She has shoulder-length silvery white hair, and her red eyes are enchantingly..... arg anyways she has pretty eyes too, and..... her brows are, um..... screw this, I give up, she is pretty
"Heeh~, do I look like a guy who would wag his tail for money?"
So I say while crawling on the ground and carefully picking up the gold coins piece by piece.
"Yes you do."
"You've got a good eye."
When his friend is condemned to death the MC offers compensation to spare her life (using something valuable that he just doesnt need anymore), then goes and kills the one who caused it all because he is already passing by the zone as he reaches his new destination
Then he completely ignores a little girl because she is not his friend nor can she give him any benefit
When in the middle of a war the MC finds an old friend in a position beneath him the MC gives him some resources and keeps him away from the battlefield
Later he trains a guy out of boredom and kills him once he realizes the guy can be useful dead
Then he becomes the savior of mankind because it benefits him... and everyone is praising him because of that
In the first part of the story we have the MC joining forces with a group of people to increase their chances to obtain their objective but all of them knew that if the loot was not enough only one could take it so they cooperate while getting ready to backstab each other, the reaction of the MC was pretty amusing because everyone believed him to be the weakest among the group and he only won because the other people spent their trump cards against each other but if they had to face one on one the MC would have been killed or at least severely wounded, he only won because he made his opponents underestimate him
After chapter 300 the MC creates his own "legacies" and hands them to youngsters in need of power who then become typical xianxia MCs who gain fame and are ambitious, the MC monitors them to gather information about the various techniques and treasures they encounter and also to monitor the political situation in the area
The thing that made me drop the story was the rice, the village was deprived of their adults, recruited by the local lord and now only children and the elderly remain, and they are starving
Then of course, here comes the rice to the rescue, the MC finds a patch of wild rice growing next to the village and teaches people to eat it, which they didn't because they believed it was poisonous
The fact that people had a cereal growing next to themselves and still starving is weird because even if they believed to be poisonous they just had to look at animals eating the rice to realize it was actually edible and they are supposed to have hunters so looking at the behavior of animals is a given, for example, when I was in my hometown and herded sheep I noticed that those whooly ****ers never eat the belladonna, a hallucinogen plant but they were adamant on going out of their way to chew on any edible plant, all of them which could also be eaten by humans, how can you not notice that rice is edible if you have animals?
But it gets worse when we are told about how they harvested it and there was enough rice to feed the whole village for a year...
They were starving next to a ****ing mountain of food, that's how stupid that people is, the only comparable case I ever saw like that was in Space Odyssey where the ancient cavemen were starving because they had not realized they could kill animals and eat them
So, the people of this isekai are as stupid as the cavemen from better stories
There are plenty of clichés like rescuing and helping a second royal take the throne from their evil and more capable relative but the MC instead chooses to ignore the problem (or outright kill the second royal) because having a civil war for the succession is not worthy for the commoners, who will see little change in their lives being ruled by one or another anyway
The demi humans are causing problems on the frontier?
You could go and be a lovely hero and solve all the problems in a long journey to bring both species closer while the main conflict intensifies and both sides lose people, or you could seize the country, make the king a puppet ruler and bring an army to execute a decapitation strike against the other party, thus ending the conflict in a week, minimal loses and a demi human waifu who now hates you (but meh, never stick it in crazy anyways)
You found clues to a secret side quest that could stop a war?
**** it, is not my business and the war can be stopped faster by killing the rulers and having the more reasonable successor take over
Your reputation took a hit?
