First of all, I love this novel. The main character is interesting, the world is good and I don't see the MC acting out from character. With many stories usually one of my biggest problems is that they mostly get stuck on some boring "plot" which barely qualifies as a proper story. Thankfuly this never happened here. The only downside is probably the horrendous update schedule. Its way to slow! I can wait for 2-3 weeks but it didn't get a single update in 2 months. Which is weird because previously this didn't seem like a problem. He probably has something to work on so we should give time. I just really hope it continues.


All that needs to change right now is the chapter count. One chapter a month is not enough


This story is refreshing, entertaining, and enthralling. The characters are well fleshed out, the story is consistent and most plot holes are swiftly amended, the author has impeccable grammar, and the story has yet to disappoint me in any way. As of now the story has been placed on hiatus but I do hope that the author will continue it and eventually give it a proper ending. I would hate to see this one become like so many other amazing stories on here, abandoned without a proper ending.


one of the more unique novels on rrl and its done really well with lots of future potential, the grammar is also really a good point :) im looking forward to the releases :P


I love shapeshifter stories!!

If Boxxy were created in not a fantasy game world, but futuristic world.... it’s like reading Everyone Loves Large Chests (except the puns)

I love this novel, and I hope it will get higher in the rankings! Go Tofu!


Found account just to recommend

Found my old account I didn't log in to ages just to say I like this.

The style is pretty cool. I'm used to lots of novels on this site having only one theme for any powers they obtain, but this novel gives itself more opportunities by involving robotics, mutations and super powers. I really enjoy the diversity and competition they could all have.

For grammar, I only spotted one tiny error out of the 19 chapters currently released. It's great.

The story itself is basic as can be at the beginning, but that's because the main character is obviously a robot just fighting things. After that (no spoilers, don't worry), it becomes much more enjoyable and has many branching storylines that actually get involved in the main character's life, whether good or bad, it feels natural and enjoyable. Nothing feels truly robotic, just like the super minion.

The protagonist starts off very mechanical and basic in thought processes and functions, but it doesn't last very long. He builds himself with each encounter he has with a person, monster, super hero, facility and even with a piece of food. It's very wholesome and satisfying.
Him alone would be better than average for this website, but the story has many memorable characters that actually feel like people and all have their own quirks that make you actually visualize and notice them each time you read their name. I have nothing to complain about any of the characters, it's very well blended and none of them feel artificial.

Overall, I love the story and I look forward to the future of its world and the protagonist. I hope this becomes more than trending and reach the best rated of this site.

I'll check each monday for this story and appreciate whatever it pops out, since I know the author will always think of something good.

Thank you Gogglesbear.


I think i love this book... a little to much even.

What I wouldn't do for these chapters to come out faster?

The answer is nothing.


I'm sorry I didn't read this earlier

I've been ignoring this for a little while now. Not any reason in particular for this just skipped it. Now I wish I had started this when I first saw it pop up but also didn't start until it was over because I know I'm going to binge through this whole story and be left sad and waiting impatiently for the next chapter

Extra Chromosome

I have so many regrets, including not reading this sooner.


Believable weird character

Reviewed at: Ch39 Beefy Boy

This is one of the better fictions on the site. The MC is weird. It takes a chapter or two before you actually get to know him, and he's changing/improving over time. 

The central premise is: how do you learn to pretend to be human, in a weird superheroes main world, when you're not even close to begin with.

I don't think I've seen this premise handled this well before.

My big complaint is that it doesn't update often enough for me to read more frequently.
