There are only two chapters out for this at the time I'm writing this review, so I don't know how it will continue, however, I've been quite impressed by what I've seen so far. The writing fits the main character quite nicely, and the side characters he encounters all (mostly) have some sort of attribute that I can connect with and sympathize with. I always like when the protagonist

properly fills the 'Supernatural Mentor' slot rather than being OP for the sake of being OP. All in all, the translation quality... more>> is the best I've read in quite some time, and the story is rather enthralling. I give this web novel the highest score of a perfect 5/7. <<less

So far, it is rather well written, and rather well translated. So pretty darn good. I have no idea what the general plot is since 2 chapters simply aren't enough in this case, since it isn't a generic story, however the story itself is explained, and you have a general idea of how the world works with just those 2 chapters, and can notice many minour details too.

Basically, I really hope someone picks this up again since it is quite a good read.

Wow, what a story. I found this novel after reading one of the Author's previous work "Reborn as a Vending Machine" which I found to be really well written and have a decent story. But in this novel, Author's writing skills has visibly improved even further and I continued reading all the raw chapters.

In a world that every human and even monsters possess one or more skills from birth, our nameless main character is the only owner of a unique skill that allows him to buy and sell the Skills... more>> themselves. He goes with the name Collector and even his age and capabilities are unknown.

All chapters have an independent story, usually fallowed by an unexpected plot twist, small world building, subtle back story for the mysterious MC and new character introduction. <<less
