I feel like I own the author a review because I gave such a low rating so here we go.

The style is abysmal at times the fonts change sizes really often. It isn't even that hard to fix. Thats why 1.5 stars.

The story is not bad. But, it is the direction that the story takes after chapter: Small fish, Smaller pond. That I just cannot accept.

Spoiler: Spoiler

 The grammar is meh~ Not bad not good. (Not saying I can do better. :P )

Now we come to what made me drop this story. 

Spoiler: Spoiler

I have never been this critical about a story but for all mentioned reasons above I have decided in giving such a low rating. (such a huge rant.)

 Edit: read it again and got past that section. I feel like I should rate higher so :/

A fun Romp That is Worth Sharing

I started from the beginning again to read to my girlfriend.  Yes, she can read but this is something that we can do together.  She checkles or outright laughs several times each chapter.

We are both enjoying it.  I like it just as much the second time around and I get to enjoy her ractions to it.

The grammer and editing (typo, cut/paste errors) is a bit rough, especially at the beginning.  It gets better in the later chapters.

The author goes out of their way to embrace the monstrous themes of its insect protagonist. Seldom are ther pure attempts at making an alien perspective work in a larger structure of an rpg but in not compromising with the protagonists monster condition, a unique narrative thrust develops. 

While somewhat clunky at the beginning and reliant on simple training montage themes, the story ambitions grow and mature alongside the ambitions of the protagonist. Well worth a try

PROPER MONSTER ISEKAI

You ever get tired of those isekai where MC only stays monstrous for a handful of first chapters and then immediately acquires some sort of humanoid form?
I do, this one is proper monster isekai through and throuhg, something that is absurdly rare even today, even considering vast number of novels in this genre.
For a story like this - I find no issue neither with plot, nor with character development or pacing.
Just the kind of light fantasy isekai read I often crave.

An ANTensely ANTertaining Story!

By the great, grizzly beard of Gandalf the Gray, this is a great story! 

Everyone's heard of humans reincarnating into monsters in another world, but none have such a unique and well thought out evolution system. 

Our hero has no cheat abilities given to him, he only has the wits of a human inside the body of a weak ant. 

We have near death experiences, drama, monsters, mistakes, and everything else that would make a story juicy. I especially appreciate a lack of x-rated content. 

I HIGHLY recommend this to anyone who like to watch a character's growth both personal and physical.

Why All The Ant Puns?

Ok, it wasn't the ant puns, those are fine. I read this story because the idea sounded fun and I was hip-deep into Kumo desu ga, Nani ka? so what wasn't to love about a nearly identical premise? As the story progressed, I kept at it mostly because it was fun.

And Chrysalis is fun, it just isn't anything else. Its like cotton candy. The MC is barely more than someone the story happens to, the prose is bland, costars are 2D, and the plot and world feel like they are there just to give the MC something to do between leveling.

I really am surprised I stuck around this long with this story, this is normally the kind of thing I grow bored of and move onto something else. The fact it mostly updates daily is a huge factor in why I kept reading.

One of the best monster protag stories

What amazed me wasn't the worldbuilding, magic, fights or premise in itself. Some of it was pretty standard but some of it is pretty damn good, no, what amazed me were the characters. What I liked was that each character was an actual character, and despite the fact that anthony slowly became pretty powerful the author never lost grasp of WHO he was and his actions could always be seen as his and not as something done by every other clone like protag. Anthony, and many of the side characters for that matter, were their own people and that is truly amazing, especially for this site. Read this story.

Mediocre due to lack of thoroughness

This can be an entertaining story, but you must not care about format, grammar, word choice, repetitive fallback jokes, or inaccurate litrpg.

I still read this story as a fallback, but it's quality is severely hampered by the lack of attentiveness from the author.
