by EsperReal

Original HIATUS Action Adventure Fantasy Psychological Romance Harem

Note: This is my first Story so be prepared that the first ten or so chapters suck, but from what my followers comments is that it gets better after that.


Just saying i have no idea where this story is going. How the story moves is based on how i feel at the moment.

bold MC and new skill job

dark past, n bold MC.nice line of story

new MC skill n good imagination of job


This is srsly one of the best fictions there are on RR and it might be bad grammar in the beginning but not that bad that its annoying and the grammar improves very much over short time so what are you reading this for start reading it gdamit (??•??•?)?


reviews not quite what they seem

I'm giving this five stars because of the other reviews given lately.

I feel as if the reviewers who scored this so low have only read up to or before chapter 10ish. The novel rapidly improves after this point. I would recommend the author to rewrite the first 10ish chapters aside from that i think this novel is done rather well. Albeit not perfect certainly not worth 1/2 a star some are giving. I would normally rate it with 3.5 stars to 4 stars.


just saw it so added it in my reading list ll read soon




I liked this story. Unique powers helps make this story different and special. Keep up the good work.


unique skill build

love the skills!

story nice

characters so far are alright

but still shounen

he didnt kill them!!!


Style is very generic. Lots of others have this, but you've pulled it off very well. Not focusing too much on the windows/tables, yet putting them in to keep the readers interested. 


The story plays out very well. He transitions from a nobody to the classic OP protagonist, and even though he has though battles, he is able to think things through. He isn't some battle god like in others, but is rising in power quickly. 


The grammar is very good. Nothing is perfect, so a 4.5 will do. 


The characters were explained. Nobody was there just to be there, and everyone of the main characters had a meaning. The side bozos were needed as well for comedy, etc. but generally all the characters were developed. There was a time that the mc began to know the girls he is now with, and the men who stand by his side as well. He saved them to help him, or they ended up relying on him. There is even the case with a specific character and her attraction towards him that started because of a stone, but that's for the readers to find out.



Very well done. Remarkably so, and I want these chapters to keep getting pushed out. The story is continuously being developed at a very good pace. Nothing too fast or too slow, and for the most part time skips are explained when out of the mc's POV. I want this to take the #1 spot.
