    I’m at ch 256 and author’s disdain for women is becoming a bit too obvious. Like all the female characters are either evil or sc*m and the only good one was killed off in the beginning for character development. I even thought he’d make her an undead but nope. He was acting so distraught by her death but it didn’t even cross his mind to bring her back like he did for omega. Then there’s the fact that all his undead so far were male in human form. All his friends are male and all the decent characters are male. The setup was because he committed suicide because a girl scammed him which I can understand mc aversion but not how almost all female characters we came across were b*tch*s. Does it get any better? I’m not asking for some simp, but balance. It feels like I’m watching the male version of she-hulk

      The FL is chill and cool who is able to rival the mc and some other decent females. But yeah we keep finding evil women which is annoying but the story and worldbuilding make up for it.To be honest I don't even remember since it's been a long time since I read earlier chapters.Updates r extremely slow and author went on hiatus for a long time due to his health.

        If your talking about Cassandra then that won't be enough. The writer isn't well versed in writing female characters

    Come on guys stop being dramatic about our author!!! Not everyone like op mc or dark mc who being cunning,evil and serious with storng plot amor!! Our mc need he own army since everyone hate hero of darkness and whole world hunting him since that was the other god wanted to kill him. His is innocent who choose not op skill(since not many skill left he can pick from god)but he know how to use it for his own survival and his general evolution. Will you all being realistic? Can you imagine you are just normal people who is hate coz he was hero of darkness and survive for your own self? I also know why author need comedy line since he was thinking how the mc not forgetting where his come from or go crazy over pressures to survive on that chaos world where other country and god followers and hero hunting him. I am thankful I found this different story and I like the author too so pls dont give up author-nim and thanks a lot admin for keeping updates our novels hehe

      MC is extremely cringey at the start but luckily that gets better over time. Power scaling becomes stupidly unrealistic in the later chapters and it becomes difficult to imagine the world that the story is set in. If you disagree, then please explain what an 'ethereal being composed of billions of stars and hundreds of planets' (in chapter 865) is supposed to look like and/or do to somebody the size of a regular human.

        Imagine God from one punch man Anti spiral Budda Also forgot featherine . . Incase of someone the size of a galaxy I picture it as it's so large I mentally zoom out to see a projected image of our galaxy as a disk the size of a hand then the God as a regular human size all interactions requires me to switch pov and don't even try the mental imagery of them side by side mc would be smaller than a atom

        Didn't you also read that world where all the god rise and fallen? That's mean you need to get more power to become demigod no? and that world where they all can get it which a lot fallen God relics so ofc the power and battle mostly epic battles between God powerhouse and chosen one.

        Do you know what chapter the banquet starts it’s been awhile since I have read, should I just reread instead?

        Reply
      • Diandian 2

        Which banquet? At 1st to 3rd arch was just normal banquet for him to get king title on his own land. But for hero councils meeting it was not coming yet until arch 6 if I am not mistaken since I was still at arch 5 now. I was stocking more chapter hehe
