Heroic Death System

Description

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

“I curse you to never die in peace!”

Thus, Shang Ke started a never-ending cycle of constantly throwing away his miserable life.

He would always show himself as a martyr while letting others cry over his death.

It was because of a woman’s curse that Shang Ke was hit by a car and turned into a human vegetable. This led to him becoming bound by an unlucky system in which he was cursed to die. The most unfortunate part was that he never cheated on anyone’s feelings. The reason for why he was cursed by a woman was because of a guy named Qi Chen. Qi Chen was a ladies man, and he would always use Shang Ke as an excuse to break up with any woman that he was with. As a result, Shang Ke was always blamed for the breakups. Since then, the main character could only be forced to cross into different worlds. He would thus experience for himself, the hero’s “thrill”.

HE, 1v1

The translation was excellent. There was no typo and no accidentally wrote the wrong names. The footnotes were easy to understand and Chinese words that didn't make sense in English were translated nicely to accommodate English readers.

Now onto the story itself:

  1. The Main Character's character development wasn't bad.
    Spoiler

    Shang Ke was very flexible and absorbed information easily like a mushroom. He went from a normal person who was afraid of pain and death to the badass main character who OP-ed out even the main lead in most worlds, but these developments were written well, with explained step by step that flowed naturally. His love feeling development wasn't forced or sudden after a one-time papapa. He actually tried to resist and observe his man first before he went on to purposely seduce his man in latter worlds.

    [collapse]
    This character was very interesting to read and his humor was also nicely written.
  2. The Main Lead had no character development. He was simply a walking d*ck with a working brain. Wouldn't recommend this man to any of my friends.
    Spoiler

    Even though he was the reincarnation of Chen Xiao, his personality in every world was different. But the moment he met Shang Ke, he suddenly became the scummy main lead who only thinks with his dick. Main Lead even become more scummy after he papapa with Shang Ke!

    [collapse]
    This Main Lead might irritate some readers who disliked forceful character.
  3. Spoiler

    Wu Du! The second love interest that Shang Ke never look at so actually this character wasn't a love rival to the Main Lead. His sudden appearance as Qi Chen was very unnecessary and easily overlooked. As the person who cursed the Main Character and Main Lead, he really had nothing else to do, no use at all, and whatever happened to him after he cursed Chen Xiao wasn't interesting nor important. Wu Du might also be reincarnated together with MC and ML in several worlds, for example as Love God Neil or Zeke, but it wasn't important to the plot. This cannon fodder character was too useless.

    [collapse]
  4. The story was nicely written. The plotflowed naturally, although the time skip was weird sometimes. The most amazing thing was how the author put a whole world-building in short chapters. The comedy was cute, especially the System and MC's interactions.
The most important thing when reading this story was to remember that it was just a story. No matter how impossible the world was, no matter how weird the papapa was, it's a story and the warning tags were presented up there. If you don't like it, that's you.

Spoiler

Two tags that were overlooked: Somnophilia and Necrophilia (Shang Ke papapa with Di Kui who was a zombie, a very much dead walking corpse who still looked handsome.)

I really liked this novel at the beginning. However, the ML is extremely overbearing and oftentimes doesn’t care whether or not the MC consents. I guess that’s the one issue I have throughout the series. My favorite novel with a similar premise was Quickly Wear the Face of the Devil. For the most part, the MC of that novel eagerly consents even though the ML is overbearing and assertive, meaning boundaries that shouldn’t be crossed are not crossed. I want to say that my second favorite is Heroic Death System,... more>> but I can’t. The reason is because of the last arc.

Spoiler

In the last arc the ML escalates. He directly r*pes the MC multiple times. And it’s not just the, “not now, omg you’re too much” kind of thing. It’s 1) ML breaks into the MC’s apartment while he’s asleep and r*pes him and the MC wakes up and actually fights back because he doesn’t know who TF is RAPING him. And 2) ML is jealous or something over MC and doesn’t want to listen to what he’s saying so while the MC is trying to reason with him he r*pes MC and doesn’t take no or stop as an answer. The second might not be 100% the exact scenario I described but it’s probably very close. Then, the worst part of it? Because I could accept this plot as being part of the ML’s mental issues in that arc, if the r*pe was addressed seriously and not brushed aside. But it was. It was totally brushed aside. The MC is like “you know that wasn’t cool right?” And the ML is like whatever. So the MC just ignores him for a little while, and the ML thinks about how he just wants to r*pe him anyway. And then, while this is happening ML’s as*hole family kidnaps MC and dumps him in a foreign country with nothing and allows the ML to assume that he ran away, so he becomes even more obsessive. And the MC is like ok cool I’ll just lead him on a wild goose chase, maybe that’ll teach him not to r*pe me. And all in all, it just was... such a poor way to end the series, I was so disappointed. I guess the only good thing is that, that isn’t their final world together. However, this arc almost made me stop reading altogether, I was that repulsed.

