Quick Transmigration Cannon Fodder’s Record of Counterattacks

Description

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

Ning Shu had dropped dead. But in a burst of good fortune she became a task-taker in charge of counterattacking for pitiful cannon fodder. Thus, Ning Shu, in one world after another, took all kinds of life roles, encountered all kinds of ‘you’re heartless, you’re ruthless, you’re making trouble for no reason’ people. She encountered all sorts of white lotus flowers, green tea bitches, scheming bitches, by the batch.

Does any true beauty still exist in the world!? bellowed Ning Shu angrily. You annoying trash! I’m just here to counterattack, please don’t get in the way of me completing my task. Transmigration main character, reincarnation main character. There’s only a lazy task-taker, no undestroyable main character halo. Ning Shu had no choice but to painfully gather moral integrity in each of the worlds.

I'll start off by saying that I thoroughly enjoyed reading this novel.

  • The MC is an independent and rational woman who sees things as they are.
  • She doesn't have any OP cheats or any exceptional talents except for her strong mentality. Of course, she does have her protagonist halo as she is the protagonist, but it balances out with her flaws and the situations she's put in.
  • There's been no sign of any ML so far. But I'm glad there isn't any because it's quite refreshing to read about the MC completing her tasks without having to deal with her own romantic drama on the side.
  • Additionally, MC works with what she's got. Considering the fact that she takes on cannon fodder roles and has to comply with each plane's rules, MC does extremely well in accomplishing her tasks and keeping her head straight.
  • MC's commentary on the cliches and the FL's and ML's halo effects on others is satisfying to read.
I'm not the type of reader who picks up on the underlying messages at first glance because I just read for the sake of enjoying it. So I cant really say much about the feminist things and plot holes and whatnot.

But I can say that the fact that all the characters and subplots in each arc are exaggeratingly cliched for a reason, and I... more>> believe it's been explained later on by the system.

Spoiler

In the cultivation arc, MC returns a dimension plane back to the place where they originated (?), and there the system explains that the dimmer planes are the ones that the task-takers are trying to help fix and repair to prevent them from disappearing. Additionally, the system says that these dying planes could result from excess regrets of cannon fodders and innocent souls as well as certain people going beyond the limits allowed in the plane.

[collapse]

It's certainly a slow plot, but I think its srsly worth giving it a try. There are some people who dont like the first arc, but I still encourage new and interested readers to persevere and read on.

My favorite arc was the one where MC takes on the special task and becomes a FL instead of a cannon fodder. That one was hilarious and really satisfying because of MC's genius way of avoiding rape. <<less

This novel is really good!

At first, I I was a bit disappointed since there's no romance for the MC, but now I actually glad it doesn't have one so far. The good points I found so far is:

1. MC is unique and actually adapt her mindset with each world. That means her personality showed to others changed a bit to fit with the world she currently has her task in. (But her inner principle is still firm)

2. It's refreshing to see a story from another side. I have read... more>> some CN web novels, but this novel actually make me think of the story in another way. For example, in some cultivation novels, I got excited and really like the story. But here, you can see the MC of those novels is too lucky and dumb sometimes. Which can atually be true if you think twice. I still liked those novels in the end, but at the same time it's complicated.. You'll know what I mean if you read this XD

3. She's not OP, and doesn't always have a strong backing in each world. You can see her struggle and actually relate to it.

4. Translation team is really good at this! It's so smooth and easy to read. English isn't my native language, so sometimes it's hard for me to understand it if the sentences are complicated.. ^^; The minus point is:

Hmm.. I can't think of any for now.. Except the fact that I can't read nor understand Chinese despite the fact I want to read ahead so bad.. Lol XD <<less

Yeah, screw this novel. No, seriously. What the f*ck. I've rarely seen such a trainwreck. How did this even get a 4.7/5 score with 314 votes at the time I'm posting this? It's clearly some of the most subpar crap I've ever read.

