Pretty good actually, the art is special but fits well with the story. Moreover the mc is smart so go read it and enjoy.

Cliche magic school failure boy who is a genius in theory with no power finds a parasitic magical OP object that grants him abilities, he promptly runs around and has everything go his way: facing off against those who looked down on him, showing up teachers, beating school bully A, having support thrown at him casually by a trusted one, knowing exactly what to do and handling it all with a stoic "yes, this is fine" expression the entire time.

It's exceedingly boring.  I can't find any attachments to the MC, nor are the side characters very defined.  His power is handled in the most boring manner possible despite the insinuated dangers of it, he literally just... "Oh, okay then" and moves on.  Rather stunned at all the overwhelmingly positive reviews, seeing as I couldn't handle it past chapter 15. 

I'm sorry, but it is my genuine opinion that this is a bland, unseasoned, OP MC manhwa, not even done in a way to keep my attention... and I might've stuck with it longer if it hadn't thrown some random nekkid girl with nipple pasties at me for "fanservice" that was frankly laughable.

Overall a pretty good read so far. The artstyle is very complementory and suits the emotions that are meant to be portrayed. The mc is quite likeable and the action scenes so far have been pretty decent. I highly recommend giving this a read

Just so that everyone is aware, the original novel has a harem tag. I kept reading the webtoon as it's interesting but going to drop it since it has harem relationships (much like tomb raider king which I dropped for the same reason).

I know it doesn't look like it right now, but as if chapter 55+ the beginnings are there.

So if harem squicks you out like it does me, just a warning here as the tag isn't on anime planet's page.

This is a waste of an perfectly good webtoon and a cool, level-headed, humble and geeky MC. I liked the first girl paired with MC (they are really compatible) and assumed there was just that single romance and was actually thinking wow they introduced an amazing female lead right in the beginning. Just when you start to like him and the female lead, bam you have a semi-naked elf girl and a harem stamp, projection much? What a waste!