[collapse]

There were a couple other issues that weren’t dealbreakers but really bothered me when they happened. for example:

Spoiler

MC has the option to return to worlds that he already visited, in order to live out his time with the ML in peace, and reverse the damage that he caused by dying heroically. In one of those timelines, he has a child. Now, I was so darn excited for him to return to this timeline, because it’s one of the only ones they have a child together and I thought their interactions could be so beautiful. Anyway, so before the child is born, MC dies and the doctors manage to save it. In the OG timeline where he dies, the ML who doesn’t know how to raise a child clashes with his son because they are both dark sentinels. So he ends up neglecting his kid and is basically a terrible father. The kid grows up resenting his dad for all of that. When MC returns to this world, both the ML and their child return to the past with their memories from the first timeline. So the son comes to understand why his father was so heartless after MC’s death, and is really happy to live in a universe where his “mother” is alive. You’d think that the ML would be grateful too, now that he can now have a proper relationship with his son since that MC can ease their conflicts with his “guide” powers. Nah, dude literally treats his son like an outsider and a rival. He constantly acts jealous of his own child, and tries to mark his territory in front of said CHILD. I could not have been more disappointed. There is not even one moment where I felt that ML was trying to be a good parent. He just let MC do all the work while constantly sexually harassing MC in front of their kid. There’s even one moment where the kid sleeps in bed with them and the ML initiates sex. And instead of shutting that ish DOWN, MC allows it to continue through to the end. Guess what idiots, your son was awake the entire time. And maybe it’s my western sensitivity, but I found that scene so gross, not funny at all. I wish that MC would’ve told ML to actually act like a father, but he doesn’t. He just kind of just acts annoyed and gives him the silent treatment instead of treating it seriously. If ML loves MC soOOO much, then wouldn’t he also love the offspring they created together? If that’s what you thought too, than this arc will probably be disappointing for you too, even though it was supposed to be one of the fun ones.

[collapse]

So to conclude, there was a lot to love about this novel. I have the same problem with the lack of consent as a lot of other readers, and how r*pe and assault was ignored and romanticized throughout. I won’t take off more than a star, however, because I enjoyed most of the novel. I definitely agree that you should skip the last arc if you want to get maximum satisfaction. It sucks to get so far in, only to have such a disturbing final arc. Anyway, this is just a warning. Read at your own risk, you’ll probably be able to get some enjoyment out of it. If you are coming in to it expecting it to be as good or better than Quickly Wear the Face of the Devil, you’ll probably be disappointed by the end. <<less

At last! At last someone finally picked up this novel! To those who like Quickly Wear the Face of the Devil, this novel shares a similar premise.

MC transmigrates to many different worlds (ie. ABO, fantasy, zombieland, sci-fi, etc.) but not always as a human, heh. And as stated, he has the duty to die heroically, hence the tragedy tag. So be prepared for lots of drama and misunderstandings.

The ML is in the same mould as ML from QWFD, super possessive. In fact, you kinda pity him as he keeps losing... more>> MC time and again, which doesn't do great things to his mental well-being.

I'd been hoping it would be picked up, and I'm grateful a high quality translator did, thank you! <<less

DEM ONION NINJAS!!! I don't know how many times I cried while reading this story. This novel has EVERYTHING! Fluffy, heartwarming, heartbreaking, etc. So so so good! I enjoyed reading the arcs very much. Like the title suggests, this is about the MC dying heroically. And yes, he did it flawlessly. You'll feel sad for the ML. *sigh* I shed a bucket of tears everytime I finish the arcs because the way the MC died was just...

Spoiler

I really like the character development of the MC. He was just a simple guy trapped by the system and then he grew up to an awesome - omnipotent - character. Oh and, he was straight at first but then he became a freaking seductress. LOL

[collapse]

I liked the ending. It had a proper closure. This story is just so beautiful. <<less

The story is okay and makes you want to keep reading, the usual transmigation novel - except that the MC dies everytime and 30% of the story is describing the MC as a male god. It started out quite nicely but then the ML turned into your typical possessive dude that forces himself on the other. Why is this type of character so popular? It's pretty much Stockholm Syndrome.

