Im currently in chapter 29. 

If you didn't read this oneyou're missing out on one of the best-hidden gems out there. This is revenge sorta manhwa with op, badass mc. Don't let the first few chapters fool you. Our mc alone wage war against the whole Korean military and its very satisfying to read and the hype is real. It felt like I was reading solo leveling, no even better than that.

Until chapter 29, I'm more than satisfied and hope that the mangaka don't mess up in the future chapters like by adding psychological thingy. 

And I logged in just to review this manhwa and that's just how good this is. And mah god I can't wait for chapter 30 anymore. 😫

Before I start, I wanna point out that everything I've written in this review is completely my opinion, and I ask everyone to respect that.

Now that that's out of the way, let me start by saying this: I didn't hate this manhwa. Although I haven't read through the vast majority of it, I feel like I might be able to judge the story based on what I've read. Before I started reading this manhwa I quickly scanned some of the reviews on this site, and the amount of praise I found was astonishing, and thus, my expectations were high. this manhwa isnt bad. The art is good, I've read worse stories and I've seen characters that were written a thousand times worse.

The problem I have with this manhwa stems mostly from the fact that the ain driving force of this manhwa is the excitement-high you get from seeing the MC exact his revenge. other than that, the action is mediocre, the main character is pretty dull and there are very few things this manhwa stands out with. That being said, it is the case however that the afformentioned excitement-high that this manhwa delivers has a lot of potential. It can be very satisfying for you to see someone exact their revenge, especially on people who truly deserve it.

I think a big reason as to why I wasn't a fan of this manhwa is because my expectations were very high going into the story, so I was let down by the lack of quality storytelling. I stopped reading it rather quickly (ch. 26) and I might continue reading this manhwa in the future. If my opinion on the manhwa has changed by then, I will either update or delete this review. If anyone wants to try and convince me to change my opinion, go ahead. I'll try to be as open-minded as possible. 

I'm going to finish this review off by recommending this manhwa under certain circumstances. If you are a person who thoroughly enjoys revenge stories, and seeing OP MC's where the fights are incredibly one-sided, read this. It's going to give you a ton of hype, and an amazing excitement-high, so if that's you this is a must read. If you're looking for high-quality storytelling and amazingly written and complex characters, then this is something you should not read.

WoW! This manhua is just insane!!

Before starting, I warn all those who cannot stand gore well (in the beginning of the manhua and maybe later? I dunno) because, even if it's not shocking, it's still surprising. Well now that's done, let's rock!

Starting with the Art. You know when you look at a drawing wich isn't the best but that you love anyway. It's almost the same here but it's even better because the art is perfect for this story. The drawing gives off all the emotions when it's needed and it's not lacking in anything. It's at an insane level when it comes to the fights, you'll doubt you're reading a manhua.

Then, I don't have many things to say without spoiling the story. It's good, but it's a nth revenge story. I don't know if the story was great at the beginning or not, but personnaly, it inspired me. And now when a chapter comes out, it's the story that really interests me.

Finally, for the characters. It's not (yet) really explained how the mc became *like that* (yes, you have to read first) but I'm waiting the narrator to explain it.
We can't forsee what will happen! (even if it's not unpredictable, the author is good at that and that make us want to continue reading yayy!) Indeed, there're several things you can assume without being sure but some answers come as you read.
The mystery is well handled, even for the different characters.

Overall, it's a great manhua to read. You'll enjoy the fight scenes and you'll fall in love with the mix art + story. Well.. that's if you like the manhua.. but either way, give it go!

A bloody revenge story no remorse only revenge for a former NEET that discover a strange sword. The art is good, but the real quality lies in the personality of the main character and his past with a good group of antagonists. The overhelming power is not an issue here because the main character use it well. A real outlet.

in tears, I want more and when I get a cliff hanger I get hat feeling in my stomach that I used to get when my favorite anime was still making new episodes and the episode ends five stars