You can spend a year or two, or ten doing side quests to help children recover their pets or fix old ladies´roofs, or you could subdue some special forces, transform them into your own intelligence agency and have them spread good rumors about your graceful and handsome person
she finally starts investigating her and finding her very dirty, very spooky skeletons, you know, the stuff that would have been priceless info when the MC was harassing her
she could trade up from the second prince to the first prince, I mean, we cant have our female MC settle for anything less than the future king, amirite?
its also very amusing how the story pretends its a mystery when introducing the prince as a regular underling... an extremely intelligent, extremely handsome and extremely strong underling with a mysterious past, yeah, thats why I called him totally-not-first-prince the second he showed up
The MC is legally cornered and gives a speech of how she has to be strong because even if she is weak that doesn't mean a prince on a white horse will come to her rescue... AND SHE IS TELLING THIS TO THE PRINCE THAT CAME TO DELIVER THE LAST PIECE NEEDED FOR HER RESCUE... did he arrive on a black horse? or maybe by carriage?
The dungeon can only be explored in one way using the regular doors, people can go further but they cannot go back but by still unknown means they have set a network to teleport stuff from upper floors to lower ones and the MC finds some facilities intended to produce stuff for the front liners... like homunculy s*x slaves, food and homunculy farmed specifically to be killed and provide experience points
Yep, because the front liners are so strong and have lived for so long they became mad with power (and some others are just regular mad) and have created a society focused on clearing the dungeon above everything else, people can only settle in a safe floor or keep going on eternally and this have made them go completely nuts
Even gods are unable to get people exit the dungeon so even with their insane powers they are stuck going down and down
The MC has he ability to collect up to ten skills from his defeated enemies, this is a very rare ability on the world but it seems like inside the dungeon all the strong people have the same ability or something similar, or it would be more precise to say that only people with the ability to collect skills can become OP among the OP so even if the MC seems special at the beginning he becomes a random mob once he enters the dungeon
There is someone with a skill to interfere with physic laws which can give teleport or limited time reversal as the revealed effects so far, compared to that stuff like defenseX2 is really lame and there are hints of even more broken people on the deepest floors
The translation has some flaws but is easy to see that some of them were carried from the original writing, the episodic nature of the story is more "monster of the week" than a proper adventure but it helps to avoid some plot holes than may appear if things get too complex because the author really is weak at establishing the atmosphere of a setting and just throws the MC into new stuff and right to the action
Also when the MC realizes something he forcefully hides his deductions from the audience to reveal them in the climax and this also could be seen when the author forcefully hid the identity of someone while explicitly saying was someone the MC could recognize, both author and MC just point at stuff and say "Hey look! something interesting for later but I'm only telling you is interesting to keep you reading until the reveal!" which is kind of clumsy but when the episode ends it doesn't really matters anymore so its fine
The childhood friend just decides to sacrifice the MC instead of sacrificing a bully to have the MC take his skills, I think that betraying a bad person should be way easier than betraying a close friend, right? they even had two years to think so its not like a sudden development
When the MC fights an army of cockroaches and lowers his guard getting close to kill one with his knife when he could use his gun as he is in danger of being swarmed all the time, this clearly was a way to get him in a pinch to have the mysterious character save him, the problem is that there were plenty of other moments that could have done the trick better than plain carelessness in the face of a bug army
There was this time when the story clearly says the MC looted all the tools from a small village but later he and other guy have to dig using a sword because they got no shovels
When the MC instantly agreed to help a guy in a dangerous near lethal mission he had no need to do as he could literally walk away into the next floor without having to face anyone, also he believed the guy just because he seemed nice without informing himself about the other side of the story, and we are talking about a betrayed MC who just before kept doubting a town when they explained their problems
The ability Appraisal Eyes cant appraise humans and later the MC is appraised with it; granted, it could also mean he is no longer human
And is later revealed that he is planning to save the world while doing so
The MC is level 1 and has never been able to level up despite years of training and monster killing, which makes everyone think he is already at his limit cap
Yep, totally sucks
His old family dumped him because he was too weak to survive on their OP island that fends off the monsters, his ex-fiance advised him to give up on fighting and live as a regular person as not to get himself killed, and he just wants to be recognized by those people
Then there is another group who tried to kill him, then denied responsibility, then got away with it because of their status, those he wants to kill or humiliate as much as possible
This is the line he draws, for those who humiliated him or were mean to him he just is a **** in return but for those who tried to kill him he wants to kill
