This felt like a history text book disguised as a generic hunter/gate novel.

The MC died during an accident in a raid, and got send back to the Japanese Colonial Korea, except that place also have monsters and super powers.

The MC is a slightly patriotic guy who lacks a distinct character. He is not s*upid, but he's not very intelligent either. He's past life experience only helps with powers and monsters, but doesn't help in his normal judgement. And he also seems to really like to slap people.

The two main heroines/harem... more>> members can be summarized into "a Japanese young lady who isn't racist and is interested in the MC because he's strong" and "a nationalistic Korean girl who likes to speak in ancient Korean". The other side characters felt one dimensional, and I feel like they are just there to make the novel not seem empty. Sometimes the characters even act in ways that does not make sense or just simply felt forced.

A lot of the earlier chapters are used to set the world building and characters, but even after the earlier chapters, nothing interesting seems to be happening at all. The plot is less focused on hunters and gates and mainly focused on racism and discrimination. But the thing is, the racism and discrimination stuffs that happened in the novel felt weak, as the MC often got saved before he got into the real trouble. And there does not seem to be much of an overarching plot.

This is a pretty good novel to read if you want to learn some Korean history that happened in the Japanese Colonial Era, except with some monsters and magical elements added in. <<less

So basically the MC is from the typical dungeon monster era and when he died he wake up during the Japanese Colonial era except that there is dungeon and monster at that time so parallel world? Idk about Japan-Korea history but it probably almost correct. If you want to read new kind of dungeon monster novel maybe this is for you. Well at least its fun for mee

More of an already rest the rest and I'm bored read. Dunegons and shit, you know the drill.

However, it has constant jap bad, I'm KOREANNNN shit. Like, almost every chapter, very annoying and adds nothing to the story. Might be fine if it's your first rodeo, just gets tiresome reading it across several different series.

Really interesting novel, the setting is one that I’ve never seen before but with familiar elements. It has the hunter dungeon background but set up during the Japanese occupation of Korea. I’m enjoying both the story and learning a bit more about a part of history I never knew about.

so this one is a bit weird il admit, its in colonial era japan which is interesting and unique but sadly I don't think its enough to gloss over the parts that bug me with this novel.

to be honest at points its just plain boring, I mean there are exposition dumps and I just cant seem to imagine it in my head.

its a lot like a different reviewer said that its like a text book.

now I do think that it has potential so I will give it a good score... more>> because I want to see it succeed so maybe it just isn't my cup of tea and it might be yours.


interesting world premise.

Maybe harem?


kinda boring for me and unimaginative. <<less

A very interesting story, likable characters, etc. The plot is nice, and the character development is okay as well.
