If I wanted to be a little mean, I could describe this story with a single sentence: "Yet another Toika novel."

Premise: A fantasy world is on the brink of destruction after one of the empires discovers, and unleashes, an undead curse that threatens to kill all living things on the continent. The goddess in charge first sends heroes from her own world to deal with it, but they all succumb to the curse, so he switches to reincarnators as a last ditch effort. Our MC is one such reincarnator, who... more>> wishes for immortality and infinite growth potential in exchange of his services, and due to a case of classic "literal genie" wishgranting, ends up as a low-level skeleton with the ability to infinitely strengthen himself with the bones of his fallen opponents. The local RPG system works with levels, with each of them being a "tier". People have to first qualify for leveling up by reaching a certain sum of stat points, which are granted through achievements, leveling skills through use and by buying stat-increases in the Goddess' Shop. However, since the protagonist can absorb the stats and skills of his opponents, his power level pierces right through the stratosphere, much to his peers' bafflement.

Characters: The MC is pretty much your usual Toika protagonist. He is a hard worker who is also really bad with people, preferring to swindle and manipulate them instead of properly connecting with them, trough. He is also a bit of a tsundere. The side-cast so far includes Jin, another unfortunate undead horse he figuratively takes under his wings, the pretty shop keeper lady, the pretty low level heroine with a crush on him, the pretty wizard girl, the pretty elf and the pretty dryad princess. Following Toika's track record, I would not be surprised if all of them ended up in his harem. Yes, including the horse. Jokes aside, the side-cast is not particularly developed so far.

Plot: The entire plot also follows the ebb and flow of Toika's other works: The MC travels around to grind something to power up, but stumbles upon some kind of strong enemy, then in a daring attack he beats the enemy, uses the drops and materials to power himself up even further, then uses the shop to buy stuff to power himself up even further, then his skill or class or items or whatever evolve, giving him new options when he goes to another place to grind for powerups, until he stumbles upon a strong enemy, rinse and repeat. Sometimes we have slightly longer breaks, where we get some world-building or get info regarding the empire and the curse drip-fed to us, but the author never spends enough time on this to flesh these parts out, instead throwing the MC right back into the meat-grinder after a chapter or two. As such, just like all of Toika's other works, I can confidently say that this is a story entirely about the power-up cycle.

Conclusion: Overall this is really not a bad story. It's main strengths (good prose, entertaining character interactions, fun abilities and skill-combinations) and weaknesses (pacing issues, lack of proper worldbuilding, skills and powers getting forgotten and then rolled into other powers) are the same as with the author's other works. If you liked those, you will enjoy this one too. If you didn't, this work is not going to change your mind. <<less

It's a really good novel when you went with the flow but there are illogical things and it's for that I rated 4/5.

The concept is really good and it leads to funny situation.

... more>>
Spoiler

Even more when we discover the MC is not the only one in this situation and that there is worse than him. I mean the undead horse was hilarious (even if at first I dislike it)

[collapse]

The story flow is good and lead to different situation which I enjoyed reading.

The naming sense of the MC is just too good (you'll know when you'll read)

Now I will tell a few problems in this novel (it's problem only when you think too much so for an easy read it's negligible... Not mind f*cking errors)

one problem is how easy the MC level up his skills.... or the other way how hard it is for other heroes to level up their skill.

Spoiler

The MC can gain skills or proficiency in a skill by absorbing bones and thus it's easy for him to acquired skills and to level up these skills (though it's only for low level skills as of now).... So the MC, even as a low level, outclass others high level heroes in skill number and in skill proficiency.... And it's not the MC who said that but the author.

So there I must say : OK the MC surely had a lot more skills that high level heroes but it's impossible for him to be more proficient than them... I will be fair with you it was said only for his magic ability (at the time the declaration was said the MC was only a beginner at magic and only had a tenth or so of the mana capacity of the high level heroes if they split their stats equally...) So it basically say that nobody is a magician.... they can go to a fantasy world where magic exist and you even have wishes but nobody ask to have magic ???

[collapse]

Another thing

Spoiler

There exist Karma tokens extremely difficult to acquired who can only be obtain by doing some incredible feats... Or that's what everyone believe since the MC just need to literally play with low level monster to gain them, and when you gain a token you can have the other more easily than the first one (you need 10 identical tokens to gain a special skill and stats... and perhaps more)

Just by doing things the heroes should naturally acquired these token but no, it's very rare to have. I mean these conditions are dealing with a lot of monster with a specific type of magic to deal with a lot of monsters (Ah yes I forgot there isn't a single magician hero) or just slaughtering a lot of monsters, the heroes do that all days but they don't have the tokens WTF?!?!?

[collapse]

And to finish the last of my complain

Spoiler

The MC gained some achievements as if he was doing them in solo even when he have helpers.

Exemple :

  • when he killed a higher level monster with the aid of a hero of equal level than the monster and gained the achievement for having killed a higher level monster (So the achievement can become easily done with the aid of high level helpers)
  • When he killed a monster two levels higher than himself wit the aid of a hero one level higher than himself and gained the FIRST TIME IN HISTORY achievement for having killed a monster with two level more than himself (So nobody ever ask high level people to help them kill high level monsters????) -> It's really weird when you know that the heroes often help each others.
    [collapse]
Well that all I have to say about this novel for now, the last point is what forced me to write this review (I think a lot when I read and I have a... big mouth... and it was too much for me, if I didn't write the review I would have dropped the novel and since it's a good novel I didn't want to drop) <<less

This is a Toika novel, so expect the fourth wall breaking and skeleton jokes. This is like a VRMMO novel with the grinding and stuff at the start, but it will probably stop or lessen at the middle parts. Everyone expects it to suddenly at the end the MC killing the last boss like a trash mob, probably.

