Sexist, misogyn, rapist I hav'nt seen a worst Manga.

Seriously, I though this manga was a classic Fantasy/dungeon/rpg manga but no...

The main character is awful, he's a rapist and spend he's time to f*ck, and rape every girl he's seeing this is sooo akward and make me sick. Seriously what's wrong with this author??

The characters were apparently developed by throwing a dart at a dartboard, they're that great, lol. The art is not bad, not great, there's nothing unique stylistically, but it's solidly drawn. The story started off ridiculously bad, this seventy year old man suddenly turns into a thirty year old, nothing was really offered by way of explanation, it just happens. Between the carefully timed sex scenes the story isn't bad actually. It's just so poorly fleshed out and the characters are so one dimensional that you can't possibly care about anything that happens to any of them. The plot could have been cool if it wasn't just used to fill pages between sex scenes. This was labeled 16+ so I figured there's bound to be some but it just feels like a story that can't decide if it's a porn or a fantasy, but it straddles the two worlds poorly. Pun not intended.

The final nail in the very sturdy coffin this volume now inhabits (actually I gave it back to the bookstore, for free, for reasons I'll detail now) was the final sex scene. I thought, mistakenly, that he'd allow the five year old girl not get railed by Aur, or at least come up with some sort of magical "hey look, she suddenly turned 18 (or any number over 15, for that matter). No, instead he bangs a five year old in a graphic scene for pedophiles. It was disgusting and the only time I've considered burning a book.
