    This story has disappointed me in such a huge way, that I made an account to review it. Essentially, this will have a lot of spoilers, but centers around the way characters are written and developed in this story. Primarily, how one specific character named Jenny was developed throughout the story.

    To get the non-spoiler territory out of the way, the characters in this story outside of the MC don't seem to have a specific rhyme or reason, nor a base personality that is developed and used to dictate their actions throughout. A character can go from being set up and behaving in a specific way, to a full 180 in which it now seems to give the MC justification to basically ruin their life since they betrayed him. Since the story mainly deals in female characters outside of the MC, this almost exclusively happens to women who are initially introduced as level-headed, hardworking, and very moralistic characters, only for them to be torn down and to then betray the MC in some way. Afterwards, he seems to go out of his way to be a massive piece of sh*t to them. Two of the main characters this happened to

    Spoiler

    Jenny and Diane

    [collapse]
    are the ones I'll leave in the spoiler section.

    Spoiler

    Okay, now to talk about Jenny and Diane. Jenny is the bigger example since we got more development for her character, but Diane also stuck out to me as being treated in a way that didn't make sense for her character, but could still be explained in the story since we really didn't get to see enough to know if the in-story reason made sense. 

    Basically, for Diane we get a loving mother at the start who has a short hookup with our MC, and then they become friends afterwards. The MC then keeps developing a platonic relationship with her, becomes invested in her life and child, helps them out by providing a place to live, 1 million dollars to Diane, and 1 million dollars of a trust account to her daughter Crystal. We're lead to believe that before the MC is taken away to be summoned once more, he has spent effectively 2 years developing a platonic relationship and being essentially Crystal's stepfather. At no time in this relationship did the father who is supposedly a deadbeat show back up. Before being summoned again, the MC then proposes to Diane, and says that he'll remain faithful to her until he gets back. We don't learn what happens after he left until he gets back 6 months later, but apparently Diane hooked back up with her ex in 1 week, gave him literally the 2 million dollars the MC gave to her, and pawned off the engagement ring on top of a symbolic ring the MC gave to her to give to Crystal to show he wasn't abandoning them. Where did this come from? We were never given a hint that Diane was still interested in her ex, that she wasn't strong enough to stay away from him to protect her daughter, or that she would be dumb enough to give away a 1 million dollar trust that was supposed to ensure Crystal's future. Then, when she gets arrested for money laundering that her husband committed with said money, the MC is very eager to take her daughter, get the mom's custody revoked, and then try to get her an even worse plea deal than the deadbeat dad... Why? We could say that in-story, Diane was really a bad or weak person the whole time and caved to the abusive husband who refused to allow a divorce, but even then she hadn't been in contact with him outside basic visitation for 2 years, and at no point showed that she was willing to get back together with him when she was still available. Even then, to randomly say that she is willing to ruin her daughter's financial future for some abusive dude she voluntarily left and stayed away from for 2 years on her own? It makes no sense.

    Now, onto Jenny. Jenny's character is introduced as someone who is in romantic love with the image her brother left her before she's summoned the first time, but still seems like a pretty normal and nice person. She's got 2 friends, is hardworking, and able to handle multiple properties that her brother gifts her. For 2 years she's in contact with her returned brother, openly has a crush on him, and is as rich as can be. When he gets summoned again, her accounts are frozen, she can't open any new bank accouts to allow her to get a job, and is supposedly banned from returning home. She scrapes and begs for money for 6 months, and is convinced to help try to apprehend her brother by the government, which culminates in the big betrayal moment where they drug him and kidnap him as soon as he's back. The whole time, Jenny has no idea that he was kidnapped again due to a misunderstanding where the MC walks in on her friend having s*x thinking it's her, and decides to storm out and not tell her that he was getting summoned. Diane doesn't tell her either when she asks her, and simply tells her that he went travelling. So, for 6 months she's left to think her brother abandoned her while having done something illegal and leaving her in a worse financial situation than she was before he came back. So, when he finally gets back she's pissed and wants to hurt him for causing her to quite literally starve... The reaction the MC has and most of the commenters was that Jenny was at fault for reporting him to the police, and that everything the MC does afterwards to force her out of his life, spite her, demean her by paying her the exact amount of money the feds rewarded her for her aid in apprehending him was, and then f*cking her best friend that he promised never to f*ck almost 3 years prior. We're given a moment where the MC admits that he f*cked up, but then turns it around to make it seem like her experience is somehow worse than his? Where he got kidnapped for a couple of days by three letter agencies when she starved for 6 months? How are those equivalent? I then skipped to the end to see how it goes, and her character supposedly devolves further and is treated like a bitch and abandoned by everybody because she keeps trying to get back at her brother... Yet, I don't understand how the MC decided to treat her like sh*t instead of reaching out and keeping her in his life until she calmed down, was able to come to an understanding, and express regret for turning him in while understanding that all of the damage done to try to get to him through her was his fault but not his intention. The man was flashing aroud made up gold, and thought the government wouldn't try to freeze his assets at some point in time???

