    I followed this novel up to the foundation of the mercenaries but .. I couldn't digest it anymore. The author had a bad time in real life and that's why I wanted to continue following him, but now the novel is a perpetual repetition of almost the same events, infinite abilities without even much coherence, paradoxically the most important point that could be the bond with other female characters and was almost abandoned (by the author's own admission), in order to focus on the clashes. It started off quite well, and was enjoyable at least until the end of the kingdom of fire chapters but after.. Eventually it just started to bore me. I hope the author overcomes the black period due to his illness but this novel has now deviated too much from my tastes.

      Brother, you stopped exactly where the novel was reaching at its peak. The end of Elven Empire and the current arc has revealed so much about the world building and we know a lot about events of the past than before. Plus, Kahn is no longer just hiding but has become truly powerful in the latest chapters. There are 3 new amazing and equally important characters introduced as said by author and you can see how the story is progressing amazingly in current chapters. Read if you feel like giving it a last chance. Otherwise, it's okay to move on.

    I have only a few questions before reading. Will mc overcome his trauma? Will he be happy? Will he find joy in life?

    Reply
    • ShadowKiller 1

      Yes. But it won't happen really quickly and almost took him 700 chapters at proper timing to overcome all of them. As of chapter 860, he is becoming a perfect Antihero character and now even a total badass who can wreck other Heroes by himself. Character development is one of the best one in this novel.

    To those whose reading the “comments” or “reviews” understand this. The readers of this novel are two completely different people. One side are people who want the typical harem, genius protagonist with a 12 inch, generic and bland characters and can’t handle references and a few cringe moments. They expect the Mc to be perfect, which is ironic because it makes him the most bland character. The other side are people who enjoy the novel simply because they want to or are looking for something different. Personally this novel is a solid 7/10. It has some great moments and has some bland moments. However the world building makes up for it. Unfortunately in order to form an opinion you have to read it. Like one piece, you have to get past the first 100 episodes to enjoy it. Same with this. I’m not saying you will org*sm to the novel. All I’m saying is this is fun for those who dont want to think all the time.

      If you look for something different than you don't read this novel this is not even a original theme. And what you are saying is this is a novel where you don't have to use your brain than i don't understand how this novel is a good one in a long term. God gave you a brain use it even though you have 2 cells

        It has plenty of brain in terms of plot. You're just hating and omitting out that fact so your nonsense and biased comments look good on the surface. Here, author has actually done research about everything and puts all the plots, characters, references and story progression perfectly together. The red ancient rune in chapter 8 is connected to chapter 858 and mentioned after almost a year and half; that's enough to show how well-thought and well-planned this novel is when the author himself was a rookie. You don't find those things even in the so called 'masterpiece' you're preaching about that make you use 2 brain cells. Plus, the references are meant to be that way. It's not unoriginal, just that you're too braindead to understand the intent behind them.

        Not every novel has to be a critical masterpiece, some are just made to be fun, to fulfill the reader's desire. There's a reason Isekai is so popular despite everyone universally agreeing that, 99% of them, suck more then a pstar. Sometimes, people don't want to use their brain while reading a novel, they just want to come home from a long, exhausting day, turn their brain off, and enjoy some mindless fun.

        That is what makes people like you even more sad. Everything must be a certain way. It must follow the same flow. It must be this way or no way. God gave me a brain thankfully, but at the same time I used my brain to not always be critical of things because I realized “ hey, when I use my brain I start to realize everything is actually pretty pathetic and dumb. The people around me, the places I go, the job I do. When you start using the 2 cells in the brain you start to realize how pathetic things are. And obviously your opinion doesn’t stand for its rank 11. You may not agree with the rank or what I say, however ranking and statistics don’t lie. So instead of constantly berating and using your 2 cell brain, start doing things that doesn’t requiring constant critique or brain power. If anything you make life dull and irritating for you and others

      Because it's better than what you're making out to be like rest of the self-proclaimed critics who think they have some elite taste and know better as if they can write a better novel by themselves. Personal opinion and preferences vary for all the people and it's specifically made for people who like Animes, games, movies, TV shows and other platforms many of us grew up with. Nobody cares if you didn't like a reference or a dialog. The author didn't write it for people like you in the first place so stop b*tch*ng about it like you're owed something.

        "Nobody cares if you didn't like a reference or a dialog. The author didn't write it for people like you in the first place so stop b*tch*ng about it like you're owed something.." OH d*mn looks like we got again a little fanboy who cant tolerate negative comments. This novel has tons of references, side-note, bad dialoges and vulgar speech behaviour. So much is annoying, cringe stupid and bad(exept some plots) and even though i like "Anime, games, movies and Tv shows" it is absolutely too much, and because its too much,it became cringe and annoying and only disturbs the flow of the story, whether its the sidenotes, all the annoying low lvl references or his half teen behavior. This novel is less written for people who like anime etc.It is more written to teens who identify with a vulgar mc, like the low lvl references, and like the tons of side notes. And if you guys start to become vulgar to the negative comments like the mc, it will only proof more the low age of you fanboys here.

      That’s just really pathetic dude. If you can’t handle “references” must the author cater to your needs? If anything I don’t mind them. And if I do have a problem I don’t cry in the comments. I stfu and leave. Can you do it?

        It’s very ironic, because you post this comment wanting people to rally behind you with the same opinion which obviously there are. You post this comment to seem big and obviously want to send a message to those who read it or created it or whatever. I am indeed crying because you make comments like these which are very pathetic. Idc If im the only one on this hill, I chose to argue with you because I disagree with what you’re saying.

      how is mother of learning... is it worth reading? what's it about

      Reply
      • Reformed_Potato 4

        Yes. But it isn't really for everyone. Basically it's about a student in a fantasy world (not isekai) who gets caught up in a time loop that repeats every month and he tries to solve the mysteries behind it and get out of it. The world building is top notch and characters are all very well written. The power scaling is also done very well, but don't expect an op Mc that one shots anything. The pacing is neither slow or fast, there's constantly something happening and keeping your attention. Tldr, good plot, good and smart characters, no isekai Read it

        I must say the pacing is slow at least for a webnovel and that together with those extremly long chapters it's more like a book

      Mother of Learning is not for everyone. Many dropped it on the very first chapter cause you know how long it is. . And hero of darkness is simple. This can be many peoples not first but their third or fourth novel
