    i just read half way into chapter 3 and i immediately know that the world he “traveled” back to is infact one of those shadow worlds where past events repeat themselves. can this plot be anymore transparent? -_-

    This videogame-like story arc is kinda stupid. I hope it ends soon. We all know they will pass this “test” after some trouble so lets just get on with it already.

      It’s average. For a manhwa it’s on the plus side of average. As a game environment it never hits the immersion of Praise The Orc and relies on “skill analysis” to quickly end fights. The author throws in whatever inspires himself in the moment to enrich the boring politics and harem setup. Nothing would surprise me, unless he creates stamina drinks from those green plums to save the estate. Romantica is obviously going to help them.

      Go ahead, downvote me I don’t care. I’m a fan not a dumb fanboy like you!

      And in almost every movie and manga (shonen espacialy) the protagonist win. By this logic why are you even reading anything ?
      It’s the how that can be interesting.
      And on that side this manga is nice.

      first of all - what “video game arc”?  If you mean the fact that the Shadow Worlds give gamelike status messages - that’s what the entire story is about.  Likely most of their time will be spent in future “video game arcs” after this “video game arc” ends, so if you don’t like that trope, you’re in the wrong story.

    Hmm, I really like most things about this manga but this story arc is really only to set the MC up so he can really start down his path. It is starting to drag the overall story down. This kind of story arc should be later in the story. I hope the next two chapters do the following two things; a) Finish this story arc successfully b) Reveal a primary plot point. Something that will tie things together and provide forward momentum for the main story line, ex: A main villain or a benchmark goal for the main story line that cannot be achieved in a single story arc.

      After rereading my previous comment it appears to come off as rather arrogant. It was not at all my intention to look down on the author. I apologize to those of you who have interpreted it that way. I am a fan of this story and the art is really well done. My comment was out of a desire to see the story continue. Please see my comments through the persona of an excited but anxious fan rather than a grumpy old editor.

    mmm it seems this shadow quest is passing upon a crux… hopefully we’ll discover some new hints in the next 2 chapters (speculation).. that knight hate Desir, and he doesn’t hid the fact. probably behind the whole mess\issue our MC party has to solve

    Interesting at first but when they go to the first dungeon it pretty much gets way too political and boring

    Getting the impression he knows less than he should, for a reincarnator. The quest / shadow world dynamic is also unclear. It seems like his Esteban friend from the past was real, but the people of this shadow world are NPC copies. If a shadow world successfully recreates a past horror, does that enable it to create a stronger horror like the dragon in chapter 1? Or it’s just a storytelling tool for “quests”

    Interested to see if Desir gets more abilities besides analysis when/if he wins the quest reward. For a team-building manhwa, ARMSBS is better than Ernak, but less involved than Dungeon Master or Scholar’s Reincarnation

    Why are in the newer versions the sides cut?
    I think it disturbs the reading flow and it’s even separating in the middle of a sentence.

    First off - I like this one. Always eagerly waiting for the next chapter. But there’s one glaring plot hole that always bothers me - why doesn’t he seek help? At 1st he was just a commoner which noone would take seriously. But now he’s got enough connections to people openminded enough to believe his story and offer help. So why the stand alone complex?

    • jorva 6 Months, 1 Week ago

      That’s not a plothole at all. Do you really think that they would believe that he came from the future and knows what’s gonna happen? Why would they believe a a low tiered magician who just arrived in their academy?

    Don’t tell me he planted the rats in their training room himself, cause he knew there would be a swarm of them in this test? xD That would be quite a fun development :]
    On the side note, I hope the story would be like ToG here - making use of test rules to propell the story and not just focusing on the tests. So far it’s doing a rather nice job.

      @Cimerea what do you mean the world still doesn’t know? they obviously know the characteristic of shadow world so they create party / teach student to prepare for it. no matter what if they failed the test on shadow world, the part of the world will be occupied by the shadow that no living being can live in there.. that pretty much spells doom for me if they screwed it.
