It was very depressing and Grimdark, I felt really unwell, and it may trigger panic attacks if you are vulnerable to excessive thoughts of your own mortality.

It's easier to just watch this summary, spoilers fyi:

For something more light heartedly stupid and less dark.

Some outside therapy:

December 1 2022 review.

As of doing this rating 38% are at 1/10. Most of the comments are understandable at an earlier state of this webtoon. I started reading this earlier in the week and I can tell you........

Up to chapter 20 the earlier ratings make sense. I don't know what the authors original plan was for the plot but things change. If you're patient and can read through it things make sense.

Chapter 61, 62, 63 & 64 for those of you that left this series and want to see what I'm talking about.

This is an interesting premise. What seemed at first to be a mass product of revenge return make a comeback to be an awesome story . Since most of people here haven't read till the plot changing point, the rating is clearly low.

Turn out, those main character you think isn't the real main character. The Sword hero was made/manipulated into the cold blood evil for a period of times, it not just a emo deppresed kid getting know the cruel world. It doesn't justify his behavior, still it doesn't need to be as he wasn't the main character.

As for the real main character, just one phrase could analyse him: "a broken clock". He's the guy who have overcame all tragic and sacrifice it all, for a the humanity and for the world. His love, friendship, moral and even his life was meant to be sacrifice. What's more impotant? dozen million innocent people plus every thing precious in your life, or the future of the humanity.
With our main character, he chose the second.

This story was never about and emo kid lost every thing and went nuts.
It's about how much can a person can sacrifice. For everything around him.

Stupid story development

This is an interesting premise developed in all the wrong ways. What seemed at first an original twist on the isekai genre, portraying the cruel reality of a stranded hero with nothing to return to, quickly turned into the stupidest plot ever. Motivations are too dumb and we’re eventually faced with a nearly mass production of “returned heroes” that has been happening throughout history, rendering pointless the initial premise.
This is the kind of story that makes you wish there was a zero or a negative rating.

Slow start but engaging

Rating: 7.0  / 10.0
At last an (edgy) revenge fantasy series that doesn't border hentai. It might be me having a soft spot for time travel elements, but I think it's very promising.... Unless the author slows the pace at which the series is advancing or starts talking gibberish about what the powers have behind them ...

Even though the premise is revenge driven, I don't think it'll be the main theme. It'll probably go about pitting different themed heroes against each other while slowly unravelling what's happening and a bit of their backstory (I like how they show some key scenes and don't drag them out).

Up to now there has been lots of action and in a quite well drawn unique style. I dislike a bit the tints of nationalism exaltation the author throws with the navy and secret service ,but this was probably a contraposition to other series which inspired this one was (Korean series usually tend to dehumanise all the bad guys and anything related to the government) so its quite refreshing that this one doesn't.

The lance hero ¿MC? is a bit dumb (I guess it's just the author not grasping some simple reasoning the characters should make in these extreme circumstances or how most people have different reactions to fear) ,for example killing the first hero he sees without planning much, but all this stays on normal levels, considering there's a hero that can travel in time, he's probably set things up on his favour and other crazy influences that could be introduced later (this series is just starting).

He lashed out on the world by massacring innoncent people because he lost his mommy and daddy, who was killed by
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
his time-reversing deus-ex machina of an ally
and because life is too hard and people didn't want to help him, even though he has superpowers and has far more options than anybody else.

I continue to read this silly charade just to see his stupid face at the end when things are revealed to him.

It is fun and justified to see people kill others... so long as it does not involve me, my family(probably).

What happened to SH family is sad. It is depressing. Yet, that does not give him the right to take other's happiness. Other uninvolved people. However, it seems a LOT of people agree, sympathize, support and even justify his actions.
He could like a normal person, ask for help. Family and friends are not the only place to ask for help.

Basically, following the rationale given by the SH supports I cam eto the conclsion of the type of people we should support; and I mean support all their actions regardless of any harm to others.
(1)Let us start with Bullies. We should support them, and even encourage them so that they keep on making life miserable for others, before killing them.
(2) Terrorists- because they have big weapons.
(3) People who no longer have any one in their life due to unforeseen accidents( eg- natural disasters).
Let me be clear, following rationale provided by the SH and his supporters; for (3) we should allow, and even encourage them to kill every single being alive. That includes the supporters and their family too, probably. They are not to be provided help or counselling, weapons and a killing spree is the answer. All should be according to what their guide the SH said- if I'm sad then everyone else should be sad too.
