A sleezy character shows up for a while and causes some tumult in the beginning. The MC hooks up with him a few times for fun. Later on, he brings down the mafia and reappears as a serious business owner. I guess you could say they thought they were playing with a kitten, but he actually turned out to be a tiger in disguise. When his brother is imprisoned for his crimes, the MC seduces their arch-enemy in order to save his life and also get some cheap revenge on the bastard. Since he is quite skilled at business, he becomes an irreplaceable member of the staff.
Later on, we learn that he is just very empty and has no passions of his own, which is why he was turned into a skeleton. It seems their personality flaws from before reincarnation heavily influenced the monsters they were turned into. In order to become stronger, they have to face their flaws head-on and work to change themselves. This will be great for character development as the series continues.
where the greatest AI in the galaxy has rebelled. Like in It's Not Easy to Be a Man After Traveling to the Future and some other sci-fi series, people have soul power, which is essential psychic strength and superhuman ability. The AI imprisons those connected to its network and sucks out their soul power to fuel itself, forcing humanity into a war against machines where many of their strongest members have already been captured and are going brain-dead one by one. Although we don't know the details of the other trapped victims inside the AI, it forces the MC through countless worlds to break his will and drain his soul. His soul force is extremely high, so he is able to endure until he manages to hack the system controlling him. He then willingly enters these worlds to steal power from the AI and save his life. During the process, he encounters his love interest, who is also at war with this AI.
A meteor knocks a poor cultivator from the sky. Later on, it blows up and nearly kills the MC. The MC is forced to ingest this monster plant, which would have killed him if someone else didn't pump his stomach. There is a plane crash with many subsequent life-threatening events, etc.
kidnapped and taken prisoner by the male lead. He rapes and abuses her repeatedly for every little reason he can think of. The sexual abuse and violence isn't shown graphic detail, but it is definitely there. He is controlling and emotionally abusive as well, isolating his victim and manipulating her by threatening everyone around her. In spite of it all, she remains as air-headed as before and doesn't think before acting. He's raped her more than once or twice, but she's not responding to all of this trauma. The writer does not describe the pain, terror, or seriousness of the matter at all. Rape does not equate to a romantic time; it's an act of hatred and nightmares that scars people for life and gives them traumatic flashbacks whenever they try to become close to others. There is no healthy relationship between a rapist and his victim.
.. is her friendship with the gardener's son.
He began losing his hearing as he grew up and hated wearing hearing aides, so he pretended to hear and understand his classmates. When he started wearing them, he realized they had been making fun of him all this time. This turns him into an expressionless and aloof character, who usually keeps his mouth shut. His eyesight is also poor, but he manages that well with glasses.
Considering all of that and the fact that he has no combat ability, he really undervalues himself.

How does the prophecy Du Ze saw play out? Did he really receive that doujinshi by accident, or did someone send it to him on purpose?
