Fighting fighting fighting  
by Kevadu
December 10th, 2016, 8:18pm
Rating: N/A
This novel is like 90% fighting, for better or worse. As soon as one battle is finished they immediately get dragged into another with little chance for resting. Don't expect a lot of slice-of-life antics here. On the plus side the fights are always tense. No OP protagonist here either. While they do level up and become stronger they keep fighting against stronger and stronger enemies too so it never feels like an easy victory.

An earlier review criticized the existence of the 'white room' for being too convenient, but frankly if they didn't have it they would have all gone crazy from stress by now. I feel that this novel does a better job than most of depicting ordinary people being thrust into an insane situation. That white room is their sole respite. It's also part of the setting that is established from the beginning and it's used intelligently so it doesn't exactly feel like a deus ex machina. It's different but I can't hate this novel for that.

There are some things I don't like, though. The harem developments feel much too rushed and unnatural. There is at least a plausible (though dark) explanation for why there are so many more female than male survivors
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
The orcs kept them alive to rape them.
but then consider how every single member of the protagonists harem just happened to be saved in the nick of time and is still 'pure'. Of course. Nobody wants used goods after all. (That was sarcasm, please don't kill me) But wait, if all these people were saved in time then how come none of *them* were male? Pay no attention to that, the novel demands a harem.

The author spends seemingly forever building up how awful of a person the guy who who bullied the protagonist is. To a frankly totally implausible degree. No matter how rich and well-connected his dad supposedly is there is stuff in those bullying stories that nobody would have gotten away with in any civilized society. I don't care if his dad is the chairman of the school or whatever. School chairmen are not gods.

Naturally this asshole is one of the survivors and starts playing king of the mountain in the new world which is when things start getting *really* weird. This guy is supposed to be smart but upon being transported to another world his main priority seems to be killing anyone who doesn't follow him rather than, I don't know, fighting the orcs. Lord of the flies shit can happen of course but when you are faced with a very real external threat with no clue of exactly how strong it is maybe that shouldn't be your top priority.

I was groaning throughout that whole arc but it actually ended mercifully quickly. To the point where I kind of wonder why the author spent so much time building it up in the first place.

But in the end I would rate this story as better than most web novels. Which is not to say that it's perfect or anything because there are certainly flaws, but I'm kind of shocked by how many 1s it's gotten when people seem happy to give 10s to some utter drivel out there. The fights themselves are interesting a well-described, there is actual tension (instead of just being a power fantasy) and most of the characters are at least decently interesting.

This is a great LN

Dont get me wrong the point that people give below is all acceptable but from my point of view, the author did a good job in making character's personality, describing their internal conflict and providing enough support to the plot that doesnt make the fight too fake :SPOILER
1st: the people there are only student.No matter how smart they are,the chance of them surviving against powerful orc while making no mistake or doing it calmly like a SWAT soldier is non-existent.That is why the white room is needed to at least stabilize their mentality and give information.Without that, those student being able to survive in that harsh world is even more unbelievable.I think the only problem is the time limit. It should only allow people to stay in there for 1~2 hour, not forever.
2:That school is shown to mostly accept problem or unneeded children, not some normal student so people with special mentality is nothing weird and thanks to that, they are able to survive,And the MC choice and mentality progress seem fine to me.He wanted to help other and what he gets in return is betrayal so it is normal that he doesnt trust anyone.He also know that his physical ability is low so he chose summoning and support which allow him to fight alone while not fighting directly.The girl show him the greatest sincerity even in life and death situation so he accept her .People dislike this and call his resolve earlier fake but i think that is normal.Human always want someone to love and care for them, those who will stand by their side even in life and death situation, especially for the oppressed and endangered one.Not to mention the MC original personality is kind and just (if not he wouldnt have helped the bullied one and become bullied) so it is just him returning to his origin.
If you want a perfect and badass MC which can do everything by himself , this isnt novel for you.The MC is only a student with strong heart and mentality, not some super soldier that is trained to be perfect in everything.He has his tons of weakness that need to be covered by his companion but i think that this is what make him humane and make the novel worth reading.

A forth-rate series  
by Estranger
March 30th, 2016, 1:32pm
Rating: 1.0 / 10.0
After reading the first volume, a 1 is the best rating I can give it. There are plenty of parts of the story that are obviously poorly thought of. However, I will only talk about the worst idea this spewed out: the White Room.
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
Here is a list of traits of the White Room:
1. A person immediately enters the Room upon leveling up.
2. Within a party, if a single person levels up, the entire party may enter the Room.
3. While a person is in the Room, time in reality is frozen.
4. There is one desk & computer in the Room for each individual in the Room. The said computer may be used to rank up skills or ask various questions about the skills and world's system.
 
First, this Room, with the combination of the traits 1-3, completely ruins the tension of all of the fights with the possibility of leveling up in the middle of an emergency. Due to the Room's ability to stop time, the party can have a conference to make plans, making the emergency no longer an emergency in many cases. In fact, Gaya's party entered the white room in both of the two emergencies in volume 1.
 
Second, with the 3rd and 4th traits, they have all time they need to learn and consider which skills to choose. This cuts off most of the experimentation of skills, eliminates the time and effort that would be spent training skills, and removes all of the risk of choosing useless skills during the situation.