Toika really wants to make a novel without a harem (but forced by fans to do it anyways) so he probably made the MC a skeleton and I envision him laughing like a... more>> villain saying "NOW NOTHING CAN STOP ME FROM MAKING A NOVEL WITHOUT A HAREM"

I pray to whatever deities out there that he succeeds. <<less

Sorry to be the guy that sh*ts on the new novel but, for these 25 chapters (each 'part' is as long as a normal chapter) I've felt like I was reading a videogame log.

To be more specific, a MMORPG log.

The MC transmigrates as a skeleton hero to purge the undead and so far he just kills monsters, gains skills and stats. The skill list gets longer until you're just bored to read everything once the status screen shows up.

Stats are also just numbers that mean very little to the story,... more>> serving only to compare the MC strength with that of the next monsters. There is no story so far and also no characters. His only interactions are with some other heroes in a chat ability he gets, but even that is quite mild. Just a bunch of random people talking in a chat about levels, quests and itens. The only difference with a common MMO chat is the lack of spammers selling and buying game currency.

The translation is great as most novels in wuxiaworld are, but unfortunately I can't recommend this, unless you enjoy reading about a skeleton mindless killing mindless monster mobs and getting their skills with endless repetition.

But hey, a lot of people love "Kumu Desu ga, Nani Ka" while I find it boring and repetitive, so maybe you'll like this too, which is, in my opinion, very similar. <<less

AKA Grim Reaper: Origins

Toy Car's usual genre-savvy protagonist meets Brook the Straw Hat, complete with all the skull jokes. Really, if you at any point liked the author's other stories, you'll probably like this one. It's exciting and well-paced so far, at least, though our sketagonist's getting stronger quickly, so hopefully it'll still be interesting when he's powerful.

Plus, since he's a skeleton, we definitely don't have to deal with a harem strangling the action/adventure and turning this into a rom-com. Definitely not. I hope.... good gods, I hope, because this'll... more>> just get weird if it does. <<less

If you like infinite competitive dungeon, you'd love this. Basically same concept, except hes a skeleton and everything that he does has bones involved. It's not surprising since its written by the same author. The MC thought process is smarter than a moron though, which is better than his older works where everyone was basically a big fat idiot at first. This one actually has a decent common sense. Lol

It was really good in the beginning, with a really strong start, but as the story progressed I found it to be a bit boring and predictable. Everything becomes really repetitive. Hero kills something, gains new skill, and this repeats with every enemy he meets. There is no goal in sight, its just a mindless power up with no real adversary. As soon as he starts a fight you already know he will most likely win the fight and gain a new skill at the end of the "struggle". Its... more>> just rinse and repeat. At the current chapter, MC already has a wall of text filled with skills.. And it just keeps increasing.

The only saving grace and the thing that kept me going were the witty remarks which are made occasionally by the MC, which I must admit are quite fun to read from time to time. All in all its a decent novel to pass some time with as long as you dont think too much about the story. My rating for the novel so far:

Translator: 10

Story: 3-4

MC: 7

Side character: 4-5 (not many side characters have been introduced so far into the story, but from what have been introduced.. In my personal opinion, there is little to no depth to their character) <<less

First off, each "part" is about the length of a normal Web novel chapter, so the author has that going.

The premise was an interesting idea, but maybe it was just my misreading it, but I thought the story would be more about the challenges of being an undead while his friends who weren't kept trying to kill him. Instead its about the MC who is undead and killing his natural teammates, the other undead. Not necessarily a bad story idea, but just not the one I was expecting or hoping... more>> for.

Here is the major flaw of this story in my eyes - the story revolves heavily around stats and levels, making a big deal out of it most of the time, but then the MC pulls these miracle wins out of his hat all because he stabbed harder after dying. Now he gets a stat boost from dying, but there is a significant difference between level 1 and 2 but he ignores that? Find myself not caring about the stats, which means I find myself not caring about the main portion of the story. <<less

A surprisingly good read. At first, I had my expectations lowered thanks to some comments, which I feel judged the contents too early. I can understand why considering the chapters are divided into parts and uploaded at different days or weeks and some chapters do contain quite a bit of log which you can just skim through and partially ignore.

It's not an overly complex novel, but it does have some depth to it. The MC isn't mindlessly leveling up, there is a goal and I would say it's a bit... more>> unfair to call the side characters undeveloped as of chapter 17. Most of the side characters have yet to show themselves, the ones that do only meet for a brief period of time. The one side character that is sticking around the MC (that will not be described because spoilers) is decently fleshed out... the irony in that statement (which you'll know once you get to that part).

Well, that's all I really wanted to say and I hope you give it a try. <<less

This is pretty much the only novel you'll find where the hero gets it on with his horse.

And they're both skeletons.

Jokes aside, SFF, is a decent read. It has somewhat of a similar style to other works from Toika, but up to now it feels somewhat more fleshed out than other novels. It will take time before we can see if the character gets any development (in character).

In terms of story logic, the novel is a bit iffy. The novel is more of a casual read than a serious... more>> one, and the writing itself makes this quite clear. It is fairly well paced, although there is a danger of the MC becoming OP very quickly.

Overall, would recommend. If you're not afraid of horses, that is. <<less
