Pure Love ✕ Insult Complex
September 19, 2016
Status: c5
1300+ chapters since 2011... the chapters aren't even short. Just how does someone write this kind of story for so long? What does being wimpy or not have to do with a heavily descriptive rape and mind breaking smut story? You can't just say its fiction and enjoy this one, but feel proud if you don't enjoy this. Its proof you are a good person.

Spoiler

The MC is garbage who wants to get his love interest pregnant and for her to service him forever. His advisor is the devil who wants to ruin the girl's life and goes as far as to say if she get pregnant with the mc/rapist baby, getting rid of it is murder to scare her. Shes says to a just recently s*xually abused high school girl. She has her past to explain her actions, but it just makes it worse.

The translator insists that you find the rape victim to be the bad guy eventually, maybe he's right, not because someone told me it had nothing to do with the rape victim but rather her father, but so what that wasn't the case?

If this was a revenge story where the MC rapes girls who physically and mentally abuse classmates, teachers, family and who get away with it, that would be a good story. Still evil and unacceptable in real life, but a good story. Not this. Its just a wimpy kid who gets to rape his crush which gets overlooked by future heroines who come one after the other.

Whatever the ultimate reasons for everything is, the wimpy MC raped and repeatedly rapes a girl because she was his crush and was worried her new boyfriend would take her virginity. And as someone points out in a review he doesn't love her. Just her body, and its like at best. He gets a harem of girls super easily who willing want to be with him and are better looking, but he just has to rape this girl over and over again. And it gets video taped and pictures taken by the devil advisor who laughs and laughs.

I can't say this clearly enough, so I wrote a review. The characters not being raped or wronged are the scum of the earth. No excuses. This has set a whole new low for the Japanese culture I grew to love and its popular just shows how messed up the world is. If this had a bad ending for the MC I might have endured by telling myself it was just fiction, but seeing as its 1300+ chapters and is ongoing, I can't expect such a ending. Some of you might say it just the one girl and MC improves as a person, but so what. I like Dragon Ball Z, but if Goku raped a girl over and over again as a kid I would never had watch it.

Ark The Legend
July 27, 2017
Status: v1 prologue
The sequel isn't as good as the first. The first had better pvp fighting and quest, and the sequel picked up the blandness from the latter half. Still, its a good read. Ark's goal, setting, life station, and out look on life are all different, so it interesting. Still I don't get why everyone is comparing it to LMS.

I've read LMS and the only things remotely similar are getting hidden classes and making money. Even the game system and npc realism are different. And in Ark the main character won't... more>> make it rich till the end and its a incomparably modest amount than Weed's fortune. And in this sequel Ark's goal isn't even money. Everyone who made a review comparing the two either forgot what happened in LMS, or are unable to see any vr game as anything other than a copy of LMS. <<less

Infinity Armament
August 21, 2016
Status: c40
Love the way its going and hoping for more!

Infinity genre definitely inspired by Terror Infinity. Game elements such as stats, equipment, quest, shops, and calculated damage, but is very well done and not overloading with text like "The Ultimate Evolution", flowing much better. Also, nothing like Zhan Long like what one reviews says and is hardly cliche with its interesting style hardly used by the main stream works. There's no cheap A.I with set patterns to take advantage of, or you can take damage without feeling pain. Although there's HP,... more>> it starts out so low a few bullets or attacks can still kill you. Where Terror Infinity starts out with a fusion of real world rules with game elements and fantasy powers, before going more towards cultivation and items, Infinity Armament seems to stick with the game element as the main, and to a slightly lesser extent real world rules. The translation is also well done and should be praised.

The author obviously studied Terror Infinity which inspired the Infinity genre, and learned from its mistakes and truly thought out his system. This is where TI failed and IA succeeded, so you won't feel those gaps. A good pace, consistent rules, and steady upgrades not bordering into OP. Even after his large harvest in the first mission, he's not much stronger than a normal person except having two good weapons. MC is smart, logical, decisive, but so far not cruel and can be nice. Takes the best parts of Zheng and Xuan from TI, but more adventurous, more battle oriented tactics which Xuan lacked, and with a much deeper understanding of human nature. Not someone who snaps at the smallest remark, but he is not a wimp. He's not a common man entering a world like Zheng, but a man who trained himself for revenge in the real world, succeeded, died, and trying to find excitement in his new world. Skilled and smart, but not OP in any way. His vast skill set is explained in the three chapter prologue. Nothing he does gets settled due to plot armor, but his own efforts and is completely logical. He does receive a rewards with the luck of a main character, but who doesn't? A MC wouldn't be a MC, especially in a Chinese novel, without good luck.

