Haven't read the novel, yet. But it's not like the manga is horrible. Imprisoning, robbing and etc is quite an orc'ish thing to do imo. And it's quite interesting, at which point did the protagonist lose his humanity? Furthermore it's been 20 chapters only, so idk what story or development some people here were expecting. It's kinda sad to see harem here though, but at least it's, again, quite the orc'ish thing to do. biggrin Hope this gets more interesting. Wint...khm.. War is coming.

A series with an interesting fantasy premise that went from being a potential favorite to the eventual trash. As with many light novels, the addition of an unrealistic, cringeworthy harem foreshadowed that Re:Monster wasn't long for this world. Sprinkle in a couple miraculous coincidences, a MC whose countless abilities make the world trivial around him, and the addition of drugging someone until they're begging for sex and you've got yourself a classic recipe for shit stew. In all honesty, Re:Monster is awful so do yourself a favor and find something decent to read.

FYI, Re:Monster's score is deceiving as it got most of it's 8-10s while only having a few chapters out. If you check the reviews, it quickly goes from a positive outlook on what this series could be to a long string of 1-5s.

good initial premise initially ruined by repetition and repulsive content

initially i was a big fan of the premise of this series. while not groundbreaking or thought-provoking whatsoever, it was interesting and fun.

however, having got 17 chapters in, my opinion has changed significantly for the worse. not only do i find the OP's later actions very distasteful and unpleasant (minor spoilers:
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
forcible sex slavery, drugging & rape)
, the story itself has become quite stale and boring.

also the story itself has very repetitive and predictable now, every chapter now is essentially the same, either
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
A. find new creature -> eat it -> gain more OP powers; or B. meet new group of enemies -> defeat them -> make them (sex) slaves (with or without drugging them) -> rape them. rinse and repeat.

i initially considered this series to be mere wish-fulfillment but now have reconsidered that this is essentially the author's (rather disturbing) rape fantasy, in the form of a manga.

reading through the 17 chapters i feel like reading encyclopedia or a diary. The protagonist encounter new creatures kill the eat it, over and over again. there're no plot, no mentality development, no emotion involved. i wonder why the mangaka choose to do the story this way, there is no point to this manga other than learning buch of creatures which i dont even want to remember.

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

Update: Honestly i still love this manga and the MC is one of my favorites, i love his do "whatever the hell i want" mentality. Plus how tactical and ruthless he can be. This is a pretty great RPG manga to me. I of course know its not for everyone considering its structure but its great still. People are complaining that it has no story cause it have a Diary type of walk-through in its chapters but thats just a different and interesting take on this manga.The most complaints i hear come people who are just too cynical from watching alot of other stuff to give this a true chance, or people who demand perfection or people who cant stand something doing something different. Just drop it already if its not your cup of tea instead of bashing it cause its obviously good with others.

I liked so far, i am kind of a sucker for stats, evolution, types and skills, and monster with different skills ( kind of resembles fire emblem and pokemon and other rpgs)

Did not like the magical playboy character at the beginning (as soon as i hear the word esper on a manga or anime that's it for me. i am fine with sage, wizzard or mage )

But as things switched to goblin world i found it interesting and different . Deep inside, i kind of know this probably will be one of those online rpg fantasies (that for me is the worst type of thing ever hahah hate hack and sword art, i like the animation but i can't get into it, the fake thing blocks my imagination and immersion on the history : P )

I will keep reading while they maintain the illusion of real, i expect the history/gameplay will evolve more, since now he has a good level to explore the world... if not it will be a shame : P

What story?

This reads like a horrible biography. While the setting made me interested at first, that interest was lost quickly enough when there was no development at all, just the guy powering up and enjoying his harem. Nothing noteworthy about any of the characters, but what bugs me the most is the uncompelling narrative.
I guess I have to agree with Immortal bearís endless rant, while itís still not the worst of such stories Iíve read so far, itís certainly somewhere down there.

Exactly what we wanted, a story about an over powered monster becoming god and ruling the world due to a cheat ability that he had before but still managed to die... Yeah I think it would be a great plot twist if goblin E or one of his lovers kills him out of jealousy just like in his previous life. smile

As far as the story itself goes, it's poorly written and has bad naming tastes. It Lacks development and has very little "story content" in it. It's simply a wish fulfillment story but so what, I kinda like it.

Given that this is a full-blown wish fulfillment kind of story, either jump on board if this is your shtick, or stay as far the fuck away from it with a ten-foot pole. Do give it a try if you really are that curious, because by all means, you yourself should be the one to determine whether or not you find it enjoyable. Always remember that for any series you're willing to give a shot at. Now, onward toward the issues at hand!

I love the sheer concept of having to work one's way up from the very bottom of a food chain, or some kind of power structure, all the way to the very top of it all. It's fun to watch the development of it overtime, seeing the different stages of said protagonist/character. Sun-ken Rock's a great example I read couple years back, and so I was really hoping that this would go in a similar direction.

After months of waiting around for the manga's chapter releases, I got impatient enough to see for myself what the original source's LN had to offer. Turns out that it's got some detailed violence and sex scenes going on, yet the manga version doesn't quite have that when it managed to catch up to those parts... Perhaps the mangakas cutting corners; perhaps he's doing it so that it could reach out to a wider audience based on the mag it's being published in. Either way, I simply want to point out how some of the juicy parts are being left out, and yet people praise it as a great power fantasy or "wish fulfillment at its finest." The light novel may just as well fit the bill for such praise, but this version's so far not living up to that. And as for the art........

Really good art. Girls are really cute.

So, the overall art's really good because the girls (who don't get to be shown all the time) are really cute? I'm sure this wasn't what you intended to mean, but the way you framed that sentence leads me to see it as that... ._____.

In all seriousness with the art, I can't seem to be engaged with its lackluster fight scenes. It's not exactly terrible, but it could definitely improve in quality: Re:monster's artwork compared to Gate's pretty good artwork and Berserk's SUPER HIGH QUALITY artwork.
Same can be said for the backgrounds; having seen many typical forest and cave backgrounds throughout many other fantasy series, I really don't find myself immersed. Immersion is a key factor that aids the entire "wish fulfillment" aspect for the reader, and when the art fails to deliver that part, the experience loses out on the potential it's holding. Again, look at great images like Berserk's, Gate's, and heck even the sci-fi Knight's of Sidonia's!!!
The character designs are fine to say the least. Goblins look like goblins, monsters look like monsters, harem girls look like harem girls, and some of the stock human enemies look like everything I could've possibly dreamed for.

great_k, I get a bit agitated hearing you say that this is a proper seinen manga, as it's been neutered of its own violence and sex featured in the original material. So I don't see this as a good adaptation to its LN, but for anyone who can still manage to dig it, I can at least understand why.

As people have already mentioned, this whole story is a giant wet dream for people unsatisfied with life. The narration and even art gets pretty terrible, and the world-building is inconsistent--we are not given the rules of this world; instead, the author seems to pull new stuff out of his butthole every time the situation calls for it.

The wish fulfillment is on point, though, I gotta say. The main character is worshiped as a god to these lower beings (goblins) but oh hey even though he was originally one of these lame goblins, he killed and leveled up! Great! He even has human females after him! Muy bien~! I can imagine people fapping to this as they experience their fantasies vicariously.

i can't blame them, but the author could have put in more effort to make this a GOOD wish fulfillment novel. But nah, it barely passes for a story.
