Transmigracion Rapida Protagonista Masculino [No B...
Enjoyed this novel for the most part, but during the last stretch leading up to the ending, I was really just forcing myself to finish the novel as things became fairly stale with the MCs prolonged travels to other worlds. Moreover...
Cant say Im a fan of this open ending and honestly feel a bit unfulfilled and let down. Novel was fairly enjoyable, but really wish we couldve seen more of what happened afterward. The MC went through so much effort to save Reina, and they dont even really meet... Then theres his relationships with the other women which I honestly believe the author was better off not building up so much when nothing came of them in the end. My disappointment is immeasurable.
First of all you need to have read a ton of novels and a variety of genres or you will be completly lost. For example I have read 100+ web novels including quiet a few Chinese cultivation ones and the author still completly lost me when he started talking about murim (I have never even heard that word before apparently it refers to the cultivation genre). I didnt know any of the
words he used and half the time I had to guess whats going on. Other than that its really interesting to see all kinds of generes brought up in this story.
Watching the MC hunt protagonists while trying to twist the stories and exploit clichs is a lot of fun to read, but sometimes it feels like MC could just insta kill them but he wont because of reasons.
In general Fight scenes are very short because MC will have planned everything before which is fine but I kinda missed the usual final fight you often see.
he fights like a mid boss before the actual last boss and then the last boss just kind of dies of old age.
The whole protagonists/ will of the world system is never clearly explained but it kinda seems like MC knows whats going on while we are left in the dark which is frustrating.
The MCs behavior is really frustrating and does not make any sense. For example he has to fight a guy on earth in 6 months so what does he do? He trains on earth for 6 months with little progress instead of doing what the title says and hunting protagonists to get stronger. He just spends too much time on earth in general in my opinion.
of cause everyone loves MC but MC wont give them an answer cause he might die trying to save his friend from hell gate. So the story ends with him disappearing after hell gate and they might or might not meet again.
first time loop is with the school and trial tower is complete nonsense because MC can only hunt the ghosts when maela or whatever wrote the diary but she only writes the diary cause MC doesnt die against the ghost and continues hunting after. 2nd time travel with the scifi protagonist MC cant kill him because of paradox but after 2 year time travel its somehow fine to kill them.
The novel has an interesting premise, but the execution is lacking. The author is a master of the art of lazy writing. What is lazy writing? Its when the MC pulls things out of his ass when he needs them without the reader having any knowledge of said object being up the MCs ass. The author does nothing to explain the MCs backstory to leave plenty of space for himself to tack things on at will.
Oh, the MC is a F-rank hunter, the weakest of all hunters, but actually,
hunters arent weak at all even if they dont have superpowers because of technology, and the MC happens to be a master at using technology.
Oh, by the way, theres this amazing gate thing that has an extremely low survival rate, but the MC lived through it and only the strongest hunters know about that because the knowledge is top secret.
Oh, did I mention the MC picked up magic while doing a mission? No, I didnt? Well, he did. And then he used it like hes been using it for years.
The author likes to expound on the MCs patience. An F-rank hunter hunts by being patient! He spends hours hunting a rank F, days hunting a rank E, up to a month hunting a rank D! So, as a reader, youre stuck wondering what about rank A or S because he apparently hunted those too. Did he spend years doing that? How? Hes only been a hunter for 15 years. With travel times and the time he spent in that gate, how many monsters has he actually killed? The author writes a lot of ideas he thinks are good, but he doesnt plan them out before writing them.
However, despite the lazy writing, the novel is pretty interesting. Theres a few problems with the translation switching between third and first person every other sentence in some chapters, but if you read a lot of mtl, you wont even notice a thing. The way the MC executes his plans are pretty smart. Its not, swing big sword, monster dies. He actually uses his brain, which cant be said for a lot of novels.
Unfortunately, the author is a fan of tell not show, where he tells you what happens instead of showing you. Hell tell you the MC learned magic, but wont show you how. Hell tell you the MC fixed some magic circles, but wont show you how. Hell tell you the MC killed a monster, but he wont show you how. The fights are severely lacking description. His sword style was like a dance. Okay. How was it like a dance? The author doesnt show it. I wouldnt be surprised if this is the first novel the author has ever written.
Good idea, bad writing, 3/5. Im caught up on the current chapter (c51), and Ill likely continue reading it. Its not terrible, but its not great.
Honestly, this is a Korean novel which in my opinion is not bad, but there is something I really hate about the MC personality, namely the nature of sharing his OP skills with others without strings attached, instead he aims to do that to everyone on earth that makes me feel like throwing up, MCs goal that I just realized in chapter 42, is that he wants to spread OP magic and sword arts that he got from other worlds to earth without asking for anything in return, he wants
to teach everyone on earth to be able to do magic and OP Sword art for free, I feel the MC just wants to make a riot on Earth with his s*upid nature, I really hate this s*upid MC, I feel like Ive wasted time reading this novel
I love antihero protagonists. This protagonist is an antihero protagonist. While hes not the most unique protagonist, being another F-Class hunter that needs to bet his all to succeed, its written very well so far. Somewhere between 4-5*?
