On just another normal Monday, the world changed. The universe had reached a threshold humanity didn’t even know existed, and it was time to finally be integrated into the vast multiverse. A world where power is the only thing that one can truly rely on.

Jake, a seemingly average office worker, finds himself thrust into this new world. Into a tutorial filled with dangers and opportunities. In a world that should breed fear and concern, an environment that makes his fellow coworkers falter, Jake instead finds himself thriving.

Perhaps… Jake was born for this kind of world, to begin with.

 

Release Schedule:

Average chapter length: 2500

The best LitRPG i have ever read.

Reviewed at: Chapter 130 - Going down

I won't write a novel as a review. If you haven't read it before now is your time. The world building is rich, the characters are loveable/hateables, the progress is well thought out. Funny interactions, awesome action segments and a giant snake God dude. Join the discord community and have fun.

Detailed descriptions are already available so I'll just give my opinion.

Primary hunter is the kind of novel I pick up and read till I reach the last chapter available, then come back to a year later and repeat.

In short, it's good. The author is very active in the comments AND the community is spectacular. Many-a-times I have had more laughs and fun in the comments section than the chapter, and it was when the chapter was good.

Don't think more, just read it.

Really the only complaint that I have is that the dialogue feels stilted and unnatural at times. The conversations are written with perfect grammar most of the time, which just isn't how people talk irl. Other than that I enjoy the story, keep on writing and don't let people get you down.

there's some parts i didn't like but the story as a whole is definitely one of the best on here and won't be leaving my library unless something massive happens.

i need more words in my review, purple green whale yellow because elephant jeans more words please let me post it now thanks

I have enjoyed this series so far, as the main character is interesting enough as hes both relatable in some ways and a savage in others.  The storys pacing I have enjoyed its a slower pace that I enjoy but you get decent progression as well.   Through the interaction in the comment section the author seems to have a good idea where this story is going not sure how far out he has planned but It seems like this story will have a good future.

A purposely flawed character leads this dive into a system-takes-over-the-world type of apocalypse. The mixing in of alchemy and gods with a scattering of backstory are added to in-depth fighting, death, and mayhem.

It has a beleiveable mix of characters and explores more of the twist that the people who struggle to live and fit in before the system, are the ones that thrive after the system.

Its fun, its not a perfect story but i'm rating it off how I feel about the book, which is to say I have never had a bad time with it, I enjoy it thoroughly and now that i caught up and have been experiencing the great upload speed, which has been a good time. The tutorial is finally coming to an end, which will bring a lot of new stuff and finally some normal coversations. Though the crafting part was out of nowhere, but it has enough other scenes to make it feel like things are still happening so that wasn't so bad. I wholeheartedly hope you try it, or at least give it a chance and do go with the knowlege not everyone is going to like it, but you might like it.

I find this to be quite good reading material. Where usually the MC wimps out and follows the group, this guy realizes what is best for himself and goes off on his own. I enjoyed that part especially as I personally get tired of groups and the politics that often arise. The MC actively looks for challenges an boy does he find them. The writing and grammar are good. This book was definitely worth the time I spent reading it.

This is a story of coming to grips with the reality that you no longer recognise. It is also a story of someone who has to accept themselves for who they are before they could unlock their full potential and completely blossom. 
While still in its beginning stages, the story follows the MC who is just a regular joe working a 9-5 job. However, as the world turns upside down, we get to see the guy outside of that time frame. We get to know his history and his lost-passion. We see him embrace his passion with open arms and accept the consequences that came with it.
The MC is an introvert and we actually get to see this. It is not like those cases where MC is supposed to be an introvert but is the most likeable person around. If you look closely, you’d see how the situation could have been handled better but the MC didn’t because of his lack of people skills.
The world-building is fairly decent at this point, but it hints at larger things in play. Why is there a tutorial?? Who set it up? What happens to the world while humans are gone? All these questions are left to be answered later.
Grammar is fairly good and the sentences flow nicely. The dialogues are natural, which is a plus point. Overall, this is a good novel.

It doesn't fail to be interesting

Reviewed at: Chapter 141 - Mana Bolt

From the beginning of this novel the story has been amazing in the way that the world is built.I will admit that some things bothered me in the beginning about the huge amount of information you get in the middle parts of the story regarding the abilities and levels that the mc keeps blabbering about every time they pop up. But that is a good and a bad thing that helps you get a better picture of the system and the result is the realism that brings into the story. And let me say that the story is amazing unpredictable and badass in some parts.This might be one of the most satisfying mc of all the novels I've read till now. My only complaint is to my self cause I ended up reading till the newest chapter so fast and I don't have more.But it uploads every day so I get by. NOTHING ELSE TO SAY.GO READ THE STORY
