    I'm going by the info on NU.
    There are 510 WN chapters (complete) and 4 LN (on going) - these four currently translated; which I just finished reading, and I need more... o_O

    no translation, but supposedly the wn is more messed up than the ln, tho i think like in a crazy way instead of a good way
    he goes legit insane, even more than usual, and he either kills his harem members or they die on their own. either way its some tragic shit.

    Well, the ln is better in this case then. The balance between genius and madness shouldn't disappear or it will just turn dungeon defense into generic bullshit relying on scat smut or all manners of insanity rather than a smart MC surrounded by smart characters

    Oh, I misunderstood. I thought you meant webcomic rather than webnovel. Disappointed.

    From what I heard from Shalvation the webnovel is like the super rough draft. The current translation is like the third iteration, and the one that makes the most sense.

    Mostly, WN suck because they try to be different from the LN instead of keeping a natural flow.

    WN comes before the LN as far as I know, so I don't understand how you get the WN trying to deviate from the LN...

    Well I don't know much about WN version but someone told me this :
    In WN they were lovers. He took her virginity ( don't remember where it was....was it in a hot spring???)

    In the WN, the MC joined the opposite faction of the one in the LN.
    Also the main princess antagonist is a lot weaker in the WN than LN.

    The MC's mental health is much stronger than in the LN. At the end of the web novel the MC's sanity broke and the ending was super depressing.

    It is speculated that the LN will have a happy ending.

    The MC never struck me as particularly sane in the LN. Smart, yes. Practical, pragmatic, cunning, charismatic, sure. Sane? Nah, he's broken to begin with.

    @Nepuko
    she was raped before he got her
    how does he even takes her virginity?
    in the web novel was she not treated as sex toy by her family?

    If he took her virginity, then obviously she was was not. (but there's more than one "mouth" so who knows...)
    Tho it would be cool if WN was translated too. We would have 2 different Dantalians, as if watching parallel universes. Plus it seems WN MC was much more san than LN, and relied on his powers more...
    Even if in the end, LN > WN, but it's still would be cool

    True that, usually while making the LN the author will have a team of advisors/editors to get help from while they are mostly on their lonesome while doing WN. It is also true that usually when starting to write the LN they have mostly written about 1/3 to all of it on the WN already and there might be parts they want to change, remove or add stuff to. Like how in Overlord WN Albedo doesn't even exist while she does in the LN, and personally the yandere wife addition was great in my book.
