I feel really stupid for expecting something from this novel, I gave it a chance and it completely let me down.
Although I can give it 2 stars just because there are lots of chapters, meaning it can at least pass as a "filler" while waiting for latest chapters of my favorite novels.
Novels that could shorten your lifespan because of the "subpar" part or maybe extend it because of the "hilarious" part.
Heck, he even offended tens and hundreds of people (multiple families) at the same time and comes out alive. Worse part is, they are too one-dimensional, they exist just to annoy the MC and die later on.
"Oh, you MC f**ker, I'll kill you! I-Impossibruuuu! Nuuuuuu!" *dies*
Oh and it's been confirmed that at least one new villain will appear every 5 chapters, the MC, his friends, family, and lovers have the super power of attracting trouble wherever they go.
Oh he met a new friend while meeting a new villain! *poof* they die after 2 to 3 chapters because MC is stupid enough to always let a threat stay alive just to butcher them later on for "revenge".
After all, they are livestocks that should be butchered only once they're all fat and grown, am I right?
"Blabla-er, I've taken revenge for you, you can now rest in pepperonis and be forgotten forever since you only appeared for 3 chapters."
You don't believe me? Look at the reviews on the author's other novels, they all end up the same.. a crappy novel.
The things I pointed out are the same thing people didn't like about in his other novel.
Seems like the author goes "since I'm a typical chinese author, let's pull some nasty villains out of my nasty ass one after another because that's all my novels are about."
The thousands of chapters are all about MC meeting villains and kicking their asses, there isn't any good plot nor narrative.
Think of it like someone playing a fighting simulation game over and over with the same scenarios but different locations, and not getting bored of it.
"I gaze at the fountain of blue light gushing out from a black disk." these words were thrown out casually, but then you realized he's in outerspace and watching a quasar.
Everyone that discriminates against him gets facerolled by his OP-ness in a mere chapter or two, or even in a few paragraphs.
The MC does something and everyone gets awfully surprised just to accept it like it's normal after a few words.
"Calamity Class" monsters appearing in front of him just so that he can show to others that he's OP.
The MC met a demon and after a chapter he magically and omnipotently arrived at a conclusion that the way the weakest crest was called the strongest crest now and his crest was discriminated against (coincedentally and magically) as a disqualified crest and how the magic and everything the humans do became incredibly weak and subpar than his time was because of the Demons.
The Demons did that because it'll be better for them if the humans are weaker but let's be honest here. The discrimination shown in the story is not something that just appeared out of nowhere, it's something that is deep-rooted as said in the story, and he's even stronger than the knight's commander at his age, that means their country is too weak.
If they're that weak then it would've been so easy.. Too easy for demons to conquer them seeing as how that demon he fought has a higher magic output than him who could kill a "Calamity Class" monster.
I just don't understand the high ratings/review
So folks, stop giving a review without reading until you see how the story developed. I don't think the early chapters were written badly to warrant early bad reviews or any reviews at all.
This cycle happened numerous times already and I don't think I can continue reading this, knowing that it will still happen a thousand times more. After all I'm already chapter 811 and he's still level 39, only having finished his first class advancement. Imagine how many times this cycle would continue until he reaches 4rd class/order advancement like in his past life or the last 6th class/order advancement which is godhood.
His assets are also mostly only inside the game (and his in-game currency making power is high compared to top guilds), the only investment he made in reality was a studio that they already vacated and several game capsules, though he used quite a lot of expensive real life strengthening medicines already.
In the later chapters the author spent more than 5 chapters just about taking a bath in the MC's house. He even used a one month time skip in between and still continued his obsession about the bath.
No fighting, no story progression, and no skill acquisitions in a lot of chapters because he focused on useless things.
It is alright because it's a slice of life but like I said, taking the path of mediocrity when the novel has a lot of potential.
If the MC received affection so easily, he'll become uncomfortable and feel that such a thing is strange.
Yeah, "love" is a strong word so F those forced romance.
Many heroines might have fallen in love with the MC but he's not like those other MCs who quickly jump into s*xual carnage with the heroines.
He might be dense but that doesn't mean he's stupidly dense, this novel made me realize that denseness and stupidity doesn't always go hand in hand.
An MC who's brain isn't controlled by libido and not stupidly dense?
Dear lord, I'm glad they still exist.
It has been shown in this novel that villains have many forms.
An ally who will forsake or betray you for their own sake?
Sure, maybe that decision is the correct one, but don't expect to that your actions forgiven and/or forgotten, this fantasy novel isn't a fairytale after all, face the consequences of your actions.
Filler villains that are short-lived? Sure, but they are what they are. Unlike some novels out there where all villains feel like filler villains.
They do what they do so no need to keep makimg them pop out every single time or the MC will shout at you.
Ah sure, a selfish and ambitious guy appeared.. Did he hurt anyone? No. Did he offend anyone? No. Oh he harbored some selfish desires against the MC, but is it necessary to kill him for that? No no, let's just ignore him and hide away from trouble.
A strong ally was by MC's side at all times but then they joined those people who had forsaken him and held firm of their decision until the end. Did he keep pestering them to return? No. After hearing their answer, he respected their decision and became honorable opponents.
MC offended someone or someone offended him then they met again after a while in order to cooperate. Did they keep biting each other's ass and schemed against each other? No way. They are open-minded and doesn't have to keep making enemies unlike some novels out there, priorities please.
