In the beginning, I enjoyed this novel a lot. The way it was written made me think the main character was similar to Patrick from the earlier episodes of SpongeBob, acting like an idiot most of the times but when it really matters he'd say something casually that people would misunderstand and further enforce the idea of him being a genius, and it WAS like that, which made me happy but then it just went down hill. It was fun watching how others thought of him as some monster while he himself thought of himself as an ordinary child, in the beginning, it was fun watching him do stupid things that caused others to worry about the destruction of the world but sadly all good things must end. I was first disappointed when it was found out that Aikawa started dating Saitou, it's not like I hated it but it was more like it was quite abrupt, I mean I would have been fine if we at least had some development for the both of them first but nope, we are just told Saitou saved her with the power of mechanical cockroaches. Then there's Alice, maybe I accidentally skipped a chapter or 5 but I don't remember Kouki doing anything to suddenly receive the love of the girl, her background also seems to be a mess but I'm blaming that on the way this story is written so I won't go into that. Finally, the thing that made me drop this novel would be when Kouki got sent to another world and brought back a dragon egg... Like seriously, a dragon's egg. I thought this was supposed to be a sci-fi / modern day type novel, why the hell would you try to incorporate fantasy?! In the end, he even ends up traveling to the other world with an organization to escape earth, which I find is just more tiring then stupid. So in summary, the beginning it was funny then, later on, it became more confusing and tiring to read.
Like, later on, he has absorbed a humongous amount of books, and he has used some sort of golden page to assimilate the books that were in the library into his own knowledge. There has to be at least some common sense in those books, all that knowledge literally flew into your soul and became your own knowledge yet you still don't have any common sense. It's just frustrating.