I came in expecting something interesting and funny... The idea seemed nice, the setting of the novel was kinda cool and it didn't have any tags like "shoujo" either. The reviews made it seem great. What I got was some of the most subpar sh*t ever. There's absolutely... more>> NOTHING interesting going on in this novel, every single character are childish and retarded to the point of damnation, they all act like young, pretentious kids, no matter if they're adults or teenagers. Every character is utterly repulsive, I'm really not exaggerating here, it's at the level where you just want the MC to start a massacre and kill EVERYONE. For 58 chapters (I managed to get through 58 chapters because the chapters are extremely, extremely short, kinda like 1/6 of a real chapter in a normal novel) I didn't even get to smile ONCE, much less laugh. It was just utterly boring. The MC is also a dipsh*t that has no real talents or intelligence at all. This entire novel was just annoying.

Oh, and please add a damn "shoujo" tag to this! I know a shoujo novel when I see one. This IS a shoujo novel, absolutely NOT suitable towards males. Just going by the comments for the chapters of that novel, every single person that enjoys it is clearly a girl. Holy sh*t. I can't even count the amount of times I retched in the hour it took for me to read 58 chapters.

Really, please, don't do the same mistake as me, don't read this novel as a male. This isn't even worth 1/5, that's how bad it was. I can't even believe that females would like it, but perhaps they like retarded and extremely immature characters, plots and mcs.

Sh*t, I have to find a new novel fast to wash the bad taste out of my mouth. Truly few novels have managed to make me feel so disgusted. <<less

This novel is one of those rare ones that the author has their three views straight and the character is one of the most rational logical female character I know.

Ning shu is not like other mainstream FL that either have their heads over clouds (or love) or

'ruthless' revenge-y type.

She is very pragmatic and focus on her missions to satisfy her clients' wishes (the cannon fodders). She is the kind of person who would rather stack her wisdom points than her charm points.

There are few reoccurring male characters but there's no real romance, yet. Only hints (?) I'm not really sure tbh.

Ning shu takes a very cynical view of love. I mean, who wouldn't after going through what she's been through? Those missions with the 'only live for love' female protagonist types might traumatised her for life.

What I really like about the story itself :

    1. There are multiple 'Arcs' and they were written well with the right pace. Not like other quick transmigration stories that just became a bundle of short stories. Each one is good enough to get their own novels, I think. But not all arcs are created the same, some are better than the other. My favorite arc is "I think my husband wants to kill me", a dark and a bit disturbing arc but I love it!
    1. It made fun of the common dog blood plots like overbearing CEO, enchanting Ghost king, children before marriage that turns out to be genius and leads ML and FL together, spoiled love, sadomasochistic love, virtual reality, etc etc
    1. The systems missions were interesting too. Like harem beautify system, catching great beauties system, superstar system (I hope you know the last one I refer to).
    1. It's so fun to defeats those mary sue, gary stu, white lotuses, green teas, etc etc.
    1. Ning shu never taken a mission that ask someone to fall in love with someone else because she thought that it was not authentic especially when the real owner comes back then who would guarantee that the other person would still be in love with the real one?
    1. I appreciated the fact when it gets hard, Ning Shu would not indiscriminately kill everyone to complete her missions because she knows that when the owner comes back, they'll face great repercussion. She takes great care for after sale service (?) like finding a good job, taking care of client's family, and writing down skills that she has so her client will survive even when she left.
    1. Ning Shu really grew, as in no OP past life skills that she conveniently has such as being an assassins, hacker, etc etc. She learned it one by one which made her more real.
    1. She doesn't differentiate good or evil, sometimes it was because of love or revenge or jealousy. Her moral compass is not all black and white, even it became very irrational, she would still be cool headed and did her best for her client.
    1. I just really like her, she's a strong independent woman that makes rational decisions.
[collapse]

a bit of a warning, this novel has a very slow but consistent progression so earlier arcs are somewhat weaker. <<less

I started this because I was looking for a series with a strong female lead and no romance.

