The protagonist Sungchil Kim may be an over-powered sociopath but he serves as a highly entertaining guide to "Other World," a very brutal and unforgiving dimension where the powerful elite abduct humans from Earth and pit them in deadly games for their amusement and personal gain. If you're fortunate enough to survive, you have a brand new world to explore as an adventurer, and possibly the sponsorship of an influential faction if you truly impress (or are lucky enough to be related to someone in a high position.) If you can't cut the mustard, you'll either end up as slave labor or as food for hungry monsters. We follow veteran warrior Kim as he poses as a n00b in these games so that he can gain new abilities and attributes to fight his nemesis, the demon king. The author does a great job of not making things too easy for the anti-hero, while at the same time showcasing how big of a badass he is. It all makes for a well-paced and addictive adventure.
If you are even remotely interested in the LITRPG genre, this is a must-read.
A summoning and demon king series written with an Eastern twist. A supremely physically powerful man realizes that he needs magic to defeat the demon king, and just start magic training at the beginning. A physically OP character, in hiding, with all the world against him.
Well edited, the story close fairly well, though with an Eastern flavor. These epic tales tend to become cumbersome and boring as the story progresses - hopefully not in this case. LitRPG elements are presented in a minimal but tasteful manner - interesting when mixed with an Eastern presentation.
I'll keep an eye open for the next book...
warning: this is a story when the MC is OP from the start, so if you hate stories with over powered main characters than i doubt you'll like this. for me, it's good enough. there are a few editing errors but it's much better than many self-published novels out there and the translators are great!
I'm very interested in where the story goes, and look forward to buying the next volume.
Thanks for a great read!
At the end the author states it was translated (Korean?), and it was a great effort.
My main issue is the main character. This is sorta like Hercules needs to learn magic. Yet always resorts back to strength. There is no underdog feel just an incredibly powerful character who needs to learn magic.
