This story is the best type of popcorn flick. It is an incoherent, adventure packed ramble by a mildly insane MC who becomes an ant, loves his colony, adopts a lightning shooting ape, and end up spewing out gravity bombs with the help of his second brain.
The writing is serviceable. There are frequent grammatical and structural errors, but the breezy narration and fast pace mean you’re not lingering on the prose. The MC might be cunning, but he completely submerges himself into the mindset of a monster ant fighting for survival in some mana-fueled battle-royale. This leads to rationalizations that don’t make much sense from a human’s viewpoint, but that always manage to pull the story forward.
There are constant hints of world-building. The break into human perspectives are enough to flesh out the world while not being too much of a distraction.
It’s probably one of the most charming and fun stories I’ve run across on RR, which more than makes up for its flaws.
The author writes this story with comedy as central focus, often sacrificing logic to create funny scenes. When reading this story you shouldn't expect it to be a litrpg, as the author does not stick to a strict list of terminology and there is a lack of systemic approach to the system our mc encounters.
Read this as a comedy slice of life if you are gonna read it, you will only be unable to enjoy the story if you read it as a litrpg.
Minus one star for nonsensical events that disregard prior events.
I could easily imagine this as a cartoon book, a hilarious one at that, but sadly that will never be possible unless you get rid of any nonsensical events. As they do not belong in professional production.
Minus another star for lack of effort in litrpg element.
Instead of writing the story around the parameters of mc's skills, you write the parameters of mc's skills around the story. Leading to nonsensical level up speed.
I sorta do enjoy reading Chrysalis, but there are just many issues that make me sort of dislike it as a story.
The main character is the biggest of those problems, he is simply said, stupid and insane, and i dont mean that in a good way. He goes in utterly irrational decisions, all for his hive, he like has no sense of self after joining the colony.
Theres is the 'Gandalf' thing that has beaten to death already, through it is appearing less and less at this point, so it does not annoy me anymore.
I will be fair that not all is bad, theres the human side of the story with the Deep Legion part, and thats actually well written, and thats also the part where the story does truly shine, for the author has made a well thought out world with some interesting idea's used.
The best written part of this story is the world, even if it aint completely unique it is well constructed for a story of this quality, for example the Legion Abyssi, or the entire Dungeon.
Grammar also has massive problems, there being a ton of grammatical errors, and even missing words, and after all this time, despite many readers pointing out those errors, not even a single one has been fixed so far, this does get disheartening since it shows the author is not interested in making the story easier to read for new readers, though it also could be due to the fact that the author has no time to edit the story thoroughly.
The formatting is a plain mess, it switches font size a lot, with the majority of time it being a huge font size which is hard to read, but again, this is barely a problem with the newer chapters.
For those who dont care about the quality of the story, that just want something enjoyable and fun to read, this may be for you. However if you want a well-written story, turn away now, you will not find that here.
Hello and whats up everyone. How are you guys? Good? I'm just started reading this web novel 2 months ago if i really remember correctly and since then i have been waiting daily to read the released chapters. I am shook that the author release the chapter daily averagely. Thats some frickin awesome dedication if you ask me. Hehe. Although the early chapter is so frustrating to read because anthony did not fully utilise or apply his skills and ability, author nerfing anthony for the sake of 'epic and cool moments', author sometimes forgot a few details such as skill names or even tge existence of some skills The story is just so-so in the beginning because anthony just farming his abilities and skills, enemy attacking his colony and he saved them, just repitition of that for god who knows for how many goddamn chapters. But now that i catch up with latest chapter i would say fvck it all! i love the game base elements/ skill names/ mutation in this web novel!! so the conclusion is *I LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVING LOVED LOVER THIS FRICKIN WEB NOVEL !!* and last but not least i hope that author stay healthy, stay and be happy.
I read around 2.000 pages of this story, so, yeah: I don't think it is awful, nor anything. But I simply can't put up with this book anymore.
The good bits, the parts that actually have any impact in the world/characters are sooo far apart from each other, separated by endless fights with mob creatures, that the reader has to go through many hours of boring chapters to get to the "good stuff".
If you want to read it anyway, I really recommend not to "overdose" and try to read everything in on go (like I did...).
A fun afternoon of reading, except for the formatting problems. The font size changes every couple of chapters, even when the override formatting option is turned on. Can adjust manually, but it's still an unnecessary interruption to do so.
The style is appropriate for the type of story, few significant grammar errors(a couple of missing letters and I-s). The general story is the very bog-standard Human->Monster reincarnation so go eat and grow while using human mind powers for advantage over the competition, the long-term interest is in the eventual reconnection and co-operation with the colony instead of forever being alone and unique. Human interludes provide greater world context and plot hooks, I have great hopes for the development of your Legion of the Dead.
Well worth a read for a unique human re-incarnated as an ant monster based view of the world.
On the other hand, I'm dropping it as of "The upper reef" chapter due to combat scene fatigue. Too much battling against random monsters with only pets for company/dialog for me.
At chapter 86, I think. (340086)
I started reading this because somebody mentioned it was similar to "Kumo desu ga, Nani ka?", I which I really enjoy.
Like many reviewers, I was super into it all until he met up with his colony. Things have just become unbearable since then, besides the human POV chapters, which I think are great. Everything related to the MC is very repetitive and progression is slow. Grammar/formatting seems to just be getting worse each chapter.
I'm dropping, for now. May come back if I read somewhere I actually gets better.
I liked ita lot at first. Now at chapter 440 i will stop reading it, because im bored. The fighting is cool, but its ONLY fighting... It feels like dbz.
I started skipping chapters with fighting because they feel Like fillers.
Was a cool read and maybe i will return someday, skipp all the fighting and just read the Story chapters.
I'll try to keep this short.
Chrysalis is a pretty interesting transmigration novel that manages to elude any of my attempts to rate it. It starts off with a distinctly Japanese light novel feel*, before branching off into a somewhat unique tale of a giant monster ants rise to power.
Having binge read all 482 or so pages already released of it, I fail to put into words what kept me from dropping this novel to go to bed.
The plot while interesting, often comes off as decidedly average. The first-person presentation of the novel leaves us rooming with Anthony, a roommate partial to bouts of rampant annoyance. And whilst not rife with them, the novel does have it's fair share of spelling and grammar errors (not anything immersion breaking, mind you)
And yet, there's just something charming about this novel I can't quite put into words. Almost like a younger sibling, you're left unable to ignore its frequent and annoying faults, but something about the way it all comes together just leaves you smiling with a warm feeling in your heart.
Chrysalis. the tale of Anthony the ant. It's not going to win any awards, but it's an interesting read I wholeheartedly recommend you give a try
Just be a little patient with the first few chapters, those honestly are a bit of a slog, even on a second pass.
