that's what the skeletons want us to think
>>
>>135726451
>>135726576
Exactly, it's because the slime and other characters are likeable that the story becomes good.


About the fact that they have similar powers and similar topics, that doesn't really matter, ever. I mean you wouldn't be able to read manga if that was the case, what matters is what you do with the story, setting and characters.

That demon lord one and the Goblin are kinda annoying because they're edgy and not really likeable. Especially the demon lord
>I hate everyone
>Except the hot women I fuck because why not

Or the Goblin
>Huh you shouldn't go and rape people

or

The worst. This killed Rance for me.
>>
>>135727322
It's more like
>It's OK if the MC does it
And I agree, it's the worst and it honestly kills it for me.

Another example would be Shieldbro and Wordmaster, both are incredibly OP and both have asshole sides(Hiiro even more since he's an asshole just because), but they don't go around doing shit like that and being catalogued as the new messiah.

Honestly the goblin and demon lord strike me as some sort of supreme power fantasy and it's not even subtle, so it bothers me.

I'd say Skellington from Overlord is in the middle of both so he gets a pass too, and the story doesn't really portray him as the messiah but as a morally grey guy, which kinda helps. He's still a huge power-fantasy like the rest but since the story is handled better you can enjoy it.

Read the WN then you'll understand why your statement is wrong. It had potential, but it squandered it.

It's shit. It's only a little different because the MC is a slime but the rest is no different from Overlord, except that it's worse (Overlord also wasn't that good to begin with).

>>135727720
There's a LN too, anon. WNs usually get worse overtime because no editors. Or not worse but you can notice they're not really polished.

LNs use the WN as a draft and are usually better in every way, the way they're written, pacing, edgy stuff and all that.

They're all power-fantasy, and morally grey isn't quite right as one of the main things about these series is that the so-called heroes are just as, if not even more evil, than the real evil guys. It's more of a 'I am totally justified to use any means necessary because the other guys are total assholes' anti-hero than it is morally grey.

Well yeah but the difference is that while Naofumi and Hiiro don't get praises from being assholes Goblin and Demon Lord do truly horrible things but get praised and their dicks sucked.

I'd say Naofumi and Hiiro are anti-heroes, the others are plain villains that the author justifies into acting that way.

>>135727869
>>135727948
I've time to spend so why the fuck not.
No powerful antagonist as enemy, no clear actual end goal coupled with the fact the Nazerick is the strongest faction in the world with a bunch of them standing at the top of the top making it super fucking boring because you know it will all end smoothly for them anyway. The rest of the appeal is building faction and army, which is shit to because the Lich kid is way too over paranoid and his way of doing thing is thus constricted, not to mention he's retarded too. Is Nazerick so lacking in minions or something they've to sent out the floor bosses for negotiation and scout thing? Couldn't their low level minions blend in just fine as long as it doesn't indiscriminately attacking people? What's the point of capturing the lizard men anyway when you've plenty of force to spare and the top brasses alone could form a strike team and deliver blows that crippled countries without a single casualty. And so forth... his decision making ability is bad so there was no enjoyment in reading it for the building up power and become a force to be reckon with. Most girls are so-so and the best girl rarely appear so reading it for the girl is also a no.
Final rating: nice illustration/10

Just saying, it's really all the same shit, just varying degrees of it and how they present their actions.

Had the setting been slightly different, I can see slimebro doing some evil shit to survive/win.

How is rance any different from any mythological hero? He's basically Gilgamesh.

Which is why I said in the first place.

All of them are basically the same thing, the difference is how the author makes use of the setting, story and characters.
>>
>>135728788
And nobody gives a shit about Gilgamesh. I didn't even know who Gilgamesh was before Fate.

Also mythological heroes are genuinely disliked by anyone from modern times, they were assholes, rapists and murderers. Which is why they get toned down and made into modern-day hero standards when adapted to movies or some shit like that.
>>
>>135728463
Yeah you won't like it much if you prefer a quest towards an end goal. It reads more like a collection of short stories with people getting wrecked, in between silly hijinks of overpowered characters without common sense.
>>
>>135728815
And I'm saying slimebro's action is somewhat of a copout compared to the more edgy SI power-fantasy. Slimebro's 'enemies' kinda want him to do those 'evil' things while the other stories had the 'heroes' outright trying to kill the SI by any means necessary.
>>
>>135728887
>Yeah you won't like it much if you prefer a quest towards an end goal
Nah, I guess not. The same thing happened to Log Horizon, after volume 6 or 7 something I just lost interest because nothing really happened, it's all world-building and characters expanding their force and power. It just lost the appeal because they're all serious and stuff but everything is stale. Were Overlord and LH written like an adventure SoL instead (like gifting?), have more comedy, more emphasize on hijinks and wrecking shit, it would be a lot better.