Strong female lead? Yeah, eventually.

No romance? Debatable. There's romantic subtext and a lot of validation through male admiration/approval. And, of course, invalidation bc male dismissal/disapproval. Either way, a woman's worth is hinged on how desirable men find her. Female characters are worthless because no men like them (back), or worthy because men (or one particularly exceptional man) likes them.

What was particularly frustrating, and at times infuriating, was the contrast between the feminist veneer... more>> and the misogynistic messages.

The feminist veneer was wonderful, if flimsy and artificial. Female lead with aims and goals outside of romance? Great. Scathing observations about Alpha Male leads? Awesome. Heroine who tries to use logic and reason as much as possible? Fantastic. Female warriors/combatants who refuse to be seen as inferior to the men? Flippin' beautiful.

Unfortunately, everything that showed through the transparent veneer was... gross.

Examples:

Spoiler

    • The characterization of the lead as "Not Like The Other Girls" and out of the norm for recognizing sh***y dudes as trash.
      (eg. "This indicated that she had stayed in the hospital too long. Ning Shu, whose sense of aesthetic had diverged from that of ordinary people, expressed that she didn't understand.")
    • Little non sequiturs like this: "All women liked being subdued by a strong man." "So much hidden bitterness, you're acting like a total girl."
    • The s*xual dynamics, wherein men are characterized as being naturally licentious and unable to control themselves, and therefore excused of all responsibility when it comes to intercourse (even forced).
    • Use of the Madonna-Wh*re Complex, with the 'villainous' women being promiscuous/s*xually active, and vice versa.
    • Reaffirmations of s*xist Confucian ideology/the status quo, especially by tying the antagonist with less conservative tropes and villifying these "against the current" cliches.
[collapse]

But the most unforgivable aspect of this novel was the gender violence.

There is a lot of rape and dubcon. And it is extremely glossed over.

Memorable examples:

Spoiler

- The "he isn't raping me - he seems like a good guy (also he's hawt) " example. Dude puts his unwanted wife through rape, torture, and forced prostitution just because he doesn't love her. He has a good impression of her when Ning Shu takes over, so he wants to "make her his." He hasn't changed, but his view of her has, so the author describes him favorably with constant comments on his unruly good looks. He doesn't give a sh** about the women his men rape though, and neither, aparently, should you.

- The "he's so nice usually, and she deserves it" example. Woman is raped by the man who comforts her while she's mourning the loss of her OTL because he "can't take it anymore"... She's portrayed as unreasonable for refusing to forgive him when he "continues treating her gently and considerately" afterwards, to which he responds by raping her repeatedly. It's all good though, because she's the antagonist. Rape can be used as a justifiable punishment right? Ha. Asdfghjkl.

[collapse]

Aside from that, there were also a wealth of plot holes and inconsistencies. The characterization was often inorganic, forced, and illogical; especially for the antagonists, though even the heroine was prone to random personality changes.

There was tons of potential here. A shame it wasn't carried through. <<less

Went to read the raw because I was suffering from severe withdrawal syndromes waiting for the translation. But now I'm suffering from severe withdrawal syndromes waiting for the raw. T-T

Spoiler

This novel is definitely unique amongst the Quick Transmigration types. Its uniqueness can be both good and bad. I just happen to like quite a few of these points though sometimes it feels like the author overdid it. Everything below is up till what I read (chapter 3073, the translator's chapter count seems to be different from the raw sites I frequent).

    1. Author (and thus the MC) is an advocator of feminism, independence and other values that have been mentioned many times throughout missions and so on. Women can be capable on their own. Love doesn't last. Love seriously makes people blind and kidnaps their brain cells. Women don't need to be loved to live well; they just need to love themselves. No point suffering over lost love. Etc.
    2. MC has little to none romance. This is partly in accordance to her values and personality, which she sticks to throughout. There are repeat characters
      Spoiler

      Guys: Tai Shu (school doctor uncle), Li Wen (emperor elder brother), Qing Yue (kelp), Zhang Jiasen, Jiang Chen (soulless undead), An He (fragrance military guy), Zu Li (changpao guy), Mo Ming (weak porcelain guy), Sang Liang (silver-haired guy), Zheng Qing (2333), etc.

