    The latest series translated by myoniyoni, Kill The Hero is about the sidekick guy being sent to the past after the hero is revealing his ambition to rule the world and kill the sidekick. In this apocalypse novel, the hero and the sidekick was the only guild that wished to end the game, while other players wished for the game to last forever as they gain benefits from exploring dungeon and growing stronger. for non-players, surviving inside the game is almost impossible, and it is possible that the player is the only one who had potential to end the game. Because he is sent to the past... I don't know the MC motive at this point as there are only 4 chapter translated by now.

    Anyway, enjoy this second chance novel.

    Read the first 3 chapters and I'm pretty interested in this novel. However, I'mma forget about this novel for 1~2years before returning. 1chapter/week is too much for me

    Interesting novel, so far I just hope it doesn't goes like the Swordmaster Healer. Beside the time travel thing is guetting old, even so the novels seems interesting.

    Just read the first chapters and it seems to have some potential. I am not a big fan of the once a week release schedule though.

    I like so far, but I hope the MC picks up some real allies he can trust. It will be more interesting with true supporting characters.

    Screw that. I want to see an author actually stick to his guns and play the story as it's set up. If the entire basis for the MC's character is not trusting people then he should stay a loner until the end. I'm sick of loner MCs with groups. It's ridiculous that the biggest loner MCs aren't actually the MCs who describe themselves as loners but cultivators who never describe themselves as such and do it accidentally.

    Sure, but usually that happens because characters need a direction to grow emotionally. Emotional growth requires other characters to interact with as a catalyst to the character development.

    The truth is that forever-loner MCs are (generally speaking) boring and one-dimensional if they don’t grow as people. They NEED to change, and if you start at a point of mysanthropy, guess which direction is left to go?

    Sadly becoming powerful, leveling up, and succeeding with revenge is not a character arc. That’s plot, not character development.

    A lot of cultivation novels confuse plot for character development, so it’s not surprising that Xianxia has so many loner MCs.

    I’m not saying that forever-loner MCs are inherently bad, just that there is a storytelling reason why they tend to become boring over time unless you introduce companions. If the plan is for them to be lone wolves to the end, then the story is probably better suited to vignettes and not a sprawling 2000+ chapter epic.

    A character being a loner doesn't actually stop them from interacting with other characters. Even in this story he interacts with plenty of people. Then there's what tends to happen in xianxia. The MC makes friends and such but then moves on at the end of the day.

    I can't say whether the character would get boring or not as I don't think I've seen an author ever seriously attempt it. I have seen characters pretty much keep their same character throughout the story and it working. A lot of cultivation novels have their MCs settle into a personality at the beginning of the story and act according to it throughout the book. Or LMS where Weed doesn't really change his personality.

    I generally get why it happens but I still what to see an author attempt it at least once.

    "Emotional growth" i not only becoming a good person by our current standards, in a sense character growth is about a character becoming more attuned with the reality of the situation of his wants and needs (instead to OUR wants and needs as it happens in "good" emotional growth), but we could totally have character growth in an MC that constantly sheds away his personal relationships if they do not conform to his wants and needs

    But this is mostly done for evil MCs or crapsack world MCs as growing emotionally connected to other people in such scenarios would be dangerous and counterproductive

    Have you read Reverend Insanity yet? It’s xianxia, but I get the feeling it will check a lot of your boxes. (I dropped it after Qidian made it premium, but my understanding is that the author never strays from the “betrayed loner MC” thing. Either way, it’s well translated and worth a shot, as long as you don’t get tired of the author’s quasi-Edgelord philosophical diatribes lol)

    True - though putting a loner MC through the kind of betrayal needed to make a character arc about becoming MORE misanthropic is borderline torture porn lol.

    Evil MCs in relentlessly bleak crapsack worlds...I can only do it if it’s short and has some stylish humor to the POV, plus a dash of satire or black comedy. :blobsob:

    But that’s just me :sushi_peak::sushi_hide:
