Who am I kidding, this manga is awesome, just read it*
Story : 8
While the manga is fairly new and fresh, the story is progressively getting better with new side-characters with believable motives , relatable personality and overall looking very promising. To be fair, the first few chapters so far wasn't much for advancing the plot, but take it with a grain of salt since I consider these chapters a Prologue for grand up-coming story waiting to be told. While the manga may appear edgy at first glance , the author did a good job portraying how difficult and unforgiving the world can be, especially a world with magic and monsters. The gore, the unfortunate things that happened are explained properly with details. Hell , I will even go so far as to say that I would probably be like the MC or even worse if that happened to me, and I think that many people would agree with me. There are some moments of levity , and the show doesn't take itself too seriously that it leaves a disdainful taste in your mouth. I'm pretty excited for the incoming arc and the story is looking very promising.
Art : 10
The art is absolutely gorgeous. I myself believe that art and artstyle are subjective depending on the people perceiving them , so you may think that I'm being biased, and I do agree. But holy hell is this freaking beautiful. Check them out for yourself and see how you like it.
Characters : 9
As I mentioned before in the Story section of this review, this aspect of the manga is very well-done . The MC is a total badass in of himself , but the things that make him interesting is that fact that he doesn't kill for glory or money or anything artificial like that. I don't want to go too deep into the spoiler territories but the way he views himself , his actions and the world around him is definitely very refreshing and unique. I'm sure the author put a lot of thoughts into the MC ( I also find him to be somewhat relatable in this aspect but this is irrelevant) .
Enjoyment : 10
What can I say ? The gorgeous artstyle combine with intense, detailed and highly gory fights along with beautiful background scenery makes this manga a blast to read. It is so enjoyable that I found myself rereading the few chapters available for numerous times now , and I have not gotten bored of it (and probably won't). The story is coming along very nicely , and is getting hyped up so badly that you just can't wait for the new chapters. This is such a feel-good show (Different from the healing show) that you just want to enjoy yourself and your life while being on this one ride of massive fun.
Overall : 9
I've had fun a lot with this manga and I certainly can say for sure that this is gonna be big in the fantasy sub-genre. It's not too edgy that you cringe to sleep, but it is dark enough to keep you interested and invested. The world-building is amazing too, though we don't know much about it, there are hints here and there and it's really fun to try and think about all of the subtle things happening in the background. The characters are fun to watch, somewhat relatable , have reasonable motives and their personalities tend to defer from others, side-characters are also given some backstories and such. The art style is highly-stylized, detailed and the fight scenes are awesome. This is some top-tier manga here. read more
This manga is about a guy who slays goblins. That's it all.
Now being serious, this manga is one of the most edgiest thing that you could read in a long time. Also, holy fuck, the adventurers in the first chapter are useless, like even a fucking one-handed blind deaf beggar could even do better. The goblins killed everybody but two and raped two of them (one was dead, fucking green boys), also, they like a fucking breeding farm because there was a pack of green babies. And yes, he killed them in a edgy way. Every goblin killed, another edgy way to slowly kill the seriousness of a manga.
Fuck, I was nearly laughing because you could see what will happen easily. Like, these guys are going to die.
By the way, the priest is like "Well, they nearly raped me and I saw all of my party's members die or be raped or both. Yeah, I'm going to follow this edgy as fuck guy and keep killing goblins".
The edgy as fuck guy is a high level adventurer killing some weak-ass goblins. This is marvelous, he has fucking plot armor because of this.
If I can remember, there is edgier manga so, this isn't the zenith of edgy things.
Meh, this a funny manga anyway. It can be considered comedy. But D-Frag is way better. Go watch D-Frag.
