Spending a chapter lecturing a suitor on finding one person to love for life and about him not treasuring love if he can have multiple women, but I'm reading a harem novel so it all just sounds quite ironic to me. Or that she goes around leading on multiple guys even when she's in a relationship and reasons it with "I'm not a good woman". Then why are you with him? Where did the treasured feelings of love go?
She's always talking about women being independent and learns martial arts so she can protect herself considering she's engaging in a high risk job of seducing men without engaging with them. But, when it comes time to actually do her job, all of her protection measures are relying on men. Where did her martial arts go? Where are the throwing knives? Where's the poison? I don't understand why she says she should be prepared for when men aren't around and yet literally makes no preparation just in case none of her men are around. Absolute stupidity.
It was that whole scene, in fact, that turned me off the story entirely. Because she goes into a whole "woe is me" tirade about not understanding why she was raped in both lives and all that. And I'm just sitting there thinking, really? You LITERALLY sold your life for a year to the first guy, no boundaries, no rules, and no limits. At no point did she try to draw up a contract with him or bring up conditions or any of that. As for the second time, not a single one of the weapons/skills she'd developed to prevent the situation were actually used when they were meant to be. Other than crying and bringing up other men to dissuade the rapist, she did nothing before feeling sorry for herself. It's one thing if she were some random girl who was unexpectedly raped but she'd spent the last 49 chapters laying out what to do to prevent such a situation and ultimately did nothing. Where were all those thin knives she trained with? Why didn't she have at least one tucked away just in case her harem members were too busy to rescue her from danger?! I couldn't help but feel extremely disappointed with the story. The MC isn't forward thinking at all; she hides behind men just like the bland heroines in male centric stories, except our MC this time has more men to hide behind.
MC trains an entire afternoon to hold back and fails repeatedly, literally blowing goblin heads into oblivion, only to barely succeed (and then fail again against the goblin king). But he's all of a sudden able to hold back perfectly the next day, able to knock the adventurers out without any mention of the slightest difficulty.
immediately after leaving the forest he lived in due to a broken heart, he falls in love with someone else without sparing a thought to the childhood friend until he was heartbroken again. Seeing as it hit him hard enough to have run from home, shouldn't there have been some hesitation?
not only the #1 supermodel in the world, he's also concurrently the creator and chief designer for the #1 brand in the world. Seriously? He's so amazing he can design for 4 shows a year, never model or show his face, and yet still not be forgotten as the #1 model on a list that updates every 3 months? This author relies too much on suspension of disbelief.
I mean, seriously. Defeating a legendary beast at age 8 and then summoning a dragon immediately after and no one acts or treats him differently??? Lazy writing to say the least.
What is with the gym teacher/basketball game arc? Seriously. The guy goes from being a world renowned arms dealer to arguing with a teenager and acting tough in a club full of kids. It was literally painful to read this arc. Even worse, once the middle school level "drama" is resolved, the MC immediately quits being a teacher. Seriously, Author-san?? You couldn't have even pretended the arc was there for more than just to take up space?!
right after the MC quits his job as story filler - I mean gym teacher, he decides to go to Africa and start farming or some other useless shit. Wtf?!!! Are we even pretending the MC has a real goal at this point? It would be better to just have him sleep with everyone than to read about a bored middle aged man forcing a bunch of young, influential men to act like children playing in a sandbox.
waking up in a bed of naked men is probably a jarring situation, after all,
Case in point:
-evil step (half) sister #2 arranges for MC to be raped and killed for no reason other than the fact that her husband loves her. Is kidnapped, raped, given some STD, and killed. And, all of a sudden, the supporting male is some drug specialist who pretty much has medicine to do anything; a fact which never pops up again after this. Was there a point to any of this, then? Nope. sister #2 never had a chance in the first place.
-basically any scene involving the supporting male's sister. She's not a particularly likeable character, nor does she undergo any character development, or even impact the larger plot at hand. The secondary plots involving her are all so dramatic and don't seem to fit into the tone of the rest of the story. And, frankly, I just dislike her character.
I like the fact that the author didn't just send him back and say "game over". Instead, he's still got the mission of going around to worlds with his lover and collecting bits of him. It's also rather fun how they turn it into a game at the end.
he made up some bs name that just so happened to be the name of a famous Empyrean legend? Seriously??? Of the infinite possibilities of names?
