Fed up with a world where science has made every fantasy a reality and people just don’t care about stories anymore, a young video game developer named Kai uses ancient black magic to transport himself into one of his games, titled: Choices.

Disturbed by his powerlessness on Earth, Kai makes sure to give himself the ability to change this new world as he sees fit, literally.

If you were ridiculously powerful, would it be as cool as you thought it'd be?
Would you throw away all your morals and do whatever you wanted?
Would you find happiness? Would you find love?
Or would you end up realizing that…

Absolute power is pretty depressing.

This is the opposite of the classic OP JP day-to-day fluff (Such as Death March). It has the same aimlessness and OP MC, but instead of slowly developing the op powers and flat characters, RE:WRITE jumps to the point when everything is meaningless, because the reality of truely overpowered abilities are, as WhoCares? stated, 'depressing'. This story is a beautifuly written, thought provoking masterpeice.

 

That said, if you are looking for an easy read, I would not recomend this webnovel. The language itself isn't hard, but if you avoid the point of the novel hoping to get some juicy fights and easy comedy, there's not enough to sustain a reader. (I add this beacause I often enjoy an 'easy read', such as Library of Heaven's Path)

Also, I waited to finish the entire work before declaring judgment on it. It's too easy to either miss what an author intended, or have an author ruin the story with a terrible ending. In my opinion reviews made without having read the material are unfair and more often than not inaccurate. I'm happy to say that the author does not ruin this story with it's ending, but I do think that it's easy to lose interest in the middle. Again, I don't recommend this as an easy read: much of the aimlessness is setting up the end, but can be a slog.

 

Next: the reason I took of 0.5 of a star from style because I found that there were some inconsistencies in the pacing, and that from time to time I would have trouble identifying the perspective. The author uses both 'flaws' on purpose at many times throught the novel, which I apreciate, but other times I felt like the flaws were just getting in the way of the immersion.  

 

Lastly, thank you WhoCares? for the great read!

Two fascinating stories add up to a bizarre mess

There are two stories here. The first one is as the premise suggests: a subversion of the standard tale about an overpowered protagonist and his crazy antics. The twist is that the protagonist, Kai, is actually driven to despair by his abilities, as he realizes the full implications of unlimited power. The second one is a somewhat typical but charming story following a party of misfits: Kai, the Hero, a goddess and the Demon Lord himself. As they travel around the world with their own completely different objectives, they develop unexpected bonds and grow as people.

These stories could work on their own, but they end up ruining each other when stitched together like they have been here. It's hard to get much satisfaction or closure because, as soon as you get invested into a storyline, the plot changes gears and prevents any further development. I’d like to say that it's analogous to sandwiching multiple different works of philosophy and fantasy together and hoping for the best, but that's not an analogy. It's exactly how the plot works.

Let's talk about the first storyline. It's what we came here for in the first place, right? We want to sit in Kai's shoes and understand how everything ends up so tragically. Sadly, only the first and the last few chapters are dedicated to it. We spend the rest of the story mostly unaware of Kai's perspective. The guy becomes a side character, with no development whatsoever. We're also clueless about the full extent of his powers and motivations, making him increasingly hard to understand and sympathize with.

Only at the very end do we get a full explanation of Kai's abilities and actions, but it feels like a massive info-dump that we should have actually experienced rather than being told about. It leaves so many questions unanswered, so many ramifications unexplored... Alas, rather than focusing on this storyline and the philosophical aspects of it, the bulk of the plot consists of all sorts of arcs with unrelated themes and characters.

The sad thing is that, as I said before, the second storyline is actually quite charming and would work on its own. It would, if it weren't for Kai; or rather, our incomplete knowledge about Kai. See, he would serve his role in the party as a guide/mentor/trickster even better if we as readers were also completely clueless about him. Complete transparency would work as well, since we would know where he stands from the very beginning.

Unfortunately, the story picks the middle ground, leaving a lot of mysteries about Kai unanswered until the end. Rather than making the reader feel intrigued, this becomes a source of frustration. We have no idea why he does or doesn’t do certain things, nor can we judge whether he’s right or not; there’s not enough information. As a result, the pain, struggles and doubts of the other characters feel like a joke when we know that Kai is around to fix everything, but for some reason doesn’t. Plus, Kai’s advice can sound hypocritical and shallow coming from him, so any character development seems to be built on top of lies.

