There is absolutely no R18 in this story at all! None, Zero, Zilch, Nada, Nothing! Almost all of the characters are actually weirdly absent of anything resembling sexual desire as they see it as a distraction from their goals of power and strength. None of the characters are even described in a sexual way. Most of them are not described in much detail at all, for that matter. So, with all that being said, why on earth is there an R18 tag in the description for this novel?! It's false advertising!
It's pretty good! There are plenty of stories where they talk about the main character being "crazy." But most of the time, that "craziness" is not real craziness and is just being willing to do things that most other people would not be willing to do because of their moral character. So, the "craziness" is really just evil by another name. But this main character is medically categorized as insane and locked up in an asylum. His thoughts don't make sense. And that creates a lot of comedic moments! The translation for Webnovel Comics is also infinitely better than that of other places. I'd recommend at least giving it a try!
I personally wouldn't mind a dark and sad ending to this story. It would actually feel pretty fitting. If he never is redeemed and after killing the God just suffers for eternity by fighting as a mindless beast until he reaches the peak and finds nothing left to fight. Then he takes his sword and kills himself because he can't handle doing nothing. And then the novel ends like that or similar to that. Not every story has to have a happy ending. I'm not even sure what a happy ending for this novel would look like at this point.
You forgot about that?
I think two useful things for the town would be a building for Recruiting/Summoning new citizens/NPCs, and a training Dungeon where the NPCs and players are able to level up with relative ease and safety. I say this because they did mention that they had a problem with not having enough people to fight off all the undead that came from the portals without the assistance of the higher-level players of the alliance, and they did have to help the lower level NPCs to kill the undead to level up in the raid. These buildings would solve both those problems. You could make it a Summoning Gate that brings willing NPCs to the Forest kingdom or a Recruitment building that generates a certain amount of new NPCs. Either one could be used maybe once a day with the results based on Luck, maybe by using Mana to summon, or maybe use certain materials to influence who comes for the gate or who is made for the recruitment building. For example, you could offer up materials liked by certain races to entice them to come, which would increase the odds of them being Summoned. And as the quality of the kingdom goes up, the quality of the Summoned/recruited NPCs goes up as well! I think that would work well! Especially since the forest will continue to grow as time passes. Just a thought.

I'm writing this review as of chapter 55. I am definitely enjoying this novel very much! But that doesn't mean I don't notice the flaws it has. The flaws do not greatly detract from the enjoyment of the novel at this point, and they are things that can be resolved in later chapters. However, this is my review, so I must mention it. The problem is that not enough background information is given at this point about the world and the main character. The novel just starts by saying that the main character is a transmigrator on his 3rd transmigration who led quite ordinary lives before. So he has no issue with his new situation. You can't just drop a bomb like that and not give any follow-up information! Also, the worlds of Cerulean Planet and Earth are presumably the same from context, but that isn't made clear. If they are the same, why don't they just call it Earth? Also, what the hell is the High Continent? You drop that as the setting for the story like we're supposed to know what and where that is. We don't. Please explain. It feels like they skipped the explanations to get on with the story faster. But the thing is, that background information IS story. Other than lacking context that seems rather important, I'm enjoying it so far.
The author has to get his Tiers straight.
I think that was trying to be zen, but it just sounds like nonsense.
