Jinwoo and a couple other survivors of the double dungeon take on a raid at dungeon, and they’re joined by three criminals and their handler. These criminals can take time off their sentence by helping to clear dungeons, but things go south with the handler, and Jinwoo is forced to show some of his overpowered skills in front of the healer and mage from the previous dungeon. Jinwoo is then noticed by a prestigious clan, who have figured out he’s a reawakened being. As Jinwoo’s level finally reaches 40, he is presented with a new quest: job change, where he must survive for an unspecified amount of time and be assessed to see what his classification will be.
This series is very much like reading a video game, so it is definitely appealing to a pretty specific audience. That being said, this is still one of the most entertaining video game stories out there, and the coloring really adds another layer of enjoyment. We get a lot of internal monologue with Jinwoo as he navigates the "system" since he's the only one who can see it. Since this volume also had some folks from the first volume, we also get a little bit of reflection and side-by-sides of Jinwoo from volume one to now. I had forgotten how much he had changed! There is a lot of violence and blood in this volume, as with the rest of the series, so this might be better for a little bit older teen reader.
