Starts out decent but becomes bad fanfiction   
Rating: 2.0 / 10.0

I've read the novels and since this stays fairly close to those I'll give a similar review.

This story starts out alright but proceeds to try and rationalize a character so OP that within 9 months of being born he's become the most powerful being on the planet and has become so physically powerful the author claims simply moving him arms to examine himself after evolving causes typhoons that shatter stone walls around him. Until he "learns" the "right way" to move immediately afterwards so we can just ignore that part of how awesome he is.

He practices slavery and is loved for it.

He murders and eats everything around him if he has even the slightest justification for it.

He is a skilled warrior, smith, leather worker, seamstress, cook, strategist, leader and everything else you can think of.

He gets a harem of women who don't get jealous of each other because he creates tentacle orgies and has children that also grow into powerful and intelligent warriors within months unrealistically.

I can go on, and on, and on about how bad this story is. It's kind of entertaining to read if you literally do not think about ANYTHING but what is immediately happening and ignore any kind of logic or consistency I guess, but that's about all the good I can say about it.

He is basically a Black Hole Gary Stu and this story is a bad fanfiction of the escapist "born into another world" fantasy.

A "reincarnation" story but this time it a goblin, sounded different and nice at first but quickly became a "story" about wish-fulfillment and an overpowered MC. It's hard to say that it has a story, it feels like youre just watching someone level grind and fill out their pokedex.

ReMonster started out ok, it was a bit boring but it moved along at a decent pace and the development of the civilisation was interesting. The protagonist got rid of the goblin's rape camp and life generally improved for them. Then within literally three issues it descends into harem group sex and the main character capturing humanoids to turn into drugged up sex slaves to be raped. Apart from being generally repellent it comes entirely out of left field as the MC has spent a big chunk of time removing that system. Its also at this point you realise every issue is the same story but at a slightly higher power scale. Pity, it could have been good.

There's not much plot going on, the main character keeps repeating the same thing over and over again. There's not any character growth at all (it's just rinse and repeat) and I personally find the diary style of writting a bit tiresome.

The Story of A Bandit Leader

That's it. That is what the story is all about. It's about how the MC rapes, plunders, and eats his way to the top. It's starts decently though (I've been reading up to volume 3 before I gave up).
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
The story starts as a typical reincarnation story. But not so typical is that he is reincarnated as a goblin. So the early story is how he train himself and his friends, how he uses his superior intelligence to fight superior enemies, and discover new skills. And then he become the leader of his people, and start building an army of mercenary. Now I don't have any problem with that, but I do have problem is rooting for a bad guy. Scratch that, EVIL guy. He would eat anything weaker than him (including humans of course) would imprison any female enemie (he eats all the male of course) and start drugging them before raping them. And minds you, he doesn't just attack his enemy, even if the opponent is not hostile, he would still attack them, because he want to eat them, or rape them.

So yeah, basically a story about a bandit leader. If you the kind of people who enjoy reading about strong people oppressing weak people and a lot of raping and sex, then yes this story is for you.

I'll make a thread on the forum, if you think I'm wrong then prove me wrong.

P.S. If you want to read further just google "re: monster wiki", they would have the story up to day. 400 or something.

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.

Hating on a Great Series

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.