      [collapse]

      but the reappearance of those not related to the organisation are few and far between. MC can be cold and ruthless, actively avoiding romantic entanglements outside of missions. While some of the big guys simply look down on her strength, making it unlikely for them to consider her as a partner.

    3. MC is a bit of a lone wolf. She doesn't trust people easily, if ever. She's very dedicated to her goals. Relationships, including friendship, is kind of secondary. I like this because it means she's not wishy-washy and you don't have to expect annoying angst but this also makes her come off a bit too pragmatic cos it seems like she only contact people when she needs them. So far she seems to have made 2 friends and the rest are still on acquaintance or business partner level.
    4. I find it quite comedic though this type of humour may not be for everyone. Some humour might be lost in translation too. There's a few running jokes throughout, like how she's becoming more and more like a nanny.
    5. Each character is unique though they may not always be very well-developed.
      Spoiler

      Especially for Tai Shu, his personality from his first 2 meetings with MC and his later personality seems to differ vastly.

      [collapse]

      None of the important characters appear 2-dimensional; they all have their thoughts, motivations and quirks. Some. Are. VERY. Quirky. A common point is you shouldn't expect a free lunch from like 98% of them =_=;;

    6. The world building is superb. MC starts off as a minor, dispensable operative and as appropriate for her rank, she knows very little. This changes as she climbs the ladder, increases her value, and gains the right to know more. The missions are just part of a structure to keep things stable for the bigger picture. There are loopholes but not a lot of obvious ones.

It's really a salty dish among sweet dessert, among twenty or so 'fast wear' type (a novel type where MC jump from a world to another, completing the original body's wish or something like that, a world/set story usually around 20 chapters).

Usually MC got around 2/3 world until found the 'special one'. Keep her virginity only for him and strive to finish the story until she got her own happiness with the the special ones. In every world, MC used special one/ml's identity to help her achieve and complete the... more>> task, this series doesn't. MC is a strong and independent woman, if I remember correctly, the closest romance I can smell is from the first world, then straight from there is an adventure type. She really try her best to finish every task, with often limited resource and level cap (like you can't exceed the BOSS you're fighting in RPG game, no matter how much you grind).

Some fast wear series feels repetitive once you go through 5 or so world, but this one is not. Every world feels different. But for romance seeker, you have been warned. <<less

TWENTY chapters in and STILL nothing of note has happened.

So far we have:
... more>>
Spoiler

Girl dies, girl sees fluffy clouds, girl gets tapped to transmigrate into other people's bodies to help solve their problems, girl transmigrates -- and immediately get beaten to a pulp by minions of the Antagonist, goes to the school doctor and gets sneered at by him, goes to class and gets sneered at by the teacher and the class itself, meets Antagonist and gets sneered at by her, meets Male Lead she was sent to somehow save and gets sneered at by him, goes home and gets beaten to a pulp AND sneered at by Father (who is apparently not blood-related), gets sneered at by Mother and Brother as she's kicked out of the house forever, gets tricked by the System to accept a side-mission, and finally moves into an apartment where she is FINALLY truly happy and delighted with her life because she can clean her room... Even bouncing up and down.

What, with blood crusting on your head (rammed into wall), blood on your face (clawed by fingernails), multiple bruises (pummeling), and she herself even said she thought (hit by heavy objects) she had a concussion?

No. Not happening.

Another problem is that she states she is completely lost in class (because when you transmigrate you get information about everyone in your life, the ability to speak and write the language, your personal history from birth, but you DON'T get English 101).

