      I'm still getting through the chapters ever so slowly, but I wanted to say that the story is good. It's progression power fantasy through and through. If you enjoy dungeons and stats, there's nothing to hold you back from diving in and giving it a read.

      The novel can be enjoyable at times.

      Early on, there will be a lot of unnecessarily stretched words like "Come onnnnn~", but he stops doing that in the later chapters, so don't stop reading it because of that.

      That aside, another thing you'll most likely notice is that the protagonists IQ will look oddly familiar to you. That's because you've most likely seen that number on your thermostat. Yes, indeed. The protagonist has room temperature IQ. And no, not only does he not get smarter further along in the novel, he gets even dumber.

      As for romance, there is none up to chapter 161. I personally love that, as I find romance to be annoying and utterly unnecessary.

      Ability-wise, the protagonist isn't very OP. He's also incredibly paranoid, so most of the time, he'll be too afraid of showing his abilities to others, so he risks his own life and that of his friends as a consequence.

      What else...?

      Oh yes. The protagonist also lies. A lot. To friends and strangers alike. And it gets found out every time soon after. Does that stop him from continuing to lie, even at the expense of his friends safety? Nope.

      Another annoying trait, which continues all the way to chapter 161 is that he doesn't listen to others.

      When others try to tell him something or warn him about something, he just zones out and doesn't listen. Then later he realizes that "Oops, I guess I should've listened to what he said. I'll just have to ask someone about it."

      Yeah, that keeps happening.

      Oh, and get used to him asking and verifying the obvious, because he's not very bright. Things you'll deduce in a second is something he needs to spend an hour of experimenting or asking questions about to figure out. This might be because the author assumes you're as obtuse as the protagonist...

      So yeah, that should prepare you for what this novel has in store for you.

      The world building is awful, main character is stupid, and as no development throughout the story. The few love interest are all power leveled to magical be as powerful as the MC, their development as character are also bad. Don't waste your time.

      It's dull; the MC is a nervous mess around any girl. And it seems like he's trying to date a high schooler. Yes, the girl is eighteen, but I don't think a grown-ass man should be dating a girl who hasn't even graduated high school. The story feels like a solo leveling rip-off; it's set in the modern age, the MC gets an op power, and every girl he meets wants to be with him. To get into the dungeons, you have to go into a portal. He also monologues way too much, even when talking to characters. The action needs a clean-up; half of the time, I don't know what's going on; the author would write, " he then swings his sword" ok, where does he turn his sword? The fights need more minor details to get across what's going on.

      Thiers potential, and I like the mc's power, but it needs to be cleaned up more with further details added.

      This is about a young adult man who gets new abilities and the drive to get stronger, a Shonen type of novel. The story is from his perspective where we follow him to understand his golden finger and his growth from zero. There is no rebirth or transmigration to another body for once so we literally learn about the world alongside him.

      The setting is in the modern world where dungeons already exist for decades. The dungeon styles are more like medieval fantasy with monsters. I like the fantasy and LiRPG genres so I was hooked on reading this novel within the first few chapters. It is full of actions that are described well enough to imagine them. 


      From my point of view, there is a potential cp (couple potential) but the focus is not on it, unless this cp is in my wishful thinking.


      There is a status window in every chapter to show the protagonist’s progression which I find helpful if you do not read all chapters in one go.

      The other part that I like is the morale of the story; the enemies are the monsters and humanity is united against them. There are no bad characters that call trash everyone weaker than them. Almost no humans who are trying to kill the MC or enslave him for their own benefits. There are no rivalry or wars (so far) between guilds or countries for power. 

      However, I still don't understand the MC choosing to take unnecessary risks.


      Especially since his first teammates died in front of him. He is also very thrifty and don't renew his equipment or have a backup weapon at hand


      Finally, the story has potential for growth and I am looking forward to the reason for the dungeon's existence and MC's drive to get stronger and loving danger.

      The story itself is kind of a generic skill stealing story, I've read others with a similar concept. It's not a bad story, and it's entertaining enough I'll keep reading.

      It's a little different... The main premise is a guy in a modern world, with an rpg system, wants to be the strongest. This is basically this individuals story of how he gets there. Obviously not finished yet. The grammar, syntax, etc are all okay. Easy to read. Some things are repeated WAY to much. The worlds description and breakdown of the environments suck blue monkey balls, as in they are bad. For the most part the descriptions are not there. As of 99 chapters in, there is zero character growth... as in personality or what's makes the character. The rpg part obviously has really fast growth. The world really wasn't well thought out and doesn't really make sense. For example the way characters help others level but it supposedly takes forever to level up. IT DOES NOT AT ALL! Characters are going from 1 to 400 in like 4 months, wtf! The way organizations act towards other organizations and people is kind of bland. Honestly, just kill everyone, it seems to be ok. The MC is stupid, by that I mean borderline mentally handicapped. How do you want to be something all your life and at essentially 20 years old have ZERO knowledge on that topic. Zero knowledge of ANY enemies, they must still have the internet based off the setting. Increase the poor Mc's intelligence some. Have him make some non rpg growth. Skill acquisition is to crazy with no limitations, should have put some limit such as only being able to have a certain amount. At that point he can trade out for stronger ones etc. would have been better. A nice premise with similarities to other stories but give it a read and help the author improve. Story has potential but a rewrite would help.

      A world in which you don't need to do anything but have money to become strong enough to kill 99.999999% of the population, with dumb characters and op MC! There is no need for sweat, blood and tears! When you can pay somebody to lvl you up!!! (That is the wold building so far, takes a problem that many litrpg have and going to the extremes with it)

      Really digging the story.  I like the MC and how there is a steady progression.  It is cool to see how he interacts with other people in the story.  Even though he could easily just ask people to bring him along to get levels, he chooses to head out into the dungeon and learn how to fight on his own.

      Something about the knowledge that knowing if he dies, its over.  No restarts, no respawns, etc.

      Looking forward to plowing through all of the 100+ chapters!

      The Story is about a young man, starting his journey as a Hunter. It's interesting to note that the Protagonist is a native of that world. After he unlocks his status, he gains his 'cheat' so to say. I'm not going to spoil what it does, but I believe it has amazing scaling potential. Naturally, he also hides his status as best as he can from that moment onwards.

      I like the World a lot, it seems to be a mix of Danmachi and Solo leveling. With Hunters, who take portals into dungeons and clear them out. The setting is mostly medieval, no guns or absurd  science. The System has an interesting twist, in that you don't get free stat points or a job that you can chose. The stats after a level up are allocated automatically, and they vary from individual to individual. The Protagonist is going a speedster style build so far. 

      I also noticed, that the skills have no descriptions. The litrpg part is limited to the fact that skills and stats exist. The inhabitants of that world have to figure out their skills on their own.

      Style: The author writes this story in first person perspective in present form. It's perfect to give insight into the Protagonist of the story and make the reader more empathetic to his decisions and thoughts. I'm not quite sure about the choice to use present rather than past, but it doesn't do the story any harm so far.

      Grammar: No mistakes that I saw. But I would like to see more descriptive writing in the future. I like to have a vivid image of the surroundings, the characters and fighting.

      Story: I really like the progression of the Protagonist, and the Skill (cheat) that he gains. It has insane potential for the future and I look forward to where the author goes with this. 

      Character: The Protagonist is fairly relatable. Side characters, like the first group in which he was the porter, are well fleshed out with different personalities coming to light through dialogue. There is a slow romance buildup I believe. Between his neighbor, who is just about to finish the Hunter's college and start her journey as well.

      All in all, it's a promising start that leaves for wanting more.
