The Second Coming of Gluttony
August 13, 2019

Misleading tags.

While the story is plenty "emotional", I was lead to believe the MC is a smart, cautious individual.

In reality, He likes to put himself in basically every bad situation he can.

The author keeps saving MC using deus ex, basically pulling things out of his ass in order for the MC to live.

I will write about two scenarios where this happens:

... more>>
Spoiler
  1. The MC is on a commission where he is team leader. MC has innate ability to see danger, so he sees that the room they are about to enter is extremely dangerous (high possibility of dead). The MC suggests to leave and get a stronger individual, but team disagrees. result? he goes in with them. how he survives? he gets mad and unleashes power which is highly above his capability. really author? really??
  2. The kingdom sends individuals to destroy a facility, they fail miserably (almost every one is caught). The MC decides that the best course of action is for him to go try and save them.. let me remind you, the MC is considered the second weakest lvl in the world (basically a scrub). So he almost dies. how he survives? The author pulls a fast one from his ass and reminds us that there is actually some second hideout the MC can go to!

So let me ask you all, is he a cautious mc? nope. He is a retard, a gambler that bets on his plot armor.

[collapse]

Secondly, the MC is a wimp. He has many girls around him, many of which like him. But the result? he acts like a Japanese anime main character... he blushes and "doesn't understand why they do this". I personally hate MCs who act like this. Take it into consideration when reading the story.

Hope you enjoyed my rant. In summery: The story has a great premise, but author has decided to make a wimpy MC, and plot holes. which ruined it for me. <<less

I definitely recommend this story, well thought out and incredibly immersive.

Nevertheless, I find a few bad points to this one which makes it hard for me personally to continue reading.

  1. The MC is always weak. He never had a fight in which he won (at least for the last volumes) without getting incredibly injured. More reasons:
    Spoiler

    In this story there is a type of thing called evolution points, which can be used to gain new abilities like combat abilities, perception, mind and more. MC keeps putting everything to perception because he used to need it in the wilderness (to see danger first). That is incredibly stupid, because somehow every one can still find him when he hides, and it is much worse than actually being stronger and having more ability to defend himself. But the author keeps making the MC more perceptive.. But why? Maybe for future plot. But currently its a stupid choice

    [collapse]
  2. The MC keeps making bad decisions despite being called "smarter then regular human".
    Spoiler

    He goes to the middle of a battlefield because "instincs said so" and almost loses all his troops. He keeps fighting enemies he is not equipped to deal with (just find another war front.. Get stronger, and than go fight stronger enemies.. &Gt;<")

    [collapse]
  3. Spoiler

    Why does MC never collect battle spoils? Weaponry, tanks, even slaves (for manpower) ?
    he just keeps buying and in the author words "after selling everything from battle MC gets 600000yuan and afterwards buys wepons and utils 20 people and he is out of money."

    [collapse]
Anyway is it getting really frustrating at this point. If there is no change I will also drop this.

Hope it helped you decide whether to read it or not.

The Great Merchant in the Cataclysm

It started good, MC tries to do his best in his second play through.

Why did I rate it low?

First, because of unoriginality. There is basically almost nothing new, and the common jokes are all there. For example, jokes about MC being single, "how dare that guy have fun with woman X while I'm single and sad!"

... more>> Secondly, usage of plot devices to lower MC reward, or increase it. For example, MC beat 100 monsters, but some other monsters attac and he lost exactly 50% of loot.

Thirdly, the MC being common dense single character. He doesn't make any moves, doesn't show romantic interest. I bet in a couple of chapters the girl will like him and he probably wouldn't realize that.

Fourthly, The MC break character. The premise beings someone who survived for ten years, a hardened veteran. What would someone like that do when he has a chance? Maximize his advantage to survive of course. But when he meets random girl X, he decides to abandon his plan, risk himself and more, only so that she can follow him. Why not tell her to wait/work hard while he does what he needs to do? Someone like that shouldn't become the strongest/most accomplished/w.e... I seriously hope he dies because of that, Because he wasn't strong enough to face things when needed.

Anyway, for someone who only needs to shut off his brain, and read the common troupes, this might not be that bad. <<less