    The biggest travesty with Jenny's character is that her experience over those 6 months doesn't even make sense. Banks are frozen? She can work at a temp service. They often don't require a bank account and can pay in a check that you can cash at a corner store. Need a place to stay? You have a condo that your friends also live in rent free. Need food? Your friends literally live rent free and one of them is supposedly rich. You couldn't ask them to pay you $100 to $150 a month each in cash so that you could have some food to eat. Getting hounded by the feds after they froze all of your accounts and claim that your brother was dealing in illegal cash? Contact a lawyer that would work pro-bono until your assets are unfrozen. You literally had access to millions of dollars frozen for flimsy reasons... A lot of lawyers would be willing to work a case like that with the promise of compensation at the end. Not to mention that the author seemingly turned a young woman who eagerly learned how to run two seperate properties while having showings for rooms, sales, etc... into a woman who couldn't even find a job at a temp service or rely on her friends who live rent free to help feed her while she contacts lawyers to help get her accounts unfrozen since it was illegal for them to freeze those assets anyway? Give me a break. Again, one of those friends who lived rent free, Susan, slept with her brother after he got back. Afterwards when she catches them in the act, Susan acts as if she had been so generous in helping her friend out for those 6 months, but we were literally told that Jenny lived off of plain pasta and box mac and cheese for months... If my friend's assets were frozen and I lived in his house, you bet your butt I'm feeding them and helping them make sure they can get their assets unfrozen. When your friend was up everything was all hunky dory, but as soon as she's broke, depressed, and destitute you want to pretend like you gave her a lot of help even though she is starving in the same home as you. It makes no sense.

    My biggest problem with this story is that the MC can apparently do no wrong, even when he says he's done wrong. The women in this story are treated even worse than most harem novels that you can find floating around. It'd be one thing if the characters seemed to have developed this way naturally, but it feels like they were given a time skip and some BS reasoning to make them antagonistic and the MC's next punching bag.

    (-3 stars) To be honest, the MC's personality is a big demerit for this story. He essentially just needs to walk near an attractive woman, and they will try to have s*x with him. Like how was completely random s*x with 0 buildup supposed to be interesting? He almost has s*x with his sister, all her friends, some random lady at the hardware store, his real estate agent, and almost gets himself killed by screwing some weird witch lady. I could kinda accept it in the fantasy setting because he was leaving the planet, and was maybe going to get screwed by the god so it was a "might as well" kinda thing. But man they just went on about how this one girl was missing out on soooooo much by not really loving the MC, which she had known for like a month. What's really annoying about the relationships is they just appear out of nowhere and are supposed to be significant or something. Like some novels just have s*x as a wish-fulfillment, others make it an important part of the story with a full relationship and buildup, but this one just makes it happen randomly and acts like that's not going to be annoying as hell.

    (-1 star) So another very annoying power the MC has is essentially a super Deus ex Machina vision, so he always knows what to do to get his desired outcome. So goodbye any tension to the story, not that there was much in a construction worker slice of life.

    (+2 stars) The fantasy stuff was pretty good and it got me excited for the rest, only to find out I was reading the slice of life of a construction worker. (-2 stars) And that was f**king boring. At some point, I think someone mentioned how he could have a cool job smuggling stuff with his inventory, but apparently he would rather lift things all day. Like apparently nothing he did in the other world could be of any use to him in this one. Like with his Deus Ex Machina vision and unlimited gold, why the hell didn't he take it to the black market or something. He can literally see the f**king future, but was too afraid to take the risk???? Stocks???? Venture capital investing??? Just so many missed opportunities.

    A review said you should skip to chapter 30, which I will probably do after this. This return to home arc really ruined this story for me.

