    Haha, no problem. Posted this due to EER ending, so the bloodier stuff which I adore as well had temporarily slipped my mind. Who doesn't enjoy their MC going on a murderous walk of carnage every now and then?

    It kinda sounds weird , but i love the events where the mc gains a decent skill or a decent ability . It doesn't have to be heaven defying , only it has to be able to smack the other people faces . Like obtaining the unbeatable brick weapon .

    Oi oi careful with that edge!
    Only if... sometimes it is healthy... Hate it when mc is a wimp who won't use his power to take revenge after being wronged, destroying an enemy/evil organization or two or maybe even a country is pretty healthy

    Might I add that I absolutely hate it when the MC let's someone go and you just KNOW it's coming back to bite him?

    Well I guess I'll be the only other person to vote that I enjoy when MCs go on murder sprees at least depending on what type of character we're following in question and the circumstances. Sure does spice things up when a mostly pacifist protagonist loses his composure and massacres everybody. Enough with the kumbaya everyone lives in peace bullshit, if someone's being a shitter just give them the dick, don't let them step all over you you loser. Don't be such a fucking beta god damn it.

    Well I guess putting it like that it's not really at all the murder part that I enjoy the most. It's seeing an idealistic, pacifistic protagonist finally crack and change their world-view and them doing something completely contradictory to what they were preaching not too long ago. The gap is actually what's so satisfying. Shout-outs to Rimuru Tempest by the way.

    When MC is cooking, and his/her cooking turned people into food addicts.

    Well, I was thinking more of Isekai Shokudou and The Death Mage who Doesn't Want the 4th Time, though...

    I like it when the MC is driven to his limits , and he somehow pulls through against all odds. Perhaps I'm a bit of a masochist.

    I know what you mean. But I perosnally don't really like when the MC pulls a Deus Ex Machina to get through. Exception is when it is for plot development, but whenever an MC pulls through because "he had planned for this situation and these wounds that TOTALLY won't kill him", a sudden impossibly lucky thing like a lucky hit or different external factors. Dunno, I need a satisfactory explanation of how the situation got resolved.

    Yes. Same here.
    .... it really ended? 100% ended? No hints of a sequel or anything?
    I want to know if it's safe to binge everything now.

    My favourite event is pretty much when a mc bitch slaps everyone and commits a slaughter feast

    Yes, Everyone ELse is a Returnee has completely ended. Plus 4 Extra chapters and the Afterword are all put up as well.

    I guess the last extra chapter kinda left something open, but it can be thorougly considered completed.

    I like the parts where the MC and love interest finally get together. :cookie: But I do also like the face-slapping. :blobparty:
