    Hello! Author here, and here is my review of this novel. There’ll be elements of bias since I’m the author, but I feel they’re all valid. Firstly, this novel follows a trope you’ve all heard of before. Classmates get reincarnated into a new world and they have to save it. Of course, the book does a little spin on some things, but you know what you’re getting. Secondly, the MC is a background character who is average at everything. His life changes once he gets his hands on an OP Skill that acts as his golden finger. He’s very pragmatic and calculating, but he’s not a genius, so don’t expect 1,000,000 IQ from him. Thirdly, it’s a progressive fantasy, so the story evolves (including the worldbuilding and many interesting aspects of it) the more you read and the further you go. There are many unique aspects of the book, and it’s very easy to grasp what it’s all about once you start reading it. I won’t spoil anything here, but I’d really urge you to give it a try. Of course, this novel isn’t for everyone so after the tenth chapter, if you don’t like what you’re reading, then maybe it’s just not your cup of tea. I’d like it if you were active in the comments and let me hear your thoughts. Please be nice and cordial since I’m a human with a heart too. Thanks for reading this review, and I hope you have a good time with the novel. Cheers!

    Good novel, The extra theme and setting might be a bit cliche but the writing is top-notch, some reasons why you should read this:-1. The MC might be a bit annoying in the first few chapters however he quickly grows and becomes fun to read about. 2. The novel isn't slow and we quickly jump into action. 3 It's a magecrafter novel so writing quality and English skills are guaranteed. 4. The side cast is all interesting and the world doesn't revolve around the MC. 5.The novel updates daily.

    this novel is good but after you read like 250 plus chapters it gets a little boring like it's relative 😔 like till ch 250 all the enemy's who have fought mc where so weak compared to the MC that it was a joke plus they all have the same reaction to his power like oh i can't Believe my eyes or no that was a fluke it happened to many times

    20 chapters in and what can I say, this book is a masterpiece, though i didn't expect less since it was written by magecrafter, it reminds me a little of Eminence in the Shadow, a perfect side character with an overpowered magical skill.Even though it's a system novel, it's not cliche, the characters are interesting and the world building is amazing, I can't wait to read more and see how the plot thickens.I recommend this book to anyone who reads this review, good job author.

    It is basically in the same class as tasty trash food. If you are fine with wasting your time and all the clichés you are used to and the weird reasonings or events that feel like the author had an idea and simply was rushing towards it rather than building and shaping a real world or a story that unfolds to them, it is a decent read.

    I can say this proudly, the book's nice. Although I'm still a few chapters in, it was enough to make me want to keep reading. It has a good pace, little to no errors, good scenes with room for cough cough disappointing the other characters' expectations... in d book.It's worth the read and time. Enjoy and Goodluck author!

    great writing, impressive efficiency, just not for me. It’s an amalgamation of existing tropes.

    Its alright, not my cup of tea though. Characters do not feel real and they are often idiotic. Somethings are illogical.

    Srsly? . I dropped this cause MC seems to be too merciful... He should have killed the phobio guy to gayn some EXP but instead He let him goo? TF?. I wasted my time reading this whole 5 chapters full of filler fights and all of that for what?? .. It's like a whole fight that should have been ended in 1 chapter being drag in 5 chapters.. Like srsly there's too many good scenes but the execution seems too tiring to read.. Every chapters seems to be fillers. The only good part of the story is when MC bully the dragon..Too much info dump... Tooooo slow phased! You have to read a whole 10 chapters or more to end a fight. Author seems intentionally stretching the story instead finishing it in 1 to 2 chapters..

    Review around mid 200s: The story was great and quite interesting until sometime after the full reveal of the MC’s OPness. After that, at least in the current arc, the elements of the story seemed diminished, forced, and pointless. It would be fine if the story didn’t focus directly on the MC, but it does. The author tends to drag out events with lots of padding. The MC’s values seem to change on a whim, maybe in reaction to the readers. Grammar: high quality with a couple of mistakes here and there. The author’s notes, meant to drive engagement, break immersion in an annoying way. First, most of us don't want to pay coins for these notes. Second, the author constantly apologizes for his mistakes but refuses to change or correct the problems. Seriously, don’t apologize for it if you're not going to change it. Also, readers aren’t always itching for a fight scene. What’s important is drama, tension, novelty, mystery, promise, and fulfillment. The latest scenes I’ve read sorely lack these elements. Those initial fights, even those ending in one sentence at random, had those aspects. The time outside of the physical fighting had even more of those elements and was, therefore, more enjoyable. Maybe I need to skip ahead to a future arc to get that tension and intrigue back, but I loathe to do so. (Note: Being told about the presence of and structure of arcs directly by the author's notes makes me irritated because it is also immersion-breaking. For readers, arcs are elements meant to be realized in retrospect or not at all.) I would likely recommend this story if it was an abridged version with the padding and author notes removed. The story has many worthy moments.

