Rebuild World (LN)


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

The pinnacle of human civilization has come and gone, leaving only ruins in its wake. Society and science now struggle to rebuild, rediscovering scraps of knowledge from powerful ancient artifacts that defy comprehension. These relics of the “Old World” can make the fortunes of those who find them—if ancient security systems and rogue bioweapons don’t kill the relic hunters first. Akira, a young street orphan, sets out to become one such hunter to escape his brutal life in the slums. Untrained, malnourished, and poorly armed, Akira would be lucky to make it back from the ruins alive—until an encounter with Alpha, a mysterious, ghostly woman, changes his fate forever. Alpha needs a hunter, and she’s willing to train Akira to get one. Will her support be enough to help a penniless kid from the slums climb to the top of a crushing and merciless world?

BUT I expect LN would be much more polished than WN, but its the opposite LN has lower quality instead. And all changes involved Katsuya was done VERY badly.

Now that Author no longer continue WN version, can only hope later part will return its former glory.

It's cool. Though it gave of feeling similar to other post apocalypse sci-fi, it's execution is well. As of now, it's world setting is solid and apart from some cliche' mecha-monsters, everything else is good. Though MC is not OP, at times his "cheat" will make him a tremendous OP character.

Other characters and their development is relatively..... Understandable. And this MC isn't a regular goodie shoes bullsh*t crap. Though at times, he acts as goody shoes, he knows the limit. We may classify him a 'trained beast' - yes, not... more>> tamable but trainable. so, If interested in a anti-hero, post apocalypse mecha-plot - it's worth reading - Go for it! <<less

It’s pretty rare for a novel to be set in a post apocalyptic world. Akira is a pretty realistically portrait guy from the slums, however he is the same low libido teenager like so many others. The author tries to explain it with after seeing Alpha no real girl can’t compare with her so real life girls just don’t turn him on, meanwhile he is collecting at least a little harem. *Sigh* that’s not how libido works...

Of course Alpha has her own goals, she’s an AI from the old... more>> world and Akira is one of the few people who can see her. So she choses to save him and train him since she has no physical body but needs someone who is able to physically reach a certain heavily guarded part of the old ruins.

The world setting is nothing new for the genre but it is really well done. Political powers roam in the background far above Akira’s level but the stronger he gets the more glimpses he catches how the world operates.

Akira is no OP protagonist, he is constantly on the verge of dying in battle and many foes are way stronger and unbeatable even with Alpha’s help (at least for now). The fighting scenes using all kinds of guns, liquid knives and wearing power suits, mechs and even on motorbikes are well written.

This certainly is one of my favorite current LN’s. <<less
