It starts off well. After the MC wakes up with his hidden dimension, he wants to stock up and prepare for the apocalypse. Perfectly understandable since he knows his influence is not enough to change the future, he can only guarantee himself. What goes wrong after here is how he goes about it. To an average reborn citizen, running back and forth between small markets and cities is good plot development, for a rich young master with money to burn, it isn't. Especially when said young master can boast he can use his father's name to stock up on guns and even knows the police commissioner of a city he travels to. Running about buying one duck here, one fowl here, one this here makes no sense. He could simply have said he wanted to start an agric project or something to throw off suspicion and contacted wholesalers in different cities to satisfy his demands. The way he did things were even more attention grabbing to a young master's family. I'm surprised no one asked him whether the young master had gone mad especially since bodyguard s ideally are supposed to report the actions of their ward (mc) to their employer (MC's father)
Secondly, he had no designated plan on what to buy, when to buy, when to store, in what order to buy etc. He just wandered around and shopped as he wanted.
He lacks a general interest in how and why the apocalypse occured, the progress researchers made in the future, known zombie weaknesses, known future safehouses and towns, known supply routes. Overall at chapter 25, he lacked a general ambition to exert some measure of influence during the apocalypse and possibly bring it to a close. At ch, 25. I gave it 2 stars
When the MC and ML first meet, she denys that she was the one who r*ped him and took his virginity years earlier (still not sure how she managed to push down the powerful ml). In the early chapters, when her son was looking for his father, she told her son that his father would separate them, manipulating the child's emotions. She even hid the child under the bed when the ML visited and kissed him to distract him from the scent (which parent seduces a man with her child under the bed?). She drags her family hatred into her son's life and her son goes it to hurt people with the writer selling it as meng
Finally, I'd like to believe what made the MC get reborn was an ability, either his or the child's but that's just me anyway.
That's not our MC because her misunderstood-as-evil cousin/sister who died in the transmigrator's revenge mess gets reborn. So she turns things around, marries another prince, cuts off the evil transmigrator's head, who took the place of her sister and hetrayed their family, and voila! A good ending.
But no, this is just the second paragraph of the first chapter so how can things end easily?
Here arrives our MC, in the body of person not fairly as interesting as the upper two because honestly my head was spinning so much I doubted if it was really the MC this time.
She is the first love of the reborn girl's golden thigh. Yes, the same golden thigh prince who she 8s supposed to, in her own storyline, marry, use to fight herfaoe transmigrator sister and her prince husband, then be victorious, behead them and become empress herselhlf.
Stay with me now, don't get confused, this is only the first chapter.
Now, our actual MC is the first love of the reborn girl's target prince. She is, behold, not a transmigrator, nor a reborn person, but a world-hopper on a mission!
Phew, it feels like a migraine packed in a box.
After this, a no name doctor character, pops up but I don't know his use, the MC's brother, with a severe sister complex, pops out. Then... Yeah the chatters are moving at this time.
Well I couldn't related with the MC after so many switches at first. Her reactins, I couldn't understand, like her calling her brother cruel and cursing him in her heart when they first met. Sigh...
Honestly I wish the first arc were simpler to ease us in.
As I read the first arc, I couldn't decide whether to jump to another arc or to another book.
The cycle of dying and returning was a good twist that just made my heart clench all the more. The only draw back was that he got less and less spontaneous or independent as a character. By the third return, almost a third of it was the MC paralysed on a bed, more fluff and less plot at this point.
But the author totally redeems this on the last arc with a fresh, adventurous twist in the MC.
Totally worth the time spent reading it
Too bad he is out of action now. He was such a scum, it was disgustingly loveable.
One time they are acting on set, the next thing, the MC's mushroom ability starts tearing into a black smoke (I'm not even sure how it appeared), and then it pulls out a corpse, then a bunch of words. A chapter later, we can deduce the course of events, that the corpse actually levitated for a few seconds before it fell, and confusingly, the black smoke is actually the border to the abandoned world that opened there. If the characters discover this along with me (the reader) there is no problem, but the characters know and the description doesn't apply explain it, so there is a feeling of being left behind.