Rance isn't "good". You're supposed to enjoy him, not respect him.

Do something good when you have something to gain don't mean you're a good man, just means you're a selfish prick with something to gain, which is basically the entire character of Rance.

To be honest, just got done watching Overlord.
I'll pick this up and read it. But to be honest...

>Tfw you played Classic Runescape
>Tfw you felt exactly how Momonga did
>Tfw no friends left

I could actually sympathize with the protag. I imagine those who played WoW had felt this even more, especially those from high level guilds. I even saw the attention to detail in the series (e.g. Ains not bringing is God-Tier Armor to fight a Mind-Washed Shaltear because if he had lost his gamble, his enemy would have grown stronger).

I'll value your opinion after I read this.

Well yeah, it's not like you can craft chromosomes and organic tissue just out of slime, but you can still take the form of whatever you want. Though you technically aren't male or female either way, you can still shape yourself however you wish, be it a cute big breasted slime "girl" or a featureless Dr. Manhattan-esque "male". Though it goes without say that the rules and mechanics of it are different for every series they might appear in, I don't expect the slimes in Dragon Quest to behave like the ones in the Monster Girl Encyclopedia for example, but slimes in general can take the shape of just about anything possible, provided they possess some degree of sentience. The title "I woke up and turned into a slime monster" immediately makes me think that in that situation, I could be a slimy loli one minute then a gelatinous caricature of Dirty Harry the next, I'd definitely be getting as much entertainment out of it as I could.

Remember that Gamer manwa /a/ constantly talked about and then shut up about forever and ever, amen?
Even it has a shred more originality than this shit.
If it was just one instance of it then it'd be fine but there's literally 5 copies out there, possibly more. All of them are recent, follow an extremely specific formula to the letter, and are a fucking BORE

At least shit like Tate no Yuusha goes out of its way to be somewhat original and work on making characters the reader can somewhat care about while forming some level of drama between them, no matter how forced it's still better than this shit.

Character wakes up as, I don't know, a horse. Then he does horse things instead of leveling up into a dragon or whatever. Doesn't become the demon lord, doesn't win wars by himself, doesn't become immeasurably powerful for no discernible reason. He just gets to be a better horse and gains upgrades from Rocinante to Red Hare to Sleipnir until you're like holy shit, look at this fucking stud, he's a horse among horses.

He's also ridden by a cute knight girl with a lady knight rape fetish who is constantly disappointed that she can't find any orcs to "lose" and "get punished" by and that her horse is more interested in horsing around than dicking her.

WAit, didnt you just complain about how powerfull the faction was and that they could get away with anything?

Now youre complaining that they are having difficulties setting up a country? which is it?

>not to mention he's retarded too. Is Nazerick so lacking in minions or something they've to sent out the floor bosses for negotiation and scout thing?
Did you miss the whole thing where its a test to see if 1.- they are competent enough to go outside without creating massive havok.
2.- its also a test to see if they can learn new shit
3.- its also a test to see if they arent going to betray him.

Its pretty much a corporate Slice of Life book with a power fantasy coat of paint on.

These are the difficulties Ainz has to overcome.

Re: Monster is told like a diary from the MCs perspective always, which sucks balls specially after the orgies start.

Slime is told from a narrators perspective.

Sometimes I wonder which is a better read.

The narrator perspective or first person perspective.

Narrator seems more popular, first person is easier to write and understand.

First person perspective is constrained because you are only exploring the MCs personality. If you are stuck with a Shitty MC then the whole narrative blows.

Narrator led, you can attach yourself to other characters that get developed, even if the MC sucks balls.

The failing of the story here is that the antagonists are never really that threatening themselves once the fight is actually underway. At most, they could just have the 'potential' to be really scary, but are too dumb to use their abilities correctly. Or they just have overwhelming power and that's about it. Then the antagonists come in two shades; total assholes who deserve what's coming to them (or forcefully corrected in one or two cases), or misunderstood, "morally grey" types who get converted to the good side or die sympathetic "deaths" (they may not even die in some cases). I mean, Leon and Clayman are pretty much big examples of this. Leon is built up to be really menacing, but was good all along and his value in the story greatly denigrates after his first major fight. Then there's Clayman who, it turns out, just got fucked up by Leon on the latter's mad quest to save his waifu and only wanted to hang out with his friends and be happy or some shit like that. Even the final antagonist gets out of all this just by being born fucked up and being given a chance for penance in the MC's stomach.

