PsyberRose: This is truly an entirely new take on any reincarnation novels out there.

Writing Quality: top notch, of course. Nothing much needs to be said here.

Stability of Updates: 5*

Story Development : Get ready for a wild ride in having your brain teased and twisted. Author does this magic trick of dropping hints then revealing them in later chapters which makes you go WHOA. REALLY?! Sometimes my brain hurts cuz I am such a ****** person. So many things happening at once and yet, so inter connected.

Character Design and World Background: believable, brought to life. Fantastic.

Initially, I did have trouble in the first few chapters to understand what is going on. However, stick with it and suddenly, you will find how everything makes sense. Looking forward to more revelations! Great story indeed.

Btw, I've posted enough of my my main series to partially clean out enough of the pure high school feeling if you're interested.

Right or wrong, I chose to set it up as your standard friendship/romcom Japanese style high school romance in order to build myself an opportunity to deviate from the form later on. View More

StenDuring: Breaking the fourth wall in another world.

This review is part of a review swap and valid as of chapter six.

This is a piece of fan-fic, and as such it's constrained by a number of border conditions. Restrictions primarily come in the character departement, quicky followed by world and to a certain degree plot.

It's also a bit problematic to review for someone who is unfamiliar with the Naruto universe.

As usual six chapters is too little for the story to take off, and in this case it doesn't really seem like the story even wants to take off at all.

We have a first person character who very much acts as the narrator. It's the usual cliché setup. Die and get transported to another world, in this case the Naruto universe which the main lead is very familiar with from before his untimely demise.

Did I write 'cliché? Actually the main character did. He comments the events as they occur from the viewpoint as a former reader of Naruto. Or rather he comments the non-events since the first six chapters rather reads as an introduction of every character taking the stage in an ongoing story even this reviewer knows streches over hundreds and hundreds of episodes. So we have a plethora of names you really need to be familiar with before reading this fan-fic.

As far as I've read there are a sequence of loosely connected scenes, but there's very little plot. A kiddie style romance evolves, and people go to school, and they eat food, and they throw friendly banter around, and they use their powers while fooling around, but they don't really do anything. It all feels like a smattering of slice of life moments but with even less story cohesion than those stories ususally contain.

The first person narrative makes liberal use of the ******* with tenses that come with the point of view, but there are a number of tense errors on top of that. The very first chapter also breaks the contract made by using first person point if view by inserting a few scenes written in the third person point of view. This is a pet peeve of mine. First person comes with a lot of narrative ******* at the cost of omniscience. The reader should only ever get to know as much as the narrator does.

Language is slightly non-standard English, but it doesn't disturb the reading all that much. The suspension of disbelief breaking commentary is part of this kind of story. You either like it or you don't.

Now for the stars.

Writing: Four stars. Swapping to third person, English that is a little off, somewhat shaky handling of tenses combined with brutally short paragraphs voids the fifth star.

Updates: Five stars. Six chapters is too little for an opinion here. I'm just handing out the full five stars.

Story: Four stars. It's fun to read, but the story doesn't really progress anywhere.

Character: Four stars: This is a hard one to assess. I'm not familiar with the characters, so I'm reading this so to say from scratch. As such the characters come out a little flat for me since I can't take anything for granted merely by reading their names.

World: Four stars. There's very little of it, and six chapters into anything I wouldn't expect there to be. Unless the author starts off by loads of exposition or infodumping, world is almost always going to suffer early on in a story. The alternative is ditching plot and / or character, which on average is a bad thing to do early on in a story.

Lastly, this is my review of the introduction to a fan-fic. I know too little of the universe to understand if I'm missing out on something that's implied. Read this review with that in mind.

Better as a manga than as a novel.

This review is part of a review swap and valid as of chapter 140.

We're having us a piece of romantic comedy with characters who really are rather hard to believe in. Halfway though I asked myself if suspension of disbelief was a problem or not. In the end I decided it wasn't, but it took some mental redesigning to do so.

If this had been a Japanese manga it would have been labelled as romance/comedy/seinen. You're not supposed to believe in the exaggerated characters but rather jump on for a hysterical ride.

Then this story works perfectly well.

So why my problem to begin with? Most likely for the stupidest of reasons. The cover is a photo. A photo is realistic, so I expected realistic. Had the cover been a cartoon I probably never would have done this kind of mental gymnastics.