    Honest reviews are here.. [Extreme Spoiler Alert] This is a story about the whole group of teenager, 16 years old kid who all in the same class and been summoned to the other world to become their saviour against the dragon race.. The novel title has already described what kind of novel is this, "An Extra's POV" which is about MC who are hiding his true strength from everyone and acting behind the scenes.. Before arriving at the other world, everyone can pick the skill and class based on their Karma point everyone have.. MC who pick an SSS-rank skill: Doppel, which will be able to copy anyone skill with a limit of 100 slots.. But because he picked SSS-rank skills, which use up all his Karma points, he lost all other perks such as his profession/class and opportunity to pick multiple skills.. All his classmates have better proffesion/ classes (C-tier class the lowest and S-tier class is the highest) and multiple skill.. Mc is the only one who has F-tier class: commoner.. Because of this, MC basic stat is the lowest.. He gained 3 unallocated stat points (SP) every level up.. But later, MC got an A-tier class: Anomaly, which gave him 6 unallocated SP every level up.. And the higher the class, the higher the unallocated SP gain on every level up.. For example, there are an A-rank pets who gain 30 unallocated SP every level up and an S-rank summon creature who gains 100 unallocated SP every level up.. Yes, unfortunately, MC has a low stat point, which is one of the downside of this MC in this novel.. It is probably the author ways to balance MC strength.. If we not including MC basic stat point, MC is super OP with his SSS-rank skill.. He managed to copy almost all his classmates' skills.. And he even manage to copy other strong people, other races, Dragon, and monster.. He can also fusion the skill (combo the skill temporarily) or merge the skill (permanently) to save the slot space because of the 100 limited slots.. MC also created another persona, Ralyks, which is a cool adventurer who is overwhelmingly strong, righteous, reliable, always calm, and merciless toward his enemies.. Most of the time, he is in this persona.. The author style kinda like to dragging stuff.. He tends to drag most topics.. One chapter will stretch up to 5+ chapters.. The author will explain from all aspects, from MC POV until others POV (Including the POV of the monster.. Ex: hobgoblin).. The author will put many empty talk, the thought of EVERYONE (MC think like this and this.. Then other people thought this and that), and many useless things that just drag the story.. But what can we do? The storyline is that good to the point that many people can't stop reading it and fall by the charm of this novel.. First of all, I hate Esme (one of the female characters) because MC becomes pathetic, blind and idiot in front of her.. She kinda girl who can see through MC and also a super burden that need to be carried by MC.. MC totally broke his composure characters and persona in front of her.. [Once again, Reminder: Extreme Spoiler Alert] There are a few characters between his classmates that OP too.. The 1st one is Adrien, where he exactly act like MC which hides his strength from EVERYONE, and only MC knows his true strength, but the moment MC knows it, it is already too late.. Adrian already left the group.. He has SSS-rank skill: Creation.. Yes, MC can copy skill while his hidden rival can create the skill.. Right now, he barely has any screen time, but he kinda like bad guys who orchestrated behind the scenes and going to be MC strongest opponents.. Yeah, it kinda weird that MC didn't copy Adrien skill when he 1st time used it.. Probably not to make MC more OP than he already has.. The 2nd one is the reincarnator, the hero, Adonis.. On the previous timeline, MC is the strongest among classmates and plays an important role, but somehow, MC picked this guy, Adonis, to return and change the timeline.. Well, the reason is Adonis is quite weak, so the cost to reincarnate Adonis will be lesser than MC, who are strongest.. So, Adonis got reincarnated as far as the time rewind send him.. When? To the time he still a fetus in his mother womb.. "If" MC got reincarnated and because of the cost is too high, MC probably got reincarnated after they arrived at this otherworld.. But that going to be bad because they can't pick the skill and class again.. That their main reason to rewind the time, to pick a skill and class that will help them against dragon race.. So, the risk is too high.. Adonis has been the weakest, but change his life this time around and became a rightous hero with a powerful skill.. And MC is helping him behind his back.. Please noted, MC has no memory from previous life. Plus, he also doesn't know anything about Adonis got reincarnated.. Everything from Ch.1 until Ch.500 is awesome, the best, and almost perfect...... UNTIL CH500+..... Here is where everything changed.. From OP MC into a pathetic MC.. One of the MC skills is replicate himself.. This skill will divide the stat and level equally among themselves.. For example, a lvl.140 MC makes a clone (two body:real and clone), each will have 50% stat point and lvl.70, equally divided by two.. But what worse, apparently, when the MC clone dies, the stat point and level of the clone will be permanently lost.. Yes, around Ch.500, his clone died, and MC, who already has a LOWEST stat point, becomes even lower than lowest.. His stat and level got reduced by HALF.. Wow... So dissapointed with this development.. I, as a fan of this novel, almost become a hater.. I stopped reading because I couldn't read it.. The more I read, the worse the story goes.. I can't count how many times I am disappointed.. First, MC loses his clone, then his stat and level.. Then, he lost his chance to copy ALL powerful skills from MANY DRAGON.. Then, he almost died MULTIPLE times by the same creature, and MC desperately tried to kill it.. He acts like stupid and loses his cool and just bombarded his skill like a desperate kid who throws every object he found to villain without thinking anything.. His other persona, the identity as a Ralyks also been forcely reveal in pitiful ways.. He also have to sacrifice many of his powerful skills to grow stronger but I not sure if it worth it.. There are many thing happened after Ch.500 and most of it, I hate it.. The new dungeon arc, Ch.450-Ch.500 kinda like MC been play right into someone's hand but the ending of that arc kinda awesome.. But it already developed the uneasiness feeling there.. So, that is why after continuous irritate feeling after Ch.500, it getting worse and worser.. The displeasure and frustration continues to build up.. To the point that I can't stand it anymore.. Defeat after defeat.. Die after die (almost).. Got weaker and weaker.. Dear author, why?? What is these sudden abrupt of change?? The story also almost perfect before.. Seriously, before Ch.500, I was amazed by the storyline created by the author.. As someone who loves OP MC and this novel, I am glad I found these gems.. But after Ch.500+, I were like "What has happened??" I was very disappointed and heartbroken.. I try to continue reading but I can't.. It getting worse to the point that I scare to read as I don't want to become hater on something that I used to love it.. So, I give 5 stars before the novel getting worse.. It is my honest review.. I guess I will just stop being a fan for now.. Well, who knows, maybe one day's, I will pick up this novel again.. Yes, someday in the future..

