    okay so I'm like 10 chapters in- I know it's short, but I kinda wanna drop this book. I hate judging a book from the first few chapters so can someone give me a reason to continue/drop this book? I don't think I can keep reading cause of the "ora ora" it reminds me of Jojo too much. ;-;

      I agree I too don't like the novel that much to read it completely but the manga is good It covers up to 75 chapters of this novel you can read that it's gold tier.

I must say, it's a very fun and interesting novel. That ambition, that passion, that (funny) genius, and a very misunderstood subordinate. This is interesting !!!

If u disconnect your brain and just read 4 fun u will enjoy this LN. If you came looking 4 something serious this is not your cup of tee. The MC is truly retarded but funny, side Characters are great and mostly the story is interesting.
