With a hideous visage they came to be known as goblins.

I read some of this one about 2 years ago but didn't remember why I stopped reading. After reading 30 chapters in (forcing myself over half the way) it makes sense why I stopped reading, I'll just list some of the problems I have with it:

  1. The strength levels are inconsistent - something that was easily beaten is suddenly hard
  2. The requirements for leveling up/evolving are inconsistent, to fit the author's half-assed plot
  3. The MC doesn't have any interesting personality traits,
    Spoiler

    he struggles with some being a beast and with some gods trying to control him, but that doesn't do much for the characters

    [collapse]
  4. The story just doesn't make much sense in general, the author clearly had no idea of where he was going with it and didn't have the skills to make a story that is coherent in any way.
It's one of those novels where you can keep on listing flaws, but going on would be a waste of time, just like this novel.

Starts out as a copy of Re:Monster but less edgy, finds its own feet while tapering off the reliance on hackneyed skill systems, turns into a story consisting largely of shonen battle scenes, and falls apart in the war with humans when every character with a name starts being spared in battles for no reason. Also, the MC has turned into an idiot.

I don't know what got into the author at the start of the human war, but from that point it's been frustrating to read.

Some might say this is not Re-monster and completely different and they are right, but the guy definitely have read re-monster and decide to rip off the story by telling the plot differently and at the same time stealing ideas from re-monster. So much for being original. Is just kinda like a improve version of the original work. While the story is different from Re-monster, it just as boring as that one. Maybe less of the dairy way of writing with days and stuff, but still really boring. Both are... more>> about goblin kingdom building. What's the point of it? If you have read 1 of them, you can skip the other one. Reading both will only get you annoyed. <<less

they truly treat war like it's nothing unless an important character dies. An example this

Spoiler

There's this girl called pale in the story. She does everything she could to go against the goblin army. Her side was losing until she comes into help, what couldve ended very quickly ended up lasting longer because of her. She calls the goblins savages, but ignores the elves enslaving the demihumans, instead she keeps going down on the chief until they betray her in the end. The main character doesn't care because she is hot and because she's a good strategist but when they have her in custody she's already useless because she is now blind, though he says he cares about the horde he does not punish her for prolonging the battle nor does he do anything to punish the people going against him, like the lives of the people who fought did not matter.

Keep in mind she has this deep as connection to the wind god and is suppose to be nice. Truly flawed how she didn't give a damn about the demihumans that were ens*aved. She did not get punish for almost killing MC, he's the goblin king for f sake. I hated her so much throughout the elf unification wars because she got away with so much shitting on the mc's head

Now that I am calm all that I can say about this novel is that it is disapointing and it wasted a lot of it's potential.

The author chose to lesser the development for some reason and gave up or forgot a lot of things that he established in the start; he even went as far as crippling some characters that would make things interesting.

The first chapter was very interesting. This story is very unique and interesting. Most of the time you read about the MC is a human and you only see the humans point of view but seeing the view of a monster is nice. Read just one chapter and it hooked me in, going to continue reading.

Reviewed at chapter 16. So this novel has a interesting concept.. Our MC is a goblin. "Oh so its a re:monster rip off then!" you might say, well no not really as the two has different goals and.. Powers. Anyways the story is feeling a little bit rushed, but it's interesting none-the-less.

I do recommend this if you like remonster.. (Go figure right?) =P or slime tensei

The setting looks a bit like Re:Monster at the beginning but it does not develop as well as it should have. The author seems to push for quantity rather than quality as the chapters continue tbh. The main character turns out to be incompetent and blindly following human practices and mindset, even though it would have been illogical and very dangerous to do so. It totally strayed from the calm protagonist/ strategist route. There are many dull side stories and things get even more boring later. Not really a good... more>> novel to invest your time in, unless you have too much spare time. <<less

I think some people lack the understanding and/or ability to read nuance in some writing styles. This novel Though I have only read to Volume 2, was a great read!

Like honestly one of the best binge reads I have had in a while. I like the fact that this character was once human and that the author and the story is telling us that he is no longer human! Like literally every other reincarnation you get you have some s*upid fans who say "oh it's harem in that world its... more>> normal" but the author never said that it was normal to the character, the character never said that his psyche was impacted by a world change. Fanatic readers love to make assumptions, and rightfully so things are open to interpretation, however there is no justification in that just speculation.

In this novel (at least volume 1) I like that there is very little room for speculation, as the foreshadowing and storytelling is leading you on a direct path. There is no question that this is a reincarnation novel, but there is no question that our main character IS NOT in body nor in mind HUMAN. The more the story progresses the more I begin to realize just how unique this this and honestly it is the closest I have ever seen one fo these novels come to a western style of story telling. Impressed. <<less

Goblin kingdom has interesting premise and world building. The plot is not just success after success but there are set backs. So there are a lot of good elements. I recommend to try it out. However, it suffers from having too many named characters with little impact on the story and somewhat repetitive battle scenes.

This is a great story with great world building and characters. It is essentialy motivated by chinese novels to the point that it really feels like reading a xuanhuan novel, but with a certain japanese touch to it. The main character is great but not overpowered, which is often the problem with japanese novels. I am glad that main character needs to work to get where he is. As far as re:monster similarities go, aside from both characters being goblins and kings, I see no further similarities. This novel is... more>> far superior in pretty much everything. Re:monster is just standard cliche isekai in comparison. The only problem I might have with this novel is that it centers around goblins, and that is because it feels unrealistic that the state of goblins was so bad before the MC appeared, since after evolving once their intelligence is already almost at the level of humans and even before the MC came they had a functioning society, taking in consideration how easily they can evolve (MC and everyone evolved to their limits in barely 2-3 years). And after that you just forget that they are goblins completely by how humanlike they are. I would have liked, if author used the setting of beastmen or elves, but I realise that I am nittpicking at this point. 5/5 great novel <<less

boring and simple minded written story, dropped at early chapters and dont care if it become interesting later. Same old story with reincarnated as monster but this story is probibly worst one among them. Pretty 2d world w/o depth.

No depth in characters, no depth in worldbuilding, even god itself is not have depth. A story of 12 years old neet boy's view. Don't recommend, dont waste your precious time at this one.

OK I actually read to the up to date version of this LN/WN (never understood the deference but whatever)

When you are comparing the books of RE:monster and Goblin kingdom (GK) there are undoubtedly some very similar themes going on. But unlike RE:monster where the MC friends rank up together almost at the same time or within 10 to 20 days (same as chapters for those who read Re:monster). The MC in GK is pretty much a loner from the start to the present chapter which he levels by himself... more>> and is way ahead in terms of abilities and power.

What made me like this somewhat better then RE: monster IS THE DAMN LACK OF DETAILS WHICH THE AUTHOR LOVED TO USE if you want to describe a chair in monster its overly detailed I AM NOT LIEING HERE PEOPLE <<less
