Evolution Theory of the Hunter


Links are NOT allowed. Format your description nicely so people can easily read them. Please use proper spacing and paragraphs.

In a world of dungeons and monsters you can become strong if you merely have enough money.

Rare skillbooks that can magically upgrade your skills in an instant are sold at exorbitant prices. So only the privileged and rich are able to buy their way to become hunters – a much revered occupation that allows one to enter dungeons and hunt monsters.

Our MC is a porter, a sort of caddie for hunters. He dreams of one day becoming a hunter when he comes into possession of a skillbook.

But the skill is a level 0. Something unheard of. No one wants it. People laugh at it. But he learns the skill – only to find that it may be the most amazing one yet.

Not bad but not especially good, I was hesitating between 3 and 4. The plot and the characters are not original. That's the first korean novel I read with a korean nationalism and China dissing as developped. The dissing is not as irritating as in IRRS though.

So as you can have guessed after reading the review, his power is OP, he starts poor and if you have looked at the tags his power is a growth type. The setting is that of a near-future world, with dungeons appearing on our... more>> earth and the story beginning some years after. There is a romance with a comic relief girl, and MC is a leader and that's pretty much everything. <<less

I really like the world and story. It is interesting to see a modern world become infested with monsters and humanity's reaction. The means of telling the story could us some work. The author doesn't have great character interactions. The characters are pretty interesting if you look at them individually but the dialogue and how the MC interacts with them makes the side characters seem bland. There are some plot holes because the mechanics behind the monsters starts to change because the MC randomly takes a level 0 skill that's... more>> never been used before. The bad guys are also act extremely impractacle for people who have such strong power and lived to have such power, a problem shared by lots of web novels. <<less

It's alright. Started off slow and boring, then it got better.

Mixture of modern day world with dungeons, monsters, items, skills. Post apoc but the countries seem to be doing fine, other than population decrease.

MC is strong, kinda dense or not really interested in love. At least he uses his head and is capable in a fight.

Not exactly a VRMMORPG type of story. It's like The Gamer webtoon/manhwa mixed with Hai to Gensou no Grimgar (Grimgar of Fantasy and Ash). There's no character level or quests or anything. No crafting other... more>> than only MC, items drop from monsters. The only progressions are the equips and their single skill. They each only have a single skill usually. Occasional PK/murder. The whole story is pretty much dungeon grinding for money, it's their job. Money to buy better equips or skillbooks. <<less

Its a interesting story with a modern setting combination with a dungeon/game element alike. The start was a little bit to much of explanation but as you follow the story is will became more interesting and make you want more.

The MC its not like an arrogant fool like other MC novel, instead he always using his head and find a way, although MC not really that kind but overall it still acceptable, I haven't really read that far thou but I'm going to keep read it and maybe edit my... more>> further review

Try yourself its a good novel :) <<less

Very good characters and detail to suroundings. Usually with a labyrinth type of novel its either the characters are always in the labyrinth or either sometimes out or in also I like this kind of new point system instead of leveling

Chapter 33 - 4/5

- Grammar & formatting mostly OK

- Story nice to read but the MC gets strong too fast so the usual scene was implemented

- Girls: harem element seems to be in view

- Open question if he is the only one where the 0 series drops

Review as of chapter 32. It is a bit on the early side but the concept of a world controlled by money and terrorized by monsters is an interesting one. It is too early to give a proper review however this is a novel that has caught my attention.

The protagonist is one who through luck aquires the ability to level up his own physical abilites. This doesn't actually show up until around chapter ~16 but after that the story gets going on earnest.

A take on VRMMO but takes place in the real world. With dungeons, skills and equipment. The premise is quite interesting. The MC is boring, but not cheesy or coward. The story progress a little slow at times, but doesn't drag on too much.

I recommend it.

Review as of Chapter 25

The premise of the story is good. The protagonist starts off being a pitiful person but then learns a skill - a seemingly useless skill. However this skill proves to be worth more than what it seems. The tension throughout the story so far is great and I hope it continues that way. (I can feel my heart pounding almost every other chapter)

One of maybe 5 new Korean novels I’ve added to my list in the last month. As of chapter 17, I’m really loving this. The story is progressing nicely and doesn’t have that rushed feeling to it that some novels, especially chinese ones have. A lower class, hard working protag slowly powers up living in a world where there is a huge difference between classes based on wealth.

Also, the exposition and world building comes in bearable doses and doesn't feel uncomfortable.

Translator is doing a good job with this: grammatically clean... more>> without losing the author’s style, although they seem to be converting money to dollar amounts. Nice of them to make the effort, but I’m not really sure how I feel bout that. <<less

If nothing else the setting is rather interesting. Think of LMS' Weed stuck in a magical world where only rich people have any chance to become powerful and that's half of what we've got so far.

It's still early to tell but I like it so far. It gets good starting from chapter two. I like how the action starts right away. Hopefully it stays at this pace.
