The Second Coming of Gluttony

Description

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

From the author of MEMORIZE:

“The son of god Gula has returned.”

I was lost in the world of gambling.

I turned my back on my family and even betrayed my lover.

I wasted every day of my life.

It was a life of tr*sh.

The reality told me thus:

That I would amount to nothing no matter what I did.

In order to change my pathetic life, I chose fantasy, instead.

Even then, it was the same story.

I wondered if salvation would come at the end of the long road.

But, I was forced to kneel down in defeat in front of a powerful entity.

The tower I built up with my own hands crumbled into nothingness.

Just for once, I dearly wished to know the truth about myself.

“Come closer, my child…”

I will not hold back this time.

My current Favorite novel, contains very realistic behaviors to the point where sometimes you feel like the author went through the same situations... The characters development are very fluid and makes sense, and whenever I start questioning things by finding loopholes I find the answers in the next chapter immediately like the author is listening to my thoughts. Ultimately I am very awe-struck by how amazing this author is, he makes your brain wander to places but the author decides the destination of those thoughts. The quality of this novel... more>> is insanely hard to maintain I hope he doesn't deviate from his current path. Oh and finally the translator of this novel deserves a kiss on the mouth, truly outstanding work from my perspective. <<less

I don't get it. How can this tr*sh of a novel be so popular? I mean there is literally nothing worth paying attention to in this story.

Plot is full of holes. MC is a cringy dense moron. World buiding is illogical. Supporting characters refuse to think for themselves when they are near MC so that author can show how 'clever' our MC is using them as a background.

But the most infuriating thing for me is of course the protagonist.

By the setting he is a 26yo gambling addict who has lost... more>> everything and reached the lowest lows. Surely he has seen and experienced a lot, so he should be more mature than others, no? But here he is, all naive and innocent, acting like a middle schooler in most situations. People all around him also treat him the same. Calling him "kid" "young man" "youngling" etc as if it's natural. What the **ck is this? 26yo kid? Really? Also it's annoying how in the world with a lack of morals and full of violence he is the only eunuch who can't even touch a girl's hand and goes nuts when a girl kisses him like a typical MC from Japanese novels. He should've been experienced somewhat with his girlfriend before at the very least, no? Shouldn't he be tough and mature, keeping composure in most situations? What is this nerd kid mode then?

I could let it be if he was 16 but not 26. Also, he should have experienced a lot of things through his vivid dream, it was even described in the beginning how clear he could see his past life. It was supposed to be the most precious thing he could get, but what have he done with it? Nothing. After first few chapters he forgot nearly everything about it.

I can continue with criticism about other things but I think it's already more than enough to see my opinion about this novel. Everything else is just as illogical as the MC. <<less

This is a brilliant novel. It's a true emotional rollercoaster. You feel the main character's struggles, his doubts, and you really sympathize with him, as well as the ones who don't forgive him. The action is fantastic as well, and the adventure is only getting started. 10/10 would recommend.

This is soooo gooood!!!!!

I hope this gets picked up again soon by a good translator course this instantly became one of my personal favorite novels in the genre. Its especially a cool take on the "second chance" troupe.

From me and many others, this is a 5/5 novel. I will guarantee that you will absolutely love this web novel if what you are looking for is a good story with characters that feel real. Over time without yourself even realizing it you find yourself invested, I promise. The sad thing is... more>> that the novel is currently dropped at chapter 56 due to it now getting enough readers and the translator not having enough time as well. I would never have picked this novel if not for its high rating, and when I read the synopsis I was still skeptical, that changed by chapter 15-20 though. The author os this novel is honestly quite good at making characters who feel real and aren't completely s*upid as well. This novel specifically though? It's really really really really really good. I recommend reading the other reviews for a better understanding as a whole. <<less

I don’t know how I even randomly stumble upon this novel but 10/10 no regret will do it again.

The arcs in this novel are really well written and they vary from one another, so much that it keeps you hooked. The author is really good at creating tension in the arc, in the latest translated arc, there were not that much physical fight or whatsoever but man... I got to say it’s one of the best one I had ever read from a web novel. Just from describing things and... more>> atmosphere he managed to make me gulped nervously many times.

