Eh, just eh

Here is a real review of the comic and the story.
Overall it is eh. 6/10

I was reading the blade of evolution and the story isn’t that great. Also despite the name the mc isn't a solo player, he has companions and stuff.

The good part about this comic is there is no seeking death, arrogant old men and cultivation thrown at your face every 20 seconds unlike most Chinese manhua and the artwork currently is great. The bad part the plot is pretty directionless for the first 40 something chapters.

The story is set in this alternate world not earth bit similar to it. This world has monsters and gates and people go into these gates to kill monsters and stop them recking havoc in the real world.

The mc Zheng Ran is currently 19/maybe 20 and is as generic as they come and a bit edgy sometimes.
He got an overpowerd sword after entering a dungeon and loosing all of his friends/guild. He also became an ‘awakend’ hunter (these hunters get higher ranked gates and their personality changes).
At first he wanted to know more about his mothers death but now currently he wants to complete the sky tower and know the truth about the world he is living in.

The characters are quite underdeveloped, the only character that has "character development" is the MC Zheng Ran, but it's just superficial 'I want to protect the weak and find out the truth about this world' and the mc becoming buff and getting a haircut, it's no better than solo Leveling. The side characters are a bit better, they aren’t fodder, some of them are more capable than the mc and they get some time to shine like the red haired guild leader and the vlogger. The problem is they don’t get any development. The writer spits out and introduces characters at a whim. Most of the characters don't get time to breathe and it shows, you can't really connect with any of them because they all don't really get any development/quirks that make them interesting.

There are quite a lot of interesting stuff that doesn't get any development, like the purple hat trader who is pretty interesting imo or the whole dungeon/gate vloging stuff. Or the whole guilds in general. A lot of stuff just ends up getting built up only to be forgotten by the writer.

The author currently treats villains as fodder where most of the guys who are against the mc die, due to random shit happening not even really due to the mc himself.

The villains have quite simplistic goals, there was this hot nerd teen chick bad guy who wanted to kill the mc because his brother died in the same dungeon in the beginning of the story. Then there is the buff brown haired guild fucker with -100 iq points who is mad that Zheng Ran humiliated one of his shitty underlings.

Then there is Wang Feng the resident edgelord who thinks that hunters are the embodiment of evil and enjoys being unhinged and killing people. He is the equivalent of an edgy dude who reads Carl Marx once and thinks he has found the theory on life. There is also the skytower and monsters, the monsters are pretty much goons but some of them have intelligence, and some of them were humans in the past.

Then there is the huter accosiaton, the 'real big bad' at the moment. They were using the mc and hoping he would comply as they were the only people who had info on his mother's death. The hunter association/gov are also mutating humans with monsters for some reason. The project helped some people increase their strength or intelligence. They later fuck over the mc so hard he has to go into hiding and get new companions.

The whole family plot in the story is just eh, it a bit stupid and it was just thrown in try try and give the mc a superficial goal, might as well be filler. He first wanted to find out bout his mother's death but that gets revealed after the author kills the higher up association woman. Turns out the dad killed the mother after he went into the sky tower and became crazy.

Some of the people reading it find the story a bit confusing but it isn't, things like the power system are explained, but just soo poorly. The writing isn't that engaging some of the stuff side characters say aren't really needed, the author goes away to much into detail about things that don't matter and will be forgotten in seconds like the way the Egypt gate works. And there are sometimes just too much blobs of text that people just like to skim.
There is no real endgame there is no overarching plot at the moment other than maybe completing the sky tower and finding the truth about the world.

The artwork is great though, not so much at the beginning but currently it's great and it looks slick and cool as hell. I mainly read this a year ago and I decided to carry on reading it cos why not and the artwork improved so much, the characters used to look emotionless but now it looks a lot better.
The artwork at the begining wasn't that good but it was definetly unique compared to other comics, it gets better at around chapter 42 and then leapfrogs into really really nice at chapter 55. The artwork currently is some of the best artwork I have seen in a comic. The artist knows how to do photobashing, lighting and effects so well seriously great.

The story would have improved quite a bit if the dude just gave a bit more character development honestly. Currently the story is a bit better than at the beginning but it's still would just be better to reboot the whole comic.

Overall I'd give it a 6/10 when comparing it to other manhua and manwha.
4/10 for characters
2/10 world building
3/10 story
Before art improvement 6/10 (it isn't as generic as most Chinese manhua) Now 9.99/10
Action 6-7/10
Character design 6-7/10

nice art + shit story (even though it copied from solo leveling)
cliche Chinese story MC goes 'trash' to cool and heroic in one chapter. MC join lowest guild and makes it big and his mysterious mother
no explanation about the world or power system, just a ripped copy

Rip off

Wow, talk about a blatant rip off. Same setting, same char design, almost the same start, the "Solo" in the picture at the end of each chapter... amazing.
In any case, this is quite worse than it's original, even in story, character development and world building, areas in which Solo Leveling is quite bad already; so yeah, a terrible copy.
Only for those who like reading manhua/wa that have good art/action but care little for anything else other than a cool MC.

Cheap Chinese knock off

This is a cheap knock off of Solo Leveling warrior. it's definitely cheaper because the pacing sucks and the worldbuilding is nill. The protagonist goes from "trash" to one hit killing monsters and players almost instantly. with little difficulty and no reason or explanation. and while he acts "surprised" about this, he barehands against a much larger and, to his knowledge, stronger creature just for kicks; well before he knew about his getting stronger. so far no explanation for the dungeons and monsters in the modern setting
