    prologue: Why would they store something as rare as this Overlimit Skill Orb in the mine's warehouse rather than the nation's treasury? Or some research institute if there is such a thing? Even more so if it was called something dangerous like World Ruler?

    That aside, I wonder what he'll fill his other six slots with.

    How is the MC supposed to know which Lulusha is his granddaughter? Is the name so uncommon that there's only one in the Federation?

    So far, I'm not terribly impressed with this skill. Its definitely useful, but it doesn't feel ten stars useful.

    C1: "Which means, I automatically learned the 【Orb Detachment】 skill I saw from a distance." Ah, now that's more like what I'd expect from a ten star skill. He should definitely pick up some passive skills that help with perception. I expect World Ruler can't copy them (at least, not easily), and they'd help him to acquire new skills more safely.

    C2: I wonder if he could better copy the skills if he slotted them, used them a few times and then unslotted them. If the inefficiency is due to his lack of perception, then actually being the one to use the skills should fix it I would think.

    C4: "But, what if they ask me where I got this knowledge from?" Well, he could always say that his former master was an alchemist and that he saw the ingredients and saw them cure petrification, but didn't actually know their names or where they came from.

    C8: It seems odd that he didn't find anything he could use to dye his hair during that entire trip.

    I'm coming to despise hot spring chapters/episodes. They just automatically lower my opinion of the quality of a series. They add nothing of value while generally distorting the tone of any series that doesn't already exist in the gutter. Worse, they hardly ever have any originality in them. You can very nearly copy+paste any given hot spring episode into any anime or anime inspired story, change the characters' names, and it'll still work just as well as whatever the author would have written themselves.

    Wouldn't it be far easier to find the items he needs if he got the experienced adventures to help him look?

    "I thought it wouldn’t suit my character then." What? Wtf would he care about that when having black hair can get him killed?

    I'm still not getting why he won't even try to describe what he's looking for to people who might be able to tell him their names. It'd be thousands of times easier to find them if he knew what they were called. As it is, he's relying solely on plot armor to allow him to find them.

    I think he means that he wanted to dye his hair when he was still living in Japan but thought it wouldn't suit him.

    I'm glad LNT picked this series up since their translation quality is usually pretty good, but it sucks waiting a few months for them to catch up to where the old translator left off.

    Yeah, I would have preferred them to start where foxaholic ended and gradually fill in the prologue and chapters 1-16 over several weeks.

    I have to wonder why anyone is even willing to fight Medusas if this is how they'll be treated even if they win.

    I tried reading the LNT version from the beginning since they are so close to being caught up with Foxaholic and I needed a refresher anyway, but I found out this is a case where the LNT version is higher quality

    Their version is full of the same awful "little brother" "big sister" cringe that was in the earlier releases.

    Is it really normal for lightnoveltranslation's website to take at least 3 min, sometimes 10 min to load a page? Its frustrating to binge read this.

    Update: 5th spotify song and its still loading

    I wonder if he'll kick all their butts using their own skills. With Stamina Enhancement, he might actually be able to use them without passing out. Well, except for the magic skills anyway.

    If he does though, then I have to wonder how he'll explain it.

    Honestly, I'm expecting most if not all of his current party members to die rather than him leaving them.

    Well, that was clearly a lie. I guess he thinks the MC didn't hear their conversation.

    I just binged this. The pace seems ok, the release speed is good for a jp novel. The premise seems interesting. Now I only need more chapters to see how the author flesh this out.

    This Author is really good IMO. He has another Novel out called Rule Breaker i think its pretty good. The Systems he comes up with are fresh.

    I wonder if the mythril rank sadist will make it to the city before or after the dragon.