The world building is also fun and I like how the author gives tidbits about the world in a sporadic manner, every information making you even more curious about the social and political situation in their world. Every new information made me go, wait a minute and scroll back to re read earlier chapter and once you did that things seems to click more but that’s only a small tiny piece of the puzzle on a gigantic puzzle board.

Hnggggghhhhhh I need more chapters!!! <<less

Absolutely fantastic read, but I just wish the release date was faster because I'm addicted. They do a good job though since the chapters are usually about 3 times the length of other novels. It seems to be coming out much more frequently and I will have to look into supporting the translator. =)

This novel exceeded all my expectations. During fighting and dangerous scenes, I felt like I was watching a horror movie. Emotional scenes brought tears to my eyes. The interactions between characters felt so realistic and enjoyable to read. MC felt like a real human being who makes mistakes, reflect on his mistakes, feels every emotion, the mental struggle to make correct decisions. The Character growth is done incredibly well. Other characters are also fleshed out, feels realistic and has distinct personalities.

The world building is divided into 3 parts so far... more>> tutorial, real world, fantasy world. Every single of that world was enjoyable to read which is rare as normally I always prefer one thing to another. Even the adventure parts where MC learns new things was something I was able to savor with relish. It was quite unique. It almost felt like I could never get bored from this novel no matter what happens. The start prologue - 2 chapters might be hard to get into but after that, you will find yourself getting immersed into the novel world, well starting any new novel is always hard for me so maybe it's just me.

The chapter length is 2x-3x big compared to other Korean novels. So don't look at 64 chapters and think it is a low number. It actually has enough story progress that will be a very enjoyable experience. <<less

Story seems planned out to be an OP MC fighting and winning against the dark forces with his co-star harem and one dimensional side characters.

I will acknowledge that the beginning 14 or so chapters introduced a well-used premise in an interesting new way, but the story's development is clearly straying from that original path.

This could be the fault of the translator, but all the characters ignore the character traits they were introduced with and revert to a happy-go-lucky personality around the MC. It's very difficult for me to engage with... more>> the struggles of those around the MC when their very real struggles disappear like smoke thanks to the help of the omnipotent MC who also has his own flaws completely fixed by chapter 38 and thus becomes a very generic MC.

If you've never read a story regarding an OP MC with a harem before, then you may find this story interesting and I encourage you to experience this genre while it is still a new experience. If you've tired of this genre already then I would advise you to stop reading this comment and look for another novel. <<less

Tl;dr Well-thought out, very deep MC, I've had to rapidly blink in public to keep from crying at times.

There is an interesting dynamic where the MC is considered tr*sh on Earth and as a rising star in Paradise, the alternate world. The MC isn't tr*sh because he's unlucky or something gimmicky, but because of his own choices. He used to be a kind, great dude, and ruined everything by developing a gambling addiction. At the beginning of the series we see him at his lowest, acting like an absolute bastard.... more>> He's the kind of person you might think the world might be better off without, someone who has fallen too far for redemption.

That's the thing: the author takes this character and has CRAZY CHARACTER DEVELOPMENT. If anything else, I think this novel teaches us the valuable lesson that even the most depraved people are people, can feel remorse, and can be redeemed. <<less

This is more of a rant than a review. Plenty of spoilers.

It's just a bit long. Feel free to skip around; I've outlined the key takeaways.

Note: I've changed my rating from a 3/5 to a 2/5 following C359. My reasoning is in 3rd section.

The Good:

... more>>
Spoiler

The beginning 50 or so chapters with the Tutorial and Neutral Zone were phenomenal. It was incredibly unique and we got to see the transformation of Seol being a piece of sh*t to a somewhat good guy. The plot was also intriguing and mysterious.

The plot has been mostly good and does keep me flipping to the next chapter wondering what's going to happen next. Even in the later chapters where it gets awful (next sections), the plot by itself is interesting. We see many interesting, diverse, and actually believable characters. The 6 crazies? Maldong? Cinzia? The mafia? I could go on. All of these characters have their own unique personalities and stay relevant to the story throughout the entire novel; they grow and develop as an actual person and not a decoration.