For new readers, although the chapters posted are only till c129 here, Snowy Codex has already finished translating n the official website has posted all 275 chapters.

Now for my review: Great novel. I've re-read each arc 7 times. The only QT novel that is almost on par with QWTFOFTD, in my opinion. (I say almost bcuz HDS had an extremely rushed ending. It's honestly a perfect novel had the author not messed up so bad with the ending).

Now for plot. I. AM. OBSESSED. WITH. EACH. AND. EVERY. ARC (except the... more>> last one...). I hope that suffices? Each arc's plot is exceptional, world building on point, characterisation on point, ROMANCE on hella point. What makes this novel very unique tho is that the MC's mission is to die heroically in every world or he fails the mission. So there's a bit of angst in each arc cuz of that (poor ML tho. He has to go through the trauma of losing the MC every single time). But the BEST part is that, after his mission success progress percentage reaches a certain point, he can go back to that same world and have a HE with the ML. And almost all the times, the ML reincarnates from the same world with the BE (so he has his memories of losing the MC in that particular world) so we get the satisfaction of seeing the sad ML finally being happy. Those arcs are called RE: arcs, I think.

Now, Shang Ke. I absolutely LOVE the MC. He's calm, gentle, patient, positive and very caring. And I love his motherly streak where he takes care of every child with deep affection n sincerity and will go mama bear if you threaten their safety or make them upset (he even plays mother hen for the ML in one arc where the ML has autistic tendencies and I'm living for that).

ML is the typical overbearing, possessive, obsessive type but his personality changes with each arc so I really like that. MC-ML romance is just.... perfect. I love it so much, their unconditional love for each other is *chef's kiss*.

Overall, this is a 100% must read, no questions asked. HOWEVER. I must say this, I was seriously tempted to take off a star cuz of the highly unsatisfactory ending (at least it was like that in my eyes). It was just so not it n the epitome of "I wanna get this (amazing full of potential for a great ending) novel over with". I would've preferred if the ending had been like

Spoiler

Shang Ke would've been sent back to his original original world, the very first one, the cultivation one where they were immortals (imma call it the origin world, the one where it all began) where the tragedy of Shou Mo (Shang Ke/MC) n Chen Xiao (ML) 's separation and curse had began due to Wu Du (Qi Chen) who was also in love with the MC n wanted to keep them apart. After Qi Chen officially lost control of the reincarnation lamp (the thing that controls them meeting in every life n also what Wu Du used with bad intentions to curse MC n ML so they would never have a HE with each other) after MC completed the last world, instead of going to a new world (the one in c275), it would've been better if both MC n ML went back to the origin world with both of them having all the memories of their past lives that they experienced n finally having a HE there. It would've been so much better.

[collapse]

It genuinely makes me so sad that such an amazing novel would've been the epitome of perfection that has everything u want in a QT novel had it not been for the ending n if the author had put in some more effort to create a finale arc for the immortal world n made that the final HE instead of that measly chapter 275 one.

Anyway, I'm gonna ignore the written ending of this novel n just imagine it had ended the way I envisioned it to. That way I'll be happier n not feel so fudging unsatisfied, regretful n disappointed. Dw it's a HE tho.

P.s translations are amazing. <<less

I, personally, love angst with heavy fluff and HE, and this story gives me plenty of that, BUT, I emphasis once again, with HE!

There is a redo for each time he dies tragically and MC falls in love with ML with each passing arc, which I totally love.

I really recommend this, even to straight readers since the s*x is not explicit (kinda sad ? ‘Bout that #FujishiHere) and is pretty blurry, and if you really can’t bear,... more>> you can just copy paste it and replace the ‘he’ pronouns with ‘she’, which will make it more confusing but works. <<less

While the novel is great, there is one thing that made me deduct two stars from what could have easily been rated five. I'll mention that in the cons, but before that, I'd like to mention the things that I liked about it.

