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

Superminion is such a unique and fun story. Genuinely hilarious, but also not cracky. It pulls you in, makes you care about the characters, and makes you smile.


Used to interest me, but not anymore.

Reviewed at: Ch43 I Can't Believe It's Not Tofu

Well written story that used to be one of my RR favorites, but it's moving along with a snails pace. Both the plot and the chapter count has barely moved along since i started reading it.

We literally haven't experienced any suspense in maybe 15 or 20 chapters, the story honestly reads like a Slice of Life at this point. Here's a few thing's that i had personally hoped to get some clarification on since i began reading, all of which hasn't happened yet:What's the actual goal of Tofu? When will that cooperation that created him find him? When will somebody find out his secret; that he's not human? Will he get the powers from the mutavus or whatever virus? Because that's kind of been a sore point since we learned about the possibility. Yet nothing has happened.

I'm sorry to do this, but i'm lowering my initial rating from 5 to 3½ star now. I honestly don't think this story has any place on the first page of popular ongoing stories anymore.

It's a bad unfortunate i feel this way, since i liked the premise of the story. But it's just too slow, and slice of life-y now.

Pretty good. Not the greatest, but quite fun to read. It has an actual plot and conflict so it's immediately better than 90% of the stuff on this website. No complaints from me, but it didn't really make me go "oh wow that's good". In my opinion a 4 star means "better than normal, everything put together really well, but nothing extra special or above and beyond like Threadbare's unique charm" and that describes the book really well.  It doesn't have a special charm, but it does it's bit, and it does it well. I definitely recommend a read!


Edit: Changed to 5 stars, It's sorta grown on me.


A great blend of McCrae's Worm and the cyperpunk world of Shadowrun. The author takes an intresting concept for the main character and manages to turn it into an amazing story.

A great job of worldbuilding and character building. I cann't wait to see where it goes.


Better then the cover would usually entail

Very well written, one of the few superhero-esque stories i can read.


Great story, sadly the release rate is worrying.

Reviewed at: Ch43 I Can't Believe It's Not Tofu
story concept is great, characters are engaging and stuff happens without MC participating all the time as if he(its?) is the center of the world,its not just frozen everywhere else escept the area MC is in. so thats a big plus, not to mention we often get other character POV to show us the difference of us seing his thought process and people's perspectives inside the story how creepy he actually is, which IMHO is a must in monster mc stories. The story is for w.e. reason hanging and hardly progressing to the point of where we're reading more of his everyday life nuisances(which is good, but shouldn't be focused that much), which kind of has a good excuse as he's pretty much months old with no world experience, hence we get his viewpoint to experience of everything, but that could go forever...
Sadly, this is already going to join my RR graveyard list with how little news from author and huge gaps of time between chapters. from author notes you can see he's conflicted about the story, which you can feel with how he's avoiding to further the story, no offense to author, i fully understand the pain of loosing the writing inspiration and not connecting the story without big mistakes and errors.Apologies, but thats -1 star for me. there's too much dead stories here already and as a fan of this book i hardly want others to feel the frustration with the lack of updates we're getting. 

A great story brought down by it's schedule

Reviewed at: Ch41 Smells Fishy

This is one of my favorite stories on the site. It has wonderful characters, an interesting world that seems to follow the iceberg rule, and has interesting ideas and powers throughout.

The only problem is the upload schedule. I know that the story is free and therefore people think it's frouned upon to judge the author for the upload schedule, but at the time this review is written it has been  a month and a half since the last chapter, a chapter that raised a lot of questions.

Other than that, the story is great, the author has a good sense of style and they manage to have dialogue flow nicely in a way thats comedic when it wants to be. 

Overall it's great until you reach the most recent chapter. If the author ever gets a consistent scheduel (even if the chapters are spaced out more than normal) then i'd give it 4 stars

The story shifts in style going from the perspective of a foreign creature in a world which it doesn't know much about. Somewhat like the saying a big fish in small pond or living inside of a well. The characters are well sought out and unique; However, there are missing words here and there with typos and grammar errors it's not unreadable but you are bound to stop and try to make out what a sentence means when its missing a word. The progression of the story thus far is nice there isn't the mc is op no one is his match setting he is just "above average" thus far. The style of writing is nice it smoothly shifts from first perspective to 3rd person perspective without losing the reader all in all a solid 3.5/5 its a fun read but it needs improvements in some areas. 


I don't want to spoil anything or go too in-depth I'll keep this vague and brief. I liked the characters, the world building, and the author's take on the superhero genre. If you don't like the protagonist of the story at the start they grow and develop as the story progresses so you probably want to continue also the tone shifts a bit I feel once the protagonist actually starts interacting with people. At first, I didn't like the story or the MC but both grew on me greatly.
