I'll break with the haters here and highly recommend this.

Some people are ripping on the direction this has taken, but I'm all for it. If you're complaining, you're reading it wrong.

Davey is literally someone who goes at his own pace and does whatever he wants. He has his hobbies and obsessions and he doesn't care that the people of this world don't understand him. Their common sense doesn't apply to him, but that won't stop him from having his fun. He has his duties and responsibilities and he handles them well, exceeding all expectations. His out-of-the box methods are his key to success, but success alone is not the goal - it's all about the journey, so of course he'll only be applying his skills in ways that'll amuse himself. He's one of those people who'll casually enjoy himself as others take his nonsensical ways too seriously.

That's the problem some readers are having as well - they're trying to take it too seriously when it's really just all about having fun.

P.S. The art is also wonderful: the facial expressions are priceless.
If you're a meme collector, this is a gold mine for reaction images.

Was interesting till the author decided it would be fun to have a megathon or whatever robot introduced as a golem. I've pretty much lost interest in this one, I have no problem with mixing sci-fi and fantasy, but it has to be done carefully. Here, it seems as if the sci-fi part only applies to the MC that somehow knows how to make missiles, machine-guns, robots, thrusters and so on. Also, I usually don't like all encompassing MCs, he knows everything, crafting, medicine, fighting, alchemy, beast taming, golem crafting and as said above weird sci-fi stuff, it's just too much.
In short, it could have been better but turned out boring. Will keep reading a bit more but expect to drop this one soon.

It reminds me of what happens to "Solo Bug Player", that one also become boring with the ironman suit BS.

The first 10 to 20 chapters are interesting but soon after that the story just falls flat. Nothing happens for 70 more chapters and when you think something is going to happen, the author introduces a golem/mech that the MC deploys in every scenario. Like other reviews said, only read this if you literally have nothing else better to do/read.

As it states, if you're bored this is an ok read. The first season is actually not that bad if you like OP MC's from the start that is.

The second season is where it goes from ok to bad. The author is even adding
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
mechs to this tale which is completely nonsense.
I find myself not even caring to read this much even when I see a new chapter released.

But after about 20 chapters you'll likely realize how boring and empty the plot is. Once I reached chapter 35 I was fed up with how little the manhwa had accomplished over such a large amount of chapters. It's not worth reading unless you simply have absolutely nothing better to do.

it just needs to be good enough to periodically distract you from being crammed into a tube with 100+ other germbags. i haven't been on a plane since early 2020 but it seems like it'd do that much.

How to read it.

Well, I recommend reading First 6 chapters from Asura, 7-10 from leviatan, then re-read lynx (prev. secretscans) version from the start and keep reading only that version.
Reasoning: even though there's a whole bunch of mistakes in Asura's version, the initial chapters flow the best and seem the least dumb (in other versions the writing seem super dumb at the start - probably even in korean). But after that read only lynx (secretscans) version
(what mistakes? read the end of ch. 27 from lynx (secretscans) for all the mistakes in Asura's version corrected.)

And don't bother with the official translation. It's probably the worst one. It was translated by Kakao in-house and licensed out. It definitely sounds like it was made by someone who has English as their second language & rather knows English vocabulary than what actual spoken English sounds like.

I feel like the chapters are way too short for the format

In short the story is very very inconsistent .You can clearly appreciate how the author is trying to milk out al many chapters as posible without getting nowhere in most chapters using lame Korean court drama tropes .It really reminds me of They Say I Was Born a King's Daughter in this aspect.

It starts introducing on the first chapter many things that will slowly be milked to keep the tension ,but could perfectly not happen :
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
in the case you still believe it has plot
-MC has been in a parallel dimension with heroes 1000 years,
-Reincarnated MC ,
-3 types of energies that apparently (that only exist por the mc to brag and create infinite plot armour)
-bla bla bla...
Constantly other "interesting" stuff will be added whilst they're completely ignored plot-wise (other than for convenient flashbacks).

The development is really frustrating, it goes so much in circles that he usually says a reasonable solutions for some thing ,but always ends up doing flashy unnecessary things that are the oposite (apparently there aren't any consequences for his actions ). All for the sake of building tension.

There are many petty assassins or your generic influential bad guys that the author randomly throws at the MC just for him to be victorious or kill.( bet he has killed half the country by now).

It might be bearable if there was any development, but the author is way too busy contradicting himself for that to happen. It's almost as if the author doesn't even re-read his work .

Wow, this is awesome! I generally go into most webtoons/manhua/manwha (i.e. anything fully colored) with a fair dose of skepticism, especially given that the a) quality of the work itself and b) quality of the SOURCE material if there is one, can BOTH be widely varying.

Honestly, I picked this one up because I saw a meme-pic taken from it in the comment section of another story on leviathan scans' site. So yeah, came in with no expectations, and was completely blown away. Interesting premise, great MC that while originally crippled because of a 6 year coma, was quickly returning to his OP status. Great art too. There are a bunch of cliches, and I can't figure out why the chief antagonists are still alive as their plots and plans and motivations seem utterly idiotic, but even 'in spite of' those things, I had a major blast reading this story. And honestly, that's what it's all about, right?

This is just FUN! I look forward to where this is going!
