I meant on this site. =D
It's a novel that's on webnovel if you want to have a look.
No need, see enough dead people for real at work in real life already, no need for the video version.
The author definitely ran out of ideas that's why the plot returned to the OG Webnovel mold.
A logical response after a rant? Sorry M'Lord, we don't do that here. XD
I have to post because I love this novel. Obviously the original poster does too. Without absolutely loving something there's no way you'd get so riled up about it.
That said, he has a point. It was pretty amazing for about 500 ish chapters then it went off the rails into war. I understand the reasoning and I didn't mind that much until the war was longer than the rest of the novel. Every arc I just kept hoping he'd finally get out of the war but it just kept going, like this post.
Good news. After the war the novel is awesome again but now I'm stuck waiting for new chapters.
I love the novel, but I agree with the rant from the bottom of my heart.
The Mech Touch was, I believe, the first novel I read on Webnovel. I have now read over 2500 chapters of other books and I still can't get past the "war" arc in this book b/c it bores me to tears. The first ~400 chapters were awesome, then the war started. The war was pretty badass and I saw a lot of potential plot/character development. Then the war kept going. Then more. Then we got to another system... that the war spread to. Then we had to go somewhere else... due to war reasons. Then we're on a planet for another ~200 chapters (where almost nothing happened). I could go on, but I think you get my point. The "war" arc was almost 2x as long as the actual first 2 arcs combined... it goes from chp. 336 to 1062... almost all of which has no mech design and veeeery little character development.
This novel is the only novel that I've ever read where I can literally glaze my eyes over for almost 1/2 of a chapter, skim another 1/4 of it, and I'm still not lost at the end. You can feel the filler chapters in your bones.
All that being said, the novel is super great in the beginning, I hear it gets super awesome after the war arc (chp. 1063), and the first 300 chapters of war are actually not 1/2 bad. Just a heads up, whenever you get to chp. ~600 or something (wherever it is that he leaves to find the Super Earth [no, this is not a spoiler... it's a broad thing that covers ~300 chapters]), feel free to skim quickly for a long time.
Good luck y'all. Happy reading!
Also, shout out to Rise of the Undead Legion and Paragon of Destruction, two of the best novels I've read on Webnovel that don't do filler, fluff, and have lots of great plot development and world building.
I made this account just to post this comment.
