Honestly this is a prime example of a good novel being ruined by horrendous translations. You could even argue that just finding the raws yourself and doing a google translation could be better, because at least they won't change the terminology 3 times.

Ignoring the translation quality itself, you can tell that the story itself is good, even while trying to sift through and understand what sense you can make out from the jigsaw puzzle of a translation. Long story short, the protagonist got into the game he played as random... more>> student A (with some isekai cheats because thats how it always goes) and his main goal at the point of I'm reading is to prevent the bad endings that the characters go through. There is also
Spoiler

some alliance of people protecting Korea in the story that has an obvious zodiac reference which feels really interesting.

[collapse]

All in all, while the story looks to be really good with potential to be great, I sincerely hope that another translation group picks this up or they improve the translation quality, because holy moly its really terrible. (rating is 4 only for the story itself, would give translation quality 0/5)

Update 11/06/2021

There has been a new group translating and they look to have done a much better job than multiverse at the moment, hope they keep up the great work! <<less

I'm literally in love with this book.

It gets even better and better.

When they are more chapters translated (and when the translation gets better), I'm almost certain that this could be as popular as tr*sh of the Count's Family, the Novel's Extra and the S-Classes that I Raised because how similar these are. But even though they give off a similar in the vibe, it's a completely different and original story.

It's so sad to find out what would've happened to all the characters if the main character hadn't intervened ... more>> T-T.

Conclusion: The plot and world building are top tier. The characters are excellent. But the translation sucks ass. <<less

I try my best. I really do but the translation really suck and it didnt work well with me as I am a forgetful person and couldnt keep up with the changes for the names. I honestly want to read it til the end tho cuz the plot is interesting and people say that translation is good around ch 70. I will give up for now and hope there is a better translation for the old ch in the future.

List of Self-sacrificial MC's I love with all my heart and want to choke at the same time:

1. Cale Henituse

2. Kim Dokja

... more>> 3. Cho Euisin

God, I love Cho Euisin (MC) so much. He's like everybody's dependable older brother. If you have a problem, go to him and he will give you solid advice or give you extra courage. He will come save you if he knew that you're in a situation where you need help. He's not like those OP MC's who doesn't give a sh*t about anyone anymore just because they became OP/famous (or become generally dimissive *cough*Sung Jinwoo*cough*). He actually wants everyone (those who deserve it) to become happy, even if they were just his acquaintances. He doesn't kill nilly-willy, but that doesn't mean that he's a softie either (he subjects his enemies to torture instead what a chad).
Spoiler

Maybe it's because he acknowledges, more than anyone, how important life is, as someone who previously died of cancer.

[collapse]
He has traumas and it doesn't get magically solved in one chapter, he actually works on it by facing it. I could talk about this man all day and this review box won't be enough for it, that's how much I love him.

Then, there's his classmates and allies. His classmates and other supporting characters actually have character developments on their own.
Spoiler

Even Hwang Jiho (the guy next to him in the cover; also the school's negligent Principal and a literal god) knows that he f*cked up and seeks to improve the school and his interpersonal relationships. That might've been because he was depressed and could not give a sh*t anymore (there were four tigers including him, one died and the other two were punished and so he became alone for centuries), but thanks to Euisin fixing things, he now has many things to care and protect and he's doing so rather vigorously (he's going to be the first one to choke Euisin out of his self-sacrificing tendencies lmao)

[collapse]
They all have their own circumstances they're struggling with and maybe due to that, they're very understanding and empathetic.

The villains are either A. Really bad guys that needs to be smited from the face of the earth or B. Became bad guys because circumstances made them so (which you could sympathize with).

Overall, this novel is easily a 5/5, the translations could be improved (PLEASE IMPROVE EVEN AN EDITOR WOULD BE NICE PLEASE I'LL GIVE KO-FI FOR THE LOVE OF GOD; how to apply as an editor because I totally could shelve a few hours in my busy day for the sake of editing this masterpiece) and well, I tried to mtl this once and it was 50x more awful than the translations. Even understanding one sentence was a struggle. <<less

To New Readers- READ FROM WAFFLES FIRST!

