Summary

In the midst of a ruined forest, due to the result of the clash between peak powerhouses, a body of a man lay. He was known as the 'Evilest Villain', the worst man ever born in humanity.His body was full of wounds with a spear piercing his heart. However, even in his final moments, he was calm and collected, with his usual cold face.
The only thing on his mind was, "Forgive me, I couldn't keep my promise to you."
He closed his eyes, ready to begin his eternal slumber in the darkness.
Suddenly, a blue light appeared, with ancient text that read, 'Do you want to turn back time, my child?'
He laughed and said yes.

    At which chapter does this become good? I stopped at 20 and up until now it's been only cringe moments and the Author constantly talking about how intelligent and cold the MC is, but he hasn't done anything to prove so and instead wasted a lot of money for virtually nothing.

      And like any other novel this novel is really preferred that you stack at least 10-15 chaps cause the plot moves pretty slowly but each chap is important not just some words written for the sake of filling the chapter

      Tl;dr : it's overhyped and bland, it doesn't deserve its rank Long version: Not that good tbh, I'm already at chapter 250 but it's not really that good considering it's ranked 7. Combat descriptions aren't detailed enough to make you imagine how the fight is happening (doesn't detail at all whether it's a one handed or two-handed style,whether it switches between the two, and saying holding the sword in a unique way???) and has been inconsistent (in the fight with the peak c rank boss in the yellow dungeon, it said his right hand went limp which afterward he used to hold his sword to fight the boss) clearly the author is new to writing fighting scenes. The story is okay but the way the author goes about it is subpar, not to mention he doesn't have good flow or pacing so to speak;when you read, it either feel's like it was rushed or it's too dragging and feels somewhat bland and you just want to get through the chapter.

      I'm on the latest chapter, it's really good so far. Story gets better because everything starts connecting and you will eventually understand the MC's perspective.

      His goal isn't to save anyone or kill someone. His only goal is to cause rampant chaos throughout everything. The early chapters is him using his influence to set up events in later chapters while building strength. It picks up once you get to world academy and he starts following through with the plans he's making.

      Probably after a 100 chaps. It gets good undoubtedly and there is lot of potential and some good arcs has well. For me I read this daily cause I am really invested in the story on how it will develop, it has its flaws but it's still worth it to pick it up again where you left off and read at least till 180-200 chaps, they ain't that long as well and kinda good .

        Ok, based on your and the other replies I will give it a try and read it up to chapter 250 or somenthing, just gotta finish supremacy games first, but it shouldn't really take more than a month or two.

        Sure man, give it one more chance and read it little bit more. But if you still don't like it or not invested in the story then drop it and continue with other novels. After all everyone has their own opinion and preference.

    The rank distribution in this novel is broken, like in s17 of Apex legends where like 70% of the players were masters, in this novel half of the characters we meet are at the SS rank, a random teacher who's going to teach year 1 students is SS rank, the lady who protects the MC is an SS ranked, and not counting the random SS ranked in the background of each chapter, at this point we have see more SS hunters than E, F, D, C, B and A hunters.

      XD REALLY??? i hit pred back at season 7, so rank doesn't mean anything now huh, i miss that game 🫠

      Reply
      • LIH 1

        Yeah, since the raking system in s17 rewards only those in the top 10 and it didn't count kills, most people were only rating🐁 to reach the top 10 and get points. That's why you will find a person without any skills whatsoever reaching the master rank.

        I think they tried to make it so that even the average player enjoy the ranked experience, but doing so made it so easy to gain points while while the match entering penalty is almost negligible. For me tho I stoped at platinum when I realized how meaningless to hit master during s17, and it's true because in this season (s18) most of the randoms I play with are masters while before it was rare to even have one master in the whole lobby. But it doesn't matter to me since what I enjoy is playing the game itself.

      I agree with this but also it makes sense that we are only seeing top powers since most of the story so far is based in World academy that is essentially the best of the best , so its understandable every professor would be at S-rank and above. (To be qualified to teach in it). And you forget that most of the students are ranks B-E with only exceptions like talented fourths years at A-rank.. But yea it's broken , how does it make sense that MC was able to match speed with an S+ rank hunter at D-rank , even with that ability to "slow down time", idk and the scaling with how his stats affect his actual powers don't add up too. Basically MC with D rank ability uses op ability to match S rank but gets trashed by C rank monsters in Dungeons even when he uses it.

    After reading non human anti hero MC then reading this, its really good read. It's a good novel to read when you have the right state of mind of what you are reading. Just like overlord, some people hate the MC to the bone literally. But the way the story narrated is very concise and neatly/orderly. P.S. I heard I could get banned if I mention other novels in other novels pages. Admin please don't ban me 😅 I just use it for analogy.

    [REVIEW:] If you like the usual anti-hero, edgy, emontionless MC with a cringe title, you might like this novel. The whole plot is very straightforward and generic so don't expect to see some crazy plot twists or mind boggling revelations or something. Asher, the MC, is one-dimensional in terms of personality and just your run-off-the-mill anti-hero MC. The author kept emphasizing Asher's perfect appearance, cold demeanor which annoys the hell out of me especially his intelligence which he really is not, the so-called "villains" are just plain dumb fcks. The side characters are bland and uninteresting except those who are close to Asher like Damian or his grandfather Nathan. The world building is so-so. The power scaling is favored on Asher of course. – Overall, I rate it 7/10. Good read when you turn off your brain and for passing time but most definitely not deserving of Rank 7 in terms of plot and depth. There are way more novels deserving of this rank but not given any attention.

        I like love the novel, and don’t think negary is evil, yes he eats people but like he doesn’t do it just because he can, he does ti because he needs something from it, and it’s the most efficient way, he is a anti-hero

      • Uncolored 2

        An anti hero does a right thing but not necessarily for a right reason or in a right way but what you described is someone who does something evil for a selfish reason negary is no anti hero punisher is an anti hero see the difference yourself, on the other hand asher is anti hero(not a Villain as the title says) because he does things for the greater good. What you say is like saying ted bundy wasn't evil because he didn't kill people because he could but killed them to get something (satisfaction)out of it. And don't get me wrong i like evil characters like fang yuan( no need for further explanation) or as i liked Jorg ancrath, and he was even way worse than negary as he killed millions of people even his own toddler brother but that doesn't mean i like him or someone like fang yuan as a person yet these two are in my top 10 literature characters yet i cant bring myself to see them as something more than evil

        If not anti-hero he is a chaotic neutral, that’s literally his thing freedom, and you can search up. Chaotic neutral that’s how I view negary and he doesn’t kill just for satisfaction he needs it or for his hunger or for power to a greater thing, something like feelings of satisfaction is beyond him

      • Uncolored 2

        Ok on this topic(chaotic characters) i know what it is by the way, there are variations and you're not entirely right negary is indeed a chaotic character so is asher but the two are different types. Ok you see asher is chaotic neutral but not negary, negary is chaotic evil and don't separate chaotic characters from good-evil , hero-anti hero topic because a hero can be chaotic good and an anti hero can be chaotic neutral you get what i mean they're like personality traits? So when i say negary is evil i don't mean it in a satanic destruction pure evil level but a character that puts himself above all without considering others life and is selfish and cruel with no sense of remorse and penitence for his actions which is the exact definition of a chaotic Evil character. And by satisfaction, i meant ted bundy not negary i just compared ted bundy's goal from killing people with negary's goal (growth and stability of his form) and my piont is just because it's good for them it isn't right
