TLDR: First two chapters are a really interesting stand alone take on what would happen if you returned after 1 year of straight disappearing after being isekaied. Chapter 3-6 is a hot mess of plot holes, bad writing, poor character development, insane pacing, and an unnecessary female companion who seems to exist to just feed the new dookie spear hero with information, ideas, and plans she should have no real knowledge or reason to know as well as to try and be some kind of moral compass for him. I suggest either just read the first two chapters and stop(my recomendation) or skip the first two chapters if you don't mind all of the above and just don't read the comments that are all just negative because we liked sword hero not spear hero(facts). I don't usually make a judgement quick on a story. But man do I absolutely hate what this story became even by 6 chapters. In 6 chapters we have moved at an insane pace for the story. Including the bait of the first two chapters MC seemingly not the MC we will follow. The speed makes it look like it will be done in 20-30 chapters. As such we get plenty of just super glaring plotholes. For example, female sidekick being surprised to see a soldier looking for food, but next chapter then knowing where a whole bunch of soldiers are actively hiding nearby. As well as us being told the UN sent fleets to stop the heroes but failed. No mention of other countries involvement or existence even though a country like the USA would be because their military base in Korea would have been destroyed during the heroes conquering of the country. The author treats the story as if the whole "world" is only South Korea. The story gives us little to no actual character development. Even when we get backstories its half a chapter right before death so your left in a more wow that sucks than actually caring. This isn't helped by the fact all the heroes, including the spear guy, come off as depressed edgy teens with overlapping personalities.  More of a loose summary for how the first few chapters play out below. Ch1-2 The first two chapters gives us what feels like an actual realistic answer to what would happen if a summoned hero comes back to his original world with the same amount of time passing there as it did in his isekaied world. And its awful. Basically his life has completely fallen apart and he is left with nothing. No family, no friends, hated or ostricized by any of them who were still around when he returned. Esentially abandoned by society as a whole he decides to just raze the world, presumably because he has given in to the darkness and either gone insane or just wants everyone to suffer and understand how he feels. After doing this we find out that there are a handful of other returned heroes who feel the same or had similar enough experiences to work under him. Interesting and unique concept that felt in the vein of Rooftop Sword Master. The first two chapters are a really interesting read even if you completely stop there. Ch3-6 Now during the rampaging and murder that was graphically shown in the first two chapters some random teenager sees his family get murdered before dying by the protagonist of those chapters. He get's isekaied himself and comes back as a hero (and basically becomes who we follow from chapter 3 onwards) with basically the exact same murder hate borner the other heroes had expect unlike them he has someone to blame. While the other heroes had no one to blame other than the vague concept of society for taking their "home" and everything away from them. New fancy spear boy hero can blame the sword hero and his underlings as they literally killed his family. So now he fights while talking about morals and justice and you know typical garbage good guy mc stuff while murdreing the other heroes. Despite being a total hypocrite and being exactly the same as them whether he realizes it or not. Really puts a bad taste in your mouth after the interesting take we got in the first two chapters. New spear hero then fights and is super strong and easily kills the hero he fought after a short half chapter flashback of what his life was like after returning. Then he moves straight to the next hero and it looks like we are just straight up in rinse and repeat mode until he meets the sword hero. With the added point of his spear can transform into any random thing like a spear shield (kinda like a poor mans rising of the shield heros style) which just looks like two spears glued together like a cross that can somehow stop a dragons attack. Feels like pure plot armor so his weapon can transform so he can easily walk over the side heroes that get no screen time or development. Explaining all the other glaring problems these few chapters generated would take even more paragraphs and more into actual point by point breakdowns so I wont.
