"Aren’t we all just getting paid to do our jobs anyway?” They're getting paid? I thought they were all slaves? Where are they getting the fuel for a city sized steam engine? Shouldn't it require like an entire forest every day? "be dead within the month.” That slow? There's a lot that can happen in a month. C3: It sure did take Tyger a long time to realize why the MC had used an antidote. Though, I do have to wonder why antidotes weren't standard issue. Its not like they were strong enough to overcome Zombie Potion after all. C6: "I felt as if I had picked up what looked like an antidote to the poison in the wreckage" Other than desperation, I wonder what made him think that. C7: Ah, of course, in a world with classes, the MC must have ALL the classes. My expectations fall lower by the chapter. "For Rayne, with his “Wisdom Brain”, this task is as easy as breathing!" Of course it is. We wouldn't want the MC to have to put in actual effort. C11: So, since he took the wrong class' potion, how is he going to explain not being able to use the class skills of the potion he was supposed to take? C12: If its a 20:1 learning rate, and it should take him a decade to learn normally, then shouldn't it take him at least half a year? Somehow, I doubt it'll even take him a week. C13: Why pull out a real potion recipe to teach potion symbology? Shouldn't one of his books contain a full listing of the symbols and their meaning? It would definitely be more effective, and he wouldn't have to pull out his recipes (which he should have an ingrained aversion to doing, regardless of how dead he thinks the MC is). I wonder if the MC is going to let him live. I'm not really sure he'd care about keeping the gold grade potion's recipe a secret enough to bother killing the guy to retrieve it. Honestly, without sufficient backing, he can't really profit off of the recipe safely anyway. C14: If they've only been using the zombie potion for three years, then why would the senior members have taken it? Unless the doctor formed the bandit group himself, there'd be no reason for the leader to trust the doctor more than his senior members, nor any reason to poison them and then cure them. C16: Man, this series sure does require you to turn your brain off every time the MC's cheat is mentioned. C17: "the other was [Frost Sword Maiden] Ymir Spoglin, the eldest princess of the Omar Royal Family and also a top sword master!" AKA: Harem Member No 1. C18: If he's going to be so unsubtle about it, then what's even the point in attacking? He might as well use that time to run harder. Or does he have reason to believe that Pythius' reinforcements won't be at least as good as the guy he's wasting time on killing so noisily? C20: The poison being expelled was extremely obvious and his opponent is practically guaranteed to have antidotes on him that are proven to be effective against this poison. Why did he die? C21: "it failed to draw the eyes of these two big shots." That's a lie. C23: My eyes just kinda glaze over when the story starts going on about its psuedoscience. If the author wants magitek, then he should just call it magiteck and be done with it. I was wondering why he insisted on remaking the antidote that he wouldn't need for three years. It would have been nice if the author had given him an actual reason to have done so rather than simply having him do it and then having it immediately save his life from something he couldn't possibly have known he'd need saving from. That aside, he's still surrounded by the catalyst. How's he going to make it out of town without triggering the poison again? C24: "he had to admit that the person who had set up this layout was brilliant." Or, he could remember that this plan was what allowed the bandits to kidnap innocent people and force them into slavery only to be later murdered for the sake of political profit by said mastermind. Why is he so certain that people will be able to identify him? If he gets far enough away, solves the parasite problem, and changes his looks a bit, it should be nearly impossible to identify him. C25: This is clearly the Prince's super secret ambush plan. How would his sister and rival for the throne being murdered during it not be laid directly at his feet by anyone with a functional brain? That aside, I'll be surprised if Metternich doesn't turn out to be from the crashed ship. C26: Its difficult to describe how silly steam powered motorcycles sounds to me.
