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


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

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!”

Okay, I admit to the other reviews saying that the MC is annoying as f**k. The MC is a disgusting hypocrite, an idiot and a coward. But the interesting world building more than makes up for it in my books. The story isn't the first to try to take up the concept of a non-human MC trying to find a way to get along with humans (though finding lesser success than his counterparts), but that in itself is rare.

I have high hopes for the stories character development seeing at where... more>> this is going at. The average rating of 3-3.5 is quite harsh in my opinion, it should at least have a rating of 4. But well, most people can't tolerate a 'bad' MC. If you can, then you might find the story enjoyable. <<less

Yes, many whom of thinks this is such a sloppy works of novel but it doesn't always relate a protagonist with cool head and demeanor. Every individual that readers thought of a main character as clever and strong is always being represented throughout many things but come on not every individual is smart as we think. Think for our world that modern society produced many excelled smart generation but in 1 of those amounts that have lacking in mental capacity. Showing that not every main character you think is smart... more>> and badass.

Surely MC here is very naive and stupid but he keeps ongoing to many survival odds he faced. Even he's an idiot he thinks the consequence of himself can be a danger to everyone. Not because of his sinister looking type breed of a dragon but his hazardous breath and poison emanating from his body as a dark/plague type dragon. He thinks too little from himself but he tried as much he can do to beat and escape any danger. Sometimes he is brave and sometimes or often a scaredy cat. Even though his opponents are monsters at the level of adventurers that can fight C-B rank, he thinks too much of escaping by it even though he's an A-class dragon, not knowing he defeat in a whims if instinctively or whits.

So fellow readers don't be disappointed about this dragon story. I assure you this is only the start of his adventure and whether he stay stupid or not as he grow its up to the author to decide if changing the mental capacity of MC is his remarks. <<less

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 like this because it's pretty much what a human do in situations he currently face I mean this is not a novel where the MC is a cultivator that can block out feelings to focus on the situation at hand NO! This is a MC that goes with the flow he needs to be stronger so he choose the evolution to save someone and not to save them later.

But he also choose the right evolution for that right moment to save someone and his life but after that he... more>> regret it same as us and the MC hates it that every-time he did something right the end result is he becomes a loner and hates it even more even the latest chapter evolution choices are like hermit type dragon a lonely road for him but he choose the strongest one to save someone again pretty sure that he will regret it after he save the person and leave the continent again. <<less

A story about a human reincarnating into a dragon. The main character is portrayed as a fairly nice person, without any particular hard past, so by default put the protagonist in a fairly unique position compared to the vengeful, "trash rejects" protagonists from other reincarnation stories. In fact, he is demonstrated to be a fairly limited protagonist, which is very unlike the I-Can-Do-Everything styled protagonists from other reincarnation stories (a pretty big plus as far story goes).

Like many other reincarnation stories, he ends up aiming to establish himself in human... more>> society. In the story, we get to see the protagonist interact with his environment and eventually gain new monster companions. This later plays an integral role in the story, a source of conflict on whether he should abandon his home and his monster companions in favor of joining a human society, which is rather interesting since most stories usually focus on making the protagonist as OP/strong as they possibly can in a short amount of time.

The villains in this novel are fairly straightforward, just plain evil. Fortunately, the villains, while morally wrong aren't some arrogant, incompetent rich noble that you meet every 30 chapters of a typical reincarnation story. They are demonstrated to be fairly powerful, and an obstacle that our protagonist strives to overcome.

There are also several elements of mystery which really spice up my interest in this novel. The origins of these villains, suspicious skills, his past, etc. His evolution path is also quite interesting. All his evolution options are fairly good choices given the situation and really puts some excitement as to what kind of creature he would become. In fact, the idea of leveling and evolving remains quite relevant so far in the novel.

I am giving this novel a plus in unique story and characters, and a double plus for making it doubly interesting. <<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)