Pros:

    • The Main Character: He's not really OP and has to work to obtain the talents that he has. The arcs truly aren't easy and it makes you sympathise with his situation. He's a genuinely nice and kind person, which makes the appeal of this novel go up by several levels. I can assure you, if he wasn't the way he is, I wouldn't have enjoyed the novel as much as I did. I also enjoy the fact that he keeps becoming progressively more outstanding as the missions pass.
    • The Arcs: Very interesting arcs and completely based on new ideas. They are original and the new things certainly are very interesting to read and explore through.
    • Realism: This novel does not promote the s*upid concept of world-hopping being easy. It's hard, you die, there is no time to relax, and the MC still emerges with a pure heart. The system is an as*hole and I love that he isn't the "cute systems" you usually see to increase the kawaii-factor. It's nice.
Con:

    • The Male Lead: He is the reason I removed two stars. He's such a f*cking bad character, I dislike him immensely. I have my reasons, of course. He r*pes the MC in almost every arc, doesn't regret it and enjoys it. He loves to force the MC and somehow bed him. It's clumsily masked and portrayed as something acceptable and cute. He's a yandere. Especially in arc "I am an evil pen", he literally imprisons the MC when they meet, threatens the MC to sleep with him and when he denies, he forcefully r*pes him. And then the next day, he looks that his cowering body (MC is acting, but still) and goes "he looks cute". It's clearly written that he knows what consequences forcing himself upon MC would bring but he says in the same sentence that he doesn't regret and would do it, given the chance. I hate this. This glorifies r*pe and abuse. I hate his character. He gets progressively worse as the arcs go on and I bet it's a character setting. Even if it's a character setting, I absolutely loathe it.
    • Edit: I'm on the next arc Re: A + A and the ML is a darling. I don't hate this one. I think my dislike only emerges when he is his yandere self who enjoys forcing and raping but there are a few arcs where he's a sweetheart, like in this one. What a bag of mixed feelings. But I did not like him in the "I am an evil pen" arc, not at all.
It's not bad, far from that actually. Even though I find him to be a prick, I will continue to read the novel since it's a pretty nice read; I'll just have to bear with his existence. You've been warned though, his behavior is pretty crazy. If yanderes who r*pe, threaten, and force their lovers are your thing, go for it.

Warning for all with weak heart and sensitive soul (like me, but maybe I'm an M) : this stories revolves around a guy who's trapped with the system and have to play the role of cannon fodder who's have to die, every ark (Its not spoiler since its already stated on the very first chapter).

Ark1 make me cry yet laughed a lot, but ark2 is the most heartbreaking one I cried like a f*ckin' baby.

For Snowy-sama. I gave my most sincere gratitude for translating this series and for making me squeal with joy whenever I saw the update and cry like a little s*it at the end of the ark, cutting my heart until its bleed. So, thank you. :) <<less

This is a lower quality version of "Quickly Wear the Face of the Devil". The MC is more annoying and the sub-stories are less interesting. The MC doesn't ever take the initiative, which often makes the ML very r*pey. If you're looking for more after reading QWTFOTD, this is a might be an okay fit.

The story is composed of multiple sub-stories where the MC & ML reincarnate into multiple different universes. The main plot in this story is the MC is an unfortunate character that needs to die a "heroic... more>> death", which typically is just to complete the mission set out by the system. The unique flavor of this novel is each sub-story is told twice, once with a Bad Ending (first run) and once with a Happy Ending (revisit).

While the novel overall is labeled "Happy Ending (HE) ", I would categorize it as ambiguous.
Spoiler

I disliked the ending immensely. I would have strongly preferred the childhood friend mentioned in the intro text to be the ML. Also, his "heroic death" in the IRL world felt unnecessary. The last chapter (275) was ambiguous and confusing.

[collapse]

Overall, would not recommend unless you are a superfan of QWTFOTD. <<less

I loved this book till the last arc where it just started giving me different vibes.

PLOT

The plot is AMAZING! Each arc is completely different story than the usual cliches and since each of the arcs end with a BE, Author-sama does a re-arc where Shang Ke goes back and lives till old age. Each arc is wonderfully done and the re arcs just makes you go fluff fluff fluff.

CHARACTERS
The characters are kinda 2D honestly but still good in a way ig.
MC
Shang Ke was Amazing. All around OP.... more>> Great character and he also took some time to realize that he likes the ML and bent himself. Good character. Great writing.

