Great Story, needs Proofreader

Amazing story and enjoyable characters. Great job of forcing a guy into the life without making the story feel forced. Only real downside is the very clear lack of proofreading before updates. Nothing unreadable just the last bit of rough draft needing polish.

I just really like this story

It's a good story so far iv even been re reading it. Now take my review with a grain of salt this caters to everything I like. 


I like anti heros, I like logical thinking, I like robots and mundane people doing good vs individuals with crazy powers. The story is solid there are spelling errors but nothing that takes away from the story. The plot is good the world well built. Yup I give the author a atta boy and say keep it up you have tallent.

Just take my star.

Well, what can i say, i love the story. The character feel fresh to me, everyone is living, mc not typical mc (idiot beta male), the side characters not always on mc side. 

I just hope maybe after this mc will become real artificer where he combined mech with human flesh, created new limb or body like half cyborg but working cyborg. I mean you cant blame me, his name is literally mechromancer. Where author get from Necromancer (get it?)

I will say that one of the things that I enjoy about it is that it actually applies all the little details when it comes to superhero worlds. It looks at how supertech might affect the world and takes a much more ground level look and approach to everything.

I'm pretty sure some inspiration was taken from d-list supervillain, but it veered off the tracks right away. Very good so far!

  • Overall Score

Pretty good but I've yet to see proof of the Harem 60ch in

Reviewed at: Chapter Fifty Six

Good read. 

The tags maybe need to include 'betrayal' since thats pretty much 80% of the plot so far. I've also yet to see any harem and there has only been 1 'sex scene' 60 chapters in.

This is an entertaining read

I love this 'superhero' world the characters are in. the focus of tech and the MC's use of it.

I love this series, my only complaint is that there aren't more chapters

  • Overall Score

As of Chapter 14, this is easily one of the better superpowered stories on RRL. I agree that it does remind me a little of D-List Supervillain, but there are more than enough differences for it to stand on it's own. There's good action and excellent world-building. I look forward to reading more.

Full of life and a party of plots within plots

This story is truly something else. From harem stories, this isharem done right or at least to my taste. One of the few things that destorys a harem is in its lifelessness of the harem members. And this story is the opposite to that. The characters, all of them, are overflowing with personality that it sorta is  part of why it is so entertaining and interesting. (I am not a good reviewer of stories in RRL and often times I'm a mere lurker here and there.)

Honestly one of my favorite on here so far. I normally don't like Sci-Fi too much, or rather find it hard to get into since I prefer magic and fantasy, but this is pretty cool. Can't wait to see what happens next!