Interesting premise in that the MC has to hunt other protagonists. However, the novel is crippled by its inability to properly incorporate power creep. All the benefits and abilities that the MC receives feel inconsequential and left by the wayside and oftentimes he can clear missions without relying on his newfound abilities at all. The MC is more intellectual than your average protagonist but even he makes questionable choices here and there which leave you scratching your head.
The fact that the abilities MC acquires from other worlds are inconsequential make
the journeys themselves feel inconsequential. Its not very satisfying either when the MC has to work tooth and nail for every inch of profit where other people from his world are well beyond the MC without ever having had to lift a finger. It feels lazy and unmotivated.
I am bored because of repetitive nature of this novel. My this comment shouldnt be percepted as bad comment. This novel is way better than other korean style of dungeons came to earth, hunters started to appear etc.
This novel is kind of valuable for its content which MC is hunting protagonists. Most litrpg/reincarnation/isekai or other similar genre novels protagonists are cheaters. They portrayed as heroes but they are lazy cheaters stealing other characters achiviements or labor then walking around with harem which most of time consist of s*aves.
But this novels down side is that it is repetitive and started to bore. Except the hunting parts -which later became repetitive as I said and hunting parts also became boring, story is boring, cliche as other novels so we can say this novel is contradict with itself. MC shouldnt became a protagonist but he is!
I would like it if this novel has no story but MC hunting protagonist. No guild creating, no harem, no F rank hunter became populer, no no no. Just travel a world, hunt a protagonist in couple of chapters then continue. This could be real fun and wouldnt contradict with itself or repetitive.
Therefore, just read first 60 chapters then drop it. This novel could go hundreds or maybe thousand chapter but it wont worth it. First 50-60 fine.
For the early hunts, it was good. Instead of overwhelming power or something he actually used his brain and hunted the protagonists in a clever way. But it went sh*t after the returnee arc. It became your typical kr novel after that.
I think it went downhill. The best part about it for me was him visiting new worlds, learning magic and swordsmanship, but after that, it just didnt happen as often. Also, would be nice if him being a 15-year-old veteran wasnt mentioned so often. Feels like the author points it out in every chapter. The power ranking also feels weird. Apparently, he can
before, just because hes smart and experienced? How does that make sense? It feels like he should be the protagonist at this point. But even though it has some plot holes and gets a bit boring later on, its still worth the read in my opinion. Especially for the different worlds he travels to, I found that really interesting.
From korean stories cliches with gaming system, reincarnated shoujo or villain, and ofcourse the generic isekai-ed japanese guy. It lets us see a different side of these stories and enjoy how the MC makes use of any loophole or strategy to hunt the protagonists. And I dont think I can...more>
look at fantasy stories MC the same after reading this.
MC is also really likeable. Smart, resourceful, and eventhough hes not that much of an OP, he knows how to maximize his strengths. The romance or harem (?) is not that toxic, and MC isnt dense either.
I get it, its a trending topic but... ITS SUCH A HUGE CURVEBALL! hahaha
And my personal favorite arc is the generic isekai-ed japanese guy story. Oh my god that was so satisfying! Seeing how the MC tr*shed this genre and the protagonist that are usually so full of plot holes and s*upid logic (ie why are male adventurers fully armored while the girls are wearing skimpy ones)
Maybe the best Korean new series I have read this year (released recently). It makes fun (and the MC hunts them) of many other cliche protagonist stereotypes like regression/reincarnation/harem seeking etc. The MC starts off as a 15 year F class veteran who uses technology and experience to fight higher level protagonists and monsters. Many Korean series start off strong and deteriorate fast, I hope that doesnt happen for this one, 5 stars for now.
world traveller skill, so he can go to other worlds and do quests
MC is experienced, mentally mature, and clever, but not some kind of crazy cold psycho, nor perverted. Just a dude who experienced too much too long. The way he solves problems is well thought, its not always brute force, but a clever use of his experiences.
The idea is very interesting, it kinda reminds of the old show
for the setup, cliches for once are here for a reason, and Im really curious on where this is going, with the mysterious background set up.
All characters are more or less developed, at least a little.
There is hints of subtle romance, it looks good.
New spin on the typical isekai/op chars novel where a player goes back in time or is reincarnated into another world. Dont let the 3 star rating deter you from giving this novel a try, its got cliches, and its niches but its still a decent read. The reason for the low score is because the MC in this novel is the Protagonist hunter and most readers love to self insert into one of those characters.
The MC hunts protagonists in various worlds and dimensions because they break the natural balance
of life, every successful hunt, he gets to live a bit longer and steal their skill (s). The writer makes some great points at how annoying it is when some useless nobody comes along and steals other peoples hard work and research after going back in time or being sent to another world with plot shield and OP skills.
Id rate this around a 4~, its got flaws, but its different than most of the kr novels here with a smart MC, plus you get to be on the other side of the protagonists POV and get to realize how much of a scum they are.
