Story was a lot better then I thought based on the descriptions and artwork for the story. Biggest problem right now is lack of chapters and maybe how to prevent the main character from getting too strong too fast.
Sometimes you just stumble upon something unique, something you realize upon reading that you have to recommend to everyone just to share the joy of it. This is what Super Minion is.
The mixture of supervillains, heroes and a very interesting setting that allows for amazing flexibility in events, seen through the eyes of mostly our special protagonist, for whom the world might not be quite the same as ours.
The concept being utilized is similar to the flurry of time travel stories, with stone age people meeting the future, but this is just so much more magnificent. It becomes a humoristic, satirical, existing and a gently prod at many aspects of our society.
Read it and enjoy - it deserves it (Heck I even find myself competing with friends to be the first to notify the others about new chapter updates).
Also, the author has started a patron page after losing work due to COVID-19 and I will be throwing support behind it, the first patron for me to support, but well deserved, as I would have bought the book if I could.
Let's face it, monsters nightmares and horrors, death destruction and mayhem, these are not the things you associate with cute cuddly things. But GogglesBear has somehow made the nightmares and horrors cute and friendly, in a deadly sort of way. Our main protag Tofu is a vegan designed soy based murder weapon (ok not really) strait from a horror film that melts hearts with his innocent foolishness. Definatly the definition of "creepy cute" the characters have an almost slice of life take on living amidst the chaos that is a capes n cowls super universe. Join GogglesBear's awkward teen(like) murder weapon as he navigates through the chaotic metropolis of fortress city, fighting capes, gaining sustinance, and navigating teen social structure.
So let me start with the style. I'll admit I was expecting a much darker setting given the plot and material the author was working with. But somehow, this ended up being a relatively lighthearted story despite that massive amounts of gore and horrors that are most of the characters (get to that more in character design). The author has found his niche and unique style and I hope to see it further explored in the future.
Grammar: nothing really to note hear, no big glaring grammatical mistakes, no real basic ones, but also nothing to set of those with a literary fetishism either.
story, besides the overarching plot of survival, and basic human interaction with a being coming to terms with it's marginal humanity it doesn't have anything of real note here either, much like gramma. But this isn't really a mark against the author but more of the slice of life genre in general. While theres always something to do in Tofu's life and somewhere he has to be, plus random quests from social interaction, theres also nothing of note, no greater goal. But, in a way, that's also not a strike against the author either as Tofu has lived his (short) life for one reason up to this point, survival. So finding out that there is something more is just one of Tofu's greater quests. Something that he is forced to face with greater frequancy as he is thrust into "normal" life and day to day.
Characters, now this is where this story, and the greater capes n cowl genre set things apart. I love good character development and character design, and this story has BOTH! Not only is Tofu not living in a Barbie TM franchise universe but the mutavirus and general universe meta means that every character is unique by simple universe physics, it's awsome. In addistion to character design but the characters themselves all have unique stories and development from the oblivously adorable MC to the background characters that you just don't get. Forget about in other stories even an MMO doesn't go into this depth for background NPCs that are going to be thrown away at the end of the quest. But it is done with in an ergonomic way that doesn't clog the story with lore and WORD BLOCK.
All in all it's a cute story and I look forward to more Tofu adventures. I highly recomend, for those that aren't squeamish anyway.
I read this from this site for a year now and I felt I was doing a disservice to the author by not leaving a review. So here it is! I don't need to say much I just love this story. Thanks to ky reading buddy Bo, who helped me made an account.
I like the world that the Author has created. It is interesting and has a fun take on super heroes.
The main charcter is hilarious and distinctly non-human.
His supporting cast are all unique characters with their own perosonel motivations and idosynchosies.
I absolutely love this fiction. There's something about characters like yours that draws me in and gets me hooked. There are not that many good modern world fiction, especially villain/hero stories. The whole concept in and of itself is unique and fun, having a world of huge variety to show for it. The chapters are long and engaging.
The writing style is super easy to follow and gives all the right descriptions. It is a pleasure to read.
Grammar is really good and fluent. A mistake here and there is normal, there really aren't that many.
The story itself is very interesting, I just find it slightly disappointing the firm he was created in doesn't have any screen time. I am constantly curious about what they're up to but the topic isn't all that clear until this point. I do think the author is getting to it though.
I just love Tofu. He is interesting and fun to follow. I especially loved the last few chapters where some of his dirty little secrets come out, haha. Keep it up.
All in all, 5-stars without question. Keep doing what you're doing. It would be awesome if the chapters came out more often but, as a writer myself, I understand it can be difficult at times. Best of luck!
Absolute gold. The main character is hilarious, not too overpowered nor too weak, and the reactions of the people around the main character is reasonable and makes sense. 10/10 reccomended
I enjoyed every moment of tofu oddness and is addicted to the misadventures of his life
The prose is great, I love the word choices and the descriptions. The characters aren't completely fleshed out yet, but that's partly because the mc doesn't really understand people. In this case it's really well done and leaves room to grow.
The worldbuilding is interesting, there are a few details that have been dropped in that raise all sorts of questions.
I really like it so far. :)
Nice work, author!
