The MC is a genius of the past that survived a nuclear apocalypse thanks to his invention, 'cold storage', which put him in a hibernating state for 300 years. When he wakes up he coincidentally arrives at a orphanage. He is adopted and soon drafted in the special military that deals with dangers behind the wall that protects the city. He first becomes a scavenger, one who searches for vestiges of the past in the safe areas outside the wall, and later becomes a hunter, one who hunts dangerous, mutated animals. He has a group of friends since the military academy, the ones he calls 'brothers', and another pack of friends from the orphanage, friends with disabilities that he plans on using to create facilities where he will develop the former society, a mission entrusted to him by his father. Now here comes the first huge division. He falls in love and plans on discarding everything. Absolutely everything. He forgets about his friends from the military academy, he forgets about his friends from the orphanage, about the mission entrusted by his father and plans on having s*x with a beauty until he dies... Or not, her father would not allow it so he sends him to the highest security prison "cough"gay camp"cough". Yeah, you read that well, he is almost raped the second he arrives in his cell after he is brutally tortured. He manages to remain with his normal butt hole, but everyone else in that prison is fucking asses like there is no tomorrow. In the end he finally escapes after five years and manages to get the help of a weakened noble family, that bails him with a few words and a shitload of money. He gets revenge on the corrupt judge and then he starts his plan to raise the status of the noble family that bailed him. He remembers about his friends from the orphanage and he plans to use them, but now one of them has decided to quit the group, so he remains with three of them. Soon after that he forgets about them once again. Anyway, from this point on he is going to invent new things (about two), train from time to time (one, two hours a day), joins the alchemist faction which is evil in the face of the holy faction (spends a few hours once and never returns), and then joins the holy faction which is annoying in the face of the alchemist faction (even though he might get caught fucking with both). I still can't grasp the reason, but his gains amount to 0 beside some money and a little status. Before joining the holy faction he cripples his left hand btw. And now he needs to repair that one too. Anyway, now he becomes the perfect assassin after training fora few months on how to use knives with only one hand. Like this he manages to kill about five knights from the alchemist division.... Why? well, he wanted to recover the chip containing all the patents of the former modern world from the 'cold storage device' that arrived in the hands of the alchemist faction. So he killed them. And also faces one of the strongest knights of this faction even though his knowledge about close combat amounts to a few months of training. At this point he also start forgetting about the noble family that he promised to help. At chapter 241 he starts a holographic device containing all of the inventions of the past and plans on using them to gain status most probably in both factions. Why did I drop it here? Until now the story hasn't managed to create a stable footing for the MC, can you imagine the author being able to so now that he is trying to recreate the industrial revolution? In the end what is the name of this novel? The inventor king? The kid with PTSD and Alzheimer? No, he is the dark king. So dark that I have no fucking idea what is in the end his real plan, his real skill, and so on.
So, to reduce everything to + and -
+ A smart MC
+ Interesting beginning
+ Interesting power ups
+ Interesting side characters
+ realistic plot
- The plot goes through the shredder
- The side characters are changed faster than socks
- He doesn't obtain any new useful abilities even after he is capable of hunting by himself beside strength enhancing
- His revenge stops after killing one judge
- The so called friends disappear from the story for no reason whatsoever
- The MC becomes extremely ruthless almost instantly.
- The MC tends to forget about important missions and promises.
- The world itself even after 241 chapters is not explained, but we finally get a clue. It seems the story has stolen a lot of things from "attack on titan". For some reason now the noble families are actually in the outer city. There is another one. An inner city. The MC never tried to find t his information.
- Finally, no offense, the translation is extremely crappy. Better than machine translation by a little.
We have to deal with an MC that has absolutely everything from best parents that are recognized everywhere as the strongest to friends that are closer than siblings and beautiful girls with no backbone
he didn't attack anyone, he just protected his land, he only became a monarch over a territory no one wanted, etc etc
We get crap like inter dimensional conflicts that resemble a game of Starcraft with the possibility of a duel between the two lords as revenge by the losing party. The 72 minions of the evil god that wanted to invade the planet are suddenly acting like chess players, while other worlds have entered the stage. I sh*t you not, the entire world is f**king attacked by a huge army of another world, yet the 72 minions that are way stronger than these shitheads haven't sent their armies to do the same thing. The story slowed its already snail like pace to raise the levels of the rest of the protagonist party, his sister is suddenly sick with some god seed which can make her capable of receiving information and power from one god that will chose her, and next who knows, maybe his mother will become terminator. The last chapters detail the invasion of the planet of those that have previously tried to invade earth. Which should take a while as other characters suddenly joined the party
speak, walk, use magic attacks
BTW, this chick is also some goddess of war that went through a lot, as the author reminds her from the days he was playing as an Otaku. Her eyes were filled with sadness as she remembered her adoptive parents being slaughtered by the necromancers's skeletons. In this world the protagonist wasn't capable of saving her adoptive parents and she cried her crocodile tears for about three paragraphs, and then she moved on. Shortly after she followed behind the protagonist that was as nimble as a cat because of his training with a shadow class player in his former world, while caring a few tens of kilograms through a dense forest in a dense night. I don't know, maybe she has some goddess skill, like pinpointing the protagonist d**k smell and following like a beast in heat.
future position as a sect/mafia leader/boss.
either him ending with his rival, or having his "deity" awake from her coma"
is a female with a lot of talent that can somehow survive because she is really talented, really really talented, how talented you ask? Well the author said something along the lines "She qualified as a participant of Korea in the Olympic games as an archer, which is known to everyone to be even harder than winning a gold medal at the Olympic games."....
Only recently the action started to include humans as enemies.
strong practitioner gets to inhabit the body of a weak character that dies because of its stupidity or misfortune and nobody sees any difference when the character suddenly changes
Women start to do anything for him, even if it meant rape. Oh, I should also add that one of them includes her own disciples and another one her sister.
He is "special". How special? He read everything. No really, everything. Playboy, Hustler, you name it. Thousands of prodigies were trained by him. He is better than anyone and is able to fight against other cultivators even if they are more than one realm above him. What does it mean? From not being able to put up a fight with someone a LEVEL above you, he suddenly manages to beat cultivators two realm higher. His is already the sovereign of the Three Realms when it comes to his pride and self esteem. You all should known about plot armor. This one has something different. Very different. I call it, memory armor. How so? If sh*t happens, he needs two seconds to remember where he read that sh*t and how to resolve it. Yeeeah, I love that kind of reasoning.
Inconsistency. From the scary emperor that has a strong personality and a clever mind, later on he becomes some sort of vegetable that makes simple mistakes. From a spiritual vein in fields owned by our protagonist family that may be a huge danger, we go to the civil war. To a kingdom where those that reach the eleventh level of the first realm are considered some sort of rarity we find out that the kingdoms around them have a lot of cultivators two realms higher than their rarity and for some reason never decide to attack them. Cultivation is a joke, he somehow finds a shortcut, makes a big point about not disclosing the means, but later on he starts giving it left and right. His best friends simply become some old memories about debauchery. And with the new arc we get the true plot armor. Sincerely, I'm just reading it because its on wuxiaworld.
we are forced to digest the existence of a brand new character that was sealed inside our protagonist and acts as some cruel cultivator that enjoys stealing life force from men through their heads and from women from their.. dantanian...