Aha. I see a lot of reviews here that state problems before actually getting anywhere. In my opinion, I think the novel is pretty damn good. And to address the issue of the MC losing his common sense or whatnot, the author actually discusses that in the novel itself. Unfortunately for the other readers, they didnt get that far.
Its all character development baby. He WAS ruthless. He WAS cold-hearted. He WAS someone who had nothing to lose. But as the story progresses, the MC discovers more about himself, and more
about the others around him. He learns to live. He learns to embrace his existence, and he learns about power beyond strength and combat. Love, Friendship, Hope, Empathy, whatever. He discovers them all. Travelling through worlds, living life in his world, the MC develops greater than what he was at the start. He forms a connection to the world which binds him to reality. He no longer resigns himself to death, because hes discovered something greater than himself. And he learns to live for it. Now if you can call that being mindless. Then I dont know.
Now we got that out of the way, lets talk about the actual novel itself. Its pretty damn interesting, travelling through different worlds and killing protagonists, fun stuff. Though theres a lot of talk about probability, space-time, SF blah blah, it really does get you thinking and speculating, which is a sign that youve become immersed into the novel. Thats a plus sign. And the blend of his world and travelling to other worlds is pretty well done. Never feels like hes away from one aspect for too long, and the author does a good job of reasonably pulling him in and out of every world so the story continues to flow smoothly.
As for the action and combat. Its decent. Not something I really prioritized in this novel, but its good to see the MC kick ass from time to time. And his power is never unreasonable in my opinion. What the MC lacks for in strength, he makes up for with great wit and strategy. But as the novel progresses, the MCs options open up a little more and can brute strength certain missions need be. The characters apart from the MC are good too. I can really only recall the girls in the story, but theyre all very cute and unique so who cares about the random dudes. The harem members all love the MC for different reasons, and are able to show their affection to him and devote themselves in different ways. I for one, love them all :) I can see this ending in a true harem fashion, wouldnt make sense for it not too considering how attached and devoted every girl is to the MC (also something my inner degenerate is wishing for hehe).
For me personally, Ive genuinely enjoyed reading this novel, and look forward to every release. As for the future translated chapters of this novel? I dont know. Maybe its a downhill from where Ive read up to. Maybe this is the peak. But as for right now currently? I definitely recommend this as a read.
To people saying it is clinche, it is supposed to be clinche. MC goes to other worlds and kill protagonists that you have read about in many novels like the typical korean MC, chinese wuxia MC, dungeon MC.
His power up is not slow, its just that other protagonists are too powerful. They can destroy worlds, if MC gains a perk of perfect sword genius, or more mana of course he cant fight against them.
MC is not your typical MC. He is a genius. Before the system
he was really weak but he survived the dungeons because of his sharp mind, it was almost like a miracle. When he later gains new abilities he utilises them in a very good way.
MC is hella smart. When he goes to hunt protagonists he doesnt defeat them by using force but somehiw turns the whole world against them by clever schemes.
I had to rewrite this review because clicking on another tab somehow deletes my entire draft, so Im a little pissed and this is going to be a tad short.
However, MC is not dependent on his new skill stealing abilities. His long life experience is the main selling point, even to those around him. As stated by a character, his monstrous protag stolen skills are just a fraction of his power. His true power comes from the 15 years
of hunting experience. That alone was enough to relieve much of the cliche for me.
Upon reading further, Ive realized that this is extremely exciting to read. Theres so many different kinds of protagonist tropes that our MC will fight, and the ways hes beaten a few of them already are truly fascinating. What a genius MC is. Some methods are little simple, but all are very satisfying. I simply cannot wait for more.
The main plus side of this story are definitely MC hunting the protagonist arcs. Those are the main arcs of the story, each time MC visiting new world and having to manurer around its setting and finding a creative way to get the protagonist killed.
However the main world in which MC lives and everything that has to do with it is total garbage. When MC hunts protagonist, the cliches are deconstructed and its pointed out how little sense a lot of developments in novel make and how in those novels everything always goes protagonists way.
Its really difficult to make myself read the main world storyline where we see all those cliches happening to MC of this novel. There are a lot of parts that make no sense and power system is an absolute mess even without MC gaining powers from other worlds.
But goddamn I love this novel so much. The concept is great, I love antiheroes, and I love the cliche breaking. I only wish that we could get a translation that isnt a slightly polished MTl.
This novel is about a man that is about to die because of unknown disease but suddenly he get a system to kill protagonist (for your information not all protaganist is a good guy)
Great start and premise but became tr*sh midway. The dimensional traveler thing was a good spice but author was incapable of making use of it efficiently without making it seem like him just liking something and then adding it on to the story. My favorite parts are the side quests he did and didnt really care for what happens in his world. I expected too much from it hence the 2 stars.
Was doing actually quite well until the hack who vomits this out started breaking its own world rules. After 2 separate arcs of protagonist clichs being applied to their protagonist hunter which doesnt get clichs the whole world is just ruined. Hack ran out of materials and just started writing mediocre clichs into their world. Complete and utter garbage now.
