Thanks for the chapter, nice battles, but you got messy there. The battle with Electabuzz is interrupted with a section against Raichu that isn't even used later on... Also, Dragon Claw is an odd way to finish this. Charmeleon had activated Blaze there, no? Why not use the boost and do a fire move?
I don't really get the people that are annoyed by this format, saying that it's annoying to read. You read the poster's name, skim over the tags (if it's a new poster), and read the message, and it's barely different than reading any other conversation.
So you originally wanted Ulbert to be his friend, but changed your mind due to readers? You seem to have written at least some of this chapter before changing your mind? "Fortunately, Jacob still possessed the memories of Ulbert's body. Making it easier for him to speak Japanese"
What? Arnold only turned on the guy after he betrayed the group. He was the one to convince the MC to bring him in initially, before he knew the man was scum. Arnold wouldn't have accepted the MC murdering the guy without any evidence, and after there was evidence he had no issues with that.
What you are making up is an issue out of something that really wasn't wrong of the MC, not the details of the event. The MC doesn't want to go solo, he wants to form a group of strong people, so he does need to care about what others think of him and his actions, he needs to be trusted so he doesn't have to watch over the group all the time, to make sure they don't betray him. He knows that Arnold has potential, so he cares more about Arnold's feelings. Besides, he isn't so strong to ignore numbers, and for some reason enemies grow stronger than he expected them to based on his prior experience.
Rather disappointing. The MC shows no skill of his own, completely depending on the system. That's often the case with system novels, but at least display some sort of sense. He knows that his siblings are scheming, yet "I called a taxi for you, and paid for it" and he can't be bothered trying to think what his sister may be plotting? The moment he gets the system, there's basically no point to anything. There's no sense of tension when he doesn't need to put in effort in order to profit. And whatever goal he has is unknown, at least to where I've read it (c35). The romance hasn't developed yet, but I doubt I would've cared either way, considering it's based on super love at first sight or something. The MC and FL seem to be obsessed with each other while knowing absolutely nothing about the other.
The story has a decent premise and it would be an ok read if it was more consistent... Numbers, abilities and the timeline itself get confused. Events are different from what MC experienced first for an unknown reason (so that it's not too easy for the MC, probably, because nothing he actually did should've brought the change). People set up organizations and camps within days of the apocalypse, a couple of weeks in and we meet someone who had been surviving for a couple of months in a grocery store, the MC is supposed to get an ability every level, but he gets to level 4 and has only 2, then he gets another ability when he levels up to... level 4! He keeps people that he knows are waiting to screw him over because it's entertaining, or believes that they are useful for now so he waits until they actually do damage before he deals with them... He complains that his group doesn't have enough strong people, but when he meets a new person he does everything to make the idea of joining his group look as unappealing as possible by acting like a huge cunt for no reason - he doesn't even really need all the supplies he steals from the person. He excuses it as a test of character - meaning he wants someone desperate and won't stand up for themselves.
The MC wanted Arnold to trust him. If he went alone with the guy others know he doesn't like and returned saying he died, how do you think others would react? Even if they don't have evidence, they would never be at ease around him. The girl suffered because she stayed with the abusive partner. There's plenty of meh about the story, no need to make up stuff.
It's possible, but he'd also be wasting time with that. He can't buy all that much with pure cash, as he'd need to go to each place in person so it's a waste of time, plus it's way more suspicious, so he'd have to bank it. What will he do? Withdraw the money only to deposit 100k times more shortly afterwards? Then get arrested because the serial numbers repeat? He could withdraw a thousand dollars and then deposit that so he would have tons of spending money, as long as he doesn't spend too much in one place, but it's also possible that he did that in the background and it's just not significant enough to mention. The story has plenty of issues, but that's not really one of them.
The writing is decent, but that's pretty much it. It's either exactly following the original plot or developing an awkward romance between a rather uninteresting MC and Alex, and it's not awkward because they are 13. They are basically telling each other that they are interested but there is no progress in their relationship, and it's attributed to the MC being either dense or scared. And he is supposed to have gotten master manipulator from the gacha, so even if he isn't using the skill to manipulate, he should have the observational ability to realize the situation. The scenes from the show are left with no change outside his comments that don't actually contribute anything besides characters nodding and saying how smart he is. And whenever it's not about the original plot, you randomly get paragraphs of flowery descriptions that really don't fit with the whole "it's a modern family fanfic" vibe... Really out of place and kinda pretentious.
I've read up to c32 and I'm going to stop here... I generally like system fics with OP protagonists, but... I dunno. The system itself is simply one that tracks and allows for some progression, so there's not much to say about it, but what makes this fic frustrating is basically everything else. Issei becomes a shittier person than he was an the original. The fic tries to make it seem like he is no longer a pervert, but what's the reality? Sure he dumps his porn and no longer peeps, but he also dumps his friends. Yeah, they were perverts, but he wasn't that different, yet he doesn't give them a chance to go through the same experience, he just treats them as irredeemable trash. On the other hand, he is still a pervert. It's just ok because the girls like it, except there's no consent, he pushes forward and it's accepted. As if the one time he "goes slow" and doesn't go all the way with Akeno is supposed to make him seem like a better person... There's no interaction between characters of different groups, even though they are at the same place. Nobody mentions how Issei has fallen maids, the kendo chicks are just there for a bit, Issei may want to be the harem king, but it's odd that he just accepts Sona being into him while he is obviously lewding the two chicks, before he knows she's a devil. Even after that, there's no talk about "harems being a thing in the supernatural world". There's also a bunch of inexplicable things that happen that don't make sense. He gets ambushed and attacked by two fallen angels, where Rayray would've tried to get his sacred gear after sensing that it's actually strong, she originally wanted to kill him because she believed it was a waste of time. She might've even wanted to recruit him. Then Issei forces them to become his maids out of nowhere. Mittelt is knocked unconscious but then completely forgotten. And why the hell did they kill Asia? At least give some explanation! She was originally brought to extract her gear, what's the point of killing her on the first day? And Issei didn't even bother telling her about shit... The latest thing that I just couldn't get is that Riser seems to have an instant cast super fast super strong attack that can take Rias out of battle instantly. I mean, he fires a fire bullet at Asia, and Rias moves to intercept but she doesn't do anything except close her eyes and prepare to lose. SHE'S THE KING! The rating games are not fatal and if Asia takes the bullet she is just out of the game, but if Rias got hit then everything is over. If Riser was even capable of it in the first place. IT'S JUST SO DUMB!
It's nonsense. There's no sense of scale, there's no explanation to the world, abilities or anything else. I've read up to chapter 6, but I doubt it gets any better than the typical get strength boost, achieve something, get mocked because people don't know about cheat, everybody *shocked_pikachu*
