Despite its lackluster storytelling, cookie cutter characters and generic tropes; This manhwa turns out to be a compelling narrative about the class divide by bringing our character who is essentially at top of the world to the lowest part of the society. The story is an exanmination of those at bottom 1% from the eye of a former 1%. It have all the infantalize many difficult problems like solving corruption by just firing the corrupt . But the story is really compelling when it examines how the society values the worth of a worker only by what society percieves as exciting. This manga doesn't infantalize the argument by saying that those at the top are pencil pusher, ratther it asks us to rexamine the sometime ignored worked of those who works as lubricants in the caomplex economy but are often seen as filthy or less worthy becuase of the kind of the work they do. All this subtext is bogged down by a.) static and lifeless art; The charcters who are really an archetype of an idea rather than being a well realized person, b.) Action scenes which are lackluster but whose consequences are iused as excellent meaphor for need of skill development for social climibing c.) Character Interation which is just to forward the plot and feels like an collision of various archetypes , but is an excellent example of how once social group is determined by onces social standing. d.) Pacing which is too fast; there is not enough breating space for conflct to develop , we rapidly go across various plot points instead of bbreati=hing with actions and theri consequences. etc In conclusion, I can't really hate this manhwa, because of it layered subtext, but everthing upon this subtext is subpar and fails to impress. making me conflicted on wether to give to give it rating of 6 for being a recommended series, or 5 for not recommening. Ultimately deciding on 5.5; though I am definitely leaning towrds the 6 rather than 5
Grade: C This one is relatively unique but disappointingly, it can't do anything else right. The biggest turnoff is that the MC is a gigantic prick for no reason. A literal villain. The only benefit is it makes it funny when his selfishness gets misinterpreted as good favor. Other than that, it's basically a work politics manhwa. Everything is about social connections, schemes, and hierarchy. Very little of it is actually about monster hunting, dungeon cleaning, or anything else for that matter.
I was so sure after the first chapter that this was going to suck and about three chapters in, I was positive I was right because the ML is a huge douche canoe. HOWEVER, it only took a few more chapters for me to absolutely love this story. It is so funny and I love the characters and the way they interact. I am so entertained by this and I love watching it progress, especially since I can already tell that the character development is going to be so good. I really recommend that people read past the first few chapters before deciding it's irredeemable.