Why I like this series:

Rating: 9.0 / 10.0
Hey there buddy,
there are some spoilers, so if you don’t want to see them, just skip to the conclusion at the end. But my comment will be made based from what I read on the first arc, so in the future if the series change a lot I may also update my comment.

I agree that the start is, indeed kind of misleading or confusing for some, but if you read a bit more, the first arc for example (Around chapter 14), you will find that this series is really good.

Spoiler (mouse over to view)
Well, our main character has several issues with trust because when he saved a bullied guy from the bullies and became the new target, the saved guy betrayed him and within time even started to bully him too. Therefore our MC decided to never trust anyone again. The bullying was so bad that he decided to kill the main bully, the son of the school (which is private) owner. So he makes some traps and lures the guy to the trap, but instead of the guy, what he found dead at the trap is a monster. By killing the monster, he leveled up and can choose skills to allocate the points.

He decides to get summon and support magic. Doing this, he can summon a monster and use support magic in it or something of the sort (he can also use support on himself). But when he is going to kill his third monster, he discovers that it is actually running after a girl. The girl realizes what he is trying to do an act as bait, so he ended up saving her and leveled up again. But he can’t leave it and decide what to do later, every time he level up, time stops and he can choose the skill to allocate the points. He find out that he can only level up one of his two skills on get a new one. As he doesn’t want to be a jack of all trades but master of none, he decides to level up one of his two skills.

He have to think a lot, because if he level supporting skill it will be difficult to level up alone, but if he level summon, it might be ok to level by himself. But what if he end up in a fight with a stronger monster? For example a dragon or something like it. Which one will most likely keep him alive? If the girl he saved is willing to cooperate, choosing support skill is the best choice, but what if she is not? In the end he gets to the conclusion that even if she ends up betraying him, choosing the support skill will grant him the most survivability. He makes his choice based on his analysis of her behavior and his fights so far (she managed to maintain her calmness and think rationally in such a situation and even acted as bait, so she will most likely make a rational decision). – This paragraph was just to explain the misunderstanding of Demize (the other guy that commented)

The game elements are also not exaggerated, which (for me) is a good thing. The monsters disappear and drop items, but only what they were holding, for example a sword or spear, and sometimes as a small gem (money?) will appear/drop (don’t know in the future if more things will drop). There is no screen, hp bar, mp bar or stuff alike appearing. When they go to the white room (when time stops), they can allocate points in a computer, lol.




Conclusion:
This series has a somehow slow start and it get better at the end of the first arc. The MC is smart and always tries to analyse things rationally and make smart decisions. He has no problems with obeying the female he saved if she makes a better plan or decision. The romance is really good (Within time he loses his fear of being betrayed towards her), for a series that don’t have romance as the main genre, it is quite good. The game elements are not exaggerated and the main character is not overpowered from the start, he level up and slowly gets stronger.

Fail to see more into the future

Just as the description tell us, our Mc at the beggining is given the choice of picking any skill in his 'skill list' and its not specifically restricted to support or summon, but with only 1 lvl he gets only 2 skill points so he picks support AND summon magic at the beggining.

It all sounds great but then its revealed that our MC got betrayed(read it to find out how) and decided to never trust in people again, while he was leveling he comes upon an orc trying to rape a girl, the girl being smart after spoting our MC starts acting as a bait to keep orc attention, after some *woosh wiiish* action with a bamboo spear and his first summon an crow our Mc kills his 3rd orc and gets a 2nd lvl up but this time he finds a low down on the skill lvl up system, when you wish to lvl up a skill from 0 to 1 only uses 1 point but from 1 to 2 uses 2 skill points ergo he cant lvl up both abilities...

Faced with this our Mc ask about the next skill from summon and its told he gets a wood golem and its said 2 of them are the equivalent of 1 orc, but he can also use his first support magics on them and he got like 4 support skills from lvl 1 support, so his golems would be nice like that...but here comes our Mc main stupidness, he thinks that if there are orcs there would be even stronger creatures, indeed its possible but what made me laugh my ass is that he pictures himself going agains a dragon with his mother fkin LVL 2 wood golems...seriously...GOLEMS LVL 2 all MMORPG players get this right? Only an idiot would fight such a creature being way low lvl and with such LOW LVL SKILLS. *ahem* back to topic, so our 'smart' MC starts going round and round about should he trust in that girl because she was smart to act as a bait til our Mc attacked the orc, in the end he decides to trust magically and picks support magic...what are the benefits of lvl it up? Easy whats only revealed was that his 4 buffs will gain more active time ergo at Lv1 their duration was 20min and at Lv2 it will be 40...maybe he got even better skills and their buffs give a bit more of benefit but he never bothered to think about higher tier summons...so yeah...our Mc picked support magic and summon became unknown because figthing a dragon with lv2 summons was a bad joke...

O yeah i forgot to say when summoning he have no limit to summon his 'familiar' but each time he do it again the next summon will require ×2 the Mp used before ergo 1crow=1mp next crow will consume 2 and next 4etc...

Well i liked how the Mc was at the beggining but after reading the 6 chapter were he talks with the girl he saved and states that he will help her in order to have mutual help it made me flip my table and say no thanks bye....
