This story has no obvious flaws and is an entertaining read as of chapter 10. If you like adventure styled post-apocalyptic litrpg styled fictions then you will like this.

The grammar has no issues and the characters are reasonably fleshed out, with personalities and differences. It is hard to say what direction this fiction is going down as of yet as there hasn't much time passed chronologically in the story and although the general feel has been established the setting could still change a bit, who knows.

The story certainly takes inspiration from a bunch of popular and well written litrpgs and it has taken on it's own style too.

Spoiler: Spoiler

 

I’ve read the first ten chapters.  The grammar and spelling are good.  The setting interesting.  It seems to take its lead from novels like Randidly Ghosthound.  But I like what the author is doing with it so far. 

The stories weakness is the main character and his friend.

The main character, Lucas, is a bit of an idiot.  For example, after being warned the forest is dangerous, and having had a few weeks of near death experiences, he reveals his presence to an unknown creature while his friend and ally is sleeping and mana burned.  Does he have a death wish?

Also be warned.  The MC, Lucas, and his friend, Colt, do not act like typical early 20-something males. If I were being kind I would describe them as being very emo.  In reality they act like two teenage girls.  I’m not sure if this is intentional on part of the author or not.  

Regardless, I think this story is worth following as of now.

Very enjoyable.Good grammar.Interesting system that i haven't seen before.THe Mc uses an anchor as a weapon and has ship like abilities so its definitely something new.The characters are more emotional than the standart silent,stoic and super competent protagonist.Some bromance going on.
Looking forward to a lot more chapters!Read the story,it takes just a few chapters to get you hoocked!

It's odd, but the main characters are acting more like computer game characters controlled by players than humans in odd circumstances. No attempts to see what's going on with the rest of humanity. No attempts to really grind skills. And both main characters have had more than one near death experience, and have gotten kind of "eh, whatever " with their own injuries, but pull out all the stops when the other is injured.

Kind of fun (screw sword or mace mastery, we've got anchor mastery)

'OK' Story with some idiosycracies

As of this review I have read the first 12 chapters.  

Story:  Is a solid LitRPG.  It takes from many other stories the mechanics that work, to a degree.  I may have missed but the actual stats seem off for actual count vs level and level additions.  It is a fairly standard pace for RR stories but will need some changes if planning to publish.

EG: MC has mental break down kills slime everything is fine.

Style: Reminisent of the early teen girl manga.  Focusing on a simple budding relationship with a little action thrown in.  

Grammar: Clean writing with very little typoes or wrong tense words.  The 'adult' language feels forced or what a typical 14 year old thinks is appropriate.

Characters:  The only real lacking issue in the story.  As of chapter 12 we have 4 characters.  The MC and the love interest.  The knowledgable guide; and the expositional filler.  Other reviewers have stated the issue with the homosexual issues.  That is not the problem.  It is the fact that for a early 20's guy there is too much 14 year old girl.  

 

It is a decent story and the fact that it is longer that 10 chapters and seems to be ongoing it is worth a read.

Be warned if you do not like it, but this story features a gay relationship. While I personally don't mind and encourage the author to write the story they want to write, I know some people are sensitive to that kind of stuff. I will continue to enjoy the story, but just be informed.

Someone is gonna have a coming out soon …

But seriously. Not to sound homophobic or whatever, but either the characters or the author are going to have a coming out in the upcoming weeks …

Style wise it does the job, its relatively readable and is somewhat fluent however its a bit to densely packed for my taste. A litrpg story works the best when you convey the most information with the fewest simple words, when you try to go for a detailed style it reads … weird?

Story wise, it really isn't anything special. I mean, almost all litrpg stories are identical. It isn't really special or notable, but you don't read a litrpg for it's story.

Grammar is fine. Didnt see any glaring issues, found an ocassional slip up but its rare.

Charaters are fine, decent detail I guess. Blushing too often. Through the selection of characters is rather limited right now.

If you like LitRPG here you go

[It is a good story,

The characters sometimes seem a bit unnatural (it may be because some arent human) but the bromance is just hilarious. 

The skills, stats and perks are really good, and im curious what will come in the future

I hope there will be more chapters and the bigger plot will show up.]

Edit on Chap 19:

The situation cleared, the plot thickens and the story evolves into a really good one. 

Still my earlyer statement stands: If you like litRPG, you gonna like this.

The story is slow. it is readable with good language. the story is not moving forward as much as we hope in the first few chapters. the novel is just like any other litrpg novel, but you read it for the story.

Can't wait for updates

Currently still under twenty chapters, but so far been well worth the read. Characters are built well and have actual character and personality without being insert trope cutouts. We learn about the world from the characters' perspective so no exposition plot dumps, however litrpg so expect many breaks for level up and new skill messages. Great potential and a strong foundation has been set. Personally I can't wait to see how it grows.