Other characters are interesting and not too shallow. Doesn't go as deep into characters as "The Ultimate Evolution" or give out names to every human who so much as breaths like "God and Devil World", but I personally find that a great thing. In the Infinity genre you go from one world/setting to the next, so the Massive Kingdom Building in a single world/setting some people love like building up a nation, organization, or a vast cast of side characters growth, these things probably won't be here. Not 100% sure yet. In exchange, the Infinity genre gifts you a variety of impossible settings within a series. Zombie apocalypse, historical wars of the past, space frontiers, ancient civilizations with magic, and supernatural occult backgrounds. These are all but a few possibilities in Infinity genre. The best part is that there won't be a standstill or settling down in peace.

A true rival of Terror Infinity if you give it the chance as it was inspired by it. Exciting battles, interesting story, unique system, good planning, and interesting MC. Currently Infinity Armament is not as well known, but hope that changes, so spread the word.

Opinion as of Volume 4. Honestly I'm not too into IA right now. Don't know why but starting from v3 the MC keeps giving speeches about the nature of mankind and is sort of this semi prophet in a way. Also, they introduce for him a heavily descriptive innate ability. I'm leaving my rating as a 2 due to my initial impression. <<less

Decided to write this seeing the negative reviews. I agree with some points, but not with all. Harem? So what? He gets it easy enough sure and unrealistic, but who cares. Men like woman. Your boy readers would want a harem if they could and after volume 1 it aims to those readers. For those who call harem wish fullfillment in a fictional work aimed at youths, get over yourselves. I'm sure your idea of normal romance is idealized delusions of a virgins as well.

Dark? How dark did you want... more>> it to get? Rape and impregnating all the girls, leaving with a smile? Killing anyone who so much as looks at you funny like a psychopath? Don't put your dark delusions on a light novel.

Never thought it was great past volume 1, but not the worst. <<less

The Ultimate Evolution
August 20, 2016
Status: c60
Massive info dumps and boring battles that go on too long. The descriptions are disgustingly too much to bare and needless equipment info that describes down to the weight, width, and length. I would give it a 2 if the pace was faster.

Story has a interesting idea to explore more of the background story and minor characters, but ultimately fails badly and can't even complete with Terror Infinity, which was great, but had to many mistakes. MC and others are more interested in scheming and backstabbing than to adventure, do... more>> quest, and such. There's no fun or excitement. Its not even survival since you cab quit at any time.

The Nightmare Realm is the first world I have ever said, "Nope. Even if you offer me the chance to be the MC, I don't want to enter this fictional world". I'm sure plenty of readers have imagined themselves in the world of fiction, but who would want to enter a boring work like Ultimate Evolution?

Also, the MC is not a good person in the slightest. He'll kill someone who hasn't wronged him and think about raping a woman before killing her, and killing her just because it might make things more interesting and profitable. Basically, he has the personality of the manipulative guy in stories who works behind the scenes who eventually dies to the hero... but only he's the main character.

The system of the Nightmare realm is bad. Both the enhancements and rules. Too many restrictions as well. If you are more powerful than the average movie character because of plot and setting, rather than being exceptional, the system will reduce your powers. That's just one example.

Story progression isn't exciting to read. The MC plans too much. Readers recently have been raving about wanting more smart and decisive MCs for some reason, so here you go. The principal of the smart and ruthless MC. <<less

Can't say much about the system at this point. Overall interesting, but has faults.

MC goes from scared normal guy to ruthless fighter quickly. His existence overshadows the original MCs to the level its sad. Borderline NTR by stealing the hearts of females before they hook up.

Author is bad at describing characters. A female character who had orange hair is blonde and a man with dyed obvious fake hair is just blonde.

Spoiler

Author also has a odd outlook in rxxx and women. In the first mission, MC's group see a man forcing himself on a woman, and they all react by blushing and turning their heads for half a minute. You would think this group who can kill would have a better reaction. When they finally do chase the man away, the girl follows him, saying she's a weak girl who knows her place. This was all not even 24 hours after the apocalypse of this world.

The Tutorial Is Too Hard
December 10, 2016
Status: c28
Seems like a nice guy the MC, but a bad ass who never forgets a grudge. Ever and even keeps a list.

