Fate, a gatekeeper who had been working for the castle, is beset by a few burdens.

It is the constant hunger attacks triggered by a skill he had obtained upon birth. A useless skill, it only serves to make him hungrier; however, unbeknownst to him, it has a concealed ability.

On one day, having killed a thief sneaking into the castle, he finally noticed its true power.

A skill that feeds upon the very soul of the subjects he kills, taking away all their powers. And thus, finally, his constant hunger had been satiated for the first time.

With just that, the man who has been treated like a pile of trash slowly started raising his head. Having exceeded the concept of levels, he strikes fear with his terror-like strength, earning him the nickname…

First of all, the translation from Nega Translation is passable. It's very simple and the prose doesn't exactly flow well but it's certainly readable and their work is appreciated.

On the story itself, it's pretty entertaining albeit very simple itself and full of cliches. Character that goes from loser to overpowered, talking sword, a love interest out of his league, skill steal ability and the seven deadly sins. All checked. Overall, the story doesn't offer much in the way of new ideas or twists on old favorites. It's just more of... more>> the same.

Beyond the simplicity, the story moves very quickly. It largely moves from one fight-scene to another with little build-up, character interaction or growth. It's a very superficial story. There's not much depth there. But that's not the worst thing. Not everything needs to be complex. If you are interested in a quick-read with good entertainment value and little need to invest much though into, it's just fine. The illustrations available are very nice and certainly make the story seem cooler than it actually is. <<less

This still has around 14 chapters by the time I wrote this, so I won't be rating it, but here's what I think:
Grammar: 4/5
... more>>

Fairly Nice, Only minimal grammatical errors

Story: 5/5

The concept of 'Ability Steal' isn't new to me, and I see this everywhere (not literally tho) and the concept of the story isn't original. But the new thing to me was that Greed (The black sword) can change form by consuming Fate's Power, restarting to the time when they first met. Not making Fate very OP like most of the MC's with ability steal power. That enough balances everything out.


Its mostly full of killing, some story with Roxy, and revenge as far as I know

Another one of those MCs getting forbidden skill, power, equipment (whatever) that lead into whole chapters of how strong he is, only to be stomped over and over again.

There are way too many foreshadowing, mysteries and plot holes to the point that it is aggravating to continue the read. And the interaction between MC and his weapon is quite stale, seriously did the author watch/read the Zero no Tsukaima's series or something.

While the translations and grammar were a bit, meh, the overall idea was easy enough to understand. One can muddle through it.

Yet another MC that had a sh*t life and was used/abused by the powerful becomes super OP at blazing fast speeds. Predictable to a fault, nonsensical in it's pacing and interactions, all the while being so contrived I hurt just reading it.

At some point I started making a game of seeing how many tropes the author was going to put in here, lets just say he almost hit triple... more>> digits and leave it at that. I kind of got the vague notion that the author saw Seven Deadly Sins anime and brainstormed this out, I'd kind of like to know what drugs he was on at that time too.

Honestly, I don't even feel like writing how bad most of this actually was, even so, I did read just about everything available to it so perhaps I was hooked enough to say it wasn't the worst thing I've ever read. Certainly dropped plenty of other titles way before the 10 chapter mark, but that's not exactly a glowing review now is it. <<less

The combat is repetitive and boring, yet the novel focuses on it. It's practically the same fight every time. (A mob for the MC to power up off of followed by a boss.)

The romance is going nowhere.

The mystery (of the world) is going nowhere.

The MC doesn't develop outside becoming skilled in combat, and other characters aren't focused on at all.

It's an interesting concept that fails to be actualized.

The story is pretty fast, straightforward, and simple.

Because of that there're many holes here and there, like no proper power standardization, he has many skills but I don't even know which ones are active type and which ones are passive type because he barely ever uses them, the weapon is simply imbalanced, moreover the use status percentage as the fuel to use its skills makes the power balance more vague.

well, to put it simply, this story is good enough to accompany you killing time.

The premise is interesting but there is almost no world building so we still have no real context for the MC's abilities, there is a huge amount of convenient coincidences, and the romance is just awful. Maybe it gets better from here.

It's a good novel, but... IMO.... there aretoo many redundant details such as, "greed talk to me with <mind telepathic> skill.. greed said to me with <mind telepathic> skill.. and so on and so forth..." 80% of the times when MC talks with greed, and lack of emotional expression when MC talks, I read it like MC just talk in monotonic voice, and his dependant of greed is still not less than when he get the sword, maybe it's because MC can just 'eat' others souls to grow but idk,... more>> he should start to grow some spine.. <<less

its an good novel. At first the MC was just a weak character in a world full of human scums with a useless skill which only makes him hungry but when he realizes its true worth he instantly gets strong and powerfull but there are still lot of guys which are more powerfull or on the same level. The skill is great but also a double edged sword which might devour his body if uncontrolled. Also he is madly in love with this nobel girl which helped him when he... more>> was weak but beacause of his social status and power cant approach her. But the girl soon fells into conspiracies and people trying to harm her so he becomes her silent guardian but even after saving her and getting power and social status he still can't approach her due to various reasons. Overall up to now he is trying to make the world a place where the weak can also be happy. <<less

The story is somewhat interesting, but the MC is beta and stupid. The worldbuilding is not really there and there is no character development. I would rate this novel higher if it was not for too much drama. MC is making stupid decisions things just happens because they must happen this way. Overall I don't really like where the story is going, but it might end up being good in the end. It's just many of the struggles in the story didn't have to be there or be that dramatic.

The... more>> story starts fine but gets more irritating as it progresses. No one ever tells MC anything until it's too late. One of the most common dialogs in the story:

- "someone says something seemingly important to MC, but stops half-way and does not finish the thought"
MC: What are saying (what did you mean)
- Nothing, forget about it.

At least once a chapter this would happen. Gets kinda annoying as you keep reading <<less

It is good for what it is. Although the seven deadly sins thing isn’t necessarily a new concept, the novel makes it more unique by making it so that not all the sins are humanoid things. Like the sword for example.

You’d expect for a guy who can steal the stats of the sh*t he kills to become strong very fast. Which he does, but he has an extra burden to carry that is greed (the sword). So although he gets stronger, he needs to give his stats to greed just... more>> to keep him. I totally agree with his decision to keep the sword. I don’t understand how people can be so dumb as to not understand why you’d need a good weapon over good stats. Yknow a sentient sword that can turn into other weapons like a bow and a weapon that won’t break, ever, I think is a pretty good trade off for the stats he got easily by killing a few goblins.

The funny thing is that people expect this novel to be especially unique and rate it in that as well. The fantasy genre like this one is so oversaturated already that no matter what the author writes, it cannot be unique. The magic will be the same, the races will be the same and so on.

The characters are interesting in on themselves. They are a bit cliche but they are good. They aren’t bland and get enough development. So far at least.

Of course I can’t completely judge it, I mean there are only a few chapters still but so far it is a fun read. Although I wouldn’t say it is amazing or anything like that. I think it is something you can read, while travelling or relaxing. Whatever you do with your free time. <<less
