Synopsis

We're all told to find our passion in life, figure out what we are good at, and pursue it. In Akagi's case, it turns out her passion was assassination, not something a normal girl gets involved in right? Trapped in Free World Online for four years and forced to fight for her very life, her name became one that struck fear and terror in the hearts of Players and NPCs alike. But when the game was over and it was time to go home, what would happen to the terrifying assassin known as "the Red Hand?"

    Status: chapter 47 – recovery and the beginning.

    yeah no. IDK HOW this book got so many 5 star reviews but this is not a story about a misterious and powerful Assassin that is feared by the world but about a naive kid that is drunk on power and tells everyone she's an assassin just because no one can stop her. WTF is even the point of being an assassin if everyone knows you are one!? It would have been an amazing idea if one would just understand the concept of a f**king assassin lmao.

    Status: chapter 83 – hishya the dragon.

    A most excellent story for those who want a mixture of comedy, seriousness, and slice of life. If you want to see a teenager yelling down a city-busting dragon into becoming a pet because said teenager's older sibling can and will destroy the entire world if she wants to, this is the story for you. 

    Just one heads up though: This reverse isekai (?) has some heavy stuff in it. If you want fluffy, go read something else. Definitely not for the weak of heart or those who want an MC who will act as a goody two-shoes. MC here has one goal and that is to protect what little she has left in the real world - her sibling and her close friends and subordinates. She has no qualms allowing others to perish.

    Status: Chapter 8 – A Skyline and a...

    It is alright, the MC is cocky to a fault and wear her heart on her sleeve. I think she didn't deserve her reputation with how she act so far, it is outright lackluster in many ways.

    Her arrogant is through the roof as if implying that everyone else is beneath her and she can do whatever she want without second thought or critical thinking.

    The story is jumpy as in it is too fast pace that thing move so fast to the point many things are not well explained.

    The side characters so far aren't great but they are sufficient as I only read till ch 8.

    With my limited knowledge on English language, I don't notice much issue with the structure, wording, or the verb thus I think it is pretty good.

    Overall, the MC is unlikeable OP crazy maniac drunk on borrowed power like many other OP stories out there, the story up until ch 8 is fine, the pacing is too fast, the support chars are alright, and the writing is great.

    Status: chapter 32 – knocking is important.

    Better than most op MC stories I've seen here so far.

    It has a lot to develop and what's done hasn't been bad so far though I can't say this will be true in the future, that story with Jason as the MC had issues but when he went back to earth it became such a mess that I eventually abandoned it, we'll see how author does the worldbuilding of the nations and remaining players which I doubt will be easy but I hope they manage because everything else (action, events, mistery, characters) looks promising enough.

    MC is a neutral being, can be ruthless (she won't pull punches), is kind of sadistic, has a career to maintain, indifferent to most people. She wants to be LEFT ALONE.

    It starts out promising. Misfit, abused by her parents girl finds her true self while trapped in a MMO VR for 4 years and decides to be an assassin when she comes back to the real world and the novel heads in that direction for a very short while.

    I don't know what happened, the novel takes a U turn and turns into a Power Trip novel where Akagi just ain't got anything that can threaten her. The personality and problems is also dumped in the trash can because "it was another fake personality" and it wasn't "really her".

    The novel isn't bad mind you, it's reasonably good. It handles several weird, but interesting issues like "what happens when random joes is getting super powers and is released on the world". It also explaisn trauma's, psychological issues too. It's just too bad it never deepdives into these issues or really make good use of them.

    Overall, if you don't mind Akagi turning into an Ass (she's NOT a nice person, and can be a jerk even to those she loves. She's a much more compelling character at the start). Then go ahead and read this novel. Also don't expect any tension, this is a Power Trip novel and the only reason stuff happens is because Akagi lets them for the most part.

    Personally I tried to like the novel, but I couldn't. I kept being reminded of the potential of the novel I saw at the start being used for a Power Trip story with a MC turned from an interesting MC to a dislikable MC. So rather than saying it's a "Bad novel", i'd rather say "I didn't like it" "I was disappointed with it".

    Status: chapter 12

    Storywise is readable and decent enough but the dialogue and characters are so much corny, especially the MC. Just weird way of talking, edgy one liners and many pointless conversations. If you don't mind the "cringe" I would reccomend it, but its very hard to read since with the themes you would expect a mature MC

    I am reader, a crazy one.  People may or may not discuss about that. But I will simply tell you I red sh*t, and I was bored by people who forget, that not everyone will be perfect. That there are people out there looking what they should do. What their real calling in this world are? Many persons ask this. The answer is not pure and nice. Our world is brutal. Sadly you must be more brutal then people around you, cause If you are not. Others will pay for that. So lets show them. What a person, who was put to their limits could do. You may disregard me as a edge lord, I dont care, but there will be no sympathy for you. World is battleground. At the end there is simple question to all, Who made Us like this? Us or society?

    Was not used to site but this stuff have 10 stars not just five.

    Status: chapter 168 – hishya’s bet.

    One of the best stories I've read in scribblehub. If you really like Overpowered MC who does not work as a Paragon of virtue then this is for you....

    A slice-of-life with a true Antihero MC.... READ IT !

    Status: chapter 25 – a father’s regrets.

    This novel is like a story that I would write. Full of cringe and edgy storyline that I used to think was cool. Tbh, the way it's written isn't terrible, but it's not most people's cup of tea. My pet peeve in the novel was mostly about the MC, her identity, and the consequences of her actions. The author wrote it as if the government was completely stupid and helpless against an OP young adult/teen. That I could take. But the fact that the MC revealed her identity, powers, and everything immediately after she woke up got me irritated. Well, at least I tried reading 25 chapters until I couldn't take it anymore. Maybe I'll come back and read through it again when I'm bored, but for now, I bail.

    Status: chapter 214 – the beach episode?

    Pretty good story tbh, but there are a few flaws. 

    First, most of the characters are Japanese but they don't act like it. They threw insults and cursed out loud like there was no tomorrow. Which is understandable because the author is an American.

    And Second, there are too many filler chapters to my liking, but oh well, people have their preferences.