Very hardworking to the point of actually becoming a M. Is smart, but can be foolish, yet that allows him to grow unlike some complete and unrealistic MC's out there. The game is survival base rather than monster fighting, at least early on, yet very amusing to read the sh*t hardcore mode throws at him.

Killing Grounds of Gods and Devils
October 30, 2016
Status: c171
Spoiler

The evolution works like this. You kill a monster and acquire Strange Energy/Qi/Experience in one small part of your body. You begin at level 0, and you collect energy to level up. As you level up, which is hard to do, you gain energy for strengthening the body and unique personal skills, and a mutation, starting from a part of the body like the hand, foot, head or chest, and grows as you level up.
Those with strange enery are called black iron warriors. There should be silver and gold after iron, but we have yet to get to it in the translations.

Also, power leveling a large group is impossible. Why will be revealed later, so don't question why don't they do it.

There is also a interesting twist to the evolution factor I've never seen done before where it explains why just by entering a fantasy world you can suddenly gain all these mystical powers. To support this rapid power of evolution and super powers, your life force gets drained rapidly. From the moment you become part o the KGGD system and gain powers you have three months to live. The first two months you don't notice a thing, but during the last week or so you begin to rapidly age and experience agonizing pain the makes you beg for death. The key to avoid this is to either acquire items to compensate the loss of life force, Time Money, or make a contract with a fallen God type creature who will suspend the loss of life force, although if it dies all the contractors will die as well. As one character described it, "Once you embark on the path of evolution, you either succeed and evolve, or die".

[collapse]

Monsters are very strong and ruthless. Don't listen to reviews about having trouble against goblins. A goblin can kill a full grown man with ease. The next level of goblin can literally punch through a normal human body and has great reflexes. This game if you can call it that does not ease you in. I don't get why other people even bring us GDW. This is not at all similar. There isn't even an apocalypse. Apocalypse is a modern or advanced society that one day falls apart for whatever reason. Monsters or killer zombies. This is transportation. Also, the game element is so small you forget its there. You don't even hear a system voice till chapter 15 or so. No stats or skill books. Just three equips after 100+ chapters.

Some question the varying level of power between characters, but its natural. There's no party system similar to G&DW, so the last killing blow goes the XP, except for rare exceptions. The main character takes the best kills since only he can enter a fight with them and win for the most part, and can rarely give the kills away, and the rest take his scraps in the beginning till they learn how dangerous and foolish it really is to rely only on the MC. Very realistic as opposed to stories where male and female characters are badass from start, or just need a few chapters to become one. This novel doesn't rush the story. No system to tell them the rules, the ultimate goal, or a kind noble woman, farm girl, or old man you just happen to meet in the middle of no where who helps you along. Its a blind transportation into the wilderness which is rare and quite interesting to see in this era of web novels. Character just have to adapt best they can after entering a monster filled forest world with no end or information to go on. And so they are clueless and have no goal other than trying to escape for the first 150 chapters. Realistic approach for a group abandoned in a new world, but for those not used to a story not spoon feeding you step by you may feel the work is bad.

Very good, but warning, you have to endure 50 chapters to get yourself settled in. Not only does it take almost 20 chapters to really get how the evolution and power ups work, conversations are shallow till the group cut down to 10 fighters. Also, the author begins to improve as the novel goes on. I get the hate, but now that there are over 170 chapters you don't feel the story is going nowhere. You just keep reading till it grows on you.

Anyone looking for links of the 179 translated chapters after the site expired just message me and I'll get back to you.

A really good novel. To sum it up its the better Ultimate Evolution type novel in MC, characters, setting, logic, story telling, and action. I compare it to UE because they have many similarities and both suffer from the disease called Info Dumps, but at least in DC its only restricted to item descriptions.

Main Character Hides His Strength
June 30, 2018
Status: c142
One of the best KR novels out there. Has an OP MC who doesn't piss me by how strong he is due to the setting. Has good world building and characterization of a corrupt world where good people are few and the vile and corrupt rule. Especially love how the MC views everything around him. Some people may be upset and bash the novel because the MC isn't die hard for revenge or changing the corrupt world, but I'm not terribly upset and it's a breath of fresh air from... more>> CN novels to have a mature protagonist. Oh, but he does have at least one person he hates to the core and will curve stomp and humiliate which was very satisfying. Still, if you like those revenge plots it's best to go else where.
Spoiler

Some reviews talk about how unrealistic it was that the MC couldn't learn magic from threatening or buying someone off. They are right to think so as I did once, but it's complicated. Especially when he absolutely needed secrecy. And even if he did threaten someone it's impossible he would reach the level he needed to. He needed to reach the top 0.001% of magic users in a impossible time frame where as the few geniuses and fortunate who reached such a level took decades. And bringing a companion has risk since it is the demon king, so there is a high chance they would die even with our OP MC there. And as later chapters state, if he brought his magic teacher who is strong enough to kill the demon lord with magic, the demon lord would spot them and do everything in his power to kill the helper. The demon king may evenchoose to flee or resort to more drastic measures to survive, so it's impossible to bring a helper if you think about it.

