Large chests are said to encompass all manner of hopes and dreams. Men covet them. Women envy them. But one fact holds true - everyone wants to get their hands on some big ones.

The same holds true for one intrepid adventurer - a strapping young lad by the name of Himmel. Armed with his grandfather’s trusty longsword and the dream of being the strongest, he sets out on the journey of a lifetime! It is sure to be a long and dangerous road, fraught with danger! And it all starts with a simple test - reach Level 5 in the dungeon called the ‘newbie zone’ and earn the right to become a full-fledged adventurer!

However, such things get hopelessly derailed when his adolescent mind beholds an exposed chest for the first time. A fateful meeting that would inevitably lead his life in a direction he never even dreamed of!

This fiction is written, maintained and owned by Neven Iliev. It is also a participant of the WriTEr's pledge.

Can I just take a moment to say just how much I like this novel? No seriously I really love this novel. So far it must be one of the few handful novels on this site I ever liked as much as I do.

Moving on with the review, what's there for me to say? I find this novel to be close to perfection. The theme really resonates with me, I like the ecchi scenes, I like the serious scenes, I'm captivated by the tension build-ups. The novel is very well writen, so much that I find it quite hard to think of the author as an amateur writer, I mean this guy must definitely have an editor or two who not only correct grammar but edit the story itself, I mean how can this be done by one person at the speed that it releases? As you can see from my review I'm very amazed.

Now lets start with style. Love it. Not much to say, I'm a huge sucker for game-like novels specially ones where it's not really a guy playing a game but the world itself is gamelike. I also am a fan of skills and monster protagonists. If I had anything negative to say about the style it would be the stats, I mean I feel like lately (as of chapter "Those who are Left 6") stats are kinda growing at a bad pace, I feel like they are growing too high and it's giving them less worth. 

Moving on to story, for this I feel basically the same as I do for style. I like these types of stories, I'm a sucker for monster MC's and I'm a fan of the sexy content, specially the dominant manner in which the MC behaves in. 

Grammar, It's very clean, as I've said I feel like the author must have some help editing because the mistakes I've seen have been so few and far inbetween that they might as well not exist. In fact I've probably only come across 2 or 3 in total.

Characters, another great part of this novel. Author is really flushing out it's MC, enough so that we the readers can see that there is a method to his madness. Side characters are not left behind as we get some background on his minions and even some of the other side characters. There is also not too much clutter as in the author isn't adding a thousand character and forgetting them 2 chapters later. Most of them add to the story and when they stop being relevant there is a reason why they don't appear anymore.

Finally I'd give this a 5/5 but that would mean it's perfect and no novel is really perfect so instead I'm giving it a 4.5/5 and I feel like I'm being unjust here and it should be higher. If it were possible I'd give it a 4.8/5. There isn't much I can recommend the author to improve upon because from my amateur perspective this work is already very well polished and in my eyes is so well done that I can't think of anything to improve upon at this momment. Anyways to the author if you read this, please keep going I'm a huge fan and I'm really cheering for you. For the readers, who want to read this, give it a try I'm sure you will really like it and if you don't then is my opinion something may be wrong with you. =D

The author, I believe, is a magician of writing.

Skillful in the art of misdirection and manipulation, what I thought was probably a story similar to DanMachi based on the title and synopsis was actually quite different but truly quite fun and unique.

With only a very few grammar slips here and there (like an incorrect word within one out of 3 chaps, so it's incredibly minor), if you don't don't mind gratuitous gore, sex, and cursing, then this story is quite the interesting and unpredictable read.

I will cry if it ever stop.

This is perfection.
This is like a drug in the form of written words that is given for free.
I always want more, it give me pleasure and the best of all is that i can't make an overdose and it doesn't get boring over time like most novel with the same length.

This shiny novel turned me into a absolute fanatic.

Monsters can be named 'Gary Stu', too...

It's well written, technically speaking.

Even so, the MC is a plot armored, dense, quickly OP protag.
Also this is yet another 'This character sheet's development' type story where the (protagonist?) gets magically convenient plot developments, and power-ups like candy from the sky.

