    Definitely a hidden gem on this website. The writing quality (grammar etc.) is very good. The characters are quite dynamic and I really like the world building until now. I really hope the author doesn't drop this.

    Objectively_Wrong

    I am being harsh on this novel because I enjoyed it, and I would certainly like to see it get better. I will talk about my main few peeves about this novel. First, there is absolutely no tension. There are no special points in the novel that make your blood boil or you feel excited. The MC is just invincible, such that you know heโ€™s never going to lose. When overpowered is a tag, you would expect to be a kind of face slapping novel right? Wrong. And that is a kind of segue into my next point. Second, I am not feeling any direction really. Perhaps that is because the story is still in itโ€™s opening parts, the story is just meaningless babble for now. The MC has no purpose really, he just wanders around, with his students or some other people. In reality, this is probably what he is trying to do, but itโ€™s no fun watching an MC without purpose. Third, just a minor peeve of mine, the name of the novel is Professor Kal. Yet, he is basically sidelined for a while as some of the higher status characters discuss, and his students go off on adventures of their own for what feels to be a greater part of the novel to me. Even though he is in certain scenes, his presence is barely noticeable as a reader. Fourth, I have just realized this as of writing the review, but Kal has made no progress. Just like in a certain manga, Rent-A-Girlfriend, I thought it was good just because I was having fun, but looking back, no progress was made. The only substantial things were Kal getting a job and taking in a student. Everything else has basically not mattered at all. Fifth and last, one of the most minor things, wording is kind of funky sometimes, but those were in the earlier chapters, and those problems have mostly gone away for now. Now, to talk about the good parts of this story. The MC is a great realist. He doesnโ€™t do things without benefit for himself. Next, the side characters are given the time they need to shine, they have distinct personalities. However, the problem with this, is that people get bored easily, and I tended to skim over such things. More good parts are that there is almost definitely a deeper plot happening here, but if there is no payout after waiting all that time, I doubt Iโ€™ll stick around any longer. Basically, there are situations with time put into being read, but there is no sufficient payout to justify that reading time put in. I feel like author needs to make these situations have more payout for the reader, for spending their time reading all this, because I have only felt minor payouts in the form of small jokes, but I havenโ€™t found anything exceptionally interesting or comedic. Alright, I should end my tangent here. Iโ€™m being harsh on this novel because I want it to improve, of course, thereโ€™s no denying the possibility that it has already been improved, since I havenโ€™t read to the latest chapter yet. However, I would still like my thoughts to be known. Writing quality: 4/5 Story development: 2/5 Character design: 4/5 World bg: 3/5

    I just blazed through the entire story today and the quality of the story is amazing! The character interactions are depicted really well and I think that the personalities are introduced organically. I'm looking forward to how the story develops. Author, please keep up the good work!

    Professor Kal is a story about Kal, a lich who hid his phylactery in another plane, granting him pseudo-immortality and a lot of power. He decides to explore the world since he hasn't left his cave for over two millennia. Mildly interesting story, however the execution left much to be desired. Writing quality is below average, there's a lot of awkward writing, small mistakes, and some of the dialogue is very cringy and unrealistic. (3/5 stars) Story development is quite bad. It's a typical overpowered protagonist story, where the main character is a teacher. The concept is somewhat decent, but the execution was quite poor. There are constant POV shifts to people I don't really care about. We have fights with said irrelevant people that makes the whole thing even more boring, especially when the main character is basically God. While a lot of stories have annoying POV shifts that completely ruin the flow, and makes me skip a lot of chapters, this novel is especially bad. Instead of separating the POV shifts and making them small, the author will release them in batches, so there's 2 - 5 chapters straight of different POVs. I find myself skipping several chapters at a time. (2/5 stars) Character design is meh. While the main character is comedic, and the dialogue is rather interesting, everything is bland. Every single one of these characters have very bland and clichรฉ motivations. It is very hard to get invested into any of these characters. It feels like you are watching a play when you've already memorized the script. (2/5 stars) World background. It's rather bad to be honest. Theres very little information about spells and alchemy, aside from "use mana to make spell" or "combine ingredients until you get a cool colored potion", considering theres a fair bit of that in this novel, it's rather annoying. Aside from that, the author has very little world building in general, and almost exclusively uses exposition dumps in other POVs. (2/5 stars) Overall, a somewhat interesting concept for a novel but sub-par execution. Characters are bland, writing quality leaves you wanting, story development leaves you more annoyed the further you get into the novel, and world background is quite bland as well. I give this novel 2.8 stars out of 5.