    The author should have stuck to the fantasy setting p*rn and just not bothered trying for backstory or character development. He bullsh*ts well for the fantasy setting and really keeps things moving along, but when tries to depict modern life, family life, business it's painful to read. If you just skip from where he returns to earth, to about chapter 30, it's a much better read. You won't miss anything due to the fact it just doesn't matter

    The biggest demerit for this story is that it is written by someone who thinks that cruelty is cool.

    The MC is not really smart, nor is he a decent person. He blames everyone else but himself for anything bad happening and is a nut job in general. After he started cruelly killing everyone he perceived as hurting him, regardless of their intentions or attitudes, I'm just fed up with this sh*t. ?

    Almost no action.

    Mostly dialogue and drama. Focus is on relationships and s*x. 

    I waisted hours reading and hoping the action was comming. It never did.

    This is purely a self-fulfilling fantasy. If you are into that go ahead, just expect little to no tension and a lot of boasting and sleeping around with no real emotion or plot. I sadly am leaving this pretty earl into the story but there are so many things I find immersion-breaking or unrealistic of the characters to do in this that I can not continue.

    Edit: Even after 120 chapters am I able to get excited about upcoming confrontations, family drama and business endeavours. 

    _________________________

    With the 11th chapter just out it is time to review this. 

    From an author who has established that he can write fantasy and urban (technology/romance) comes a new work focusing on the troubles and opportunities the MC has to shoulder. Connecting to his now estranged family and preparing for another unfortunate "kidnapping" are some of the themes which were touched upon and will probably become more prevalent in the future.

    Grammar and reader-interaction is top notch.

    World and characters are nicely done with a surprising depth.

    Reading recommended!

    I have read 200 chapters and my assessment of this work is 3/5. I can confidently say that this is not a masterpiece.

    I'll start with the points that I didn't like.

    1 Strong negative attitude towards the whole world. Not excluding the immediate environment of the protagonist. The author sees the whole world in black and white (and let's not go with silly racism).

    2 The blatant absurdity of events. (No one would have let the protagonist do what he wants, and he would have just been shot.)

    3 Significant lack of information to write about what the author writes about. Why write about areas of the real world that you haven't studied enough? Especially if you cannot hide the feeling that you are writing about something that you do not understand. In the end, it's the subtleties that make the pieces good.

    4 The ground has not been prepared for the actions of many characters. We see only the actions, but not their reasons, because of which the nature of the characters crumbles before our eyes.

    5 Terrible tempo of the piece, which does not allow to feel the situation of the characters. Author why in such a hurry?

    6 And many other little things that affect the pleasure of reading a work. The sudden interruption of the story is one of them.

    7 It's boring sometimes.

    And now the pros.

    1 Unsuccessful attempt to create a fairy tale. (Everyone loves fairy tales.)

    2 Crystal. (Yes, the character is ranked # 2 on the good list.)

    3 Tricks. (The only originality of the piece.)

    4 The absurdity of the work. (Absurdity helps to pay less attention to various errors in the work).

    5 Some good jokes. (But unfortunately only good ones).

    6 And that's all. All that I have not listed, little things that only brighten up the shortcomings of the work, and which are not visible under them.

    I have doubts that I will return to this work and to the author ever. That is why I am leaving this review now.

    P.S. Sorry for the probably bad English, as it's not my native language. I have read this work and also wrote this review with the help of a translator. (To which, however, I am already accustomed, and I know how to use it).

    Reading some of the other reviews make me think nobody reads the synopsis. This novel focuses on what happens after a man has been summoned, done his mission as a hero and has to find his place in society whilst the threat of being summoned again is always looming over his head.

    It's also realistic. He has relationships and not all of them work out. Sure there might be some wish fulfillment in there but it's in basically every novel. Sometimes you want to punch a wall and sometimes you want to puke rainbows. 

    The author knows how to write and that's a big plus in general, good grammar, regular updates. 

    If your going to read this, done judge it until after his 2nd summoning. That's when things kick off...

    Chapter 1 starts of very solid, albeit a bit off from what I had expected, and then Chapter 2 thrusts us into a flashback, where we get the typical time skip stuff to gloss over a very generic hero story (Would have preferred an interesting hero story). And then the flashback kind of just doesn't end. Then you re-read the synopsis and really that this is the story. Not the interesting bit in Chapter 1, but the crap in between.

    How's the stuff in between you might ask? I mean, just imagine what would happen if you let a horny 15 year old teen write a story anonymously. This is what you'd get really. Rocket Nipples. Should I go more indepth and explain it? Nah.

    Anyways I'll update the review if I continue to read it.
