The Bounty Hunter

The Bounty Hunter

by writer.101

Vicious criminals, blood-thirsty monsters, wanted fugitives. As long as there is a bounty on their heads I will hunt them all down. The other world is a cruel place and even as I work there part-time, I look forward to the moment when I can abandon it for good. I simply hope that my remaining time there does not change me anymore than it already has. I have enough regrets as is.

Can I keep my normal life as a high school student in Japan even as I fight and kill in a degenerate other world? Can I keep this secret which would shock my world if discovered? After encountering this unexpected crisis, I’m not really sure. I am a cold-hearted merc, so why am I stuck having to play hero?

Sort by:

like the title said i would tell and hopefully that author can somehow cover the few major plot-holes and plot-logic. well like they said land without holes bring more value rather than one with hole all over the place.


  • the first problem i saw is the year its 2088 but the lack of tech-improvement is super bothering me. there is lots of way i can think of to cover this hole for example; MC reading history for his homework or something and then u (author) can just make few reason why the lack of tech-improvement, like "i wonder if WW2 happen would the world fall into chaos or something bcuz technology break-thru usually happen bcuz of war." or "i wonder if calamity not happen at that year 20xx our technology not becoming stagnant as today."
  • the second problem, u dump information easily while u can just put it in dose on a chapter or something. | not to big of problem for most but yeah it is for few.
  • the third problem, the world building is missing by a LOT of LOTS.
  • the fourth problem, the char too shallow, his parent shows up from time to time but i cant see distinct char of them
  • the fifth problem, the MC is a bit flawless from my perspective and flawless MC would usually lead into horrible ending.



My pen is mightier

This is THE BEST story I have read on this sight and I hope you keep up the good work.


As the author inclined a story to waste some time, though a really good one.

Not really a reviewer but anyway.


I find the story really good and read through it all in one go, whitout feeling like I needed a real break (Small breaks like sleep and dinner)

There is no problem wiht the grammar and it is easy to read and understand. Of course nothing is perfect so there might be some misspelled words or misstyped ones but nothing that I can remember and that in itself points to the good grammar.


I lke the characters, but I am not a fan of judging the characters so I will only say that I personally don't see a problem with anyone of them.


The style is the "biggest problem" for this story as I feel that I have read a lot of stories with a lot better and more fluent style. (Ths is the Authors first story and he has himself said some words about this, and trying to improve)

I feel like there could be a more fluent style so that you could follow the connection between the chapters. In this case the chapters almost feel like an entirely dfferent part of the story so that the previous chapter has no connection with the current one. (Maybe a bit exagerted)


But considering this is the authors first story I hope that he improve on this for the next arc or story he decide to write.


All in all it was an enjoyable read and a very good story that I recommend

Hwit Draca of Albion

This story is definitely worth the time it takes to red and then some, all charicters seem fleshed out, it understands that it has cleceas (how the fuck do yo spell that) and makes jokes about them and so much other stuff.

I do hope one day the writer comes back, but life just happens sometimes so its understandable if he never does. I'll just sit here eagerly waiting for their return.

Hope lifestyle treating you all well


Love the story and pleas continue your craft.

I have read this work many times and it is still one of my favourites. Even though writer.101 stated before hand that he dumps full content after completion. It still pains me that it has been over a year since the second arc passed and no updates.

Spoiler: Spoiler
T Dot.

Absolutly LOVE this Book it is Amazing. Exactly the type of book I've been looking for, was hooked for an entire weekend binge reading this book, who needs sleep. Can't wait for next chapter and am currently fidgeting like an addict thats just been "hung out to dry". Of course had a few issues here and there where the story didn't flow just right or a grammical mistake but nobody is perfect. 

The gender Bender tag on this book put me off for Quite a while but never have i been so Wrong. though on upside more chapters were released whilst i was hesitating :D. 

The MC is Badass, Cool, Calm and Collected also Straight forward (most of the time) love the way he was written wish there was more like him. 

Well anyway you can add another devoted Fan to your ranks, can't wait for the next Arc. I truley can't find the right wording for how much i love this series !!!

P.S. Drop it and I will humt you down.  No Pressure :D


Fast paced with good general world building

Fantasy + modern world. Seperate and even mashed together to bring an enjoyable speedy ride(mostly) on a well built world that is constantly getting fleshed out. Story focuses alot on the plot which includes many twists and turns. OP protagonist with some OP enemies.


Arc 1

Extremely fast paced that it actually makes you keep guessing what will happen.

Fights are short and sweet. Enemies come and go, with no one overstaying there welcome to slow the pace down. 


Arc 2

Focuses more on bringing fantasy  to a futuristic modern world. The pace gets slowed down by alot. Plot becomes predictable halfway through the arc. Some out of character decisions. Repeatedly fighting the same enemies throughout the arc gets old fast. Not a good successor in that regard Arc 1.

Arc 1 > Arc 2 by a lot. Nevertheless, a good story overall.


Really unique and interesting story

The story actually keeps you hooked! It doesn't  get boring and the story actually moves. Unlike some stories that stick to one part of the story and gets stuck there. Really recommend reading.


Mileage may vary, but it was okay for me

There were parts that weren't to my tastes. Like too much edge and pessimism and nihlism at times. Pandemonium seemed more annoying than interesting most of the times, though it didn't tank the arc for me, and there were signs of originality and cool things. Harem wasn't awesome, but it was good enough. Plots in general were mostly meh in concept, but carried out well and in relatively interesting ways.



A good mix of suspense romance and comedy, really good stuff once you get into it.

(By ridiculous I mean funny btw)
