If you guys wanna get ahead of the story instead of waiting for the manga chapters each month try reading the light novel. Heres a link for the chapters : http://lightnovels.wiki/read/remonster/

I asked the mods to fix the numbers and now they have like spaces and it triggers my ocd

just realized:
-ch 16 and 17 is missing. fix pls. IIRC those were scanned by Tropod thru Rapeman Scans
-it's already June. looks like Jaimini's Box forgot to spit out a chapter or 2

 
I think that Tropod deleted all of his chapters from Batoto. There was probably some issue between him and the mods here.

From what I can tell it's still in order up to "30"...  so with the new numbering "30" seems to be basically 28.2 and "29" is 28.1 which means 27 prolly got split as well with "28" most likely being 27.2 and "27" being the 27.1... so gonna need to do some editing with the numbering to reflect this..

 

That being said so who's actually officially taken over for the scans now? Since its been picked and dropped so many times...

I believe that Jaimini's status still has this on their agenda, and I think it includes the chapters that are missing because their backlog has 5 chapters. It's currently being worked on by the PR and CL. The number on their reader is also messed up as well, but I'll try to tell the mods to get the chapter numbering fixed on Batoto since I don't have any jurisdiction on Jaimini's Box.

I knew this would happen. Then next chapter translated (31, it should be uploaded soon) is the actual ch31 on alphapolis. https://tinyurl.com/nf5jhsv

Translator/raws skipped chapters because of renumbering.

 

I think chapter 29 & 30 on alphapolis are missing/skipped on batoto because of renumbering. 28?,29,30 were split into 2 parts for each chapter on alphapolis. So 28.1, 28.2, 29.1, 29.2, 30.1, 30.2

I feel like this MC is way op as fk. Things go so easily.

 alphapolis changed the chapter numbers and now it's wrong. Chapter 30 on here is really the end of 28 ( I think )

This wasn't "a delightful twist from your usual scenario"! This was the opposite of delightful! 

There aren't any challenges now, but there will be.

Spoiler

But doesn't change the fact that you never fear for his life. Plus all the fights that he loses are because he was too greedy.

Spoiler

 

 

Some guy was telling me how much better the world building is in Kumo desu, so I debunked it. You say Kumo isn't OP, but even in the beginning you have her defeating greater challenges than what the Ogre MC faces in Re:Monster, not to mention what she becomes later in the LN. Kumo's combat has more depth to it, but that's because combat is *all* you get. At least with Re:Monster I wasn't struggling to stay awake while reading.

 

Both of these stories are bad from an objective writing perspective. There are many fanfics which are better written. Just because you like one better than the other doesn't mean they aren't both bad.

I felt that Spirit Migration started really strong, and then they left the dungeon to play fetch quest/bet the sidekick to some random chick ??? It's really sloppy tbh. If they stayed in the dungeon and continued with the whole "unable to communicated with people" and "helps adventurers as a monster" it would have been top of my list.

Personally, I just want Kou to meet Elmerl again. Elmerl was my favorite of the characters Kou has associated with (the Noble girl was my least favorite. Her story arc is just so boooooooooooooring....). I do admit that it would've been interesting for Kou to just anonymously help people all around rather than become a known figure, too. My opinion on the current arc is...."eh, more Kou is nice I guess. Could be better."

ch 30 will the point im dropping this series, its just bland. im sorry but this is just my opinion. i think im just going with goblin slayer instead. cya bois

Comparing this to Goblin slayer is like comparing lead to gold.
Sad that it got licensed so early. Just means it'll get less attention and the english version of the manga will probably be forgotten in obscurity.

At this point we should rename this to Stockholm Syndrome: The Novel

Thanks for the recommendations everyone, but so, mostly just other isekais with humanoids, nothing where their bodies are truly different like in Kumo ga. Wonder if we'll get more goodness like Gon one day...

[Edit]Haha, while searching for the Goblin Kingdom, ended up reading Goblin is Very Strong as someone had messed up series upload.. Well, good either way. XD[/Edit]

Deym sweet update

at least an interesting character appeared...
hope MC would not rape him in the future...

I hope he has 'sex' with everyone he captures so I can masturbate to every page of every chapter, It is a hentai right?

Yes and it doesn't change the fact that Kumo desu is an incredibly dull and tedious story until she leaves the labyrinth.

 

That's the other way around.

Spoiler

Who cares about world building when the world building is shit?  The Re:Monster world is just your generic fantasy game world where the main character constantly levels up and gets OP powers.  At least in Kumo, the main character has some actual personality and constantly has to struggle since she's usually in way over her head.  Sure, she's still stuck in a generic dungeon and also has a penchant for getting a punch of powers and leveling up but at least she doesn't become an OP, unlikable prick like the MC from Re:Monster instantly does.

Kumo at least has to increase her skills and deal with some self doubt. The MC of Re:Monster literally just starts fucking everything up (or just plain fucking it) within the first chapter and every skill he gets is a even more bullshit version of when kids play make believe with each other. "Oh yeah well I shoot a kamehame at you!" "WELL I SHOOT 10 SPIRIT BOMBS AT YOU SO I WIN!"

Yes and it doesn't change the fact that Kumo desu is an incredibly dull and tedious story until she leaves the labyrinth. I had to quickly skim through dozens of chapters just to stop myself from dropping it.

Will he have sex with the new guy?

 

If the author likes fujobucks (he probably doesn't but it won't stop female and fudanshi fans from doing something about it)

There's literally nothing the MC of this comic even struggles with other than which warm hole he's going to shove his dick into next.

he has gone native

Kumo desu ga has no character growth or world building until much later in the LN. It's literally just the MC grinding mobs page after page after page. In the first few dozen chapters, Re:Monster is easily the better story. Kumo gets better after she finally escapes the labyrinth but there are still long periods where nothing interesting happens. If Re:Monster is shit then so is Kumo desu.

It's character growth and world building for a reason. They both use time to show the changes.

In Re;monster the mc is a battle freak who has an absorption skill that got reincarnated as a goblin, so yes he has a better handle on things than a highschool-minded spider who is trying to figure things out in the dark.