There is also something readers like to complain about. He had a daughter not his own by blood pushed onto him by some woman. The MC appears to be aware from the start that she isn't related to him by blood, so he wasn't tricked like some suggest, but for currently unknown reasons he bonded with the daughter and his reason for fighting and saving the world is for her. I don't get why, but lots of people bring this up. Some even in the reviews which is stupid. We don't even know the full story as of yet.

MMORPG: Rebirth of the Legendary Guardian

Have no complaints about the novel. Its a more than okay restart game type setting. Certainly not the best, but I'm mature enough not to complain about originality or top tier writing when the author certainly wasn't aiming for it. At least its a skillful OP character rather than a dozens of OP equips or special classes found one after the other.

One reviewer compared it to King's Avatar, but they are nothing alike. Especially since this is vr game, MC not a top tier pro with three titles, no special... more>> weapon, no super overlooked class, this is a restart, MC trying to start not just a team but a big business as well, and the game is more complex except battle mechanics... why are we comparing this to King's Avatar again? Anyways, only thing similar I see is that they go over actual game dungeons, and this is more realistic than King's Avatar. <<less

Master Hunter K
October 18, 2016
Status: c19
Main character gets a restart, but none of the nonsense that comes with it. Its a Korean novel, but might have a infinity genre vibe to it, but not much. Also, I don't find myself annoyed by his good fortune and luck because he doesn't care half the time and admits some times its just luck. Beginning reminds me of Heavenly Calamity.

After reading more I find myself very impressed. Its the perfect OP restart setting. Main character, nick name K, is very skilled and used his skills to get OP... more>> stats and good gear. Still he is not a broken OP character. Was the top swordsman in the final ten, but admits he wasn't the best. Normally this is where most restarts fail as they rely heavily on OP MC who one punch everyone and were expected to be impressed after hundreds of chapters. Not K. The hidden elements of the raids are difficult to overcome and later on K pushes himself to do better than cruise through the raids. Setting is fast pace. Follows a mission/hunt format. You go on a hunt to kill monsters and boss. Simple, but the game adds a twist. Your teammates are random and there's a system to encourage Trolling/backstabbing comrades. Add a time limit and vastly increasingly difficult bosses and hidden elements, you get a thrilling ride. Especially with K who likes to solo in the early stages. Lacks a vast cast of side characters, but the author wrote a setting where such a thing isn't needed and would be boring to read. Essentially, a normal OP MC will use his high advantage to beat his game/challenge with a 100% perfect score with ease. K who isn't lazy aims for what you can call a 500%-1000% score. K is OP, but his objective is so difficult he never has a easy time. Top contribution, speed run the boss, find hidden elements in time left, and much more later down the line.

My opinion towards the ending.

Spoiler

It gets boring. K gets strong enough to cruze through 5 man raids alone along with the hidden bosses. And I know for certain the ending was rushed. To complete MHK to a satisfactory conclusion would require at least 300 chapters, but it ends in the 180's. And because by 160 we aren't even near where K died in his first timeline, we can assume a lot of things get skipped and brushed over in a shallow manner. K has only met 3 of his former final 10 comrades by the 160's, so don't expect much.

And even as the author redos the final chapters for English readers it doesn't get better. The author has no intention of fixing his rushed ending, only expanding it which is even more insulting to us readers.

After Transformation, Mine and Her Wild Fantasy
March 17, 2018
Status: c150
An extremely interesting and unique story. The MC wakes up one day in a fantasy world without any memories. Pretty cliché right? Well in this story the author spices it up by doing something original. The MC isn't just one person as he wakes up to discover he, or she has two bodies controlled by one mind. A male youth Tyre and a young girl Lunaria. They have no idea who they are or why they share one mind, but before they can figure it out, through a misunderstanding, they... more>> get separated. And as a result rather than being together as a story where one person just happens to have another body to control like a tool, they end up living different lives with their own social circles. And I do thank the heavens Tyre isn't raping or getting turned on by his female half (Was worried for a while).