I would love to talk about the specifics of characters, arcs and philosophical discussions, but the story renders everything ultimately pointless by not developing its storylines to their fullest. That’s a shame, as the author is obviously competent with words and knows how to write interesting characters. Sadly, he wasn’t able to bring it all together to tell a coherent story this time, but I hope to see more from this author in the future.

good story, jumps POV Frequently

ok, so the story as im reading it so far is pretty good, however there are so many things that could be fixed or improved upon. first off, one thing that is really annoying is that this story jumps from one characters pov to another without warning, one chapter your reading one pov then your reading another pov without any notice and that it doesnt tell you or mark the name for the next POV right away. ill update as i go along, or if i just get tired of this

A good story with some flaws

I truly enjoyed this story. The premise of having someone with ni-omnipotent power going around doing as he/she pleases is something that I love the thought of.

my complaint is that close to the end (starting around the dark goddess’s appearance) I had trouble understanding what was going on with the main character and the people around him slowly escalating from then on all the way to the finish causing me to repeatedly reread so that I could actually understand what was going on. thankfully it sorted its self out at the end.

The switching point of view was very jarring where I constantly needed to figure out who I was actually following.

overall a very entertaining story that I’m glad that I spent my time to read (and reread).

Very good but barely enjoyable to read

This is more like, what if you were Omnipotent? What would you do in that case?

First of all, this is a really complex story, where everything is only explained around the end with there being many hints during the novel, the problem is that those hints are very hard to notice at first, and without knowing those hints, some parts of the story later on get harder to understand.

Here we have a MC who likes to make very well made story driven games slowly losing his job because of such games being no longer profitable for the company he is working, so he transports himself to one of his game worlds where he is literally God.

But being god can be problematic, like the MC finds out pretty fast.

There are quite some flaws with this story, first of all it being seriously complex and the reader is barely getting anything explained of what is actually going on, secondly the fact that this novel while being very good in quality, is sadly not really a enjoyable read.

I'm really bad at things like a review but I have to say that this is one of the first books (or fiction, however you'd like to call it) that made me frown over some events of the book for a half day after I've read it.

I can only tell you that this book is very much worth the time and I would even donate some money if I had an acctual PayPal account.

The first 3/4 parts of the whole "fiction" I can only tell are nice, interesting and are really well writen, at the last part (The acctual thing that made me frown upon it for half a day) was for me the best part of a book I've ever read becasue of the emotions I've had. It was the first time that something like this had ever happened to me, not even in movies or some of the series I've had watched made me feel like this.

The characters and the whole story are for me acctually a masterpiece, because I would never be able to write something like that with my stupid mind that can't even imagine something like that (Well it can think something up but it would really be only for me then.) .

This story is great, the characters are pretty interesting and already show a good depth,  the world is still to be developed, but even here the author show great promise, already building a good background which i hope will develop in a great story.

The only thing i don't really like is that right now only the first 7 chapter are from the mc pov, but it is still enjoyable as the characters are, as i said before, pretty interesting, and i realize they are needed in order to build the world, but still, i miss the mc.

Overall it's a really good story, especialy for rr, it will propably be character driven, and sad, but the journey will proprably be worth it.

Unless the author drop it.

Please don't drop it.

If you don't plan to think while reading...

It started so well... Oh so fucking well. But the dear autor screwed up.

 

I have nothing to say about style and grammar. Note is speaking for itself.

 

Then story and characters. As I said the story started pretty good. It was well paced and structured. The characters were slowly but steadily growing more and more interresting.

But then everything came to an end. Zero (yeah you know the guy who's supposedly the main character) stopped his developpment. And when I said stopped it's stopped.

You're gonna say to me that's he is mysterious has a big plan and whaterver.... But it more complicated than that. When you absolutly DON'T have one FUCKING clue about the MC motives then guess what happens ? Well that makes your story funcking unreadable. And don't take me for one of those way too impatient guys. No no no. I don't need to know everything at once. I get that. That's obvious. There would be no story. But here you have nothing to even base hypothesis on. Where's the fun in following the adventure of a manipulative pervert who's supposed to be the hero without having as far as the shadow of a clue about his plan ? You tell me because I can't understand.

 

Zero is the creator. He's omnipotent (and I mean it). So either something escaped his grasp. In that case why not telling the reader ? Not telling but making the reader guess ? Again I don't need answers right of the bat but clues. But no, author decided that I as a reader was not worthy.

Or he has everything under control but then he's a giant fucking pervert. Or if he's not a fucking pervert, then again why not telling us a bit of his motive ?

It's been maybe 30 chapters since we heard about the Hill. 30 FUCKING chapters. Still no idea what it is.

 

I prefer to think a bit about the characters I read about even if in the end my guesses (guess ?) were completly wrong rather than being solely lead by my nose. You know why ? Because I have the feeling the author is just doubting my capacity to think. If you cannot make a story yours even a tiny bit, it's a wrong, useless and crapy story.

And of course every time you think the beginning of an answer is coming there's some sort of ridiculous and not even funny plot gimmick that comes in the way.

 

To top it off we have some filler arc. Yes academy arc, I'm looking at you. Fuck you. You're the easy way I prayed the author not to take. Damn you for existing academy arc.

I don't have words in english to finish so i'mma finish in my mother language.

Bref, le début était plutot encourageant et puis c'est parti en couille.
