Usually i avoid superhero novels

But this one floored me with how much it has sunk its teeth into me. 

Wow, okay I just binged until ch. 17 and let me tell you, this is a good one. 

At first, the wording and way the writing is done can be difficult to understand. Even now I sometimes have to stop and remember what the word "Drones" actually means in the concept of the story. 

Spoiler: Spoiler

 The MC is diverse and interesting and tends to have a very interesting 'outsiders perspective' on how the cities inner workings are going down. 

I can't wait to see how the rest of this story fleshes out!

Story building from the imagination

The start of this story is what naturally catches your attention. It starts off from the perspective of a being who doesn’t know anything about the world around it, and you have to fill in the blanks with your own assumptions. Best of all it actually does confirm your suspicions as the story goes on. It being a superhero/meta humans earth really did throw me a lovely curveball. Definitly a story worth reading. You’ll be hooked just to have your questions answerd.

As of CH 17 this story is rather well done and unique. I can only think of one other story with a similar premise and it is no longer updating.

I love this, I surprisingly don't have any real nitpicks as of chapter 18, I basically orgasmed at each description as the author managed to do something great with them, he managed to get us to know what animal he was talking about with such a small amount of details that I nearly feel ashamed of my own descriptions and how much time I spend to do basically the same thing.

The mc's thought process is a well mixed balance of human and robot that really makes me understand the mc, he doesn't get an existential crisis out of killing drones nor does he get some sort of sick pleasure out of doing immoral deeds and in doing so he manages to feel more human than any character I've ever managed to write myself and far more human than most other characters on this site.

The 'contemporary/ slightly in the future with heroes' tag applies really well to this novel, or as I like to shorten this, I feel that the 'worm' tag applies really well to this novel.

Surprisngly enough though, 'Worm' tag novels are really rare overall.

I do know that wildbow isn't the one who created thsi genre but I do know that he most likely is the best one out there.

Still, it gets bonus points from me for trying something that I haven't seen tried by many others before.

There are several original concepts such as 'odd summer' which I really appreaciate, the villains so far aren't 2D bad guys but feel just as human as everyday people do.

I rate this a 4.5/5 because it's stil pretty young and I feel that it's too soon to properly rate it 5 stars.

I love the story, keep up the good work. Your main character's perspective and general knowledge is a fun and fresh pov compared to most stories and you've got some okay secondary characters, it's a really good story. Once again, I love the story, please don't go on a hiatus, like, ever

Great LN - Just needs a few Mass Releases

This is my favorite monster LN. Well, it's in my top 3 at least! The only issue with it is, is that it only has a few chapters. Please setup a patreon so we can shove money down your throat to write more pages!!

Fun read with a different MC

Our protagonist is in no way human... but "he" had human.exe running and trying to make him more like one. This results in a regularly comedic life of a "villain" or minion in a super powered world of mutants. To top it off, it is "odd summer," a time when more people mutate or gain powers and oddness abounds. All of this is pushing the protagonist along in different ways where his basic desire is for an endless supply of sugar and amino acids.

But who else is in this world? Lots of normal people all the way from kids to geezers. Some corportate types of questionable morals which led to our protagonist's "birth." Villains, some of which would cringe at how readily the protagonist kills things. Mutants! The outcasts of society but their numbers grow and they can be pretty decent folk. The cops are a generally decent bunch but underpowered and overworked in this odd land. And finally, the heroes... which range from bloodthirsty mercenaries on the side of "justice" all the way up to superpowered bastions of goodness and might.

What could go wrong when the protagonist falls into a life of crime in a world like that? Read on and see!

My favorite, your favorite too if you read it!

This novel is amazing, probably one of the best here in RR.

The story is quite unique even for a “super hero” kinda world, seeing the side of the villains is quite refreshing, even more so by the fact that “villains” are more than just some evil doers whose sole purpose is to be defeated by some hero, here we actually see them in a different way, the way the world interacts with them and that there’s even laws protecting them makes it look almost like a career path.

I love that the mc is a swiftly designed killing machine whose whole drive is to get more tofu burgers, I love his progression through the story and how he analyzes us silly humans and our weird fondness for rectangles.

I fully heartedly recommend this novel, after suffering great loss and grief in my life this novel shenanigans have brought a big smile back on my face.

(keep it going author!!!)
