    Just to be brutally honest... it's an ok novel. No wow factor, no new flavor, nothing. It's giving "generic". It depends whether you find "generic" a (+) or (-). In some ways it is somewhat predictable, from the plot to the characters (their personalities). Characterization could use more work to make the characters feel more "real" (subjectively speaking). Perhaps I'm just tired with the tropes used in this novel given how common these elements are to the point that I must say it's overused. I can't tolerate some illogical aspects (narrative wise). Author needs further development in the aspect of conceptualization, so as to avoid resorting to incorporating cliché. I need more layers to the plot, characters, and overall elements of the narrative. This may have potential, but serious work needs to be done. To summarize, I find this novel no different than the tens of the same genre and plot... average. It's not bad but it is definitely lacking in some key aspects. Just saying.

      the whole point of it is to be generic, easily digestible work that all kinds of people can read. nothing author does could change anything, it's just how this genre is.

        Well, if it is intentional as you say, then it succeeded in its aim for mainstream mediocrity. But I must disagree, the author is capable of changing it, but as you've said this is how the author wanted it to be. Which is rather restrictive to the potential of this novel. However, if the author really had it in them, then they would have created something better than this. Also this genre is extremely versatile. What you're referring to is the trope. But since the author chose to go with the trends instead of diverting into a new branch, well, it is what it is.

      I get where youre coming from, and I even think that parts of your critique are valid. Still, I think the overall Critique is too harsh. Imo, this novel is really great, ofc the depth in some points isnt mindblowing, but the way the author uses a light-hearted concept for characters and character interaction makes me grin or laugh a lot and there are even some really epic moments. Also the pacing or rather the direction of thought for the story is almost always relatable and makes it easy to follow the story without getting less invested. But since you said you are rather tired of the trope usage and say, that the novel is mid, im rather curious: which novel would you recommend then?

        Though, I agree that the simplicity in its writing makes up for it given how easy it is to digest the information, that is true for entry level novels. If I were to recommend a novel for beginners, then this would be among my considerations. As for recommendations: Taking the Mafia to the Magic World Village Head's Debauchery Emperor's Domination Cultivation Online Ancient Godly Monarch I'M KIDDING XD! Can you imagine even suggesting any of these [REDACTED] novels. Anyway, if you ask me, I'd recommend the staple classics in this website (iykyk) Though I am deeply infatuated with the eloquence in the writing for Jackal Among Snakes, I am quite conflicted with the plot. Hero of Darkness is unique though I do feel iffy about certain aspects. Villain Retirement is entertaining. Mother of Learning is great as well. Love the games of politics in Kingdom's Bloodline. Love the MC in The Villain Wants to Live, but I need more. Throne of M.A. is great if accompanied with music.

        Harsh? I beg to differ. The tone... perhaps, but the points are true. I strictly emphasized the lack of layers in the characterization, which is true, since, I don't know if you'll get this but I try to visualize the "blueprint" or "framework" of the character if that makes sense. And some characters are illustrated in a way that follows a very common structure among various works. From their mentality, to dialogue and speech patterns, hence I deemed "generic". And yes I am well aware the use of archetypes in literature is necessary to create recognizable and relatable characters. Fundamental, might I add. But adding extra layers could go a long way. Laughs and grins? Well, I'm glad it worked for you, but that's not enough for me. I am fine with the light-hearted moments but subjectively, it registers to me as filler. My point is, this novel is lacking, but not unreadable. If that were the case, I would've labeled it as "brainrot". Its content passable but not enough imo.

    Anyone who has read the raws, when does he become a grandmaster and fight the guy he challenged?

    Just my opinion, i like Merlin since she considers Raon as family. Hopefully he won’t end up falling in love with her and see her only as companion or friend. I prefer not to have romance at all than Raon ending up with Merlin. 😭 please don’t hate me.
