I like grandma's schizophrenia

At chapter 9


I give four here because your story is easy to read, and your dialogues are good.

The reason I can't give five is because of certain specific scenes, like the fight scenes. For me it felt stereotypic. But I still enjoyed them. 

Story ; plot, power levels and world development 

Lemme be clear with one thing, I'm not one of those reviewers that give 5/5 for the leave-home-join-a-sect-and-become-the-strongest-there plot. I'm tired of it from both CD and issth. And your plot started like that, but fortunately it took an interesting turn.

The power levels are so far well set. 

The world is not. Because up to this point (Ch 8), I can't picture the world clearly in my head. 


You did well here, except sometimes you forget to tell us about the important physical features of some of the important characters (especially in the earlier chapters).

Also about grandma; even though I like psychiatry classes a lot in medical school, but I still can't diagnose the exact type of schizophrenia she has. For she has Delusions, Illusions and even Hallucinations. Maybe you can shed more light. 


This is good and readable, only that you missed some words sometimes. And I don't if it's just me, but I seem to realize you using a lot of 'On' instead of 'In'. 

Example; "It was on a temple." Coz I remember him finding the badge inside the temple, not on it. (Well I don't know, not a native English speaker)

NB: I'll follow the story and I may edit the review based on how the plot turns.
