      It's very enjoyable to read. It sticks to the fact that it's an adventure story. No long-winded flashbacks, no large time skips that leaves out a lot of story details, no cheats that conveniently justifies the MC's OP-ness. Just pure bliss of reading the MC's experiences in another world as if you are also experiencing it yourself (or watching a movie). 

      Also, the author is very consistent with the story telling (MC POV) and grammar. It's such an easy-to-read story compared to those with long-winded flashbacks, tripping grammar and too many character attributes. (Imagine Harry Potter always checking his level and stats and see if it adds fluidity to the story.)

      Seriously, read this up! :)

      While this novel is extremely well-written and all the 5 star reviews are warranted, I can only say that this novel isn't for everyone; myself included. Before considering reading you should expect that most of the story involving the MC talking/contemplating about philosophy, literature and linguistics as well as the MC often doing deep analysis in various things. The rest is often about delving into the various secrets of the world.

      The reason that I can't say that this novel is an enjoyable one for me is because I feel that the story progresses way too slowly. Especially given it's about a very intelligent MC who's isekaied as an elf into a stone-age civilization, I expected him to work towards improving it and revolutionizing civilization over several years, decades, and centuries. Instead it's about the MC becoming a 10 year old looking elf with his mentality also being just as childish. 80 chapters in and the amount of time that passed in the story for our MC has only been like only 2-3 months. While alot happened in that time it feels more like the MC being dragged around into various mysteries rather than any great development.

      As of now...

      Spoiler

      MC and Noel, his friend, are basically trudging around trying to find the other elves after being time travelled into the future but they end up sidetracked by finding human tribes and being involved with them. There's hardly been any personal development for the two, either physically, mentally, or magically. Their magic is still super basic with them only recently completing a four element magic system along with other rather insignificant magic like motion detection magic so they can sleep without keeping watch.

      If you like philosophy, history, metaphysics, linguistics, eschatology, and epistemology, then you should give this novel a try.

      A college student is transmigrated into a different world, where (so far) only elves live - but in stoneage-like conditions. They are your typical hunter gatherers. Due to a freak encounter with a God, MC and FML discover magic - cue a lot of philosophical and epistemological debates about reality and magic. Truly well written story with thought provoking content. 

      There are no glaring grammar or spelling mistakes. The pacing can be a bit off at times, where you'll have to re-read a sentence or two to understand it, but it barely detracts from what is an overall superb novel.

      •  Very good grammar. I couldn't find a single mistake, but I'm not a native English speaker, so... 
      •  Nice magic system based on knowledge and wisdom. But as the main character doesn't have a mentor, he's basically creating his own method. A great part of the novel is dedicated to self-discovery and exploration of the magic system.
      •  Suffers from long explanations, but it is expected, as there is a Philosophical tag, and because of the Magic System.
      •  This is the first time I'm seeing how Philosophy and Language can let you have an advantage in an isekai. Especially philosophy, as the different schools of thought, can explain Fire and it can give different versions of Fire Magic.
      •  The author is very knowledgeable and made a lot of research to write this story.
      •  MC Cai is a generous genius. He could be considered pretty perfect, but he is still flawed as he is overconfident in his knowledge of our world and makes mistakes.
      •  Cai's only advantage at first is his knowledge of Earth and translation magic.
      •  I came to this fic looking for some new Kingdom Building fic. But it starts at +100 chapters if you want to know.
      •  The release schedule is incredibly regular. 1 chapter per day guaranteed!
      •  I made a draft glossary till chapter 126 (at the time of the review), but I don't know where to post it... (maybe I'll make various comments in a special chapter or something).

      Good luck author, and keep the chapters coming! I really like your tenacity, I'm sure there will be more readers if you keep doing what you do.

      I keep holding out for it to change or there to be a payoff. Unfortunately it seems the further I get in this story the more the protagonist just gets abused. I've just lost patience at this point.

      What a lucky find. I am happy to have come across this novel. The characters choices are relatable and feel as if truly driven by their own thoughts and not just some plot.

      I like how much the potential the magic has and hope our MC will dabble into

      Some of his choices seem risky. Wheras MCs in other stories try to minimize their influence and Butterfly effects, there is our MC who makes major splashes. Good thing. That and it's consequences is one of the reasons I read this story.

      Flung to another world with nothing to his name but an elfin body and a translation magic that might have learned a thing or two from Google Translator, Cas must find his way back home with absolutely no clue as to how, and every step forward does nothing but hint at how deep the abyss goes, and how thick the fog gets.

      At least there's the friendly elf tribe to help him solve all of his problems as he becomes their elder through stuffing modern knowledge down their gullet... right?

      This is one of those criminally underrated novels, where writing, update consistency, plot, character development, and just about everything you can rate on a novel is pretty much top notch in today's standards. 

      In terms of writing, there is little to nothing to find fault in this story, in fact, the author goes as far as dismantling languages to study, as if to flex his skill to us who think people die when they get annihilated!

      Updates is pretty obvious, just look at that beautiful 8 chapters per week up above and we're set!

      As for plot, the MC is stranded in an Isekai, knowing nothing but the fact that he doesn't belong, and as we follow on his journey, we're pretty much in the same boat. As a story that excels at accomplishing what an actual Fantasy Isekai is supposed to be, the only way to know if gods are gods and blessings are blessings is to get out of your non-existent comfort zone and explore, study, develop and stop with the machine translator for a change. Also, you have to talk with people, apparently...

      As always, the MC is the best indication of the level of character development present in the story. Here, Cas has no idea of what he's dealing with, but it turns out that his genius and modern knowledge are quite useful for the situation, but it turns out that they're not enough, and he still needs to bunny hop into walls to see if there's an exploit to help him reach the next stage, that must hurt! 

      IMO: The more tired of generic litrpg filled with cardboard cutout for background you are, the more you will enjoy Perpetual Study, Wich might explain the lack of traffic as a web novel in a site filled with degenerates addicted to the number crunching (let's be honest, we know what we are!).

      I'd put this on the same level as He Who Fights With Monsters, they just focus on different things, and the latter has the character panels to back it up.

      This is a Masterpiece of kingdom building literature despite not centering around that, it focuses on developing technology and magic before the sudden raids that eat at your sanity, Op enemies that know enough of top-down strategy games to trash you all around the map, ultimately giving you a phyrric victory that leaves no doubt to the fact that you just got played, 10 out of 10 would rage again!

      A chapter everyday with little to no gramatical/spelling mistakes and a very interesting and engaging story. The only thing i'd want is romance to happen between the MC and Noel so the stakes will be higher but there's no romance tag in the first place so I can't really complain.

      However if you aren't into philosophical/sciency nerdy monologs or you don't like an MC that doesn't make a super overpowered spell in the first 50-100 chapter then this novel isn't for you

      This is definetely in the top 5 of my favorite novels (and I've been reading for YEARS). I have no complaints. I have no complaints at all. I'm suprised that this is not popoular already. Great job author, I hope to be able to write this good one day.