Networking within the Tutorial/Neutral Zone was emphasized because the people Seol makes friends with early on all appear 100-150+ chapters later. The perspective changing actually added a unique spin on some of the chapters that I definitely enjoyed and have grown to appreciate more after the fact.

The action scenes were also well done. All battles are pretty well described and flow nicely. It was definitely one of the stronger aspects of this novel. I really enjoyed how progression was handled for Earthlings - up until Seol got Level 5. I'm not sure how I feel about progression past level 5 for him because it seems like Gods and divinity are a dime a dozen. Fight scenes between powerful beings of divinity transform well-thought-out action sequences into dragon ball energy beam battles. However, there's really not enough information available at the moment for me to say this is a bad thing or not because it was just introduced.

But yeah, no matter how you splice it, the plot, action scenes, and character development - for side characters - have been pretty solid for a web novel. Now, if you've read this far, you're probably wondering why I'm only giving it 3/5 stars.

Well...

[collapse]

The Bad:

Spoiler

Seol. Holy fu*king christ, Seol.

Let's back up here. Seol wasn't just a gambling addict. He was a piece of tr*sh that was loathed by his family and loved ones. He was scum. He hit bedrock and could not get any lower than where he was at in the beginning of this novel.

So, how in the fu*k does this scum transition from the worst kind of human being to a petulant, immature man-child saint obsessed with hugging anyone with a pair of t*ts? Seriously. The moment the neutral zone ends, Seol becomes a baby who blushes when two people start going down on each other. How does this make sense? He's 26 and acts like a 9 year old. It's pathetic and ruins the immersion.

Let's make a list of things wrong with this novel:

  • Seol is a 26 year old man-child.
  • Literally everyone of note is South Korean.
    • Earthlings are called Earthlings for a reason (people from ALL OVER EARTH), but almost every Earthling Seol interacts with in the latest chapters are from Area 1 ----> South Korea. Uhm, what?
  • Seol never fails at anything.
    • I am not exaggerating. Some people only follow Seol because he literally has never failed at anything. It's almost a joke.
  • Seol never uses his abilities intelligently... because plot.
    • This will more than likely annoy the ever living h*ll out of you. A stray cat can utilize Seol's abilities better than Seol himself can.
  • The novel is classified as a "romance" and "harem" but nothing ever happens.
    • Seol is more dense than a metric ton of Osmium. He is so dense and pathetic with women that he makes Japanese betas look like purebred alpha males. In fact, it's a wonder that Paradise and Earth haven't been ripped apart or thrown off their orbits because I would argue that he's even more dense than a neutron star. Other reviews have gone in detail about how incredibly dense he is, so to spare you I'll opt out of elaborating.

Let me just emphasize once again that Seol is a man baby. His character is downright detestable and hypocritical. It's hard to read about someone who behaves like a prepubescent child. And before you even think it - I get it's supposed to be comedic, but it's really not funny when it happens so frequently. It's not something you would expect from someone who hit rock bottom and is just now coming back. Seol is not an innocent child. The author needs to stop pretending he is and then doing a complete 180 when things need to get serious.

[collapse]

The Incredibly Bad:

Spoiler

Now, I'm going to spoil the reveal of some characters. These are your last spoiler warnings.

Yoo Seonhwa is...

Spoiler

... all but confirmed to be Baek (i.e. the strongest Earthling in Paradise). This reveal is bullsh*t and makes no sense. Kim Hannah did extensive background research on Seol before attempting to recruit him and the author is trying to pass off that she and Sinyoung didn't know who Baek was on Earth?

W h a t

T h e

F u * k

For those unfamiliar with the significance of this reveal, Yoo Seonhwa is Seol's ex. She grew up with him and was his girlfriend until Seol degraded into total scum. It makes no sense why Sinyoung - the most powerful Earthling organization on Paradise and an even more powerful organization on Earth - wouldn't know who Baek was on Earth. It's actually more than reasonable to assume Kim Hannah should have known about Baek in some way.