    The author struck a perfect balance needed for a story with an OP MC! Carnage and gore is a huge theme and no side character is safe! So the MC is a lich (aka the peak of op-ness), but the secondary character, the one with enough potential to have been a main character in something more classic, is a boy named Ryan. This kid has it all: A rare darkness affinity, undead teacher, coincidental encounters with every major character, a romantic love interest. Basically, he's the epicenter of the plot. However, setting it from the perspective of the Lich removed clicheness and offered far more perspective. I love the way this is being done. Furthermore, I really love how the magic system is so intuitive! Nothing is explained in an info dump yet I completely understand! We can just skip all that boring stuff and go right to the CARNAGE!!!! Oh yeah! Every minor character seems like a legit person that could develop into a major character or villain (even though they are usually ground into meat paste in the next sentence). Hahaha! WARNINGS: -copious amounts of blood and gore -1 r*pe scene -horses getting killed by pocket-nuke This might be the 2nd best review I've ever given. Hidden gem indeed. The only problem I have is that the POV switches are more conducive to an update schedule and not a binge like what I just did.

    Only bad thing to say about this story is the update frequency. Everything else, writing quality, story, etc, is great. Only other things I'd like to see is more background on Kal pre isolation.

    a fantastic novel. has a light bit of comedy as well. Well thought out. MC is an extremely well written character. This is much better than most of the other works I h e perused on here. background world building writing quality, all excellent. granted the character won't develop much, its in his nature, which is expected and is completely in line with the story. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND giving this a good read.

    Honestly I'm loving this story. Professor Kal is a riot. I don't really mind the slow update schedule since you actually put a lot of effort to having good Grammer. I think I've see like one or two mistakes in the whole book so far. Really enjoying the story and can't wait for more

    good. the novel has decent world building that doesn't info dump whilst still giving you the necessary information and the character design is excellent. definitely a hidden gem, the only gripe I have is the updating stability but that is understandable considering the author's work schedule.

    Everything in this novel is great, stories great, characters are great(specially the MC, not one dimensional like the rest of the original authors in this website who copies Chinese authors characters, which just ends up a poor imitation of them, which is quite honestly embarrassing). The chapters are long which is great. The chapters format is great (very convenient to read on phone). The world could be fleshed out more though but that can be fixed in later chapters. The only problem with this novel, is the update for chapters but I guess itโ€™ the price for quality. PS Authors who are reading this, learn from this author on how to make an OP character in his story, be interesting and great to read. One of diamonds among the trash in this app.

    I personally see no flaws in the story, characters, or world. The author has written a true neutral evil anti-hero and itโ€™s beautiful. For a undead all the main characterโ€™s actions make sense for the way he should think. I look forward to his character development and wonder if he will find any shreds of humanity in him left over from his previous life as a human and how that will affect his goals in the world.

    I already wrote a review but I just took a huge blow from the awesomeness of your story with chapter 99 so here I go! I absolutely adore your work, your words, your universe, your characters, your plot. I mean isn't it too much of a great story? Just how far do intend to go with this creativity of yours? Every description just left my brain mushy with gory pictures and I'm startled to see how much I enjoy it! Please oh please, keep writing ๐Ÿ–คKal ๐Ÿ–ค 's story! Author, you're doing such a great job!

    This is a seriously great novel. Gotta love the main lead and even the way all the other characters relate to him. If you have ever watched rick and morty, this is seriously similar. The rick is complete eith portals and a dubious moral compass as he manipulates his morty. The morty is completely pulled along for the ride. They have their little spats where the morty tries to separate himself and do some good in the world. But in the end he is pulled along for all the escapades, he even occasionally lets loose old women who then proceed to destroy stuff. 10/10 novel. Only improvement could be 30 chaps/day.

    The story is amazing. The interactions between characters is well done and the personalities of each character is well developed. Furthermore, the world building is described in detail. My only problem is that the chapters aren't released often enough. I understand that the chapters are a bit longer but all I want is a chapter released every other day at least. Highly recommended story.
