I have read half of the currently translated chapters, but I don't feel any hook to keep me reading. To be honest, it feels more like a weapon and military vehicle fanboy is writing a wish fulfilment novel. The logic is about average for a Korean novel. For those unfamiliar with Korean light novels, this basically means that there are numerous things that have plot holes, feel railroaded, or seem illogical.

The MC unexpectedly gets the ability to buy equient with points earned from killing monsters. It's only weakness currently seems to be the inability to buy food with points. This ability is never really questioned nor does anyone really ask why only the MC has this power. Everyone just rolls with it even when the MC pulls out vehicles or weapons out of thin air.

Random people seek shelter and agree to take orders from the MC rather than whatever may be left of the government. They don't even know anything about the MC before making the choice, and not much time had passed since things started. It looks like they joined just because the MC cleared the area within hours after the fog causing the apocalypse appeared, and the author wanted it to happen.

The author also has the MC continue to rack up first kill bonus points just so he can buy more equipment. All of this is supposed to support a rapid expansion that the author wants to see happen. This is further enforced through the first mission the MC takes while trying to unlock a new purchasing category. All the MC has to do is get medicine (the next thing he really needed anyway).

All put together, it just feels like a freshman high schooler sat down to write what they feel would happen during the apocalypse if they were some bada** mercenary and got their choice of super power. <<less

**updated below (ignore 1star trolls) **

I'm not a fan of the military genre so this novels hasn't hooked me yet.

The protagonist so far feels robotic, is it because of the authors inability or is he like that because he is a veteran mercenary is anyone's guess. There is little to no backstory like a bad p*rno video, we just jump right into the action.

If by chance, the story actually follows through the plot of the MC being the only one able to get weapons, the plot will get ridiculous... more>> very fast. I'll keep an eye out till 25 chapters, let's hope this turns around soon.

For now it's just mediocre.

Action scenes are well described and plot is fast paced.

I know this review is a bit blunt, maybe unfair even considering only 5 chapters are out, but I'll update the review and rating if necessary after 25 chapters.

*Update after chapter 23*

Ok, this novel is not for me.

The story so far is
Spoiler

the MC along with his group of subordinates building a base. They go to a place where they can find stuff, encounter monsters, kill them, find people, recruit them. That's it. The cycle repeats.

[collapse]

We are 23 chapters in and I've yet to see any for of depth to any character. We see some shenanigans a few subordinates do but that's as far as it goes. No backstory, no history, nothing makes them interesting.

To be frank with you all, I couldn't read past chapter 10. This was just an apocalypse story, there is nothing here other than killing monsters and building a base. Maybe there is a portion of readers who are into that, I'm not.

Like I mentioned before, it has its good parts. But even after 1 full volume, we know nothing about what's happening outside the city (understandable, since it's volume 1 and you always start small. Not holding this against the novel), we no next to nothing about the MC, his subordinates. All people recruited or assimilated into the militia are submissive for now (no other choice tbh) , but that makes them even more boring.

I am struggling to find the "wow" factor in this. The world building is not there, because it's set on Earth. The story is of a character running around accumulating resources, can literally change him with any other person and it won't make a difference. Where is the hook? Is it just a military nuts fantasy? Only depth I saw is the knowledge of weapons the author has shown.

So my final take away is "for military Bois, maybe for kingdom building fans too, but that takes a back seat to guns and heavy machinery"

It's still 3/5 for me.

I am not a fan of plain military fantasy. There isn't much else to look for in this. Goes into my dropped list now.

I read after chapter 10 to 23 because an acquaintance gave me the chapters and asked me to update my thoughts after reading that far. But I see no improvement in terms of the story after chapter 5. Kinda feel bad, but it is what it is. <<less

When I first started hearing about the novel, I didn't think much of it. I thought it'd be a boring and plain novel.

However, when I read the first chapter, it definitely piqued my interest because it wasn't an isekai, nor was it a typical zombie apocalyptic novel either. I feel like it's more of a world-building light novel, which I feel is satisfying seeing something progress over time.

If you're into OP MCs and a world-building aspect in your novels, definitely a novel for you. The writing is not bland and... more>> the translations are really good!

As a person who has never used patreon in my life, I feel like this novel deserved my attention.

Thank you,
