Have you ever met that one kid who's really into pretending?



That's the feeling I get from the main character. A delusional kid.

Sooo... I read ahead abit in the raws (ch 454, chapters are very short) and decided to drop it here. It simply lacks depth. There are 1 MC, 1 Adversery and 10+ ornament Girls that are only able to say "Hello". Storyline has many similarities to Dragon Ball. Logic and characterdevelopment is not supported by the writer. Regardless of the tags used here its a simple Shounen story even if the MC is 19 years old.

Spoiler (mouse over to view)
Okay I'm up to the latest ch on the raw for this book and so far there are a lot of things I hate that the author did tho I still like it since it's funny interesting and the MC is pretty badass and the dominating type of attitude and all but putting that aside the author is doing bull crap like seriously this dude is in the 21st century and he has a harem in real life with about 14 girls -__- and in the game with more than 20 the others are npc that you would never think they are npc.
The author sucks at character development and letting you get to know more about the characters. Like seriously you will barely remember the girls in his harem the only ones I mostly remember is the one's he already knock up (quite a lot :3) but they don't develop much character and when he goes in a party with them they wouldn't even do anything he would practically solo the whole thing and when they get to the boss sometimes they don't even get to watch the fight and he solos the boss later on it gets to the point when I believe that the system forces them to not even be able to help him. Next they TAKE THE GAME WAY TO SERIOUSLY!! You would believe that this game is like the most important thing in the world like the presidents of all the countries playing it (they use real countries from this world) would even start a war if you offend someone from the other country or something and try to assassinate you and they hardly have real world interaction later on in the story like how he was suppose to start going to university he only went like 4 times and then later on I never saw him go again. The system in the game is like a runaway no one controls the game and the stuff that happen and the way he acts you would think he's in the real world hes even a reincarnation -__- in the real world and the game. Later on something happen in the real world and he says he want's to get stronger, the dude went in the game and start looking for was to get stronger quickly... when I saw that I was like .___. seriously you almost got you and your harem kill in the real world and you say you wish to get stronger but go in a game to do it!! he changes a lot later on in the story from the cool cold guy and still kinda cool and cold to outsiders but he becomes like a runaway dick where he can't control his hormones any more and ravish like every girl Npc's and real. later on in the story I notice tho that the characters are starting to have a little development but I'll see where that goes.This doesn't give me the feeling like LMS but it's still fun to read and really funny also it's weird that a game that they take so seriously doesn't do like lms where they have tv reviews and stuff kinda like it's isolated to the game players only.

First take Ark stuff in a dash of Zhan Long and strip away 90% of the content that went toward character development and humor only to replace it with never ending amounts or fluff that primarily applauds how mysterious, cold, and amazing the MC is. Now remove anything resembling a respectable heroine in favor of a dozen or so examples of ornamental T&A that stare, sigh, and blush over how mysterious, cold, and amazing the MC is..... Feels like this series was written by a 14 year old virgin who gets picked on at school and suffers from Chuuni..... If there is one thing I like about the story it is that the MC is ready and willing to kill people that piss him off. Outside of that its better to go read Zahn Long or Ark.

A dude retired from his hit-man type job to lead a normal life. So his first day priority was to buy a game console so he can be shut-in hikomori who plays game all day long. Role-playing rogue/assassin profession, the job he supposedly left behind.

Seriously mister author?