Think about it: Seonwha had to come to Paradise somehow, right? If she performed well - or was even above average - in the Neutral Zone, her identity would have 100% not been a secret and Sinyoung would have marked her, exactly like they marked Eun Yuri. Even if Seonhwa "Baek" sandbagged her abilities in the Neutral Zone, she still more than likely would have had to join an organization by nature of being contracted or Invited. So Sinyoung, again, would have marked her. And being the powerful organization on Earth that Sinyoung is, they obviously would have wanted to keep tabs on the most powerful Earthlings, right? Sinyoung was known to do this with Earthlings that weren't even half as powerful as Seonhwa "Baek" was.

Keeping that in mind- Sinyoung is already reluctant to offend high rankers, but for whatever reason Kim Hannah (and by extension, Sinyoung) thought it'd be okay to try and ensl-ve the childhood friend and ex-boyfriend of the most powerful Earthling in Paradise? Are you fu*king kidding me?

This reveal is literally contrary to everything the first 100-150 chapters were about that also remain a constant theme throughout the entire novel. Go to Paradise. Treat it like a job, not a second life. That's the whole reason Seol had to "work" at Sinyoung on Earth in the first place. It makes no sense how Seonhwa kept her identity a secret (but not really) for so long. The whole "Sacred Empress" persona was pulled out of thin air for additional drama in preparation for a harem that will likely never happen - until the last chapters of the novel, at least.

The author essentially threw logic out the window with this dumpster fire.

And before anyone even whispers it in their minds: NO! Yuhui is NOT Seonhwa. People keep relentlessly saying this but forget Seol himself confirmed this. All pointers literally spell out Baek being Seonwha, which also matches what the Korean wiki and MTL raw translations say. For anyone reading this who disagrees with me - grow up. The author faked you out like he did a hundred other things. Accept it.

[collapse]

- - - - EDIT following Chapter 359 - - - -

Spoiler

Further, with this reveal, it's confirmed that Seonhwa is a complete hypocrite and sociopath. Seol's mother is the same way.. This entire novel is about Seol's abuse. Seonhwa trained Seol like a dog while he was on Earth to be her perfect 'boyfriend.' Seriously, Seol has been described by multiple people as 'perfectly conditioned' after witnessing his odd behavior. He has been brainwashed his entire life to think a certain way for his ex BY his ex; even Kim Hannah has said Seonhwa has him 'perfectly reigned in.'

Originally I had thought this was beyond pathetic but after reading the latest chapter I think it's just sad - Seol has been a victim of abuse his entire life. Think about it if the roles were reversed: take an impressionable, outgoing female named Kim (the stand-in for Seol) that's about 8-9 years old. Now imagine a similarly aged, but slightly older male helped by Kim's father to condition Kim for YEARS through positive/negative reinforcement in order to force Kim into listening to the male unconditionally. Are you starting to see something wrong with this now? Seol has been trained in the exact same way, with Seonhwa holding his leash. Seol has been conditioned to where he literally cannot think for himself anytime Seonhwa is involved.

And it's not just Seonhwa, either. There are many females in this novel that would like nothing more than to completely possess Seol. Even Yuhui, who people speak so highly of, took advantage of Seol in a weakened state and f*cking brainwashed him to be a 4-year old. The author has to have some sort possession-masochistic fetish or something. I can't see any other explanation.

There's just something not right about manipulating someone from childhood to be exactly who you want them to be. It's to the point where anytime I see these characters in the latest chapters I have to hold back my absolute disgust. And given that I have read the MTL spoilers and know exactly how this novel (and it's harem) is going to end, I am fast losing motivation to read the new chapters. Do not read this novel if you want a satisfying harem/romance/etc. novel. You will be immeasurably disappointed and completely revolted if you had even a sliver of ethical sense. Seonhwa doesn't get punished for being a manipulative sociopath. She gets rewarded for it. What the fu*k!!

This is psychological conditioning - brainwashing - at it's finest. I've come to discover this is part of what makes Seol such a moron. Again, I get it's supposed to be comedic, but in reality this novel has some fu*ked up implications.

[collapse]

- - - - END EDIT - - - -

There are several other reveals that make literally no sense. There are so many breathtakingly bad plot holes in this story that I actually have to close my eyes and pretend they don't bother me.