This will help you get a general idea about terms/events/names and help understand the further chapters available on NovelMultiverse better. Translation at NM is... wonky. The first 75 or so chapters were nearly fully MTL and then it improved for a while before plummeting back to cryptic machine language around 115. Then it improves again around 150....🤥 It's an arduous ride. One that not many appreciate or got the patience for.

Well the story itself is a solid 4/5⭐ I like the world-building and plot.... more>> And LOVE the MC!! This is the 'kind MC' type that I like. He's that smart big brother who keep toiling away silently in the background to make sure his family/friends remain safe sound and happy. The fiercely protective sort that doesn't mind getting his hands dirty to protect the people he like. And like all my favorite MCs he too have that accursed habit of disregarding his own self for the safety of his friends. Oh and did I mention that he's a BIIIIG dog lover?!! The sort that buys out the entire store cause they can't decide what to get as their pupper/doggo will look great in everything! Yup~ the best sort!

And even tho there's no romance for MC there's nothing stopping anyone from building ships!! And there are just so many possible ships!!! Some of them are real with the rest having varying probability of becoming real~

Spoiler

• OrgML, Joo Su-hyukx OrgFL An Da-In. they be crushing on eachother so hard that everyone around them just try and help them get together

• Genius painter with social anxiety, Min Green x Song Dae-seok, the satellite otaku with social anxiety.

• The blue violinist, Kwon Jae-in x The Butterfly Lady Na Bi-ryeong, who wants to stop the storm instead with the flapping of her wings🦋

• Red Tiger x Ungnyeo of Sorrows (Bear clan) they were married and even had a child.

• A 5000yr old half tiger-half bear troublemaker child, Kim Shin-rok x Yong Je-gun, the cyan dragon with weird smile and hobbies

• Dedicated master nagger Jang Nam-wook x master of bad dad jokes and unpunny puns, Do Shi-hoo

• The orgML's cousin, the reserved, cold President type Joo Su-gyeom x Oh Hye-ji, the one the family elders were trying to set orgML (JSH) up with.

• The Blue Jade Poet who teaches a bunch of obsessive fans students, Jegal Jae-geol x Hong Kyu-bin, His first student and the sly team leader of the Player Association's Team 1.

•And finally My favorite ship-

MC x White Tiger!!

They've got such a old married couple vibe going and the rest of the gang are all just their kids and siblings😌

[collapse]

Imma go MTL the rest cause things have just started getting interesting!

_____________ _____________ ___________

Well... MTL follows a 30-30-30 split. 30% understood, 30% inferred and 30% pure assumption. The rest, the unmentionable 10% is oohlalalaooleloo. pure gibberish. Especially the names
Spoiler

Moonlight Tax, Thanksgiving, Lunar New Year, Glass, Stone/Marble, Army, Emporer/Empress, Zegul Jagger, Public Hearing, Scratch Girl, Screaming Girl, Holy See, The Fever...😅😭

My brain's gone into overdrive deciphering who it corresponds to

The story is fun but it was difficult to keep up in the beginning. As the story progressed, the more it became interesting but there's so many useless talks or conversation written in the story. The MC knew everything literally, he's the only one who knows the world. You might feel like there's not enough explanation in the middle of the development that's happening but the author always solved it eventually. The MC is like the apostle of happiness who always intervenes to solve the problem, he's a man who's... more>> trying to bring happiness to his friends and beloved ones. I agree with the Korean readers that the title does not match with the story. It's the most uninteresting title for a novel who's main theme is close to gag comedy.

The advantage is the proper harmony or balance of cliche and cliche plot twist, and the carefully designed worldview. Although the story itself is full of cliche plot, it matched the genre comedy. The sentence is concise. And the world building and the way author explained the story is really good. <<less

Seriously, the plot is promising. I also like the characters' development. However, the translation has ruined it all. To be completely honest, a masterpiece has gone down in flames just because of a shitty translation.

There are many Koren words that I can't understand, yet there has not even once been any footnote or explanation.

I leave this novel with 4 stars since I find the story promising and amusing. I just don't want to offend the writer who wrote such a novel.

First, the translation sucks. Like, reallyyyy sucks. But that got better after around ch70. Hey, the name changed so many times I thought they got some new clone or something.

