Reincarnated as a Dragon’s Egg ~Lets Aim to Be the Strongest~

I woke up in an unknown forest.

It seemed like this place was a fantasy world where strange-looking beasts ran rampant. And just like in a game, I seemed to be able to check my enemies’ and my ability.

Let’s hunt monsters and gather titles in order to level up and evolve into a Greater Dragon!

And I heard a mysterious voice in my head, “Let’s aim to be the strongest!”

A really fun read with a clumsy MC.

Interesting powers, some good humor and some good long term goals keep me coming back to this one. MC is adorable and relatable as a kind of bumbling dragon and you can't help but root for him to be understood by the humans of the world.

If you're looking for a serious overarching plot though, I don't think you're gonna find it here, at 100+ chapters now and nothing in sight. It might develop one later but wouldn't be worth it if you're not... more>> already enjoying the early chapters.

Give it a look for some lighthearted entertainment but there are some problems.

A single chapter of this isn't really fulfilling (need to stop myself from reading the latest instantly) strongly recommend binging as there just isn't enough developments. It also has that ever prevalent game stat and skill system that quickly bloats some passages, seriously overkill but just skip past it. <<less

First things first. This is no "Kumo Desu ga, Nani ka?" !

Second: dont expect too much from the title. Story has fights but the MC doesnt feel as op as one things he should.

So if you come because of the recommendations of said story, then dont expect something like: "wow that spider is badass, but a dragon sounds like rampage!"

This is a rather light hearted reincarnation story, with a MC who isnt the type to slaughter everyone for his/her revenge of his/her convinience and doesnt give up his/her believes, often... more>> doesnt do things the most efficient way, but rather his/her way and instead of being a lone wolf story he/she (tries) to socialize.

MC after all begins the story getting born and slowly learning the rules of this world, while still trying to keep the values of the human life.

My actual rating: 4.4/5. Quite enjoyable, but deserves a better score than it has. Dont be too salty about the spider.

Answers to criticism:

-lizard: eh. Its valid. But guess its because "MC knows, we know, lizard doesnt."

-MC is a wuss: thats the personality he has. I like it that he tries to uphold his human values and adopts them later on. Just learn how to quit early if you feel like you wont like him.

Sidenote: I quit reading Kumo Desu ga, Nani ka? Because I felt it had to many plotconviniences. I still read the manga since its still a good story and can recommend the ln. Again. Calm down, see the work as it is and dont sh*t on it because you read farther then you should have. <<less

This novel is not that bad. Good settings; MC is not too op, so it is not that boring to read; characters are developed. But, the only real problem that I see is mc-rs personality. He reincarnated into a CARNIVOROUS dragon, evolved into a species that LIKES MASS MURDER, so why does he hate taste of blood and acts like some stupid naive brat?! Where the heck did his dragon instincts go?! The scene of dragon trying his best to COOK MEAT makes me scream in agony! But after I... more>> forced myself to ignore it, I found this novel quite easy to read. My score is 4/5. <<less

It's boring. Its an ok unique slice of life but never really grabbed me. The MC is alright, but not impressive. It isn't that the novel is bad per se; but it feels exceptionally underwhelming especially when paired with its setting. I mean come on: an evolving dragon MC trying to become the strongest sounds bad ass. Unfortunately, it doesn't read that way.

Light-hearted and enjoyable daily-life novel

Though MC might be annoying due to his cling to humans and desire of "rightful path" the story itself is not that bad as people wrote below.

Not nearly as bad as people are making it sound. Yes, the MC is stupid but the plot does a good job of mitigating that by forcing him into situations were he has to make decisions he doesn't want to in order to survive. In the end we get entertained regardless of the stupid MC.

Judging from the previous reviewers, this has a lot of bad things but I can only tell you this, this one has a slow start that most of the readers feel boring but those things are because the protagonist is still new to the world and doesn't even go outside the area he lives in for a while because he doesn't have the capabilities yet.
Please keep that in mind while reading this and read it till the latest chapter (which for now is 89) and when you reach near... more>> that chapter things start to get serious so just, first enjoy for the experience of a dragon protag being new to the otherworld then slowly but surely it will build up on its own. (May change depending on the next chapters) <<less

Read Chapters : 64

The only interesting thing going here is getting incarnated to a dragon + game elements. The MC is shortsighted and seemingly unable to adapt to his present situation. This story, at the beginning, had potential but is slowly going downhill. Plot is very slow. MC's appeal is disappearing. I don't see where this is headed...

i recommend to read this novel if you want a stupidly retarded MC who is only alive due to plot armor.

also the real cringe worthy factor of this novel is the naivety of the MC. example he doesn’t want to use his skills because he thinks they are “evil”.

the MC pretty much only has one goal and this is to get a human form...

if I could rate less than 1/5 I would.

