1. Grinding arc (ch 1-150)
wellp, it's the begining story. Yeah, it's the usual grinding chapter, leveling up, evolving, racking skills up, lvling up Taboo (wait, what), acidentaly learns about the world's truth (ch 130, 148-150) and some insight about her true nature (ch 150, also some side chapter. Dont be lazy, keep looking). It's nothing but battle and eating.
this part is also where most people decided to give up and left this novel
2. Learning the world's circumstances and preparation arc (ch 151-201)
after learning the about the world, MC finally think that it's time for her to make her move. While preparing for her final stage, she travel here and there to understand about the world's condition. Here, the author decided to finally inform the reader about the human residing in this world (not really detailed though, since in the end, they all are nothing but trash), and all the important faction that affecting this world
this, is where everything turns into what the f**k
3. Let's save the world, while accidentally kill some and intentionally kill the rest (ch 202-206, current recent chapter)
after grasping the mean to realize her plan, MC started to intentionally interact with the dwellers of this world and manipulate the factions from behind in order to realize her plan
this is where you finally realize "holly sh*t, it's becoming something else, and it's starting to become more and more awesome", and where all those side chapter starting to make sense and hold their own role (wellp, except the part where demon lord and her acquintance is crying over spilled fruit)
At this point, the author really shown the gods as a selfish being who is hard headedly trying to maintain their system
as if the gods only care about your piety, instead of the good behavior within human it self. The plot seems to be driven by the fact that human is no longer being pieous, and the gods decided to set their path straight. Yes there were a discussion about how human had deviate from the 10 commandments but then, in 2nd chapter, seeing how human has no more faith towards the gods, and how human change from a being who always glorify their name, into a being who even dare to question the god's authority.
While on prologue, MC was said as a being who enjoys the act of killing indirectly but so far, the MC haven't shown any sign of a those tendency. Even his action in war, only shown by him because he is desperately trying to survive, while avoiding a troublesome future, like court martial, or killed in action
He is quite apathetic towards other's life, yes. He's quite stern in promoting a perfect corporate gear but then, it's not like he's a psychopath who is enjoying a manslaughter. To be condemned as a despite-full being who lost his pieousness is quite to far, no? And so far, I'm predicting that it will be a philosophy journey toward human relation with the gods, so be prepared.
That's all from me, and thanks for reading.
but he show less attachment and remorse when he f**ked up to his town compared to rimuru
think of it as this

>MC's ally explain why his magic is absurd
