Leave a review

drakan_glasses BE NICE! Fair critique is fair, but be respectful & follow the review rules. There will be no mercy.
Sort by:

As the title of my review states, if you had to break down the story to its core 'Wish fulfillment OP MC' would be that core. 21 Chapters in and I'm finally giving up because I can't handle it anymore.

Style: I'm not an expert, so I can't really say anything other than 'it's okay'. There doesn't really seem to be anything wrong with the style, but it's not special in any sort of way either. It's okay.

Grammar: Like with every story (and likely this very review I'm writing) there are small mistakes. Unlike most stories here on RRL however, this story is actually readable from a grammar perspective. I've noticed a lot of budding writers on this site are actually using storywriting as a way to practice their English. That's probably a great way to learn English, but it's horrible for anybody trying to read the drivel that comes out of it. This author at the very least grasps English enough that he might as well be/ maybe is a native English speaker. Thank you for not burning my grammar-nazi eyes too much.

Story: By chapter 21 there isn't one. I've seen another review describe it as 'stuff happens' and totally agree with that. Stuff just happens and the author writes about it. Not in a way that makes said stuff seem like a logical course of action either. Avery falls in love with Ira? Sure, why not. Ira just straight up accepts to marry Avery? Sure, why not. Everybody likes Ira, besides the obviously 1-dimensional 'baddy/arrogant characters'? That's totally to be expected since he's a totally interesting and great guy. Totally not an obviously mentally ill psychopath.

Characters: Hahahahahaha. Hahahahahaha. Hahahahaha. No. There are no characters worth the category 'character' in this 'story'. Ira, the supposedly main character, is a blank slate. He just goes with the flow, smirks and is a psychopath. That's literally everything you know about him and those 3 things are the entirety of his persona. Avery? Supposedly a badass captain or something who never smiles, but of course melts for our OP MC. Wish fulfillment much? Besides liking the MC and being a good fit for him (not minding him being a psycho and being a bit of one herself) you don't get to know her that much. Then they get married and I'm supposed to give a shit... probably... Mary (or whatever village fangirl's name is) amounts to 'strong village girl who likes Ira', while the village guy (cared so little about him I even forgot his name) who had some nice potential for character growth just stays the same and amounts to 'cowardly village boy there to make MC look better'. Nice 3-dimensional side characters? check! (sarcasm)

In conclusion it just seems like the usual thing that happens with OP MC stories. They turn into wish fulfillment stories where the MC is a self insert for the author's power fantasies and of course he gets all the girls because the author wants to get all the girls too. No real character gets added to the main 'character' because he's just a self insert. The author doesn't need to justify anything because he knows how the character will act because it's how he'd act if he was the OP MC. That leaves you with a 1-dimensional character who can only be enjoyable if you get down to the author's level and self-insert yourself into him.


Alright, so i had reviewed this story before completing it fully with 4 stars but now I'll have to change it a bit, I guess.

So it's an entertaining story for those who like op mc and just reading the first few chapters you know the mc's gonna be op. So if u like wishfullfillment reads then give it a try.

The story was great and interesing. Atleast for the first 100 chapters or so. After that? Idk, around 150 I was forcing myself a bit but it was still enjoyable. But then came the dumb mc arc at chap.170 and all my interest waned as I watched our mc make many dumb decisions. I really don't know what I feel about this now as I skimmed through dozens of chapters because I just wanted to get it over with, the last arc is interesting but felt rushed.

Grammar was fine, there were mistakes in the end but apart from that, the author fixed any mistakes pointed out to him.

Characters? Nice in the beginning, bland in later parts. The mc was alright, decently fleshed out I guess. Though there was a side character the author failed to handle properly n i.e Clark. I seriously hated how the author's only job for Clark was to mess up and be scorned by others. He had such a great potential as a character but the author failed to realise it and horribly too. Apart from that there were some bogus side characters like Amy and Aldis that I didn't like at all.