This dragon (and story) is pathetic, the author tried (and failed) to make the story sound cool by making our MC a dragon. Yet, he use this material poorly, there is nothing cool about a dragon d*cking around hunting turtles. In Kumo Desu ga, our MC was a spider, so she started out weak but this sh** is a dragon, there is no point making him weak if we all know that he’s going to be OP anyway. All the battle are meaningless and boring, this is light novel, not... more>> a pokemon gamelog, no need to describe every mob battle with "it's not very effective" <<less

This started out decently until the dragon tried to befriend humans then it turned to sh*t in my opinion. I mean I get that he is lonely but he seems to forget he is a dragon easily and the fact the he just walked out in front of armed people just demonstrates how lacking in foresight he is. Then we have merciful adventures who let a potential fortune walk away because a girl in the party (which I don't believe because adventurers aren't supposed to be such gentle people)... more>> asked them to, I would think the senior guy accompanying them would be smarter. Anyways seems there will be some moments in the future which will irritate me greatly so I dropped it after that event. Good luck to anyone reading it and hope they like it better than me. <<less

I am going to start off by saying that this series isn't a masterpiece. Don't go into this expecting big twists in the story or for something to shock you. There are a few unique ideas and the series has so far done a good job of keeping a consistent tone, as well as not going overboard with inflating the MC's status with a ton of useless or overpowered crap. Furthermore, my possibly favorite part of this is that it isn't just a typical wish fulfillment story- nor is it... more>> nonstop tragedy (both of which are pretty common problems with isekai novels). Over all this is a decent action series that would make for a good manga or video game. (There actually is a manga, but it only has a few chapters so far and hasn't been updated in months.)

The chapters are pretty short and the translation quality is generally pretty decent. This series isn't exactly anything special, but it is still good enough to make for a good read and can make you want to come back wanting more. However now there is one serious problem that needs to be fixed before anyone new should pick this up and read it. And that is the translator. It isn't that they aren't doing a good job translating, but rather that they aren't translating at all.

The person who has translated the past eighty or so chapters has become too busy to put any time into this. They still occasionally release a chapter, though it is really only about once a month- if you are lucky. But that just isn't enough to make any progress at all- as I mentioned the chapters are short. Short enough that I would never call them chapters if I had another word for them, as they really are only a couple pages long at the most.

If a new translator picks this up, then it is my opinion that this would be a must read if you are bored and have nothing to do. But until then, best to just wait this out. <<less

This is my first review if I remember it right I am dying to write it thanks to many reviews here

First off let's start with our MC, he's in every sense in the word stupid very stupid but that okay I mean not everyone is calm headed individual nor smart nor cunning. But he always try to do his best to survive and can be pretty emotional as well as better described as shonen character. What makes him insteresting start at ch 90~ ish after the first twist when he... more>> choose to become a disaster class dragon just to save the village. Several chapter after that you will notice how inside his head he didn't become cynical or dropped his wish to become human but what wasn't said didn't mean he didn't think of it. He's shown that he started to avoid civilisation and always keep in mind about the time limit until he have to part ways with his friend while having fun with them. Honestly I feel that he have matured even if only a little bit and it feels refreshing compared to some other MC I read that despite the suposedly a tragedy or character development yet remain totally the same only with their character shift when it's needed or suddenly they matured from that single event.

Now on the topic of survival you do notice that animal realisticly don't fight until near dead before deciding to flee right? It's part of nature to avoid danger unless in cornered state after all injuries are sustained after combat (albeit I admit this novel didn't potray it well and like another reviewer said that number is just there for show) and as you get injured the more your body condition fail you (in this novel I remember it being potrayed as well not bad I guess) you may not even capable to hunt for your meal which mean dead. So having MC fight with weaker enemy and flee from stronger or equally powerful opponent is fair. The one that I feel odd is how many other MC who started off weak fight with stronger opponent like there's no tomorow. And this isn't cowardly at all to flee from fight is the right of everyone just as much as deciding to fight is. What cowardly is when you have to fight and yet decided not to and flee or doing any other action rather than fight so this MC isn't a coward he will fight stronger enemy if he have to just that he will flee when there's no reason to fight. For instance against little rock dragon to save the village he have to kill a human and that he do rather than fighting a losing battle which may result in more victim (in story) or borderline 'how the hell did he do that' or an ass pull being played (reader perspective)