ML
I don't like the ML. He just gives off the all around scum aura, almost forcing Shang Ke into a relationship in the 2 and 3 arcs. Too possessive. Too jealous. And the last arc is honestly just making me hate him. Almost r*pes the MC and forces him into a relationship in every arc especially "Evil pen" and "Present life" (which the rant is about). I understand that he suffered cuz Shang ke died but I have a bottom line and when he starts being Yandere, I just wanna skip the whoe chapter.
Spoiler

He r*peS Shang Ke after the first few meetings because he got jealous and Shang Ke wasn't replying to him and does not even feel ANY REGRET! IDGAF if you guys are soulmates! R*pe IS r*pe and they throw around the word so much in the chapter after it happened and Shang Ke doesn't even do anything cuz he has the memories of his past life. Them just casually using that word in conversation just made me so uncomfortable. Then, they decide to be friends and when Shang ke went abroad to get a patent and didn't inform him, The ML followed him broke into the hotel room and again r*peD HIM! Then tried to FORCE him into a relationship. Shang Ke acknowledges that the ML is becoming scummy and only considers Shang Ke for family and sex. IMO, THIS sh*t IS NOT OKAY!

The Book was going so well but this arc (it's only been 3 chapters) and I already want to drop the novel after diligently following it for so long. Everything is okay to an extent and even if you have past memories, Some guy breaking into your house and raping you and not saying anything against it and still comforts them is ABNORMAL. He should have been taught a lesson.

Honestly so disappointed because of this.

[collapse]

EDIT: I finished the novel and I am incredible disappointed by the last arc and the ending of the novel. This book was honestly one of my favourites but it just dropped a lot below because of the reason mentioned above. Don't like the ML and plot became cringy. <<less

I go into each one of these novels hoping for actual decent writing and structure, but I guess the yaoi writing community is not past writing fanfic level stuff yet.

Now before I get DMed by a bunch of ppl, there are some BL novels with decent plot. Its just that once you realize the relationship and personalities of the ML and MC are the exact same as every other BL novel, its kinda hard to enjoy it.

Having read pretty much every BL/shonen ai on this site, I have to say... more>> this type of novel is more like p*rn than an actual novel.

This is the type of novel you pick up when you've had a long day and you just want instant gratification.

The premise is so overused that cliche is an understatement. Reincarnate with system continuously while the same ML slowly becomes more aware and possessive, etc.

I really wish someone would write a novel where the MC meets a different type of man in each world and learns something new about himself and what he wants to be or becomes more accepting of his sexuality in each new world. But I guess its too much to expect character development other than -> ML increasingly possessive, MC -> increasingly in arbitrary love with ML in a BL.

If you want some quick instant gratification, this is 3.5 - 4/5

Otherwise, if you're looking for actual story, character development, a decent plot, this is a solid 1 - 1.5/ 5

Edit: Read to ch 80 or so, novel gets more garbage as it goes. Or if you're reading it to satisfy your masochist cravings, it gets better I guess.

Plot armor becomes more apparent as bad things start happening to MC for the dumbest of reasons. Everything feels even more forced than before. A few new fetishes are introduced: Bestiality, incest, ABO, etc

Amazing!! Very similar premise as Quickly Wear the Face of the Devil. MC is reincarnates into many different worlds but is forced to die heroically in each world. ML is the same in each word, and he is possessive of MC :) Novel Updates says only 2 chapters out but there are really 30 chapters out as of right now! There is humor and lots of fluffy moment, the translation is really good and clear. Go read this!!

Reading this novel is exhausting.

It follows ShangKe, who's tasked to die heroically in various QT worlds.

His ends are quite tragic and emotionally traumatizing. I have a deep hatred for this system. It's just unbelievably cruel for relatively meager rewards, imo. The situations SK finds himself in and the choices he's forced to make for the system are abhorrent and emotionally/mentally/physically abusive. Downtime between worlds is also extremely isolating and draining. Thinking about the premise of this novel and the system, there's just very little to be happy about.

The thing that... more>> keeps me going is the MC, who is just so steadfast and bright amidst all this tragedy. He suffers so much and still remains positive. You can't help but root for him.

The ML...I can do without. I like him better in some worlds than others, but the obsessive beastly yandere CEO trope churns my stomach. I kind of liked seeing him suffer, but I don't really think anyone should suffer like that, and especially not when his suffering is tied to the MC's extreme suffering and death.

There are undeniably sweet moments between them. The ML just isn't my favorite person.

