Novel disguised as a manga..

I want to point out two things. First, I am an easy to please individual when it comes to stories, especially isekai/reincarnation. Second, even if I gave it a five, I quite enjoy the story. The main reason I gave it a five, is because I feel this manga is a diary. As a sidenote.. man girls in these universe fall easily for his charm XD I think his skill for getting all the girls must be one of the most OP out of any manga/anime main character I can remember.

First of all I want to point out something: I do not dislike the story. I do not feel appalled by the rape content, mostly because it is not highlighted, not to mention it does not show or explain it, afar from some comical looking "sounds" that make you imagine some lewd stuff happen in the background. This is nothing like Berserk for example, where it made me skip ahead pages, just to not get unhappy by it.

So, the main and maybe even the only reason I gave it a 5, is because this does not feel like a manga. It is like a hybrid of a novel with manga, that lacks dialogue. The 99% of the scenes just have a dialogue box, which is the MC explaining What is happening in the scene we are looking at. Actual dialogue between characters is rare to the point I started making fun of the thought that this will ever become an anime, where a narrator would be the one mostly talking.

25 chapters in and I find it interesting, as just any other Isekai with a generalized story. I do not feel bored of it and I do not think currently I want to drop it, but my point stands. I just feel I am reading a novel, where there are pictures attached so you can help your imagination shape easier, while the dialogue of the people does not matter. If someone asked me what type of manga this was, my answer would be;

A diary.

This might be the most bland isekai i've ever read.

The story (if you can call it that) never goes anywhere meaningful, they just roam around a rather small area so the MC can eat things and get more powerful. Every chapter he gets a bunch of extra powers but you don't even need to read 99% of them, if it's important he will mention it in the very next panel.

This very much feels like a novel instead of a manga with the way it wants to painfully explain everything instead of you know, using the different medium to show. I also haven't seen so much narration since the chimera ant arc in HxH.

Honestly i only continued reading this until the end was because it reminded me so much of That Time I Got Reincarnated as a Slime, but failed to be anywhere near as good as that.

To sum it up this is a wet dream for the stereotypical chunni hikikomori otaku who lives in the mom's basement, no offense meant.

Its just bad, really bad, unless this is the kinda story thats up your alley.

Protagonist is basically a Mary Sue. His character lacks depth, no dimensions. Bland and dull.
Even his companions have a more colorful character than him despite not being in the limelight often. Thats not to say the secondary characters are fleshed out, they're still quite bad, maybe because theres too many of them. Moreover character development was given the superficial treatment which is disappointing.

World building is horrible too. Unoriginal and half baked. No effort was put into to create a fully developed living breathing world.

Storyline is haphazard while the plot so far is mediocre or aimless rather. Seems like its going with the go with the flow which is not how you create a story for readers. Overall shallow plot and does not engage the reader.

I'm open to varying themes in books, no matter if its cliche or morally sensitive and that goes for character alignments but over here, author is pushing character development and plot to specific directions just for the sake of having it like that. Theres not core agenda, motivation, driving force behind it all. Its frustrating to read.

In summary, absolutely no substance, a mile wide and barely ankle deep. Fanfics are notorious for being ridiculously bad and serves to stroke ones ego and self indulgence, this manga qualifies for that.

This is definitely something different from what I usually read, which is shoujo and smut. I'm usually a hater of harems, but in this one I found it fine since every women in his harem gets equal treatment which lessens the possibility of the reader having a "favorite". Overall, every chapter keeps me intrigued in how much further the mc can grow/evolve, build his village with various races, and raise his children (they are sooo cute!!).

I enjoy reading this manga and I love when new chapters come out for this series. Everyone preferences and opinions will be different, so you should give this manga a try. Personally, I put this within my top 5 reincarnation or isekai mangas.

While reading others reviews, I have to say something, the mc's girls do feel jealousy (their first orgy/time having sex was b/c of jealousy), he saved a group of human girls that were kidnapped from a group of older goblins (he let them either leave or redeem themselves), he doesn't kill humans just b/c he wants skills or to rape them (for ex. I believe a human army was threatening the elf community and he fought them and captured the remaining people from the army), and he usually just enslaves those that threatened/attacked his community.

The art is okay. Other than that, I've never read anything of lower quality. I've never seen a bigger Gary Stu. I've never seen a worse moral framework. On top of that, it's repetitive. I want to go on for paragraphs, but this review is already sounding comically negative. It's all been said.

Ups and downs

My third review of this series. It's basically your standard foodie/power hungry Isekai. Not bad. I don't feel isekai readers will care too much so long as the story is decent. It's all power fantasy and random episodic plots no matter which isekai you read. Yes, this guy is a monster, as the title says, but it doesn't deviate too much from the harem/power fantasy norms. Rou's troupe is somewhat related to his control abilities but they pretty much all genuinely respect him too.

One unique part is the family unit closest to Rou acts like an actual family. It's not just lovers giving hearts and kissing at random while sparkles and roses float around. No, they have actual discussions about family problems, whether they want kids, witty banter, etc. I've literally never seen that in any other isekai, so, major plus.

However, my review will still focus on a major issue with this novel adaptation.

It starts off faithful to the novel. Regardless of what you think of the novel's themes, in my book, a manga that veers off and does its own thing is problematic. And that's precisely what the Reincarnation: Monster manga adaptation does.

Let's just say what it is: Rou does a lot of rape stuff. Yeah, that doesn't happen in the novel. In the novel he is instead abhorred by the actions of the other goblins and does not partake. He does, however, admit this is the rule of this world and therefore he cannot interfere.

Those with power make the rules. At that point in the novel, he does not have power, so it makes complete sense. This is shown by the fact he never rapes nor allows rape in his troupe later in the novel (at least in the 600 odd chapters I read.) He stuck to his moral principles and I can respect that from both the character and author.

So, why does the manga do this? Who the hell knows. What I do know is the Mankaga must've gotten a smack upside the head, because, well, the manga is now once again faithful to the novel. So faithful in fact that it's reproducing small details that tended to be overlooked at the beginning of this serialization. So, if you can stomach or skip the early parts, then by chapter 50-60 the story is back on track and better than ever. For that I can still commend this work.

This manga is such a waste of art and context/concept.

At some moment in time you realize you're reading something similar to what an 8 year old child would write about becoming when he grows up. "I'm going to be the greatest baseball player, doctor, fireman/policeman and fire-breathing president of the country ever".

What is strange though is that this manga is most definitely not meant for children yet is so childish. I mean the MC is having orgies with the main female goblins together with the human women, who gladly sleep with him after the MC murdered all the men that accompanied them just a few days ago. Huh? (BTW, there is no explicit content it cuts short of that)

Like one of the translators early on who dropped it said: "This is chuuni sh!t".

Starts out decent but becomes bad fanfiction

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.
