?
I still liked the arcs where MC died and there was some angst between the two leads. I mean, I don't want the MC to die in the current arc like the previous ones, but this arc is a bit too fluffy compared to the other ones. (I guess I'm still ticked off that my ship sank in the 3rd arc... Poor Kaiser 😭😭) I just want to see some more angst where the MC struggles and finally gets over three near death situations and finally has a happy ending with ML. The ML is too pitiful anyways since he saw the MC die in front of him thrice already. Damnit! I'm a masochist! 😖😖😖)
the author's note in the TOC quite clearly statea that the system is the ML gong. As we read further, we realize that he's the MC's childhood friend+crush who has died in their original world. Some of the spoilers in the other reviewssay that he died to save MC from molestation and all but I can't comment on that till I've finished reading. He seems to be very caring about the MC despite losing his memories.
