The author knows what he wants out of this story

Reviewed at: Chapter 707 - The magnificent beard

Let me clarify. Our dear rhinoceros of an author wanted to make a simple fun story that doesn't get too heavy. The main character is supposed to be kind of ridiculous and idiotic. He wanted a yandere shadow blob and all the insanity that these texts contain. It's clearly a story that doesn't take itself too seriously. But it should still be awesome with cool power ups and evolution because litrpg.

 

There are a lot of benefits and demerits to this, mostly shown in how I rated this story. 

 

The positives;

1. It's an easy read. If you like the story at the start and the beginning of a colony you'll like it now, 700+ chapters in. It's a simple story with clear and definite progression but the tone doesn't really shift. 

2. The characters are likeable and since they aren't complicated it's easy enough to go with the flow of the story.

3. It's like popcorn, you don't come here for a 3 course meal, you come here for the popcorn. I. E. Its a simple story which has it's own enjoyment. 

4. The evolutions are pretty cool.

 

The negatives;

1. There is no real character progression in terms of personality. The simple characters don't truly grow as people. They just evolve to get stronger. So if you find the stupid decisions jarring it won't get any better.

2.  the story is also very linear and simple. You know what is being aimed for and what is going to be the end result. These filler arcs about the world  and it's politics can feel boring if you're here for a more power fantasy type story, this feels slice of life-ey even though it isn't.

3. Because it's popcorn it feels like alot of potential is lost (I feel just as much is gained) and when you're looking for something to sink your teeth into you just get popcorn. With butter and salt. Which is nice but it's no steak with chips and veg.

 

Now I'm hungry. I'll end the review here. Bye

Light-hearted, action-filled, monster evo story

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.

Some of these reviews man. Aren't doing this story justice. I hesitated on reading this for a while because a few reviews said that it was non-stop DBZ action with no plot. Now I'm a shounen junkie myself, but DBZ is too much for me. I need some sustenance with my action. Man was I glad those reviews were wrong. I had some much fun reading about Anthony and his family. Was there a bunch of action? Yes. Did I enjoy myself? Heck yeah! It's a light hearted story with its tense moments. The overarching story is intriguing and the side characters were fleshed out enough that I actually enjoyed the different POV chapters(Wild right?). I inhaled all 700+ chapters and now I'm all caught up. ˚‧º·(˚ ˃̣̣̥᷄⌓˂̣̣̥᷅ )‧º·˚  You may take this review with a grain of salt since I will acknowledge that I have a weakness for non-human leads and monster evolutions. FOR THE COLONY!!!!!!

For the power of White Bearded One!

One of the best stories with non-humanodal, non-bipedal MC where author delivers and don't go hiatus after 20 chapters on his readers. And updates daily. And probably the only one story where monster MC strives for community rather being loner.

I'm mentioning it, because writing story fantasy story with human MC using western'ish culture is easy. Authors have entire legacy of literature, stereotypes, values to back on. But writing story about other species that is not elves, dwarfes or other bipedals is really hard without going into bull*** or burning out after few chapters.

Font size changes continually

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.

A surprisingly good casual read

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.

I like this story. Maybe even love it... Like it. Yes. But let me elaborate. The style is what gets me tbh. As everything in this fiction (except for the grammar) the style is smart yet sometimes a bit lacking. I always like it. Sometimes love it. RinoZ is handling worldbuilding and perspectives smartly, so that one can experience the world nicely.

The story... is fine. Relative slow pace, but I like it. But once again. Of all things... it is smartly done. You never know what to expect.

Grammar... Well the upload speed is enormous... So ofc the grammar will be a little bit weaker than in other fictions, in which editors go over every word and search for a more poetic solution... But again. I like it. Or rather: It's not as bad as some make it out to be. It's noticeable. Mostly in the earlier chapters. And there it sometimes breaks the immersion, but nowadays that is rarely a problem.

Characters... We have typical tropes... When we talk about humans. Monsters are well designed. NPCs (Non protagonist characters) are well thought out, diverse, get enough story to feel real and so on. But yet. I feel that there could be more... More... Ah I don't know. I'm probably just a Karen. Our Protagonist is a cool dude, yet somewhat bananas. Weirdly enough my best conparison would be Goofy (+40 IQ), which I do enjoy quite a bit.

Well that about sums it up.

Chrisalys brings a fresh wind into the Isekai genre... By not being Japanese. 

Better than SAO? [Yes] (Nothardtbh)

A good read? [Yes]

Worth supporting? [Yes]

Do I want to become a shareholder?[Maybe]

Aight, Cya!

Light-hearted enjoyable read, many issues.

Reviewed at: Stepping forward

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.

Puts the Ant in Anthony

Reviewed at: The upper reef

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.

A fun 1st person comedy with slice of life factor.

Reviewed at: Stairway to Biomass

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.
