Good idea, good writing style, bad direction.

Everything looks good for the first couple of chapters, but as we get to chapter 10 and 20, the charm of the series that earned the author his views start to get dropped and the story turns into "Everyone Else is a Returnee". In short, it pulls a "Bleach" or "Dimensional Sovereign".  We signed up for one storyline, but the author abandons it in favor of a standard shounen action story.  

Obviously this can still turn out to be an interesting series as was the case with "Bleach", and given the authors skill with writing, I believe he will retain a large following of readers.  However, I believe that any depth and originality the series had is disappearing fast.  

I also don't like the pacing of the novel.  It hasn't even been 25 chapters and the protagonist is challenging class 5 enemies.  For context sake, class 7 is the highest on Earth.  If you compare it to something like I Shall Seal The Heavens, the protagonist there was at the first rank for like 100 chapters.  I admit that was a bit slow, but it helped ground the series a lot better.

One of the better novels on this website!

I have been reading novels on royalroad for years now and have had the pleasure of reading some of the better novels that have sadly never been completed. I hope this novel doesn't meet the same end. The way the story is written makes it flow smoothly and the characters actually feel alive, with distinct personalities (unlike some of the other current popular novels on this site...I wont mention any names). Currently, I only have positive things to say.I read all the current chapters (chap 26) in one sitting and was left wanting more. That being said the author seems to be writing multiple novels at the same time, which is a concern in terms of completion, however we will have to wait and see if this gets dropped or not.  I have high hopes :)

Really solid story. I havent noticed a single flaw myself but there could still be some. As for the direction the story is going, I like it. There's no good or bad direction take a story its all opinion so don't sweat it.

Enjoyable all around good read

This is quite good. I enjoy the pacing of things. Enough detail to make the setting and characters interesting, and enough lack of detail that I don't feel nitpicky over arbitrary class definitions and the like. The book is cool, and the abilities are interesting.

I look forward to more skills and interesting things resulting from the MC's original gift. Easy 5 stars.