For example,

  • We actually don't see anyone not related to the MC training. No one but the MC and company actively get stronger and as such only the MC and company are active threats to the Parasite Queen who is sitting on her hands.
    • It's a bit shocking how humanity is basically incompetent in dealing with the Parasite threat; to the author's credit it is heavily implied that this is because the Parasite Queen had infiltrated Humanity's side and caused a lot of internal strife. But I'm not too impressed because there are about 100 better, less obvious ways you could actually go about sabotaging humanity and the Federation.
  • The Parasite Queen is a truly terrible commander. She could have ended the Federation and humanity's seven cities/countries within days but doesn't... because plot. It's like watching someone continually run into a brick wall while expecting something different to happen. For instance:
    • [Humanity] The Parasite Queen obviously knows about the Royal Oath and how Earthlings can't get to level 5 without royal approval. So why can't she send out a strike force composed of Army Commanders who are basically gods to assassinate the already weakened human royal families? Humanity and the Federation are on the losing side of this war, so it's not like the Parasite Queen has to fear an invasion from either side in the meanwhile. Further, the Executors are strong together but they mainly live in separate cities. Why can't this same strike force gang up on the Executors and take them down one by one? But that's just it - the Parasite Queen is incapable of using intelligent tactics and strategy. She is essentially giving out free level ups and contribution points to Earthlings as it is; the best of which will only get stronger. If she used her mob parasite army as a diversion and sent her strike force out to accomplish the real objective, humanity would be screwed. The result? Humanity's leaders die and Earthlings become irreparably weakened. Seol dead. Novel finished.
    • [Federation] Tigol Fortress is an important focal point for the invasion of both humanity and the Federation. But the Parasite Queen obviously knows that brute force doesn't work well against it after numerous failed attempts. So why keep sending out a mob army to do nothing but die? Instead, why doesn't she just concentrate her forces on the Spirit Realm? Kill everything. Lock it down and occupy it. Don't just send 1 commander, send like 5 or 6. Destroy the World Tree and permanently cut off the power source of Tigol Fortress by occupying the Spirit Realm first. Maintain the status quo and don't get greedy by attacking the humans/Tigol Fortress at the same time - at least not seriously. For fu*k's sake, it's easy to imagine what would happen if the Parasite Queen even managed to carry out a half-as*ed plan. The result? The Federation castrated, Tigol fortress doomed, humanity forced to the forefront of the war, and a nice new base for the Parasites to invade the Federation/Humanity from. Novel finished.
  • The MC takes Deus Ex Machina to a whole new level. Since the MC never fails at anything, the plot is always 1000% convenient. This minimizes any sense of urgency one may have because you already know Seol is going to win. This is your typical Shonen on steroids.
    • Seol's innate abilities are cool and all, but his most fearsome power is plot armor. If Seol decided one day that he wanted the Moon, then no matter what color his Nine Eyes showed, the Moon would soon hit a [Deus Ex Machina event] and then shrink and fly into his hand... because plot. This happens so frequently it can't even be called Deus ex machina anymore. It's just bad writing.
    • In one of the latest chapters, the villain even acknowledges Seol's plot armor. I quote: "'F*ucking hell...' At this point, she was beginning to wonder whether this planet called Paradise was actually taking this man's [Seol's] side." (CH. 336). Sorry Ms. Villain, you lost the moment Seol sprouted into existence; which, as another reviewer noted, is a miracle in and of itself.

And there's plenty more, believe me.

[collapse]

/end rant

Despite my very long ranting over some parts of this novel, I do believe it is worthwhile to read. There are some parts that are just truly terrible, but those are sparse enough to where I do not believe it degrades the worth of reading this novel. Give it a shot. Plus, if I were to judge based only on the first 50-60 chapters, practically everything would be 5/5 stars.

Keep in mind however, that this is a web novel. If you're looking for something perfect, look elsewhere. If you want something of similar quality to a light novel (with the exception of the translation which was excellent), look elsewhere. If you're not willing to have an active suspension of disbelief, look elsewhere. If none of this bothers you, then I'm sure you will at bare minimum enjoy the creative setting, plot, and characters.

Translation: 5/5 (very good translation!)

Plot: 2/5

Setting: 3/5

Style: 2/5

Characters: 1/5 (with Seol)

Characters: 4/5 (without Seol, but I'm not counting this rating)

In all, though, a solid 2/5 for the entire novel with the most up-to-date translation as of 06/01/2020. <<less

I was never actually going to read this since the synopsis didn't appeal to me at all, and it seemed as if it would be very boring with that synopsis, you know?

