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

Description

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!”

AT FIRST I THINK this one had some interesting setting, but after repeatedly look at this PC's horrible character, I've fed up with it.
This is just a story about a overly coward MC which miraculously able to survive on that world.

Note: that miracle only happen because he is the MC, so yeah, if there's someone who still follow this series, GOOD LUCK.

Additional: I don't know how to make a rate, but if I should give it, I'll give it 2/5.

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

It's neither great or good, only decent.

The protagonist isn't particularly unique, but his dialogue and thoughts are entertaining enough to carry the novel.

The pace of the novel is pretty slow, but not unbearably so. Just when it arguably gets too SoL, it becomes obvious that events are brewing in the background.

My biggest issue right now is that the protagonist changes location drastically after the first arc and meets a new cast of side characters with the old ones probably not appearing for a long while. That said, the old side... more>> characters are referenced enough that it's likely they'll be relevant again. <<less

Now, don't be such mudsticks. It gets better around chapter 80. He drops some naivety, and starts going places. Not the best story, but is a 3/5, no more, no less.

Ok, after reading up to chapter 28, I can only say I quite like it. Problematic is that the english for 29 and the following chapters took a turn for the worse. I hope the guy gets a editor soon...

The story is reminiscent of Kumo Desu ga, Nani ka?, after 28 chapters its quite hard to see were this story is heading at the moment, so im going to say just from the writing style its 4/5 – maybe thats just from the previous translators taking some libertys with... more>> the material. <<less

This series had a potential to be great well that passed on, it still has a potential to be good if the author can get his sh*t together. The MC should get over being a human, he doesn’t need to live as a dragon, he has intelligence use it in his development instead of whining all day and just crave for missing the benefits of being a human. Seriously all those whining is killing this series

20 chapters in and essentially reads like a stats catalog for a badly designed game with many redundant skills. Author tries to be funny with some of the skills and simply fails imho. Close to no plot progression and maybe one event of any significance. Furthermore, the mentality of MC is just all over the place and lacks consistency.

this novel has few translated chapters currently but the battle system is similar to Kumo Desu ga, Nani ka? So I believe it has potential so get ready when theres more chapts to mass read.

Edited:My bad, after reading somemore its like the reviews above me say the main char is naive and in a bad way too and usually hes just a really boring guy which tries to imitate some other novels self-talking eg. Kumo Desu ga, Nani ka? And in the end just self-talks about really boring stuff.

Also he... more>> is so caught up with the so called “getting along with humans” so much for really no reason which limits his future cos most of his decisions are made around “getting along with humans” and the author is trying to make a bad joke where “Ohh im trying so hard to get along with humans but the system keeps trolling me to take the wrong direction”.

And as for his so called “strategy” in battles he just refuses to use skills with an excuse like “hey if I use this skill others may think im not a nice guy so lets not use it JUST IN CASE even though my fking life is on the line” and in the battle he just stalls and stalls for time and does nothing else really and finally the author decides its time for him to “win” without the efficient use of his previous wasted time he just wins because he gets some lvs randomly (not dramatically at all) which he could just had farmed earlier (he refuses to farm skill lvs too cos its the same as always he wants to be a “nice guy”) and saved time in the battle for writing better/more stuff. Basically the author just has a “i’m weaker now but i’m gonna defeat this stronger guy somehow without any so called power ups for no reason” but is just really bad at doing it.

Tbh the direction for his evolution path and skills seems to be unique and has potential but really the author just does not know how to use it well. Yup and as for the plot its like the other reviews said little to no plot or rather I could say the author doesn’t really have a direction for now <<less

It's not the best WN ever, but it's also not total trash compared to some I've seen recently (a specific one about a blind toddler that loves to basically rape her maids).

The big issue is that around chapter 60 random chapters are deleted leaving holes.

My thoughts after reading the novel:

The fight scenes drag on faaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaar too long. Some fights are interesting, but there will be some where you'll be accompanying the protagonist in some excruciatingly grindy battles (and monologue). My recommendation, if a fight becomes uninteresting because 1) it becomes a curb stomp battle or 2) it takes up 2 or more chapters, skip to the end. The author give a "relatively" good "summary" to what had occurred during the battle.

One of my biggest complaints is that there is not enough character development and... more>> relationship building. As as a great person said: "The humans are the focus, everything else is furniture." (In this case, the "humans" would be the "monsters" ironically.) Even though it's nice to see the cast slowly grow in power, their personalities and humanity stagnate, neither improving nor worsening. The author neglects the these human elements in favor of "hey, how powerful can I get?" I do agree that wildly changing characters is a bad thing, but there needs to be at least a change that is moderately noticeable. I'm not going to go into the character of the protagonist. Other far superior reviews have already done a review on the protagonist character. (In short, he sucks and fails to grow.)

