The author:



Though I gotta admit: Good art!

Once again the cycle of "nobody stop to talk, attack first and never listen" continues -   -

The artwork is super cool though. The artist should really think of pairing up with a writer.


It's not that he needs a writer. First sezon proved he can write.

Problem lies in his idea how to do it so he needs someone who will tell him this is bulshit and if I understand correctly (he alredy has such people but don't listen) all these .5 chapters it's his artistic Idea how to do it. Im cool with it. He is an author and he should have freedom to do it how he wants.


But seriously this is overdoing it

This is the most needlessly incoherent comic I have ever read. Hardly any dialogue is completed, almost all characters talk in half sentences which is cool to create suspense but lame when used all the freaking time. The plot itself is totally pointless because I believe the artist completed what he originally had in mind with season 1(which was cool albeit predictable).

I return to this new chapter after months and realize that the terrible narration is still going ahead in full swing. No one knows what the fuck is going on. Including, I think, the artist. Be prepared for twenty more chapters of "But that is" "So the sword is" "But she was" "But you are" etc.

The artwork is super cool though. The artist should really think of pairing up with a writer.

ch. 17.5 Is he trolling us?

I read season 1 for this "traditional fantasy twist" and now I get Shounen. Don't care much for romance. Saw it as twisting romance tag.

So (wild quess ) Loki will become Odin and turn his girlfriend into a doll of salvation all what we need to do is to survive this throught shounen (sic!) to seson III.

Seriously this guy is trolling us so much!

Six months away from bato.to... WHAT DID I MISS???

Why this one haven't got much update?

"The fetish of all men" Wait what? I prefer cat ears though..

Forget ears I'm all about the tails baby!

Wait a minute...I thought it was supposed to be the other way around. So you mean to tell me Loki is in fact like the Loki of DanMachi? Certainly didn't expect that kind of development! YURI WHEN!?

Gungnir datto?!

Gungnir, a sword. LOL.

Season 1 was much more thematic, stylistic, intriguing, and original.


However, the plot was fucking nonsensical. Therefore, I'm liking Season 2 more just for having a coherent story, even if it is more generic and throws all of Season 1 out the window.

Gungnir datto?!

So, the Artist/Author of this Manhua can draw guys, as seen on EGScans credit pages.

But he really needs to work on female bodies.

...this guy sure is going above and beyond the call of duty to get laid.

You gotta go all the way to go all the way. :P

...this guy sure is going above and beyond the call of duty to get laid.

man, this is a better love story than Twilight..(well anything is better than Twilight, even poop is better than Twilight)..

Thor went like "I understand now..."


I think I liked the first season more.  It felt more like a deconstruction of fairytales and shonen fighting series, whereas this one feels like it's playing it straight (just with the hero arbitrarily labeled "demon king".)

Moral of vol 2 ch 15:

Don't piss off the demon lord by torturing his love interest.

The only thing I get is that bad shit goes down, everyone is an asshole and Ragnarok should happen and just end things.

Over 6 months later and we're still in the same basic story point of 'bad shit goes down, everyone is an asshole'. I guess I should've ended my previous statement with 'and it was all an excuse to have cool looking fight scenes.'

If Thor already got killed like that, The demon lord become another "Onepunch man", lolz.

"Too slow!"

"Too weak..."

Shit is about to get real.


this thor version actually seems somewhat acceptable.

Lol, that was good. 
"I'm gonna die....from swinging this sword...it hurts my back ='("

der erlkönig is a poem about fighting desperately against fate, and losing.

it's dark, hopeless, and beautiful. very fitting to call the demon lord erlkönig.

calling the knight "der ritter" really tells the end even before the story begins.

the one who rides is the father who could not save his child.

the world goes under, nothing can be saved. the demon king is fate, or a slave of it.


i don't need shakespearian titles for this one.

A textbook case of "The more you know..."