Also, she is apparently good at Taekwondo... that she signed up for somewhere... so she's going to completely ignore lessons and focus on that instead... like she's not going to get called on by the teacher so she can be laughed at some more... (sigh)

[collapse]

Now, it's written in the summary above that yes, she is going to meet a LOT of unpleasant people, but so far I still haven't seen a single glimpse of "Good thing I have [plot armor / some cheat / help from outside] going for me!" or "Good thing I am smart!" or "Good thing I am actually a psycho axe murderer!" so I'm not entirely sure why the main character is acting like she's on autopilot this whole time. Even when she genuinely feels an emotion it just somehow washes away like she's a certain lich character from a once-popular vrmmo game and she's back to "meh" in the next paragraph.

I'm keeping my rating at three stars because to be fair, a) the translations are good, b) I don't read that many Chinese novels so for all I know this pacing might be normal, and c) it might get better once the actual plot starts.

But for me, I'm done. <<less

I've endured enough!!

Do you know what a punching bag of a MC is?!

A masochistic task-taker-transmigrator?!

A beat-me-to-a-pulp-and-I'll-take-it-with-pleasure person?

A MC who don't even refute back? Even with just words?

The perfect example is this!

I mean like, come on!

If you don't like them then say it to their face!

I just don't know why some readers like this!

I've already read 40+ chapters and the MC is still a punching bag!

Thus I DROP this!

INTERSTING TWIST is that the MC returns all her stolen bodies after reversing their fates and saving their lives, so some of the ex cannon fodders are aware that they lost their memory and someone else was in their body and are grateful for the second chance.

So far no romance as she is professionally, strictly just changing fates, not selfishly finding romance in her borrowed body.

This novel suffers from a bad first impression, or bad first world progression. It was like reading a bad shoujo manga and at one point I was ready to give up on the MC. But, BUT!! Gratefully, second world and up, things really pick up momentum and the MC is GLORIOUS! She's the woman who don't let gender dictate what a person can or cannot achieve. She is fierce, giving some literal face slapping to a cheating husband an it was the best thing EVER! One thing that differentiate... more>> this from other fast wears/system novels, the souls whose body was used by the MC, returns after the MC completes her mission. And you get to see them facing the aftermath of the counter attack, some remembering all the things the MC did to get their dignity back. Which is so cool!

All in all it is worth 5 stars, but 1 star was sacrificed to purify my mind from the first world. Plus system is an Ass. <<less

Just wanted to note that the translated chapters look like they're splitting the original raw chapters into two chapters. Translated chapter 68 equals original raw chapter 34. I think that's why the story seems so slow paced? Also, the second world and its characters are way more interesting than the first world that's like a shoujo manga. MC's role is also very different in the second world. So, if you don't like the first world, you might want to try reading second world.

My opinion, I also didn't like the first arc and struggled to finish reading to the end. Like how a lot of other reviews wrote the MC was like a punching bag in the first arc and it really hurts the heart to read. There were also a lot of time I wanted to drop the story too however I didn't because I knew this was a system story so the MC would be going to many different worlds so the next world may be better. The only reason why... more>> the first world is so bad is because she went to a world that was ranked to high for her level which was informed to the audience at the beginning of the story :/

For example, realistically if you're a rookie that just joined a game you shouldn't be fighting against the boss right off the bat unless you want to die. It is impossible to win in such a battle so unless your unlucky or a masochistic you won't join such a battle which wouldn't be fun at all since you're doomed to suffer _ (:3」∠) _ Our MC did try to fight back in the first arc a lot though but they were all futile which was frustrating ;-;

I highly recommend to everyone that if you also don't like this arc to just skip and go to the next arc which starts in chapter 62 instead of dropping it :) Or just skip to the next arc in chapter 62 when you can't put up with the first arc anymore (which is usually around chapter 40 😂),
Spoiler