Tyre -
Spoiler

The male and more dominate half. After learning martial arts from a god (While rare they aren't so few that it's impossible to meet one) that can only be learned by someone with dual processing he becomes extremely strong despite having weak Qi as he hasn't cultivated yet and later its shown his cultivation speed is below average, so for now he is only relying on his frightening sword skills. And when I say strong he isn't god tier or close to it, but is strong enough to challenge and beat people above his cultivation level to a extent which is very impressive. Has no talent for magic, yet may possibly have some for dimensional magic. Also his body repels seals, so he is OP against seal masters.

[collapse]

Lunaria -
Spoiler

The less dominate half. The author goes back and fourth if she is just Tyre in a female body, or develops her own identity by living as a girl, but it mainly reads as seeing herself as male so far. Has the same talent with the sword as Tyre, but because of her lack of combat experience she developed slower than her male half. But unlike her male half she had OP potential for magic in all areas to varying degrees except dimensional magic, and so becomes a duel practioner. And as opposed to her male half she cultivates Qi much faster, to the point she worries the balance of the two bodies will break one day.

Its my personal opinion, but because there are things like Lunaria has the same talent for the sword, but falls behind Tyre due to a lack of combat experience even though they are said to have one mind, leads me to believe they both the same yet still individuals. If they were the same then so long as their isn't a physical or spiritual problem, like how Tyre isn't physically/spiritually compatible with magic, Lunaria should be just as skilled in the sword as Tyre even without fighting as much since she should have his/her combat experience. Lunaria even learned Tyre's sword skills from his memories, yet the combat experience didn't cross over. This leads to the conclusion while they share knowledgeable and memories, personal experience which form their own identity won't pass over.

With its 3.4 rating and some bad reviews I thought this novel was trash, but I'm glad to be proven wrong.

Has some cultivation clichés, but has a lot of good parts and MC isn't a sociopath or hypocritical tyrant like a lot of Chinese novel protagonist are. MC is a interesting take on a confident protagonist as well. The elemental system of magic seems off at first by how biased it is, but as one review informed me it all balances out eventually.

And why so many reviews about water and ice magic being different is strange. Has no one seen a novel, game, or anime where that happens? Ice is usually seen as an advance level of water magic or fusion of like water and wind, so why be bothered? It's stupid.

This is definitely one of the better school transportation novels I've ever read. And while I don't find the story exceptional or unique, what makes this novel stand out is the great character development, dark and raw setting, a good and realistic harem development, and the lack of plot armor in battle or tactics. If you've grown sick of the typical power fantasies or main characters with intellectual plot armor you'll love this novel like I do. And best part this jp protagonist has a personality.

A very good novel with a interesting plot. Turning chivalrous knights into bandits is original and exciting. There are a few reviews other than mine pointing out its odd that knights are clueless about acting like bandits, but isn't that the point? If they could just accept and flip their mindsets and morality so easily it'll be unrealistic and bad writing in a setting where chivalry and customs play have solid foundation, unlike modern warfare.

Status: v18c1 part1
My opinion of TI started out very high, unimaginably so, but soon went downhill. TI has its mistakes and plot holes, but the story was great and battles were intense. The problem is the author. He is very inconsistent. He gets us in love with the idea of getting powers and tools right out of fantasy and fiction, but never really explores it as much as he should. There are even stats to quantify realistic attributes like muscle density and reaction speed, but are never brought up in later arcs.... more>> Even MC barely has powers. Eight in all after 18 volumes.

Spoiler

After 17 volumes the main character Zheng had the following:

Intermediate Qi, Volume 1.

Vampire Baron, Volume 1.

Progressive Knife, Volume 3, bought for him and lost in volume 8.

Red Flame Blood Spell, Volume 4.

Nameless Movement Technique, Volume 7, could have gotten earlier in Volume 4, plot hole.

Advance Qi, Volume 9

Chaotic Unity Qi, Volume 13, not mentioned past Volume 14.

Tiger Soul - Sword, Volume 14, upgraded in Volume 17.

May not sound like a few things, but remember its 18 volumes and the store ends at 23.

[collapse]

He does has special quest items, yet he never uses them after certain points.
Spoiler

He gets the Book of the dead in the Mummy. According to its description it contains dozens of black magic spells where you only need 1000 points to learn a spell, or if you know the language you can exchange them for free. The main characters don't do either vety much, but it doesn't matter. Latter in the story they barely use it, and the author changes it to that you actually need the Book to cast any spells at all. Well, thinking about it having the book to use spells isn't that bad, but still mad they barely use it.

