Kim Roksu has one life motto: “Let’s not get beat up.” But after dozing off somewhere midway through the novel “Birth of a Hero,” he wakes up as Cale Henituse - one of the minor villains in the novel who gets the beating of a lifetime from soon-to-be hero Choi Han. Only time will tell how much longer he has before that dreadful encounter. Can Kim Roksu change the course of this story so he can enjoy a long and lavish life free of the soon-to-be hero?
This quite the original isekai here. The main character is totaly different from any other main character as the other charcters he hes some particularities that makes him unique, it is simple to remember the characters of this manhua.The plot is intersting but quite slow. Moreover the way the hero think can be quite perturbing. I advise ti read it to undersatnd the difference between this isekai and the others.
This is one of those stories where you'll end up searching for the novel since you're too impatient to wait for the next chapter of the manhwa because it's too good. The art piqued my interest the first time I saw it and I ended up reading it out of curiousity. But after a few chapter into the manhwa, I was a little lost. It became harder for me to understand what was happening anymore which lead me into reading the novel. And only after reading the novel, I could understand the manhwa much better. I just think that the manhwa could do a little better on explaining stuff but overall I really really love both the novel and the manhwa a lot!
As per yoojh, I didn't appreciate the imported artwork--photos and 3D renderings--used in some of the backgrounds. There are some pretty beautiful characters, but the eyes (especially Cale's) are kinda unexpressive. Colorful and shimmery panels. The exposition of events is lacking. Like, we know Cale is using the events from the novel to prevent some things and gain advantages (for the quixotic goal of living peacefully), but the way these events are introduced and tied together feels very haphazard. Frequently, things feel half-explained or as though they're just missing something. For some reason, I get that impression almost every time Ron is brought up. I don't really care for the shield and vitality quests, nor the implication that fe will continue tracking down these spirits and gaining power-ups. Most of the allies that end up surrounding Cale I don't have strong feelings about one way or another (they're just there to show how this supposed "trash" is actually a decent leader), but the dragon is absolutely adorable. It's like the animal version of a tsundere, where it follows behind them from a distance. I got How To Train Your Dragon flashbacks. Seeing Cale being wily, competent, and nonchalant while suppressing feir dread is quite entertaining and keeps me wanting to read more. But the awkward exposition, the meh side characters, and some uncompelling plot choices have held this manhwa to mediocrity (at least for me). [Reviewed at chapter 33]
