Why build something to chuck it out half-way through? (Personal opinion on the 2 volumes)

Now before I begin I want to point out there are no grammatical or spelling issues in this fiction (unlike in this review) that detract from the reading experience..

 

FIRST VOLUME:

I rly enjoyed it, the author built this awesome game world and touched on the psychological affect a class, like the one of the Mc, could have on a person. I also enjoyed the Mc himself he is dynamic and interesting, and reading his interactions with his party was always nice.

 

SECOND VOLUME:

Now here is where I have a problem with the story, and it why I rated 3 stars. You know that cool game world, and the party the Mc is with..

Well forget all that cuz its gone, now we have a “transported to fantasy world” story, but thats fine, but why does it become a different story in this volume? The Mc no longer has his class, the psychological effects vanish, also sudden gender bender, the Mc’s personality is different…

 

 

I find it rather sad, mainly cuz I was enjoying the 1st volume so much, but the authors world is what he makes it, ultimately I’m just a leech preaching my opinion. But I felt I had to mention it.

So I’m not really a good rating person but I still enjoy the story even though there might be some mistakes here and there. Overall the story seems pretty good though it may be just me....

... I really enjoyed the first volume even though the interaction and character development feels a little rushed. The emotions are there, the colour and the dept of story, we can feel how much of the effort you gave in there. Heck, the back-up is even ever so magnifico(I just help say it). You know, after I finished volume 1 and read few chapters of the second volume. I stopped.

 

Why?

 

I grieved not because the story suddenly turned from VR > transportation/isekai, nor the MC became a GenBen(Heck, I love GenBen). I was grieving on how the volume 1 became a standalone one, half-assed, and sorry excuse of a introduction.

 

I'm saddened that the volume so good was thrown away like a piece of scrap. 

 

Lastly, the final bullet that caused me grief is seeing the story being made a whole new one. The MC's personality suddenly changed(not a speck of "her" old persona, not even explained why), the development is quite forced, fast paced(in bad way). Why the heck did even put so much effort on the VR part of the story so you could just measely chuck it away.

 

You could've summarized volume 1 by a huge chunk and put the vol1 "epilogue" and write it off as prologue. Then, made vol2 to vol1.

 

If I had to choose between vol1 and vol2? I'd pick volume 1, no questions asked.

 

I still don't know why you picked the rock even though the gold is in front of you.

 

I will wait till volume 4 is finished before writing a more "proper" review. Since this is just kid's prattle on how you missed a big one.

The story itself is okay, but main character is awful.

As title says, the story itself is okay. A little slow and slightly long beginning, but you can power through it. 

But the main character ? It's very likely the most annoying character I've read of in recent time. The setting for the race and the gender bender part makes very little sense.

Decent but advancing a little too fastfrist two volumes

The story starts with a great flurry of activity focusing around a mc that is the target of discrimination.  Character development is slow but seems to pick up is chapter three as  reflections and skill development take place.

 

The story could be improved by adding a bit more world lore something to help understand the extreme rasism against half-elf compared to all other xenophobia