You would expect/want our MC to suddenly become op instead of a punching bag and beat up everyone that frustrates you before however that is realistically impossible :') Sadly you can't be rookie lvl 1 to suddenly pro lvl 100 in a few months, it takes years of experience you guys. You can only borrow a knife and find a pro that would kill the boss for you so you can go to the next lvl x-x

[collapse]

I am in LOVE with the second arc. It is the complete opposite of the first arc and you will feel a lot of satisfaction after reading it. Our MC is not some weakling but is a hard worker that grows and train herself to becomes independent and strong enough to protect herself. She becomes a person that doesn't need any man to protect her 😤 saving not only the original body's fate but also a lot of other women who also suffered like her. Our MC influence every women that suffered to stand up for themselves and strive to become independent which I love. She not only influence those women to change but also gives them the opportunity get stronger :') <<less

There is one very simple reason that I like and recommend Cannon Fodder instead of other Quick Transmigrations; there is no central Male Lead. The fix to every problem is not 'endure until we find our husband', it is 'Ning Shu actually has to do something about it herself'.

Most stories of this type very quickly descend into one plot: Here are some bad-guys. Trip them up a little while finding husband again. Once husband is found, do nothing but enjoy his pampering, and get married/live your happy life in a new pretty cosplay dress. Cannon Fodder does not do this. Cannon Fodder - as the title promises - gives us counterattacks. Ning Shu does things. Ning Shu has goals and aims outside of get her man - and in fact... more>> doesn't seem to have one at all, which is a strength to this type of story! In a scene where the female leads so quickly turn into hapless, passive flowers clinging to their true-love's arm, Ning Shu is aggressive and focused on achieving the wishes her hosts' left her with.

As a result, Ning Shu actually has character, and actually grows and changes over time and her experiences change her. Because Cannon Fodder also avoids the other trope so common to transmigration; Ning Shu is not 'special'; she was not a genius, or an assassin, or a legendary warrior in the making. She starts from zero, and every skill she gains is a skill she seeks out to develop and earn. She is satisfying to read and journey with.

In terms of plot and what you're getting into; this story is very much in line with the other Quick Transmigration's; brief hops of a few dozen chapters going to different worlds and stories in order to counteract the plot would otherwise be in place. But since it forgoes the romance entirely, these stories do not get stale - instead, the author has to work hard to give us interesting worlds that challenge Ning Shu in new ways.

As a result, I'd actually say this story gets better and the worlds more interesting as we go on. The first world might be a bit of a strain for some people, but the longer you read the more improved the settings become.

If you're not interested in watching a bunch of characters be forced to face man-made "karma", then neither Cannon Fodder or any other Quick Transmigration is for you. But if you have found the concept enjoyable at any point before, Cannon Fodder is one you should try out. <<less

It's well written and translated. As other reviewers stated, the focal point is about a strong female MC just trying to get her counter attacking jobs done efficiently and professionally. She starts off weak without cheats, skills, or charms. She does make progress to the top but it is sure SLOW.

The beginning chapters of each arc are frustrating to read. And the first arc is just awful seeing the injustice the MC swallows so be warned, this isn't a novel to read if you like OP characters from start or... more>> freshly served face slapping. But if you can stomach the dog blood thrown in the start, it's interesting to see the story develops.

Also, addressing romance. If romance was rain, this novel is a desert. ML? Ha. What's that? Good men treating the MC like a normal human is as rare as finding a unicorn. <<less

The reason I've rated a 3 and not higher is that for all of this stories strengths it also has some flaws that may seriously be off putting for some. While it is worth giving a try if you struggle, don't push yourself, or maybe drop that arc and jump to the next one '8 the translator divides them up clearly).

What I like:

Unique protagonist: This MC is outrageous in the headlights she will go. By far not perfect she turns to behavior that is totally out there from what... more>> is usually described in novels. This leads to hilarious encounters and sometimes strange developments that even the 'different world's story line' struggle to amend.

