Whole story is just fantastic and the style and grammar match it.
You can get what you came for, a nice slice of life fantasy with romance, with the occasional serious plotline, and a final fantasy inspiration. And in that category it is perfection. The romance feels real, the characters are enjoyable and we finally after sooooo long get an OP MC who is realistic in using his powers. No trite plot stories to nerf him or somehow restrict his power, he is who he is and it is oh so much fun reading along.
I'm writing this as I just re-read the story for a second time and it'd be silly not to share my love for this story after such a thing.
It would be nice if the main character struggled at some point instead of breasing through everything. Very well written though, and there is a noticable difference in the writing quality from start to end.
I lost interest after a while (about ch. 44). It was cute and fun for a bit, but it never really felt like a cohesive story. The world building was shallow, the character development was shallow, the author seemed more concerned with getting a laugh than telling a good story. Also, just because you have an OP character doesn't mean there can't be challenges. Everything was just too easy, which made the plot bland.
I regret starting this novel. Each arc feels more like a waste of time to read than the one before. It's a good thing it started as a 5, or I'd be giving it 1 start at this point.
From the reviews, I expected a lot more than I got. The series has the barebones of what could be a good story, but it just falls entirely short in pretty much all aspects. The story varies from breakneck pace to a plodding crawl where a whole lot of nothing goes on. All of the characters are one or two dimensional, with the only characters with some depth being Grimmy and Lindyss despite being side characters. Even worse, characters come and go and you feel nothing with their deaths or absence because they had so little impact on you to begin with, i.e. the suddenly evil Demon King (with no foreshadowing of his evil) dying. The romance is as unbelievable as it is flimsy, especially after the decades long time skip that left Vur at the mental age of six which no one seems to mind.
I could go on and on, but I was just really disappointed by this series and finally had to drop it at chapter 80. If the author rewrote the whole thing and fleshed out all the good bones of a story and character they had set up then it could be a truly great read, but as it is it's really anemic. There are better things to spend your time on.
I didn't have the courage to start book 3.
Book 1 was a complete mess plot-wise... story went nowhere, 'arcs' (and I use the term loosely) started and ended without as much as a paragraph of exploring. Chapters' worth of foreshadowing often went down the drain with three phrases and a couple of watered down jokes.
Book 2 held it together a bit better, but suffered from the same lack of climax: chapters of foreshadowing and amped up 'tension'... and it's over with "my intuition tells me I should just do this". Come on, really?
I loved the premise of a blue mage and the whole dragons shenanigan, but it is never even explored and is just there as a convenient excuse.
Thoroughly disappointed, won't pick it up again.
First, it isn't funny, which is fatal for a comedy.
But more importantly, "the blue mage raised by dragons," is actually straight up frustrating. Twenty chapters in and I can only say I desperately want Vur, the titular character, to get his ass kicked and then to die. He is such a stupid brat that I can't stand it. I don't think I have hated a character this much in a long time; I'm fact, I genuinely cannot think of a character I dislike as much as The. Although that may just be my memory, I try not to remember poor characters and I assure you that Vur will be quickly forgotten after this review.
The chapters are not only short, but made up of multiple perspectives each - often of different events happening at different times - and the whole style can only be considered a mess. I'd say more, but what is there is so shallow I'm left without much to even criticise, it's hard to be detailed when there is basically nothing there.
This is first time I'm writing review. I finished reading demon's journey from this author. His novel have op characters lacking common sense. They are fun and stupid both. But in chapter 98 is finally over the edge.
Hero is op with lack of common sense. He ate half fruit from sacred wisdom tree. Traveled places in continent most people don't even know about. But he doesn't know what man wears? Fairy makes him wear bride's clothing and even convince him to make breast in his wedding day? Wtf. This is not funny anymore. This is only stupid beyond all level.
Those who gave 5 star have something wrong with their preference.
like the title says, why is there a Tragedy tag when this is pure comedy? 30 chapters in and nothing but silliness sure the dragons burned down a few towns but it was treated lightly.
Apart from that, most of the characters are great, i get annoyed by the MC since he makes no progress, his still a brat.
Characters are great, Story is..huh was there a story?, Comedy is fairly decent
This story will reach the top-weekly or even top-monthly, it's just a question of time. On another note… Chapters are kinda short, but have an daily release. Maybe you would consider a longer chapter a day?
Its written well, you know how to use paragraphs and you know your vocabulary. The sentences are about the right length, as are the paragraphs. However there is a lack of things that would help to visualize. How does the vampire look? The adventurers? The pooping dragon? everything I know about the MC are his dragonic eyes and that he probably is a 4Y/O midget?
Its relatively unique, to this point (ch15). BTW blue mages aren't limited to FF. Please don't rush the story, also don't crawl through it.
If anything is to bitch about it's the lack of visualization, I know their personalities but I have mostly no friggin idea how they look. Don't you dare to use images! On another note, be careful of how "deep" you make your characters, randomly creating deep characters just to never see them again… Nit a good idea. Also be careful about how and how many you introduce characters.
