Kim Dokja does not consider himself the protagonist of his own life. Befitting the name his parents gave him, he is a solitary person whose sole hobby is reading web novels. For over a decade, he has lived vicariously through Yu Junghyeok, the main character of the web novel Three Ways to Survive the Apocalypse (TWSA). Through Junghyeok, Dokja has experienced secondhand the trials of repeatedly regressing in time, in search of an end to life-threatening "scenarios" that force people to act out narratives for the amusement of god-like "Constellations."

After reading 3,149 chapters—long after all other readers lost interest—Dokja finally resigns himself to the story ending. However, he receives an enigmatic message from the author, stating that the story will soon be monetized, before his surroundings suddenly go dark. He swiftly realizes that fiction has become reality and he is now living through TWSA. Although he is the singular omniscient reader of the events yet to come, his success in the scenarios is not guaranteed—but perhaps his advantage will empower him to step into the protagonist role that never suited him before.

Ahh this seems to be a new addition in here and I was WAITING for this to be added.

Note that the webtoon just recently released a few months back and I will be writing my review for the 36 chapters I have read, not the webnovel.
So let's get to it now, my review might be a bit too long with some spoilers.

STORY: 10/10
This starts off with a simple yet exciting plotline that many readers might be able to relate to. Our MC here is an avid reader of webnovels and he followed one of them in particular called "Three Ways to survive the apocalypse" read more

Omniscient Reader isn't the first manhwa to bloom outside its home, few others managed to do the same but what separates it from the rest is the fact it's very unique and I've personally never read anything like this ever before

Story : Incredibly immersive and Exciting with amazingly written lore. The manhwa starts with our protagonist Dokja realising that web novel he has been reading for years is the reality now. Apocalypse striked, the world has fallen but he knows how to survive and what will happen next. He was a reader, reader he still is, but a reader who knows it all. The characters read more

Omniscient Reader's Viewpoint has finally made it to MAL!

This is one of the few series I can preach about until I completely convert the listener. And that is because I found ORV to be completely FLAWLESS!

Omniscient Reader is a pretty refreshing addition to the list of manhwas with OP MCs because now we finally have an MC who is BY NO MEANS OP in physical strength.

His utilisation of knowledge and wits to adapt to the world, deviating from the one he read about in the web novel, is what makes this story interesting.

Story: 10/10

ORV starts with a simple concept but quickly becomes interesting because read more

Both an incredible manhwa and light novel. Based on the LN of the same name omniscient reader is one of the best reads of the modern era. I truly recommend to anybody who is interested in fantasy even though it is not particularly over the top. I think explaining the plotline only hinders at your enjoyment so i suggest going in blind. Give it 5 manhwa chapters and if you're not hooked its not for you.

Brief Synopsis: Our protagonist is an average salary man who loves his light novels. During his childhood he follows a certain one for an extended period over multiple years until read more
