    I generally don't get emotional while reading but damn did that tug my heart!! It is so very satisfying to compare and contrast how human our MC has become, and how happy the dragons are. Especially after really understanding why our MC became inhumane.

    I still get irked that the translator decided to keep the Korean names of the seasons as is. I feel like with the exception of "Spring" and maybe "Winter", the English translation of seasons would have a smoother overall feel.

    There is little screen time for their full names and following English convention it would be Summer Yu, or Autumn Yu, etc. I just feel the romanized names feel a bit jarring in this case (even though it works for most Korean names).

    Yeah exactly.

    Some names that work in Korean (or Japanese or Chinese) just sound weird when translated directly to English.

    Translating names is one of the dumber things a translator can do, a name is something you keyword people by, you don't need to know what a name means because it doesn't change its function in any way, you only need to put a footnote at the end of the text in case the writer is getting fancy with symbolism.

    translating names to literal english just so that you dont need to read foreign words is the dumbest take i have ever seen.....i dont see ppl call Japanese or any other Asian names by their english counterpart IRL....if ppl can say names as is, u can read the names as is.....

    Imagine translating the name William Smith directly into Korean with the words "Desire Helmet Blacksmith" or maybe you could try and make sense of it and translate it as "Protecting Blacksmith".

    Hello Guys! I have yet to start the novel. But on the noveluptades's a harem tag has been added for this novel?
    Was there a mistake or does the mc get a harem?

    As of the current translated chapter, it absolutely doesn't warrant a harem tag.

    If you count a single crazy woman as a harem then yes, sure.

    Locked the harem genre so it can't be chosen. If anything did change I guess let one of us know so we can unlock it.

    Harem wars bro. Shipfights get really autistic. Be glad that what you saw is mild in comparison compared to the shit you see elsewhere. I'm still seething at the ending of The World God Only Knows and remembering the ending just makes me mad.

    what harem tho? Gyeoul is too young and probably sees him as more of a parental figure (and also the objective of her mission). Kaeul was just vibing off of Bom and hasn't shown any indication that she has legit feelings towards the MC. Yeorum is mostly a tease, but if she really did like him, I'd imagine she'd be more shy about it (going off of her shoujo preferences). His ex from another timeline has become a muscle lady (lol). The only character that has indicated any romantic feelings towards Jitae is Bom. The rest are red herrings, I tell you.