But I saw the reviews and thought, what's with this insanely high ratio of 5 stars? So I decided to read it at 11 PM. Now, it's 4:58 AM and my eyes hurt from the crying and the light mode. (But don't mind that)

First. The world is interesting. I gotta say that, because I really care about the... more>> premise when it comes to WNs, and no one seemed to be mentioning that in reviews, which was a reason why I was hesitant to read it. It's kind of hard to explain, but seriously. It's a little like the Tutorial is too Hard, or something. Anyways, seriously, read it and you'll understand.

Second. The characters. Well, the character development of the MC. He was an absolute scumbag before, and, well. Forgiveness won't come easily at all. I mean, he went back, and the contrast at the treatment of him from his family members to the insanely strong people, whew.

Fuuu, I seriously cried. I mean, the actions of them, just felt so realistic. One moment, I was, well, immersed in his character, enjoying the respect he had in the other world, and then, when he came back home, while I was still immersed, got this----

Seriously. It's friggin sad, but it felt like it could really happen to any of us, really. Like, he managed to make it very, deep (?) but not using very super extreme things, you know, all the cliche melodrama things. Not gonna spoil for you if you see this review.

Anyways. Just read it, this novel. If you're craving for something new, this is it. Also, I spent 16 minutes composing this, it is now 5:14. I hope someone read this review. <<less

An absolutely awesome novel~!

The emotions and characters are interesting. Can't wait for more. I felt like I was on an emotional roller coaster. I feel like this is the best redemption and one of the best character growth novels. It's probably one of my favorite Korean novels now too, haha.

I read 78 chapters in one go (just shows how awesome it is) while listening to Sekai no Owari's LOVE SONG. I feel like the song overall matches the novel really well.

I've been reading novels for many years already, found many hidden gems and over-rated craps, saw some newbie praising or denouncing a novel with his lacking experience, data base, and IQ. But what I can say is that this thing right here! Is a start of a new legend!

This novel is a rising star. Just like how "warlock of the magus world" tops my AI novels, "reaincarnated as a slime" starts my isekai mayhem, and "overlord" dominates my op protagonist, This novel's potential makes my thirst and passion for novels... more>> aflame!!

After weeks of wading through dozens of chapters of mediocre web novels I come across this one. After reading the first few chapters I was pretty bored, but the great reviews kept me optimistic. I am now 45 chapters in and I can safely say this is one of my favorite novels I have read. If you aren't hooked on this novel after the first few chapters, I urge you to keep reading because it gets a lot more interesting. It is such a pity that the translator decided to... more>> drop this, but maybe if we can get more people interested he will pick it back up, or someone else will continue where he left off. I urge you to give this novel a try and I hope you enjoy it as much as I do! <<less

It's one of the nice korean novel with other world "action, plots including time travel". It has a decent content too every chapter contents makes you satisfied. It is one of best KR novels of this genre. MC is good, plots are decent too there's character development too inshort a fun read. Some may consider MC is a bit lucky but offcourse its a fantasy novel you got to use a bit of your imagination can't let the MC die from the start lol. It's a shame that translator has... more>> put this on hiatus !!! Start translating this people !!!! Can't let such a decent story die like some others. <<less

Sadly, it has being dropped by the translator because of low popularity, but I thought I would put my 2 cents and give this novel 5 stars to keep the rating high. It's one of the best novels out there. Once you get to chapter 20 and the character development starts, it becomes so much better. I'd highly recommend you to read at least until that chapter before you stop reading the novel for the MC's initial annoying personality. You won't regret it. Hopefully another translator picks this Gem up... more>> soon. Have a good day everyone. <<less

This is a great story, gambling addict that becomes a warrior.

Good character development and plot, I feel that the pacing is good and there are lots of clever things still coming.

I hope this series continues to be translated, it has been done pretty well.

This novel has characters with real emotions instead of cardboard cutouts hosed down with the flanderized ideals of Asian masculinity. I genuinely empathize with the main character, and that almost never happens with the translated novellas on this website. I'm excited to see how the author manages to keep this up.