    Pretty good, grammar is excellent, but the romance in this honestly isn’t good, at least at the point I’m at right now, it felt super forced and pretty cringe, not in the sweet giddy good way but I know that this is not a romance novel which is why I’ll still give it 4 stars. World building is okay, plot is interesting but the characters feel pretty shallow and I struggle to unferstand why they do what they do sometimes especially the mc but that can improve in the future as we get to know them more, I hope. Overall, a promising novel and I will continue to read it.

    I gave full marks to the story, but I am dropping at the 3rd Arc due my personal preferences. The writing quality is very good with minimal mistakes that are few and far between. Author keeps the reader in the dark about the story so as things happen they are fresh and satisfying. The things that got me turned off enough to stop are things most readers are happy with. 1. The constant line " I have to get stronger" is rammed down the readers throat sometimes multiple times over these small chapters. 2. The plot of him hiding his strength while trying to play both a strong character and the weak character around the same characters is one thing I myself have trouble reading for a prolonged time. For me there comes a point the drama to do so is an annoyance and it loses its appeal. Again most readers like this and accept it whole heartedly. 3. Because of his dual personality as weak and strong it makes most of the story just himself so it turns into inner monologue after inner monologue. Sometimes you get whole chapters that are an inner monologue. The monologues are well written and do add some to the story, but for me they are just too frequent. I didn't get far enough to see if or when Rey has a character growth as we are still only a couple months into the story. Overall very good story, just a few thing that affect me more than most, but keep up the good work.

    Pretty good and enjoyable novel. While the MC's opinion of others in the first few chapters seems shallow, forming strong opinion of peoples character from few actions, this does disappear quickly.
