    It's a bigger problem that they don't just outright say that than that they rate it as a 1. If they outright say I hate this novel because the main character is a douche there is nothing misleading in the review.

    I'm now going to binge read @Lachiel's reviews even though I'm not going to read any novels he reviewed.

    EDIT: nvm, it seems he didn't review everything on his reading list. Hmm, there should be a function to show the reviews made by a user.

    I just search to see if a work I am considering reading has one I don't actively search them out. In his absence I look for other members that are active on the forum. Being active here gives me a clue as to their tastes and personality which helps inform how to take their reviews.

    If it's only 1 volume, that's just a short story, easy to read. It'd be faster just to read the story then read somebody's review lol.

    For me i read the review of novel that i try to read or search new novel, even if the review is bad i try to read few chap first. If you still like the novel then it just the one review it have the different point of view.

    So basically i think dont put so much trust on review because every people have different point of like or view.

    but yeah it woud be good if someone who review it already read much chap or vol so the review will be precise

    DBWG the mum was a bitch, but it makes sense. And you're talking about MGA like he came out of the womb murdering everyone he didn't like, but I'm pretty sure he didn't kill during the first 100+ chapters.

    ??

    BTTH MC is still a virgin. MGA/ATG have rapists, but in both cases it kinda makes sense.
    First time he was drugged, 2nd time he got drugged by 2 people to rape the 2nd, and he escaped the drugs and raped the 1st.
    He raped Chu Yueyan or whatever her name is so that he could return her to her previous power, which was 20+ years of hard work.

    As far as I know he doesn't stay that way. I don't that he does, but I have heard that he loses his DT status. However, I don't know that he rapes. Given that early chapter it probably happens at some point, but even if it doesn't I still dropped BTTH because nothing in it was something I wasn't getting somewhere else. PMG as trashy as it can be sometimes is at least entertaining me

    Yeah, someone said that the BTTH character has his first time with ... well I won't say. It could have been someone trolling me but it seemed reasonable. Also DT is sort of Japanese slang for virgin if I'm not mistaken.

    I imagine he will probably rape someone at some point. Even if it is 'to save her.'

    Wouldn't surprise me either way, but as I don't read BTTH anymore it doesn't matter to me.