The fact that he's not human is 'clever'-ish-- but that only holds you a few chapters.

I don't understand the popularity honestly. Rooting for the MC to prey on humans is probably a draw for many. As you're normally 'wired' for the MC to survive, you are anxious about the prospect of parties of experts gunning for him eventually. Yeah... when they act like fodder for the story you realize that was a wasted concern.

I mean- you would think the MC survivng as a monster would be a point of suspense/challenge- but no- not so much...

  • Some allies appear flaky, but are actually deus ex plot foils with conveniently masterful planning and execution.
  • Some opponents act 'smart', but are actually dumb and die stupidly.


So, those two points make for no 'challenge' or 'suspense' after you realize this is just an oddly 'monster skinned' 'Gary Stu' adventure. I guess goblins weren't 'monster' enough.

Eventually you get to the whole hentai schtick, featuring the ridiculousness of 'erotic' vore and the 'naturally resulting' mindbreak if you're can believe/are into that.

(sigh)

Well, 'whatever'...

Overall, pretty mindless/pointless.


The novelty wears off pretty quick-, but I'm sure some will find this to their liking.

For me, the forced platting and super-thick plot armor is what dragged me out of it. Well, the vore and mindbreak helped. Too many stupid things layered on top of one another and I don't find it palatable anymore. Add to that the overall pointlessness, and the clear intent not to handle any of the implied challenges in a reasonable/logical manner (instead solving with deus ex contrivances and conveniently compliant plotting) and I'm no longer curious... :(

I will say that the concept suggested a challenge in writing (in my mind) where having a mimc survive outside a dungeon (etc.) would be an interesting story. Well, this isn't that story & I suppose that's ok- but to so radically make this... whatever it actually is- to make the writing unchallenging...

Well, I'm sure many like it as-is

I just did the 'Advanced Review' scoring, and now I'm wondering how others can honestly give some of the ratings they do.
'Style' is subjective- so I'll let that go, though I don't see this as being anything beyond normal execution with a different type of character.
'Story' is also debatable- so I'll just say (how I see it) where the story is lacking a plot up to where I stopped reading. To me 'and then another thing happened' repeatedly isn't the same as 'story'. There is absolutely no goal, the plot armor on the MC removes any suspense. The convenient power-ups destroy any 'needs'... On to the next point...
'Grammar' is good. Nothing worth quibbling over there...
'Character'... The MC has none, and everyone else is disposable or a caricature. Anyone 5 stars this- I'd love to hear why.

None of this detracts from it's likability- it is somewhat amusing, and had potential. if you like it 'as is'- more power to you. I'm just not a fan of the nonsense hentai it's quickly becoming.

What can I say about this novel other than "It's perfect". Even the title is linked to the plot, attracting careless readers with a promise full of soft and bouncy things.

Open to know what I mean

Story about how the mc is born.

Random adventurer P.O.V

In the end, I'm glad I got trapped.

If you think gratuitous amounts of sex and violence are substitute for world building, character development and plot, this is the novel for you.

I went into the prolouge thinking that this would be another throwaway boring fantasy world fiction with some stupid harem that is only there for fanservice, and maybe if I was lucky decent grammar. I came out of the prolouge thinking, huh did he just kill the main character? I want to see where this goes. And 30 minutes later I was on the last chapter that had been released laughing my fucking ass off.

 

The humor is great, the way the story isn't just there to support the authors jokes is great. And I mean... Just look at the title and read the description once you get past chapter 3 you will not want to stop reading.

Loved it and then hated it

I really liked it at the beginning. The MC had an awesome personality. His growth was awesome. Then he started summoning the Demons. When I had to vote if I liked sexual content I put yes without reservations. God I was mistaken (not that my vote meant something). I really didn't want to read a pornographic story. It was almost as if the Mimic became a secondary character and the main action was the one between his two demons. Also even though the mimic growth in strenght was smooth, it looked like the humans were just fodder even when they were the same level as him.