And don't forget to those who read this novel. Dragon have a very long lifespawn those super powerful and wise dragon you expected from this MC may have lived for thousands of years as measuring unit alone (depending on setting the measure may have been hundred though) now if you remember that the MC hasn't even reached one thousand year and that stupidty can be cured by time he still have time to grow out of it (albeit the novel will be finished far before it which can mean he will still be stupid by the time the novel end) I will said that he's plenty young and still have a lot of time to grow into wonderful dragon

Drop this novel if you can't stand reading until the first twist honestly it didn't get much better suddenly. It is a nice novel that I would recomend if you are patient with MC character and slow plot progression <<less

The MC is a retard. Basically, he is stupid. It would rather run with high risk of dying than fight with great chance of winning. He kept spewing out bullsh*ts about how he don't dare to use a skill in battle because he dididn't know what it exactly does, but never actually try it even once. He is even going on the policy of anything with status higher than half his status is stronger than him. So if you like stupid MC you go on and read. Personally I think... more>> the stupid part is ok but this one has gone too far to the land of retards. <<less

This is an bellow average series in the beginning, but it grows on you as it goes on. The chapters are really light and you could probably finishing reading all of them (including the jn) in two or three sittings. Dragon egg it's not a deep series nor tries to be, it's just one to have fun while watching an rpg world from the monster perspective without he right away becoming human (like) again.

I'll make this short. This thing had promise, at the very least after the MC's time with the first heroine I was hopeful that this thing had more to offer. Many chpts later, I'm left wondering why I thought that. This thing is just another Re:Monster. environment and circumstances changed, but the general story stays the same. "Day 50, I killed this and ate that", "Day 161, I killed this and ate that" and so on and so on. A meaningless log of a monster's choice in the menu. Really,... more>> this is worth no one's time. <<less

This WN is a good breather from all of those edgy, revenge driven MCs. Instead, this MC just wants some friends, and tries his best to get them, even to the point of putting his life on the line to do so.

+ Chapters are a good length, not too long or too short.

+ Author does a good job of making you want the next chapter

- Some of the writing may seem repetitive/simple (I jumped here, and then jumped there)

The MC actually makes decisions that impacts the story and exhibits growth. His available evolutions are determined by a karma system, keeping track of his evil and good deeds. So has a lot of day to day events building up to what happens later.

... more>>

following RPG conventions, has an Appraise skill called "God's Voice" that gives him information on objects. This "voice" has its own agenda, urging the MC to 'become stronger.' Goes with the MC being naive that he has to rely on "voice" while it may have an independent goal


For growth, starts out as a monster that has the description 'kill on sight.'


Evolves into a stronger 'child' dragon that can fight other monsters. Then upgrading skills, going from being attacked to attacking other monsters to teamwork with other monsters.


Chapters are short (3 ~ 5 pages), so easier to sample from time to time than binge.

for full review:

Only problem I have with it is the 'Long Separations' tag is not to be underestimated. There are a few subplots that get hinted at and apparently dropped... evident there are gods, but guess MC has to be stronger to deal with them. And there are times where reader has spent a bunch of chapters with a character, then say goodbye forever to them. This feels unnecessary since there are chapters from alternate perspectives, writer could easily give an update every 50 or 100 chapters because there are unresolved points that the story seems like it should return to, but doesn't.

Aside from that, the story can be surprising without pulling tricks. Aside from the 'Wandering Egg' title to blaze through levels (and evolve quicker than other characters), other skills are achieved through his own effort. Story doesn't cheat by giving him a new skill out of nowhere or have an incredibly important item appear before him. It still contains surprises and builds to some satisfying moments.

Comes down to MC. Annoying that there is no context for this character aside from Japanese Male, nothing on previous name, age or how he died. Have to discover his character by his actions; naive enough to be lead astray but tries to be good, prone to acts of malice and compassion. He manages to be surprising, which makes him difficult to sell without spoiling what he does.

I skip over all the battles, they're so boring to read; though I don't think it's the main part of this novel. The only reason why I'm reading this is the main character is a dragon; seeing him dealing with dragon's problem in human's way. You would rather not seeing him act like a true Plague Dragon and go rampaging in the village, right?

The MC is stupid, naive, etc... However, it's how the MC is. You can't ask for a MC of one novel to act like another's.