After a certain point, the leadup to 'falling in love' becomes perfunctory and basically defaults to 'ingrained in the soul/love at first sight' followed by the ML overbearingly cementing the relationship. I feel like this is a missed opportunity, tbh. The chase is where most of the interesting fluff is, since their domestic scenes are usually just very aggressive love making, food, and time skips where we're told they're happy. It gets boring after a few arcs.

The non-stop tragedy with the occasional bittersweet moments is exhausting to read through. I felt a lot of anger and sadness reading this, and I'm not sure if the fluff and occasional joke is enough to counteract these bitter emotions.

Some arcs are written better than others from a pacing perspective, and they carry more weight/impact. Some of the arcs are just plain weird, but that's subjective.

I'm uncertain why the page only lists translations up to 67ish, when the actual project has them to 134, but so far the story is enjoyable enough.

I quite dislike the typical forceful ML who will basically r*pe the MC (with consent, but still forceful) to get his way and doesn't see anything wrong with that; in some worlds he's better than in others, but overall this issue will always bug me in a lot of the BL genre. (Small edit: in the last "real world" arc, the ML is the... more>> scummiest so far, outright r*ping the MC repeatedly and gets away with it and all the rest of his scummy abusive actions, so if that triggers you, steer clear from the last few chapters.)

The worlds are fairly fun, some more interesting than others, and I quite like the chances of revisiting them to fix the endings. The MC is likeable though quite OP. Overall a good story despite some of its shortcomings. <<less

I absolutely love the premise. So far the story is awesome.

Not really here to review but to let others know that Snowycodex has been repeatedly going down. SnowyTime pretty much said that they keep tryna fix the site, itll work for a couple hours, then go back to being down.

SnowyTime says thats for now we should just expect the site to be down for the rest of the month. They will keep tryna fix the problem.

... more>> All of this is info I got from stalking forums on here.

Weve entered a dark time my brethren, we must remain brave for the coming weeks. <<less

As the tittle said, died heroically in every task world. Quite a few times to save ML which sometime make me think the ML is quite weak. One thing I felt a bit dissatisfied is how we cannot know what happen afterward in each world after MC died. I mean, in some world, did antagonist characters luckily go around after MC died or they got their retribution. Plus, what about the ML who very much in angsty everytime MC died. Edit- well, after a few more chapters ahead, dont worry,... more>>
Spoiler

u got to know what happen to each world after MC died, and without doubt, ML is so damn miserable without mc

It really stands out among other novels of the same circles.
The protagonist's settings PER mission really shape how the story goes, and the arcs takes unexpected turns.
There is alot more character growth in the protagonist's overall story compared to others as well (from unwilling to longing).
This novel is actually superior to Quickly Wear The Face Of The Devil, in this context.
Definitely more than just typical.

I love this story, it so interesting my second favorite after Quickly wear the face of the devil. The only thing that I did not like much was the end, as it was kind of rushed and something was missing. It would have been better if they could go back to they original life as immortals. But it was good.

First of all: THANK YOU SO MUCH TRANSLATORS ON SNOWY CODEX! The translations are superb and your guys' work is being noticed and appreciated so much!!!!

Ok guys, when I say go read this right now, I mean: this is the QT that takes the supreme title of "Queen" next to the "King" that is FOD. If you, like me, have been searching for something to read that resembles our smart and capable MC from FOD and has an overbearing, slightly yandere-ish ML then you've come to the right place. This... more>> is a QT story that follows our MC who was "cursed" to die heroically in every world he transmigrates to. The system he's tied to basically gives him a mission in every world and he has to court death along with it.

Some things to keep in mind:

  1. If you're easily moved, you'll cry. I didn't but I can see where people would feel the need to shed tears (keep in mind the title of this book).
  2. Our ML is very overbearing, clingy, and loves our MC very much. Some stories, he can be even more extreme, as in even if he violates MC, he'd be willing to do it again, and again, and again....... you get the point.
  3. MC is a capable, smart guy who solves his own problems and can protect the ML. He is not helpless, pathetic or a white lotus.
  4. The "process" of the missions can get a bit tiresome, I got bored with a few, but that's to be expected with every book.
  5. System is very impersonal, if there's one thing I wanna bit*h slap it's the system. Why you gotta put MC through so much BS!?
  6. Relationship between MC and ML, although slow in the first three worlds, picks up very quickly after (this might bother people who love a slow burn romance, but for me the pace was nice).
Overall, I strongly recommend this, it's f*cking amazing and the worlds are all VERY unique. The translators are badass for putting so much time into this book, go appreciate their hard work. <<less