Contrasting typical relationships with a-typical ones: The worlds that MC visits are all different kinds of cliche story lines with very cliche relationships. MC, however has more nuanced and unusual relationships with the natives of the worlds (though she doesn't develop them in all of the arcs). This comes off as very refreshing among all the stifling plot relationships.

What I struggle with:

A special brand of feminism: The MC has very strong feministic views, which often go against the comonly accepted norms in some of the worlds she visits. This is refreshing at first, except MC isn't always consistent with the messages she preaches. One moment she's speaking up for women having a personality, next she's stating that womens most important assets are their face and body... *sigh*. Sometimes I genuinely see it as a struggle between the ancient paradigm of the world MC is in against her pwn modern views. And sometimes I just see it as the author struggling with their own feministic ideals and the modern Chinese paradigm surrounding women, which strikes my North west European sensibilities as old fashioned and disadvantageous to women.

When the Protagonist suffers so do the readers: Some of the Worlds have really strong cliches, probably diliberate so the MC can point out all of the ridiculousness. Usually the MC suffers because of outragous behaviours of cliches, the problem is, I suffer too T_T. It's horrific. I don't know weather to call it good writing because the author makes their point or to call it bad writing because the point is so well made the raders just want to stop and puke at the nonsensical behavior of the characters...*sigh* fortunately this element is weaker in some arks than in others.

It's worth giving a try. The chapters are short and quick to read. Though the first arc isn't the best it isn't the worst either and should give an idea of what's ahead.

And if you like a certain character,
Spoiler

don't worry. You'll see them again. ;)

To be frank at start I was enjoying the novel quite a bit. But it got problematic when I started reading another novel since this one so anti MC in each volume and I just could not enjoy the novel without thinking badly of the advantages the MC got during its progress and the sympathize with the people who became the cannon fodder. Its quite troublesome

I read this several times and it my favorite system novel so far because the MC isnt ridiculously op like the MC in Quickly Wear the Face of the Devil (seriously that MC is perfect at everything) or have crazy cheats like the Shi Sheng. She like the MC in doomsday wonderland really hard working and no male lead in sight.I love how the MC talks about how woman should respect themselves not just relying on men. There seems to be something bigger going on in the background beside her... more>> mission.i also sense a mystery in her background too .

However the downfall of this novel is the what Brave Armadillo put in her spoiler I agree with her and to be honest as a victim of bullying (i was the poorest kid in my school full of rich kids and I was consider fat) I was cringing throughout the first arc and wasn't satisfied at all at the resolution also it reminded me of the Busan bully case that currently going on in korean where the bullies almost tortured a girl to death and show no remorse and even sued the victim . There really is crazy girls out there taking advantage of their youth. The good things is that the MC has a funny sense of humor so ill be stressed out from anger and then start laughing

After the first arc the story gets way less stressful (at least for me) and this MC slowly gets stronger and is really kick ass. However so far in the raws I read up to she will always meet crazy people so I wish for a twist where there more character to these rather flat villains because I too like want to see if true beauty still exist in these worlds <<less

This is a nice finding!

A female MC who for once isn't crazy about romance, nor is a genius, nor assassin, nor have any special ability (gold finger) nor did she complete her school (she couldn't attend high school) !

Knows what it is to begin from Zero? This is beginning from zero!

... more>> She didn't have much choice, the only choice is succeed or die, so of course she will desperately try to stay alive! What people don't do to survive, right?

Love? What's that? Is it eatable? The body isn't even hers to begin with! She has no right nor chance to carry on with a love affair! She is just doing her job, an employee is just an employee and should not get involved in their clients life and just do their job.

Although there's no ML buss to carry her around, one must not forget to do network!

This isn't a simple fast wear novel where they get bound to system to revive themselves in their world or simply returning, I'm actually still wondering what would be her reward..... if there actually exist a reward...... she doesn't seen to have a place to return, so.......... I'm really curious as to where this story will lead since she in every world she will get stronger and stronger, what will the behind scene boss/people do with her when she get all that power? <<less
