Excellent writing of a nonhuman trying to hide in a 'drone' society

All that needs to change right now is the chapter count.

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

The answer is nothing.

This is my favorite story on this site, please dont drop it, please... i am perfectly fine with slow releases as long as you finish it.

Anyway, i love it, not much more to say that people havent already said. I didnt really like the fact that Imp now knows his backstory, but its fine as long as he understands that Tofu is definently at least 18 ( cycles ). I want more, khm, character development between Tofu and Nicole the 20 ton scorpion, khm khm. Ah, and i want mr. Chonkers to bless us with his omnipresent wisdom again. Maybe make Nicole see him wave or something, it would resolve that tragedy.

Good job Author. ;)

The epitome of a character driven masterpiece. So many well made characters, I actually care about what happens to most of the side characters!  Best portrayal of such an inhuman protagonist I've ever read.

So i can go into the future and read everything you write for this story.

I enjoy this story alot, i have read it start to current chapter about 5 times now. You have a good style, you make the characters feel alive and you make me wanna know about the world.

You could make a bunch of info dumping chapters about the world and i would just eat that stuff up. I don't really have any down sides i can point out for the story. Well besides the lack of chapters, but that is fine. I have been following One Piece and Berserk for 15+ years, you can just get added to them. Please keep writing even if it's 1 chapter a month.

Thanks very much, hope you have a good day/week/month.

An amazing book which takes you on a journey of what it is like to be an escaped test subject. Sadly the only downside is the slow rate of chapter releases which gets annoying.

I avoided this particular story for the past few months, as it simply did not seem like something I would enjoy. Upon seeing that it had reached number two in popularity last week, I decided to try a chapter or two.

Now I'm at the end of what's currently published, and I wish there was more already written. I'll be following this one and looking forward to future chapters.

The non-human perspective is well done. Things happen that make sense from the character's perspective that demonstrates the author has seriously thought about the disconnect between what the main character is and what a normal person takes for granted.

The other characters are well thought out with more nuanced relationships than you would expect in something like this. While you can somewhat follow the plot and it has a certain level of predictability with some character interractions, other items are vague enough that you're able to be pleasantly kept in suspense.

Will this character trigger? Or will their point of conflict be when/if they find out another character is working for a villain? Or both?

The worldbuilding itself is also quite excellent. The establishment of the city, and the history works well, and because the main character is new to everything you learn along with the main character instead of dealing with a bunch of exposition and explaination in the first few chapters.

Not to mention the complexities of the virus, bacteria, triggering, and how society is built around them during the time in which the story occurs.

I had to repost this, as Google logged me in with the wrong account previously.

I put this off for so long because I don't love non human leads. You have to do them just right and I think a lot of people fail but this author does it perfectly.
