I love this manga it is a really cool idea and the powers are great, the characters are also really well done and it's one of my favorite manga. Can't wait for Tomin to kill the Bright Practitioner who NTR'd him.

This is one of the Real gem among manhua,Art work is fantastic and story packs heavy action and cold blooded killings....

++spoiler alert++

The Story start as, A Don (young man) is our MC ,he is a cold-bloody fighter  (though he is good hearted guy).In a bar, He helped a girl who is about  to get raped (by killing of gangs who try to rape her) and admitted her to hospital,He went way back and slept in his room and next thing when he wake up,he is  in "another world".Accidentally he join the fights and somehow he got Dark marial art power (A undead guy gave to him  ,martial art has levels and can be powered up similar to RPG).........Then as story progress he also become stronger and stronger.................


As you read more of chapters , it's true that story get bit confusing and boring. also lacks so much developement in many area (At first everything seems best but later author seems to focus only on fighthing area and lack innovative ideas other area ). Author also overly done in story, like stuffing many plots in one go.

Good story, but the character build up is poor but the overall plot keeps one engaged like an action packed film. I was hoping if the author had given the protagonist a backstory why he turned a Assassin in his previous world, or why he was brought to this world, it would be even more better. The mainplot is in disarray, so most tend to leave the story halfway through. By the end, i was confused that why the author never mentioned the reason for his world transfer. But overall it was fun to read. By the way, the art work could be better, maybe a bigger panel and better budget could have taken away the drawbacks.

Well, it's a good read, but still has some weaknesses:

  1. it's quite repetitive. (Or maybe it's just me, because I don't appreciate fighting scenes that much in general, no matter what manga, so it basically looks all the same to me)
  2. Tomin is always planning and scheming cautiously, but he fights recklessly.
    Whenever he plans or schemes arrogantly or poorly, then you know, that he will loose the next battle.
    That's a shame, because you always know what happens next and there is no thrill anymore.
  3. The tactics in general are pretty one-sided in most cases. Generals of enemies are almost always stupid, arrogant and ignorant, so you already know who will win. Besides, a lot of tactics aren't really foolproof and have a lot of openings, but the enemy is almost always behaving exactly as predicted by Tomin (or his generals). On the other side, Tomin can always surprise his enemies.
  4. The fighting capabilities of martial arts practitioners aren't really obvious and it feels like they get adjusted for the current scene in order to artificially increase the tension.
  5. A lot of scenes aren't really shown to the end. It often looks like there are missing slides, but when you look for the chapters elsewhere, it's still the same. That also makes the story feel slightly rushed.
  6. There are too many side characters, I couldn't remember most of them and had to guess very often once they didn't appear for more than 30 chapters. It could be my goldfish brain, though...

Yeah, I'm dropping this

The art is good and all but I prefer the original art that was used in the first few chapters, it was refreshing and unique

The story and plot is overall good, as usual, but Its predictable and frankly, it's too detail-oriented on the war aspects, there is not much romance so I'm confused why this is a harem, furthermore, we didn't get a clear grasp on the power system nor do we know how strong the MC is

There is a S2 of the Manhua and a Novel, but I doubt it would be that special or interesting, the best plot twist they could do is kill off an important character, this even felt rather rushed earlier on, but it's taking forever for this war which should have only lasted a 100 chapters or so

Character development is barely on there, the most we got is from Tomin, and he developed in a bad way, he's showing uncharacteristic behaviour compared to earlier on, and these are negative behaviour not fitting of his persona

This is ok I suppose so I'd rate it as;
Art 8.5/10 ~ 6.5/10
Plot/Story 7.5/10 ~ 6/10
Characters 8/10 ~ 7.5/10
Story Development 6.5/10 ~ 4/10