Okay, anyway. In the first five chapters, it's kinda confusing if you're not really into this modern-isekai-type. But if you focus on the story (or the MC minds/theories he blabbered as narations) rather than the battle actions, you can guess what the stories before those first five chapters. The translation got more f*cked around ch 40 because they keep changing the... more>> characters alias/name/ability in one chapter.... ya, that much.

Spoiler

it's hilarious to see Jaegal-Jaegol name changed to so many names like Zegal Zherrgul or something lol sorry. And the alias they have as a player not translanted properly, they're just changing those long +3 words alias to the romaji.

[collapse]

Oh, ya, thank you for fixing the translations to a better one ;D but you better edit the chapters when you have the time, translators. I hope more people can read this with a proper understanding because the plot is interesting and amazing, also here's some peek about the MC

Spoiler

MC overpowered but he sincerely want to change his 'playable characters' original fate. And, the MC keep reminding me that he IS INSIDE of a game so I hope he can have a proper relationship with them as a person (proper human) rather than as his loved characters from game T.T

Everyone, a big applause for Waffles, the translator, who is making the translation legible. NovelMultiverse really did this one dirty, to the point I'm not sure they did any editing after MTL-ing it.

The story is interesting so far, but I'm sure it's only just beginning from the point I'm currently at. I'd normally wait a while longer before ranking 5 stars for a long haul story like this unless the opening really amazed me, but I know a lot of poor reviews were made due to the previous translator, and... more>> thought I should make up a bit for that. I'm also excited about the lack of a harem tag, romance tag, and romantic subplot tag that tends to drag stories like this down.

Looking forward to updates from Waffles! <<less

It just seems that the translator (NovelMultiverse) didn't do the best job TLing, although it is being TL'd at a very a quick speed. The translation is dry in tone and the TL didn't bother to do much beyond direct translation, so it reads similarly to MTL. Names can be inconsistent and grammar is often off, making the story a lot harder to understand. Thus, my review may be somewhat off.

Premise Summary:

... more>>
Spoiler

The MC, a terminal lung cancer patient, dies and transmigrates into the urban fantasy, school life mobile game he'd been addicted to for 10 years, a game with a huge budget that still failed miserably in the market due to unbalanced gameplay and bugs, among other things.

He becomes a just-graduated middle school student (KR high school freshmen are 16-17 I think) taking his high school entrance exam to get to the main setting of said mobile game, a prestigious high school for professional superhuman ability users (who are referred to as "players").

[collapse]

Review for the actual novel: around a 4/5, probably

Our MC gets some pretty high-ranked skills and a game interface as a cheat, as well as some perks from his progress in the game before he died and transmigrated. He's a goody-two-shoes that eliminates crime and stuff in secret, so if you'd prefer a more edgy MC, this is not your novel. <<less

Story: 4.5/5

Translation: I read this on NovelMultiverse. Average 2/5, but would give a 4.5/5 for the latest translator. I can't speak for waffles.

Great plot, interesting characters, quite a few moving pieces. I would highly recommend this story to anyone who is capable of slogging through fairly long periods of nearly unreadable machine translation.

The host site seems to employ translators to translate each story, and for Ex Rank, they change the translator multiple times. The translation is okay at the beginning, but degrades pretty rapidly in the middle before improving... more>> again around ~ch65-70. Translation problems include: 1) terminology changes; 2) inconsistent naming; 3) mixing up first-person and third-person pronouns, forcing the reader to rely on context clues to piece together who & what is being referred to; 4) awkward sentence flow.

That said, if you can get through the translation, the story itself is quite interesting and engaging. The premise is fairly standard: the MC, Jo Eu-shin, was the only player to clear a certain infamously shitty game to the very end, thus witnessing the tragic end of all the characters he was attached to. When he died, he transmigrated into the world of the game. Jo Eu-shin is driven by a simple but effective motivation: to save all the characters he got attached to from meeting their tragic ends.

While Jo Eu-shin attains powerful allies very early on, the story is still interesting to me because of its large cast and the slowly uncovering conspiracies. Jo Eu-shin's knowledge lets him prevent certain incidents, but by doing so he becomes entrenched in a larger overarching plot by an unknown higher being whose goals in engineering these incidents is what led to the end of the world in the game. But what does this being want exactly? And does it have something to do with the entity who brought Jo Eu-shin to this world in hopes that he could intervene?