Overall it's a good read but falls in quality towards the ending.



I will preface this by admitting I didn't even make it past chapter 33.


The story power creep is beyond the definition of extreme. I applaud the author for not having worthless morality get in the way but I cannot take the story seriously when power is so disproportionate.

Grammar is acceptable, characters personalities are ok. I will update this review if I ever decide to try this again and find it less lacking.



I ususally dont write reviews but because i fear that this story is going to be ruined for me i´ll do it.

Now the reason that i think that is simple, i enjoy the story a lot as you can see on the scores i gave. But the reason for the low character score is that i feel like the main character is a mess.

Spoiler: Spoiler


you cant explain the randomness of the character. with him being a battle freak or crazy.

He doesnt try to improve himself even though he meets more powerful being constantly.

why bother setting his character in the prologue if you shit on it the moment he is reborn.


sorry for this rent but i had to say it and i wouldnt bother writing it if i didnt like the premise of the story.


MC is constatnly doing stupid things, like not looting the bandit fortress, sharing his information with virtual strangers, marrying into a clan he knows litertally nothing about to a woman he only recently met and getting virtually nothing out of it.

Overall           It could Have been better but He got too powerful too fast.         Like the story line and world though.


Usually when a story is written, the MC is someone who has a purpose. Maybe they want world peace. Maybe they want to cement safety for their family. Maybe they're just trying to survive in a harsh, cruel world. 

Ira has none of those. His motivation is an unexplained desire to seize as much power as possible, despite already being grossly overpowered. He is given new and ridiculous abilities without having to work for them or sacrifice anything, and displays absolutely no traits of an actual human being. He goes from laughing during a battle to casually murdering innocents without any thought or plan. The only good character that I've seen insofar in Clark, a village boy that has PTSD and can't use a sword. However, Clark only exists to draw an early comparison between the super-cool OP Main Character and everyone else. 

The story, if it can be called that, is all but non-existant. It reads as though someone is recounting what happened in their day, but begins every sentence with "and then". "and then Ira beat someone in a duel" "and then Ira went and ate" "and then Ira threatened to kill someone like a psychopath for literally no reason". The only reason that the story isn't the worst part about this fiction is that the characters are worse. 

The grammar is bad, but not awful. Most of what an editor would do with this story, even the revised sections, is adding in dozens of missing commas and words. It's possible to understand what the author meant without having these, but whatever flow the writing could have had is ruined. 

This story isn't worth reading. Go and ask your 6-year-old cousin what they would do if they were a Super Sayian, you'll get roughly the same result.


 overall liking the story and where it's going it's drawn me in

could definitely be more polished, and needs to be proofread better but it's tolerable depending on who you are

author has a tendency to repeat things/descriptions just written in the next sentence or two, but say them in a slightly different way

you should always go for quality over quantity, no need to add fluff or repeat stuff readers already know

people will remember a very good short story before they remember a mediocre long one (if they even finish it)

also, bold authors notes in the middle of the chaps are annoying and bring me out of the story

make an asterisk or something and put them all at the end if you feel you need them


Characters have no personality

Read up to chapter 21,

I haven't written many reviews but I felt I had to say something here. This is meant as constructive criticism but may come across as overally derogatory since i'm not an experienced reviewer. 

(TL,DR version)

The characters have zero personality in this story. Smiling all the time is not a personality. The main character is so emotionally non-invested in anything that is going on why should the reader get invested. The story suffers from this as well as without any reason for any of the characters doing anything they are doing, it might as well just be called "stuff happens". 

