Lol this story isn't really good... it's just a depiction of the ultimate fantasies of many male gamers.

Alright, granted, this story is unique in a very typical way. Who wouldn't want to reincarnate in a "fantasy" world where you have an advantage that everyone don't? The premise of the story is very rare in any type of media since it's complex to formulate an intrigue storyline out of it.

The main character, who is a goblin incarnated, has a very very haxed based power once you listen to his narration, which are aloooooot. In the most common term, he has the power of assimilation through consumption. Basically, eat this steel sword, your body will be steel like. Eat this magical stone and you can do magic. Eat guide book and you'll gain knowledge. Even godlike character don't have that kind of powers because the potential for such thing is unlimited.

Conflict... what conflict? There are zero conflict whatsoever beside inner struggles on doing the right thing which are heroic virtue. That is, don't kill for fun, don't pillage for the heck of it, don't rape other people because it's wrong.... and don't abuse your powers unless the other guys is worst than you. Meh, I hate stereotypical heroes. Ahem... the MC never loses a battle, but considering the world he in, if you lose a battle... it most like you will die or worse. Yes, there are more worst thing than death in a dark world. His powers constantly grow in a short span of time with great leap and bound. It will accelerated to absurd level very quickly. There are shit load of girls of various classes, but I don't seem to care for any of them. Their background was not told in depth. The same with the MC so the characterization seemed very shallow.

This is basically a Marty Stu story that the author want to stroke his own desire and ego of having power overwhelming and unlimited harem in a magical world where damsel in distress only at a walking distance.

Yep, that summed it up. Don't get me wrong, it's still a good story for pleasure read, but in all seriousness, it's nothing you haven't seen before. After a few first chapter with the awesome fantasy element featuring evolution chain and abilities, it gets old very quickly since none of the ability seemed to be touched on more than a honorable mentioned. I'm actually more interested in the world building aspect of it than the MC. He's just not that interesting at all, and the only reason he cared for human than his own race because the author wanted him to be relateable to us (humans), which actually seemed to contradict the small glimpses of his own background. Same reason for him being good even though it would be much better if he was a dark hero instead.

This works pretty well as a manga so far. The art is good, the pacing is appropriate and the story has potential. That said, I am not to certain about the story's future.

Spoiler (mouse over to view)
After reading the manga, I checked out the light novel...

Spoiler (mouse over to view)
The protagonist struck me as a mary sue.

He never loses a battle, he gained more powers than the X-Men combined, becomes richer than a small country and he gets a harem which he has sex with everyday. The main conflict has more to do with how he justifies his actions regarding killing, mind breaking and raping. Even this is not much of a conflict as there are no arguments, just internal monologues. Needless to say that this series is not for everyone.

The manga has made a good start but it has its work cut out for it if it wants to transcend the novel.

well, I like overpower MC and non-romance plot, so I like this manga. However, I violently hate the rape related, the older goblins' reaction to human women is extremely disgusting -"-
err, i changed my mind, this one is going to get the harem romance tag, i fed up with overpowered MC+harem+sexual actions

You may be right about his past life not being explained fully but in japan there isn't really a need for bulletproof vests because guns are next to nonexistent in japan. To get a gun license you have to take safety classes, pass a written exam, take a shooting test(sometimes), get a psychological evaluation, apply for a license, get a background check, and have a public survey done on you to see if people would trust you with a gun. you have to do all of this every 3 years if you want a gun in japan. (not to mention the fees)
^that is why he was stabbed by a special knife and not shot. how was he to know that someone might try to murder him in the future?

When a manga needs too much narrating, something is amiss. And this manga is completely driven by narration.

The MC just gain skills and powers for no particular reason or use. There is no character growth.

His background was briefly shown but never ventured upon. His base power seems to be just a convenience thing And not really thought through "yeah I was modified to gain powers by eating"... If he'd eaten a Kevlar vest, this manga would not even have to start because he wouldn't have died then..

Nah, might as well skip this one.

4 chapters, in just 4 chapters this manga became one of my favorites in 2014. it introduces many interesting and exciting concepts, while the concepts may not be original but the combination of them makes it something we never seen before.

The protagonist is reborn as a goblin and is required to survive with almost no help, he is likable and there is more to him than your usual shounen guy, there is a room for huge character development for each of the main characters introduced.

The idea of gaining a new abilities rapidly is exciting but the huge number of them can be overwhelming and forgotten by the time the next chapter arrives, thankfully the important ones are engulfed in your mind.

The most interesting concept by far is ranking up, ranking from goblin to alternate more advanced creature, and by having more than one route it really opens a way for readers to guess which one he would take.

Overall this is my first impression of the manga and I very pleased by it, as it is rare to find something exciting these days for me.

This manga really surprised me, i mean i did see a high rating and good reviews but i was still pretty skeptical of it but after the first chapter you become really curious where its going then you get hooked. I love the premise of "ranking up" or evolving and the RPG style of this manga. Also once i learned this concept is when i understood what the title pic was and it made me really look forward to when it happens and beyond. I really have high hopes for this now and i really hope im not let down

its not everyday u come across a manga that stands out. its similar to the "gamer" another great read in terms of its game/reality concept but its core stories are completely different but what makes them even more similar than the game/reality concept is watching the MC's progress throughout the story what new abilities he obtains and the curiosity of how powerful will he get.

This manga get my MOAR!!!! SEAL of approval...

I highly recommend this manga. its a really great and refreshing read. sadly its only up to the 4th chapter but I've read the LN up to the 38th day and if the manga truly follows the LN than you can expect some epic battles, new enemies, a ton of new and powerful abilities and a lot of change within the goblin community but if you cant wait for the next chapter i suggest you read the LN

This series takes the idea of resurrection, which has been done many times over, and puts it into a fresh and new perspective. In the age of regurgitated shounen series and more often than not lack of creativity, this series is a nice change in pace. I am eager to know what comes next in the story. I recommend this series to those seeking to read an interesting series.
