    As of chapter 310. Writing quality is great. I think the dialogue is smooth flowing and realistic to the setting and period.Desctiptions are also niche, there's never too may unnecessary adjectives. I really love the story and there's lots of mysteries to be uncovered. The characters are easy to imagine and very diverse in appearance and personality. The powers are cool. I really like the main character. I think he's a really interesting one. I don't really know how to articulate my thoughts on him but yeah I like him and I am also fond of the supporting cast. All in all I think this is probably top 3 on the platform. ๐Ÿ‘

    I use to be a fan of system novels, but with there being so many I just got bored. But with this story, I find it so addicting from the comedy down to the pure writing style. I really love novels that use superpowers without a system. That's why, this novel, inhuman warlock and Dimensional Overhaul will always be my favorite!

    I started reading this two days before this review and let me tell you, ive binged all 288 chapters currently released. This novel is so far my favorite Novel on this entire platform. The brilliance of the Background, character development, and overall the writing in general, speaks leaps and bounds of wgat separates this masterpiece from the abundance of writing on this site. There are no info dumps and the characters pasts as well as the worlds past, come gradually and are expertly implemented inti the story in an ebtertaining and shockingly perfect way. Also may i commend the author for writing the mc so well. You by far made the correct choice in making the mc so edgy, it solidifies the uniqueness and masterful complexity of the novel. The plot twists constantly keep me on the edge of my seat and reading for hours. The chapter length is perfectly sized to not be too long nor too short, but right in the sweet spot. I am personally very excited to see what you will do with Hanahโ€™s charcter. I could go on and on about how perfect this novel is but i will never explain it good enough to do it justice, just know that you should read this. You will not regret reading this absolute masterpiece, but keep in mind it takes time for the development of everything, but you will see how that only makes it even more perfect.

    Where do we draw the line between good and evil? When can a villain's violent nature and blood-soaked past be used for good? A lot of readers get hooked by the carnage or the humor. Indeed, the interactions can be humorous, but there are deep moral dilemmas too. The author isn't afraid to give us a pure evil MC. He's even added some coding for prejudices about race and mental health even though the main focus seems to be on the morality behind actions. The MC kills for fun, but loves his family, and probably will learn to love others too. Mega Girl has the outer appearance of doing good, but this might be due to her mysterious conditioning and not her own inner moral compass. There's an overarching moral question hidden outside the mechanics of their superpowers, and behind the curtains of the comedy. I never thought I would enjoy unpacking it, but I am! All the strong people in this book have a flaw with their morality that changes how we can perceive their actions. It's fascinating! I'm up to ch140 and I can't wait to see where this goes. Now, judging the writing itself, the gender pronouns he/she sometimes get switched, which breaks immersion. Also, the world building seems to dumb down political powers to make individual characters seem smarter, which is a little lazy. The high-class academy gets attacked by villains way too easily, imo, but that is mostly the oversaturated market and exposure. I still enjoy every bit, no matter how cheesy or "edgy" 9/10 would reccomend. It's just one step away from being as good as Super Minion on Royal Road.

    Here is my opinion after chapter 59: This novel is among the bests in webnovel. I can guarantee it. The story and character designs are the very best. Correct me if I'm wrong but isn't Gary the best ever?! (readers will understand me). The writing quality needs to be improved. The author messed up the pronouns quite a few times... by that, I mean her/him pronouns only. Other than that. A more consistent update would be better. At least 1chp/ day, so webnovel standard is reached. That's all the flaw I can say. The characters in this novel are so fleshed out. You will feel the difference between this novel and every other novel on this website.

    Pretty good so far. Interesting enough plot and characters. There are only 6 chapters at the time of this review, but the novel does have potential.

    guys guys guys. its a hidden gem, trust me. I went in with low expectations, but this is truly a good read(i know, a rare occurrence on this app). Somehow, author manages to make the edgy mc not cringe(mostly), and, the comedy hits. Whether it be poorly named superheroes or actual jokes it manages to make me laugh(also a rare occurrence on this app). give it a read, also, give it say... 5-10 chaps before deciding if you like it or not. That was enough time for me to like it.

    Getting some my hero vibes if Deku was an OP serial killing psychopath. So far I like it, I am also wondering how the MCโ€™s family history ties into his psychopathy. Keep up the good work author!

    A great story so far and everything but I just want to ask does Hana actually end up with that Julius guy I personally think it would be better if Hana also gets together with Riley (they not blood related)

    tbh I didn't expected anything much from the summary but when I started to read it, i was genuinely surprised by how good this was. The Comedy is on point as well as the Simple yet complex characters not to mention it have the best character relationship and parallel I have ever seen in a while (talking about Riley and Scarlet mage). everyone should atleast give this a 1 chance.l

    Frankly, I adore this. The edge was, admittedly, a little too much to handle at first, but if you're a lover of dark humor & so on, you'll enjoy this. I would not read this if you expect high-quality writing & high standards overall. First and foremost, I think everyone can agree this is pretty much a comedy and yes, Gary is a real G. The author has, in my opinion, improved from their previous work (Hermes System) as this seems to be more fleshed out, unique with how the bizarre the characters, and so on. I don't usually bother to read majority of things on Webnovel because they seem to be... highly similar to each other i.e. system novels & etc. This, however, made me glad I searched the power rankings, which led me to this gem. A very good read if you want to laugh yourself off.

    his is really a work of art. Here we really see how a bad person should be portrayed, a true villain is like a Joker with super powers and fully aware of what he does, I feel the loyalty because the protagonist is portrayed as a pure sociopath and I also see many underdeveloped potential in the story. unfold in countless ways. I feel anxious for what is to come. (PS: author, please don't screw this up.)

    I usually do not write any reviews but for this novel I just had to because this novel isn't just unique it's also very funny. Overall it's definitely 5 Stars. I'm currently at chapter 20. Furthermore it is very well written with almost no grammatical/speelling mistakes. I can only recommend you to give it a try. And author please keep it up! You are doing a great job โ˜บ๏ธ

    A very good read. There are 32 chapters at the moment and I binged them all. The sibling relationship is good, the characters so far have been pretty cool and the main characterโ€™s personality is absolutely amazing. Never read anything like it and I desperately need more.
