    Reincarnated into the game universe genre.
    The two protagonists are hilarious in their dislike of each other, and that they’re engaged is fun. They have to pretend they’re very much in love, as they form an excellent party. I really enjoy the reincarnation into the game universe genre, (no surprise, I’m editor for One Man Army) and this one is fun. Translation is hard going, as the translator and editor make a point to explain everything. Losing out in immersion, gaining in fidelity to the author and source material. (which I respect)

    Try it, and you will like.:D

    Listen to the octopus—it knows what it is talking about. :blobhero:

    The dynamic between the two leads is what makes this novel shine. Can't wait to see how the romance develops. :aww:
    The game reincarnation setting is a bonus. :blobok: A must read! :blobokhand:

    Here's a thread linking to the promo manhwa so helpfully scanlated by a discerning and benevolent NUFfian: https://forum.novelupdates.com/threads/ending-maker-promo-webtoon.108849/

    *wonders what Count Bayer's test will be*

    Author once again did it. Story about people in gaming circle. :blobrofl:

    If it will be on the level of previous works then excellent. :aww:

    And summary reminds me of situation at the start of authors previous work, can't help it.
    Valhalla.
    Valkyrie.
    Tae Ho opened his eyes roundly. It was because something struck his head.
    Valhalla. The place that could be called heaven in the north European mythology. A banquet where warriors that died in glorious battles gathered!
    “Wa, wait! Something is wrong! I’m a pro gamer!”
    He wasn’t a warrior. In addition, he didn’t even remember dying in the middle of a glorious battle.
    However, the Valkyrie just tilted her head at Tae Ho’s protest.
    “Progay?”
    “Pro-gamer!”

    Yes, but a lot of author notes and editor notes. Lots of info on Korean slang. :D Does make immersion difficult.:p

    is the game in the novel the game of the same title, making it a parody?

    anyway the novels of this author all start out great and then ends up really boring or just gets worse and worse until it ends.

    i finished breakers and the ending was a mess. it was really good before that too.
    i couldn't finish vahalla saga either because it was really boring.
    dungeon maker was really interesting at the start and the TL eventually gave up without a reason, but i read on the raws and dropped it too because it gets really boring. the ending isn't anything to talk about either.

    well you are reading a korean novel and removing the slang makes it worse. same for cn novels.
    why do you think translators for anime don't remove/translate the -san/sama/kun/oneesan/ect ?

    My problem was this..

    [This series is 90% machine translation (MTL), 1% editing for easier readability, and 9% actual translation and research for the character names and settings. I don’t speak a single word of Korean, but I really love this series so I’ve decided to translate it in hopes that it will become more popular.]

    Which put me off, I was going to read it but that makes me doubt it..

    Can't speak for Valhalla Saga but Breakers has a happy ending, tho the later half of the story is clearly rushed. Still overall, a decent read.

    The promo manhwa, you mean? Has been scanlated. You'll find the links in my quote below:
    Doesn't feel like edited MTL. The TL is pretty dedicated and makes sure not to miss out any nuances/terms, so there is no problem with readability and flow (for the most part). All KR terms and slangs, when used, have explanations so the reader won't be confused. Overall, a decent translation even by Human TL standards.
