The gods have wiped out several nations simply because they had some convenient inventions and as their latest whim completely wiped out the weaselkin empire in a gigantic explosion. The MC then goes to meet one of these gods to ask why they did it, basically acting as the representative of all humankind. When the MC asks for the reason, the gods say it's a secret and basically just flip the bird to the MC, sending him off to some stupid and pointless journey like a travelling circus. Seriously, if your reason to wiping out an entire country is a "secret", it practically doesn't exist and you're a homicidal maniac that needs to be eliminated ASAP before any more damage is caused. I don't care if knowing the secret leads to the destruction of the world, perhaps the humankind might be able to do something to it if they knew the reasons. The gods are idiots with completely stupid morals and the MC is even more stupid for obediently going according to their whim. It's nothing more than a convenient excuse to extend the story a bit since now the MC has to travel around doing quests for the same beings that caused one of his friends have her family murdered in front of her and enter slavery.
The love interest of the MC, the high elf Aze, appears out nowhere and suddenly somehow manages to do the impossible and win over the dense MC for no reason whatsoever. Seriously, the elven forest storyline was so confusing. People go in, MC is invited to some random place, some illusion stuff, some random awkward kiss happens as a result of a misunderstanding, someone blacks out, some conversations with a teacup with random content, some training happens and they're out. And somehow the only person the MC loves from then on despite being constantly surrounded by beauties is Aze. What the f**k happened? Did I just not read it properly? It's so creepy when the MC throws in some random "The only person I love is Aze" comments every now and then and I have no idea how the fck the MC could even be in love with the person. Why not with any other person in the story?
