Seoul Station’s Necromancer

This novel had a very strong start, but unfortunately it became plagued by the same problems that many series on NU do, the characters feel like they've lost their depth, the world seems to bend over backwards to make the MC seem great and even the parts that were really good such as his nigh-psychopathy and the worldbuilding have fallen flat on their faces. I'm especially disappointed with how the author chose to limit the MC, he was overpowered as all hell so his power was made essentially useless against... more>> the people he actually wants to take down (anything more would be a spoiler). The way this was down, however, felt extremely forced in out of nowhere.

That's not to say it's terrible, it's still better than the majority of the stuff on NU, but that (obviously, my opinion) it shouldn't be this highly rated. <<less

Honestly, I don't see why this is so highly rated. There's almost nothing unique or new about this series, and plenty of other series do the premise much better yet have a lower score. The first two chapters were alright, but beyond that it doesn't stand out in any way. The writing of the author (and due to that the translation) is obviously not amazing, the plot had potential but even the main character really has nothing particularly likeable about him. He's the definition of a generic JP protagonist. The... more>> action isn't great and every element of the plot is almost cliché by this point as well. I'm rating it about 3/5 because it's so average but had a good beginning.

The powers of the main character and the whole premise of the series with the lady being typically useless without her boyfriend is so generic it almost hurts. This novel could have been really good if it stayed with focusing on the characters rather than the action, but even the action scene was boring to me. His girlfriend is in danger so he sacrifices himself and suddenly awakens the legendary super convenient power that perfectly fits his situation and is overpowered, yet the main character barely finishes off the bad guy without killing anyone. If this novel had had him awaken a power that killed the knight that would've been an acceptable route because it would lead to actual character development due to the shock of killing someone. I'm not at all expecting him to suddenly by a ruthless killer, but the story is just plain boring as is.

[collapse]

Overall, if you want a light-hearted tale of a generic JP MC and a relatively generic love interest in typical wish-fulfillment style this is for you. It might get better later on, since I've only finished about a volume and a half, but I think that's unlikely. Nothing wrong with wish fulfillment novels since a lot of people read for enjoyment, but personally I'm off to find a good Xianxia to read now instead of this. <<less

The Tutorial Is Too Hard

This series is super solid. It does an amazing job of impressing how easy it is to die in the challenges of the tutorial, while providing great characters and a genuinely interesting plot. Overall a series I feel comfortable recommending if you enjoy powerful main characters.

I don't understand why people are rating it so highly, it's a pretty generic xianxia-esque series with an overpowered main character, just with a female protagonist instead of a male one. It, at least so far, doesn't even have the world building or character depth of something like Emperor's Domination.