If you enjoy the typical sort of transmigration action-suspense story, then this one will probably appeal to you, too.

Other notes:

    • The game's genre is "soft apocalypse" -- specifically, it is a school setting in a modern-day Korea in a world that is constantly under threat by the random dungeons that open up all over the world. To combat this threat, the Player's Association gathers Players (people with special abilities) to fight off the threat from the other unknown worlds.
    • No romance with the MC (as of yet), no harem (as of yet), but the author has a tendency to pair off the side characters.
    • Jo Eu-shin acts maturely according to his mental age. One running joke is that after doing some good deeds, his persona attains a nickname that he finds highly embarrassing because he has long passed the age where he thinks having that kind of flashy name for himself is cool. He is prone to being extremely biased in favor of "his playable characters." Well, he's the guy crazy enough to want to stop the end of the world for their sake after all...
    • Because Jo Eu-shin is concerned with attaining happiness for his favorite characters, the story spends quite a bit of time focusing on daily life, interpersonal relationships, Jo Eu-shin's interactions with his friends, and the emotional development of the side characters. This style of storytelling may not be for everyone.
    • So far, all the introduced cast have interweaving relationships with each other, so they are all relevant and their roles in the story continue to develop. Initially, each character gets one or two memorable traits, so as to make them memorable to the reader; however, as their roles in the story expand, they also gain more depth. I enjoy the sheer number of moving pieces. I've copied my personal (and slightly spoiler-y) guide to the characters introduced thus far below:

I really like this.

Long story short, this novel is about a gamer named Jo Eui-Shin who played the very unlikable game for around ten years. So far he was the only gamers known who played that game (kinda like how Dokja's the only one who read Way of Survival). In the end of his life (because of cancer), the game was update for the last time, but the ending was not satisfied Eui-Shin. He then died with a little regret because he can't save his 'playable characters' in that game.
When he woke up, he realized that he was suddenly in that very game he played this whole years. In... more>> the very first chapter nonetheless. So he thought, it was his chance to change the game plot and save the characters he loved.

.

The plot is smooth (though, a little bit slow) and power system is quiet easy to understand. I like how this novel is more focus on other characters in the POV of MC, Jo Eui-Shin, while at the same time the readers are also given clues here and there about the MC himself. Every supporting character has their own importance to the story. I can say almost all of the characters is not being left behind by the author. Like, the one character was showed up in early chapters, then they never seen again, but dozens chapters later, they are mentioned to actually drive the plot 'till now. And all of more important characters, especially Grade One Class Zero (since they are the main characters) have their share amount of portion to shine.

Jo Eui-Shin, the MC, is also very interesting. He's kind, smart, good-hearted, and always cherished his 'playable characters'. Though, he can be silly sometimes, especially in front of something adorable, but that's one of his charms.
He's not naïve, but not ruthless either. He can beat up his enemies just fine, but when it came to killing, he always hesitated to do so. Before this life, he was a normal human without any exposure to dangerous situation like that, anyway, so that's understandable. That's why in the end of battles it's either the enemy ran away, or being held/killed by someone else.
His role is more like a mastermind. He planned everything, calculate any probability, while guide his friends to do their own roles perfectly so they can level-up. Though, he's not alone. He needs his closest allies (especially Hwang Jiho) to discuss and execute the plan. He can't do it by himself.

Another factor I like this novel is the mystery and question I had about all of it. Just when one question is answered, other questions came. No, actually it goes like answering one question with another question. So, when reader finally knows something, they face with another mystery once again.
Jo Eui-Shin is also a mystery himself, but for other characters in the novel. The readers already know about his skills 'Player Trajectory' and 'Destiny' which actually very rare in mention as too good to be true. But how he hides them from everyone is very fun to read, especially from Hwang Jiho who always full of curiosity. Well, for this, I'm rooting for Jiho to crack a mystery called Eui-Shin. I wanna see Jiho strip Eui-Shin naked from his secrets.

.

Anyway, for you who hesitate or stop reading because of translation, don't worry. The translation is getting better and the previous bad chapters are already fixed. Though, the teams need time to translate new chapters. But hey! It's fun to re-read it since we keeps got new clues linked to what happened in earlier chapters.

.

I'm sorry I'm mumbling alot. I just like this novel. <<less

The story is really good, however the translation is not.