One male lead with a libido if possible greater than his riches, good looks and corporate power. His personality is quite ****** to describe. A hunk of a six years old with a really big dick.

One female lead with an ego even greater than her good looks, martial prowess and business acumen. You've seen her as the female lead in every Disney animation the last ten years or so.

It's a hate grows to love type of story, but I would have preferred a slower transit. As it is now hate turns to love in one moment, which is rash even for this kind of story.

This far the story is basically split into three parts. One third male lead trying to hump anything female that moves and being beat up by the female lead, on third main characters falling in lust, or love, and one third introduction of potential problems for the new couple.

It's all rather fun to read, but the characters start weeping way too much as soon as the skirt chasing and beating arc ends. The characters were simply more likable when they were flawed.

Non standard English detracts from the reading experience, but apart from some funny, unintentional word-swaps it's not too bad. Just enough to understand that the author isn't native to the language used.

Now for the stars.

Writing: Four stars, for reasons given above. Using a spellchecker should be mandatory. Quite a few of the errors could have been avoided automatically.

Updates: Four stars. There seems to be a rythm of mass releases followed by a ten day vaccum.

Story: Five stars. Romcom develping as a romcom is supposed to do.

Character: Four stars. Started as five stars and dropped one star as soon as they fell in love. The slapstic comedy leads replaced themselves with their melodramatic alter egos.

World: Four stars. It's not all that much of it there, but this is quite honestly not a problem at all. I'm not here for the landscaping in the first place. A romcom needs character and plot, in that order.

Lastly, this story would primarily benefit hugely from a new cover. A light copy edit should make reading a lot more pleasurable. View More

You might want to clear the background for the review before you spew out something inane like this. I explicitly asked the author if I should proceed with the review before writing it since there were problems with the content. View More

I_like_2_drink_tea: Well I can understand y'all view point, but after the first couple of chapters and you realize you dont like the story or whatever, then just don't read it. Also the author already clearly stated that English is not their first language. Its not their fault there are some grammatical errors, and I'm sure you understand that as well, everyone makes mistakes.

Purple Dawn Till Dusk : dearest through the time

Oh, she's alive alright, even though she's not really alright...

Her boyfriend, or maybe it's just a friend, or even a crush of hers, however isn't any longer. He went to Tokyo and never returned. That's why you only hear her part of the phone call.

Both mother and daughter saw the disheveled girl on her bench. Kids take note of what's there, but adults often prefer to pretend they didn't see anything. Hence the mother got angry when her daughter turned around.

The main character is either locked up at home or in an institution, but made it outside albeit barefoot. In the end she was rounded up once again a short while after the picnic when she visited his grave a little further up the hill.

I know, it's vague. I deliberately left it open. In this case the feeling of loneliness and something lost was more important than any absolute truth. You picked that up which made me a happy writer.

Funny by the way; hadn't it been for the micro-scene with the two men talking at the end your interpretation would have worked just as well :D View More

Chryiss: Intriguing piece. It’s never directly explained, but I’m guessing somehow the girl is dead or something? It’s mystifying, but based on the end with the mention of graveyard, and the child who was the only one who saw her, I thought she’s a ghost. Maybe I’m wrong, idk lol. But overall, a tranquil piece with a touch of longing and loneliness on the girl’s part.

Ah but please tell me what happened exactly. Maybe I’m just blind, but the details were subtle to me.

I'll just keep on selfplugging and give myself a perfect score.

The writing shouldn't be of any concern, and at a completion after one chapter it's by definition stable.

The story comes with a clear beginning, middle and an end. After all, it's completed.

Are the characters worth five stars? I hope so. A short story doesn't give you a lot of leeway, but I've tried to depict different personalities within the liimted scope.

The setting is my home-town. I know it by heart, and eventual readers should recognise it from what's in here. I feel fairly confident in the world background departement.

Oh, and I wanted the EXP for a review as well. View More

Just your average shameless author selfplugging his own story. Well, and collecting the daily EXP for writing a review as well.

Science fantasy. Space ships and magic. Even dragons. Oh, and there's mecha as well. Any of the above central to the story? Naeh. Two men on a journey, however, is.

Is this an all five star story? Hardly. Thorough editing should yield a five star writing and it's updated daily. I'll collect those.

While I did give myself the other three stars as well I guess story, character and world is subjective. I don't see a reason why any of them should drop below four though. View More

Jane Doe goes Gary Stu.

This review is part of a review swap and valid as of chapter 111.