If you're looking for a power fantasy, look elsewhere. The author sets up the story in that when the main character overcomes struggles and reaches milestones, the MC spouts out regrets and complaints. The successes are often not rewarding for the reader (in this case, me). If you're looking for a "friendship" fantasy (err... is that what they call them?), definitely look in the other direction. Though this novel may have some interesting relationships, I would personally look elsewhere. <<less

Dragon’s Egg itself is a 5/5 to me maybe because I like good level system novels

btw there are still a LOT of raws left of Dragon’s Egg. Can't wait to read them!

the translations would be somewhere between 3/5 to 4/5 (I can't judge this well because I do not have the proper experience/knowledge required to do so) cause I think they use google/bing translate and do a lot of editing to fix it up (I could be totally wrong about this so if I am please excuse me).

but I'm... more>> still very thankful for the translators because if it wasn't for them I would not have come across such a series like Dragon’s Egg so a personal word "thank you".

p.s. I was lucky as hell to find this series with it only have a 3.3/5 rating. <<less

It's a fantasy combat isekai down to its core. Having said that, the series embraces the gaming stat/growth system unabashedly, which I have to regard as a considerable plus-- if it gets introduced, use it, don't just abandon it a few chapters later.

The world, settings, and characters are all fairly stock.

There's a fair bit of combat in here and, after nearly 200 chapters, it drags on a bit. Its saving grace here is that at least some of them have unusual resolutions that aren't a case of a last minute... more>> power up.

Middlin', mediocre, average, standard, is how I'd have to wrap. It isn't bad, but there's nothing particularly outstanding. Note that there are some (not many) chapters whose translations are of particularly frustrating quality, if that is a concern.

Spoiler

My primary objection to this series is that there are unresolved plot hooks that have persisted for over 100 chapters, with no movements towards conclusion, or even progress, in sight. It's almost like the author decided to reboot the series in the middle.

While the story itself is all right, most of the translators who picked it up have a less than fullfilling understanding of the English language. While the grammar is usually not blatantly incorrect, word choice and sentence structure often leave a lot to be desired.

Take note that around chapter 50/60 someone called mothbalde or whatever takes over, and they have a lot of broken links; I think like 7 chapters have been missing so far.

Therefore, I highly recommend that you go to Reincarnation translation's chapter 37 and read from there.... more>> about the story itself: the main character is in fact a huge idiot. But the story is enjoyable, even if his encounter

and eventual friendship

I'm suprised I thought we will be able to see the life of a dragon instead we get to see a sissy boy running away from worms and weak creatures and destroying the name of dragons not to mention that he is not that smart normally -.- and gets manipulated and making things difficult for no reason "lets become strong I want to be strong" next day resting in a cave and cooking mushrooms for days to come while chasing monkeys that steal his dried meat.............................................. if it wasn't for... more>> the MC learning ability and thinking he would have died already.

Colclusion: the MC is a normal being that makes mistake BUT Learns from he/she mistakes so if u can pull through the nonsense that's happening u will be fine all in all this novel isn't a most but quite interesting and unusual Worth reading slowly don't force ur way and just enjoy the bad and good. (This is a review after 40 chapters) <<less

The thing is this is a generic grindfest with little to no character progresion. Everything is done with mythical beasts that run on for way too long. It's gets pretty generic once you read past chapter 10 and you can predict most if not all of the chapters that are going to hapen. Start reading if you like the battle filed novels. A side from that it has not one shred of what is on that picture.

The story is so so but still a ok read if you're bored. The theme of starting out as an egg is something I have not seen before. The character itself is most of the time too stupid and spineless to use his acctual abilities, he is a dragon who is spreading disease from a kind of dust that falls from his wings but apperently it is not a passive but a active ability which is weird. Further more I was left cringing at all the times he could win... more>> if he just used his given abilities but he somehow survives by a random stroke of luck. These latest chapters as of now (around 90) are meh.

Spoiler

the slime is a cheat character who can do everything and somehow even is hard enough to break a dragons claw on impact which is dumb. There is no survival of the fitest in his mind even after all what he has been through, from egg fighting even without hatching to infant who has to fight to survive and evolve which he has a cheat for, he can't throw away his naivity and desire to cling to being human, which is the reason he chose the dark dragon path, it said some individuals can humanise their form.
also there is a fully evolved lower earth dragon he fights as a baby but he wins, like what the f**k.

[collapse]

all in all, the character is being a pu**y and somehow must be mentally retarded to not have his mindset change from monsters trying to kill him with all intent of eating him. the slime is a cheat character who can do everything and somehow even is hard enough to break a dragons claw on impact which is dumb. <<less

Interesting story about a Protagonist who starts off as a Dragon Egg before evolving to different forms of Dragons, the protagonist is funny thinking about trying to get humans to like him but ends up in a way failing to do so and trying to acquire the ability to change into a human form for himself so he can go to a village near by

I liked it at first because it seemed like the author was making the MC enjoy being a monster but he constantly pushed the idea of the MC wanting to become human. That idea really pissed me off because anyone with half a brain and even remotely knows what a dragon is, would never want to be human again, for a short period at least, but here is this MC that spent ~1 year< in a dragon body and became companions with a great partner but.... Spoilers =_=

Ugh I can't... more>> express my hatred for that trope. I can stand a MC being absolute garbage weak for over 100 chapters but I can't stand a absolutely stupid MC. I despise them with a unquenchable rage. I'm sorry for hating really stupid characters. Like I can stand The Strongest System and A Will Eternal because they get smarter MCs with at least a bit of guts

then again that is my opinion and you might like it more from what I said above but keep in mind that at around chapter 60 it gets heavily MTL which sucks because the text is both hiragana and katakana making a mass of some unreadable parts. I'm done with my rant sorry of this dropped your opinion of it many folds <<less
