arena the MC got a girlfriend and stopped being too serious about the arena things (though it was still enjoyable) but in this case the MC is just dumb. He was average (well he's a loner) in the first case and I thought I might see something like sovereign of judgement where choi hyuk has natural talent with his own ideals but no, the author makes the MC stupid (also the start where MC about his childhood feels the same as sovereign of judgment but in his case loner) , the MC says he thinks outside the box but buys sh*t then is like oh wait I can buy this sh*t instead it's better than doing this *buys more sh*t*, or in everyone else is a returnee where MC was average and a loner but the author made him op, underestimate himself and smarter instead of making him think he's smart when he isn't.
let's add in the future if you don't complete the stages set you'll die we're saving you from your impending death, with a mysterious realm which has your daily nesscessities to buy, with dungeons in the stages
the MC finds a jewel [like other novels] and will get op fast, like now the MC is a one of a kind born in the wasteland special type of person._. hopefully he doesn't become arrogant later on
72 demon lords like thing came in with dimensional battles
-Firstly the MC is very submissive of the girl he likes [his childhood friend] while he has lots of girls who'd love to be with him, even though they know the MC likes someone else they still wish to be by his side and still try. The MC rejects them all because of this so called childhood friend who he still loves over 20 years of not meeting [includes reincarnated time]. I find it very stupid of the MC as he'd begged his parents to go to the school of his childhood friend[this lead to his step sister hating him and his mother crying nearly everyday]. When after seeing his childhood friend with a boy he runs away then ends up dieing.-. Pretty stupid aye but its in the PLOT. Also there was like no chance of him every meeting his childhood friend but he still clings to that love which should've faded when mixing with Rio but no its in the PLOT after all.[main point why novel bad.][Though there are other points like Rios grandfather [king] who can't control his kingdom, telling people that his daughter loved the countries hero which is why they ran away when the other country asked for her hand as to peace keeping, and also why Rio always has to have problems saying like Haruto is trying to keep his hatred locked up, which is confusing at times when they're actually one being together]
-I like how the MC is faithful to his childhood friend at the start but after he meets all the other heroines and his childhood friend.I find her too plain and stupid for not realizing Haruto is Rio [even though she'd the idea] and Rio is stupid too for not telling her because he fears it, if he truly felt extreme love [as I'd read] he'd have told her the right time instead of writing it in letter format to her [heard from raw spoilers].
-I like how the novel has a balance of people who hate the MC and love the MC. Also how the MC is caring at time but only cold at the right time too.
-I like how the MC runs away but he comes back to it and how most of the characters and arcs have a nice peaceful feeling but some have a trill with excitement, though some are boring but when you pass em you know why they where there for.[Though some are also pointless :P but for enjoyment]