We're having us a dose of reinc story. Overdose to be more precise. No killing off another person by hijacking an adolecent body. Oh no. Let's spend several chapters literally in the womb instead.

The setup, however, is still the standard one. Woman dies badly and gets another shot at life. Fine, she gets reborn as a boy. Aaaaand she just so happens to timeslip two decades backwards in time while doing her reincarnation stunt.

While the author mostly brings the reader to the millenium shift there are a few awkward anachronistic details, but you need to be an old coot like me to notice.

This story turns the tables on how to handle a slice of life story. There is action in the extreme beginning, and some action in the earlier chapters. Then, halfway through the stiff one hundred chapters that are currently published, the author very clearly states that there's not enough slice of life. As a result the plot grinds to a halt.

I personally enjoy slice of life very much. For this reader it means that the second half of what's published is more enjoyable, but other readers might not agree.

It's a fun read. Interactions between characters come through good dialogue and a little less good internal thoughts and reflections.

So there's something bad about the story?

Yes. And it's a pretty big bad as well. While the supporting cast, minus antagonists, are overall well rounded and enjoyable, the main character reincarnates from zero to hero. It's even made explicit. We're not talking simply over powered here. We're talking faultless. Any existing flaws are of the kind that, if possible, makes the supporting cast like the hero even more.

Is that something bad? It's a hero after all?

Well, yes. It is bad. At thirteen years of age we have ourselves a super model male beauty, international level athlete, post-Einstein brain, never made a truly bad decisionever, loved by everyone who doesn't fear him and super intellectual perfect bloody damned god.

Anyone, and I mean anyone, who disagrees with him just made a horrible error. That's the best scenario. The average person who dares to have a different thought than our hero is a slimy, worthless, disgusting, good for nothing, inferior, incompetent, depraved and extremely quickly dispatched problem.

Gary Stu.

I'm reading this one for the side characters. Not for the main one.

The story is written in the third person omniscient point of view using the past tense. There are a few intrusive flashbacks, but overall the structure works perfectly well.

Now for the stars.

Writing: Five stars. Thats including my one star bonus on this site to compensate for the atrocious average English used here. There are a few tense errors and the English used, while perfectly servicable, is a little bit off.

Updates: Five stars. A little more than a chapter a day.

Story: Five stars. That's for this lover of slice of life. If you want instant action every page then this story is like watching paint dry.

Character: Three stars. That's a mix depending on category of characters. We have one star antagonists, and I mean the kind that wakes up every morning and goes shaving while saying: Ho ho ho, I'm so evil. There are five star side characters. Sadly we have a three star main character. Fun dialogue, fun awkwardness, but we're still talking wish fulfilment on speed.

World: Five stars. A womb, a school, a secondary school and a shopping mall. You don't need more for a good slice of life. Not even for over a hundred chapters.

Lastly, if you can get over the super perfect main character you're in for a fun ride of slice of life spiced up with a little action from time to time. View More

Just passing by.

This review is valid as of chapter 18.

Just drove by; heard a lot of noice in the neighbourhood and stopped to see what it was all about.

Taking the antihero for a ride, twisting the concept, deconstructing it and putting it all back together again was not what I had expected.

So you have your jerk ass 'I ain't anyone's hero' doing his best to avoid, well, becoming a hero. Duh!

At eighteen chapters we have a fully developed and finished story arc. It's a pleasure to read. A little terse, but it works perfectly with this story. Irony, sarcasm, deadpan jokes and a little love all mixed into an unholy mess of goodness.

Make no mistake about it. Our main character is most definitely the main character, and he's a selfish bastard. Luckily for us he grows up quite a bit as the story progresses -- he still remains a selfish bastard at heart, even though by the end he can't really say 'I ain't anyone's hero' without twitching at least a little.

A first person point of view story, with than angle used to the utmost. Yes, there are a small amount of tense and PoV -errors that can't be chalked down to playing around with the writing, but 'small amount' is the key word here.

Stars.

Writing: Five stars. Almost flawless.

Updates: Four stars. There are holes. There are reasons. I don't review reasons.

Story: Five stars. Basically superb.

Character: Five stars. Main character, main supporting cast al have personalisties. Side characters are excused for not having them.

World: The weakest part of this story, but still a five star delivery.

Lastly, I can only say one thing. Go read. It's only eighteen chapters. You don't have an excuse to not see this one through. View More