They later get the Golden Book of Revival from the Mummy. It's original description was the Book contains multiple spells and not just revivals, but the author only writes them using it revive comrades.

The MC Zheng gets the Spear of Osiris. It's incredibly powerful, but he forgets to use it. In a latter volume the Author wrote that if you infused refined energy into the Spear it grows ridiculously powerful even with just a small amount, but not only did the MC only try doing so in the middle of a battle when just before he took almost a year to do self training, he forgets about it later.

They also get the scorpion king bracelet which can summon undead soldiers. It's a great item that's barely used even when having extra fighters around would help a lot.

The MC obtained The One Ring. It has the ability to refine energy or convert it to another type of energy. The MC only uses it to refine energy, completely not considering the various ways to use any other type of energy.

[collapse]

Also a defining concept of TI gets ruined in the end. The Genetic Constraint.

Spoiler

First Stage that bestows combat instincts is okay.

Second Stage physical and reaction speed buff is okay.

Third Stage skill copy is okay, but is later weakened and rarely used in combat.

Fourth Stage is game breaking. Its like going from level 1 to level 100, and destroyed the idea one needs to train and challenge themselves to become strong. In one instance it allowed the MC to rival a much, much stronger player who reached end game stage enhancements and who is the embodiment of talent and hard work.

Its original explanation was pure genetic manipulation, where you just adjust your mutations and body to suit the user, but the more we learn the more stupidly broken it is. You don't even need enhancements in a sense long as you reach 4th stage. The story actually shows one character without enhancement reaching the fourth stage and having strength to rival the MC in some ways. It even gets more broken as it allows a MC who never trained his magic to gain high level magic powers outside the system.

[collapse]

How the author balances risk equals rewards is messed up. Concept just get introduce and discarded for the next. Battles are no longer battles to the death for survival, but shallow exchanges after a certain point to make characters look strong and smart, when they aren't. At least by standards for what I imagine high level players to potentially be at after so much time passes.

Characters are also strange. A very liked character, not by me, Xuan is what I call intellectual plot armor.

Spoiler

Around volume 14 his plot armor kicks in and any guess he makes ends up true even without evidence. In addition he makes Zheng look bad. They would originally have conflicts over plans and methods, Zheng is the human side of the argument and Xuan is the extreme logical side of it. It was interesting to see them contrast with one another which is good writing, but then author writes Zheng to be a spineless bitch and Xuan ignores rank and acts as leader whenever he likes. And people allow him to do this because it's too hard to think for themselves. Xuan also lies or stays quite for no reason. He may give a reason, but I can argue and win against him.

He also gets actual power plot armor latter on. Xuan somehow without going through much danger reaches the fourth stage. It stupid since he only experienced 1 minor battle and 1 major battle after unlocking his constraint.

[collapse]

All in all as one reviews TI has many flaws, but is still a okay read. At least early chapters.

Also, people complaining about copyrights, no terror, or revivals need to grow up and stop complaining about irrelevant things. TI is amazing because it enters movies and would be less popular if those and fictional powers weren't there. Terror? Its just a word. As for revivals it is what it is. If there were no revivals then characters would never die or rarely die due to plot armor. <<less

A very great novel. Has some things seen before, yet it written in a way to draw you in chapter by chapter and has some original ideal. Not only does it take place after the death game, but has a protagonist who doesn't want the restart. That alone makes this novel stand out.

Much better than how some reviews say it is. Main character in some ways is the ideal MC must people want in this generation. OP, smart, cunning, no fall down a cliff and become OP, and no harem. Best part he isn't the stereo type of the above in recent CN main characters. He is mature enough to not get upset over things long as you don't cross his line and doesn't become ruthless and look down on good people.

Other characters to my amazement are so real. The other world... more>> the story takes place in forces people to make hard choices and the constant danger forces people to strive for the right balance of survival and desire for power. We'll find very few real good people, but good people who forgotten who they are and act selfish and bad. Even selfish people in a time of crisis are shown as not just evil or pricks. Of course there is evil here, but not in the generic way. Real evil by people unable to trust there fellow humans or just want the world to burn. The main character is a individual who won't just kill someone in their way for small reasons, so we get to see all sides of humanity. Good, bad, and the middle. <<less