I guess the author wanted to try and make his villains "multi-facted" by giving them their own perspectives and not "entirely" evil if they're a major character, but they're just uninteresting in the end and ineffective. And I'm not just talking in comparison to the MC, but to all the characters allied with the MC. All the big guns on the antagonist side are pretty ineffective and unskillful compared to anyone from the good side, their only saving grace being how much raw strength they have. The only fights I found interesting were those that came from the "lower" tier within the MC's subordinates.

The story isn't really good with antagonists. It would have been better if it was just the MC and his friends fucking around and influencing the world, which the side-stories are doing. It's better like that rather than as a plot driven story.

Ironically being part of Rance's harem is probably the absolute safest place for anything with a vagina in Ranceworld. That place fucking sucks to live in if you don't like being on the giving or recieving end of rape.

And Rance is never shown to be a good person either. He just happens to save the world repeatedly because it lines up with whatever the fuck he wants to do at the time, or he gets convinced into doing it. Usually with the promise of more pussy to crush.

>>135738497
Based on that info (if it's true) here's my little theory:

Project Eden was created to save humanity (or the people that are willing to pay for it) by taking them to a safe world and Yggdrasil and other DMMORPG were a test in creating avatars for the people to inhabit, though I'm confused on how magic was part of the avatars, did they possibly find the NW wild magic and martial arts and refined it into ranked magic and skills. Ainz (or Satoru) backstory is going to play a larger role, he'll either be the son of someone deeply involved in the project, either he's father or mother may be a researcher (maybe the woman mentioned) or maybe the CEO of the company funding the experiment, but he was a illegitimate child or something of the sort. It's also probable that only certain people can be transported (probably something genetic my would be my guess) and reason why they're nit just making avatars with god level powers is because there's probably a limit to how much power the bodies can handle.

The questions that this would raise to me are as follow.

Why would they send out incarnations to save humanity in not human form?

What purpose does it serve?

For what reason would they want to save humanity if a thriving human populace is already in place in another Planet/Dimension

If it isnt a real planet dimension and its just a virtual thing, then most of the characters really are NPCs and the world building doesnt matter.

and so on.

>Why would they send out incarnations to save humanity in not human form?
They're not trying to save the NW they were just tests to see if they could transport someone. Has to why non humans, they probably wanted to see how the human mind would adapt to an aliennody and plus if you create any kind of avatar to inhabit why would you make him human and weak when you could make yourself more?
>What purpose does it serve?
If they are sending out players to save the NW (which I doubt) they probably want to prepare the world for their arrival.
>For what reason would they want to save humanity if a thriving human populace is already in place in another Planet/Dimension
They probably don't want to save "all" of humanity, just some people.

“Alright, at least you should still have the Saint Beast’s inborn Terror Aura !” Sue Lin ground her teeth, her hands beginning to flitter about, curling the kitten into a ball on her chubby palms, then smoothly did a standardized pitching action commonly seen in a baseball tournament, throwing the white kitten in her hands into the forest with all her might……..

“战斗*!! At least scare two rabbits dead senseless and drag back to me!” (TL: *Original text is literally “fight” in English)

And thus a bitter cat’s shrilling scream cut across the peaceful and quiet forest (?!). It was akin to the staff in a zoo throwing a live chicken into the tiger’s den. Once the kitten landed it quickly began to jump up and run, stringing along the beasts that suddenly appeared from nowhere." endquote.

Now I can't stop reading them and every single one is nearly identical but I can't stop. Once translations fall off the series I'm reading I get extremely depressed. Its like a drug in written form.

She's one of the best bunny girls I've seen. Her character's interaction with the MC never stops being charming.

Learn how to read moon runes and you'll find about 90% more WNs.

I was seriously considering it after reading the translated parts of Tanaka. It hit the right spot with me. However, after about five minutes of fucking around with translation software I realized that it would require work so I'll just lazily read the translations no matter how bad the engrish is.
Thank you, translators.

Being a slime or something else doesn't actually make a character more interesting. It's all about personality and being able to not be overshadowed by the side characters.

Its a balance, and its always hard to judge if it serves the story well.
Like Kaze no Stigmas MC, where he's just max testosterone the whole show, compared to the monster musume MC who gets violated in every sense of the word every second of the show.

you dont watch monster musume for the guy anon

>>135766640
which is the point I was making
you make the MC too interesting and you just steal the spotlight from the girls. You make the MC a guy in the first place and have more than two other important characters that are men, its likely yaoi by that point.

I think New Gate is the best out of the RPG manga so far.