The names change so many times and the pronouns are all over the place.

Although it gets much better for a few chapters, it goes back to how it was.

The storyline is interesting. The characters are written well and I'm very curious about the other students in class 1-0. The MC is OP in the sense that he pretty much knows everything that's going to happen and can prevent them. He's smart, except when it comes to Snare he becomes an idiot...... more>> It's a bit annoying but also funny.

Overall, a 4.5/5 for the plot and 2/5 for the translation. <<less

A promising novel about fixing the story of a brutally difficult game with nothing but bad endings. The MC is likable and believable. However, please be sure to only read the chapters put out by our lord and savior Waffles. You would genuinely be better off reading mtls than reading the, let's be generous and say subpar translation from novel multiverse

The only reason I'm rating this 3 stars is because the translation quality isn't really good at all. You're able to read it, but it's very difficult because it's not the same as reading an MTLed novel, but it's not up to the quality you would expect from a properly translated novel so it's throwing me off.

As for the actual contents of the novel, it's very similar to The Novel's Extra, except he's transported into a game instead of a novel. And he's not the writer or developer, just an... more>> addict. So if you enjoyed The Novel's Extra then you'll likely find this novel to be somewhat enjoyable at the very least. <<less

This novel is one of the best novel I have read with such well written characters and plot. It was slow in the beginning but it become interesting and addictive as the chapters goes. It could have become one of the greatest novel but mtl translations ruined it. It has the potential to become a masterpeice

To all the future readers who wish to install viruses and trojan horses on their pc's. I recommend you go and read on the Multiverse site that doesn't let you read without ad-block, and without ad-block you get viruses, a really nice vibe overall from ret*rded people who live in a dung infested cave using a 30 year old laptop.

As for the story, if the other reviews are correct then go on and read it on the Waffles site. While it might also have viruses (haven't read on that one... more>> yet) hopefully the editing and translation is at least up to par with fanfiction level authors. <<less

The story is awesome. The mystery elements are really well written. The characters are well written with diverse and interesting personalities. They undergo development too. His classmates are also very nice people who have thier own problems. They encourage and support each other, help them solve their problems. It feels nice to have someone to talk to and cheer you on, right? The interactions between characters is also nice to read.

The main character Jo Eushin is really lovable (I am literally fangirling of him, Cale Henituse and Han Sooyoung).... more>> He cares about the characters and wasn't like "this is just a very real-like game. I won't get involved." He tries his best to make things right and see the happy ending.

Spoiler

makes sense since he played it for years despite it being a failed game. He has a bond with the characters he raised/leveled up with hard work. You can't just abandon them especially after seeing that they are all real.

[collapse]

He cherishes life and doesn't kill anyone. But he isn't soft to his enemies either. He isn't OP either. Well... he does have a OP skill with some limits but he doesn't completely depend on it. He uses his own skill
Spoiler

Use of all things

[collapse]
to deal with many cases. He doesn't try to do everything himself either and takes help from others when needed.

The only problem is the average and poor translating. TL was good until some 50 or 60 chapters then it went down all of a sudden. Then a new one picked it up after some chapters and it went back on track and became readable. But it has gotten better from around chapter 120 since another translator picked it up. The translators keep changing! You see some korean terms in between which are kept as it is for better effect which are OK after getting used to it like 'Gwanglim' for 'abilities or skill'. When new translators pick it up they change it or find it hard to follow making some mistakes.

Overall it is a really good novel worth reading/ rereading. Give it a try and read atleast the first ten chapters before deciding for yourself. <<less

This seems like a genuinely good story, but the translation is atrocious. Things happen with no preamble, a lot of things don't make a bit of sense, character names change slightly all the time. It's a shame this WN isn't getting the treatment it deserves.

Edit: Starting at chapter 23 the school name and characters names have changed for no discernable reason, wtf? Also the tenses have all changes to a mix of 3rd and 2nd person?

... more>>

Edit 2: As of chapter 53, character names have changed once again for no reason. It's such a shame this is being translation by such an incompetent person/group of people. I'm starting to think this would be better if it was purely an edited MTL.

Dropping this at 56. The translation has gotten so bad I can no longer tell what's happening or who it's happening to. Shame. <<less