Longer review/rant

Ira grins/smirks/smiles/chuckles/laughs etc. etc. practically once every 5 lines. It wouldn't be so annoying except there is zero reason for it. People die, he laughs, gets his arm cut off, he laughs, having a normal conversation with someone with nothing funny going on, he chuckles. That's NOT a personallity, that is a mental disability. Even though that seems like what you were kinda of going for, it doesn't come across that way as there is NOTHING else to the character other than he grins at everything and is OP. There has to be more to a character than that, especially since he is your main character.  His "mental struggles" if they actually exist, are never talked about, you never see the "facade" crack or him having a breakdown and struggling to deal with the trauma.  We know nothing of his motivations/hopes/dreams/wants/fears. Because we know basically nothing about his personallity, there is no way to identify with the character at all, you can't place yourself in his situation because you have no idea why he is doing anything he is doing. He is just OP and smirks a lot, end of story. The other characters aren't much better. Amy is just a strong girl that is the love interest of clark and thats.... thats it, thats all you really know about her except apparently she appreciates the male form (from the glances at Ira). Clark is... I mean the whole mental trauma thing was interesting, I was wondering how it might develop the character and make him grow stronger but nope. The next time it happens another person dies, and then it happens a third time and someone looses an arm. Pushing past how ridiculous it is to have the same situation three times, he didn't improve at all or was shown to try to improve himself beyond his fighting abilities, he just responds the same way every time. Is.... is this supposed to be some gag comedy except someone gets mutilated every time? If so its not funny, it just makes him seem like a pathetic sack of **** that gets thrown into the same situation over and over again by lazy writing. Avery... again we know nothing of her motivations. She wants to train to get stronger... okay, so does everyone else in practically every story on this site. When she calls in her mom it just comes right out of nowhere. **spoilers** Some ancient pact broken because, seemingly completely out of nowhere, she decides to act like a smug above it all noble (which by the way wasn't hinted as being her personality at all) to some of her superior officers. She was set up, fine I get it, but she should have worked to clear her name not just, **** this I'm better than you.  It honestly feels like none of this was planned, and as the chapter was written this stuff was just thrown in. Getting to my overall point of the story being just "stuff happens" if you don't have any character motivations behind anything. Now, character motivations can't just be told to the reader (see Swamp Boy if you want an example of how annoying that can get) and need to be worked into the story, but it seems that the author can at least partially appreciate this, as the most well developed character in the entire story was **spoilers** Glen, the villain we basically got one chapter devoted to. He had a strong motivation, he had an interesting back story, he was built up as a big bad... and then completely ruined when he got basically one scene. Nevertheless, he was still the most interesting character so far because he actually had some motivation for doing something. The other elements of the story are your basic OP protagonist in a fantasy world with adventurer gui.... *cough* I mean mercenary unions and non human humanoid species, nothing unique there. 

Keeping the story the same, but adding some actual emotion and motivations /personality to the characters (and deleting 90% of the grins/chuckles/laughs/smirks) would go a long way towards making this a viable story. Please don't stop writing, as there was enough of a story to actually stay until chapter 20, and I do plan to finish it, it is just painful to read through many parts. 



Too edgy and cringy for my tastes but good history

Well it was a promessing history but after the 27 chapter i stopped, i cant read it anymore, its totally edgy, made for cringy teenagers, the history have a good outcast characters development(the npcs,random people etc), but the side and main characters have soo much psychology plot holes in their personality, the history and world constructs seem really legit and good, one of the side characters are being build up suffering all the time and getting "rejected" of the world around him, the author probably is doing this to transform him in some powerfull villain in the end of the history of something like that, i dont care about seeing people suffer and the dark themes of the history, i enjoy it, but everytime i read the comment section a edgy teenager is typingg thinks like "hohoho i love to see him suffer, i want for him to support every tragedy and slow become broken, i want to see him screaming and begging mercy hur dur" "good job with the history of this guy, i love when they suffer like that before dying hur dur"... even the author is a little edgy with his plots, and in the answers he even seem to support those fat virgins keyboard warrios, but i hope that its just because he doesnt want to loose readers saying that they are retarded and suffer serious mental problems... in the end its not for me, too my cringy. But if you like cringy and edgy things you can try a read, the world is really good and the fight scenes are well made ;)
