Ellis Murrin died an unexpected death, but before he could experience the sweet bliss of eternal rest, a God-like being whisked him away. The God told a tale of another world in grave jeopardy and the need for a hero (or several heroes) to go there and save the people. It was looking to be a typical story of transmigration when suddenly, something unexpected happened.

Now, he finds himself standing in the middle of an ancient tomb, with a lineage that wasn’t exactly normal and a body that wasn’t entirely human.

ABSOLUTELY HAREM
  • Overall Score

Years pass in the blink of an eye.

From chapter 4-36 only 3 things of note happen. 

1. MC gets a female fox

2. MC gets a wolf pack with a female wolf leader

3. MC meets a witch(female)

Between all of that is the MC being OP and killing Monsters. There is some minor foreshadowing but this story is closer to 50 chapters than it is to 20 at this point and the plot hasn't really advanced much. Things shouldn't be rushed of course, but things are only now seeing some kind of advancement due to the MC finding another living "human," the witch. But the witch has been in 4 chapters now a nothing of note has happed and it took 4 chapters just to reach the witch's home. During that time, hardly anything has been said between the two characters.  I get that it has been 6 years since the MC last spoke to another person, but it is very disappointing. 

There is also the fact that the MC is a Homunculus. Despite being non-human, or an artificial human, in 36 chapters this has almost zero relevance to the plot. In other stories, there are plenty of humans with the same powers the MC has shown thus far. Which makes the MC's Homunculus status feel arbitrary. I don't expect this to stay arbitrary, but that is how it is at the moment. Part of the issue is that there have been no other humans in the story for the MC to compare himself to so you can only compare him to humans from other novels. One thing that would have really made a difference was if the MC was never a human from earth. If the MC was born a Homunculus. Because right now, the MC is just a strong human, in a Homunculus body that has all the functions of a natural human body, including libido. The only thing that marks him as non-human is the author declaring he isn't. The MC has a unique eye and hair color, which is supposed to mark him as something other than human, but with no other humans around those two points are currently irrelevant. So, if it wasn't for the author telling us he wasn't a natural human, the reader would have never known. 

I did say there was some foreshadowing of events to come. You hear a bit about the other humans that were sent to the new world along with the MC, some religious corruption, and a faraway maiden. It doesn't amount to much at the moment, and those issues are so far off that it almost has no relevance to the MC's travels. So, there isn't much for the reader to concern themselves about in this regard. 

There are a few chapters that aren't from the MC's perspective. Of those chapters, there are three chapters that are from the perspective of a member of the wolf pack. Two chapters follow the Wolf Pack's leader, Wight, and the other is a more comical chapter involving Plush, the biggest(fattest?) wolf of the pack. These are the best of the chapters that aren't from the MC's perspective, and I look forward to other chapters from the perspective of a member of the pack, and especially one from the young fox, Ena. 

I have a fear that this novel will never reach a point of where things really start moving. Where something actually noteworthy happens in this world the author has created. This is mainly due to the fact that the author has two other fictions that have been abandoned at the posting of this review. 

Despite this review sounding mostly negative, I have mostly enjoyed what I have read. Even with my few frustrations, I have a desire to keep reading as it is updated. 

For now at least.

From promising to boring

It starts out okay, guy gets reborn in an op body, etc, there are some monsters and wilderness survival...

But it never progresses from there. After what feels like ages he finally meets a person, and instead of heading for civilization which was his original goal, he takes a colossal detour of...

 

Wait for it...

 

The same old wilderness survival. There's no plot progression and most of the characters are literally animals...

 

It failed to evolve from a premise to a story, 50 chapters and it feels like nothing really important has happened besides at the very start where some fox was born.

To make matters worse, the author has the gall to make interludes about what's going on in the human kingdoms when he obviously has no intention of ever letting the protagonist go there (I mean seriously, the story will almost definitely be dropped by then. The heroes will be dead from old age by the time he gets there at his pace...)

 

It might not be that bad, but it's slower than it has any right to be and teases potential plots via interludes that hold literally no meaning because there is no plot progression.

Squandered potential.

The story is fairly good but the concepts that make it interesting are largely absent for over 30 chapters. The author wanted to the MC as OP as well as show growth, it's very good as showing the journey from powerful to overpowered for his crew but the MCs place in the world, his interaction with it and the world's reaction to him feel like the most compelling party of the story and yet he's complete isolated from the world. I'll be honest I was ready to stop it in place but the thought "what will happen  when he reaches civilization?" kept me reading.

A slow motion kind of story

Writting style and world building are nice.

Like was mentioned, while I aprecciate the depth of the characters interactions the plot progression is horrible, it's like watching a race between a slug and a parapletic turtle, thousands of words and dozens upon dozens of chapters and feels like nothing happened.

I can barely judge the MC development 'cause all we had is he walking in the forest with a group of animals, no decisions that defines his personality and life long goals.

I really like the story. the progression is a bit slow, but it's intersting so I didn't really mind. The characters are fun. The writing style is good, without any grammer mistakes as far as I can see.

I really recommend reading it!

What seems like an exciting adventure is really just MC walking through some woods for over 20 chapters. 3 years of walking. I'm going to drop this because its really dull and seems to be dropping rare monsters for MC to collect. *yawn* Not to mention they all seem one dimensional in thier worhsip of the MC

Atleast read it before the reviews put you off

Is good, the time skips aren't as noticable as the other reviews would suggest. And the writing is pretty awesome. One of the few novels here I'm really excited for more chapters. Keep it up dude!

Looking forward to more!

I'd say that this is one of the very few stories on this site that I actually say (out loud), "Shit, there's no more?!" When I reach the end of the available chapters. I REALLY want more.

This is a diamond in the rough with high quality writing and story. there is enough progression, so you won’t get bored. There are lots of interesting beasts and new companions however i would like for some of the beasts and people that get close to the MC not to be just females but guys (human or beast) who can be close friends or subordinates. I really like how the beasts are given their own personalities and POV chapters. All in all I think the story is going in the right direction, hope the author can keep up the pace because I want more!
