You can look at my past reviews to know that I am generally pretty generous with ratings.

Pros: Interesting Backstory, cool magic, mysterious elements, don't know where the plot is going to go. Also I love an OP protagonist.

Cons: Shallow side characters, only seem to exist to provide contrast for the MC, but even MC is pretty shallow so far. Plot seems like it is incredibly rushed, like A happens, he does X, then B happens, so he does Y, then C happens, so he does Z. He hasn't been proactive... more>> at all, except for getting stronger.

There seems like there is a lot he could do, but doesn't even consider doing it. Doesn't really feel like anything matters, because MC can win in any situation, and random things always seem to turn out in his favour. Bit of a Mary Sue in that regard, not because he is strong, but because the way people react to him is always convenient for him to basically show off with no real danger

Right now I'd just say its pretty dry and unemotional. Its more like we are spectating a character, than actually reading about someone's story. Kinda feels like I am reading a synopsis <<less

The translator here! I'm not that great at writing reviews so here's my verdict.

This novel is for anyone who likes a fast-paced fantasy story with a strong MC. I recommend giving it a go whether you came from the manhwa or not!

Note: I am just doing an overview for those who wanna read the novel and don't mistake it for review.

Comparison b/w manhwa and novel: First of all, there are no major changes in the novel compared to manhwa. I personally like the manhwa version compared to the novel. The reason for it is obviously the novel update frequency when compared to manhwa and manhwa itself is quite detailed, to be honest.

My personal thoughts: For me, this story is quite good when there is nothing worthwhile to read. The OP and... more>> all-knowing MC is what I like about this novel. His personality, charisma, and tastes in women are quite eye-catching features for me. Fighting scenes are detailed and the art (in manhwa) is satisfying. The elements introduced are just good enough to be not much complicated. I don't know if this novel is romance oriented but the simple harem is obvious at first glance.

About the Translations: One important thing is that the current translator decided to drop this. Apparently, the author read the novel (don't know how much) and decided to drop it because he was maybe disappointed in the story.

An all-rounder novel for the readers who are bored can read it by purchasing it as the translations are not gonna resume any time soon. <<less

I hope this gets picked up.

As of chapter 6, I am addicted.

Tried the manhwa but it doesn't feel the same.

You are going to know right away if this is the novel for you after the first couple of chapters.

If this was written badly this would be pretty average, I really really want to read more.

Great novel, the manhwa is awesome so is nice to have the novel too. Pretty sure there must be much stuff missing on the visual that can only be found on here. Like how the MC can get so strong in a single night, the manhwa we get only a panel here I hoping for some explanation.

Hope the translation gets soon to manhwa part its not like its too far.
