drakan_glasses BE NICE! Fair critique is fair, but be respectful & follow the review rules. There will be no mercy.
Sort by:

not a bad story but it has many plot holes!!

Story has good action, badass MC, interesting world and power system. So why do I not give story all 5 stars? The reason is simple….Plot holes!!! Too many stupid plot holes in main storyline!!! And I hate plot holes!!!


Warning spoilers ahead!!!


Why is current MC so weak? In his past life he was able to fight Chaos one on one. Chaos was already stronger than any being on planet or universe. So MC should have also been stronger than anyone other than Chaos. In recent chapters MC reached higher level power than he had in his past life, But he struggles while fighting with some normal monsters (who are not even strongest ones). 

MC got really OP mecha armor in recent chapters. He even said that if they had such android armors in his previous life they might have had better chance to defeat Chaos. So why does he not just go and kill Grimly? Current MC should be much stronger than current Grimly so why hell doesn’t he just finish the guy off? MC has knowledge from future so he should be able to find perfect time and place to kill him.

Why is time sage sitting on his ass and doing nothing? He could just go and lift seals or at least help MC in  lifting the seals.  When time sage finds out that Chaos survived his attack why doesn’t he kill him while Chaos is still weak? Why does he leave job of killing Chaos to MC and his companions. when currently he himself is much stronger? He risks the life of every living being in the universe….so stupid!

There might be some other plot holes, but these are the most important ones.


UPDATE: author answered my question in chapter 122 comments. But some answers meant that  MC and some side characters act based on their emotions and not pure logic. In my opinion that is too much risk(and not smart), when the lives of so many people depend on them. so I increased my scores to only 4 stars but not more for now.


Ignore The Start. I doesn't do the story justice.

This is gold... After the start. You need to read it, but it is shit. Suffer through it. At this point, you get like 60 chapters of gold in return.


so, i must say i'm not a “reviewer” kinda person so ill just be blunt.

A Great fiction, is what this is.

so please people, endure the first 7 chapters!

its only after those that i could get into the story.

Also the prologue is basically an info-dump, so if u can get past that you're in for a great story.


Awesome story!!! -Just skip to chapter 8

The story is amazing!!! There is an op kid, that could actually get stronger since he has a seal. By he way for those who dislike that, he ages 3 years in a day in one of the arcs. There is a school life(?) part. It is in school so I guess that counts? There are crazy people's that defy logic. Yeah, that's a much needed thing. The MC is not a baby. Yep, more like a badass. Also, there's romance. Not much, but enough to keep you satisfied. And for all harem haters- YEP THERES NO DAMN HAREM!!! There's already a love partner. 


The first arc though, that's not the mc. That's the before mc. drastic changes after chapter 8. The story is definitely not crappy. 


Great LN!!! this is definitely a must read for people who like op MC and single love interest stories


This story could be much much worse but still falls very flat. 


As harsh as this may be the best way for me to describe this fiction would be: "Someone narrating what is going on as they play with dolls or action figures."


I can normally deal with the speech tags being used the way this work has however in this case it's actually seriously hurting the work. This is actually probably a big part of the reason I would describe it as I did. As is the lack of character development, though that could be an issue of when I stopped reading.


The author seems to have given some thought to the characters lives prior to the story which is nice to see. However, the final product has failed to do justice to that effort, because all the characters feel as if they are coming from the came singular voice. So the characters have been given some backstory but are shown to behave as though they all think exactly the same way, regardless of their supposed backstory.


In fact most aspects of this work share this weird incongruity between well planned and poorly executed. The story itself has potential, even if it's lacking subtlety, but is hampered by the author's inexperience at or inability to properly convey/ing it.


I hope this will be taken as it's intended and not as simply bashing at the author's hard work. These are areas that could use improvement, but don't go back and try to fix it. Change it moving forward if you feel the need to change it, but move forward.




Enjoyable and addicting read!

As a binge reader i had a great time with the MC's along with the universe they live in! From start to finish i was eager to find out how will the MC's solve their fate along with their interpersonal development. After a few chapters i'm sure if this genre is aligned with your mood (fantasy & adventure) along with light sci-fi this is a worth while read to follow.


Can't stop reading. More please.

Some grammar mistakes here and there, and walls of text. (Took half star away for each)

The story is great in my opinion, a light read, you don't have to concentrate too much, just enjoy the OPness of everyone around the MC, the interesting environment and the struggles of the author in trying, and succeeding, to create his own amazing universe. (I meant everything in a good way)

The story's quality varies from time to time (too many flashbacks in my opinion) but overall stays high.

People who want porn stories and harem can go away. Thank you author for this great story.



The story is very good and not tiring to read. (I read all 124 chapters in 1 day and a half)

The grammar is very good.

The characters are well built and each has their mood.

The plot so far this very good.

Truly worth reading, so that now I'm sad because I'm done.
