Do get comfy folks this one will take a while..
A New and improved MC ? nope , though I do feel I enjoyed it as a poor continuation.
The most headache inducing portion of this book for me is actually on the cover : the renamed MC name .. its hard to pronouce in my head and makes me stumble reading it everytime the words come up.
Kids would perhaps try to pronouce said names though in nearly every instance it would be shortened and made better by using a shortform colloqueal term such as Izzy ect.
Content wise each character has some form though I find it difficult to accept how some things come straight from left field.
Exampled best by the ripping of a spine from the enemy combatant.
The fight seemed poorly thought out and seemed to have been placed in more as a shock value that fell flat.
The things I enjoyed however were some of the more basic things like the tv production magitech idea.
Overall im not surprised this looks like it got dropped though if it updates ill still read it as the first volume was just that good.
So far so good.
No really terrible issues other then a lack of chapters.
Of those that exist all have entertained well.
A quiet achiever, perhaps it will get more popular.
I decided to review this book early as I had spare time and slow internet.
Worth a read for most fantasy fans.
Such a decent base story that is absolutely ruined by a few issues.
Gender is WRONG in almost every page the author will refer to them as He when its a female and often times it feels like this story has seen revision by a lazy edit version.
The good news is there are a few decently thought out plot points and it can be interesting if you can get past the glaring issues such as narrator vs author snippets that I feel should get deleted..
I recommend the author finds an editor to fix the basic issues.
Zombie or Zombay ? If you find yourself asking this question you have read a page or two here.
Many will find it funny and lets face it dark humour is what a zombay should be about...maybe ?
I feel like I lost brain cells reading this and i didn't have many spare to begin with.
Perhaps it will entertain those seeking something different.
This book is pretty decent.
It has some funny moments that focus can be somewhat imperfect.
However the worldbuilding and exceptional humour here are superb.
It does have some faults and is far from perfect , spoiler alert certain chapters contain the worst spoilers and hopefully one day that god of unwanted stuff will stop spoilering the story should the author deem it (happens about chp100) ..
The names of chapters though are on point and this book had several funny moments so read it .. do it for the goblins.
Sadly not every review is a good one and this book I recommend aborting.
Nothing wrong with the grammar at first , the problem lies within the story itself.
Isekai genre is oneof my favoured types and while I wasn't expecting a prize winning title this knockup is by far the worst I have ever read including engrish MTL'ed stuff.
Well aside from my own work that is <lol dont read that either>.
The main problem this story has is simple if you remove the stats there's almost nothing there that flows properly. The perspective was doing no favour to this novel.
The MC is descriibed as "Perfect" and "Lady" all very common in xania style novels and could have been made better by using more normal phrases.
So much time was spent and yes it was harsh to review so early into the story though it gave my a headache to read as few chapters of this trash as I did.
There were really good portions of the story that deserved to have more time spent on them then the stats , the slime start was about the only mildling decent part of the episode I enjoyed.however you could have used .more. either humour or wiggin out ect , after the incident instead it all just bleeds into each other.
The MC name also happens to share with azerinth healer's nickname , but thats just a random issue.
I feel the writer needs to spend a little time with women observer style to find out why this rates so low and how to fix it.
War is an ugly thing ,it gets even uglier with superpowers.
Fantastic work though it does get pretty bad if you dont like tragic storys.
Starts off pretty strongly and spirals towards great bouts of depressing awesomeness.
There are minor issues though as when an extra point of view is added the formatting changes a bit too drastically and detracted a touch.
It's epic stuff and I do look forward to any new chapters.
What we have here is a mixed bag of blessings and painful to read.
You can actually follow the story if you dont get hung up over things like grammar , logical character introductions and common sense.
True fans of the OP MC faction will enjoy the very descriptive scenes of monsters and shallow sidekicks with cliche villians thrown in to really make it "isekai" but its real focus like the title says is as an Orphanage .. Psyche.. yeah this concept could be better.
The sidekicks or "Orphans" are not introduced very well and so far I wouldnt let the MC look after a dog let alone 10 kids, clearly the writing gets better over the chapters.
Slice of monster hunting actions and some really interesting background worldbuilding via politics was forced a little but acceptable and gave this book a little more depth which it surely needed.though would prefer it wasnt so info dumped.
Not my pick for book of the year , HOWEVER do keep an open mind and this should serve as a very good example of how the writing has improved throughout each few chapters getting better.
My advice is to follow the author , and maybe read this book if you can get past the rough bits.
A wonderfully realised world has become a story summary.
The whole story feel more like reading an outline of a story rather then its actual content.
Most characters feel shallow and have almost zero relevence further on.
Despite this some things were done rather nicely.
The character screen where it shows the mood for instance was appreciated and gave the MC at least a little depth.
Sadly only the MC has any kinds of depth larger then a puddle.
Ways this could be improved : Warning includes spoilers.
This author took pains to name some slimes early only to later relgate them to a forgotten after thought.
Which is more then can be said about the MC and his "kids" who dont even get the afterthought naming process.
Name the Kids , sure they were once slaves and they may well already have names so introducing them is a must unless they are forgotten because they die the same chapter but they dont so introduce em.
The Rings were a nice idea and them as pressies is good but you should actually say the different messages in them.
Kings are people and dont just go around never using their own names and only referring to themselfs as king.. name him.
Adverturer reception people are people too and names will always be better.
Senses : When your MC faces off against an undead for example I want to know how they smell or look like or even what sound they make when the MC tramples them.
What you did perfectly :
The only ones that got given names here are the monsters , And those are done well.
Avoiding the full harem route early in. To be fair you probably deserve one more star for this fact alone.
[s]Avoiding food porn [/s] ah please note I praised it for this then encountered FP.
Adding smithing most fans of this category enjoy a bit of the olde forge talk.
