Evolution Theory of the Hunter

Dropped at ch 97

Friendship tag was something not yet shown yet. Money grubber was clearly stated even in the prologue but you really can't compare it to other novels with money grubber MC like LMS or ESP. Density of a Japanese beta MC is clearly present. A little clever at the start but became an idiot along the way. Heck, I don't understand what is pushing him to try harder. Why does he need money? Where is his family? What happened before he became a porter? It's either the translation... more>> hasn't gotten to that point yet or I'm just not seeing something what the author is trying to show me.

Focuses too much on the MC like all other characters are there just to aid him in either giving (becoming) loot or making him stronger. The only thing that made it good at the start was how the translation was done. But, when you hit ch 78, it becomes totally cancer for brains.

If you just want something to pass the time, this is good enough but don't expect anything worthwhile. Heck, even the the previous translator dropped this. (Don't know if RL matters or just got bored with it) <<less

It's said that a C&D was given to the translator.

I give it a 3.5 (well 4 since there is no decimals here. Anyway)

I can understand why a lot of people are hating on the MC. Honestly, I did too at the start.

Spoiler

If you finish the period where he didn't get the system yet, you'd think so hunters' achievements must be on how strong you are or that dungeons were mostly fight them all till you win. So basically, you would think even I could have solved that stuff.

When you read the story there were a lot of points you could contradict with if we are talking about gaming in general then applying it in real life.

Spoiler

like the part where he chose to increase solely his strength, then later on the other stats making it all rounded out. If you read other novels with gaming systems, you'd think it was better to be specialized in one category while not completely letting go of others. But in his case, he looked like a mashed up build that didn't focus on a certain strategy.

[collapse]

He is a brute which is typically not something most people would want to read.

I think the charm of this novel would be just how the story progresses. There is nothing complicated about it. It's not memorable to a certain degree. Heck, there a lot of better stories out there. You just enjoy it since it is fun. It's also enjoyable how the translator puts an extra effort on translating and fixing possible misprints by the author. <<less

Parallel World Pharmacy

Really like the novel considering I have some know how on pharmaceutical. Sure they could have added a bit more on the science side but currently I'm fine with it.

The story is progressing greatly compared to other isekai novel. We get to find out the secrets how he came to the world, what it means being who he is, and the effects of the things that he is trying to apply to the world particularly to his household and the country.

Honestly, I wanted it to be more slice of life... more>> where in there are no evil like presences that will pop out to hinder the protagonist. I'm fine with the politics and the scheming of the international level but the story feels weak if they suddenly introduce a character that will become a problem in the future. Though I know that doing things that way is orthodox it feels boring since you can see it most novels.

The downside is that the other side characters are people who I can't sympathize with enough. Sure, there were times that the emotions of what they were feeling at the moment due to their condition was okay. But afterwards. You'll just remember them as "Oh he was the one who experienced (insert condition) ".

Spoiler

The chapter I really was about the neighboring apothecracy that was running out of business due to the appearance of the different world pharmacy.

P.S. If you have the time, read the manga as well. Though there are a bit missing in some place it was still done well. <<less

Still new so I gave it a three. It will depend on whether will be just like the other novels with food as their selling point.

Firstly, the start of the story is the same generic isekai commonly read out there. Was brought into a new world, use japanese/ modern knowledge, become well liked yada yada yada.

What made me like the story wasn't because of the whole isekai / food genre, but the underlying background setting. If the whole premise of how things came to be is added later with it... more>> being portrayed well, then I might increase my rating.

P.S. What the comment said above still bothers me since I saw the illustration. Like is she 4 ft 10 in and the guy is 6 ft 10 in ???? <<less

After binging for 5 days, I finally caught up. Feel said that a lot of people are unsatisfied or to the point of hating the novel. It's understandable that the acts done here are morally wrong, but no one has the right to make someone like this stuff.

Okay, starting off let's talk about the MC, Timid, wimpy, and all around depressing. They are the commonly outcast people in society due to how they present themselves. We know it's wrong to discriminate but humans tend to make first impression base on... more>> what they see. This would be the starting point for most people to not like the male MC.

For him to develop, he places himself in situations that the normal human would not be able to face calmly or rationally. Even he still backs away when those situation happen at the beginning. But as the story progresses, we see that the reason for how the way he acts are just him forcing himself to continue with life. Later on, he develops his own principles which are still lacking in my opinion.

Now, there's the plot. What made the plot interesting was that s*x was used as the medium for connections. It's understandable that it seems disgusting. But in the end, humans need there id to be satisfied or else they turn crazy.

There is the Main Story and the After story. The main story is finished till ch 589. It was done incredibly well with how you can see the characters grow and how an attachment is form between each character. The downside is that a day reaches more than 10 chapters to finish.

With the After story that is still in progress in translating, it feels considerably weak. The knew characters added lack presence and feel less human compared to before. There are events wherein original characters are further developed but makes you dislike/like them more compared to before. Since it still new, it would be best to be open for more chances for new characters and more developments to come.

4 stars is the rating that I give for it. <<less
