More of a casual read

May contain spoilers(?)

As other commenters have mentioned, it does have a similar feel to Solo Leveling, and imo, this reminds me of both Solo Leveling and The Gamer. However, I welcome plots like this since I like this genre.

This was better as a casual read for me, since the plot can be a bit slow imo. I also wouldn't say it does a great job of world building either; the setting is planet earth, but the logic of how powers work, what limitations there are to a hunter's ability, the structure of dungeons, etc. is a bit lacking. For the novel, I'm not sure if it's written better, but I've heard it's decently a nice read, so it might go into more detail about the setting - assuming you can read Korean.

We know the MC is reincarnated, and seems to be able to use magic beyond what the world's god is willing to provide, since he's pulling knowledge from his past life. So far, the manhwa seems to be 80% exploring the MC's past knowledge and bringing it (with innovation) into his new life, and 20% showing the world the power he's re-created from his past life to obtain independency/possible domination. Although we know why he's able to use such OP magic, it does a whole "1,2, skip a few" type of thing, where the MC mentions he wants to try re-creating xxxx power, and then suddenly he's already using it in the next battle without explaining how in the world it even works. Despite this, I wouldn't say the plot isn't there, since the MC does have an end motive, but it's just a bit unclear how he will get there.

On a more positive note, it can be entertaining if you don't think too much about things, and just want to see a person be OP and inspire others/making them worship him (it's a feels good manhwa if you see it this way). If you like this type of stuff, this is another series to throw into your read list to try out, especially if you're a sucker for SL/TG type stories (but with less heavy plot). If you aren't into slow paced plots, mark this as a casual read.

Interesting start but mediocre later

Modern world turns into a fantasy sci-fi mmorpg. A few chosen get awakening with abilities, magic, stats akin to a rpg and have to fight against monsters that start spawning into our world. Our protagonist was a normal human however an incident cause him to suddenly recover memories of his live as a powerful mage from another fantasy world thus he also awakens. Using knowledge from his previous life combined with the current rpg system and also modern technology, he becomes stronger and gets notice by special organizations.

At first, i was pretty drawn in by the world building and premise but the manhwa just fell apart soon after. Its dull, boring, lacks structure and is ridiculous.

The protagonist is probably one of the most uninteresting main characters i've seen. I'm not expecting the extreme spectrum of dark or hero. The protagonist as a character is even more boring than a normal average joe person from a slice of life theme. It is that bad. Even the side characters have more color to them despite rarely being in the limelight.

As usual for stories with this theme, our MC is quite overpowered. Not complaining, i welcome it. However the most distinct disappointment is the lack of structure and limitations to the encompassing power system as well as the plot. I dunno how to explain it, its like a friggin 8 year old Chuunibyou wrote this manwha. All common sense, restrictions is thrown out the window, anything he likes dug out from his realm of creativity is thrown into the story haphazardly. Fighting a sorcerer beast in one moment while the next we get a Kardashev Scale Type II civilization(google it if you don't know what it means) battleship next then we get sentient life creation. Needless to say its a disaster as a whole. Plot and storyline, writing is simply unprofessional and don't gel well together. The concepts are not grounded and lacks a basis. Author is just throwing in random ingredients into the blender hence my 8 year old Chuunibyou reference.

Really disappointed by this one. Only redeeming thing is the art style and drawing. I expected greater things from reading the first few chapters like an appealing storyline, mature writing, structured storyboard, colorful characters and a solid MC to anchor the plot but unfortunately, we get NONE of those. Don't recommend this manwha unless you're an 8 year old chuuni.

The manhwa started okay. Later on it turns into absolute sh*t with no meaning in reading it.

Read something else than wasting your time with this sh*t story.

Art, story, MC, and plot are all sub-par compared to Solo Levelling, if I'm being honest. Just couldn't get into it, especially because you feel like the MC is just dragging you along and only explaining 20% of anything.

Somewhat good

Somewhat good and generic shounen manhwa, it's a sort of mix between "Solo leveling" and "World Trigger" and in many senses plays the middle part between those two series, this one has quite a bit of action but also has some strategy and team-building while not going too deep into any direction, it manages to have lots of action while maintaining some coherence in setting and story, or put in another way, it cares less than Solo Leveling on looking cool and being badass but is not as deep in the explanations as World Trigger, it's a fair compromise. Same for the art and flow of battles, it cares less for being flashy and over the top cool and more about "clarity" (probably not the best word), the battles are simpler than Solo leveling but easier to follow and understand, which I prefer, and again not as deep as the encounters in World trigger.
Story-wise, it's too soon to say much of the story but I don't really expect much from it, the MC is reincarnated after being killed by a dragon, gets stronger, companies fight for him and so on, I'm guessing he'll find the dragon at some point too. The main story development will probably go along the lines of delving into the mysterious system and the god behind it.
In any case, the fights are not bad, the art is good and the characters so far are good enough, somewhat interesting without going overboard with cliches and characterization. So yeah, decent, somewhat good, does nothing particularly well nor bad. If you like shounen give it a try.

I like it. It kinda feels like The Gamer but different at the same time. LOL His mom keeps asking when he's going to get married.. It's too early! Anyways, if you like The Gamer, and Legendary Moonlight Sculptor, I recommend this.
