Progressing and entertaining

[Review at Ch. 255]

Hello TheCrow and fellow readers !
First thing first, sorry about my spelling and grammar because I'm absolutly not for English except reading ahah.

To people hesitating to start this novel, I can tell you that TheCrow pours much effort into this baby : main characters are relatively simple but by no mean tasteless, fleshing themselves along chapters ; MC involved in reasonably lengthed events and not like "spam fillers" some popular novels hold sometimes ; original concept of Parasite MC which is not badly exploited ; a solid grammar ( I never had to re read to try to understand ans it doesn't seem to contain much faults) ; a diversity in actions of MC who isn't just a magic swordman ( evoke some MCs ? :) ) but have a panel of possibilities.

On downsides, you can be surprised by how MC is overpowered. As author said in his synopsis [PS: This is not a novel about a kind MC, so read AT YOUR OWN RISK.] I found it a bit ridiculous at the beginning of story but you adapt pretty fast to it.
Other point I found funny is a recurrent presence of proofreading ( I may be wrong) which  make think chapters are posted in haste without erasing doubly writed words, synonyms choices. 

Dear author, I feel  the efforts you pour in this novel, your constant progression in your writing style and that wish to share a story.

Just, much thanks for this invitation in your fantasy world.

Note: bad in English AND at writing a review lmao

I was reading this back at ten chapters but the reason im still reading is because of how far i can tell the aother loves his mc at the beginng you could tell he was not sheer were to go with it in some areas but skip ahead to far later u can see his picked up a trick  were the mc has to do this thing or els  he lose something typ deal and its around here that I feel at least he starts really getting a better feeling for his story. I also like how he expanded the possessing part of the mc were before he could do it to get stronger but later mc realised he could die if he possessed something he couldn’t  controle power wise by this i mean mythical typ beings if he possessed them sheer he could get stronger but it would take longer to refine that power to make it truly his. There are a lot of things the aother has expanded apone in order ro help the story more foundation wise to and he did it in way i like to were a death god showed up saying u should be dead and not here die pls typ thing mc attack’s but death is amuned to all physical attacks giving u the impression that there are a lot of fights were u haft to do more than just swing ur fist. Im not to good at this hoke review thing but I hoped I helped the aother out by writing this maybe.

The first 2 volumes are okay, but after lucy teleports to Earth it gets way better. To improve the start, try incorporating how his soul changed his personality, like what was stated in volume 5 and don't make him so cold-hearted/psychotic . Plus his character flip-floped too fast after the academy attack. Other than that, the underworld arc and the desert arc were good.

Rate : 4.25

Parasite? Nonhuman-lead? not anymore

When this story starts out the MC keeps switching body's and leads a life as the title describes then he takes an undead body and stays in it eliminating the reason for being a bodyswitching creature which is then crowned by becoming basically human and stoping bodyswitching totally making him no different then someone who can absorb the abilities of dead foes. Author should just add then human again to the title.

At that stage the story just becomes the MC protecting his girl and being unreasonable as shit.

Came for something different but it just became the same ol' shit that is just overdone 

Nobody but the protagonist and his girl have morals or brains and even they lose it later on

I love the concept of this book. But you have major spelling and sentence structure errors. I dont know if you are typing on a cell phone or tablet. I recommend getting someone to edit the entire book. Some sentences are so bad that i had to read them 4 or 5 times and then switch the way things are worded or even add words to make them make sense.

Not perfect but still okay

I stopped at chapter 15 and will probably read further along at a later time. But here is my impression:



i like this straightforwardkind of enemy production (kill someone -> relatives seek revenge etc.)

parasite abilities are fun

quick paced 


grammar and syntax is average for royal road, its not good

the characters are changing their personalities way too fast / are not consistent

gives up on stealing forms early on


i would say this story is royal road average. A great idea in the beginning but the plot isn't planned through. Combined with the bad syntax and grammar (mine is bad too i know) and "slightly" forced plot developments make it readable, but nothing even close to perfect.

If you are searching for for something to kill time read it! Searching for a top story? Continue the search.

I like this story so far ( chapter 169 ).

The Story is fast paced althoug it slows down sometimes.

The Author tries to make all of the Main Charakters action resonable althougt the charakter undergoes a hard change of charakter in the middle of the story.

Okay story, but the grammar is horrendous.

Overall it is a pretty okay story. But the spelling and sentence structure are so atrocious, that it ruins my enjoyment of the story as a whole.

When I spend more time trying to figure out what the author is trying to put across, than getting immersed in the story, it is at a point where you need to step back and stop reading.
