[A failed Participant in the January 2023 Community Contest: I forgot to fill the form]
The world ended. Bam! The Apocalypse opened the gates of Hell, demons killed everyone. Including me. But I got a second chance of life. Though it was as an apple. Which was eaten by a starving survivor, not that I fault them. But to toss my half-eaten core into a landfill?
To add insult to injury, an earthquake brought the landfill and everything in it a mile underneath the earth. I guess I'm not in uncharted waters, because good luck finding any nearby.
Not that it would matter. I am pretty sure the apple I was reincarnated as was a GMO hybrid whose potential to germinate was as stunted as the empathy of a corporation CEO. So there's that. Also, no sunlight.

Good story, the world is interesting. But... Do you know what levels are? More levels, more levels, skills, perks, skills, more and more of whatever the fuck the system has. Our MC wins at an insanely fast speed (from the reader's point of view). It gets to the point where it's tedious to read, so I just skip the hundreds of system screens.
For you to have an idea, the mc has 8 subclasses until this chapter that I'm reading, it's not even "OP" anymore, it's something more childish like super strong invincible superman comics.
Very very few stories I've read goes as hard with skills,perks,traits and whatnot as MDW, it's one of the things that sold me on In Loki's Honor and it's done well here too. Many cool abilities! Many awesome perks and a whole lot more litrpg goodness is exactly my kind of guilty pleasure.
And who doesn't love to see alien invaders get blown to oblivion with unlimited artillery barrages and giant rockets?
This was a fun romp full of meta humor but the story is all-action-no-substance, and that wears out after awhile (for me, around chapter 40). Like if Lord of the Rings was written by the makers of Borderlands and directed by Michael Bay. There are some funny scenes and some good action, but without character development to break it up, it loses its punch and you begin to question the motivation behind the characters and the whole facade falls apart.
If that's your shtick, you'll probably enjoy this, but I was left waiting for the MC to show a shred of humanity or growth and never got it. At best, I was given the barest of hints before they moved on to the next action sequence; at worst, brutal torture and unjustified murder swept under the rug without a second thought.
Beyond that, it is written with care and detail, just not my cup of tea. Enjoy!
While not the most thought out and meticulously crafted story, it is fast paced and interesting enough to see what comes next. Most dungon core seems to take forever to get anywhere while min maxing everything they can. This one tends to ingnore the power ups and go by rule of cool.
Characterization and character interaction is minimal and the meta references break immersion for me, but it's worth a few hours of your time.
I think this is my favorite dungeon story thus far. It is a total fucking satire and knows what it is doing without taking itself seriously
I think what takes the icing of the cake is the 4th wall breaking , cheeky , thumb in cheek main charecter. I just love reading his proverb and I also love that he doesnt give a rats ass about anything except his own survival and power ups.
Nothing is more grating than reading lack of self preservation dungeons like ahem some rr stories that shal not b named that end up becoming "humanoid" and "interact with towns" and "negotiate " with humans or worse, REWARD humans for beating their dungeon. The whole concept of humans reincarnated as dungeons dropping loot after other humans kill their monsters made to protect them is absolute lunacy, and im glad this mc has more common sense than half of the written royalroad stories.
mc is def big brain, and the powers and dungeon dynamics are super unique and creative. Im glad he is exploring the world instead of taking the trad dungeon troupe route.
i like how he gave the humans a chance without being cringe about his morals and as soon as he realized they werent on his side he stopped caring about them.
Overall, it is a super fun and thrilling read. I love satire esp when it is well done. I highly recommend you read this book and anyone who gives anything less than a 5 is prob trash that needs our dungeon to recycle :')
Good read , I have no qualms about the story the grammar is good ( not that I'd fully know I'm not that fluent in English mid you ,but it was a smooth read nonetheless),
The writing style is good ( in my preferences at least or perhaps not just mine , meh to each there own i suppose), the characters and the antics of our mc is funny ( or perhaps it was the writers antics I dunno).
All and all I enjoyed,love and relished the story ,and there's a lot of technical/techy things I don't know so there's all that , meh I enjoyed it nonetheless, thank you for the story, you've done good author San .
FULL MARK ALL ACROSS THE TABLE.
it's a good story and i like the humor in it. i also like how the system lets the MC take a lot of subclasses, and he uses the classes in interesting synergy with his previous ones. in a story with many different important characters that all have classes, i would definitely call the amount of variety he as a single character can manage overkilll but since the story basically only focuses on the protagonist it's welcome. taking a star away for excessive weaponry description that just amounts to numbers i automatically skip over but if you know a lot about guns and shit then the detail might be cool.
also when i read the story i picture skip looking like a gem apple from super kirby clash. in that game apart from gem apples being currency, kirby can eat gem apples to restore "vigor" which you need to go on quests. it makes me wonder what skip would taste like. at the point of the story where i've read to, skip has lost to a giant jellyfish, but i think kirby could beat that jellyfish. kirby could also beat skip and eat him. kirby would probably get the eugenics copy ability or something
This book has a dungeon premise. We have a demon apocalypse, and a benevolent group if aliens gives earth a "system" to help them survive (but doesn't actually intervene, humans have to save themselves).
Our MC has a bad first day, and ends up with his spirit stuck in an apple, and eaten, ending up as an apple core. the alien system gets confused and turns the apple core into a dungeon core (and tries to push it to making an orchard dungeon)
It's quite funny and enjoyable.
what to expect from the story
unique main character with a bit of meme
great setting and world building
funny plots and non and human interaction
I am a big fan of the story but one thing that attracted me to this story was the apocalypse category and I feel like I got what I came here for. On the comment section I've notice someone talking about the main character and how interacts with other character is justified because for him, he isn't human anymore as such he does not have the morals of a human. sure, he can related, feel or used them but he doesn't have to. this is my full opinion on the story
the main character is a unique person whether it be he's decision throughout the story and he interaction
the setting was perfect justified, but the Ragnarök ark feels kind of off for me so that's why there isn't a full five stars
It sounds absolutely bonkers and if you ever actually use your logic this novel would be an absolutely fail and yet it can entrap you.
The suspencion of disbelief doesn't trigger at all, it is really well written to avoid that and keep you interested. Kudos to the author.
The novel on itself is interesting, an MC reincarnated into a half eaten apple going in a powertrip to saving post apocalyptic earth. There is some degree of morality and yet is not overblown. There is stupidity for the sake of humour and also for the actual sake of simulating an actual thinking person.
While parts of the plot are obvious most of it is actually original, well though and while it doesn't seem planned it gels toghether incredibly well.
Again the most surprising part is that many of the things when poorly done would trigger the suspencion of disbelief and make you question what you are reading.
Many good and great novels have issues with this regardless of the topic and yet this one manages to thread the needle, grab your attention, say stupid shit in an interesting manner (like really, magical girl transformation frase?) and it feels logical.
Easily the best aspect of this novel, IT IS INTRINSICALLY LOGICAL, even more counting that most of it feels like a joke and it fits.
All in all the most surprising find of this year 2023, hoping that is not the last one but it sets the bar quite high.
